Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Counter To All The Negative Wii U Threads In 1 Place

oh man disappointed in the thread.

I thought it be like a big digital number counting the negative threads with links below the counter to each one lol.

Well considering how cluttered this thread got, I guess I'll summarize with two notes:

1) I wouldn't say the GC had terrible 1st party support, but I think we can tell that Nintendo was banking on Rare to fill in the blanks a little too hard during the development of their own projects, as they did with the N64.

2) Y'know, personally, I'm pissed that Microsoft cut and ran with the original Xbox prematurely, but hey, I'm not almost 80 million Xbox 360's sold either.



KingdomHeartsFan said:1. Nintendo to discontinue the Wii U:  This is never gonna happen and anyone that things it will obviously was not around when Sega left the hardware bussiness.  It makes no sense for Nintendo to drop the Wii u because they'd lose all trust from the consumer and no one would buy their next system also Nintendo has way more than enough money to whether the storm of one bad console, especially considering they have another console, the 3DS, selling amazing.  Also ITS ONLY BEEN 1 YEAR and people are already saying they are gonna drop support, oh ya just ignore the Wii U's 2014 lineup destroys the PS4's and X1's.

Someone's been watching ReviewTechUSA.

This is a really great point. Say they dropped support now with no warning or compensation you're going to lose at most 4 million consumers(probably much less, people like myself will continue to support Nintendo and others will be satisfied with the value already gotten out of the system.)

If you continue to support the Wii U you're losing the 96 million people who bought a Wii and millions of other potention customers who don't consider the Wii U a worthwhile system. On top of that you're going years with minimal major third party business relationships and the longer it goes on the more irrecoverable it becomes.

I don't know man. These forums are pretty..dead. Something has to happen to keep people posting. I mean how many active users are there?


lol... I have not been here much lately, but theforums have always been pretty dead except really close to the holidays and E3.

The only way they could drop the wiiu if they moved to PC because it would be irrelevant the issue.

I agree with all your points! I'm glad to see that there is a thread sticking up for the Wii U :D



   

Someone needs to make a website explaining how the gaming industry works along with its history and trends so people can stop making stupid, uninformed, unintelligent remarks on it. And maybe include some grammar lessons too. And some lessons in respect, because why not?

Nintendo becoming 3rd party or discontinuing the Wii U would be catastrophic. Any such ideas are the result of things like people getting caught up in doom posts, overexaggeration, not understanding how these things works, or not actually being familiar with the subject at hand. (Or a combination, I guess.)

Seriously though, take it for what it is. Nintendo's far from doomed. It's got the cheapest system out there ($300 and comes with 1 game; some deals make it so you can get even more extra stuff, like another free game, wiimote, whatever, e.g. I recall a bundle with 2 games for only $20 more than the average price), the best current line-up of a "next-gen" (which we should be calling current-gen) system -- multi-plats are bleh, it has some solid exclusives, and a ton of indie support -- and an established line-up for 2014. I say this not to hardcore fans of other systems (for the record I'm also a Sony fan), I say this to Nintendo fans--don't give in to the negativity, keep supporting Nintendo, let the Xbone and PS4 have their moments, they DID just launch 1-2 weeks ago, the only major thing stopping people from desiring a Wii U is the media/publicity, it's highly a matter of psychology. There's seemingly a lot of demand for those systems and that draws people in, people want in on the bandwagon, my brother literally just bought an Xbox One and PS4 and he's not even really a gamer and he's just going to sell the PS4 to try to make a profit, he only really got it because of the general hype over a hard-to-find "next-gen" system.

Point to all this isn't that Wii U is best system, it's that people are overreacting and are addicted to console drama of any kind. And well, I normally just sit by and let things go because there's not much I can do and it really is just a matter of time (nothing will shut people up about "Wii U doomed" until it sells consistently well), but I caved in and decided to rant a bit if only to make myself feel better--the negativity DOES blow, I'm human and it got to me. I feel better now though, I'll be back to see how people are reacting in 1-2 months as I expect a permanent overall increase in Wii U sales, such that the system will, if nothing else, become "relevant", which should be enough to destroy most doomed theories, or so I hope. Not expecting Wii U to outsell the PS4 or Xbox One as they launch, but I do expect the Wii U to have a consistent sales presence, not just 5k or even 20k sold a week.

...that was quite a rant, I probably didn't even make sense, but whatever, it is what it is. Time to go play my Vita

Granted, I don't think it's a necessary step as long as Nintendo has the 3DS to fall back on, however, on the other hand, I'm worried that Wii U is becoming the tipping point in making 3rd party relations irrecoverable. But that's exactly why Sega shouldn't be the only one being analogized in this situation. They didn't have the handheld parachute, in fact, they were an absolute clusterfuck of hardware over a period of 6 years.
