I'm not even sure why people want Wii U to last through 2017 when the final year of the last Gamecube and Wii were so terrible.

What good is another year when it would be even more barren than this one?

So instead of asking nintendo to give you guys more games to play in the last two years of their consoles' life, many of you want the console life to end a year sooner. That makes a lot of sense.

Of course I'd rather they supported the console I own for a further 2 years, but I have accepted the reality that this isn't going to happen.

 

Nintendo can only do that because you guys tolerate it. I suggest that you should play some pc games to make up for whatever nintendo lacks. I know that you're not interested in the exclusives of playstation or xbox.

I'm not tolerating it; I've decided I won't be buying an NX after how they've handled Wii U.

I'll say NX even if you lose sleep over it, prove to me it isn't a Wii U successor until then you'll have to swallow it, as for the port the money spent making a port is small chips compared to what they can make helping NX take off.

Calling the nx a wii u successor is meaningless when the thing hasn't been announced. Nintendo would get 0 dollars from porting Zelda U to the wii u successor, because no extra person will buy the game.



 

Except they'd get money from buyers of the gamr on the platform and in the long run the could be more potential buyers of the game then on the Wii U, it happened easily with TP.

That's wise. Nintendo will be more inclined to change their ways if they were not getting the fans' $$$.

Just gotta put pressure on them to do change that.

And how exactly do u propose that happen?





When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.

"They'll be fine"

Why are they making theme parks, movies or mobile games? Ah yeah, because they want to be "finer" "more fine" "better", not because they needed.

Why is Nintendo unifying the architecture for handheld and console? It must be because costs are now high and they need to cut costs to make little profits. Ah no, they are making just because "it's Nintendo".

Those loses? No problem. Nintendo has infinite money. And why would they want money? Everything they do is because Nintendo love us as a father.

I think Nintendo could have shown NX at E3 last year if they really wanted to, just a formal announcement, but Wii U and even 3DS are selling poorly, especially in the West, that they can't operate the way they used to.

It would like kicking an 80-year-old man in the gut, those systems are not strong enough to handle the NX being shown without what's left of their sales cratering.

Seriously, like November + December 2015 in North America is probably Nintendo's worst holiday sales since like ... 1995 when the SNES was aging and right in that pocket before Pokemon revitalized the Game Boy brand.

 

Actually , Wii U had it's second best holiday ever in 2015 according to NPD - up from 2014.
