Nintendo Has Failed To Create Anticipation Or Confidence In Wii U

Games Industry has assembled a number of PR representatives to discover whether Nintendo’s Wii U event on September 13th will be overshadowed by Apple’s event on September 12th. A number of the representatives seem to feel that Nintendo has failed thus far to spark enough excitement and anticipation for the console. Here’s what one PR veteran thought:

“My main thought is that Nintendo has a bigger PR problem than the date of its press conference. The biggest issue Nintendo has is the lack of anticipation or confidence. They have not created enough excitement and confidence among both consumers and developers, nor has their quiet given people the sense that a delightful surprise awaits. There seems to be a cloud hanging above them of ‘concern.’ They did not do a great job after E3 of bridging toward the fall. If they want this press conference to succeed, making people believe that there will be a surprise or proof of a big flagship title may help. Highlighting their focus on third party or any other innovations would also help.”

“It seems that Nintendo does not think of Apple as a true competitor, and they seem to be relying on the fact that their intense focus and disregard of the rest of the market will prevail again. It’s interesting Nintendo is doing their press event in New York; that feels like a statement of appealing to the mainstream press, the mass market (as opposed to Silicon Valley or the game developers). But Apple is already mainstream and doesn’t really need that, of course. It’s possible Nintendo believes reporters who cover interactive, games and tech will simply cover both events, and since they don’t seem to really think they are in the same business as Apple, they may be surprised.”

“From here on out they need to really close the gap, make a statement and gain consumer confidence for the retail launch.”

    1. this news is BS . this is how nintendo go about their business. they always do this. they did this with the wii , gamecube , DS , GBA , 3DS.

      I think nintendo is going to really well with the wiiu .

      I wouldn’t listen to this article. lets judge the sale’s after 1 year.

      if it’s doing like the vita after 1 year , then worry . but it won’t. it will do well

    2. Just because you’re confident doesn’t mean the rest of the world is. As Nintendo fans, we’re a small percentage of people that really, truly want Wii U. And frankly, Nintendo isn’t focusing on us. They’re focusing on people on the fence about the Wii U, and other people who haven’t even heard about it, which they according to this guy, they’re not doing a job dealing with them. Walking around in NYC, I still don’t hear anyone talk or mention the Wii U at all.

    3. “Who cares?”

      ^ My exact feeling towards this news.

      Let’s get something straight here, people. Nintendo is, and has always been, a toy company. They will NEVER (and I mean NEVER) become a company that follows suit of what everyone else is doing because they believe in the notion of “Creating Something Unique.” The day they can no longer proceed in doing so is the day that Nintendo, as a company, ceases to exist. Satoru Iwata himself has stated that, while the smartphone industry is surely taking off, there will always be a demand for a true gaming experience whether at home or on the go. Games that are less than $2 and only playable on a touch screen (where most of your vision is obscured by your own fingers) is absurd when compared to the full-length, truly-dedicated portable systems and home consoles that Nintendo has become known for over the past three decades.

      When parents go to the store for holiday shopping, especially at an electronics retailer such as Best Buy, the first two sections they hit are the gaming and home theater before anywhere else. Why? Because that’s what kids ask for during the season–the next big thing that comes out.

      Of course, parents who judge by brand name aren’t going to get their kids something else for a Microsoft or Sony console because they know the Nintendo brand is geared more towards the family. Like it or not, that is what Nintendo excels at more than anyone else–being able to have such a wide and diverse fanbase. From Nintendo enthusiasts and long-time fans, to the most casual of parents who don’t know jack about gaming, to even 2-years-olds, almost everyone recognizes Nintendo’s most distinguishable featurettes. Simply put, Mario (which is going to be available at launch), Pokemon (which everyone knows will come sooner or later), and Miis (ever since their popularization on the Wii).

      In other words, if the Wii U is priced at what people have been suggesting (with 3 bundles of $249, $299, and $349, respectively), then there should be absolutely no reason that any true Nintendo fan or gaming analyst is dismissive about the Wii U’s already approaching critical success. Nintendo has been doing everything right by having their last big title on the Wii being The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword since last year, and the first thing on parents’ minds this year will most definitely be “Is there something new that I can get my children for ?”

      The Wii U innovates gaming in almost every aspect. It is the most backwards compatible console we have ever had in the gaming industry on top of everything else already mentioned. Miiverse is so far shaping up to get its own place in the social networking sphere, and, dare I say, looks like one of the most ambitious social networking services we have ever seen before during our time. I wouldn’t be surprised to start seeing it integrated into as much services as Twitter or Facebook in the coming years. Then, we have the promise of the Nintendo eShop and Nintendo Network–with all of their services–AVAILABLE AT LAUNCH. Those three words are the most important of them all.

      Something the Nintendo 3DS lacked was the unavailability of system-selling software (which the Wii U has already corrected), lack of online services at launch (“You mean you can’t go on the Internet Browser or Nintendo eShop of your Nintendo 3DS until MONTHS after launch?” <- Can't tell you how much trade-ins must have occurred because of that.), the Wii U GamePad is a totally revolutionary concept with asymmetrical gameplay given to the fact that the bottom screen on the controller is no longer tied to the top display on the television (this is important as it distinguishes the console from the Wii, whereas the 3DS looks almost exactly identical to the Nintendo DS).

      However, nothing else is as important as this next point which everyone seems to forget. The Wii U is Nintendo's first 1080p HD console (the only one that is coming out soon as a matter of fact). In other words, all of Nintendo's franchises are about to receive one of the biggest facelifts seen in the history of gaming, going from GameCube-like graphics, to beautifully rendered HD locales. If that does not wet any Nintendo fan's appetites for more, then I don't know what will.

      Looking forward to hearing more about the Wii U this September 13th. I am actually considering even getting rid of my Nintendo 3DS XL that I just bought and waiting instead for the Wii U to come out (I have always been more of a home console fan of Nintendo's than a fan of their portables anyways). New Super Mario Bros. U, Pikmin 3, Rayman Legends, Nintendo Land, and ZombiU all look marvelous, and I can't believe that I want them all and they're all going to be available at or near launch! What else do I need to be pumped up for the Wii U's launch other than pricing and release date!? That's FIVE exclusives right out from the gate!

      Some people will never be satisfied no matter what you do for them…

  5. I think this person hit the nail on the head. I’m a Nintendo fan for life. In fact, unless you want to count a PC, Android, and an iPod Touch as gaming platforms, I’ve only ever owned Nintendo systems. The only game that has me really hyped (on the Nintendo side of things) is Pikmin 3. While New Super Mario Bros. U looks visually impressive (the details are absolutely beautiful), I couldn’t be less excited. We just got New Super Mario Bros. 2 not even a month ago. And I couldn’t care less about NintendoLand, which is essentially a mini game compilation. It was a huge misstep at E3 to not include games that were outside of the launch window. It doesn’t create any buzz for the future, and doesn’t give anyone any incentive to own a Wii U beyond the launch window. Keeping quiet is just biting them in the ass. As of this writing (and this may all change), I’m not planning, to pick up the Wii U at launch. I’d rather wait down the road and see the offerings a year from now. Nintendo, please prove me wrong. Please make me want to own the console. This is your last chance to knock it out of the park. I want to see you succeed.

      I agree with you, my Hispanic friend. Nintendo manages to do something new that we would never think about before they announce it, and Apple relies in apps and payable content for indie games. Even though Nintendo is also bringing indie developers to their forthcoming console, it’s the WIi U exclusive games and features that’ll guarantee it’s success. It’s true that the market of phone games is increasing, but they’ll never be able to offer the same experience as a true gaming console does, specially if it’s Nintendo we’re talking about!

    1. Agreed…the fact is that, while the more serious players like us may or may not be that interested in NSMBU, the game will move systems, which will mean more third-party bandwagon jumping, which is only good news for us as players and fans. While I may get NSMBU to have as a fun multiplayer game(5 players is sweet), it is hardly at the top of my list. Darksiders 2, ZombiU, AC3, Scribblenauts: Unlimited, Project P-100, and TTT2 all have my attention right now, with a few other honorable mentions. As of right now, my wallet will be crying straight through February(when I pick up Aliens: Colonial Marines) so no biggie that they didn’t launch a huge Mario game right at launch.

      As a matter of fact, I prefer this. It would be the first time a Nintendo console has launched in umpteen years that I have been more interested in third-party titles than Nintendo titles. That has to bode well for the future, because I ultimately know I will be interested in Nintendo titles, but, if we are hyped for other companies, then maybe they will be hyped to make us more games and steal more money from us. One can hope.

    1. And yes, we do need a big title for launch, but the 360 and ps3 launch games werent exactly good, it still has the best launch line up ive ever see.
      And yes, we do need to see Retro’s game, they’ve had long enough to not even tease it.

      But we have to remember, Nintendo is still a business, and unfortunatly, yet unsurpisingly, its 2 competitors are a little cheeky and like to copy their ideas. I mean it to Microsoft less than a year to react to the WiiU and announce SmartGlass, Nintendo pretty much have to drag out the bigger reveals so Microsoft akd Sony cant react, or delay their own products. Its kind of disgusting really.

        Ok, anyone whos played Assassin Creed know how fucking annoyin it is to pause the game, go to the map, search around the map, then bring it down, ALL. THE. TIME.

        In Mass Effect 3 amd Darksiders 2, you can only assign a few powers. Oh look, now i can assign pretty much all of them.

        Oh i just picked up a weapon in Darksiders 2. Now i have pause the game, go on the weapon menu, go to the scythe sub menu, compare the stats. Oh, its worse than my current weapon. Well no matter, i’ll just unpause the game. Now where am i going?..fuck. Pause the game, go onto the map menu, search the map, oh, there, well im not gona get there without pausing the game again in about 3 minutes.

        Its not a gimmick, it makes the game better. Just because Somy have been using the same BORING interface for 3 generations, doesnt mean it “perfect”. Nobody but Nintendo is shaking up the game industry. Everyone just sort of died and sunk into this mold of playing the same fucking games, with the same damn controller, and the sake user interface. Its BORING. Thats why gamers are so stupid these days, because nonody is doing anything, because they know they can get away with it.

  12. i am excited, confident, and ready to take that step in getting the Wii U in my household but i do kinda agree with the post that Nintendo has not really built the hype for the system. ever since E3 11 Nintendo has been pretty hush about what they are doing with the Wii U and when they unveiled NSMBU at e3 11 it looks the exact same as the demos that we have been looking at in the past 3 months, it looks like Nintendo is stuck in neutral and haven’t really shift the gear in building the hype for the Wii U. see ever since they announced it back in 2011 i was excited cause the innovation and where they were going with it. even now it seems they have have their shit together a little bit with new titles and a little more stability but they just need that one big punch to get them over the top and i say this i am not doubting Nintendo but they are not showing me why i should invest 250, 299, or 350 or whatever the price is and that is alot of money to throw at a not so sure future of Nintendo, i don’t want to feel like i wasted my money on a quiet misbelief that is not 100% yet. so lets just see what Reggie says at the press conference on the 13th and if he can somehow change the face of gaming or i see something that puts assurance in my money then i am on board. if i don’t see anything i will pass on the Wii U until PS4.

      1. now i didnt say that i would not be getting the Wii U im just stating the fact that all of what i said is true. nintendo has always been the to innovate new things and create new ways to play and they always start everything, but then you have your copycats (ps3 and xbox360) that take that new innovation and tweak it to their benefit and make it better (ps3=move controller and xbox360=kinect) but then nintendo lays down and says ok you wnat to take our ideas thats fine we will just keep making new innovations that change the ways you interact with your game console and your gaming experience. so you see nintendo knows what they are doing if they didnt they would have shut down years ago after the death of the n64. i say that to say this. i will eventually get the Wii U depending on what i see at the press conference is whether i get it at launch or i get it in the coming year.

  17. What is a fanboy? And this is a serious question. What makes a fanboy? Is it someone who prefers one system over the other? Is it a person who goes into deep research of somethin they just seem to want to know everything about? Or is it just some unintellegent person who only had enough money to get one system one day and try and make it look kool because it’s all they got?

    I really grow tired of this fanboy bullshit. I remember back in the day when all gamers freakin lived in peace and harmony. Someone would have a nintendo system, someone would have a sony system, someone would have an xbox, hell someone would even have a dreamcast, some might have more than one system. And the beauty of it was that they werent braggin about which one was better. No, at the most, the only ones who bragged were the ones who had multiple platforms and they werent braggin bout the specs, either, just how rich they were.

    Call my a Nostalgia fan all you want, but gaming has probably become the most vulgar lifestyle on the internet. I cant go a day lookin up information on my favorite games and systems without petty rage wars or assholes bashin people, or just dumbasses that talk out the arse (you Nintendo fanboys DO fall in this category).

    I like Nintendo- no, I LOVE Nintendo. But why is it so wrong for me to love this company? what makes it such a Tabuu? Because children play it also? So what? It’s a entertainment system. I find that more Children play on the Xbox rather than the Wii, does that make Xbox a Kiddy system? Nintendo is the company that got me into Gaming. Sony is the company that showed me that it was okay to venture out of one universe to another. Xbox showed me that even Americans know what their doin sometimes. Every Company has their strong points and their flaws. But why bash one because it’s not like the other? Why would you want two of the same thing, basically (ps360)?

    I dont even know what to call myself anymore, but I’m most certainly not some Fanboy. I’d rather consider myself a “fan”. I love all games, and while I may disagree on certain games or consoles (I’m lookin at you, Xbox. You wont manipulate me into cashin out for Xbox Live) I still overlook that for the GAMES. Because that’s what it’s alway been about to me. Not which system is more powerful, graphically, or which one has more unnecessary crap built into it (I’m lookin at you, PS3 Blu-ray makin the system too expensive), or which system does the koolest thing (Wii, motion controls are kool, but they aint groundbreakin. Same goes for you, Kinect).

    I swear, this is my last generation of gaming. After this I’m done. It’s just wayyy too much bullshit and drama these days. I’m probably gonna stick to handheld gamin, because honestly, it’s just so overlooked that no one seems to notice it exists, so there’s hardly any bashing. I might sound like some crybaby, or rager, but I guess it’s because I have had so much experience with gamin that it’s heart-breakin to see it come falling down to such a level. It’s like when you create somethin so beautiful and revolutionary, and it just malfunctions and turns into an abomination. I hope every gamer who reads this just takes a moment to re-evaluate themselves and others, and just learn to appretiate games for what they are, GAMES, FUN, ENTERTAINMENT. And there’s nothin wrong with goin down a few age levels, or goin up a few age levels, hell I know a few games I still wont play cuz they scary as fuck. But I digress. Just please find it in your hearts and minds to just think about what the gaming universe is coming to, because who would honestly wanna live in this kind of world? I certainly wouldnt. And I wouldnt want my fellow gamers to either.

    1. You deserve a medal or something.

      Gaming has become such a joke.

      My personal belief on why, it that for the past 3 generations, its just been about graphics and the severe lack of innovation and diversity.
      No new inferface, no controller, no new ideas. Sony has been using the same damn controller for 3 generations. Why? Because its easy. Its lazy. Unfortunatly, the majority of the human race is too stupid to make their own decisions. Gaming companies NEED to force change. And i know i’ll get some fanboy saying “it stays the same because its familiar”. And what? Mario is still familiar, but is also new.
      Dont get me wrong, i like Sony. I love Nintendo, but i still buy Sony’s home consoles. But theyve gotten so boring, its unreal. All of their exclusives a shooters, besides a couple of games. Killzone, Uncharted, Infamous IS a shooter in disguise, Resistance, MAG. What the fuck happened to the diversity of the psone. Psone had Crash, Spyro, Ape Escape, Medievil, Kula World, Metal Gear Solid, Tomb Raider, Resident Evil, a different Castlevania series, GT, Need For Speed, even GTA was original back then.
      THATS why it was a success. Then the ps2 game and everyone expected the same, and for the most part, they got it. Then the ps3 aaand they started to drop the ball.
      Like, what the fuck happened?

      Gamers are WAAAY too familiar with the same boring shit from 3 generations ago.

      Im not going to talk about Microsoft because they just do what Sony do, on an inferior level.

      But when a company like Nitendo, that has had the franchsies that have been around for 25 years, and still going, and still manage to be MORE innovative and creative, you know they fucked up.

      And i know exactly what’ll happen. If MS or Sony release a controller like the WiiU pad, it’ll be fanboys going, “oh my god, thats stupid” or “oh my god, how innovative”. Both arguements of which, are complete bullshit.

    The majority of devs are excited for the next gen console- Nintendo’s even drawn out 3rd parties and IPs that totally ignored the Wii.

Granted, I am a Nintendo fan, but it would be a sad day for Nintendo, gamers, and the industry as a whole if a console fails, and the industry would look really bad.

Yes, that’s great, they all have games available for them, and things like Angry Birds and Where’s my water sell like a lot. No kidding. So do Solitaire/Minesweeper/Hearts/Spider Solitaire. Everybody who buys anything with Windows gets those games. It’s not comparable.

    There are literally hundred of millions of phones/tablets/MP3 players on the market, and the owners decide to download a few popular games and therefore the game sells in the hundreds of millions. Those same people won’t, and were never going to buy ANY console or handheld to begin with. It’s not taking away sales from any console or handheld. They are the most casual of casual gamers, and you can’t grab their attention past simple things like Solitaire or Angry Birds. This $.99 gaming thing is never going to replace full console/PC experiences, and it can’t even really compete with the likes of the 3DS/Vita either. Pretty games like infinity blade are still pretty shallow experiences compared to most anything on the handhelds.

    I do agree that N has failed to create excitement. Going with a Mario game is a given since he’s their logo product and expected. They took heat in the past for not having a SMBros product available at launch (64?, i forget). Pikmin is good too as a lot of people have been wanting a sequel.

    Problem I’ve seen with N is that they haven’t completely embraced the idea that video games are an adult market now and that’s where the money is. They still seem to market mostly to the younger crowd which is fine but they don’t have the $$ – their parents do. To be successful, you’ve got to have a strong launch line-up of both your flagship products but also those that will draw in the adult gamer who has and will spend the $$ on a good product.

    I hope the WiiU succeeds.

      1. but with other two you need to sub them, media bombardment is the best way to push anything, the trouble with sites like twitter is you need to know about the product or subject. to get people speaking about something you need flashy adds and well know people saying they like it. marketing is simple thing pages of text don’t catch peoples attention. you can make a person buy anything if you get it right

  31. This is one of those few times I agree with a negative Nintendo headline. Don’t get me wrong, I will buy one, I’m a diehard Nintendo fan and have been since 1985… but I feel like I’m going to be picking this unit up out of brand loyalty. Nintendo has never let me down with a system and I’m sure this one will have some amazing games… I just don’t see that many that appeal to me coming soon. New Super Mario Bros U looks a lot like New Super Mario Bros, New Super Mario Bros 2 and New Super Mario Bros Wii only in HD. And right now it’s the only title I’m anxious to play. Bring on Starfox, Metroid, F-Zero, and Zelda, then you’ll see some excitement from me. At least announce they’re in the works. The only thing I’m on pins and needles about right now is when will this system actually street and can I afford it?

    1. Totally agree. Except the wii was the first nintendo console that let me down. originally, i was excited for wii u, but as time went on, i became less and less interested in it. I no longer will be buying this system on it’s release date. maybe after a few years when i see smash bros, zelda, metroid, star fox, and f-zero released, i might purchase it. But my that time, the new generation of consoles will be out, and it seriously might be the first time i go without a nintendo console.

      1. not only that, but looking back at all the awesome games the playstation 3 and xbox had, i always wonder why i chose the wii. zelda and smash bros, you say? those games were great but i either beat or got bored with those within a year or less. that left me 5+ years of games that I did not want to play. For me, the wii was a regrettable choice. And I’m someone who loves Nintendo

      2. the trouble i think was the lack of third party support for the wii, i think it was the power issue it was not as powerful as the other consoles so when going to design games for it you would have to completely redesign the game unlike the others where they could make a smiler product. i think it was a shame but i am hopeful with the Wii U from what i have seen

  32. Holy shit, does this site have any moderators? With all the swearing, insulting, name calling, etc. I’m starting to think I’m on IGN…

    If you guys acted like this on GoNintendo, Nintendo Life, or Nintendo World Report, you’d all get banned in a minute.

  33. My developer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from
    PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been
    using WordPress on several websites for about a year and
    am nervous about switching to another platform. I have heard excellent things about blogengine.
    net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress content into it?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!
