I don't see how you could pass up a price like that, even with the current library. The Wii U still has more games than PS4 or Xbox One, and it's cheaper.

£150 = $207

People are paying $300 for a new one, or $200 for a refurbished console, but the launch price WAS pretty high in Europe.

Most places are selling it for around £200 now in the UK not sure about the rest of EU.

Man so many threads on these site become astroturf for Nintendo these days.

To the original question its a combination of a lot of gamers today grew up with the 32 bit era and above meaning they probably had sony or Microsoft systems. The 2nd is Nintendo eff'd up pretty badly with the Wii U.

To the 2nd nonsense being talked about its not hard to understand why the Wii U isn't woth the $300 compared to a Xbox One or PS4.

WAT!

I think a lot of the disrespect, if you want to even call it that, from the 20 and above crowd is the feeling that they are being generally ignored by Nintendo. While Sony and Microsoft market to this crowd actively, and at least give the notion that they listen, Nintendo does not do the same. During the 90s, although Nintendo still maintained a family friendly image, they were also able to remain on top as far as maintaining the technical lead and also catering to a wide variety of gamers..........now we get Nintendo Land on a system which has more in common with the consoles released 8 years ago in comparison to the Xbone and PS4.

To be fair, anyone that gets a home console solely for technical power/graphics is an idiot and should be ignored. Not just because going for more power is a terrible idea that will needlessly cost more companies and thus more people's jobs and trying to justify that in order to play more brown shooters because you're too scared to play games your friends don't have makes you a pathetic human being, but because high-end PCs will always outdo them easily. If I cared, I would have gotten a really good gaming PC and been done with it already.

I agree with the logic that no one of value is fully disrespecting Nintendo because that is a terrible idea if you have any respect for gaming as a whole, especially compared to how most major gaming companies act and treat their own customers or their own franchises nowadays compared to Nintendo. They just find it frustrating and want Nintendo to do better, even if some of them don't realize how idiotic and shortsighted their ideas of how to "improve" Nintendo are,

In High-school, RIGHT NOW, so many people hate on Nintendo for no reason. It's simple though, these people are all the 'popular kids', they get popular by making the right friends, saying the right stuff and doing the right things. Right now Sony and Microsoft are the 'cool thing' since they cater to the over 18s who run the internet, which in turn caters to the 12-18s who suck up anything youtube dishes them out. Dissing Nintendo literally GAINS you 'popularity points' at my school! Luckily for me I have a reputation for beating on anyone who disses me (and I got a pretty freaking built body too!), this means I can take out my 3DS at lunch, anyone else would instantly get the age old phrase "Are you playing Pokeemon!?" followed by hysterical laughter at the mere mention of the game. Deep down in everyone's (non-gamers) hearts, they all love Nintendo for their childhood memories, it's just not cool to express that right now :)

@Pvtottobot
Thats nothing really new either, its no different than the SNES vs. Genesis days. The Genesis was the 'cool' kid's console, and Sonic was the the 'cool' game. Kids always wanna feel mature and grown up, and they think hating on things that are "kiddie" is the ticket. Sadly there are plenty of adults that think the same way.

I think the whole 'disrespect' or whatever you wanna call it is rather overblown though. Not just because a lot of it isn't as malicious as people believe, but Nintendo has been plenty popular despite that. All the hate for Mario, Pokemon, and co. certainly hasn't stopped them from selling millions, and even tens of millions. Heck, those two alone are the two biggest, most lucrative franchises in the industry.

In high school, I never saw anyone hating Nintendo.

Yes, while Halo & CoD were the "cool" games to be playing, one of the players on the basketball team had a DS and played Pokémon Diamond. There was another guy who was a part of the "popular" crowd who regularly wore Pokémon shirts, once showed off his rare Pokémon cards during homeroom, and once even brought an original brick GameBoy to school & was playing Tetris, lol.

Also, even though I loved Nintendo, that didn't stop me from friending people from school on XBL, & playing some CoD online now & again.

So yeah, I never had an issue liking Nintendo in high school.

Wii u has great 3rd party support? in what galaxy? its not this one, don't get me wrong I'd take a wii u over PS4 and xbone but lets not mask the wii u's obvious lack of 3rd party support and say its not really true, that's just straying into pure fantasy land.

there's nothing that's certain... of that you can be certain

Tangential reply here, but it's funny how widely accepted gaming in general is in schools according to posters in this thread. Back when I was in grade school (which admittedly wasn't too long ago), video games as a whole were inferior to sports and the like. Or maybe that's just because I'm Australian and our outdoors are pretty awesome. A lot of the time I'm still treating gaming as a secret shame, and I feel that would be the case no matter what I played.

I just want Nintendo to get their head in the online game. Specifically, there's no reason a company of their high profile should lack a unified account system. I can buy a PSone classic game online from my computer, then download it to my PSP or PS3 using any number of easy methods. With Nintendo, their online store is stuck in the early 2000s, and it's very hard to justify purchasing digital games from them when they offer little protection for your money.
