Ever heard of 'word of mouth'? You haven't even tried to enlighten them?

This really does fall on nintendo. It's their job to let the people know what their product is...

This doesn't change the fact that it's nintendo's job to sell their product. the consumer shouldn't have to sell someone elses product to themselves... that such foolish thinking. If they made the Wii U look like something that people actually want then people would buy it. Look at how aggressively sony is marketing the PS4. There is no comparison.

If he wants the Wii U to succeed like he stated, then he could at least give them a clue.
I haven't watched TV or seen a game advert (adblock) in who knows how long and I still managed to conduct the basic research needed to find out that the Wii U is indeed it's own thang and not some sort of Wii accessory.

If people can tell the difference between a DS, a 3DS and a 2DS then they very well should be able to differentiate between a Wii and a Wii U.

Having said that, it wouldn't hurt Nintendo to advertise some more. Even though I find commercials to be intrusive as hell and can really put me off a product, it doesn't mean everyone feel the same way. Some people just have to be spoon-fed.

How do i enlighten people who dont know me? I dont just walk up to random people and try to sell the Wii U, that's Nintendo's job

A lot of people I knew thought you could just cut the side off a game-cart of a 3DS game and play it on a DS.

I don't think Nintendo thought people could be SO STUPID(and/or too lazy to look it up)

Its actually kinda annoying that every time I bought a WiiU game the staff asks me more then once if I know that this is a WiiU. game.

You have to own a WiiU.
