Games Inbox: Wii U vs. PS4, next gen Rare, and the future of PS Vita

The morning Inbox is still dealing with the fallout from the PlayStation 4 reveal, as one reader kids himself he’s giving up gaming.

The story is too old to be commented.

I think WiiU and PS4 will rape the 720.

Yodagamer1244d ago

More than likely especially if they don't launch this year. The main reason i think the xbox was successful is it simply came first and when one person bought xbox live their friends bought it so they could play online with their friends. It created a domino effect of sales. Kinect is another factor, but i think that was a flash in the pan.

Naw ps4/720. Honestly who with a right mind will think the wii u has a chance. Most of the audience that bought a wii passed on the wii u. And no most of them aren't waiting for zelda, pokemon etc. Most of its user base moved on to phones/tablets.

deafdani1244d ago

Right now, the PS4 will likely have all the third party games the next Xbox will have, plus its exclusives.

The Wii U will have its exclusives.

The Next Xbox? It remains to be seen, but if Microsoft follows the same path they did with the 360, then it will have very little to offer in terms of exclusive games, giving both PS4 and Wii U the edge.

Food for thought.

@deafdani
That's true but it's a wait and see with Microsoft right now. Plus look at it this way the xbox 360 basically took away the wii's market with kinect.

@xursx
Agree.E3 will either nail the coffin for the console or bring it back to life.

xursz1244d ago

I don't know but I expect Nintendo to come with huge announcements this E3. They had to have anticipated the danger of competition coming to market this holiday so they'd have to invest appropriately to keep people interested.

I'm going for the console that gives me the most fun with the lowest cost.

Gaming is suppose to be all about having fun.

MasterCornholio1244d ago

I agree with you. I always game on the console that gives me the most fun. Currently im gaming on my PS3 because its the console that provides me with the most amount of fun. Hopefully the PS4 will launch with good games that way i can buy it for a new level of fun.

Can't believe people are down voting fun XD

And spending extra money on a blu-ray player and Harddrive space that only applies to a small bunch is just in my eyes not needed for a game console especially when you have Netflix in super HD ect it just adds to the cost of already expensive consoles,all consoles shoud be £225 to say £300 that's the sweet spot,

Microsoft and Sony are trying too hard with adding extra stuff you will never use ?? my WiiU is the best place to go for Browsing the web or watching movies on Netflix ect it just plays the films in the best possible quality and for me that's all i need for multi-media although Nintendo have pledged to keep the services coming ect StreetU is very impressive i went to a few destinations where i'd been on holiday it bought bk memory's,very interesting you can globe trot and check destinations out before you actually go there it's very fun.

is this question and article for real? are they really show-downing the PS4 VS Wii U. its no contest, im not even going to justify a response to this article cause to me Nintendo already failed in my eyes two months after its initial release. lets just bring up facts shall we:

Wii U: lost support from major developers as they don't want to go back to the drawing board on games that they already had in development for a long time. they also don't have support from too many indie game developers either as they don't feel that their games will succeed with the younger Wii U owners. Sales: under a million since launch in November and its not even a great console its a Wii with a second screen experience and HDMI that's just about it.

PS4: has support from not only 1st party developers but second and third party as well as indie developers and they have cloud gaming in place and the vita is ready to dominate after being under for a year. Sony will push the vita to high class and the PS4 will own the market.

khowat1244d ago

Whoa there, wii u has sold more than a million units, but are you talking about world wide, europe, or japan, because there it hasn't reached a million but in the US it has and worldwide it has reached around 2.5 million.

Link0791243d ago (Edited 1243d ago )

I think you've been listening to too many rumours mate or twisted storys ie storys with little twists to make them sound more doom and gloom than they really are,because i'll tell you now WiiU has tons of support from 3rd partys mostly japenese but them games are being built for the west now.

WiiU sold 3.01 million units at the end of december,so 1 million units to sell in 3 months,thats the truth kids,and with MH3U,and LegoCity not to mention NFS U it will reach that goal easy.

doublejj1243d ago (Edited 1243d ago )

yada yada yada whoopidy doo whoopidy doo the Wii U will fade into the mist and then Nintendo will turn into a third party developer and join Sony and they could make games for them cause the Wii U is not next gen its last gen with a current gen feel and it will faze out in about 2 years from this year. oh yea and Microsoft will close its doors on the console market and go complete PC and like i said Sony will then handle the home market and handheld division. keep the opinions coming lol cause that's all they are to me.

MNGamer-N1244d ago

Wii U + PS4 + 3DS + VITA, FTW! Who needs a Microsoft console? For what? So I can move my body all around pretending to kick a ball? Sounds awful. I want to sit in a comfy chair and move my fingers and eyeballs.

ElementX1244d ago

I just bought a Vita and I'm happy with the purchase. I'm looking forward to PS4 connectivity. I think Wii U sales will pick up when major titles are launched, however I think the next Xbox and PS4 will be the most played consoles.
