I can't wait for the "but, it's a different tech" comments that will flood the internet when sony and ms copy Nintendo's success....again and again.

Excerpt form article:
"Last week, Xbox World magazine leaked details it says it has surrounding Microsoft's next console, the Xbox 720. That device, according to the magazine, will include improved graphics, an enhanced motion-gaming experience with the Kinect 2.0, and a Blu-ray drive."

- Lol, what? I thought microsoft was not including a blue-ray drive in their next/future console. I guess they finally realized that the digital distribution only model is not the way to go if the disaster psp go was any indication of that.

I am glad that common sense is finally kicking in to some degree at microsoft. Now only if they can stop nickle & diming their customers, stop charging their customers for online play, stop investing most of their resources in the casual gamer crowd and instead invest more into the core gamer crowd I might consider investing in a console from microsoft.

LMFAO!!!!! Love the 420 reference ! P.S. I could have sworn there is a rumor about a tablet for the 720. If true then Microsoft and Nintendo are following Sony ! lol! I admit Sony is my favorite but i'm not a narrow minded fanboy. I will get all three if they offer enough over and above what Sony offers ,and that is what I hope but it wont be easy for them to pull that off! Sony tries to give every gamer/casual something compelling, and so in my opinion Sony is the one with the broadest appeal ,and the safest bet for a single console owner all things considerd.

One thing he is right about.....would MS have made the Kinect or Sony the PS Move is it werent for the HUGE success that was the Wii and the motion controllers???

Nintendo one upped the competition with the Wii hands down SALES wise. But can the WiiU do the same??

We shall see!!

People are asking, what took Nintendo so long to get here? Gee It's not like they were the #1 selling console this gen and made a buttload of money. Oh yeah they did do all that. Yeah without a more modern console. A good gimmick and new Mario paved the way for the Wii's success. In the long run though the Wii got old fast. Few gamers owned just a Wii. You had to have a 360 or PS3 as well to play all hardcore games. Especially in HD. In the end Nintendo made a lot of money and that's all that matters to Nintendo.

Now here comes the Wii U. It's finally like 360 and PS3, but is the gimmick strong enough? Only time will tell. It certainly hasn't captured the imagination of the world like motion control did, but one thing is for sure. When Nintendo releases a 3D Mario game and Zelda game. Wii U sales will go up. That's a given.

Here's what will make or break the Wii U. Listen up everybody. If the Xbox 720 and PS4 (whatever there called) are leaps and bounds above this current gen. What would you rather play, COD on Wii U or the new next gen COD. That has hyper real graphics like you've never seen before, that's on 720 and PS4? I tend to pick the better looking game. It's not like I ever picked COD on Wii over the 360 version. Anyway, this all depends on how impressive the 720 and PS4 are. Will have to wait and see.

Would love for a intelligent response to my post's anyone??????

nintendo need not worry
i think next gen wont be that different to this gen.

not many companies apart from the giants can afford to produce games that actually push the consoles to their limits.

so if ps4/720 come with some powerhouse consoles, it will make little to no difference because the average software company wont have the resources to actually produce games up 'to scale.'

so what you will end up with is a console with few titles that actually showcase the tech, and LOADS of software that would easily fit on ps3/360.

so, i think nintendo judged correctly with wiiu.

lets not forget the world is in economic turmoil. nintendo creating a 'budget' console fits perfectly in todays world.

sony/microsoft will be taking a massive gamble if they go 'all out' on the specs, which will only result in expensive, in-affordable tech.

They already did Reggie, and they laughed their asses off.
BrianC6234  +   506d ago
Shut up Reggie. You finally reacted to Sony and Microsoft. They'll bring out their new consoles when they're ready. And both of them will blow you out of the water.
MasterCornholio  +   506d ago
Well he did say that Next Gen started because Nintendo said so.

Funny he reminds me of a real nutball from Sony.

@Thepcz

The Wii U isn´t a budget console but the Wii was for 250€ at launch.

@Orionsaint
"Few gamers owned just a Wii. You had to have a 360 or PS3 as well to play all hardcore games."

That is because the Wii was extremely under powered in comparison to the competition which is why Wii only owners missed out on a ton of great multiplats. Hopefully the same doesn't happen to the Wii U but there have been a ton of rumors that the Wii U is a pretty weak console (which i find hard to believe that it´s weaker than the PS3 or the 360)

"It's likely that faster processors and pretty pictures won't be enough to motivate consumers. They need to react to what we've done and we need to continue innovating with the Wii U and we will."

Dear Reggie, while the Wii enjoyed early success it is abundantly clear that ... pretty pictures and faster processors were more than enough to lure consumers away from the Wii to the 360 and PS3 in droves later on it that consoles life cycle (Wii sales have been tanking for 2yrs now). Expect more of the same this gen Reggie it just will happen faster this time.
PiperMCFierceson  +   506d ago
I can't wait until nintendo ends up in last place again just to see what this idiot had to say.
Just because it sold.the most doesn't mean a thing.except more profit for them Sony was first insales once everything flips around remember Reggie.
thaimasker  +   506d ago
yes because 30 million more consoles and much much more software sales and handheld sales = last place.
blackstrr411  +   506d ago
I'm tried of playing mario zelda n donkey kong. I grew up with them n now I'm a fcuking adult. Excuse me if I don't wnna be an italian plumber anymore. Gheeze. Don't care bout nintendo n I hope ms n sony don't follow them and make upto halo 20 and God of war 15
bauer007  +   506d ago
This guy is pathetic! If you make an inferior console to your competitors how do they need to react to you? Nintendo sucks
thaimasker  +   506d ago
prob because nintendo's sales are putting sony's and microsofts to shame.
bauer007  +   505d ago
Yes! they are screwing gamers you idiot LOL you think its great that an inferior console is selling better? It means that nintendo have taken everyones money and sold them something that wont even be comparable to its competitors "nextgen" machines!
Spacemagic  +   506d ago
I'll buy a Wii U when a) a zelda drops for it, or b) it gets an achievement/trophy system. And whatever people say "derp derp u need a superficial ding to play a game" whatever man, the trophies on ps3 have allowed sooooo much more replayability to games I enjoy, plus I like having friendly competitions with my friends and seeing where they are at in games.
Rageanitus  +   506d ago
they really need to shrink that controller!! its much too big sorry this is the exact reason why xbox 1 got mocked for its massive controller... but this is even bigger.
Mikey Mike  +   506d ago
SONY and Microsoft reacted six years ago by bringing the same graphic capabilities as the present Wii U. Reggie is on crack!

A bit off topic, but does the WiiU offer weather and news applications like the Wii did? My wife loves them.
dollison27  +   506d ago
Never like Reggie he seems so clueless. When the Xbox or the PS4 release the thing will be relegated to the scrap heap.
pedroyamato  +   506d ago
Everybody should be aware about the others on the market.
Nintendo 3ds jumping on the 3d boom (AVATAR?). Or Wii U and the tablet control (ipad?). Nintendo policy these days has been to figure out what is selling out and jump on it as soon as possible. It is the cheapest and easiest way.

On the other hand, microsoft and sony really should be aware about nintendo moves. And they are, kinect and move are the prove that nintendo moves are important to be seen, listened and respected.
Should Wii U sell 3 millions of units til the end of the year as Pachter (that bash wii u just few months ago) said, then, I would not be surprised the next ps4 to show some special controler with a screen on it. They copy each other. That is not news.
daclynk  +   506d ago
WOWWW Reggie.
You better know what to say because YOU ARE SCREWED if SONY AND MICROSOFT COPIES The Wii U gamepad and just add a little power to thier Next Gen consoles.

Yup, but most fanboys will disagree due to delusions. The Vita is dead, getting destroyed and devoured by the 3DS with a near 40-1 in sell ratio. If a graphic bump is all Sony has for the Playstation 4, they are screwed. People acting like this isnt real...lmao cmon now, its called Playstation Move/ Playstation All Stars/LBP Karting. This is real, only non-delusional fanboys can see it. Theyve already reacted and will continue to react.

As for Microsoft, they are screwed no matter what. All they have is their Xbox360 launch crowd audience, everyone else knows the Ps3 is superior in all aspects. Too bad their launch audience is huge.
pedroyamato  +   506d ago
Drainage, u do know this place is infested by sony drones yes?

U r brave for telling them the true but be prepared to be voted down...
TronEOL  +   506d ago
Really? Because all I'm hearing about the Wii-U from people who've played it (friends, girlfriend, etc) is that it's incredibly fun to play with friends and family. Now where have I heard that before? Oh, right, the Wii.

And how did that look for hardcore gamers? Not very well. I'll stick to Sony, Microsoft and my PC for now (and forever).
TheBatman_Fanatic  +   506d ago
LOL! Why?
pedroyamato  +   506d ago
because nintendo is making money with their plataform while sony is losing zillions of dollar for the last 4 years?
