The Wii U does not mean the death of the Wii

Postby flyfletch » 25 Sep 2012, 07:12

Marketing of the PS3 phenomenal?? I wouldnt go that far, PS2 at the time without a doubt was well marketed. The PS3 is badly marketed, i cant remember the last time i saw a PS3 advert.
Go ahead and add me on PS3, 360 & Wii U, please note! Weirdo's will be blocked immediately :)

He's right: the lack of software meant the death of the Wii. Anyway, haven't we already had this article? Do we need an Ozzie version as well?

Ain't got no time for no Wii U maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaan.

I very much doubt they'll be able to shift new Wii hardware after the Wii U comes out. Its already possible to buy a Wii console from CEX for £30. That price will drop even more once the Wii U is released.

I was thinking the same. I also cant see why any late adopters would consider it either TBH.

Oh I can see that. Times being what they are, people forget that there were some gems out for the console (don't make me do a list: there's a partial one three posts up if you're interested), and you'd probably be able to pick up the console and a dozen or so utter beauties for cheap now. Then again, the backwards-compatible WiiU is on its way, but not everyone will want to pick it up (at least not for launch price), and if you get a Wii you can trawl eBay for GC beauties too.

But that wasn't what I was thinking about. I've got most of these gems I'm talking about, and I very much doubt there's anything on its way that'll interest me regarding the Wii. And because I'm a selfish bastard, that was my point. :mrgreen:

What a stupid thing to come out with, the Wii is finished, it was finished years ago when games stopped being released for it.
used to own - NES, Atari ST, Amiga 500, Mega Drive, SNK Neo Geo, SNES, Saturn, N64, PS2, GameCube, Alienware Aurora.
currently own - PS1, Xbox, Xbox360 + Kinect, Wii, PS3 + MOVE, 3DS, Games PC, Wii U.

Well, I unboxed one and fired it up for the first time Saturday Does that count? :)

I'd planned to buy one years ago, but poverty interfered. Even now I can scrounge up $150 a lot easier than I could $350; and $20 games are a better deal than $60 games. Plus, the children are old enough to enjoy it now.

And yes, my last console really was an Atari 2600. My last game before this year was Pitfall.
