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.
