How Nintendo Could Still “Win” E3 2013

Carl Daniel of The Koalition writes:
The Wii U is a failure. Sorry to be so blunt but that’s the way it is right now. Consumers aren’t purchasing the console, developers are reluctant to release games for it and even Nintendo themselves seem to be more concerned with the 3DS. The Wii U’s future has been the subject of many debates over the past few months and with E3 approaching, most Wii U owners were hoping that Nintendo would finally silence their critics on our industry's grandest stage.

I wouldn't say the Wii U is a complete failure. They still have a chance to remain relevant. But they definitely in bad shape now, no denying that.

Pretty much. It's off to a really bad start, but that doesn't mean it can't turn around. I remember when the PS3 was "doomed" until Metal Gear solid 4 came out June 14th, 2008 - almost 2 years since launch lol.

that why i be laughing when people be saying wiiu is doomed..ps3 was doomed before it//vita is doomed now...wiiu is doomed because it couldn't keep momentum...we know it can sell but people ignore the fact..just give it 2 years like we did with the ps3..

another thing is can we call it a failure when they can still make a profit even thought it sold a little...

Problem was there was nothing else coming out. The wii and 360 lost their new car smell, so people went out and bought the PS3. The Wii U already lost that new car smell and the PS4 and 720 haven't released. 9/10 aren't going into a Best Buy armed with cash and picking the Wii U over the 720/PS4, and nothing so far is coming out before that to change one's min. Not that I think the Wii U will bankrupt Nintendo, hardly...but I can easily see the Wii U selling Gamecube like numbers.I hope I'm wrong, time will tell

But Playstation always had a stronger fan base. After the success of PS1 and 2, fans knew that Sony was going to delivery while they wait. Don't forget that it had new technology at the time, and it was the cheapest Blu-Ray player around too. Nintendo was struggling since the N64 days til now. As a matter of fact it bite Nintendo in the ass when they screwed Sony. Yes for people that don't know Nintendo and Sony once work with each other. Nintendo screwing Sony, created the Playstation, which could of been all Nintendo. I was a Nintendo fanboy once, and not afraid admit that I was Jealous of the success of playstation, because it was dishing out more games than N64. It had the Tomb Raider, the Resident Evil, Twisted Metal, Metal Gear Solid, Tekken, and most of the third party combine at the time. N64 had it's first party and very little third party support, but it was the game console that made FPS possible on home consoles. Thanks to the release of Goldeneye and Perfect Dark, all what Nintendo really need. Then Gamecube came along with Xbox, but after the PS2(dammit!). It all continue to go downhill with the Gamecube. That generation I just got the Xbox instead, but played alot of Gamecube over my friend house(Love Melee, Eternal Darkness, and etc). Plus my brother had a Gamecube too so I didn't need to buy it. Now this current generation came, and I decided to stop being a fanboy, and just be a fan of games. I eventually got all consoles including the Wii. I play my 360/PS3, but Wii not so much cause it was collecting dust due to once again lack of third party support and not much good games. disappointment upon disappointment Nintendo!!! This new gen PS4 will be the first system I am getting, but Nintendo Wii U will be my last console to get this upcoming generation, whenever Smash Bros 4 releases. Heres hope that Nintendo Wii U delivery E3!!! Win back those third party support Nintendo!!!

And the wii wasn't a success, Ashunderfire86? The wii didn't build a fanbase for Nintendo like the PS2 did?

I think it would most likely a remake than a sequel ...

BlackWolf1795d ago

I'd a new Star Fox to the mix..

Wii U is done. They should just announce Mario for Nextbox

JuleyJules1795d ago

Keep dreaming. Nintendo will NEVER develop for other systems. That only happened when they started over 30 years ago when Donkey Kong/Donkey Kong Jr were on Colecovision, Intellivision and Atari 2600. That was all before they came out with the NES.

Moonman1795d ago

I would NEVER play Mario on an xbox!

Outside_ofthe_Box1796d ago

Sure Nintendo can have and I hope will have a great E3, but I can't really see them "winning" it when you consider that their competition are showing off new consoles. New tech always excites.

Nivalis1796d ago

'its not the winning its the taking part that counts' nintendo arent even taking part in the big conferences and the big conferences are what everyone uses to decide who 'won', thus by not holding one nintendo cannot win by default.

gamer421796d ago (Edited 1796d ago )

I thought you "won" by showing the actual games and features for your console, have I been wrong all this time?
