Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Wii misses out again!

mowe said:
Yeah, this happens ALL the time. Until Wii proves itself as a viable hardcore gaming platform, great games will keep going HD exclusive.

 

Disregard all the Nintendo franchises that had been a hit, as developers say "Only Nintnedo games sell on Nintendo consoles".  How can a console proove itself i fno one released a REAL AAA game to test the waters, So far there has been shit fuck all good. It has either been low budget cash in or a cheap port from xbox/ps2.

Also look at the AAA ports that have come to Wii, RE4 has sold well, better then the on-rails crap UC, and it is a 4th port of the damn game.

agreed and it s not just super hero sandboxes the wiis missing out on i just dont get why the wii has sold so much HW yet, i guess wii owners just like go kart racing and exercising games just look how bad X men Origins did on its opening week compared to the HDs

@norlead wat about Fight Night Rd4 for the HDs its looking like it will be the best boxing game ever

 

 

Do you purposely write such childish comments? I mean, you really think there's only karting and fitness? It's a bit stupid really. Just enjoy your own games and stop with the pointless aghast and ignorant comments. It would be nice to see something intelligent from your keyboard instead of misinformed and glib posts that I see everywhere.

There's so many genres on the Wii that appeal to lots of different people. This is why it sells.

 

wheres the childish comments in that post the wii is missing alot of genres that the HDs have besides sandboxs wheres the TPS, Sandbox, Racing with real licensed cars and other i wont get into in my opinion thats y i think everybodys buying one only to play its 1st party games and right now its current top selling is a go kart racing game and a exersicing game

how am i misinformed go look at the weekly charts all wiis tops selling games are kart and fit and sports that comes wit it wenever theres a game thats a multi plat for all 3 consoles the wiis is the worst selling i used X men as a ex. there are many others about 98% of multis all sell better on consoles that have less user base than the wiis Y is this?

i think the wiis libary appeals to a certain group of people not everybody while the HDs libary has multiple good games in every genre that soounds like a console thats 4 every1 to me

also the wii misses out on another thing the HDs get good games like Gears Uncharted MGS Halo KZ GTA Dead Rising Mass Effect COD Moderen Warfare and others see 2 or 3 or more sequels per gen while Nentendo recently only releases 1 Kart 1 SSBB 1 Mario 1 Zelda per gen

Galaxy, Zelda, and Metriod where relesed years ago no sequels by now are these games 1 and done? also i think and history shows us that the Wii wont see sequels to SSBB or Kart

"It would be nice to see something intelligent from your keyboard instead of misinformed and glib posts that I see everywhere."  if u dont like my posts dont read them u have a choice

 

 

It is obvious that you are quite a young person.

Sometimes you have to respond to daft posts, not out of anger or annoyance - I'm far too old for that - but to set the record straight. I wonder if you really consider what you are typing. For example, it is childish and ignorant to suggest that the Wii gamers only play Kart and Fitness games. They are overwhelmingly massive sellers, for sure, but that doesn't mean there aren't plenty of other popular genres on the console. 

I should also like to point out that I didn't call YOU ignorant or childish, but many of your posts. It's like you have an agenda that blinds you to the complexity of the market. There's room for debate, of course, but you need to be a little more nuanced in your approach if you don't want people to come back with fairly abusive comments. If you do, continue with your style of posting and continue to receive flames and swift put-downs. I'd suggest acknowledging your mistakes in your message (others have already pointed to flaws in your comments) and then try to think out what you type before typing it.

I think that what people call the 'core' audience on HD systems is more complex and casual than people tend to say. For example, in the UK the main demographic for Halo-like games are casual gamers between 14-30. At the school where I work many students have 360s but don't play them frequently, but they do play Halo (amongst others). There are obvious committed gamers in that group, but many of them only buy a few games a year. Obviously, this is a different casual demographic than the Wii version, which is slightly more fractured across game genre, gender and age range.

 

u could be write about me putting down the wii in a childish and ignorant way ill admit that maybe iam a bit ignorant about the Wii and everything that it represents but ill never lie in my posts ill post how i feel about the situation on hand regardless if it sounds silly or ignorant  thats me a ignorant person but i ll never lie about it

 

u may think im young but ill tell u that im old enough to know that Nintendo is not and never will be for me



                                                             

                                                                      Play Me

And I am old enough to know that Nintendo is a Godsend to the video game industry.

That, of course, is your decision.

I think its a closed-minded emotional reaction, but it's still your choice.

Most of the posters on here will not doubt that you say how and what you feel. That is what is being criticised, I reckon. It makes your comments a little irrational.

Anyway, I don't mean to get at you so... smile!



Yes.

I was just looking at videos for Infamous and Prototype, both games look amazing and i plan to get both but, where is the Wii's superhero snadbox game?????? I have all 3 systems now but at my core i'm a hardcore Nintendo fan. Such a shame i haven't played my Wii in months.

Well the odds of Wii getting sandbox games is slim and none because there isn't a demand for them on the Wii.


Also why would developers invest money on a expensive sandbox game when they can easily make a party game that will sell more copies?

if you like games on PS3 or 360, buy the games and play them on it. If you don't like the games on Wii, sell it.

What does "a hardcor Nintendo fan" actually mean? Also, I don't know how a game can be judged by watching the videos...

 

First of all i would like to say i'm sorry for creating a flame war that was not my orginal intention, second i like games on all 3 systems that why i buy games on all three systems. Now i understand that the Wii is not the graphic powerhouse that the 360 and PS3 is but in the "last-gen" systems most games came out for all three anyway and pretty much everything came out for the market leader at the time except first party games which is a no brainer. 

As far as the "I'm a hardcore Nintendo fan" comment i made, i didn't mean to be taking in a fanboyish manner, i simply meant that I really like Nintendo, more than i like Sony or Microsoft so i wish they could appeal to everyone. Also i have more games on my Wii than the other two so why would i sell it. i guess i didn't write out my point well enough to create a discussion i created a flame thread and i didn't mean to.

I just want to run around a city like i used to on Spider-man 2 and Hulk Ultimate Destrution on Gamecube they were fun.



 

  

 

Punch Out!!!



Wii has the Conduit.



Wow, The Conduit and Punch Out? I hope I don't twist my ankle running to store for those.

I'm sure those are/will be fine games but the Wii is best for casual gamers. I need games that offer more immersive game play. That's a huge reason why people buy HD consoles.
