Wii U is better than Xbox 720, PS4 or PC


I was a lot more impressed with it than I was expecting. Even just being able to switch back and forth between a game and the other apps was pretty cool. We were collecting all the Star Coins in Mario and would switch back to the browser with a page describing the hidden locations. It worked brilliantly; maybe the load time between apps could have been quicker, but it wasn’t unbearable and they’re addressing that in the next batch of firmware anyway. (PS4, Wii U, Xbox One)

lool the Wii U would really have to step up its game by E3 or at E3 because it cannot compete the 720 and PS4 at this stage

The Wii U can barely keep up with the 360 and the PS3, so how the hell is it going to be better than unannounced consoles? ;)

May I see your crystal ball,author?

We haven't even got full detail information for those systems, let alone games and system price, so how do we know if the wii u is going to be the best?

@Zezo: I'm not sure the author has a 'crystal ball'...
... but judging from the article, I'm pretty sure he's got some crystal meth....(!)

As far back as the N64 I've managed to get every new Nintendo system at launch and I can honestly say that the wii u has definitely been the least fun/impressive so far.

N64 blew me away, GameCube had some good launch games, Wii was unique and had fun party games but the wii u has just been "meh" for me. Major dust collector.

I do not fancy the Wii U but a console being best or better is a matter of personal choice. If your favourite games are present on a certain console then it is the best one for you. Nintendo fans buy Nintendo consoles for the Nintendo first party games alone so for them Wii U is the best console. For others it may be not.

MikeMyers  +   1029d ago
The headline is nothing more than to generate hits. It doesn't explain anything about the other systems.

"I’m really not interested in the other next gen boxes, no matter the rumored specs and the hype. I like Nintendo’s games and their philosophy about keeping game development a self-sustainable enterprise, rather than something that’s mainly just profitable for the mega-conglomerates who can afford it."

That's all he really says. Article is a waste of time.

The PS4 or Xbox 720, I might be willing to let slide, I don't agree with it at all, but whatever, he must have some opinion.

But when you factor PC vs. Wii U, LOL.

The PS4 and maybe 720 are made to compete alongside PC's. The Wii U is just there in the middle of last and next Gen in it's own corner.
Shnazzyone  +   1028d ago
kinda nice after daily wii u is doomed articles honestly. Good to see someone brave enough to go in the other direction with the flamebait.
LOGICWINS  +   1029d ago
"Better" is a very subjective term. To a person who believes that Nintendo franchises are the end all be all of gaming, the Wii U actually WOULD be a better option than the PS4/720.
mcstorm  +   1029d ago
That’s very true. Its just like anything in life. For me the surface and windows phone fit my needs better than the Android or Apple eco system.
The wiiu is getting a lot of digs on this web site at the moment and it should not be as it is not a bad console. Yes it wont be as powerful as the ps4 and we are expecting the next xbox to be more powerful than the wiiu to. That said the wiiu offers a different way to play games over the ps4 and more than likely the next xbox so some types of games will work better than others on the wiiu and some will not work as good.
I think the wiiu with the tablet controller would work with gamea like command and conker as games like this don’t work that well with a controller.
But one thing we all know is that the one company that knows how to get the most out of there hardware its Nintendo and once we get the big name games we will start to see what the wiiu can do.
For me though I would rather have the ps4 next xbox and wiiu all offer us different ways to play games as it gives us gamers a reason to own all 3 consoles.

Shnazzyone  +   1028d ago
This article in a nutshell,
Features seem solid, I like nintendo games so I like it, it'll be inexpensive to develop for compared to pc & ps4(basically the same thing) in the next gen.
I like nintendo, I like nintendo. There's some good games coming.
zeal0us  +   1029d ago
Yay lets compare a console thats on the market to two consoles that has yet to hit the market.

The best thing you can do is wait till all 3 are out then make the comparison.

"Yoga Fire! Yoga Fire!"

Yeah, that was Flamebait.

I like the WiiU and it may become my only console for a while.
But even I can see strong points in each of the companies and exclusives that I want to try-out.

Still, as a Nintendo fan I am glad to read that someone is happy with WiiU all of the "WiiU Doomsayers" are too plentiful and they seem to live and eat Flame.

Sanquine90  +   1028d ago

CouldHaveYelledUiiW  +   1028d ago
We all have our preferences-

I call myself a "Fanboy" because of my preferences not because I have an unhealthy desire to see other companies FAIL.

As I said above:
"But even I can see strong points in each of the companies and exclusives that I want to try-out."

I think that every company in consoles are vital to the CONSOLE industry,
and that every company is idea to my Personal Vision of where I want (and have always wanted) gaming to go and be.

If you don't like my person favor of Nintendo or if you just HATE Nintendo, I can understand the disagrees.

Personally, "I am glad to read that someone is happy with WiiU."

Um...isn't is a bit early to be making such statements? Especially considering...y'know...two of those three consoles haven't even been released yet.
WeAreLegion  +   1029d ago
I currently own two Wii U games. Lego City: Undercover and New Super Mario Bros. U.

I have beaten NSMBU and may never touch it again. It wasn't as fun as NSMB. It's like they just tacked it together. :/

I love Lego City: Undercover. It has its flaws, but it's a great game! I just wish the grappling hook could be used like the one in Just Cause 2. Oh well. Wishful thinking.

Still...that's it. Game and Wario doesn't come out until June. After that, I'm not even sure what I'll have to look forward to.

The Wii U was a gift and I don't sell gifts, so I'm keeping it. I just hope Retro and some of the other internal studios at Nintendo are working on some great games. I want Super Mario Galaxy 3, Pokemon Snap 2, and a TRUE Wario Ware.

The one thing that is missing for me personally is the 3D mario somersault jump, you know the one where you run one direction and then switch directions and press A. I know its not a 2D mario thing, but if they put wall jump why not that one. I could control mario in the air to perfection if that was on.

Also why must we play with the damn D-pad of the wii remote its a pain in the ass if your with friends. I should be allowed to use a nun-chuck.

Neko_Mega  +   1029d ago
So a system that gets leftovers from 360/PS3 and some new titles is better then PS4/720? Don't make me laugh, the gamepad has limited range and they been making updates to fix how slow it is to load up.

Plus theirs no way it can be better then PC, seeing how a PC can run it's games with no problem.
krazykombatant  +   1029d ago
Even if the range was huge you would complain about the fact that, its a console you wanna sit in front of the tv..

The load times yes no excuses on nintys part.

This is a flamebait article one of hundreds to grace us here on n4g. No console would ever pass a PC.
mrmancs  +   1029d ago
"maybe the load times between apps could have been quicker" one of the first things the writer of this opinion piece written , a piece that claims the wiiu is Better than upcoming consoles and pc! All together now... mass *facepalm*

Whymii  +   1029d ago
Colecovision is better than Wii u, PS4 and Xbox 720 combined. It is 10 times more powerful than than a Wii u, does twice the teraflops of the PS4 and 720 and its controller has 91 buttons, a 12" 3D retina display, 3 analog sticks, 4D motion control and has a range of 27 miles.
Whymii  +   1029d ago
Only Nintendo, Sony and MS fanboys could possibly disagree with the facts. The only platform that comes close to the Colecovision is the Intellivision, but it's only half as powerful and not much better than the Pippin.
Whymii  +   1029d ago
I seriously hope that the people clicking on disagree do know that it's a joke.

Either they're protesting at my sad attempt at mocking an article that is clearly designed for hits. I mean come on, one of the systems has only been announced and the other is pure speculation.

The other possibility is that some people are such fanboys that they just click disagree with anything that they think is written negative about their system of choice without even checking the facts. Sad, but true.

Only thing it's won so far is launching 1st. Until the other 2 has launched, saying one is better then 2 systems not even out yet means nothing. Until then e3 should be good.

Edit: Im not even a pc gamer but to say the wii u is better then a pc. That writer is definitely on drugs lol.

The wii u isn't even better then the orig xbox or ps2! you think cause the controller has a screen on it, it makes it next gen? what a gimmick i remember when u put the memory card in the dreamcast it had a screen in it too and it failed because of the same reason the pee u is going to fail no 3rd party support.
