Is Nintendo thinking to the after Wii U?

Nintendo is recruiting! But it's not any kind of job offering. Will we get to see a new console coming from Nintendo soon?

Yes they're pretty much in the finals stages of announcing the next pseudo console that's also can be a handheld, and you will see it soon.

This is gonna be my most shortlived console. I bought it for Bayonetta 2 and then Smash. In a few months, I think I may get rid of it once Nintendo drops the support.

No, seriously, you are wrong.

Neonridr1139d ago

Zelda will be like Holiday 2015 at the earliest.. so there are still several more years ahead for the Wii U.

Sure Nintendo isn't going to have a 10 year plan like Sony will with their PS4, but that has never been Nintendo's game.

Wii U is a flop. Sorry it just is. Look at the sales. As horrible as press Microsoft has gotten, it will soon pass the Wii U in sales . The PS4 has already doubled the sales.

Dubaman1140d ago

It makes profit ∴ it isn't a flop.

NotAFanboyJustReal1140d ago

Put your Nintendo fanboyism aside and look at the sales. Compared to the Wii (which was a casual niche product) the sales are ABYSMAL. No 3rd party support, and only about 4-5 games a year. Pathetic. But it's OK, as long as you get to play Mario and Zelda.

@NotAFanboyJustReal

The Virtual Boy was a flop, it ending up having less than 25 games and was costly. The Wii-U is similar to the Gamecube where it might not be the best selling system or have the greatest 3rd party support but it was still profitable and had a decent amount of good games.

You don't have to be a fanboy to state fact. If anything, the fanboy is you.

@ Vegamyster, Profitable and Wii U Sales Are Past 7 Million,

"other then 3rd place..."
Except it is not currently in 3rd place. Where are you getting this?

Chrischi19881140d ago (Edited 1140d ago )

And even if it were 3rd place, nintendo makes money on the console now, it doesnt lose anything, I wonder what Microsoft does, even if it becomes 2nd place. Has Microsoft ever not lost money on the Xbox Brand? So what has Microsoft from being 2nd place soon? Losing money, but 2nd place, nice.

At the end of the day, these companies do what they do, to make money, not to entertain us. If they dont make money, what is the point even from being first place?

Now, if Sony could just get some traction with exclusives, they could catch up to Nintendo's debt ratio next gen...or the next.

Dubaman1140d ago (Edited 1140d ago )

Id just like to start off by saying im typing this reply using the WiiU its self. Pretty cool huh "P

So how many sales would constitute a success? Does it matter if all those sales still dont constitute any actual revenue for its company? If its based on its predecessor then surely the PS3 is a flop when compared to the PS2. The PS3 did actually cost Sony huge before it turned a profit though, unlike the WiiU as well as every other Nintendo console as a matter of fact.

The WiiU not only makes a profit but its sales are ever increasing.
I own 27 physical WiiU games plus around 30 + digital games.
I think you're the one hiding behind fanboyism here, my friend. I dont care what toy you use to play your games on.

Also 'its ok as long as you get to play Mario and Zelda'
You mean 2 of the longest running, most critically acclaimed, loved by players around the world games series off all time?
Well yeah...what kind of gamer wouldnt be ok with that? Some posing fanboy tool who thinks theyre too mature because they like constant hand holding, guns and boobies. Oh and sepia tone....bitches be hard for sepia

wonderfulmonkeyman1140d ago

Sorry, but the Wii U is not a flop.
For a console with as many issues as it has had, it's still going strong with a ton of really great exclusives.
You're putting too much emphasis on sales without looking at profit or the line-up then calling it a flop, and that makes you look like a hater.
You need to work harder to live up to your screen-name, bro.

The Wii U may not have massive numbers in sales, but the machine itself is not a failure at all. It is a nice machine. It's later games are good quality fun pieces of work. It's getting many good indie titles and seems to get more announced every week.

The Wii U has a great year coming. I wouldn't be so quick to dissmiss it as a total failure until we see how things go over next 12 months.

live2play1140d ago

i think nintendo is after wiiu next console

stalepie1140d ago (Edited 1140d ago )

they is no

franwex1140d ago

The games on it are freaking fun though. I have no regrets on purchasing mine 4 months ago. It's a little sad that so many people are missing out.
