I got a sinking feeling in my gut about the wii u. Hopefully Mario 3d world makes the high end of the software chart
They didn't do a $199 holiday bundle.
That pricing is probably the difference between 200K sales, and 1 Million sales. Wii-U might have even had an edge over the next gen consoles at $199. Guess Nintendo doesn't even give a f%^& at this point. I knew that even the PS3/360 would blow them away with their $199 bundles.
At this point I'm not getting my hopes up for a port to PS3/4. I wont beg. It doesnt change the fact the game will fail hard comercially and we'll never see another Bayonetta again...
C'mon the 1st Bayonetta sold more than 1 million units. And it sold more on the PS3 even with all the bad publicity about its version. It was reason enough for Sega to produce a Bayonetta 2 for all consoles and, if this time around the PS3 version was actually good, I'm sure it would sell really well.
I blame all this sh*t on Sega. I'm kinda sad I'll never be able to play Bayo 2 though, as I'm not minimaly interested in the WiiU
Actually if the game bombs hard enough (as it likely will), it probably increases the chances of a port to PS3/PS4/Xbox. Nintendo is publishing the Wii-U version, but as far as I know it's not like they bought up the franchise. So I dont' think anything could stop a "Bayonetta 2 Sigma Plus" for the other consoles.
It's nice that Nintendo ensured a 3rd party exclusive game. But for me personally this one title is not a system seller, not even close. It's just another game to add to the list of Wii-U games that I "would" play if I wanted to invest in the system. There are a handful of games I would add on that list now. Unfortunately it's a very slowly growing list, which is why I still can't be bothered. However when we finally see a proper Metroid, Zelda, MarioKart, X, Shin Megami x Fire Emblem, I could see the needle moving at least enough for me to look at the Wii-U....
Shooter on Handhelds is some of the lowest standard shit I've ever heard
Except it's actually good. I was shocked at how close it was to console experience. I would even say it's closer to a PS3 level experience than PS2.
I was anti-handheld, and frankly I still don't see myself playing too much handhelds at home (even though I have both 3DS and Vita now). Anyway I knew I was doing a bunch of traveling this month, and picked up Vita Walking Dead bundle. So far this thing is freiking amazing. I've actually been playing more Vita this month than I've played my 3DS in over a year - and it's been great.
I guess if I was a "high volume" handheld player I would run out of games much faster on Vita. But for me, I don't see that being an issue.
photo-mode and replay make the game look much better than it really is.
Photo mode is actually awesome though. I'm sure I spent at least a few hours just in photo mode in GT5. Some of the images you can get out of it are just stunning, wallpaper worthy.
That being said, these pics are obviously photo mode and not actual gameplay.

I'm just waiting for them to sell an SKU without the tablet gimmick for $199. Well, that and Zelda WiiU...
A WiiU without the tablet....it will not happen.
That's what people keep saying, but I can't help but think that the Wii U would be selling pretty well if it were $100 cheaper...
There's no reason for it to not be $100 cheaper even with the tablet.
I said Nintendo holiday's sales would be a giant failure if they did not even have a bundle to compete with the $199 bundles from PS3/360, and it looks like that is coming true. Just seemed so obvious... to everyone but Nintendo executives I guess...
It will "make" 2014 Christmas. if by "seeing another Christmas" means that the system will still technically be in-production and have games being developed for it.. But I already see very limited display space for it - which will undoubtedly shrink even further.
Basically a race between Vita and Wii-U to see which one dies first. Vita seems to have the inside track if you see how little space it is getting at retail - i.e. practically none at this point. I could really see Vita not making 2014 Christmas, Wii-U might be looking at 2015.
I think the Wii-U will really start to suffer when the multiplats dry up for the PS3/360. Because at that point, the few multiplats that the Wii-U even gets now will just completely dry up.
No, but at times everyone probably gets bored/burnt out for awhile.
In the middle of the PS2/Xbox gen, I probably had a 3 year hiatus where I barely bothered playing games at all anymore, except maybe an occasional game of Madden or Tiger Woods golf (i.e. casual sports games with friends).
But by the end of the gen I started getting back into it (playing GTA: San Andreas and Metroid Prime will do that).
No. 360 is done. We know Microsoft's history, and hell like someone else said they pretty much were done after 2009.
I don't think PS3 will have very many exclusives either. I think this year was the last hurrah. I'd be shocked if there were any more really big reveals at all for PS3 exclusives. There might be a couple of b-team exclusives from Sony studios, and probably a few decent Japanese niche type games from the likes of NIS or Atlus. But that's about it.

I admire Reggie's confidence, but it's over for the Wii U. Put a fork in it, it's toast. It won't even sell as well as the Gamecube.
The new SSB will probably sell 9 million and boost it to 15 million or so and be the best selling game just like the gamecube. (Unless the 3DS version takes sales which is unlikely.
The game is going to sell 2 times (or 3 times for 15 million) the total number of consoles sold worldwide?
How about no.
im going with Resistance. But thats Only because i really enjoyed Resistance 3.. The story reminded me of the TV show Falling skies (which i love)
I think I like the "concept" of Resistance more. But it was never really well executed on the campaign front. Although I did enjoy Resistance 3 the most. Unfortunately, from a multiplayer point of view. The franchise was garbage. They were grasping at CoD straws for the last one. Was it playable? Sure. But why would I want to?
I would like to see it rebooted. Put more into the campaign, forget the multiplayer. Too bad that will never happen.
Killzone 2 and 3 were probably the best "exclusive" shooters on PS3.
I couldn't stand resistance online, and I thought Resistance 2 was terrible. Resistance 3 had a good campaign, but that's about it. More terrible online.
However Resistance 2 did have an extra 8 player co-op mode, which was sort of cool at times. So I guess that earns it some bonus points. But they dropped that from Resistance 3. Overall I would say Killzone by far. This even holds true with the Vita games, Killzone (awesome) >>>>>>> Resistance (perfectly playable, but average at best).
Doesn't this in some way cannibalize their graphics card business?
You would think it would on the low end graphics cards, since if basically eliminates the need to buy a low end graphics card.
Plus on high end graphics cards it probably hurts them as well. Don't alot of people with intel chips tend to go with Nvidia cards? I know it's not "necessary" to go with Nvidia card, but I just get the impression that the split would be 60/40 with Intel/Nvidia combo if not higher.
4 Million as of what date?
The big thing for Wii-U is really the Christmas numbers. Last Christmas Nintendo's total hardware sales was 1.75 Million. So I would think they would want to have at least around that number for the combined Wii-U and 3DS. If they were spinning postive about any lower numbers, it would be pure PR nonsense. If they somehow sell less than a Million even through the holiday season, it would be an epic disaster for Nintendo.
If they actually can move 2 million units during the holidays even going against PS4/XB1, then it wouldn't be so bad. They are still in the game, even if last place. However I think we should be bracing for some much lower Wii-U numbers.
Gears of War > those games.
Uncharted 3 in general was a mediocre game. Uncharted 1 and 2 were ALOT better
Uncharted 2 was a HUGE step-up from Uncharted 1, Uncharted 3 was only disappointing because it didn't really improve upon Uncharted 1. But it was still a far better/more polished game than the 1st Uncharted.

if you limit your play to only 1 or 2 games then of-course there will be no games... Are you an idiot?
so what else should he play? flower? knack?
Need for Speed Rivals? Battlefield 4? CoD Ghosts? Assassin's Creed IV? Resogun? There are numerous big games to play.
Obviously most of these are multiplats. So if he has a PC to play them in greater than 1080p it would be stupid, but in that case he's an idiot to complain because we know from last gen that the vast majority of quality games are going to be muliplats. How many big time exclusives would you expect at launch? Over the course of an entire year we are lucky if there are 10 top notch exclusives on any one platform, and actually that number is probably more like 5 at this point.

Yeah...for $300 it definitely is not a good option. Maybe at $200.
Sure, let's spend $400 on a PS4 or $500 on an Xbox One and play *tumbleweed.gif*
Those consoles are technically superior for $400, and have a future locked and loaded with full 3rd party support AND exclusives. It's easy to justify an extra $100 for the PS4 (maybe debatable on the $200 extra for XB1). Wii-U doesn't even have the basic multiplats like Madden, Battlefield 4, Need 4 Speed Rivals, Destiny, Thief, Dying Light, Evil Within, etc. That list will just keep growing every year. The console has been abandoned by every 3rd party but Ubisoft, and even in cases where it is not "abandoned", it gets an inferior "last gen" version of the mulitplats compared to the PS4/XB1 version.
Wii-U is last gen hardware that lacks 3rd party support. It should be priced more accordingly with the other last gen consoles (PS3/360). It is a fine option as a second console for Nintendo exclusives, it's a terrible option as a primary console, or if it's being priced anywhere near the PS4 (which at the moment, it sort of is). I won't buy a Wii-U for anything more than $199 holiday bundle.
Hahahaha! Exclusives?! Like Ryse, Lococycle and Knack?
Multiplats? Like the ones on PC?
You got nothing. Nothing.
$100 extra? So never play online? Get out of here.
What's the best Wii-U online game? It has none.
Wii-U lacks multiplats. So what if PC has them too? Sheep don't have high end PC's. It's just one more platform that has these games, whereas the Wii-U doesn't.Just further proves the Wii-U is a total failure as a "primary" console, and is only decent as a secondary machine for the occasional Nintendo game.
All last gen cows raved over the Bluray player in the PS3......................This gen.......................not so much.
Greatness Awaits Countdown timer.............................................T minus Eternity.
That's because PS3 was a beast blu-ray player in 2007. It was a huge value for anyone wanting both gaming machine, and an opportunity to step up to HD movie watching.
In 2014? Not so much - if you are an home theater afficianado you can get an Oppo player instead of PS3, or if you are on a budget you can get a player for $99 that is as good as PS3.The PS3 is still a "good" blu-ray player for sure, but it's not practical to buy as a blu-ray player other than seeing it as a "bonus" feature of the gaming machine. I haven't even played a single blu-ray movie in my PS3 for like 3 or 4 years. I still watch blu-rays all the time, but I have multiple standalone players now. So there's no point to use my PS3 for that function, nor would I use my PS4. I do still use my PS3 still for Netflix though..
