WiiU is experiencing what PS3 went through

not 100% the same, but I can definitely see some similarities on how they are struggling to move more units due to lack of games and price drop. We also got reports on how Nintendo staffs are still trying to catch up with HD.

At least the PS3 was a cheap Blu-Ray player, the Wii U literally has NO selling point until now.

My Wii U is not experiencing what my PS3 went through, which would be me being excited to play it every day.

I remember the days of ps3 when everybody was trash talking about the system. Years later, Sony started making more announcements with exclusive titles and price drops. Those years were very painful for Sony.

And the console wasn't successful financially, Sony lost money making it. I don't think there'll be a Playstation 5.

I'm referring to all the negativity that has been floating around about the WiiU. Doesn't matter if you like the WiiU or not.

They came back green in the end with the PS3. As for the PS5, it's a little to early to say, but Sony seems very happy with the PS4.

If Nintendo can pull it through, regardless of what critics and analyzers say about their current state, then they will be the second company to survive in the console market. Next gen is going to be MS' turn to survive.

Yeah, that's probably the main reason the PS3 sold at all at that point. The attach rate was pathetic during that period iirc, which supports that idea.

They ended on a high note, but that doesn't erase all the money they lost. I'll kick a small mammal if there's no PS5 because Sony's other product divisions go belly up.

You call $600 cheap?
