I just wanted to add that the Wii U is a great internet browser. You can watch classic Doctor Who on it all day.

It's raining doom threads about WiiU.



This is not a doom thread sir.

Honestly maybe it's just for the best especially with Nintendo platforms to stay away for the first six months if you need a lot of content to play.

Because Nintendo doesn't have the same type of third party support and their internal resources are constantly split between portable and home console, it's always going to take about 7-8 months for their platform to really rev up.

You buy a Wii U in June and you're probably looking at NSMBU, Nintendo Land, Zombi U, Pikmin 3, Aliens: CM, Lego City, Rayman, and maybe Wonderful 101 already available.

I think Nintendo was banking on getting more 3rd party support this time around, like stuff such as GTAV and BioShock Infinite and MGS Rising to help them through the post-launch period, but no dice it looks like. I think they probably also overestimated the appeal of things like Black Ops 2 and Assassin's Creed 3 on their platforms, no one really seems to care that Nintendo is finally getting comparable versions of a few HD franchises. I get the feeling Nintendo thought just having those franchises + Mario would be a can't miss combination. 



WiiU price is fine, I mean Sony is releasing a $300 white PS3 bundle, and that's a last gen system.

More games are what is needed. So far, only 2 games interest me for 2013, and I'm not going to buy a new console for 2 games. I need about a half dozen released, and another half dozen releasing soon before I buy one.

Are those two games Bayonetta and Pikmin 3?

Nintendo needs to have a giant list like Sony and Microsoft gave IGN in that chart that Arghcollege posted. They had 50 or more games and the Wii U had 3-5 I think. It has got to change. Everyone always says they are happy with the games and when they release, but it is not like that at all. When you are behind the other guys by 45 games you have to know there is a problem.

Yup

To be honest, I think Nintendo does have a handful of major titles for this fall. They just want to keep it secret so Sony and MS don't make a compeditor (e.g. LBP or Banjo) game as a launch title. Nintendo wants to make it look like their console has all the software, and the compeditor has none. This is why 3DS had 2 major titles release before the PSV even came out, and has a huge early life portfolio. Wii did the same with SM Galaxy, Smash Bros, Metroid Prime, and Mario Kart all releasing just after the 360/PS3 released.

I seriously doubt that Nintendo will let MS and Sony have a "good" debut with their consoles. Retro Studios is going to make something ridiculous, and there will be some sort of AAA title for WiiU this fall, if not many.

I wouldn't be surprised if Nintendo is already working on getting a solid library of games from both first and third parties combined. The WiiU needs to keep its momentum going and they know it. And yes it's true; the 3DS DID have a rocky start. All Nintendo needs to do is to keep the games coming. This week's low sales (not just from WiiU, mind you, but EVERYONE) were quite shocking. But does that mean the WiiU is doomed? No. But it does mean that Nintendo has their work cut out for them. Hopefully they are working on the problem right now.

These things have to be planned out a year or more in advance, "working on the problem" doesn't mean a whole lot, because games aren't made overnight. 

Even if they decided right now "holy crap! we don't have enough games", likely those games would be 18-24 months out at best. 

The Wii U is going to have a lot of weeks like this past one coming on up.

Maybe for the moment, but not in the long term.  I'd rather give the benefit of the doubt than be skeptical right now.



There is no doubt that the WiiU has its work cut out for it. They need to be heavily active in getting games over. I would think that the eshop would be the easiest placed to start for now. Get a bunch of old PC games. 2000-2011 games. Not many would have played them and it would be a good start. Game pad. You have millions of apps that could be brought over. Do it!
