  1. nintendo will not slash prices on the wiiU

    Nintendo yesterday announced its earnings for the nine-month period ended December 31. Although it was able to turn a slight profit, the company's revenue was down 2.4 percent. The Wii U, which was expected to significantly boost Nintendo revenue during the period, was only able to muster 3 million unit sales. The earnings release didn't directly discuss Wii U demand, but Nintendo indicated that some new games for the console, like a Mario Kart and Legend of Zelda, should "help Nintendo regain momentum for Wii U."

    do you think this is a smart business move? why or why not? are you interested in the wiiU?

    The Wii U was a stupid move, imo. I'm already dreading having to buy the 3DS so I can play the new pokemon games, I'm not spending more money on Wii's obnoxious little brother, especially just so I can play Zelda remakes.

    Oh boy, those new Mario Kart and Zelda games seems pretty awesome! Imma buy a Wii U right this instant!

    I might get a 3DS but likely a cheap one and sell my old ds, keep my old games. other than that nintendo has gone down the drain with games these past few years but the new pokemon games coming out soon look interesting. If I can find the dang power cord to my Wii I'll sell the dang thing but til then I'm screwed. >_<'

    Nintendo is relying on these titles for profit instead of actually trying to make new, quality games and consoles, and that's what really pisses me off. The only reason I have a wii is to play LoZ games and SSB, plus the occasional nostalgic gamecube game. They really need to step out of their little Mario/Zelda shell and start dishing out new games that are also worth playing.

    Now, if the Wii U had the new Pokemon games I can see why. But no, the Wii U is selling poorly compared to the 3DS. It's an interesting idea, they even bring back a real controller and HD graphics, but only 1-4 games look good. They really need to step it up, seriously. And lower down the price too, they did for the 3DS!

    I do plan on buying the 3DS, but that's because there's so many good games for it. (Including Pokemon X/Y.)

    I thought Nintendo was already seling Wii U at a loss, so keeping that in mind it's not that weird they don't lower the price on the console.

    I'm waiting for some decent games to come out before I decide to buy a Wii U. I'm not gonna buy it just because a new Smash Bros. game was announced for it (cough again), only for it to come out years later O.o

    @Soda
    Every console is being sold at a loss, at least initially. It is the licensing costs for games that rakes the cash in. Nintendo also said that the "loss" they take with the Wii U is pretty much balanced out if the buyer gets only ONE game at full price.

    That should tell you a lot about the minimal loss they're taking with each sold console. As soon as somebody buys, let's say, Zombie U to go with the new console, they're good again.
    Meanwhile, at Microsoft or Sony, they're taking REAL losses that will only balance out after a couple of years, and maybe even multiple iterations of the hardware.

    They will later once the PS4 and 720 come out with vastly superior hardware. 720 hardware is already leaked with PS4's leak to be confirmed. I freaking love Nintendo but with the SNES and N64 they were the most powerful and the Gamecube they were competitive. This is getting ridiculous.

    okay so a problem i have with this thread is that it's full of snarky one-sentence comments that don't actually mean anything. seriously, what are your opinions? aren't you willing to give it a chance? it's true that nintendo relies a bit too much on loz and mario, but they also develop the majority of their own games. sony and microsoft have a ton of third-party games, so they're mainly console companies, but nintendo is not only developing consoles; they're developing games as well. i think that is something to keep in mind. i don't know if it excuses the wind waker remake though, seriously.............................................

    Nintendo Games: Mario, Zelda, Pokemon, etc.

    Not really what I call good games on this day and age. Except maybe for Pokemon but they're on the 3DS so...

    There really isn't much of a discussion to be had anyway. Nintendo games are pretty monotonous in my opinion that if I just want to know the story, I'd just watch a let's play.

    For me at least, if Nintendo could get some new IPs on their console that isn't a shovelware, I'd definitely buy their hardware. But now, even they're struggling on that one on the 3DS so I really have almost no reason to pick up a Wii U really.

    you can argue matters of opinion, though... not like you're really going to get anywhere since it's all about taste, but just deciding that your opinion is law is kind of ridiculous... just because you don't like those games doesn't mean they don't hold anything.

  14. #477052013-02-01 09:16:46Rune said:

    Hmm yeah, that's why I littered my comments with 'For mes' and 'in my opinions' pretty much yeah.

    And my opinion is law to myself. Really though, there really aren't much of a discussion left besides of people's opinions.

    And if you're asking if this was a good business move? In my opinion, the Wii U itself is already a bad business move in Nintendo's part. The marketing is just trash and the resulting hardware/software didn't fare any better either. And now, they won't even give up on the pricing, oh Hell...

  15. #477872013-02-02 18:51:38canon said:

    yeah i feel like... i dunno i like the system itself, i think it's good and it's fun and everything, but as far as marketing goes and just the whole way it has been presented... it feels a little lazy. i mean, come on, those dubstep commercials? what the hell are you trying to prove, nintendo? i think it was a little rushed and they're pandering too much to a wide audience that they themselves are not even sure of. so choosing not to mark down the price... i don't know, wouldn't more people try the system and recommend it to their friends if they price were lower?? it really is a fun system! right now it's mostly party games and ports, but given time there will be a number of good games. and even now, the party games are fun enough and the online play is pretty decent. if people were given the opportunity to give it a chance, i feel they would really "see that it is fun", as miyamoto hopes.
