I don't get why the UK is so cut off from Nintendo, but having next to zero shelf presence can't help. Nintendo UK are doing an dreadful job on marketing. Where are the sales reps making sure Nintendo products are in as many stores as possible? You can't blame it all on the Wii U's woes when the Wii U is barely seen or heard.
The UK needs that price drop and Nintendo need to get the Wii U back in all the relevant shops with full stocks of the top games. They need an aggressive marketing campaign and to sponsor some big programs. They need to have demo stands in the cities, shopping centers and at big events.
I called the Wii blind, but I believe in my Wii U. It now has a big and incredible line up of exclusive games, any gamer given the chance to see and demo it will be sold. The fact is currently in the UK it's not that the Wii U is disliked, it is just entirely off the radar, it always has been, do a survey and I know it will find that most people in the UK with awareness of the Wii U still think it is an add on for the Wii.

It's no surprise as every Zelda game gets delayed!!! But this does indeed make a once optimistic 2015 look rather empty and it will probably be solved by delaying others games to make the gap look smaller...But here's hoping e3 brings some surprises...Yeah it's a long shot but you never know!

This may sound cynical, but the people who want a female Link are mostly just cynics who will never be happy. Make Link a female and they will complain about the lack of an lesbian relationship between Link and Zelda. Or a female Link will be dressed wrong or will not be fat enough. God forbid Nintendo if they forget to make him black.
I'm happy to play any Zelda game but I caution Nintendo about listening to these people because these kind of people are too busy looking for what is wrong to enjoy and celebrate what is going right.

I really felt like Sonic Colours was close to getting 3D sonic right, and then they blew it!
Frankly, it's time they did what we all know would work...A true 16-bit 2D Sonic - A proper 'Sonic 4'

The U in WiiU stands for Ubisoft. Nintendo should be kissing their backsides they're seemingly more commited to WiiU than Nintendo.
Nintendo have totally let me down. Couldn't give a rats about Nintendoland, we might have to wait 4 months for Pikmin from launch, and the new Mario game is nothing short of generic, it will be the 4th game with the exact same look, I'm bored, I was to see the games use more classic styles ala SMW and SMB3. And worse, this is all Nintendo offered. Not happy. I definatly am skipping the launch.
