    1 - Get a bunch of people.
    2 - Toss them in front of the Wii U and record them.
    3 - Pick the ones that you think sound the best, show them.
    4 - Profit from people who see the commercials wanting to know what's different and taking an actual interest in what sets your product apart.

    Oh. So I guess we're not reaching out to the core gamers anymore, we're back to family-oriented gaming? :tpi:

    These are a different take than the usual CFs I've been seeing on the TV. I have seen something like these, Nintendo of Korea has a few CFs like this, where they just get (famous) people and record their gameplay and reactions.

    To be fair, I think this campaign is directed at the idiots current Wii owners who are not aware of the fact that the Wii U is a brand-new system. They seem to stress the word upgrade a lot so that the less sharp crayons in the crayon box get it.

    Nintendo found that "hardcore gamers" didn't prove to be as receptive to the dubstep as they initially thought.

    "How will U play next?". C'mon Nintendo, stop hiring catchphrase-generating spambots - grammar is not their forte. :angry:

    well. I'm a ninty fanboy and even I'm starting to lose faith in Nintendo's attempts at making the Wii-U actually catered towards gamers, and not families.

    Don't forget the step where Nintendo pays them to enjoy the Wii U :creep:.

    I'll stop now.

    I would enjoy the Wii U very flipping much if I got it for free. Ninty, you hear me? I can star in your Polish commercials, I'll gladly do that! :tpi:
    Gamers tend to like games, Nintendo should try that approach. :tpi:

    Rather than making awful ads that are aimed at getting people to recognize that their new console is actually an entirely different machine than its predecessor, maybe they should hire some new people in the naming division (I assume they need a whole division to come up with such awful names). Actually giving your console a new name rather than a single new letter would do amazing things in convincing people that it's a new item.

    I mean, 3DS, Wii U? If I was an uneducated consumer, I would guess that these aren't in anyway new from the DS and the Wii.

    You don't even need to be so blunt with the name itself - Microsoft wasn't with the XBox 360 and people understood that it's a new system. All Nintendo has to do is be frank in their adverts. Yes, Nintendo - be blunt, say "brand new gaming system" or something, differentiate it from the old one because idiots are still confused.

    I think we should go back to classic Nintendo naming and just rename the Wii U to the Super Duper Nintendo Entertainment System. The SDNES is sure to be a major hit.
