Nintendo did everything right with the Wii...

and yet they screwed up everything with the Wii U.

Where exactly did Nintendo go wrong? The lack of next gen specs? Its empty library of games? The lack of true innovation?

As I ask myself these questions, there's no doubt in my mind that Nintendo really dropped the ball on this one. As a long time Nintendo fan, (not fanboy, there's a difference) I hope they can find themselves out of this mess in the near future and ultimately go back to their former glory.

The biggest difference between the Wii launch and the WiiU launch is that the Wii had all its promised and advertised features available right from the get go.

Wii proved that casual games could be popular, but it's 6 years later and people can sign a 2-year contract with a phone company and get casual games for FREE or as low as 99 cents. Not many people are jumping to pay $299-350 to play "Wii Fit U".

This was promised at launch? If it was, then I'm getting real tired of Nintendo thinking that they can get away with not having features ready by the time you get your console out of the box.

How did they do everything right with the Wii? It was predominantly a Wii Sports/Wii Fit box. The Wii U is shaping up to be a far more competent VIDEO GAMES console than the Wii was.
