Don't Own a PS3 or Xbox 360? Nintendo Wants You to Wait for Wii U

Nintendo president Satoru Iwata has told investors that the “ideal situation” for Nintendo is that the Wii U 2012 launch will convince people who are looking to buy a HD console to wait for it, instead of buying a 360 or PS3 now.

Now that's a bad idea; and I know something about bad ideas... (goes off into Family Guy flashback)

Lol why buy a console at 300usd -400usd when its going to come equipped with a GPU thats already 3 gens old by the time it launches.

I would rather spend the money getting games for my PC which will still be more advanced then the specs rumored for Wii U lol.

LOL true that... sad that some games will never be seen on PC sadly...

It works both ways some of the games wont be present on console either. Currently playing Shogun 2 and Witcher 2 on my PC. Having a blast with it.

Best solution is to get a PC and Sony console. PC for all multiplats and PC games plus Sony console for all Sony exclusives and console exclusives. That way you are pretty much covered.

MS doesnt have too many exclusvies most of their exclusives are present on the PC, Wii games so far run better on PC via dolphin. Wii U looks like a disaster waiting to happen.

I just wish they would do something about that dam controller! I couldn't see playing games on that for more than 10 minutes!

I'm hoping that is just the early controller.

Here are the deal breakers for me...

New controller is just a controller, PS vita can probably do the same stuff and leave the house as well.

The new controller looks like it has a lot of opportunities to be a tablet for the living room but it won't be.

The console looks like it is nintendos step into this gen and not next gen.

Won't play DVD or blu-ray.

Substance101, they're talking about consoles not PCs, so your comment is rather moot.

@ Substance101
I like the little jab you took at MS, but as a gamer I say own them all if you can. I like to be able to play any cool game that comes out, so to not miss out on anything I say (again if you can) have them all. For example this year I already have Infamous 2, and I will get Uncharted 3, Gears of War 3, Diablo 3, Legend of Zelda SS, ME3 and I'm sure a few other I can't think of right this second. In my opinion all 3 consoles and the PC have something worth getting, so there's no need to be a troll and leave out any of them.

if you already own a wii, xbox, or a ps3 you probably aren't a gamer.

PS3 is where the "First Party Games" are at.

I think he forgot to put "don't" in there somewhere.

M-A-R-S-H-A-L-L3305d ago

I realllly don't know about that controller...

Sharingan_no_Kakashi3305d ago a 300 dollar console with a large back catalogue of games and good graphics now.... or wait til next year and pay the same price for a console with prolly equal graphics and a few launch titles.....

Thats pretty much how i see it. Nintendo fans will go for it but anyone else will not be tempted to buy this for HD games unless its a lot faster than PS3 and 360. They will be even cheaper by the time this turns out and have a vast back catalogue of triple A titles, going cheaply.

theIMP3305d ago

I will get it just to have all the consoles out, and so I don't miss out on any good exclusive that will come out on WiiU. I will probably wait until it has a few games worth getting first though.

undercovrr3305d ago

How about showing us actual games with gameplay that are coming out for Wii U before trying to sell your console to us Nintendo?

For me, the old fashioned controller is the way to go.
