Nintendo Will Be the Video Game Winner This Holiday Season

While Microsoft and Sony have received the bulk of gaming-related coverage going into the holiday shopping season, Nintendo could be the single company most poised to benefit. (Industry, PS4, Super Mario 3D World, Wii U, Xbox One)

The power of having games and having a low price. Though I'd imagine they could be wrong here. Consumers typically go for new things. I still have my money of ps4 winning with wii U close second. Just not hearing the buzz for xbone so I expect that to hit 3. Though something can be said for how aggressive nintendo's marketing team has been lately.

Most would continue to spread rumors about Xbox when it is the actual opposite. The system is doing fine even if most Sony fanboys on this website don't want to believe it.

I have to say, I wasn't excited about 3dworld until it was actually on sale and everyone was saying good things about it. The game makes me feel like a kid just like Nintendo always manages to do.

Microsoft's advertising for Xbox has started making me think twice about the console as well...

I hope they all win. It's only good for everyone.

I already know WiiU will be in last place for Christmas and this generation.

The more I look at 3D Mario World the less interested I am. It's essentially New Super Mario Bros Wii but in 3D which I wasn't a fan of that game. It's looks too simplistic and kiddy compared to Mario Galaxy, Sunshine, or 64. I would say it's nice to own if you have a Wii U already, but it's certainly over-hyped game that shouldn't be considered a system seller.

I went from kinda of salivating on the Wii U because of the new Mario game, too not even caring about trying the game. The Wii U is Bayonetta or nothing right now.

most of the new bundles are sold out so thats a good sign. i work at target and for the past few months iv been hearing less of "wats a wii u?" and more of "when will you get more in??" lol. still, i know that doesn't mean this happening EVERYWHERE but it is nice to see people have intrest in the console. :D Hope everthing goes will for Nintendo this Christmas.

I think the PS3 will outsell them all this holiday season.

There's always potential, but it always depends. I could put my money on anything, but we're never really certain.
WeAreLegion  +   801d ago
Lol. No. I like Super Mario 3D World, but it has no staying power.
Yep  +   801d ago
That's a bold statement to make considering that would make 3D World the first major Mario game to actually have no staying power.
WeAreLegion  +   801d ago
No, it wouldn't. I mean on a personal scale. It's a one and done deal. No replay value.

i just beat it,(just main story)
that final boss was so amazing

But even though i beat the main game there is still soooo much to do, going to be playing this game for a while thats for sure.

I plan on grabbing a Wii U by the end of the year.
It's the only recent console I can say that for, truthfully.
SpiralTear  +   801d ago
I think this will depend a bit on how well Sony and Microsoft keep their new consoles in stock. If shortages happen and Nintendo keeps things going with Super Mario 3D World and their surprisingly aggressive marketing lately, we could see the Wii U be a bigger hit than many might expect.
