Someone should really ask Nintendo why the revolutionary wiimote isn't the default controller of the Wii u? Someone should also ask why my mobile phone is more powerful than a Wii u before its even out

PopRocks3594095d ago

Why would the default controller on the Wii U be the Wii remote? Controllers always change from generation to generation, even Sony's. Look at the SIXAXIS controller.

@Hatsune-Miku Name me one mobile device thats more powerful than a wii u. Wii u has a gig of ram, its clock speeds and architecture out-competes any CPU on a mobile device (mobile device CPU's are less than 2GHz). You realize how small that is? Plus, no mobile device GPU comes even close to doing 1080P on a full 3d game (zombieU). Besides, if you say that, than the ps3 and 360 are complete and utter shit compared to mobile device specs which isn't even true. Btw, if you think 2-3 year old tech is outdated, compare it to current gen consoles. Its literally a good 3-4 times stronger and that justify's nextgen. All your seeing is ports so you can't make a comparison now, give it a year and you'll see just how much stronger the wii u is. It already surpassed ps3,360,mobile devices with 1080p.

I agree. It really wasn't funny.

Pushagree4096d ago

Satire is clearly not his strong suit.

Typical Nintendo fanboy "Y WE ALWAYS B DA VICTIMS?" bullshit.

PopRocks3594095d ago

Because that only ever happens with Nintendo fans. /s

Don't be so smug. Sony fanboys and Microsoft fanboys do the same thing, if not more so.

Xperia_ion4096d ago

You know they're Nintendo fans who only play Nintendo products Iwata, just saying.

This can be wrote about Nintendo fangirls as well. Ask the dude who wrote that those exact same questions except change Sony for Nintendo.

"I understand you only play games published on Nintendo consoles and as such have never enjoyed the intergalactic joy of Uncharted 2, the storytelling and Brutal action of God Of War 3 or the tender caress of a woman. Why is this?"

Well Nintendo make great games for the kids and the 35 year old man child in me loves playing games that have no blood, no violence or swear words in them and pink art directive games like Kirbys epic yarn just bring out my feminine side.

Also I have yet to feel the warm moisture between a womans thighs on the tip of my nob because I can't seem to get a woman past my Nintendo boxers, Mario Bedcovers and the Luigi wallpaper in my room.

"Evidently, she doesn’t let you play Mario Teaches Typing either. [Laughs]"

Thats because my mommy only buys me one different type of Mario game a year and considering theres about 50 different mario games out there I'll be 70 years old before I collect them all.

I love stereotyping the stereotypes out there.

Why do I play Sony games? I don't know, maybe I like ripping someones head off or bashing in their face until their blood has covered my eyes so much that I can't see ike in GOW3.

Or maybe I like sneaking up behind someone and slitting their throat or pushing my thumps through their eyes like in KZ3.

Or maybe I like playing beautiful games that tell a story brilliantly like in UC2.

Or maybe I like the variety Sony brings like how they make original superhero games like Infamous, let developers take risks with games like Heavy Rain and Beyond or how they don't just stick with 2 or 3 different genres but spread out to them all.

XD If this doesn't get a bubble for being funny Idk what will. If you're going to roast do it right.

Good to see you haven't stooped to using strawmen to have one sided arguments as a means of getting hits.

Why PlayStation and Xbox fanboys fight. Nintendo keeps on killing it in sales. Will we see the Switch 2 next year? They are forecasting increases in sales next quarter.

MrNinosan25d ago

Xbox and Playstation is not in the same gaming space as Nintendo.

It's like comparing Sportscars with Familycars.
Why would the fans of sportcars care about the families.

Also Nintendo Switch is covering both Handheld and Home Console nowadays, instead of 2 seperate, which is great for all the Nintendo fans, but also removes the interest for gamers who seek the highest fidelity and framerate.

I am a happy owner of all platforms, but there are obvious reasons why Xbox/Playstation "fanboys" ain't talking about Nintendo.

Kneetos25d ago

Only a small subset of gamers care about high graphics and frame rate

And nintendo does occupy the same space as playstation and Xbox, because during the WiiU days this site was filled with nothing but how playstation is destroying it's competition Xbox one and WiiU, the only reason no one likes to talk about Nintendo here now is because they are winning. See why this site also doesn't talk about Japanese/Asian sales anymore unless playstation wins a week

rlow125d ago

Last I checked they are all in the same industry selling video games to customers. Device is irrelevant, they are competing for your dollars.

Neonridr25d ago (Edited 25d ago )

how are they not in the same gaming space? They all play games. They all occupy your time. Are we suggesting that the Switch isn't a gaming machine?

DarXyde25d ago

1. They are absolutely in the same gaming space. No amount of mental revision changes that. They are fighting for your interactive entertainment dollars, nacht wahr?

2. So you don't think PlayStation or Xbox are attempting to break into the portable market more in the future with cloud streaming or even Portal? That seems a bit reductive.

3. Whatever you think about their games being overrated, Tears of the Kingdom and Super Mario Bros Wonder have been outstanding—Wonder is my personal GOTY, and I'm primarily a PlayStation gamer. Considering those games can and likely will get nominated for GOTY along with, say, Spider-Man 2 and Starfield, it's really hard to say they're not in the same space.

Nintentional25d ago (Edited 25d ago )

Funny because that “family van” has wayyyy way way better exclusives than your “sports car.” Fire Emblem, F Zero, BotW, Pikmin, Smash Bros, Mario Odyssey and Bowser’s Fury, Splatoon, Bayonetta 2 and 3, Astral Chain, Xenoblade 1-3, SMT V, Tears of the Kingdom, Metroid Dread, Metroid Prime, Mario Kart 8, Donkey Kong Country, Kirby, Advance Wars, Mario Party, Tetris 99, and so on. You will not find anything like most of those experiences on Sony or Xbox platforms. And it’s not like the games are ugly, they still look gorgeous on a 4K OLED, and gameplay wise, they’re head and shoulders above the competition.

If the current woefully underpowered Switch slaughtered the competition this much, it’s game over when Switch 2 comes out 👌🏼😌

“Why PlayStation and Xbox fanboys fight.”

I’m always puzzled by these comparisons. Nintendo’s handheld only has about 30% overlap with the home console market. The Switch Lite can’t even connect to TVs. If we really want to compare disparate ecosystems, Apple makes more on games than Sony, Nintendo, and Microsoft combined. So let’s leave these market segments to themselves.

repsahj25d ago

My main platform is PS5, but I am so excited for Switch 2 next year! I still play my switch every day.

jznrpg25d ago

You are forgetting Nintendo wasn’t doing very well before the Switch console wise. I still consider the Switch a handheld as it has the power of a handheld so it’s in a different category in a way. I like my Switch but the focus on family games makes it less appealing to me and it’s more for my kids but even they use their PS4 Pro more than the Switch. It’s nice as a secondary console to my PS5.

UltimateOwnage25d ago

You must not have been noticing during the Wii era when Nintendo sold 100+ million Wii’s. They were still doing quite well during Wii U’s short generation due to Wii and DS/3DS sales.

jznrpg25d ago

Nintendo was hurting before the Switch. They basically took their handheld business and combined it with their console business. The PS5 is selling just as well they just released at different times. If you are talking about Xbox sure that makes sense they are declining in sales but PS is as strong as ever.
