EA responds to Nintendo's decision to release Wii MotionPlus without any first party games.
This is the kind of stuff that Nintendo does that goes unaccounted for when talking about third party support.
Good point. One i feel that goes undetected is the Nintendo channel. I feel that channel really helps with marketing third party games, the problem with that is how many people core or casual actually use the channel.
I just wish Nintendo assisted in more of the marketing so that more Wii owners could pick up more of those great games.I have met dozens of Wii owners that I try to start a discussion for Wii games like Madworld or No More Heroes,yet the the only game they discuss is Wii Music or crap like that. Other than that,I'm glad Nintendo is giving some time for 3rd parties.Sega has really taken the opportunity to shine
Agreed about Sega although i feel some games like Madworld are just to niche to sell over a million. Marketing could have helped though.
Games like Dead Space for the Wii, I think it wold do great with the Wiimote thats extra precise.
One thing Nintendo: you should have made the Wiimote like this from start, not with another expensive add-on.
Lets be honest, people think the...by people i mean the likes of you... price is already an overkill. Now imagine this, this tech in the Wii-mote in 2005/2006...Higher costs on the tech. The system package would have cost much higher. Nintendo does not like to lower their prices...can you imagine what kind of a cash hell it would be? Of course we all would have liked it from the beginning. But the price would be overkill if they included it back than( also the size would be bigger). Not saying I'm happy they are bringing it now, I'm happy they actually considered it to bring it anyway. And its been a while since i have put down money for controlers.
Well no. Because the internals of the Wii is a supercharged gamecube.
The Gamecube got sold or 69 Euro at the end of its lifecycle. The Wii gets sold for 250 Euro. Now go figure. Old hardware, premium price. The Wii shouldn't have be more expensive but should have had more precise Wiimote controls.
Ah well it doesn't even matter that much. Most Wiigames is shiatware anyway. If not its the same old Mario/Zelda and other rehashed IP's. And yes I know. I own a Wii.
Only making my point more true. Even if its a "super charged" GCN, they put a 250 price tag on it. Motion plus back then would have made it worse( Worse to you people ). it "shouldn't have" been more expensive? perhaps, but Nintendo still slapped a 250 on it. Now add up the costs for Motion plus, it would have gone above 250. Wether you think its a supercharged GCN or not. Nintendo's idea wasn't about "precises" motion controls, that was something that become a demand due the fact people "thought" it was something the Wii it could do....But developers hinted out several times that in its current state 1:1 wasn't there. Their idea was to replace to many Button presses/analogtilting with motion. Again, If motion plus was implemented within the Motes, it wouldn't be 250, but more.
is a let down..soo many lies. Nintendo cant even make a good online service like PSN or XBL, they robbing people's money with their high business talk bla bla. Reggie talks so much crap tbh, i really wanna hear what they have for this yr E3...my guess is nothing. Sony and Microsoft ftw.
*face palm* I challenge you to name 10 lies from Nintendo this gen. "they robbing people's money with their high business talk bla bla" When someone is giving their money away, not being forced...its...I don't know...not a theft? Let me ask you something, you bought a Ps3 or 360...right? How did they not let you buy the system with their business talk? Did you just got robbed? LOL
what are you talking about sidar?
O i'm sorry, you need to put on the "Show comment above mine" goggles. Here ya go *gives item to kev*.
especially to help 3rd party games. ie. Madworld
There games are shovelware,but they always manage to sell them. And y'know why? because they market the game with some new "must have accessory" to play it with. They're not just selling you the same old damn game,they're trying to offload there own merchandise that's needed to play and adds some new way of playing the same old damn games. People don't care so much for the game,there more concerned of all these new-fangled ways to PLAY the game. Look at Wii-fits sales compared to some of the Wii's actual games and tell me I'm wrong.
Not all the games are shovelware. Most of the third-party games are shovelware, but there are AMAZING games on the Wii.
Super Mario Galaxy
Super Smash Bris. Brawl
Metroid Prime 3
The Legend of Zelda: TP
House of the Dead: Overkill
Blast Works: Build, Trade, Destroy
Call of Duty: WaW
Medal of Honor: Heroes 2
Resident Evil: Wii edition
you're right i did buy a 360 and PS3 thanks to the right features that were advertised. i bought a wii for my sister thinking yes this could be fun(for like a few months) if you look at what the wii is offering, its all old gen stuff...the only thing thats new is the controller idea (which i highly doubt). I was expecting HD graphics, an online network, and many new ips but no all we get are some cheap ass games like wii sports, wii fit, you know the rest. Dont get me started on mario, thats so old now i bet he knew jesus. my point is nintendo hasnt really catered for my gaming needs, and am sure others agree with this.
" its all old gen stuff." Yeah cause we play games because its made now...Thats our passion right? Sony also promised 4D gaming...i guess they got you good. They stole your money.(all 3 companies had some Bizz BS talks, but saying just Nintendo had them? C'mon, to your own logic you are robbed as well, by Sony and MS) So they havn't catered to your needs, That makes it a fact that Nintendo is stealing money from people? Both points aren't even related, so basically you are mad at nintendo and then point at other stuff. Its funny how people bash on Nintendo over and over again. Yet you hear no one complain about the third party software. And you know, many high rated games on the "hd" system don't bring much new either. You still havn't mentioned 1 thing that is a lie.
nintendo is the worse this gen bro. if you prefer to play mario and zelda over and over again then do so. one thing is for sure i aint paying for ripoff games that are over 20 years old, crappy online that doesnt even come close to PSN and XBL, stupid controllers..why do i need more than 3 types of controllers?
