That is a good comparison, actually. The only difference is that the Vita is more powerful than its competitors. But, yeah, the lack of games is killing both of them.

i think Nintendo dropped the price of the WII U already right?...

 

if yes.... then i guess the price cut didn't do much either... ?...  they have to do something about it....

 

 

this is just my opinion.. but it's like the Wii U is being left behind.. with people thinking that it's the last gen console or something?..   with the ps4 and box 1  coming with 2-3 weeks..

It is not the price or the generation for the people I know. It is always just the lack of compelling software. People do not care enough about New Super Mario Bros. U. They want Mario Kart and Smash Bros.

Re: The Nintendo Wii U continues to sell poorly

Oct 30, 2013

My brother and I were just talking about this last week. We were discussing how sad it was to see Nintendo continue to fall from grace.

Sadly, just as they did to Sega and Nintendo, surely it will even happen to Sony and Microsoft one day. 

 

I've yet to buy a Wii U, but I plan to once the price drops a little more. I sincerely hope to see Nintendo dust themselves off and really come out with something that competes with the PlayStation and Xbox brands, in the future.

 

Hell, I even hope to see Sega get back into the console market someday. Smiley Tongue

Though, I doubt that will ever happen...

Re: The Nintendo Wii U continues to sell poorly

It's because Nintendo didn't choose to compete with Sony, they didn't care about specs, they thought people were okay buying a New Super Mario Bros. every year with few graphical changes and a couple of extra perks, in my opinion they need make 3d version like Mario 64, and RPG versions of all of their popular i.e. Zelda and Metroid RPG, they also need a Pokemon Coliseum game like for the Wii U if they don't want to compete with Sony, they're committing suicide on purpose in my opinion just like Xbox is doing and I feel like they want to blame us for emulating all of their last gen console on PC for free which isn't the truth about the Wii U sales, it's their fault.

 

I'm okay if Xbox  and Microsoft go bankrupt and completely disappear from the gaming industries and maybe even from the history of humanity but I'm going to miss Nintendo if they go awayanyway I don't think gaming it's going to last foreverlet's enjoy it while we can.

I doubt Nintendo will die because of the Wii U. The 3DS is doing AMAZING sales-wise in all regions. And they mentioned having a huge bank account from the Wii

Not the same thing. Sega was put out of the console market completely, by that beast known as the PS1. (Such a bully! Smiley Tongue)

And the PS3 was expensive, sure, but they were always in the mix. It was either PS3 or Xbox 360, with a Wii on the side.

Even though the Nintendo Wii was selling more than either, it was a novelty. It was never even a threat to the "popularity" of the 360 and PS3.

 

What I meant in my first post, is that one day the PlayStation and the Xbox brands will cease to exist. [Anew contender(swill riselike the PlayStation and Xbox didand will knock them off their thronesAnd more than likely, this will cause Sony and/or Microsoft to even leave the console market completely. It is foolish to believe they will always be here, like Nintendo has all these years. And even though Nintendo is still here, they have taken a back seat to Sony and Microsoft's consoles.

I doubt they will too. I didn't say or imply that Nintendo was going to die. I meant they are just not the kings of video game consoles, like they were in the past.
