Discussionist: What would you do with the Wii U?

Does the Wii U need help?

With the recent announcement that the Wii U sold 160,000 units between April and June, we ask the question: does Nintendo need a change of strategy?

If you had a day in Nintendo’s shoes, what would you do? Does anything need to be done? We want your hows, whys, and why nots.

Or perhaps you think the Wii U is perfectly fine. You might also think that Nintendo should bow out of the home console business altogether.

In other words, this Discussionist is dedicated to Nintendo’s Wii U situation.

Please, this isn’t a place to say, “LOL NINTY SUCKS” – and any reference to its competitors should be within the context of business, like how a competitor’s approach might effect yours, should you become Nintendo.

Let the discussion commence below, folks.
