After today's Nintendo Direct, a look is taken at what lessons Microsoft and Sony can take from Nintendo.
Sony is and Destination playstation they will have to bring the Vita and Ps4 bombs. PS3 is fine... Microsoft is still busy destroying RARE , making Kinnect 2 and a projector called ''project illuminati room'' and kinectimals 2 and a load of multiplats that are inferior to PC.
Sony and Microsoft don't compete with Nintendo. Even Sony has said they feel Nintendo runs it own generation by itself. A person that is only able to buy one console at the beginning of a generation who owned a PS3 or 360 will not skip out on the successors for a wii u. Sony and Microsoft know it that's why they have dragged this generation the most with their current console.
"Even Sony has said they feel Nintendo runs it own generation by itself" The impression I got with that is there is a big Nintendo fanbase that also buys Sony or Microsoft products. This fanbase do no fully care on what the system is as long as they can play Mario , Zelda.... The thing is a Nintendo consoles do not compete at the same level as Sony and Microsoft as they have become a console you (big Nintendo fanbase) will get regards (fantastic position to be in by the way). Unlike Sony and Microsoft where you tend to get either or. It isn't a bad thing and more often than not it is the most ideal solution for a console manufacturer. They have there games that sell the system regardless of third party help. Sony and Microsoft on the other hand need that support and often their exclusives with third part support are the deciding factor between a PS3 and 360.
Have you read this yet? It was their comment on the Wii U. http://mynintendonews.com/2...
I would agree with that. Nintendo are happy being behind and sticking with there fanbase. However that was because in the past with the wii it sold to a new demographic. One they didn't really care about. However it may not work with WiiU.
"and a load of multiplats that are inferior to PC." And a load of multiples that are superior to PS3.
Problem is, the PS3 still relies on its exclusives, what the 360 lacks, so...
illuminati room?? oh'my goodness the devil in video games now???? sure he- they are....... or did you mean illumni-room projector.
Please don't announce PS4, rape them in price Sony. ITS A TRAP!!!
I agree but they can do both. They can continue to support the ps3 ti battle the wiiU and ps4 to battle xboxnext. And i would consider today more of catching up for nintendo. They opted to get a jump on next gen consoles by creating this gen hardware. Also, most of their big titles didnt release at launch and who knows when they will. He says Sony is complacent. What? They have many exclusives including games that are similar to the bigN. And they are pioneering the HD remake. Also as he mentioned, they are both a little busy right now with real next gen consoles. Nintendo may survive with their trademark games that everyone loves while Sony and Microsoft battle it out, but i think Sony has the opportunity to steal from both companies. Anyway, Nintendo's launch was lackluster and they dont have much time before they lose the spotlight entirely.
Very well said. Nintendo needs to get momentum going for their console ASAP if they don't want it to get blown away by new hardware releases and the rumored launch line up the PS4 is said to have. I also don't doubt that Microsoft will price the next box competitively in order to try and shrink Sony's and Nintendo's market share.
Except it isn't "current generation" hardware by console standards. The Wii U uses a gpu similar to those released in 2011. The next sony and microsoft platforms will be using gpus from 2012. All are considered "next gen" by console standards.
I might actually be interested in E3 this year, after today. Let's keep up this good momentum.
This is how you build good hype, I like the direction that Nintendo has taken when reveling games! No longer do we have to wait till E3, though I'm sure there will be many announcements there, Nintendo has found a way to keep their fans excited before then. I'm ESPECIALLY EXCITED for Monolith Soft X, and am no longer worried for the system as of now. Things could change, but for now am super EXCITED!
The Wii U may not be as much of a revolution as it is an evolution, but the way Nintendo is taking to the hype machine that is video game announcements, Nintendo Direct, as a news platform, is definitely a game changer.
I like how Nintendo is bypassing the Western press completely with these Nintendo Directs. They can deliver information their way without having to deal with the press mangling up the message or unfairly editorializing the news.
oddly theres new games announced for PS every single week.. Not just at E3 or Destination PS, or anything else.. Theres always new news of new games being announced.. Keep an eye on the news sections & not opinion pieces.. Nothing wrong with being excited about a new game brother... I was excited when i seen the last of us get announced & shown.. Not at E3 but before it on a regular day remember? I was excited for Ni No Kuni not at E3 but a regular day.. Same as Tales of Xillia, GOW Ascension, etc.. None were revealed at E3 except Beyond 2 souls & wonderbook..
Well since PS gets new games announced every week you guys can stop plastering the same 4 games coming in every thread! TLOU, Beyond, GoW, and Ni NoKuni. I've stated before that I have no clue why Sony fanboys proclaim these games in every post they make. But sales of Sony's 1st party exclusives vs 3rd party buggy games aren't even close in sales comparison. A game like Uncharted should sell like Halo does on the 360 if you guys really put your money where your mouth is...
So no new Zelda till november 2014 then? I'm not impressed with the WiiU... so far. I will reserve my purchase until they release a GOOD metroid. (which sadly might be never)
the only thing I liked was the X announcement but people are blowing this out of proportion really. Nintendo is still missing on tons and tons of 3rd party multiplats this year and Sony has its own set of Triple A exclusives for 2013 on top of the rumored announcement of the PS4. HD ports like Wind Waker and announcements for games that will not even come out this year is nothing to get SO excited about if you ask me.
* 3D Mario Game is huge news. So is a yoshi game, a random SMT X FE crossover game and WW HD along with New LoZ and Mario Kart announcements. Most anticipated E3 ever for me. We get to possibly see a 3D mario game that resembles Mario 64 !
Are you fanboys that delusional?The new game by MonolithSoft looks like the best jrpg of all times and you keep telling us about the unanounced ps4?
you say GOOD as if they have never been good. Aside from Other M, which was a little different and a departure from the regular the Prime Trilogy was utterly fantastic, and was an amazing purchase on the Wii because they added Wii controls to the first 2 games. If anything, the Wii U game should hopefully build on the successful Prime series..
Nintendo dropped a big bomb with Pokemon announcement and topped it majorly today. This is something MS and Sony need to emulate. I hope they emulate this sooner rather than later.
Well, I feel kind of bad because I didn't think any of the announcements were that exciting.
fair enough, not everyone is excited by Mario Kart, Zelda, Mario.. The Wind Waker HD Remake was a nice bonus, and the Monolift Soft game looks like it could be epic. but do you own a Wii U? If not, then I can easily see why you aren't excited for games on a platform you don't even own. But if that's the case, then why you would make that comment is beyond me..
I don't currently own a Wii U, but I'm looking for a good reason to become an owner. Nothing really catches my eye and I was looking forward to seeing what Nintendo had up their sleeve for me to make that jump. I was just a little disappointed, that's all.
The Xenoblade 2 announcement looks better than anything on PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360 imo. And it assures me the Wii U can visually do things the Xbox 360 and PS3 cant. I understand why people are skeptical on Wii U, but the PS3 and Xbox 360 are shooterboxes. COD, Mass Effect, Far Cry, Killzone, Resistence, Borderlands, Medal Of Honor, Resistance, MAG, Halo, Uncharted, Dead Space,..... Everything is a shooter. DmC Devil May Cry, Anarchy Reigns, and God of war are out or coming but the number of shooters dwarf those genre's. Lets not get started on console RPGs wheres Final Fantasy versus? Instead we get this Final Fantasy 13 Lighting Returns crap. The Last good JRPG on a console was Lost Odyssey. Ni No Kuni and Tales of Xillia took forever to come out here in the states. I for one am happy Nintendo is bringing different types of games, even if there sequels. At least their not shooters. Legend of Zelda Windwaker HD, Fire Emblem x Shin Megami, Wonderful 101, Bayonetta 2, Monster Hunter 3, Xenoblade 2.
@theyellowflash360: So bringing old formulas, same characters, most of the time same things, just different controls, over and over, with different graphics is bringing something refreshing over the other plataforms? how that works.. If u want to call innovation in the wii u control.. it is #even if sega did it before, but the games that nintendo releases are not in any way...
@theyellowflash30 """The Xenoblade 2 announcement looks better than anything on PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360 imo. And it assures me the Wii U can visually do things the Xbox 360 and PS3 cant. """ i'm sorry ...but no way in hell this game look better than the games coming out for ps3 this year you have to be very blind to think this game look better than god of war ascension /the last of /beyond /ni no kuni those games look much better than what i saw for this game
What rpg on the ps3 or 360 has the scope and size of xenoblade. and looks as good as it? The only game i can think of is ff versus
yellow flash Sony has a variety of exclusives, from platforming to shooters, be quiet. LOOK at the amount of exclusives Sony has launched generation. Your reference to them is stupid. You're mentioning stuff that hasn't even released yet.... I can play, little big planet, uncharted, god of war, infamous, ratchet and clank, heavy rain, jax hd collections and various other titles....compared to what you just listed.
I have already played all those games.... I have a PS3, 360, Wii, Wii U, 3DS, and PC. All im trying to say is there is no RPG that can match the graphics and scope of Xenoblade 2 with the exception of FF VS that we might not even see
Can just go play Uncharted and God Of War and leave the true gaming to people who care about games and not about consoles.The new monolith game shits everything on the ps3.
