Proving the Wii U is a system for gamers

Nintendo has gone through quite a lot in the past year and half. The 3DS was not an instant success for the company, and the Wii is practically dead give or take a few titles. E3 is less than two months away, and Nintendo needs to pull out all the stops in order to get the attention of Baltimore consumers.

It plays games. Or at least that's the primary function. That ought to be reason enough.

To address the article itself, I think it's pretty apparent that Nintendo purposely kept the exclusives a secret so as to generate hype at E3. I'm thinking it'll include a new Mario game, whatever Retro is currently working on, and one of the new IPs Nintendo's rumored to be making.

To accuse it of having no games before E3 rolls around is ignorant and stupid.

I don't understand gamers lately. They complain when Nintendo doesn't have "core" third party franchises on their system and now they complain because the only games they know about are "core" third party games.

Nintendo showed off all those third party games at last years E3 to show everyone they have the support of the major third parties. Now everyone says there are no first party games confirmed or that they want to know all the information on Wii-U now.

If Nintendo told us everything now or showed off their first part could they shock and awe everyone at E3. The whole point of E3 is to show off what you have for consumers.

There are plenty games that will most likely be there at launch,

3rd party games below:

Darksiders 2
Ninja Gaiden 3 Razor's Edge
Ghost Recon Online
Assasins Creed 3
Aliens Colonial Marines
Batman Arkham City
Dragon Quest 10
Metro: Last Light
Killer Freaks From Outer Space
Toki Tori 2

And that's just major games we know titles for....Ubisoft and EA still have other games (sports) etc to still show off.

Plus Nintendo themselves already mentioned three games coming from them:

Smash Bros. (not a launch game)
Pikmin 3
Lego City Stories

E3 will show off plenty of new games, so what is the concern. Gamers need to be patient and enjoy the anticipation of a new systems with new game experiences. E3 is just a few weeks away.....Nintendo knows what its doing!

Yeah, I thought the last line about "as of now, gamers should stick with what they already have..." was hilarious. You mean as of now, before any games or specs of the system have been announced? Or how about now, six months before the system is even being released? I'm surprised the author didn't suggest waiting for the next Sony or Microsoft systems, two consoles that we know even staggeringly less about.
Also, the article doesn't really address its own titled topic. Obviously the WiiU is for gamers...
