That doesn't mean he's automatically wrong. Of course, I haven't looked into the Wii U at all, so I can hardly speak, but I don't get the point of a tablet controller either.

What he's saying does make sense to me. Don't get me wrong, I love Nintendo, but the Wii U is not looking promising at all.

unluckily for Nintendo however, the last good console they made was the N64 and they caught its life tragically to short.

This guy is the Rush Limbaugh of the video game world. He only says things for attention and has no facts or logic to back up what he says.

I'm kind of in the same boat, though. A Tablet controller can either shoot them in the foot with the system if they do it wrong, or be a blessing. The thing is I found the Wii's motion controls much more fun than this idea of a touch screen controller.

And I'm with Kite, N64 was the best and I miss it already. I can't count the hours I sunk into Starfox and Ocarina of Time.

Isn't that what some people said about the iPad? That it wasn't going to succeed and that it was overpriced, yet look at it now

I'm going to have to agree here, I don't think the Wii-U will do well, but I just hope it does.

Wow Michael Pachter was wrong about the wii and going to be wrong again with the wii u. Yes people will just about anything with Mario in it cause 90% of all Mario game are good. Mario Zelda and metroid are nintendos dream team for years they will always have ppl coming ba k for more

It's gonna do good because next gen Sony/Microsift systems will be shit.

Also no, nobody would be as stupid as to actually believe a piece of cardboard can play Mario, GTFO.

I can see where he's coming from. At the moment, the launch title lineup for the Wii U is pretty bad, all things considered. There's only three core first party titles; Pikmin 3, New Super Mario Bros U, Luigi's Mansion 2. Even then, none of them really appeal to me. I'm not sure why they picked Super Mario Bros U and didn't make a solid platformer to show case what the console can do. Super Mario U, Super Mario Sunshine U, Super Mario Galaxy U?

The third party support is sort of there but we're getting a few ports (ME3, Assassin's Creed III, Batman), the majority of gamers already have these games and adding some LCD controller aspects isn't that big of a deal to rebuy the game for Wii U.

There isn't a single RPG for launch as well. Nintendo said that they Wii U will appeal to hardcore gamers but it looks like they're still focusing heavily on the "family" aspect. Don't even get me started on Nintendo Land.

If they wanted to really sell the console they'd have put out a game that makes Nintendo fans extremely hyped to buy the system. Unfortunately I don't think Pikmin 3 is that title.
