Wii 2006 skepticism, meet Wii U 2012 skepticism. I doubt your alone Lokust.

However I think you'll be proven quite wrong.

I barely use my Wii compared to my PS3, Xbox360 or PC. Wii-U smells like failure.

The Wii sold more units than the PS3 and the xbox 360. The Wii is the only console actually doing things differently, and that sells.

And, as people have pointed out, it only made money for Nintendo. Third party games sold like crap, the attach rate was crap, and sales have fallen off a cliff so hard that Nintendo has lost enormous amounts of money over the last numerous quarters.


Beamer, you get the "I have no idea what I'm talking about" award in more posts than anyone else here on BN. Well Cutter and Dades come pretty close.

Hey, maybe if they chime in here you guys can race for it!

What part am I wrong about?
Randy Pitchford said, just this week, that it only made money for Nintendo.
Here's an article, albeit from 2010, about how the Wii lags in attach rate.
Here's a list of the best-selling Wii games, the first of which isn't published by Nintendo is Just Dance 3 at #15
And here's an article about how Nintendo has experienced losses for H1 2012, hundreds of millions of dollars, and was forced to reduce its net income estimate by 82%, obliterating its stock price

Not sure what part of my post makes you think I have no idea what I'm talking about. Maybe I exaggerated, but developers ARE complaining it only made money for Nintendo, third party games didn't sell very well for it, the attach rate lagged behind the other systems (and is light years behind if you discount first party titles), and sales have fallen off so hard that Nintendo has lost millions of dollars.

What part of that are you disputing?
