Wii U a Disaster, Says Anonymous Tipster

Posted on Thursday, September 8 @ 08:06:23 Eastern by


Nintendo. Seems like only yesterday they were making products that the entire world wanted. Both the DS and the Wii are Nintendo's biggest success stories, especially after coming off the failure that was the Gamecube. However, Nintendo seems to be losing their way with the 3DS, and according to an anonymous tipster, with the Wii U, too.

A tipster speaking to the now famous 01.net (the same publication that nailed the Vita specs before it was announced, and more recently, rumored the right-circle pad add-on for the 3DS), says that the Wii U is in "development hell" and is being "rushed through the door".

The source claims the Wii U's wireless streaming functionality--a feature vital to the Wii U--isn't working properly. Additionally, the Wii U's chipset is said to be "too weak".

Many developers are feeling lost, their progress impeded by a distinct lack of visibility, their working hours by the quasi-paced daily software updates

Says the same tipster who tipped 01.net off about the 3DS circle pad attachment. The word is that developers are preparing for a Summer 2012 release date, but Nintendo engineers are having a difficult time reaching that goal.
