im supries Kruto/or whatever his name not here doing more PR talk

"rated E for Everyone"

On topic, i like what i see.....i think this will be a great gift for my 4 year old.


DeadlyFire2659d ago

hmm. Watch sports and play at the same time. This is genius.

showtimefolks2659d ago

I hope Nintendo has learned something from xblive and really from PSN since PSN started out really slow,dull,boring lol to now where its a great service. I hope we won't have to go through the same growing pains with wii-u network but i am afraid we will just because this is N's first try into something like that for home consoles

metroid322659d ago

Well from what i see its a better start than either XboxLive or PSN going off what we know is their from day 1 ??

Love the reference at the end to Iwata and his bananas.

It sad they're just now releasing this. Also they did not mention any plans about expanding this to the 3ds. Is that idea still even alive. I just don't get it. Sony is adding new features to the vita as you saw with the 2.00 update like wirelessly transfer files between the vita and pc, email app, psplus and more. Meanwhile 3ds is just the same. No achievement system and no word of Nintendo id appearing on that system. I'm just so annoyed that people will rather support this instead of supporting a company that actually deserves it. I just don't get it.

"I'm just so annoyed that people will rather support this instead of supporting a company that actually deserves it. I just don't get it."

Wehh people are supporting Nintendo instead of Sony!
Wehh Sony deserves better!

Get over it. It's called preference. Some people prefer Nintendo over Sony, and some people prefer Sony over Nintendo. It's not that big of a deal.

Hell, there are a lot of people that support both, and even Microsoft. But I guess you never really thought of that, huh?

How about you grow up, and move on, instead of making a huge deal over stupid little things?

animegamingnerd2659d ago

why do you treat nintendo as the worst company in the industry they deserve a lot more support then EA, activsion, capcom, and square enix those companies deserve to have every game they release flop due to their business practices

FlairSomewhere2659d ago

So are you going to buy one?

What if all those things you mentioned were features?

Yeah, didn't think you would.

V0LT2659d ago

Achievements didn't exist 15-20 years ago and I have been gaming since I was 5/6yrs old.... I don't get the big deal with achievements....

MegaLagann2659d ago

How else am I going to wave my e-penis around?

guitarded772659d ago

The thing about achievements is they have become an accepted and now expected part of gaming. They add more replay value, offer gamers different ways to play a game outside of the norm, give some insight to your friend's gaming habits, give players a sense of personal achievement (like a record book of your gaming history), they are bragging rights... I could think of a dozen other positives about achievements, but you get the point. When a game comes out on all 3 systems, why would Nintendo want that game to have a feature missing that the other consoles have? Sony learned quickly the importance of achievements and implemented the system to compete with MS. We saw the excitement of MGS4 getting a trophy patch several years after launch. Just because you don't really care, doesn't mean others don't as well. I have my Wii U pre-ordered and paid for, but not having a centralized over arching achievements system is a let down... especially after Reggie said "We'll have all that" in an E3 interview with GT. I'm 35 and have been gaming for as long as I remember, but just because we didn't used to have achievements doesn't mean we don't need them now. We used to not have HD games... now we do, and I don't see anyone wanting to go backward. We used to only have a couple buttons on a controller... we used to only have joysticks and paddles (no d-pad). Innovation is good, and achievements are an innovation which have become a standard... Nintendo should recognize that, and realize that the majority of gamers want them.

Neonridr2659d ago

Sony didn't learn quickly. It took them 2 years to implement the trophy system, it didn't come out until 2008.

guitarded772659d ago (Edited 2659d ago )

@ Neonridr

It appears you're arguing the time of trophy implementation by Sony, just for the sake of argument. In reality, Sony did do it very quickly. They couldn't just say "oh, here's trophies" in one day, they had to build the system into PSN, and give developers enough time to make changes in current projects. I stand by everything in my previous comment. If someone doesn't care for achievements, fine... but there are more pros of having an achievements system then cons. I for one want an achievements system on the Wii U, and hope if becomes a mandatory implementation as Nintendo Network and Miiverse grows. Oh, and it was less than 2 years from launch and implementation of trophies.

AO1JMM2658d ago

Achievements/Trophies were not but gamers back then did fight over the highest score in most games. Just look at arcade games.

Doesnt matter how much more nintendo sells because vita & PS3 get many more 3rd party games regardless of sales.. Many more adult oriented titles as well..

This system has some cool features but its missing a lot too.. Just like the games.. It has some cool ones but its missing a lot of others (multiplats).. Ill wait til i see what orbis brings before i buy one of these..

millzy1022659d ago (Edited 2659d ago )

3da has more 3rd party games than vita and I know this for a fact as I own both systems vita line up is pretty shit but I'm happy with the few games I got on it. 3DS has 2 resi games what about vita (none)I'm getting a Wii u and ps4 as I play mutipal platforms, of your a real 'hardcore gamer' then 1 system simply isn't enough. I prefer Nintendo to Sony because there the only real games company, ms and Sony have other businesses to fall back on to make profit Nintendo doesn't. I'm not saying Sony is shit but if all 3 systems are the same whitch people expect there is no point and there should only be 1 on market. each console should have its own traits. by the way achievments are shit I've been playing games for 22 years and achievments have only been around for 7 of those. ACHIEVMENTS ARE NOT ESSENTAIL FOR GAMING, GAMES ARE ESSENTAIL FOR GAMING AS IT IS CALLED GAMING FOR A REASON.

"of your a real 'hardcore gamer' then 1 system simply isn't enough"

"if all 3 systems are the same whitch people expect there is no point and there should only be 1 on market"

your words are so wise in my opinion. If you fix your spelling then it would be true beauty to read them

WiiUalpha2659d ago

@MasterKratos, "I'm not saying Sony is shit but if all 3 systems are the same whitch people expect there is no point and there should only be 1 on market. each console should have its own traits" EACh console should have it's own traits... Funny how you missed that part at the end but then if you did what would you have to post about...

@Divine, Don't send me any more PMs begging me to leave you alone and telling me how much of a Nintendo fan you are.

Funny how when its an article about the Vita those missing games arent an issue for you. I stop pointing out your bias in every post and you go right back to it. How pathetic your life must be.

MasterCratosKong662659d ago (Edited 2659d ago )


Not quite sure what you mean... Differentiation in consoles is a good thing and that is what I was agreeing with. Wii U is doing that and I want the other 2 to do it as well. I think you may have misunderstood?

Nobody takes you seriously Mika

cleft52659d ago

On that note, I went ahead and ignored him/her. I am getting sick and tired of people who write comments without any substance to them. It's really sad that some people have nothing better to do than to blindly hate on a product/company.

eagle212659d ago

Call security if you ever see "Mika" at E3 near Mr. Iwata!!!! haha :)

Nevers0ft2659d ago

"deserves" is a very subjective word. Personally I'm never likely to spend money on a Sony product again simply because of how they behave as a company. It has nothing to do with their consoles, they seem pretty damned good imho... But as a company, they're an arrogent, deceitful, litigious bully (CD rootkits and the Geohotz case spring to mind) and I don't want any of my hard-earned money going to them.

Some pretty sweet stuff. I can't wait to get one!

cleft52659d ago

This video was great and it's good to see that the folks at Nintendo has a sense of humor. The more I see of the WiiU, the more I like the features. If Nintendo can just secure third party games than the WiiU will be incredibly successful. I won't be buying a WiiU at launch, but I will pick up a WiiU very soon.
