Selling 3.45 million when your target is 4 million is "badly missing"?  I agree it's not good, but selling 86% of your target doesn't seem terrible, just poor.

Tommy Moo: Naming the console Wii U was a huge mistake. It gives the impression that it's just an upgrade for the Wii, instead of a legitimate entry in the next console generation. It shines a spotlight on the fact that the processor is underpowered compared to the PS4 and Durango/720. The phonetics of it is also just incredibly horrid. You can't say "Wii U" without torturing the front of your mouth and sounding embarrassing and silly.


Its the sounds emergency vehicles make.

wiiiiiiiiuuu wiiiiiiuuu wiiiiiuuuuu

Honestly, their biggest mistake was trying to ride the "Best XMas toy" hype past the two(!) xmas' that it worked for them.  Most hot xmas toys only get one year hype.

No one wants a beannie baby anymore, and no one wants a "motion control" WiiU.  Thats the old toy.

Nintendo hasn't been cool since the sega genesis came out...

Genesis ha more "edge"
3d0 beat everybody to 32 bit
Playstation took that ball an ran with it
Xbox 360 kicks serious ass when I doesnt die a fiery death
Ps3 has bluray.

In all that time, the only cool thing Nintendo has done is a wiggle stick.
