E3 is approaching, and Nintendo has just scheduled a global Nintendo Direct event on midnight June 12 (Sydney time) – updating the Nintendo faithful about the future of Wii U games. And given the fact that most of the Wii U games have come from first-party, as opposed to third-party, it needs to really find a way to excite the fan base.
The press conference is essentially do-or-die. The Xbox One and the PlayStation 4 have pretty much put the Wii U in a similar position to the Wii with the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3. It is technologically inferior. However, what could save it from being a massive flop if it gets a price cut (if it is really desperate. Nintendo has ruled that out in the past; but guess what, desperate times calls for desperate measures) and has a strong list of both first-party and third-party games.
Good luck Nintendo. You will need it.
