Re: Wii U launches 2 days before this game...

Sep 13, 2012
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.

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.

It's a new console. It's controller is a tablet, but that's about it.

I agree, Spork, about the theory that many will not be able to differentiate it from the Wii. Not completely changing the name may not have been a good marketing strategy. Then again, maybe the wanted the word Wii tacked on there for brand recognition.

I got an invite to that Wii-U experience, so yeah, I've already played the U a bit. I can say that before going, I was confused about what the Wii-U really was. It uses the wiimotes as well, so I didn't know if just the tablet was new, and it connected to a standard Wii, or what. I was pretty confused.

I enjoyed some of what I played, but I didn't find that any of it "revolutionized" the way the Wii did. I think they will come up with some great ideas, Nintendo is pretty creative. Just don't know if it will sell like they are hoping. I'll be really surprised if it pushes even half of what the Wii pushed for the 1st year.
