In case you didn’t know, Dan Adelman was Nintendo’s former head of indie publishing. He left the position three days ago after Nintendo censored him on Twitter, though he doesn’t have any hard feelings towards Nintendo.
Recently, Adelman participated in a Q&A on ask.fm where he was asked his opinion on the Wii U, its sales, and whether Nintendo deserves to be in its current financial situation. Adelman cut straight to the chase placing the poor sales of the console on its name.
Wii U is not selling as well as it deserves to. It has a lot to offer with great games you can’t get anywhere else. The value of the GamePad hasn’t been justified. But the name Wii U is abysmal. I think that cut sales in half right there.
