Today Activision finally confirmed that its next-gen Call of Duty title, Call of Duty: Ghosts, will be arriving on the Wii U. There had been some uncertainty as to whether the game would be released on the console, as the official promotional materials that debuted a few months ago contained no mention of the Wii U. Publishing CEO Eric Hirshberg confirmed the release. “As we have said before, we’re committed to doing everything we can to support the Wii U, which is why we’re excited to be bringing some of the most popular entertainment franchises in the world to the platform this year.” It’s nice to see Activision supporting the Wii U with some of its bigger titles, but other games were confirmed as well, including: Skylanders: Swap Force Angry Birds Trilogy Angry Birds Star Wars SpongeBob SquarePants: Plankton’s Robotic Revenge Wipeout Create & Crash So Activision certainly has a full catalogue for Wii U owners coming this fall. local_offer activision call of duty ghosts Nintendo wii u stars Further Reading Legendary Pokemon coming to Pokemon Go The cost of Nintendo consoles in today's dollars Wii U gets firmware update Watch the Smash 4 EVO Finals on Disney XD Take a peek at this week’s Nintendo Dow 9 things you probably didn't know about Super Mario Bros. Zorpix Wait this wasn’t already confirmed? COD comes out on every system they can get their paws on… Jeffery02 True. They were even on the Wii Zorpix in one form or another… Andreas Sunde Except MW2. Ducked Well, we’re still waiting for a 3DS CoD game… Zorpix very true Ducked I do hope the 3DS gets a CoD game Zorpix its not like it couldnt handle it Ducked I know right, I’m sure it turn out a lot better than the vita version of blops 2. Although I’d love to see zombies mode more than anything for a 3DS title. Just have 1-8 player local co-op and I’d be happy. Maybe online mode too. Andreas Sunde How would it work? Unless they make the CPP required, there won’t be any way to controll the aim, unless it’s on rails. And no, stylus aiming in an FPS is not a good solution. A port of the original CoD would be pretty cool, though. As long as they make it CPP required, or at least optional. Ducked Some people don’t mind using stylus controls for shooters. I’m sure CPP would be optional. In fact I know it would… Shaise Yup, they want to reach the audience, which is what I like about them, EA you can keep your Battlefield Zorpix Or just reach the audience’s wallets… D2ThaLo305 About time!? Bob Wilkerson I am sure CoD and Skylanders will be popular but the others are shovelware IMO. Zuxs13 not sure angry birds can be considered shovel-ware but at the price they are releasing them at they should send people to a psych ward for choosing to buy them for those prices. Bob Wilkerson It was the prices that made me include Angry Birds in that list. I admit I once liked the game and would probably get it for the Wii U but not at the prices they typically ask for them. This game should be a $4.99 eShop title at best. Even at that price it is considerably more expensive than what they charge on the tablet versions for essentially the same game. Andreas Sunde I just checked the appstore on iPad. Rio HD is free, while both the original and Seasons HD is 3 bucks each, totalling to 6$. Factor in costs for physical copy, 15$ should be an acceptable price. 30, no way. But I guess they want to sell it for a bit more when it won’t have microtransactions (I hope). Bob Wilkerson I Suppose but if they made it an eShop title I may be inclined to spend $15- $20 for the complete series (Angry Birds, AB: Star Wars, and AB: Rio) because my wife likes to play it on her kindle but for the price they want she can keep playing it on her Kindle. Sdudyoy I guess the only reason I would think that this game wasn’t coming to Wii u is because most Wii u owners don’t really care for COD or other shooters. Phillip Fauble That’s actually not the case at all. The internet has a weird idea of nintendo fans. Theres a pretty big cult following of online fps on wii. Some people love the controls…. and since Wii U supports wiimotes… Sdudyoy Personally I only own Nintendo consoles but I just can’t find myself enjoying any shooter besides Metroid prime, and I know other Nintendo fans who don’t like Shooters either, but I shouldn’t have said most Wii u owners don’t like shooters, that was being ignorant Phillip Fauble Well, I don’t know if I would say that. Its pretty common for people to think that and I don’t know how big of a community it actually is. It could potentially be a lot less people than I think…. but the people that are into it seem to be super into it. sharlo galmo Did someone here really believe that won’t come to the Wii U? Maxid765 Some idiot yesterday stated that it is cancelled for wii u LMAO http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2DSNI0lLOyo sharlo galmo i saw it, but even then i know it will come! sdmac200600 zaire is retarded… Zuxs13 He is a product of Xboxtism. It’s swept the nation but a cure has been found in H1WiiU1. Sidney Majurie Oh dear. Don’t promote that buffoon on this site, lol. Møhåmmęd Jårmøn Can’t believe everything you read. Especially about games on the Internet. Too many fanboy articles Spike Ashford Gotta love it when these types of videos are made redundant. Nintedward And it only took 20 articles saying ”CoD ghosts not coming to Wiiu ?” ” CoD ghosts confirmed for Wiiu ?” going back and forth for us to finaly get confirmation lol… 😛 Great news for Wiiu, I might buy it. Ducked And not a single one on KH3 Steven_Segal Yes wohooo *sarcasm* Nintedward The Dual screen multiplayer, off screen play and Wii remote pointer support actually made Blops 2 wiiu pretty kick ass If I do say so. Sure,it was a samey old cod game… but those things definitely did help. (I’m sure I replied this to Steven_Segal)… Wayne Beck This is the First CoD game since 3 that has actually looked like a good game to me. Not gonna say day 1, but I’ll probably pick it up. Decker Shado I haven’t bought a CoD game since Blops for 360, but if things are looking better for me come november, and the gamepad is used at least as well as it was in Blops 2, I most certainly am looking into this. Javy G I myself am picking this one up. I didn’t want the first of the Wii U series until after they had some experience with the console itself. This will be my second Call of Duty since The Finest Hour on the PS2 released in 2004! Christopher Acuna Not only that but I found the wiiu version to run smoother then both the ps3. And 360 version. Imo of course. Steven_Segal LOL you didn’t, but I was joking really. I played BO2 on PS3 and it run like $#!T, too much lag but the Wii U version is far better. Bob Charlie HOW’S PIKMIN 3?! Shong Now, all we need is fucking DLC and CoD Elite (even though I’m not a fan of it, but it helps). Nuketown 2025 was part of the preorder bonus for Black Ops II on the Wii U and then it turns out that it the wasn’t even included. So, it seems Activision didn’t expect Black Ops II to not sell too well on the Wii U, right? Well, things got even worse. Months later, Xbox 360, PS3, and PC all got Nuketown 2025 for free. The Wii U didn’t. Free Fall (bonus map for Ghosts), DLC, and Elite better fucking come to the Wii U. Smartass2 I’m not a FPS fan but I might get this. I definitely will get Angry Birds Star Wars. Good news. Developers are starting to figure out that Nintendo fans spend money on games. Super Mario Just 20? That’s lower than I imagined. Me Gusta Me Gusta 20 articles about CoD Ghosts on Wii U. Mochlum inb4 turned into something negative. Jack5221 COD’s crap whatever console you play it on, it’s the same old formula year after year. It’ll need a reboot for sure for this generation if the trend of falling sales figures continue. According to sales figures BLOPS 2 is down 15% over MW3 and MW3 is down 5% over BLOPS 1, that makes a 20% overall drop in sales figures. Looks like I’ll be trading in my BLOPS 2 for some spending power towards Pikmin 3 & wonderful 101. Nathaniel Burgei Technically, %19.25. you can add percentages of totals. if BLOPS 1 sold 100, MW3 sold 95 (5% less), if MW3 sold 95 copies, then BLOPS2 sold 80.75 copies. LordiMcKill I stopped buying COD after BLOPS, it felt like they’d gone as far as they could with the series with the same old copy and paste gameplay. uPadWatcher I’m planning on buying CoD: Ghosts for Wii U… but my mind is set on getting Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag for the U also. Zombie Boy Hell yeah, that game looks awesome! Edward Hopefully some store has a buy 2 get one free deals or something. Møhåmmęd Jårmøn Don’t forget about WATCH_DOGS for WiiU!!! 🙂 Ducked I knew it was coming on Wii U, but why the heck did they wait so long to confirm it!? I’m glad it’s the next gen version Alexander Kleinwechter or is it, i hope so. Andreas Sunde They said it will run on the next-gen engine. Now we’ll have to see whether that’s true or not (Nuketown 2025 preorder bonus was not true). Ducked Yeah, I hope they throw in the pre-order map bonus for CoD Ghosts this time Merrfn It is supposed to be called “free fall”. It would be cool if you got the ghosts camo pre-order bonus in black ops 2. Basically nobody would have it. Ducked I just want what everyone else is having for once Merrfn Who doesn’t! Ducked Well it’s confirmed now that we’re getting the Free Fall map DLC with pre-order. Hopefully there stick to it Andreas Sunde I’m pretty sure Nuketown 2025 for Wii U was confirmed as well… Ducked It was, but it never came in the box… Sulama Traoré Thank you based god, Nintendo confirmed its running on the Next Gen Engine. Everyone buy it so we can get DLC as well! Alexander Kleinwechter wait really its working on the next gen engine like ps4 and xbox shit, Zuxs13 That’s what WiiU Facebook pages says. Although i wouldn’t really call their engine next gen. Steven_Segal I’m happy for everyone that enjoys first person shooter. Plus it’s in the only next gen system where online is free! Zorpix oh yeah, thats right! Clel PC? Dodge Pribyl PC isn’t regarded as a console. Clel That’s true. But he said system, and not console. XD Møhåmmęd Jårmøn He also said “next gen” Steven_Segal as @1048ec676a2418a8a1ae14239937f545:disqus said! ICHI He’s just going to edit his sentence to say console, then there will be red on your face. I’m off to drink a pint of Bovril Steven_Segal LOL, I should have said consoles! XxLitning_StrikerxX Im not a fan boy of Phony but PS3 has online connection free too just that playstation plus is a different kind of monthly payment (basically just if you want to get an early look of screenshots of games and promotional services etc.) Steven_Segal I said next generation consoles (PS4, XBONE, Wii U) RedRocBoy Thanks Ash. Can always depend on you to bring the good news! XD Alexander Kleinwechter how is she giving the good news, its not she that confirms it Antar Rodríguez ill wait to see if there is support, patches and more importanly DLC if not, i wont even bother on buying it ican1992 people that think like you, and dont buy it, are the reason they dont support it on nintendo platforms down the line. it needs to sell so its reasonable for them to release dlc and support it on our platform. Antar Rodríguez dude are you kidding? what about all the people whoe bought all previous titles? they never got support or dlc this is far more than just the number of people playing, besides iill definetly buy it if i see good support, you should respect others opinions as well as ask for your customers rights ican1992 Well if you look at sales for black ops 2 for Wii U compared to other platforms it did really poor on Wii U it sold 0.19m as of July 6th Antar Rodríguez exactly, so if previous cod titles did better, why didnt they recieve support?, not to mention DLC so u cant really blame it on people who lost faith in this franchise ican1992 Because previous titles were on the Wii and most people who had a Wii didn’t have enough storage to even fit dlc. Antar Rodríguez im not just talking about DLC but support too, and people did have the storage for a DLC ill just stick with the waiting till i see real facts that make me buy the game, BO2 was my first cod game ever dude and i bought it for wii u as well as ps3 so imagine my surprise when i saw how wii u was treated ican1992 some people did but most people who had a wii didnt even know how to put extra storage on there, and if you dont know? a usb flash drive or memory card would not work for DLC. you would need an external hard drive. Antar Rodríguez the thing is that the resources to have DLC where there, and as i said its not only about DLC, the lack of support got a lot of friends tire of the franchise, as a new comer to this game i can tell that my “full experience” was dissaponting ican1992 yes, they havent treated us as equals to xbox and ps3 but its still more than what most companies are doing for us right now. dont get me wrong im no fan of activision im still pissed at how they closed radical entertainment!!! ican1992 yes some people did have the storage but most people didnt bother to have the extra storage or didnt know how to add it considering the fact that a usb drive or memory card wouldnt work for dlc. they would need a hard drive. i do agree with you though the wii u should have gotten the dlc. NkoSekirei no thats not it dude there were too many hackers on mw3 and bo1 and thats why we never got any support cause of hackers TaintedXGamer DLC Right away! none of this Stalling DLC for Wii U Bullshit Sidney Majurie Won’t buy this until Wii U version gets DLC like the others… FaTih Meither (Me either) WiiUisgaming dlc is the worst way to get more money. You pay $10 just for another map or more characters. With or without DLC I am just fine. Sidney Majurie I don’t buy DLC but some Nintendo fans do. I wouldn’t support the game on principal for Nintendo fans who want it, unless it offers the same as the other consoles. But I personally couldn’t care less for DLC TULFich now if there ws a cross platform server, then people wouldn´t be dicking about no population, but in the time COD ghosts comes out, there will be a better database on N´s servers cuz of earlier game releases, so, might buy it either Wii U or 360 Petri Microsoft wont let any kind of cross platforming in. And dont know if Sony would either, once they start charging for online gaming. But Sony and Nintendo cross platform play would be great. TULFich what is great about N´s servers is that there are not a ton of assholes playing, and plays almost lagless Petri What is sad about the servers, that the user base is so small, that you’re pretty much bound to meet the few assholes on it 00EpicGamer00 Wait everyone! This COD might be actually good. The fish’s AI is so good, they move right out of the way. Also, remember….this one has a dog. (I’m actually happy about the dog, cause we can play as something other than a human!) Edit: Umm, guys? I’m just joking. I’m not being serious. Baum 「ツリー」 aaand good bye, troll… 00EpicGamer00 I was joking… Merrfn The irony is, I sometimes see you having that reaction to obviously sarcastic posts, just like your one. 00EpicGamer00 Well, you know, it IS hard to tell if someone is being sarcastic over the internet. I apologise if I gave off the wrong impression. Merrfn Sometimes it is. I just find it funny you are calling someone out on it. 00EpicGamer00 What do you mean “calling someone out”? Budew thought I was being serious, so I wanted to clarify. Unless he was joking too. sdmac200600 Lol guys, he’s clearly joking. 00EpicGamer00 I’m actually a “she”. Just so you know, I guess. sdmac200600 Ahh Alright. Sorry bout that 🙂 00EpicGamer00 It’s cool. No big deal. 🙂 Clel Eh, wait a sec! Only on Xbox One! Dorfdad Wont touch thing thing until they confirm 100% that DLC will be included. They said BO2 would be on par with other systems but it wasnt not DLC, stripped Zombies, etc.. I want 100% equality or im not buying. Joie Liba Imagine what would happen if we got DLC with our current playerbase. 1200 players online at a given time? It’s already hard enough to find games in certain gamemodes. Now imagine if only 10-15% of cod wii u players bought DLC. How hard would it be to find games? Unless you only care about the zombies maps then that makes sense. Andreas Sunde They could at least give us Nuketown 2025, which was originally a preorder bonus, but suddenly wasn’t, and is now a required free download on all other systems. Will.F. Martinez Just another reason why I wouldn’t need a PS4 yet. Not a big fan of cod, but played blackops2 on the wiiu and got hooked. So I’ll be getting ghost for the U hopefully we get dlc. If not so what it’ll still be worth seeing a next Gen engine running on my U zantis Happy to see confirmation of Ghosts. After Treyarc got BO2 all patched up it was a pretty solid game despite the lack of DLC. LordiMcKill Why does it feel like there only bringing their milked franchises to the Wii U? This is still great news for the Wii U none the less, now all we need is Activision and Bungie to bring Destiny along for the ride as well. Zuxs13 I will get this version because I find the people on the Wii U online are no where near as annoying as the other platforms and i want more games to come to the Wii U. Shaise Plus! Its the only next gen platform in which you can play online for free! Archiq09 Now they just need make DLC for wii u with him not as BO2 -_- Jeffery02 And yet still no Black Ops 2 DLC for the Wii U. I’ll be honest, I wouldn’t buy it, but it would be nice to be treated the same as the other consoles. Quicksilver88 Sometimes the WiiU user base mystifies me……I mean this is a major title for 2013 and this is a title XBone is pushing as a huge deal…….people on these forums bitch and moan about no 3rd party support and then when we get it people act like oh well no big deal……We all better hope Ubi, Activision, Disney, and Warner do good business on WiiU this xmas or we won’t see shit in 3rd party ever again. I plan to buy about 8 games for WiiU between Aug and xmas and 1/2 of them will be 3rd party. Please people support the 3rd party titles of the game types you enjoy. I we want WiiU to be a system for every type of game and gamers we need 3rd part support and not just for kid and dance games. Entropyguy Don’t get me wrong, I’m pleased that CoD is coming to the Wii U, even though it’s not really my kind of game. I’m just puzzled as to who the market is for a mobile game on a home console. :- Quicksilver88 Well Military FPS are not typically my cup of tea either. I did like Special OPS the Line and only played it when I heard it had such a trying and cutting story. Typically I like story based FPS like some of the 007 games (nightfire and the 007 on wii). I too just don’t get into the whole shooter bro thing. I also wonder how much convergence there is between mobile gamers and console gamers. I mean some of us will play anything, but I really can’t stand most games on my iphone/ipad for more than a few minutes. For mobile I have a 3ds/vita and if going on an extended road trip or at the airport I would much rather play a true portable. I do like ther versatility of the WiiU gamepad though and find some touch funtions to be interesting, personally I like it more for offTV play and second screen visuals. So far I am a little let down by Nintendo’s use of it though as they usually develop their hardware to meet their software vision and so far they haven’t done crap with it. It is still early though and I do expect them to do some innovative things with it eventually. Shaise I’m hypnotised by Spongebob Planktons Robotic Revenge! I was begging for a new spongebob title because I grew up on them, now I can feel nostalgic, yesterday was great!, It was my birthday, Got Pikmin 3 ( which means I got it a day before release ), & now see this announcement of a new spongebob game after a long time, coming to Wii U! Quicksilver88 I know I love it when people don’t like a certain type of game call them trash ports or rubish. I haven’t played any but I heard several of the Sponge Bob games in the past were actually really good….here’s hoping you get a good one to enjoy on the WiiU The Libyan Great, now all we need is confirmation that all the DLC will be coming to WII U and I’ll happily purchase it. Christian Schoff I still want some of the BO2 DLC. lol Entropyguy Are people somehow not sick of Angry Birds yet? o.O TaintedXGamer In B4 Angry Birds Star wars 2 is made available on every Gadget/console that can play it…. Dez Other than CoD and Skylanders, who the hell buys that other crap? Angry Birds is cheap and you can buy it for significantly less than what is required for it on console, and the rest just looks like trash no one is interested in anyway. I knew this was coming for months, I don’t know why everyone doubted it. Activision isn’t as dumb as EA, they are both incredibly greedy, but Activision knows they can turn a profit by not being as childish as EA or utilizing such anti-consumer strategies. Rehashing the same game over and over achieves better results than implementing all those ridiculous policies. CoD still needs to die though, but at least we will see more 3rd party support by the holiday season, too. ludist210 Their engine is scalable, unlike the Frostbite engine (supposedly). The port won’t cost much to make, and Treyarch knows Nintendo hardware. Heck, even with 200k sales, I’m sure Black-Ops 2 on Wii U turned a profit. Not typically my type of game, but Ghosts just went on my radar. Joel Am I the only one who is somewhat excited for the new Spongebob game? Mostly because this could mean Activision gets to publish Nicktoons games? DVE I rather have BF4 :/ screw rehash of duty 10 Spirits o.0 ICHI Redux Brandon Gardner Never understood why Angry Birds was made a console game when I can get the same exact game for free on my phone…. I figured COD would make it to the Wii U but let’s hope for GTA:V and Kingdom Hearts 3 Christian Schoff Yes Dear God please give us Kingdom Hearts 3. Also you look pretty badass in your profile picture. John Raybell it will sell, touch games will push the wiiu, just watch DragonSilths Anyone who honestly thought this crap wasn’t going to be on Wii U is a moron. COD goes on everything. You should have known this was CONFIRMED without it even needing to be CONFIRMED. COD BO3 next year will be on Wii U. Wanna bet? JBeauregard Great news for the Wii U and future console sales! Now, let’s have back and forth articles about DLC lol YayGs I was in gamestop the other day to finally reserve the Zeldas, and on the tv was an interview with someone from Activision about CoD Ghosts and when he asked what consoles he didn’t say Wii U. Gave me a confuzzled face. ICHI Whether or not folks are going to buy this or not doesn’t bother me one bit, but I just smiled to myself as the first time since the Wii U launched, I planned quickly in my head which games I could afford before Christmas. It feels like its been a lot longer than 7-8 months but having more games released than I can afford is going to look good on those games store shelves 🙂 Thanks should go to Activision for looking at the bad sales of blops2 and saying “well were trying to build an install base” and just releasing their next game. Electronic arts should take note, this is how you don’t get voted worst company in the world 3 years running. JB I don’t care for CoD (or shooters in general anymore) , but I’m glad Wii U is getting it, as there are a lot of CoD fans out there and you can’t deny it’s a major title. My only concern is the amount of DLC the Wii U version may or may not get. I’ve said this before, hopefully Nintendo will get together with Activision and offer some sort of Ghosts deluxe bundle… I could see something like that selling. Andreas Sunde About damn fucking time. ItzameyaToad I knew this would be coming to Wii U. There was nothing really holding them back from bringing it to Wii U aside from maybe the small install base but even still they are gauranteed a decent amount of sales. When you look at past Nintendo consoles(Gamecube, Wii) they have always got new Call of Duty’s(the exception being MW2). Ben Ifits HEY!! Off topic but precursor just restarted their kick starter campaign for shadow of the eternals aiming for a wii u and pc release!! Asking for $750,00 and apparently will have metal gear solid voice actor David hayter. Ashley write an article please lol Shaise Say what now!!! A spongebob title! I grew up on spongebob titles and I’d pray & pray for a new spongebob title to bring back my childhood & get some nostalgia! Its so good to see Activision now publishing spongebob titles now, because they are very good Wii U supporters as well as Ubisoft. It used to be THQ & I’d wonder whos next because THQ got bankrupted Eduardo ok.. now thats too many good games for wii u.. FaTih yes I don’t know which I should buy and which not :/ Edit: cuz their so many Must Haves for me blindtiger AWESOME… however i will boycott every new COD, unless it gets dlc… NkoSekirei my problem with cod is the lack of support and im dealing with bad servers on bo2 each day thats been disconnecting tons of people during matches which its pissing alot of people off and to top it all off there people abusing glitches which trey doesnt do a dam thing Merrfn What are you talking about? You NEVER time out in Black Ops 2! It is the least laggy game I have ever played! The host always has amazing internet! Hit detection flawless, balanced snipers, the whole shebang! CoD: Black Ops 2 is the best and most immersive experience you will ever have! Putting you in both long and close quarters engagements, in the mind of a struggling soldier. CoD redefines the FPS genre yet again with an amazing flawless experience. Shut up and take your hating somewhere else, Black Ops 2 is fantastic >:( NkoSekirei sry dude ur wrong and u need to stfu fanboy and want im saying is fact the disconnections have been hitting alot of people on bo2 and its getting lot worse especially wen trey stop maintaining the servers and by the way i do like bo2 but with the server issues keep going crap i start getting angry and to top it off we havent got a single patch or even a response from trey on the forum site to address these issues which is why im gonna wait and see about how ghosts turns up Merrfn XD I was being sarcastic man! Everything I said in that post was sarcastic. Re-read it with that in mind and see if you think I am being a CoD fanboy. krubele yilma who’s going to buy watch dogs for wii u, thumbs up if yes thumbs down if no ( PS NO TROLLS PLEASE). I know im buying it. Møhåmmęd Jårmøn I preordered in February 🙂 Aaron Call of Duty Ghost with Miiverse integration sounds pretty good to me. Sidney Majurie …and the Sony drones and Xbots collapsed in horror. LOL. Mark Thom COD confirmed for Wii U finally WOOOOOHOOOOOO please! lol Marcel Kleine I’m not gonna buy this game until I get Black Ops 2 dlc. John Raybell lol, really, ill just spend that DLC money on the next COD, blops 2 wiiu wont get dlc, so move on Merrfn If this CoD game doesn’t have DLC and dedicated servers I won’t buy it. Black Ops 2 sucks without DLC and the lag is torture. If they want to make my dream CoD game this is what it would be a combo of: 1) MW2 hit detection 2) Quickscoping from black ops or none at all. 3) Dedicated servers 4) CoD 4 maps 5) Present day guns 6) No crazy OP and annoying attachments 7) C4 from Blops 8) No stupid perks i.e, last stand, martyrdom. John Raybell to be fair, blackops 2 is the same on anything you play it on, pc,xbox,ps3 have all the same issues, so its not the wiiu or nintendo thats guilty here. And yes i know you didnt say it was, i just want to confirm that for others. Whats nice about blackops 2 on wiiu full vsync, no body ever brings this up, pretty much ever xbox360 and ps3 game suffer from screen tearing, wiiu does not. two screen, one on tv and one on gamepad Less graphic drop when doing split screen. Over all black ops 2 on wiiu is better then xbox360 and ps3 version. Pc is better in all areas, but man the two people on there own screen is awesome, i have blops2 on pc and the wiiU gets played way more, couch co-op is awesome what can i say Merrfn Me and my Dad can both play at the same time easy peasy. One of us always plays on the gamepad and the other the pro controller/Wiimote My favourite controller is the pro controller and my Dads the Wiimote. One of us always makes a sacrifice and use the gamepad because we both agree it is better with two separate screens. John Raybell sacrifice? either or is perfect, tv or game pad, unless your talking about not being able to use a wii remote, and if that’s the case you can use one while using a game pad, the game pad has a working sensor bar. Correct me if i misunderstood you 🙂 Merrfn My dad doesn’t like having to use the Wiimote on the gamepad. It is rather hard to aim in a FPS with that small screen. John Raybell something one can get use to, but yeah i see what your saying 🙂 ICHI I like that you can legitimately play local against a friend and not see each other’s screen. We used to do that with Goldeneye but you could only split one image out of the 4 player and had to put a bit of card over their little box on the main screen. Made for great 1vs3 sniper games though. Chris Hamilton COD never has dedicated servers Merrfn I know. High time they stop penny pinching on those overpriced games. If they had dedicated servers my high blood pressure from rage would be highly reduced. Chris Hamilton I agree but it won’t happen, COD sells in such huge numbers that p2p somewhat works. What I don’t like is when other companies think it will work for them as well. ICHI It could have been worse though like gears of war 3 which had dedicated serves but then took them away unless you bought all their dlc and the p2p was broken. Whoever was host could kill anyone with a shotty from silly ranges, and everyone else’s shotgun would go off half a second later. Merrfn It doesn’t really work. They need dedicated servers in all honesty. Black ops 2 should be re-named lag ops 2. ICHI Out of interest what’s your NAT settings like? Merrfn Um “strict” I guess. Thats what it says on my Blops 2 menu. ICHI You should sort that, you can’t connect to any moderate hosts and can never be host as your network doesn’t really like the game. I port forwarded blops2 on my router and a lot of the lag went as I didn’t have to play in rooms full of other strict Nat types or was host when I did. It still can be laggy but it might help your problem a bit Merrfn The problem is I live in New Zealand. The Wii U usually only has a max 10k people at one time. Only 3 lobbies I can get into on a 4 bar. And it is the same people I am against all the time. I put my search preferences on “any” sometimes instead of “best” so I can play some game modes other than TDM. Just means I am versing some Mexican speaking weirdos lol. ICHI Then you should take it as a “I live in the most beautiful country in the world tax” 🙂 Well I have the same problem sometimes, being in the UK there’s not many of us so it’s a choice of American or French players all the time. On the plus side, my French is getting better 😉 Merrfn I do live in the most beautiful country in the world. When I get annoyed with life I look out of the kitchen window at my sea side view. Go down to my private beach for a swim or a ride on my boat. I think that is worth not having a perfect connection in Black Ops 2. What is your Nintendo network ID? Mine is Merrfn. My friends list is full and 8 more people want in, but I can make room for you. ICHI ICHIkatakuri is my ID. Holy moses yours is full already! I thought I was doing so well with about 20 haha. When I get annoyed with life I look out of my neighbours extension view kitchen window and watch their cat having a shit in my wishing we’ll rhubarb plant pot 🙁 ICHI Damn this phone Leo Good to know that Nintendo is working their ass with those 3rd parties. Even if it’s the tired COD it will open the gate for other new titles to come in. Your money Even though i don’t enjoy cod, it’s good to see some third party support. But what is the point of angry birds? u can get it free on android and iphone. John Raybell what is the point? REALLY, SUPPORT is the point, jesus what is with people here, are IQs really this low here? Your money sorry, it just that think people would rather buy angry birds for free on the android than buying it. thedeciderU so this fall, activision will release cod: ghosts and a bunch of crap. PS4/WiiU Not skylanders Well for me it is crap but for a lot of people it isn’t ICHI Yeah it could be a good sell for parents wanting to get a new console for the family this Christmas and seeing a new skylanders for the kids and cod for the adults has to help some people with the choice. thedeciderU yeah, not for me either. it’s fine that they’re bringing all these games. it’s a good thing, especially now. i can’t even leave a sarcastic/joke comment without getting my head bitten off. anyone that’s seen any of my other posts knows i support this system 200% and want it to succeed. but i also call out nintendo when they mess up, and support other current/next-gen consoles as well. John Raybell no they will release cod and other games others want, dont bitch about console support thedeciderU you want to pay for angry birds? and my intention wasn’t bitching, but it seems like they’ve been making better games than that that likely would sell better on the wiiu. the games coming IS good news, but, if their support turns solely to shovelware, then is that a good thing? is shovelware over quality games good? therealruben1 the title to the angry birds trilogy console version if it were honest :Angry Birds:We Want Your Money. thedeciderU UNRELATED: Best Buy is having a major sale on several Wii U titles, as is Amazon. Bought Tekken TT2 today in-store at Best Buy for $19.99. Also, BLOPS 2 is $19.99. On Amazon, noted NFSMWU for 22.56, plus several others. Sweet time to buy for the Wii U. Merrfn On a completely off topic note, It saddens me to see Minecraft going on the Xbox One. I think that in the stages of development Microsoft helped Mojang develop it for PC. Now Minecraft goes on that horrible system. It would of worked so much better on Wii U. Well it really doesn’t matter. The Xbox 360 version is shovelware compared to PC. Hopefully it will be the same with the Xbox One. Obviously Mojang and Microsoft have some kind of partnership going on. John Raybell Well told ya so, lol, COD comes out on everything. lol Gotta love more support 🙂 This time they better bring DLC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Play blackops2 almost every night on our WiiU no DLC sucks PS4/WiiU Same for me Merrfn The average more casual gamer will love this. Though it may not be the best game in the world, (Ruined the FPS genre basically) it does have a massive role in gaming today. My Logic: A 37 year old man, walks into the video game store. The man is pondering about what console to buy him, and his family. The man has fond memories of Nintendo as a kid. A sudden rush of Nostalgia overcomes him. The Wii U is beating the PS4 and the XBONE in his mind. It would be the best console for him, and his kids because of those Nintendo exclusives. But it doesn’t have the latest CoD game for him to kick back on the couch while his children are sleeping, and as his wife skypes her friends and goes on Facebook. The man is starting to lean towards the PS4 because CoD is one of his and his 15 year olds sons favourite games. Then he sees CoD. The man buys the Wii U, with smash bros, Zelda U, Nintendoland and CoD Ghosts. The man’s wife never liked him playing on the TV. she always preferred to watch her cheesy soap opera than go on various social media when he played his games. The man realises that he can play on the gamepad when his wife watches the stupid soap he hates. On the weekend mornings the man’s children play together bonding as a family. He is a happy Man 😉 $41809923 i no how you feel to i have the same problem Marcos Crill Colon That’s basically my life ..are you spying on me Merrfn Yes. I hacked the Xbox one you got early. I also know that Bill Gates was your father… Shaise You should be a marketing person at Nintendo! Shaise This is why it is ideal for 3rd party support on Wii U, thank you Activision, Ubisoft & Warner Bros! Because when on a Nintendo console, it actually is for everyone!, it would have family games & shooter/mature games, whereas on PS4 & XBONE, you already have first party games in the shooter genre, therefore the majority of their library will be for mature kelvin for some reason it reminded me of this funny japanese commercial http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=vadMRi7ybAU Luke Wilson BUT! will it have DLC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! John Raybell thats what im worried about, if it dont its not going to sell well, people spend more and play more when you have new content, blackops2 without dlc is getting very very stale. Piece of moldy bread, sure its still fun, but we all want the new content everyone else gets. $41809923 who wants angry birds i do not want this game i want codg on the wii u ok we are not little kids any more John Raybell just shut up, its people like you that are the issue, dont buy it if you dont want it, its perfect for the touch pad, and many want it, its support none the less. Why do people support this whole no support thing, buy what you want, and let others buy what they want. And most of all shut the fuck up Funny how you bring up not little kids anymore, when it sounds like you are a little kid still. Also games are games, unless you are playing fisher price games, they arent LITTLE kid games, thats like saying mario and everything nintendo does is for little kids, ITS FOR EVERYONE and CAN BE ENJOYED BY ANYONE Sure i don’t want angry birds either, but im all for any support any one is willing to throw our way. I want any and all games to make it to the wiiu regardless as to what they are. Everyone is different, and consoles aren’t just made for one person, they are made for EVERYONE, thus any type of game is needed as different people other then your self own them. Be glad for support, not be a little cry baby and say what you don’t want, who cares what you a single person wants or doesn’t want, shit its not about you at all Zombie Boy I agree completely, and the ONLY reason I’m not buying it is because I’d never be able to get the missus off the Wii U, and I want to play games on it too! discuss Puzzle games are for kids? Christopher Acuna It is funny that people actually thought this wasn’t going to come to wiiu. Nevermind the cod games that released oon the Wii and 3ds. I already had my mind set on purchasing this for wiiu day one. Saul Strange I really hope the graphics are better than BLOPS 2. There was some terrible slowdown in the single player campaign (due to bad Wii U optimization I hear) not to mention some really lo-res textures. It looked and felt ancient, I don’t know why the reviews were so good… PS4/WiiU What are you talking about, I never heard of any of that. Plus, I own the game and there is absolutely nothing bad about it. That’s probably why the reviews are so good John Raybell the xbox360 and ps3 version were the same. Lag is present in all version but PC. Graphics wise, the wiiu blackops was EXACLY the same, only a bit better IT HAS VSYNC, the ps3,xbox360 did not. No screen tearing on wiiu and handled split screen graphics better. Less graphic down grading. The only REAL downer that was different from the other versions was no DLC. PS4/WiiU Yes, I’ll be buying this day one. That is if I have any money left because of the other games that are coming out Linskarmo Good for them. We need more devs with this sort of attitude. discuss Might get angry birds. only god can judge me Great news from any perspective that you view this situation its a win win for Nintendo.We all know Nintendo’s first party exclusives is where Nintendo shines the most and any support from a third party company will be a added bonus a day one pick up for me plus free online.I went in gamestop and bought my wii u deluxe and enjoy every minute of it. Wanderlei Glad Activision see the senses in bringing their premier series to every platform possible. Titan4.0 I’m so getting this. Day one purchase for me ;^) Super Mario Another copy/paste game. Last thing I’d want on Wii U. However, it sells like mad, so I’ll take it for the sake of Nintendo. WiiUisgaming Finally WiiUisgaming I hope this game has WII U graphics and not ps3 or xbox360 graphics Merrfn I hope this game has Xbox One, PS4, PS3 and Xbox 360 DLC. Me Gusta Me Gusta DLC. ICHI I’m really starting to like this me gusta joke Me Gusta Me Gusta potentially sarcastic comment. ICHI No sarcasm it was just a grower of a joke and now it makes me smile 🙂 Me Gusta Me Gusta making people smile. No Me Gusta smiley faces like this, 🙂 Me Gusta smiley faces like this, 🙂 ChariotMan7 What is this Me Gusta Me Gusta Me Gusta SMH. ICHI Yay I can’t wait to play diablo thr…. F#*@! ChariotMan7 By Activision still showing faith in the Wii U system by pitting this game on it. EA is Seriously Fucked now by them abrandoning the Wii U entirely, they are in Seriously trouble now seriously Lol. Me Gusta Me Gusta trouble. Zombie Boy EA have already started back-pedalling. It started soon after the XBox One announcement, with them admitting that the Frostbite engine CAN run on Wii U, they just haven’t got around to scaling it yet… sup3rnoah Hmm, maybe for christmas. I plan on playing wind waker and donkey kong around that time, but I love the support! Super Mario I see all of you…..:) Martijn Plasmans Great! Looking forward to it even though i’m a bit tired of the series. Maybe this will will spark the attention. They know they have to make it fresh to make some gamers return since MW3. XxLitning_StrikerxX Now only if we get the good version and not the one with no DLC and other downers….. XxLitning_StrikerxX also the wiiu needs a larger user base too by putting more youtube ads that say now on WiiU or some stuff like that Smartass2 From what I’ve seen online you should be able to use the Wiimote. thesupertomek i hope the hit detection won’t be as fucked up as it is in bo2 Steven Scott now we just need all the extras too Me Gusta Me Gusta extras. Me Gusta DLC. Møhåmmęd Jårmøn Time to show Activision some love WiiU owners Alex Damer I hope we getting DLC’s this time and updates. In BO2 we only received updates until march… majora :D I’m so excited!…… Said no Zelda fan ever Aamir Islam lol Rockband8 wii u won’t get dlc because there are not enough money to make dlc for the wii u.ps3 and xbox and other console has enough money to make a dlc.
