Honestly, has anyone seen ANY televised advertising for this console lately?

I haven't seen a single commercial in ages.

I could understand the lack of advertising a little after launch, as there wasn't really much to advertise. Now though, this thing actually has a couple of games out, and a few more coming. They even have a newfangled, almighty Zelda bundle now! Yet no advertising of games or the bundles out now or incoming. C'mon, the new flagship Mario (one of the main games the WiiUs future is riding on) is out in less than a month, don't you think you should start, oh I dunno, advertising it? Oh and lets not forget the even bigger issue of 2 new consoles coming out competing for those holiday dollars.

I mean really think about this. The lack of advertising is mindblowing here. Can anyone give a logical reason as to why they haven't advertised this console? Anyone?

They are afraid of advertising I guess. I have no clue, boggles my mind.

Last gen it was Wii commercial one after another till I starting banging my head against the wall. Guess they were hoping word of mouth would be enough, but they should know better to be honest.

Yeah I see Wind Waker ads maybe twice a week. That's pretty much it though.

Lol, its kinda funny how the one console they released that didn't really need a ton of advertising actually received tons of it, yet the one that needs it more than ever is being completely ignored.

I know Nintendo likes to be those unique, outside the box guys but cmon, this is just ridiculous lol

Yep. They should get their ass in gear and get that machine moving for this holiday. The Wii U is a perfect fit right next to your PS4.

Nintendo FTW. Sonic Lost World is actually pretty good.

Totally agree, however... I have a feeling that they won't really get the word out on this thing by the time the holidays have come and gone. I dunno though, hope I'm wrong.

I'm pretty sure I've never seen the Wii U advertised on TV. Then again, I pretty much never watch TV these days aside from Netflix or Hulu+, and even that isn't too common.
