Wii U Name “Abysmal,” Reason Behind Poor Sales, Says Former Nintendo Employee

Posted on Tuesday, August 5 @ 10:00:00 Eastern by Alex_Osborn


Dan Adelman, the former Nintendo employee who just recently parted ways with the company, shared his thoughts on the Big N's latest home console and the reason behind its less-than-stellar performance. 

"Wii U is not selling as well as it deserves to. It has a lot to offer with great games you can't get anywhere else," Adelman said in a Q&A. "The value of the GamePad hasn't been justified. But the name Wii U is abysmal. I think that cut sales in half right there."

Do you think the Wii U name is to blame for the console's inability to resonate with the average consumer? What do you think the same should have been? I'm a fan of Super Wii, personally.
