VideoGamer: "Even reading that title makes the whole argument seem preposterous. A disastrous console launch suddenly turned around by a second-tier Nintendo threequel? Not very likely, is it? Or is it?"
Lots of news on Pikmin XD!
No, not on it's own. But it's a damn good start on the road to get there.
this is a good start but wiiu needs more games, that's the only thing that could save the wiiu right now
That's what his "Good start" was implying...
I wish Nintendo would not region-lock their games and console. It's the only thing preventing me from buying their console.
Not the greatest reason presently. The Japanese library and western libraries are pretty much the same.
From where I live, they only have Japanese version, I want to buy English version as I don't understand Japanese. If I bought a console in where I live, I couldn't import an English version of the game, I have to import an English version of the console too. See where I'm going. As for PS3, I can buy any version and import any version of the game (US, European, etc.)and I don't have to worry that it might not work with my PS3. I bought a Wii in New Zealand when I was on vacation there, I can only play UK or PAL version of the game. I don't want to buy another Wii just to play a NTSC version because of where I live right now. Region locking any games is really lame.
@Chadoban- Pretty much this, When the Wii U starts getting some powerhouse titles then its sales will pick up.
Wii U doesn't need saving but hopefully this is a right step in the direction of stoping articles like "the Wii U needs saving" from popping up all over the place. Who am i kidding people still think the 3ds needs saving -_-
Wii U doesnt need saving... Oookay. We'll see how that plays out, come next year when the Wii U is struggling to keep up and compete with PS4 and XB1. We'll compare console sales and game sales and other yummy good statistics, and when you see Sony and MS totally smashing on Wii U...I'd love to see what your go-to defense reply is gonna be. Wake up and smell the roses, yo. Not only does Wii U need saving, but Nintendo as a general whole...needs saving. Ya know what Nintendo reminds me of now? Michael Jackson. Both were/are obsessed with little kids and casual kiddie gimmicks. Mario, Zelda, Pikmin...ponies, roller coasters and neverland. LMAO.
Ummm put that joint down their stocks went up 4% the highest it's been in 2 years so guess what troll harder.
Nintendo's current stock: 17.44 http://money.cnn.com/quote/... Sony's current stock: 22.59 https://www.google.com/fina... Microsoft's current stock: 32.01 https://www.google.com/fina... I still see Nintendo being the lowest of the 3 big names, here.
As far as your stock comparison goes Shadow, you would have to agree that console gaming is honestly the smaller part of both Sony and Microsoft within those corporation's numbers. I can only guess that off the top of my head, Nintendo stock is only worth roughly 77 percent of what Sony's is. Are you suggesting that Sony's gaming division makes up 77 percent of their worth as to outweigh Nintendo which is a pure game manufacturer? I am the one LMAO at you cause Michael Jackson's chimp had more common sense..
Aren't you adorable ^.^
@live2play Well yes, actually I am adorable. Thanks for noticing. ^_^
@ Shad0wRunner Nice post ;) +1 Fanboys here hate hearing the truth.
Im not sure what land you live on, but reality says Nintendo isn't going anywhere. You would bring up Michael Jackson. Desperate attempt to justify your fetish of blood, guts, and mindless violence in exchange for creativity. Sony is in financial trouble. Microsoft doesn't sell in Japan.... So... maybe the best thing to do would be to recognize that you're afraid, and in denial... about video games...
Why do you trolls always seem to forget 3ds has been the number 1 selling console like 3 months straight worldwide? And there has been at least 3 3ds first party titles in the top 10 consistently too. Why do you folks think wii U is the only thing nintendo is selling right now?
The 3DS is not a console, for one thing. It's a handheld. And we do not compare handhelds to consoles.
Really. Then why is it that last week everyone was saying how much better Vita is doing in comparison to Wii U? That "we don't compare consoles to handhelds" argument is completely bogus. People constantly do it and it's because dedicated handhelds have evolved into machines with features and functionality quite similar to their console counterparts. The 3DS has the specs to play Wii games; so why not compare it to consoles? Same with the Vita which Sony practically marketed as a portable Playstation 3.
Nintendo never needs saving cause their fanbase is hardcore, period. The ones saying they're doomed is delusional.
The Wii U is in a very tight spot and in need of games. Saying it doesn't need "saving", meaning more games, as that's what will save it, is ridiculous. It's not selling because there aren't enough big hitters. Pikmin 3 isn't a huge game, but it's certainly bigger than just about any other Wii U game atm.
i see a nintendo fanboy has disagreed with you. they are in denial and when you are in denial as a fan you can help lead to the downfall of what you love in this case you fanboys arent helping nintendo by telling them they dont need more games and giving people with good honest opinions and facts disagrees.
Will it save the Wii U? No. Will it help towards its recovery? Absolutely.
No. Casual babby shit.
Oh look, casual trolling.
You don't know what Pikmin is do you?
Looks like you have the grammar of a baby. Maybe you should play Pikmin.
pikmin is more deep and involving than dozens of today gritty games that play themselves your way of thinking is Casual
Your taste isn't the most important, maybe to you it is. Casual makes more the most business, but I'm more of a niche guy so i see your point too.
Iltapalanyymi lol your name sounds like baby talk.
N4G idea of casual: games that doesn't involve gore, guns and boobs.
Casual Babby?, WTF is that supposed to mean?, gtfo you lame troll!
What a pointless article.
