Finally the commercial that the Wii U needs.

Post cat videos if old.

Not a big fan of Nintendo commercials.
But I guess it's a good one for who they're trying to reach out to.

I'm pretty sure we already had a thread about this.

Awesome commercial btw.

Pretty much completely spelling it out at this point. Good!
Very informative commercial. Hope it gets some sales.

Literally all they have to do is show Super Smash Bros. and they are golden. So many of my friends would buy a Wii U if they knew you had to have it for the new Smash.

Well, I guess it was needed at this point.

Yeah, I was just about to say this. Its an "overview video" and much too long to be a TV spot. Don't know if I dig the infomercial tone of it.

At this point they need a bold campaign + top celebrity.

Go viral or die trying.

This will be completely ineffective.

Nintendo's positioning the Wii U like it solves a problem (it doesn't), and in the process they're completely neglecting the excitement factor that gets people to purchase new hardware.

I don't think there's ever been a console by a major player that has come off as more dull than the Wii U right now, and the sad thing is that seems to be the tone Nintendo's going for here in their quest to position the Wii U as a lifestyle device for families.

"Just look for the "U" on the box"

hmmmm.....

Edit: After a year I don't know if I should be laughing or crying at the fact that they're still releasing these videos to explain the system.
