In no way whatsoever does this game look like a PS4 killer.

Whoever wrote this is either joking or being delusional.
stuna1  +   212d ago
The sad thing is that the ones disagreeing truly believe this can happen, which makes this more than a difference of opinion! To them this fits into to their realm of possibility however delusional and bizarre it may be.

You only have to read my comment below to see I wasn't trying to slag the game or the WII U, to see fact facts have no bearings on a truly delusional mind.
UltimateMaster  +   212d ago | Well said
"killer" or "destroy" is a harsh words.
"Appealing" to the PS4 and Xbox One gamers, for sure.

This game would make those gamers to buy the console to play that game.
You just need much more of them.

Agreed. It looks really good. And it makes me want a Wii U one day. But it doesn't make me want my PS4 any less. This game will do more to help the Wii U than it will to hurt PS4.

Bubble for you. Exactly my thoughts. The game looks cool as hell.

They show a video of shooting a gorilla for 5 minutes and people like the author of the article go full retard. Most of the people were actually disappointed with the boring battle and cluttered interface with all the damage numbers. The were no solid details about gameplay, story,world design and characters. There wasn't even a release quarter let alone a release date and we get this kind of stupid article. Xeno games have never been killer apps or system sellers.They are excellent games but only niche titles (have been playing Xeno games since 1998). Just check the sales and significance of all the past Xeno games and you will know the future of this game.

No, but we should reign in Nintendo-doom article that don't make sense, were poorly written or seemed like examples of bad journalism, just like with any article.

If I get you right, you think I'm saying that I want this pro-Nintendo bullcrap gone, and then you're replying that we should remove all the anti-Nintendo bullcrap first. Well, that's kind of a pathetic fanboyish outlook. What I'm saying is simply that we should remove the bullcrap, regardless of theme.

I don't think it's gonna kill anything, but I'm buying a Wii U for this game alone. So at the very least it's enough to convince some people to buy.
GordonKnight  +   210d ago
This game will only make the hardcore RPG fans buy a Wii U. That's only if they haven't already bought one.

looks like Nintendo has stepped back into RPGs again and at full speed.

IMO: It's sad that FPS shooter fans are the majority in the gaming community. This is why PS4 is doing so good, It's got the most power and solid online support.

I've been defending the Wii U since before it came out, and even I know that one game can't destroy two consoles. We're talking about an excelled version of Xenoblade. Did Xenoblade destroy the PS3 and 360?
OldDude  +   211d ago
Not that I am saying Xeno destroyed the PS3 and 360, but you do realize that GameStop had sole rights to XenoBlade in the US and it was a very limited game right? Its sales would have been much higher if a respectable publisher had handled it.

You cant generalize an entire fanbase on one loony stereotype. There is an incredibly negligible small percentage of even the most devoted nintendo fanboys out there who believe this game can kill the competitions system, theyre the idiots. I interact with wii u owners all the time, most are rationally minded, intelligent and critical of nintendo.
Metallox  +   211d ago
As a Nintendo fan, I agree on everything you say. However, for me it's a little offensive that you call us "weird" people. We just play games, like you. Also, playing video games it's just for entertainment, to WASTE YOUR TIME, I wouldn't call that an important factor to call us weird people.

@Justindark "Wii U is going to have the definitive version of all your favorite games, the definitive version of w.e. Call Of Duty comes out, the definitive version of Assassin's Creed 3, the definitive version of Battlefield 3, the definitive version of Grand Theft Auto V,the Nintendo system will have the best version of your favorite games." How are any Sony fanboy going to beat such a ridiculous statement from that very dumb and idiotic Nintendo fanboy known as DrTre81, and he denied saying that when the proof is on the video.

I've encounter a couple of Nintendo fanboys, and these are bigger hypocrites and ignorants than both Sony and Microsoft fanboys combined, I mean, you guys complain about 3rd party games not coming to Wii U when you fools won't buy them anyways, asking for the same set of games since 1985, mostly Marios and Zeldas and brag about how these two are better than the entire game lineup on PS/XB, and how Nintendo "saved" the industry, and how the industry will "die" with Nintendo, and for every of Nintendo woes, you have to mention Sony or MS to win your sorry argument, and how you fools were attacking IGN PS team in the youtube comments for having a PS only conversation when you should have attacked the Nintendo team instead, and even one of them went as far as to say the stereo chip for NES was made by Miyamoto when in reality it was made by Ken Kutaragy when he worked at Sony in the early 90s, so tell me Justin, where does Sony/MS fanboys defeat Nintendo fanboys in the damage control department? Btw, by looking at your past comments, you sound like one of these fool, you're the only set of fanboys Michael Pachter enjoys making fun of.

This game could easily be in the competition for game of the year. It depends on what unannounced games end up coming out this year. But X is easily one of the best games coming out this year. Can't wait for it's release!

I didn't say it was GOTY...I said it easily has potential. Based on who is making I can bet it will be just as good as it looks in the trailers if not better. Many other games come out this year though so I'm sure it will have a tough competition. Since when did being in the competition automatically mean I am crowning it?

stuna1  +   212d ago
Ha ha ha ha hah (Catches breath)! Seriously I'm not going to straight up talk about "X", I'm sure it going to be a nice addition to the WII U stable but come why even make subjective statements like this!? This truthfully is only going to open the door for negative responses.

Truthfully I been waiting for the inevitable comparisons to come up! Sure everything in the opening paragraph could be subjectively true, but the statement could be only apllied to last gen consoles! This generation consoles are already exhibiting characteristics and attributes above what the WII U are capable of! Not trying to be funny about it......but the WII U will and does have technological gaps that will always prevent it from surpassing what the other two are capable of, even with the WII U pad.

As far as X is concerned, when I first saw it 2years ago it definitely showed a lot of promise, but going off of what I saw 2days ago, it definitely looked like it took a hit graphically! Also the playstyle looks different from what I think a lot of people were expecting, different is not saying bad by any means.

I noticed the same is happening with Bayonetta! To me it noway as impressive as it first looked when revealed! Perhaps it is because I have grown accustomed to what the Next Generation has already offered, or can offer, who knows!?

It this point a gap is there, graphical direction are almost totally different! Example would be PS4/Xbox1 graphics are more realistically based as opposed to the WII U more cartoonish looks. Don't believe me see for yourself, make the comparisons on all consoles out there, and you tell me there isn't a major difference in art direction.

It's not like Dead Rising 3 was crap. It was pretty fun. So was Killer Instinct. Forza was decent (if you like the sim racer genre ->I don't -> and you can get over the predatory microtransactions and reduced feature set from the last gen Forza).

And games frankly don't get much worse or more disappointing than lame misguided tedious garbage like Killzone: Shadow Fall(what a padded, irritating, overscripted set-piece mess) and Knack.

The best thing on PS4 right now is the multiplatform* games that are on everything else , and the budget DL retro-arcade title Resogun. (Which is a neat derivative of Defender.)

*(I preordered the new Strider, Castlevania Lords of Shadow 2, Thief, RE4: HD Ultimate Edition, Lego Marvel Universe, Assassin's Creed 4, Battlefield 4, Call of Duty: Ghosts, and Titanfall all for PC, instead of a console, because I could.)

Don't get me wrong, Xbone is a ridiculous $500 and has that stupid camera, so I skipped it. I bought a PS4 mainly for Destiny in September but hoping that Infamous 2nd Son and MGS Ground Zeroes would be good when they come out next month. And I am still thinking of getting Diablo III for the PS4 now that the auction house is gone and the controller scheme has been worked out and the add on is out.

At present that PS4 I bought is a damned game desert if you own a PC to get multiplatform games on. It is a long way from having any library bragging rights.

What about the Free2Plays? Well...Warframe, Planetside 2, DC Online, Blacklight Retribution are all on PC and have been for a long time.

I'm supposed to be excited by PS+ ? Well, Resogun was really nice.

Giving me Don't Starve, Outlast, Contrast, (all on Steam) and upgraded versions of Flow and Flower from the Crossbuy on my old PS3 versions was a bit less impressive.

PS+ is great for PS3 and okay for Vita but for PS4 it's...well...'meh' ; makes me sound ungrateful for free stuff to "rent" or "subscribe to" but it is not blowing me away at this time. All but one of the freebies have been stuff I got cheap on Steam over the winter sale.

When the free starter version of Drive club comes out it should help things a lot.

A lot of it is because the three to six month launch window for a console is usually a lot of remastered ports and nonsense, but right now the PS4 library is honestly not very exciting at all. At least March seems likely to throw me a couple of bones.

Well Titanfall won't be because it's also on 360 and PC. Infamous games are good but not system sellers. X will be great I'm sure but only Mario Kart, GTA, and COD have the kind of following to be big system sellers. At least until the next big thing.

Aside from that the video is just a final fantasy style party killing random mobs. Exactly how it goes in Xenoblade Chronicles. It's an rpg not an mmo. I think there is a lot of confusion because most never played XC.

It actually is. WiiU came out after Nintendo's 7th gen console. That means the WiiU is 8th gen, just like the PS4 and Xbox One. There is no such thing as a mid gen console. We are eight console generations away from the release of the first consoles ever. That makes the WiiU, PS4, and XboxOne all 8th gen consoles.

Don't be so ignorant. 3ds was down and out, so they reduced the price drastically in order to sell. The wii u has been reduced in cost and it's still selling poorly. PS4/X1 are dominating sales at a high price, why would it die quickly, before even a price drop?

As for games, compare the first 4 months of the wii u games, nothing.

Now Stfu, useless mong.

compare games??? r u damn well joking?? what games? please let me know what 'amazing games' ps4 and one have right now, 'in the first 4 months'. The Xbox one is not 'dominating in sales', its got 3.4mil in 4 months...the wii u did better....
