I don't think Nintendo will be having as many exclusives as the PS3 and 360 do considering there 6+ old at this point. Now the PS4 and 720 Nintendo will have a huge advantage on.

EVILDEAD3602153d ago

In a way you can't blame Nintendo.

The excitement level will quadruple when the put out the inevtable stabe of traditional exclusives.

We all will want to see what a next gen Mario 3D, Zelda, Mario Kart, and Super Smash Bros. and Metroid will be like on the Wii-U.

The problem is those will encompass the next 2 to 3 years of games.

By that time it will be repeat time starting the sequels to this years launch games. Sprinkle in a couple of Wii fit and Mario Party type games and the whole gen is already over.

The only difference is the Wii-u will finally get all the multi-plats at the same time, which was the weakness of the Wii.

Nintendo doesnt need more than ps3 and 360 they just need more than what they have to show off the wii U's abilities. Alot of wii U games are available on current gen consoles and most dont look or perform and better. I dont think that advantage over the ps4 and 720 will be that great depending if they are more powerful than the wii u to run games that it cant. If this is the case then it will end up like the wii and become another dust collector next to the T.V.

For ones i agree with pachter

bubblebeam2154d ago

Exactly what I was thinking. I checked outside to see if it was raining wasn't. I then proceeded to punch myself in the nuts, and I felt it.

For once Patcher might be right. Although it seems more like common sense TBH.

iamnsuperman2153d ago

For me they really need to diversify with their exclusives. Nintendo have been slacking a little relying on Mario, Zelda to sell systems. I want them to be more ombitious with their story telling and start introducing mature themes to their games. One way to do this without sexualising Mario......(obviously i am not saying just put sex in and thats means its mature I also mean deep flawed characters that have some realisic personality) is to release new ips.

Sony and MS wish they had any IPs with the world recognition that Nintendo characters have.

Patcher you're such a little troll, saying Nintendo needs more exclusive to beat the x360/ps3 hahahahahahahaha.

Monstar2154d ago

fucking dumb are you? what's character recognition got to do with more exclusives? Nintendo have what, Mario, zelda...and nothing but mediocre kiddy titles to demonstrate a gimmick that doesn't even offer any unique experience. Wiisports LMFAO!!!! Any serious game has yet to properly work or create any innovative controller experience. The same case will follow with the WiiU.

Patcher is spot on, only because he is a dumb shit who needed to scan forums and quote gamers to come up with that conclusion.

Bayonetta 2, The world ends with you, F zero, star fox, No more heroes, Metroid, The last story, Monster hunter tri(extremly popular in japan), Pokemon, Xeno Blade, Kid iricus, Zombi U, Donkey kong, pandora's tower, 7th Dragon, animals crossing, pikman, fire elbem, the wounderful 101 off the top of my head..

Yeah he scanned comments from 14 yo's who think that they know how the gaming market works as he prob always have.

MmaFan-Qc2153d ago (Edited 2153d ago )

donkeykong, metroid, zelda, mario, kirby and.... uh.... well, thats pretty much it, nintendo have always been surfing on their old franchises since the beggining, while i would like to see nintendo be more creative than always keeping safe with their copy/paste mario games, i have to admit that the ONLY reason i got the wii u is simply to play nintendo franchises like metroid, and like i did with the wii, i will ignore pretty much everything else on their console since the serious gaming will always happen on my ps3/pc/360 and the "real" next gen console, reggie can yap all day until he get blue in the face.... but it wont change the fact that the console isnt and wont ever be for the core gamers.

that said nintendo loyalist can go apeshit, but it still wont change a thing about it, rightnow thx to their dumb PR mr.filsaime, nintendo is like a hipster who trie to look cool in front a lumberjack..... wich is out of touch

MysticStrummer2153d ago

I'm not a fan of Nintendo's exclusive titles, but they defininitely have more than just Mario and Zelda. Nintendo fans know what they are. Nintendo will still be the place to go for kid friendly games, which may or may not make a difference this time but parents will know it. I personally couldn't care less about the Wii U, and just like the Wii I don't think of it as being "next gen", but it may very well keep Nintendo on top in terms of sales. Just like last gen, next gen won't start for me until Sony releases their next console.

krazykombatant2153d ago

A gimmick that doesn't offer a unique experience, sorry i think you're talking about the Move... Or maybe its the vita.

Hmmmmm whats that sorry i'm having too much of a blast playing on my 3DS and my kickass games.

Yes, yes, I'm sure the Vita has plenty of good exclusives. yes yes i'm sure that Sony doesn't have anything gimmicky.

Looks like i touched a nerve. Stop being such a butthurt little fanboy.

Sometimes I think Matt Stone and Trey Parker used Pachter for inspiration for Captain Hindsight. No really Pachter? All consoles NEED exclusive to differentiate themselves....... Jesus.....
