Laser Lemming Takes to metacritic to find out which 8th Gen Machine has the best launch day exclusives.
X1, PS4 then Wii U... Keyword launch titles ;)
You can't fight facts Wii U haters
You also cant fight the WiiU's poor sales numbers. @Below Calm down, i was just replying to his comment. His comment isn't fact its opinion. "The fact that the Wii U had more and critically better games at launch is a fact." Oh, you're one of those guys that doesn't understand the concept of opinions and refuses to accept other peoples. *Walks away*
And sales numbers have anything to do with the launch exclusives how? Are you just trying to start up a dumb argument?
The fact that the Wii U had more and critically better games at launch is a fact.
I personallly can't, but i think nintendo's list of exclusives for the next few months i'll do a bloody good job. The sad thing about this article is that it confirmed something i've always known and hated. and thats that hype wins. if you can get the mob on your side it doesn't matter if you have the best product or the best games. And Sony are masters of hype.
@wheresmymonkey And they are masters of games too........they are KNOWN for their exclusives. Your statement makes no sense. Look how many exclusives came out for the PS3 in this year alone. TLOU > anything that is currently on WiiU. But hey, that's just my opinion! @below I know, i went a little off-topic there, i apologise. Its still all a matter of opinion though when it comes to who has the best launch games. And MONKEYDLUFFY was expressing his/hers as fact.
@Lukas - this article is about LAUNCH exclusives. Not exclusives in general. Nobody is denying the fact that Sony doesn't have good exclusives. All 3 consoles have great exclusives, they act as the deciding factor for the most part when it comes down to which console you want to buy. -EDIT- Lukas, I agree that any opinions about launch titles are simply that, OPINIONS. If the launch titles you played for your console are fantastic to you, then that's all that matters.
Lol, suddenly sales numbers are important.
OMG You opened pandoras box. ROFL
@ wheresmymonkey bubs up for intelligent post. Sony have the mob on their side due to a stack of good games towards the end of ps3 lifecycle so they trust Sony to deliver a great product this time round. Unfortunately it means that some people now struggle to be objectiveand look at the packages on offer. If yyou're objective you will look at whats on offer and see Nintendo currently has the best offering, however I do concede this could change over the next 12 months. I am pleased to be a Nintendo fan and hope they continue to churn out great quality titles.
Here is a question, who still plays the last of us? If you judge it as a game then it will fall short. this is why the station is more telling in sonys play station... they should drop the idea that they make games and embrace that they are just a media company trying to creat an interactive tv station with a different distribution system that can play games also. ive come to this conclusion because sony has failed time and time again to beat nintendo at their own game. They simply mimicked nintendo with their kart racing, smash clone, crash died and even came out on the game boy. The ps move yet no games even on par withwhat ms had... it was nice that everyone believed no one liked nintendo franchise thing nintendo listened to fans and fixed most of their gameplay engines... then sales exploded. Yet when someone complains about what sony is lacking we are dismissed, then the sales slump. truthfully people are buying ps4 off hype and hope right now. The graphics are great but if you think that way then ms ryse should also warrant a purchase. Or maybe the ps4 is bought just to teach ms a lesson. I wont be teaching any company a lesson, if they make what people want then people will continue to buy. What happens if all those sales where just scalpers, its happened before.
Guess that means wii was the best system ever then. And ps3 was the worst for most of the last gen. Glad to know sales numbers matter again.
I got a WiiU on launch and there was very little for to get. If you are a gamer who has a 360, PS3 or PC you most likely will have played many of the WiiU launch games when they released originally. There was ZombieU and Super Mario, that was it.
same with ps4 and xbox one bro, same games from this gen, with a one or two exclusives, it seems Mario from Wii U launch have a higher rating then all 3 systems first party exclusive
PS4 and Xbone have games from this gen as well, but those games didn`t launch a year ago and only a few weeks before the consoles came out so if you planned on getting one of those consoles you could just wait the 2-3 weeks until you buy the game and play it on the new consoles. Since I didn`t buy any of those games on current gen I have a huge amount of games to play now. When I got my Wii U I had all of those multiplatform games finished long before the console came out so I was stuck with Super Mario and ZombiU until the Lego Undercover came out.
nintendo is literally the only company with exclusives no denying that hands down destroys when it comes to exclusives. Sony and Microsoft have lost perspective in whats "Gaming" in my hey day final fantasy on xbox was unheard of even taboo even sonic teaming up on a nintendo system. all this is all for publicity we all know who the foundation of gaming but you always need comptetion for the crowd. example wrestling was at its highest when there was WcW and WWF only example i could think of lol
True Wii U did have better exclusives at launch but it also lacked a lot of Third party games or the third party games they had lacked features, DLC, online, or cost too much (Mass Effect 3 full price while other consoles got the Masst Effect TRILOGY for the same price). That's the main problem with Nintendo consoles ... the third party games are either missing, come out late, are inferior versions, the fans don't buy them, third parties don't advertise the Wii U versions ... lots of problems all revolving around third parties.
I am not sure if my WiiU has even been turned on for 3 hours total since I got it on launch day.
missing out on a lot of great games then, unfortunately. I would recommend NSMBU, ZombiU, Lego City, Pikmin 3, Rayman Legends, Wonderful 101, Lego Marvel Superheroes, Wind Waker HD, Need for Speed Most Wanted, plus a bunch of indie titles I don't want to list. Those are just games that I have personally played and loved. Not to mention Mario 3D World releases tomorrow, and based on every single review out there, we all know how great that game is supposed to be.
Sounds like you shouldn't have bought it then. Maybe research before you buy and you wouldn't have that problem. I am enjoying mine plenty, and have had sessions much longer than that.
I am waiting for Zelda. But I never ever would be buy a multiplatform game for the WiiU. Heck I am not sure I bought a non first party game for the Wii.
Why did you buy it then?
Both Xbox One and PS4 have some good games and some bad games. Xbox has Forza, Dead Rising and Killer Instinct. PS4 has Killzone, Resogun and Flower. It's all about the multiplatforms at the moment though, wait a year and then compare game line-ups.
Statistically speaking, the Wii U.
LOOOOOL! wii u what who?
For me Xbox One. I'm loving KZ and Resogun but I'm looking forward to more at launch on XB1. haha people now talking Wii U I forgot about that thing.
Oh no! An article that shows Wii U has better launch games than Ps4?! Holy shit no way. Impossible! Ps4 always wins! FYI *Sarcasm*
nothing you can say will convince people that zombieU was a good game and that it could even be compared to the launch titles on PS4 and xbox one. that game was hot garbage and if it were released on a sony or microsoft platform, where games of that genre have standards, it would have "duke nukem forever" style scores. and it wouldnt have nintendo websites bolstering its metascore.
Xbox one, ps4 and wii u are pretty equal imo. I had a ton of fun with nintendoland and zombi u was okay too.
yes wii u did have the best launch games over the ps4, and wait until mario 3d world and mario kart and smash bros, get going! the wii u is going to have a great life!
Wii U, pretty much. I know I had a lot of fun playing Mario Bros. U, Zombi U and even Nintendoland.
