'but those are very slim pickings in comparison to current-gen home console rivals the PS4 and Xbox One.'

Slightly off topic i'll admit but i wouldn't say the pickings are that great with those two. I've had a PS4 for about 4 months now alongside my Wii U but it rarely gets used, whereas the Nintendo machine is used daily for a whole range of games/ activities.

I recently asked friends about where the 'great' next-gen games where and they were unable to reach any consensus, going as far to admit that so far with this generation they felt they've been sold a bit of a dud.

Each to their own game-wise of course but I think time will be kinder to the Wii U, it's the best console around at this time for me.

Constantly disheartened when I walk into my local GAME, wall to wall Xbox and Playstation with usually just one or two shelves for Nintendo. Obviously due to the other two playing big bucks for shelf space but it's still disappointing. Interestingly I had a conversation with one of the staff about this and they stated its just a purely a commercial decision, they don't see money in selling Nintendo. Indeed they told me they don't even necessarily bother getting some new WiiU releases in as they don't see the point. A shame.

I do console myself though by remembering that GAME is rubbish.
