4 of the 5 best selling video game franchises are Nintendo exclusives. This should be evidence enough that the Wii U will do just fine. All the Wii U needs is some more Mario, Pokemon, and Wii Sports/Fit/Play-esque games.



http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_best-selling_video_game_franchises

Mario July 9, 1981 446.53 million

Super Mario September 13, 1985 275.73 million

Pokémon February 27, 1996 219.28 million

Wii November 19, 2006 192.76 million
The Wii series of physical simulation video games was created by Shigeru Miyamoto in 2006 to help with the initial launch of Nintendo's Wii console.

I love the sims, too bad they got greedy and kept making me buy the same items over and over again each new version.

Nintendo will be preloading every Wii U with an MC Hammer start up video that will go straight into "U Can't Touch This." In place of dancing black men and women, there will be Mario, Miis, Link, Kirby, Samus, Donkey Kong, Starfox, and other Nintendo characters.

Sony and Microsoft can't touch Nintendo when it comes to first party exclusives.

Sure, maybe I'm stuck in the 1990s. Maybe Nintendo is stuck in the 1990s. But it really was the pinnacle of video gaming, and I fully expect the Wii U to replicate that magic by using the same characters we all know and love.

Sad that no one can trump these franchises. Cry elsewhere.
