And most of the games can be bought on the last gen system??? Why isn't the Wii U winning?



Gaming is dead.....

Hype, man. With hype, you don't need games.

Marketing marketing marketing. I don't care what anyone else says, the Wii U's one and only problem is poor marketing. PS4 has great marketing with nothing to back it up and it's flying off the shelves.

Or maybe its the promise of the abundance of games and an extremely reliable future?

Nintendo has to rely on its own stuff now since third parties are long gone. If people are not a fan of Nintendo's games the Wii U is of no use to them. And yes, hype helps a bunch also, which Nintendo barely did when the U came out.

- Good marketing
- Good price relative to power & features
- A rather loyal fanbase that loves to brag about how good Playstation is and spreads the word
- Good influence on media
- Gives the gamers what they want in terms of AAA games

Compare that to the Wii U:

- Terrible marketing & name
- Nintendo does a poor job showing off that the console is more powerful than the previous generation and thus, people say it's overpriced
- Gamepad that Nintendo hardly does anything with
- New Super Mario Bros. and Nintendo Land as 1st party key launch titles
- Horrible 3rd party support that delivers constant half-assed ports
- Constant bashing in the media
- Third party support seemingly growing weaker and weaker overtime
- Horrible way of handling virtual console, constantly missing out on online features, hardly any games that have online multiplayer, etc. The online is free, but it's still lightyears behind what the PS3 offered with their free online years before the Wii U launched.

There's much more too. The Wii U could've sold well, but Nintendo made crapload of amateurish mistakes that shouldn't have been made, while Sony is just riding on the waves created by Nintendo and Microsoft crashing into the sea.

Yeah man it's hard to argue with this. Sometimes I get incredibly frustrated seeing PS4 sell so well when its catalogue of games is so poor.

Though I will say I think many people purchased PS4 based on its potential in regards to its spec and the success of the PS3.

Because everyone who plays video games has to like and buy the Wii U and the Wii U only, right?

*scoffs*

That would infer that Sony has an extremely reliable future.

I agree with this.I love my Wii u but nintendo dropped the ball in the first year.
Also Ps4 success has more to do with Microsofts failure than anything else.
Ironically the situation is reversed with Ps vita and 3ds.
Everyone says nintendo might be out of the Console bussiness which is ridiculous given they have more money in the bank than sony.
However sony going out of the handheld bussiness is looking incredibly likely now.
