E3 saw Nintendo reveal more about the Wii U, with one analyst dubbing the upcoming console the “Swiss army knife” of video games.
Didn't they call the Vita that?
They might be true - and I will happily belive it - provided there are games to show it off. Please Nintendo, announce some games that really show off the Wii U - Pikmin 3 is great but not enough. Where is Retro's project?
I used to feel the same but then I thought, "Assassin's Creed 3? Aliens? ZombiU? Darksiders 2? 2 Special Ports of B:AC and ME3? Not enough for Launch? Am the reason 3rd Parties give no love on Nintendo Systems? Maybe I should not make them rush out Zelda and Metroid before time? Maybe I should try some other games, lie people do with Microsoft and Sony? Maybe I will? Maybe I gosh darn will!
I used to feel the same way, but. Assassins Creed 3 Aliens ZombiU And Darksiders to changed my mind...It's not the swiss army knife of games consoles...It's just a HD WII with a tablet controller. 2 Special ports of Batman and Mass Effect 3 Is not enough for launch. I'm not sure If I shall attempt to make them rush out Zelda and Metriod. I may try some others games, like people do with microsoft and sony. Maybe I will O_o Maybe I Gosh Darn Will!!!!!! O_O I think thats what he was saying
Does not play play HDD movies. Not Swiss are knife of anything. It doesnt do enough auxiliary things to be "Swiss Army"
The control and the thinking behind the Nintendoland seems like a great idea and well integrated its like an MMORPG dashboard i like the look of it
Swiss Army Knife No. It has it's pros and cons. The screen would be good for formations in sports games and inventory in other genres but I think the controller itself will be rubbish for fighting games.
It maybe pointless for certain types of games but I'm sure there's a whole load of uses for it in other genres. think of things like hacking mini games and so on, nothing massive but just nice touches.
Wii U has no real 3rd party support. I wish it did but it doesn't.
Jack of all trades, master of none is basically my thoughts on the wiiu
Current gen anti show stopper console lol "Catch up if you can" also comes to mind "Gimmicky paper weights for the price of one" (wii u itself and the huge gimicky control can both alternate as paper weights lol) "stale and old" is another I would never hae thought swiss army knife lol
I really think New Super Mario Bros U might sell the system,I need to start saving my money in my piggy bank, But all i have are coins in my piggy bank :(
I'll say it nice and simple. It's a good upgrade for NINTENDO FANS, who love mario,mariokart,zelda, and some hardcore games. Tablet is not my thing but some may like it. For the SONY/MS hardcore. It offers nothing. The only console which is the swiss army knife would be the PS3.
