In all seriousness, why isnt Nintendo even advertising this thing?

Is this some kind of master plan by Nintendo that I just cant comprehend?

We know the console isnt exactly selling gangbusters at the moment, so... wouldnt you think they would be trying to do something about that? Especially considering that most people either dont even know the console exists, or believe it to be some expensive add on for the Wii.

We know they havent abandoned the console... so whats the deal? Just curious...

I like to think that they are planning the advertising for after the E3 and take advantage of the momentum of the event, plus maybe they have more games to advertise

What would they advertise at the moment at least?

Come play exciting games that are inferior ports of games on other systems you already own?

Once games start coming out they will advertise more. You will probably see it pick up this month as Monster Hunter and Lego City come out but you won't hit much advertising until a big first party title drops since Monster Hunter doesn't sell well in the U.S.

They might also have new bundles to advertise then as well.

The real question is why did Sony not advertise the s*** out of the Vita.

They need a game to advertise if theyre going to sell.the system. That game is currently Lego City. Maybe there'll be a new ad when Pikmin 3 is coming.

Nintendo said they trusted word-of-the-mouth would be all the advertising Wii U would need for the time being due its 'play to understand' nature.
