Wii U is the most innovative system on Earth: ZombiU creative director

ZombiU Creative Director Jean-Phillipe Caro has refused to take credit for reinventing the survival horror genre with his new game, insisting that they've only been able to make the Wii U launch game because of the Wii U. A machine he calls "the most innovative on Earth."

(a little about me, huge nintendo fanboy)
i agree too

it can use 3 types of controllers
one with a screen (wich includes gyros, cameras, NFC etc, motion controller, traditional controller

( a neat thing is that you dont have to buy new sets of controllers, just use the ones from your previous console, i thank nintendo for that)

console that you can play away from the tv and on the toilet is enough for me xD

BUT it all depends on the developers to come up with ideas to use that

which sadly is minimal at best

most just shoe-in ideas and ignore others

Yeah it definitely is, anyone who disgree's simply doesn't know what innovation is. Nintendo have always been at the forefront of video game innovation. Too bad about them ditching the hardcore with the Wii...had far too few hardcore games imo. Even though the ones they did have were awesome (favorites/Xenobalade, Monster hunter tri, Marioanything, zelda, Smash bros)


Yeah your right Tonester, unforunately no one will ever take advantage of that. Has this discussion before. Nintendo Wii had Motion control as it's main control thingy. That's why it was taken advantage of so much(not that I liked it, I think Motion control was a waste). Now Wii U has this controller at it's core. It Will be utilized alot of the time. No dev is going to make a game that requires two separate systems to play, it's too risky money wise. Even multi plats are using the controller for something now. AC3 for example

*raises hand*

ooohh ooooh its teh more polygons a characters have teh more innovation it is! :B

Losyak2249d ago

No disrespect, but in what universe are mario, zelda and smash bros hardcore games???

DigitalAnalog2249d ago

I'd really hate to be in your universe.

neogeo2248d ago

Looks like the PS Vita can do the same things as the Wii U lol

Ilovetheps42249d ago

But do any games use it that way? I remember the PSP being used in a similar way on a racing game. The PSP was the controller and the rearview mirror was shown on the PSP screen. I'm not sure if that game ever had that feature or not.

And while I'm sure the Vita has the capability to act a similar way as the Wii U controller, will developers use it that way often? From what I'm seeing, I don't think so. They just release the same game for Vita and you can transfer save data between systems.

Except sell

zebramocha2249d ago

@Lluv resistance retribution has a wiiu kind of connectivity and lbp ps vita.

stragomccloud2249d ago

Possible, but it just won't.
Great example of this is back during the gamecube days, you could plug in the GBA to the gamecube, and it could do some cool things, but a lot of the times you really needed a second person to tell you about what is on the screen, or you needed several GBAs to play certain games in order to have full functionality. The functionality was there, but the support simply wasn't. And this is the problem with vita. The cost of entry is too high, and therefore developers will be hesitant to support the device lest Sony lends a hand.

Ilovetheps42249d ago


Resistance allowed you to use a PS3 controller to play a PSP game. That is nothing like what the Wii U does.

As for LBP, I will agree that it is similar to the Wii U. I just don't think that the feature is used enough. There's only a handful of games that support the feature.

tachy0n2249d ago


yes we can use all games in remote play through a hack.

damn u sony for limiting the potential of the PSVita.

i believe this and i also agree that the Wii U is the most innovative way to play and have a new gaming experience give it to Nintendo to break new ground and others try to follow.

shutUpAndTakeMyMoney2249d ago (Edited 2249d ago )

I remember sony showing ps3 to psp gameplay before wiiU with
Ridge Racer!!!

I remember this before kinect.

I remember wiiMote before the wii!

Sony sucks at marketing that is all.

They are innovative? ok sony makes innovative games nintendo milks these childish characters.

Also wiiU is under powered..

"DICE's Rendering Architect Johan Andersson has warned that some of his company's 2013 games using the Frostbite engine will need the extra bits as a matter of course. In other words, it won't matter if you have a quad Core i7 gaming PC of death should the software be inadequate; if you're still running a 32-bit copy of Windows 7 come the new year, you won't be playing. The developer points to memory as the main culprit, as going 64-bit guarantees full access to 4GB or more of RAM as well as better virtual addressing." - Dice

I like nintendo going hardcore again but it's a shame that wiiU is weak.

pc players already have 4gb+ ram & 1gb+ vRam.

ChickeyCantor2249d ago (Edited 2249d ago )

"Also wiiU is under powered..
Proof. "

That is no proof. If it's dedicated they can pull off a lot on the Wii-u. Wii-U games don't suffer from many api layers.

"pc players already have 4gb+ ram & 1gb+ vRam."

With that said, you think the PS4/nextbox will surpass the PC?

ronin4life2249d ago (Edited 2249d ago )

The wiiu is innovative by being an all inclusive console with its tech, but this doesn't make it the most innovative ever in my books. And its tech is not original, even if it being integrated as a dedicated experience is. This is true.
The WiiU being underpowered and "childish characters" statement are not.

SonyNGP2249d ago

Bullshit. That "Wii remote before the Wii" video came out 4 years after the Wii was released. You didn't remember jack shit.

ChunkyLover532249d ago

The Eytoy was basically a webcam, it can still be used as a webcam to this day.

Do you think Nintendo just came up with the idea for the Wii Mote and put it out the next day? Nintendo had patents and R&D on motion controls before the launch of the Gamecube.

Nintendo is known for some of the most loved characters and games of all time, calling them kiddie doesn't change the facts.

You cant compare what is in a PC, which has to run operating systems and all kinds of other features, so they actually need more RAM, game consoles really only need enough to run games, yet Nintendo put in extra to help run other features as well.

Its nice that you are a fanboy and all, but stop being so delusional.

mamotte2249d ago

I remember using the DS in RockBand Wii, the GBA with the Gamecube, the Pokemon Gameboy cartdriges in the N64, the Gameboy games in the SNES, and the power gauntlet in the NES.

Nintendo always innovates when it comes to new ways to play unlike some companies that add movie formats and get called innovative

MySwordIsHeavenly2249d ago

That "movie format" allowed developers to put their entire game on one disc.

Sort of like the addition of CD on the PS1...

Or the DVD on PS2...

Storage space is a pretty important thing, man.

ninjabake2249d ago

Yeah it is but the PS1 wasn't the first system to do so. The 3DO and saturn had that format before the PS1 and the Sega CD add on also supported it. But I agree with you for the most part.

neogeo2248d ago

Love my Turbo Graphics 16CD!
not joking. 1988 in the house. I don't seem to remember any PS1 then.

DivineAssault 2248d ago

They do always innovate.. Maybe they should be like madcatz & do accessories or sega & make software only..

playlikemario2249d ago

see here is what a new way to play means to me, i get to have asymmetric gameplay which is something that i never experienced before and from my gaming experience. Nintendo has always changed how people interact with their console and then Microsoft and Playstation would follow behind and try to alter what Nintendo started by adding different ways but not new. so basically i am saying that i do not own a 360 or a PS3 due to the fact that its the same experience all the time and i like to change things up.

LOL_WUT2248d ago

"So basically i am saying that i do not own a 360 or a PS3 due to the fact that its the same experience all the time and i like to change things up"

I wish you felt this way towards Nintendo's games. Innovative or not I can't wait to play this game!

ninjabake2249d ago

So far Its pretty hard to dispute that the Wii U is the most innovative system to date. We'll see what MS and Sony have cooked up once they finally arrive but for now the wii u is the most exciting.
