It was just annoucnced via a trailer that Darksiders 2, Batman Arkham City, Assassins Creed And More Would Be Coming To Wii U
Now With Screenshots
WOW AMAZING...games I can already play on my PS3 =D
Was thinking the same thing. I can play all this on PS3/360. Welcome to current gen Nintendo
well it was about time anyway, i think they realised they couldnt just stick with casuals
Actually they could have stayed casual. These mature rated games might scare away the family friendly casual gamers from buying the system. Based on what I see, is the Nintendo U will be only good for the Nintendo 1st party games. I'm gonna play the majority of multiplats on PS3/360. Actually I'm not gonna buy the Nintendo U at all!
So let me get this straight... The n4g community screamed up and down that wii was too casual and didnt have any hardcore games or huge third party support? So nintendo answers that and gives us a new console with another innovated (sorta) controller that can play the hardcore games and does have third party support and now the n4g community rejects that? Wow... Edit: By the way you know nintendo will come with the first party support no doubt.
yeah right, try playing those games on your ps3 in 1080 p 60 fps
Nintendo already messed up a few years ago when clearly their demographic was the casual gamer. With this offering with the Nintendo U it's not gonna be 2012 before they even start coming out with hardcore games. It's too little too late. By 2013 the next xbox and Playstation will be coming out. Nintendo will once again be behind the curve.
@maniacmayhem You're not seeing the picture. If they made a system that can play better or even produce better looking games than that of the PS3/360 then it would have been fine. However, what they made is just on par of what we have right now that's why they focused on the controller.
@ lovable Have they released the specs of the new console yet? Did the games for ps3 or 360 take advantage of the consoles full power when they were first released? C'mon people dont be this blind.
but they are new games
But with a late 2012 WiiU release date, half of those games will NOT be new by then.
good point :D i just realised
Darksiders 2 and Metro: Last Light looked horrible on it. What a joke. And yet, it'll most likely sell millions again. @waterboy Rewatch the part where they showed Darksiders 2 and look closer. You'll see. @xtremexx No need for personal attack. Just saying what I saw. Look closer to the Darksiders 2 and then compare it to the recently released screenshots from PS3/360 versions. In comparison to Wii, of course those graphics are awesome. But they're certainly not at PS3 or Xbox 360 level.
looked horrible? youve got bad eyes son
f**k you smoking?
no personal attack intended, i was joking :D
I want to see the RAW perfomance and native Graphics of the console =). Let's see if this console can do what Xbox and PS3 can do on Graphics.
Basically Wii U will be getting some old ports that is it. Then after those sell like crap the 3rd parties will completely abandon the Wii U.
exactly this is nothing, no one with a ps3/360/PC is going to run out and buy the wiiu for mulitplats they can play on there current systems. Plus lets say the casual wii people want to get a core experience why spend so much money on a new console for multiplats when you can get a ps3/360 cheaper
Lol right Buy the Wii U to play the same game twice. But I think the graphics of the console aren't gonna be 100% Identical to the PS360 something tells me it isn't gonna be 1080p res maybe 720p. Just to keep the cost competitive.
Wait... You must be really confused. 720p isnt even reached in a lot of PS3/360 games, and in no way is 1080p the standard for the games on those consoles. If it plays games at 1080p its be superior to both the PS3 and 360.
Well 720 is achieved in most games of today multiplats especially but exclusive games can receive 1080i if polished enough even in 1080p.
You wont buy the Wii U to play the same game twice. Saying that is like saying "I already own a X-Box 360, why should I buy a PS3 too? They have the same games." Some of these people on N4G are just... excuse me here, retarded. Basically what Nintendo is saying is, "Not only do we have some of the greatest first party games around but now all those multi-platform games will be available on the Wii U and be just as good if not better."
LOL, I don't know why this is so hard for some of these people to grasp. I agree with you 100%. I will defiantly be getting on. I think they are being so hard on it because it threatens their imagined superiority of the PS3. Nothing can ever be better than their beloved toy. Here the thing with me, I’m a gamer and will be getting it to play the new games. I won’t get my feelings hurt if it’s technically better than my 4 to 5 year old machine.
I think you guys are kinda missing the point. With the new controller there will be exclusive content to play and different ways to play that will enhance the experience.
these games are on ps3 and 360 ???????? we dont have to buy a new console to play these games on. WHERE ARE THE NEW WII GAMES? utter disgrace luigi mansion would be perfect for wii but they blowed it by putting it on 3ds
Actually those games looked worse than X/PS3.
how about showing a demo of these games being played? how about showing the actual console/controller on stage? they showed nothing. nintendo blew it
I buy a Nintendo console to play Nintendo game and I didn't see one single Nintendo game. Not one. WTF?
They weren't supposed to announce everything. They were just showing that they were working on a new console. They will announce it properly at a later time. This was just a taste of what is to come. What worries me, is that they didn't even mention one game for the Wii, so the time until the Wii U comes out, wii owners won't have anything to play... again.
I'm confused. It's the controller the console itself? It's a plugin for the wii? if it's -and I hope not-, then, why the EA guy told us that the graphics are HD and amazing, and games like Ninja Gaiden 3 are coming? And then, why every developer talk about it as a new console... except for nintendo? How do I plug in to the TV to get HD? Doest the wii do it? It's the wii the proxy? Where do I put the DVD's? I'm officially confused. But, still.... that name sucks.
Is a New Console, there is another Thread about that. But Nintendo talked about the Controller of the Console. Still, I want to see the Specs of the Console and if that Console can move at least HD Graphics with 720p.
it's because they blew the presentation at first . At first it even looks like the presentation is for the pad , an accessory for the original wii . While in fact there is a new console and the pad . It didnt help that the first gmes were "wii like"
the hating for a new game platform starts today, it will be just like ps3 when pc fans started this gen ps3 never got its just do still doesnt now, im a ps3 fan to the heart but you all are tripping ive never seen anything like that bird scene on any game
Doesn't mean it's real time. FFXIII had 1080p cut scenes on PS3 that played like a movie. Wii wasn't capable of that bird scene because it wasn't capable of HD. WiiU is.
see nintendo there's fasionably late, then theres this... you add a current gen console at the end of the current generation basically :s why would casulas upgrade?? else surely they'd have bought the 360/ps3 in the 1st place and why would 360/ps3 owners switch? when they can get the same on their current consoles and wait for the TRUE next gen consoles???
No specs for the console were given. Also you seem to be confused on what next gen actually means. Nintendos next generation console is the Wii u like it or not. Thats just how it works. Bout the games excuse. I wouldnt expect developers to have games out right now that arefar superior to their 360/PS3 counterparts. Hell it wouldnt surprise me if most of the 3rd party footage used was from PS3/360 builds. This was about the controller. We will have to wait to learn about the actual console
well, in your words: Since gen = power, then, the PS3 and 360 are shit, have you ever heard of PC gaming? Just saying you have the wrong idea of what a "gen" means.
the pc is effectively a next generation ahead of consoles atm, nintendo are a joke they've released a 3ds with few actual brilliant games, and actually the specs are up in several places... nothing amazing there
by then amd 7970 and gtx 680 will be out so ill just pass.
i couldnt watch the show but was watching the blogs on live feed. sounds confusing and the pictures of the controller look so cheap and horrible. i just saw a vid on youtube and it looks really corny. they didnt actually shown any new wii games either. zelda, wow. how about some new wii games!?
The real winners here are the third-party multiplatform developers/publishers who now have a new Nintendo console to sell more copies of their games on instead of all sales just going to PS3/360 consumers.
My Wii system died on me a year ago will be getting this one. But I dislike the name Nintendo keeps putting on their systems sounds gay
It's a smart move for Nintendo, I'm sure they'll get some sales out of this. But I'll stick with my PS3...
This is why Nintendo is King. Sony nor Microshit can't touch them. THWIP71: T_T Yes, I was serious. I haven't owned a Nintendo product in years.
Oh wait...were you being serious? :o
....what? LMFAO Go play Batman next year, I'll play it this year when it's released <3
...by the time WiiU arrives. I guess that's fitting, given how far behind Nintendo is on everything else this gen. :o
It's nice these games are coming to Wii U, but by the time they release, they'll have been available on PS3 and 360 for a while. Hopefully, these games will get a nice graphical facelift and some extra content.
In case you didn't figure it out from the videos shown...the "more powerful than PS3" was bogus. All indications are, it's barely on par with the 360...maybe under it. Either that, or all the games they showed weren't actually running on WiiU hardware, but rather the lowest spec PC you could build.
We'll need to wait until specs are announced, but considering Nintendo kept the specs under wraps, that's not a good sign.
well it is a bit interesting but im going to have to see more of this before i decide to buy
Nintendo have flopped this E3. They still have those stupid Wii avatars too. I'm through with Nintendo consoles. I hope they do better the gen after next gen.
Very disappointed with the WiiU and heres why... I never liked the Wii for more than a quick 10 mins because I am a hardcore gamer. I have a PS3, PC and 360. I am exactly the type of gamer that Nintendo wants to get on board with the WiiU, the type of gamer they forgot about with the Wii. Heres the deal... - all those multiplats they have shown I can already get on my consoles. - devs will not make better multiplats for the WiiU because the other systems are already established. - the controller looks terrible compared to a dualshock or 360 controller (as in how comfortable it might be). - Sonys first party studios make games that define the power of the PS3. I can't see Nintendos first party studios doing the same for the WiiU because Nintendo first party games are not about powerful hardware in the first place. - MORE GIMMICKS!! I hate gimmicks. They will never appeal to me. If they had of made a far more powerful console than the PS3 with a regular controller I would be all over it but they haven't. All in all the only thing that separates the WiiU from the PS3 and 360 is the controller gimmicks which I could not care less about. Ill stick with what I have and maybe buy a PS Vita if it turns out the online gaming is up to scratch.
So it's Nintendo's version of the PS3/360 technology wise? They should have made this instead of the Wii, now they're gonna be behind when PS4 comes out. Not cool, Nintendo.
Wow there are some really dumb people here... NO WII SPECS WERE GIVEN. They did the same thing with the Wii. Showed the controller at first then the console and games later on Its amusing how desperate fanboys are to hate on it even if they have to make those reasons up. Same thing happened with the Wii and look how that worked out for Nintendo.
