That is because wii u is very lousy name for a next gen console. The ds was easy to recognize dual screen, 3ds is good for third dimension but it would end up being 3dds third dimension dual screen . So what is a u? Maybe should have been wii 2 tab or something that speaks.about new system with tablet. Not hey it's just a wii with a new controller. I have the system and like it. I have two ds lites, 3ds, 3dsxl, wii, wii u, gba, nes,and snes. No Xbox. For sony I have ps1,ps2, three ps3s, three 1000 psps, 2000 psp, ps vita.
