My point remains valid, the Wii U failed as a home console in part because it was released in 2012 with out dated hardware. At 300-350 dollars  no one in their right mind was going to support the system knowing that the PS4 and Xbox One were around the corner. It is a valid point when even Metro's developer stated they wouldnt make ports for it because the CPU was terrible.  

Power isn't the only reason the Wii U failed but it is one of the reasons it did. That is one of my points. It proved true.

How about at $200-$250, more Wiimote controls, and no gamepad? Would it still have failed due to lack of power? 

That would make it Wii HD, the very thing Pachter was saying Nintendo should release around 2010 or so (sort of foreseeing the mid-cycle consoles that came later in 8th gen).
