How would you fix the problems that the Wii U has...

#1MR_Smarty_PantsPosted 2/25/2013 6:41:23 AM(edited)
How can Nintendo fix the problems as follows, so the Wii U can not only survive but take back number 1. It has:

1) The worst 3rd party support, and it will be that way indefinitely it seems.
2) Poor sales even for this time of year.
3) Only strong point is first party titles and they are getting stale.
4) No AAA games out, and the one's that are announced are far off.
5) Lack of games in general.
6) Poor online service.
7) Gimmicky bulky controller that has to be recharged every 5-6 hours.
8) Without question, the weakest of the next gen consoles.

You dont fix these problems. These are all problems that fanboys can overlook. So all you need to do is appeal to the fanboys and create new ones. Releasing a new 'mario' game will help in this regard.

As it has always been people buy Nintendo consoles for its exclusives. So id just try to make sure to release a lot of high quality first party titles. But youd need to make sure many of them come out at regular intervals (similarly to whats happening to the 3ds at the moment with the Year of Luigi: lots of games in a short time interval).

I wouldnt consider the controller to be a problem the console has. It has a great concept (off screen play), features a pretty nice screen that (as Nintendoland prooved) can be used for some great gameplay, and feels nice to hold. The battery life is not that great though.

1-5 are all time based and will resolve themselves by year end. System is out longer, Nintendo games come out, system sells better, system gets more support.

6 is one they can do something about. Getting a real account system in place should be priority one. The fact that you can't transfer your purchases to a new system or share them with 3DS is beyond stupid.

7 and 8 are both trivial and won't affect sales in any way.

Coming from the person with the worst grammar in all of gamefaqs, I'll take this post for what it is. Seriously, anyone who pays attention to what you write would be embarrassed for you.

I like how you say 8 is trivial and won't affect sales in any way even though there are gamers who value graphics over all.

Think about your statement, it's one that is argued almost everyday through out the internet. If you actually believe there are people who won't buy the PS4 over the Wii U strictly because of it's graphical prowess, then you are not aware of a good chunk of the gaming consumer base.

Yeah, nice job backing that statement up. If you want I can definitely back mine up. That is if you don't mind being embarrassed.
