I will put this as simply as I can for someone like you...This post is about the Wii's weaknesses and how to fix them. If you want to write about how much you accept and don't care about them and forgive all of them, then write a love letter to Reggie. Other than that, your points are weak.


Oh oh i dont agree with you that the WII U has problems i must just be accepting them. Seriously you need to get a life not one of your points is fact it was all biased opinion. If it is fact show me links to actuall proof to back up what you are saying.

The biggest problem IMHO is that there are no real games yet (aside from NSMBU)
What good is a console without games..

But yeah, it was their decision to use the launch window to get user feedback first to incorporate into the major titles

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.


Indefintely? That's a big accusation. True Ninty sans NES, SNES, and GC to a lesser extent has had the weakest 3rd party for many reasons, but they do get good exclusives.

2) Poor sales even for this time of year.


It's called a launch window, every console ever goes through it. Look at 3DS when it first launched and look at it now.

3) Only strong point is first party titles and they are getting stale.


That is subjective and should not be on this list. To you it may be stale but some people rather enjoy these "stale" games.

4) No AAA games out, and the one's that are announced are far off.


*Throws ZombiU, NSMBU and Nintendoland out the window* Again, every console ever goes through this.

5) Lack of games in general.


You said the same thing above. My response is the same.

6) Poor online service.


I agree, but it is nothing that cannot be fixed. Also if I wanted good online I'd game on my PC (which is always better than anything PS or Xbox will ever offer)

7) Gimmicky bulky controller that has to be recharged every 5-6 hours.


PS4 is doing the same with Vita as the controller. What would you call that? Also you honestly cannot tell me it is impossible to have the AC adapter in the same room as the TV. The only time it should ever be unplugged is if you have to go to the bathroom or something (but we have pause for that)

8) Without question, the weakest of the next gen consoles.


We haven't seen Nextbox yet. Also the last time the strongest console was the market leader was SNES (which was for reasons beyond being stronger). The last time Ninty played the high-power 3rd-party attraction game was Gamecube. Look where that got them.

What are you talking about? It has really strong 3rd party support for a new system and a really good launch lineup.

The charging of the tablet is trivial. It has a wall charger, so it's not it's cord length matters like the PS3's controller did.

If worse comes to worse, Nintendo can afford to start selling it at a loss to compete with PS4 when it comes out. That's the only non-trivial issue that won't be resolved with time.

Prices for the competition have not been revealed yet, but let's assume that the WiiU is going to be the cheapest console of the generation.

What Nintendo needs to show is that they will have more value for your dollar than the competition, and that means they need to secure a lot of great games, both first party and 3rd party, and they need exclusives too.

They need to be able to honestly say that even though their console lacks the raw specs of the competition, you'll be paying less and getting more in terms of quality software.

Games are what sells a system more than any other factor. If Nintendo can secure the best games, that is what will sell their system. Combine excellent games with a smaller price tag, and you will have people willing to overlook the less powerful specs.

I think it's biggest hurdle is that it's simply not going to be able to handle the multiplatform titles that are going to be coming out.

One thing that they really have to impress upon publishers is that their console is a lot cheaper to develop for.

As far as consumers go, it's going to be an uphill battle. They are going to have to find some way to impress their tablet controller onto their current market. Lots of gamers are now of the opinion that gimmick=bad. Their going to have to find really ingenious uses for the device, and somehow encourage 3rd party developers to do the same. If they can't convince the customer, they are going to have a much harder time with 3rd party developers.

1) The worst 3rd party support, and it will be that way indefinitely it seems.
Okay...I'm not really sure how this is a problem. For Nintendo, they managed to get the Wii to sell just fine with even worse 3rd-party support. For gamers, most people either a) own a Nintendo system (for Nintendo games) and non-Nintendo system / PC (for 3rd-party games and the rare decent Sony / Microsoft 1st-party game), or b) don't care about one of those two groups.

2) Poor sales d even for this time of year.
Kind of a redundant point, really. Fixing the others will obviously solve this. I might also add that its sales aren't terribly poor for this time of year - true, the console has hit a record low for sales in the United States in the first January of release, but it's still selling at a relatively decent pace (slightly better than the PS3 3-months-in), and is selling far better in Japan than North America.

3) Only strong point is first party titles and they are getting stale.
Stale is an opinion. Although I would like to know how NintendoLand (a new franchise) and Pikmin 3 (a franchise that hasn't had a game released in 9 years) are "stale".

4) No AAA games out, and the one's that are announced are far off.
This would be solved how, exactly? By rushing games? Then people will just complain about rushing, like they did with Mario Kart 7. Besides, "far off" is still within this year, and probably still before the competition gets released.

5) Lack of games in general.
This problem can be fixed by releasing games, which they are doing (see above), or by getting 3rd-party support, which they are also doing (for example, Watch Dogs).

6) Poor online service.
Nope - not poor. Perhaps it doesn't have as many features as its competitors, but it's far from poor.

7) Gimmicky bulky controller that has to be recharged every 5-6 hours.
You forgot to add "...that a lot of people like," and, "along with a traditional controller with a battery that lasts upwards of 70 hours on a single charge".

8) Without question, the weakest of the next gen consoles.
Wasn't much of a problem for the Wii...or the PS2, or the PS1, or the NES, or the 3DS, or the DS, or the GameBoy, or...
