U.K.-based analyst Screen Digest says game-makers are flooding the Wii with an abundance of games this holiday, more so than Xbox 360 and PS3. Wii-86 360-47 Ps3-38
yea but most of em suck only mario galaxy would br worth anyones time this yr
Even Nintendo isn't immune to trying to cash in on Wii's success by porting gameboy games to the Wii at a premium price for "easy money". Big Brain Academy: http://www.gamespot.com/wii... You know what they say, throw enough sh!t at the wall, something will stick.
The latest issue of EGM has an article on how the Wii and DS have become the gaming consoles of crap. They're right. Nintendo doesn't care about quality anymore. Just quantity. It's a great article if anyone hasn't read it yet. It's the November issue. They talk about how anyone can get a game approved by Nintendo while Sony and Microsoft are much tougher. They actually don't want their gamers ripped off by a lot of bad games.
1.1- Huh? So 7's on a Wii game is a bad omen for the entire console? Please explain how with Lair and Blue Dragon the PS3 and 360 haven't already wrought destruction on the fact of the earth? 1.2- What? Oh, sorry, I was busy watching Brawl and Galaxy videos.
The only problem is the wii only has one top game coming out i.e. SMG. Other than that its not worth looking at. Sure the 360/ps3 have fewer games coming out, but a heck of a lot more top games coming out. Remember folks Quailty > Quantity
quality over quantity
Battalion Wars 2 Manhunt 2 Raving Rabbids 2 MOH Heroes 2 (LOL lotta 2's) Bleach Fire Emblem Naruto DBZ Sorry, but just because you don't know of any Wii games doesn't mean that there aren't any coming out. That's like saying the 360 only has Mass Effect or the PS3 only has Uncharted- it's just not a fair look.
But which one of those looks...good?
You have SSBB, SMG, Mario Kart Wii, and... ??? Does it have any games of substance? I guess No More Heroes looks good...but at the same time...I wouldn't put any money on it.
I mean, in terms of holiday software sales...you have to wonder who will win out? Nintendo has the most consoles out but I do believe they have the worst attach rate for games outside of Wii Sports and Wii play (both are bundled software anyway) And will 3rd partys continue to pound these cheap games into the market or will they slowly peel back as they did with the Gamecube?
" I do believe they have the worst attach rate for games outside of Wii Sports and Wii play (both are bundled software anyway)" you do believe? show facts.
...but I guess most of these Wii-games are "virual console" games. IMO those aren't real Wii games. For me there are only 2 must-have games on the Wii: Corruption and Galaxy. Most games on the Wii are just filler and not worth buying.
no those are just game games. If counting the VC it would be a whole lot more.
Never trust someone to give a valid opinion if they "didn't bother to read the article." Or should I just say never trust 3/4 of the people on N4G?
How do you think Sony did so well with PS1 and PS2? They flooded the system with games. A whole lot of them crap, good chunk alright, and a small crop of greatness. Now the Wii and DS are implementing it and you guys say how dumb it is.... uh-huh
I wonder how many of these games are actually feature length, and how many are just overpriced mini-games or mini-game compilations.
With such a broader owner demographic, the Wii faces the challenge of releasing enough games that'll appeal to every one who owns a Wii. What many on this site may consider to be a "quality" title will be unappealing to a larger portion of Wii-owners than say 360 and PS3-owners. Haze, for example, might only appeal to a segment of Wii-owners but will appeal to MOST PS3-owners simply because more PS3-owners fit into the same demographic (a demographic that likes those type of games). A Wii-owning father w/ two young kids might see Haze as just another overly-violent piece of garbage and consider Zack and Wiki to be #1 quality title this holiday season. Just because a game doesn't appeal to you doesn't mean it's not a quality title.
Many of the fanboys in this website are not the intended target for many of the games available on the wii, so they resort to calling them bad. I for one am glad the wii has such a variety of games because it truly has something to offer to everyone. Gaming would be boring if all there was to play was FPSs or simulators. I find it funny to see how those people who claimed the wii had no games have now shifted to "they have no story", "they are re-hashes of previous games", "quality over quantity." The negatives are endless, and so are the anecdotal accounts of how their wii's are just sitting there collecting dust.
I see your point here, guys. The problem is that there's a lack of substance on the Wii right now. If Team Ico, Kojima Productions, SCEA Santa Monica, Capcom (RE5 and DMC4), Epic, and Valve aren't working on the system...you don't have much to say for it. Nintendo will save Nintendo. They don't have Capcom to hold them up this time. Viewtiful Joe and Resident Evil 4 were the only reasons to buy a Gamecube in the first place! Motion controls only last you so long... It feels tiring after awhile and...people can't delve into a game involving little-to-no emotion.
Im excited about a few wii games, rygar, umbrella Chronicles, Soulcalibur legends.
most of the wii games suck
Most New Wii games are old PS2 titles from 2005 or shovel ware. Not to say there aren't going to be a few gems but most of the games are trash.
You know, im looking forward to more PS3 games than Wii games.....Really the only Wii games I look forward to are their official titles. I gave up on 3rd party games on the Wii. Quality beats quantity.....
My problem with Wii games being released... there is a real lack of story driven games on the Wii. The Wii controller would be perfect for games like "The Longest Journey" but instead every second game is either a sports or party game.
and ill be lmao when all these companies go out of business cause next to nobody buys 3rd party games on nintendo consoles... i was looking at VG charts and compared sales of both consoles games over 1 million (360s i only look at games released before october 2006, Wii i minuesed bundled games) quite a few million difference...like said before Quality >>>>> Quantity...a concept companies like EA doesnt get. heh i just looked at 3rd party games over a mil on each within the first 11 months... 14.5 mil on the 360 Vs. 2 mil
2 mil? Raving Rabbids and Red Steel both broke the million mark, and that was before summer...
and the claim to fame at your house is, "I've got more cranberry sauce than my whole block combined..."
lol. yes. this IS like that.
More crappy games for the lemmings.
Yey more PS2 Ports! With Backwards compatibility going on the new PS3's you'll need something that can play ancient PS2 games...
its nice to see that the wii will have over 80 games from now til march but that doesnt matter. out of all those 80 games, less than 10 will be any good. have you guys been to the game store recently and saw that the nintendo wii has about 60-70 games for it but only a handful are worth playing. the wii sucks and it will fail, i cant wait til they fail cause then they'll probably make a system that i may just want to buy. i only bought the gamecube cause i was a child and silly. if the wii looked like the gamecube, i would have never bought it. nintendo sucks and a bunch of fat chicks and old people are buying it now but its gonna fail. sales for the wii in japan are down more than 30 percent and more than 20 percent in the us and uk. fcvk the nintendo wii, it sucks.i like my n64 more than the wii. golden 007. perfect dark.mario 64.
Just because you don't like the games you see at the store it doesn't mean they suck. If I was to use your logic, I could say that Final Fantasy games suck since that kind of games does not appeal to me, but there are many people who would disagree. Neither the PS3 or Xbox appeal to me because I can play the simulators, FPSs, and just about every type of games offered by those consoles better in my PC. Better on-line access, better graphics, better frame rates, better controls, you name it, yet you don't hear me saying those two systems suck.
"the wii sucks and it will fail..." "the wii sucks and it will fail..." "the wii sucks and it will fail..." "the wii sucks and it will fail..." Say it over and over again and maybe it will be true...
Why the corn flakes?
Maybe I can wipe the dust off my Wii.
not sure if you've noticed, but the Wii's case doesn't have holes in it. If you're not wiping it off a couple times a month, it's going to get dusty. Trust me, I've been playing the thing every day but it's still a dust magnet.
What do you spend your time doing on that thing??? Once you get through Metroid...it's pretty much back to bigger and better things. (PS3, 360, and PC gaming.)
But the real question is how many of them are good, how many are built from the ground up for the Wii, and how many aren't cheap PS2/PSP ports?
There might be some crap coming out for Wii. But hey, there's plenty of crap coming out for the 360 and PS3 as well. Everyone holds 360 and PS3 games in such high esteem (at least while simultaneously flaming Wii) but when you get down to it the only really great releases for the 360 since summer have been Halo 3 and Bioshock, and the PS3 basically just had Warhawk.
