That's not the point. You think the Wii U is unique, but if there's not much difference between touch screen gaming on handheld and touch screen gaming on consoles, it's not really unique, is it?I don't know about you, but I tend to enjoy console games better than handheld ones (with the exception of Pokemon).
People who pre-order games.... Really? Just... Seriously? Who would want to pre-order anything that they know nothing about...? -_-
Ports of PS3/4/360/Bone is one thing, but HD remasters of GC and Wii games would be another. Someone should have tried to get Resident Evil remake HD on the Wii U though, since it was one of the Capcom Five on the GC.Yup. A lot more money, and ports, even if it has gotten easier through the years, are still going to involve plenty of work.
When 90% of your options is all Nintendo stuff because no one else wants to makes games for the Wii U, I'm pretty sure I'd prefer mostly Nintendo too.Too many people to respond to everyone, but I'll just say that while I admit the Game Pad hasn't been implemented in the best way possible, I would still argue that it's unique due to the touch screen being attached to an actual console, instead of a handheld. (And as far as games go, I really only want to play Nintendo games anyways, but that's probably just me.)
Really? I didn't know that...People who pre-order games.
It makes sense. They've probably been working on it for a long time, just announced it, will release new information about the thing, then open pre-orders.
When a large majority of the AAA third parties mainly produce generic shooters and cinematic action games, I'd mostly play Nintendo even if they did have third parties.When 90% of your options is all Nintendo stuff because no one else wants to makes games for the Wii U, I'm pretty sure I'd prefer mostly Nintendo too.
You're going to buy $200-$300 Wii Us now, then sell them for $50-$80 in the future? That's your money, but I don't think your idea will ever benefit you...Time to start hoarding all the Wii U's so when the NX is released and the Wii U is eventually discontinued I can sell them on Amazon/Ebay and make a quick buck. Might as well start hoarding Xenoblade X as well so I can sell used copies for 90 dollars and new copies for double. (Laughing Maniacally)
That's... that's not how this works.Time to start hoarding all the Wii U's so when the NX is released and the Wii U is eventually discontinued I can sell them on Amazon/Ebay and make a quick buck.
No, it makes zero sense to offer preorders on a product that has no official name, no price, no release date for the next 18-24 months (at least) and literally exists to the public as nothing beyond a preliminary name right now. There's nothing at all logical about offering the preorders or partaking in them. There's no "then" here either, this is an actual retailer offering to take peoples' money on a product currently sitting under all those conditions.It makes sense. They've probably been working on it for a long time, just announced it, will release new information about the thing, then open pre-orders.
I didn't say there wasn't other stuff. Just that the other stuff is pretty rare.AAA is nothing but cinematic and FPS in the same way that mobile is nothing but match-3 and endless runners, indies are nothing but 8-bit platformers, Japan is nothing but anime weeb-bait, and Nintendo is nothing but cutesy games for kids.
You're forgetting one major flaw: It costs $50.I honestly don't mind the Gamepad at all. It has a gimmick, but it still works perfectly as a normal controller as well.
I didn't mind the Wii Remote and Nunchuck either. Holding those feels pretty comfortable.
Besides, if you really hate the Gamepad, plenty of games will still let you use the Pro Controller instead.
50 quid for a controller isn't that bad, it could be worse. I agree with you though, the gamepad isn't that bad, it feels great, it's not heavy, and while there aren't many games that use it creatively having the map displayed on the touchscreen is better than having to pause your game constantly.Oh, does it? Well I guess I didn't know the price because I never really considered getting one.
But still, I stand by my point that the Gamepad isn't really that bad.
