Not dead, but since almost noone is making wii u games, ill be surprised if we get more than 10 good games before its replaced.

The game itself is a great success, but it only managed 140k hardware increase, it sold 2 million, so that means most sales are from current wii u owners not increased interest.

In terms of selling to more people and expanding install base I wouldn't say wii u is back in the game, but they are catering more to fans already and enjoying success that way.

I accept the bet, if WII U only gets 10 games I buy you an eshop game, and if get more than 10 (AAA or Indie) before its replaced you buy me an eshop game

Ediit: you are so confident that this will happen for sure , so it will be a piece of cake for you, are you in or are you out?

No because it's not getting anything this year except Smash with zero 3rd party support and MK8 will be the worst MK when it comes to game sales and Wii U has all ready died a little after the release of MK8,360 outsold Wii U last week,it will get little boost's 2 or 3 times a year with each exclusive released,people now are just using it as there 2nd or 3rd console as a back up,mine is not even hooked up until Zelda or Star Fox is released,no 3rd party support just kills any console,it was never dead and won't flat line but its going to finish in dead last and sell less then GC.


1.) this giant sentence is practically dangerous. it could break a human mind.

2.) nothing this year except Smash Bros.
and Bayonetta 2.
and Hyrule Warriors.
and Cpt Toad.
and Devil's Third.
and Sonic Boom.

Those are all niche games. Not saying they are bad, but people are not going to buy Wii Us en mass to play them.

Wii U was never dead, but it will probably be dead in 2018 though.

People keep saying the WiiU is getting no games, and they're wrong. And every time someone shows that it is wrong, someone like you keeps trying to change the subject to sales. Even if you're correct, your point is completely irrelevant.

People forget to realize about Nintendo consoles is all you really need is Zelda, Smash bros, and MArio Kart 8 and it will still sell well. It is probably gonna come in 2nd this gen, because the only real battle is between Microsoft and Sony, and I doubt Xbox is gonna catch up to Sony anytime soon. In short Nintendo never abandons a console early.
