    1. 3DS Mario Tennis on a larger screen and Xenoblade that people have grown tired of waiting? None of that shit isn’t gonna save or improve that wasted garbage console at all, not even a price drop which should’ve been done by now already but once more, Nintendo has shown their EA-like side.

      1. Is Nintendo getting a profit from the Wii U? Yes, they are.

        But should they have dropped the Wii U’s MSRP months, maybe a year ago? Yes, they should have.

        “However, dropping the Wii U’s MSRP is going to cut the profit from it”, would say someone.

        Someone who has a short sight, like Nintendo does. Heck, in business, you need to sacrifice something sometimes. In the mid- and long-run, it is better to decrease the profits, but increase the markeshare. But Nintendo is greedy and lazy, so they wanted to keep selling an abismal number of consoles at a high profit — and, ultimately, ruining the company’s reputation because of the poor marketshare — raher than decreasing the profit and increasing both the marketshare and aspirational value, enriching the consumers’ regard towards Nintendo and paving a brighter path to Wii U’s sucessor.

        1. Only because of 3DS being its crutch. Take that off and what is Wii U? To many; an add on, generation late console with a big ass iPad wannabe forced controller and a “library” of lame ass games on repeat from previous generations with Splatoon as its ONLY SOLE EXCEPTION but given that it only does 4v4, no voice chat FOR FRIENDS ONLY, no controller options aka Gamepad forced again, only lasts 3 short fucking minutes per “match” that doesn’t even require player killing entirely (just doing the whole “deBlob” thing) and it rush-launched at full price while half-assed in content *cough* DESTINY!

          1. I myself tried Splatoon twice — during the global testfires — but it didn’t click me at all. But I’m 100% aware that Splatoon became a great hit for the Wii U and it pushed some units.

            I’ve said this already, the only 1st party well worth games for the Wii U are Bayonetta 2, Mario Kart 8, and now Mario Maker. But it is so little. Even the GCN had more outstanding titles than the Wii U has as of yet. Zelda is currently lost inside Aonuma’s drawer; F-Zero is probably a corpse already; Animal Crossing was subverted; the “3D” — please no one tell me that 3D world is a proper, actual 3D game! — Mario we had this generation was a lame copy & paste from a horribly-designed and easy 3DS game.

            Whenever I look at my 3DS and the few amiibos I own, I feel something like “here lies Nintendo/WIi U, 6-feet under”.

            1. Bayonetta 2 is a 3rd party game, not a 1st party.

              And dude, are you saying that it is small based on wht you like or in actual facts, because I may not even search for them, but I do know that the Wii U has a good enough library of games to justify it, if they’re not of your liking thats another thing, but the Wii U has plenty of good games.

              Also Super Mario 3D world IS a 3D mario Game, wether you like it or not (or are you saying that is the same thing as New Super Mario Bros. U), and is actually better than 3D land, I played 3D land and you can finish it in a day, not the same with 3D world (unless you decide to play without stop, but only I do that).

              The Wii U isn’t dead dude, stop beign so pessimistic.

              1. My bad on Bayonetta 2 — in fact, I meant “exclusives”. You got my point but decided to be a little picky, right?

                If the Wii U is good home console for you, that’s good — no sarcasm here.

                Also, if you consider 3D World an actual 3D platform — even after playing SM64, Sunshine and Galaxy 1 & 2 — okay, so be it. But keep in mind that here are technical reasons that prevent it to be considered a bona-fide 3D title.

          2. This isn’t about Splatoon. One game doesn’t make the console. If you don’t like the system, then you don’t like the system. Say it sucks and be over with it.

    1. I can tell us Americans are butthurt by this… but I got both those games at a discount price, so I ain’t even mad. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

          1. >>>Thank you too>>>

            >>>These are difficult times for the empire and someone has to be a balance between the people and the Hive Cluster>>>

  1. what I don’t like with those bundle is the fact now there are games preinstalled on the console, I would rather have the physical copy with the console, also 32 GB of space is a bit of a lie. Before we hear any winging from NA, don’t worry guys you going to have a better bundle (i.e an addtional remote or free DLC) for a cheaper price

    1. >>>We all know the Wii U is a failure, you sold yours, not your problem anymore, why are you still wasting your time crying?>>>

      1. Because whether he admits it or not, he wants Nintendo to succeed & do a hell of a lot better than they are now. Me, Stranga, Rootgamer, & many others would love nothing more for Nintendo to prove us wrong & make a total 180 but so far, Nintendo hasn’t proven shit.

        1. >>>So you all need to cry and say the same things over and over every day?>>>

          >>>Isn’t that childish?>>>

          1. Well if Nintendo won’t listen to us, what else can we do? The casuals & idiots outnumber us so not buying their games won’t even make a fucking dent these days.

            And childish? No. Complaining about OTHER people complaining is childish because usually when people complain they actually have a good personal reason to complain. Or if you want a worst case of being childish, look no further than an idiot shooting up a place & murdering a slew of people because they didn’t get the cup of coffee they wanted from a Starbucks.

            1. >>>Yes but many adults in here complain in a way that a 5 year old human child would complain>>>

  2. At this time, I think 99% of all people who wanted a Wii U, already bought it. It’s time to Nintendo swallow their pride, recognize that this has been a lost generation for them due to monkey business, and move on towards a long jorney in order to reclaim all their fans who were betrayed by them.

      1. I barely believe Nintendo’s situation will be solved in only one generation since there is no obvious solution to drag them from the hole they put themselves.

        1. >>>The Xbot leader Phil Spence turned around their demise in less than 1 year, if they can, the empire can better so no>>>

          >>>And you under-estimate the attraction rate humans have on technology>>>

          1. He did so because this generation Microsoft listened to their fans. They substantially improved their home console features, and even backwards compatibility was implemented — remember, the X360 and the X1 have different architectures. Also, they are bringing great exclusives to the X1, besides being continuously fed by 3rd party studios. I would love to see Nintendo revamping themselves, believe me. But the culture over Nintendo is different from that one from Microsoft — you know what I mean. That’s why I don’t see Nintendo improving soon.

            1. >>>Cultures and reasons will be erased once they see the reality of things>>>

              1. Does that stand for Japanese people? I don’t think so… Just go over what happened this generation… I’m really too pessimistic on what is next for Nintendo…

                1. >>>Doesn’t matter what they call themselves, the essence of the empire will prevail over such useless features>>>

  3. Nice bundle. Glad people who buy it will have two good games to start off their Wii U gaming. This will help them to buy other games too. Holiday bundles just love them.

  4. Smart move to put two games of the reasons to buy a Wii u together in a bundle i hope Nintendo of america is smart enough to release the bundle in the USA but it’s Nintendo of america so i don’t expect much

    1. Either way, it’s not happening at GameStop. Didn’t they say they weren’t going to be releasing bundles without hard copies anymore?
