All negative news is popular. Just look at the huge roster of "X things I hate about PS4" articles that've been coming out.

Why do Nintendo sites lately think it's only Nintendo that get negative stuff targeted at them...look at the PS3 from 2006 onwards when it launched and the Xbox One since it's reveal.

If it's bad then it's going to get reported on, most things are exaggerated, some aren't but I wish these guys would stop making Nintendo look like a victim all the bloody time when really they've gotten it pretty easy over the years compared to other companies.

Nintendo don't seem to know what they are doing with the Wii U, what do you want us to do...praise them...yeah that will show them. You know sometimes I feel like this is why they don't learn, because fans don't give them a reason to. Nintendo aren't fully to blame, fans are.

Victim complex. Similar to how certain Xbox-focused websites and Xbox fans were convinced the entire internet had been hijacked by "dem Sow-Nee fanburrs" after the Xbox One reveal went so horribly, horribly wrong.

What a load of crap. Whether Nintendo does somethin good or bad all u have is negative stuff to say, ur such a hypocrite I can't take u seriously, anyone who spends their majority of time trolling a game console are sick in the head.

U act like u was in a relationship with Nintendo and they cheated on u or somethin and ur just a bitter ex.

If u don't like Nintendo or Wii u then fine go and play somethin u do like instead of actin like a Sado and trollin every single Nintendo article.

Give it a rest seriously. So Sony fans signing petitions to bring DRM back, or the constant down-voting/trolling on Xbox One YouTube videos was just a figment of people's imagination.

" Just look at the huge roster of "X things I hate about PS4" articles that've been coming out."

Victim complex eh?

I agree is hard to root for Nintendo or praise them. Like really the company decides not to market it's system. It's best games are coming next year that is if those games don't get delayed. It has two major advantages but are not operated properly like free online gaming ;however, only like five or less third party wii u games offer online gaming none of wii u first party titles offer online. Backwards compatibility yet wii u owners have to jump hoops and loops to access their wii library......

No its isn't. That is a complete lie.

People rage when even remotely negative news is posted about Sony. On the other hand, they celebrate and promote negative news about the Wii U and Nintendo as a whole. They promote all negative rumors and opinions as 100% absolute unquestionable fact and attack anyone who says differently.

Anytime postive news is posted about Nintendo is gets ignored. When positive news is posted about Sony it gets raised to the ceiling.

This attempt at generalizing the argument fails. Nintendo get more acute negativey directed at it than any other developer/console manufacturer.

There is a HUGEEEEE difference in the way negativity is favored for the Wii U compared to any other hardware.

s45gr321848d ago

Well what is the good news. Honestly, the wii u primary audience is casuals/kids. This company is not innovating anymore whether is software or hardware. It's games are just re-skins of previous titles. Were is the marketing, the innovative games, were is the innovation of the gamepad. Hooking a tablet wannabe to a console is not innovative.

I guess we forgot about the PS3 launch and how all the Sony fanboys were crying that the media was biased and all American media wanted to see Sony fall.

How about whenever a Sony exclusive was rated low that site or reviewer was accused of being paid by MS. How about NOW that Knack and Killzone are getting reviewed low we are getting a bunch of sony fanboys saying that journalists are lazy or biased...
Hell YOU just wrote a blog about it.

How about Sony fanboys blowing up about no FCC report for the Xbox One. How about Sony fanboys declaring WiiU dead in it's first year but told the media to give Vita a year so it can have a chance.

My point:
You and two others are the biggest hypocrites this site has ever produced. It is amazing as I have said in another post how you went full on troll, not even a sliver of balance, just pure tasteless bias.

Abriael1848d ago

I can hear a fanboy crying from here.

Biggest1848d ago

I'm surprised there is actual Wii U news. Is there a special time it happens? Third leap year?

ptownjbo1848d ago

Because saying things like that is so mature. I guess everyone is drooling over the PS4 with hardware issues and Xbox One with Dead Rising 3 that looks straight out of a 360 title with sub 30fps constantly going on. All the guy is saying is that you never SEE positive Nintendo news because it never is popular to report. Only negative info is what gets to the masses. Read the article and you might understand that.

Biggest1848d ago

I'm not sure what maturity has to do with anything. Wii U news barely exists. There is far more PS3/4 and Xbox news of the negative type. If positive and negative news of the Wii U was it would still fall short of the negative news of the other companies.

Yep1848d ago

Meanwhile, as Abriel continues to attack and report any news or article that is a deterrent to the launch of the PS4.

ptownjbo1848d ago

I don't think it's fanboyism, I think it's true. When a system has been out for a year and everyone is proclaiming it to be dead and to bow down to PS4 and Xbox One, it can be damaging.

TheEnigma3131848d ago

It doesn't matter what system, negative news attracts people.

Lannister1848d ago

Because it outweighs the positive.
