No WiiU games in the Top 40. There are 3 Vita games in the chart.

Price drop is a must.

If they do another 3DS-like price drop, their reputation in the UK is going to be absolutely terrible. They might not have a choice though...

The advertising here was pitiful at best, also the stupid name didnt help as many people think the Wii U is some add on or new controller for the Wii.

A price drop is a no no, I blew 400 on my machine, have played about 4-6 hours on it in total, would be royally pissed if the price dropped so soon.
Playing: Xcom:EU, PC Minecraft, Skyrim , F1 2012
Waiting for: ELITE 4 (still), GTA V, Pikmin 3, Dragon Age 3

They need bigger TV advertisement... at the moment the adverts are rubbish and dont get anyone excited for anything

I could do a better job than what they have right now

That was not exactly an "ohhh myyy worrrddd thats amazing" advert

Sounds like its a new Lego toy... Get Samuel L Jackson to do the voiceover!

I saw like one Wii U advert in the UK. In comparison I see the Playstation Christmas advert a lot more often.

Needs games. Easily.

Everyone i know has one. And each person that plays ours heads out to buy one. So i think you are talking keek!

This. I've grown sick of the Wonderbook advert by this point, as it's advertised all the time, from prime-time shows to reruns on digital channels. Wii U, on the other hand, I've only seen once.
