Nintendo won't make the same mistakes again, right?

Thomas Whitehead on the Mistakes of the 3DS Launch and problems Nintendo needs to avoid with the Wii U launch. To summarize:


  • system software not ready at launch
  • priced too high
  • too few launch titles
  • poor advertising in some markets
  • misinformation about the 3D in mainstream media


I hope they've learned their lesson in time. Eight months away from launch, and already we know of a few launch or near-launch titles from major third party developers, games like Assassin's Creed III and Darksiders II. Advance news like that is good for the Wii U, and good for Nintendo.
