The Wii U is an excellent system boasting beautiful HD display and innovative gameplay, yet sadly its sales have fallen short of the other next-gen consoles. While the Wii U isn’t generating the revenue it should be, that doesn’t mean Nintendo is doomed, according to video game analyst P. J. McNealy. More after the jump.
McNealy recommends taking a closer look at Nintendo’s sales. He states:
“If you look at video game sales over the last 20 to 25 even 30 years and look at the top 10 games that have sold, Nintendo’s probably owned five, six, seven, eight of those games on those lists. Even though the Wii U hasn’t been selling as well as Nintendo certainly has hoped, no one is sitting there calling it un-fun.”
According to McNealy, the biggest problem with the Wii U is lack of exclusive content. It’s not a bad system by any means. It just needs more games. Many fans of Nintendo grew up playing Mario and Zelda, and would like to play new installments of their long-time favorite series on the Wii U.
Hopefully after the recent release of Super Mario 3D World, the upcoming Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze and Super Smash Bros, and continued developments on Zelda U, sales for the Wii U will shoot upwards and become a strong competitor against the PS4 and Xbox One.
