Reggie Fils-Aime said Nintendo is working with third parties like Ubisoft, Warner Bros and a number of Japanese developers to build more Wii U titles.
Does anyone else think that MS/Sony consoles are a little more 'dry'? Or is it just me? This whole year has been a bit lackluster. 2015 looks like a much better year.
They have a number of third party games that look promising like Evolve and Destiny. Wii U will be bringing less games but ones that are just as significant and in Smash Bros.' case, possibly even more so. All three consoles have some promising content coming this year. I wish people would stop trying to say who has the best or worse since that's completely subjective.
I've been gaming on Xbox One mostly for the last 3 months and I have tons to play it's more of a problem not having time to play some games because I playing these other games so much, I need to finish Ryse Legendary and Tomb Raider but my party always needs me in Titanfall, I need to play Forza more also, and I need to finish the last boss in Guacamelee, when Halo Collection drops I might have to quit normal life lol.
Can't believe 4 peiple disagreed with you smh.
Well it is those consoles first year, so it's to be expected.
Why single out Nintendo is my point. WiiU's been out much longer, so how is it any more barren?
the wiiU is dry yet nintendo servers are clogging up with mario kart 8 online . ah . . lol ps4 . so many games, yet still awaiting greatness :(: wiiU already so sssiiiickkkkk!
no, it's not just you... i know i'll get disagrees but PS4 really hasn't brought anything notable with the exception of Infamous: Second Son Xbone's even worse... they brought out Titanfall which i rather played on PC anyways they'll get the games eventually... every console has a waiting period.
They have an valid excuse being a launch year.
Well i would like to think that since the Wii U is going on it's second year of being available while the PS4 & Xbox One have only been out for seven and a half months.
I just don't get how the one year headstart is so pertinent to every thing you guys say. Microsoft's one year head start MURDERED them. All major home video game consoles are out now. Nintendo's headstart was basically terrible. Why bring it up every time unless that's the only thing you guys will have to hold on to once Nintendo kicks the fricking shit out of Sony and Microsoft AGAIN! Yup that's right. The least expensive and least powerful home video game console ALWAYS WINS! Barring that fact this generation Nintendo has released some of the best video game software not only of this generation but of the company's whole lifespan! If you look at let's just say oh Pikmin 3. It look's amazing, the control's are excellent and it's just alot of fun to play. That game gives me that warm Shigeru Miyamoto is a genius feeling every time I fire it up! I smile everytime I play it! Now add those same parimeters to every piece of video game software Nintendo has released this generation for the Wii U! Scary huh? They've ALL been excellent! No one in this industry in my opinion can touch the quality of video game software Nintendo has released this generation for the Wii U. In five years from now when Nintendo wins this generation I can just guess what your mantra wii be,"Well, they had a year head start!"
Wii U to me are actually had a much more lively scene...with me only with The Wind Waker HD to play with! I got like 10 games on PS4 yet I never able to bring myself to play it for long. If it wasn't for Infamous and BF4 (Which it never failed to make me rage) I wouldn't touch my PS4 going back to PS2 and play some GT3 and Auto Modellista,racing games are what I'm craving for on PS4. It purely just on my end though,maybe the games there just wasn't quite hit my sweet spot yet. (But that will soon end when TLOU:RE arrived!) Well I just got started with Wii U and now find myself overwhelmed with all of its first party and exclusives,I just want to play all of them! (Mario Kart 8 you're first on the list) Some Third party love is always nice on Wii U though...Ubisoft,I'm still waiting for Watch Dogs on Wii U...
Yeah, still awaiting greatness here as well. I'm also waiting for the superior version of WatchDogs.
Really just a matter of opinion i guess. I personally havent loved the recent Wii U mario games, but i am really anticipating Smash bros. (as is really every nintendo fan). I know every company really has three major games in 2014. Nintendo has mk8, Hyrule warriors, and smash bros., sony has lbp3, driveclub and tlou remasered, and microsoft has halo mcc, forza horizon 2 and sunset overdrive. problem is, nintendo gives the illusion of few games with less aaa third party support
Someone get the lube, my Wii U is dry!
It's year two for Wii u and we still have a doubt if any games are coming because they are not unless it's first party.
What about Bayonetta, Devil's Third and Sonic Boom? We should expect to see more third party partnership games as time goes on.
@Randomass That requires gamers to think outside the box. Which hardly any do in this day and age.
and as the Wii U's user base grows!
Or a million indie games. The fact is in five years some of those independent developers are going to be major players and will have learned video game software development the "Nintendo way". By then Sony will be bought out by Apple. Should be very interesting!
Its fascinating to see how they ALL underestimated the jump to higher specs. Nintendo, ok, they were used to the level of PS2-style games on the Wii, but the others ? It was obvious since 2011 were this industry was heading technically, I really wonder who forgot to mention that higher res graphics for examply take twice to four times as much manpower/devtime than the old sub-720p stuff. Why were the boys over at Guerilla Games done with Killzone for launch, but almost no one else ? Sony should have had a new GoW ready at least, Microsoft should have had a new Halo or Gears. Nintendos rehash of New Super Mario Bros Wii was embarassing enough. Sometimes I just dont understand these companies, when they behave like noobs. Those big boys just all released their third or fourth or eigth console !!! At that pace, You will be happy if there are two iterations of the famous franchises this lifecycle per console, which means the next 7 years !!! Or, other option, those games wont be as great as they could be.
Why is it that Nintendo has never made HD games until the wiiu they get no slack. But Sony and Microsoft have been doing HD for just about 10 years they get a pass?
they too got HD late anyways, lol.
I think PC has technically been doing HD long before any of the consoles have, which is fine. Nintendo was the latest to the party, but hopefully they will better themselves and be more prepared with the next console.
My Wii U has a backlog to see me through the drought, but I also have the PS4 & X1 to help.. Happy gaming!!! Wii U>PS4>X1
