No offense, but the "75% of people not wanting a Wii U" is NOT inherently non-Nintendo or Nintendo hate.
That just doesn't make sense.
People probably aren't interested in Wii U (YET) because...what reason is there to be, again?
Seriously. Someone tell me. I'm a big Nintendo fan and even I have no specific interest in it yet. All Wii U is right now is a vague console concept. Its price, release date, tech specs, and even its first party launch lineup...none of that seems set yet, and we know next to nothing about what features it will have from a firmware standpoint, or exactly how we will be storing games on it (since it apparently won't have a hard drive?) etc. etc.
I could go on, but my point is, seriously, that is a WEAK SAUCE argument. Don't blame people for having no internet in a system when they don't know anything about it.
It's not consumers' prerogative to pony up hundreds of dollars for a product they know nothing about. It's NINTENDO'S job to get people interested and excited in said product.
I have faith that WILL happen -- and even if it doesn't right away, as long as some quality software is there, it will probably pick up like 3DS has.
But right NOW? No one is interested not because of Nintendo hate (though many gamers DO feel a bit burned/rejected by Nintendo), but because there's NO REASON to be excited about the system yet when all it really is so far is a concept.
I SINCERELY hope Nintendo fixes that in a few weeks at E3...I guess we shall see.

Can't complain about that!
