Wii U comercials are harder to find than new copies of Xenoblade, and it begs the question of why? Speculation abound, does Nintendo not see it as cost effective? Do they feel the system is dead in the water, and the cost of advertising would be negligible at best. Is it a case of arrogance in that they feel the brand carries itself? If I had a product that was struggling I would make it to where you couldn't watch tv without seeing a couple of advertisements for it. Whether it actually gave it much of a boost or not at this point it definitely wouldn't hurt it. What do y'all think?
They are too busy with the Vita you know. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/thread.php?id=179200&page=1

DirtyP2002 criticizing Sony:
The PS4 is your console if you are into Indies and Free2Play games. AAA is not their strength.
Nintendo advertising depends on how much money they pay this company:
In 2006 Nintendo payed them 200 million USD and said: "Here's our new product. Market it for us".

They surely know by now that it's not the latter, so I'd have to say the former seems more likely. There hasn't really been any software that would push consoles, so what's the point? They'll probably just muddle along this way until Smash and Mario Kart come out. I'd expect a big advertising push then.
