The Wii U's Future

Let's be up front about things here; the Wii U is not doing well. Sales are low, prices are remaining too high for some, and we're still not getting the system shifting software it needs. People are sceptical and there are a whole bunch of reasons why. The way Nintendo Feed sees it, Nintendo have limited options in order to deal with this unexpected incident.

Wii U is in a tough spot right now but so were many other consoles..I'm sure Nintendo is working hard with first and 3rd party developers to improve the amount of quality software released.

Nintendo isn't dead for sure... as a handheld maker they rule the roost. As for the WiiU, I think if they can some good momentum from 1st party games that actually gets consoles sold they could get some 3rd party support back. Ultimately the Key for Nintendo's success on the console front is going to be winning back 3rd party dev confidence.

Whilst the Wii U appears in dire straits, if Nintendo get their act together, it could be a huge success. Hypothetically speaking, imagine if just some of these games came out:

* F Zero
* Lylat Wars
* Metroid Prime
* A new Super Mario Bros

Yeah they need to invest in a few more IP's, but those titles above would secure my purchase immediately (assuming they were good).

I don't know about dead but it surely is in huge trouble. 160k world wide is near nothing.

Pikmin 3 was just the start. When you see reviews across the board sitting at about 9/10, then that shows how good these games are..

Wonderful 101 will be the next one to turn some heads.. the fall is looking pretty good for Nintendo with several big 1st party titles releasing along with some solid 3rd party support in Sonic, Batman, AC4, Watch Dogs, Rayman, plus others.

It was a rocky start, but look at the 3DS then and now.

Wii U had no future. Nintendo is only best in handheld

As long as Nintendo has a brand, they will be secure. I just picked up a Wii U, and am basking in the glorious gamepad.
