How Nintendo's Wii U Owned at E3

Kenneth at DualShockers Writes: "All eyes were on the Sony and Microsoft money match at this year’s E3. Big multiplatform games were shown off (Kingdom Hearts 3, yes!), the PlayStation 4 console and price point were revealed and both camps came out swinging with noteworthy exclusives. Yet, when the festivities were over and everyone was packing up to go home, Nintendo’s showing is the one that had the biggest impact on me.

After the dust settled and everyone ran home to go pre-order their next gen console(s), I was planning my Wii U purchase."

Nintendo beats Microsoft at least, I'll say that much

Nintendo offered a good console for younger audiences
Sony offered a great console for adults

Microsoft tried to sell a $500 over-charged input switchbox to the idiots who just can't stop loving MS's **** up their @sses

Younger audience...pff
Every gamer is a kid inside lol, why people try to say they are virile men that play FPS?

What is it with Sony is for adults ect WiiU is for adults and has more quality games that adults will play all these second sons and killzones are played by kids.

for anyone thinking nintendo games are for "younger audiences", do watch this:

i'm an adult, and equally enjoying games like Super Mario Galaxy, Kirby's Epic Yarn, Fire Emblem (clearly not a kid's game), Call of Duty, Battlefield, Crysis, GTA, etc.

I know too many 25-35 year olds who play and love nintendo games for this to be true. I myself am a 30 year old man who loves smash brothers. Been sayin it for years, people who think this think that what games they play are a measure of their maturity. When games for actual mature adults are more about unwinding after a long workday. Those games we play can be violent shooters or fun and goofy games. All I know is I play more Nintendo games with my girlfriend than any other games.

Lol! I thought Nintendo had a great showing at e3. Every game shown for the Wii U looked excellent, looked very very fun and really showed alot of growth and innovation. Mario Kart ∞ in particular looked gorgeous in hd and believe me this game will "move" systems. Super Smash Bros. looked graphically amazing and when I think of how Miiverse is going to interact with these games I get giddy. I only play Nintendo games on Nintendo entertainment systems. I own all the Nintendo consoles and a great selection of the games for each one. I love Call of Duty and Arkham City and I'm 49.
Don't believe the hype guys Nintendo is going to smoke Sony this generation. I've always said Microsoft doesn't belong in this industry and to see them try to inflict anti gamer policies (anti freedom.) makes me sick and makes me wonder what other dirty tricks they had/have for the future of of this business. I've said it a hundred times,"The Wii U is gonna' be hUge!".

That's his opinion and i'm ok with that. ;) But the way I see it E3 belonged to Sony and Microsoft.

PopRocks3591942d ago

Sony yes, Microsoft no. Not even close.

Ninte1942d ago

Sony and Nintendo own MS no :)

Gaming4Ever1942d ago

Microsoft... lol. Just no. Nintendo made Microsoft look like a scared little boy. And Sony? Don't even ask.

Microsoft had a better conference then Sony. What saved Sony's conference was the PS4's price and DRM... but X1's DRM is gone, so basically only the price.

I'm going to purchase the PS4 when Infamous releases, but Sony's E3 conference was quite boring.

Imalwaysright1942d ago (Edited 1942d ago )

And Sony's conference helped MS save the Xbone as it was one of the reasons why MS had to bendover and change the draconian policies.

Triforce0791940d ago

I'm 33 and Nintendo core games like Mariokart/Metroid/Zelda ect are my best games love them and yes they are hardcore.

this just in, e3 was opposite day.

kidding! i think for what it has to work with, nintendo actually did a great job at e3 by delivering well on the software front. aside from that though, i dont really think anyone could argue that it was all about the HD kids at e3 2013.

PigPen1942d ago

That's a good read and congratulations to you. I bet it was more so that Monolith Soft X game that made you see the light.
