Wasn't sure if this deserved a new thread since it's just heresay, but it seems that Pikmin is coming out in July. This is from The-magicbox "Saturo Iwata said that the Wii U has lost momentum and it didn't sell as good as Nintendo has planned. The reasons are not enough first party games such that customer expectations were not met. He hopes the situation would change with the release of Pikmin 3 in July. There will be more and more major games appear for the Wii u, so that the Wii U business is revived."


His mention of July is in reference to the Japanese release the US release is August 4th!

Question (sorry if this has been asked and/or answered already):

I downloaded the Panorama View trailer to see how it is, because I love to travel and think the idea is pretty cool. I thought the quality was meh though. Are the paid versions of a higher quality? Also, do you have control of the view (pause, fast forward etc) with the paid version?

Thanks!

These are the games that I am currently playing:

:ps3: Batman: Arkham City

:wiiu: Mario Kart 8
:3ds: Adventure Time: Hey Ice King Why'd You Steal Our Garbage

Here is a direct link to my trade list.

Downloading the new System Update now. I don't know if they included it but there should be a way to just auto update the system, or at least just auto download it like 3DS does.

Also excited for Earthbound. I will be buying that to support the series. Although I am still waiting on my motherfucking Pilotwings 64.

You should check your settings, my update did auto download.

The system seemingly needs to be on for this to occur, but after a session of Batman AC my system just asked me if I was ready to update.

After the update, it can download/install updates for games and the system when it's off, sorta like the 3DS does.

Ugh. That's never good news.

Anyway, figured this was as good a place as any to ask... anyone know what's going on with the release date for Deus Ex? All articles from the beginning of April said May 7th, but nothing has been updated since. Amazon doesn't have a date listed, and GameStop and TRU don't even have a listing for it at all. Is it still coming next week or has it just sort of quietly slipped back and no one has mentioned it?

It just got the rating now, so expect a delay most likely.

I'm not sure what they would pirate; not much available now, and emulators have worked in wii mode for months.

If anything pirating will be a detriment to the Wii U because Nintendo will have to focus some of its efforts on patching it out. Meaning less time for developing games, less resources, etc.

It'll mean less features past the initial feature set, but it won't be a detriment to game development.

Well, great - the updated "failed" for me on the installation portion (after taking forever to download). I had to turn it off and back on and now it seems to be trying again. Hope they didn't brick my system!

OK, well it worked the second time. Strange that it would fail at all though - makes me nervous. It wasn't a connection issue as I have it on wired Ethernet.

So Super Mario World is showing as on sale for $1.50. Is that because I might have had it on the Wii? I don't even remember if I had that or not but for whatever reason I thought the "upgrade" promo wasn't starting till much later so I was surprised to see that. Or is it just a random sale?

So... Doesn't this point to some sort of account-linked storage of previous purchases? I thought Nintendo didn't do that. Or is it somehow looking on the Wii portion of my Wii U and seeing it there? I had thought they were separate and inaccessible from each other. In any case, now matter how they are doing it, I'm somewhat surprised it actually works ;).

It's only shows up for people that have transferred their Wii stuff to their Wii U.

Right, but the question is, if I buy something on the Wii (that is part of my Wii U now) will that be available for upgrade, or is it only the stuff you had at the time you did the Wii -> Wii U transfer? I have 1000 points sitting on my old Wii Shop account and several points cards in a drawer somewhere. I'd like to buy other Wii VC stuff and then upgrade it if/when it becomes available.

It should work just fine. I believe the only thing you won't get is Club Nintendo points for things bought on the Wii Shop.

I'm not convinced but it will take some more (upgradeable) content in the Wii U VC shop for me to be able to test it out. The only thing I'd even remotely want on there is SMW and that was, apparently, part of my old Wii VC purchases (though I don't think I ever played it ;)).

If you only have 1000 Wii points left I would get La-Mulana. Finally got around to downloading it last week, and what little I've played so far is very addicting in an old school way.

Plus you don't have to worry about the upgrading. If you already have La-Mulana then get Retro City Rampage (which I may get myself soon).
