that's impressive! although ill probably wait and get a Wii U later down the road, this is good for early adopters, really digging Monster Hunter Tri-U, Bayonetta 2, The Wonderful 101. Can't wait until i do finally pick up a console.

How many of those 51 will be delayed? Probably 20. This happens every console launch. There are always a ton of games that are either suppose to come out near or at launch, and they end up getting delayed

Maybe not 20, but 5-10 will probably be delayed no doubt.

its been stated by Nintendo the launch window is 4 months, so 51 games in 4 months is fairly do-able considering a lot of those titles are ports and games that are coming out for multiple consoles before the years over. games like Bayonetta 2 and Monster Hunter Tri-U are probably not going to come out in that 4 month window ill bet. not really sure why you decided to make up the figure 20 for the number of games being delayed though, you have no way of knowing and i highly doubt half the list would get pushed back or delayed. look at the titles man, most of those games are casual games, ports, or games that are already coming out soon, not sure why ports, casual games like Jeopardy or Wipeout, or games already scheduled on other consoles to come out or have been out would get pushed back.

that still 40 titles left and somewhat impressive .

Of course most of those will intrest those on the fence for wich platform to buy multiplatform .

But if a nintendo fan , and knowing your favorite multiplat games are coming too , with superior realisation and /or extra features , it might tip you in that direction

whats everyones system seller game? i like bayonetta 2 but i see no gameplay so idk.. Wii u is powerful yet nothing is using it.. WHY??? I wana see something to make me buy it
akaakaaka  +   1118d ago
nothing that get my attention and if nothing good comes out before the PS4 comes out and from what i can see it wont I will end up not getting one...

if the Alien games and Zelda came out I may have got one until the PS4 comes out...

Anyway I will take a close look at those games later, but I seriously doubt there is a system seller that will make me want to buy a Wii U.

I am not a Nintendo fan, and have no interest in the type of first party games they make. So it would almost certainly take something something from a 3rd party if I ever buy a Wii U.

I really regret buying a Wii. Heck I sold it after owning it for only a month, and half. I don't even really know why I bought it other then everybody else was buying it, and I was a sheep following the pack.

That is a nice launch window. Nintendo has come a long way since the N64 launch, which only had Pilot Wings and Mario 64.

I pre-ordered my Wii U Black console today, along with Mario Bro's U, ZombiU, Pikmen 2 and Batman Armored Edition!
ozzywazzy  +   1118d ago
Both of which were fantastic games with Mario 64 being amazing. The same can't really be said about this line up other than third party games which don't convince me to buy a new system for.

I can play most of them on my 360 and playstation 3

I will wait and see what MS and Sony have in store for next gen before buying a WiiU.

but i do hope the WiiU is successful.

Im ticked bayonetta 2 is comingnon Wii u ans no annoucemnt for 360 or ps3 although out of all the titles announced I think that game will be delayed
Forbidden_Darkness  +   1118d ago
They didnt announce it for the ps3 or 360 because Nintendo themselves are publishing it, thus I doubt we'll ever see it on either if those systems...

Bayonetta 2 a WiiU exclusive? HOLY ****! I guess Nintendo really means business with the WiiU.
