What did last week's Nintendo Direct mean for gamers?

GameZone writes, "On Wednesday during Nintendo Direct, Nintendo announced a series of games that gamers never thought possible. Taking them by shock, gamers were confounded as to why Nintendo would make multiple announcements that they could’ve used at E3. A new Zelda game getting detailed a bit, a Fire Emblem and Shin Megami Tensei cross over, a Zelda HD remake, and more?! Even I’m still recovering from the shock! However, despite what gamers might say, Nintendo knows what it’s doing most of the time and this move should come as no surprise. So what did this event mean for Nintendo? " (Shin-Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem, Super Smash Bros., The Legend of Zelda, The Legend Of Zelda: The Wind Waker, Wii U, Yarn Yoshi)

Well for starters it meant we've had to wade through far too many opinion pieces on "what did last week's Nintendo Direct mean for gamers".

As with everything gaming related, everybody's trying to spin it to suit their particular bias and desire for traffic.

Sorry. Did you not want a serious answer?

This.

For any proper multiplatform gamer , it meant that the Wiiu has an influx of great games on the way. That doesn't affect the amazing games on the way to ps3 or 360 , but just means the Wiiu is getting a load of good games.

That's all it meant ?

Yes but high end nextgen games with AA in other words zero jaggies.

Its called aliasing, not jaggies. Saying jaggies sounds so immature.

Also, aliasing will no be going away anytime soon. The harder you push a game on a console, the more aliasing it will have.

Saying there will be zero aliasing is just as ridiculous as the belief that all games with be native 1080p 60fps. Its not going to happen.

I know it's called anti alaising mate and ps3 and 360 suffered from not having it on every game,disagree's for just saying the truth sums up the maturity of ps3 and 360 gamers in my eyes,look the WiiU on every game so far has Anti Alaising at 720p native and thats that.

try spelling properly mate,you said,

Also,alaising will no be going away anytime soon ? The harder you push a game on a console,the more alaising it will have ?

1st off no one said anti alaising will be going anywhere and 2nd the more you push a game the more anti alaising you will need to apply for it to have smooth edges or zero jaggies which takes nextgen hardware to achieve.
