Can't wait to see what the NX is all about! Hopefully Nintendo returns to E3 and has an actually press reveal conference for it :)

Just seems like to me all Nintendo has to do is get alot more multiplatform titles, the heavy hitters, get developers to make games for them as well instead of only going PC/PS4/X1. Big AAA games as well as smaller multiplatform games. They also need to run just as good as P/PS4/X1 versions as well. So you need decent hardware to do so. Just think of all the big hitter games in 2015: The Witcher 3, MGSV:PP, Assassn's Creed: Syndicate....ect. You can't get one of them for Wii U.

Don't get me wrong, I love my Wii U. I can play Super Mario Marker, Donkey Kong Country 1,2,3 SNES, Super Mario 64 N64, Super Punch Out SNES, the list goes on and its nice. multiplatform games. I don't even know if the Wii U can handle any of them anyways. My son has The Amazing Spiderman 2 on Wii U. The game actaully looks better than I thought it would, but it runs pretty bad at times. X1 and PS4 versions were alot better, probably becasue of the better hardware.

So if NX has the multiplatform game green light, it will do fine. If not and is like Wii U and orgianl Wii, it won't last, just like Wii U.

I agree. If Nintendo cuts corners on the NX hardware, like they did on the Wii and Wii U, they're just not going to succeed on their next console. Let's hope that they go back to the drawing board, and focus on solid, non-gimmicky hardware this time.

Didn't the Wii absolutely own that particular gen besides 'cutting corners' and/or offering 'gimmicky hardware'?

I can tell you want Nintendo DON'T need to do...listen to you!

The terms 'gimmicky' and/or 'underpowered' should be underlined in the trolls bible.

Nothing about either Wii or Wii U is 'gimmicky'. I'll tell you gimmicky...PS Move, Kinect. It's gimmicky to release hardware without any games - let alone GAME - to really take advantage of it.

Meh I'll take games like Assassin's creed, Mass effect, Bioshock, Far cry, Call of duty, Battlefield, Dark souls, Skyrim, Grand theft auto, etc etc that I could never play on Wii. Everything else is irrelevant.

higgins781529d ago

Games - for example such as Mario, Zelda, Metroid, etc, etc...irrelevant!? The games you mention are usually buggy half-finished shams. I'll take Nintendo's quality control over a 6 monthly instalment of a popular adolescents franchise.

@ higgins78 - I totally agree that Move and Kinect are gimmicks, but fortunately neither Sony nor Microsoft forced those gimmicks on their customers.

Don't like the Move gimmick controls? Don't buy the tiny handful of games that require them.

Don't like the Kinect gimmick? Again, just skip the few games that required it.

Most games for the 360 and PS3 did not require or even support the Move and Kinect. Both of those add-ons were not only not required, but not necessary for the vast majority of games on the consoles.

But contrary to your claims, both the Wii and Wii U are completely built around gimmicks, and those gimmicks are absolutely forced on their customers. It seems like you just refuse to accept that, and instead prefer to spin things to make Nintendo look a lot better than they really are.

And sadly, people like you just encourage Nintendo to follow the same broken philosophy that they have for over a decade, which will ultimately lead to their downfall. You're not doing Nintendo any favors by making excuses for all of their poor decisions, in fact you're aiding in their demise.

What is going to be that "hook" that implies I should be playing these amazing third party titles on anything besides my pc?

Next Gen will be quite interesting..

Absolute rubbish! Don't like Wii and/or Wii U 'forced gimmicks' - don't buy either. God forbid the Wii (for example) should open up gaming away from JUST the spotty adolescents dungeon/bedroom - whilst at the same time offering games for its 'core' audience.

With the Wii U (again, for example), like the Gamecube and Dreamcast, its all about trends. Each it is usually agreed offers a great library of games, but the average 'gamer' is more over marketing and what sells to what is actually good - it appears, judging sales alone.

"Don't like Wii and/or Wii U 'forced gimmicks' - don't buy either."

Yep, good point, and most people didn't buy the Wii U, so they didn't like the forced gimmicks either.

The Wii didn't "open up gaming", it just (temporarily) got casuals interested in gaming, but then the fad fizzled out, casuals grew tired of the waggle gimmick, and the console had an early death (it died years before the 360 and PS3, which are still getting games even now).

"With the Wii U (again, for example), like the Gamecube and Dreamcast, its all about trends. Each it is usually agreed offers a great library of games, but the average 'gamer' is more over marketing and what sells to what is actually good - it appears, judging sales alone."

No, it has nothing to do with "trends", and everything to do with Nintendo's failure to deliver a genuinely competitive, feature-rich product. The gamepad alone simply doesn't make up for the lack of features and poor specs of the base console, so people just didn't buy it (other than a small core of diehard fans). It really isn't that complicated, and there's no need to try to blame other factors for the failure of the Wii U.
