Wii U Leads All Platforms in Number of Exclusives at E3, Vita and PC Tied For Least

Joel Taveras writes, "It’s funny how these things work themselves out. Apparently when no one was looking, Nintendo’s Wii U, which has actually been somewhat of an anomaly at E3 this year, is the platform with — by far — the highest number of exclusive titles at the show. No, really."

It makes sense since Nintendo loves to focus on their main mascot Mario and pals. The other two consoles are pretty much third party multi platform now.

LOGICWINS1057d ago

"Quality over Quantity" comments incoming despite the fact that 95% of the people here haven't played any of these games lol.

JoelT1057d ago

Insert "Brace Yourself" meme here.

Wenis1057d ago

Not to mention that most Nintendo exclusives are quality games. Its a big reason why 3rd parties don't like Nintendo consoles, too much competition from Nintendo themselves

LOGICWINS1057d ago

^^Yeah, Bayonetta 2 looks sick. I'd happily buy a Wii U if it had more games like that and several exclusive JRPGs.

NobodyImportant1057d ago (Edited 1057d ago )

Super Mario 3D world - looked a little samey to all the other 3D marios ...but I'd probably get it (if I had a Wii U) as the main 3D Mario titles are always good and I loved Galaxy.
Smash Bros, looks the same as Melee and Brawl. Not interested at all.
Windwaker - beaten it twice on my Gamecube already. Is the upgrade to HD really so good that it's worth playing through the game a 3rd time? Probably not for me.
Bayonetta 2 - not interested in hack slash, ninja gaiden, God of War stuff.
X looks really good.
What else is there guys? Any big openworld RPGs? Any online co-op/multiplayer games with decent graphics coming out? Not interested in local play.
I guess that isn't the point to Nintendo. It's all about Mario, but it would be good to have some variety.
EDIT: I'm asking genuinely. Not trying to put anyone's back up.

Wind Waker HD without cel-shading? dafuq

New Mario game looks EXACTLY like Mario 3D Land on 3DS, which means it'll probably be way too easy and-short (first hand experience).

Wii Fit is not even a game.

Otherwise, things are looking good.

yeh but how many of them actually coming out in 2013 is the biggest question, its amazing how badly nintendo planned for wiiu. Launch with a confusing name and don't have many games

sony and ms atleats showed a lot of games coming in 2013, also some of the better games aren't even coming to wiiu

titanfall an impressive exclusive

anything that's not coming to wiiu is exclusive for ms and sony lol, UBI the strongest supporter of wiiu have even said they are scaling back

http://www.nintendolife.com...

MGS5 the best looking game i have seen to date, i was amazed how great it looks

how come nintendo keep making the same IP's and its fine but if sony or ms make one too many gears of god of war than its milking the franchises, Nintendo has been milking their Ip's for 2 plus decades

Dgander1057d ago

There is actually at least one Nintendo exclusive releasing every month from now until next year. Six games in six months. They were not shown at this Nintendo direct but they were shown in ones before. By the time all those games are released it will be 2014.

showtimefolks1057d ago

Dgander

really i am sorry i didn't know that, wiiu is a very good system missing what matters most and that's games, since 3rd party publishers have pretty much left wiiu high and dry its time for nintendo to give it the proper support it deserves

its still mind boggling to think nintendo didn't plan out better when they saw ps3 struggle so much without much software support for first few years

Dgander1057d ago

@showtimefolks You dont have to apologize. 3rd parties abandoned the Wii U. There seem to only be 12 announced 3rd party games so far that was announced and the only only ones im getting are Watch Dogs and Arkham Origins. Might get AC and Rayman but it depends on how i feel. However Iwata did say there are more unannounced 3rd party games that they will announce in later Nintendo directs but i still dont think it will be as much. I expect to see more 3rd party support when sales pick up later this year.

ChickeyCantor1057d ago

"f sony or ms make one too many gears of god of war than its milking the franchises, "

It's the counter argument to those who make the claims about Nintendo to begin with.

It's to point out that every successful franchise will have more.

Triforce0791057d ago (Edited 1057d ago )

X killed it and its open world i mean seamless open world.

Plus in this 13 game list there missing Smashbros,and lots of eshop games but most of them are on steam as well but that's pc,so you can add at least another 13 titles to that list.

Then u have the best versions of games like Splintercell blacklist and Batman origins ect so i suppose if your talking only on nextgen consoles then you can add a few more as well.

E3 is NOT a PC expo.

E3 is ALL about the Consoles and very little PC ONLY product is at E3.

E3 = NO Valve No Blizzard No Bohemia Interactive NO CCP Games etc.

Wait until Gamescon and you will see PC Exclusives GALORE.

Besides I already have plans for 15 plus PC Exclusives for the rest of 2013 that have yet to release like Total War Rome 2, DayZ Standalone, etc..

PurpHerbison1056d ago

I know you don't like me, and hell I don't like you either but can you elaborate a little on that 15+? I am honestly curious and want to know if anything interests me from your list.

What they had looked good,I just wished we got to see the new zelda!

Qrphe1057d ago

PC has the least number of exclusives...at E3. What a big deal, the truth is the total opposite of that.

JoelT1057d ago

Weird, that was written in January, and completely unrelated to what's being shown on the show floor at E3 2013.

LOGICWINS1057d ago

Yeah, most of the games on that list were probably announced in 2012. So the real figure of exclusive 2013 PC releases might really be closer to 90-100 when you factor in PC games coming in 2013 that were announced AFTER this list was created.

aquamala1057d ago

and the way they count it PS4 only has 5 exclusives, 2 vs 5 a big difference?

stragomccloud1057d ago

The advantage of being able to self publish on PC. PC FTW.

porkChop1057d ago

Who the hell made this chart? According to this chart there are only 5 Vita games on the show floor, when in fact there are 37 Vita games being shown across 82 Vita stations. Seriously. If you're going to make some "official" list, then fucking do it right you jackass.

porkChop1057d ago (Edited 1057d ago )

When someone flat-out lies to make a platform look bad? It's annoying. For them to claim how many games are being shown for each platforms, it means they actually went to see all the games and platforms on the show floor. So they would have known there's more than 5.

This list doesn't even include The Walking Dead even though it's on the show floor and the Vita version was specifically talked about at the Sony conference.

I mean when this list is talking about how many exclusives each platform has, yet is missing almost 90% of the games for a platform, then how can it be given any credibility? How can it be taken seriously?

mydyingparadiselost1057d ago (Edited 1057d ago )

Sorry, wrong place for comment :]

porkChop1057d ago (Edited 1057d ago )

No. The chart lists all games for all platforms and counts the exclusives. It says there were only 5 Vita games on the show floor when there are actually 37.

TheDivine1057d ago

I love my vita but Sony is flopping harder than the dreamcast (it actually had games). P4 is great but come the best game on the system is a last gen port. I'm disappointed. 3ds gets a dozen Nintendo exclusives, SMT4, Devil Survivor 2 Code Break, Project X Zone, a friggin sequel to A Link to the Past, Mario and Luigi Dream Team, MH4, exc and vita gets psn arcade ports. The only games announced are ps2 GOW ports, walking dead port, a flower port, and another KZ we're in trouble.

Where's Demons Souls for vita, FF Type-0, Star Ocean, Valkyrie Profile, GOW, Syphon Filter, Infamous, MGS, a new Persona, SMT games (those are all on 3ds I suppose), Tales, another Uncharted, AC, Red Dead, GTA, Ni No Kuni vita exc. Pretty disappointed.

Firan1057d ago

Syphon Filter games were pretty fun for PSP. Gotta wonder why Sony hasn't made one for Vita.

Triforce0791057d ago

Stop whining is the vita still alive ????? hahahaha
