@QuintZiel 13m Ubisoft: 'We have reduced plans for WiiU following the soft launch and we expect price cuts given sales and the current, weaker yen.'

 

Quint is a Staff member of N1ntendo.nl and is at e3...Even Ubisoft, the most relying partner of Nintendo is reducing their plans. 

 

In other news...Deus EX Revolution went Multiplatform

Yup, Deus Ex came out a while ago. I can understand the holding back on the Wii U, the sales have been horrible and no one seems to buy 3rd party games.

We need people to buy 3rd party games so we can support Ubisoft.

No surprises there.

If people don`t buy games, devs have no reason to invest a lot on that console. If gamers buy their games, they will keep making them more.
With the low install base, no wonder Deus EX isn`t Wii U exclusive.

Don't give up on us now Ubisoft, if Ubisoft gives up than i doubt we will see many third party devs reach for the WiiU, even less than now.

Hopefully they show us some WiiU watch dogs footage, i want to preorder but i just hope it doesn't have frame rate issues like AC3. This would be a great time to advertise the WiiU, common Nintendo show us what you got.

Not surprised tbh.

Third part and nintendo haven't been good for a long time.

That's why I suggest everyone either have a different console or pc in addition to wii u

That's really sad news, considering how much love I have for my Wii U. It's clear that Nintendo dropped the ball, and broke some promises.

 

I had hoped that they would turn things around at E3...

Oh, I am pre-ordering Watch Dogs on Wii U as soon as I can. I can't decide if I will pre-order from Toys R Us or Walmart yet. Walmart is closer and offers no-cost shipping... but Toys R Us has always been my go-to store for pre-orders...

 

Anyway! Yep. Buying Watch Dogs on Wii U. Done.

Yep. You preorder online and request in-store pickup for free shipping. I hate GameStop and wish them to die off. Immediately.

Urrrrrggggggggg things are getting worse for Wii U, I tell you, Nintendo have blown 2 chances to wow us and get in front now, the first was with the almost 1 year headstart on the other consoles and the second was with that aweful f**k up of a conference Microsoft had last month, what are you doing, my Wii U is gameless still.
