560 People Are Playing Black Ops II Online on the Wii U Right Now

Kotaku - Call of Duty: Black Ops II is now out on the Wii U. It's just not being played online that much. Too many people still at work or in school? Console too new? People drawn to other Wii U games? Everyone distracted by the surprisingly terrific Miiverse? (Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, Wii U)

Wow, u got down voted only because you showed the truth... this website is fulfilled with retarded sony fanboys that down vote anything that is not against nintendo.
Neonridr  +   618d ago

@pedroyamato

I don't know. I see plenty of retarded fanboys on here that have no love for Sony whatsoever, but believe what you want.

Many parents bought this console as a Christmas gift, and they probably won't get to open it till Christmas.
DivineAssault  +   618d ago
Are you saying that the majority of ppl who intend to play this game on wii u are children getting it as a gift from their parents? i doubt parents will buy this game for kids if they even know this system exists yet..

I doubt many wii u owners will play games beyond 1st party offerings but if there is a high selling 3rd party title, this would be it.. It can sell on any platform for some odd reason

The line where I was at there was this child who had been waiting there since 5pm (I've NO idea how he convinced his parents, seemed like a nice kid, but he might've been spoiled). Needless to say he was the only child there out of 8 people in line.
AzaziL  +   618d ago
Well at least there's a chance of being in the top 100 on the leaderboards, not like the PS360 where a quarter million people were already prestiged on day 1.
HarryMasonHerpderp  +   618d ago
lol I noticed that.
If you prestige in one day I'm sorry but you need to get a life!
CerebralAssassin  +   618d ago
They coulda had the day off...
Summons75  +   618d ago
@cerebralassassin

but 90% of cod players are in middle school and early high school and it was a school day so unless if last Tuesday had the biggest skip rate in history then most of them were in school....
WetN00dle69  +   618d ago
Yeah the game is 60 bucks and for you not to enjoy the game is just plain stupid. I dont know about you guys but i buy my games to play them instead of sitting in front of my PC posting in N4G and calling the day one prestige no lifers.

@HarryMasonHerpderp........You've never had a 18+ hour gaming session?
I mean, who hasn't?
SuperShyGuy  +   618d ago
I have to say I am totally SHOCKED that so few people are online compared to the other versions...........

even though it is only 2 days old and only has been released in one region verse 70 million worldwide
rezzah  +   618d ago
last i saw on the PS3 there was 560k online.
bubblebeam  +   618d ago
Hmmm, maybe Nintendo fans have a better taste in games? ;)
The_Infected  +   618d ago
That was the same thing I was thinking:)
bubblebeam  +   618d ago
Hhahaha no I was being sarcastic. Good to see some people got their knickers in a knot!

In all honesty, the first thing you'd do if you were buying a new NINTENDO console would be to buy a Nintendo game. If they wanted to play CoD, then they would already have a PC/360/PS3 to play it on.

EDIT: @Pygme

I am also loving them. I am rubbing my nipples in pure joy because of them.

Loving those disagrees, it's cool to bash COD until someone writes something like this.
metroid32  +   618d ago
Maybe its because the wii had watered down ports and now wiiu has the definitive version its going to be word of mouth and not to mention the wiiu has been out a day so 560 players is good Vita gamers cant find any1 online ? Plus wiiu is only out in the US wait for Europe and UK ect there will be 10,000 online come christmas and tht number will climb when gamers see that if u want the smoothest ride its on wiiu.

Most people bought 2-4 games. I'll be checking the in console stats out any way of other games. A lot of other games where bought also. On top of it all lots of wii gamers play the story out first. Online is for boredom.
enkeixpress  +   618d ago
I honestly don't like the Wii U.. there's just something about it that's just so... Bleh.

ape007  +   618d ago
opps ma bad, thx anyways
Neonridr  +   618d ago
I'd say more people are playing Mario or ZombiU right now.
Octavarium94  +   618d ago
lol thats a higher number than I was expecting to be honest!
ape007  +   618d ago
i think nobody bought the wiiu because of black ops 2, everybody already have ps3 and 360 for it(DUH) most WIIU people now are playing nintendo lands and new super mario U, remember how well NSMB sold on wii

I love the way Kotaku keeps putting up anti Nintendo articles they just love hating on nintendo the console has been out 2 days s... Give it time thats whats wrong with game sites theses days even the journalist are fan boys / trolls I got mines on sunday and I'm surprised at how great the screen quality is the games look like there in 1080p on the wiipad when there not And I got call of duty on 360 and wii u and wii u version looks and plays better
metroid32  +   618d ago
I know its beter on wiiu youtube shows that better graphics better everything END OF.
shackdaddy  +   618d ago
Kotaku is full of Sony/Nintendo haters.
momthemeatloaf  +   618d ago
The Nintendo audience doesn't care about cod. Moms are not gonna buy a 17 rated game for their 10 yr old
Summons75  +   618d ago
you say that and yet 90% of the cod population on 360 and ps3 are all 10,11,12 year olds....
TemplarDante  +   618d ago
The average age of a COD player is 13.
Or the mental age of 13.
Griffin4871  +   618d ago
Zing
meatnormous  +   618d ago
I still think that age is a little high. I was playing the other day and had my life threatened. The kid said thank god I didn't live in Ohio, but I told him I did and I am from the columbus area. He got real quiet real fast after he found out we were less than 10 miles apart.
metroid32  +   618d ago
Yeah alright mate out of the 30 games how many are for kids/mums???? I know maybe 3/4 the rest are 16/18 rated games.
MasterCratosKong66  +   618d ago
you'd be suprised
mrbojingles  +   618d ago
Calm down guys. 48 hours in and we're talking about stuff like this? Also, Kotaku really should check to see how many reviews Black Ops 2 has on the eShop or how many people are talking about it on Miiverse, because it's much bigger than the 560 number
TemplarDante  +   618d ago
Oh my God, Really? But Miiverse is communist, how do they without mentioning words like :
Kill
Headshot.
Shot.
Gun.
Shoot.

Alternativley, the COD lingo such as:

"I will teabag you"
"I just as% Ra%&t@d you"
"What the F*%K?!?!?!?"

Etc etc.

Is it possible to discuss any game rated T for Teen and above with Nintendo police on the prowl?
ronin4life  +   618d ago
I saw a guy write a cartoon that contained the phrase "sucks balls".

Wether or not this was reported I don't know...
@.@

" So, COD BO2 sales for Wii U doesnt go into Bobby Koticks swiss bank account, but directly to his wallet as petty cash :)"

But that's where all the CoD profits go anyway...

Lol.

If I'd just bought a new system, the last game I'd be looking to play is a port of a game I've been playing the last 5 years. Plus, you want to play COD with friends, more likely to find more of them still on PC/PS3/360.
KMCROC54  +   618d ago
Those are lame excuse Halo 4, BLOPS 2 both lunched during the week & both had tons of people online playing, this makes me think they over hyped it or thought everyone that had a wii was going to run out to buy a Wii U or people who
had already plyed these games were going to rush to get a console w/
launch titels that are ports .

ronin4life  +   618d ago
There are millions of Xboxs in peoples houses. There are tens of thousands of wiius in peoples houses.

That is a huge number disparity.... so I hope you weren't really expecting Halo numbers...

And of course, the wiiu is new with loads of games, so the reletively few exsisting owners are spread out among several titles and not just the 1-2 newest ones.n
edonus  +   618d ago
I saw CODBLOPS2 in a video review and someone was playing it with a Wiimote and nunchuk and it looked really good. I dont even like COD but it looked really good. Its the first thing I saw that has impressed me about the WiiU at all so far.
shackdaddy  +   618d ago
Ya. I saw that too. Looks really accurate to use the wiimote even though when I tried an FPS game on the wii, it was a horrible experience.

Maybe I'll try it out. Not sure...
sitharrefus  +   618d ago
Well a lot of the Wii U's are being saved for christmas gifts so im sure the number will increase, there is not need to worry!
Munnkyman  +   618d ago
That number will go up. Just so many games at the same time is going to eat up lots of time between games.
josephayal  +   618d ago
Good Numbers tbh
ylwzx3  +   618d ago
The problem here is that BO2 came out before the Wii U was released so its not a surprise it won't sell as many since most have already adopted it..
