    I would love to play a bit Mario Kart against Reggie ^^

    But well, Switzerland is a bit too far away for that.

    @1 I know what you mean…”And I’m proud to announce that the WiiU is available NOW…from the boot of my Renault Megane. Meet you in the car park in 5 minutes!” :D

    I jest. Want a WiiU kinda bad right now.

    Reggie could come round to yours for some tea and cake!

    Thats it! :) but joking aside, Mario 3D World looks set to easily kick the shit out of the Xbone & PS4′s launch line up by a country mile.

    It’s almost like they are saying, “no one knows about the Wii U, let’s introduce it.”

    Poor marketing is to blame for that.

    Also, by going for the casual market (Wii) they made one big mistake… casual gamers do not care about graphics and usually do not upgrade their console unless something broke. They are content with the Wii and will not upgrade to a Wii U.

    They have some great games out and on the way, but a lot of people are still not buying it. Maybe hitting that $200-$250 price point will help.

    But I think they need to drop the casual market or make it a side goal. The name Wii U tied it to the casual market. I say, drop the name and come out with something else in a couple of years. I still think a SNES 2 would be nice :)
