Yeah just like the Vita got a Price Drop so does the Wii U need one
The Wii U doesn't need a price drop, it's already being sold for less then it's actually worth.
A price drop worked wonders for the 3DS so i dont see why it cant work well for the Wii U especially with their holiday line up.
A price drop is a good thing for WIIU and Nintendo will go whit a price drop for sure. even if the Big N get a loss in WiiU ya need to remember that Nintendo consoles have amazing exclusive and people normaly buy nintendo consoles to play nintendo games. loose in console to gain in software, this is something that can work very well for nintendo.
The price drop is the dumb answer. Better games with system purchase is the smart value.mariokart, X, dkcf, or sm3du would be golden. Digital downloads of hd remixes of current $80 plus wii games would move tons also. plus if you were to buy it at a cheaper price what games would you get?

Less than it's actually worth? It's worth under $200 at its current state.
Your right WiiU is being sold at a loss,due to edram basically,that memory and especially the edram cache that is ridiculously expensive its why pc's dont use it and it costs more than ps4's system RAM that's for sure,and edram is used to push powerful processor's to extreme levels,wiiu already has a custom E6760 couple that with tons of edram and you have a beast... Ps4 could be less if they lowered the on board storage ie HDD,just like WiiU has a controller that will be say $50/£40 more than say a ps4 controller,it all evens out,the GAMEPAD or HDD are nothing power related yet make both consoles about £40 more than they should be think about it,only ps4 doesn't need all that storage,but WiiU does need the GAMEPAD so if anything Sony are giving you something that's not needed for your game experience and it drives up the cost of the machine,WiiU's GAMEPAD is part of the dual screen experience the WiiU offers and is very much something they have to include,not ps4's HDD ???
Falcon- Embedded RAM - at least in the case of the Wii U- is being used claw back some performance out of the awful cell phone RAM that Ninty stuffed into their console. 8GB of DDR3 with ESRAM is much better and 8GB of GDDR5 shits all over Nintedo's "solution".
Only way price goes down is selling Gamepad separately which is not gonna happen
Nintendo have not put anything on wiiu that drives up cost everything is integral to the experience,unlike ps4 with an over expensive HDD when they could just let consumers buy their own HDD which is cheaper and better.
A price drop is always welcomed in my books.
No need for a price drop on WiiU,ps4 needs to drop that poor amount of HDD as most gamers will eat it up in a year or less and need to get a 3rd party HDD so why not just take the 32GB approach of WiiU as it makes the console cheaper and if your going to end up buying a bigger HDD anyway why over charge consumers on a pathetic amount of HDD ?? I have a 2TB HDD made by Toshiba and it runs beautiful on wiiu.....
Ubisoft is awesome, they support everybody, and don't whine like most of the studios nowadays. I seem to have a taste for low selling plataforms (lol), but Ubisoft is always there.
You got to give them credit. Releasing AC4 and Watchdogs on Wii U and Rayman: Legends on Vita while other devs just ignore them.
the low sellers are more hungry for sells, so they seem to have better quality games. just look at Dreamcast and Gamecube
Ubisoft has so much faith in the Wii U that they needlessly delayed the Wii U version of Rayman Legends... Actions > Words
Red steel 3 please... if you really believe. Make a 3d brawler!
They support the vita well enough. ( still want my splinter cell).
I really hope people start buying more of their games on the Wii U and Vita so Ubisoft can be assured they've made a good investment and continue to support both systems. I got Blacklist on my Wii U recently and have been loving it.
I love Ubi. They need to bring more games to Vita ASAP
you think ubi will also choose vita for that "child of light" game it uses rayman legends "engine" and i dont think its a kind of game who is hardware intensive.... well i just hope so, it looks beautiful to me ^_^
That game does look beautiful. Would be great on the PS Vita, kind of reminds me of Dragon's Crown artistic style mixed with Rayman's.
People screaming price drop are full of it. Retailers have been been dropping the price and putting the system on sale all year. If price was n issue then they would have sold more systems. It's all about the games. What makes a system have more value than others it's the games. For those who are bragging about power the Wii U will be the first system to have games running native 1080p 60FPS. So I guess there goes the power theory.
Not the first. Wipeout and GT5 run in native 1080p 60fps. To be fair thats only 2 games lol.
GT5 doesn't run at native 1080p.
Just few examples: Ridge Racer 7 = 1920x1080 60fps Wipeout HD = 1920x1080 60fps
Ninja Gaiden Sigma on PS3 was native 1080p, 60fps also. Came out in 2007 for fuck sakes and Ridge Racer in 2006. Ridge Racer 7 was a launch title also. ... and he going on about 1080p, 60fps and how it translates into power...? Yea clearly, so much power.. If it could be done in 2006 with a launch title on a system with 256mb of RAM and 256mb of VRAM..
Seriously what is with most you hardcore Nintendo fans. You guys seriously believe Nintendo has done everything first. It gets so old. You have posted this more than once also.. Do you even own a Wii U or are you really just that delusional? Not every single game on Wii U is running at 1080p 60fps. So give that a rest will you? Its far from the first system to achieve that also. I own one and even I know that. You can look on the back of many of your Wii U game boxes and see many of them are in 720p. Pikmin 3 - Outputs in 1080p, renders in 720p. Trine 2 - 720p. Wonderful 101 - Outputs in 1080p, renders in 720p New Super Mario Bros. U - 720p Nintendoland - 720p Also what is with a lot of you thinking 1080p, 60fps has anything to do with power? It really depends on the type of game obviously. Not much to do with power at all. Just goes to show how misinformed you really are, you really think the Wii U is the first system to actually have native 1080p, 60fps games.. Wii U is great but if it is pushing out some 1080p titles like Mario Kart 8 and Bayonetta 2 with only a 3 core CPU, 1GB of RAM and its GPU. You can surely put two and two together to see the PS4 and Xbox One can do the same if not more. I mean the specifications on the Wii U aren't even comparable to these new systems at all, its a fact they are way more powerful. So if you want to talk about power, you should definitely know the PS4 and Xbox One shouldn't be so easily underestimated. Especially if you are sitting here acting like the Wii U is god. What is ironic is that these die hard Nintendo fans all used to claim graphics aren't important. Now that is literally all you talk about just like people with Sony or Xbox systems. Funny how that works out. You guys thought you were so elitist before but now since the Wii U finally has HD gaming.. You feel the need to act like everyone other fan that you guys always made fun of.
yeah you mad, bro.
