damn double posts. Anyway here's a shocker

Darksiders 2 disappearing from Wii U eShop in Europe March 31

(48 minutes ago)
3

For reasons currently unknown, Darksiders 2 will be removed from Europe's Wii U eShop on March 31. A message displayed on the shop notes that it will be available for re-download only for those who have purchased the game, and otherwise unavailable digitally. We suspect the reason has something to do with the implosion of publisher THQ.

We've checked in with both Nintendo of America and Nintendo of Europe for more information – Europe for specific reasoning, and America to see if Darksiders 2's eShop life is nearing its expiration date here as well.

Can't post link right now but wii U sales were up significantly in Japan & UK after a big price cut. Don't know if it's just a temporary cut though.

Gamers don't really have a choice. You either give the Wii U time, or you don't play it at all. There is not other option since they just won't release any worthwhile games.

I'll never understand how Nintendo could have made the same colossal mistake twice. All of the initial low sales numbers for the 3DS were caused by Nintendo rushing it to market without any compelling software that would make people want to buy it. Now they've done it again with the Wii U.

It boggles my mind. It's exactly the same thing. The 3DS is fantastic now, as I'm sure the Wii U will be later, but a system is only as good as it's games. BTW when is the next Nintendo Direct?

It seems the Wii U has a new title coming it's way.

It's for multiple platforms, but given the nature of this game I wanted to draw some attention here in the Nintendo section to Shovel Knight. (It's like Mega Man and DuckTales made a baby.)

What does give it time mean exactly? If you don't own it already does it mean don't buy it yet? If you do own it I guess he's saying don't sell it, but also what..don't play it till the true big hitters arrive?

They should have been ready with wii U earlier. I can see why they rushed it if they were behind as there's not much point releasing it alongside the next gen consoles. Maybe not possible to organise but on the tech and component cost side it should have been possible to come out with something llike the wii u earlier.

It's definitely a weird thing to say. I'm sure the higher ups at Nintendo weren't so thrilled with that message. By saying, "give it time" he's essentially saying, "The Wii U sucks, but maybe it won't in the future."

They could have made something like the Wii U in 2006...

I think every Wii U owner is saying that themselves. I actually respect Miyamoto for saying it too.

Wii U does suck right now...Only because I don't have much....of anything...To play on it. Hell.. I think it was a MAJOR mistake to not have the VC ready to go at launch.

Crossing my fingers that they blow us away at E3. The 3DS is going to..because it's the 3DS. Make me happy that I spent 350 on this paper weight Nintendo. I KNOW you can.

I wish he'd said exactly that..then I'd have some real respect for him

It's a very weird statement he's made, but I like that he's acknowledged the fact, whether or not it follows company policy!

I've suggested it before and quite a few people didn't really like it. I don't know why it wouldn't have been possible quite early in the last gen given the wii U specs. And it would have given Nintendo fans the choice of owning the wii U as their main console and even possibly their only console.

3rd party games are dominant now and without their support you are only viable as a 2nd purchase alongside a PS3, 360 or pc. Keep a low priced version that is equivalent to the wii and the more expensive one is the wii U to play all multiplats along with HD Mario & Zelda 7/8 years ago! They might have completely decimated that last gen (especially with the basic wii's amazing start) with that kind of strategy. I'd definitely have gone with them over 360 (was never interested in the original XBox) while waiting for the bloody delayed-in-Europe PS3.

Never owned a Wii till I bought a Wii U, so I never knew about these channels.
