Despite Nintendo's promise of a "full reveal" of Wii U at this year's E3, many fans and potential customers have been left wondering about some of the system's most basic functionality. With Nintendo's poor track record, online is a special concern.
My questions are. Whats the price? Whats the launch titles? Will it have that stupid number address thing when you want to add friends? The Wii had it and it was a pain.
Price will be mass market stated by Reggie to IGN. Launch titles announced as well as launch window (just google it). Nintendo Network won't use codes. .
-What's the price? -How the achievement/trophy (announced at Nintendo's roundtable) works? Does it have a leveling system? Can I use the trophies/achievements to decorate my plaza? Can I use it to buy some items ingame or items for my avatar? -We now know Fifa 13 and Madden NFL are coming, why can't you talk about more third party games?
'' Wii U optical discs has not been revealed either.'' Yes It has Reggie confirmed last E3 It will use proprietary disc format with 25gb of space.
It concerns me as to why Nintendo didnt touch on any of these things..
nintendo usually reaveals the price and release date later on their own, hardly ever at e3 they even stated BEFORE E3 2012 WE WILL NOT ANNOUNCE RELEASE DATE AND PRICE AT E3 and yet people STILL were suprised they didnt announce anyrhing
i knew that part.. The 3rd party support, online connectivity, & achievements.. Plus some ppl dont read these articles all the time & only glimpse at it once in a while
what concerns me is why people keep forgetting that nintendo never reveals price and launch info on e3 they have a seperate conference for that AND ESPECIALLY NEVER reveal the system specs what concerns me is that people are this forgetfull
3rd party support???? did you not see last e3 developer videos?? did you not see that 3rd parties are release their games like batman, zombie u, assassins creed, aliens, mass effect 3, darksiders, tekken, scribblenauts yea some of those games are already released on other systems... BUT THAT DOES NOT MEAN THEY DONT EXIST OR MATTER ANYMORE look at it as a pledge that they are willing to give the wii u a chance. they got the dev kits not too long ago and games take 2 or 3 years to develop 3rd parties are bringing in their old games and once a fanbase is established they will develop new games
Ive been burned so many times by them that i cant trust a few games thrown at me.. EA & Ubisoft have always supported nintendo.. the wii has alot of games by them.. AC3 is a great move but what about RE6, Metal Gear, Castlevania, Tomb Raider, COD? why arent those games confirmed as being released? It wouldve been great to experience those games on the Wii U & i would buy 1 if they stepped it up.. Its too risky to jump right in.. Wii U is still on my radar but im not buying it till i see more & get some answers & confirmations
How the [email protected] is Tank Tank Tank. The most popular game at E3?
WiuU? What is this?
I just felt like there are more questions than answers this E3. I know they were or are pushing for a holiday 2012 release, but I bet that it won't come out at least until 2013. It is obvious they are not ready. They demonstrated this by not giving us basic answers, and not demonstrating it during the conference. If they were ready, we would have a launch date, and at LEAST a price point! I hope Alien Colonial Marines is a launch title. I will pick that up and Mario. The Mario game looks fantastic in all honesty, and some of the small bits and pieces of info I am getting I like such as being able to carry over downloadable content. But honestly, Nintendo should have delivered so much more. The fact that they are being so ambiguous, scares me that this might be Nintendo's first console failure (not including virtual boy)
nintendo is focusing on LAUNCH OF THE NEW CONSOLE and its LAUNCH PERIOD GAMES e3 was all about info on LAUNCH PERIOD GAMES nintendo had a pre e3 conference of just the 3ds and focused e3 on ONLY WIIU LAUNCH how are they being ambiguous? nintendo HARLDY releases price and launch date info on e3 they almost always have a conference later in the summer on their own WHICH THEY ARE DOING FOR WII U THIS YEAR
and also they NEVER release system specs at e3, they dont do that at all for any system just because the CONFERENCE was HORRIBLE DOES NOT MEAN the wii u and console are horrible
Well I never said the wii u was horrible. I am just worried that the way they are handling it, might lead to their first complete failure. I was hoping I could preorder one after e3 since it is coming out so soon. We are what? 5 months from release?! The presentation they gave was as if the console were being released 9 months to a year from now! The conference was very disappointing. Not disappointed with the wii u, of course how can I be disappointed with a console that we still know so little about?
with the wii, they knew exactly what they were doing even if it seemed weird to us at first. That console ended up doing very well, and probably helped with the disappointing sales fromt eh gamecube era. This time around, I can't help but feel that Nintendo isn't ready. It was shown in their presentation. I don't mind waiting another year for them to perfect it, but I truly hope they aren't jumping the gun and releasing something too fast just for the sake of releasing it. The 3DS is finally starting to gain popularity, and they are in a tight spot right now. They have all but abandoned the wii, so this is going to HAVE to release soon if they want to compete in the console market. I just hope it wasn't too soon for their sake. Or too little too late.
most of this questions either have been answered or are just plain dumb. 5. Achievements: Yeah no info on that, but its not something thats fundamental when choosing wether to buy the system or not. 4. Memory: They have said multiple times it doesnt have internal HDD, it has flash memory but its not intended for actual game downloads. They support SD cards and external HDD. The discs are 25GB 3.They have said you can transfer the image from the TV to the gamepad, you can see the image on both, you can see diferent things... its up to developers to do what they prefer. Its not like Nintendo can come out and say how every developer plans to use the screen for every game. 2.They already said there are multiple accounts, since last E3 ubisoft had said it wouldnt use friend codes. Miiverse already showed a lot of the connectivity options. Im not sure whats left to explain. 1.They have shown around 40 games that will be out during launch, or launch window that covers around 3-4months. What else do you expect to see at this point? whats the point of showing footage (and waste development resources) for a demo or gameplay video of games that are going to come out in 1-2 years
