Consistency and being too hasty

#1laxnd23Posted 1/21/2013 8:11:17 PM
I'm just wondering if all the people bashing the Wii U bashed consoles such as the PS3 or 3DS, or if they blatantly ignored the faults of those consoles that they accuse the Wii U of, or if they just decided to hate everything.

My point is that many of the people bashing the Wii U bash it for not having many games or being too expensive. But as we all recall, the PS3 was very much criticized for the same things when it first launched and it recently overtook the 360 as second best global sales of any home console last gen. And the 3DS was bashed, arguably more so than the PS3, for the same faults, and is currently on track to outsell the DS, the best selling handheld ever and second best selling video game console, behind the PS2. So are the bashers being to hasty? Or do they just hate everything that's new?

No not really, just puzzled as to why people are so quick to judge something when there is clear precedent as to why they shouldn't.

U mad I'm not mad?

I'm 22 almost 23. And I'm not really defending the Wii U. I'm really more saying give it a shot before bashing it. I've made the same argument for the Vita when it first came out and was floundering and will probably make the same argument for the PS4/720 if they start to flounder and people bash them too early.

If every console was judged on its first two months the way the Wii U has systems like the PS3 would have never made it.

That's what I'm saying. It's like everyone saying the Wii U is doomed blanked out the PS3, or the 3DS for that matter.

Double standards for Nintendo

X360 crashed and burned in Japan at launch and was beaten by PS2 for months on end everywhere else.

People weren't even this viscous to XBOX 1 when it had to drop it's price only a month after being available in the UK and that price drop was by that console's maker not retailers.

I agree with your post a lot, however the thing is that the ps3 didnt start selling well until they dropped the price, same with the 3ds it didnt really take off until the price drop and a lot better games. I am no hater however I still think the Wii U is overpriced for what it offers right now. The system as it is right now is on par with the 360\ps3 well thats great however those consoles have been around for a long time and are cheaper and have a better library. I think the Wii U is a tough sell, I dont think this will last, when better games come out and the price drop comes this system will start selling more.
