The Wii U suffers from several flaws. First is the name — one of the worst names ever for a product. Nobody knows what the hell a Wii U is or how it’s different from the regular Wii. Second is the fact the the hardware is not really “next generation”. It’s a marginal improvement over the existing Wii. Lastly is the positioning. The Wii and Wii U are for kids. Real gamers have a PS3 or Xbox.
