So is the Nintendo Wii-U made for children or kids? CraigheadPro and Brandon Bullock talk on Nintendo fanboy’s that seem to be supporting #OperationPlatinum and continually say that the Wii-U is made for adults. Let’s figure this mess out!
The WiiU is made for gamers. Case closed.
Those 3 disagrees are legit. A gaming console is in no way made for gamers. /s
I stopped playing Rise of the Triad when I was 6 yrs old lulz
No, just a lot of gaming journalists are kids.
Strange part is that Nintendo is one of the few companies left that make quality and unrushed games left.
Wow, this video has to be a joke, right? The average age of a wiiu owner is probably older than the xbo and ps4. Plus look at the reviews of wii u games and you'll see that the average score is higher than that of the other consoles. Good games are good games no matter your age. What a joke.
Yes it is for the little girls, that's why mature games don't sell on Wii U, that's why major AAA 3rd partie games sell like shit on Wii U.
Assassin's Creed IV on Xbox 360: DLC, good performance, access to a huge online community, a more popular platform. Assassin's Creed IV on Wii U: No DLC, terrible frame rate, dead community, a platform hurt by Nintendo's terrible third party relationships. There's no reason to buy third party AAA games on Wii U. That's why the games don't sell, it's not really 100% fault of either Nintendo or the Wii U itself.
Game devs have been quoted saying that the Wii U CPU is "trash", but it's all good like the new 3DS they will fix that problem.
Have Nintendo ever done console revisions like that?
Oh and where is this terrible frame rate? I've had the game for a year and have had no problems with the frame rate. The community is not dead, I spend a couple of hours a day on the multiplayer and have no trouble getting in to different games.
I bet this guy is totally mature. After all he cares about what other people think of him and he makes sure he plays games rated M that have mature content (code for sexual content and swearing) so that everyone knows he is an adult. He never eats at McDonald's because that is marketed toward children nor does he like anything from Disney or it's affiliates because again....Disney goes after the family/children market. Actually the only TV he can watch is HBO and Showtime because everything else is again not mature enough for him. Mean while I will have fun playing my Wii U with and without my children and when he wants to ask my why a grown man would be playing Nintendo I'll just laugh at him cause that has to be one of the stupidest questions I've ever heard.
Yep. Like I've said a few times on here. If you're worried about how "mature" a game makes you look I can put your mind at ease... You're immature (or at best, insecure) :)
Of course its not for kids. It's for 20/30 somethings trying to recapture the spirit of their youth. Children don't give a damn about Mario or Zelda they're all playing GTA, CoD and Minecraft.
Made it almost half way through and that was pushing it. This is complete garbage. This guy saying he would laugh at someone if they were 25 and playing a wii u. It's official folks if Nintendo leaves gaming then gaming is dead. That's the cold hard reality whether the dude in the video understands that or not. It will all be games without creativity, in the form of dlc and micro transactions. Just to make sure they got every penny
We would have Playstation, Xbox and PC to fill the void. How would gaming be dead ?
To be fair Nintendo is the only one that offers completely different games from Sony. Xbox and PC share PS4 multiplats so Nintendo compliments them better than the others do.
How could Playstation exist if it wasn't for Nintendo? How could Xbox exist if it wasn't for Playstation? How could all of modern gaming exist if it wasn't for Nintendo?
You failed to mention smartphones and iPads. Which is the main concern. The platforms you specified have leaned towards the greedy business practices that as a gamer you should despise. You don't even consider smart phone gaming a real platform right? Well the same crap is coming to consoles already. Without at least one company that cares about the quality of their games, there is no standard set. No competition. Without that you would get incomplete games at full price, and it would be the same as the year before. Sounds kinda familiar already. 3rd parties already take advantage of that and instead of setting standards, console developers now actually build their consoles with 3rd parties in mind. Making development easier for them to push out more incomplete software even faster. What Nintendo does is respectable. When 3rd parties act like politicians and developers act like children blasting them on twitter. Nintendo puts on their big boy pants, and starts making quality games. They hold up their own console. Something that would be impossible for the other 2 consoles. Nintendo makes games for the child inside of us all, but their stance on gaming is more mature then the other 2 consoles combined. They should take notes. PC is a different story altogether. Might end up being where I would go if Nintendo left the industry.
its for super smash bros
Didnt this ass do one of these a couple weeks ago? Im not going to watch it, I already know how unfunny and lame its going to be.
Well according to Nintendo most of their demograph is older male gamers so lets put this to rest right now. 90+% of Wii U consoles online 70+% of connected users (i.e. 63% overall) visit eShop on a “regular basis. Many of those people are repeat.” Wii U eShop demographics 0-12 – 1% 13-17 – 5% 18-24 – 33% 25-34 – 46% 35+ – 14% M/F – 93/7
Thanks for posting Wii U's demographics data revealed by Nintendo of America's Senior Marketing Manager, Damon Baker. Here's the Unity & Wii U eShop conference video to accompany it. https://www.youtube.com/wat...
Loving all the disagrees from all these trolls...people, these numbers are all factual straight from Nintendo...you cant disagree with facts! Haters dont want to see the truth obviously because its easier to try to make Nintendo the kiddy scapegoat...but thats just not the case here!!!
These statistics prove many that many WiiU owners are adults. They do not prove Nintendo games are not childish.
Kind of a moot point don't you think? How would you ever statistically prove any fanbase's majority is childish? You could make a statement like this for any fanbase. :/
Wii U isn't for kids, it's just a poorly-designed console, with low specs, based on a gimmick, with the usual rehashed Mario, Zelda, etc. IPs. It is a system for diehard Nintendo fans only, and there just aren't enough of them left to make it a successful competitor in the gaming market. The Nintendo of old was a fantastic company; the NES, SNES, and (to a lesser extent) Nintendo 64 were all fantastic consoles. I still own all of those, and hundreds of games for them. But starting with the Gamecube (the little purple Barney Box), and after, Nintendo became obsessed with using gimmicks to set themselves apart. The Wii was entirely based on a waggle gimmick (coupled with cheap hardware), the 3DS is based on an unappealing fake 3D gimmick (again coupled with cheap hardware), and now the Wii U is here, based (yet again) on a gimmick. The gamepad is the single feature that resulted in the base Wii U console being woefully underpowered, due to the high cost of that controller. Look at all the promo materials from Nintendo, they show the gamepad front and center, and the console in the background, as if it were an afterthought. Sadly, the console is so lacking in even the most standard features, it fell way short of what it should have been. If you don't buy into Nintendo's silly gimmicks, then you really aren't going to care about their gaming hardware. Judging by the poor sales of Wii U and its anemic 3rd party support, most people just aren't falling for the gimmick train, yet again. Sadly at this point, there's no way Nintendo can resurrect or repair the Wii U's fortunes; either they scrap it soon and release a much better designed console, without the gimmicks, or just call it a day and go 3rd party. How the mighty have fallen!
If opinions are like a**holes, then this particular video's opinion needed a good shower and scrub, like, last year. The system isn't designed specifically for children. Anyone telling you different is an elitist console war fantard with an anti-Nintendo agenda, and shouldn't be given further consideration in any discussions pertaining to the company, its systems, or its games.
Oh, and that goes double for the ones that keep trying to convince people that the console is dead and can't recover, that it's tech is too outdated to deserve any games, that the gamepad is nothing but a gimmick while ignoring the fact that its got all the same buttons as the other controllers aside from the touch screen, and all of those other stale "reasons" why Nintendo and its systems are, supposedly, "doomed". Haters are always gonna hate, but the Wii U is on an upswing and is making Nintendo profit, and will soon be doing even more for them, and we don't even need to remark on the 3DS because it's a runaway success.
Jeez monkey, why don't you tell us how you really feel huh? :P
if you like milked mario and zelda and dk games then the wiiu is for you but dont listen to these nintendo fanboys its not some gods gift to gaming like they say it is
Calling others out as fanboys? Saying the games are milked? Making claims about how they treat Nintendo when it's a common thing everywhere by all console followers to praise their preferred machine? Way to keep your own console-war-soldier biases hidden. Totally can't tell how much of a personal issue you have with all the things you've mentioned./s You're the one people shouldn't be listening to. Each system has great games outside of their first party material that are worth owning the systems for, if you're a fair-minded gamer instead of a fanboy, and that includes the Wii U. Get back under the bridge.
The Wii U is for bros....who smash...it's super. mmm..
I feel like this topic is written and addressed every 2 days. Nintendo is a family based system that is finally releasing good software. Can't we just leave it at that?
Hello i'm Brandon from the video and would like to defend my claim that more kids own a Wii U than adults.So I got some numbers for you here you go:There are 2 types of people who have a Wii U. Young kids and hardcore Nintendo fans like myself. Nintendo has yet to get that hardcore gamer over to the Wii U (unless your a hardcore Nintendo fan... well duh) and as proof of this Skylanders Swap Force (which primarily young kids play if your older and play it that's fine just stating facts) sold 280000 on Wii U and 160000 on PS4 which the ps4 has a about 4million bigger install base. Now Call of Duty Ghost (which primarily teens and adults play not young kids) sold 180000 on Wii U and it sold 2 million on Xbox One which the Xbox One has actually sold 2 million less than the Wii U. Now comparing those numbers clearly there's a higher interest for Call of Duty (which is played mostly by teens and adults) on the Xbox One (and the ps4 version sold 2.55 million BTW so higher interest there also) than there is on Wii U. Now comparing Skylanders clearly there is a higher interest for Skylanders (which is mostly played by young kids) on Wii U than on PS4 (which again PS4 has a bigger install base. So if you have game marketed towards kids selling more on Wii U than on PS4 even when the PS4 has about a 4million install base advantage over Wii U and you have a game like Call of Duty (which is well they don't really need to market that anymore lol but the point is mostly teens and adults play that) selling a ton more on Xbox One (which again the x1 has a smaller install base) clearly allot of young kids have a Wii U more so than the other consoles. I understand allot of hardcore Nintendo fans have a Wii U (like me) but you have to admit there are more young kids on Wii U than on the other consoles.
