    Default Is the Wii U done for?

    With the Wii U suffering big time since its release, it looks more and more like Nintendo is going to continue to lose even more money. Do you think the Wii U can last any longer? Or do you feel that Nintendo can handle the losses and just deal with it?

    This is my belief; I believe that the Wii U is a failure. It's the sad truth, but it is time to simply say that. I don't believe Nintendo has failed, but more their attempt failed. I really think it's time for Nintendo to catch up with Sony and Microsoft by making a true hardcore gamer console. No gimmicks, just a console, with a controller. I know Nintendo can do it, and I know if they just made a simple console, they'll get somewhere.

    What do you guys think though?

    The Wii U is pretty fun. I don't get why people won't give it a chance!

    I agree. I don't see why it's not as popular as the Wii was. It's going to be getting more games this year, so there's still hope for it I guess, but I'm not sure how much hope will keep them going, well, Nintendo that is. I hate saying it's a failure, but I really do think it's time for Nintendo to go back to the drawing board on this one.

    Because of the controls, and the fact that it came too late to be a hit when everyone already had a PS3/360.

    I love my Wii U. It's a great party system since it works with the original Wii Remotes and the Gamepad is extremely useful. It's obviously lacking in 3rd party support but I think by the end of its lifespan Nintendo will have put out a large number of excellent titles. I know it's hard waiting on the games but they are coming (eventually). I'd give it an 8/10 overall, but I don't care much for 3rd party titles anyway. If I did it'd definitely rank lower.

    Well said.

    P.S. Sword Art Online was great.

    I think it's because of both Kinect and PS Move, along with the fact that the Wii U doesn't offer a decent enough upgrade over the original Wii. (Just aesthetic redesign, gamepad and HD graphics) I haven't touched my Wii since I got my PS3 (and later PS4) two years ago.

    You should really give the Wii U a chance. The HD graphics are a much bigger deal than you would expect (see: PS2 -> PS3, Xbox -> 360 but close to the PS4/Xbone graphics) I don't blame you for ignoring the Wii but it had a lot of crap titles outside of Nintendo. The Wii U has slow 3rd party support but at least the support the Wii U does have is pretty decent from a quality standpoint. Plus, 2014 is shaping up to be an excellent year for 1st party titles from Nintendo!
