Nintendo's Troll Trouble

Every analyst is entitled to a point of view, and there is certainly some negative Wii U stuff floating around that makes a fair point. However it’s worrisome that so much of the nonsensical stuff comes from mainstream news sources, which will make up many consumers’ primary source of info on the new console. So with that in mind, here’s a few of the more extreme arguments I’ve seen in the last few weeks, and why I think they’re bogus.

The PS3 had the same thing and the solution will be the same thing: The exclusives, not the multiplatform games, will show The Wii's power.

"It can do what last gen consoles can do" will be the only answer from most 2nd and 3rd party developers.

What Nintendo can do to not make the same mistakes as Sony is to make sure they have good publishing tools so that the games will run so well that Wii U will be the platform of choice to design from.

Haters gonna hate.

If nobody was talking about or hating on the Wii U, you'd know Nintendo had done something wrong.

#1 console for 2nd gen in a row, you heard it here first.

My body is ready.

shutUpAndTakeMyMoney1404d ago (Edited 1404d ago )

lets hope wiiU is like wii right? or gamecube? or N64?

Hicken1404d ago (Edited 1404d ago )

Because there are never any legitimate reasons, right?

Edit: Nintendo gets the "brunt" of nothing. Nothing negative, anyway. The most negativity they get is wondering why they don't get anything negative.

Edit 2:

@maniac: you know what "brunt" means, right? It means the overwhelming majority. Nintendo does NOT get the brunt of negativity around here. Out of the Big Three, Nintendo has quite possibly the most favorable view, particularly here on N4G.

@LevelHead: We're talking about Nintendo, aren't we? If I started talking about Sony, you'd say, "Why don't you talk about the subject at hand, which is Nintendo?" But since I didn't bring them up at all, you just had to, right? Downplay? What Sony negative have I downplayed? Or have I simply expressed my opinion on what I believe to be unfair criticism the company has and continues to suffer at the hands of gamers and gaming "journalists?"

@Ben Grimm: So sad. The best you could do was make a failed attempt at throwing my comment back at me? Not even the same situation, especially considering I'm directly addressing both the article AND the comment I'm responding to. But acknowledging that would invalidate your stance, so you can't do that, huh? Try again, lad.

Of course there are legitimate reasons to criticize Nintendo. Just like there are also legitimate criticisms for Sony and Microsoft and just about any publisher of any video game product. Everything is open to criticism.

However there's criticism and then there's incessant hatred and for whatever reason Nintendo seems to get the brunt of it when there are not constant articles about red rings of death or hack attacks.

Microsoft get a free pass cause they're american

ronin4life1404d ago

@Bit
Microsoft gets a free pass here lately because they are seen as largely irrelevant, which itself is not exactly a good thing...

maniacmayhem1404d ago (Edited 1404d ago )

@Hicken
Maybe I'm not reading your post right, or maybe you are being sarcastic but did you say imply that Nintendo gets no negative articles?

Yea,that has to be a sarcastic remark because only a blind man could not notice the negative artciles towards WiiU and Nintendo lately.

BrutallyBlunt1404d ago

Hicken, there is also legitimate reasons for Sony as well. Difference is you will downplay those issues when it's related to Sony.

There have been lots of negative articles surrounding the Wii U and the same people who vent about the negativity surrounding Sony don't seem to share the same views when it's to do with Nintendo and ESPECIALLY Microsoft. Some members on N4G are very easy to spot that are totally biased. It's too bad too since you would think we all share the same interests, videogames.

Ben_Grimm1404d ago

So little content in your comments on Nintendo. Interesting.

I don't even know where to begin addressing this most recent error of yours, except to say that, if you were a dog, I'd roll up an encyclopedia and hit you on the nose with it. I'll wager you were trying to be funny, but... it just wasn't.

Game cube outsold the PS2?

Instigator1404d ago (Edited 1404d ago )

He's predicting that the Wii U will sell the most next gen like the Wii did this gen, hence the "2nd gen in a row". I neither agree nor disagree with that, because regardless of who sell the most I think the all three are gonna be close this time around. Kind of like the PS3 and 360 currently are.

All three selling 60-80 million each seems realistic and should be considered successful. Not everyone can sell PS2 or Wii numbers.

Erm, just close your room door before you start, mate.

@fourtwenty2009

i clicked disagree because sales aren't what determines who "wins" a generation, and a good majority of the wii's game library is garbage shovelware.

AWBrawler1404d ago (Edited 1404d ago )

Oh how I love this lame ass argument, because the GameCube had higher rated games than the PS2, and as for as then gen goes, check out the two highest rated games

Troll's Body's aren't ready. It's as simple as that. That is why Reggie knows best. :-)
