Let's face it guys: People aren't buying the Wii U because the Xbox 360 and PS3

...are cheaper consoles. The Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 also play the same games that the Wii U does (and have even more exclusives than the Wii U). So why would people want to pay $300 or $350 for a Wii U when they can get an Xbox 360 starting at $200 or a PlayStation 3 starting at $250? Nintendo needs to drop the price of the Wii U if they actually want to compete with last gen consoles.

It's like the PS3 and 360 against the PS2 and XBox all over again.....

It's because they are well established consoles with huge libraries too.

Yeah, too bad (most of) the public are idiots and will listen to anything anyone says and think it's true.

NextBox and PlayStation 4 will have a harder time fighting there older brothers.

Wii U doesn't need to compete with them, When the Nextbox and PS4 come out they are going to make the Wii U look like the greatest value. There is going to be a system at every 100 dollar price level


100.00- Wii,Xbox 360,OUYA,
200.00- 3DS, Soon to be Vita, PS3 and Xbox 360 with Kinect, some PS3s
300.00- Wii U
400.00- nextbox
500.00- ps4

I think there's three key reasons:

1 - they are cheaper
2 - they have better software libraries and support (even new games like Tomb Raider and GTA5 aren't on Wii U)
3 - the Wii U's main selling point, the controller, isn't new, exciting, or interesting to the average consumer (especially compared to the Wii's motion controls)

Really what matters is games and price, both of which aren't working in Nintendo's favor right now.
