How dare he have an opinion on anything that doesn,t say it is all sunshine and fucken candy land for Nintendo. Shame on him, stone him.

Hang on, let me get my pitch fork and torch...LET'S BURN HIS ASS!!

 

Btw, has Nintendo announced a date yet?



No but the've announced a date at which they will announce a date. One step at a time folks.

I've always hated this guy. He is indeed my polar opposite.



Ask stefl1504 for a sig, even if you don't need one.

Adam Sessler is one of those guys that dislikes anything that is released by Nintendo and likes anything that has blood in it so it's hard to take him seriously.

Of course it's coming out this year. If Nintendo needed to delay the launch because they needed more time on games like Pikmin HD, er, I mean 3... New Super Mario Bros HD, er, I mean U... and We're Too Lazy To Make Full Games For These Franchises So We Made You This Instead, er, I mean Nintendo Land... then they'd be laughed out of the industry.

It would seem odd that a delay would be caused by polished up demoware showing off the capabilities of the system.



And here I thought this guy knew his stuff, though that could just be because he looked smarter by comparison to the even stupider Morgan Webb.

I don't get where he gets the idea that Nintendo will delay the console, and I don't see how it would benefit Nintendo to release the console early next year as opposed to right before the holiday season.

"Stimulate the industry"? Sure, like Sony and MS's new consoles will. This is the predecessor to a console that completely changed the game and brought in new gamers. If any console can stimulate the industry, it's Wii U.

Also, I don't see how so many seem to doubt the selling power of a console that will have Wii Fit, NSMB, Dragon Quest, and the inevitable Zelda, Smash Bros, and Mario Kart on it. At least he achknowledges he could be wrong on one of his points..

He's dead wrong on the not launching this year part, but he could be right about the Wii U not necessarily turning around a sluggish game market.

It's basically just another 360/PS3 type product, just with Nintendo franchises on it. I don't know if it's necessarily a game changer. Maybe people will go nuts for Nintendo Land, but it's just as likely the reaction could be "well I already have a PS3/360, why do I need another system that has many of the same games?".

I never paid too much attention to him, but i thought he had a better reputation than that? One of the more balanced journalists who wasn't an industry tool and who was willing to give Nintendo a fair shake.

Same here. He was always a better, more descript reviewers. 

Hearing something like this from him is almost unbelievable. Its as if he has lost his mind in time out of the spotlight when he left G4. It could just be something his current employer paid him to say. I hope its the latter.

Luckily the '720/PS4' will also be 360/PS3 type products, just without Nintendo franchises on it.



To be honest, a spring 2013 release would not be bad.

Nintendo could avoid direct competition with Halo 4 and the new PS3 model.

Also It would give more time for developers to finish unannounced projects for Wii U.
