Could we be seeing the end of the Wii U as soon as the end of this year?

Good. Wii U was literally Nintendo not listening to anything their fans were saying and just going full steam ahead on another console no one wanted a sequel to. For reference, the numbers:

 

3DS: 58.8m

Vita: 13.6m

Wii U: 12.8m

PS4: 38.8m

Xbox one: 20.4m

According to vgchartz

 

Last gen for comparison:

DS: 153.8m

PSP: 80.7M

Wii: 101.0m

PS3: 86.4m

Xbox 360: 85.4 M

 

Not to mention that Nintendo are making a loss with each console sold so it isn't surprising they're going to cut and run to the next console. I only hope it's more sensible.

The unfortunate part of that is Nintendo wasn't really listening to their fans last gen. They just had a bunch of newcomers to their system that bought what they put it. I mean, no one asked for Wii Fit or Wii Sports. But that's what we got and they were the top selling games on the Wii.

 

This gen was just Nintendo trying to replicate that success. They are probably over it now and want to appeal to their fans. I'm not too worried.

We'll see, they haven't really been appealing to their fans with some of their recent releases...

 

But all this may be moot as Nintendo has said that ceasing production was just a rumour. So take that how you will.

 I wonder if I can still post here... let's see

 

Edit: Yes I can. I mean Hi Slasher.

Hey. I have a question for you all. Does anyone still play the Wii or Wii-U? x)

 

Edit: Why does it say "Keatos is the one who started it but has Sakura's name instead?

The archiving process we had enabled before likely messed up old threads like this one and are missing posts. If you want to continue a discussion on this topic, I'd recommend creating a new thread for it.
