Nintendo is going under and you defend the company? You keep saying how good Nintendo is doing, yet the Wii U has sold only 1,004,000 units; and is selling 28% SLOWER than the Gamecube. Mind you, the FREAKIN GameCube which had BOTH Pikmin and Smash release 1 to 2 months after the launch.

Now, lets point out facts as to why the Wii U is bombing:

*No advertising left and right like the Wii did.
*No memorable ads. (ex: "Wii would like to play")

*No first party games. Even Pikmin would had sufficed a little more sales. (Yet, they claim they delayed Pikmin for the third party games. Your joking, right? PIKMIN?! If it was a 3D Mario, I would absolutely agree as a 3D mario would have cannibalized the third party. It's like saying the iPad Mini will get retina. NO, it won't or else the selling point of the regular iPad is out the window.)

*Most of everybody thinks the Wii U is a ADDON for the Wii. Great, way to go Nintendo. What ads they do have don't blast the fact that the U isn't an addon.

The Wii U isn't in good standing right now, but Nintendo as a company is far from going under.

Can you confirm this? No, asking your grandmother doesn't count.

IIRC, a 3D Mario is going to be revealed at E3.

Why would they waste ad money during the lowest stage of the yearly economy?

They're just waiting till people have the money for it. Lots of their target demographic don't get spare money in their budget until summer when overtime opportunities start piling up.

Sadly its true. Most casual buyers dont know that its a whole new console and NIntendo's first attempt at advertising never once mention that fact that its a new console all the ever advertise is the gamepad it also doesnt help that the wii u console itself looks liek the wii...

LOL. But seriously, thanks for vaguely agreeing. For me, I think Nin10do will exit the console market and become a third party. The handheld market, that's stretching it, but I'll give Nin10do a %10 chance exiting the handheld market. (Now how much do those analysts make?)

Why don't you just ASK people what a Wii U is? Even my doctor thought it was an addon.

Why don't you provide sources? The people you know doesn't equate to most people.
