PARK CITY - Nintendo is at the Sundance Film Festival again for the upteenth year, this time trying to promote its new Wii U gaming console (pictured above).
For the next several days, you’ll probably see photos of celebrities playing "Mario Bros. Wii U" or "Zombie U" in between premieres. You won’t see Microsoft or Sony showing off its gaming units, but Nintendo is becoming desperate after poor sales of the Wii U.
After disappointing sales during Christmas, the gaming console sold just 21,000 units per week in the U.S. and Japan this month. That’s the same number the 7-year-old PlayStation 3 sold per week this month.
The Nintendo Lounge at 753 Main Street in Park City is mostly open for invited guests only. But on Monday, it will be open to the public. So get your game on.
