With its set of problems, but overall - It's a good console, and off tv play sets a new standard for gaming (based on my opinion).

I agree. The WiiU did (continues to) suffer from a lot of problems at launch and really, these should have definitely been ironed out before release but, this rushed launch aside, off tv play is a godsend and is something many gamers have been imagining for a long time. I do think it is a game changer and hopefully, the Wii U will come into its own very soon.

We haven't scratched the surface yet with the Wii U. Remember, it's not just about raw power but how you utilise it. Nintendo have always been on the forefront of innovation and I think we are in store for some great gameplay experiences.

Hatsune-Miku1984d ago

My opinion is that they should address the weak console issues. The games I've played on the Wii u look worst and plays worst than the ones I've played on the xbox and ps3. The concept of the Wii u is brilliant but its just flipping too weak. People say its almost as powerful as a ps3 and xbox but those systems were launched over 7 years ago so for that time the specs were amazing.

To each his own, fanatics can say all is well with Wii u but the real fans of Nintendo like I am thinks Nintendo has lost their way since the Wii. GameCube was amazing but it had bad third party support which was nintendos fault and the systems disc format. I grew up playing n64 and GameCube and thought those were amazing systems with bad third-party support. I loved them but with Wii , buying games after games made me realized that the system was trash and not meant for a core gamers needs. The wiimotion plus was just a slap in the face also and proved Nintendo didn't have a good product to begin with.

Grinding in red steel 2, Zelda and other core games were a frustrating mess because inaccurate controls at crucial times of gameplay was like a dagger in my back. I don't make excuses for bad decisions and things nintendo does that doesn't benefit me but I don't understand this turn in gaming where people feel the need to run away from traditional controls. All this talk of innovation when it comes to Nintendo makes gameplay worst for core gamers. People might stream a game or watch teli on the controls a few times but will go by the way-side soon after the novelty of a new product wears off then you are left with last gen graphics and tech with predictable artificial intelligent npcs which becomes boring fast.

People are doing a disservice to themselves which I don't care much for but I would have loved a Wii u with all the silliness it has right now but be able to do things way above what ps3 can do. Mario 64 was great with the help of powerful hardware, Zelda Oot was great because of powerful tech just like Mario sunshine, waverace, rogue squadron, res 4 and others but people or namely nes fanatics are deceptive when they say power doesn't matter. They've been conditioned through years weak hardware to say that. New fanatics would say vita is rubbish because of sales, then a rational person would see that the design and options on the vita is way better than a 3ds and they have the same amount of games despite 3ds launching a year earlier.

I don't engage in retardation I don't want a sales station I want a PlayStation

Damn, Hatsune-Miku is back, again. At least it was a double post, so we won't see more of this in this article.

JayBlue1984d ago (Edited 1984d ago )

Completely agree with you.

Dear Hatsume, the only problem with your comments is that you are completely biased... and you are overly fixated with graphics and specs.
Lets see, since you talked you like your playstation so much, and you mentioned the N64, do you remember the original PS1? it didn't required much power to perform graphics as good or even better than those on N64. the N64 was a 64bit console, while PS1 was 32bits. So, the game isn't completely set on the specs department.

Yes, again, the Wii U is weaker specs-wise, compared to PS3 and XBOX360, but that doesn't makes it a bad console as a whole. It's issues are being solved now, just like this article says.

Oh, just because they were released 7 years ago the tech in the PS3 and XBOX360 aren't amazing for you anymore? that comment completely serves as a proof for my opinion about you.

Please, don't call yourself a "real nintendo fan".
Since the first time i got on this site, all I've from you is how you keep bashing whatever nintendo does.
You have to understand, Nintendo never focused the wii for "hardcore gamers". If it didn't fit your needs, you always had 2 other options just in front of you.

Oh, the example about the wiimotion plus just make me remember when the PS3 came out offering the Sixaxis controller, and later after a year of being in the market, the release the DualShock 3, same controller, only with vibration feedback integrated.

People feel the need to find something different from traditional controllers because, over the time, it just turn monotonous. Even you should have found yourself getting bored of the same gaming experience over and over again.

I only know few poeple here that uses the term "nes fanatics", which are you and Mika.

I think you got your information wrong. Yes, the Vita have a better construction quality, best tech. But it offers nothing new, its just a PSP, with improved graphics, finally adding a 2nd analog stick, and not one(this is the funny part for me) 2 touch sensitive surfaces, which, in my opinion, don't add the console any special value.

Don't get me wrong, 3ds is almost the same story compared to its predecessor, but everything is a matter of taste and preference.

If you really are going to keep bashing the wii u, i respectfully ask you to back off, go away and keep playing with your so loved playstation.

Sorry for the long post

I agree im loving my WiiU at the moment.

donman11984d ago

I second that... looking forward to the TVii service which goes live Thursday.

grailly1985d ago

I'm really surprised by how few disagrees you've got from this comment. Maybe the haters have finally tried the wiiU out?

1upgamer991985d ago

Oh gosh no, soon we will read "Its weak, and rubbish" LOL...I am very happy Nintendo is fixing this issue. I knew they were going to but the sooner the better. :)

cleft51985d ago

A lot of this is just launch day blues. You buy a console day 1 and unfortunately you have to deal with stuff like this. This is why I am okay with waiting a bit for the bugs to get sorted out and everything to run smoothly.

dantesparda1984d ago

I hope i hear all of you's say the same thing when MS' and Sony's next systems come out.

PopRocks3591984d ago

Funny you say; I have friends who wait until entire generations have passed before buying their respective platforms. They're in stock, their firmware is at the latest and many of the games are at much lower prices.

I personally like to support the stuff I like at launch and support the publishers/developers/etc. Voting with my wallet and all that good stuff.

persona4chie1985d ago

i hope they get the load times down that will really help

Ashunderfire861985d ago

Nintendo apologizing for the black Wii U shortage? Shoot it's a lot easier to get than the Wii!!!!

Gonna wait til next year to get the Wii U, so all the system update is all taking care of. I love that off screen feature.

millzy1021985d ago

he said shortages in Japan not us

WiigotU1984d ago

I work at target we only have 1 white one. But keep in mind that depending on when you go into a store your going to see them. For instance my store gets a delivery truck at least every tuesday. Product put on the floor overnight. Come in WED and you may see some.

shadowfox61985d ago

Good to know, the WiiU has just been launched & it needs attention from Nintendo to address some minor problems of loading time.
