Wii U could have been completely different.
1. 1 TF of processing power.
2. No gamepad only pro controller.
3. Splatoon as launch title. And many must have games since Nintendos Wii support became barren after 2010.
4. Actual focus on third parties as they said. Actively working with them.
5. Decent price tag.
The reason we keep getting "why Wii U didnt do well" threads because many havent accepted it. Live the truth. Time to enjoy the system.
I do love love love the gamepad though! But having said that, I know it is holding it back.
