I had to make a stop at Wally World to buy some stuff yesterday, and I figured I would check to see if there were any Wii U's since I heard they were sold out everywhere and lo and behold there were Wii U's in stock. At that point, I kinda felt bad for Nintendo because it might be Gamecube all over again.

What type of planograms are they following? 0_o Low priced Wii games next to a Wii U console? Sure it's backwards capable and everything but WTF were they thinking!

Don't kid yourself. If this was a Wii, Xbox 360 or PS3 at launch, the door would be sliding open for a sale as I was taking that picture. The demand just isn't there; consumers are confused as to why Wii U is different than Wii, and even the Nintendo diehards aren't buying it right out the gate.

Wii and 360 sure, but the PS3 wasn't exactly a huge hit out of the gate. I'm sure there is far less demand than with the original Wii, agreed. But don't try to spin that fact as indicating a flop or failure, definitely not this early in the game.

Let's face it, the Wii U simply is not the Wii in terms of sales, at least not for the launch. There are Wii U's readily available for people to buy and it's up to Nintendo to figure out a way to entice people to buy them. I'm sure they'll figure something out.
