Man this guy talks some crap lol, looks like he is stoned or sniffed up.
bet he has a wii U pre ordered aswell

LX-General-Kaos2142d ago (Edited 2142d ago )

It is unfortunate that he thinks of it that way. I guess the great gaming crusade will have to carry on without him. Maybe an exclusive gaming experience will come along down the line to make him think otherwise.

LOGICWINS2142d ago (Edited 2142d ago )

I don't think the Wii U will be "trash", but I can't blame someone for having that perception. I saw my first Wii U commercial the other day, and its being marketed like a Fisher Price toy. The kids playing it in the commercial were like 10. It also had that generic music you'd hear from lasertag commercials in the 90s.

EDIT:

This is the one I'm talking about. I understand that Nintendo has a younger audience that MUST be taken into account, but if your selling a $300-350 console, your first marketing priority should be adult gamers that HAVE money.

Parents won't understand why they need to get their tween a $300 gaming console so he/she can replay Mario for the 7th time.

Also, why does Nintendo think that modern American families only have ONE household television?

Hellsvacancy2142d ago

That is a rather unappealing advertisement, from the perspective of an adult gamer

Nintendo know there market, and that market will be pestering there parents for it at Christmas

No there is always a reason to blame ignorance.

It takes a really idiot to not look at the amount of 3rd party support (and people like Ubi had multiple devs working on Wii U games...Ubi Quebec, Ubi Paris, etc). Activiision, Bioware, EA, WB, Gearbox, etc, etc, etc.

One has to be a moron not to think it won't have hardcore games if they can't read a launch window and see...zombies, call of duty, aliens, mass effect, etc.

This guy didn't learn about the system from the commercial, so whatever the commercial was didn't give him that viewpoint. He already had it preordered which confirms it. But c'mon a guy in the industry had a bias, no commercial will sway that.

Parents will know, because they had NES. Nintendo has been selling systems for what about 27 years now? So every 45 and under was exposed to a NES as a kid. Which are the people buying systems for their kids. Why do people think parent won't know? It's one of the main reasons the Wii did good, because it captured lightning in the bottle at a time when their original market was having kids or had them. Same goes now, probably even more so. Parents will know. Hell many grandparents will know because they bought the now parents the NES/SNES for their kids.

I think the screen switching is mostly that people attach their console to the BEST tv, usually the biggest. Thus the off TV gameplay is geared at the ability to not hog up the 40-70 inch screen most people have these days. Sure many will have a 26-32 inch, but if you have both, or even a 40 and a 55 inch, which one are you going to hook up the system to? So people always want their stuff on the best tv. For television or for gaming. Conflicts erupt, this helps alleviate that.

Especially poorer people, which there are a ton and the number is growing every day, and won't stop until Glass-Steagall is passed and many other things. (not happening with Obama...and woudln't of happened under Romney). So at least four more years of economic collapse.

Referencing Wii U as a 'Great Gaming Crusade' or something?.... Lol, LX-General, yous funneh.

@ LOGICWINS

I do admit that the commercials could have been a lot better, but this is studdering Craig. He has likely seen things way beyond any commercial, and what he had seen up till now just isn't his style.

Even with those commercials, I don't think Nintendo will have a hard time selling the platform. Word will quickly get around that Mario is not the only game available.

LOGICWINS2142d ago (Edited 2142d ago )

Initially, it will do well. That's a given. Long term is the issue. It could just be me, but the only launch exclusive I see thats worth buying is ZombieU. Hopefully, I'm wrong, but I don't see the Wii U doing very well going into 2013. It seems to be resting its laurels on the fact that you'll eventually get your Zeldas, Metroids...but you'll also be able to play high profile multiplatform titles. I personally don't see that as being enough IMO.

LX-General-Kaos2142d ago (Edited 2142d ago )

Yea who knows what will happen going into 2013, but as for multiplatform titles there are a few 3rd party exclusives in the mix as well. Rayman Legends, Wonderful 101, ZombiU, and Bayonetta 2 come to mind as of right now. I am sure there are many other 3rd party exclusives down the pipeline. With that said I don't believe it's fair to say that Nintendo is "resting its laurels". The platform has not even released yet and there is already a numerous amount of exclusive content ready for the launch window. Nintendo and non Nintendo.

DivineAssault 2141d ago

I agree with u but knowing that games like Zelda & Metroid will eventually come is more than enough reason for ppl to spend the $300+ for a console.. I just dont see anything im interested in yet n $60 for the titles it does have coming is way too much to me.. Ports n shovel ware w full price tags.. Theres a couple new good games but nothing i see thats system worthy

chadboban2142d ago

Well that is his opinion and he's entitled to it, I'm not gonna personally attack the man for having an opinion. Not everyone's gonna love the Wii U. Same way not everyone is gonna love the PS3,360 or whatever Microsoft and Sony's next consoles are going to be. But hey I'm still getting a Wii U, same way I'm gonna get a PS4. And hey if Microsoft shows off some great exclusives, maybe I'll get a 720.

The point is even though I plan to get a Wii U, I don't expect everyone to like the console nor will I try to make them like it. Just enjoy what you play folks.

The_Klank2142d ago

Bubbles for being an actual living breathing level headed gamer.

SlavisH22142d ago

well he gets my vote, DAMN!
