Depends whether you're defining success by units sold or profit.

If it's units, critics aren't going to be satisfied unless Nintendo sells more than PS4 and Xbox One combined, plus an extra 10 million for good measure. But realistically, I think anything better than the Gamecube, would be considered successful by most people.

If it's profit, nobody knows. We don't know how much of a loss Nintendo are making on the system at the moment, or when they'll start turning a profit on the hardware.

In my opinion a console is a success if it's profitable, no matter how many units are sold. N64 and Gamecube are successes to me.

It took 5 consecutive hardware failures to force Sega into software only territory. Nintendo has so much more money than Sega ever had and the 3DS is printing money DS style. If the Wii U fails, Nintendo aren't in danger of needing to go software only for a very very very long time.

Wii U seems to be improving slowly in recent months. Sales are getting better. I hope Nintendo can turn it into a success. At this point, it could easily go the other way though.

I'm not either. Graphics always come secondary to the gameplay, and I really do like the idea of Link in faster more action oriented combat. But the first thing that struck me when I saw this game in the Direct wasn't "oh, well that's a surprise", it was "oh, those graphics are downright horrendous" followed by being surprised at the games announcement.

They've got time to clean it up I hope. But lets not pretend these graphics aren't dreadful.

The NES games are far too much in the UK to begin with though.

I'm complaining about the UK price. I'd have liked to see it just £1-2 cheaper.

I'm expecting some eShop vouchers for xmas, so I'll probably pick this up next week anyway.
