It feels like Nintendo bet on the wrong technology this time

Betting on motion controls low-end graphics made the Wii a success, betting on a screen in the middle of the controller with low-end graphics seems to be whats making the Wii U struggle.

I'd take a $400 console that chose not to have a screen on the controller and used the cost to pack in the best graphics at that price rather than the way the Wii U was designed.

I dont think this topic is accurate, considering we have no idea what the Wii U is capable of yet. But I do agree on one thing, Nintendo has been making a lot of mistakes lately. If it wasnt for their solid history I would have been worried.

Wii Sports was what propelled the Wii to super-popularity. Nintendo was hoping Nintendo Land would do the same for the Wii U, but it didn't.

That's not to say that a killer use of the gamepad couldn't come out later and blow everyone away, making the Wii U take off. More likely it'll just have slow and steady sales to be a moderate success once Nintendo's 1st-party stuff comes out, but you never know.
