      Good one. The only thing more empty than the WiiUs line up these days are Malls.

        the demos and promos they run at best buy during e3 seem to have a great response.

        The people they are targeting are not the "Buy games on release day" crowd.

          I said this in another thread, but the every lowering prices of the XboxOne and PS4 are going to put a hurting on the WiiU if they don't follow suit. Games aren't going to matter when parents start looking at prices. I really think the WiiU should be $199 with a game pack in. Probably Mario Maker.

      So, are they already going back already on saying there's more unrevealed games for this holiday? Sheesh.

      Did I miss any news about the Zelda 2016 game on the Wii U in the past few months? The only thing I saw was that off screen demo while they developers were talking about it which was floating around a few months ago.
