Despite being out for almost a year, the Wii U is still being confused as a Wii accessory. If Nintendo wants to end the confusions and lift Wii U sales up, then they need to give their console a much-needed makeover.
Either give it a makeover or drop the price. Why is it so difficult for Nintendo to get it together? ;)
Ok, apparently whoever is holding that contest is to lazy to find out what is they're giving away.
well maybe if they didn't give it a name as stupid as the "wii u" this wouldn't be a problem.
Ok wii u does sound dumb, Wii Ultra i think wuld b a little better
How about crystal clear Wii 2? Duh
Thats interesting you say that. Remember when they first revealed the Wii U name? They actually said Wii to U. Why not just go with that: Wii-2-U. I can see the U sticking more than the Wii moniker, but I am sure they will be fine. If there is room for the Xbox name, there is room for the Wii U name. People will catch on and relaize its a new system once some more quality games are shown. Thats what sells and Nintendo has a pretty solid lineup coming in the next 6-7 months. The 2014 lineup will blow people away, I just know it. Mark my words now if you want. The Wii U will get its killer apps.
Once the release schedule is heating up and a couple more title get out there, we will see a drop. I woul also expect an upgraded system or a new bundle soon to go along with the price drop. At one point I also thought they needed to re-brand the console, but I also felt that way about the 3DS. Nintendo proved that they can show the masses that there is differentiation between the two DS's so I am confident they can do it with the Wii U. I personally still think they should have called it the Nintendo revolUtion, so they could go with the U still. I never cared for the Wii moniker and still dont. But this really is a nice system Nintendo has put together here. I think some true gamers are going to miss out on some great content if they shun the Wii U. I love my 360 and ps3 as much as anyone, and the Xbone and ps4 both look fantastic for sure. Buth there is just something special about Nintendo franchises and once they get the ball rolling, I honestly feel Nintendo will have some pretty special stuff on display for this console. They will "will" this system to success, just as they did the 3DS, against all odds I might add.
3ds lol It's not mentioned because we are not talking about Nintendo failure. We're talking about WiiU. And what is success come Xmas? A million units sold? I promise you WiiU will not be a must have come Xmas. Ninny dropped the ball. Now ps4/xbone will dominate media and minds.

Holy crap! Ninny new ip that will rocket sales sky high! "Make over my mom!" Lol Pad can be used to draw on make up! And choose preset hair styles! It'll be a system seller I'm tellin' ya!
They have: - They made it blatantly clear with the first commercials. - They sent out an email to all original Wii owners, advertising the NEW system and why they should UPGRADE. - They brought their E3 titles to Best Buy and Gamestop. - They're sponsoring the T.V broadcast of Tour de France with the Wii U. - They've had tour after tour showing off the system. - The console looks quite different from the Wii. - The entire packaging is different. - The game cases are completely different. I get the name can cause some confusión - but now, it's just gotten to the point where it's obvious that people these days just aren't that bright. They don't read, nor care to. If you don't outright tell them most things - they'd never get it. As to how all of these efforts that Nintendo HAS done have gone unnoticed and people are still getting confused is beyond me.
