Project Cars Poll Shows 50% of People Voting are Getting the Wii U Version

Playeressence - Slightly Mad Studios has released a poll asking fans which platform they are getting Project Cars on. And somewhat surprisingly, The Wii U has over 54% of the total vote. I think Slightly Mad studios is a shining example of how to treat Wii U fans and the console. Don’t downplay or half-a$$ it. Go all out as well and tell fans you want to deliver the best experience possible. This is why I love independent studios, they are not so influenced by corporate money of the big three. You can vote on the poll here. Project Cars is set for releases this fall on Wii U, PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Source: Project Cars.

Multiple vote from the same user? A small number of votes? Anyway, if those numbers are legit, we just can get one conclusion: Nintendo fans are more active while surfing on the Internet, they like to explore the Web. Saying something else is pointless, because the poll doesn't show the number of votes, and we can't really know if there weren't multiple votes from the same user.

QThornton1268d ago

I agree with you. I just looked at the poll and it doesn't show any numbers, just percentages of all the people who have voted. From this poll and some comments, it could be a system seller or will make current Wii U owners turn back to their console for even just one more game.

rodiabloalmeida1268d ago

Has anybody here on N4G realised that this poll just reflects the fact that the Wii U has no focking AAA games to play, and pCars might be the first in quite sometime, so that would be the reason showing why so many wii U users are voting and commenting the referenced poll? LOL And I'll probably get a ton of disagrees from Nintendo fanboys for this post.

fr0sty1268d ago

It has AAA games, but not many from third parties.

rodiabloalmeida1268d ago (Edited 1268d ago )

@fr0sty

Mario, Zelda and <insert anything usualy Nintendo here> does not count. I don't. Its like counting in Gran Turismo for a Sony console or a Halo game for a microsoft console.

TekoIie1268d ago (Edited 1268d ago )

@rodiabloalmeida

Amazing logic:

"WiiU/Xbone/PS4 has no AAA games because I refuse to accept the existence of the ones that are there"

rodiabloalmeida1268d ago (Edited 1268d ago )

@the all above that disagree

Ok, I'm gonna put an last effort to getting my message delivered 'cos you disagreers people must not be that dumb to not understand such a simple logic.

First of all, every system has it's obvious game titles released by first parties, that always are released but that does not costitute a library that one can call an AAA titles library, becouse it have only the obvious and such fact can't be used to claim the system a succesfull one in the market. Basically, Nintendo has Mario, Sony has GT and Microsoft has Halo (just to ilustrate).

Second: no one ever mentioned PS4 or Xbox One, cos there wasn't enough time yet to build a library so you could call that an AAA library or a successful system. It needs more time, so it's pointless.

And finally, and where my simple logic resides and you still fail to see, is that Wii U has been around for enough time now to have a library that you could say "Hey, that system has a solid library after a reasonable amount of time after its realese, so you can call that a successfull system now, many AAA titles", but still it doesn't!

No one buys a system just to play a few games (two, tree, maybe four first party obvious titles that you know the system will have sometimes even before it's launch!). Again, to ilustrate: I have a PS3 and 45 games, I have a PS2 and 93 games, I have a Nintendo DS and around a hundred games, and I have a PC and almost 500 games.

Now that said: How many AAA games (discarding the uber obvious titles) do the Wii U have since it's launch so you can say "Hey, I'm gonna buy that system as it has a lot of games to play since it was realesed to the market"?

Wich brings us back to beginning that shows why there are so many Wii U owners voting and commenting so eagerly on this damn poll saying they're gonna get the game for their systems becouse, basicaly, THEY HAVE ALMOST NO TRIPLE A GAMES TO PLAY EXCEPT THE OBVIOUS ONES! So pCars it's gonna be the first in quite sometime. Did you get it now?

And now I'm gonna quit from this specific news comment section 'cos I think lack of good sense may be contagious. Good discussion to you all.

Neonridr1268d ago

@rodiabloalmeida so basically if a game is from a first party studio then it doesn't count as being a AAA game?

So Uncharted, TLOU, God of War, Gran Turismo, Infamous, etc don't count as AAA games because these are "usual" Sony games?

Just like Halo, Gears of War, Forza, Dead Rising, etc don't count for Microsoft?

I think a bunch of us are failing to see your logic. Just because they are regular games that appear on the consoles doesn't mean that they suddenly don't count as a AAA game.

"The Wii U has no AAA games except for the obvious ones". Well it's the obvious ones that make people purchase the consoles.

Nobody says they are going to buy a console because there might be a hidden AAA new IP that they don't know about that will make them happy with their purchase. They buy it because the games they love to play will show up on the console sooner or later.

@radiabloalmeida

"First of all, every system has it's obvious game titles released by first parties, that always are released but that does not costitute a library that one can call an AAA titles library"

Your logic is nonsensical. Do people like Halo, GT and Mario? Yes? Well then that means they matter to the consoles library.

"becouse it have only the obvious and such fact can't be used to claim the system a succesfull one in the market."

... You're going to have to better explain this "fact" for me to understand it because that sentence is 4th grader stuff.

"Second: no one ever mentioned PS4 or Xbox One, cos there wasn't enough time yet to build a library so you could call that an AAA library or a successful system. It needs more time, so it's pointless."

Actually you did mention them. Look at your original post where you said the following:

"Its like counting in Gran Turismo for a Sony console or a Halo game for a microsoft console."

You're comment referred to any console made by Sony/MS which also covers Xbone and PS4.

"And finally, and where my simple logic resides and you still fail to see, is that Wii U has been around for enough time now to have a library that you could say "Hey, that system has a solid library after a reasonable amount of time after its realese, so you can call that a successfull system now, many AAA titles", but still it doesn't!"

Except it does have AAA games but you're refusing to acknowledge the existence of its exclusives (W101, Mario 3D World and Pikmin for example).

The rest of your comment is full of assumptions and would result in me repeating what I already said so I'll leave it.

Some I guessing you come to this conclusion with every poll?

zeuanimals1268d ago

I sort of do, or atleast I've never taken an internet poll seriously.

wonderfulmonkeyman1268d ago

I just did a vote on it, and unless someone is going out of their way to change IP addresses and re-vote a ton of times or something else equally time-wasting, you can only vote once on the poll.
So that's not likely.

Besides, can't we just be happy about this?
I mean for Heaven's sake, haters keep bitching and whining that Nintendo fans don't deserve multiplats because they "don't show support", and now that there's some likely evidence of support, suddenly it's something to doubt and downplay?
Christ, people, try being positive for a change! Even if the poll is a small number, it's still a positive for the Wii U and says something good about the people who voted on the Wii U version.
It shows some support.
This isn't a bad thing, so lets try to stop treating it like something that needs to be downplayed, shall we?

N4g_null1268d ago

Some people believe you can only succeed if other fail. So the wiiu must fail or risk cutting into some ones success.

So now whenever there is PS4 poll, its Legit. but when its on Wii U, it should be checked correctly?WTF it is true but make sure that you are checking if PS4 polls are legit #Fanboylogic

Metallox1268d ago

I didn't say the poll wasn't legit. I actually would say the same thing about the PS4, because the poll doesn't show number of votes or something more useful. It's pointless in many ways.

Gamer19821268d ago

of course there getting the wiiu version i mean what other car racing game can they get on the wiiu?? (before you say it mario kart is not a car racer) You get Forza on Xbox and GT/Driveclub on PS not to mention the 3rd party racers like burnout/nfs/grid/f1 etc.. none are available on WiiU..

Nevers0ft1268d ago

You overlooked Need For Speed Most Wanted on the Wii U, it's pretty much the definitive version. But you have a point, that's the only car racing game available on the console that I can think of.

gpturbo811268d ago

whatever you gotta tell yourself to sleep at night, bud.

randomass1711268d ago

@Metallox

Strange how when a lot of people say they're getting a Wii U version of a game on a website, the first thing you do is cry out about a voting conspiracy. Anyway, hopefully the game does well across all platforms. Probably getting the PS3 version myself since I don't have a Wii U right now. That said I'd like for it to well, that would lead to another game on Wii U by that developer hopefully.

If and it's a big IF this games looks any where near the screenshots and videos they've been showing. Count me in.

AKR1268d ago

If it is legit; then by all means, so be it.

Records have shown that third-party games that weren't gimped, actually did close numbers on the system compared to the other platforms. Examples like Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed and Rayman Legends, come to mind.

Hopefully pCars Wii U will continue that trend. SMS seems pretty keen to actually make the Wii U version the BEST they can. It would be a shame if it goes ignored.

zeuanimals1268d ago

The problem with this is that Rayman Legends and Sonic RT didn't sell well overall in the first place. Sucks because they're great games, some of the best in their genres too.

The reason they didn't sell well on the PS3 and 360 was because they came out at very bad times and had very little advertising. A bunch of big games were coming out in November 2012 and most people didn't even know what Sonic Racing Transformed was or that it was even coming out. Rayman Legends came out in September of last year, freaking GTA V came out in September, you can't release a game with little advertising against a game like GTA V and expect it to do well.

The reason Sonic RT did "okay" on the Wii U was because it was a launch game, and launch games tend to do very well because there tends to very little else to get making them stick out much more instead of blending in the background like Sonic RT did on the PS3/360, but it still did poorly on the Wii U.

The reason why Rayman Legends did "okay" on the Wii U was because the Wii U was still starved for games, even though W101 and Pikmin 3 came out, those were the first 2 big games to come out for the Wii U since launch (6 month dry spell) and people wanted more than 2 games. GTA V also didn't come out on the Wii U, that game would've taken a ton of steam away from Rayman Legends for Wii U owners, but it still did poorly.

I hope this game really does do well on the Wii U. It could be a step in getting 3rd parties back on board, Nintendo just needs to improve their 3rd party relations first.

mayedh011268d ago

I agree, but I think a big reason some games don't sell is us Nintendo fans just like different games than ps and xbox fans. Yea, there's going to be overlapping in some areas, but for the most part we have our type of games like, gameplay focused, over the top, retro, j/rpgs, party, Japanese, exclusives, and fighting games. Different strokes.

lilbroRx1268d ago

Been saying this since the beginning, and its true even for the Wii.

Games that were actually worth buying, people bought on Nintendo console.

The entire "Nintendo fans only buy Nintendo products" claim is and always has been a lie to pass off third party failures on the console onto Nintendo and the customer.

People who buy Nintendo products simply have high quality standards.

Locknuts1268d ago

No Forza or GT. Makes sense that they would want this game. Nintendo has never pursued the 'realistic racing sim'.

pcz1268d ago (Edited 1268d ago )

exactly

sony fans have gt

xbox fans have forza

nintendo fans up to now have had no driving simulator, so of course a large number of them will be interested in this game, while sony/micro fans will most likely stick to their own already established driving simulator franchises

N4g_null1268d ago

Nintendo fans have had plenty of driving sims. We played Gt and forza and dirt on the pc and even the sega rally games. What you fail to see is Nintendo fans are in their 50s and 40s now and just getting started at like 5 and up. Their is a large range of gamers here. They could and may own multiple systems because they are older also. It's like saying dvd watchers don't watch high end graphics in there movies because it can't handle hdtv or udtv. You are falling for bad info if you think otherwise.

N4g_null1268d ago

So basically the fanboys of those exclusive games should refuse to buy any other racing game they already have an established brand. So mad games is wasting their time making a game for the ps4 and xbone.

pcz1268d ago (Edited 1268d ago )

no, i think you are misunderstanding.

we all know GT and forza are very highly regarded games. they define the genre on their respective consoles. its my opinion that sony/micr fans are as likely to buy project cars as much as nintendo fnas would buy sonic racing. they already have a game that serves them completely adequately, so project cars wont be in so high demand for them. the same way sonic racing wont be as appealing to nintendo fans because mario kart does it better.

nintendo fans who have absolutely nothing, simulation wise, so the vast majority of wiiu owners would be interested in a game like that to fill that hole in their collection.

and really, i dont think the number of people who are buying the game for wiiu, are owners of other consoles... since they would be buying an inferior version for the wiiu. and that is not a dig, its just plain fact.
