mean Gentlemen discuss their opinions on the new console announced by Nintendo at E3.
I read the article but.....huh?
The article is basically saying that not many people want to play a hardcore game like Assassin's Creed for instance on a small screen. The article also brings up that most gamers would rather buy a game like Assassin's Creed on 360/PS3 in order to avoid the tacted on gimmicks the WiiU version will offer.
I understood the article it was just sort of...idk...stupid imo. The main thing I like is the possibly of going to pinch a loaf playing BF3 online and not having to just leave the controller and not play. I gotta get my game on man!
I though hardcore gamers bought the better running port. Also the tablet options are going to be options yet the power is still going to be better. These same reasons are why the vita will not sell at all. I think this fan is mad that nintendo is going to beat Sony at their own game when it comes to the vita. You will have to plug it up yet it doesn't let you play real console games, you have to wait on the port.
scissor_runner, How on earth does the WiiU controller "beat" the Vita?? You are clearly mis-informed in regards to the specs and capabilities of the hardware. You believe the WiiU controller is more than it is and the Vita is less, and for that, you are wrong. If you honestly think you are right please elaborate & explain...i'm waiting with baited breath.
"The article is basically saying that not many people want to play a hardcore game like Assassin's Creed for instance on a small screen. " Then turn on the TV, and use the Wiiu controller as a secondary screen like inventory or anything like that.
@sidar Oh yeah, that seems like a great reason to buy a new console, to play most of the games I can already get with the promise of my inventory being on a different screen. The future is truly bright.
1) Big time devs/pubs aren't going to waste time on the convoluted gimmicks in their core games. 2) Why would you want to play "1080p *Cough*Not Native*cough*" on an ugly little tablet controller with a small screen? 3) Using touchscreen for stuff like inventory, and then when you switch to playing on the little screen...?? 4) They literally didn't show ANYTHING real at E3. Everything was conceptual or ps3/360 footage. Not mention a serious lack of first party games (Zelda was also conceptual, not real time). They have a year, I guess, but if they don't have anything now, what's going to launch with the system from them? 5) The last company that did the screen thing was SEGA, soooo..... lol Not to mention, half of the "core" games in that video have a release date of THIS YEAR. So by the time they release on the WiiUHeSheMeWumbo in 2012, they'll be old news anyway! Was the article THAT hard to understand? "I though hardcore gamers bought the better running port. Also the tablet options are going to be options yet the power is still going to be better. These same reasons are why the vita will not sell at all" First of all, can I get this translated into English? Second of all, Nintendo said that the WiiU will be "on par" with the ps3/360 and they didn't show anything real time other than that ugly tech demo with the bird. So, WiiU is NOT necessarily stronger than the Ps3/360. And what does this have to do with Vita? Its competition is the *3DS*. If you think power is the deciding factor here, then Vita is obviously at an advantage.....not to mention its for the same price and has WAYYYY superior control options.
"Zelda was also conceptual, not real time" Zelda was real time, you have control over lighting and camera angles, cant do that with a video.
100% agree bro bubbles for SilentNegot....
1) Big time devs/pubs aren't going to waste time on the convoluted gimmicks in their core games. so i guess EA, UBI, irrational, THQ arn't big time devs taht are already on board......and the dreamcast was one of the best systems you sir are a troll everyone who played it at e3 is loving it
So whats whats the problem if some of the games will be years late... did you miss the part of the Nintendo presentation in which you had a new luigi's mansion, brawl, Mario, I'm sure pikmin will also be in the works as well as kirby. They announced plenty of core games for the new console. Furthermore, I didn't see any ps3 users complaining when Mass Effect came to the ps3 a year later. Oh yeah they were all gloating "we got your exclusive LOOOOOOOOOL". Same goes for 360 owners no of you including myself has a problem playing the witcher 2 six months after its release. Put a lid in it. No one knows the exact specs yet, or what the new games will be like and everyone is immediately ohhhh noooo ninty sucks they should go the way of SEGA then i can play mario on my ps3/360.
How is this conceptual and not real time? http://www.youtube.com/watc...
This article goes in...
The writer is a complete idiot.
Behold... Sony's Home Share
this guy is clueless and has no idea of the concept and what it will achieve!!
Seriously who in the hell approves these articles??? Angry 360 fanboys cuz they aren't happy enough that Halo the end of the start of the beginning which is really the end of the last trilogy but the beginning of the new trilogy..... Or is it Sony fanboys, ohh cool nice tv and pretty cool handheld. Don't be a douche bag saying that nintendo have to drop out of the console race. Yes everyone should drop out and bow down to the might of SONY. LOOL business wise the wii kicked the living crap out of everyone. Gaming wise not really, some really nice games but it lacked. This is a step in the right direction. The potential this remote is huge gaming wise but with that camera it's also getting into Apples market of the iPad. I for one give a round of applause to Nintendo for being different. Sure Mario and zelda and kirby isn't "harcore" and its "milked" games are of great quality and let's face it because you grew up doesn't mean Mario has to. Sure it would be nice to see another type of story other than bowser taking the princess but you know what. Why re-invent the wheel. This guy is just ridiculous hater. Everyone also laughed at the wii myself included but i bought one and its gathered a little bit of dust but my sis plays on it more than i do. Hell my 360 was getting dusty if it wasn't for MK. Everyone else that says ohhhh Sony and MS will have something to just completely raped this graphically. WOW i'm surprised by the number that are allegedly working for those two giants. No one knows what the next consoles from those two will be, however, with the Wii U in the market I highly doubt that they will wait until 2014 to release a new console.
I agree this is a trash article and the only way I can see it being approved is by a multiple account holder or fanboy's.
so the article is trash? came straight to comments because it seemed like it would be bad. still so little is know i am not sure how anyone could say Nintendo is ripping you off.
The article is a rant about being disappointed and questioning Nintendo's motives and direction.
"This is a step in the right direction.The potential this remote is huge gamingwise but with that camera it's also getting into Apples market of the iPad." Well said ..... Couldn't agree more. I think the WiiU is so innovative that I'm actually hoping MS swallows their pride and copies them for their next gen console. Because up until now, i always believed the 360 controller was the best.... Not anymore.
Stock holders are losing faith even.... http://www.joystiq.com/2011... I hope for gaming sake, if they do go under (doubtful) they stay a 3rd party software developer (aka Sega). I would love to see Mario on PS3/360
Good then let them. You should buy some because a new 2d Mario, smash etc will repeat the same sales. You will see a higher price yet the price drop will have a way bigger impact. Plus the markets are unified again. Stocks are fools gold anyway.
Lol... Nintendo going under??!? You can't be serious.
Nintendo going under eh? Its not like they made any money with the wii, oh wait.
Honestly guys I've been a Nintendo fan for years and this was my first glance opinion, I'll be following it up later tonight with another article now that it's been given time to settle.
1. We don't know the specs. 2. We don't know the price 3. We haven't see exactly what this system is able to bring to the table. Therefore its to early to make Nintendo doom articles. Its typical Nin doing their own thing which i do admire but this time it looks like they have the horsepower as well which is what i am happy about. It looks interesting.
I think the only way nintendo will win with the wiiu is to price it reasonable, $300 or less.
I can't tell a big Nintendo fan what to think, I like Nintendo also, only the Wii made me stray away for a minute. I think Nintendo's best anouncement is the fact the will have 3rd Party support, besides the fact that the controller is cool feature wise. I agree with the "Rush" point that you made I thought this from the get go. I thought Sony and Microsoft Might have really advanced tech by the time they release their consoles, and that could possibly leave Nintendo behind Next gen also in the Harcore sense. But they showed initiative and promised focus on 3rd party so, that's a good sign.
Yeah, Nintendo did pull the right stunt in making a push for third party support and being able to run alongside xbox and ps3, but the problem is that they showed this off before having anything of their won to show on it and it's still way too late in the game.
Feature wise a power is not going to get them too far. Ms is going the cable tv route and Sony still thinks we want movie games. Nintendo is actually giving us stuff to play with. The controller actually feels fine just like a Sony psp or vita actually. Another thing is your gonna see a lot of 60fps games on this thing. This was a teaser reveal. Stylus support like a $1000 wacom. Full motion plus triangulation with camera support. Means way better than the move accuracy. Interactive screen on screen game play. Virtual windowed gaming. One step away from vr yet in your hands. Metal gear should rock on here. These features are not gimmicks because they actually work.
Wii all know Wii is Wiiiiieey too Wiiik compared to other consoles Wiiiiiiiiiiiiii!!
thats what everyne needs to know and dont buy that sh**
haha im guessing you have the console and a full library of games at your house? i mean how are people coming up with these assumptions? we havent even been shown any true games yet. at least be a little subjective and open minded instead of making a fool out of yourself.
Good observation HuGi, I bet you've owned one for a couple years now and know personally what it can and can't do.
I'm one of the 12 people in the world that never had a Wii. I didnt think it would sell like hotcakes for years and take a commanding lead this console gen, so I guess i'm terrible at predicting how WiiU will do. I actually thought the trailer for it offered some interesting possibilites. Seeing as there are several large and unanswered questions about it (like how much is it???), any predictions on how it will do is premature.
next gen haha is more like current gen after 7 years 360 and ps3 6 years in the market wii u f-u i hope they flop big time if not ms and sony will go the same way and if that happens i just dont care about gaming again yes grafix part of the wow and .. uncharted with out the grafix is jut on average game sorry but like it or not is true
I thought they fell already lol. How many times can a company fall?
man i love all the hate on wii u!please keep hating on wii U cause this is what happened with wii people somehow are so stupid they get confused with wii and now somehow the same people are to stupid to understand wii U even though they clearly tolds about it at the conference and i knew exactly what they were talking about and what they want to do after there show was over. so by trash talking everyone will keep the buzz going all year until it comes out the haters will help it sell cause there will tons of we hate wii U articles and tons of wii love wii U articles everyday keeping the buzz going for everyone!!!!see this don't happen alot for sony or microsoft cause nintendo fans don't write i hate sony stuff or microsoft on blogs websites or just comment post!but everyone who loves or hates nintendo writes about it and keeps there system names good or bad in the spotlight and any press is good press keeping the systems on everyones mind good or bad helping it sell so thank you!!! and nintendo all ready confirmed you can use the classic controller pro which feels great for regular games and it works with the regular classic controller and the wii remote with and without motion plus and the nunchuk on there new wii U games!so for example for bioshock infinite you could play with the tablet controller or the wii remote plus with nunchuk,or if you want a old style option you can play with just a classic controller pro which is a great controller! so for the people worried about playing core games in a new way you don't have to!!so before you write a article like this or a bad comment maybe you should look up the facts first. i know what a concept right?!!
I don't think the Wii U will fail. I have a feeling the casuals might eat up this "tablet controller" gimmick thing. Who knows. If Nintendo can somehow create the original Wii hype, then they will sell a ton. I just don't see Ninty capturing much of the hardcore if their console is just on par with ps3 or 360 since PS4 and 720 will blow it away in specs.
Not sure why people have the need to call it a gimmick as if its a bad thing. I actually love the DS like stup where the inventory could always be open with quick selection( touch screen) this thing is more than welcome.
Technically, it is a gimmick. A gimmick is something interesting that draws attention. It's not necessarily a bad thing, but it's used as a derogatory word nowadays.
Lol go to Joystiq. The difference between the crowds is hillarious. It's more openly accepted there~
"another downside to this is that big third party developers do not what to build two games," I guess Vita is screwed than, since the Ps3 Doesn't have a touch screen. oh wait... this article is dumb. If this is true, a few statements can be applied to both Vita & Wiiu. Vita is getting SFxT with a bonus character. I'm surprised it hasn't been announced for the 3ds or Wiiu yet.
"I don’t know much on the development side of games but surely that means that anyone making a game for the XBOX 360 who then wants to put it on the Wii U will have to fu<k with it a lot in order to have Wii U only capabilities, something a major company wont see an interest in doing " Wow, this was approved. "I don’t know much on the development side of games" then stfu.
Aha, someone should say to the person who said that, that "The Wii U has full compatibility with every Wii accessory. You can easily play Battlefield 3 on the U with a Wii Classic Controller if u hate the table so much, problem solved."
How could anyone bash the Wii U for being bad just yet? Why do all these gamers take everything for the negative? For example, Why are people thinking that the Wii U graphics will be worse than an Xbox 360 or PS3 just because they showed footage from the two consoles? Why is it so impossible for the Wii U to have good graphics? Maybe Nintendo decided to brighten up and have good graphics. I doubt the Wii U is going to bring down the Nintendo franchise. Seriously.
i can see where the writer is coming from though. my initial reaction to wiiu was 'this is so shit' followed by very strong feelings of disappointment.. almost despair. but now i am starting to see the possibility. i think its such a new territory nintendo are walking in, that it is scary... a bit like the original wii. it will take some time to come around to the idea. personally, i feel nintendo did a bad job at the unveiling because they didnt show off the consoles full potential. they mostly showed wii sports looking games. why they did this, i dont know. but it made my excitement sink faster than the titanic. they really need to show game, next gen games running on wiiu, to sell it to the so called hardcore crowd.
They really need to stop posting article like this. It's like they hate everything bout Nintendo Press Conference. I actually enjoy their conference their system is IN HD. And a new innovative way to play. I like the idea that you can still play your game on the controller touch screen and someone else watches the TV also wifi Video call which is cool. But these guys keeps popping out writing bout crap any way they want makes me SICK to my stomach.
Okay, when are people going to start to realize the difference between gimmicks and innovation.
