Nintendo's Scott Moffitt feels there that the Wii has "a lot of life left in it" and will continue to support the system even after the Wii U launches.
Of course they will, it will be super cheap. It will be like how Sony supported the PS2 after the PS3 launched
LOL. Oh they're serious... Well I guess all they have to do is continue with what they're doing now, because it can't get any worse. 1 or 3 good releases a year seems like a wanning consonle to me.
Well.. let's be entirely honest with ourselves here. The painful majority of those 90+ million 'consumers' are dusty shelves, dark closets and Gamestop drawers.
Stop talking non-sense! ...... My grandmothers tv stand is not dusty...... Lol
I am not trying to troll here but the support from Nintendo for the Wii in the recent years hasn't been great. I assume he means a wii version for early Wii U games will come out.
Two disagrees so far when you speak the truth. The support for the Wii has been the worst Nintendo software support since the N64. Sure Skyward Sword is fantastic, but why they went so long without any worthwhile titles is beyond me.
I disagreed becase the wii has gotten huge games the past year or two. New DK New SMB Skyward Sword Xenoblade Last Story Pandoras Tower Kirbys Epic Yarn New Kirby (forgot the name but its sick) Other M Conduit 2 Epic Mickey SM Galaxy 2 Sin and Punishment 2 MH Tri Tatsunoko vs Capcom The only problem with any of these games is that they are not in HD. If they were ps3/360 graphics the wii wouldve had better lineups than both hd consoles. As it is most gamers overlook these titles and the wii altogether, i was one of them.
I need to get Xenoblade the last Story and Tales of Graces. to end my wii career.
Just like they kept supporting the Nintendo DS (localizing titles they glossed over) after the 3DS launch? >.>
why not? DS had some great titles in 2011 too, like ghost trick, kirby mass attack, inazuma eleven localisation, aliens infestation and some others, inazuma 2 eng is coming, still it's not so bad.. on wii we are getting; last story, rhythm heaven wii, pandoras tower, mario party 9 maybe some new aren't announced.... but hey,people, please tell me if you know... WHERE THE HELL IS...THE GRINDER ON Wii?! ;)
I want The Grinder, it looks like a great game. I hope it doesn't get cancelled. It can always become a downloadible game on the Wii U
High voltage software laid off a bunch of employees and lost money on both Conduit games. There is a rumor the grinder was cancelled or switched next gen.
I was referring to Nintendo-only published games. And Kirby was the only real important worldwide release as IE was Europe-only. Plus, both of those games were known to some degree before the 3DS's release. Post-3DS, no real announcements to be heard of.
That's not going to happen.
I'm sorry, I loved my wii, and it had terrific first party and even some third party games (MadWorld and NMH) but after the huge year of 2010 (Super Mario Galaxy 2, Metroid Other M, Donkey Kong Country Returns, Kirby's Epic Yarn, NMH 2, etc.) the wii was left for dead in 2011 (especially in North America). The best Nintendo can do is support the Wii until next summer and release the Wii U. Xenoblade in April, Mario party 9 are the only big hitters in 2012. Hopefully the last story and Pandoras tower are released in Q2. Nintendo is repeating a pattern. The N64 was dead in 2001 until the GameCube was released. The GameCube died in 2006 until the Wii was released. Obviously Nintendo isn't going to come out and flatly say "no, once the wii u comes out we will not be supporting the wii anymore" that would be suicide. They have over 90 million consumers to please and they want them to transistion to wii u, abandoning them will not do well for the companies image.
What they ought to do for those Wii users is send them messages through the Wii telling them they can upgrade to a newer, better experience. Sometimes raising awareness is all it takes.
that would imply that they are still supporting it... which aside from Zelda, they are not. Sure 3rd parties will continue to support it for quite a while with the party and family games, but i honestly just want Nintendo to focus on the WiiU, there is no more reason for them to keep making games on the Wii, the change in generation is a year overdue
they need 3rd party support.
keep supporting???? Didn't they allready stopped supporting??
