    the Wii U is not getting replaced this year, guys

    Thunderbird77 said: A few dollars more could mean hundreds of millions less dollars of profit in the long term. Go learn how hardware manufactures work. They try their best not to waste a single penny.   I already know about manufacturing mate considering how I know about the low costs of controllers and their marked up prices and you don't it's best you take your own...

    Thunderbird77 said: I'm sorry, was that supposed to look like logic? with the regular motion controls the original wiimote had, it costed X. adding wii motion plus at that time would be an unecessary risk since they didn't know how successfull the system would be and wanted as much profits as possible.   It is logic whether you want to admit it or not you'll swallow it, if...

    Thunderbird77 said: It wasn't pricey by itself but would make the wiimote more costly at launch, making it a risk. If it retailed for $20 at a profit, you can bet it costed less than even an old GC controller.   If it was pricey enough that they had to wait 3 years from 2006 for it to become cheaper then it's absolutely certain it cost more then a GC controller which would...

    Thunderbird77 said: They didn't happily cost the 3ds price and the 3ds was sold at a big profit margin at $250. They went from big profit at $250 to small loss at $170. The Wii U was already sold at a loss at launch, they couldn't make such a drastic cut early on without hemorraging money. They did cut the price because the realized the possible problems it could face, they...

    Thunderbird77 said: If controllers are made for peanuts, an add on for for a controller must cost even less. Good that you finaly agreed. Don't forget that MP was also required to play SS. Wii games bundled with wiimotes were very multiplayer intensive. Bundling a GC controller for a single player GC game, just so buyers of another console can play it, that's a...

    Thunderbird77 said: It indicates they will cut the price when it can remain very profitable even after the cut.   Except they happily cut the price of the 3DS when problems arose, ask yourself this what other Nintendo platform 4 years in didn't recieve a price cut keeping in mind on average a gen has been 5 years? GC was less then half the price of the U and received one,...

    Thunderbird77 said: No, it would not. And it wasn't even bundled with every SS but was a a wii add on. Bundling a GC controller with a GC game would be redundant, while just a partial bundle wouldn't let all wii owners buy it.   Yes it would controllers are made for peanuts and have been since the 90s, even if it's not sold with every copy a significant amount of copies...

    Soundwave said: I think Nintendo not dropping the Wii U price is another tell tale sign they've given up on the platform. If they're serious about this being something they're going to back for another two years basically, they'd be trying a lot harder to increase the userbase in a meaningful manner. Instead it seems they are content just selling the same low 3 mill/year Wii Us each...

    Thunderbird77 said: Motion plus retailed for like $20 whn it launched. It costed a lot less  than any full controller.   It cost more then a GC controller would have at the time of TPs launch and again controllers are sold with huge mark up, developing a WMP would easily cost more then developing a GC controller....

    Thunderbird77 said: Wii motion plus was a small and cheap acessory, far cheaper than a full controller and was only partially bundled.   WMP would cost a lot more then a GC controller because it was more recent tech and it's also well known standard controllers are dirt cheap to make, they've been sold with a massive mark up in price since the 90s. The's practically little...

    How likely is Zelda Wii U on NX?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 19 January 2016

    Octane said: Nintendo has never ported older games to a new console   You're wrong there, Mario all stars for a start, then the were a Zelda collection on GC, Animal Crossing on GC is also an enhanced port of the N64 game that never made it to the west, we also have the Metroid Prime Trilogy. TP was a multiplatform release and the notion of the next game following suit is not...

    Thunderbird77 said: Bundling the wii with gamecube controllers would be needlessly expensive. Bundling a gamecube game with a gamecube controller would have been redundant. There's no comparing to limited edition bundles nintendo does every now and then. The port was necessary due to incompatibility with wii controllers, and was made possible because it was essentially the same hardware....

    Thunderbird77 said: The wii was compatible with the gamecube controller but didn't include one (doing so would be needlessly costly). 3 years is a long time, you can't compare games released much earlier with one releasing at the same time as the console. The wiimote is not compatible with gamecube games, with or without the lack of buttons. Nintendo had to either port the game or include...

    Thunderbird77 said: Now you are just pretending you're not reading the posts. THE WIIMOTE + NUNCHUCK COULD NOT PLAY GAMECUBE GAMES. was it clear now? If wiimote and nunchuck could be used to play gamecube games through BC, a port wouldn't be necessary and sales would be the same. Unless you think the wii u successor's controller will remove buttons from the gamepad, it won't have any...

They made money easily with TP's port it's the highest selling Zelda game with the Wii version selling 7m by itself, what controller the version used doesn't even factor into this point. what are you on about?

No, they wont and they didn't with TP. TP gc version couldn't be played with a wiimote + nunchuck. If it could, wii owners would simply buy the GC game,...
