When you have the disposable income to buy a Wii U in its doom period while owning a PS3, surely you expect and can afford both. Does that answer your concern?

Yes but here's the thing: GTA V will get easily fives times whatever marketing TW101 gets. I can almost promise you the Wii U owners that have a PS3 or 360 will buy GTA V before they buy TW101. I'm not a GTA fan, but I tell it how I see it.

We've had this discussion before on these forums and you'd be amazed at how many of us are actually going for The Wonderful 101 instead.

I guess you have a point there. I'm deciding between that or Pikmin 3 myself.

@WebHead

Yar - I'm one of those people going for 101 instead of GTA. I'm sure there are lots of people out there with 360/PS3 and a Wii U (me included), but the games are so different that I don't see them as competing for my dollar. I'm also in my 20s with a full-time job, though, so I could get both if I want. The only time I would view two games as "competing" for my money would be if they were almost exactly the same. CoD releasing the same time as Battlefield, for example. In that sort of scenario I would only get one game initially and then wait to buy the other if I wanted it that badly.

No, not what anyone said. What I meant was that if a new Dreamworks animation came out at the same time as the new Christopher Nolan flick there wouldn't be a huge overlap in audiences. You couldn't reasonably argue that poor ticket sales of Shrek 8 were because everyone was dazed by Inception horns because they were targeting two different audiences. Is there overlap? sure. Is it that significant? I don't think so.

Probably will take off for a little and then drop off the face of gaming again like before.

Mario Kart alone will make more money than any of us will see in our lifetime so I doubt it.

also can you stop conveniently only posting to blast a single console, it's creepy

Bioshock is 10 years old. Let's play through its horrific environment and see why its so beloved!

As far as I know, people were judging the console before anyone knew anything about anything. It's called jumping the gun, and it happened 1.4 years in advance this time.
Wii U "doom and gloom" is the most early gun-jump I've seen in the history of gaming in regards to unfounded criticism.

How posts like this still exist is more questionable than the post itself, in this case.

I plan on getting the Wii U, there are plenty of games on it that I am interested in. However, I think a lot of the criticism over the Wii U is not unfounded.

I think it's unfounded, because the situation is completely phyically different in terms of hardware and people tend to not realize that at all.

Listen, brooks, we're here talking about people who own both the Wii U & a PS360 and they are prefering the Wii U game. Tell me what friend of yours that have a PS360 and is eager to buy GTA V:
1. even owns a Wii U
2. even knows what The Wonderful 101 is.
I'll be waiting.

I hope it takes off but I think it would stand a better chance with Mario Kart this year and something like wii party U pushed back. I will say despite that the wii u line up is like the best of Nintendo they could do in such a small time frame.

Have to say despite this and being $500 the Xbox One is looking to be the console to beat on games alone. Mabe that will change tonight but who knows,

WAT!

Wow I didn't think the GTA V-W101 would get this big.  But I do think Nintendo is crazy to release W101 the same week as GTA V in the US.  All of the anecdotal arguments of which one of you few, few people will get 101 over GTA aside, the numbers are rather definitive.  As of Aug 3, 2013 the W101 had 2,804 preorders (Link 1).  Now that may have grown since then but I doubt it'll get to 64,000 by launch.  64,000 is the preorders that pikmin 3 had in the US just before launch (link2), and the jury's still out on how much impact the game will have on console sales.  W101 won't even reach that tangible level of enthusiasm, thus probably a lesser impact.  IMO, I think the W101 would fare better were it to drop same time as Europe, in Aug.
