The Official WiiU Funeral


Friends, gamers, countrymen, lend me your ears. I come to bury WiiU, not to praise him. The evil that videogame companies do lives after them, the good is oft interred with their obsolete hardware. So let it be with WiiU… The noble 3DS hath told you WiiU was unambitious: If he were so, it was a grievous fault, and grievously hath WiiU answered it… Here under leave of 3DS, I come to speak at WiiU’s funeral, and to answer the unanwered question: What the Hell is Nintendo doing?

I'm looking forward to the Wii U's first-party games, but this is funny.

LOL_WUT1674d ago

Even the Dreamcast paid its respects. Interesting video thumbs up! ;)

iGAM3R-VIII1674d ago (Edited 1674d ago )

Agreed, this is a pretty funny video, well set up and all.

best mock video I have seen in a while

Though the Wii U should come out of its grave when we see E3 come with some new IP's and games

HammadTheBeast1674d ago

I think they excluded the N64 cause it actually succeeded? I don't know lol.

AliTheSnake11674d ago

did he rip on the ps3 at 3:08 ?
That was unfunny and meaningless

zeee1673d ago

Now this is hilarious! Funny and well made! Good job brothers :)

MoveTheGlow1673d ago

Yeah, it was really well-made! And the possible resurrection at the end really drives it home - the WiiU really has been dead for months, but you never know what it could wind up becoming. The Dreamcast didn't have that many games either, but it was super-fun. Get some good companies behind this thing, and it might just rise from its grave like Altered Beast.

wow. nintendo fans must have a lot of time on their hands.

there sure are a LOT of angsty wii u owners commenting below. don't hate the player. hate the lack of's not our fault. it's funny! at least you got new super mario bros wii u?

UnHoly_One1673d ago

Of course they have a lot of time on their hands...

It's not like they have any games to play or anything...

KimiRaikkonen1673d ago

Don't foget that Vita has worse numbers than wii u. Wii u is still alive but vita is dead in the water. There is an even funnier video on Vita on youtube

DarkHeroZX1673d ago (Edited 1673d ago )


Vita is beating the Wii u in hardware and software according to vgcharts.

Fairchild Channel F1673d ago

“Okay, Pai Mei…Here I come.”

AngelicIceDiamond1673d ago (Edited 1673d ago )

Hmmm I'm assuming Xbox couldn't make it?

EDIT: Funny indeed but I hope Wii U "rises from its grave "come E3, Michael Jackson style.

omi25p1673d ago

Nah the Xbox was in the house being played.

No one was playing the other consoles.

Knight_Crawler1673d ago (Edited 1673d ago )

Good show old chap - now make one for the PS VITA and Kinect...before you hit the disagree button, ask your self "what would geewizz do".

BullyMangler1673d ago

so what does this vid mean for the vita? ha ha haaa

TekoIie1673d ago

That was a pretty clever video XD

Would be a shame if it turned into a reality though. Things arent looking great for the Wii U atm and if the current trend continues it'll be dead in the water in 2 years.

I have faith Ninty can turn things around :)

lol wow..gotta be the funniest of doom articles.
that said I still think the wiiu will be all right. but if they show nothing I haven't already seen at e3 I may wait till next year to purchase.

jcnba281674d ago

Does anyone know where this Wii U is buried so I can dig it up myself and keep it?

iGAM3R-VIII1674d ago (Edited 1674d ago )

I doubt they actually buried it, they just buried the box...

it's kinda obvious, unless the person is a complete idiot and actually did bury it, but again, I doubt he did

gamer421674d ago

I'm pretty sure he was joking.

iGAM3R-VIII1674d ago


Yea probably, but you never know with these insane people on N4G sometimes

LOL_WUT1674d ago

Funny thing is I don't he was joking!

I don't understand why they excluded the N64 what was that all about? And some commenters in here need to lighten up you guys know who you are ;)

n4f1674d ago

oh the irony
LoL_wut doesn't understand trolling!!!

Sarick1673d ago

He still has all those other obsolete consoles. I doubt he'd really bury it if he still has the original NES and other old console in his arsenal.

lizard812881673d ago

Maybe they'll dig it back up when there are games worth playing on it.

zippycup1673d ago

wait there are insane people on n4g why dident anybody tell me this

oof461674d ago

Wize from your gwave!

specialguest1674d ago

You could find it buried at the same place as all of the Atari E.T cartridges.

KimiRaikkonen1673d ago

It might be found in the same burial ground where vita is rotting

DragonKnight1673d ago

@Kimi: Just because you can't afford a Vita is no reason to keep trolling around about it, especially when your trolling is completely off topic.

cee7731673d ago (Edited 1673d ago )


show some compassion you clearly see kimi is grieving let him vent his frustrations


sorry for your loss I'm here for you if you want to talk about it

KimiRaikkonen1673d ago

I get your point that the vita is not selling because no one can afford a $249 console but everyone can afford a 3ds or it maybe that no one wants a vita. A serial troll like u calling me a troll for speaking the truth lol.

miyamoto1674d ago

lol, very funny indeed!

Lucreto1674d ago

It's funny but way too early to say that yet.

It was said about the PS3 for the first 2 years and look what happened.

Sarick1673d ago

I see the Wii sitting on my table. I have over 50 PS3 titles and only 1 purchased Wii disk game. What do I use my Wii for? NETFLIX..

IMHO Nintendo didn't do enough this gen to make Wii interesting. I'm a rabid JRPG fan like Tales of series and Grandia. They never made a Crono trigger, and the only Tales game I bought was a flop.

I doubt Wii U will far any better then the Wii did for me so I chose not to buy it.

Lucreto1673d ago

I never owned a Wii but my brother did. He has about 10 games for it but they are good ones. I love JRPG's as well. There are 3 good ones out in the last year I plan to play when I get the Wii U around the Wind Waker HD launch.

I expect a Wind Waker bundle pack around launch or Christmas.


Don't worry, that guy probably just made the video for a good laugh, obviously he have a lot of different consoles so probably an open minded fella. He even ended with a "the end?" question, so it can come out of that grave, probably Pai Mei style.

I think we all understand that WiiU (and, even more, Ninty) is fine as long as we see more games, it's just a slow start. It's not like Ninty an really go wrong, they have a huge fan base that'll probably take notice on reknown IPs and they don't care so much about the technological disparity that everyone keep bringin' up...

Aside from a troll here and there and the most stubborn fanboys that just loves the doom and gloom articles, I believe that by now everyone would agree that there is enough room in market for all big 3, if competition didn't ddied after PS2 complete domination, they sure as hell are not going anywhere considering current gen results, despite all the different approaches. Good for us.
