Default Nintendo Wii U has failed

Quote:
Video game maker Nintendo is doing some soul searching after cutting forecasted sales of its new Wii U gaming system by almost 70 percent, forcing the company to radically reassess its strategy in a changing gaming industry.

The company’s president, Satoru Iwata, told reporters Friday there would be a “major management shake-up” at the company but that he would not resign, Reuters reports. He also promised the company is “thinking about a new business structure.”

“Given the expansion of smart devices, we are naturally studying how smart devices can be used to grow the game-player business,” Iwata said. “It’s not as simple as enabling Mario to move on a smartphone.

“We failed to reach our target for hardware sales during the year-end, when revenues are the highest,” he said.

Nintendo’s disappointing sales have pushed it to a third consecutive annual loss, Reuters reports. The company has steadfastly declined to allow its games—many including some of the biggest brand names in gaming, like Mario—to be played on competitive game systems or on the mobile devices to which gamers are increasingly turning.

You think another price cut will help?

Eh give it a bit. If they still haven't sold say 5-6 million by the end of 2014 they might want to reevaluate their future a lot more intensely than they are right now.

That would be cool. I remember I played the shit out of Super Mario Galaxy and Mario Party 8 on the Wii whenever my friends came over back when I was like 8. Mario Galaxy was one of the first ever games I beat. I never had Mario Kart Wii but pretty much all of my friends that I'd always go over to had it and it was a lot of fun. Never bothered buying a DS and I'm not that huge about Nintendo games anymore, but if they started putting these out on the PS4? I'd buy them.

But maybe this will be the wakeup call for Nintendo to stop f*cking over the clientele and really go next gen.

Default Re: Nintendo Wii U has failed

I was a little confused with the Wii U from the start. I didn't know whether it was a next generation console or current gen. Further, I wasn't entirely clear about what made the Wii U superior to the original Wii. And I didn't know what new features would make it necessary for someone to want to give up on their current Wii in favor of the U. For a while I thought it was just a slightly altered version of the current Wii. I wonder if that lack of clarity to those not knee deep in console research could have been part of the reason for their sales dip.

Personally, I was bummed about the Wii U because sequels I was waiting for on the Wii were instead being released on the U (Super Mario Bros. Wii).

I actually want a wii u, what is truly causing this banishment of fans and sales?

My sister has a wii system. It's horrible. My father chalked up over $300 more for this shit, biggest waste of money in the world.

I just want smash bros and Mario land / Mario party.

I hope they go.back to making traditional consoles rather than this motion sensing crap or whatever the hell the Wii U is. Make a Gamecube 2, I'd buy that and if they still want to make motion sensing games go the Xbox Kinect route.
