Roundtable: Is the Wii U Doomed?

The VGUTV staff share their opinions on if the Wii U is doomed or if there is hope for Nintendo's fans. (Mario Kart 8, NintendoLand, Super Smash Bros., Wii U)

I'm just not sure about the future of the Wii-U. If Nintendo doesn't get their act together and put out some of that killer software that they're famous for, then the console is doomed I'd say. However I guess we need to wait until the Christmas season and see how the little box sells against the likes of the PS4. I predict a price cut to stay in the ballgame. If not, then it could be curtains.

Yup if it does poorly during the holiday, when there are plenty of games to help move units, then it is in trouble

wii-u is not doomed when you look at games like wonderful 101 coming out on sept 15th. The demo is fun as hell to play.

Now i wouldnt mind a wii-u version of Doom though. Doom 3 or even doom 4 would be nice to have.

Wii U doesn't have to be number one sales wise to be successful

" Is the Wii U Doomed?"

No.
It had a bad stretch. Every console goes through that. They'll be fine.

Off course it's doomed! It's been doomed since 1889!

Yes the Wii U iz teh Doomz...lol i don't think it's doomed until Nintendo completely stops releasing games for it or the sales completely tank which is very unlikely.

It needs better third party support. And a unified account system. And better marketing.

agreed

Oh it's coming. Nintendo claimed that you would be able to purchase games from your phone/PC/tablet and the Wii U will download it automatically because it has a stand by mode just like PS4/Xbox One. Also that would mean a unified system account. A leak was also found out that the 3DS had the Wii U's eShop so probably, 3DS and Wii U accounts will also merge in the next system update this late September.

How many times have they asked this?

i think nintendo is living in a world of delusion they couldn't even outsell the current gen systems this last christmas what makes them think they will outsell the new gen systems this year, if i didn't have one of those systems i wouldn't have bought the wii-u. As a Nintendo fan I must say Nintendo failed with their Nintendo direct
