Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Will the new Zelda sell better on wii u or switch?

Well, the WiiU version had a production restriction due to the Switch version, that was a little unfair but on the bright side they will be almost the same, except that the Switch has a better complement (graphics/ audio). It still a WiiU native game, I may buy it on that console.

I truly don't think that Nintendo will need to produce more than 1 million copies of the WiiU version. This is a system seller for the Switch, and it will do far better on that system.

obviously on switch, Nintendo fans can't wait to let go of their WiiU and spend 300 bucks on Nintendo's shiny new device.
That's always something Nintendo can't count on, their fans just don't have any principles or self respect.

Besides Nintendo will never produce more of the WiiU version than the switch's, so It just can't sell more.

Lol i guess you have high Friends in thé modération to not bé banned for that

 

Youre not exactly wrong though, especially on Nintendo forcing WiiU version failure



Predictions for end of 2014 HW sales:

 PS4: 17m   XB1: 10m    WiiU: 10m   Vita: 10m

 

Between being so late in the Wii U;s lifespan and plenty of Wii U owners willing or happy to upgrade to the Switch version the Wii U version is not going to reach 2 million.

As THE premiere launch game for the Switch, and one of very few launch games altogether, it will set sales charts on fire on the newer system. Practically everyone will get it at launch, and it will have legs on a system with a growing install base which will be far greater than the Wii U's ever was.

Even if Nintendo were to make the same number of units for the Wii U as for the Switch the latter would outsell the former by a considerable amount.

What can I say, I'm a lovable asshole.

I just don't get why people are so easily swayed.  Even Nintendo said themselves that they wouldn't kill the WiiU early because they didn't want to damage their releationship with their customers, then they did it anyway and everybody is absolutely fine.

We're basically saying "I don't mind spending 300 bucks on a console that will be supported for 3 years". This is outrageous!

Maybe I would actually be ok if the Switch was an improvment over the WiiU, instead of being the same console but portable... But I'm not spending 300 bucks again, and buying 70 bucks controllers , I'm not repeating the same mistake. This thing has no third party support, Nintendo is still not bringing the games we asked for and it's still too expensive for what it is (Miyamoto himself said the WiiU was too expensive, and they just repeat the same mistake)

Nintendo may not have learn from their mistakes, but I did. I'm out of this crap.

Wii u came out 4.5 years ago though? I don't mind buying the switch because there was plenty of games I liked on the Wii u so I got my money's worth. Zelda is a big enough franchise for me to upgrade to a new console for end off. GTA is another game I would upgrade to a new system for. Simples really.

Is there really a need to insult every Nintendo fan out there?

Yes. I own every piece of Nintendo hardware

So what? You don't represent any nintendo fan here. Your POV means shit here, you are not going dictate what is good or acceptable in a general sense. No need to say how your arguments and statements are pretty much flawed.

Get better and try harder next time.

Except Nintendo actually supported the Wii U for quite a while. In 2015 we still got titles such as Splatoon, Super Mario Maker and Xenoblade Chronicles. And in 2016 we got Twilight Princess HD, Pokkén Tournament and Paper Mario: Color Splash. And this year it will still get Breath of the Wild, the most ambitious Nintendo game ever developped.  

It's funny Sony constantly gets a pass for dropping support of the Vita after less than two years on the market, but somehow Nintendo gets a lot of flack for the Wii U despite the fact that they actually supported it for 5 years.
