Dude you need to have faith in Nintendo. They were the king of the mountain every system before the Wii. They made a cheaper system (Wii) to test the idea of motion controls. They didnt want to test out something as big as that on a powerful system. Cause if the Wii was as powerful as the 360 and people hated the motion controlls then that would have hurt Nintendo alot. So they used the Wii as a test. People loved Motion controlls (People had to copy it) and now Nintendo implements them into a more powerful system. (Thats my thoughts on why the Wii was weaker anyway) Nintendo has been around since September 23rd 1889. They have lasted this long they will last forever. To not have faith in Nintendo and Wii U is to not be a fan of Nintendo. Zelda HD Demo and Japan Bird Garden Demo are more then the silly 360/PS3 can do and that was an early version of Wii U. There is nothing to worry about. Nintendo knows what its doing.
Nothing wrong with COD? That was a joke right? Cause I almost fell out of my chair laughing.
Surprisingly, I am NOT as tired of this kind of earnest plea from gamers as I am from Ninty fanboys pretending that they don't know what people mean by "hardcore", and then insulting them or insinuating that they are immature for pointing out the obvious fact that the majority of people who spend money on and play games enthusiastically (in the US, at least) are FAR more excited about Xbox360 games than they are about Wii games.
COME ON... everyone knows that when someone says "hardcore gamer" they mean "gamer that likes the games that it is currently fashionable to like" - games like Call of Duty. And for whatever reason, these really are the games that people want, and the games that they will pay for. There is nothing inherently WRONG with liking Call of Duty - just like there is nothing inherently immature about preferring a beautiful, rich aesthetic experience to... well, what the Wii offers.
Now, if someone comes out and says "Skyward Sword is a terrible game, and its graphics suck... I much prefer Modern Warfare 3 because its graphics are better" then please go ahead and school them for their obvious inability to appreciate artistic styling and depth of play experience. Otherwise... can we please be charitable to the intention of the poster?
Graphics from Red Steel 1 and 2 were great and Mad World.
What are you talking about? When I say "hardcore gamer" I am talking about people who LOVE graphics and play stricly games like COD and Gears and would never touch a Mario gameor a nintendo 1st party game. I want this system to have it all for everyone. It will have the great nintendo games from Mario to SSB to Zelda and it will also have Ghost Recon and COD and it will look good to. Come on, the graphics on the Wii were terrible for any games aside from nintendo 1st party titles. Anyone can sit here and say" I dont care about graphics" and thats fine but when you play MLB 2k11 or COD on there it looks like a game made in 2003. I just dont want people playing these games 2 years from now in 2014 and say wow..these games look like 2007. This is the one key thing Nintendo lacked. They have a chance to fix it
More kids on COD and BF3 and Halo. More dudes from 16-25 ish who play Zelda on Wii.
To play what ? Wii Dance/Fit ? And where did you find this statement ?
I have a 360...Mainly only play Halo though lol. COD sucks. Gears of Bore sucks.
Why do people always seem to expect Nintendo consoles to have the least power? This is the first generation, If I am not mistaken, in which the Nintendo console has been the weakest.
Where I live, the Wii was regarded as the best console... At least, until 2009 when Modern Warfare 2 came out and the unholy power that drives people toward Call of Duty changed everything. I'm one of the very few people in my school who still play Wii, but I do have a PS3.
I have to ask though: why do people who have the PS3 and 360 ONLY play Call of Duty without even touching the great exclusives like Ratchet, Jak, God of War, LittleBigPlanet, and Gears of War?
