Was the Wii U designed to be a children's system?

Everyday it seems more like it was not designed for teenagers and adults. It would be a neat kid's system if they lowered the price to compete with the Leapfrog.

I don't know. The tablet is pretty big to hold and has large analog sticks. Its not just for kids. PS3 is for kids with its tiny uncomfortable controller.

it was designed for the people unfamiliar with video gaming. in other words, to be simple and accessible. TC associates that with children: fair association.

I know it is, ultimately, for kids, but suggesting that it is a device that's comparable to the freaking Leapfrog is insane.

it's more comparable to the wii than leapfrog. wii u is Nintendo taking a design U-turn and looking to release a system that will please gamers and still cater to casuals.

it's the progression of N's master plan

It was built around the Wii design. So yes, the Wii was built with children in mind.

that was Wii.

I showed Wii U to my Grandpa and he didn't know what the heck to do with it but had no problem wit Wii Sports. Wii U is too complex for Leapfrog age kids and adults over 60.
