Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 Listed For Wii U, Wal-Mart Lists A Wii U Game For Sunday, November 18th

With the Nintendo press conference set for this Thursday, we can assume that the Wii U release date, price, and launch titles will be announced. (Cabela’s Dangerous Hunts 2013, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, Wii U)

if black ops 2 is true, it will help out launch sales
RickHiggity  +   778d ago
Indeed. I'm not the biggest CoD fan (though I have been playing a lot of black ops recently). But I do want the Wii U to succeed

A launch day Black Ops II - good move Nintendo. It's not the best of games, but it will undeniably sell Wii U units.

It will be interesting to see how well it performs. The Call of Duty games don't exactly have a hot reputation on Nintendo platforms.

Last I heard the Wii CoD games actually sold moderately well.

"moderately well" =/= "hot reputation"

Furthermore, just because a product moves a good number of units, doesn't mean it's a quality product.

I'm not really sure it will sell Wii-U consoles. Sure, people will buy it...but it is not a system seller. Why buy a Wii-u for COD of all the reasons, when if someone wanted COD, they could buy a cheaper ps3 or a cheaper 360.

COD is not a reason to buy a wii-u (or heck, any console).
ronin4life  +   778d ago
And then there is the fact most cod fans aren't likely to buy a new console to play a game they already have access to.
Ricdog  +   778d ago
COD has proven to be a system seller, people will buy it regardless.

Thanks to Wii U, people can now play (if it does come out) COD with HD graphics and get Nintendo's IP.

If true, a Sunday launch sucks, because I'm gonna order my Wii U from Amazon, and UPS doesn't deliver on Sunday. I'm still getting BlOps 2 on a different console, because that's where my friends will be.

If it does launch, i really wanna see how much it sells.. ppl wana play that game with their friends right? maybe groups of buddies will get a wii u, but i doubt it.. Still, great move to break away from the family friendly label.. I doubt it will change much tho cuz ds & wii both got COD games

CoDs on Wii sold pretty well, all over the million. Except MW3 with only 500 000k. On the first week I believe MWii3 sold like 20 000 copys. I still remember that launch day, there was only 1800 people online versus 30000+ on Black Ops Wii.

I'm getting Black Ops 2 on WiiU. Maybe there will not be alot of people but it's like a small village, everybody knows each others and that's pretty cool.
TheFallenAngel  +   778d ago
No it ain't. It gets boring playing with the same people over and over. As long as it doesn't have little kids and it's over a million people it should be fun.
Relientk77  +   778d ago
I am not suprised, but Black Ops 2 will definitely help Nintendo
sandman224  +   778d ago
Question is how smooth will it run online? And will it be on par with the 360 version. I'd say the ps3 version but we all know call of duty performs better on 360. I still don't know why that is but. I don't work for activision/ treyarch.

wii u needs black ops 2 especially if nintendo wants the core gamers to support they new console
evilbart  +   778d ago
If this can be taken from the telly and played on the wii u pad then that is a huge plus and i will definetely get it on the wii u
