This article got it, they're targeting children too much.

I even remember seeing one commercial convincing kids to tell their parents that "The Wii U isn't just another Wii, it's a whole new system!" because of their terribly confusing name they put on the Wii U. *bleep*ing ridiculous.

Don't get me wrong, I love this system, I own one. But they gotta start doing something new, and not just start putting games on smart devices, like Iwata said a little while ago.

They seem to think that its mainly the parents that chose what console gets brought into the house, and everyone just plays whatever they pick no questions asked. The only time I've ever heard people do that is for younger kids, as in under 10 years old.

Thats all well and good, thats how many of us started gaming too, but that can't be their only target. I don't get why they don't try to advertise being the best all-around gaming console, not just for "family time" and the like.

Blaming Sony for gobbling up third party developers while ignoring their own draconian rules regarding them is just bad form. Its simple lighten your strangle hold on publishing and people will develop on your consoles all day. Its the exact reason you wont see XBLA and PSN type games on a Nintendo console. Theres a reason companies like thatgamecompany et all go to Sony and failing that take money from Microsoft to develop on Xbox

Hmm, what will be the outcome of the management briefing? A new Nintendo console? or Massive price cut or discontinuation of Wii U altogether? Many possibilities....

Well, Why Nintendo blames Sony? Haha, let's look at the rivalry between Nintendo and Sony in the mid 90s, history has shown us clearly of how PS One emerged, i.e. out of a broken promise of the possible partnership between Nintendo and Sony, the latter had managed to secure third parties back then!

Sony has chosen its own way, now it's Nintendo's turn to choose its shaky destiny rather than finger pointing at Sony.

I blame year of the luigi. An entire year dedicated to him also happened to be Nintendos lowest fiscal year ever? Coincidence? I think not.

You know what to do Nintendo yearofthemetroid

Just make some new games people badly want to play and no one will give two craps about what the system is called.

Could be called the nintendo hilterdidnothingwrong and id buy it if it actually had games.

Mario kart 64 and mario party 64 were the pinnicles of those series, super mario 64 was the last truly great super mario game ive played...

And to achieve modern mass appeal, star fox and metroid games need more powerful hardware than the wii u's budget laptop specs.
