The Time is Now
sounds too much like "the time is now, Playstaion Now". they should get a better slogan
they need new games, not new slogans. good games too
pretty sure there are plenty of good games, but if you want to act like there are none..
Slow news day?
Do Wii U commercials even show on TV? Since it's launch, I have never seen a commercial on tv for it. Granted, I rarely watch tv, just curious. I just figure if they did plenty of advertising on tv, I'd hear more people talking about it
I watch TV almost daily and can tell you that since Wii U's launch I've seen a Wii U commercial only ONCE. And Nintendo wonders why it doesn't sell. I still remember Wii commercials everywhere with the two japanese guys arriving to a random house in a white/blue Smart and saying the words "Wii would like to play". I don't understand why Nintendo didn't try something like that again with the Wii U, that was a great marketing campaign.
I Have NEVER seen a Wii U commercial. I see Xbox one commercials constantly, and occasionally a Ps4 commercial like the diablo and destiny ones. Nintendo REALLY needs to step up on the marketing
I question how many people actually watch TV anymore, because everything I watch is on the internet now. I can't stand TV, so many god damn commercials and it cost more than it does to have internet for a bunch of crappy channels you never even watch. I do know Nintendo had a lot of commercials for the Wii U on the web, Hulu aired Wii U commercials non-stop for a long while with NSMBU, Lego Batman and Just Dance. I think the problem with that though it wasn't advertised well really because they showed nothing but kids with the NSMBU and Lego Batman commercials and then for the Just Dance commercial they showed grandmas dancing. They didn't bother advertising any of their better games or more mature games. I just think when you are trying to sell a product it is good to appeal to as many people as possible not just grandmas and kids. Games like Just Dance and Lego Batman don't really appeal to a huge audience and for NSMBU they could have shown more people enjoying the game other than kids with their parents. Regardless it was poorly marketed, I just know they tried in other venues than cable television and I think at least that was a smart move but a wasted effort on their behalf.
You would think cable or satellite wouldn't cost nearly as much as it does with all the commercials.
I only ever seen them on kids channels like Nic.
No you haven't.
Actually true no point in arguing lol. I wish it weren't.
I've seen Pikmin and Mario 3D World commercials but not much else.
I still prefer the sound of "Come get U some!", personally...
The Wiiu now has a great line up of games and also a great price too. Nintendo need to start pushing the Wiiu like they did the 3DS when they re launched it as it could work well for them as the console has some very underrated games that people would love like Lego City, Pikmin 3, Wonderful101 etc.
As far as United States goes, Wii U had two TV ads for Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze and Mario Kart 8 for this year (I think Mario Kart was also briefly promoted in some movie theaters too). It's unknown yet it Bayonetta 2, Hyrule Warriors or Capt. Toad will receive TV ads overseas, but Smash Bros will obviously have one. As for 2013, Pikmin 3 had a TV ad, Lego City had a TV ad during Wii U's November launch campaign, as well as TV ads for Super Mario 3D World. Game & Wario, Wind Waker HD, Wii Fit U and Wii Party U didn't receive TV ads here in the United States. However, Wind Waker HD did have brief appearance in a Wii U montage TV ad if I'm not mistaken. There was also another TV ad for Wii U's $300 price point called "The Pitch, which I think featured Super Mario 3D World.
It's similar to SNK slogan ''the future is now'' Btw, love the WII U name.
This will work if, and ONLY if, Nintendo puts out a commercial where the Nintendo IP character are lead by Mario (in a Rambo garbed), sneaking into Sony/MS's building, then slitting the throat of a famous PS/XB character (Nathan Drake/Master Chief) from the shadows, showing Mario leading the charge against previously mentioned company with his patented "Lets go!", then a camera pan up to the night sky with the words "The Time Is Now" fading onto the screen.
"The power lies within U" "Now you re playing with power, U power" "U are not ready" "U jump in"
"The time is now!" Good slogan. In my head, I hear it with a Dunban(Xenoblade)-style voice.
