This truly proves Nintendo NEEDS great titles to bring in sales. This isn't even an original games, its a remake, and look at what its done. People want a Wii U, but they needs great titles to get them to buy. Nintendo, get with the program buddy! This is honestly getting pathetic. I really want Nintendo to do great!

SofaKing commented on IDC Expects Console Sales To Rise This Year:

In 2006 everyone cried over the fact the Wii was underpowered and didn't compare to Sony or Microsoft. The system went on to outsell both. Nintendo has learned that power isn't everything. Sure you can make an awesome looking game but if its boring or no fun it won't sell. Also, Nintendo is purely a gaming first system, Xbox is focusing too much on TV and entertainment as a whole, Sony is... Well.... Sony.

I also imagine (as well as read) that games developed for X86 architecture will be more expensive to develops for. I read gamed will be somewhere in the 70 - 80 dollar ballpark. With that in mind it no wonder why Sony said that they will start making profit once people buy their first game. Spending 60 bucks on a new game already seems too much, I can't imagine forking out that extra 10 to 20 bucks.

I'd say if the price rumors are true then the big N is in a good spot, just like in 2006. Its the cheaper system that can still deliver top tier AAA games everyone can enjoy. Just like with the Wii and DS as well as the 3DS, its just having a slow start. 2014 is Nintendo's year, bet on it.

SofaKing commented on New Wii U System Update Goes Live Across Europ...:

Im kind of surprised that Nintendo didnt do this as well with the game pad. Its got everything the classic and wiimote have combined. I think the only problem is that the wiimote and the game pad use to completely different frequency to communicate with the system. The wiimote uses IR as the game pad uses bluetooth. The wii games were not developed to use bluetooth since its not in the games coding. But the communication between console and game pad can still be achieved via bluetooth. Its a bit convoluted but its very understandable. I dont see nintendo achieving the ability to use the game pad as a controller in the near future. Unless wii games (not wii u games) in the future are written to use bluetooth. Just my thoughts.
