Nintendo Wii U bounces back with new games and lower price

One of the UK's largest news papers The Daily Star Sunday say - "AT HALF the price of the new PS4 and Xbox One the Nintendo Wii U is making a comeback"

PARENTS are getting ear ache from kids desperate to get their hands on the new Xbox One and Playstation 4 consoles this Christmas. But with both costing upwards of £350 before you even buy a game, many cash-strapped Brits are struggling to justify shelling out for either. There is an alternative that will keep the whole family happy this festive season.

couldn't agree more with this, and there is more coming next year lol. 2014 is gonna be great for wii u owners ;)

Yup, Nintendo is really getting it done. They will own 2014 for sure.

Honestly, the Wii U is the best console to buy in 2014 if you already have a PS3 or 360. Personally I've bought a PS4 as well but it's just collecting dust until Infamous Second Son comes out.

The Wii U maybe struggling with third parties for a variety of reasons, but it's fits first party lineup is second to none, and 2014 is going to be a great year for content you can only find on the Wii U.

As for the PS4 and Xbox One, I highly doubt there will be too many people that will buy both consoles since they are very similar and require subscription service to play online. I see the Xbox One losing out this generation because of it's price point and shared exclusives among the 360 and PC.

Absolutely, it's THE console to get while the other consoles go through their first year dry spells. It's got a good library. It's still more powerful than last gen. Still let's you play all your wii stuff.

All that and less than the competitors.

Of you like Nintendo-styled games in general, then yes, it's very worth it. It already has a lot of good games in that style available now.

Otherwise, you're better off with your 360 or PS3, and waiting a bit until the PS4 and One build up on their game libraries.

Wiiu and PS4 for me this Generation. Wiiu already has more JRPG's that I want to play than xbox 360 has.

Read's like an advertisement. I wonder how much Nintendo put in the Daily Star's stocking?

AsimLeonheart3560d ago

There is nothing in the article to back up the title. I thought Wii U saw some significant sales spike in the UK. UK is Wii U's weakest market and the author is trying to convince us that it is bouncing back. Looks like a desperate attempt at positive PR. Instead of doom and gloom like everyone else they decided to do a puppies and sunshine article.

The Daily Star is the UK's edition of The National Enquirer. With boobs.

Stringerbell3560d ago

ha it's like if Nuts decided to get a foreign correspondent just for the lulz. That is the Daily Star.

I'm not sure how anyone can disagree! They have stories about people turning into fish fingers & alien abductions.

Ben 10 Omniverse - God of War for Kids

Ben 10 Omniverse wasn't the first Ben 10 videogame, but it was a landmark title for actually making a decent game of a children's license.


Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two - Wonderful Co-Op Hamstrung by Aging Tech

Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two is one of the greatest co-op platformers ever made, and can still be played on modern consoles & PCs.


F-Zero 99 is Peak Nintendo, But Not the F-Zero We Wanted

F-Zero 99 is a fantastic new way to play the franchise, but it falls far short of a new game built for modern hardware.

I would have loved a F-Zero GX remake, not remaster, or a brand new F-Zero game.😞

The problems with that are it'd probably weigh in at a full price game and it wouldn't include the AX tracks that are weirdly in the GameCube version but can't be accessed.

PRIMORDUS6d ago (Edited 6d ago )

Actually I thihk you can get the AX tracks but it's really hard to do it. https://www.reddit.com/r/Ga...
But I think you might still need to find the arcade of AX, that would be nearly impossible today. There is hope, there is a rom hack for the GC rom that has all the AX tracks in there. 😁 Just search for: F-Zero AX Direct Boot

This. Why Nintendo won’t fan service us with this and give Wave Race the same treatment is beyond me. Switch 2 launch games would sell them out of consoles, but we’ll prolly just get another Mario because they figure that’s enough. Sadly, they are correct.
