Maybe in your delusional world. The WiiU has been out for a year and it has one remake of a 10 year old game and one decent game we have been playing since 96'. It has less the 1/6 the power of the next gen and will most likely not see a single 3rd party game from any publisher other then Ubisof. And i bet that runs out fast. But have fun with your system that MAYBE gets 1 or 2 games a year. All of which are 25 year old IPs. Nintendo f*cked this generation up ALREADY. Its back to the Wii Xbox 360 PS3 difference. This time the Wii U wont have all the shovel ware to build the library. You delusional Nintendo fans are hilarious. Its like your in an altered dimension.

That right there is one of the most fanboyish comments I've ever come across. People like you make gamers look dumb as hell.

VC isn't selling point. Piracy sells. And it's much easier to pirate the Nintendo games than emulate PlayStation games. I can run Nintendo games but the PS games are just too advanced for my standard computer.

Just get it trough your thick Nintendo glasses, that the only reason the Wii was a such huge seller is motion controls and it came packaged with Wii Sports.

There's more to hardware specs than just numbers on a page but this is beyond your comprehension...
Same gap as last gen lol, google diminishing returns...
Franchises that have been around for nearly 30 years and continue to stay popular is a testament to how great and relevant they still are but still you can't fathom this...
Same decent game from 96? more like amazing as usual since 85...
Sounds like someone needs to get check themselves before they reck themselves...
Lols

The gap looks the same if not better than last gen. Google launch 360 games with late-gen xbox, ps2, and gamecube games.

Even though gaming is closer to looking real life lots of stuff needs to be improved. Frames, resolution, physics, draw distance, textures etc.

WiiU games feel dated.

they really should have an online component to games like melee, or mario kart 64 or mario party 1-3, it would really tug nostalgia strings and friends that have separated can relive their memories.

dalibor955d ago

Agreed. That would be so awesome. Those games would be so much fun online. Maybe even Star Fox 64?

Concertoine955d ago

Yeah, i dont get their beef with updating old games without a complete overhaul. Like street fighter 2 is a snes port for 8 bucks on wii u, but you can get it in hd with updated graphics on 360 with online multiplayer for 10... why would i spend 8 bucks on a ROM dump.

They need to add Gamecube games

ColinZeal955d ago

Yup, if that thing would play GC games i'd instantly buy one to play Super Mario Sunshine.

You know how there's a sonic's ultimate sega genesis collection? They should come out with an ultimate n64 collection, with increased resolution and widescreen. Only problem is if they don't have rights to rareware's games, the collection wouldn't be near as good without it.

Hope Nintendo figures it out & gets it together. The Virtual Console games brings back memories, Nintendo has the chance to have one of the best catalogs of games ever compiled that is within reach at one location. More games are needed.
