So, I was thinking for sometime about the WiiU and how it's not doing so hot on it's launch, how Nintendo's marketing has been below average, abysmal menu speeds and all that.
Suddenly, I came to a realization regarding the WiiU and how it compares to it's predecessor.
I have no idea what a WiiU looks like. Literally. If you asked me I would not be able to describe it to save my life. Once I finish writing this I'll go look for it on google to satiate my curiosity but before that...
At first I tought maybe my memory was shot since I had even seen the 'unboxing' the Giant Bomb boys did but, when I tried recalling it in my mind all that it had going for it was 'a simple black square'. That's 90% of all hardware being created, phones, etc.
Meanwhile, on the past, everybody knew what a Wii looked like, not only the Wii but it's controller too, people were making jokes about it, sure, but that ended up making sure that it's design ended up burned in our minds. That along the Wii's 'slanted square' and the blue shining drive.
Now if we get that and add the fact that the huge sales of the Wii were due to it's 'hype' you can see that this spells huge trouble for the WiiU
So, that's it, I wanted to vent my ideas somewhere and discuss how silly it was when nintendo did stuff such as hiding the WiiU from our eyes on E3 and how it looks like it all will come crashing down on them, thanks if you've read this far! :D
