@Mr_Nuts It's funny you say that cuz I think Nintendo is being screwed both by fans, but also mixed messaging. They released the gamecube which was powerful, had a good number of third party games(was playing incredible hulk ultimate destruction just yesterday) and high attachment rates for first party games. Yet it didn't sell well (though still a success in my book). So naturally Nintendo sees this and goes "well gamers don't care about us regardless of pow...
So do they pay this guy to say the same thing about Nintendo that other people have been saying for a while? I sure hope not, because there are people with legitimate skills looking for jobs right now...
@shinmaster Though I agree with you, game quality is subjective even when considering review scores so they are not a plausible criteria for victory. Sales are quantitative and concrete.
I doubt that they will dominate. The release of Pikmin 3 in Japan shows a nice increase of sales after only 2 days out so I think anyone who says the Wii U is dead is wrong. It really just shows that when the games start rolling out the Wii U will do better. Especially by the time smash comes out. I don't think it will outsell the PS4 or Xbox1 necessarily, but I do think it will do just fine by making its money back for a profit in the long run. Though if they do drop the price a little a...
That doesn't make Brucis's point less valid. Though the higher specs of the PS4 are fact, the value you place on them is based on opinion. Some people value miiverse over the social services on PS4. Some people value off-tv play without having to buy a handheld more that the PSVita combo. So it remains the same that if you don't value the software enough to find value in the hardware, then it is your problem. It is a problem I don't have cuz I own them all.
Why are there a million articles about EA not making stuff for Nintendo? Honestly it is not worth reporting or blogging about anymore. There are other pieces of news that haven't been repeated several times to talk about.
Super smash bros. not complex? Go on youtube and see what these players can do. That is the great thing about nintendo games. There is a layer of complexity hidden under the simplicity that makes their games good for everyone. Sad gamers like you can't even make it to the complex part cuz you are simply not good enough. Think I'm wrong? Challenge me to a game of Smash and I will show you so much complexity it will change your life.
Or you could cut out the middle-man and find your new thing to whine about.
Maybe you should get really good at a game then hold local tourneys and collect the winnings? Then price wouldn't be a concern for you. That's how Smash Bros. basically funded my Wii U and future PS4.
8 disagrees for liking games and removing bias...
Regardless of it being a revolution or not, it is a fun control method with lots of potential. Also it is not for everyone. There is nothing wrong with that, and that is one of the reasons why there are several control options for you to use.
Works just fine to me. The gamepad is my controller of choice and nothing fits better in my hands, but then again I have big hands. I actually compared to my 360 and I played better on Gamepad.
Only option...pretty absurd. Don't get me wrong I am getting a PS4 for sure but to act like it is the only option is silly, and it is hard to understand how any gamer could limit themselves otherwise. There will always be fun games to play and control schemes that are not available on the PS4 and until that stops being the case I will not limit myself to one console.
"What would have made the WiiU successful was one of 2 things. Continuing to really hammer on the casual market with simple game play mechanics that were easy to understand from a TV spot (the WiiU pad isnt casual friendly at a glance). OR creating a machine that really was going to be a technical powerhouse with what was under the hood." Creating a technical powerhouse does not ensure success. In fact the weakest console seems to continue to be the most successful....
@Oh_yeah if that's how you feel you better be ready to go to that country and mock their english speaking accents to their faces.
@Natso unfortunately with g4 gone that exposure is gonna be much lower than previous years. At least spike covers some of the highlights
Actually people who already have the system won't be the one's to be disappointed. They are still showing the same games at E3, just not at a big conference. The people who would be inspired to buy a wii u after seeing the big flashy conference would be the customers lost as a result of this decision. I personally don't care if Super Smash is announced in a big conference or just shown in a direct. As long as it is coming.
@tito08 Gaming media is a bandwagon game that is all. The media was constantly calling the 3ds a failure even after the price dropped until the sales picked up. Also he said that Nintendo and the other companies all are victimized not just Nintendo. Every company has its fanboys, but you act like Nintendo gets a free ride when you had to have seen at least three doom articles just on the page where you saw this one. @truechains I agree but m...
If nobody cares why write this article. Just an excuse to use the same rhetoric.
Spider-man2 was awesome. I just hope we can get another game like the Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction. Open world hulk is just too fun.
