Will Nintendo’s Wii U Be Able To Compete With Ps4 And Xbox 720?

When PS2 and Xbox both smashed Gamecube, Nintendo responded with Wii. An innovative, motion-control console, that smashed PS3 and Xbox 360 in terms of sales. When PS3 and Xbox 360 both unveiled motion-based peripherals, Nintendo unveiled Wii U. A console with only slightly improved graphics over PS3, and a controller that doubles as a handheld console. They released it a year before PS4 in an attempt to gain an early advantage. But I cannot help but notice how all the Wii U consoles are just collecting dust at every store in my area. They didn’t even sell out for the holiday season. Is the momentum Nintendo built up with Wii about to be stopped in it’s tracks by another unsuccessful console in Wii U?

    Not likely.

    When has Nintendo ever been able to compete with Microsoft and Sony? Never.
    They don’t WANT to compete, thats the thing. They only care about the customers they have, they don’t do a damn thing to attract more people. Their attempts have always failed.

    I think the fun factor will be more in the Wii u once it comes down. It will have exclusives and not everyone cares about graphics. Zelda fans, mario fans & pokemon fans will pick the Wii u and the Japanese fan base is huge for all of the above lol

    The Wii U has already flopped in terms of sales, Ubisoft says, however, sales will rise when more AAA games come out.
    Granted, The PS Vita has flopped in sales as well, as the 3DS is dominating the handheld market.
    Another thing that will hurt Nintendo(Not with all of its user, though) is that the Wii U is Nintendo’s first console that is on par hardware wise with the PS3 and Xbox 360, so even though the Wii U is 8th gen, it will be way behind in hardware compared to the PS4 and the Next Gen Xbox.
    I say not all of it’s users because Nintendo has a market. No one ever says they want Mario with ‘Next Gen, realistic graphics’ in ‘1080p’. Same thing with games like Zelda and the others. But it will hurt Nintendo with gamers who want to not just play Mario, but play more “hardcore” titles, ones that will need better hardware and where graphics will matter.
    I don’t think this will hurt Nintendo too badly, though. They are not stupid at all, they’ve found their niche and they now how to keep it satisfied. But personally, I would have waited to release the Wii U for several reasons, but granted, I am not a CEO or even a game developer.
