Nintendo did the roadshows for a reason. To educate the public.
As far as the UK goes, i think they've done a good job as everyone seems to know what it is.


Do they? Clearly we live in different regions of the UK. I've had to explain what a Wii U is dozens of times to friends and colleagues.

I think that the Wii had more awareness surrounding it.

I've had people ask me when I tell them I have the system " is that a new Wii game?". I've had people think it's a portable system. I've heard others ask if it's a controller for Wii, or just a tablet.
EB Games in my area was actually asking every customer buying a wiiu game " are you sure you have a wiiu?"
Nintendo really needs to properly market this thing


Maybe its just me but it seems to be less marketing than the Wii. And that was small marketing back then. We'll see if there is any Wii U actually in stock in stores this time. lol nintendo when will they learn?

Did they ask you that or was it just you telling them it was.

Notice how I didn't use a question mark there.

the general public doesn't even know how many states there are in the US or anything about their own country.

Yeah though to be far I think they (an TC and people like TC) purposely use only the really dumb people.
