I keep seeing ads on TV, in magazines, and all over the internet. That's not including all the demo kiosks, cardboard displays in stores, sales papers, and commercials over radio/TV in stores.
Seriously, where are you people that you haven't heard or seen ANY sort of advertisement for Wii U?

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.


There's Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, too.

It's because they're still trying to find music that doesn't make people's ears bleed and their brains hemorrhage upon exposure.

That song was a terrible choice, seriously.

Hideous. Watch muted for better effect. Watch twice if you want death.


God, that's terrible. That video advertises the Wii U like some flakey piece of **** from the 80's and sounds like when a computer BSOD's HARD.

The pure BAD in that video focuses so much on the "keeping in touch with family and friends" approach I feel like I'm watching a bland and generic DirecTV or Sprint Mobile commercial.

I just don't get marketing. Nothing about that makes me want one (and I already have one!). The product's usefulness makes me want it. Why don't they actually show what the damn thing can do other than allowing you to sit next to your son or sing in front of a conservatively dressed, demographically diverse group of people?

I know there are other videos, but like I said, I just don't get marketing. Why even waste time with such a video?

doesnt help that the commercial made it seem like a addon for the wii instead of a whole new system.
