The name Wii U is probably one of the things that really hurt it this time....

No, not for the reason people probably think I am talking about. I understand they wanted the brand recognition from the casuals.

Sony goes playstation. ps2 ps3 ps4. Microsoft is Xbox, xbox 360, and then an unreleased called 720 by many people. I dont think the term "U" distinguished itself from the Wii name as a predecessor like a numerical value would, so people considered it the same console. I think this would have solved the problem of people thinking its the same console just a tablet addon.

Would you have preferred Gamesphere or Nintendomination?

What an original and never-before-heard about topic.

Hey, guess what, the 3DS suffered the same problem. Look where it is now.
