This is unlike Nintendo though, normally they make barely any systems for launch. The original Wii they only made like 5 million for the WHOLE of Europe!! WTF? And the demand for that thing was crazy stupid. The adverts were everywhere! Remember the two Japanese guys knocking on the door of a family and showing them how the Wii worked... it was great advertising. Heck even the Gamecube had adverts at launch the giant glass cube in the shopping mall if I remember correctly.

They need to seriously start pushing this thing otherwise its going to be a complete fail, they do not need another 3DS launch and have to cut the price four months down the line. I reckon with a push in advertising they could shift a lot more units and get people knowing about the Wii U then when PS4/720 are released drop the price by 50 and start taking a loss on the system making it more appealing to the struggling masses. They just gotta get the games out within the next two years before the other systems get launched.

I wouldnt worry about wii u for now, there doing just fine, in japan wii u dominates the sales charts beating PS3,X360,3DS,Vita.

Wii U 308,142 (n/a)
3DS 211,499 (167,408)
PS3 36,994 (29,809)
PSP 19,637 (15,941)
Vita 11,039 (11,066)
Wii 6,714 (5,550)
Xbox 360 1,216 (1,217)
PS2 904 (812)
DSi 424 (457)

Looking real good so far.

http://www.zeldainformer.com/news/co...g-wii-u-launch\

and heres the world wide chart as of december 6



This week it sold 610,384 beating PS3 but only second to 360 no biggie and 3DS Holds the most sales leaving the Vita to dust.

What are de advantages and disadvantages for transferring my Wii data to my WiiU. Obviously it would be the lack of Gamecube controller support.
I'm having a fair share of VC titles on my Wii (NES/SNES/N64) and i'm still not sure whether to transfer or not. Then again, my Wii is showing its age.

Here are some black Ops 2 campaign screenshots someone ask for it a while ago. Man this game is Sexii













I seen the ps3 and 360 version in personal I would say Wii U definetly has the edge in Visual.

Yah it will take developers a year or two to realy get use to the new hardware platform. First gen games always look like crap. Granted the WiiU while it has a great GPU, the CPU isn't much of an upgrade. So multiplatform titles probably won't make very good use of the system's hardware.

Hope the WiiU works better than the Wii.... My son got a Wii for Christmas and it's already getting ready to go back to the store because it doesn't work. Worked for all of 30minutes...now all I get is the BS "channel" screen and can't do anything from there....

Finally, now other peeps can post in this thread as well.
But i'm shocked. Are you telling us you are selling your Wii U?

The system has just been released. It needs a couple of months to shine, just like the Wii in the beginning. Became tired of Wii Sports real quick.

I dont get how he was soo excited over the graphics in the first place.. if his PC really has Quad SLI, that would completely blow anything a console can do out of the water.

wow you run those 4 on that single psu. I have that motherboard and only 1 single 7970 with a 1200w coolermaster silentprogold and am now considering getting 3x3gb 580s Not very expensive and probably still better than 2 way crossfire 7970. I don't game for more than 2-3 hours a day in the week so my power bills wouldn't be too bad with most being desktop work.

Yeah, same here. The guy had to defend EVERY aspect of the console and he was a mass poster in this thread. Defending how good the gfx looked (tbh, i'm quite pleased with the console myself) and suddenly "bla bla bla these gfx sucks and going to ebay" ROFL!!!

He hasn't posted since so i guess he has sold it.

I will be waiting for this IP before buying, for me consoles are all about their exclusives, multiplatform games get played on the PC

You really have no idea how much money Nintendo actually have do you?

They OWN the handheld console market. Yea sure its a shrinking market due to smartphones/tablets but they still sell games and hardware in the millions making a profit on every sale.

They still sell Wii consoles in the hundred-thousands each month and the profits on those systems must be nearing 80-90% as they cost next to nothing to build.

Also, its not costing Nintendo any money at all to run third-party online game severs like Madden that cost of running is down to EA.

Although I don't think the Wii U flopping will tank Nintendo in any way unless they sold no systems at all. I do think that this very well could end up being Nintendo's last home console. Maybe they have one more in five years or so. But I really think that either Microsoft or Sony might be putting their hands in their pockets and buying out Nintendo, and I think that will be Microsoft in the next ten years. If not a buyout (which would cost billions) maybe an exclusive license deal also worth hundreds of millions.

I seriously want to get a Wii-U the console looks pretty neat and fun and I love Nintendo. But its just too expensive at the moment, also the games in my area are insanely over priced. 49.99 for COD, Mario, etc. That is just ridiculous!
