Are you doing alright, man? From what I've read of your posts this isn't like you, and some of your statements are pretty nonsensical.

If you really are just that dissatisfied with Nintendo, maybe you're not part of their audience anymore. Maybe you're more of a PC gamer, or not much of a gamer at all.

One thing is for sure though, this is not a joke console. This is the future of Nintendo gaming. You can either choose to accept it or move on to something else when all of the vital information is revealed and its release nears.

In the end, it's just a console.

Hahaha,

I love how people rant and badmouth a system that has only been revealed for a day. I would understand the post and give they guy some credit if he actually knew what he was talking about. Have you personally seen the Wii U in action? No. Have you played any games on the Wii U? No.
I know it's your personal opinion, and that's fine. It's just that I felt like I was reading a letter from an angry 7 year old who didn't get what he wanted for Christmas. Now how can I take someone like this seriously?
All I'm saying is, don't criticize a system that you haven't even tried.
When the Wii U comes out, who knows what's going to happen. Sure, it might be exactly like the Wii, or it might be the greatest thing since sliced bread

Here's something to ponder.

I'm hopeful that this means that the Wii U will be marketed at a low price. While I love Nintendo, I can't lie that I love a good price a bit more.

I suspect that shares have dropped off a bit as people hold off buying a Wii in anticipation of a newer, shinier console that does all a Wii does, plus a bit more.

i not really sure that's how the market mentality works.

I read the first line that said "I wanted something new"! and stopped, what a 6.2 inch screen on your controller isn't good enough for you?

The only problems I have are the name. And the controller looks a little uncomfortable, but, overall I think it's fine.

You know, you seem to be against gaming in general. All your arguments contradict each other, and you're stubbornly not accepting any company's products. How do you expect any satisfaction when you don't give way for flaws just because of your own personal expectations?

Piece of advice, go play Ludo or something, and quit video-games in general. Or build your own console.

On the name issue, I wouldn't pay too much attention to it.

If there is one thing games companies can't do, it's name their consoles.

Back in the day, they just used words like 'Super' or 'Mega', because we all know those words are, like, cool. Right kids?

Super NES. Mega Drive.

Then we have the cube that you play games on - it's a Game Cube. The box shaped console with a big X on the front - yup, that's an Xbox alright.

Sony followed up the Playstation with the Playstation 2. And as if that wasn't genius enough, that followed that up with the Playstation 3.

Hey, what's the first letter of Nintendo? How many bits is this console? N64 baby! There was an entertainment system made by Nintendo years ago... can't remember what it was called now though.

You remember the fuss over the name of the iPad? It didn't exactly go down well with everyone.

So yeah, Sony, Microsoft, Nintendo - they couldn't name a console to save their lives. It wont make the games any better, or indeed worse. It wont change the price. It wont really make any difference.

Also, any name, given the fullness of time, will grow on you.

...but I was mainly interested in the concept of it doing Four Swords/Crystal Chronicles style games, where you can be playing co-op but with each player getting their own unique screen with extra information, etc.

If this is true, my level of excitement has diminished considerably, as I am also very interested in the Four Swords style as well. Let's hope that Destructoid got this one wrong, and there can be 4+ tablet controllers.

good news today then, with Miyamoto brainstorming about using a 3DS as a controller. hooray!

haha this post is hilarious. But, I do feel the Wii U is only another peripheral for the Wii. They haven't shown anything to make it stand apart from the Wii, and besides brand recognition, I think keeping the Wii name was a mistake.

You... do realise that the financial markets and hardware/ software sales are not necessarily related?

Markets are all about guessing future stability and profitability. They don't care much at all about how well something has done, they're more concerned with guessing how well things will do in the future. The fact that people might be "holding off" buying a Wii (and who are these people still without a Wii? Will they be buying the Wii U?) doesn't have much of an impact at all. If the end result is that a lot of people really, really, really want a Wii U then that's a huge positive.

The drop in Nintendo share prices has more to do with investors and analysts having expectations for the Wii U that weren't met.

People who are good at investing do not guess. It's as simple as that. The look at a company, how it is currently performing, what is on the horizon for that company, and the broader trends around that market.

The Wii U is a direct successor to the Wii that, while impressive technology, is going to be released contrary to current popular trends in gaming. The Wii U doesn't promise much in terms of social, casual (as in, iPhone casual) and digital downloadable content from what Nintendo has shown us so far.

Because dominant market wisdom is that the future is in mutiple-featured devices that do more than gaming, are casual in orientation and are socially orientated, it would be a risk to hang on to Nintendo's shares - they have not come up with a console that is a guaranteed sale.

Look at where the acquisitions and product development are happening: EA's acquired iPhone developers (Firemint) and publishers (Chillingo). Square Enix and Tecmo Koei have invested heavily in Facebook games and, incidently, Zynga is the most valueable games software company around right now. Activision, the traditional games publisher, has scaled back many of its traditional activities like Tony Hawk and Guitar Hero.

Microsoft, Sony and Apple are all about cloud and digital downloadable gaming now.

Nintendo stands alone. That is a risky, risky investment.

and then they make a guess based on that. It's an educated guess but it's still a guess
