New gen, same old story. Western devs are not going to compete with Nintendo and their IPs, we get some (but few) good third party games and the normal awesome nintendo games. Seeing what nintendo did with Bayonetta and ninja gaiden, I believe nintendo understood there is no real reason to believe western devs will ever see their systems as viable platforms for their AAA titles anymore, and so they most likely will focus on this kind of deals with Japanese devs.


That is why I think they got monster hunter and dragon quest so early. Iwata probably expects them to start coming up with excuses. Well it is their funeral. They cannot rely on xbox and playstation alone to keep them afloat forever. Development costs are going to get higher and higher and the install bases for those two are barely sustainable for some of those companies now. At least if they aren't on wii u they can't blame nintendo when they start to tank.



One more thing to complete my year = senran kagura localization =D

A lot of western companies have nothing to fear of not being on a Nintendo console. The best option would be to expand to Nintendo, but if technology wise they find it not to call for it then so be it.

I'm not worried. Wii U hasn't been out that long so I don't think it is time to worry yet. And as far as the video games awards go, I didn't watch it this year. But I've watched it before and Nintendo is pretty much ignored at the video game awards.


Wait until the third parties start taking sides. Again, this is Nintendo, they always lose the third party war, so their first party be up to the task.


Yeah, I know. The third parties always take the side of the other companies.

May i point out that there were no PS4/Xbox720 games announced aswell?


Thats because E3 will be the point where they unveil a lot. The first two quarters are where the last top exclusives for both consoles are going to be coming out. It's settled the new consoles are on their way with third party support behind them for fourth quarter next year, just wait. The Wii U will be the companion console in most cases with gamers in my eyes.


My point exactly. Its on E3 that we will get loads of game announcements for the new consoles, including the Wii U.

Some big multiplatform games were announced today, new MGS, new DS. But they're all PCS360. Why not the WiiU? Its a brand new system, said to be by some to be more capable than PS360, so why doesn't these new games have a WiiU version?

Its something I don't understand, Dark Souls 2 on WiiU wouldve been a big incentive for me to get it on WiiU. It would've worked awesome with the GamePad I think.

What WiiU games are there for 2013 outside Wonderful 101, Pikmin 3 and Bayonetta 2? Another Mario?

It seems the biggest multiplatform games releasing next year(starting with Bioshock) are skipping Nintendos new system.


The Wii U was doomed from the start - small user base, roughly same power as the existing consoles and, unlike the PS3 which can sort of be circumvented, it's always going to be a pain to develop for due to it's instance of having a second screen.
Devs are left with three options:
1) Make a good Wii U port. Issues are that takes a lot of time and money for a very small market (less then 1 mill vs 140 million excluding PC users)
2) Make a meh port where the second screen is used for a pretty crappy function like a permanent map. Considering the architecture of the Wii U and it's performance, this still takes a lot of time and money for a small market
3)The most likely option - don't bother developing for the Wii U and work with the idea that most existing wii U owners will have either a 360 or PS3 already and therefore can buy the game for that platform. Saves time and money for the dev.

So far Wii U is the most uninspiring console from the last 3 gens for me.

I would literally not give a damn if it wasn't for (3D!) Mario, Zelda and Metroid. Especially Metroid; A new Prime is worth buying the new console for. But overall, that's just about it.


Are you talking Nintendo three gens because the GameCube and n64 did nothing inspiring in themselves and sure as heck the Sony and mircosoft have done nothing inspiring.


Maybe I could answer you if your sentance made sense. I suppose I'll just guess what your actual point was.

 

Saturn/PSOne/N64

Dreamcast/PS2/Gamecube/Xbox

Wii/X360/PS3

 

What I am saying is that the Wii U is the least inspiring console out of all of those. Now to check if your either from Guatamala, or under 12 years old...

 

EDIT: Ok, your 18. You better not be English speaking first language. Oh, and just because so few people can write out proper English these days doesn't excuse it.
