not terrible not good in between

you could give us more choices or is this some kind of doom thread again to pump up stamina lol

Well I gave you the choice of good and decent. The others are differing levels of they failed hard. If this was a doom, all the choices would have been alot harsher xD

It's like they knew the Wii U won't do well in the long run so they gave it a head start to make it more relevant before the the PS4 and One launches.

Or they knew they will never match the specs the others will have and decided to release it earlier to get the benefit of doubt that their machine is weaker because it came out first.

Or they just wanted a head-start because they thought having that would be good enough and nothing bad will happen out of it >_< />

Sadly not much, Nintendo's biggest mistake was thinking that they had the casual makert on lock and simply adding "U" to the the "Wii" name would ensure the casual maket while appealing to those outside the "casual market" realm

While the Wii U might be "simpler" to use it's not "easier" to use; let me explain- with the wii-mote all you basically had to do was wave your wii-mote and nunchuck with the ocassional pressing of A, now with the tablet/buttons it does come off as a sophisticated device which both a positive and negative; I like the Idea of playing my games while watching tv or interactive touchscreen, but to the casual of the casual it might seem like an unwanted hassle to play games compared to what thw nintendo wii was.

They have a 3.5million lead with a less powerful console and no third party support

Bet reminder: I bet with Tboned51 that Splatoon won't reach the 1 million shipped mark by the end of 2015. I win if he loses and I lose if I lost.

The casual gamers just don't want it, the casual non gamers don't want it after being burned with the Wii, and the gamers don't want it right now because there's nothing they're interested in you can't already get on another console.

Nintendo needs Super Smash Bros Q1 2014 and X sometime later in 2014. I'm sure people will buy a Wii U just for those games. Whichever one comes out first I'm buying a Wii U for. I'll pick the next one up later..

I am yet to see a Wii U or even a Wii U box with my own eyes and I go to game stores quite often. That's just how bad Nintendo is doing.

Wii U is a GCN 2 - I called it months before the release!

My Vita to-buy list: The Walking Dead, Persona 4 Golden, Need for Speed: Most Wanted, TearAway, Ys: Memories of Celceta, Muramasa: The Demon Blade, History: Legends of War, FIFA 13, Final Fantasy HD X, X-2, Worms Revolution Extreme, The Amazing Spiderman, Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate - too many no-gaemz :/

My consoles: PS2 Slim, PS3 Slim 320 GB, PSV 32 GB, Wii, DSi.

The Wii U launch was solid. However, I will always believe that their strategy should have been to pile on software early in order to build a significant installed base. Instead, it was almost like they had abandoned the Wii for nothing. Now they have to face the PS4 and XO without even a trace of momentum.

casuals burned how ? they knew what they are buying and enjoyed wii sports(resort),wii fit, mario etc...at a super price point. and most people(casuals) buy it for someone as a gift.

The ball was already on the ground when they launched it so I voted for terrible. Worse than MS did with 360. Heck, it's way worse because at least MS could get some good game support going and they worked on stealing PS3 exclusives. Plus, WiiU weekly sales this year are way lower than 360's were in 2006 if memory serves.
