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, but you won't see it soon. https://www.youtube.com/wat...
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.
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.
It makes profit ∴ it isn't a flop.
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.
other then 3rd place...prove a link to them profits you say. @ Vegamyster, Profitable and Wii U Sales Are Past 7 Million, profiable or not, its still in 3rd place under my comment, hurt feelings, but lack facts' """4uckin fact"""
@onyoursisterback .....erm...ok heres one from 2012: http://www.joystiq.com/2012... One from this week: http://www.gamespot.com/art...
"other then 3rd place..." Except it is not currently in 3rd place. Where are you getting this?
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.
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
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.
That title though...
i think nintendo is after wiiu next console
they is no
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.
I just came here to make sure I hadn't lost my reading comprehension.
That good grammar the.
How did this title make it past the mods? It makes no sense.
With a massive lineup next year, the launch of Amiibo, and Miyamoto just stating that there are several titles in development ; NO - of course they're not gearing up for their next system. It's in development, that's a given, but that thing won't be ready for at least the next 3-5 years. You'd be dreaming if you think they're replacing a TWO YEAR OLD system, with all these games slated to come out. I guess common sense isn't so common anymore.... -Sigh - Either way, the likeliest system that Nintendo is thinking "beyond " right now, would be 3DS, seeing that it's already been 3.5 years. Yet even so, there's still at the very least another 3 years for its main lifespan. The Vita isn't really much competition, except for inside Japan, so Nintendo can (and naturally, are) taking their name.
*Accidental Double Post *
Wii U is a console I'm considering to go along with my PS4 even if it will be replaced in a few years. It has a great selection of games this holiday as does the PS4. Gaming is just too expensive. Lol
My PS2 got replaced by my PS3, but i still have it hooked up, doesn't make it any less fun. Society is turning into a dumbed down mindless mass of fanboy drivel, so keep gaming on anything that supplies games. Oh and the Wii U is tons of fun years left in it still.
Wow, dat title.
Everyone is. Even Microsoft. https://m.youtube.com/watch... Contrary to popular belief, no matter how big a company is, they can't just magically produce consoles in a couple of months,
Well Nintendo actually can make a check mate to Sony and Microsoft if they end up releasing a new home console in the next two and half or three years.The PS4 and the Xboxone hardware is so underwhelming with games not reaching what the majority of people were expecting [email protected],in fact im getting serious bad vibes when im see games been released at 900p and not even been able to reach a minimum smooth framerate of 30fps that i think Nintendo can actually score if they invest a little more this time on hardware for there new home console.They just need to release a console with specs that can run games better than the Xboxone and PS4,atleast able to achive 1080p60fps without problem or better at a nice price tag and get third party support.They will have three to four years advance over the next generation from Sony and Microsoft and im pretty sure that people would invest.I already own all this new consoles and frankly i was expecting more from Sony and Microsoft new hardware i find underwhelming that im not playing all games at 1080p60fps by now,and i dont see things getting better.The thing that i expect from the next home console to hit consumers is actually a generation leap equal to the one seen from the PS2 to PS3 and Nintendo haves the opportunity to be the first to do it!
That would be the exact opposite of a checkmate, and a very stupid move. They would be pulling a Sega, and consumers (especially Wii I adopters) would not be very happy about it. Nintendo just needs to continue supporting the Wii U, and develop a better relationship with third parties for next gen
Im talking in a new machine in three years time.By them the WII U will be a 5 year old console.Five years should be the norm for new hardware in consoles!Do you really think Nintendo will not release a new home machine in three years;because im betting they will !
Are X thinking after the release of X.01??? Le Dur-brain article.
Even MS is thinking to the after x1. Xbox Zero
"Is Nintendo thinking to the after Wii U?" What the hell are you attempting to say??? Speak engrish much?
of course they are but their next console better not be a underpowered joke like the wiiu is that uses the excuse of a tablet controller to somehow make it next gen when ps4 can do that same thing with the vita, doesnt mean I wont get a wiiu but its way to weak it should have atleast had a gpu around 900 gigaflops
I hope it is going to be as powerful or more powerful than PS4. It needs to get some of the same 3rd party games that Sony and Microsoft gets. WII U gets only downgraded games nowadays.
Well certainly they are working on new hardware, these companies always are. That said I don't doubt this will be a short gen for them. If I had to predict I would say we get the next 2 years of solid 1st party releases from them. Zelda, Metroid, a 3D Mario platformer, Starfox. Mixed with other great 2nd party stuff like Xenoblade. But I don't see more than 1 from each ip. After that the party is over. I would hope they make the next system able to play Wii U games and GamePad compatible in some regard to ease the pain. But in the end the hardware will be too far behind in 2-3 years time. I love my Wii U and it's games but I think it's going to be more of a summer romance than a long term relationship.
