So is this console dying?

The only game I've seen that looks great on it is pikmen.

I wouldn't write it off until next Christmas. That's a realistic look at it. By then, the Wii U would have 3 holidays to work with...if it can't take off then? I'd say Nintendo starts early on the next console. The Wii U will probably see a 4 year lifespan.

On the the other hand. If the software helps it move GC numbers? Nintendo will stick it out for about 5-6 years. Remember, they are a company, and the 3DS is killing it right now. They'll just feed of off the 3DS if the Wii U pulls GC numbers.

GBA/GC era revisited if you ask me.

The Game. When you think about the game you lose the game. You just lost the game. Welcome to the game.

At the end of the day, when did we as gamers forget that major consoles can fail?

Anyone remember the Virtual Boy? I bet at the time if internet forums had of existed as much then, people would be saying the same things they are now, then. No one can contemplate a games console made by a big company, fail. But it does happen.

Virtual Boy was beyond worse. There was no credible argument to make in favor of the Virtual Boy. The Wii U had more games on release day than the Virtual Boy had released over its entire life span. It never even cracked a million units sold,
