Things are gonna be rough for Nintendo with many expecting PS4 and 720 to launch this holiday

LOL_WUT1852d ago

Seeing what the PS4 is capable of yea it's going to be pretty tough for Nintendo.

lilbroRx1852d ago (Edited 1852d ago )

Nintendo doesn't care what the PS4 can do. They stated this outright.

People game on the Nintendo consoles don't either.

Your hopes of Nintendo having some kind of butthurt over Sony's "certain to be expensive" will leave you disappointing.

Neonridr1852d ago

not if there is hardware shortages for both the 720 and PS4 (assuming they both launch this year). As long as the Wii U has some quality software for the xmas season, you're going to be hard pressed to find a PS4 or 720 (again, assuming they are both coming out), which leaves Nintendo in a great position if they have some killer software available.

Especially if there's a big price difference. That 8gigs of GDDR5 ram ain't cheap.

gpturbo811852d ago

when a parent goes to the store for xmas, are they gonna spend 300 for a wii u or 5-600 for video game/ facebook machine. common sense bud. nintendo will sell units on price difference alone, just like the wii.

Consumers to ubisoft: were not satisfied on how ubisoft is acting lately.

lilbroRx1852d ago (Edited 1852d ago )

Same here. I lost almost all of my respect for Ubisoft when they pushed Rayman Legends back 7 months and this may have just killed it for me.

I hope the Sony/Microsoft fanbase alone can keep them afloat, because they will not see another sell from me.

"I hope the Sony/Microsoft fanbase alone can keep them afloat, because they will not see another sell from me."

Lets see 1 lost sale vs 140 million potential consumers.

I think they can live without you:)

OT: Anyways Nintendo needs to start listening to their developers instead of ignoring them otherwise they will find themselves in a very serious predicament.

USMC_POLICE1852d ago (Edited 1852d ago )

Hey MasterCornholio most of us that own a wii u also own ps3/360 so they lost more than 1 sale.

ElectricKaibutsu1851d ago

I half agree but I'm waiting to see how much effort they put into that Watch Dogs port. If they wow me with hacking using the gamepad I might forgive them.

solboogie1852d ago

Im not supporting Ubi with my money!

Qrphe1852d ago

They NEED to drop the price.

Jobesy1852d ago (Edited 1852d ago )

Not going to matter much. If the PS4 and Nextbox release this holiday then they will probably drop the prices of the PS3 and 360 so low below any possible Wiiu price that Christmas present buying moms and dads will get those over the Wiiu. It won't be until next year or the year after that the Wiiu will be the most affordable platform.

ElectricKaibutsu1851d ago

Isn't the PS3 still like $300 for some reason? Isn't that the same price as the cheap Wii U? The Wii U needs GAMES, not a price drop.

Edit: Actually the cheapest PS3 I can find is the Uncharted bundle for $270.

Ah, so the trolls have nothing to say when Criterion is praising the Wii U's hardware, but then Ubisoft shows up with this quote and now they're in full swing. Ain't that something. That's typical.

Same song and dance. Wait for a larger software library, perhaps a price drop and there will be more incentive for general consumers to pick one up.

irony PopRocks

whenever the doom Nintendo articles are in full swing you're nowhere to be seen, but the moment a really positive one pops up well lo and behold, you're all over it.

the problem with Wii U is that it seems to divide opinion, some devs praise it others don't.

lilbroRx1852d ago

I don't follow. I generally see him on everything Nintendo related.

I tend to shy away from negative news, but only because the heavy anti-Nintendo Sony lead fanbase on this site will overpower any positive opinion with disagrees no matter whether its true, false, reasonable, unreasonable or whatever.

I would rather not have my posting capabilities pulverized because I stated a fact about Nintendo or Sony that wasn't to the fanboys liking.

PopRocks3591852d ago (Edited 1852d ago )


I call BS on that. I've been on positive and negative articles related to the Wii U just as I have been more recently frequenting positive and negative articles related to Sony hardware as well.

You want to try and argue something I say or do? Fine, but don't lie about it or make baseless assumptions.

CouldHaveYelledUiiW1852d ago

Criterion explained why that is in this interview:

Please note, this is about Next Gen not about WiiU vs PS360.
