RUMOR: Rockstar doesn't even try building a new audience with Wii U owners, and if Wii U starts selling better than it is now, Rockstar still won't because they don't want to admit they were wrong, still think third-parties don't sell on Nintendo systems, thus creating yet another self-fulfilling prophecy. #3

I wish I could afford one, as there ARE games I'm wanting. Those who say there's no games have their heads buried in the sand. #1

It's almost a self-fulfilling prophecy. Third-parties say the install base is too small, so they don't release games. However, games are the thing that get people interested in a console. Then Nintendo doesn't try to overshadow third-parties at launch(something third-parties complain about often) so Nintendo doesn't release much. Third-parties then are still unhappy.

Meanwhile, consoles with zero install base (PS4 and NextBox) are already getting loads of supp... #8

I've pretty much surrendered the idea that Nintendo would ever get their third-party situation, especially with the West, in high gear. Nintendo consistently makes the same broken promises ("oh, we'll have third-parties on board", "oh, we won't have a drought", "oh, we won't overprice our system", etc.).

The Wii U constantly gets nothing but bad news. However, somehow I'm still enjoying my system. I know that I will not own a... #32

That's also a great one. We've previously listed the Colossus of Rhodes from GoWII and the Minotaur from the original GoW. Poseidon will most likely be in a future installment of our ongoing series. #3.2

We haven't listed those before, so thanks for those ideas for future installments! #1.1.1

There wasn't even as much genre fatigue for me with the 90's platformer craze than there is for me and FPS games. (And the 90's platformer craze was immense.) So tired of this schlock and it getting hyped all the time, bought by some many. I understand they are fun, but in small doses. I don't need a new FPS every week. Perhaps that's why I'm hoping the Wii U finally does well, because just like the Wii, that system seems like it could offer more variety than a plethor... #1.2

A relaunch with a strong marketing campaign, ads which clearly state that the Wii U is not an add-on to the Wii, and a price cut with a steady supply of games alongside it would make the Wii U do better. Without a steady supply of games, a price cut would be a really short term solution that wouldn't do much for the long term. #2

Yes, but you say it like Nintendo won't be at E3 at all. They will, they just won't have a presentation. E3 is also becoming less and less important, as the past years have clearly shown. #4.1.3

This is really awesome. I love Miiverse, and now I can easily share screens and pictures done in Miiverse. I don't need to take press shots for reviews-- I can take my own now! :D #1

Why bother competing at E3 when there's two important consoles going to be fighting it out for attention?

Nintendo can plan their own events on their own time and dime, get media attention, and be the talk of the day or week they plan their own event. They won't have to compete for attention that way. I like the idea. I don't think it will be just Nintendo Directs either. #4.1

I liked The Lost Frontier and Daxter on PSP, but it would have been nice to see Naughty Dog back on a true platformer. They seem to care more about making games as close to blockbuster action movies as possible now. #3.2

Good picks, WiiUsauce. We were deliberating and deliberating so much on this list! #4.1

Yes. Another great choice! #2.1

The moment people stop giving attention to people who think humor comes from being controversial, the better. #11

Can't wait. I'm excited to see the pace of releases. Hopefully it won't be one game a week like the 3DS, but then again, it's Nintendo... #6

Agreed on the account system, definitely.

But I see why releases are staggered. It's so games aren't overlooked. If all released at the same time, people would only play and buy the popular games and ignore the lesser titles. #1.1

I think there's some confusion with this article, and people are just reading the headline and nothing else.

We're not saying the Xbox 360 lost to the PS3 in sales, or that Microsoft is the loser in the console wars. What we're saying is that the PS3 had more features and games that appealed to us personally, and that's how it won to us. Just our opinion. The fact of the matter is that the 360 did phenomenally and Sony stumbled quite a bit compared to last gen... #18

No, I am referring to commenters on SPC. Kietz is just fine. He didn't call anyone names, act fanboy-ish or be totally disrespectful. #13.1.1

We're already getting comments on the site from very angry (most likely fanboys of other consoles) gamers. And some of you wonder why this industry isn't taken seriously when we have people who get their pants in a wad over something that isn't for once a negative article in the game industry.

EDIT: And this article's intention was not to make people angry for the minority that is. Sorry about that. #13
