Forums - Nintendo Discussion - WiiU is doing horrible in America, we need to talk about it

After the December NPD, what do you think of it? Whats next for WiiU? It failed to outsell PS3 at launch, that is WITH a Mario game. We all know the horrible PS3 launch, it even led to people writing songs about its horrible launch. Which Mario game can bring salvation? What will WiiUs killer app be?

I'd like to hear from American vgc members if there is any hype or WiiU talk going.

I want to discuss what Nintendo can do, please post your suggestions what you would do or would have done as Nintendo's CEO.

And last, what is the next big game for WiiU in the West?

Nintendo and PC gamer

They better have some amazing games they aren't talking about for 1st half 2013.

Like *amazing*.

Otherwise this is going to be the 3DS post launch all over again.

"It failed to outsell PS3 at launch"

Wrong. Dec 06 PS3 > Dec 12 Wii U, but Wii U launch > PS3 launch.

PS3 = legs!



Well I imagine Mario Galaxy 3 is the trump card.

Either way Nintendo have the option of cutting the price and undercutting the inevitable Sony and Microsoft next gen consoles.

I think its difficult to say either, because the Wii is still doing okay. If they took the Wii off the market the Wii U would take a lot of those sales. They are competing with their own console as well, which was very popular. So they are still making money on that front.

I think the Wii U will phase out the Wii slowly; thus the sales will pick up as more and more games start trickling in. It also depends on the PS4 and the 720. If those consoles are weak competitors the Wii U will do well. At the moment, I think we're all on edge waiting to see what Microsoft and Sony are planning.

You doing it all wrong: WiiU is a MAJOR flop in America, we need to talk.
That's the correct code for joke-threads.

predict! / Can 3DS outsell PSP? / Does Vita have better 3rd-party support in 2014 than 3DS?

Bet with platformmaster918 and ethomaz about PS3 overtaking Wii in total sales.

Bet with Lawlight: How many PS3 will Sony ship over 2013. He wins if that are more than 11 million, I win if it are less.
