It's coming close to PS VITA's launch line-up

Qrphe4292d ago

How many retail Vita games were there on each US and EU launch?

SandWitch4292d ago

26 retail/PSN games if I recall correctly. Only 4 more Wii U launch games and there will be a tie between two latest systems in terms of launch titles quantity.

Why the hell are you comparing it to the launch of a handheld?

It's a good launch line-up, but not good enough to warrant a launch purchase IMO because most of those launch games are multi platform and have already been released by the time the Wii U hits the market - AC3, ME3, Darksiders 2, BO2, Arkham City to name a few.

Take out all those great multi platform games and I personally think the Wii U will be one of the worst, if not the worst launched console.

@below: it doesn't matter if they're still fairly new. Most sales come from the first 2 weeks anyway. Both games also already have their own fanbase - most buyers will come from PS3 and 360 owners.

Black Ops 2 and Assassin's Creed 3 will have been out for like than 2 weeks

Gamer19824292d ago (Edited 4292d ago )

EXACTLY Blitz! Most people already own a 360 or PS3 why would you buy a wiiU at launch? Nintendoland? ZombieU? (which is coming to ps3 btw) None of the launch title exclusives warrant putting money down on the system at launch if you already own a 360 or ps3. If you only own a wii then its a great upgrade! But i doubt theres anybody out there who only owns a wii whos getting this. I certainly dont know anybody.

@yabhero and yeah 2 weeks on 360 and ps3 most gamers wont wait 2 weeks to play them. Why you think COD sells better on 360? Because the DLC comes first to 360. Meaning people CANNOT wait for COD. They certainly aint gonna wait for WiiU version.

ConstipatedGorilla4292d ago


Who told you Zombie U is coming to the PS3? Is PS3 releasing a touchscreen gamepad that I don't know about?

inb4its2late4292d ago


I think you misunderstood. He said "Most people already own a 360 or PS3 why would you buy a wiiU at launch? Nintendoland? ZombieU?"

Meaning that why would be people buy Wii U at launch is it cause of those only 2 games.

dennett3164292d ago

Why would you discard a game for consideration just because it appears on another format? That's completely ridiculous. Good games are good games, people will buy the WiiU - just like every other Nintendo format - for the Nintendo exclusives. Now they also get the option of big name 3rd party titles in their best form to back that up...I really don't see the problem with that other than not liking the competition.
Black Ops without a lot of the braying morons you have to endure on Live? Sign me up for that!

Baka-akaB4292d ago

This is a silly argument , if i'm buying a console for a few exclusives and can have potentially better version of multi games , of course i might get them on said new console .

aquamala4292d ago

nintendo exclusives plus multi plats games that look better than PS360? why wouldn't I get one?

inb4its2late4292d ago (Edited 4292d ago )

Lol, ok sorry for relaying of what what he said. Obviously the people that disagree know he meant and what i didn't say, rofl. *Rolls eyes*

"Most people already own a 360 or PS3 why would you buy a wiiU at launch? Nintendoland? ZombieU? (which is coming to ps3 btw)"

^And that is why people are disagreeing with you... how was this not obvious to you?

aceitman4292d ago

im sorry but i wont pay more than 40$ for rabbid land . some games 60 ok but not all are worth the price .

snowman21494292d ago

This is quite possibly the best launch line up ever. BUT most of these games will have been released already, thats the problem. So other than ZombiU,rayman legends and MarioU there are no games I'm interested in...release Guild Wars 2 for it and maybe I'll buy it.
What it also needs is a mandatory achievement system and a competent online(which strangely enough they have BARELY mentioned at all)

M_Prime4292d ago

finally someone mentioned something smart...

as much as people will say that ACHIEVEMENTS are dumb, they do help. Hell i love getting them, i am actually trying to get all of them in skyrim (i am pretty close)

and the online on the wii was (to put it bluntly) BALLS.. if BALLS continues for online then no hardcore will want that system. I don't want it to be a chore to add a friend, and i don't know if friendcodes will be back but who the hell remembers that many digits.. phone numbers aren't even that long (even with area code, and area codes are the same for an area so if a friend lives a few doors down, he probably has the same area code) and friend codes had no logic to them at all

gaffyh4292d ago

About half are going to be available elsewhere, and those ones are the AAA title, the majority of the exclusives look like party games, i could be wrong though.

Only ZombiU interests me, but i can see that getting ported at some point.

I think i'll wait.

Bibmiester4291d ago

I agree zombie U is the main title that interests me at this point, and I don't know if its worth purchasing the system for ONE game..

FACTUAL evidence4291d ago

I'm actually impressed with nintendo! I haven't been interested since gamecube, but I can honestly say I'd buy 9 of the 22 launch titles. That's almost half! Even though I'm not going to get a wii U in the next 2 years(unless ZombieU is awesome) I might end up getting one soon or later.

Marceles4291d ago

Would've been awesome if Pikmin 3 was a launch title

Glad to see Rayman being there at launch. Definitely picking that up!

BringingTheThunder4292d ago

rayman legends and new super mario bros are two i'll for sure be getting

guitarded774292d ago (Edited 4292d ago )

I got New Super Mario U, Zombie U and NintendoLand (with system) on day one. I just hope there isn't a drought of releases for too long after launch. I also can't wait to see what kind of downloadable games show up on the store early.

BringingTheThunder4292d ago

i'll probably only be getting about 2 or 3 games this year because i'm spending so much already on other systems

rbailey4292d ago

Great Lineup of games thus far. Lets hope Reggie's promises that the Wii-U has a steady stream of games ends up coming true.

TrendyGamers4292d ago

As long as some 2013 multiplatform titles come to Wii U as well, it should be a good year.
