Nintendo seems to have completely lost the casual market
The thing about the casual market is they are exactly that casual. They aren't going to keep buying new hardware + Wii U is driven more towards the hardcore market IMO, which Nintendo loss with the Wii. Personally I have played the Wii U and I liked it but the price is too high for something I know is going to be way behind Sony and Microsoft 12 months from now + GAMES, Where are the games that aren't Zelda or Mario
(I like some Mario but hate Zelda).
