Iwata on lack of recent Wii games, Wii U stacking up to PS3/360 successors

Nintendo president Satoru Iwata comments on the lack of Wii games in the past couple of years and addressed a concern that the Wii U could lose out on some future games if it's not as powerful as the PlayStation 3/Xbox 360 successors.

I have 3 Mario games and 2 Zelda games on Wii out of around 60 titles in total, not including Virtual Console and Wiiware games. Tell me more about how I as a Nintendo fan only play Mario and Zelda.

Trying to sell it as a social device is not a good move Nintendo. We have these things called computers and phones which we already use to socialize with people and to play games.

Perhaps you didn't see any of the game demos or controller functions at E3.

modesign2181d ago

hate to be camptain buzzkill, but the wii tablet is probably limited in range so you cant take it everywere to play games, and if you can why would you.

When PS4/nextbox launch Wii U will stay back again no brain the new consoles will be so strong & the graphics so advanced that ports will be impossible on Wii U unless they downgrade them hard, as I have already read in many articles already Wii U cant even keep up with PS3/xbox so figure out by that.

Btw what's this crap Ninti continue say that consoles distract every1 on home & other family members cant see TV? they continue to say this crap again & again, how no1 told them that there is no chance a gamer doesn't have a 26-32'' LCD TV on his/her room, most houses have 2-3 TV maybe more so why they continue to say this & use it as a marketing tool.. get real dudes we live in 2012 not in the 60's & 70's where every house have 1 TV only.. :/

darkgod2181d ago

oh lord oh so it cant keep up with ps3/360? i herd otherwise lol

yabhero2181d ago

Sir do you have specs for any of the three consoles you mentioned? No. Then kindly shut up... It's makes you sound ignorant when you talk about WiiUs power or the other consoles when nothing is know about them expect fanboy speculation and rumor.

Ramas2181d ago

yup use your brain, simple logic, WII U will be first new generation console, so ofcourse it will be most powerful console up to date. my personal guess 20% more powerful then current consoles.
After 1.5 year when ps4 and nextbox will be released they will be ofcourse much more powerful then WII-U.

Truth be told, like I've said numerous times already, we won't see a huge jump unless Microsoft re-writes the API for software engineers or if maybe Sony introduces new televisions that can output more pixel densities.

Though functional, it wasn't really the ideal platform for those who spend the most of their time multiplayer gaming online (Barring: Cod's, Conduit 1/2, Monster Tri, etc.). Limited hardware also played a role in the Wii's lack of potential AAA 3rd party supported software.

I would like to think of it as an, "you live and you learn" experience for Nintendo. Whatever the shortcomings - the Wii is Nintendo's most successful hardware console they've ever manufactured in their history of gaming.

They've negated the bad (basic online service, friends codes), and have expanded upon the positives. The Wii U will be a balanced console for gaming's next generation.
