Ms and Sony are relying on rumours to keep their names in the media? ....I stopped reading after that ridiculous line..

off topic - Zelda HD omg can't wait

iamnsuperman1246d ago

I agree that is the most ridiculous statement I have read in a while.

rodiabloalmeida1246d ago (Edited 1246d ago )

Comeback? Did Nintendo ever leave for instance? What a stupid question for a title.

MasterCornholio1246d ago

I think he means by blowing everyone away with the Wii. The N64 and Gamecube were failures in comparison to the Wii.

EddieNX 1246d ago

For me the anouncement of Xenoblade 2 or X is as big as they come. Like Xenoblade Chronicles is one of the best games I've played.

jimbobwahey1246d ago

Well I for one felt pretty burned on the Wii due to lack of decent software support in my opinion, which has led to me being incredibly skeptical of the Wii U. Due to the incredibly weak launch lineup and severe lack of appealing games on the horizon for the console, I was left feeling justified in my decision to not purchase a Wii U.

After watching the latest Nintendo Direct video however, I feel that the company is slowly starting to make a small comeback with titles such as Bayonetta 2, Wonderful 101 and the Monolith Soft game that was shown. They haven't completely won me back as a consumer yet, but they're making steady progress and I'm hopeful for a couple of surprises at E3 that will push me over the edge into buying a Wii U.

At this point, if they showcase a new F-Zero or traditional StarFox game, they'll have my money.

JohnDread1246d ago

Exactly. I wouldn't consider it a comeback. Everyone knew those titles are on their way and I never had a thought about Nintendo "leaving" their spot alongside their 2 competitors.

chadboban1246d ago

I don't think Nintendo ever left at least in the eyes of folks like myself. I do however think that this Nintendo Direct was a good step for them in showing folks that they mean business with the Wii U. Do I think that this would make folks who had no intention of getting a Wii U change their minds about the system? Well mostly no, but it was a damn good first step on the road to doing that, if they can keep up with stuff like this, I think they may just get back some gamers yet.

There will, however, always be those folks that hate Nintendo no matter what they do.

WiiUsauce1246d ago

yeah, they're making a comeback after the Wii was the highest selling system of last gen, and had the highest rated game of all time. lol

LOL_WUT1246d ago

@WiiUsauce

Lets not get carried away the Wii U still has a lot of proving to do.

lizard812881244d ago

I see a bunch of, Nintendo is DOOMED, 3DS is a failure, Wiiu will be Nintendo's last console, ect, ect.

It is funny how one Nintendo Direct brings them back from doom to Nintendo is #winning

oh N4G...

The Zelda HD remake does sound delicious and looks beautiful, but I'd want to also express the stupidity and obvious bias in the article beyond what you stated, but it's like....Nintendo made a comeback? By what? They already had done an Ocarina of Time remake on the 3DS that was shown to be Profitable, why not repeat that step? A Comeback by making a remake? Sony got fucking plastered by making PS2 HD Remakes as some form of 'Scamming' when really it was to those who can't find or buy the real games retail wise and not just because the new PS3's aren't PS2 BC.

A Zelda game announcement for Wii U, and another Zelda remake, what fucking Comeback? They're making another game out of the iconic series. It's as if to say, Nintendo makes a Mario Wii U game that's comparable to Mario Galaxy! THEY MADE A COMEBACK! . . . No, just no. When Nintendo decides to be innovative in Software and bring out new IP's as much as the fans should be wanting them, by all means....But they aren't making a comeback, Nintendo stays the same in which they make a Zelda game, a Mario game and a random Metroid or random Starfox game amongst a bunch of Pokemanz.

It's exciting, don't get me wrong, an idea of a more 'Open World' Zelda, even though it feels like Twilight Princess is pretty Open world along with Ocarina of Time and Majoras Mask since you can go to any town as you please and goof about until you go about on the main quest again (Mini-games, get bigger bomb sacks, bigger quivers, etc) Zelda was always a Hybrid or blend imo.

At that....I know more people are demanding a Majora Mask HD remake....like, they better be inching towards that goal. If they made a Majora Mask HD Remake then I would say "Well, they clearly did this for the fans in mind, now if only they'd also listen to the Mother Series fans too"....Because Nintendo has lost their ways with pleasing their fanbase Before thinking about Money money money.

"""MS and Sony are relying on rumours to keep their names in the media"""

WTF did i just read ?!!

chadboban1246d ago

Agreed. It's a completely ridiculous statement.

WiiUsauce1246d ago

why do you do this """"" """""? it makes you look retarded.

Ezz20131245d ago (Edited 1245d ago )

why what i do bother you ?! and why should i care about yor opinion in first place ?!

Belking1246d ago

Nintendo never went anywhere.

NastyLeftHook01246d ago

if it wanted its comeback it would have went to kinects face and got it.

joeorc1246d ago

that so many media outlets trying to paint Nintendo as the underdog?

I mean, the fact that Nintendo has currently the most number of systems in the retail chain out of the big three!

DS
DSi
DSXL
3DS
3DSXL
WII
WIIU

7! systems

Sony

PSP
PS3
PSVita
What's ever left in the in the retail chain PS2

4! systems soon to be 3!

Microsoft

xbox360

1!

yet Nintendo is seen as the underdog?

LMAO

zebramocha1246d ago

Their focus is the 3ds & wiiu,those other systems don't count as games are not going to be made any more.

joeorc1246d ago (Edited 1246d ago )

"Their focus is the 3ds & wiiu,those other systems don't count as games are not going to be made any more."

that still does not take away from the fact their still in retail chains taking up shelf space!

just by target alone:

http://www.target.com/c/nin... categories_2

you can still get them in store! trust me they do infact count.

@takashima_bitch

do you still see the PSPGo on store shelves?

http://www.target.com/c/pla... categories_8

the PSPGo is not in retail chain's pretty much if it is it's what ever they have left, Nintendo has not stopped production on the DS line of Handhelds.

zebramocha1246d ago (Edited 1246d ago )

That's not my point,I'm saying even with those are models still being purchased,their focus is the 3ds,wiiu and bring older games to the new consoles.

delicia1246d ago

If you mention the 3DSXL, why not the different PSP's like the Slim or Go or the Slim consoles as well? But yeah, Nintendo's portables and video games do sell a lot.
