Wow, this is just dumb.
Either Nintendo really wants to confuse consumers or a redesign of Wii U is coming
Well this is extremely disappointing seeing as I tend to only play a majority of Gamecubes titles instead of actual Wii titles and the majority of the Wii titles I would prefer the Gamecube controller.
Just another reason to make me care less for the Wii and Nintendo sadly...
@The_Nubster said:They're making appeals to the non-Wii audience. Why would anyone go out and buy a stripped-down Wii to replace their current, backwards-compatible one? They're not marketing to the Wii audience, they're marketing to a potential audience.@ryanwho said:Nintendo is making appeals to the Wii audience which you clearly aren't a part of. That makes you clueless. If you think the Wii is the failure, you're not part of their very large active audience and you can have an opinion I guess, just not one that matters.Nothing about this is stupid. Its a cheaper version with less parts. The people who still don't have a Wii don't give a fuck about the 5 Gamecube games worth playing. Using your fucking head, clueless "real gamers".And the people who still don't have a Wii don't care about the Wii, either. By the way, no one claimed to be a "real gamer", and you're not more of one for swearing.
@CandleJakk said:Man I haven't played a Wii game on my Wii in so long. I recently played through Majora's Mask. More engrossing than any Wii game I've ever played.
That sucks, since all the best Wii games are actually GameCube games.
This presents a very sad image. Poor, poor Wii. I'm happy to have a version with Gamecube support. I felt like the Gamecube era didn't last as long as it could have, and the controllers were perfect. They're really the only way to play Brawl. :)
this smaller, sleeker, slightly neutered Wii bundle
well lets consider the game market gamecube had , there would not be much people affected in any way , that thing only sold 26 million world wide , same for xbox 28 million , so with that said not much of a loss compared to ps3 losing bc with ps2 games, some 100 million ps2 users would have bought a slim ps3 if they had bc still , if not that at least close to that,
but then again this gen lacked somthing , and i couldnt finger that exact thing,
-maybe to many fpses was the problem not many good rpgs like ds has, or psp , seams handhelds sold way more this gen besides the wii ,
the fact is , gamecube did not have that big of market share plus im sure everyone in europe or close , has a wii with bc and or can find a gc or used wii cheap any way, this is just for people , who dont really need the gc stuff
and this is europe only people , not world wide that 26 million comes from world wide results,
the market in europe is much smaller then us so it had to have alot less gc sold ,
i cant blame nintendo for doing this , -after all gc seamed dead any way , there were only a few good exclusives i know on that thing mostly nintendo games , with the exception of dc ports and games like giest and timesplitters , had gc had more 3rd party support this would be a different story ,
hope wii u reatins bc all the way through because wii has hundreds of games i wanna get , that i have not yet gotten ,
most of them being cheap racing games /or sequals to games i own already
but i know noa they wont screw the wii u up , im getting that day one , putting my red 25th anniversery mario wii , and black wii in the box just for show
if the vc isnt on wii u then thats what ill use wii for but ya , ill put one away most likely the red one as it will be worth more
