Nice! But if I may add a request, please let me start were I stop on any video please!!! Because the PS3 dose not, unless there has been an update since last week or mine is just screwed up please add that to the vita because I have a vita and would really like that! Hake sometimes I just say screw it and get on the xbox because the xbox can actual start back up from where you left off.

It is true that at the moment the Vita is selling more units than the Wii U on a weekly basis, however, the Vita has been on the market for over a year, whereas the Wii U has only been out for six month - so you can't pull out the sales figures and try to make the Vita look more impressive, because I can 100% guarantee that the Wii U's first year sales will beat the Vita's (only needs to sell 1 million more units in 8 months to do that 9.9). Momentum will pick up towards the end of the year, with numerous first party titles due out just before the Christmas season.

Keep in mind that during that same season, it will be competing the PS4 and Xbox One. With the PS4 priced at only $25-$50 more than the Deluxe Wii U, would it fare so well. I expect Nintendo to cut the price before then, but would even getting it down to $299 be enough?



All I've heard from developers lately, ranging from big companies to indie developers, is how easier Nintendo have made it to get content out on their platforms.

Heck, Crunchyroll could just use HTML-5 instead of Flash and the Wii U would be able to play the videos straight from the website using the internet browser.

I expect if getting a video app on the Wii U was as easy as getting one on the Roku, CR would be working on an app for it right now. After all, I think the Roku has fewer deployed units when the CR app was developed for it than the Wii U has now. Even if they made it as easy as getting an app on iOS or Android, CR is probably working on one, or at least has one planned. I suspect, however, that "easier" means "not as difficult as getting on the XBOX or PS3".

As to HTML 5, keep in mind the need for DRM (to keep the licensors happy, if nothing else). Even with the resources of a behemoth like Netflix, they only recently implemented HTML5 video, and then only for ARM based ChromeBooks and computers running Windows 8.1 Preview with IE11.

Funimation has stated their new site would be use HTML5, but didn't specifically state it would use HTML5 video. It is supposed to be out by "late summer", so if they can pull it off, then clearly CR could.

Your point is valid and the sales don't lie, but the Vita's also had an extra, what, 8ish months to get there, and the 3DS has sold pretty much record numbers for it's time on the market. The Wii U will get an install base, that's just a matter of time. I know a number of people who say they'll get one once the price drops or Smash Bros/Zelda/Metroid hit. But whatever, this isn't a videogame forum, I can rant about that later lol, but the Wii U does have pretty much a dream interface for streaming. And beyond the big 3 streaming it is getting a porn app soon too so that'll be a thing. I personally think a CR app on the Wii U will be amazing. For streaming videos the second screen can be really useful, and Miiverse will get CR some more notice with people. I see youtube posts in the Wara Wara Plaza all the time, so I'm sure a CR community would get some great stuff that could get people to check it out. The Wii U and Vita are actually pretty similar, both are great, under-appreciated systems, so I'd love to see CR support get on all of them. And considering how much CR covered Nintendo E3 news, I'm surprised they haven't announced anything for it yet too
