Wii Enters a More Serious Market

I've been intrigued by the games that are apparently coming out for Nintendo's Wii-U console. Nintendo Gamer recently published an article listing 22 titles that are basically confirmed. It's taken my interest because the titles clearly show that Nintendo wants to break into the same kinds of markets that the PS3 and Xbox 360 are enjoying – the more traditional gaming market. And publishers are keen to support them.

"serious market"
What does that even mean? All I can think of are things like Educational and viral purposes.

Its pretty obvious that they mean there will be more mature games for the nintendo platform. 3rd party devs will be bringing the samy type of content that is already available for nintendos rivals. I dont know how you completely thought around that.

i thought the same thing... every market is serious...

the article maker needs a new vocabulary...

"serious" doesn't mean "mature-content".
I'm questioning their logic.

A game like brain-training is also serious, don't you think?

And I agree with Kesvalk.
All markets are "serious" for moniiiies.

Its written in the context of Wii been seen as a casual platform, for casual gaming. That does not mean casual gamers aren't serious about it.

Its just a different way to differentiate between gamers.

Imo if if want mature Games I dont buy a Wii. This is nothing against Wii. But I think of fun games according to Wii

The Wii missed out on a lot of key titles this generation. But still managed to be the winner in the great console war.

I'm hoping the WiiU will bring that something extra from 3rd parties plus the great Nintendo games we all know and love to bring the Big N back to its dominance of the SNES days.

Give me a proper Starfox and a Mario Kart with the changes I've repeatedly posted on other stories and I will definitely support this system.

One thing im really looking forward to is playing FPS with DS FPS control scheme on the tablet. Touchscreen to aim, stick to move around and dpad+triggers for actions. Anyone who play a FPS on DS knows what im talking about. Its as close to keyboard/mouse I have seen.

WiiU has 2 joysticks so you wouldn't need to do that...

What people forget is Nintendo havn't had the pleasures of powerful hardware this gen so lets see what Nintendo do with there HD console.
