yeah. the wii u doesn't have an attractive/cheap gimmick for the masses to hook up on.

plus, the masses may be mindless but they aren't entirely stupid. many got burned by the original Wii. they never played it beyond the initial month of purchase despite spending hundreds on it. needless to say, it seems they've learned their lesson from then.

I was one of those that got burned, lol.

I bought it for Smash and then thought I'd pick up other games. Never picked up another game....

It's a bit different.

Yeah, TP was delayed for nearly a year. But Nintendo did use it to push Wii sales early on. This time it's vice versa.

Nintendo acted in their own interest, and now Ubi is acting in theirs.

Nope, I remember people raging about TP, too. Plus, TP wasn't finished and damn-near ready to ship before it was delayed the best part of a year.

Nope, we all know how dumb the general masses are. And If not Wii U will luck out anyway with the success of the 3DS, AND if not then Nintendo will have enough money to survive it's failure.

Implying Wii owners who are just waiting for a reason to buy a Wii U don't like Rayman either.

You can't please em all but you can try pleasing the most.

It's the best way to retain the fanbase.


Or they could release the practically finished Wii U game now, then spend the next 7 months or so developing the PS360 ports. Then they can please everyone.
