Is there any more news on when a release date for this update is, or is it just a "before summer." I am dedicating myself to beating every Castlevania game, and think the WiiU VC is the best way to do it (Saves so I can cheat those goddamn Medusa heads ).
I wouldn't hold out on that, it'll take forever before they release all five(?) on the Wii U's VC.

Nintendo, please redesign the Virtual Console interface to look like this video!!!!
That's pretty neat, but they should fix the interface issues first. Keeping the rest simple and as problem free as possible for now.

The shelf system kind of reminds me of that Hey You, Pikachu game for 64. The kid had a lot of cool Nintendo-related stuff in his room, which is why I never understood why he always wanted to go gallivanting around with a rat.

Not only is the Wii U actually rather cheap for a new console, if your expecting the PS4 and 720 to be more powerful while remaining just as affordable then your sorely mistaken.
Seeing as it barely outclasses the ps3 in specs of course it's not that expensive. Last gen technology.
Also Kaz already said the PS4 won't be $600 again.
So guess what looks like he's not mistaken. :V

The Vita actually sold out in Japan after the price drop they had, although its Japan after all and handhelds are huge there.
Doesn't matter it's still selling more than the WiiU. Then it looks like Nintendo also has drop their price then.
Also before anyone says "The WiiU sales will be as good as the Wii once the major titles such as 3d mario,zelda,kirby are released"
Won't happen they don't have the casual crowd anymore. The n64 and gamecube also had those major first party IPs and guess what, the sales were terrible for them.
I never said Sony's next console will be $600 again. My point was higher specs don't come cheap, I really wouldn't be surprised if the PS4 and "720" were around $400. When I said the Wii U was cheap I was referring to how its still rather close to the launch price of past consoles, a lot of past consoles were $200-$250 so the Wii U's price isn't a very big jump. However, the weakest console is the one that usually does the best so I wouldn't count it out just yet.

The reason for the Vita's price drop was (supposedly) due to the price difference caused by the yen being so strong. That doesn't mean the Wii U is in need of one.
Your right about the Wii U not doing as well as the Wii, but nobody is saying it will nor do they believe any other console will either.

Um yeah no.
Um yeah
Might have had a better launch but the sales are pitiful right now.

Nah, we (socialit gamers) enjoy a greater amount of income and income equality than you do. I'm going for PS4, cos WiiU will be dead by the time PS4 releases anyway!
I don't think you understood what I was saying.

Plus, Wii U's price must come down for all of us to play, affordability is the main issue here, no matter what kinds of software upgrade Nintendo produce, the price must come down, I know, Miyamoto's pocket is still full of million yens each year!!

Price of Wii U still too high considering its inferior technologies implemented inside the machine if you compare with PS4 or future Xbox 720!!
You do now that Nintendo's profits don't equal Miyamoto's paycheck, right?

I also wouldn't put all your eggs in one basket if I were you. Not only is the Wii U actually rather cheap for a new console, if your expecting the PS4 and 720 to be more powerful while remaining just as affordable then your sorely mistaken.

Besides, its not like the current HD consoles are much cheaper than the Wii U either

Damn, it must be hard living on $10,000 a year.
quote Slash
Yet the PSVita,PS3,PSP,Wii, and Xbox360 are outselling the WiiU.
Looks like the economic times aren't to blame.
Um yeah no.

As far as I know Wii U isn't going well in Australia....

Unfortunately - in these tough economic times though, it's not as if we can just up and buy Wii Us and PS4s all willy nilly when we got bills and shit to pay for!
I heard that, especially for those of us that struggle to make cost of living due to having no choice but to work jobs that don't pay enough to make said cost of living.

Indeed, Cost of living issues affect us for gamers!
