Ridiculous. How would anyone hate a company so much that they would go as far as threaten executives..? Also, I doubt it was a PC fan.
It must've been an Xbox fanboy. Kill him and the whole race of Xbox fans >:O

I kinda hated the LMDM bundle and the color simple because it was just a 3DS and not an XL ;~;
HOWEVER, we finally have confirmation that they're selling a 3DS XL bundle for Dream Team
IT LOOKS SO CLEAN AND AMAZING.

Soo it's now been confirmed that both the PS4 AND the Xbox One have already sold more in 4 days than the Wii U has done in a year..

I'm honestly not surprised. The UK and general northern Europe is the most anti-Nintendo and Sony/Microsoft-friendly (especially Sony) place you will find in the world. Like 5% of gamers in northern Europe are Nintendo fans, 60% are Playstation fans and 35% are Xbox fans.

Also Knack (that got bad-mediocre reviews by critics, INCLUDING the PS-fanboy critics on a Norwegian Nintendo website.) outsold SM3DW (which has received critical acclaim and great reviews from every site, including the Norwegian anti-Nintendo one that normally rates most Nintendo games low).

Soooo yeah this is to be expected. I'll probably get a PS4 as soon as possible because if I don't own one by the end of the year I'll probably lose out on many friends and what's left of my social life (this is actually the sad truth. There was a reason why I got the PS3, although I don't regret my purchase right now because of BL2).

...

Also it's weird how people are so desperate to get a PS4/Xbox One now that over 50% of all games there are just games that already exist on the PS3/360/Wii U. There's literally no change between the PS4 and PS3 version of CoD Ghosts besides updated graphics...

But still this is only in the UK and until they both outsell Wii U in the US and Japan there's not much to worry.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Anyway the 3DS still was the bestselling console everywhere in the world before the PS4/Xbox One and it still outsells the Vita by over 10-20 times, so Nintendo's handheld domination won't fade anytime soon (IPads are a more dangerous threat to the 3DS than the Vita) :P

I'm not still rooting for Nintendo at this point. I think Nintendo made their mistakes and needs to shape up. I hope this is a lesson for Nintendo.

To be honest, I really don't care how much Nintendo has sold compared to Microsoft or Sony. I mean, knowing that the Wii U has sold way less than the other consoles doesn't prevent me from enjoying playing Super Mario 3D World, or Pikmin 3.

But if Nintendo keeps doing crappy it's gonna go out of business and you won't have any games to enjoy playing. :P

That's where you're wrong. Even if the Wii U fails and is dicontinued the 3DS is still at large and Nintendo may even make another better home console.

And even if Nintendo quit being a console developer altogether that still doesn't mean their games and franchises would die. I'm sure that both Sony and Microsoft would be more than happy to allow Nintendo to publish games for Playstation/Xbox (this is of course the worst case scenario and will most likely and hopefully never happen).

Something REALLY fucked up has to happen for Nintendo to abandon literally everything they've got :P

I think Nintendo's problem right now is that the casual market doesn't feel that they need to upgrade. My parents have a wii, and they don't want to. The hardcore audience is the one that generally wants the newer system, and Nintendo really needs to appeal more to them. Wii Fit U is not a good example of this.

Exactly. I agree. But you can appeal to a casual audience and still sell them the new console. Nintendo is just doing it wrong. Not enough good marketing. The ads by Nintendo are total shit, the new console does now offer much more than the old one, and the games are still not out yet.

Apart from that, you can see how bad Nintendo is by seeing that xbox one, the SUPER critisized console no one was gonna buy, sold the same amount of consoles in one week as wii u sold in its entire lifetime. Now THAT is funny.

Really all I have to say to you guys. I really don't care about the Xbox One or the PS4 simply because I won't buy them and don't give a damn shit about either. A Nintendo hacking forum is for discussion about how Nintendo can keep the Wii U above water, not some convoluted market analysis.

Yes, we're Nintendo fans. Officially a minority in the consumer base.

DEAL WITH IT. :3

The marketing for the console is bad, not really the console itself. I really dont give a shit about the other consoles, fuck'em, in my opinion, id have all consoles abolished. #pcmasterrace.

What I meant by that is that the consumer base has changed so much that games glorifying violence have risen to take the place of games based on happiness, objectivism, and optimism. I don't want to shoot people. I want to jump on turtles and anthropomorphic mushrooms.

Not a lot of people want that anymore. Which is why Wii U is doing badly.

Can you not use your common sense and realize I was talking about consoles? I have no problem with the 3DS, I think it's great.

Also apparently Super Mario 3D World sales are struggling D:

Some people think this is a bad post, but it's fucking true

Nintendo did do wrong with the Wii U, it's what you call a failure at it's current state. Stop being a fanboy and deal with it. If I were that supportive of Nintendo, i'd be very sad right now rather than saying they are doing everything right.

Hold on, stahp all the hate and flaming and disagreeing, let's see what some real people have to say about the last year of Wii U. I actually see a lot of mixed results.

Look at what this kotaku guy said. He's totally right. (he repeats some stuff, sounds like a poem, a really good rhyme :3)
This wasn’t something new, this was something a little… desperate. I was something a little… desperate. I was surprised I wasn’t surprised. I had become surprised I wasn’t surprised. I had become so accustomed to Nintendo redefining so accustomed to Nintendo redefining what I expect from video games, to what I expect from video games, to changing how I interact with games, that changing how I interact with games, that being shown a console that wasn’t being shown a console that wasn’t revolutionary was a little bit of a shock.

One year later I’m still not sure how I feel. One year later I’m still not sure how I feel. In terms of games, I firmly believe the Wii In terms of games, I firmly believe the Wii U has become a console of note. Of the U has become a console of note. Of the three next generation consoles it has the three next generation consoles it has the most games worth playing – but it’s had a most games worth playing – but it’s had a 12 month head start. Of course it has 12 month head start. Of course it has more games worth playing. I remain more games worth playing. I remain worried about the Wii U. I worry for its worried about the Wii U. I worry for its longevity.
