Anyone else feel naming it the Wii U has killed any chance it has of advertising

1. Im not so petty as to get offended by random people not knowing what a video game console is -_-

2. *wouldn't have. Please grammar.

But you decided to punk out and change the subejct. You arent Kirbyfan. Stop trying to be him.

I wouldnt be surprised if your next post was "LOL I HAVE SO MANY FANS" or "LOLZ THANKS FOR BUMPING MY TOPIC CAUSE I COULDNT COME UP WITH A COMEBACK"


WTF Are you talking about?

I thank people for bumping me? Does my topic say

"I want to talk about Grammar rules" anywhere?

So why the heck would I?

Go get a life, maybe a elementary school teacher will talk to you about grammar instead.

Saying "Please Grammar." After correcting me, makes you out to be a joke ^_^.

well that's why everyone wanted them to change the name.

the 3DS has enough problems with people thinking it was just the old DS in 3D and people think the wii u is just a tablet.

EVERYTIME it comes up in a conversation most of the people don't really know what it even is. basically, it's a terrible name. Even Wii2 is better, Its clear it's a new console


The thing is there are no numbers to state how many people and what demographic are getting confused by it. Aside from gamers, pretty much everyone else won't have a clue about anything game related. And all it takes is word of mouth to educate people what it is. Changing the name to something else will not stop people from being confused


that's want advertisements are for.
you should see a wiiU advert, and gamer or not, know its a new console.
Nintendo dropped the ball on these, because even after seeing them people still don't have a clue

The ads forthe Wii U were fine though, there are still going to be confused people no matter what though. I mean they could have easily done what the PS3 did with the damn baby.

The name isn't the problem, the logo/branding is.

People thought 3DS was a 3D upgrade. That lasted a few months. Give it a break.

It might be an issue for some people but it's not big enough to seriously impact sales. Same with the 3DS. In both cases the problems were caused by price and/or not enough good games, not the name of the system.

I dont feel like replying to all of that but this made me laugh:

Go get a life., maybe a elementary school teacher will talk to you about grammar instead.

Says the guy who spent his Super Bowl Sunday night asking people on the internet if they knew the Wii U was a Wii addon.

Also says the guy who made a topic and supplied 49 of the 69 posts himself -_-

Metroid Zero Mission and Super Metroid are some of the finest 2D games ever made and are the best in the series.
Metroid Fusion is pretty cool I guess.

I was on the forums during the boring parts ^_^, when the guys in leotards were running around touching each other and trying to squeeze a ball of air rapped in pig skin.

When the awesome commercials came on I was watching don't worry =)

Agreed. I saw someone returning a Wii U game because they couldn't play it on their Wii.
