And yet, perfectly understandable.

I'll take a wild stab.

They'll drag existing IPs kicking and screaming onto the Wii U and that controller with the screen on it. They'll continue to milk them to death.

Then, third parties will soon give up trying because only the first party games sell, and if they make Wii U games they have to be exclusive because of that controller. As such, they stick to multiplats.

Who is to say that Sony and MS will not do the same with there next console by putting a screen on there controller?

People are to quick to jump before they know what's going to happen in the industry.

Knushwood Butt2215d ago

Maybe you're right.

Gran Turismo 6 - touch the secondary controller for... Nah

"secondary controller"
its just wifi streaming content unto a device with a screen.
Contrary to Nintendo doctrine, it isnt powered by stardust and pikmin alien technology.
It is as cheap and hollow as it feels. Cheap and hollow is Nintys gimic since the Wii in 2006 anyway.

MS have smartglass now, so really there wouldn't need to be any rational reason to add cost to the 720 by putting a screen on the controller.

mcstorm2213d ago

I really love you gamers who are blind. dident gt5 have support for using the psp as a rear view mirror? cant you watch playtv or videos on the psp/psv from your ps3.

yes msdo have smartglass now but why not put it on there next controller to?

i really do think we are going to have alot of people up in arms come sony and microsofts next e3 when they show off there next console and it only has 1gb of ramand a processor not much more powerful than the wiiu and a screen in the controller.

im not saying they will copy nintendo but look at kinect + a wiiu remote or eye toy.

i maybe wrong but i dont see both sony or ms selling there next console for more than £350 when it comes out because of the way the industry is at the moment.

It's not really milking though. There's only one or two games per franchise on each hardware. They would do well to create some new IPs to go with the old trust ones. And Nintendo always make big differences in their games between generations.

Assassins Creed, Call of Duty, Madden, Fifa and to a mild extent;Halo, are being milked. Yet, they're still great games.

Back under your bridge troll.

The western counterparts should take notice of how you should act as human.

Let me guess :)
Ninty PR 101

"We love families. We will bring you
Luigis mansion
And you will feel happy :)

Like you did with the Gamecube, as our lineup is the same with better gfx each time :)
Feel happy, fuzzy and warm inside when purchasing the Wii U :)

P.S : Ipad's and anything else that distracts you from buying a Wii U is from the devil."

One only has to use Google and see the reality of the Wii U.
Ninty are doing a routine of artificial stock constraints the UK and certain online retailers (Amazon).
The demand has dropped prematurely.
Reggie, Im sure is having sleepness nights, sad for him, the dude does need his beauty sleep.
