NL: ''UK-based developer Codemasters' only announced Wii U offering so far is the upcoming port of F1 Race Stars, but that doesn't mean the new system hasn't caught its eye.''
lol...they are absolutely right...only wiiu will offer much uniqueness for this upcoming generation...nintendo just need to get everything situated and bring the games out..
Not disputing it, but no one has seen what other competitors have to offer yet. It's far too soon. Plus, I think everyone would be happy if it simply just equated to better games all around, no?
Oh boy, a dev is saying something positive about the Wii U, better comment about how it's going to fail! Yay pessimism! Listen, I agree that the Wii U is going to have a rocky start, but it'll be fine soon, like all consoles. One thing I've learned since playing games on the SNES is never underestimate Nintendo. The Wii U may not set the world on fire like the PS2 or DS did, but it's not going to be their Dreamcast. Also, I guarantee most news sites won't report this. Can't have a positive Wii U story getting out there!
Heck i'd love another dreamcast type console enviroment, the only difference that nintendo would have is the fact they aren't in a huge debt
I think the best selling console ever will be a console that doesn't get the best start but still sells well ie WiiU. And so far it looks like all 3 will have around the same graphics going off specs,maybe ps4 looks to be a little more capable,but it's really a case of who brings the best art and wows people because all 3 will have the same graphic fidelity so it's the talent race with PS4/720/WiiU if i were Sony i would get the exact same specs as WiiU and pay Nintendo a royalty for that GAMEPAD and leave the 720 to get their wallet out for exclusives,because this way ps4 and WiiU could be the next HD twins in terms of 3rd party games,and they both have the best exclusives maybe Nintendo slightly edges out Sony on that,but Microsft have no chance when it comes to games. Think a PS4 GAMEPAD exactly the same just with ps4 written where WiiU is,even nintendo gamers would buy a ps4 if that happened,but Sony choose to try and know best when really they just do close copies and call it there own ?? just licence the GAMEPAD its the future.
but...but... the WiiU is doomed right?? ... and the Vita dead... and the PS4/360 will do graphics of a $2000 computer for $100.. Please people, lets get back to the real world, no console is going to fail after 2 months.. if the WiiU is doomed after just 2 months, then the Vita would have been dead for 8 months already, and the PS3 died 6+ years ago. Each console will do their own good/great/bad things, thats why you have a choice in the matter of which one to get, it doesnt make the competition any less worthy. There are all kinds of tastes for everything, and for those who like/can afford all 3(4 if you count PC) then you will just enjoy a bit more, thats it
Well said, sir. The big three go through immense amounts of market research (far beyond what we consumers are aware of) in their decision making. Regardless of current sales, the Wii U has a market, as do the next Xbox, and the PS4. In my opinion, all three will find their successes and failures. That said, Nintendo has the least on the line through all of this. Microsoft and Sony both depend on other markets to aid in their respective growths as organizations. The big three aren't going anywhere. We're all in for a great 5+ years. Hold on to your asses, friends, and enjoy some great games!
You forgot the most important point: All consoles launch with a stellar line of 20 AAA games. Every month.
I think this video sums up this article http://www.youtube.com/watc... /australia joke
The major point of the system is another way to play using a gamepad. If you're looking for the same stuff but prettier, then the Orbis/Durango is for you. If the gamepad suddenly open your eyes to new possibilities, then you will like the WiiU and what it offers. While the higher power of the other systems may let you create your own Skyrims in Little Big Planet, most games can look and play well without top of the line specs.
i totally agree, wii u will own the future, with ps4 and 720 over priced and under powered, wii u will be the future of true next gen, the blind fan boys don't know it yet, but wait til e3, nintendo will dominate the show with zelda, smash bros., mario, mario kart, retro's game, bayonetta 2, and what does tha leave for micosoft and sony? not much. games sell a system , not fantasy specs, look how mario, and zelda, and smash bros, sold on wii, these titles will always sell. and what will ps4 and 720 have? launch titles, you know ports? yeah, wii u is the future.
If nintendo wouldve just WAITED til windwaker, smash bros, & some others were complete to launch wii u, it might have done better.. When wii launched with twilight, it gave not only casuals something to play with wii sports, but core gamers as well.. Oh well, now many people will just over look wii u when PS4 launches cuz it wont be something new as theyve seen some of what it can do already
I think Nintendo launched when they did to do what the 360 did: Get a year advance on sales and come out with new and great games right before the other two companies release their new consoles.
YEP, It is the FUTURE... ...it's My FUTURE.
I recall this is the same company going through major layoffs...But I suppose all of them are at this time. I love Codemasters, but it would be nice to see developers and publishers - that release content on all platforms - refrain from making such statements...I don't know how saying this would help Codemasters at all. PS: What in the heck is up with this grammar? This is N4G people!
as far as the wii u concern its been in the limelight of bad news lately, hopefully this year will change all that and people will forget all the negative press once they start rolling out the good games.here's hoping.
lol it baffles me how nintendo ushered in the 'motion revolution' with wii, only to abandon it the very next gen. will the next zelda use the wiimote and nuinchuck, or is it back to the 'oldskool' using the control pad. or will nintendo exploit the new wiiu controllers screen. it makes me think nintendo dont have any real vision for the future, only offering a new gimmick every gen.
as is the economy not think even the Wii U, PS4 and Xbox 720 will sell much this is global'm crazy to leave ps3 and xbox to see their sales
