What are the "high caliber" games you are referring too?

- 32GB hard drive in 2013. 5GB system update at launch + future updates + game updates. You will need an external hard drive. FAIL

- You cannot re-download your old WiiWare games straight onto your brand new Wii U, even if they are linked to your Club Nintendo account. You must transfer via USB to make them playable on your Wii U. So do not sell your old Wii if you want to re-download them. FAIL

- Non-existent marketing toward adult gamers. FAIL

- No system-wide achievements. Games may have achievements but there will be no total accumulation instead you can post your accomplishments on Miiverse... Fail?

- MiiVerse. Upcoming Video Game Social Networking. Posts will take up to 30 minutes to actually be posted after being processed by a human resource team paid by Nintendo. FAIL LOLOL "WE MUST REMOVE THEM DICK DRAWINGZ"



And about the Wii, it actually had a LOT of great exclusive games, that wasn't the problem. The problem was the hardware, online service, shitty WiiMote, achievements, third party games being inferior to 360/PS3.



Edit: Also Sony has a cross buy feature so you can buy a game once on PS/Vita and it's playable on each. Nintendo has no clue about this feature or its usefulness. FAIL

Now, go ahead. Tell me she died of cancer. Tell me she was in a car crash. Tell me she can only move her fucking eyelids. Yeah, why don't you tell me some sentimental bullshit that will make me 'ashamed' of what I just said.

You pricks are all the same, and if we met in real life I'd bury my boot up your ass. I get more sex than you, little man. So pogo on that you stupid cunt.

Sony also have regular updates that ages if you don't have Playstation Plus. Sony also removed backwards compatibility so they could sell older games on PSN. At least you can actually get old downloads on it. Wouldn't surprise me in age where they're discussing outing pre-owned gaming.

You can play games on the controller with the touch screen. That's was one of the 'big things'. I also doubt the 3DS could handle a game such as Mass Effect 3 so that's a pretty moot point.

Achievements? Video Game Social Networking? Pretty sad tbh. Couldn't care less about those things.

I own a PS3 and don't plan on getting a WiiU for a while but jesus..

The only thing I agree with you on is marketing and there's a lack of marketing as a whole (over here anyway). This post = FAIL.

Why don't we wait til at least a year, when some of these big games are actually out (Zelda HD, WWHD, Mario HD, SSB etc) before we label the console a failure. People seem to forget most launches are lackluster in regards to big games. When I got my PS3 it came with Fifa and COD. They were pretty much the best games at that point.

I got one for Christmas and it does have a few good games, but the sluggish rate new games are coming out for it is really hurting the system. New Super Mario Bros U, Sonic Transformed, Scribblenauts and Ninja Gaiden 3 are all good titles. The rest don't seem that interesting. It's sad because the system does have some very nice graphics and what games I've played so far are fun.

I'm hoping spring means a shit load of new titles coming out for it besides Bayonetta 2.

Why are people making a big deal about the hard drive? If you are a teen or pre-teen, chances are 32GB will last you awhile. If you are older, chances are you have either an Xbox or PS3 with at least 120 GB to play all the multi-platform games. Even if you do not have another console a 1TB hard drive can be picked up for around $50
