Black Ops 2 Wii U is Happening.

"What did Nintendo have to say/show about Black Ops 2 on the Wii, Wii U, or even the 3DS during their 2012 E3 press conference, and during E3 in general? Nothing.
Does this mean that Call of Duty: Black Ops II won't be releasing for the Wii U? No, and I believe there is more than enough evidence that shows Black Ops 2 will release on the Wii U in the launch window, and it will also offer some great use of the Wii U's GamePad for controls.
So, with the current official release date for Black Ops 2 being 11-13-12, November 13th, what is this "evidence" for Black Ops 2 releasing on the Wii U, probably as a launch title, later this year? Brew yourself some coffee, and let's take a look!", writes CoffeeWithGames. (Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, Wii U)

I get COD got a big fanbase but who going to want to buy a COD game at full price on a different console possibly 2-4months+ later?

Call Of Duty prices don't drop quickly so in 2-4 months. It might still be $60 but i agree with you on the other points. Why would I buy this on the wii U

The wii u standard or pro controller doesn't look like alot of fun to be playing cod on and the community for the game will be larger on the ps3 and 360. Plus the wii u is wifi only so i definitely don't want to be playing online games on this system.

Nintendo has to do alot more to win over core consumers. Their online network may be too controlling compared to psn or xbl. So again there alot of reasons core consumers or casual consumers will buy this for the wii U.

The CoDs on the Wii actually had quite a few people playing. Using the Wiimote always made me want to throw the whole thing out the window, but it was a perfectly functional CoD with online play, on the Wii.

@ Ravenor

We're not talking about the wii. We're talking about the wii U and the reason i listed above are valid complaints on why someone would pick up cod on the ps3 or 360.

I wonder what they can do with the controller. This will be interesting as much as I prefer Battlefield. Also, I want to know more about the online capabilities of this console.

Are you and Lucretia the same person? Always trolling Nintendo articles and saying it probably won't be fun to play. If you don't want to play games on this system why are you here in this article? Why do you try so hard to downplay Nintendo systems? I think you should waste your precious time with something else.

Youre making a lot of assumptions. Do you have a crystal ball? Let's wait for the launch and see what the console brings to the table. :)

Also, if you don't want to play COD on the tablet controller, you can simply play it on the pro controller, which makes your hasty assumption "it won't be fun to play on the tablet controller" veeeeeery useless.

We don't even know if the WiiU will be successful or not, how can we say it won't have a big community? lol

I am sorry, but youre not just trolling, youre being ignorant as always (that's exactly what you do in all your trolling comments).

I reckon any family with kids who like to play CoD. Besides, the more new 3rd party support it gets, the better.

And core Nintendo fans too. Like myself lol.

It will be good for the kids hooked on COD who use the livingroom tv. They can game out and when the mom needs to watch dancing with the stars or whatever bs the kid can resume on the tablet controller. This would be the version to buy if you have kids. I see this being a key selling point to families.

Besides half the COD sales come in well after launch. I still havent gotten MW3 but will for the co-op and campaign when its on sale. COD MP lives on for YEARS.

People keep forgetting that games like this need a little more development time-

Yes, WiiU may be easy to port to but thinking of ways to use the WiiU Gamepad may take sometime.

Especially, if you want to do something cool/neat/original.
3GenGames  +   1049d ago
The UI part of it is made to be adjustable by the controller from each console so each console port from one to the other takes the least amount of time possible, WiiU won't change that much. Maybe a little UI on the screen, OR maybe just a static image up there and say screw it, which is more likely. The controller is the same ammount/arrangement of buttons so hello copy+paste from either 360 or PS3's control scheme.

And I highly doubt Activision will do something cool/neat/original, they're Activision for Christ sake.

lunaluagua*, if you want mario on ios then you are not a "gamer" in the true sense of the word.

ios has done nothing but water down the gaming industry, turning kids of lego age into so called "gamers" because they can fling an angry bird with their finger...

The CoD's have been on the Wii, why shouldnt they be ported to the WiiU also?

I'm pretty sure Blops 2 won't be a launch title for the Wii U this year. Instead, Blops 2 will get released next spring. Believe it or not Blops 2 isn't one of the primary launch titles for Nintendo's new system. Hardcore Cod players on Xbox and PlayStation aren't going to buy the Wii U for the same game, and especially for that controller.
