Most likely as Nintendo's Dreamcast. I personally didn't buy one, not a fan of the Wii era, but anyone I've talked to online/in person that did invest in one loves it.

Dreamcast was way better, and still is.

Tried to take the casual market from the Wii with them, but failed to do so starting with the naming confusion (no idea why Nintendo didn't use 'Wii 2' instead). Had some great games on the system but a lack of exposure, still opting with trying to take the casual market instead. The lack of enticing price drops on the console due to the expense of the Wii U Tablet.

A failure but it had a good idea on paper but it didn't work

Agreed it was a commercial failure. But perhaps an idea a little ahead of the technological curve. I'd say their second attempt at hybrid handheld is off to a great start.

Nintendo's Quick Cash Grab.

13 Million suckers who fell for it.

No I don't think it was a cash grab. I mean they had an interesting concept but it didn't translate right and it was poorly marketed.

The tablet was the only thing stopping me from buying one. I think it was responsible for about half of the manufacturing cost. I would have rather had them make beefier hardware instead, or even just cut the price and include a regular controller. I didn't like it at all, and didn't want to pay more for something I didn't want.
