Things consumers might do when the Wii U comes out?

For example, I read one story when the Wii came out, a parent was asking online how to put the credit card into the Wii to put money to buy Wiiware games for her children. She misunderstood what the people told her and what she did was literally push her credit card into the Wii console... and broke it.


LOL i've read similar thing but they put the SD card into the wii disc slot instead XD.


The great unwashed... how they amuse me.

It's bad enough that people have questions like:
-Does the PS3 have any Mario titles.
-I have a bunch of old Nintendo tapes in the attic. Will this run them?
-I just spent $100 on a DS last week, and there's a DS3? Can the games for that run in the DS I just bought.
-The Wii, PS3 and 360 all use discs, so why can't they all play the same games?
-It's rated M, but is there nudity in it? That's the only thing my 8 year old isn't allowed to have. (I love this one. Next time you're in a store and this situation happens, swear in front of the kid and watch the reaction of the parent)

People are going to confuse the Wii and the Wii U regardless.

Those consumers have an IQ less than 60.

Even Forrest Gump would know the difference between a Wii, and a Wii U.

Be thankful you do not work in an electronics department at a store that sells video games. If you do, please ask if someone goes for the Wii U games/accessories if they own the Wii U. If they get confused, ask them how long they have had their system.

I have had to help a lot of people with this in the 3DS section of games as a customer because they get excited playing the 3DS, and I tell them, it is completely different. The Wii U will be the same.

I think people will be confused that the Wii U is a brand new console because Nintendo spent nearly all of its advertising and marketing on the controller, instead of the console itself. I get it, this is this console's "thing" that differentiates it from any other console on the market, but how are people supposed to know it's a new console if the controller is in the forefront while the unit is shoved behind it on the box?

A friend of mine gave me a "broken" Wii a while back. Turned out the daughter tried to play a DS game in it and got the thing stuck in the disk drive.

Do you work for a game retailer? All those questions are spot-on, and absolutely hilarious.

I'm sure it's going to happen, but no more than those people who bought xbox360 games for their xbox, ps2 games for their ps1, SNES games for their NES, 3DS games for their DS, ect.
