A wise man once said:
"Nintendo fans: Always depressed for no good reason. Sony fans: Always excited for no good reason."
Words of wisdom indeed. The best example that comes to mind for the purpose of this topic are the Wii U and Vita as a whole. While Nintendo fans are critical of the system itself as well as Nintendo, (most) Sony fans apparently couldn't be happier.
Why did Nintendo fans want to buy Wii Us? Primarily to play great Nintendo games, and perhaps whatever good third party games might hit the system. What happened? A lengthy Nintendo software drought. The reaction? Anger and disappointment, so people didn't hesitate to get their pitchforks ready and grill Nintendo for their pathetic execution.
Why did Sony fans want to buy Vitas? Powerful hardware, great third party support, first party games. What happened? Third party support is questionable and nowadays mostly comes from indie developers who don't push the hardware which in turn lets Vita's power go to waste; Sony's first party studios are focused on other systems. The reaction? Pretty much everything is right in the world and Sony is doing a good job with the Vita.
Now that's not to say that every single Nintendo and Sony fan reacted in the described manner, but the majority did. So I'll ask: Where's the positivity among Nintendo fans? Why can't we praise downloadable games as the second coming? Why can't we be happy about the little things we get instead of endlessly complaining about what we don't get? The Wii U already has so many good games to play, but for some reason we are entitled pricks who demand new exclusive content all the damn time.
Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.
