The Wii U Launch Titles Easily Beat The PS3 and 360s Launch Lineups

The Wii U launch titles has been under fire from a lot of gamers online lately. We continually hear the Wii U launch titles are not that good and many have voiced their concern with the amount of ports that have been announced for the system. While we always want to see original games on any system the quality of the ports and the general misunderstanding of a new console into the industry has us defending the Wii U launch line up here at playeressence.com (Industry, Nintendo, PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360)

Better is always a matter of opinion. But it does have a very strong launch lineup.

I'm looking forward to the Wii u but a lot of the launch games are ports which are better on the ps3 and Xbox. The Wii u needs more original games and I'm Hoping for a strong lineup of new IPs at the nintendo event. Games Im not looking forward to are Mario and the usual suspects. Nintendo Wii u will cater more to core so I hope that is proven on Thursday where there should be an outline of quality titles due to be released within eight months or so

I agree. When the Xbox 360 came out, it didn't need many games to stir the pot. It had games that looked awesome and had a lot of promise for what would come.

On the other hand, having lots of ports for the Wii U seems uninterresting and there are no games on that list I really want. The only game I care for happens to be a port of Mass Effect 3. I don't think the secondary screen will add even as much as what Kinect did to the Xbox 360 version.

I want to buy the Wii U, excited for it and think that it is where things are going to happen similar to the Xbox 360s arrival. Looking forward to see what they are going to do with their online network, although what they have shown doesn't seem like it will be a competitor to PSN let alone Xbox Live.

None the less, I'm likely buying one!

LOL are we REALLY comparing launches of the next gen Wii-u to the launch of the 360 in 2005 and the PS3?

Come back and make this same article when the 720 and PS4 launch. I bet the story may turn out a little different.

ABizzel1  +   1169d ago
No to rain on anyone's parade, but comparing the Wii-U launch to the PS360 and saying it's better is a bit far-stretched.

Just looking at the launch games of the two and most would say the Wii-U, but it's deeper than that. The Wii-U is riding off the coattails of the PS360 which is the only reason it has Assassin's Creed 3, Batman Arkham City: Armored Edition, Darksiders 2, Mass Effect 3, Ninja Gadien : Razor's Edge, and Tekken Tag Tournament 2 (possibly others, but these are the ones that matter).

If it wasn't for PS360 launching 6 years ago the Wii-U would have none of these games. Add to the fact that they'll never be able to play any of the prequels (Unless the developers / publishers pull a Sony and start making "Saga / Trilogy Collections").

What's the point of owning Mass Effect 3, if you'll never be able to play Mass Effect 1 & 2. The Wii-U has a great line-up for anyone who only owned a Wii last generation, for everyone else, it's a collection of ports, Pikmin / P-100 (if you like it), New Super Mario Bros. U, Wii-like Mini Games (if you like them), and ZombiU.
Nimblest-Assassin  +   1169d ago
I agree with the title, that the wiiU launch line up is much stronger than both the PS3 and 360... the problem is a majority of the games that will launch with the system are already out on 360 and Ps3.. making ZombiU, Rayman Legends, NSMB U, and NINTENDURLAND the only games people have not played

I really hope on Thursday, Nintendo shows games that makes me excited and want a wiiU

And what of the Xbox and ps2? You seem to forget the gen before this one and the relations between them...
_-EDMIX-_  +   1168d ago
@Abizzel- Could not agree any more. Plus people would need to understand that this is not a system with "new" tech, its acutally a system with tech comparable to this gen, thus its easier to make games for.

If the Wii Launched and had a bunch of PS2 games, would people be jumping and comparing it to the PS3 or 360 launch, completely disregarding that the PS3 and 360 at the time had new tech to consoles?

Wii U, is pretty much a PS3 or 360 in terms of tech, the only reason Launches for systems are dry have more to do with the timing and technology then anything. Hints, why the PSV launch and 360 launch had so many titles, 360's launch had PS2, and PC ports, Gun, Tony Hawk Wasteland, Quake 4, Bully, COD2, Splinter Cell Double Agent etc. Now really, what is so "next gen" about those titles? I would say COD2 and Quake 4 get a pass based on being PC titles in the same respect WatchDogs and Star Wars 1313 will get a pass if they launch on 720 and PS4.

But the Wii U isn't getting titles like that, they are just getting ports from PS3 and 360 games, not PC ports (which just shows how inferior the system will be compared to the PS4 nad 720)

The point is to not have a lot of "titles" its to actually have titles that are "next gen" or in the Wii U's terms "use the screen pad and play in 1080p) but clearly from what we've heard, not many games will even be in 1080p. If its just a bunch of PS3 and 360 ports, whats the point of even applauding such a thing?

"Slow down guys, i need to buy a $400 360 because of GUN and TONY HAWK WASTELAND! Oh yeah, i own a PS2 too"

Same applies to the Wii U, and mind you its not even NEXT GEN, where it counts. The ports will dry up after PS4 and 720 come out...then what? 3rd parties want to make bank on systems with similar power ie why Mass Effect isn't on the Wii. But WHY IT IS ON THE WII U!!!!! Where does Wii U stand with titles like Mass Effect 4 or BF5 etc?

It won't get those games cause EA is trying to make money off of the most systems with the most similar specs ie PS4, 720 and PC JUST LIKE PS3,360 and PC before it. (PC being both Next gen and current at all times)

So saying Wii U's launch has a lot of games and acting surprised is quite silly. Wii U is current gen in terms of tech...why wouldn't it have ports from this gen's games?

Wii U is going to be what Wii was this gen.

Left behind. Next gen in terms of timing (to the Nintendo fanboys who seem to think the title of "next gen" warrants anything)

but its current gen in terms of tech. (CLEARLY where it counts)
sikbeta  +   1168d ago

There are a bunch of ports though, even if NOA President says otherwise, it doesn't matter though, Mario and a nice price-tag is all Nintendo needs, $250 packed with a game and wii all over again...

Man, I dont understand what all this debate is about!? Why the hell are people comparing the supposedly "nex-gen" WiiU with PS3 and XBOX360?? If it is a nex-gen system then compare it to the upcoming PS4 and XBOX720. If it is a current gen system then it is almost 7 years late with marginally improved performance so no big deal even it somewhat trumps them. Seriously, it is just an underpowered 7 year late console. What is so incredible about it that Nintendo fans are defending it like crazy? Actually I think Nintendo fans should be outraged considering how Nintendo is screwing them second generation in a row.

This sounds crazy, but not a single person I know cares or even knows when the Wii U is launching.

Army_of_Darkness  +   1168d ago
Not sure how it's a better line-up?!
Most of the Good games on the wiiU's line up are either ports from current consoles or can be found on other consoles, so I don't find their line up better in terms of convincing me to buy their new system...
Still waiting to be impressed Nintendo.

NukaCola  +   1169d ago
I know I sound dumb or a hater for this, but the Wii U line up isn't spectacular. There are only a few original games. I own or will own all those 3rd party titles on PS3. The Mario game is another 2D title like we have seen over and over again this gen. And Pikmin 3 is a Wii game upscaled. I think they are rushing to push this out the door.

I think Nintendo wants to be smart and get that head start but they could of launched a year later and delivered a Zelda, Metroid, Smash and more exclusive 1st party titles.

Not saying it's a better or worse than PS3 or 360. I think Nintendo home consoles usually always launch with great games. I think they could of waited. The first year looks ok at best. I still think they are going to Relaunch it next Christmas when the big hitter come out.

Zombie U looks awesome tho for sure. And if Rayman is exclusive, I'll get it. I loved Origins to death.
ConstipatedGorilla  +   1168d ago
Going way back, but I remember I bought a SNES at launch. It launched with Super Mario World (my favorite 2D mario of all time), and I think Pilot Wings, Populus, and Final Fight (the dumbed down version). I was still very excited to have it - though at the time it was considered powerful - because I knew that there would be great games down the road. So in comparison to THAT it's a strong launch for a Nintendo console. I just hope we see great stuff down the road.
tehpees3  +   1169d ago
I guess its my opinion that the Mass Effect 3 port looks far superior to the quake 4 port. 360 launched with a lot of overhyped third party games that were clearly rushed to cash in on launch. Gun was the example of a bad overhyped game which had a terrible port.

If your looking at it from a first party perspective I would say 360 is better but overall I would say Wii U trumps both PS3 and 360 for launch lineup. Thats the thing about ports. You know exactly what your getting into. We will see how AC3 holds up but we know mass effect and darksiders are good games and I would argue the quality of those games is better than any third party PS3 or 360 launch title.

And of course people will compare it to launch lineups because its launch lineups you should compare it with. It will take a while before the true support shows for any next gen system. Quite frankly I don't think the 720 launch lineup will look as appealing to me because this might have Tekken as a launch title (something that hasn't happened since PS2). And 720s launch lineup is likely to be very shooter approached compared to this.

There is also a good amount of variety and they are all quality games in their genres. But this goes on if Tekken is a launch title (hopefully). Ninja Gaiden 3 also deserves another chance I think. It looks a lot more true to the previous games now.

To be expected considering this console is coming in on the heels of an almost 7 year old generation, offering only marginal improvements at best and therefore not able to be classified as a generation above the current lineup (from a development perspective). Being that the majority of what wii U is getting are current gen ports running on current gen engines, it isn't fair to compare it to the 360 and PS3 launches that were next gen titles running on next gen engines. Of course the lineup will be a lot more sparse when you're struggling to code a new engine on new hardware, resulting in many games that were supposed to launch with the system being delayed. Most of the dev tools and franchises to port are already in place, and even new titles can be made using existing engines (like the latest version of Unreal Engine 3).

no offence to any gamer. but if the wii-U can bring gaming back to variety like in SNES days im all for wii-U. drop my ps3 like hot potato for up-grade HD ol school sidescrolling games such as R-TYPE,EINHANDLER,GRADIUS,G-DA RIS,METAL SLUG,CONTRA.

PopRocks359  +   1169d ago
It only means nothing when someone disagrees with you.

Every now and again I hear someone say how bad the Wii U launch is. Now someone says the opposite and suddenly it "doesn't matter."

So not only do you acknowledge that it's a stronger launch lineup, you're backpedaling on what you said before.

EDIT: So your only argument then is that having a stronger launch lineup doesn't matter. My, my, aren't we logical.

One of the most important factors for a game console to sell to core gamers is games. This comparison basically suggests that the Wii U trumps its prior competition and the only viable argument you have is that 'doesn't matter.'

I suppose the next thing you're going to tell me is that it would not matter if Nintendo offered an online service on-par or superior to Xbox Live for free.

because people were blinded by the promise of next gen. The only good port was cod2 to my recollection, and it as one of the only good games in the first place.

Gc ps2 and Xbox had much better software than this gen in my opinion. And hopefully next gen is even better. So far the wiiu lineup is looking pretty decent, a rarity for a launch lineup. That is why this is such a big deal.

After looking at this comparison it's hard to argue really.

I don't care for most of the titles for each system's launch to be honest. I see like 3-4 games from X&P I wanted to play and about 5-8 from Wii U...

I like when people put the FACTS out their though. Instead of just assuming, speculating and flat out making stuff up.

That Sad thing is that other people who get paid to write, didn't even do this much research.

Great read...straight to the point.
Hicken  +   1168d ago
I think the problem is that so many of the games are ports. And not JUST that they're ports, but that they're ports of games that have been out for quite some time. That definitely diminishes the potency of the lineup, even though the games are of good quality.

Sure, the PS3 and 360(and Wii, to a lesser extent) had launches that had ports, but most of those ports were released at the same time on the previous generation's platforms. This situation is rather different.

fei-hung  +   1169d ago
Because many games on the list are games many people have already played on current gen consoles and unlike Wii versions compared to the 360 and ps3 versions, the WiiU ones are ports as supposed to being different.

Although the 360 and ps3 may have had less launch games, most if not all were not ports from the ps2 gen. Ps2 either got its own version or a downgraded version.

How many of the PS360 launch games were actually ports? I'm not 100% sure, but aren't most of them sequels? Might as well call the Wii U launch lineup "ports" then, seeing as how games like Just Dance 4, Scribblenauts, NSMBWiiU, etc already had games come out before the Wii U. And what is that? Like 10 games that are PS360 ports?

Why are we comparing the Wii U launch lineup with the PS3/360's launch lineup? Why not just wait until the Xbox 720/ PS4 gets released, THEN compare their launch games.
madjedi  +   1169d ago
"Why are we comparing the Wii U launch lineup with the PS3/360's launch lineup?" Probably because nintendo fans consider it unfair to compare a "next gen" launch title to a current gen game.

I say compare them to current ps3/360 games, after all they are a last gen system, compared to the wii u(supposedly), the ps4 and xbox 720. We shouldn't have to compare a brand new game to a 7-8 yr old game.

The only game that seems interesting so far is Lego Undercover. But i'm not buying a 400$ machine to play it. I'll wait for Zelda, like i always do with Nintendo machines.
MySwordIsHeavenly  +   1169d ago

If I bought a Wii U at launch, I'd probably get ZombiU, Lego City: Undercover, Scribblenauts Unlimited, and New Super Mario Bros. U.

That being said, I don't think any of these titles are/will be as much fun as I had with Call of Duty 2/King Kong at the 360's launch or Resistance at the PS3's launch.

The Wii U may very well be an entire generation behind... :/
PopRocks359  +   1168d ago
" The Wii U may very well be an entire generation behind... :/"

Typical. This rumor needs to die.
madjedi  +   1168d ago
"Typical. This rumor needs to die." When nintendo shows some gameplay footage that looks like a actual next gen game, and not just a current gen game with more memory, maybe it will.

A gen behind the ps3/360 i agree that would be impossible really.

However a generation behind the ps4/720, or close to it, that seems rather likely. Especially since that very nice looking zelda tech demo from 2 e3's ago, just seemed to slip nintendo's minds entirely.

Now nintendo could wow us tomorrow with a next gen, star fox or f-zero. And i would be happy it would mean, nintendo has finally started to remember to cater to gamers and not just the casuals.

Now the skeptic in me says not happening, going off of nintendo's recent brilliant press conference decisions. And the overall it's all about the controller emphasis nintendo is obsessed with for the wii u.

The controller is a tool to play the game with nothing more, regardless of whether it's a wii mote, move, kinect, tablet pad or standard ds3 ect.

But this will all be written off by pops and the rest of the n4g nintendo defense brigade as just another hater post.

Ironic since he was lamenting a lack of respecting other peoples opinions on n4g and yet he is the biggest spinner for any wii u articles. But really a handheld dev exclusive to nintendo boasting about the wii u's power, that was funny as hell.

And nintendo better launch at $299 max, unless they show some games that scream, the next gen is here b*tch, what are you waiting for. They will have an issue with people that aren't massive nintendo fans.

Well 5 yrs after launch and 10+ games, i might pick the wii u up. But i'll get a ps4 day 1, the ps3's exclusive lineup already sold me on it.

I would take any day 2-3 true next gen games for line up than this piece of crap line up. Only decent games are Zombi U and Pikmin, which are pretty much current gen games. Rest is available on all platforms so why bother. This lineup doesnt make me want Wii F*ck U at all. One true next gen game perhaps would.
