IGN: Nintendo Prepares for Wii U

IGN: The challenges of software development and a system launch.

The arrival of Wii U marks a new era for Nintendo. That's the message Nintendo president Satoru Iwata has been stressing for months, and in his company's most recent meeting with investors, he emphasized it again.

The story is too old to be commented.

talk talk talk. where are the games? no one can tell me except for flipping hope. after what happened with the wii and its forced and bad motion controls in games its not needed, OCEAN OF APATHY for nintendo till i see something to get excited about. its been 9 months since reveal and if this were any other game company people would be boiling their pots. im going by the companies track record as of 10 years ago. nintendo - no games for core but mass rubbish for casuals. microsoft- a lot of games for core and hardcore in the beginning but the supply falls off. sony - barrage of games for the core and hardcore with a few mix of casual. to each his own

i dont want a sales station or a talk station, i want a PlayStaion.

For the past few weeks i have seen you always moan bla bla bla on if you dont like it dont post. As a true gamer i love all games on different consoles like dreamcast had shenmue etc. You are a true fan boy or girl.

Now on topic i think wii u will have some amazing games. I cant wait to try out pokemon with the new controller like how it was for the ds touch screen on the bottom and on the top screen thats what there trying to do hear

I just go where theres good games and nintendo always has had good games so im not worried about them.Sony has had good games microsoft well thats a little bit different. They had good games coming out at the beginning of the gen but just started mainly relying on third party

------------------------------ ------

you call me a fangirl because i speak the truth which you cant handle and then in another breath you prove my point in you "thinking that the wii u will have amazing games"

as i was saying, everything about the wii u are all blind faith and guesses with no proof of anything because nintendo havent shown anything. most info about the wii u are all predictions and hope by mostly fans.i like video games also but i wont ignore blatant truth that is clear for a sane person to see. nintendo doesnt care about the hardcore or core gamers and thats why they barely had games for them. the casuals are not buying the wii anymore like one time and hardcore thinks its rubbish so nintendo is pushing rhetoric about them supporting hardcore gamers by showing videos of games from xbox and ps3. they havent shown anything for the core running from a wii u so all one have to deduce from previous actions is that the wii u will always cater more for casuals and children.to each his own. ps3 is the best gaming console because they support hardcore and casuals but its not the best gaming platform. the pc is and its my platform of choice because of how powerful and versatile it is

And here you go again. Are you mad because the Wii U looks better then your Sony product or are you just threatened by Nintendo now?

@Colwyn
I will be sure to keep a close eye on PS because I think you are over analyzing again. but you are right, to each its own.
It's like I told my bro, if we swapped consoles I would go crazy. I don't like much on 360, but thats my preference, and PS3 would be the closest to fitting all my gamer needs, but I need my Wii for the quirky games, Nintendo Franchises, and I love the Miis and animal crossing.

so you are right to each its own. last gen i was all on PS2 more than my Cube though, because I was addicted to DMC 3, but I never just gave a blind eye to the other consoles.

admittedly I am a Nintendo fan (heck, I'm wearing a Yoshi shirt right now), but I'm still getting a PSVita when it comes out so I can play uncharted.

IGN is the website that predicted that the Wii would be, at best, a "niche system." They also predicted the DS would fail and be replaced by a portable GameCube. Their opinions on anything related to Nintendo mean nothing to me, and the same should go for any serious Nintendo fan.

Shok2120d ago

Read the article bro. 95% of the article is quotes from Iwata.

Wii U looks really interesting. Day one purchase.

Pushagree2120d ago

Wii U is another underpowered gimmick that will bend over for the casuals and screw over any hardcore nintendo fan that buys it. Nintendo needs to abandon the wii name and release Gamecube 2.

AWBrawler2120d ago

The same gamecube that you "Hardcore" abandoned??

deno2119d ago

I can't disagree with that my friend. A second gamecube would be epic.

Allowen2120d ago

It should not be considered an underpower gimmick this time around because if the rumors are true the next Xbox will only be 20% more powerfull.

What it means :
Multiplataform/ 3rd party games will be avaiable for the WiiU+ Xbox720+ PS4.
So this time around who will hold back the potential of the 3rd party games will no longer be Microsoft's hardware but Nintendo.

We don t know much about PS4 and the Xbox720 but right now if I was going to get a game such GTAV to play on one of the systems I would pick it for the WiiU.
Imagine playing GTAV on the screem of your WiiU controller almost any where around your house.

I'm probably going to stick with my PS3 for the next year. It still has a lot of juice from the exclusives. Then on to Ps4 or whatever.
