Mario Kart 8 Wii U Nintendo Preview (Cubed3)

"If it isn't broken, don't fix it usually applies to long-running Nintendo titles like Super Mario Bros. and Super Smash Bros. Nintendo is known to refine the core concept for sequels, adding a dollop of something innovative here and there to keep the momentum going. That's been the case with the more recent batch of Mario Kart racers on both home and portable consoles: core racing formulas with something new added to the mix.
With Mario Kart 8 announced at E3 for a Spring 2014 release, just how is Nintendo's iconic racing series handling when zipping high definition circuits?", writes Cubed3. (Mario Kart 8, Wii U)

Best looking Wii U game yet? This could win me over to buy the U next year.

Really?

Well, different strokes and all that. Pikmin 3 looks pretty awesome, and that's only a month away. And, hell, the whole reason I bought a Wii U this week was for DONKEY KONG!

But, yeah, MK8 looks like a ton of fun, too.

But this is 1080p @ 60 FPS, isn't it?

This is why I wont waste my money on a Ps4 or X1 Unless they have a dramatic price cut.

Wii U hasn't even got started yet, Games are just going to get better and better.

Ps4/X1 still struggle to make a game half as decent as a Nintendo 1st party game.
They can have all the 3rd party support they want but it still doesn't hide the fact that they will always be 2nd best to Nintendo when it comes to good quality games and gameplay experience.

The general dynamic for the past... several generations has been to get a Nintendo console for their first-party software and a Sony console for their third-party software, as that's the only way to play all of the BEST games.
