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.

I know this has nothing at all to do with the gaming side
or the usability, BUT:

It (the Wii U GamePad controller) looks like a Fisher Price toy! ..or at best an early-learning V-Tech type kiddies computer..!!

That really doesn't help matters. The poooor screen, visually, plus the poor touchscreen doesn't help neither.

(sorry if that's already commented upon - no time for reading lots of fora today - packing for new job)
