One of the things that Nintendo has been criticized for constantly over the past year of the Wii U’s life cycle is that it hasn’t done enough to help confused consumers know the difference between the Wii and the Wii U. Many people think the Wii U is just a tablet accessory to the Wii, a console that spawned so many accessories and doodads for play it’s no surprise the confusion exists.
We’ve seen instances of retailers getting confused by the Wii U and advertising the wrong product in promotional images and even analysts agree that the Wii U name has done no favors for Nintendo. Well, it looks like they’re taking a stab at trying to fix the issue this holiday season, with a group of kids casually explaining the difference between the two as though they’re practicing for presenting the argument to their parents. It’s not a bad attempt at fixing the confusion, but I hope Nintendo has more up its sleeve.
