Nintendo showed off the Wii U. That's not leadership and innovation, that's idiocy.

Let's go back to 2005-2006.  The quote was then:

Nintendo showed off the Wii. That's not leadership and innovation, that's idiocy.

 

Back then, the Wii was forecast to be a failure, mocked, called a gimmick and left for dead.  Now it is the Wii U that is getting that.

 

Yeah... no.

Things are very different. The Wii caused excitement and led to five hours long waiting lines to try out the system while the PS3 was shunned. The Wii U is met with a "meh" reaction all around.

So based off people's reaction on the show Wii U is gonna fail?

On their pure show i would say yes.

Hardware means jack squat if your content is sub par. Look at their like up: 5 mario games, 2 "core" ports, NintendoLand. Pikmin 3 and Scribblenauts being the most appealing of games, but already have an installed base. ZombiU has potential to be big but we'll see. Now that's just what I saw in the conference, there maybe more games on floor i'm not aware about. I'll give you this, Nintendo has balls of steel to put a U at the end of new mario game and called it new. I'd give them props for the multiverse integration but demon/dark souls already did it.

Yeh, they're one step ahead of the HD Twins and they're ready to bank of our current novelty of tablets. Then again, Microsoft has SmartGlass and Sony was cross play and junk with Vita, which I am fully aware it is not the same as the Wii U tablet but it's in the same ball park.

I see what Nintendo is doing and it's certainly commendable but innovation doesn't always work. Look at CoD. Up until Black Ops II, it has been the same shit over and over and has broken record after record. Innovation doesn't guarantee winning, it guarantees gullible parents build their kids an expensive console with a mediocre line-up.

What I dislike most about Nintendo is they always play it safe. Mario, Zelda, Mario, Metroid, Mario, Mario, Star Fox, Mario. Yes, maybe its what the gamers want but I personally can't stand that state of redundancy. I want to take this time and personally thank all of the good people here in VGChartz who helped in Operation Rainfall which to my knowledge, was the main reason Xenoblade and The Last Story made it to NA. I am having the time of my gaming life with Xenoblade and quite possibly the best games on the Wii right now.

To wrap up, they maybe ahead of the game in "innovation" and showing this so called "leadership" but their appearance in E3 in was underwhelming and it made the Wii U look shady. There was no reason for the content of their "revolutionary console" to be a bunch of mario games, ports and minigames.

Sony brought Blu Ray to game consoles, how is that not innovation?

Because its a completely natural step forward?

And yet no one else did it.

True, nearly everything wrong. 2009 was their saving grace.

And the Wii is nothing more than a stupid gimmick.  And so it goes on.  Nintendo releases info on a new console and people bash it.  Maybe they can go back to Gamecube days, and release more lunchbox type systems that don't really do anything new or different, just to placate people on forums who rant.

You shouldn't compare the Wii U to the Wii. It isn't the next Wii. It's the Gamecube on stilts. And by stilts, I mean an iPad that you can't take out of the house.

Well, this can only be a good thing. I'm fed up of people on the train tilting their iPads towards me, like I'm interested in whatever shit they're doing as I mentally wank over my sub £100 android phone.

If we're doing that, I get to call Mario All-Stars or Zelda: Collector's Edition* the BESTEST GAMES EVER.

Make that a Kororinpa Duopoly and you're talkin GAMEOCALYPSE.
