    As much as I agree with you guys, I still love my Wii U system. Even with all the bullshit you have to deal with.

    mixed the 3DS games among the regular DS games.
    Keep in mind that walmart is probably the largest video game retailer in the US.
    What does that have to do with the price of tea in China? The Wii U is going on its forth year in the market so comparing how it is currently being handled with the 3DS (during its first year) is not germane. Forty two months on the market should make for a rather extensive library.

    This is how it looked in February:

    Just add in a bunch of unsold Wii crap while removing some of those Wii U games and you'll know what it looks like today. Talk about embarrassing.

    Just sayin.
    When it looked like the 3DS was going to flop, they just crammed all of that stuff into the DS shelf.
    It could be worse, as much as I like the Vita, there are shops whos Vita section hasn't changed since release.

    I'm a recent Wii U owner, and I agree, especially because I skipped Wii and so now I get to go back and play that system's greatest hits upscaled over HDMI.

    But yeah, Nintendo, finally get things right. It's really right there in your grasp.

    I think it'll become more like the N64. A few great games but not enough to keep you happy by itself. The Saturn had a good number of games, especially in Japan. Unfortunately most weren't very good.

    the Wii U doesn't upscale Wii games. vWii runs at 480p just liek the original Wii did.

    Nintendo got its act in gear with the 3DS. The same will never be said for how it handled the Wii U as it is close to hitting rock bottom. Things can't get much worse for this console or more importantly, those who invested in such a joke. I feel conned. Reggie talked out his arse when hyping this console a few E3's ago because it never blossomed into what he claimed it would.

    I dont know what it is with the Wii U and the 3DS, but I just keep coming back to them; especially the 3DS. Also, don't know how the heck I was turned, but I found myself even picking up some Amiibos. But all of this is recent to me (picked up my current gen Nintendo hardware not one month ago).

    All I can say is: Nintendo better keep physical media with the NX.

    I love these threads. How gullible can some people get?

    I usually stop reading when people cite GAF as resource for any technical discussion.

    The current trend in console hardware is to release low end AMD APUs with bottlenecks on the shared memory. AMD's recent earnings calls have given people reason to expect it from the NX. GAF rumors are just a solid enough reason to take a shit on Nintendo without being technical.

    I really don't care about raw power and graphics.
    As long as the game are good and fun (And hell, Nintendo does that pretty well), I'll stick with them.
    I have lots of fun with Mario Kart and Splatoon. I don't say that Dark Souls 3 is bad or that FIFA isn't fun to play with friends (most of the times it isn't, haha) but I prefer the childish stuff. It's just plain fun.
    SEGA, mais forte que tu!

    The problem is that there was only ever a single run of the silicon and I don't think Nintendo will be ordering any more. So the price will most likely stay high until well after support for the hardware has ceased, as there's no room for cost reduction. That means the prices stay the same for the retailers, and given the already anorexic profit margins, they won't be able to do much in reaching the price they can offer.
