Man, it needs games and it needs them now.

Also the Vita picked up a little, this is nice, it deserves a bit of a break.

And Animal Crossing has sold over 3 million?! God damn they love that game!

Games take years to make though, and the system was launched early due to the Wii being in free fall at the end. We already know decent games take 2 years to make. I seriously doubt they were working on many U games 2 years ago.

Its gonna have to wait. They arent getting anything new til Pikmin, and then really not much after that this year. W101 and a GC remake. Thats not even remotely close to enough.

Nintendo really messed up.

They had no need to rush the console out, and rushing it out has resulted in this game drought.

Which results in bad hardware sales.

Which results in 3rd parties being too afraid to make games for your console.

Which can lead to death.

The software is laggy, the servers for downloading games/content/updates are slow(I have a 50mbps connection and most things seem to only download at like 12mbps)

Not to mention piracy is almsot ready and will be released soon.

Things are looking grim.

Yes, Media Create is Japans Numbers.

It's doing just as bad outside of Japan though.

MK and 3D Mario this year as well. Any headstart is good, Nintendo is banking on games vs the new console launches for this holiday season. MK + 3D Mario and price cut thwarted the 3DS doomsayers, Nintendo has no reason to believe it won't be the same for Wii U...for now...

Yes, because the 360's constant heat issues, noise issues, disc scratching, and RROD just to get a console out early was good.

And the WiiU releasing with no games.

This. At this point, I'm seriously considering changing my stance from the Wii U & PS4 combo to the 3DS & PS4 combo for next gen.

At least those two platforms will have the kind of games I want.
