They truly are nostlagia riding.... our (my) age group that grew up on them... mostly... next to nobody else.

Though I see alot of female names/avatars on mario kart online...

It is the manliest. Takes major balls to sell such a weak console at such a high price.

@scottpsfan14: lol exactly but not a man that plays the WiiU

I think you're right. I'm pretty sure Ron Burgundy didn't play Wii U :)

Fascinating stuff. This is the kind of research they should be funding.

Well no wonder why Miyamoto went rogue yesterday and called people pathetic. He mad

shame he didnt call them pathetic. just the notion of "Your job as a game developer is to entertain me, not challenge me"

As i said before again and again ( and sheeps calling me hater for this as well ) , its a big issue that Nintendo isnt appealing anymore to teens.

Its the new era of gamers that Nintendo cant lure in and that will hurt them in the long run.

If a 10-17 years old kid wont get into mario / zelda and other Nintendo franchises and stick to PC gaming or whatever most probably will avoid Nintendo systems in the future because his favorite 3rd party games wont find place or wont find interesting / getting nostalgic with the same games Nintendo is releasing the last 15/20 years.

Its the hardcore and older fans as we speak that driving wii U sales

When they say 93% they mean it quite literally. There are 93 out of the full hundred wii u owners who are male.

I get that. Shades, coloring. That's like saying to someone close to you, "I don't think you're dumb, but some of the things you say are dumb. Your way of thinking is dumb, b-b-but not you!"

Or to your coworker: "I don't think you're annoying, but the way you do things is annoying."

I know Miyamoto didn't outright call every casual gamer out there pathetic, but the man is clearly on a rampage and is a loose cannon in that Edge interview. Nintendo can be that frustrating.

I think I just found the source.

It also turns out Gone Home is coming to WiiU. Much better news than what OP posted.

True, though he has to be careful, he is a gamer at heart, and grew up with them as most of us did. What he says might cause issues, but its blunt and truthful. the wider the audience gets, the expectation to water down and the lack of effort from the slipping casual side of users just want to be gratified without much resistance.... from his perspective it is frustrating... and understandably so.

Though MOBA's are proof enough that there is a large market for competitive gamers that want deeper experiences, sadly the console marketed is dominated by non-gamer managers/marketers that can't see past their friggin "casual users bring money" data and think it applies to all situations....

What makes you think I'm a console pleb? Not all of us pc gamers feel the need to display our configs in our sigs.

Wii U is the manliest console in the history of men. Irrefutable evidence of Wii U superiority.

I'm pretty sure casual gamers and maybe even hardcore gamers would have more fun at Disneyland than playing games. I know I did, but that's a bit of an exaggerated example on a lot of levels.

The way you act makes it pretty obvious. Als the tantrum you threw and Windows and Mac weren't separated.

those stats are downright awful, ninty must be shitting bricks. their main customers are the nostalgia fuelled 30 years old, they are not appealing to teenagers at all. with the exception of wii all ninty home consoles sold less than their predecessor
