I hope that Nintendo has finally learned that naming their consoles to be similar to previous platforms is a bad idea and confuses consumers. Oh well, better luck next gen. Still can't wait for the titles that'll be released :D
Most consumers are born to be confused. --- Game credits roll, and all I see is a whole lot of useless positions and titles. No wonder why they cost what they do.
I own a Wii U, and even I can admit that it is probably the most ridiculously stupid name for a console to date.
I second that!
They spend years creating peripherals named Wii this and Wii that. OF COURSE the general public will assume the Wii U is just a add-on. It doesn't help when the advertising is bollocks and does nothing to point out "Hey! This is a new console!" They just show the dumb controller.
This! I'm sorry but the unknowing people are simply going to think the Wii U is just an add on, and people in the stores really actually have been thinking just that.
Even that isnt a problem, till they hear the price of it. Then you tell them its a full console and they're mad it will take another HDMI port. --- If I support the game company, then I won't be supporting the blank DVD business.
I'm not questioning Nintendo fans knowing that Wii U is a new console. Any Nintendo fan, such as myself, would research into any new looking thing related to Nintendo products. A large consumer base for Nintendo products are parents and families with younger kids who don't know any better. --- SSF4 (3DS) Maining Makoto - RINDO-KAN KARATE IS THE BEST!!!!
Oddly this is the phrase I think whenever I hop on Xbox Live and try to play a multiplayer game with "people". --- Since this game rely on micro transaction when people leave for mop this game will be I survive. - MageGuyInfinity
