That Sony has better third party support than Nintendo has nothing to do with it that other comapanys also delay games like Nintendo! Sony is just in the better position because of their third party support.

its not "sony" that is in a better postion. Its the custormers. The Ps4 owners are in a better position, the wii u owners are poor.

I think thats because it underwent alot of changes. Not really because they wanted to hide it.

But they are hiding bascily from moment they announced it year ago and they didn't said anything yet about. They definatly want to hide it.

More like they didnt want to show off the game until they knew the direction they wanted to go with it.

They should have release it in 2015.
The only excuse for 2016 was the 30th anniversary.

But do you want to know why? Because it doesn't matter how many times they delay and lie in our faces, people will still defend them, regardless of how bad are their decisions. The problem is not Nintendo making bad decisions, but those supporting those mistakes

I agree with this. Look, I love Nintendo, I think it's the best videogame company out there, but there are choices that are just bad. They lied to us about Zelda, they delayed the game TWO YEARS. And now they're telling us that it's because "they need to improve the game". That's a lie, we know it, it's just to launch with the NX. I bought the 2016 delay, but I can't possibly buy this delay. Iwata himself said that the game was in the final stages of development, one month ago! This is just unjustifiable. They're keeping the game for themselves. They're willingly delaying the game, and they don't give a damn about WiiU owners right now. We supported them when almost anyone has bought the console (I mean, 13 M is not anyone, but it's nothing in the console market). And this is Nintendo's "thanks for your support". And people are defending them? Well, fuck you Nintendo. Thanks for pissing the fandom which support you these last 3 years. 

Yeah, it make sense business-wise, but sometimes I'd like them to do something which doesn't involve being a pain in the ass with Nintendo fans. Because they're constantly trying to bulshitting us. And I feel like I'm in a sado-masochist relationship right now. 

The best way to react to this is to start thinking how to not get yourself into this position again with Nintendo. For example, I'm not going to buy their system just for Smash and Mario Kart anymore and hope the usual home consoles games like a exclusive Zelda or a big 3D adventure Mario will eventually arrive. This didn't happen in Wii U. The trust for these great games to arrive in any Nintendo home console no matter the situation they find themselves is gone. 

I personally learn that Nintendo will not release ambitious single player games I'm use to expecting if the sales are horrible within its second holidays sales so I've learned to do the following:

1. Wait for the sales of NX after its second holiday sales. If its significantly less than 20 million, Nintendo will treat it like the Wii U.

2. Do not assume it will get the single player Mario Zelda, Metroid, etc game like the N64-Wii did. Wait for those games to release first. Don't buy the system hoping these will arrive because they used to.

2013-2017 Damn Reggie

And people attack MS for bad PR statements, really happy I didn't pick up a Wii-U and I really don't see how Nintendo expects 800k units to sell during the next year, who do they think are their customer for those units? Casual gamers who were really really late in moving from the Wii to the Wii-U? Die hard Nintendo fans.... who didn't buy the system in the first 4 years of it's life and have choosen now, now that the big N have shown zero interest in the system or it's fans... now is the time to buy it?

Unless NX is a console with the gimmick of VR which includes a fleshlight attachment or else NX is the code name for a Nintendo Store coming to PC/PS4 and X1 I really don't see how it's going to make any impact in the gaming market as it stands right now, especially dropping mid generation and no where near the holiday season, insanity.



Fancy hearing me on an amateur podcast with friends gushing over one of my favourite games? https://youtu.be/1I7JfMMxhf8

To make NX a big thing.

Dirtying Image lol? Backstabbing Wii U owners lol?

NX is more important to Nintendo future then a few annoyed people.

the "few annoyed people", known as Wii U owners, are nintendos loyaliest and hardcore fanbase. Fucking them wont help nintendo, believe me ;)

I am a Wii U owner and a nintendo loyaliest but even I can distinguish between short term gratification vs long term gratification.

I was one of the people who said hell they should cancel the Wii U version. NX needs everything up it's sleeve to bolt out of the gates. 

What good will releasing Zelda U on a dead console do fo the future of Nintendo and me enjoying more of their games?  If NX tanks NIntendo are pretty much done dusted adios. 

 



 

 

to give NX a chance at reaching 14M.

I'm totally fine with their 3D Mario game since it's my 2nd favourite 3D mario ever XD. I didn't buy the WiiU until I find a decent sale (50% off) and MK8 was out. But the way they treated the WiiU/3DS consumers the last year is shameful. I'm happy with the console, I enjoyed it a lot, I have a decent library of games, but this year, with the Zelda delay, being assholes with the WiiU owners; doing a Paper Mario nobody asked for, AGAIN; doing a Metroid Prime nobody asked for... Really, they are totally unaware of what their fandom is asking. Or they're just simply arrogant people who want to educate their fandom, which is worse. I'm inclined to believe the 2nd option. The problem for me is that it's Nintendo or not at all. Because I really don't enjoy most of the other software output (except some exceptions, like Bioshock, Dark Souls, Deus Ex or Mass Effect). But they're lying to me. I don't feel like I want to be in this position anymore. But the other option is quit the gaming world unless the industry changes massively and it starts making games of genres I love (platformers being the worst offender). I described it yesterday as a love-hate and a dependance relationship. And we know that sucks. 



Damn so many crybabies...Not even FF XV have/had this many...
