It is going to be a great year depending how well Nintendo can spread the games. Please no more droughts.

Wii U owners will be looking forward to play

1. Donkey Kong: Tropical Freeze
2. Mario Kart 8
3. Bayonetta 2
4. X
5. Super Smash bros for Wii U.

Plus more titles that have yet to be announced.

I agree. For me the end of this year and the start of next year is about Pikmin 3, Wonderful101, Zeda Windwaker HD, Sonic Lost World, Mario Kart, Mario 3D, Super Smash Bros, Pokémon X and X on the Nintendo Consoles.

O and ive had to buy a 2DS for my other half as she is all over Animal crossing at the moment and I want my 3ds back for Pokémon lol.

Currently people are only talking about X1 and PS4, like WiiU doesnt even exist, but once both systems launch, the flames will rise even higher and WiiU will be left in smokescreen.

I think they forgot to include the word "demise" at the end of the title.

Feocart1533d ago

Come on now, the Wii U has life. It has a fairly supportive market in the US, and you shouldn't count Nintendo out.

Only in your dreams, and sadly for you, this dream will never come true no matter how much you hope.

AsimLeonheart1533d ago

But what if it does....

Blackberry and their fans never thought it would happen to them, Nokia and its fans never thought it would happen to them, Sega and its fans never thought it would happen to them, Kodak and its supporters never thought it would happen to them, Symbian and its fans never thought it would happen to them and many other such companies. Fans never want to see the signs or admit it until it happens and they are left speechless.

I am not saying that Nintendo is doomed this gen because they definitely have a monopoly in the handheld business that makes them a lot of money. However, saying that it will NEVER happen is wrong. Nobody and nothing lives forever. Death or demise can come at any moment to anybody.

@AsimLeonheart

You just compared the mobile industry to gaming. Your argument is so fluttered.

"But what if it does...."

As long as Nintendo makes money, which in case you have not noticed they're actually pretty good at even when things look bleak, then it won't.

Same goes for Sony. The early ps3 years and vita cost of them Alot of money.

AJBACK2FRAG1533d ago

Actually, the least powerful and least expensive home video game console always wins it's generation. Ironic huh?

Nintendo will sell boat loads of pokemon x and y and will keep them afolt.

MNGamer-N1532d ago

Am I the only one who doesn't seem to care about Pokemon? Just not my flavor I guess.

JuleyJules1533d ago

I can't see that happening to Nintendo. One thing they do have going for them is the focus on family oriented games. They make kid-friendly games and others that are also challenging. They've been around for 30 years by doing this when other game companies have come and gone. By doing so they keep themselves from getting into the big competition we see between Sony & MS - not to say they aren't competing on some levels.

AJBACK2FRAG1533d ago

(One hundred twenty four years actually!)

Magicite1533d ago

Well, they hardly have any new and mature IP's, mostly some kid-stuff.

Put it this way, 2014 is the year of great consoles... except for the X-Bone.

SkullBlade1691533d ago

Implying that the Xbone is a great console...

I am looking forward to nintendos choices for wii u. When theyre cornered theyve produced some great content, in my opinion the gamecube is the best system they made since the snes, and i feel like a lot of choices made in the gamecube era were consumer based. its like they addresed criticisms like "no 3rd party (capcom deals, geist, eternal darkness, mgs, a lot of sega games, a lot of multiplats) and opened/bought western studios like retro.
With a decent amount of 3rd party exclusives like 3 game deal with sega, 2 with platinum, 1 with atlus and more on the way i think they are on the same path, hopefully this time it yields more success.

BladerunnerZX1533d ago (Edited 1533d ago )

I agree that the Gamecube is Nintendos best console since the SNES.
I like the GC controller especially for RE4 Resident Evil REmake and of course Super Smash Bros.

The Gamecube sold right at 22 million units in its lifetime, The original Xbox around 24 million and the PS2 well over 120 million.

Im not sure if the Wii U will hit even 20 million total sales by the end of its run.

For example even though a lot more people bought PS2 they still knew what a Nintendo Gamecube was and even what games were on it like Super Smash Bros.
Even the Gamecube had more third party support when compared to the Wii U.

The Wii U has no identity with the casual gaming public and is still confused with being an expensive Wii add on.

I think the Wii U is a good console and I grew up playing Nintendo since the N.E.S. days but I think the Wii U will be Nintendos last home console.

Nintendo will go strictly handheld and eventually they will put their IPs on both Microsoft and Sonys game machines.

So let the disagrees flow in from the Nintendo faithful.
This will happen. just give it a couple years ...or less.

Ol_G1533d ago

you're delusional for thinking Nintendo will go third party

ritsuka6661532d ago

OH, you are so overdramatic!

ChickenOfTheCaveMan1532d ago

I kind of agree with. If it wasn't for that wii controller gimmick, the wii would have failed and I'm not sure the wii u would have been created. I personally hate motion controller.

That new tablet controller sounds like a waste of technology, I have a 60" TV but I will look into a small screen just to get rid of the select option menu, no thanks.

Nintendo should turn back to running whore houses or become a 3rd party, they would get more money with one of those options.

truechainz1532d ago

if nintendo went handheld only then why would they bring their ips to the other consoles? I don't think that is going to happen, but it seems unlikely that Nintendo would bring their games back to a console atmosphere after moving away from it.
