#80915 What are you buying on launch day?

Posted by CaptainFalco311 on 26 May 2012 - 02:00 PM

With the launch of a new console, there's always a flood of games, accessories, hardware, controllers, and just general stuff put out to cash in on day-one buyers. Given that a large percentage of the members of this forum will be buying a Wii U on day one (including myself), I thought this would be a fun thread.

Feel free to copy my format below:

  • 1 Wii U (in black, if available)
  • Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 (if available); if not available Ghost Recon Online
  • Pikmin 3 (if available)
  • Wii U Play (probably going to be a pack-in title, but whatever)
  • Assassin's Creed III
  • Whatever crazy-good launch titles Nintendo puts out
  • Whatever crazy-good launch titles third parties put out
  • Killer Freaks From Outer Space
  • If there's a new Classic Controller they put out, I might pick that up
  • A headset (if the U isn't compatible with my current headset)
Other Stuff
  • A $20 eShop gift card
  • Energy drinks and lots of sweets to keep me awake

#80708 Nintendo slightly updates Wii U Logo

The dark blue adds a more mature feel to it. Me gusta. (Now all they need is a black console available on launch day...)

#80087 Info that makes Android Rumor Plausable

Posted by CaptainFalco311 on 22 May 2012 - 09:49 AM

It is NOT going to be Android-based. So many vulnerabilities that would be present, it's not even funny. If Nintendo doesn't want their console to get hacked a week after it comes out, they just can't have it be Android-based.

#55081 Should the Wii U Games include DLC?

Nintendo not having DLC in the Wii U would be the equivalent of kicking themselves in the genitals while chewing on a power line.

No caps. Now.

Alright. If all of this "Reggie Sez" stuff is false then he is officially the greatest troll of all time

I think Nintendo did say that they were going to make it so you could basically import the whole of your Wii to the Wii U. (Miis, save data, games, etc)) So no worries, I suppose.

If Nintendo doesn't announce Wii U pricing and release at E3, I'll be all like

#50730 What do you want to see at E3 2012 for Wii U?

Posted by CaptainFalco311 on 02 January 2012 - 02:44 PM

I think (read:hope) their press conference will be pretty long, maybe 2 hours. I don't think that the Wii will get more than 5-15 minutes, the 3DS will get around 45 minutes, and the Wii U will get the last hour of the press conference. I think we'll get:
  • A lot of heavy hitter, western AAA third-party titles (GTA V, Assassin's Creed, Call of Duty, Battlefield, etc.)
  • Some Japanese third-party titles (Ninja Gaiden, Metal Gear Solid Rising Metal Gear Rising Revengeance, etc.)
  • A look at Retro's new game (Star Fox, Metroid, F-Zero, or something original; it's too soon for a new Zelda game)
  • A VERY heavy emphasis on launch titles and/or services, especially after the debacle that was the 3DS launch
  • Lots of first-party titles in trailer form (once again, Star Fox, Metroid, F-Zero, or something original. Look at Nintendo's releases last year and you'll realize that most of them were outsourced, meaning that Ninendo's main studios were busy)
  • POSSIBLY a new Mario game
  • POSSIBLY an HD Skyward Sword re-release as a launch title
  • A Smash Bros. trailer
  • Apps, apps, apps (real apps, not Nintendo Video-type stuff)
  • Full online infrastructure details
  • A look at the OS
  • Launch details (release date, pricing, and launch titles)

#47481 Wii U Price Discussion

Posted by CaptainFalco311 on 14 December 2011 - 01:55 PM

All the people who are saying that the Wii U will cost more than $400 have forgotten one critical thing: THEY'RE NINTENDO! Especially after the disaster that was the 3DS launch and even Reggie going as far as saying that they've "learned their lesson", plus the fact that Nintendo has never priced a console more than $300, I highly believe that the Wii U will be less than $300. With the latest rumors saying that the Wii U is about as powerful as a 360, theorizing that the Wii U will cost more than $300 is ludicrous. Here are my main factors as to what the Wii U will cost:
  • The Wii costs $149. Yes, I know it's dated hardware, but Reggie has been quoted to say that the Wii will remain on the market for a decent amount of time and that Nintendo is trying to make a "tiered" pricing scheme between the two consoles. What "tier" costs at least twice as more than their lowest option?
  • The 360 costs $199, and God knows how much the 720 will cost. Nintendo is the industry's biggest fan of competitive pricing, and with the 720 rumored to hit as early as next year, Nintendo will need to stay competitive. And while the 360's been out for 5 years and its hardware has become pretty cheap to produce because of that, if the Wii U will have similar specs to a 360, then how could the Wii U possibly cost upwards of $400?
  • The controller will NOT cost $100 to produce. Trust me, I know what the Chinese electronics manufacturing market is like, and making a New Controller will NOT cost $100 to produce for several reasons. It has a resistive touchscreen. It doesn't have a fast CPU nor lots (if any) of RAM (I'd imagine this would be the case, but nothing's confirmed). It doesn't have Wi-Fi (as far as we know). It doesn't have a MicroSD Card slot. Plus, the controller will be produced by the millions, resulting in a lower price. This Android tablet, for example, has all of the above features that won't be in the New Controller and only costs $58 for one unit (http://www.aliexpres...holesalers.html). The controller may cost Nintendo as low as $35-$45 to produce.

What if you could fight as your Mii? It wouldn't need to be terribly deep; just make it like Mario Kart Wii in that it's the same thing for every Mii (well, almost, if you include the weight thing). The final smash could be the "Mii Parade", where all the Miis on the system trample over everyone.
