Why did Nintendo release the Wii U so early when they had no games ready for it?

Nintendo Land is just another Wii Sports ripoff and New Super Mario Bros. U is a cheap cash-in on an already stale franchise. Nintendo should have waited until late 2013 to launch the Wii U when they actually developed better games for it. Like Pikmin 3, which should have been a Wii U launch title from the start.


Ever since Yamauchi left Nintendos been dancing like a monkey to the whip cracks of the shareholders. Hence why they rushed the Wii U out (to make the shareholders happy because the stock price was going down since Wii sales stalled).

This is also why Nintendos been cheap and lazy as hell, cutting every corner they can ever since the dawn of the Wii era, in terms of hardware design and game design.


The companys sold out to the lowest common denominator at this point and is no longer any better than sony or ms. Gamers come last now and shareholders come first, pretty much exclusively at the consumers expense in every way.


Its not the same company anymore. Just a husk of its former self.

because they KNEW at least one of it's competitors was going to show their cards at E3. can't launch an inferior product after a show like that.

nintendo SHOULD'VE dropped the gimmicky control concept, put more power into the system and asked 3rd parties what type of hardware would they like to work on(at LEAST debate on it). nope. 7 years late to the party that ps360 are cleaning up from and they bring party favors. stupid.


I'm glad you don't work at Nintendo. Or any game company for that matter.

Except that Nintendo has nothing to do with it besides publishing. And awww, how cute, little kid's calling the game bad when he knows little to nothing about it. The LEGO series has been consistently swell, but I guess if it isn't generic M rated adolescent pandering, it sucks, huh? I want to know your definition of "real game".

Ahh the beauty of being a multi console owner.

Mmmm... I'd say a multi-platform user would be a more accurate description of me.
