Game delays make Wii U’s post-launch lineup look even worse

Arstechnica- Back when Nintendo first announced its "launch window" lineup of games that would be available for the Wii U by March 31, we were decidedly unimpressed. The list was filled with warmed-over ports and uninspiring shovelware. Today however, that list got even less impressive, as Nintendo announced a few of the most anticipated games for the system won't be out until April at the earliest.

Monster Hunter 3 is going to be a completely new experience than playing it on your 3DS. It will be a much grander game in style, and has a lot more Monsters in the game.

Erimgard2104d ago

I think he was actually calling 3U the same as Tri on Wii, which is not even close to the same.

miyamoto2104d ago

its called the dry spell...wait for the rain fall

Venox20082104d ago

better delayed game than broken

Dr_Salvitor2104d ago

Agreed i was actually happy when pikmin 3 got delayed, but you always only hear the complaining about it -_-

corrus2103d ago

better delayed game than broken very smart

Venox20082103d ago (Edited 2103d ago )

well Ninty always tries to perfect its games, no matter how long will it take (sure sometimes some bugs still slip, like Zelda:SS, but at least they released save game tool later) still Ninty FTW, or maybe time to time they think some new ideas and implement them to fully perfect game, who knows.. still we'll get Pikmin, not too long to wait :)

crazy_man2103d ago

The best things are worth waiting for.

Killzoner992103d ago

LOl , it's because developers are dropping support for this POS. Anyone can see the writing on the wall , Nintendo botched this console BIG TIME. A PS3/Vita combo can do anything the WiiU can do , with better games too. Sorry Nintendo fanboys but your favorite company is circling the drain.

Buff10442103d ago

How many people realistically go with the PS3/Vits combo in favor of the Wii U? I keep hearing this combo claim, and it just doesn't make sense from a mass market perspective. Sony's not even selling enough Vitas right now to make this work, nor are there enough games that come close to replicating what the Wii U can do in tandem with its controller.

iamnsuperman2103d ago (Edited 2103d ago )

It makes more sense if it was cheaper as it is just too expensive and Sony need to make remote play for all games/ make cross play for all games. Essentially the Vita is just more portable than the Wii U controller but you pay for that in price and Sony has the features but hasn't (for some reason) implemented them in greater numbers. If they sort both these issues it will make more sense

solidt122103d ago

PS3/Vita combo does not even compare to what the Wii U is. Its a stupid comparison and I wish people would just stop it. Every Wii U comes with a controller that is designed for that system. The Vita is its own system that CAN work with the PS3 and it will work with the PS4 more than likely too but do you seriously think developers are going to add Vita compatiblity to every PS3 game? Have they at this point? There you go. There are 72+ Million PS3's out there and 4 Million Vita's. What would be the point? Don't get me wrong I wish Sony and all third parties would add Vita functionality to all PS3/Vita games but it ain't gonna happen because there is no market for it. In the Wii U case they have no choice because the controller is part of the system. I am enjoying the Wii U controller more than I thought I would but the PS3 is my first choice for games still. I just hope that the PS4 has a tablet style controller too that feels like a bigger Dual Shock 3 in my hands. That would be awesome.

crazy_man2103d ago (Edited 2103d ago )

Anyone else think if someone gets enough disagrees or bubble down votes they should just be banned?

0 bubble treatment!

Perjoss2103d ago

Maybe a temporary ban at least, but i dont think there is anything to stop them just making a new account for trolling etc

lilbroRx2103d ago (Edited 2103d ago )

No, for the simple fact that the reason for getting disagrees and bubble downs seldom have anything to do with trolling in the Nintendo section.

In fact, the trolls tend to get more agrees and bubble ups.

Unless you speak ill of Nintendo, your going to get hammered on site, and don't woe unto the man who tries to point out a flaw with Sony.

xursz2103d ago


That is simply untrue. In fact you can even see from this thread. Nobody in the right mind is bubbling or commenting in aggreement with childish antics. He got the same agrees as a comment earlier which simply read "die sony die". I see valid critiscisms bubbled up all the time over Sony, justifiably. What Killzoner99 is doing is simply childish and i've called him out for it in another article as well.

iamgoatman2103d ago

Or just bring back the open zone. It was a crap hole, but the main page has basically become the open zone anyway. I mean, why ban the countless trolls when they bring in ad revenue? N4G is little more than a joke these days.

A PS3/Vita can do anything a wiiu can do ? NO IT CAN'T

Tell me where is your dual screen Blops2 ? Where is your remote play for all your games ? Where is your asymetric play like in Nintendo Land ?

Nowhere. The vita is a fail. And it's even more of a fail when you celotape it to a ps3.

Stop talking out of your ass. Wiiu had a good launch and just needs a bit of software to propell sales forward.

TBH , As long as the wiiu keeps getting games like Monster hunter , Bayonetta 2 , Lego City , Rayman Legends , Wonderfull 101 it will be awesome.

The more exclusives the merrier. I will take awesome exclusives over multiplats anyday , as I already own a 360 and a ps3.

deafdani2103d ago (Edited 2103d ago )

Bro, while I agree with your sentiment most of the time, sometimes you really, really bring the Nintendo defense attitude way too far. Why do you even bother to reply to Killzoner99? It's obvious he's a MEGATROLL.

Just bubble him down, give him a disagree and move along. Everyone that replies to him is only empowering him and making him last more with that trollish attitude. That's why people like Mika still exists...

Seriously, let's obey that old and true saying... "DON'T FEED THE TROLL".

vallencer2103d ago

Doubtful. And by doubtful I mean everything that you have just spewed forth on your computer screen. Every launch has games and then there aren't any but a few here and there its how it works. Look at your precious vita it's in a serious dry spell. There's three games coming out for it in the next 4 months. Which doesn't mean it's a bad system. But that's fine keep spewing your fanboy crap in a completely different article than what you're a fan boy for. Also the vita can not do what the Wii u does better. I know I have a vita and ps3 and the Wii u does things much better.

crazy_man2103d ago


Good point. Everytime they get a temp ban it gets longer and longer.

Horny2103d ago (Edited 2103d ago )

Ment to reply to killzoner99

I have both the Wii u and the ps3 vita combo. Let me tell you that the ps3 vita combo can't do everything the wiiu can. Sony simply doesn't use the vita enough in combination with the ps3 and 3rd party developers don't use it at all.

I was on the fence about the Wii u but after a week with it I enjoy the system. If you're going to have two systems next gen I recommend the wiiu with either a ps4 or x box combo. May is when the system really picks up.

AWBrawler2103d ago

Unnecessary fanboyism. If you prefer PS/Vita combo, then don't waste time arguing on a Nintendo thread. Would you try to argue Buddhism to a Muslim? nope cause it won't change his mind, same applies here. Our minds are made up that the wii U is a cool console, and nothing YOU do or say can change that.

born2live2103d ago

So you would rather leave comments to people who already agree with you? What's the point? He's entitled to his opinion and to share it, even if I don't agree with it. I do too have the ps vita/ps3 combo. I can tell you it COULD do the same thing as a Wii U, but right now, it doesn't.

AWBrawler2103d ago

He's entitled to a comment true. But come on. Why come to the nintendo section just to bash it. I don't like xbox but I don't go to the xbox articles bashing it.

At the end of the day trying to desuade nintendo fans from a nintendo console they love is like trying to convince a kid that allcandy is nasty. Sure you can try but its pointless to do so

jmc88882102d ago

ROFL says the person who doesn't know anything.

If you want to guess, you can guess, and be wrong on your guess.

It's quite easy to see the writing on the wall that you're wrong.

Oh I have a 360 and a PS3 and a Wii U and an i7 920 @ 4ghz, 16gb ddr3 1600mhz and GTX 670.

The Wii U is a good console. It's not a POS. Only people that know nothing say it is.

Dropping support? You really don't know business do you? That's more writing on the wall that anyone can see.

You also don't remember the past too or were too young to remember what it was like when the PS3/360 launched, otherwise you'd remember that developers made games on PS2/xbox and not 360/PS3 because there weren't enough consoles on the market to guess what...make money.

No one has 'dropped support' of the Wii U. Only your and others' simpleton brains think that. Whether it's lack of knowledge, experience, common sense or all of those reasons is yet undetermined.

You don't have to be a fanboy to understand reality, you just have to be smarter than forrest gump to realize it.

Also more writing on the wall is the Vita cannot do the same stuff the Wii U gamepad has. Only morons think so. I won't even list all the things the Wii U gamepad can do that the Vita cannot, I'll let you search the web for once to figure that out by yourself...since the writing on the wall says you haven't.

P.S. 720/PS4 won't be much more powerful. In fact, a mid range PC will be far more powerful than a 720/PS4...again I could list the reasons why, and yes they are common sense...but I'll give you some hints

Lower Price
New add-ins sucking up $$$
Not wanting to sell for a loss (or much of one)

As an owner of all the consoles and a PC, and will buy the 720 and PS4, I can assure you that you are so wrong you make George Bush look smarter.
