Question: Why do people think WiiU is a hardcore oriented machine? it basically follows the Wii formula,but thanks to smartphones/tablets,without the same success.That's why WiiU is selling bad!
in fact, Wii also had lots of hardcore games(Zelda, metroid, no more héroes, mad world, xenoblade, last story, Pandoras tower, etc). But the ones that sold well are the casuals. Thats why Wii was known was a casual machine. But it is also hardcore if you choose the games properly.
