Nintendo of America's Reggie Fils-Aime has said that both Wii and Wii U can "survive side by side? as long as the content is there, and as long as the way to differentiate the two is there".
They won't coexist more than two years max due to third party support already lacking on the Wii and those third party deveopers who still support the Wii now will just move on to the WiiU. It will be similar to what happened with the Wii/Gamecube and 360/Xbox
Does the WiiU even compete with the Wii? I thought it was more of a peripheral. You know, more like a new "handheld" that attaches to a Wii. That's what it looks like, at any rate.
Yeah, thanks to Nintendo's confusing unveiling of of the Wii U most people think it is a just a peripheral. In fact Wii U is a brand new Nintendo console they just spent all the time showing of the new controller/pad.
yeah, lets hope next E3, they show the console off, and not have it in the background. luckily, my local news caught this, and said it was a new console. so i guess not all hope is lost.
So the only thing we've seen is the controller? Eh...
It seems the only people that where confused where the bias press or blogs. You know we call them fanboys. Even if you though it was a hand held it would crush the vita. The wii will still sell until we get sequels of all the 10-20 million sellers on the wiiu. Another thing is most hardcore gamers will get the wiiu while kids and the lower incomes will get the wii. The thing is it's all about software. Every one can afford to make hd games.
Not DC Universe, LBP2, KZ3, MLB11, ArTonelico, Yakuza 4, SOCOM 4, inFamous 2, Tomb Raider trilogy, Prince of Persia Trilogy, or a half dozen others? If NONE of that piqued your interest, you've got some gaming issues.
Srsly Wii is already dead and Wiiu is not out yet,half of 2011 still no games Waiting for Kirby Wii,Zelda:SS and Xenoblade then throw it out the window
there are still alot of wii games coming yes there not out every 2 mins but the wii at £99 will continue to sell 4 at least 4 years from now
Even if you take into account the games NoA is NOT bringing over for the Wii, it still has a stronger future line up than the 360.
and it's still selling better than ps3/360
Agree. the Wii has been dead this entire year, unless you bought Mario Sports Mix, or the Con2. Those two are it. I have no idea how they will co-exists, unless they are talking about the fading out part. you've got about 6 months after X console is released (typically) before its done.....Unless your the Dreamcast, which got a new game this year, IIRC
I can't remember a game worth buying on the ps3 ethier. Weird but no one talks about that. All muliplats played better on the 360 right? Or maybe just the ones worth buying. It's more fun letting them stay clueless.
atleast the ps3 has multiplat games to play, all wii have is crap ATM.
Yeah just like EVERY other games console whats new?
I think there wont be many big games on the Wii after the Wii U launch. just a ton of those Wii fit/ party game types.
have there been many big releases in the past year or two. The wii hit a wall. I think nintendo's first parties are all focusing on the wii u now.
Doesn't this apply to all consoles? The only company that I know whom supports their console for so long is Sony. The PS2 is STILL getting games released for it; not many, but it's surprising.
yeah, but i can easily see Big N milking the heck out of the Wii cow until her udders implode. I'm hoping they do keep it around, and release The Last Story in NA
no ps2 games are not still being released atleast not in america but stores are still selling them
Yeah there are www (dot) gamefaqs(dot)com/ps2/releases/ region-1
Yeah what games where released on the ps2 that's worth talking about lol. You guys kill me with this support bs.
Nobody said the support was good - its trash now, of course. But that doesn't mean that it ISN'T getting support. You're free to be as ignorant to the fact as you'd like to.
Trash support is not support. Your words not mine but is that what you are expecting for the ps3 trash support. The new uncharted after 3 are going on the ps4 if it ever comes out. Oh yeah no one cares about the future ps3 line up. Oh yeah what ever happened to the year when ps3 caught up?
The wii truly saved nintendo's ass after the massive financial loss they suffered from the game cube.Now that nintendo is bringing out a new console to stay current with the times let's hope nintendo bring out a bunch of new major exclusives to really kick things off right in 2012 because nintendo has a solid window of open opportunity & should take advantage of it well it lasts before micrsoft & sony enter the next console generation & snatch up a portion of the users & sales margin or nintendo could find themselves dead last.
are you on crack? Its common knowledge that the Gamecube profited a lot of money for Nintendo. They somehow made more money from the Cube than Sony made from the PS2 and MS made from the Xbox
Well, the Wii better live through the Wii U because I am not buying a whole bunch of 60 to 70 dollar games for the Wii U
north american wii owners have nothing too look forward to but SS, hell kirby doesn't have a release date yet.
The wii will probably still get some support but I doubt anything but shovelware and casual games. The Wii U will be the focus for the core market and AAA titles imo.
Long-time Nintendo fan, but let's be realistic now: The Wii can't exist in its CURRENT state. How's it supposed to exist side-by-side with the Wii U? Almost no worthwhile games have come out for the Wii in ages, and it'll be a while before we see any more. ESPECIALLY for us folks in North America. At least Europe is getting a bit of love with Xenoblade, and possibly even Last Story and Pandora. NOA's treatment of Wii games has really smashed my views of Nintendo right now. I'm really not too optimistic about the Wii U.
