As far as the press side is concerned, Nintendo needs to write off the Wii U

Nintendo makes a new entry in a flagship series: "Nintendo's playing it safe again. They need new IPs."

Nintendo makes a new series: "Nintendo needs to publish system sellers if they want to push the units they need. They need a new Mario, Zelda, or Smash to salvage the system."

Nintendo gets 3rd party multiplatform games: "Nintendo needs exclusives, not multiplatforms. Why would I want to buy a game on the Wii and I can have it on a more powerful platform with a normal controller?"

Nintendo gets 3rd party exclusives in a new IP: "Nintendo needs big name exclusives to push units. They can't rely on these 3rd string almost indie titles that nobody has ever heard of."

Nintendo gets 3rd party exclusives in sequels: "What were these people thinking? Nobody's going to buy a Wii U just to play a sequel to an franchise that's established on another platform. All they're doing is killing off the series."

This is more a reflection on the state of the media than the state of Nintendo.

Media and Nintendo have bad blood. They hated when Nintendo shined with the Wii. When they reported it was going to fail to the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

We have a winner.

The funny thing is that I just read a very uplifting article about Nintendo recently, too. But trolls only post the negative ones and pretend the positive ones don't exist. Okay.

Is Metroid's gun part of his armor or is he a cyborg like Data from Star wars?
