People are going to feel cheated when they buy a game that says Wii on the box but doesn't work in their Wii. I can't see this stupid Wii u name being a good thing in the long run.


I agree. I even wonder now how many non-(sigh)-hardcore gamers buy 3DS games only to find out that don't work in their DS?

Every time I buy a 3DS game, the clerk asks me if I know it won't work on an original DS. He's apparently heard countless sob stories about people who do this.

A few weeks ago I was waiting somewhere and I saw a cnn program with kristie lu stout.
And it showed a Genesis model 1. What was that about? It was cool to see, Did anyone see what that was about?

I'm going to be honest, I don't follow modern games too much and when I first heard of the Wii U and saw the controller I thought it was just an add on for the Wii too :oops: .

Not to add fuel to the fire, but a bunch of my friends bought the PS3 because "It was a great Blu-Ray player that also plays games". It's about marketing "adaptation and multitasking".

The sole intent of a console is to sell games; without a doubt. But with that comes competition and "My console can do this!", so wi-fi, net browsing, movie watching, netflix, etc., are now all a part of the equation.

When you break it down to brass tacks, every new console is an entertainment HUB, not only a game system.

This all seems to be an argument over semantics. :?
