who gets the blame if the WiiU gets discontinued?

Nintendo will get the blame in 5-6 years when they replace it with their next console...

Of course it would be Nintendo's fault, and they'd make that known. They aren't like Obama.

If anything, it won't be the Wii U that'll be discontinued. It'll be the next PS console if it isn't hugely successful.

Sony's in more trouble than Nintendo is.

oh look, another dumb doom and gloom topic.
there is no "if" about it. Nintendo is not going to discontinue the WiiU, mainly because they have literally no reason to.
sales are very very slow, but they have more than enough money to tough it out until their big 1st party hitters start selling the system. hell, Mario 3D, Mario Kart 8 and Zelda have already been announced

A lot has changed since 2006.

Most kids nowadays would much rather have an iPod Touch or iPad than a 3DS or Wii U.

I work at airports and it's crazy how much things have changed. I used to see DSes EVERYWHERE. Not just with kids. . . people of all ages used to game on the DS Lite.

The casual gaming phenomenon started in the mid 2000s with the DS and Wii. Now it has moved on to iPad/iPhone/iPod, Facebook, and Kongregate. Those people aren't coming back in anywhere near the numbers that Nintendo had hoped.


Trolololol

If the Wii U becomes a failure it is due solely to Nintendo whether it be by marketing, support, or whatever else.

Sega died because of itself and Sony is dieing because of itself. You can't blame others for your failure.


Sony is about to announce PS4.. How are they dying?

You just can't make this stuff up!

If the Vita hasn't been discontinued by now why would Wii U?
