Why is nobody talking about Wii U? Because apparently nobody owns one. The next-gen console battle is currently a two-horse race.
What's a wii u
"Is that some sort of add-on for the Wii" -- Something I heard someone say at a Gamestop one time.
What's a ps4
Wii U's reckoning.
Thinks its like the sega megadrive or something now 100% sure though
i own a wii u and i love it possibly the best console iv owned and i have had em all, but come on n4g these articles are getting old now, it was reported to day that even dispite wiius not selling as good nintendo still made a profit in the first 6months of this year so even if wii u does fail it really isnt effecting nintendo as much as these nooby articles and journalists are making owt. however i would actually like to see more GAMING NEWS not just copy and paste from other sites its a joke really well this sites wiiu section is anyway.
yea they made a profit barely. If they profit they made is no where close to what they told investors to expect it doesnt matter. You must not understand how corporations with investors work. You dont make them (investors) money they pull their money out, they pull the money out nintendo has less capital to develop games, advertise, manufacture hardware, and no money to develop the next systems. It be like me telling you hey let me borrow $100 I'll pay you back $150 but I end up only giving you back $101. You're not going to let me borrow anymore money. So while these articles may be getting old to nintendo fans its the truth and it just doesnt look good for nintendo. They could turn it around but there's also the very big chance that the wii u, even with a price drop, could be put to sleep by the upcoming next gen console buzz.
I think it will be nintendo's last console, Asda (biggest supermarket in UK) no longer sells it (instore). That is not a good sign, especially such a short time after release. If it sold well, people would stock it and devs would make games.
I've said this on my YouTube channel. Hyperbole and misinformation presented as news leads to people making boneheaded purchasing decisions. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Although I understand Nintendo still has made profit due to the 3DS keeping them afloat, it's a shame that the Wii U sales are less than what Nintendo's forecast was. I still would like to purchase one..not at the current price point or library of games. Once a new Zelda comes out, I'm an immediate sucker.
I want a WiiU.Sadly i cant afford one. But Nintendo will never fail.If they have to leave the console business they will be picked up by Sony and all the titles like Zelda and Mario and all the other legendary title will be ok and better off.
I'd like to love my Wii U. It takes time to grow I guess.. Pikmin 3 I'll be borrowing from my brother. He's an real fanboy of Nintendo. I wanted to buy it but I'm going to buy Tales of Xilia. ^~^'
lol i love the generalization. we get report this morning about wii u sales, and suddenly enthusiasm is falling, just plummeting everywhere. terrible "blog"
Xbox One was released in 2001 Can't believe there bringing it back this fall. Can't wait for Halo , Splinter Cell & Non-HD Graphics in my games. Everyone knows Non-HD is the way to go.
Well let's do the math and use a little common sense, here. The BASIC Wii U console from Amazon, costs $319.99 http://www.amazon.com/Ninte... The BASIC Wii U console from Walmart costs $299.00 http://www.walmart.com/ip/N... Now, obviously pricing structures vary depending where you shop. Now check this out... Sony's PS3 costs $299.00 at Best Buy (Uncharted Bundle) http://www.bestbuy.com/site... Here's a PS3 console for $269.00 at Walmart http://www.walmart.com/ip/P... My point is...the Wii U is too close to the PS3 (and I just used the PS3 as an example here. Could've easily made the same point with XB360)in terms of pricing. Who's gonna buy a Wii U when for 20-30$ more, you could get a PS3? A console that is already established and has a 7 year game library. If Im a parent, shopping for my kids...im gonna take into consideration which console has the most games and better games. Im gonna consider which console has the most to offer, for less. Consumer shopping involves a lot more than just fanboy perspectives. Now, I suppose one could argue that the Wii U is a next gen console and the PS3 is not...and despite the Wii U having a slightly bigger Hemi under the hood, I still havent seen anything from the Wii U that puts the PS3 to shame. When you look at what Sony did for the PS4 and what MS did for the XB1....and then look at what Nintendo did with the Wii U...it's not really a NEXT GEN console. It's just an overglorified Wii...
