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.

but I'm still buying a new console next year.
miyamoto  +   894d ago
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.

mcstorm  +   893d ago
@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.

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.

I agree regie. Only the mega hardcore ultra fanboys care about specs, the fun factor is better for us gamers.
ovnipc  +   894d ago
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.
Stroke666  +   894d ago
@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.

s45gr32  +   894d ago
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. .......
Redempteur  +   893d ago
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.
Chrischi1988  +   893d ago

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.
stuna1  +   894d ago
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.
Stroke666  +   894d ago
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
stuna1  +   894d ago

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.


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 ;)
stuna1  +   893d ago

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!?

mcstorm  +   893d ago
I agree they will never big up another product just like any other rival company would never big up another company's product.

I do agree with him though there are more games I want for the WiiU than the PS4 and Xbox one between now and march.

I am getting a Xbox one on day one as I want Forza and KI but I also want DK, Mario 3D, Sonic, Mario Kart, Super Smash Bros, Zelda HD for the WiiU and I already own Pikmin 3 and ordered Wonderful 101 today and I ive also got Pokémon X on pre order to.

But Just because I think the line up for the WiiU is better than the X1 and PS4 dose not mean that it is the same for everyone else.

There are games I fancy on both X1 and PS4 out side of what I said but I have got to a point where I have need a rest for action, Hack and slash and FPS games as the PS3 and 360 have been battered with them this current gen so the Nintendo line up is a nice change for me.

Reggie is right they have N.E.R.D developing cloud based services like how to add more power to games when online ect,and they are very much involved with cloud their Nintendo Network runs on cloud,like he said NintendoTVii is cloud,so i really like his comments on Sony/Microsoft because he's right the games will be the most important not saying we have this tech and that tech,we want to know what your going to do with that tech,its why the launch line up is weak on xbox and ps4 i mean their are no games that will sell consoles end of so after the initial sales from hardcore fans sales will drop right off,Reggie speaks sense END OF and i think Meh to ps4 and xbox1,over priced consoles with off the shelf hardware,not custom like wiiu ie the power you get from release games wont improve that much over time because with off the shelf hardware you can get almost 100% power from day 1 and Battlefield4 is 720p and will stay that going foward......

Guys this "Reggie" is the bane of Nintendo fanboys. He says "meh" to X1 and PS4's LAUNCH line up. When in reality it took Wii U a whole YEAR to come out with "Zelda, Pikmin, Wonderful 101, etc". And let's face it guys once Sony has Santa Monica, Naughty Dog, Media Molecule, and the rest of their first party revealing their titles. We'll see how arrogant Nintendo will continue to be.
Chrischi1988  +   893d ago
Lol, compared to Nintendos first party titles none of the other consoles first party titles other than maybe Halo can even come close to the success of Nintendo. The launch lineup of the 2 other consoles is a pure joke, considering the hype over those two consoles. All all can say is Hardware Hardware Hardware... look, those jaguar cores in the Playstation are pure crap, you need at least 8 to have a somehow good performance. 1 Jaguar core doesnt even come close to a IBM PowerPC Core. It lacks the needed cache for each core. Maybe somebody should tell you, that AMDs CPUs the last couple of years with its 8 core lineups didnt even come close to Intels 4 cores i-lineup, even though it had double the cores, why? Because the cores looked at as a single pretty much sucks. IBMs PowerPC cores for example are used by the NASA, so much to the cores. If they used 10 jaguar cores, it wouldnt be any better. Not saying it aint faster than the Wii U, but the difference is way way smaller than most people believe, why? Because the Jaguar cores are really bad. Look at smartphones, when iPhone5 came out and Galaxy S3. S3 used 4 cores and iPhone5 used 2 cores, but the 2 cores were just as good as the 4 in the S3. Somebody who is informed should know way better, but I dont expect that from Console gamers, but I expect that from PC Gamers, they should know better.

People just don't understand that no ones trying to take anything away from Nintendo, arrogance has no place in the industry, especially if you're not delivering on your promises or claims! The launch window is closing fast for the WII U, and outside of the few pickings here and there the majority of the launch window has been filled with games already on other systems up to a year in some cases.


So guess this is your personal trolling account, I actually replied to you thinking you had someone possibly worth listening to, until I saw you comment history started yesterday, at the rate you're going you're bubbles are not going to last very long!

Eyeco  +   893d ago
"So will you be buying KillZone 4 and Infamous 3?"

I sure as hell won't (SS maybe if it's a more expansive and refined), but if people like those games then more power to them, one thing that's promising about Playstation consoles is the major new IP's that come with each console, as well as a continuation of their last. There is always something to look forward to.

It is true that Nintendo re-invents their franchise with each release for example Zelda, although each game follows the same formula they're very different from the previous game,to deny that is pure ignorance, but that's my gripe there are so many ways to cook an egg in the end it's still an egg.
It would be extremely nice if Miyamoto would direct his talent to a new major IP, say what you want but new IP's will always be more interesting and exciting than an existing one.

"Killzone = Another shooter"

Shooters are a popular genre. If Nintendo doesn't want to get a bigger piece of that market, that's their business. I think the shooter is pretty played out also, but as long as people buy them they will be made. KZ is above average shooter gameplay with stellar visuals.

"DriveClub = Another racing sim"

Drive Club is more of a hybrid than a sim. What's the name of Nintendo's racing sim or racing hybrid? Do they have one? I really can't think of one.

"Knack = Another failed attempt at Sony trying to make a platformer"

Hard to call something a failure when it hasn't released yet. Also, Sony has brought out several great platformers in their three gaming generations.

"Multiplats = More shooters and racers"

If next gen is anything like the previous three, and there's no reason to think it won't be, there will be many genres represented, both exclusive and multi plat.

lol just wanted to point out how funny it is to hear people say give it chance its not out yet as a defense in a conversation where games that are not out yet are getting bashed(Mario Zelda Metroid). same franchise does not mean same game sunshine is not galaxy and neither are paper. just the same as link to the past is not ocarina of time and neither is twilight princess and still neither is skyward sword or wind waker. I think the wrong term is being thrown around variety by itself is too broad, you all mean to discuss QUALITY variety. If you can take an existing ip and make it feel fresh not just prettier, and maintain the entertainment value of that ip... thus far Nintendo is king of that.

SN: before I get mauled, NONE of the big thre are with out fuk ups, however despite nintendos redundancies in some of its sames like 2d marios for example they are superb at reating fresh experiences and variety

How do please tell so Mario, Luigi and Left4dead in London oh I meant zombie u. Multi plat titles from yesteryear except for the wonderful 101, Rayman legends.

Kill zone shadow fall I agree, there's too many shooters. While I may not be a fan of the genre, people keep buying them.

Drive Club is a hybrid of sim and arcade, need more info for this game.

Knack it has not been released yet but Sony Playstation platforms have brought phenomenal platformers like spyro the dragon, crash bandicoot, Jack and Daxter, ratchet and clank, etc.

From what I saw at E3 this year and read online is the push for open world games not just shooters....

'Wii U offers variety in content.'.

That's quite ironic, as both Pikmin 3 and Wonderful 101 share quite similar gameplay concepts (controlling a big group of characters and manipulating them to achieve the goal), and those two games are just about the only thing to have been released for the Wii U in months.

Where's the variety in content there?

Nintendo are just the same old tired out sequels. They need a JRPG, WRPG, FPS, Open World A/A, and a Racer that isn't Mario Kart.

There is little verity with Nintendo IMO. So, a big 'MEH' to the Wii U and it's games.

I'm excited with Zelda, DK, Mario Kart 8, Smash Bros 4, Bayonetta 2, The Wonderful 101, X and Shin Megami Tensei x Fire Emblem.

BTW, have you played those brand new titles called:

With the exception of The Witness, Everybody's Gone to the Rapture and Rime, I'm inclined to agree with him. Half the games are fps, then you've got some open-world stuff that I'm so so struggling to be interested in, and all of which feel like boring, broad triple-A usual suspects kinds of games (Infamous, Watch Dogs, AC IV), and then you've got a bunch of bland racing games. None of this stuff is even remotely innovative with the exception of watchdogs which is still gimmicky as all hell. Look at the Wii U's line-up and you see some seriously unique looking games, albeit not very many, but still.
ExCest  +   894d ago
I agree although the "good" AAA stuff at least improves on established methods. Redone and reused, but at least improved.

I consider Nintendo to be one of the few companies that actually tries something different once in a while, not just improving something older. Sometimes it may not end well, but I can give them some respect for trying.
sincitysir1  +   894d ago
i dont want to sound like a douche but i probably will. when you say "nintendo to be one of the few companies that actually tries something different once in a while" are you talking hardware or software? because to be honest they are nothing but rehashes and sequels. i like some of their stuff but i mean how many mario games are there? mario karts? sure people gobble them up but dont say they try different things because they honestly dont. and this is based purely on nintendo.

chadboban  +   894d ago

Well they do make a lot of sequels but to say what they do is "nothing but rehashes and sequels" is a bit hyperbolic. I mean there are games like Xenoblade, Rhythm Heaven, The Wonderful 101, Pandora's Tower, The Last Story, Fire Emblem and more that I won't list because I don't want to ramble.

There is also the fact that with the exception of Galaxy 2, none of the 3D mainline Mario can be compared to one another. Galaxy cannot be compared to Sunshine and Sunshine cannot be compared to 64 because they play quite differently from one another.

I will say that the New Super Mario Bros series is the definition of a rehash though, recycled music,graphics and gameplay all around. Hope we don't see that series again for a long time if not ever, unless they change things up considerably
sincitysir1  +   894d ago

MASTER_RAIDEN  +   894d ago
while youre sitting here enjoying supposed "uniqueness", players of other consoles are enjoying actual QUALITY. not saying that nintendo is incapable of quality software but lets be real here. the wii u hasnt exactly put its best foot forward since launch. the games (though somewhat varied) are seriously lacking in terms of quality. while looking at the HD side on the other hand, a lot of these games you describe as "meh" are actually game of the year material. you also have to admit that theyre not totally incapable of variety either. there are PLENTY of unique software titles on the HD consoles. there arent really that many AAA titles (unique OR conventional) on the wii u.
chadboban  +   894d ago
QUALITY as you put it is subjective. Pikmin 3 is what I would call an extremely polished and QUALITY game as well as The Wonderful 101. And their lineup for the rest of the year looks pretty QUALITY to me (won't know for sure until I play them though) Also stop using the term "HD side", the Wii U is HD so it's somewhat redundant to say that.

I do agree that Nintendo definitely hasn't put their best foot forward since launch, that drought was absolutely ridiculous and was something Nintendo should have avoided at all costs and it's the main reason they are in the position they are now in with the Wii U.

The reason I tend to own both Sony and Nintendo platforms is because they both offer me something completely different from one another. Also I have to ask, how do you measure quality? If you show me Metacritic I can't take you seriously.

That's not the point, if anyone other company had said it then fair enough it's a debatable statement especially seeing, as neither the PS4 or XB1 are out yet, so it doesn't even make sense to judge them from that standpoint.

It's just interesting that anyone from Nintendo can comment on another console's launch in a negative at this point in time, because realistically the Wii-U's entire 1st year forget launch has been "meh" I mean 160k units in 3 months is pure testament to how mediocre this year is turning out for the console.

The thing that is truly making Nintendo appealing are people who have worked on Fire Emblem Awakening, Shin Megami, in other words, the developers really need to start taking charge.

I totally agree with you, but this is a different situation. Daemon asked him what he thought of PS4's games and he wasnt too impressed. Just think about it:
Most of the PS4 games are coming to my PS3. Sony lost me when they announced that you had to have PS+ to play online. I love Sony. I love their TV's, their Laptops even their consoles (PS3, PS2, PS1) but unlike the Sony Fanboys that made fun of Microsoft for charging to play online and now are not complaining about the fact that they now have to pay to play online on the PS4, I will not buy the PS4. Maybe under one condition. Wii U stops having games which will never happen and will most likely happen to Sony and Microsoft since they dont have a strong First-Party. Im sorry Sony, you vanished the only reason to own a PS3 over an XB360 going into next gen with the PS4 and XB1. :(

Nintendo has strong first party studios and that's why I bought a WiiU for Nintendo games because everything else I will play either on PC or next gen consoles. And Nintendo games sell very good usually, but that's because there is barely anything else to buy.

Also I'm getting tired of their games, they mainly do games for the same IPs since over 20 years, they really need to start doing new stuff. I see Sony still as having the strongest first party with a healthy mix of games from known IPs and new very good IPs like we have seen this year with The Last of Us and earlier this gen with Uncharted or infamous among other new games.

People say what new stuff nintendo created think about wii sports, wii fit and etc....

I have no allegiance to companies, but a lot of yall on these websites be bullshitting....Nintendo make a lot of new stuff just like any company, but they happen to sell more.......when uncharted reach mario kart or mario levels then yall can talk.....Halo is up there but not there yet....beore Nintendo started bundling mario kart wii with the Wii they already sold over 30 million.....for any game to reach that level it would be call of duty when you add up how much it sold for each system
AceBlazer13  +   894d ago
well if every game carried the same name for generations of course they'd sell.

New stuff that isn't crap, who cares for Wii Sports or Wii fit apart from clueless kids and demented pensioners? And gamers shouldn't care about sales, so what if Uncharted or Halo don't match Mario Kart or Mario, does that mean they're not successful franchises? Get real.

Mario is in a game every few months which is why he's so popular and all the massive Mario games are massive due to bundling and huge marketing. Mario only sells so well because Mario = Nintendo, what else would kids want to play on a Nintendo console other than the next Mario game. If Mario games were released on Playstation or Xbox they wouldn't be very big and it's likely the games would be rated far less due to PS3/360 games being held to much higher standards whereas Nintendo exclusives always get a free pass for all the same problems (and more) that non-Nintendo games have.

Through siblings I've played on almost every Nintendo console/handheld since 1993, I can't say there's a single system selling franchise by Nintendo for me, the only game I've enjoyed is Zelda: Twilight Princess but even that isn't great.

I just don't like Nintendo therefore I don't like the Wii U or any exclusive games that have or will release for it, it's just 'meh' really.

Did they sell more when they made GameCube? No. Nintendo just got lucky this gen with the motion controllers hype. The hype is over now. WiiU will probably sell less than GameCube. Their luck is running out fast.
Gemmol  +   894d ago
actually they did....Mario Kart Double dash sold over 6 to 7 million I forgot smash bros but it sold very well and you can tell how many people like it since they still use it for torunaments.....remember gamecube sold 20 something million....selling 6 to 7 million for one game on a small customer base is first party need more then 20 million customers to reach 5 million for god of war on I am not bashing I am being a realist, If I was so against sony or xbox why did I own a ps3 only last gen, and before that I own a xbox.....but I also own a gamecube as my secondary......I just go where the fun is

When the Wii U launches it will probably be 'Meh' too.

Keep rehashing the same IPs over and over again, Nintendo.

Yeah I'm getting sick of Mario and Zelda. I enjoyed them as a kid but now I'm a grown man and those games are boring to me now. I gave Wii a try but it collected more dust than time played. I have no interest in buying a Nintendo console in the future.
duducus  +   894d ago
Then buy the other games they make...
HappyWithOneBubble  +   893d ago
What other games?

Nintendo rehashing games over and over is like waking up to a beautiful woman every day... you dont get tired of that... dealing with sony is like waiting on a troll to grow breast, you have to be desperate.

The ps4 and xone are like go karts trying to race an aventador. The wii at least has since to stay on the go kart track... yet I really suspose to believe those go karts are like aventador? Maybe thats why two of their games are infact about that....

you eventually get burnt out on fps though... so meh!
CaptainPunch  +   894d ago
Yes, but you'll get sick of her personality and looks do fade. The point is other developers are putting Nintendo to shame. The latest Rayman games have been better than the latest Mario games. Nintendo needs to start stepping up and rethinking their strategies.

Sorry but that was the most, nonsensical comment I've read this week,lool
jcnba28  +   893d ago
I agree. Nintendo is like that girl you fall in love with and spend the rest of your life with.

PS4 and X1 are those hot but stupid girls with no personality that you only have a one night stand with.
AfterThought  +   894d ago
I agree. I have been enjoying Rayman way more than Mario lately.

"Reggie: 'Meh' to PS4, Xbox One Launches"

says the guy that said Halo 3 wasn't a system seller, but the 360 beat the wii for sales that month.

also when the ps3 slim launched it beat the wii in sales for that month too.

WiiU sucked at launch, but now Wii U begins with Pikmin 3(my personal GOTY) and has the best exclusives line up.

People can cry about originality (that's the same who buy 10 random shooters per year), but the fact is that titles like Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze, Bayonetta 2, Mario Kart 8, Fire Emblem X Shin Megami Tensei, Yoshi Yarn, Super Smash Bros U and obviously X are going to be very high quality titles, i can not assure that for Knack, Driveclub or Ryse, even if they're new IPs they just don't appeal me.

Later we'll get things like The Order 1886 and Quantum Break but for the moment the most promising next gen titles are multiplatform (i stopped FFXIII after 1 hour, but man that FFXV trailer is the most ambitious thing i've ever seen).

And Nintendo didn't even announce the New Miyamoto IP and the Zelda...

This is coming from a huge Nintendo fan. Nintendo should be the last ones saying this. There was never as much demand for the PS4 and even the XB1 before launch and straight to this day. Nintendo has the weakest specs this gen, limited 3rd party support, gimped multiplats the whole damn 7 11. They still faltered even with year to themselves for next gen. That's what hits me. Yes Smash and stuff are coming next year, but by then people would've already gotten a PS4 or XB1. Those damn games should've been there AT LAUNCH. And to anyone that says the Wii U is the only console with free online, yes, but it's beyond bare bones. PS+ and XBL (coming from someone who's not getting an XB1) destroy Nintendo Network. At this rate, I don't see myself getting a Wii U.
