Nintendo gamers, would you even buy Black ops 3 if it came to the Wii U?

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Nintendo gamers, would you even buy Black ops 3 if it came to the Wii U?

Nope. The PS4/XB1 versions would be better, so if I was interested in buying it, I'd buy one of those versions. I like Nintendo and all, but I'm not going to spend $60 on an inferior version of a game just for console politics.

Agreed. I appreciate that the Wii U version of Black Ops II has some cool GamePad features, but in general the game performed worse than other versions.

So I'd rather go for the version that plays and performs best.

Now, if Nintendo worked with Activision to create a unique title - maybe a spin-off like Big Red One - that took advantage of the Wii U hardware, I'd be all over it.

Or Nintendo could stop making hardware that's maybe 5-6 years behind their competetion? Third parties aren't going to give any one of three hugely preferntial treatement like making an entirely new game for just one hardware vendor from a huge IP like COD because the company has slapped a screen on a controller. 

Sony and MS I'm sure would love to have their own console exclusive COD built specifically for their machines too. That isn't how the business works and if Nintendo was expecting that they really are naive. 



I'm really surprised that the Wii U didn't even get the last gen water down version at least. To answer your question i wouldnt buy but thats because I own the other 2 consoles

I don't play COD. But assuming I'm a fan, for this thread, no. The game would be gimped in functions & features. Like voice chat, or modes, or DLC. It's happens basically every time on Nintendo's systems. I bought Shovel Knight on PS4. Because I just assume all games will be inferior on a Nintendo system, in some way. Nintendo wants to do what they do. I have no choice but to disagree and give my money elsewhere.

Nintendo is stubborn and does what it wants.  There is no use getting bothered by it.  

I wouldn't buy this game if it came to the Wii U though.  Even if I were into the franchise, I would play it cheap and get Black Ops II.

I've switched over to Splatoon for my go-to shooting game. I'm sure if porting is cheap, Acti-Blizz will put next CoD games on NX regardless. AB is not leaving any stone unturned.

No, I wouldn't want Activision to waste my time. If they made World at War 2, I'd consider.

Save for this CoD: love the setting.

I understand that, Soundwave. I understand that huge publishers like EA, Activision, and Ubisoft need to maximize profits by catering to the lowest common denominator. I know that investing in a relatively underpowered platform like Wii U would be a waste of time and resources. I'm not suggesting that Nintendo should get a console exclusive Call of Duty or Far Cry or Dragon Age because the GamePad sports a built-in screen.

This is just me daydreaming, innocently, about a small project along the lines of Crystal Chronicles or Dead Space: Extraction. As someone who owns a PS4, XBO, and Wii U, I would like it if publishers made more games that took advantage of each system's unique properties.
