After Playing Wii U, CNN Doesn’t Know It’s A New Console o_0
I believe this is Nintendo’s problem, not Mr. Frum’s. If Nintendo had named it something else… Sigh. They said they were making it to go back to their hardcore fans. If that were the case, they should have dumped the Wii name like a hot potato. The hardcore would figure out what Nintendo’s new console was. They could even put on all the ads, “from the makers of Wii,” to sucker some casual’s into the mix (the few that want more games than just Wii Sports, which they already own). I don’t feel like this is a console for the hardcore at all. Nintendo doesn’t seem to feel that way either.
Larry Frum, a video game journalist from CNN, was at E3 trying out Wii U on Tuesday. Frum begins his Wii U impression-article with a rhetorical question – “Will Nintendo’s forthcoming Wii U controller breathe new life into its aging Wii console?” Although Frum had a lengthy hands-on demowith Wii U during E3, he does not know that it is a brand-new console .
Frum thinks that Wii U is a new controller for the six-year-old Wii. I guess people are still confused about whether Wii U is a new console – even some video game journalists. Frum also talks about his experience with Wii U games and toward the end of the article, he calls Pikmin 3 a “kid title.”
