“It was all hands on deck,” recalled police Maj. Steve Beamer. “We started ramping up, thinking we may be working a serious investigation.”
The youths dug up a mystery, for sure. But not one for which modern-day authorities can claim jurisdiction."

The reason it was dead on arrival is that they changed too much that was cool and original about the first Wii and the only feature that is semi-cool about the new one isn't that big of a deal. Let's compare
- 1. Completely original, ground breaking, motion sensitive controller system that changed game consoles as we know them (Even made Microsoft copy it to an extent)
- 2. Fun casual games that sucked the player in because they were almost like doing the real activities but in your house (i.e. Bowling, Tennis, Frisbee, etc). These games were the reason that my 63 y/o parents own a Wii, because they could bowl again without having to pick up a heavy bowling ball, play tennis again without overexerting their selves, so on and so forth
- 3. Classic Nintendo games that everyone loves plus backwards compatible with Game Cube games and accessories = awesome!
- 1.Take most of the Wii list away and add a sucky new controller that is supposed to be innovative but is just kind of what it would have been like if Sony used the PSP to control the Play Station = Dead Console
So, by changing the recipe without any real new innovation they alienated a lot of the Wii fans. I don't see any added value to the Wii U so I will stick with my Wii. I have my computer if I want 1080p quality games. What I want my Wii for is fun games where 1080p doesn't make a difference besides is Mario really supposed to be in high def I mean come on people!
