Top 5 Games that make Microsoft and Sony fans Wanting Nintendo to go Third-Party

It’s pretty clear at this point that a lot of Microsoft and Sony fans want Nintendo to go third-party. Even Jason Rubin, the former CEO of THQ said he wants Nintendo to go software only. I was going to write article why Nintendo won’t go third-party anytime soon, but that type of article has been beaten to death. So I figured I can write an article on the games that drive Microsoft and Sony fans to say Nintendo should go third-party. Here are the top five upcoming games I could think of. (3DS, Nintendo, PS Vita, PS3, PS4, Wii U, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Bayonetta 2 and X are the only two I wish would be release on a different console.

Playing Mario Kart, SSB and Zelda on a different console would seem weird imho.
jackanderson1985  +   649d ago
bayonetta 2 and X aren't my kinda games so makes no difference for me... but yeah Mario Kart and Zelda on a non-nintendo console would definitely be too weird
pedrof93  +   649d ago
For me is Pokemon and Zelda. That I wish more, apart from that there isn't anything in particular.
AliTheSnake1  +   649d ago
None of these games interests me that much. Maybe Zelda, and Mario kart for Couch coop, smash brothers, it's fun but i don't like the characters, the last time most of them showed up in a game is a decade ago. They should make one with modern characters like PS all stars characters but Nintendo's style. Everything else is overrated.

I really dont see any exlusives at this point for Nintendo. Zelda is behind the times in my opinion, but gets free passes because of the name. I still got Nintendo handhelds for Pokemon, but then I played Ni No Kuni and realized Pokemon should of been to that point and more 5 years ago. Smash Bros would be the only one, but through the years most my friends have moved, so not much point in my case for a coop couch game, unfortunately because I do miss those games/memories. So really Nintendo has faded for me. They really have not made a great new experience in the past decade.

i for sure dont want Big N to go multi.. look at SEGA and what their famous franchises became.
buying Nintendo hardware is the best thing to do.
andrewsqual  +   648d ago
Well Pokemon doesn't even work on Nintendo's own home consoles because, oh, THEY NEVER RELEASED THE MAIN SERIES ON ONE OF THEIR OWN HOME CONSOLES.
Thanks for Pokemon X and Y though which is essentially Pokemon for N64 over 15 years later.

Zelda and Metroid are enough for me to dream about when Nintendo will go third party.
levian  +   649d ago
I've held onto my WiiU for X, Zelda, and Smash Bros alone. It's been sitting around unused for one full year, but it'll be worth it when those games come out.
KingDadXVI  +   648d ago
Yeah, mine has been collecting dust for about 10 months now. My kids and I basically played Lego City Undercover & Super Mario WiiU then went back to the 360 with some dabbling on the PS3. I will probably get the new Super Mario after Christmas and am looking forward to the new Zelda but for me Nintendo has fallen to third place with the Xbox being the preferred console and PS coming in second in my house.

Bayonetta 2? lol didnt the 1st one flop anyways? The only interesting game on that list is X and we dont know really anything about it.
frostypants  +   649d ago
Yeah, to paraphrase Triumph the Insult Comic Dog, my poop has more steam coming off of it than Bayonetta 2. It's just not that big of a franchise and the original was just a slightly-above-mediocre GoW knock-off.

If a flop is 2.5 million sold then plenty of games including the new Mario 3D Land is a Flop! SMH, if PS fans and MS Fans are asking for it obviously there is a demand. The franchise is big enough to warrant the outcry its getting. Sega and platinum confused a ton of people, since The game had a fan base and People enjoyed the game, to see it go from selling 1.3 and 1.2 million across 2 platforms to a console that isn't even performing well and be exclusive for that matter is just one of those WTF moments in the industry.

Still just like how PokeMon Y, made me shell out cash for 3Ds, This Bayo2 will make me shell out cash for A WiiU... And I'll enjoy the hell out of a Metroid game when it lands on the WiiU inevitably

Are you F'kn kidding me?
Seraphim  +   648d ago
I really enjoyed Bayonetta but it's sequel certainly isn't a game I'm drooling over.

I think Zelda is the only game on that list I'd be remotely interested in playing. I loved Twilight Princess on the Cube and Wind Waker was solid too. Oddly enough having been a kid when the original NES was released Zelda wasn't a game I ever really got into until Wind Waker.

In honesty I think this article is utter fail. Aside from personal preference and maybe finding 1 or 2 of those games remotely interesting I think most fans who don't have a Wii U don't really care either way about these games and would questionably even play them if they were on PS/XB....
JimmyDM90  +   649d ago
Nintendo needs to make a big budget 3d pokemon game for Wii U. It could be even better if it was an MMO RPG.
thehitman  +   648d ago
If they made a pokemon mmorpg I would be seriously tempted on a wii lol... I wish they would lose the pokemon license I think other companies would push Pokemon farther so much lost potential then just those handheld releases. Other than that only franchise in their library I would want to go third party is Super Smash Brothers nothing else is worth playing.
starfox079  +   648d ago
All 5 of these games will destroy Playstation and Microsoft's image for quality these 5 games will see more polish in graphics and especially gameplay then any ps4 or 1 game easy.......I also know that Nintendo will show projects at E3 that equal or surpass X in scope....I'm looking at Metroid and Zelda that Zelda has a 600 team they drafted in movie talent all sorts for this new Zelda.....
bayonetta  +   649d ago
Bayonetta 2 is my main reason to buy Wii U but ofc i don't mind to try great games like X , Mario Kart , Super Smash Bros and im looking for the new Zelda game (not the KT one )

DualWielding  +   649d ago
to be fair Bayonetta 2 and X would not exist if Nintendo was third party Nintendo is only publishing them (knowing they'll probably lose money) in order to help counteract the childsish image of the Wii U
Loadedklip  +   649d ago
Bayonetta ... yes
X ... no.

X is owned by Monolith ... Monolith is owned by ... take a guess ...
awesomeabe1998  +   649d ago
Nintendo owns rights to publish Bayo 2. The only way it would leave Wii U is if Nintendo sells the publishing rights.
Deadpoolio  +   649d ago
Uh Nintendo published Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge also...Remind me how that worked out again. Oh yeah that's right it got ported everywhere, meaning Nintendo publishing something doesn't mean anything....Just like When Microsoft published Mass Effect, and Ninja Gaiden 2
Metallox  +   648d ago
@Deadpoolio You don't seem to understand how this business works.
starfox079  +   648d ago
X is something both Nintendo/Moonlith created not Moonlith on their own they explained this ages ago that X is as good as it is due to Nintendo's input in other words it's a collaboration.
Tito08  +   647d ago
@Metallox- Actually Deadpoolio has a point, and that is not the first time that happened, remember Resident Evil 4 exclusivity for GC, and then ported to PS2? How about Resident Evil:Revelations and Castlevania 3DS ported to PS360? Actually it's you who doesn't seem to understand how business works, because nobody knows what's going on behind the doors, in the business world, especially in gaming, anything can happen. Did you thinking Nintendo snatching the rights for Monster Hunter because they're simply awesome? Nope, Nintendo did it because the series was a huge success on a Playstation machine, same applies to Resident Evil, the Xeno games, Fatal Frame, they let 3rd party games to be successful on other machines so.they could the out the check.
DA_SHREDDER  +   649d ago
yes please nintendo, i had such high hopes for your online but you just dont get it,, please just bring your virtual console available for xbl and psn, it would be like taking market share by 50 percent automatically.
kayoss  +   649d ago
I feel that Nintendo can make a killing off of Mario, Zelda, and Metroid games alone if they were released multiplatform.
wonderfulmonkeyman  +   649d ago
No they wouldn't. Sony and micro Fanboys consistently bash those games fort being too kiddy and the same thing every time.
If they haven't changed their minds about them for the wii u, there's no way a mere change of system would alter that mindset.
Loadedklip  +   649d ago
Metroid would definitely be helped if sold to the Sony and Microsoft fanbases which are more into that style of game. Nintendo fans unfortunately don't support Metroid as much as it deserves. Don't you guys dare click disagree ... just look at Metroid's critical acclaim and iconic status ... then look at it's sales ... in general ... Nintendo fans do not support Metroid games as proven by history.
KonsoruMasuta  +   649d ago
Going 3rd party doesn't secure success.

Look at Sega and their multiple times in a financial crisis.
wonderfulmonkeyman  +   649d ago
@ loaded
Count me out of that supposedly non supportive group.
I've owned every metroid so far, excluding return of Samus.
Also, i don't see sony or micro fans picking up the system and games, like nintendo fans picked up a second console and used it often during the wii generation when the wii didn't get third party games, so i sincerely doubt that they'd show better support for the series regardless of system.
If they really wanted the series so much that they would show better support, then they would save up money for the systems, since they are the cheapest on the market.

What are you talking about? the Wii sold 80 million units. Dont tell me that these are all Nintendo fans that bought the wii system. I consider myself a Sony Fan, but i bought the Wii for the mario, zelda, and metroid series (yes i know im only one person). But every gamer been a Nintendo fan since the days of the original Nintendo.
I can gaurantee you that a lot of the xbox and playstation owns a Nintendo 3ds so that they can play Nintendo's first part games.
christocolus  +   649d ago
Hmm.if Nintendo ever went multiplat i would definitly pick these up...Pikmin,smash bros,luigis mansion next gen and zelda
MsmackyM  +   649d ago
Or you could buy a WiiU. Nintendo is the only video game company in the business, Sony and Microsoft aren't they just happen to sell games as well. Once the Xbox division goes belly up and Sony's bad finances come back to haunt them, where will Nintendo gaming be? The idea of Nintendo going third party is ridiculous especially since Nintendo is the only company that can make a profit.
christocolus  +   649d ago
Dude its an article based on something that may probably even never happen and we are all allowed to post opinions.arent we?if ms or sony went "belly up" wouldnt you want some of their ips on your nintendo wiiu2?.
not really. as a nintendo fan if the 2 companies went belly up it would bring stable 3rd party support for nintendo's home consoles, but beyond that sony& microsoft can keep there ip's, but i would wan't nintendo to raid microsoft for the rareware ip's.
2muchw1nn1ng  +   648d ago
Why buy a Wii U when it's almost guaranteed at this point to receive little support?
wonderfulmonkeyman  +   649d ago
I'm sorry, but i don't feel that a list like this should even be drawn up unless we're going to be doing similar lists for both Sony and Microsoft games as well.
For the sake of a fully rounded discussion.

For instance, Infamous second sons. I'd play that on my wii u till the internal motor that makes the disk spin burned out.XD its one of the games I'll be getting the ps4 for.

Activemessiah  +   649d ago
The only way to solve this is to buy a PS4 and a Wii U as a companion.. I don't understand buying a PS4 and Xb1 because they share 90% of games... might as well buy another console with more exclusives.
FantasyStar  +   648d ago
If there are games like .....Titanfall then maybe not...it really depends on how far Microsoft will push Kinect and their cloud-computing concept. Far enough and it would be impossible to do porting. The same way high profile PS3 games could never be done for 360. Whereas it's not doubted 360 high profile games could be done for PS3.
Hicken  +   648d ago
So that you get the message.

... and you're full of yourself, and more than just a little short-sighted.

I know far more than the average gamer. My willingness to invest in multiple consoles or not does not determine whether or not I'm hardcore. My dedication to gaming- both as a hobby and as an industry- goes beyond that of an avid gamer.

But I'm not stupid or blind. I don't support companies that don't promote what I believe is good for the industry. I don't buy games or consoles that don't appeal to me or show that they're worth their asking prices. I don't just blanket "invest." I'm mindful of what my purchases tell the companies who wind up with my money. I'm cognizant of what many such purchases could do, how they could shape the industry.

I play many genres, and have done so on many platforms. I've been at it for more than 20 years. Gaming has been an integral part of my life for many personal reasons, and is one of the bonding points for me and my friends, as well as many family members, too. I've got far more invested into gaming than "avid" covers.

And for you to try and say the difference is based solely on how many consoles a person decides to buy- while taking nothing else into consideration- is about as pretentious as it gets.

thehobbyist  +   649d ago
Well let's take a look at the cost of owning all consoles that are currently available(BTW, these are the cheaper options, not the optimal):
Wii: $150
Wii U: $300
Xbox 360: $170
Xbox One: $500
PS3: $300
PS4: $400
Nintendo DS: $120
Nintendo 3DS: $170
PS VITA: $200
PSP: $100
TOTAL: $2,410

That's without games or Xbox Live Gold/PS+ subsriptions. Few can or want to spend that kind of money.
Sly-Lupin  +   649d ago
If you're looking at cheapest options, knock off $370 for the PSP, NDS and Wii. Because, you know, backwards compatibility is a THING that MATTERS, no matter how much Sony and MS (and their idiot fanboys) insist it's not.
_QQ_  +   649d ago
Didn't say you had to own all systems, also i'm sure you can understand a man aquires things for gaming over a period of 50 years.

FantasyStar  +   648d ago
$2410 spread out over 7 years isn't much...10k spread out over 3 years isn't a lot.
Hicken  +   648d ago
The simple reason is because "avid gamers" don't automatically buy all consoles.

Honestly, I question someone who would buy every console without reservation over a fanboy, because at least a fanboy is considering the very real- and in some cases, very likely- possibility that one or more companies has done something that makes their product not worth purchasing. I'm no fan of Microsoft, so I'm not keen on giving them my money; I like Nintendo, but their handhelds tend to have games that appeal to me far more than their consoles do, at least recently.

So, in my case, I'd own just a PlayStation, but still be somewhat upset that, for example, Bayonetta 2 will ONLY be on the Wii U. Of course, I'm happy the game is being made at all, but because Nintendo's home consoles haven't done a lot to earn my purchases the past few generations, I need to see more than Bayonetta and X.

So I lament that Bayonetta will likely languish sales-wise, because the majority of those who bought the franchise's first entry are probably not interested in the Wii U, nor does the Wii U appeal very much to the type of crowd that would be interested in the game, but are new to the series.

I also complain because I have neither the time nor the money to play every game I want. If I didn't have bills and debt and... well, the things that come with not being a kid, maybe I could still do it on my current income/time. But probably not, even then. So I complain because I'm limited to one console(barring the ones I've already bought, naturally) and wish games I'm really interested in on other consoles could be on that one console I own.

Sometimes, it's the publisher I complain about.

Lots of reasons an "avid gamer" with only one system can complain about not getting games.
FantasyStar  +   648d ago
I guess in your case, you can say you're an avid gamer. You're here, participating in the culture and knowing a bit more than the average gamer.

But if we're separating the avid-gamers from the hardcore-gamers, then you definitely fall in the avid-gamer category seeing as how you're not as willing as the next person who is willing to invest in more than one console. Which is fine.

Correction: Nintendo is so smart for actually wanting Bayonetta 2. They were the only ones who wanted to take it. Now all they have to do is sit back and watch the money come in.

...about Mario Kart i would say that it has been surpassed a long time ago by the far superior (in gameplay terms) Crash Team Racing for psx (the original) ..CTR is far more competitive and addictive than any Mario Kart until now ..i know it is aclone but even Mari Kart copied some things from CTR in recent games

Don't like Bayonetta and Smash at all so thats two less for me, and considering how Nintendo have disappointed me with the last few Zelda games (except the new 3ds one which is amazing) I'm not holding out hope, especially since all we ever saw was that non playable "demo" that one time.

Mario Kart is fine but X has my interest (even though we barely know anything about it).

Let's be real....Bayonetta tanked. If people were actually interested in it, it would still be multiplatform. It's inclusion on this list is laughable.

Mario Kart is a Nintendo game and "fans" of MS and Sony could care less about kiddie Kart 8.

Smash Bros... I guess people like that. I'm not one of them.

The Zelda game doesn't exist. It's a tech demo. If that exists then Kara, Agni's, and that flaming armored guy from Unreal Engine 4 are all games. Until Zelda HD is announced, there is no Zelda HD. When Zelda HD is announce along with a new Metroid, I won't have to wish for a WiiU because those are the game that will sway me.

X looks decent enough but I'm not interested.

There's currently nothing on the WiiU that makes me want N to go 3rd party. I'd rather have them create a platform with up to date tech instead of what they've been doing for 2 generations, so we all won't have to wish they were 3rd party.
ok, i guess if you don't follow nintendo news closely you wouldn't know this, but zelda for the wii u DOES exist. it was confirmed along time ago. it didn't exist when the tech demo was shown off at e3 2011, but nintendo said many times that they developed wind waker along side the new zelda for the wii u. they used windwaker to practice , and there applying everything they learned for the development of the new zelda game for the wii u.

So what's it called and when was the official announcement? What style is it? cell shaded or like the tech demo? Without an official announcement, there is no game.

that would be about 150 dollars to play a game

JackieCruise69  +   648d ago
Exactly. Everyone's begging for a Bayonetta 2 port to the 4 and One. They can call it crap, but a lot of people seem to secretly want it enough to harrass the devs over it.

I've seen PLENTY of people crying about X not coming to their systems,

Mario, probably not so much, but I know tons of sony and micro fanboys that want Zelda or Pokemon.

Oh well, they can wish.

Except for X I have no interest in any of those games. Never understood the love people have for Bayonetta. I could not enjoy it because I couldn't get over the cynical pandering to 13 year old boys that was the whole game. I just sat there trying to play all the while the game bombarded with me such bullshit that just made me think...jesus developers have some odd freaking outlook on gamers and teens.

Everyone likes to complain about Nintendo milking Mario and not making new IPs, but yet want them to go third party so they can play the same Mario games on their Xbox One's and PS4's.
