Out of curiosity will you come back and apologize and eat your crow if it turns out to be successful? One can look at it this way, when the next consoles come out, the cheapest option will be the Wii U and parents could easily make it a huge success later this year. By the way, the same thing happened with the 3DS and I'd say it's pretty successful at this point.
As far as I can tell the next big release is Monster Hunter, I'm pretty sure it's not a system seller, but it will get some people to buy who haven't yet. The other thing you may have to factor in is the economy being where it is now, people may not want to be spending this kind of money on a new console, which could in turn hurt Sony and MS later this year if they decide to release them. I don't see why we have to crown a victor in the first 3 months of their existence. So, the numbers aren't what they hoped? And? As long as I get my games, I'm happy. New Super Mario is good fun for the family. Skylanders Wii U may be the best console version of the game. That's what I got and I'm ok with it. Admittedly, there's not a slew of great games for it right now, but it'll happen just like it does for every other system. Or did we forget that the first six months to a year of the PS3 and Xbox 360 had very few 'system sellers' and AAA titles?
I'll never understand the hate for a system. You getting kickbacks from the other console makers? Can I get on board with that? Do they use PayPal or is it direct deposit into your account? So, what's the motivation? Just because you don't like certain games doesn't mean that it's not going to move the needle for someone else. Smash Bros. is undoubtedly a system seller, as is Mario Kart. All I need at some point is a decent Metroid game or two, Advance Wars or whatever they want to call it, as long as it's tactical and turn-based, a new Zelda, a new Mario, Pokemon, Civilization V, and I'm good. Anything else beyond that is gravy.
