Since some people have been complaining- I will define some boundaries. When I am talking about worst of all time I mean within the big four companies( Sony, Microsoft, Sega and Nintendo.) So yeah if your little bro made a console back in the 70's in Wiscosin IT DOESNT' COUNT. I don't care how bad you think it was compared to the Wii U. Neither does it count if some obscure company decided to make money and failed with their console. We are talking about the big four companies here. About the consoles that people think that most about when they think about console wars.
I am not trying to start a flame war but I am trying to be realistic and objective.
In terms of hardware the Wii U gamepad has no purpose. People don't understand the concept. In comparison with the Wii-at least the Wii controller made sense, the Wii masterfully executed its concept on Wii sports. The Wii U? Not so much.
You can complain all you want about the gamecube. Yet it still had third party support like Resident evil 4,Beyond Good and Evil and Soul Calibur II. The Wii U doesn't. What's worst the Gamecube had strong first party support Mario Sunshine, Metroid Prime and Windwaker. The Wii U doesn't even have a Prime game nor a strong Mario game. We don't even know if Zelda will even come up for Wii U or be skipped all together. Remember, Nintendo can change their minds.
It's an incredibly sad day when Nintendo fans are excited because Nintendo is localizing Mother into Earthbound Origins. Are you guys serious? A 26 year old game its the best nintendo can give us.
Please be respectful in this thread and I would call upon anyone to systematically challenge my points.
