IGN:With the encroaching next gen systems on the way, Nintendo’s president shares his thoughts.
"meh to wiiU's whole year.. Ninty is the last people who need to talk.. If it's not about handheld games get in ur corner!!! The casuals are gone to ipad... So ur controller failed u trying to capture them. Nice price drop after 1 year cuz ur a bad ass." - sony lol Would be funny if companies were this honest lol
The wiiu launch sucked
And don't get me wrong I love Zelda Mario metroid but I'm not getting a wiiu till these games are out Right now there is nothing that interest me
OMG! Reggies' psychic. That the same reaction I had when I saw the Wii U only had 3 core processors! And there disappointing E3 2012. 2013 at least gave us X for Wii U and Bayonetta 2.
I'm still keeping my Wii U. but I'm still buying a new console next year.
Its not yet a year for Wii U and Nintendo is forced to cut the price? Cutting it down like the Wii U is really worth $350... Will the slash do the same thing for Wii U like it did for 3DS? PS3 is still $50 to $100 less expensive, if I may add.
Wii duUum broke Mehggie's heart.
I liked Zombi U,but other than that, I didn't really see anything worth while. They really need to release Fire Emblem, or something more spectacular.
@Murad You should give Lego City, Pikmin 3, Wonderful 101 and Mario U ago. I had never played Pikmin before but decided to grab pikmin 3 and it has to be one of if not the best game ive played this year plus makes a nice change to all the FPS games out there at the moment plus its a challenging game. I was not to sure about wonderful 101 but after playing the demo im going to pick it up later on next month as it is a really fun game too.
Reggie's got a case of sour grapes.
https://twitter.com/yosp/st... Shuhei's twitter response to Reggie
Jeez Reggie looks like crap...he looks really stressed. I think he's been working too hard, poor guy
His comment is so Reggie. Gonna piss off a lot of passionate fanboys.
Not really. Nobody really cares what the competition has to say about the competition's product.
@UltimateMaster Right... Sony's E3 and Gamescom conference's clearly demonstrated that -_-
@Pekolie The difference is that the Wii U is no competition to the PS4 or Xbox One.
I can see why he said it (just the usual PR guff) but it is hilarious what he is saying because it make him seem like a closed minded idiot. But at the end of the day you have to look at it from his point of view. They have a system that the market doesn't want and you have these highly anticipated systems coming that are doing new things the Wii U isn't.
The difference is,we don't talk about tech.we talk about the experience' I agree regie. Only the mega hardcore ultra fanboys care about specs, the fun factor is better for us gamers.
I agree but wii u has no experience only for little kids, and maybe cause kids today like shooters. Wii u has mario zelda metroid all crap that i played on the 90's. the only one that may be worth it its zelda but still not a system buy. I purchase the wii u when it came out thinking they will get more games sold that crap in 3 months.
@ovnipc...first three months what game did you get in those first three months? zombie u was a fun game despite the rushed feeling, if your not into Mario that's cool I no longer do the side scrolling marios either but the 3d marios are all good. I personally didn't play darksiders on my 360 but I got it for my wii u, was gonna get mass effect but wanted to wait for 1 and 2 to have that continuity aaaannd I still waiting on that but that's not Nintendo fault. after the first three months it became dreadful but if you sold it within three months you never gave it a chance.
So far they haven't offered me any good experience 3rd parties are the ones doing all the work. ;)
yeah, thank goodness that Reggie confirmed that "we" will all be able to experience the same characters and games with some added gimmicks as Nintendo had been offering for the past 27 years. Nintendo= sameness
While I agree with Reggies' statement is about the experience not the tech. Sadly, Nintendo doesn't offer next generation gaming experiences or a gaming experience we have not seen before like to the moon, Gemini Rue, Amnesia dark descent or Gone Home. Sony first party studios brought Uncharted (which pretty much every action adventure game tries to copy, like Remember Me, Tomb Raider, etc), LBP, etc. .......
How many mario must you play in order to not be tired of the "experience" When Every freaking year your big franchises are " mario , zelda, donkey kong" then something is wrong. Not that there aren't great games on nintendo systems , but the sheer lack of new things is sickening. And no Wonderfull101 is not enough.
In a nutshell yes, the fun factor is what matters. But modern gaming is different, a lot of gamers want both, and I today's gaming world, we can have both. I give credit to Nintendo for sticking to their gaming roots, although for the Wii U it's not looking so good! I hope the situation can change.
@redemteur: Funny u say this, tell me what else other than a freakin million of FPS Games you have on that consoles, which are even worth mentioning? Which come even close to be as good as a Nintendo original? None would be the andwer. I can give you a super long lit of games, that are more or less the same, but with a different name, at least nintendo can deliver something else.
Damn! Reggie done brought in the Nintendo brigade! No one was paying enough attention to Nintendo, so now Reggie has brought the fight to us. I don't think that I'm the only one that feels that the $50 price cut will not be enough to stave off the eventual demise of the WII U. Looking at third party for example, the WII U basically has none! Even exclusive titles are barely benefitting Nintendo, the Wonderful 101 is a testament to that. The next generation is gearing up to go into full swing, and outside of a few choice titles, the WII U will pretty much be an afterthought once the big boys enter the ring. Oh yeah I forgot to mention if you're not a Nintendo loyalist! Run for your lives, because you're about to bubbled raped, and disagreed into oblivion.
Zombi U, Wonderful 101, Rayman Legends, Assassin's Creed III, Assassin's Creed IV, that new Tom Clancy game, Call of Duty Ghosts, Watch Dogs, Need for Speed, Lego City Undercover, Scribblenauts Unlimited, Sonic Lost World. All third party games already released, or about to release only on the Wii U's first year of life. Many of these exclusive games. Next year Wii U gets Bayonetta 2 as well. While I think that the Wii U could definitely benefit from MORE third party support, to say that the Wii U doesn't have it at all is, well, ignorant.
only 5 disagrees tsk tsk loyalists, lol. I cin not tell you what the future holds however a price cut with a continued flow of games is a proven equation. Sony and Nintendo have done this and been successful at it. who will win this gen we won't kno till next gen. I am personally getting a ps4 to accompany my wii u, simply because I typically own two consoles a gen and ms is on my shit list. honestly though aside from deadrising, nothing on the ps4 line up got me excited. with wii u it was only zombie u that gotme excited, well that and mass effect cause I had hopes of the trilogy coming but that was shot down. wonderfull 101 has only released in one region so far I believe give it a chance to fully release before u claim it as proof of anything other than games are not going to sell the same all over the world
@deafdani Out of those games not released yet how many will have equal support to the PS4 or XBOX 1? Hell they are already talking about how these games will be missing major features, if and when they're ported to the WII U, COD Ghost for the WII U has been on and off the table a couple times! Zombie U long touted as the definitive zombie game has what to show for it!? Meager sales! Most of those games futures hang in the balance dependant on if the WII U sell pick up, which IMO why Nintendo is opting to reduce the price of the WII U, because they know without it the competition will be too much, even with the games you mention coming out! Ignorant not at all! A realist definitely. On a side note why do you think the 2DS is on the scene!? To stop the momentum that's about to take place on both fronts! The PS4 and Vita. @stokes666 I'm not saying I disagree with you but look at the landscape of gaming, do you think people wanted a slightly more powerful PS3/Xbox 360 with the WII U? I would say no, because if they did the WII U would be flying off shelves almost a year into it's life! Do people wanted the tablet? No, because tablets of today can do a thousand more things than a WII U tablet! You mention Zombie U, but it's performance as a launch title was mediocre at best, the same reason Ubisoft is doing some of the best flip-flopping in the industry today concerning the WII U. I welcome being wrong concerning this, but paying attention to the latest trend concerning the WII U, it's not actually looking very promising.
It is super funny, how all ps and xbox fanboys cannot remember the release of the PS3 and Xbox360^^ What is going to happen, when ps4 and xboxone get released? All will hype until then, most will buy one and buy 1 game for it and then? They will wait like 1 year until something good enough for buying it comes out. People act like XboxOne already has the games from the start, but that is not true, look at the launch lineup and then we can talk about ignorant overhyping of a console ;)
@ChrisChi1988 First off it nothing wrong with hyping a game, console, or whatever for that matter! The difference is when the hype doesn't pay off! Here is such an example, instead of flying in under the radar, what does Reggie do!? He attract attention rigft before he's about to pass out of radar range, by badmouthing the competition, so in essence he is also leaving the door open for criticism! What's so hard to under stand about that? Second when I bought my PS3, I paid $744 for it, bought 4 launch titles for it, Resistance 1, Call of Duty 3, Virtual Fighter 4, Fight Night Round 3, and Ridge Racer! On my first purchase I spent a little over $1100 after taxes! Most releases that have come out on my system of choice that I wanted I've bought. Now 7 almost 8 years into this generation I've accumulated close to 350 disc based games and at least 80 digital based games! To top it all off I own the Xbox 360 as well as a WII, but my proudest achievement is my PS2, with close to 500 games, you were saying!?
@Two bubbles- Didnt Sony drop the PS3s price less than a year after launch as well? They shouldnt talk lol.
Didn't M$ lie about RROD. They definitely shouldn't talk. How many times did M$ drop the price of the 360.
Yup. The $599 model dropped to $499 like 6 months after launch. I remember because the drop came like a month after I bought one for $599 :(
^^The hell does MS have to do with this convo?
Yes, but $600 is just ridiculous. $350 is more than sufficient to make a console worthy of purchase.
Lmao at clarence.. Bu bu but.. Bu but ms lied about rrod! Take that! Ms didnt have to take away feature after feature for price drops did they.... And nothing changes the fact that the ps3 was the first console to drop by 100 within its first yr. They had 2 price cuts in its first yr if you think about it..
SHHHH dude dont talk bad about $ony here the $ONY KGB's will hunt you down. Dont you see they have lots of drones. You want bubbles trash xbox and the drones will like you.
@LOGIC: The hell does Sony have to do with this convo?
No they dropped the price before it even launched! I remember that faithful day and krazy ken even told you to get another job lol.... then a book was made about how bad sony was doing in japan... it think the pspgo flopped soon after that too. wait till the ps4 is selling a million a week then get on your high horseslol!
Actually it was a year later or a year and a half later.
didnt ps3 come with hardware at the time that is called bluray and its self was worth 1000 bucks at sonys launch so for ps3 at the time was a steal? I thought so thx.....
dance blind puppet,dance
Can you please TRY to use proper spelling and grammar.
What else you expected him to say? Sony isn't saying nice things about the X1. Honestly I don't expect them too. Its a competition at the end of the day.
I agree they will never big up another product just like any other rival company would never big up another company's product. I do agree with him though there are more games I want for the WiiU than the PS4 and Xbox one between now and march. I am getting a Xbox one on day one as I want Forza and KI but I also want DK, Mario 3D, Sonic, Mario Kart, Super Smash Bros, Zelda HD for the WiiU and I already own Pikmin 3 and ordered Wonderful 101 today and I ive also got Pokémon X on pre order to. But Just because I think the line up for the WiiU is better than the X1 and PS4 dose not mean that it is the same for everyone else. There are games I fancy on both X1 and PS4 out side of what I said but I have got to a point where I have need a rest for action, Hack and slash and FPS games as the PS3 and 360 have been battered with them this current gen so the Nintendo line up is a nice change for me.
WiiU is not even a next-gen console. Reggie: When are you planning on releasing a competitor to PS4 and X1?
Meh 1.Meaning to not care for and/or about. 2.A respond to something you are not paying attention to and have no interest for. 3.Meaning not of a big deal. Like them or not, Xbone and PS4 ARE a big deal. That sort of attitude is why I've found Nintendo Irrelevant since the N64 even though I've owned all their consoles except the WiiU.
Big mistake. http://i.imgur.com/eWkqQdG....
LOL that's a good one :-D +1 funny-bubb
This is the next one next to Kaz pwning all those people
@Money Bashing the Wii U yeah your cool. Nintendo has a great line up of games and a price drop they'll do fine. I do disagree with his disregard of the new consoles as "Meh." Sony and MS have powerhouse machines that shouldn't be underestimated by Nintendo, honestly that's just asking for it.
Plus the upcoming 2DS isnt quite the prize either.
Reggie is right they have N.E.R.D developing cloud based services like how to add more power to games when online ect,and they are very much involved with cloud their Nintendo Network runs on cloud,like he said NintendoTVii is cloud,so i really like his comments on Sony/Microsoft because he's right the games will be the most important not saying we have this tech and that tech,we want to know what your going to do with that tech,its why the launch line up is weak on xbox and ps4 i mean their are no games that will sell consoles end of so after the initial sales from hardcore fans sales will drop right off,Reggie speaks sense END OF and i think Meh to ps4 and xbox1,over priced consoles with off the shelf hardware,not custom like wiiu ie the power you get from release games wont improve that much over time because with off the shelf hardware you can get almost 100% power from day 1 and Battlefield4 is 720p and will stay that going foward......
Guys this "Reggie" is the bane of Nintendo fanboys. He says "meh" to X1 and PS4's LAUNCH line up. When in reality it took Wii U a whole YEAR to come out with "Zelda, Pikmin, Wonderful 101, etc". And let's face it guys once Sony has Santa Monica, Naughty Dog, Media Molecule, and the rest of their first party revealing their titles. We'll see how arrogant Nintendo will continue to be.
Lol, compared to Nintendos first party titles none of the other consoles first party titles other than maybe Halo can even come close to the success of Nintendo. The launch lineup of the 2 other consoles is a pure joke, considering the hype over those two consoles. All all can say is Hardware Hardware Hardware... look, those jaguar cores in the Playstation are pure crap, you need at least 8 to have a somehow good performance. 1 Jaguar core doesnt even come close to a IBM PowerPC Core. It lacks the needed cache for each core. Maybe somebody should tell you, that AMDs CPUs the last couple of years with its 8 core lineups didnt even come close to Intels 4 cores i-lineup, even though it had double the cores, why? Because the cores looked at as a single pretty much sucks. IBMs PowerPC cores for example are used by the NASA, so much to the cores. If they used 10 jaguar cores, it wouldnt be any better. Not saying it aint faster than the Wii U, but the difference is way way smaller than most people believe, why? Because the Jaguar cores are really bad. Look at smartphones, when iPhone5 came out and Galaxy S3. S3 used 4 cores and iPhone5 used 2 cores, but the 2 cores were just as good as the 4 in the S3. Somebody who is informed should know way better, but I dont expect that from Console gamers, but I expect that from PC Gamers, they should know better.
@Chrischi1998 Dude, fudge sales! Mario sells better idc. I'd rather play Uncharted, Infamous, and God of War over games like Mario that they keep rehashing every year.
@Shadowsteal People just don't understand that no ones trying to take anything away from Nintendo, arrogance has no place in the industry, especially if you're not delivering on your promises or claims! The launch window is closing fast for the WII U, and outside of the few pickings here and there the majority of the launch window has been filled with games already on other systems up to a year in some cases. @Chrischi1988 So guess this is your personal trolling account, I actually replied to you thinking you had someone possibly worth listening to, until I saw you comment history started yesterday, at the rate you're going you're bubbles are not going to last very long!
the launch lineups for the new consoles do suck. I'm excited for Titanfall. Witcher 3 isn't a launch game and is also PC. As far as exclusives for ps4/one, they all look boring.
To me, even $300 is still too expensive for an underpowered 8th generation console. It needs another $50 deduction
I really want a Wii U. I just do not want all the gimmicks attached. If it had returned to Nintendo's roots with a SNES style setup, I would already have one. :( Greed is the undoing of human kind.
the never changing nintendo 30 years later. hey everybody we got some mario, and pokemon." i swear it's like they don't even try.
"We’ve got Zelda. We’ve got Mario. We’ve got Donkey Kong." - Reggie Fils-Aime Looks like the same line-up from last year and the years before. How about some new and original IP's Nintendo that you created yourself
"We’ve got Zelda. We’ve got Mario. We’ve got Donkey Kong, We'ev got kids" - Reggie Fils-Aime fixed I think "make believe" should go to nintendo and not sony. They are delusional..
Nintendo makes Call of Duty look like a fresh and exciting new IP.
They dont even have zelda yet ... just a gamecube remake ...
That is the same thing Nintendo said for Wii, GameCube, N64, and SNES. Maybe the CoD guys aren't so lame for using a game engine from the 90's considering Nintendo hasn't changed their line-up since then.
Ridiculous analogy . Nintendo has explored many gameplay genres and ideas with those same franchises . CoD is just the same stale shooter every year .
