I'm sure the future of the WiiU will include the pointless restriction known as region locking.

Shok3660d ago

Lol, true. I never understood why companies do that.

But hey, look at the bright side. Nintendo will offer retail games for digital download, so if there's some game only released in Japan, Nintendo won't have to worry about localization and they can just put it up for download.

Win-win situation. We get the game with the better japanese voice-overs, and Nintendo doesn't have to ship physical copies, meaning there's no risk in low sales.

There are quite a few flaws with that. Biggest flaw is with what your suggesting the games would still be in be handled by western publishers. So any game they don't want to bring to the west (say a publisher believes a game might be controversial in the west, or ones that the publishers believe, as Sega once put it, "Too Japanese").

I'm not sold on the Wii-U as of yet...I want Nintendo to deliver with social features and to step outside of their comfort zone and build some new franchises/characters..bring out some mature themed ips while they're at it...Nintendo needs to come out strong and really try to challenge Sony and MS...

ChickeyCantor3660d ago

To be fair, it's the fans that demand Mario/zelda/pokemon etc.

And it shows. Even after 25 years it's selling great. Meanwhile they have made new ips.

People just tend to ignore them because all they see is mario/zelda

The Future of the WiiU?

It is May now...

WiiU rumored to launch October/November...

So, let me make sure that I understand. This is an article that won't really be relevant for atleast another 7 months?

I'll be sold on the Wii U, the second Nintendo give it a proper controller.

yabhero3660d ago

by proper controller do you mean some version of a controller that we've had for 12 years and will continue to use without change
honestly im glad nintendo gives us different controllers

123_3213660d ago (Edited 3660d ago )

No, i mean the proper controllers Nintendo consoles had before the casual junk.

CC PRO and all wii controllers are fully compatible with the wiiu.
Just grab a wii remote and plug in a ccpro and BOOM..."normal" controller.

At least, unlike sony and Microsoft, Nintendo is giving you more options. And don't expect that dual shock or move wand to work with the ps4... dualshock which has had to be re purchased for each PlayStation despite being the exact same design...

RE4 Wii is the definitive version of the game. COD games are funny to play with the motion controller to aim. Games like just dance are really fun to play with friends (physical friends, not online invisible friends). Motion controllers aren't bad at all, but I'm pretty sure you didn't even try one.
