The Wii U will NOT shock me this year at E3...Nintendo just needs to give up.
Why? They're doing well. The Wii was a pile of shit for hardcore gamers, and I can't speak for Nintendo fanboys that grew up with Mario and such, but it didn't seem to appeal to that crowd either, but it did appeal to families, and did extremely well.
You wanna bet?
Sorry not everything is "Call of Battlefield: Skyrim"
They need a little bit more than just reboots of Zelda and Mario to win me over to be honest.....
I'll be shocked if the Wii U shocks me this year
Skyrim is not really "Hardcore". I have family members who play Skyrim who when they were a child the closest thing to a Wii actually was made by the human body itself.
OT: I doubt this will "shock" me. Unless of course it has those shock things on the side.
I don't even play 2 out of those 3 games for starters. The Wii was fine, but the Wii you just looks stupid. I had a Wii and then we got the kinect and it's way better.
You clearly have no grasp on market trends and results if you think they need to give up. The Wii was a massive success....Nintendo's problem is that they don't cater primarily to the family market - whether that be kids games, or older generations such as Mario and Zelda for parents to relive, and the kids to experience for their 1st time.
Regardless, the market they cater to is well taken care of, and according to the Nintendo PR team who were at E3 2011, the Wii U will branch out in all directions; where it'll cater to families, casual gamers and even some hardcore gamers. We just need to sit tight and wait to see what third party games are coming to the console.
im gonna buy it just for zelda hd
Nintendo is the ultimate money grabber. All they have is 4-5 games that they re-release for every console. And people just lap it up.
Not really. Everytime they've had a huge success they've done something innovative. When they try to sell something just for the classics it usually doesn't do as well. For example, the NES became a success without any of their classic trademark games. They sold it more as a toy instead of a video gaming console, because video games were dead in America when it they started selling it here, and it became the number one toy in America. The GameBoys became hugely popular. Why? Because you could walk around with it and play it whenever, and it was a massive success. The GameCube didn't do anything really that special. It looked and was just another console. The only thing it had going for it was classic Nintendo titles, and it lost to both the PS2 and the Xbox. With the Wii, they did something completely different then what people were used to, and it was a massive success for good reason.
Honestly...Nintendo is the only ones moving this market forward. They were the ones that started the motion sensor. Xbox then took it even further YEARS later...not to mention the Move being a glorified Wii. They definitely come up with innovating ideas (3DS anyone? though it could be better but it's still in it's infancy). I'm excited to see what they can bring to the table.
I miss the Gamecube. ):
Just like the Wii?
Nintendo has a great series of games. When wii technology came out it was a pretty big shocker. But this wii u thing is behind the kinect. I dont see any use for it seeing as i can just buy an ipad and have better graphics than it. And yes you may say well the wii is a kids game console, well not really when your kid drops the wii u and cracks the screen or when he throws the wii-mote and cracks your tv.
Never really looked at it like that.
Opened my eyes to Nintendo's skills.
I don't see what's wrong with having a normal controller? I loved my GameCube. Hated the Wii.
Weren't they to first to have joysticks for the thumbs? I want to say yes and then later playstation adapted that but used 2 thumbsticks instead of just one.
