Nintendo Land is a sub-par game with only one or two decent highlights (Mario Chase and Luigi's Mansion), it is far from a system seller.


If you think the two worst games on the disc are the only decent ones, you have a horrible taste in games.

No matter how weak the Wii U sales are now, they are likely to get worse. The launch dates of key games seem to be slipping from March quarter to June quarter, including the important Pikmin, Wario and Wii Fit franchises. The Wii U now must depend on Rayman and Lego City in coming months.

[More from BGR: Paid apps are history]


I like how they say it must depend on Rayman and LEGO City like it's a bad thing. Oh no, Wii U must rely on what are sure to be two quality exclusive games based on the previous excellence of the two franchises to survive! HOW TERRIBLE! If only it was more like the PS Vita and had to depend on ports and mediocre titles to survive, it would be in much better shape!


LOL, I kinda agree with this. WiiU is pretty sparse at the moment but some of the upcoming games look original, phenomenal, and exlusive. Sucks that fans have to play the waiting game, but with these titles and very likely Zelda, Mario, and Fire Emblem games, I don't think Nintendo is Nintendoomed, I just think fanboys on other systems are more vocal to try and discredit it because of these unstopable exclusives they know are coming but have to get their blows in before they are announced and have to find somewhere else to troll...which has huge backlash: just look at all the revenge trolling people are doing now that Pokemon X and Y are going to hurt the Vita even more.

It's too bad Persona 4 Golden wasn't ported to Wii U; it would be far more enticing to purchase had a RPG like that been in its launch window. Much better than that third-person shooter masquerading as a Bioware RPG.

They launched with virtually no games.


NSMBU, Nintendo Land, ZombiU... did they suddenly stop existing?


Pretty much. Those aren't anywhere near big enough to sell consoles. Sure, the NSMB franchise sells, but it doesn't sell consoles. They need a Zelda, or Smash Bros., or a real Mario game to really get the WiiU to sell. Pikmin ain't gonna cut it.

Side scrolling Mario games almost always sell better than 3D Mario games.

I wonder if any of the NDF went to that article's comments and started harassing people like they do here.

*Nintendo launches console with over 20 titles*

"It has no gaems! derp!"


*PS Vita launches with over 25 titles*

"It has no gaems! derp!"

You Nintendrones have some really awful logic.

The only reason I'm reluctant to get a Wii U is because I'm afraid I'm going to scratch up the touchscreen on it. That's the only reason I haven't bought a ds, or 3DS too :(
