WiiU is picking up big time!

#1andizzle29662Posted 12/24/2013 5:32:34 PM
Nintendo has done a fantastic job marketing the WiiU recently, and retail is getting support too. Toysrus has great marketing, and every big store i go to, I see people buying WiiU . I'm very happy to see it build momentum, and next year is poised to be great for us hardcore Nintendo fans , and Nintendo themselves.

Too bad they still appear to be doing crap here in the UK. Even the children don't want Wii U's, its Xbox's and PS4's for christmas (I work in a school so was able to read a lot of christmas list's lol).

I wonder why the UK doesn't like Nintendo as much as other parts of the world.

Nintendo generally do well during the Holidays. The question is can they keep it up all year long?

Same here, most of the kids I teach either don't know about Wii U, or just laugh and say they want an xbox or playstation... Typical ignorant kids.

They generally don't care about the games either, it's just the cool thing to have. It's all just about the image.

It's always been like that ever since the NES and Master System. I have no idea why.

Because Sega got their first and had a strangle hold on Europe, and their anti Nintendo commercials burnt into people's minds that Nintendo ain't it.
