i dont see anything great in it yet, i see one good game (ZombiU) and i could see myself playing the Metroid Blast in Nintendo Land but thats about it and thats all im getting at launch (the premium system, ZombiU and Nintendo Land ) then i will wait to see if another game catches my attention because as of today only ZombiU has done it, of course i will be getting zelda when it releases thats a no brainer for me.

Vita had a better launch lineup.

NovusTerminus4238d ago

Everyone said the Vita's was oh so amazing, now look that them, saying it has no games. No, I am not bashing the Vita, I love mine, just saying.

I don't see anything great about the Wii U's launch, most of them are ports of games I can get without the system. Which is expected when a console comes out, I shall pick one up sometime next year, when SSB, Zelda, and B2 are shown in full and the first of those three come out... Which will most likely be B2.

I firmly agree and believe that the Nintendo Wii U entertainment system sports the greatest launch lineup in the history of the gaming spectrum. Never before have I witnessed so many AAA quality offerings touching down with the mother ship. Far too many great experiences to purchase all at once. A problem that I openly welcome.

This is one console that likely will not have a dry spell shortly after launch. Nintendo has played the cards very well as far as pretty much everything is concerned this time around. As a consumer I am honored and grateful for this achievement unlocked in the home console gaming space. Thanks to Nintendo taking a leap of faith in the name of Elite gaming and technology. The next generation is already shaping up to be one of the very best. Strengthening the Nintendo Brand name all around.

Nintendo shall always be remembered for taking gaming and innovation to the next level. Likely paving the way for future next generation consoles to come in the next couple of years.

Have a blessed day and happy gaming.

Rated E For Everyone

I love your posts man, so optimistic and a breath of fresh air on this site. I agree with you wholeheartedly. After the Nintendo Direct yesterday I went and pre-ordered my Wii U, I think it looks fun, which is something that has been lacking for me when it comes to gaming lately. I've been looking at gaming as more of a chore a lot of the time, the Wii U looks like a blast!

The launch lineup looks solid, best in history is debatable though. Its certainly one of the best in recent memory. The Xbox 360 had a pretty good launch lineup as well though.

Be careful not to overindulge in _you_ _know_ _what_, Sir.

TekoIie4238d ago (Edited 4238d ago )

When they're done with each other there'll be no reason for either of them to own a wii fit.... *wink wink*

Griffin48714238d ago (Edited 4238d ago )

I'm all for Wii U, but the lineup looks decent because of ports and exclusives, not because it's amazing. They aren't system sellers, but they're good.

Lucretia4238d ago

yeah agreed, the launch is not horrid, but its not amazing, its launching with a bunch of multiplats lol, so not sure how anyone can think its amazing.

maybe for nintendo only owning customers who dont buy ps or xbox products

Sono4214237d ago

I own a PS3 and plan on buying one. Care to explain? Am I throwing a loop into your logic? Well here i'll send you for a real spin, believe it or not I just like to enjoy games regardless of the brand. I know in this day and age it may be hard to believe but it's true. If you don't believe me go ahead and shoot me a message on PS3, name on there is the same as on here - Sono421

Nintendo's Massacre Of The 3DS And Wii U Is Finally Complete, Regrettably

Hanzala from eXputer: "The cruel hammer of Nintendo has fallen. Farewell, 3DS and Wii U, you surely brightened my life and many others; you won't be forgotten."

Xbox's Preservation Step Sets A Much-Needed Example, Especially For Nintendo

Hanzla from eXputer inquires: "If Xbox can care about preserving its games and legacy, what exactly is wrong with Nintendo, trying to kill game preservation single-handedly?"

purple1018d ago

Ahh yes the good old game preservation of saving all your games to a removable hhd on the Xbox 360, taking it round your mates house, setting up multiple tvs to
Be met with “save data corrupted, please re download”

Or how about removing 360 games
From the store
, download them now or else, and, better hope to god that save data doesn’t corrupt, or it’s lost for ever

Nice one ☝️

Zeref8d ago

It's better than what Nintendo and Playstation is doing. It might not be perfect but at least they are TRYING. Unlike the others.

DarXyde8d ago

Trying? Take off the blinders for a moment, mate.

1. A failure to preserve games is just that: a failure to preserve games. Don't try to sugarcoat it: NO ONE is doing it properly. Better than awful is nothing to write home about.

2. At the time of this comment, isn't it the case that you need an internet connection to play Xbox games even if you buy physical discs that are hardly in circulation anymore? I don't have a Series X and I can't verify, but I think that is correct. I'm fairly certain you can at least play PS5 games at version 1.0 (not much of a win really when many games require day one patches). I think Microsoft's all digital, licensing approach is by far more aggressive than anyone else's. They really try to push you to game pass where you lose your entire library by umm.... Skipping a month of payments.

I don't think anyone is doing it right whatsoever. Don't get me started on Nintendo, who goes after anyone looking to preserve their games better than they ever would with extreme litigation.

Don't be a simp for any of these companies. Get it together.

PhillyDonJawn8d ago (Edited 8d ago )

@DarX never speak on Xbox again. You lost all credibility with your internet connection comment. Smh you have 0 clue and misinformed yet speaking on something you don't no squat about.

Einhander19728d ago

What has Sony done exactly? You guys keep deflecting to Sony but I am not actually seeing any results, and ai am certain nothing that you can come up with even comes close to what Microsoft has done and what they have tried and failed to do, like tie all your disks to your account on xbone.

Microsoft removed their whole indie section when they moved to the xbone because they were going to only allow games on the service that came from a publisher, id@xbox started after xbone launched and it only exists because Sony embraced indie and Microsoft was forced to cancel their plans and reverse course.

And every single game that was part of games for windows live including disk games (I have gta 4 on disk that won't work) so hundreds of games that use that DRM no longer work unless the company themselves patched it out which of course very few did.

MrBaskerville8d ago

Not trying. Tried. they killed of the backcomp program years ago. They set something up again, but sounds like it's more of an attempt to save the current library on whatever they are planning next. With luck they save everything and more, but let's see. I could see them killing off parts of the OG xbox and 360 libraries. Can't imagine that they would allow us to play Forza 5-7 in the future.

With that said, I do like what they've done and really wish they could have done more.

shinoff21837d ago

Zeref

So killing off physical media is trying what exactly. Ms don't really give a fk if you think they do your kidding yourself.

Profchaos7d ago

They are not trying this team is established for forward compatability the team is. It interested in preserving Xbox or 360 games.

Is that why Hellblade 2 is digital only?
