"There’s no question that Nintendo succeeds in satisfying its hardcore user base. Initial Wii U sales are proof of this simple phenomenon; the Wii U sold outstanding for its first several weeks. Unfortunately, it has failed to appeal the wider gaming audience or the mass market in general. The fact that games have such a strong attach rate on the Wii U is just proof that the gamers that own it are some of the most active in the gaming community, but it also proves that the install base is too small. If Nintendo ever wants the Wii U to be a bigger-selling console than it is or if it ever wants it to break out of the niche market, it needs to appeal to the mass market and the general consumer" -- Nintendo Enthusiast.
