The lights are on
i think it's an interesting move on nintendo's part, technology, that can be put to use however the dev's want to put it to use, but can also be used as a normal controller, still unsure, but i think it will work out
I think its awful. NIntendo makes kid games and thats it. They will never be able to make hardcore games that the PS3, PSP (and PSP GO), PS VITA, and X-box 360 have
I'm still cautious. maybe after a couple months i'll get it, but thats only if they get good games to back it up
I still can't vote on polls even though I just hit 500 points.
I'm a bit frustrated over this.
I think the Wii U could have great potential, from what I've seen it could bring gaming to entirely new levels.
@MIkeJL0924Exactly what would you define as a hardcore game? In my opinion, any game has the potential to have hardcore players. What about those people playing The Legend of Zelda titles or Donkey Kong Country Returns for hours on end, vying for every secret location and hidden item? Or maybe a highly competitive Mario Kart racer who takes his racing seriously, or Smash Bros Brawl player who fights to stay on the top? If you don't believe that Nintendo is capable of "hardcore" gaming, maybe you should broaden your views just a little more.
I like it very much.
So this is the DSi XXL? this is not what you need for gaming especially, when you are not one of the top Next Gen consoles...
Hmmm I just don't know, I am a little skeptical but I shall have to wait till more games are announced for it, I don't want to be the person who says it will completely fail then for it to turn out even better than the Wii in terms of sales. :)
Please tell me that you are not serious. There would be no hardcore if it weren't for Nintendo. They are trying to innovate and become better than they ever have, and if there is any company that can pull off something as daring as this, Nintendo is the one. So please give Nintendo the respect they deserve from not only you, but everybody in the gaming community.
Sounds cool but im still not sold yet, ill wait to see what games and the specs are before I make my final judgement
I like that nintendo is trying to get the hardcore gamer but they are trying to do that while still holding onto their current market which are kids. Overall, I think it is weak at best. I will not be buying it. Especially since the games I would play are now starting to be overdone of turned back into side scrollers (Zelda looks the same as all the others and Metroid is now lame side scroller). My xbox can already play the titles nintendo is going to be putting out.
It's simply awful. I couldn't care less about Nintendo, and haven't since the NES. How the Wii was a success is beyond me. It's so lame for anyone over the age of 6 to love Nintendo.
I think it has possibility, but not too much..
Right now, it's pretty negative. And here are three reasons why.
Price point: Nintendo has always set an attractive price point for their home consoles, but not always for the handhelds. The 3DS cost $250, more than an Xbox. Considering the Wii U is basically a hybrid console/handheld, with the controller having some impressive specs, and Saturo Iwata himself saying it isn't going to be cheap, trust me, it won't be cheap.
First impression: Remember the PS3's unveling at E3? How it left such a bad taste in gamer's mouth's the PS3 is still playing catchup years later? Nintendo has now entered the same boat, although perhaps not quite as bad as that legendary conference. By all accounts, the Wii U's unveling was dismal, with little in the way of sense or power. You may say that the Wii is such a strong postion that it's successor is infallible, but you probably thought that about the PS2 as well.
The console itself: All of these flaws could be forgiven if the console itself was more impressive. They have taken heat for giving more time to the controller and not the system itself. Well, they should. The Wii U is basically a Wii with a fancy new controller, much like the Wii was a GameCube with a fancy new controller. Nintendo has survived and flourished due in large part to the goodwill of its fanbase, and the idylic image of the company itself. They think they have a coup in the large third party su[pport for the system, which is admittadly nice to see, but why get a Wii U to play great games you can already play on other systems. Nintendo lives and dies by the first party, and that is a fact.
