Nintendo: We have failed to establish Wii U as a “worthy” Wii successor

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Nintendo: We have failed to establish Wii U as a “worthy” Wii successor

The tough thing about trying to turn around a bad console launch is it's very hard if people simply don't want the system.

You can announce or greenlight more games, but given the nature of game development, they will be at least 18 months away from helping you even if you start immediately.

Yeah but i believe if there is more advertising more people will buy, at least christmas season



The Wii U by design has aboslutely nothing to do with the Wii. Wii successor? Really? LOL Nintendo just needs to admit they went after the tablet market because of the tablet boom.



Well, I'm not surprise, judging by how the sales were going and dry ads...



 And proud member of the Mega Mario Movement!

there's time for a Wii U without the gamepad for $199, it should perform better.

Nice to see that donkey Kong is no longer delayed and will once again be released in december.



My grammar errors are justified by the fact that I am a brazilian living in Brazil. I am also very stupid.

How can they even say this? It has not been a year yet even.

I think things are turning around quite fast for the Wii U. It was just a really slow start based on some poor decisions.

The games are coming fast now and there is a lot of quality out there and deals.

It aboslutely has to do with Wii because it is a successor to it like PlayStation 2 was to PlayStation and like it was PlayStation 3 to PlayStation 2...

It can play Wii games, it has backward compatibility and it could play Gamecube games if Nintendo wanted to implement that also it supports all Wii controlers and accessories, also how Nintendo went to tablet market when Wii U is not a tablet because it is a console with a controler that has its own screen that acts as secondary screen like on Nintendo DS/3DS while the game is on TV also that idea was in mind for original Wii yet NIntendo decided to ditch it because it was too expensive for the time.

They did not went after tablet market at all even when that tablet boom was tempting yet they already had DS and 3DS by the time it really exploded in 2011.

You need to admit that you have bias against their console because it is either you don't like Nintendo and/or you don't like Wii U's concept that you think it is a gimmick yet I and everyone else could call PS4 + Vita dual screen and off tv a gimmick because we have a valid reason since it is not in consoles design from the start like the Wii U.

Sony and Microsoft fans called Wii nunchuk a gimmick that was not and yet it also was really close to mouse and keyboard precision compared to regular controllers. Microsoft did kinect that was at least original while Sony made a complete rip off... Sony innovates no more... :/

I wonder if they'll give up this need to revolutionalize next gen and just make a regular console because they are tramatized by the Wii U, considering it doesn't really pick up speed.  

Yeah, why not try the Gamecube strategy again?

That would only perpetuate the death spiral.

I love how people always use the GameCube as an excuse as to why Nintendo never makes a normal console and doesn't just let their games be the revolutionary thing that ppl should be going out to buy the console for.  If you go back and actually look at Nintendo's first party support on the GameCube it was sub par compared to their other consoles, sure you have your tradional ssb, Mario kart and 3D Mario game then you see the crappy star fox games, the disappointing dk games and wario games, multiple Mario sports games, Mario dance and Mario party game after Mario party game basically ruining the series.  So I guess for the Wii u games will sell the system but for the GameCube the fact that it sold poorly had nothing to do with Nintendo releasing terrible games...
