Dev: Wii U Has Potential To Be 'More Popular' Than Wii

A developer says Wii U could end up 'more popular' the Wii if its Gamepad is used to its full potential. (Dev, Industry, Nintendo, Wii U)

After playing it I would agree.

I feel it's their best since N64.
But they need to communicate it better then they have.

It's definitely a better console than the Wii, the only issue I see is the gamepad. Why make a console that can only support 1 gamepad? This is a family console right? So why not support multiple gamepads? Doesn't. Make. Sense.

@MAMMOTTE

ps1 and ps2 proves that sony made powerful systems which were the most powerful systems when they were released. ps1 was released in 1994 and the ps2 in 2000. competing systems that were suppose to be more powerful were released 1.5 to 2 years later. sony has never made a weaker system at the time of their releases. given that other systems had over a year to get release, the companies had chances to add more powerful parts because they got cheaper. knowledge is power

i love the disagrees for stating facts. im really thankful and it doesnt bother me at all but knowing that less intelligent people are hurt. im actually helping. it must kill fanboys inside to see facts.lol

@Dylila...

Honestly, in the 32-64 bit era aka 3D era i prefer Sony consoles over Nintendo and in 2D i prefered NES and SNES. You are the real fanboy, dont judge others too early...

Naughty Dog even praised the N64 power, so, can you shut up already?

"wait until the e3, with all the games announced in the nintendo direct, the wii u will show off it's potential, mario 3d, 2 zelda games, smash bros, mario kart, the X GAME, bayonetta 2, retro's new game, and yoshi and myamoto's new ip, yeah, they will dominate the e3 and the sales will start to rise, and given time the wii u can win the next gen wars, just like the wii won the current gen wars. i mean sony and microsoft have nothing to offer software wise, that can even touch, nintendo's line up, so yes the wii u can be more popular than the wii." ******ALL THIS IRRATIONAL RAMBLING BASED ON NOTHING****** history proves that nintendo makes weak system and are barren a lot through out the year when it comes to game releases.

i love quality video games and i base most decisions to get a console and games on quality and history. the wii u is garbage and you only need to cite the sales, demand, games available and the chatter that occurs about the system. some people will cry about the harsh term i use in describing this abomination of a console but the reality is that people have expectancies when it comes to a next generation device and this wii u is a device that is the same as the ps3 and xbox but worst and weaker hardware-wise.

the sales and chatter from most gamers and developers is that the wii u is a little late to the hd party and its not next gen. i know nintendo fanboys normally see negative news about the wii u and pretend like they dont exist or say people are just haters and fanboys. the reality is that the wii u doesnt offer anything to gaming other than bringing old franchises for the nintendo fanboys and actual nintendo fans. games are being cancelled and postponed on the wii u because devs need to make money so they cant be brought under because the wii u wont garner enough sales for their games. lets please cut it out and stop the silliness, the wii u is rubbish.

the wii u is a new console that should interest all gamers if you arent a fanboy but it doesnt. its a waste of a product. the games are the same and the hardware power is weaker than ps3 and xbox which has been proven many times. the wii is garbage and the wii u is garbage. when i useto say wii is garbage the fanboys get angry and talk about how its amazing and how hd graphics are unnecessary. now the wii u has hd but doesnt add anything new. the sales are dropping rapidly worldwide and everytime sales charts are shown the sales are lower than previously. the fanboys called for the wii u because they chanted that the wii is amazing (which is garbage) so nintendo saw that the fanboys thought that the rubbish wii is seen as amazing so why not make another garbage product because the fanboys love garbage which is the wii u.

all nintendo fanboys keep saying is WAIT WAIT WAIT months until announcements but there arent any games now. where are the games now? where are the proper games due for release in the first half of this year? sell the wii u while its still worth a loaf of bread. i dont understand why fanboys are so silly. im a nintendo fan not a fangirl that would blindly like something that is rubbish. thanks for all disagrees, i welcome them. we all know my argument is based on facts but people in denial cant accept it.

"******ALL THIS IRRATIONAL RAMBLING BASED ON NOTHING******"

Yup that describes all of your post on this site

"history proves that Nintendo makes weak system"

Only if you history started in 2006

-1983-NES powerful for the time it was released better than Sega's SG-1000
-1990-SNES more powerful than Genesis
-1996-N64 more powerful than the PS1 and Saturn, it rivaled powerful PCs for it's time.
-2001-GameCube more powerful than PS2.

Agreed Nintendo have the most ip's there like the disney of the video game industry in terms of all the ip's and famous characters.

If I was them I would go the way of Apple and make consoles just for our systems and third parties who want to make games do. Currently people like EA are taking the pee
Half-Mafia  +   514d ago
I'm excited for most of the games you listed + what ever is at E3. ATM the WiiU doesnt have enough released games for me to buy the console. But that day will come sooner or later.

Also 2 things you said I dont agree with.

1. The Wii has not won this gen. Because all 3 consoles are still selling. 3-4 years from now the Wii could be in 3rd place. We just dont know until manufacturing has stopped for all 3.

2. To say Sony and MS cant touch the WiiU software wise, When there has not even been 1 game announced for the 2 consoles let along the console announcement themselves.
wiium64  +   513d ago
here is a list for you. http://www.vg247.com/2011/0... you see look at nintendo's first party games, how many first party, not third party, but first party games sale like that for microsoft or sony? maybe one or two titles, but look at nintendo's, so many of their brand names always sell in the multiple millions. so yeah they can't touch nintendo. and with the 720 and ps4 both coming out this year, players are going to switch, so at 100 million for wii, i don't see sony or microsoft passing it, so yeah , i think the wii can claim victory on the current gen wars, just like i think wii u will win the next gen wars. hope that answers your questions.
Riderz1337  +   514d ago
So does every other next gen consoles. They all have the "potential" to do so.
DA_SHREDDER  +   514d ago
agreed, especially if ports are so easy to port.
stragomccloud  +   514d ago
Possibly. But I feel like probably not. Time will tell I suppose.

Advertise your product better, Nintendo!
Nintendo Tvii?
Miiverse?
BC with Wii software and accessories?
Off-TV play?

Let the masses know about all the great Wii U features.

I agree,

They did well in the Wii era. But now for some reason they just forgot everything they had learned.

I think they are trying to hard to be Core-tastic and coming off Crap-tastic.

All they need are the simple Wii like commercial that were shot in people's houses.

And if they want they could go the B or C-List Comedian Route for the "Core" .

Keep in mind the developer who mentioned this is from Giants Software. Take a look at their titles and then consider how much weight you put on this guy's ideas.

Nintendo are idiots, they are only just starting to learn the techniques needed to make software with comparable scope,size and graphics to modern games, they have effectively been making gamecube games for the past 11 years. Despite acknowledging the post launch 3ds software drought, vowing not to repeat it ,here they are with a software drought remedied by Mario and a zelda re-release.

Looking at the software Nintendo produces, I hardly believe you can say they have been making Gamecube games for 11 years. Many of the Wii's first party software looks MUCH better than their GCN predecessors. Not to mention Galaxy is nothing like Sunshine and Skyward Sword is nothing like Twilight Princess (outside of Link's face design).

The thing is Nintendo DID try to rectify the software drought with the hopes of enticing third parties and that simply hasn't happened. And the Zelda remake is simply a placeholder for the new large scale Zelda game.

You're free to see it as you will, but personally I think your view on it is overly cynical.

I will buy a Wii U when I see a open world Mario and/or Zelda game and I'm sure millions others will as well. Nintendo is only relevant because of their games, not their hardware. Now get to it!
