Wii U units could spontaneously catch fire and Iwata would say it's a good thing because it draws attention to blah blah and people will see that Nintendo stands behind blah blah.

Worked on me at least. All the good Xbox one titles coming to 360 and the announcement for brawl Zelda wii u and the trailers for 3d world
Won me over pretty fast...

"We decided not to compete at all, so when the competition comes out, we can write it off as not a threat to the interest of our console."

That's what I got out of that. It's more alarming that he basically wrote off the core audience in favor of family / casuals. He's still literally chasing the Wii audience again instead of trying something else.

Rock, Paper, Snorlax.
Snorlax always wins.

well he has a point if parents are buying the system and just making price comparisons and software output. I wouldn't buy an xbone on launch or in the first 6 months because it has no compelling software. At least ps4 has some decent exclusives

Also, new Mario 3d game? Bound to sell some systems along with bundles and $300

Yup. 'Catering to the core gamers first' took too much out of them I guess. But to be fair, they gave up way too quickly.

Haha, the old "not really competition" dismissal. Said the same thing for the Wii, yet fanboys keep saying it won.

So I guess we can say the Wii U is about to get destroyed by this non-competition.

They said that about Pikmin, Wonderful 101. Them games shifted zero consoles.

thats cool and all but what about the people who are diehard nintendo fans who are looking for less family friendly games and more skilled options on the console?

I mean the 3ds is flooded with both quality "hardcore" titles that requires tons of skill and easy casual ones, why can't the wii u be the same?

Is Metroid's gun part of his armor or is he a cyborg like Data from Star wars?

Are you seriously implying 3D Mario won't sell consoles? Lmfao.
