Not good... not good at all.

This is a bad move. Don't get me wrong, if it's not ready, then its just not ready. (But) WTH have they been doing since E3 2011?

I love Nintendo... but how many of the games announced at E3 2011 will actually be playable at this year's conference? This is utter BS because all they need is a demo... or anything!

This is just unacceptable, especially when you factor in all the praise that the WiiU has been getting from Gearbox.

how is this nintendo's fault?

mike1up2373d ago (Edited 2373d ago )

That's not how I meant to come across. I will take a finished product over a rushed game any day of the week. I was very angry... infact, I have no idea who to blame.

E3 2011 left me with a certain impression, and perhaps my expectations were a little high. I just figured that with all the praise from Gearbox, and last year's announcement, that they would at least have a demo ready by E3 2012.

But you're right, Nintendo promised this game as a launch title... nothing more.

The game is coming, there is no need for a demo right now, they only need to release a demo before the launch and you will be able to see if the game is good or not.

As for the Wii U controller, you will be able to see if it's good/confortable or not playing some other games during the show.

Aliens won't be playable but maybe we will se some trailer or gameplay of the Wii U version.

It's because the Wii U version won't be up to par. Either that or Nintendo thinks it's too hardcore for their family friendly E3 presentation.


Nah, it's probably just not ready yet or something.

I don't care if it won't be playable since I won't be there, but I would be upset if it isn't shown.

Too bad really. Though I suppose the silver lining is there is now more room to focus on other Wii U games.

" This is utter BS because all they need is a demo... or anything! "

Ubisoft had demos last year.
So more devs will have it this year.

Well current "Suspense" Trailer is damn good. Wii U version could look better?

Dude, what the hell? You're getting angry and stressed out, lashing out against companies saying it's "unacceptable" when it's just a video game man. If you let tiny things like this stress you out and get you angry all the time, you're not going to live a happy life. Sure, it would be nice to have it playable at E3, but you'll get to play it soon enough. Sheesh.

If Dr. Phil and Kermit the Frog had a baby, they would name it chanmasta... Sheesh.

Thats a shame I really wanted to see how it would look on Wii U

Hisiru2372d ago

Well, it doesn't mean we won't see gameplay footage from the WiiU version it means that it won't be playable.

WeskerChildReborned2373d ago

Aww i wanted to see how it looked like on Wii U cause i heard it's on par with current gen Playstation and Xbox.

Hisiru2372d ago

Well, the developer actually said the Wii U will have the best looking version for console, so it's not "on par", it's better.

DeadlyFire2372d ago

Well considering it has at least twice the power of PS3/X360. Wii U version will look pretty damn good.

jacen1002372d ago

You need to read and hear some some up to date news i think

CouldHaveYelledUiiW2373d ago

THEY Said, "NOT PLAYABLE"-Meaning, we will see it BUT "they" won't be able to play it. Why is this story so misunderstood? And mis-reported?

DeadlyFire2372d ago

Not playable. Does NOT mean it skips E3. Young journalists these days and misleading titles.

DA_SHREDDER2372d ago

The wait to E3 is killing me. The past few E3's have been underwhelming to me. To me everything just evolves so slowly. The WiiU is gonna be a beast if it at least does 720p 3D @ 120fps. Built in video chat via touch screen. Is there gonna be a subscription? If so I'll sign up day one.

Hisiru2372d ago

I enjoyed last year's E3 press conference from Sony and Nintendo.
