Nintendo wants to launch Wii U when it is completely ready. Nintendo admitted to past mistakes with the Nintendo 3DS’ launch and wants to do everything they can to avoid the same troubles. Nintendo said the eShop was not ready for the 3DS at launch and therefore was not available for the handheld-console for months after its initial release. Nintendo plans to avoid this mistake by making sure Wii U’s digital store will be available on the upcoming console’s release date.
Epic win for Nintendo!
Can’t wait for the Online Shop for the Wii U – I wonder if there will be virtual games and WiiWare games right off the bat?
It’s time like these that I wish for an edit button…
They will most likely announce several titles at the Tokyo Game show, as with the release date and launch price (& bundles C:)
I’d like to see N64 games,
And some GameCube games as well.
Well you’re supposed to be able to transfer the ones you have on your wii!
i dont care that! i just want to see the specs! im at the point of get a ps3 beacuse of the Wii U, need to know if it will support the unreal engine 4 or not!
you are an idiot buying a console based solely just graphics… get a pc for that
ps3 will DEF NOT RUN UNREAL 4 smh
it will its next generation and they confirmed it.
So let me guess… next Playstation… SEVEN HUNDRED AND NINETY NINE U.S. DOLLARS!!
hi there why bother with ps3 or wii u get a ps4 in 2014 it suports 4 sony tablets a 600,000,000 terabyte halographic disk 100 gb solid state drive ps4 will be faster then ps3
I still wouldn’t call the 3DS eShop ready, tbh.
lol fair enough, there are some ok things on there but not really, I barely use it, I have only downloaded like 2 games from it, then plus the 20 ambassador games, so I guess ur right
YeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaAAAAAAAAAAAAAA! Very excited for the launch of this epic console!
yeahs crew the haters. I want 4 games which is far from enough for a launched new console.
I know, right!?! People want like every single nintendo first party franchise right off the bat. Then there would be nothing to look forward to. I think what they’re offering now is great.
Yes! It’s the universal name, like it should be! Point for Nintendo.
That’s good. Looking forward to the Wii U. :)

Take all the time you need and get it right, Nintendo. Leave luck to heaven.
Er. I took that for granted.
Guess what everyone, there will be a Wii U Gamepad packed with every console. Surprise, surprise!
Well, at least they are learning from some of their mistakes.
I think they should consider the price of the games, there’s a big difference between a game on the apple store and the e-shop. I now there’s a big difference and the market is somehow different but at the time to buy the price has a big impact. Better to sell a lot at low price than the other way as happened with angry birds.
Well I just hope this doesn’t delay the console till 2013 but I really doubt it will.

there better be gamecube games on the ushop in hd remastered or else.
Well, I don’t blame them. I mean, when Wii was released, it had lots of features for the time. Plus, the Wii Shop Channel was readily available, too.
