              1. Premature ejaculation is a serious problem for many like yourself. I’m sure there is some form of therapy that you could try.

    1. Nintendo Commander, as we both stated before, Capcom, the second greatest developers became what they are due to NES, SNES and so on. Monster Hunter 4 is heading west early 2014. The Wii U has a top 10 game in Japan.

        1. Why should I buy WW HD, exactly? The bloom in it is pretty disgusting, and the textures don’t look like they’ve changed at all.

      1. MH 4 will be end of the year in NA. Capcom said they were so pleased with the sales of MH3U in NA that they would speed up and cut development time on MH 4. We usually get a game 6 months after Japan in cases like this.

    1. Not really my friend…

      They are not even worthy for it…

      These Xboxes will be recycled and somehow be converted to a new type of ass cleaning procedures for our disposable waste…

  1. Oh man, Nintendo sure didn’t make the same mistake it did with 3DS… those WiiU sales are booming and look at the abundance of WiiU games coming out.

    1. whats ur point… what do u care if they made the same mistake twice, cause 3ds wasnt a mistake now best selling portable dedicated machine ever, out pacing ds by millions of units, people who adopted early got ambassador perks, and can gloat at people like u. if wii u does somethinglike this, how was it another mistake, maybe its the smarrest marketing campaign for gaming ever created, maybe thats why iwata hasnt been asked to tep down as ceo yet because hes a marketing genius.

      1. Oh please shut up, you act as if you know who I am. I am an early adopter of both the 3DS and WiiU and am not a big fanboy like you who is blinded from what is clearly a mistake. Nintendo even admitted to trying to learn from the 3DS’s failed launch and assured us that WiiU would be different but nope it didn’t happen.

        1. wtf dude, i never once comment anything acting like i know u, but now i will since u opened that door.
          ur dissapointed at nintendo cause u cant gloat about owning nintendo products, nintendo forced who to either become humble or bitter, and in ur case its bitter. u cant enjoy the system for what awesomeness it does offer but must troll about what it hasnt done for u. u must think iwata is a failure because he hasnt catored to ur personal need or desires for gamimg. that is not any ones problems but ur own. i am not blinded by fanboyism yet i admit Nintendo is my favorite gaming company but u claim that like u know me. i believe Nintendo clearly knows what they are doing and next year at this time we will see wii u sitting right beside 3ds, and ps4 as the top 3systems being sold.

            Clearly you were insinuating that I’m some sony or microsoft fanboy that whoever is in the ambassadors program can gloat to and don’t try to deny that. And now you’re doing it some more… not surprised by that. I’m not listing the reasons why the system is awesome because it would be irrelevant to the article for which this comment section is suppose to be discussing. The article shows the dipping sales of the WiiU hence my discussion about it. Troll? Don’t make me laugh.

    1. seriously right, it seems every month Nintendo sells about 160,000 units, over the course of this year alone theyll probably sell almost 2Million units. If not, more.
