The Wii U will fail

Nintendo's upcoming console might be a fantastic gaming platform, but it's up against competition it can't possibly beat: its predecessor.

I won't go and accuse the article of blasphemy. Everyone's entitled to their point of view.

However, I think it's too early to judge since we only know the bare bones of the Wii U and its business plan. We don't even know all of the launch titles yet. Heck we don't have a single confirmed first party title outside of Pikmin 3.

And if you get on my case because the Wii U is "outdated tech," kindly click on this link and watch the video.

Aw I want the authors time machine

No time machine required. This is based on specs revealed from dev kits and whatever confirmed information was unveiled. Watch the video for the comparison.

Nintendo will throw another Mario game and Zelda for Wii U. That's enough for Nintendo to sell the console.

Going by that logic, the PS3 failed as well...seeing as the PS3 sold 150 million units. The f*ck out of here, son.

I think your PS3 sales figures are off by about 80 million units. SO CLOSE!

I think he meant to type PS2 there.

the same way the Wii and 3DS were supposed to fail, right?

For some reason I have the feeling people have a wrong use of words.

I think they are going for "personal disappointment". Ever since the Wii was revealed everyone has been opting for some image that is supposedly been Nintendo since the NES.

You know, even if Wii-U fails. I'm sure their first party games will see the light. And I can't imagine how awesome these iterations will be.

Just give me F-zero Nintendo...With track editor....DO IT.

GCN and N64 were both deemed failures, yet they were profitable for Nintendo. DS and Wii were predicted to be failures and they were incredibly successful. 3DS was assumed to be a failure after a slow launch, but now even that one has sold better than the DS (if comparing the amount of time it's been out, as oppose to total sales).

Wii U will find an audience. Nintendo created one with the Wii and 3DS. I highly doubt many of the new fans of Mario (who bought 3D Land and Mario Kart 7) as well as the Galaxy and Party games will not get a Wii U to enjoy "Mario with better graphics." Same goes for Zelda.

And you know what? That's okay. Because Halo/Gears of War fans flock to the Xbox and Uncharted/Ratchet fans flock to the Playstation. This is okay because it's because these consoles find their audience.

New Mario game 2013
New Smash Bros game 2014
New Zelda 2016

(I am basing this off the release dates of Super Mario Galazy, SSB Brawl, and Skyward Sword for the Wii, if you are wondering)

What's your point? No seriously I'm a HUGE Nintendo fan..yet I can't quite decipher exactly what you're trying to say?

Relientk772170d ago (Edited 2170d ago )

Its not really positive or negative. I'm just stating what I think will happen.

(Because Super Mario Galaxy, SSB Brawl, and Skyward Sword are all great games)
