[GamesIndustry] Developers Underwhelmed by Capabilities of Wii U - Page 3

It's up to the developers. We saw what the Wii could do: Super Mario Galaxy 1 and 2 looked stunning and ran at 60 fps constantly. Just because the hardware isn't up to snuff doesn't mean the console will flop.

Yeah, but I think Nintendo are becoming increasingly gimmicky lately, Fair enough the DS and Wii brought new UI that actually worked quite well, but 3DS (3D burns my eyes lol) and Wii U (Controlling the game with tablet - *** what are you supposed to look at the tablet or the screen? dont think its going to work too well as a controller, hard buttons are bettter) are taking it a bit too far and I dont think they will do as well.

I dont think it will flop because Nintendo have such a good brand and can make great games, but its disappointing because they could have done much better.

I haven't liked the idea of a Wii U since I saw it at E3 last year (I think that was the worst reveal of a console in the history of the world). Everyone was so excited because it was going to get 3rd party games..but the only ones it actually said were coming to WiiU were games that would be over a year old by the time Wii U came out. That didn't excite me very much.

And everyone keeps saying that the Wii did soooo well and outsold Xbox360 and PS3 last generation, but they always "forget" to mention that the Wii was HALF the price of the other 2 competitors! Of course it would have sold more.

This whole console seems like Nintendo just trying to upgrade into HD. People also say graphical power doesn't matter (something I find kind of odd to say on OCN?? smile.gif ) but I would strongly disagree. Graphical power and console capabilities are what bring in 3rd party developers, something that Nintendo has really lacked. I am not in to games like Zelda or Mario, so Nintendo has had nothing to offer me since the N64 went out of style.

Will it sell?? Probably! We at OCN know better than anyone how companies nowadays rely on the uninformed to buy almost anything that they market well enough. Plus they still have a very loyal group of fans that would pay anything they charge to play the new Mario and Zelda games. But unless I see some serious changes in the upcoming 6 months or so till release, this thing is a big bust in my book.

Hmm... thought the wii u was going to be more powerful that the ps3 and 360 in terms of graphics. The wii u is looking more and more like a glorified hub for porting iphone games onto.

I thought the Wii U was considerably more powerful than 360 and PS3? What is he talking about?

Hope to god this is false, I want my Smash Bros. in full 1080P at 60 FPS! (Like how I play it on Dolphin)

Oh yeah, and an online system that works.

Nintendo will probably have a financial success here.

But an overall success in the eyes of the gamer community or even in comparison to the wii? lolno.

The wii was the most profitable flop in history. A large percentage of Wii consoles quickly become doorstops after purchase because as listed, there were less than 10 really successful games, few of which had any real staying power, and those only because they were riding the dead horse nostalgia wave of the long by-gone mario era. People bought the basic assortment, Mario, Super Smash, Sports (came with) and maybe a few others and thats it.

COmpared to 360, who cost a lot more, sold a fair amount less consoles, but massively more titles overall, and PER console, PER year. The 360 was probably a much bigger success financially. 60 million consoles + signifcant more titles (that were more costly) per console + xbox live - RROD Warranty costs compares pretty favorably to The Wii's 95 million consoles and paltry title turnover with no online service.

The PS3 is great, but it's adoption was a lot slower than 360, cost a hell of a lot more per console (even after people paid $600 for each) and didn't have a piad service for a long time, so I doubt it made as much money.

Over 95,000,000 Wiis were sold as opposed to 62-65 million PS3's/360's.

True but thats because they were cheap. A lot of them just sit and collect dust I know that because my one is, the majority of my mates ones, the only one I know of that is regularly used is my Grandad's and Grandma's one.. Says a lot really! rolleyes.gif

Exactly.

But this will likely mean that once again, 1st party titles will be the only draw to the system.

But this shouldn't be the case. Developers need to start focusing on the gameplay and story that give a game its substance, and worry about how pretty they can make it last. But hey, I'm a gamer, not an art lover, and thats just me.

And this time while the new PS and Xbox bring revolutionary new eye candy and crazy hardware, the wii U will be one of the few affordable consoles. So with an up and down economy, the wii U is looking like it will offer what the others simply can't, a price most average familys can afford without having to wait 2 years or put themselves into credit card debt...

Thats as far as I'm going with quoting. The wii U will be a success hardware wise simply because they will use hardware thats matured and cheap. It will do what they need it to do and it will be in a price range all of its own.

Most have either a PS3 or 360, but a lot of those people also own a wii...
