IGN:With the encroaching next gen systems on the way, Nintendo’s president shares his thoughts.
"meh to wiiU's whole year.. Ninty is the last people who need to talk.. If it's not about handheld games get in ur corner!!! The casuals are gone to ipad... So ur controller failed u trying to capture them. Nice price drop after 1 year cuz ur a bad ass." - sony lol Would be funny if companies were this honest lol
The wiiu launch sucked
And don't get me wrong I love Zelda Mario metroid but I'm not getting a wiiu till these games are out Right now there is nothing that interest me
OMG! Reggies' psychic. That the same reaction I had when I saw the Wii U only had 3 core processors! And there disappointing E3 2012. 2013 at least gave us X for Wii U and Bayonetta 2.
I'm still keeping my Wii U. but I'm still buying a new console next year.
Its not yet a year for Wii U and Nintendo is forced to cut the price? Cutting it down like the Wii U is really worth $350... Will the slash do the same thing for Wii U like it did for 3DS? PS3 is still $50 to $100 less expensive, if I may add.
Wii duUum broke Mehggie's heart.
I liked Zombi U,but other than that, I didn't really see anything worth while. They really need to release Fire Emblem, or something more spectacular.
@Murad You should give Lego City, Pikmin 3, Wonderful 101 and Mario U ago. I had never played Pikmin before but decided to grab pikmin 3 and it has to be one of if not the best game ive played this year plus makes a nice change to all the FPS games out there at the moment plus its a challenging game. I was not to sure about wonderful 101 but after playing the demo im going to pick it up later on next month as it is a really fun game too.
Reggie's got a case of sour grapes.
https://twitter.com/yosp/st... Shuhei's twitter response to Reggie
Jeez Reggie looks like crap...he looks really stressed. I think he's been working too hard, poor guy
His comment is so Reggie. Gonna piss off a lot of passionate fanboys.
Not really. Nobody really cares what the competition has to say about the competition's product.
@UltimateMaster Right... Sony's E3 and Gamescom conference's clearly demonstrated that -_-
@Pekolie The difference is that the Wii U is no competition to the PS4 or Xbox One.
I can see why he said it (just the usual PR guff) but it is hilarious what he is saying because it make him seem like a closed minded idiot. But at the end of the day you have to look at it from his point of view. They have a system that the market doesn't want and you have these highly anticipated systems coming that are doing new things the Wii U isn't.
The difference is,we don't talk about tech.we talk about the experience' I agree regie. Only the mega hardcore ultra fanboys care about specs, the fun factor is better for us gamers.
I agree but wii u has no experience only for little kids, and maybe cause kids today like shooters. Wii u has mario zelda metroid all crap that i played on the 90's. the only one that may be worth it its zelda but still not a system buy. I purchase the wii u when it came out thinking they will get more games sold that crap in 3 months.
@ovnipc...first three months what game did you get in those first three months? zombie u was a fun game despite the rushed feeling, if your not into Mario that's cool I no longer do the side scrolling marios either but the 3d marios are all good. I personally didn't play darksiders on my 360 but I got it for my wii u, was gonna get mass effect but wanted to wait for 1 and 2 to have that continuity aaaannd I still waiting on that but that's not Nintendo fault. after the first three months it became dreadful but if you sold it within three months you never gave it a chance.
So far they haven't offered me any good experience 3rd parties are the ones doing all the work. ;)
yeah, thank goodness that Reggie confirmed that "we" will all be able to experience the same characters and games with some added gimmicks as Nintendo had been offering for the past 27 years. Nintendo= sameness
While I agree with Reggies' statement is about the experience not the tech. Sadly, Nintendo doesn't offer next generation gaming experiences or a gaming experience we have not seen before like to the moon, Gemini Rue, Amnesia dark descent or Gone Home. Sony first party studios brought Uncharted (which pretty much every action adventure game tries to copy, like Remember Me, Tomb Raider, etc), LBP, etc. .......
How many mario must you play in order to not be tired of the "experience" When Every freaking year your big franchises are " mario , zelda, donkey kong" then something is wrong. Not that there aren't great games on nintendo systems , but the sheer lack of new things is sickening. And no Wonderfull101 is not enough.
In a nutshell yes, the fun factor is what matters. But modern gaming is different, a lot of gamers want both, and I today's gaming world, we can have both. I give credit to Nintendo for sticking to their gaming roots, although for the Wii U it's not looking so good! I hope the situation can change.
@redemteur: Funny u say this, tell me what else other than a freakin million of FPS Games you have on that consoles, which are even worth mentioning? Which come even close to be as good as a Nintendo original? None would be the andwer. I can give you a super long lit of games, that are more or less the same, but with a different name, at least nintendo can deliver something else.
Damn! Reggie done brought in the Nintendo brigade! No one was paying enough attention to Nintendo, so now Reggie has brought the fight to us. I don't think that I'm the only one that feels that the $50 price cut will not be enough to stave off the eventual demise of the WII U. Looking at third party for example, the WII U basically has none! Even exclusive titles are barely benefitting Nintendo, the Wonderful 101 is a testament to that. The next generation is gearing up to go into full swing, and outside of a few choice titles, the WII U will pretty much be an afterthought once the big boys enter the ring. Oh yeah I forgot to mention if you're not a Nintendo loyalist! Run for your lives, because you're about to bubbled raped, and disagreed into oblivion.
Zombi U, Wonderful 101, Rayman Legends, Assassin's Creed III, Assassin's Creed IV, that new Tom Clancy game, Call of Duty Ghosts, Watch Dogs, Need for Speed, Lego City Undercover, Scribblenauts Unlimited, Sonic Lost World. All third party games already released, or about to release only on the Wii U's first year of life. Many of these exclusive games. Next year Wii U gets Bayonetta 2 as well. While I think that the Wii U could definitely benefit from MORE third party support, to say that the Wii U doesn't have it at all is, well, ignorant.
only 5 disagrees tsk tsk loyalists, lol. I cin not tell you what the future holds however a price cut with a continued flow of games is a proven equation. Sony and Nintendo have done this and been successful at it. who will win this gen we won't kno till next gen. I am personally getting a ps4 to accompany my wii u, simply because I typically own two consoles a gen and ms is on my shit list. honestly though aside from deadrising, nothing on the ps4 line up got me excited. with wii u it was only zombie u that gotme excited, well that and mass effect cause I had hopes of the trilogy coming but that was shot down. wonderfull 101 has only released in one region so far I believe give it a chance to fully release before u claim it as proof of anything other than games are not going to sell the same all over the world
@deafdani Out of those games not released yet how many will have equal support to the PS4 or XBOX 1? Hell they are already talking about how these games will be missing major features, if and when they're ported to the WII U, COD Ghost for the WII U has been on and off the table a couple times! Zombie U long touted as the definitive zombie game has what to show for it!? Meager sales! Most of those games futures hang in the balance dependant on if the WII U sell pick up, which IMO why Nintendo is opting to reduce the price of the WII U, because they know without it the competition will be too much, even with the games you mention coming out! Ignorant not at all! A realist definitely. On a side note why do you think the 2DS is on the scene!? To stop the momentum that's about to take place on both fronts! The PS4 and Vita. @stokes666 I'm not saying I disagree with you but look at the landscape of gaming, do you think people wanted a slightly more powerful PS3/Xbox 360 with the WII U? I would say no, because if they did the WII U would be flying off shelves almost a year into it's life! Do people wanted the tablet? No, because tablets of today can do a thousand more things than a WII U tablet! You mention Zombie U, but it's performance as a launch title was mediocre at best, the same reason Ubisoft is doing some of the best flip-flopping in the industry today concerning the WII U. I welcome being wrong concerning this, but paying attention to the latest trend concerning the WII U, it's not actually looking very promising.
It is super funny, how all ps and xbox fanboys cannot remember the release of the PS3 and Xbox360^^ What is going to happen, when ps4 and xboxone get released? All will hype until then, most will buy one and buy 1 game for it and then? They will wait like 1 year until something good enough for buying it comes out. People act like XboxOne already has the games from the start, but that is not true, look at the launch lineup and then we can talk about ignorant overhyping of a console ;)
@ChrisChi1988 First off it nothing wrong with hyping a game, console, or whatever for that matter! The difference is when the hype doesn't pay off! Here is such an example, instead of flying in under the radar, what does Reggie do!? He attract attention rigft before he's about to pass out of radar range, by badmouthing the competition, so in essence he is also leaving the door open for criticism! What's so hard to under stand about that? Second when I bought my PS3, I paid $744 for it, bought 4 launch titles for it, Resistance 1, Call of Duty 3, Virtual Fighter 4, Fight Night Round 3, and Ridge Racer! On my first purchase I spent a little over $1100 after taxes! Most releases that have come out on my system of choice that I wanted I've bought. Now 7 almost 8 years into this generation I've accumulated close to 350 disc based games and at least 80 digital based games! To top it all off I own the Xbox 360 as well as a WII, but my proudest achievement is my PS2, with close to 500 games, you were saying!?
@Two bubbles- Didnt Sony drop the PS3s price less than a year after launch as well? They shouldnt talk lol.
