rustyshell.com: While Wii U owners are basically taking comfort in knowing what’s “coming soon” for the machine, some people (mostly non Wii U owners, I suspect) have been complaining that there’s nothing to play. I say that’s rubbish.
Someone should make an article explaining the same thing about the PS Vita. There is tons of shit to play. Go and search for the games you like.
for Aussies it's definitely the PRICE of the Vita here. $350 is ludicrous. I'd buy a Vita just for Golden Abyss, but not for over $300 :(
That doesn't seem all that expensive. Paid around £300 for my Vita on launch and that converts to around 430AUD.
350? pretty sure around 250-28 is common now. I bought a 3ds at 250 and my vita at launch for 350 and i thought it was definately worth the money
I paid LESS than $200 for Vita including a 8Gig memory stick, which is a steal. You really should try Ebay you'll save a lot of money.
Can you import? But it's probably best to wait and get the red premium PS Vita with Soul Sacrifice.
@zimger-Aussies also make $15 an hour minimum wage.
@TheGrimOfDeath My thoughts exactly. Not to mention there's no need to transfer or Re-buy games bought from PSN. One can just re-download them on new system and continue playing them (on both). Giving you even more games.
The list gives us: Horrible games Mini games Multiplatform games
Even outside of Vita titles, there is an awesome backlog of PSone classics and more available on the system for cheap! I ended up also trading in physical versions of PSP games, and then buying them again on PSN. There's a lot to love~
yeah look at the double standards. nintendo fans laugh and talk crap about vita then when wii u is the exact same thing but worrse they want to cry about it. i know playstation fans havent been bashing the vita and xbox fans dont even have a handheld. only people bashing the vita has been nintendo fanboys so wii u getting bashed is only fair.
The people complaining about the Wii U are mostly sony fanboys who don't even own the system. They just want to see Nintendo fail, which will never happen because Nintendo always make the best games.
Nintendo doesn't always make the best games
They stopped having good games since the 64/gamecube IMO ;)
@ LOL_WUT Mario Galaxy disagrees with you.
Are those actually real games...?
Can we have a single nonnegative Nintendo article without someone pushing something Sony related straight from the start.Really, just one? If its not someone trying to praise Sony's devices/actions over Nintendo then its someone trying shift the topic of discussion to Sony products.
Thats right, Wii U owners are all happily busy playing Rayman Legends right now ......I joke, I joke :)
If only more people around here had a sense of humor, lol.
Those disagrees come from those who are not happily busy playing Rayman Legends right now ;)
I'm just waiting for Zelda Wii U and super smash bros. Those are the games I usually buy all Nintendo home consoles for. And the new pikmin looks great as well. Sure, there are a ton of games for the system, but maybe not the right ones needed for the high uptake Nintendo is hoping for, imo.
There's content there. It's a matter of whether or not a person is willing to pay $350 for it. For those (mostly fans, I would guess) who have already made that investment, there's definitely some stuff on there. Not a lot, but some. VC games for starters, some indie games, Monster Hunter, Lego, and the third party ports if one has not played them on another console yet.
It's not much of a list convincing people otherwise. 3 of those are already out on other consoles, and quite frankly the rest is not all that interesting. The only two that I'd probably want to play is Super Mario Bros U and Monster Hunter.
Hell yeah there is there's......um wait a sec, what about....uh, well how about...... Well I'll be hornswaggled I can't think of any.
yup it feels like one Wii U game comes out every month
Then people would buy the console.
In addition to the obvious games, I strongly suggest Nano Assault Neo on the E Shop to help people get through this drought. Simple, great looking little shooter with an interesting take on the genre - and only 10 bucks. When I say drought, I don't mean that there's nothing to play. Only that there are few games that are compelling enough to keep you coming back. I'm REALLY looking forward to E3. Nintendo has to come through, and I trust that they will.
The problem is that a lot of these games are current gen ports or Wii games
I haven't played mine in a few months but I did have fun with super Mario u and ninja gaiden RE before I sold them. And I also loved the rayman legends demo a lot too. Other than that, I haven't had much incentive to turn it on in a while. But that should change around late summer/ early fall :D
There's a lot of decent games on the Wii U - I own 4 at the moment with a few more still to get - but there's none of the big Nintendo hitters that will sell the console at it's current price. New Super Mario Bros. U is a big name, but it's not a main line Mario title like Mario 3D Land on 3DS or Mario Galaxy on Wii. New Mario, New Zelda, New Mario Kart and Smash Bros. and to a lesser extent the likes of Pikmin 3, Wonderful 101 and Bayonetta 2....those are the games that will sell the Wii U to people. Rayman Legends would have been another, but Ubisoft had a brain fart and chose to not capitalise on a sparse release schedule where people were crying out for a quality title....and they will suffer for that come September.
to not release rayman was completely ridiculous.
And somewhere it's sitting in a warehouse ready to ship.
Actually, people who complains are usually the ones who dont own a WiiU. People with a WiiU are busy, you know. Playing.
