"Will the Wii’s successor satisfy old-school Nintendo fans? One fan, VGD’s Dylann Bobei, has some ideas about how it could."
I'm reet looking forward to the Wii 2. Nintendo made plenty of mistakes this time around but still came on top.
They will win me back by just having an updated, HD Nintendo console.
the wii had more exclusive hardcore games than the gamecube did
These GC titles really surprised me in a positive way: -Resident Evil 4 -Eternal Darkness -Starfox Adventures -Star Wars: Rogue Squadron 2 -Metroid Prime -tLoZ: Wind Waker -Super Smash Bros Melee Wii has some superb games like Metroid Prime 3 and Super Mario Galaxy 1 & 2, but there was this magic of immersion in some GC games that wasn't as powerful with most Wii games because of the hardware limitations.
mature games, normal controllers,and gr8 graphics...
the wii had plenty mature games, normal controller is a given and graphics dont make good games
Really? Then why is it more fun to walk around the overworld of Twilight Princess fighting dozens of enemies on horse back much more fun than the empty overworld of Ocarina of Time? Couldn't possibly be because of the gosh darn, teh graphics! They couldn't do those things without the graphical update of the Wii. Or do you think Nintendo chose to have an empty world back in OOT because they thought it was more fun?
1, Every game in 1080p 2, More AA & better textures 3, A proper gamepad 4, A good online network 5, Battlefield 3 & other top titles with all the above, then I'm in.
1) Even on the 360 and ps3 that isnt the case 2) Like how the other systems are all shooters now? no thanks and better textures dont make better games 3) Valid 4) Valid 5) battefield is a top title? Sorry but best seller in the states and top title doesnt mean the same thing I think you mean a more diverse and original library containing lots of interesting exclusives that the 360 and ps3 dont have. Thats how it will kick butt
Thats the title and PS3 & 360 don't do games in 1080p with proper AA and textures, that's why if Nintendo want me that's what I'd need to come across, otherwise I'd stay with what I've got, that was my point. Sigh...
...buy a PC
How will nintendo make PS3 or/and X360 owners buy wii 2 ?? Action games KH3 with PS3 no failure rate on the console A real new Pokemon game with 3D enviroment and more function with pokemons not just fight not just the same thing over and over again Remakes or HD collection in the third or forth year of the console
OOOOh... pokemon fanboy disgreed because he don't like the truth of pokemon games
With the Pokemon statement, I thought Pokemon Coliseum did that although you had to purify them which was annoying. Nintendo products are safe, I have a GBA SP, a 2005 NDS and a Gamecube from 2002 working to this day. I think Nintendo need good third party support like 360/PS3 get. Capcom and Sega always try and make good third party titles (which they do) for the GC and Wii.
I loved Coliseum But one title it mean one try Give it another try with the new hardware give a lot of freedom in development Pokemon it safe in handheld market So one game with real work wont effect toooo much
Win back the hardcore? Yes. I'm sure they'll give some thought to that after they're done rolling around in their mountains of money they coaxed out of the pop-mainstream masses.
What!!! However with hardcores or without them with nintendo titles nintendo will sell better
win back hardcore gamers bye bringing in hardcore games. the wii was a cash cow but not enough games to please everyone. that was the key to success the ps2 had. For every hannah montana, crash bandicot, or [place title here ] pixel or disney movie/game tie in. There was a GTA, SOCOM, Killzone, God of War, Twisted Metal, etc,. to compliment said "kiddy" title. Personally for every two games I bought for myself I was buying a dora the explorer, harvest moon, etc,. for my daughter. the PS2 truly was a one stop shop console. That's the magic ingredient all consoles are missing this gen imo. Matter of fact the ps2 was the only console in my home were everyone my wife included had their own personal controller. If nintendo can capture that magic the possibilities are endless for Wii 2.
I think the third party support should be better this time around than the Wii's third party games. Capcom and Sega can bring good games to a Nintendo console. Hopefully western third party studio can do a better job this time around than the usual dance games.
I completely agree. A nice balance of Eastern and Western games can do wonders for this new console.
just make it MANDATORY 1080p with 4-8x anti aliasing like the pc has had for the last 8 years (actually the pc is way beyond that now with 1600p or more and 64x anti aliasing but hey, at least the wii2 can try to get close)....and you'll be wayyy ahead of the 360 and ps3 with all their sub-hd and jaggies going on.
