The Nintendo WiiU: Hate Vs Love

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - The Nintendo WiiU: Hate Vs Love

I am what you might label as core gamer, but friends would consider me hardcdore. I was disappointed by the lackluster announcement regarding Nintendo WiiU, but I know it is full of potiential, and most importantly will play Nintendo games, thus I will buy and love it. Currently however I am disappointed by the appareance of it. 

Well my friends individually just called my up, and are super hyped about this product, and all it has to offer. Not only that, but I noticed on other forums, the mood isn't as down as the one I am seeing on this forum.

 Is something wrong? Am I missing something? Have I become elitist or something, and don't even know that I am one?  Does anyone else notice something similar?

 

Howerver I do love the tech demo for a possible Zelda game, and love my 3DS to bits.

I love the concept of it and know I will adore it when it is released, but I thought the presentation was rather crappy, bar the 3DS sections

Actually, it seems the problem was that they hoenstly had no games ready for the device. Just saw the zelda tech demo, and it looks above current gaming, even on just youtube. Only game that comes to mind that rivals it is Uncharted 3. 

Moral of the story, don`t judge until you fully see I guess.

I'm still finding it hard to get over the fact that Nintendo didn't show any first party games for their new home consoles.  At best, it might stop all this shit about Nintendo not caring about 3rd parties.

You know what, I think the Nintendo WiiU seems to be centered around this site. Even Kotaku is tame and people are hyped. Given they actually have trailers on hand. 

I changed my mind, I am firm believer it will be decent console, and maybe I should stop judging based on the conference, and actualy material.

Honestly the console and the controller itself is very promising. (Kinda wish it had analog sticks instead of the circle pads). I think the thing that let people down was the naming of the console Wii-U. Kind of Silly but overall i don't really care as long as the games come.



NINTENDO

nintendo forever . . .

If you imagine the gaming market as a single dimensional market, where on one side you have "casual" gamers and on the other side you have "core" gamers (a simplistic view of things) in the previous generation you could say that Nintendo focused on the casual end of the spectrum to the mid-point. In this generation I would say Nintendo is focusing on the casual end of the spectrum to the "75%" point.

Casual----------------------------------------Core
( Wii )
(Wii U)

While most games would see this as a more inclusive system, and being an improvement over the Wii, many of the graphics-whore elitests may see this as a thumb in their eye because it seems like Nintendo decided that they were the only people Nintendo decided to exclude.



I think we just expected way too much. We wanted Nintendo to blow us away with the new console and the controller and loads of games including new Mario, Zelda, Metroid, Wii Sports plus atleast 10 new IP's and a million 3rd party exclusives, while still managing to show off tons of stuff for 3ds and somehow having lots of games for DS and Wii as well.

Once the dust has settled I think (most) people will look at it in a different and perhaps a more positive way.

 

Edit:

I've only checked IGN and they were very positive about it after testing the controller and some demos. Hopefully we will get more hands-on impressions from people who have actually experienced the new console.



It sound like their selling you a Wii HD, with a PSVita for a controller. I'm not gonna bash it because I missed the conference but I don't find it very impressive. I'll have to wait and see.

Gameplay wise it looks like it could do some cool things, but hte more I think about it the more it looks like a big DS the top screen is your TV and the tough screen is in your hands.
