What can Sony learn from Wii U launch failure for PS4?

Exclusive!
Exclusive!
Exclusive!

Sony needs to roll out all their big guns all at once. Make people talk about the games, the consoles. Ports and Multiplats won't cut it anymore

Uncharted 4
Infamous 3
Demon's Souls 2
God of War 4
Gran Turismo 6 Prologue
The Last Guardian.....(yeah I know, they should just forget this on PS3 and move it back for PS4 launch)
etc, etc

other multiplat games are just cherry on top, but the main course should be the exclusives

No matter what they try to do and think they do right, there will always be some aspect where they do actually 'fail' or its at least perceived as 'they failed' ... So just cross your fingers and hope for the best really.

Naughty Dog only focuses on one trilogy and nothing else so no Uncharted.

oh forgot to say ...a couple new IP exclusives should be included too.

People always like fresh exclusives

I know nothing about the Wii U's reception. Does someone have a reliable link?

I had a look at the roster of games in EB today for the first time. Looked a bit behind the times. One of them I downloaded for free with PS+ just last night.

What are all these knobs for?
To put their hands in the air.

no.

being outsold by 6-7 years old consoles in the biggest retail week of the year is not exactly what I would call 'exceedingly well'

Don't launch your similar console 6-7 years later than the competition.
