I'm really hoping that if the Wii U does in fact get all these big 3rd party games like Bioshock 3 and Assassin's Creed 3, that the developers actually try to push the system and enhance the games a bit, rather than just deliver straight ports from the current-gen builds. Because if that's all they do, I'd probably have to hold off on getting a Wii U for awhile unless Nintendo showcases a serious killer launch app at E3 that demonstrates exactly what the system is capable of.
i would imagine that if you have multiple systemss, then the wii u versions of all these games would need better graphics and a few extras. remember that soul caliber game the GC that had Link? that was a good extra!
Yeah that was cool, but the game itself was the same across all three because all 3 platforms were essentially the same. It's up to the developers to put the extra effort into making the Wii U versions of multiplatform titles look better and take advantage of the hardware, because you know as soon as it's released there's gonna be all kinds of comparisons made on every website out there about which version is the best looking... and if the Wii U versions turn out to be no better looking than those on 6+ year old consoles, it's really going to hurt the system's image right off the bat, especially with the core gamers.
Again, we gotta see what Nintendo's going to show at E3, because it's up to them to set the bar high for their own system. People complained that 3rd parties put out nothing but dance games, minigames and party games on the Wii... but remember, that's because Nintendo set the standard for what sells on the system by releasing tons of those types of games themselves, so 3rd parties were just following their lead. If Nintendo doesn't come out with some really impressive stuff for launch that really flexes the Wii U's muscle, then 3rd parties won't be challenged to do any better than what they are currently doing on PS360 and PC.
