    ASDA & Morrisons no longer stocking/selling the Wii U

    Retail giant Asda is no longer stocking Wii U consoles across its 555 retail outlets, dealing a new blow to Nintendo's bid to reverse the console's fortunes.

    The grocer, Britain's second-largest, has suspended stock on all Wii U games, consoles and accessories across its stores, though eight products (all released during the Wii U's November 2012 launch) remain available on the Asda Direct website.


    CVG understands that the company did not stock Nintendo's latest release, Pikmin 3, a widely acclaimed title which entered at number twoon the UK all formats chart.

    If they'd release some decent games, it wouldn't be so bad. Unfortunately, Wii U owners have to wait a while before we get a decent game.

    Nintendo fell over the same rock as Sony this gen. They thought Wii's brand alone would sell the U and that devs would be tossing everything aside to work on it. The reality is that they all jumped on PS4's and One's wagon with easy programming and much more horsepower. It's sad to see Nintendo facing the hard, cold truth, but I really do hope they've learned their lesson for next gen.

    Wow, now that's a huge blow. If only they had more decent titles this would not be the case.

    Damn! Bad news for Nintendo. Guess back to the drawing board for them. Looking like WiiU might become one of the biggest flopping consoles of all time. Never thought I would say that about a Nintendo product.

    I remain hopeful that things will turn around for Nintendo in the home console market. I want a Wii U for Super Smash Bros. and Mario Kart 8.

    There is the problem. Nintendo just doesn't look like they can survive with this solely on 1st party. The 3rd party is not there and they are suffering because of it. Their 1st party support is strong but it's just not enough to outweigh the horrible 3rd party support. Not to mention the backing off that many decided to do. I really thought that the WiiU was a noble attempt but it just hadn't worked for Nintendo so far. I've been a big Nintendo fan over the years but there just isn't much thing for this thing to make people want it.

    Exactly. I hope this doesn't stop the development of the AAA games we are hoping for.

    Asda have recently just overtaken Sainsbury's market share by a couple points, Tesco on the other hand are still gaining market share even though they're WAY out in front.

    Haven't been in Asda in a while though the one here doesn't exactly have much of a media aisle.

    I love Nintendo I really do, but I been playing Mario, Zelda and Metroid since I was a kid. I can only stomach the same thing over n over again for so long.
    PCs are very much like Air Conditioners.
    They both become utterly useless once you start to open up Windows....

    I didn't buy the Wii U for two simple reasons:

    1. the lack of game that really interest me.
    2. the price point. I will not pay more than 250$ for the 32GB one.

    But, this is a major blow to Nintendo for sure, I hope they could finally understand what they are lacking to push the Wii U.

    The biggest mistake they made with it was not having a true 3D Mario at launch, we've had zillions of 2D Marios already.

    I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to see an actual 3d Mario game on the Wii U. Much like the one that is coming to the 3ds... Goodness. I can imagine a nice 3d Mario or Zelda on 55" screen.
