PSA for the Wii U haters: look at those games we're getting

GameZone's Lance Liebl writes, "There's nothing that annoys me more than having to try to defend the Wii U to people. It's like I'm surrounded by gamers that feel the console is a waste and that its early sales numbers are indicative of a failed console for Nintendo. I can't wait to laugh in their faces as 2013 progresses. I keep saying the same thing over and over: just wait until the big first-party games come out... just wait. Well, it looks like that waiting will be over at E3, as Nintendo announced today a ton of previously unannounced titles that will be shown off at the summer's premiere gaming expo."

"There's nothing that annoys me more than having to try to defend the Wii U to people"

and you are helping yourself by having a title like "PSA for the Wii U haters: look at those games we're getting"? It's just asking for trouble.

Just be a bigger person might be a better response and having "Resident Evil 6 has good graphics, but the game sucked. Just throwing that out there" is really not going to help. Actually it is quite ironic what you are doing there

Also a small point but"I can play my Wii U on the toilet or on a train without a TV" isn't a big sell for me or a lot of people as I/ a lot of people tend not to spend hours on the toilet. Minutes at most. A better argument would be I can play anywhere in the house without moving the Wii U. The train idea is a bit misleading as you need the train to have power (not all do. In fact in the UK only certain mainline trains have a couple per carriage) and you have to take the Wii U console with you

This article is pathetic. Quit trying to justify the purchase of your toy and just play the damn thing.

Nintendo fans are so happy about a bunch of HD remakes and rehashes. Only the new game by Monolithsoft was interesting. Enjoy the milking.

tehpees31670d ago

Please lets not go there again. If I list HD remakes on PS3 versus HD remakes confirmed for Wii U who would have more?

Root1670d ago (Edited 1670d ago )


Well thats a pretty stupid comparison

The PS3 has been out longer while the Wii U is a next gen console of course the PS3 is going to have more. It's had a 6 year head start, the Wii U has been out for 3-4 months

Anyway the thing with the PS3 it does HD remakes but at the same time it has third party support and it's exclusives.

Theyellowflash301670d ago

Just like Millions of PS3 and 360 fans are happy with Madden and COD every year. Nintendo fans like Nintendo games. They are well crafted and don't follow the 'dude has a gun' most modern games are like.

Army_of_Darkness1670d ago (Edited 1670d ago )

Nintendo fanboys will take anything HD since they never experienced it for the longest time! LOL!
Excited for HD remakes hahaha! Sony gave us a choice as to weather or not we want to buy them cause we have lots of other game options to choose from(multiplat, exclusives). Nintendo however, you gotta buy these Hd remakes or you don't have much to play.

Elem1871670d ago

@Army_of_Darkness Actually I am a Nintendo fanboi and have been enjoying HD graphics LONG before the PS3 or 360 came out, being I also have a powerhouse PC gaming rig.

I do find it funny to watch Sony and Microsoft fanbois snipe at a Nintendo console about its "graphics" when that's not even the selling point of a Nintendo system, while Sony and Microsofts' only sales pitch is its graphics and it does a pretty poor job of it.... All consoles look inferior to PC games, and always will... The difference is Nintendo innovates how we interact with games and gameplay mechanics, and thats their selling point and they do it better than any gaming system, PC included. While the only selling point for the PS3/360 is its graphics and they look horribly dated (they look dated since launch).

But I'm going to crack up into a fit of giggles when Sony and Microsoft fanbois realize those two new consoles this year will only have a Radeon 7000 series GPU in it.... enjoy that 20% speed increase over the Wii U's Radeon 6000 series GPU.... Sony/M$ fanbois will be in for a rude shock when games are only going to look somewhat better than ps3 games, and only marginally better than Wii U games. This next gen isn't going to be a massive leap like the PS2 to PS3 was.

Not justifying......

* Facts trump BS....

He is simply laying out facts to go against what trolls like you think.

Mounce1670d ago

So, in a nutshell...

It's a Fanboy article made to provoke Other fanboys whilst the Nintendo fanboys stroke their ego instead of playing the supposed games they Will be getting?

Army_of_Darkness1670d ago (Edited 1670d ago )

It always makes me smile when someone brings in their "powerful" pc into the console business to rescue them so they can feel better about themselves lol! cute.
You got to enjoy HD graphics on a 24" screen with your little mouse n keyboard a few years before the ps3/x360 came out, wooo whooo! Good for you buddy! ;-) Hi5! to that.

I don't care about gaming on pc since I have always been a console gamer and that won't change anytime soon, so I'm still following the graphical leap treads of CONSOLESSS. not pc....

But even though your bashing the ps3/360 for their outdated HD games when compared to your amazing wonderful pc, I find it really funny that your defending nintendo coming into the HD market even waaaaay later than sony and MS...huh...

miyamoto1670d ago

As a core gamer I am waiting for Nintendo to fulfill their promise.

No next generation Zelda HD no buy for me.

The Zelda HD they showed at E3 if it ever comes out, will test the Wii U's overall gaming prowess. That is what we are waiting for.

@Army_of_Darkness you know you can use a tv with a pc right?and you can use xbox and ps3 controllers on a pc. plus all third party games are better on pc,even on a cheap $500 pc. buying consoles for multiplats is pointless. and ps3 and wii both had around the same amount of exclusives while the xbox has nothing but halo and gears, rehashed and milked for the same console at least 4 times each.( and no alan wake is not an xbox exclusive as it has a better pc counterpart)

These comments to my post only make my original post that much funnier.

We knew most games were coming to the wii u but the real question is WHEN? honestly I might get the wii u for smash bro u but just need to see what it's going to offer. But for now it's all about the next Sony and Microsoft consoles. Nintendo fans will get wii u but the casual isn't into console gaming as they were this Gen with the wii. It has slowly died down and moved on to phones and tablets.

Elem1871670d ago

If casual gamers don't buy consoles, the console market will die.... they make up 90% of the market, the console market will not survive on hardcore gamers alone, as most hardcore gamers view all console systems as toys and have fast computers.... only gamers who can't do a propper cost analysis still buy Sony/Microsoft systems.

The rest of us who don't like throwing money out the window on dated, inferior graphics, and that enjoy the very best eye candy, the highest frame rates have moved on to PC gaming MANY years ago..... Nintendo remains relevant because they learned from the gamecube mistake that the fastest machine doesn't win the sales, its the innovation in gameplay, and its that one thing that they do better than any other system.

If you spend more than 30 minutes on the toilet, you run the risk of developing blood clots.

@zero the reason I'm a fan of Sony is,they just don't rely on established franchises,that's why I personally think people articles like these are stupid because nintendo is doing more of the same,if graphics wasn't their main focus for the wiiu,you would think games & ones that used the tablet would the main focus,I'm talking about first party games.

@Rupert your sarcastic remark is not funny or clever.

RuperttheBear1670d ago

Thanks for the medical advice, I shall now refrain from spending more than 30 minutes on the toilet.

Your services will be remembered Dr zebramocha, they may have even saved a life or two.

God bless you.

zerocrossing1670d ago

I agree with you and I also like Sony for that, but Nintendo have proven that they can take their old franchises and rework them and make great game experiences for the current gen.

Im not saying people have to like Nintendo but when you bash and insult them you're doing the same thing to the fans that looking forward to those so called "rehashed" games you so despise.

RuperttheBear1670d ago (Edited 1670d ago )


I wasn't being sarcastic, I was just joking actually :/

I'll have to add you to my list of N4G members who don't have a sense of humour.

Elem1871670d ago

Its ok if you don't like mario or zelda. But bashing a company for doing what turns a profit is silly.

Nintendo is a company first and foremost, and they develop products that people want and buy, and in the process turn a profit.

Nintendo isn't a multibillion dollar conglomerate so they can't afford to put a system that doesn't make a profit. They can't pull a Sony and put out flop after flop and stay in the red on the most recent console.

To this date, PS3 still hasn't made Sony a single solitary dime. The "Eye" flopped, the "Move" flopped and the Vita flopped. I think Sony set some of kind of record for the most flops in a 10 year period.

The president of Sony video gaming division might find hemorrhaging money fun, but Nintendo can't take that route.

Reading part of this article reminds me of something KingofwiiU would write in one of his rants. It's sad indeed.

EddieNX 1670d ago (Edited 1670d ago )

Indeed I would write an article like this .

Because what is really really really sad is the TONS and TONS of grown ass men Sony fanboys who hate everything else and try to put the Wiiu down.

They say statements as if their horrible opinion is fact. Windwaker Reborn , 3D mario , Mario Kart Wiiu , Smash bros being late in their development cycle and Almost ready for Unveiling is dissapointing ? It's bigger and better than anything Sony could ever muster.

I just get angry with the pathetic grown men who are clueless about this industry and will be eating their words when The Wiiu smashes the lifetime sales of the PS4.

Which you all expect to be Cheap , Powerfull , Amazing must buy games from day 1 , etc.

Playstation all stars battle royale. Nuff said.

Great article btw. It needs to be said . The Sony Fanboys of this site are like 14 year old kids who think they're mature lol.

bothebo1670d ago


"I just get angry with the pathetic grown men who are clueless about this industry and will be eating their words when The Wiiu smashes the lifetime sales of the PS4."

So you're justifying the Wii U and your satisfaction based on the number of consoles it is going to sell(typical ninny fan boy thing to do)? Do I need to remind you that sales are not that good and almost as bad as the Vita?

"They say statements as if their horrible opinion is fact. Windwaker Reborn , 3D mario , Mario Kart Wiiu , Smash bros being late in their development cycle and Almost ready for Unveiling is dissapointing ? It's bigger and better than anything Sony could ever muster."

It's funny because you just fit your own stereotype for a Sony fan boy. You'll regret your statement come E3 when new hardware over shadows you're "late in development games" which you will have to wait over a year to play.

RandomEclipse1670d ago


you compare wii-U sales to the vita?? Lol, why not compare vita sales to its direct competition, the 3DS? Oh yea thats because 3DS have been spanking vita sales ever since the vita was released

kayoss1670d ago (Edited 1670d ago )

Kingofwii kept saying that Sony fan boys are grown men who act like 14 years old and yet he bitching and pouting like a 12 year old girl. Need i remind you that most Nintendo Wii owner are actually kids ages 8-15. Their parents bought the wii for them to shut them up so the parents can keep the house clean or finish their work? Why do you think when the Wii U was released the sale numbers did not translate from the amount of Wii sales? With over 100 million wii sold you would think that at least 50% will buy the Wii U. Thats because most Wii owner are not hardcore gamers and are happy with the Wii and dont think they need the Wii U.
Im saying this as a Wii U owner...and so far theres not a lot of games that interest me for the Wii U. Only game I've played so far on the Wii U is ZombieU.

bothebo1670d ago (Edited 1670d ago )


Once again you show the stupidity of Nintendo fan boys! What did I say?

Here i'll provide it for you so you can't screw it up: "So you're justifying the Wii U and your satisfaction based on the number of consoles it is going to sell(typical ninny fan boy thing to do)?"

Ya know what? I'll stoop to your level. Why don't we compare hardware sales and software sales among the Wii U's competitors. The Wii U barely has a hardware to software ratio of 1 if you discount Nintendo land which comes with the deluxe game. You mind telling me where the PS3's stands? Let me drop you a hint: it's greater than 8 and less than 10. Since you Nintendo fan boys are sooooo good at math I think you can figure it out. How about weekly hardware sales among the Wii U and the PS3? Can you do the math there for me?

I also love how you insist on comparing the Wii U to the Vita even though I was using it as a reference as a device that isn't selling well. And once again, you justify the 3DS with sales, even though the PS VITA could emulate the 3DS and has a much better line up of games in the near future. Your only notable games coming up are Fire Emblem and Pokemon which releases in October. Would you mind looking at the Vita's line up?

Looking forward to your response!

I am glad wiiU is getting awsome games! Ps3 is getting awsome games before next gen! wiiU vs ps3? lol ps4 maybe this year. I don't need a new console for new great games yet.

kayoss1670d ago (Edited 1670d ago )

Why is everyone so suprised that game ports for the Wii U have better graphics. The Wii U came out about 3 months ago. The PS3 and Xbox 360 came out 6-7 years ago. If you going to port a game thats been out for 2-3 years have to give consumers a reason to go out and buy the port. So you must make improvements on the port. If the port for the Wii U is crappier then its counterpart then whats the point. Of course Resident Evil 6 graphic is slighter better because its ported and optimized for a slightly more powerful machine.
Let see you write another article like this when the PS4 and xbox720 comes out.. what excuse you'll going to use to defend the Wii U?
The majority of gamers who do support their console either it be the PS3 or Xbox are into more mature type of games. A lot of us have moved on from the games like Mario, pokemon, and nintendog.

ElectricKaibutsu1670d ago

I agree. This is silly. I doubt people who dislike Nintendo games are impressed by the Nintendo games the Wii U is getting.

It's like going up to someone who hates chocolate, eating some fudge, and saying, "bet you wish you had some of this chocolate, chocolate hater."

Still don't see how these games will attract anyone that isn't already a Nintendo fan.

zerocrossing1670d ago (Edited 1670d ago )

Nintendo's 1st party games are consistently great and many are in the top 10 list of their respective genres.

I'm not a Sony fan, MS fan or Nintendo fan, If a console has great games I'll buy it and play them, anybody holding onto a ridiculous false sense of allegiance is only kidding themselves.
