I'm sure everyone here will pick up a PS4 or 720 to go alongside their WiiU at some point; I just think that there will be enough high quality games the remainder of the year that I can wait until 2014 to go next-next-gen.


Not me. I made that mistake this generation. I bought a Wii, and then later when I found a Xbox 360 for $30 I bought one of those too.

In the end I've got like four times the number of Wii games that I do 360 games, and my 360 doesn't get much use outside of Netflix.

So this generation I'm sticking with one console, the Wii U, and one handheld, the 3DS.

And I can guarantee you that I'll have more games available to me than I'll have time to play.

Hey, guys...about that Wii U?


What about it?

On Topic: I'll finally have a chance to get to play the Wii U together with some college friends, been a long time since we can schedule a time to get together (with, you know, spouses, kids, work, etc.), really looking forward to the asymmetrical 4 and 5 player games on Nintendo Land. Out of all the revelations of the last console generation, one of the things I liked the least was the reduction in great couch multiplayer gaming, something that the Wii still maintained (and Wii U is trending to support as well).

I know that online is better 90% of the time when you have no one else to play with, but those 10% of times that you have a group together are so much more enjoyable when it happens.

if i was nintendo i would be flaming over rayman being put on other systems. You would think nintendo and ubisoft would have signed a contract when it was going to be a exclusive. When it comes down to it who really cares howwell a system sells if you like it you like it. Trust me i have loved so many games people hated upon hated and im happy i played those games.

If calling me a fanboy helps you sleep at night, go for it.

The fact of the matter is that the PS3 and Xbox 360 are both fine consoles with great libraries, but I only have so much free time between a social life and ten hours of work a day, so I have to make my gaming choices carefully.

(Also you may want to try to get the period, comma, and shift keys on your keyboard looked at.)

I don't really care if its launched on all consoles. The Wii U version should be the best one. Im more annoyed that they delayed the game for no reason.

My playtime on Wii U has petered off quite a bit in the last 2 months, mainly because of back catalog from the holidays. I imagine next month my playtime will increase though, with Monster Hunter and NFS.

I'm more ticked that we STILL don't know anything about Pikmin 3's release date. That game should've been out by now.

I wonder if it's worth me picking up Lego City right before Monster Hunter since it only comes out a day before and other then that one day I'm not sure how often I'll get to it since MH will take up a majority of my time for quite a while.

I'm starting to worry that it might get pushed to the holidays. I thought for sure they would announce the release date the other day via Nintendo Direct.

And no, I have no idea where this image came from or if it's legit... so grain of salt.

Also Pikmin's date is a Wednesday which means it's probably a placeholder.

Anyone else double dipping Monster Hunter? I travel a lot for work now, so being able to grind on site/on long plane rides sounds great on 3DS, then when I get home take my new loot online :D (also, an excuse to turn on the WiiU :D )

I'm really tempted and have a pre-order in on Amazon for the $20 off deal.

I will probably keep the order and try the 3DS version a bit to see if it's worth keeping.

It would be great if the transfer process is streamlined where you can transfer your character relatively fast without any hassle.

I really like the PSP version (offline only), but I had the most fun with the Wii version of Monster Hunter because of the online play. Interacting with people using a USB keyboard makes the game really fun. I actually learned most of the game through the help of random players (armor bonuses, enemy strategies, secret locations, etc). Most of the people you meet online are very helpful and will answer any question you have.

Like you I'm excited of the idea of taking an offline character online. :D

When the game comes out it we should made a thread on CAG for people that want to play together.

I think I'll probably try to find a ZombieU bundle tomorrow. With Monster Hunter coming out next month, as well as Zelda: WW HD on the horizon, that is enough to cement my decision.

I have this sickening feeling they're going to push Pikmin 3 to the holidays, which sucks, because so many of you guys were sold on Pikmin 3 being a launch window title.
You hurt the right person and you're wrong for life.

My bad. I don't listen to the podcast. To me, your post just came off as a blanket statement toward PC gaming in general. I apologize for the misunderstanding.

No prob man.
I forgive you.
At least you're not cheapy D.

On topic: I think it could have been a good move for Nintendo buy THQ or pick up some of it's properties.

Forgive me if I have a little nuance to my worldview, and am not a black/white ideologue who can't grasp complexity.

 

This is perhaps the most ironic thing I have ever seen on CAG.

If system sales figures are any indication, I'll predict a price drop in < 90 days. They need to do something to garner attention for the system, and the pricepoint just isn't cutting it.

Hmmm... I might just get a 3DS XL instead, and Fire Emblem. I enjoy my 3DS but think the larger XL would be more comfortable. I might do that and hold off on a Wii U for now. Nintendo still gets my money either way, lol.

I don't sense a pricedrop until after E3 in June. I'm thinking that only by then will Sony and MS introduce a price point and solid release date on their next-gen consoles. Nintendo isn't feeling any pressure now despite lower than expected sales numbers.

I just think Nintendo needs to get the price to $299 and either they or the stores can bundle stuff with it to make it more enticing... by the time PS4 and NextBox come out (for at least $100 more), Nintendo will have more must-have games out anyway.

I doubt Nintendo cuts the price. When they cut the price of the 3DS, they could afford to do it. They were making a profit on every unit then. Now, Nintendo isn't making a profit on Wii U. Cutting the price would put them in the hole even further and would cause more doom and gloom.

I honestly think they should just ditch the Basic, make the Deluxe $299 and remove all of the Stands and Digital Deluxe Promotion and make Nintendoland a digital copy (which they're already doing with the ZombiU bundle). I assume that'll make the system profitable.

The biggest problem is lack of software. Once the blockbuster games start dropping for the platform and Nintendo still can't sell the thing, then we can talk price cuts.

I'd go with the Wii U now if you want Monster Hunter since it's going to have online play and the ZombiU bundle is a pretty good deal if you wanted that game (and the controller works with MH). Plus, you already have a 3DS so that won't allow you to play any new games, but it is true that in the end they are getting your money :P.
