Miyamoto: consumers will eventually see merit in unique Wii

Postby V4.SKUNK » 08 Apr 2013, 00:48

Needs first party games...Nintendo are going to fall if they dont get into gear and release big hitters like Mario, Zelda, Metroid, Starfox, F-Zero etc....

"There is going to come a point where they feel 'I can't do everything I want to do if I don't have a second screen."

Care to give some examples? Anyone?

Dual screens have been around a long time on the PC. I would love to see more developers utilize it, by giving the possibility of having maps, quest-info, etc. on there. Apparently there's just not enough demand for it, so I believe that no matter how much nintendo tries to educate the market, nothing but a stellar first-party line-up is gonna save them. I mean even if people were to become desperate enough to get a second screen, why wouldn't they just get a vita and with the ps4 get a next-gen Wii U?

No, nothing but HD Zelda and HD Mario will save them. On behalf of all nintendo fans out there, I can just hope that they don't let the burden of higher graphics hamper their creative game-design, because then the Wii U's future doesn't look very bright. And even if this were to be the case, one can just hope that Nintendo have enough business sense to not sink too much of their resources into salvaging a broken ship, so that they don't sink with it (highly unlikely, considering how much they have in the bank).

The Wii U is a solid machine and I myself plan to own one at some stage. I'm just waiting for certain titles to be announced and then I'm on board.

Others are just playing the waiting game right now, they're waiting to see what the competition offer first which is what happened to Sega with the Dreamcast when they released earlier than their competitors.

The Wii U is nowhere near dead and all it takes is a few software announcements for it to be on track again.

THIS

Just like every console they seemed to have released this past 5-10 years, they never have the games ready. BUT, when they are, the console will sell well. It's something they should stop doing to be honest, why they don't ready up a brand new 2D/3D mario and new zelda game for its release.. I don't know, they would sell so many more. Infact even if Pikmin was ready it would of sold so many more.

This. Although... maybe not the Dreamcast comparison.

Anyway, I'm excited for what Miyamoto can do with two screens. Although to be frank, I'd be excited for what Miyamoto could do with a stick and a dog turd.

Yes Miyamoto...we know. Less time jabbering, more time on the drawing board please.

Get those games released

I finally had a go on a wiiU over the weekend and i have to say its absolutely brilliant. The only thing the system needs to get people to conver to it is to actually get people playing on it.

Stupid thing about all these doom and gloom articles is that the wiiU is actually doing fine. In fact its sold more in its launch window than the 360 did and about the same as the ps3. Only thing its lagging behind is the wii.

here's an artcile with actual facts.

It doesnt need zelda, mario, metroid. Those are just safe bets.
If nintendo really want to dominate the world, new fresh ips with the nintendo stamp of approval on it.

Two screens? Hmm PS3/Vita Sly Racoon does it brilliantly.

This first point I completely agree with. I didn't get one at launch despite been a big Ninty fan, but when I tried one I loved it, t'was everything I wanted from a new console, and got one as soon as I had the cash.
They need to get it out there, get people playing on it. it's a great machine, and feels lovely to play on.

Precisely. I think a large part of the wii rocketing off the shelves at launch was because it had twighlight princess packed in.

It was just an incredibly confident launch. they had Zelda for the hardcore and wiisports to show your mum, which meant that she went out and got one to play wiisports on.

I love both Miyamoto and Nintendo, but the DS comparison isn't really a good one. The Wii-U costs £300 (when the remaining HMV stores aren't trying to increase turnover by selling it at a loss), far more than the DS.
I would love to see the Wii-U succeed, but consumers don't have £300 to spare on a system without big titles. Another factor Nintendo need to take into account is they only have until the Autumn to 'sell' their system to the public, because if there are still no huge releases and a big marketing push by then, all the gamers hard earned Wii-U cash will go straight towards the new Xbox or PS4.

Come on Nintendo, work your magic! 8)

The only game that had me at all interested in the WiiU was Aliens:CM, and not only did they completely botch that one up, they went and flamin' well canceled it for the WiiU! :roll:
