Is the Wii U gaining respect as the next gen progresses ?

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Is the Wii U gaining respect as the next gen progresses ?

Ok so the Wii U has pretty much been the laughing stock since the beginning of this next generation.  Has the tide finally turned and are people starting to realize that the Wii U can roll with the big boys (sony/ms).  Their first party games have been excellent and seem to have the best games at this very moment in time.  Will it be a Playstation/Nintendo generation with MS taking a backseat?

No, what makes you think its still not laughing stock? did sales skyrocket have true next gen looking games been announced for it ? what.

Look how bad its doing. It has had some of it big franchise drop already and costs half the X1, yet its still selling less. That's brutal.

Nothing at this time is showing a potential PS/U gen with MS in the back seat.

Why are we still calling it the next generation? We are now completely in the eighth generation, so it should be called "this generation."

Only among those who own it.



What makes you think this is the case? It's still the worst selling console this generation so far and gets beat by the Vita every other week, so it might end up being the worst-selling system of the generation too. Even Tropical Freeze's release barely had an effect on console sales and now there aren't any other major releases for over a month.

Even if Nintendo does somehow manage to turn the Wii U's situation around eventually and it manages to reach N64-like sales, there's no reason to think thing are getting better right now



Thread's a bit ambiguous. Respect in terms of what? Having high quality software? Probably, although it still has a long way to go (and it'd also help if releases weren't slowing back to down a crawl again).

In terms of sales? Definitely not. The system is still selling awfully, and I'm not sure that's something that can be blamed on a simple lack of software. The issue may be it took Nintendo too long to get its quality titles out, and the Wii U is now far less enticing with newer consoles out.

We're all in denial!



Respect and wii u should never be in the same sentence
