A lot has been said of Nintendo’s Wii U console and now it’s my turn to put in my Two Pence. The Wii U is the follow-up to the highly successful Nintendo Wii console. The Wii was the highest-selling console of the last generation but the Wii U has been anything but a success thus far.
Sales have not met Nintendo’s expectations to the point where executives have had to take major pay cuts, seemingly every week a major third-party developer voices its reluctance to support the console and, perhaps most importantly, the Wii U is on the verge of being overtaken by both the PS4 and Xbox One. Put simply the Wii U is not in good shape.
