I also beat zombi u arena this week after 3 months out. Collecting the letters of D now and still loving it. I hate it and love it equal measures. great game that was under hyped. Much better than anything I remember on my Xbox and PS3. And I never owned a Wii........

@link53 completely agree. People need to be realistic. Can anybody call out any console that has great software (in volume) releases 6 months after the launch? I have the scars of the last Xbox and ps releases so let's put this into perspective. Biggest gap is that Pikmin has not launched - there is still a load of good software on sale. Biggest issue - the price of the hardware and getting the masses to understand the benefits of wii u over wii.

Oh and a price cut wouldn't go amiss. £199 for the premium edition is the way to go otherwise, it's going to an uphill battle. Surely by now, the cost of parts has come down enough to change the pricing strategy? I'd be amazed if ps 4 or next Xbox come in at anything less than £350. That sir is not an impulse buy or family purchase for the masses. If Nintendo get it right they could really profit this Christmas.

To add balance, I've tended to buy every new system at launch and the 6 months after things are pretty sparse. Nothing new here. Nintendo now need to confirm dates for all its big hitters to take some shine of ps4 and next Xbox. Both these machines will be expensive and have limited software at launch. Lets wait until E3 and Nintendo's own announcement before declaring doom and gloom. History has already shown that the masses don't want or need the best graphics. Plus, the Wii u has decent HD graphics and will meet the needs of most people. I will buy a ps4 or new Xbox at launch but I will still love my Wii u.

Marksolo commented on Review: Balloon Fight (Wii U eShop / NES):

Come on guys it's utter poo and it was pretty poo when it was first released. I speak as an old NES owner who enjoyed many other launch titles over this. In fact, its worse than many C64 games I used to play around the same era. 3p would be too much.
