Playfire Chat: Wii Need U

Playfire: "The launch of the PS4 and Xbox One has been an indicator for Nintendo. One year since launch, there's really no doubt about the quality of the Wii U - recent games like Mario 3D World and Pikmin 3 prove the mastery of Nintendo's greatest developers - but the numbers are worrying. What can be done?" (Knack, PS4, Super Mario 3D World, Wii U, Xbox One)

Nintendo is appealing to a crowd that is no longer there

Nintendo needs two things to get people on board with its console. One is broad third party support. The safest and easiest way for Nintendo to allow this is through Cloud game streaming. They could for example partner up with OnLive and instantly have graphically demanding games like Crysis at decent settings streaming on WiiU if the bandwidth is there and so forth. Although not ideal for everyone it does put an option on the table.

Two is to move WiiU units. Only way that happens is through price drops at this point. Although I suspect some strong Nintendo titles will help. Nintendo's only games seem to be mainstream G rated stuff. They are only appealing to one audience. They need to expand that a bit.

Playfire is okay. It just isn't special.
