The Wii U IS NOT Doomed.

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - The Wii U IS NOT Doomed.

im a little big more pessimistic.
The games will be very good, amazing!
But it wont sell that much. till march probably 8 mil wii Us would be sold.
If mario kart sell a third of wii Us, it would be a big flop. I expect at least 4 or 5 mil, the half. and optimistically can move 2 mil wii Us
And mario kart will be the best selling game.
Smash bros, i doubt it can reach 5 mil next year.
For me xenoblade was the FFVII of 7th generation, and it sold poorly. i dont expect X to sell more than 2 mil.
bayonetta, yoshi, fire emblem spin off, all below 1 mil, 500k if lucky.
DK maybe reach 3 mil.

Of course this will be the best exclusive lineup, but the console is just not apealing for the nowadays big public, with ps360, ps4/one in the market, and also 3DS going very well feeding the ninteendo nececity of gamers.
Like ps2 owners that lost the amazing exclusives of GC.

Wii U owners will love 2014, Nintendo wont abandon wii U until 2017.
But it wont sell.

Things will def get better for WiiU in the future :) I dont know if it will push 50m units or anything but i think it will do ok.

Im just disappointed that my prediction is looking so off for 2013 -_- lol

Uh..fuck. I misread XD.

On the topic of the bolded, yes. Not into oblivion of course, but let the rest of the software come out and let third parties know far ahead of time so they don't develop anymore games. If the games bomb, they should support it until the end of 2015 or until the last of the software rolls out.

Yes, I agree with you in the fact that it has a low chance of occuring... (your 1% or 2%), I don't know what my number would be but it would be pretty low.

I maybe didn't need to bring up hypothetical. Sorry ^_^



I'm glad OP mentioned Yarn Yoshi...
Everyone, even Nintendo, seems to have forgotten about that game...



Have a nice day...

With no disrespect to anyone anticipating the game, if it means better resources for Yoshi's New Island, then Yarn Yoshi can go havaseat.

The way I see it, I chose the GBA over the GC, didn't have much to do with the PS2, and I think the same is essentially happening with the 3DS in contrast to the Wii U, I guess it all comes down to the quantity of identifiable core exclusives, it just happens to be the handhelds that has more.



Wii U is too hard to predict at the moment. That's the only thing I can say for certain ;)

I agree with this.  Wii U's success could also ride on the successes of the PS4 and XB1.



You can't really discontinue a console unless you have already released a successor or don't plan to make another one.

So of course they won't discontinue it.

I don't however think that's what people mean when they say they think it's doomed.

What they mean is, they think it will stay at sub gamecube levels.



Nintendo is doing a 3D-style push in 2014 for the Wii U. If that really fails, then in 2015 the support wil likely be scaled down.



In the wilderness we go alone with our new knowledge and strength.
