All the Nintendrones will buy a Wii-U day one, we already know that. Question is, will all the soccer Mom's go buy it like they did the Wii?
The fate of the U could very well rest with suburban minivan soccer Mom's. Seriously. Gonna be interesting to see how this plays out. Will they say **bleep** it my kid has a Wii, that's enough? Or will the plunk down the cash?
A lot of the people who bought the Wii, were old people, looking for things like Wii-fit, or to have when their grandkids come over. They won't know the difference between the Wii and the Wii-u. A lot of parents won't know either, it was a bad move to call it the Wii-u, as it doesn't seperate it from the Wii enough. the 'u' could just be referring to the controller for all they know.
After this year's E3, I doubt anyone will buy the WiiU day 1 anyway...
They announced a ton of stuff today about it. Yes, Their E3 conference did not help them, but they really got the information out there now.
Wii u wil fail CONSUMER REPORTS state 65% of peopel who bought a will will not buy the wii u 75% of current gammers dont want a wii u , and 25% of the nintendo comunity is iffy about it.. If nintendo just lost its Cassual fan base there DEAD ... 5% of the wii's owners are "gamers" and every gammer i know who owns one hasent touvhed it since they got a ps3 or 360..
