No one has mentioned this Wii U scheduled release Nov 18. I think Nintendo is going to release there lastconsole here. Others have caught up with the motion control. The tablet controller will cost $150 -$200 and the console is about as fast as the current Sony or Microsoft versions. Still no Dvd support either
What they need to do is trash the damn gimmicks and just go back to making good video games…
Agreed. 3rd party developers have ditched them
To be completely honest, they really don’t even NEED the third party players–they have enough stock in the empire they’ve created over the past several generations. But in both cases, let’s list a few industry standards when it comes to certain games (first or third party), and you tell me how many came on a gimmicks-based console:
Mario Kart 64
Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
Super Mario Bros. X
Secret of Mana
Super Mario World 1 and 2
Donkey Kong (any)
Mega Man (any)
Star Fox 64
…Just a few off the top of my head.
…And how many of these make you want to pick up your Wii, and how many make you want to pick up your NES, SNES, 64, or even Gameboy?
Nintendo needs to go back to their roots and make original (or at least semi-original) games with deep, multilayered content (see above).
