I'm not really sure who this console is catered for. WiiU doesn't seem to be immediately drawn to casual gamers, and 'hardcore' gamers see the gamepad as an unnecessary gimmick. There are so many issues with the console, too. For example, why can I not plug headphones/mic into the pro controller?! How am I meant to talk to other players, or am I forced to use the gamepad for games that are more suited for the pro controller?!
Apparently Unreal Engine 4 can run on the WiiU but like most of you have already said, once Xbox and Sony release their new consoles, both of the consoles will both overshadow the WiiU.
Seeing as all the launch titles are underwhelming and most can already be played on the Xbox, why would Nintendo think anyone would want/need a WiiU? The gamepad definitely isn't interesting enough on its own.
I just... I just don't get it. I'm all for new consoles, but it really seems Nintendo have no idea what consumers want with this new console.
