There's no future for the Wii U, it's dead on arrival, its traditional market has now been dominated by PS3 and 360s, the price is high and additional expensive storage is needed.
It's very tough for the consumer to justify a new system that's going to cost him around $400, and $60 for each game, when there are cheaper PS3s with the same functionality and hundreds of stellar games for 10, 20 dollars and whole series for $40.

NOW REPLACE THE WORD
Wii U with PS Vita
PS3 with smartphone
and 360 with tablet

Cricket bat is the wiiU mascot?
MasterCornholio  +   1013d ago
Im sorry sir but you need to buy the Wiimote in order to use the cricket bat.

Have a Glorious day.

LOL just kidding but this game has been getting extremely mixed reviews. Either they think that the Wii U controller is being implemented in an amazing way or it shoves so many gimmicks in the players face that it ruins it.
wastedcells  +   1012d ago
I'm still getting it only now I'm prepared to be disappointed. Hopefully going in with low expectations will only make the game seems that much better if I truly enjoy it.
CommonSense  +   1012d ago
I'm playing it. I like it a lot. Creates a really great atmosphere.
dboyc310  +   1012d ago
What is the story? Does it just have you doing random mission? Does it have a core plot? The more reviews I read the more disappointed I am. I truly wanted the wii u to buy this game but from the looks of it I'm not jumping on the bandwagon yet until I see the killer app.
showtimefolks  +   1012d ago
Every console launch there maybe only select few games that are actually good because most of the times you can tell development team was working on a new console. Ps3 had resistance and than heavenly sword and rest were bad ports or just bad games

So dont loose hope in a few years wiiu should be producing quality titles but that's if it continues to get 3rd party support
The Great Melon  +   1012d ago
The problem with the Wii U is that any third party support will likely mean multiplatform games that are tweaked for the console. That won't get people to buy a Wii U if they already have a PS3 or Xbox 360. Exclusives will be even more important for the Wii U than a normal console launch due to well established competition that compete similarly with it.

The only game for the consol that had me interested and its not getting great reviews so my Wii U interest is very slim right now. To be quite honest, Nintendo needs more than already released ported games and one or 2 ok reviewed hardcore games to draw in the PS3 and Xbox 360 hardcore gamer crowd. Why on earth would any PS3 hardcore gamer want a Wii U right now with GOW:A, The Last of Us, Beyond, GTA5 and MGS:GZ coming next year.
darkziosj  +   1012d ago
It's NOT MIXED if the 80% of reviewers gave it a bad score
neogeo  +   1013d ago
oh crap
LOGICWINS  +   1013d ago
So much for IGN being biased towards Nintendo consoles. If they were paid off, they would have at least given it a 7.5
Muffins1223  +   1013d ago
It saddens me that people acully agreed with your comment.
Gamer1982  +   1012d ago
Nintendo first party mate is the general consensus. ZombieU isn't that and the games actually rumored to be coming to PS3 in 2013.
Blastoise  +   1013d ago
I thought this was gonna be Wii U's best game. Looks like it's Mario again lol
Jinkies  +   1013d ago
"Looks like it's Mario again lol"

But then again the only reason it got a high score is because it is "Mario". It's an upgraded version of the Wii game with a HD lick of paint.
Y_5150  +   1013d ago
@Jinkies I'm happy that it's like that. The Wii version is my favorite out of the three that I've played! Also There's some great changes from just watching gameplay you'll see it. The only thing I don't like is the soundtrack, it sounds exactly the same as previous games which that's not really what Mario games should have.
Gamer1982  +   1012d ago
Its sad that there's something like 100 Mario games and they still sell well. Especially the 2D ones outside of portable consoles. I'm sorry but no matter what it looks like I cannot justify paying £40 for a 2D game anymore. Its lazy developing. Where is Mario Galaxy 3 for WiiU? That should have been launched with the console rather than another 2D iteration. Which lets be honest is there to hold off the fans until they make one.
chadboban  +   1013d ago
Wow, reviews are just all over the place on this one.
gemugurl  +   1013d ago
It's crazy!!
guitarded77  +   1013d ago
Yeah, when there all over the place it's usually a game for a select group of people. If my system software update ever finishes downloading I'll find out for myself. I want to be playing Wii U, but I'm reading about Wii U while my download finishes.
seanpitt23  +   1013d ago
To be fair I was totally not expecting this for some reason.
MASTER_RAIDEN  +   1012d ago
im surprised to hear anyone say they werent expecting this. not to seem like a superficial gamer, but just the cover and name alone wreak of a terrible game. the trailers looked alright, but all in all i feel like the game never really shook its sort of laughable trying-to-be-scary-but-lame feel.
granted, ive never played the game, but ive gotta say that i am not at all surprised that this was bargain bin material from day 1.
majiebeast  +   1013d ago
Reviews have been all over the place this year its insane.

bigfish  +   1013d ago
quick, cancel that pre-order!! damn, its not letting me do it!!!!
RustedMan  +   1013d ago
why did you preorder it?
bigfish  +   1013d ago
I meant the Wii U Pre-order.
LOGICWINS  +   1013d ago
LMAO!
esemce  +   1013d ago
Yeah, so glad we in the UK have 12 more days until launch, if the tech specs are also weak then I think I'll cancel my preorder too, I can wait for more games and a price cut. Got plenty of PC/PS3/WII and 360 games I still need to play.
Sanquine90  +   1012d ago
Same here, preordered this...:(
WeskerChildReborned  +   1013d ago
Man i'm still getting this game since it's been getting mixed reviews so their is probably 80% i'll like it.

TemplarDante  +   1013d ago
Uh oh....
Waiting for the "IGNorant" comments to start up..
My advice, not a great game, but if you
1)Love zombie games.
2)Have a sick obsession with zombies, buy it.
StrawberryDiesel420  +   1012d ago
Wrong, my friend's a Nintendo Fanboy and loves zombies and if he says it sucks, it really must suck because that takes a lot for a zombie and nintendo fanboy to say that a zombie game for his new beloved nintendo console sucks, lol.
Summons75  +   1012d ago
How dose one game = the entire life time of the console. He dosent sound like a fanboy at all if you ask me. The concept of the game is really good but it falls short in the combat which is the entirety of the game.
BattleTorn  +   1013d ago
Sweet! Now the game will be cheaper when I side to get it (and the console)
DEATHxTHExKIDx  +   1013d ago
Guess I wont be getting a wiiU just yet. Ill be satisfied playing Mario bros U at my friends house.
Plagasx  +   1013d ago
I think I'm gonna have to play this one for myself seeing how the reviews are all over the place.
mushroomwig  +   1012d ago
Well, that should be the case for any game.

I did not expect to see low scores. Well really its mixed, some gave it a 6 whiles others gave it a 8 or 9.
Brownghost  +   1013d ago
the preview made the game sounds like the best zombie game, then they give that low of a score. Im confused.
cyhm3112  +   1012d ago
the preview was a hype
auragenz  +   1013d ago
Holy orgasmic screaming on every attack Batman.

I can almost hear Adam Sandler saying, now listen close is this two people having sex or two people playing ZombieU.

mochachino  +   1013d ago
So much for killer app.
Jek_Porkins  +   1013d ago
I still bought this game with my Wii U, its getting really mixed reviews, but I wanted something original to go with my New Super Mario Bro's U and some of the other games I bought. Its at least worth a try, seems opinions are mixed at best, which gives me hope.
nikoado  +   1013d ago
The lesson here is, crowbar > cricket bat.
StreetsofRage  +   1012d ago
Interesting. I'm on the fence about buying a Wii U and this was one that I might of picked up. I'm a huge Left 4 Dead fan and this kinda looked like a next gen version. I'll wait on reviews for Bayonetta 2 to make my decision.
Deku-Johnny  +   1012d ago
I haven't seen any mid ranged reviews for this game, they seem to be really high or really low. I guess ZombiU is the Wii U's marmite.
