N247: This holiday season is going to be a great one thanks to the great library of games still to come in 2014. The Wii U leads the pack with 5 exclusives.
Wow!! Those 4 months are hot for Wii U :o!!
Isn't the author forgetting about a few X1 and PS4 exclusives still to come, like Forza, LBP3, Killer Instinct S02? If it's real exclusives, then what about Super Smash Bros? As for those WiiU exclusives, the only one that interests me is Bayonetta 2.
Exactly, if LBP doesn't count because its on PS3 and Forza doesn't count because is on 360, then Smash and Sonic Boon who both are gonna be on 3DS should not count either.... the list is biased to make Wii U look better
If you threw in FH2 and LBP3... The Wii U lineup still looks more impressive.
Not to mention Samurai warriors 4, Singstar Ultimate and other exclusives people seem to forget about coming to PS4.
DualWielding LBP doesn't count because its on PS3 in that case neither do SonicBoon and Smash Bros as they are coming to the 3DS as well.
@TripC50 no, if he doesn't like the Wii U games in the first place! he even said that what he's interested in in Bayo2, which means, he's NOT a Nintendo fan at all.
Smash and Sonic Boom are the same game but different version. Nothing is same other than characters for both are same.
Smash Bros is not the same game on both plattforms. They are made to work together, but they are not the same. Forza, other than graphics is going to be the exact same game, the same experience, this is the reason. You can disagree, but it is a fact, that they are not the same, Nintendo said so many times.
It's not like you can play the ps3 and ps4 linked together and get new modes. THERE basicly is no reason to own both lbp3 games. Yet the 3ds and wiiu will have different play modes and game styles. Plus I don't know hear many hype about lbp3. Minecraft and the Disney stuff sort of killed that not to mention mario maker. Yet im sure the ps4 will continue to sell off an optimistic future. The vita needs some love though sony.
@DualWielding Sonic boom and smash bros 3ds are there completely own games. Sonic boom is a prequel to the wii u game and smash bros 3ds is a completely different experience. They were built from the ground up as there own separate titles. Games like Lbp3 is the same game ported to both consoles.
Even if Super Smash Bros. should be excluded, you would still have three games exclusive for Wii U, only playable on Wii U. On the Xbox One side, one of them is a collection of previously released content.
"then Smash and Sonic Boon who both are gonna be on 3DS should not count either" Difference is that the games are not identical to their console counterpart. So it's not even the same case.
Lets see how these exclusives influence hardware sales, if you are to judge sales by exclusives then PS4 would be in loosers seat, but for some reason I believe it wont.
Yeah wiiu is lookin good but I wonder why they left off guilty gear, planetside2, and lbp3 off the ps4 list. Probably because its on ps3 as well but the lbp 3 experience on ps4 will be much better on ps4 due to infinte levels and such but oh well.
The rest of my 2014 isn't too busy. * Smash Brothers - 3DS * Smash Brothers - Wii U * Fantasy Life - 3DS * Forza Horizon 2 - XB1 * Tales of Hearts - Vita * Most likely, COD:AW & Halo: MCC * Random PC games via Steam sale * Other Nintendo eshop games I haven't bought yet like MMX,MMX2, shovel knight ect....
on Wii U, Id like to play Bayonetta and Smash On Xbox ONE, I'll take D4 and Halo. on PS4. . . I gotta tip my hat to Nintendo tho' . . Solid.
Exactly why I've been saying wiiU has a chance at beating the PS4 this holiday
where is LITTLE BIG PLANET 3 for PS4?
Exclusives only. That's why Forza Horizon 2 isn't up there. LBP3 is on PS3. FH2 is on 360. Though that doesn't explain Super Smash Bros...
Biased author on a site devoted to Nintendo explains it.
Both have their own unique stages, modes, content, and visuals when it comes to Super Smash Bros for Wii U & 3DS.
Smash for 3DS and Smash for Wii U only share a roster and most of the trophies, as well as the same online modes.[as far as we know] Both games have differences in stages, amounts of music each stage can hold, the different modes available, and a bunch of other things that have already been discussed. The two different versions are being mentioned because they're different enough to warrant being considered different exclusive games, despite being in the same series.
Nintendo does not consider the two Smash games to be ports of each other and they are not. They have different modes and levels and only share the same fighter roster.
Excluding SSB, you would still end up with 3 games for Wii U, 2 for Xbox One (excluding Halo Collection), 1 for PS4.
to be fair.. FH2 on 360 is as much differnt from FH2 on X1 as 3DS smash is to WiiU smash
Was just about to point that out. Especially if they want to include Smash, which released first on 3ds and will likely be more popular on the 3ds as well. Forza Horizon should be on the list too.
The author is a Nintendo fanboy, he said LittleBigPlanet 3 is not a PS4 exclusive so he didn't include it. Yet he included Smash which is on the 3DS. He wants to make the other consoles look as if they have no games.
The site's called Nintendo247... I'm surprised that people are somewhat surprised the author is biased.
Yeah smash is on handheld same as Sonic but it's still a different game with different modes depending on wich version you have whereas lbp3 will be the ecactly same game with better graphics
@OI_G, Oh right cutting out content from the game and making it exactly the same with 1 different stage and 2 different characters, IE cutting out content is considered a new game? LOL what a joke.
Both versions of Smash have different levels 3ds has handheld stages while Wii U version only has console stages.. not to mention the art style and controls are totally different. You're welcome.
It's also on the PS3 and they're the same game. Who knows if the game was originally on the PS3 and was ported to the PS4. Smash on Wii U & 3DS are different from each other.
@Flamehawk You have obviously done zero research if you think that there's any difference in the roster between Smash 3DS and Smash U. Each one has its own set of exclusive stages and modes, and the Wii U version holds more music while the 3DS version allows you to shut your 3DS and still listen to the music from the game while it's in sleep mode via a music player app in-game, while you switch music tracks with the L and R buttons. There's no cut content, and you've dun goofed.
But this isn't the WiiU vs the PS4, PS3, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. So games on the 360 and PS3 shouldn't count.
What counts is, that the games are exclusivd to their plattform, so there is a reason to get that plattform. There are 80milions ps3s and xbox360s each out there, if a game of the PS4 comes to PS3, it is not really exclusive and one would not get a console for this, if he can play it on old gen as well. Graphics alone are a stupid argument for getting a console. Of course people will take that out of its context and think I am talking NES graphics^^
Little big 3 is coming to PS3 as well....
But this is WiiU vs the PS4 and X1. So why are PS3 and 360 games included but not in the title? Funny how they only count to suite his argument. Can you play LBP 3 on X1 or WiiU? No? So it's an exclusive.
So PS4 has no games this coming fall huh...
Nothing exclusive anyways.
It hasn't got much, no.
Wii u has a stacked exclusive holiday season. XB1 and PS4 have stacked third party support. Looks like console gamers (even those with only 1 console) will be having a great holiday season playing games.
I might as well pick up a second hand wii. Since it all about "gameplay" (just as well considering it's one generation behind) and you end up with the same old zelda, Mario, smash titles anyway, there is absolutely no point buying a new Nintendo console.
All the new games on Wii U you can not get on Wii. Thief you must be very ignorant because most can say the same about ps4 or xbox 1 since most of those games have a copy on last gen too. You won't find mario 3d world on wii, or mario kart 8 and those are just two big ones I liked on my Wii U lol the original Wii doesnt even have HD . Just be honest with yourself kid.
No it's the other way around. U might as well pick up a wii u because its backwards compatible with wii games. Unlike the greedy competition who don't want to screw up the sales for all their cheap remasters and over priced psnow.
Thief is next gen graphics or gameplay? Is it about how it looks or how it feel? Depending on ur answer to that then you buy ur preference. I think there is a level of insecurity that ps owners have that encourages them to have to bash Nintendo but its kool......
Right let's not buy Ps4 or Xbone either for the exact same cods, AC's, gta's, Forza, halo's, gow, knacks, and gt's that we see every year.
I like how the author conveniently forgets about all the great 3rd party games that will be coming out on everything else, but not on Wii U. The author should've noted that these are some of the great games that Wii U owners can't play, to make his list less biased. Dragon Age: Inquisition Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor Alien: Isolation NBA 2K15 The Evil Within Evolve Assassin's Creed Unity WWE 2K15 Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare November 4 The Crew Far Cry 4 LittleBigPlanet 3 GTA 5 I don't know about everyone, but I didn't buy a Ps4 just to play exclusives. I like exclusives but I like Third party games as well.
Came in to pretty much say this, while those aren't exclusives, you can't play them if you own only a Wii-U
Sorry square but unless its Little big planet 3 you can play every other game on the list you put on xbox one as well and quite possibly ps3 and 360 besides isnt evolve coming next year, dragon age and evil within? (im not sure thats why i am asking) . NOPE NOT ON WII U!! THATS WHY I HAVE A PS4 FOR ONLINE GAMING!
But not on the Wii U.
"It will be coming out on everything else, but not on Wii U. " By everything i meant everything like Ps3,360, X1 and Pc. Just not on Wii U.
The article is about EXCLUSIVES. Salty much?
I love articles like these. People show their bias when they defend erroneous statements. Fact is exclusive content does not make for an exclusive game. Did you see Xbox fans parading around Tomb Raider Underworld and Dead Rising 2 as exclusives because of exclusive DLC? Or what about Sony fans with Assassin's Creed and Batman? IF we apply the same level of consistency, then Smash and Sonic aren't exclusives. Much the same way FH2 and LBP3 aren't as well. Captain Toad has been officially delayed in Europe till January. I'll be shocked if the same doesn't hold true for North America too. So actually the list of "exclusives" in 2014 is pretty anemic for all platforms. Sad thing is, having them as cross-platform doesn't diminish the quality and allure of any of these IPs. But fantards will be fantards I suppose.
That would mean it has more exclusives then the Wii U because they can't even play those games, owned.
I think that might be the point tho. Nintendo is self sustainable. Sony would love to sell consoles based of exclusives. If they didn't then they wouldn't waste money on them. The gaming industry hates Nintendo for that. So keep that in mind when u bash Nintendo. They do a lot of good for us gamers and should be respected. Also that list......yeah it would be kind of me to say that half of those will be "great". I personally will only be buying cod and evolve which isn't released till 2015. I bought my ps4 as a 3rd party shooter blood and gore box too, because its a one trick pony, and that one trick isn't even theirs. It's a 3rd party trick. So while u play those games on the list. I will pick and choose from it wisely, because I know I have to save my money for the highest rated games of the generation so far. Only on wii u.
PS4 and PC are multiplat beasts for sure and Nintendo does not have much in terms of third party but I think the article makes a good point in saying Wii U has some of the best exclusives. Since I won both a PS4 and Wii U I'm getting the most I can out of the generation. Choosing between the two is like getting a lobster dinner and ice cream dessert. Why not have both lol?
Exactly, the exclusives game is more between Sony and M$ because that's mainly what can make the difference between them, but to brag about Nintendo and their upcoming exclusives is weird because this is a console mostly about those few exclusives while the 3rd parties support is nowhere to be seen.
The Wii U is the system to owned rite now unless you wanna play Destiny
The list is deficient on XO.They missed FH2,Project Spark,Ori and Blind Forest,Halo 5 Beta.I see for the first time Sony leave the holiday season so empty in my life.It is realy interesting which is very big mistake.
Halo 5 beta? You count that as a game and then say Sony's holiday lineup is bare? Umm, ok.
You do realise that LBP3, Samurai Warriors 4 and Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN are also coming out this year for the PS4. And Halo 5 Beta, really? You count that as a game? lol ok
Only a Pony would throw SW4 and GGXrd onto an exclusives list... Those are swaying NOBODY. If exclusives were coins, SW4 and GGXrd would be pennies. If they were pokemon, theyd be magikarp If they were superheroes, theyd be aquaman (not the bad ass one) If they were a snack, theyd be saltines If they were a birthday present, theyd be a 100-piece puzzle If they were a clothing store, theyd be baby gap If they were an intelligent novel, theyd be a coloring book ... I think you get the point... they are wellll below the relevancy and quality threshold... SW4 will be another SW and guilty gear will be played by all 100 of its fanbase.
Plus Guilty Gear Xrd is also for PS3 so it can't count as an exclusive. :/
Have fun playing yet another Forza, and some more Halo. Whoops, I mean the same Halo games you already played. HAHA!
Wow you can see all the fanboys hating on the Wii U sad, grow up please!!! I have a ps4 and I have to admit this holiday season is about the wii U next year nintendo still has some good titles coming but I know next year ps4 will have a steady line up starting with bloodborne for great exclusives. Just be honest with yourself !
Wow these kids are really hating Nintendo! Just admit the Wii U has a nice line-up. I also have a ps4 and wii u and if you like games you can't just stick to one console you will get bored!
Hahaha i'm not the only one who sees it but after 2 years these people start to disgust me every weekend when i try to catch up with gaming news after a long week of working the first thing i notice are those rabid fanboys complaining and bashing everything they don't like it's starting to get really sad the only thing that keeps me coming back is the assumption that these people are little kids in their puberty that don't have a life or girlfriend so their only bit of entertainment is bashing stuff they don't like and there is no reason other than being a dick for their behaviour
Like always Nintendo has the best exclusives.
Grand Theft Auto 5 is going shit on everything in November, Wii U owners are pumping up their chests for no reason.
