5 Reasons to Buy Multiplatform Games on Wii U

WC - With the Wii U Launch imminent and the day one line-up starting to take shape, many gamers have been left feeling disappointed by the number of multi-platform titles, ports and re released coming to the system in its first months on the market. While it’s unfortunate that a new system launching at this stage in a hardware cycle is prone to this, as a way for developers to learn how to work with the hardware, there are several ways that this could be a strength for the system.

You could just say that the Wii U has a slight edge in hardware, ergo, 3rd party games will most likely look better on the Wii U compared to PS3/360.

For the most part, the third party ports are pretty much going to be on par from what I've seen. The only developer claiming the Wii U version is best (in terms of graphics as well as gameplay) is Gearbox and the new Aliens game.

Beyond that I think it's preference. If you haven't played those games yet, then it's a great place to start. It's also good for anyone who doesn't want to pause the game to deal with weapon loadouts (Blops 2) or weapon inventory (Darksiders II).

If someone already has a PS3 and a not-so-great source of cash, then I can understand why someone would not want to bother for the time being.

Imo, it's probably the 1st party Nintendo games that will sell it not the 3rd party games, wether they are "superior" or not.

Batman arkham city already isnt up to 360 or ps3 standards. They had a couple of articles on it. Stick with ps4 or xbox infinity they are man's machines.

One reason not to do it:

the ports will be sold for a premium 60 bucks on WiiUpgrade, like Mass Effect 3, Batman

While the PS3/360 versions are in the bargain bin for just 15 to 20 bucks at that time...

PopRocks3592217d ago

Yeah, but both Batman and Mass Effect get free DLC on the disc.

But what a about Assassin´s Creed 3, Aliens Colonial Marines, and all other third party games coming out next year?

Assassin's Creed will be on PS3 and 360 15 days before the Wii U, but the games will still be at $60. I for one, want to play Assassin's Creed 3 on the Wii U.

there's not much you can do about pricing of games but there will always be places that sell them cheaper than the recommended price, like when the PS3 launched in the uk the games were £49.99 - £55.00. but i waited a few weeks and never ended up paying more than £40 maybe a bit more for special editions but for standard games majority was under £40 and i can see the same for Wii U.
also I'll be playing assassins creed 3 on Wii U, so what if we have to wait a bit they will soon enough release them day and date as the other consoles it's the same for all new consoles.

15 days doesn't warrant a price drop.

Number 1 reason not to get them on the Wii U.... Don't own one XD
