    I almost wet myself when I saw that picture - but a quick google doesn't show anything up. I thought I missed something HUGE in the last Nintendo Direct, but appears that its just a mock up photo.

    Shame

    I don't know. That's a little bit short sighted tbh - if anything, the last couple of months have been when the Wii U has picked up. Of course the 2 newer consoles have more potential going forward, however, I don't really think theres anything that amazing available for this Christmas yet. If anything, Super Mario World 3D is probably the best game to pick up this festive period. Not to turn this into one of those threads, just seems a little bit of a dismissive statement.

    Windwaker HD is supposed to have kicked up a lot of sales. I expect Mario Kart 8 will have the consoles flying off the shelves.

    Wii U is £250 including new Mario game - that's over £100 cheaper than PS4, nearly £200 cheaper than Xbox one.

    Very few games on PS4 and Xbox one are geared towards smaller children.

    With these few points, I would like to think the Wii U may pick up in sales.

    Re: News - Wii U "just getting started," says Sony PlayStation exec

    Even with the new Mario game, there's nothing compelling me to buy the Wii U.

    To give that some context, I've owned every Nintendo home console since the SNES. I'm a massive Mario fan and very much enjoyed the few good first-party games on the Wii, along with a small number of third-party ones.

    Even if there were a new Smash Bros available now, I still wouldn't go for the Wii U, even though I loved the GC and Wii versions.

    Why?

    It's just iterations of the same old, same old.

    There's nothing particularly gripping about the Wii U. It's underpowered (again) with an account system that still doesn't do what it needs to.

    As for Mario Kart, I was a fan up until (and including) Double Dash, but the Wii version did nothing for me particularly, especially with the change to sliding. The Wii U version looks equally lacklustre.

    Unfortunately I'm just not Nintendo's demographic any longer. That's the only logical reason I can think of for them not wanting to ever properly pursue the adult market alongside the younger market.

    As for Nintendo sitting on Starfox and F-Zero, not to mention some major other key franchises, I have no logical theory other than madness. Some new first-party material wouldn't go amiss either.

    It's days like this that I seriously wish Nintendo would go third-party. And yes, I'm quite serious. It might make them focus on games more whilst leaving the hardware to others.

    I actually quite like that purple unit. If it is a real unit (I haven't heard of a Majora's Mask remake for the Wii U) I kinda wished I'd held off getting my pro unit last month (only kind of though, as I'm really enjoying both Mario Bros and Rayman Legends)
