Call Of Duty And The Future Of The Wii U

When Activision revealed Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 for Wii U, it marked a potential turning point for Nintendo. For years now, Nintendo has been host to a number stripped-down second rate ports of Call of Duty games. As compared to its HD console counterparts, the Wii versions of Call of Duty games were always severely handicapped by the system’s underwhelming processing power and lackluster online support. With the Wii U, this is no longer the case. For the first time in years, a Nintendo console will truly have the full Call of Duty experience.

This by no means implies that the Wii U version of Black Ops 2 will be as successful as either the Xbox 360 or PS3 versions of the game, and it would be foolish to make that assumption. However, that doesn’t lessen the importance of the opportunity that Nintendo faces. When it comes to Black Ops 2 on the Wii U, it’s not about sales numbers for Nintendo; it’s about making a statement.

Highness, I'm never buying another Nintendo. Sony/Microsoft is where it's at. I highly doubt all of my Ps3/Xbox friends will switch therefore; I won't switch. The Wii U is just like very Nintendo console, behind the competition.

If behind means selling more then your competition then sure, I suppose Nintendo is indeed behind Ms/Sony. As far as you being THAT influenced by your friends when it comes to purchasing a videogame machine, hey that's your own choice I can see why you would wanna play with friends but by no means does that same effect come into play with single player games but to each his own.

Maybe he meant for online experience.

I'm not sure COD should be a wiiu seller. Sure, if you get a Wiiu and want it, sure...buy it. But there is no point in buying a console just for COD.

Wii U is the System Nintendo always wanted to make. All the way back to the Gamecube.

* We get Nintendo Quality games

* We also get the HD games and FPS and other popular games now as well

* Now we get all the " nintendo themed " games but in much better graphics.

Imagine how good Mario Kart U or Mario U will look (3D like N64 mario )

I agree
The Wii U is HD capable, there's a controller for the traditionalist whom prefer a "controller with two sticks (classic pro controller)," and Nintendo's refining their online service.

A lot of Jaded Nintendo fans, might actually give the Wii U a shot ( or try it out, at least).

it should be about sales numbers too because the wiiu version is going to be superior....but there are too many 13 year old haters who will not focus on the game and pluses but just that its on the wiiu and they dont want nintendo to win next gen so more crying take place for them....that's what it really is all about.....because nintendo has everything going right with the wiiu, social and tvii
