Games The Wii U isn't doing well. "We're told by someone with access to the NPD's data that sales for January were 'well under' 100,000 units. By our estimates, sales were somewhere between 45,000 and 59,000 units for the month, which is lower than any of the three previous-generation home consoles sold in their worst months, with the possible exception of a recent performance by the original Wii." All that is old will be new again.

A Zelda game and price cut will solve the issue.


Yup, looks like people will need the Wii-U to play Mario and Zelda, along with the next Xbox or PS4 to play everything else. This is as it has been since the Super NES. Seems that every other day, I keep hearing about some third party game or graphics engine that won't be ported to Wii U, and the REAL next-gen systems haven't even been released yet.

Really wish Nintendo would save gamers the trouble and just start releasing titles on other consoles. They do okay in the handheld scene, but I wouldn't be surprised if Wii U was the last console they ever produce.
