Default Re: Wii U in 'development hell', claims tipster

Nintendo's problem is that this generation made them arrogant, the same way the PS2's success made Sony arrogant. Nintendo thinks that because the Wii and DS sold well, they can pretty much get away with anything and people will buy it, but I think they are overestimating how much casual gamers actually care about updating their game systems every generation. Wii was an interesting novelty that people would ask for as a Christmas gift, but Nintendo isn't Apple, and the success of one device hardly guarantees the next-- especially since the "blue ocean" customers today are less and less interested in game systems and more interested in phones and facebook.
