1. I love my Wii U. I also own 2 Wiis and a Gamecube. I do not hate Nintendo.

2. I want the Wii U to get the appreciation it deserves in terms of reputation and sales.

3. I don't understand why Wii/Wii U accessories (e.g. Wii remote+,) are so expensive. The Wii U, with it's v.Wii feature, is a brilliant family/party option, but if someone wants to buy in to it, buy 4 x wiimote+, 4 x nunchuck, 4 x pro controller etc. then that's a lot of money (currently £400 if you buy that lot at Amazon.co.uk). The Wiimote tech has been around for years now - why should it still cost £35 for one wiimote+? These additional costs influence system buying decisions.

4. Because of the lack of general Wii U sales, those that are committed to the system are getting squeezed. Amazon.co.uk's current price for the Wii U pro controller is £50!!! Scribblenauts Unlimited is £43.

Nintendo's refusal to cut the price of it's hardware and ensure that there is adequate supply of physical copies of games is letting retailers exploit committed Wii U fans.

I recommend playing Wii U games wholeheartedly... but it's a little harder recommending the system to those who don't own one because we're getting shafted due to lack of supply. Perhaps this is inevitable with a system that has flunked sales-wise and so I should expect all this, but Nintendo seem to be doing very little to encourage me to support another system.

Wii accessories were never cheap. It has little to do with the WiiU.

Meowph, that's right!
