Who would buy a WiiU for ___ when Sony offers___?

WiiU is going to have it's clock cleaned this coming holiday.

Super Mario 3D World and Donkey Kong aren't going to be enough to put out big sales(they'll still get some, but nowhere near their sales estimates).

We already know that most of the casuals are gone, so selling this console to them is really a waste of time.

Even still, let's have a little fun shall we?

Let's say the real gamers still on the fence are the main target. Nintendo shows commercials like this(trailers for now):

Then Sony shows one of theirs:

How thin will sales be for the WiiU? I mean this is ONLY some stuff(not even including the next gen consoles or games like grand theft auto 5, madden, fifa and modern warfare).

Eh...I have a choice between wii u, xbone an ps4 this holiday season (could buy more than one if i really want to). I have decided to go with wii u first as i think it offers something different than what can be found on other consoles.

I Have grown tired of gritty, brown and grey shooting games to to be honest. Current gen 360 and ps3 still have a lot to offer me also, so I see little value in picking up the two next gen consoles at launch. That's going to be my path into next gen at least :)

I thought this was going to be a fill in the blank topic. Really disappointed.

A "real gamer" plays everything, regardless of what people like you think that term implies.
A "real gamer" more than likely buys every console, or at least the ones that'll give him maximum value
A "real gamer" doesn't use terms like "hardcore" or "casual", they don't care, and just play
A "real gamer".....well, you get the picture.

If your argument is that somehow a game like inFamous:SS will detract people from being able to enjoy the simplistic pleasures of something like Mario or Kirby, then I feel sorry for you, because you are incredibly jaded and simple minded.

YES! A real gamer doesn't buy a console just for the sake of it. it HAS to be worth buying. the WiiU ISN'T worth buying though(for MOST people). Dancing in the sun isn't going to help the dryness turn into the rain it desperately needs. 3rd parties are getting their taste of true next gen CONSOLES and have been wanting this since two years ago. They're not going backwards(unless you have PS3/360 unit numbers). Nintendo doesn't even have a real online server setup(+ no online functions for NONE of their 1st party games this year). They're selling a controller that does NOTHING worthwhile and STILL have not shown why it was made in the first place. People are being spoon-fed 30 year old games. If they're going to stay in 1990, well they'll be there by themselves. spring 2014 is too little too late.

Exactly. "Most" people won't give two ***** about any console ever.
