too much talking, where are the amazing exclusive games? i havent seen a game that make me go buy the system on launch date, stop the talking and show me the games.

PopRocks3593856d ago

They're not finished yet? Game development isn't snapping your fingers and having a game ready for the public, you know.

remanutd553856d ago (Edited 3856d ago )

where are the games? wii u have a bunch of current games, casual crap games and one decent Zombie game, if its so easy to develop for and doesnt have many limitations why the launch line up is looking mediocre? where are the games i ask again? too much talking and no actions

Tell that to the gaming media about the Playstation Vita.

Though i do agree with remanutd55 that it would be nice to see Nintendo show 'new games' rather than ports from year old games & more Super Mario Bros. Sure they showed that Lego game & Zombie U but i do not think that is enough to quell the doubters.

Right now it is all talk & that gets you no where with fans.

“We have a few Wii U devkits since quite some time. We even almost finished our first Wii U game. The kits exceeded our expectations in every way and we still learn how to get the best performance out of it. A good thing about Wii U is that it’s very easy to develop for. You don’t have so many limitations like on the other current gen platforms. For us the Wii U is the perfect platform with enough horsepower for many years to come. I think we currently only tapped 20% of its potential and our first game already looks and plays brilliant.”

“Digital is of course the future. We love that Nintendo doesn’t really put restrictions on the developers what they want to do in the eShop. For us as a small developer it’s like a dream come true to be able to design whatever we want and to bring it quickly to the players.”

PS3 and x360 also had tons of PS2/GC/xbox1 games at launch (COD, Tony Hawk etc), so why are you complaining about "current games"? PS3 also had only one exclusive at launch (Resistance).

WiiU will have at least 4 good exclusive games:
-Pikmin 3 (looks fun)
-New Super Mario Bros U (I don't know if I will buy it but I am sure lots of people will buy it)
-ZombiU (I like the concept and I will buy it)
-Rayman Legends (multiplayer looks REALLY fun and I am buying it day one)

There are also some other exclusive games that I am not sure if it will be good:
-Lego City
-Scribblenauts Unlimited (WiiU version is different from the 3DS version)

There you have it, much more exclusive games than PS3 had at launch.

Ports from current gen(like Batman, Mass Effect etc) are something normal, even PS3/x360 had PS2/GC/xbox1 games at launch (as I said before) and you are ignoring that.

Games like Assassin's Creed 3, Darksiders 2 and some other games are good to show the WiiU is getting some third party support. You guys complained about the lack of suppor and now you will complain about the support? What's the logic?

Resume: Your post is just trolling and you don't even know what you are talking about. You just want to complain for no reason about a console that is not even out yet.

And people complain about Mario, but fans love it, just like Uncharted/Gears of War/God of War/Halo fans will want more, it doesn't really matter if you call it "rehash", "milk" "more old mario" or something like that.

Well, let's see.

Pikmin 3, Project P-100, ZombiU, Rayman Legends, Tekken Tag 2, Project Cars, Darksiders II, Aliens Colonial Marines and a version of Ninja Gaiden III that supposedly doesn't suck to name a few. And they are all in the launch window.

Apart from Ninja Gaiden all of these games are new.

This is proof that the Wii u is weak with hardware power comparable to Xbox and ps3.

The console is said to be very easy to develop for so since its so easy then devs should be able to utilize its strength when making ports of games or exclusives. The Wii u haven't shown anything above games already available this gen technology -wise. It is said that it has worse graphics in some games than Xbox and ps3

DA_SHREDDER3856d ago

A nintendo console putting out 360 graphics? Where do I sign my liver to?

Ck1x3856d ago

And from this article you get that the WiiU is weak in comparison to the 360&PS3, even though he clearly states that WiiU doesn't have many limitations compared to current consoles! That's some reading comprehension on your part for sure...

shutUpAndTakeMyMoney3856d ago (Edited 3856d ago )

This is great! Xbox 720 & wiiU will most likely make sure PC ports will not be messed up performance wise. Not sure what sony hardware will be like. I doubt they want to be the weird kid sitting in the corner by him self.

I also think wiiU will better for mmos than ps3 or 360.

r213856d ago

will it have region lock like the 3DS?

VanillaBear3856d ago

"Doesn’t Have Many Limitations"

Except running the Unreal Engine 4...something I'm betting third party developers will probably use next gen

PopRocks3593856d ago

You're aware Epic has not yet confirmed what consoles can or cannot use Unreal 4, right?

VanillaBear3856d ago

I'm pretty sure Epic will want consoles to use UE4.

LOTS of developers have used UE3 this gen, they wouldn't want the UE4 to miss out next gen. When a lot of developers are most likely to use it.

victorGma213856d ago

They confirmed that even smartphones will run the engine. Stop making stupid assumptions (that make yourself look stupid) and let's wait for the announcement of the platforms.

Sono4213855d ago

VanillaBear, I feel like your grasping for straws now...

samtheseed3856d ago

Lol, what'd you know about UE4? Stop trolling round spreading your unfounded bullshit. It's only been announced for PC so far, but they have said it's designed to be scalable, like UE3... which runs on figging mobile devices... moron.

"Except running UE4" lol, shut up and sit the fuck down.

Ck1x3856d ago

@VanillaBear: I know you may not understand how graphics engines work, but please stop inclining that WiiU won't get the Unreal 4 engine because of less horse-power. That's not the determining factors here! If the WiiU utilizes a GPU that is up to date on current graphic features and abilities it can run UE4, it's as simple as that. Now that being said, will the 720 & PS4 run it better? Most likely... But lets not pretend that it's a horse-power issue when it comes to wether or not UE4 is on the WiiU.

Fishy Fingers3856d ago (Edited 3856d ago )

What does this dude know, just read the comments of some die hard Sony/MS fans on N4G that have no experience or knowledge of the system. They're the ones in the know right.
