To wrap up our Wii U launch comparison articles, we’ll show you how the amount of games stacks up to every console since the PlayStation 2. - Trendy Gamers
wow. i didnt remember the ps2 having that many launch games!
It definitely has a lot of launch titles
That's for sure.
Great games as well. I haven't seen a launch lineup this good for consoles since last generation. Definitely beats 360, Wii and PS3.
I guess when half of your lineup consists of games already released on another system, it'll have that perk.
I know, too bad we all loved playing them on our 360s and PS3s months ago!
And 10x as many ports >_>
Get used to it as the next 2 new consoles from the other 2 will be 80% ports no doubt >_>
>implying that the gap between the Wii U and the ps3/360 is even remotely near the one between ps3/360 and Wii. hint: It isn't.
Guess what PS3 launch titles were ports of PS2 and XBOX games same as 360 launch titles.
Cool.. @ least theres a decent amount of options to chose from.. Buy one game to accompany the system & rent the others to keep content until the good ones start flowing in
Scribblenauts and Zombie U look good. Couldn't care less about the rest. New Super Mario Bro's U looks terribly lazy...& I thought Nintendo land was gonna be free. I'll wait til it gets more games
my concern is that Nintendo is gonna use this formula for making WiiU games: 1:mario 2:mario 3:metroid 4:mario 5:mario 6:zelda 7:mario 8:smash Bros 9:mario 10:mario how much longer can nintendo use the same IP's and be successful?
It has always been that way with Nintendo.
that's why i'm concerned.
Uncharted uncharted LBP LBP GOW GOD Uncharted GT ?? Or for M$ fans Halo Halo Gears Gears Forza Forza Gears Kinectimals They all do it. I for one can't wait for the new smash. or a New Prime Game.
Sony has new IP's up the wazoo. Microsoft...true.
You neglect the fact that Sony releases more new IP's every year than Nintendo has released in the past six years.
Or .. Resistance Uncharted LBP GOW GT Heavy Rain infamous Ratchet & Clank Warhawk Twisted Metal Killzone etc... etc... Not too mention all the multiplats that never made their way to the Wii. Nintendo is lacking the games that PS and Xbox have had this gen. They hit a nitch and caught fire but people have started calling a spade a spade and all Nintendo can do is regurgitate Mario, Zelda, and Metroid like they have for almost 30 years! SNES was the last real great Nintendo system.
Mario Metroid Zelda Smash Bros Fire Emblem Punch Out Pokemon Kirby Donkey Kong F-Zero Kid Icarus Golden Sun Pikmin Animal Crossing - Nintendo's got just as many IPs to use as any. And mind you between the 3DS, DS, and Wii they all of these franchises last generation.
The thing with Sony is they do not have any original IP's to speak of. Everything they offer has already been done before. Wii U has Wonderful 101 something new that hasnt been on the market before. With Sony you cant name a single IP that isnt based off of an already existing IP. UNcharted=Tomb Raider GOW=DMC LBP=Mario All Stars=SSBB TLOU=RE REsistence=Halo and the list goes on and on You Sony fanboys are going to have a bad week/year if you are already this desperate to downplay the most powerful console on the market.(Note ot fanboys, I'm not saying power matters but you have for the past 7 years so just stating a fact) I'm sure when $ony announces its Wii U clone all the hate will change and when PS4 launches with ports, ports will suddenly be a good thing. Man it must a be a sad sight at your houses right now. Parents wondering why you are screaming and crying into your pillow.
oh yeah, sure ignore Kid Icarus, Steel Diver, Professor Layton, Xenoblade, Monster Hunter, Bayonetta 2, Ninja Gaiden, and other games that Nintendo are publishing. Again why is it with a Nintendo console we always forget 3rd parties??
Iwata has already said they will.almost certainly maintain a 1 nsmb cap per system. So the only other Mario to be released would be a 3d one. Of course, there are plenty of new ip planned as well. Mistwalker and retro are hard at work. Then there are all the strong 3rd party collaborations they are working on... like platinum games and capcom. Really, your worry is groundless. And one sided; Nintendo is FAR from a solitary guilty party in constant popular releases.
Apple is doing it.
Pretty impressive. It seems like there's been a lot of effort to get an extensive line-up together - both hardcore and casual.
Looking at the PS2 launch it had many ports tho.
it seems like 2-4 of them are ports.
Ninty faithfull will buy. Some wii customers will buy. 40mill sales.
One things for sure, Nintendo seems to have a pretty big chunk of third party devs eating out of their hands.
I hope majority of them not shovelwares.
Zombie U Mario Bros U Assasins Creed III BLACK OPS, sorry can't remember the full list for the Wii U and I don't remember PS2 have that many either
I have my console resevered for launch but the only game I will be picking up is Mario bros. The rest do not look that good or I already own them on a diff console.
i was hoping it was going to release with 1 new ip from retro.
