Almost seems like there's Nintendo employees commenting here. Lol.

Sales have been abysmal for several months and if they dropped the price in the beginning, it WOULD be very similar to the 3DS.

I agree that if Nintendo DID do an ambassador program again, people would expect it but what's the big deal? They choose what to give you and they are usually games that most of us have purchased before anyways. It's called incentive to entice early adopters.

Next generation is going to suffer because millions will wait, so will developers and Nintendo will have a catch 22 on there hands. Unless, there's INCENTIVE! Sorry for yelling, cough!

Quasar commented on "No Plans" For Ambassador Program Following Wi...:

I have been gaming for over 30 years and I have also been frequenting NL almost everyday for years now but this is my first time posting. With that being said, I would like to state my perspective on this matter.

I waited to purchase a WiiU for a few months because I really wanted to wait for a new HD Metroid or even a Zelda because I had a feeling that they would eventually make a special edition and I have plenty of other games to keep myself busy. Regardless, I had the money and ended up purchasing one anyway.

I don't necessarily regret buying a WiiU and I'm not asking for a handout, but I do feel like we were lied to. The media and such have been talking about a price drop for months now. Nintendo pulls a Sony/MS and essentially lies to us by dropping it a couple weeks later. If they dropped the price when the sales tanked (I think as far back as march even) then it would of been more similar to the 3DS ordeal. They held out just long enough to make it look like a normal price drop instead of rewarding the loyal fans that helped support the WiiU in the beginning so the developers would as well. Now we'll have to wait even longer as developers are waiting for additional WiiU sales before beginning on a new title.

Nintendo had the "Seal of Approval" to reassure consumers that there wouldn't be "shovelware" on the NES and Super NES, they fixed the issue with the Wii remotes by offering free sleeves (which they didn't have to) and they rewarded early adopters/core fans with the ambassador program, let alone Iwata took a huge pay cut when he felt responsible for the abysmal 3DS sales. These types of things are some of what I believe had made me respect Nintendo more than the rest throughout the years.

Unfortunately, with situations like this, stuff like releasing Metroid Prime Corruption and shortly after that the Trilogy, (Had to mention it) I'm absolutely convinced that I'll be one of the many who will forever hold off on buying new hardware and software. I have no problem waiting but I do have a problem with wasting money. I guess it's things like this that explains why the sales were horrible in the after launch.
