Analysts discuss Wii U's mid-term forecast

"Scarcity during the holidays of 2012 will stoke pent up demand all the way though spring time of 2013. Where it's going to get to be a little more challenging is around the May time frame or when warm weather shows up again. I think Nintendo is going to really need to demonstrate what is truly amazing about this by that time." - John Taylor of Arcadia
"Naturally there are enough curious gamers and Nintendo fans that will want to try it out - and that will eat up the initial supply. The real issue comes in about six months. You'll know more positively at that point how the console is viewed by consumers." - Colin Sebastian of R. W. Baird
"The Wii U will quickly lose positive momentum from its launch due primarily to pricing. We believe there are already a number of cheaper, comparable alternatives." - Michael Pachter
