Will Nintendo Attempt to Rebrand its Dying Wii U Console?

The Wii U has been struggling ever since the end of the launch rush period in 2012. The console managed to sell less than a million in the next 9 month...GLOBALLY, even with high quality exclusives being released. All hopes for the consoles future were pinned on its second holiday season performance. The latest Mario game, SM3DW, received universal critical acclaim and was expected to revive the Wii U this November. Unfortunately, it was not meant to be as far as the US is concerned as the console sold a paltry figure as compared to its competitors, even with a much better games lineup. Furthermore, SM3DW did not manage to make even the top 10 list of the games sold in the month. So what does does the future holds for the Wii U now?

a motley fool article nothing to see here.

Yep Mario didn't have historical sales figures for the 8 days that it was out in November. The system is definitely a failure, smh. These articles are becoming more desperate it seems. There are more games coming in the next few months that will further the momentum that has already started with the end of November. The Wii U will sell just fine especially considering there are no new games coming for PS4 or Xbox One. We can only wait and see.

Have to agree.. Enough already!

I guess when you are doing better than before your dying.

Chrischi19883825d ago

Yeah, thats a common law you learn, when you study international business or other business related major.

Articles like that become more and more desperate to downplay the Wii U. Just so if somebody, who is not informed well enough, reads those headlines about Nintendo being doomed all the time, will surely scare away potential customers...

Could care less. I use consoles to play games not for social media.

Social garbage should be abandoned altogether.. the world is stupid since these things got introduced

I would say YouTube was more to blame for this weird unrest we are seeing at the minute. That platform has given license to some of the stupidest people to build advice channels for kids growing through their formative learning years. It's no wonder there are so many incels around.

The world was stupid before that. Social media just let you see it.

It’s for posting content like game captures, not responding to your boo’s pool pictures.

But F twitter anyway
