The writer doesn't know what he's talking about, to be quite honest.
As far as criticism goes, there hasn't been a console released yet that didn't deserve a share of it at launch and the Wii U is no exception. However, a lot of the criticism has been unfair. Judging the abilities of a system by launch titles, for example, is just a bad idea. We really won't know just how good Wii U multi-plats are going to be until we see a few that are developed concurrently with the other platforms. Likewise, we won't know how the Wii U measures up to the other next gen systems until those systems are released.
So, it begins with a rather glaring typo in the very 1st sentence. Then, there are more throughout the whole thing.
Then, the guy starts talking about the many opinions and the criticism surrounding the WiiU, both good and bad. I prepare for a long but potentially informative read. Then he mentions the system getting a lot of ports, and he talks about its reportedly weak GPU.
Then, well, nothing. That was it. Eh?
Rubbish article. My opinion.

Well, I have a wii u and the only criticism I would give o it is its OS. Im not sure what Nintendo was thinking with some of the things they did with the OS. Friend request arent done in the friend channel, to access wii stuff you have to boot up the old wii OS, and then there are the load times. The console has great potential, I just think nintendo should have focused more on ironing out their OS before launch...
Wii U isn't future-proof. But then again neither was the Wii and look how that turned out.
I think as a consumer you should be disappointed with Nintendo's decisions, but as an investor you should be really happy.
