After almost a full year of undeserved hatred for Wii U, it looks like we finally have a new scapegoat console for people to call names, predict failure, accuse executive management of incompetence, etc etc etc.  Is this temporary?  Will people switch back to pounding on Wii U after Xbox One is released?

Also, I wonder what the percentage is of Sony fans vs Nintendo fans who are currently bashing Xbox One.

So it's okay to divert your hate to another platform even though that platform is not that bad.

Wiiu and Xbone are both pathetic consoles and both deserve to be bashed.

Nope. 3 monyhs after the XBONE launch people will not even care about Microsoft's mistakes at the first half of the year. They will be too buy enjoying their XBONE's and /or PS4. Nintendo will be sticking their finger in their butt looking for Gold or counting the systems and games showing back up at their warehouses with a note saying "We can't sale this shit!"

For once I am agreeing with heeweesRus. The girl in your sig today is a little on the "Man turned Female Hooker for money" side. I am surprised. You are normally ace on your Female choices.

yes and no. yes because xbox has messed up a lot (drm policies back tracking,) and NO because nintendo refuses to release a console that keeps up with its competition. im not talking about sales but hardware and pricing as well as actual games.

I feel that nintendo needs to stop releasing same tihngs over and over again. bring in something new. I love mario games, super smash bros, etc. But a new series is whats needed.

They also have a relatively WEAK console compared to the upcoming releases.

Comparing the wiiu to the ps4 and then looking at their respective prices has me confused. Wii certainly needs to go to about 199 and THEN we can say "ok at that price, wiiU is actuallly worht it" BUT right now it's a rip off (imo ofcourse)

Undeserved hatred? For an overpriced console with miserable 3rd party support and has been in basically a year long drought? Most of the hate for the Wii U is perfectly justified.

Its not undeserved.

The wiiu is just a slightly upgraded wii with a new controller. It cant even handle online co-op on pikimin 3 because it isnt powerful enough. All of the games on it suck, they have for the past year. The tablet battery life blows. 3rd part support on the wiiu sucks. It costs too much for what you get. Online support is awful. Wiiu eshop sucks with its selection and prices. It barely runs ps3 and 360 games so its hardware is maxed already.

People will stop railing on the wiiu when it fixes all of its problems and actually becomes a good system, that is worth owning, and has a good selection of good games.

When did people stop complaining about the Wii U? Why would they just because of policies that never came to be on a console that hasn't been released yet. I'd say the problem with the WiiU are worse since they've been left unadressed and the system has been out for over half a year. Alot of the issues people had with the Xbox One have been resolved and it's not even out yet. Out of the two the Xbox One seems more undeserving of it's hate to me.

It would be nice if Nintendo haters could decide why Wii U is an "awful" console.  

Is it because the hardware is "weird" or is it because "there are no games"?  The Wii hardware was a lot more unusual than Wii U, and that didn't stop it from winning the current generation.  

As for games, it has more games out for it than Xbox One and PS4 combined.  That's right, the other 2 consoles have  zero games out right now.  Catch the drift here?

Not going to happen. The One fixxed the majority of what people hated about it. (the policies) It still has reasons to hate it though (Kinect always on and $5pp price of admission). The Wii U has been out for what 8 months now and has only a handful of purchase worthy games out now, has weak hardware for the times, the controller battery life is atrocious, loading times are still pretty bad even after the most recent update, laughable internal storage, and a price that is harder for me to swollow for what it is than the One.

The Wii U will end up being a great console for those Nintendo franchises people love, but it does deserve the flack it is getting right now in my opinion.

I don't really hate the system. I don't understand the purpose of it compared to the Wii. The leap in technology aren't on par with the PS4 or XBox One, yet Nintendo still wants $350 for it. The storage is too low the games are pretty much the same as previous Mario, Zelda, Metroid, Pikmin,SSBB etc.. games. Not saying these games aren't fun, but Nintendo didn't really innovate with the Wii U in my opinion. For me, it's not worth the current price. If they get the price down to $200-$250 I'll consider getting one.

good post agreed IF they finish last by a distance this gen (looking likely) then hopefully that will give them the kick up the bum they need. They need to get 3rd party on board and to have graphical standards not graphics that are vastly out of date

If it was still June 11, 2013 then I'd say, "Yes." Now? Don't count on it.

We'll just see the status quo: PlayStation fanboys hating the Xbox while Xbox fanboys hate the PS4 and Nintendo just sits in the corner selling Mario, Zelda, Donkey Kong, Kirby, etc. titles barely noticed.

Wii U cricism NOT hatred won't end until Nintendo steps their game up. Xbox One has all the 3rd Party support. Its not gonna get the kind of cricism that Nintendo is getting.

Right I haven't seen a single Nintendohater on SW give constructive criticism it's all a bunch of delusions and dumb ideas. If the haters had a point then maybe it wouldn't be undeserved.

I don't frequent this forum like I used to but if anybody thinks that the Wii U is doing well or isn't deserving of all the criticism it gets then they're either idiots or never touched a NES/SNES in their life.


The Wii U is the biggest disaster since the Virtual Boy. In its current state its a pathetic system.

Heres how it's gonna be for the 3 consoles:

Wii U - exclusives

Xbone - multiplats

PS4 - multiplats and exclusives :cool:

Seriously both systems suck. Atleast Xbone has 3rd party support.
