Question: Why is everyone all of the sudden calling Wii a failure?
Answer: I think I can answer this question by correcting one minor point: the one where you say "Ever since Wii U was announced, everyone is talking crap about Wii suddenly." Really? You just now noticed that?
When the Wii was first announced is when the Wii hatred started. Since the very beginning, hardcore gamers have been crawling all over each other to make the coolest new joke about "waggle controls" and "casual games" and "Not more Mario!" It didn't let up when nursing homes and soccer moms helped Nintendo shatter industry standards, and it sure as shinola isn't going to stop during an era where their next home console is gonna be named after a sound effect Stimpy would make.
In the end, it's just that - talk. Nintendo made a cheap system that's fun at parties, generally accessible, some fun and experimental concepts in gaming, and your Nana can use it to watch her Netflix without calling you for tech support. You either like it or you don't, and the jibba-jabba is whatever.
