(GamesIndustry International) Nintendo of America CEO is very happy with the reaction to Wii U so far, confirms no standalone GamePads sold at launch
Because someone trying to sell you something will only speck the truth about their product. They will never speak positively just to speak positively.
I'll wait for ps4 and xbox 3
bullshit Reggie. Bullshit.
Where is your data that proves him wrong? And no, n4g's "feedback" and reaction to the wii u doesn't even represent 5% of whole gamers.
lol. I'm having e3 flashbacks.
I preordered mine today right after work.
Got mine locked down as well.
Mine, too. Paid in full. Now I just have to decide which games I want to pre-order.
I hope you're ready to play alot of games you just played on 360 and ps3
I am going to wait and try and get a Black Friday deal. I don't think the WiiU will have shortage issues.
I don't think it one way or the other. It really could sell out, but I don't personally know what those chances are... I am worried it will if I don't pre-order [email protected]@;;;
Just as the Nintendo 3DS entertainment system before it. Things are looking mighty swell for the Nintendo home console department under the Nintendo brand umbrella. With strategic pricing and bundles, followed up closely by possibly the greatest launch lineup in the history of gaming. The Nintendo Wii U entertainment system is becoming a force to be reckoned with. I am also looking very much forward to my day one purchase of this fine next generation gaming powerhouse. Rated E For Everyone
I skipped my last class today to make sure I could get my pre order in. Also pre ordered Pikmin 3 and Zombie U.
That was pretty dumb reason to miss a class. Couldn't you pre-ordered it after class??? It isn't like they are going to disappear in hours
Bayonetta 2 probably helped a lot, it created a huge buzz about the system
It sure did. I welled up and squealed... I did too.
Very disappointed about the price and some of the launch games. Looks like I'll be on my PS3 the rest of this year playing new exclusive title's.
It's a next gen console despite what many naysayers believe. 350 is awesome for a next gen console. Xbox 360 and PS3 both launched for more.
except it's not really next gen, its the next generation in terms of new hardware but when the new consoles arrive wii U will be considered a weird console halfway between the generations.
@theLyonKing Except hardware wise it is. IBMs power 7 chip, and one of AMDs GPGPUs which was first released last year. By your definition then, we could infer that the Xbox 360 and PS3, when first released were not true next gen either. This is because the GPUs in both of those systems were already out of date(especially the PS3s... Cell and its' SPUs make up for a lot of the GPUs shortcomings). If you look at architecture, and specifically the focus on increasing bandwidth of specifically the CPU and GPU performance, the Wii U is quite impressive. I have no doubt that the PS4 and Nextbox will be more powerful. However, I don't think the gap will be comparable to Wii and PS360. I think the differences may likely only become apparent in nextbox or PS4 exclusives. Most games will likely look pretty much the same. Only PCs retain cutting edge tech. Though with PCs we are okay with spending a lot of money. Console gamers don't want to. Which is why there is always a cost/performance balance that needs to be struck. Heck I'm waiting for the new pile driver CPUs to release next month. I'll probably be dropping 300 on one of those CPUs alone! It should be noted that, that is not terrible expensive in the realm of PCs, at least while comparing to Intel's current offerings.
Why do all the Nintendo fans have anime avatars?
I can't see avatars on Mobile n4g(it runs better than the full site) so I never noticed such a thing...
Some stupid gamers whine that Wii U's $299 price tag is insanely expensive and unreasonable!. LOL I say that Wii U's prices was indeed right and reasonable, maybe haters just love to bash a new product just to satisfy themselves lol.. I believe that a $299 console is just fine, if they cannot afford it, they should go get a job rather than whining lol.. A bunch of crying babies are here in N4G lately..
If you want to overpay for a current gen system that's your business.
I still can't believe people still think it's current gen. IBM Power 7 with it's awesome edram/AMD GPGPU means extremely high bandwidth and performance. I swear, kids these days don't know anything about architecture, or the effort it takes to learn a new architecture when a programmer has to run software in a very specific environment.
Seriously. Consoles really aren't that expensive. I own them all. If you want something, you budget accordingly!
I preordered mine right after Gamestop opened. There were a few people before me preordering too. As I left there was a line forming with people talking about the WiiU. As I drove to school I passed by a Gamestop in town that had a line stretched outside. I dont know if they were there for the WiiU but I am pretty sure they were. I know at least 6 other people who are going to preorder it tomorrow. So in my area I know there are quite a few people getting it.
Damn-it, I can't decide if I want this thing at launch or wait it out! Decisions, decisions... Agree for YES; Disagree for NO...
