Scott Moffitt of Nintendo tells the difference between Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo.
Quite the oppisite. The Wii U has many fantastic exclusives but the game Library is not broad in any sense compared to PC,PS4, or X1.
Nintendo games do often over a lot of genres though. :U
You must not have done a lot of research into the genres that are actually present on the platform.
He said APPEAL is broad... Meaning the games that are good appeal to a broad or wide audience and aren't as niche as some other games. When your game is good...people will flock to play it. Word of mouth is still strong advertising.
i disagree sales speak for themselves
If sales were all that mattered, then nothing would exist besides CoD. Sales only tell half the tale. Fact.
Mario Kart Wii on a 100 million consoles sold over 30 million, so its not true......you have wii fit also, wii sports resorts.....new super mario bros.....you have the ds which have games that sold a lot also....so only people fit in his category of sales speak for themselves is Nintendo and 3rd parties.......sony and microsoft would have to add 2 or 3 halo or uncharted game sales together to reach 20 million sales
Damage control .
Wow at the above comments. So because Justin Bieber sells a ton of records, does that mean he makes quality music? "Our core, most passionate Nintendo fans certainly are much older than that and are in their 20’s and 30’s and they grew up with our games." I am one of those fans. Nintendo has a 30 year proven track record on delivering QUALITY exclusives hand over fist. I don't agree with them making the Wii-U less powerful but all their exclusives score 90+ on metacritic. No broken games or patches or BS downgrades.
Shigeru Miyamoto said the Wii U is upgradable.
There was also a rumor sometime back that the Wii-U got a CPU and GPU overclock...Don't know if it was ever confirmed by Nintendo. http://www.vg247.com/2013/0...
He makes music lots of people enjoy. That's all he cares about, and all the people who like his music care about. His albums don't have to be classics. Just enjoyable. I don't even know any of his songs, but I'm tired of that being the excuse. Hell, popularity for popularity's sake- Justin Bieber, if you will- is why the Wii did as well as it did. Or does that not count in that case?
-----> My point You. Popularity ≠ quality.
I completely agree!c'mon.Smash(fighting ) pikmin(strategic) mariokart (racing) bayonetta 2 (action) mario 3d world (platform) zelda(actuon rpg) and more. Not only that they are some of the best reviewed games of this gen for each genre. And yes i own a ps4 as well
Who cares about sales numbers. People just hate to hate
I like great games.
I'm fifty one and I love Nintendo because they develop the best hardware and software in the world. It's my opinion that no other home video game console developer comes remotely close. Nintendo innovates in many different ways. Sony and Microsoft are like two aging dinosaus stuck in the mud fighting to the death!!!! Both look the same!!! Both host many of the same video game software. Both are very similar tech wise. Zero innovation. Next generation the PS5 will be more Powerful. Next generation the Xbox 2 will be more powerful and... That's it. Move? Kinect? Junked! The Wii remote? Used by millions of gamers today. The Game Cube controller? People are searching far and wide for GCN adapters for SSB Wii U. Now next generation what will Nintendo offer as far as a home video game console? You can guess but nobody really has a clue outside of Nintendo. See? It's going to be a surprise. Nintendo will innovate and surprise gamers that's innovation. That's Nintendo. i've written before I would have loved to be where Nintendo first showed off the Wii remote. This is it!!!! Wow!!! That must have been one hell of a surprise!!! A video game controller that a child could understand but makes surgeons do their jobs better. A video game controller that helped stroke victims and brought so many people (back) to this wonderful thing I like to call video games!!!!! I can't wait to see what's next from Nintendo I'm sure it will be a big surprise!!!!
While their games are generally (but not always) good, their hardware is far, far from the "best in the world". Nintendo's hardware USED to be the best (in the era of NES/SNES), but for the last decade or so, their hardware has been far behind its competition, and lacking in even the most commonly expected features. Nintendo feels that if they throw a gimmick into the system, it will sell; worked well (for a while) with the Wii, failed miserably with the Wii U. The Wiimote was a bad gimmick that ruined most games on the Wii, the waggle was very inaccurate and annoying to have to deal with to play games. And most games forced you to use the Wiimote, whether you wanted to or not. So no, their hardware really isn't very good at all, which is why the Wii U has pretty much failed in this generation.
..pretty much failed? Lol..I suspect Nintendo has VERY good margins.
Well said! Will be very interesting what Nintendo's next generation console will be. Perhaps the only one ;)
Lol!!! Your kidding me right????? Nintendo has got a ten billion dollar war chest as Sony... bleeds to death.
The main reason, imo, that the Game Cube Controller adapters are selling so well is because the Wiimote and Gamepad are rubbish for playing a fighting game. I tried using the wiimote for Smash Wii, but within 15mins I was on ebay trying to find a gamecube control because it is an appalling control system for anything but actual motion based games. Nintendo may 'innovate', but the core gamers still want an actual control to be able to play their games properly instead of wiggling their wrist at a screen non-stop...
Lol!!!! There's literally millions of Mario Kart 8 owners that I'm sure would disagree of your "assesment" of the Wii remote!!! It's ironic that you dismiss the Wii's (two game cube duct taped together) features when it literally kicked Sony's and Microsoft's (hd triple core red ring of death super powered death machine's) ass's. I hope you keep that in mind when Nintendo wins this home video game console generation cause the least powerful and least expensive home video game console alway's, always, always wins. Now let's talk about Move. For years Sony exec.'s call the Wii a "toy" then stole the whole idea outright!!! That's right it failed miserably. Poor old Sony. Yeah the function laden 360 was a blast until it red ringed on you. I personally know people that went through five or six of them. Did you know when Microsoft first started mass producing the 360 an engineer literally raised his hand and said we have to stop the line we're getting too many bad ones. Microsoft didn't sell home video game consoles that might break they sold home video game console's that they knew would break (scum of the Earth) and when rrod's started Popping up everywhere Microsoft was like... ????? They lost (invested) four billion dollars on the first Xbox and the 360 came in last but... oh the features!!!! I wonder how you'll feel when Apple buys Sony's game division for pennys on the dollar lol!!!!! Believe me this home video game console generation is not even close to over. I have to admit you sound bitter is that why you feel so motivated to go to Nintendo articles and try to spread your venom? You are pathetic.
