I tell you what, if Sakurai and Nintendo are considering adding Snake in Smash Bros., I guarantee they're unlikely to be doing so with as childish and spiteful an attitude as this author seems to think they will.

I doubt Kojima was deliberately insulting the Wii U Gamepad when he said he didn't know what to do with it, but I'd like to know how Smart Glass integration features in Ground Zeroes. Publishers more than developers seem to be flocking to create companion apps and tie-in games on tablets and taking that into account, it really is quite surprising that Wii U still sees such a small amount of support and innovation from third parties.

vishmarx3239d ago

why so?
its weak hardware ,selling poorly and nintendo and its fans are smug sob's who ddont give a rats ass about 3rd parties

ChickeyCantor3239d ago

Neither would you care for bad ports and bad business policies.

A good game is a good game, first party or third party.

"and its fans are smug sob's"
The irony.

Ratty3239d ago

The hardware is still slightly better than PS3's and 360's and the FOX Engine is highly portable according to Kojima so I'm sure it could be done.

Eonjay3239d ago

With all due respect, if the PS360 can play Metal Gear Solid Ground Zeros, so can the Wii U. However, it is completely unreasonable to expect third parties to support systems that may have low or even no return on investment. Its not practical and it is an affront to investors. I think the people who complain about support would think twice if they were responsible for making decisions that impacted more than their own self interest.

Micheal Patcher presented the ultimate rebuttal to Nintendo fans complaining about support. He said, if you want third party support, get out there and buy the console. Show developers that the Wii U is a viable system and help mitigate the risk involved with spending resources on it.

Weak hardware was never a winning factor, funny how far sony brainwashed you. Optimization is happening on all the old consoles, you act like it is impossible and you are unable to understand, that Wii U gamers like to play quality games, games, which are no bad ports, cost full money and get no DLC, what is so damn hard to understand about that? Are you really that naive?

I dont think they have to put MGS on Wii U, just for Snake in Super Smash Bros, would be childish to think that way. I mean, I also understand, that it is somehow dumb to want Nintendo to implement characters of games, to their successful franchises, of games, that dont even come to Wii U, because of bad sales, but then want a piece of the good cake from it. I understand both sides, I just think it wont happen and I think it is not only Kojimas decision to bring a game to the Wii U.

theshonen88993239d ago

He didn't put a game on the Wii and yet Snake still showed up for Brawl.

dcj05243239d ago

But MGS is on PS3 and the Wii U is more powerful than a PS3 so it should be on there.

Metallox3239d ago

@dcj0524 But Ground Zeroes is on PS3, and it looks awesome!

Maybe its because phantom pain couldent run on it?Phantome pain is not comin out on 360 or ps3.Or maybe he does not want to finacially fuck him over...theres a lot of reasons.

ritsuka6663239d ago

Definitely Sakurai should put Bayonetta. Platinum knows how to support the WIi U and Bayonetta is a much better character than Snake.

vishmarx3239d ago (Edited 3239d ago )

"anything on nintendo>>anything not on nintendo" X 1000

"Bayonetta is a much better character than Snake."

also fyi Platinum isnt supporting nintendo out of love.
theyre being paid to make the simple as that

Allsystemgamer3239d ago

This is true. They're paid to do it. Anyone who doesn't get it doesn't understand business.

kirbyu3239d ago

The person above is a fanboy just because they like Bayonetta more than Snake?

DanManDantheMan3239d ago (Edited 3239d ago )


Don't be so quick to act like you understand business yourself. Third parties don't get paid off to support a system (to an extent). Where the hell else are their games going to go if not on Wii U, PS4, or X1? What? Just PC lol?

RGB3239d ago

@ritsuka666 - Don't be ridiculous! Bayonetta will never be a better character than Snake.

@vishmarx - Spot on, you can like Bayonetta but to even say the character is better than Snake is completely laughable. Snake has massive buying power behind it. MS wanted Snake massively, same with Sony. Neither want Bayonetta!

@kirbyu - No, some people may prefer Bayonetta, but Bayonetta isn't better nor bigger than Snake! Saying so is laughable!

Question is, will Bayonetta spawned a franchise 25 years old and be playable on dozens of systems over 5 generations?... No!

Chrischi19883239d ago

You Sony trolls really are unable to accept opinion, All Nintendo articles are full of you and you really dont get it, that you come here to troll and we defend and then you act like we are the worst, but you are the worst.

vishmarx3239d ago (Edited 3239d ago )

FACT 1:Wii U can run the game better than PS360.
FACT 2:people have all the right to prefer bayo over snake.


Wii u not getting mgs is only due to the fact that its failing commercially and will need optimizations which would need investment,which should guarantee return prior to devlopment.

bayonetta has little to no character.not hating but all she's been in is a quirky bum rush hack n slash game.its foolish to expect much character development in such games
snake is widely accepted to be one of gaming's best and most deep character.
liking bayo isnt wrong,but saying a station wagon is better than a ferrari because youre getting one is just stupid

Both Nintendo and Platinum have straight up said nintendo is paying them to make bayo 2 or else the game wouldnt exist.

because not loving nintendo is trolling

Chrischi19883239d ago (Edited 3239d ago )

No, that is not what I said. Being critical is good, but being a hater and making everything bad and always taking the side, that is not nintendos... it is a trollish hater behaviour. I read a lot of your comments and most times, they are more about insulting fans of nintendos plattforms and acting like they are dumb, just because you are not able to fully work in your brain, that people have different tastes, opinions and things they love about gaming. You think because of you owning a PS4, you can be an ass to anyone who doesnt own one, you can insult anyone, you can basically be a gaming nazi, just because of that and if somebody says something good about the Wii U or bad about the PS4, you go nuts over him, like he murdered your child or something.

If Wii U would get the same multiplats, with same DLCs and features, but worse graphics, then 3rd Parties would do much better. Of course, 1 game wont change anything, it would need more then 1 game, most third parties need to think that way.

Ghost_Nappa3239d ago

Exactly, the only reason bayonetta 2 got made is because nintendo payed the developement costs.

truechainz3239d ago

he/she never said it was out of love. No 3rd party publisher supports out of love. They support out of cash so all you really proved in your comment is that you are ignorant enough to still use retard as an insult.

CrossingEden3239d ago

I'm sorry but did you REALLY just say....that Snake, one of the most fully realized and recognizable characters in inferior to Bayonetta? There are no words to describe the sheer amount of fanboyish delusion in that statement.
^ This perfectly describes characters like Bayonetta.

ChickeyCantor3239d ago (Edited 3239d ago )

No it doesn't actually. No matter how sexualized Bayonetta is, with her long legs ( to compensate for reach than anything else ) and her crazy moves ( she is a freaking witch for crying out loud, she is hardly human ffs) anyone playing that game gives a rats ass about it. It's pure combo bliss and her librarian personification is what makes the silliness even better.

But Cthulhu forbids people have different opinions on characters they like.

MrTrololo3239d ago

" Bayonetta is a much better character than Snake "
Nice Joke Bro

InTheLab3239d ago

What? Please explain this because....just explain this crazy.

ritsuka6663239d ago
