Nintendo was the first of the big three to unveil a new console, and gamers have been waiting for months to catch any glimpse of the Wii U. After a year of waiting Nintendo has finally debuted the Wii U to the world.
Trolling??? Their is nothing trolling about that comment....That comment makes a boat load of sense to me. If I am picking up a WiiU which is suppose to be Nintendo's NEXT gen console then their Mario game should look like it. You cannot say with a straight face that that Mario was next gen....That video they showed us was a 2d Mario with pretty colors...Clearly not a next GEN title...I believe you might have been to quick to pull the trolling trigger.
games start looking BETTER when the console gets older look at early ps3 and xbox games then look at uncharted 3 now.... would you want those big name games to be BETTER?? so wait a couple of years so the devs can learn to work with the wii u
I'm just wondering if it'll to late then...next gen will be in a couple years to
THEY SAY THE BACK GROUND ARE NEXT GEN ....LOL
Hey Sony`s 2006 E3 Conference Im real happy for you an ima let you finish but Nintendo's 2012 E3 conference was the worst conference of ALL time! Of all time!
lol at that Reggie pic he`s like "im not even mad".
Yet when Wii-U moves millions of units and shows to be a crucial player once again what will people say. Do you not learn about Nintendo lol. Sony 2006 Nintendo 2008 Microsoft 2010 Now those are some fails.
I don't care if the Wii-U moves millions of units.. I'm more concerned about software and Nintendo failed to impress me on that at E3...
See that is the key they have failed to impress you but they did impressed many others. Third Party is here for them from a game standpoint with some major players. I care if they move millions units because then more developers will be inclined to develop for it.
yes the conference was horrible but read the hands on previews, everyone is saying great things about the games JUST BECAUSE THE PRESENTATION WAS HORRIBLE DOES NOT MEAN THE GAMES AND CONSOLE ARE HORRIBLE
nintendo failed to hype the games up but i mean cmon man rayman legends looks glorious pikmin 3 is long over due lego city game looks like crazy fun super mario bros is fun with friends zomie u breathes new life to the zombie games just because the conference was huge failure does not mean the console and games are bad
They only impressed super loyal fans.. Everyone including investors were disappointed in the show.. Casuals & ppl who like more adult oriented mature rated titles see no difference in the system or a need to buy one... The surveys all over the net show that only 3% of 67000 gamers were willing to pay $300+ for it.. & this was before the conference so those numbers have decreased im sure
Look at the Wii, it was a gimmick form the start. Under powered and lacked games and yet it sold millions. Nintendo won't change there ways because the sheep lap it up, waiting for the next generic instalment of mario and zelda. I will stick with the PS3 and 360 thanks
Wii sold well because Nintendo struck lightning in a bottle. The gimmick was exactly right for the time and the casual rush. The real question is will the casuals be ready to sink more money into a new Nintendo console or are they content with their investment in the Wii? The core Nintendo fans will be there to help initial sales. But, they won't be able to sustain the growth that is needed in today's industry without the casual market and the cross-over sales (owners of multiple consoles).
Nintendo shouldve shown LOTS of 3rd party games even if 1st party was scarce.. Now potential customers are less likely to buy the console at launch & possibly forever.. I wish they wouldve announced new partnerships or something to at least give ppl hope that something will come down the line.. Personally, i still want one but im going to wait 2-3 years so it can build a solid library of games i want to play.. B4 E3, i was ready to pre order it immediately.. Even 3DS was a let down.. The localization of Fire Emblem & Castlevania are the only things i have to look forward to on it & thats 4+ months down the line..
Well I wouldn't say miserably. They didnt come strong on the first party front. They needed a Zelda or a Metroid or 2. Also, they didnt show the WII U to be graphically superior which makes ppl think that it's no better than a ps3 or 360. And I know their new console is more about innovative gameplay but with MS and Sony pushing similar tech with Smart glass and vita it kinda stole that thunder. But what they did do is confirm a new commitment to the core gamer with 3rd party support and a better online model. Which is important because if you dont grab the core gamer early you'll lose them.
This E3 was supposed to show the Wii U as a next gen console to get PS & MS guys on their system. They failed miserably. . Nintendo is betting big on the casual market again. They demoed Wii Fit U, Just Dance 4, Karaoke something, Nintendo Land, etc. It's clearly a casual system. . Zombie U reminds me of Red Steel. . NSMBU is too soon. NSMB2 is coming in August. . Pikmin 3 is the only core title they showed, and it's very niche. And visually wasn't very impressive. . Next Generation Game Engines will not be running on this console. Therefore next generation 3rd Party games won't be coming to the Wii-U. So what little 3rd party support it has will dry up once PS4/720 come out. . You won't be seeing Samaritan running on it. EVER. . Back to the casuals. They don't play their Wii's now. Do you think they are going to spend hundreds of dollars for a Wii U? For new iterations of casual games they already have and don't play. Wii Fit / Just Dance / etc. . How is the Wii U going to sell well when it will be the most expensive system on the shelf? The Wii was always the cheapest. . The only market left is The hardcore Nintendo Fan. Which is a very small niche market. See GameCube. . The Wii U is a disaster unless they truly can convince the casual market to buy it.
Bravo!!! i didnt have the patience to explain all this again... Its upsetting but its true.. The fans are too blind to see it but it is definitely true.. Im a proud fan of Nintendos quality & art but theyre milking their franchises by slapping a different coat of paint on em, repackaging, & selling it again at full price.. 3rd party wouldve made EVERYONE on board with the console.. More 1st party wouldve just added so much more.. The casual approach just ended all excitement that might have been..
casual market wont buy shit. i bet the console is going to be expensive,the secondly its going to be hard to convince people who are casual and own ipad or other stuff like that.The prob is at e3 this year they didnt have a clear target to aim the wii u at. further more they didnt show the capabilities like you said.nintendo have showed their hand to sony and MS,watch what is gona happen next year,they will render the wii u obsolete.its already happening with MS and kinect.
Nintendo is barely catching up to MS and Sony in graphics with this Wii HD system, and in another year or so both MS and Sony will move on to bigger and better systems. Will this system play DVD's?
Are you seriously complaining about a DVD player? Guaranteed you have at least three devices in your home that plays it already.
The wii u is meant to replace many things around the tv...thats why the command pad can even change channels However things like price and storage support are absent. Even their online is lacking
which leads me to believe that this console is going to cost a lot of money...lol I was very curious as to why they didn't go into spec and price on the WiiU.
Well i think nintendo fucked up big time at E3 and sony and microsoft will eat their ass if they do not get their act right.They cannot capture the same casual market as they did with the wii,that boat has sailed looong ago otherwise the wii would still be selling but its not why? because first of all the wii console is toooo under powered to be taken seriously. also the casual market is content with what they have and with the rise of smart phones that casual market is as good as dead. They can only hope to get a little of the casual market but not a great deal as they did with the wii.That said the worst mistake nintendo can make now is to have a console that is dead on arrival as soon as the next xbox n play station comes out because the wii u will be for nothing.They had every chance to BLOW the fans away and make the competition sweat. honestly if i am microsoft of sony i will sleep well knowing that nintendo is confused and is pissing on their self..nintendoland really? i felt someone put a knife through my heart lol. why didnt they show even more tech demos like the zelda from last year? if they were not going to demo games thats the least they could have done but showing sing,just dance..nintendoland is an absolute joke. Anybody who thought nintendo at e3 this year was any good should think hard n deep and realize that nintendo as gone amok truly.
even fucking zombie U that is suppose to be exclusive may no longer be Wii U exclusive...damn game over man!
fuk trolls... :)
We all have our preferences. I hapen to prefer mario, scribblenauts, rayman, pikmin 3, zombiu, darksiders 2, aliens, and project p100. so yeah, Wii U is right up my alley
I was dissapointed but i guess they gave us what we asked for. Everyone always says they know it will have great 1st party games but theyre worried about 3rd parties. People claimed the wii lacked 3rd party support also. Thats why N decided to focus on 3rd party games to shut everyone up and show them that they will have alot of support. The thing for me is that i know they will now but what about when the next box and ps4 launch. It will be another wii situation where its the oddball console that cant run multiplats. For a few years it will be great though (and 1st party/3rd party exclusives are most important to me as il get every console). I realy dislike Reggie though. Hes horrible and comes off as a greasy used car salesman. Trying to say games rereleasing on the wii-u are new. I already played arkham city a year ago dude, old game is old.
