Tell me again how the Wii U is going to kill Nintendo? The 360 was also sold at a loss, and was released at a similar time.

But it was hampered by distribution... blah blah blah.

Don't bother rationalizing, dude. Waste of internet space, unfortunately.

Well it won't kill Nintendo, but it is a failure. Also in 360's defense for its sales from the perspective of the average gamefaqs Nintedo fan "M$ is the worst company ever, hal sucks, GoW sucks, and xbox sucks" You would assume this abomination with no good games would sell 1/2 as much as the Wii U, yet it didn't. How does that make the Wii U look good? Also the 360 was more expenisve, was not the 10+ year old competitor in the gaming market, and didn't try to appeal to casual gamers primarily.

Once the Wii U get's a steady stream of games like the 3ds it'll be right as rain. In the meantime, the nintendo boards will be badgered by the same clowns who dislike nintendo because it's the "thing to do."

Yeah, all those 3d Mario/Smash/Zelda/Metroid/Star Fox/F-Zero/Pikmin/etc worked wonders for the GameCube

But MS was smart and sold more later by having many break with RRoD.

Your defense is a made up behavior? You trolls really are desperate. The 360 is barely mentioned here. And the 360 was around the same price as the Wii U.

You know what else it worked for? The WII and 3DS.

I like how you refute my post with sarcasm and a tinge of irrelevancy. When did I mention gamecube? I said "Like the 3ds." I'm talking about the Wii U getting fixed like the 3ds. Also, the gamecube era was about 6-7 years ago, let it go.

Please tell me about all of these great Wii U launch titles. Multiplats and ports don't count, because you can just get those for the other systems. Plus, the power increase for the 8th generation doesn't make as notable a difference as the shift to HD that the 360 had. So multiplats aren't going to sell anything, they're just there to keep you from not buying the system because of bad 3rd party support.
