Forums - Nintendo Discussion - So Are You Convinced On WiiU? **UPDATED with launch window games list**

Are you convinced to buy the WiiU?

YESS...especially after this E3! 210 31.16%
 
NO..I need moar! 196 29.08%
 
NOO NOOO *Darth Vader's Episode VI one* 178 26.41%
 
Maybe.... 90 13.35%
 
Total:674

I don´t understand why Bioware makes only Mass Effect 3 for the WiiU? They should do at least the second as well. You can´t appreciate the game fully if you have not played its predecessors.

Nothing about this presentation makes me think that the Wii U will have a lifespan of 5 years. So not interested.

What kind of nonsense is this? We already know the Wii U will have a five year lifespan. Consider:

Sony always does what Nintendo does, but doubles it.

Sony's systems have a ten year lifespan.

Ergo, Nintendo's systems must have a five year lifespan.

Otherwise, Sony won't have a bullet point to talk about anymore.

Simple logic, really.

Ths has nothing to do with Sony. I am not a Sony fan. Dont have a PS3, dont have a Vita. Do have a Wii.  Yet lifespan of a console is important. I did not say 10 years I said 5. Look at the Wii.  Year 5 started November 2011 so buy the time the Wii completes its fifth year its replacement will be on the shelves.  By that time the Wii U had already been announced and the Wii was dieing in the market and the Wii took off when it was released.  It doesnt look like that will happen with the Wii U.  So a couple years from now Nintendo will be back at E3 with the "Wii for All" or the "Wii made a mistake".



Its libraries that sell systems not a single game.

So, I surprisingly had two friends of mine yesterday say they were going to buy a Wii U at launch. Both are 30 and not huge Nintendo fan boys (though both owned Game Cubes and do enjoy Nintendo's first party offerings).

First one, like me, has no kids and a decent disposable income - he thought Zombi-U looked good and some of the controller applications and the promise of future first party titles were enough for him to make his decision.

The second is actually trading in his X-Box 360 towards it. He recently upgraded his gaming rig and feels that any third party game worth getting he would rather get on the PC, and he never owned a Wii. He figures the Wii U is a good chance to catch up on Nintendo franchises he missed on the Wii and is a huge fan of the Aliens franchise and of Zombie games (Left 4 Dead and Resident Evil are two of his favorite franchises) and thinks the controller uses they demonstrated are interesting.

Just thought this was funny, since most of us (including me) thought Nintendo sold the Wii U so poorly. I should probably point out that neither of them watched any conferences, but just watched some E3 high light trailers here and there.



For me is not a yes or no question, just when. The only way im gonna be able to play my favorite games (Smash, Zelda, mario, metroid, mario kart, donkey kong.....) is on a Nintendo console; So Ill be getting one. Dunno if this Xmas though, or until next year. It depends on the whole line up that will be available I guess. And some of those 3rd party games look great.

Good thing I havent buy games in a long time, so Ill gladly enjor batman, and ACIII on the WiiU,

I have an eerie feeling that stock holders mess up a lot of the potential a console have: they have all these different opinions on what the company should do, without truly knowing anything about the business!

Speaking of which, have you seen the CNN article thread? http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/thread.php?id=144119

Pretty funny. I guess for stakeholders the presentation was good, but for the market Nintendo promised to target, they are missing thet mark. Everything else was ok I guess.

That is pretty hilarious! and sad... Ninty fucked up bad =P hopefully they got enough time to do some damage control... why the hell didn't they rename it?! -.-

Stock holders will cheer until the casual market will totally ignore the new system, and then the stock holders will cry like babies and flee Nintendo, who will tank and go 3rd party... That's a bleak future that is.

Furthermore, I think VGChartz should add a "Like"-button.

And if Nintendo doesn't wake the fuck up, it's a very likely future. They are officially stupid in my eyes.

I wanna call 'em stupid as well - but we gotta remember Wii; the whole gaming business thought it would fail, and it became the 3rd most sold home console ever. took them to the top for the first time in almost 2 decades...

Noooo, but you and I believed it would do well, and we were right. The games were right, Wii Sports was good! So was TP, and everything was well planned.

Now, what do we have??? Nintendoland... I am ashamed to be a Nintendo fan, honestly. How can their strategy ever work with moves like that. I mean, Wii Fit U is borderline acceptable, but Nintendoland?

Talk about alienating a market. They are fucked and I don't think they will dig their way out. At this point I think I've lost all faith in them.



Need more info on online network functionality. The miiverse explenation in the nintendo direct and press conference didnt go into more detail as far as achievements tied to your mii or friends interactions during games. Waiting for clarification before im 100% sold.

That is interesting and makes some sense when you think about it. Most games in the future will be multiplat or on the PC, but Nintendo's first party promises at least give the Wii U some strength over it's competitors.
