develop: "Nintendo axed a number Wii U demos at E3 due to concerns that they would fail to impress, a new report suggests."
They chose to show Xbox 360 and PS3 games rather than demos of games on the actual system? Not a good sign!
I guess though it has something to do with it being in early development. One more year should be enough time.
Well the Tekken game looked impressive, and it had to be on Wii U hardware given that they showed off the drawing feature and there's no PS3/360 version of that game
I don't think the Wii U reveal has gone well for Nintendo. I am a genuine nintendo fan, but everything I have seen so far of the Wii U is concerning to say the least. I hope they get things together soon.
when i heard that i needed to hear no more, thats good news for me ill wait till tgs or a nintendo reveal show to see the wiiu's graphics. system isnt even finalized yet.
And of course in typical N4G fashion, iamnsuperman writes a comment that makes sense and gets disagrees...
Underclocked development kits. They didn't want to give off a wrong graphical impression to the world. This is good news.
Nope it's a great sign, those are underclocked systems and just like the killzone trailer target render they could have shown some cgi or the ports. The difference is the frame rate will be better on wiiu then the graphics will flex in the second wave as studios fight over the art crown again. Mean while nintendos own games can look how ever they choose. At least it wasn't like the xbox reveal on macs lol. I'm starting to think some of your gamers are addicted to hype not gaming. It's like you want people to lie to you, crazy.
daaaam hit the nail
that is why i am not impressed because all seen were tech demos and PS3/360 footage
(If any of you would actually read/do some research) Nintendo pulled the demos because they felt that they weren't at the point of graphical fidelity to show them off. the games looked like 360/PS3 games at that time so Nintendo decided not to show them. Basically, the games didn't show how strong the hardware is, so they decided not to show them altogether.
So then what was the point of them showing that off to E3. It's already a sign that they rushed this info out way too soon.
i agree, if nintendo showed some games that looked like ps3 and not next gen n4g would have 50 articles with at least 500 degrees filled with back and fourths about wiiu this and that. nintendo didnt rush they just unlocked the door for next gen because the hdtwins want to go for 4-6 more years. imo this was just the alpha test next year they will show off the beta and then release the final version sometime after
And now we have articles slandering the reveal and saying that it is just another PS3 or Xbox 360 and it's still a generation behind. It would've been a smart move to show off stuff that was graphically on par with the current gen powerhouses and then say that the dev kits used to make those short demos were underclocked because that would mean that it'll only get better, meaning it'll be better than the powerhouse's graphics.
All will be fixed by next April lol. It's like when every one screamed no hardcorez and nintendo dropped 2d Mario and dkc2 with a ton of other games on them. It was a good reveal because now developers can talk to each other at least. Before only certain teams knew. Can you imagine what it feel like to have awesome at your office while the fans are screaming about omg 15 fps lol. 3 frigkin years! Not even final spec. Watch as Sony and ms do this or show cgi and all this is ignored. LoL. Like I said ports first then bam welcome to next gen.
Some reports stated that the devkits shipped to devs were underclocked, and that's the reason the demos were unimpressive. You don't want to display a side-by-side with an existing game series if you can't compare to games already out, in that series. Hopefully, for Nintendo, the end results will be better.
And a new generation of gamers is about to get a disappointing lesson in vaporware...
i seriously hate that picture, its not gonna fail people, it will sale on the name alone, and if they get alot of good games then it will sell even more
I seriously hate your picture.
aww that's too bad, i think you'll get over it :)
So you know that all those senior citizen homes, hospitals and mothers who play casual Wii games will buy a Wii U targeted at "core" gamers. That's impressive. What other BS do you see in that Pepsi Crystal ball?
If u didn't notice at the press confrence they showed they also were aiming towards that crowd also
nintendo fans don't worry this is going to be a great console with great hd graphics and a cool new ways to play games and a great new online system!!!and for the next year will have great 3ds/ds games to play and not many but some great wii games coming out!! its a great time to be a nintendo fan! sony fans why do you care about Wii U? when right now you got ps3 which is a great hd console right now!! with many great games.and ps vita is coming soon which looks like a great console!! and microsoft fans you also have a great hd console with great games and the best online setup so you guys should be good too. i think for the first time ever in video game history we all have great options so i can see joking with each other about the systems we like. but i don't understand why everyone attacks each other so much when we all got great games to play it makes no sense at all!!this hobby was all about relaxing and having fun what happened??
gamers got older, and lost their "Jive".
Was one of those kojima games i bet.
That's why Nintendo show the Epic demo of "Killer Freaks From Outer Space".
When you read people's comments still doubting that the "Garden" or "Zelda" demos were real graphics (yes, there are still people doing that) and saying things like "it's CGI" then later proved that those demos were not only running in real time Wii U graphics but also the people who attended E3 could interact with them... then trolls say "it looks bad" it's kind of funny... Yes... first "CGI"... something that current consoles cannot achieved then they just pretend those graphics are available in their consoles... LOL... Wii U will be next gen, no doubt about that, and third parties are happy with it like Crytek saying that the Wii U runs their CRYengine without a hitch. And the graphics capabilities is just the icing on the cake... the controller seems revolutionary in every aspect and I can't wait to get my hands on it.
The U stands for Unfinished. Anyone else get the feeling Nintendo jumped the gun "unveiling" Wii U, just because they wanted to save face with the flagging Wii market, and beat Sony and MS to the punch? Their press conference was confusing, at best...disasterous is more accurate. Only hinting at the "new console", but showing a controller that actually works with the Wii, and NOT showing any actual games for EITHER. Wii U could be a repeat of GameCube, from a commercial standpoint.
Wiiu will not be a gc because I hated almost all of nintendos first party games since the frame rate was so low. Not real tool support for making games and no one wanted to port to it because of that. The kiddy thing was a blanket statement because the dev community knew gamers would not understand. Now we are in a situation where nintendo has perfected 3d engine for almost all their franchises and the game play shines. Also we have an industry that needs 3 consoles to port to just to support development cost. Too many studios have closed. Nintendo is the only publisher that supports all types of games so far and as just dowloadable games. Thanks to them you see some 2d gems on a disk going all out. Not humped downloads. It's win for nintendo and third parties. It seems you guys forgot that with out them you barely own any 1st party hd games. I'm sure it will start out slow but once you see the line up you jump on the wagon. To bad the true up scaling will not be in there but you will get a clear render now compared to the wii. With the power they have they can easily emulate the wii lol on the wiiu.
Id rather it be done right.
maybe they're waiting for a smaller manufacturing process. If they were underclocked they were probably to hot
