January numbers are out and the Wii U only sold 55k consoles in a 5 week month.
Nintendo has a huge problem on it's hands, this is no longer "games are on the way" this is "something needs to change fast".
Nintendo has never had a console fail this badly in it's history, most other companies have never had a console fail this badly.
I frown upon using the names of other devices on here but let's just say that there's something outselling the Wii U in multiplats and it rhymes with PITA
So what needs to be done?
We've already seen the new value bundle but that's not enough.
Nintendo needs to set up a program to reward the early adopters and then slash 100 dollars off the Wii U, it also needs to move it's first party games to the Wii price level for new software.
What else could they possibly do? Don't say "wait for games" by the time that happens most third parties will have jumped ship and the damage will be done. The Gamecube will seem like a rousing success compared to the Wii U if this doesn't change fast. We're talking a disaster of Virtual Boy proportions.
So anyone have any interesting ideas on how this can be made better?
