5 Reasons The Wii-U Is Failing

Compared to the Wii the Wii-U is flopping hard sales wise. Everyone expected not to be able to find one for some time but even during the Christmas rush you could still find them. here are our reasons why the Wii-U is failing. (Nintendo, Wii U)

None of those reasons are flat-out wrong, but instead of heaping the hate on the Wii-U, we should be asking ourselves if it is "failing" because it's the Wii-U, or if it is "failing" because of a bigger problem.

I'm in the latter camp. Vita is also "failing", and the 3DS is doing...okay. The market doesn't have the same sort of mad cash that it did when the 7th-gen consoles launched. Just watch. After the first holiday burst of sales, the PS4 and Xbone will be in the exact same camp next spring/early summer. Watch.

I don't know if this is true-

-but if people look at the current PS3 and 360 sales, they should reason that many people won't be in any hurry to Upgrade.

There are so many games coming to Current Gen and so many games that the late adopters haven't played yet.

Like you and many other people, I think Next Gen is going to take longer to start striving.

to the authour . the wiiU failing? ha haaa not gonna read the article but let me guess, because it has no REAL games yet but zombieU and he wiiU sales?

so the author is saying that Justin Bieber is winning every other artist because his sales?? fail with the sale of things

if so then why kant some people come to see that we are not supposed to be locked up playing videogames for so long . Nintendo is in no rush to facinate us, because they know sony has great games too, they already know microsoft has bayonetta . .

but the author of this peace sounds so desperate for games games games, kinda like what charlie brown from snoopy would sound like past puberty.

wiiU failing toward who besides themselves that matters?


Nintendo is where they are supposed to be

i could give 5 reasons why the wii u will still be a success:

1) 1st party games like smash bros, mario kart, zelda, mario and metroid
2) Free online
3) Free playable used games
4) Intuitive controls
5) Backwards compatibility

Damn good reasons. And it will get closer to a $200 price tag before it's rivals.

Hmm... the Xbox 360 & PS3 must have been failing too because their launch sales were even worse than Wii U.

ok so the only people going to upgrade to wii u ps4 and XBONE is gamers and fanboy your not gana get moms and grandma this gen and sales of the wii u is proving that. and like I said 3 years ago the newer systems are gana be like gen 6 dreamcast gamecube ps2 and xbox. pretty much this is gana be a hard core yeah HARD CORE gamer gen were the gimmicks and all that party shit is going out the window. and honestly I hope wii u is going to compeat with ps4 and xbone cause I felt the ps2 xbox and gamecube was the perfect era of gaming just like ps1 and n64.
