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


It's time for you to move out of moron town.
People are not that dumb.


Stay in school kids.


I guess that's why everyone is agreeing with me??


you're full of yourself.

So far everyone that agrees is either tagged as a moron or a troll.
might have missed someone


Ah I see...everyone BUT you is a moron right?

It's usually the same for anyone who is ill-informed of a service/product that they have no interest in. The general public doesn't know anything about surgey, and they usually don't care, but the ones who do go out and take classes/do research.

I couldn't tell you the last i product that launched or what it did, but I'm sure I've seen it and probably made that same generalized comment to somebody ( ex : why do you need ___ when you have ___? )

I hear people think it's a toaster for really skinny bread.

That's nothin'. This customer at the store I work at thought it was a miniature shredder for receipts.
More villains need to be protagonists. BiS proves it can work.
Ridley, Ganondorf, Fawful, Bowser, and Dimentio all for their own games!

The main issue is the name. The name, unlike NES vs. SNES, seems unclear. The SNES was super, which made it an obvious upgrade. Wii U doesn't sound all that different from Wii.

When kids, gamers, or parents look in a catalogue for the Wii U, they're going to see the system alongside it.
I used to say Waluigi sucked.

Most people I know(Gamers and non-gamers alike) think it's a revision of the Wii, or just an accessory. Hell, my boss(I work as a transporter at a hospital) thought my White Vita was a WiiU.


That doesn't count though, because my boss is a ******* moron.
