I ask my friends about the Wii-U and they give me a dumbfounded look because they have no idea what it is. The specs would have been amazing in 2006, but this is 2013. I think it will turn a profit once they release Zelda and the 3D Mario but they will finish in 3rd in the "Big 3". Nintendo is not on the same level as its fans, they just don't get it. They keep angering their fans and they continue to do nothing about the horrible Library of games. The 3D mario and Zelda should have been finished by launch not almost a year after.

You seem to have quite the chip on your shoulder. Come back after the Wii U has been out for a year and we'll have to see how well your post holds up.

^^ When I read that I thought of the borg from star trek. Good to know Nintendo isn't a bunch of lemmings and is willing to do things their own way.

I can almost guarantee my accuracy. Nintendo is failing. When I was a fanboy I didn't want to accept it. I just kept telling myself that they have billions in the bank and they will come back. I hate to say it, but I think they will just be a software company next gen. I think they will make handhelds but no living room consoles. The EA employee is 100% correct, the Wii-U is failing. The concept of Wii-U is cool for like the first month but then it gets boring. They are becoming more like EA everyday. The YouTUbe thing was just the last straw for me.

There's also a difference between expressing your opinion and being an idiot while expressing your opinion. This guy did the latter, and people have lost their jobs doing this.

Well it's not everyday you see a "professional" gaming engineer act like an immature 8th grader on YouTube.

Ha! So true. It's remarkable to witness.

Miyamoto on his desire to focus more on the (hard)core Nintendo fan.

[The casual] attitude is, ‘okay, I am the customer. You are supposed to entertain me.’ [...] and to me it’s kind of a pathetic thing.

You are what you eat from your head to your feet.

I should have got the message when they intentionally delayed Need for Speed and announced a Mass Effect trilogy at the same time they were releasing the Wii U version. I honestly regret supporting them.

As for his comment about sales the same thing comes up. Wii U is doing badly but so is Vita. And strangely enough it looks like Vita was one of the other systems they pulled the plug on yet the media fails to mention this.

Is third party support really the best angle the internet has to use against Wii U? Nintendo have proven 5 times in a row they can thrive entirely on their own games. They don't need anybody. Not only that but they haven't even seen if the others can keep third party support. They just assume they can. The bashing behind Wii U would have merit if there were actual facts to back it up but it isn't. Internet reaction is not indicative of the real world.

You obviously haven't got a clue about software development. And if you call NSMBU or NintendoLand "horrible" you haven't got a clue about games either.
