Super Mario 3D World hasn't captured the interest of gamers as much as it deserves and Knack outsold Super Mario 3D World.Super Mario 3D World is not going to be the Wii U's savour. Despite many - and deservedly so - praising Nintendo's reimagining of its mascot, the initial sales figures do not look good. You don't even need to lose yourself in thousands of numbers or statistics either. You just need to know it was outsold by Knack…. also XBone and PS4 EACH sold more in 24 hours than the Wii U did in 9 months.

Many of the bigger third-party publishers have expressed their disappointment with the console, and even Ubisoft - who used to be so desperate for success on Nintendo devices they made Red Steel 2 - have taken a step back. ZombiU may've been an intriguing experiment, but ultimately no one cared.

Does this spell the end for Nintendo's latest console?...............probably yes.

Holidays arent over yet

and even then, Nintendo holds too much pride, the Wii U aint dead, never gonna be

The people who own them will just keep getting all the games that we know are coming

in the end its still gonna be fanboys bitching against it, last i checked sales dont make a console you guys flipped it around despite the Wii outselling every single thing in existance

Also when a mediocre game is bundled with the console, Of course its gonna sell more

Nintendo will go third party when the mods decide to end your sorry account. Unfortunately the mods got to follow the rules, so it looks like Nintendo is staying.

Sega had more money than Nintendo and then lost most their money on 3 console decisions, while also trying to maintain those 3 consoles and 2 other consoles at the same time. Meaning that they were basically wasting 5x the cash for no reason.

For nintendo to do numbers they have to sell more consoles and that seems unlikely. Clearly Nintendo could sell more games on the ps4/x1 than on the wii u. They could also save money on the hardware biz. Nintendo makes good games but they are on a crappy console with no multiplat support and poor online gaming. All the areas nintendo is weak in sony is strong in so it makes sense to port the games over.

If Nintendo can't get sales up within the next year or so. It would probably be best for them to abandon the console and either start from scratch or concentrate solely on the handheld market. They are certainly not going third party that's a Microsoft & Sony fanboy pipe dream.

The only thing Nintendo has is their exclusives. If the exclusives are not moving what is the point of spending money on thr wii u platform??

Wii U isn't going to gain ground against PS4 or X1, and it won't capture the attention of developers for multiplatforms to any significant extent. That's okay because I didn't get it for that, I got it to play Nintendo's awesome exclusives, and games like Mario 3D World will still be awesome regardless of whether it sells more or less than a shitty title like Knack.

I still want either an X1 or PS4 to play the greatest of next gen's titles. To me the Wii U is a supplemental console with games I want that can only be played on a Wii U, which is why I got one. I'm certain by the end of its run I'll have gotten more than enough out of it to justify getting one, I'll probably get more games for it than the average attach rate of the X1 or PS4 will be by the end of their run.

Because they been saying this shit since the dreamcast died and Sega went third party and it's not gonna happen that's how. Plus Nintendo has explicit said they would never do it and would rather leave the market but that was just PR talk, never know though Japanese are a stubborn bunch.

All im saying is there are plenty of gamers (fanboy or not) who would love some multiplatform nintendo games.. And you would have to be a nintendo fanboy to have the mindset of "no you cant have them on the other system."

like the bloke below my post said. He bought the Wii U as a supplementary console to his pc/xbone/ps4. How nice would it be to not have to bother with it and just have those nintendo games on your one platform

Yes I know, just put Microsoft and Sony fanboy because it is system wars after all, wasn't really specific to a platform but still. Also even though they do buy the console alongside the other system for just the 1st party games, they likely wouldn't like a third party Nintendo as much considering a lot of franchises would die. Unless they only have interest in Nintendo's top sellers. in which case they may actually love it.

I read your post and this was actually a more competent than your usual swill.

That is until I clicked the link.

Come on Kid at least put Quotes or Italicize the things you're copying and Pasting.

As for the Topic, perhaps. Nintendo seems to be holding on to it for a bit, though I thought they had said if Holiday Sales were lower than Expectations there was going to be some "Restructuring".

I really hope you aren't older than 12 years old AtariKidX, if you are then you seem to have an unhealthy hatred of Nintendo. Every time you mention Nintendo, it's as if you have to say something negative and want them to fail because you feel insecure in your maturity and want everyone to know that you are "too mature for Nintendo". There isn't liking something, and then there is unhealthy passionately hating on something.

You don't have to be a "Nintendo Hater" to know the Wii U is trash. And it's true they should go third party. Why force everyone to buy a big hunk of shit to play like 5 titles for the entire gen?

Does anyone in their right mind think that a new Zelda game wouldn't be better on say PS4? Probably would have double the resolution and frame-rate. I mean seriously what is that big hunk of shit tablet gonna bring to the table that will make it worth needing to shell out 300 bucks to play Nintendo games with last gen graphics? Nintendo is grimey releasing that bootleg PoS and trying to pass it off as next gen. And of course the sheep defend it. It's like they LIKE the abuse. Stockholm syndrome really.
