Can Nintendo salvage the Wii U before the PS4 & Xbox One release later this year?

Xbox One big disappointment? -or- I got 99 problems and an Xbox One?

Have you guys heard about the Xbox One reveal from this past Tuesday (*sarcasm*)? I'm not trying to ride the hate wave here, but I found little to be excited about after the reveal was over. Aside from being a powerful machine under the hood and having lots of gaming potential, there are plenty of … Continue reading Xbox One big disappointment? -or- I got 99 problems and an Xbox One?
