The Wii U has had one of the most BORING release cycles I have ever seen. A month left until release and we know the most basic information. We have the most basic information regarding games and little understanding about some of the Wii U's features - eShop setup and pricing, Miiverse accounts, etc. Judging by the Miiverse promo they had with Non-specific Action Figure, it sounds like there will be account names - but it can just be seen as a proof of concept video as opposed to concrete details.
Do you think this lack of content surrounding the Wii U is a good thing as it adds a little surprise when we finally get the console in our hands, or do you think it is the WORST idea ever? Which do you prefer?
Personally, I like a little mystery, but I also want to understand the system before I fumble around with it. I would like to see more information surrounding the games as I am tired of seeing the same stock images we have been given since E3. From a marketing perspective, it keeps the Wii U in the dark! This needs to change. Hopefully the demo station rumor at Best Buy is true and people can start getting their hands on the system to see for themselves. Still, a month away and I feel I am just as in the dark about the system as the E3 2012 presentation. Then again, who knows the type of news that will come when Nintendo finally starts posting advertisements on TV and streaming video?
