    What do you think, is Nintendo doomed?

    DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO--msteady Friday was yesterday.

    This. Every single argument against the Wii U's specs are suddenly null 'n void.

    As for everythin' else the nay-sayin' gamers might utter, t'is a load'a bull far as I'm concerned. For example, why the hell would console gaming outright die to mobile gaming? Movie theaters still exist as an entertainment medium, despite DVDs, things like Netflix, and piracy bein' at an all-time high. As it's been said time 'n again in other threads regardin' this topic, console gaming offers an experience portable gaming on a smart phone won't be able t' even properly imitate for a very long time.

    That, and I'm relatively confident in assuming that gaming piracy 'n borrowing games (or Gamefly, for that matter) are less common than movie piracy and legal methods of watchin' movies without givin' much or no profit t' the copyright holder.

    Needs more games. Or at least, more trailers and info on games.

    Exclusives?

    Some developers are moving away from it

    What about stuff like Pikmin 3, Super Smash Bros, New Super Mario Bros U, Xeno U, Wind Waker U, etc? Stuff like that is enough to get me to buy it. And that's not including the non version exclusives like Ass Creed.

    WWU really is just a re-release... And I think you're just defendin' the Wii U by mentionin' SMBU, like hell that game sells consoles t' anyone but casual gamers.

    The Wii U doesn't have many games. A decent enough amount; perhaps a good few, even; considerin' how failtastic launch window game lists have been for the past few generations, but Ninty still don't got a truly notable amount. That'l change real quick 'course, but my point is that the Wii U ain't got that great a list of games right now.

    It's a remake, I don't care if some consider it a re release, it'll be awesome and worth buying regardless. In the eyes of many, at least. Me included. :/

    And I guess, but it's still a good game that's worth mentioning. It's not a revolutionary game, it's just a good game.

    I know, my point was that there will be more games coming out, so it's still worth investing in.

    This, we can agree on.

    Not that waitin' for a price drop is a bad idea.

    Come on..the WiiU is just a "baby" console in it's release. All consoles suffer from lack of games ETC at launch and some more after it's launch.
    WiiU..this is NINTENDO were talking about here they are not going to fail with bringing us good games. Whether we get remakes, ports, exclusives, whatever..the WiiU WILL be great more so than what it is right now. We still have firmware updates on the Way like in April for example not to mention the other additional game patches which in both cases will grant us additional functions ETC. To our doubters you'll see come this E3.

    Just keep in this mind what everyone is saying about the WiiU right now they'll be saying about the PS4 and Xbox3 when they come out.
