The saga of Watch Dogs on the Wii U has been a long one, with some interviews from the developer hinting that the game may have been pushed back to 2015. While this left many people worried that the game wouldn’t be seen on Nintendo’s console until more than a year after the release of the other consoles and PC, it looks like Ubisoft is still targeting a Fall 2014 release date for the title. Ubisoft originally pushed back the Wii U version earlier this year, stating it wanted to give its Budapest studio enough time with the title to perfect the GamePad integration. The game will be launching on May 27 for Xbox 360/One, PlayStation 3/4, and PC. Since that announcement we’ve seen numerous interviews and statements from Ubisoft that the Wii U version of the game will be worth the wait. Will you be picking up this game if it happens to release this fall? That puts it close to Super Smash Bros. territory and we still don’t know what other games will be available this fall, which is typically a pretty busy season when it comes to gaming. It’s likely the Wii U version of Watch Dogs may not even perform that well with a release date so far removed from the other consoles and PC. What do you think? local_offer Nintendo ubisoft Watch Dogs wii u stars Further Reading Consumer council in Europe alleges Nintendo i Ubisoft has more plans for the Switch palomino blue Please be true. Give me a definite date with no more delays. I’ll be picking this up for Wii U definitely. Lil J Moore Don’t care still picking it up for WiiU when it releases. jjbredesen Good, although some developers don’t get my support *chough “EA *cough Ubisoft deserves it, they are delaying the game, but that is because they are using the gamepad and tweaking it to actually run how it is supposed to. ben Honestly? Ubi… EA has made the best port so far. Most wanted U is actually a really good game, once you sort the controller out to make the acceleration analog. jjbredesen EA is a publisher not develope 😛 Ubi is the one that has tried to support Wii U the hardest all of there games so far except from the new AC game has come to Wii U and all the ports have been good, no problem with them. If you look at the few EA ports on the system most of them are shit, but Must Wanted U was a good port that i agree on. DragonSilths I see you have been fooled by Ubifails fake smile. They never cared to support Wii U. matthew garcia If ubisoft never cared for wii u then who does. Indies are on there but people play alot more indie games on cell phones Daniel Gonzalez Not to mention PC. Capt. Smoker I always say that when people kneel before it like it’s some kind of indie pumping machine, compared to Vita and even the ps4, it’s a pretty empty library, if people loved indies so much, goodness knows why they don’t just invest in a mini pc or something, I swear, them N fanboys will say anything to defend the Wii U, even though, they most likely know it’s a garbage machine, at least it’s good for the kissanime mobile site though, anime galore…. something has to make up for lack of games in all departments I suppose lol. Daniel Gonzalez True. Whenever I see great indie games, I prefer them on PC. Steam sales are more appealing than the prices on VC, PSN and Live. If that’s all Wii U has going for it, it’s in a heap of trouble. Capt. Smoker I’m incredibly tempted towards a steam box, I have a huge library of games linked to my account, I imagine I’ll be able to simply redownload them onto it, unlike the Wii U, a completely closed off console without something as simple as an account system, Nintendo are just too weird, for no real good reason either. Commander Raichu ehh they need a new freash breath of air http://s2.quickmeme.com/img/09/09af900313d7b1f0374ccc9dc40a67d9f4a93c10189cc357b7298c264bb26635.jpg jrob23 idiot troll Capt. Smoker I fail to see how I am, just my opinion, their isn’t really anything exclusive to the wii u on the indie front outside of pokemon rumble u, mighty switch force and dr luigi, nothing that’s worth all that much anyway, plenty of indie devs are skipping it and plenty favour the ps4 and ps3, so sorry you don’t agree with my completely logical opinions. Lol jrob23 ” N fanboys will say anything to defend the Wii U, even though, they most likely know it’s a garbage machine, at least it’s good for the kissanime mobile site though, anime galore…. something has to make up for lack of games in all departments I suppose lol.” these are the remarks of an idiot troll. not logical opinions. Big difference DragonSilths Not many people is who. Gentle Robot Eh, they seriously out-mario’d nintendo with Rayman Legends. It’s the best Wii U game so far. The DKC game pales in comparison in every way – design, style, execution, fun, replayability. They took out everything that was growing pointless about platformers (lives, time limits, linearity, checkpoints) and added incredible ideas like the daily challenges. Ultrasyd I really think the same. Rayman is quite fresh compared to nintendo’s platformers Daniel Gonzalez I enjoyed the game. It’s a shame that it sold so bad on each platform. It deserved better sales. MetroidZero ZombiU is an epic game. I wouldn’t say, “never.” Justin Bieber Never say never. Never, never, never, never. Donaald No wonder they kept releasing games when everyone else wasn’t Rinslowe My Wii U library is living proof Ubisoft has had a real and tangible interest in Wii U as a platform. It’s the stigma, lack of support from Wii U owners and a lack of returns that is forcing Ubisoft to shy away from it. Nintendo still are not doing enough to push the install base higher. Neither are they doing enough to assist their partners like Ubisoft in getting the right kinds of exposure in advertising and promotion of their titles. Ubisoft deserve a Nintendo funded or partly funded bundle complete with a model Jack Daw brig for their solid effort in AC4… DragonSilths They made themselves look like saints which wasn’t hard to do with the way all other devs were being. They simply didn’t want to be thought of as the same as those other devs, they don’t give a fuck about Nintendo or the Nintendo fans lol, they just wanted to make you think they cared, you can drink all their Kool-Aid, but I wont. Look behind the curtain and see what they truly are, a place that is barely and better then EA. treating their employee’s like bitches, or perhaps you were not aware of the shit the creator of Assasin’s Creed had with them when they fired him, froze his projects, literally tossed him out of the building, he couldn’t grab his stuff, couldn’t say good bye to his friends and former team. He was enraged and was going to sue Ubisoft for Assassins Creed and take it away from them. Though it seems that never went anywhere. So you go ahead and continue to think your getting support cause they give a fuck about you, when in reality they only care for the money in your pocket. Daniel Gonzalez “So you go ahead and continue to think your getting support cause they give a fuck about you, when in reality they only care for the money in your pocket.” That’s all businesses my friend. Nintendo, Sony, Microsoft and third parties have that in common. They want your money. Nintendo is no exception to the rest. Believing otherwise, is rather foolish. It’s always about the money, no matter how it’s accomplished. Lol. DragonSilths There are some out there that don’t have money as the number 1 priority. Yes they are in the minority. For example, my Studio. Its all about having a fun good time making something from out imagination into a reality. If your in the gaming industry just for money then your like Microsoft, you have no passion. In which case leave and don’t come back. Money is nothing but a trivial material possession. Rinslowe Yeah, some bad things happened to a decent bloke. But Ubisoft is a large corporation. If you’ve ever worked for one (In my case two), then you’d know there are assholes on every level. That doesn’t mean Ubisoft are the Devil. But large companies do attrack a certain crowd at the executive levels. No changing that. DragonSilths Ubisoft isn’t the Devil, that’s EA. Ubisoft is simply a demon in hell that works for the Devil. Capt. Smoker Everything you said, 110% correct. Nintenjoe82 They got a decent bundle for launch, its game sold 600,000 copies on a brand new console and Ubisoft think that is a huge failure. They have since released loads of very low selling games on the other consoles and skipped Wii U with them despite most of the games already being available on MS or Sony consoles and not on a Nintendo. Rinslowe There was an official boxed Wii U AC4 bundle? Nintenjoe82 No I was referring to ZombiU. It sold ok but not millions, Ubi basically said it was a failure. I think the game has a following and would deserve a sequel but they’ve written it off already. Rinslowe True. It looked as though they wrote it off officially in AC4, lol. When the mention of Zombie’s being a commercial failure was made in game. It would be a shame if Ubisoft abandons the Wii U completely for AAA titles. But apart from the latest AC game apparently for “next gen” systems only, I don’t think the evidence for that outcome is conclusive just yet. Even so it looks at least there won’t be a Zombie U 2, any time soon. Nintenjoe82 I don’t know how they expected more than 500,000 copies of a difficult FPS to be sold at launch alongside CoD, AC3 and loads of 1st and 2nd party Nintendo games with next to no marketing. Bad reviews didn’t help but Sony and MS would have just advertised it more in that situation like they did with Ryse and Knack. I think Nintendo should fun a sequel but keep a watchful eye on development and not let them release it at a stupid time like on the same day as Smash, Zelda, X, etc. etc. Nintenjoe82 agree! Mwgly i havent seen south park though. jjbredesen what? Nintenjoe82 Have you actually played any of the EA games? ME3 was better on Wii U by miles. Ubisoft have come nowhere near to it in terms of gamepad features. EA might hate Nintendo but their developers have really tried. Should have been the trilogy but doesnt stop it being a great game. FIFA 13 is alright on Wii U and has relevant gamepad features. Having played FIFA 13 on PC, PS3 and Wii U I honestly believe the reviewers never played the Wii U version and made assumptions or just copied each other. The missing features are nowhere near as big a deal as reviewers said and the difference in physics engine is a bonus on Wii U compared to PS3. NFS MW was a good port of an average game. Nothing more D.M.T Are you sure the new AC game is the only game from Ubi not coming to Wii U? Where’s The Crew for Wii U? Where’s Trials Fusion? Where’s the next Far Cry game? Where’s South Park Stick Of Truth? Where’s The Division? Ubisoft is not a huge supporter of Wii U Ultrasyd They just gave us the best platformer, period. Mario is dull compared to Rayman. I mean that for the gameplay, the artistic aspect, and the technics. Ubisoft is the studio who made most of my Wii U games. The Division would not sell on Wii U, for the same reason as a games like Assassin’s Creed or Watch Dogs. I realise now that most Nintendo players don’t give a £#c! if it’s not Mario. Nintenjoe82 I almost agree but I think ME3 was a better port than NFS MW. Basically EA didn’t do a bad job on any of their Wii U games. FIFA is pretty buggy but the new features use the gamepad better than anything Ubi have come up with. Ultrasyd I’m thanksful to EA for Mass Effect 3, it’s the game I enjoyed the most on Wii U. And NFS MW looks very good and is nice to play when, like me, you’re not a good driver 😀 jrob23 I thought the issue with ME3 was because the were charging full price for a game and not offering the trilogy which was cheaper and on PS360. I know I didn’t buy it because I hadn’t played the first two and I didn’t own another console but the Wii U Nintenjoe82 yeah that is more the issue, not anything wrong with the actual game and the quality of the port is very high compared to something like Splinter Cell. People on here were spouting the typical anti EA fanboy nonsense while defending Ubisoft who are no better. DragonSilths That’s what they claim, yet no Wii U footage has been shown. More then likely there never was a Wii U version, so that’s why there was a “Delay” they had to actually make the thing. indirect76 Why lie about it? They are only going to lose sales by doing so. DragonSilths Lose sales? Oh nooooo 10 sales goes down to 5. indirect76 OK, but why lie about it? DragonSilths Because their Ubisfail. indirect76 Yes, but exactly what would be their motivaton for telling a lie like this? tronic307 These are from the Nintendo E3 direct: 1. Y Button to enter vehicle when it would be X on any other platform that uses letters for buttons. 2. “Mario” graffiti tag on right wall in alley. readypembroke You sure? How do you know the controls? It could be video of either the 360 or One versions. Also the Mario part makes no sense at all. tronic307 Just curious, what do you think the graffiti reads? readypembroke It reads Mario BUUTTT that doesn’t mean anything. It will most likely be in all versions. It is just random graffiti. Doesn’t mean it’s Wii U footage. DragonSilths That says Mario??? Looks like Moreo or something…And the X button for entering a vehicle…oh please that’s Xbox only not PlayStation, and actually in all games you usually use right bumper on Xbox to get on a vehicle or enter one. Nintenjoe82 looks more like Wario WhatITdoITdo You’re an idiot, xbox consoles use ‘y’ in most games to enter vehicles This a leaked screenshot of the Wii U version jjbredesen You are to pessimistic 😉 They are working on it, but it had to be delayed so they can make it better. It would be a waist of money to cancel it, and its on there store XD DragonSilths Then should have at least shown off gameplay when all the other versions were showed off. Its basically like Aliens Colonial Marines all over again. jjbredesen They have shown the Wii U version if you look at some of the trailers there its says “enter vehicle press Y” and its a round grey Y they have never said witch version has been shown of in the trailers so i am sure the Wii U version has been shown, but the gamepad stuff was not ready. DragonSilths Y doesn’t prove Wii U. Could be PC could be Xbox. With PC i’m sure its customizable controls. And same with Xbox you can use X or Left Bumper or Right Bumper to get in vehicles…so it being Y wouldn’t be a big shock. jjbredesen Yeah i do agree, i just think its more plausible that its Wii U, as using Y on PC would be really weird, but i could be Xbone. Nintenjoe82 If you’re right, they’ve told a very convoluted lie about what they’re doing with their developers on this game but I kind of get the feeling that the “team working on the Wii U port” were actually an office waiting for the 360 version to do their port from. There’s probably a board with this written on it in their office ‘IDEAS FOR GAMEPAD’ 1. Off TV Play 2. Map 3. SP-937-215 Please understand, it takes extra time for developers to disable all of the DLC possibilities for the Wii U version :p Zackary Bruley I agree with both you and Lil J. I have bad feeling for releasing games like this for one reason: If the game flops, the Wii U version may get its plug pulled. I think Ubi. should make EVERYONE wait for it. They made Nintendo wait for Rayman because M$ wants muti-plats to be released on xbox first or at the same time. Ubi should do this to the others to show the same respect. That’s just one man’s opinion~ jjbredesen Yeah i agree, but in the end its only about one thing and thats money… Nintenjoe82 They are delaying the game because it wasn’t finished and the Wii U port is such a low priority that they sidelined it until the others were ready. Hopefully the studio that started the Wii U port were actually using the gamepad and will still be able to port the additional features but, judging by most of Ubi’s recent Wii U offerings, I suspect it will just be for off-tv and a map if we’re really lucky. jjbredesen Yeah it is a lower priority, but i do think they could use it for a lot, they could use it as his “hacking phone” sort of like in Mass Effect so you can access certain things very fast, and solve puzzles. And using it for a map in open world games like Watch dogs will be a must. And i do think we will get of tv play. Nintenjoe82 I’m worried there’s a noticeboard in the Ubi Budapest office saying: ‘IDEAS FOR GAMEPAD’ 1. Off TV Play 2. Map 3. Ultrasyd One thing that many people seem to forget : rembember that Rayman is gorgeous and is 1080p 60fps all the way. Mario is far behind, and there is no excuse of an early dev kit, because Rayman was quite early too. You should also all remember that Rayman and Zombie U use the gamepad in a very clever and interesting way compared to any game by Nintendo. Commander Raichu i dont care when it releases as long as it comes out 😀 The Clockwork Being Yeah right thing to do.Instead of pointlessly complaining at about it and boycotting it. Because if we don’t buy it because of this, Ubisoft will use that as an excuse to justify not bringing any other game to the console Rich Garriques still only buying wii u version sorry going to have to miss out on other versions. val berger Major problem here is that it won’t really sell good and won’t receive any further DLC support, thus fanboys will, like always assume this would’ve been completely different if ubi had released the WiiU version along the others. I’m actually just glad they are bringing it to the WiiU. I don’t care too much about DLC as I only care about DLCs in very few games. Actually, this whole delay isn’t too bad as the devs seem to be under a certain pressure to release it as soon as possible, so by fall 2014 they may have already fixed all major bugs and flaws, plus I wanted to wait for reviews anyways before I order this game, so I wouldn’t be one of those day1-buyers in any case. To keep things short: I seem to be the perfect target audience for the WiiU version 🙂 And I’m giving some Bonus-credits for the WiiU version’s ability to play this game off-screen. When I’ve been playing GTAV on my PS3, I really hated the fact that they didn’t release that game on WiiU as Open world games are the perfect use case for the gamepad. While playing on the TV you often don’t really feel like doing sidequests or just stumbling around through the streets doing nothing. But when playing WiiU before going to sleep at night in bed, it’s perfect to dive into that virtual space once again, just exploring and wasting some nighttime. And basically that’s one of the major reasons I’m excited to play that game. On the WiiU it’s just more fun to explore stuff as you can play in different situations. You could just sit in some park while preparing your lunch next to the gamepad. Nintenjoe82 Me too but I suspect the best additional feature will be a map. gamingpalooza agreed… i’ll wait for the wii u version. ActivesiN something to bridge the gap between mario kart 8 and smash, perfect! RennanNT Not perfect yet until Nintendo announces Hirule Warriors (or Bayo2) and X at E3 to fill the gap before and after this game. *cross fingers* ActivesiN Bayonetta 2 for sure, Hyrule warriors im not sold on yet, it looks super repetitive , if its like $30-40 ill pick it up but not at $60 X looks like a beast of a game greengecko007 Hopefully Hyrule Warriors gets shown off well and shows hows it’s not just a Dynasty Warriors game with a Zelda paint job. That alpha footage they showed last year looked awful. ActivesiN E3 should have some more info on it, yeah I agree just looked like a skinned Dynasty Warrior game Rinslowe Lol, that footage shown last year looked like stock standard Dynasty Warriors… I don’t think it has the ability by default to look a whole lot better than it did then. greengecko007 At this point all we can do is wait for E3 and hope for the best, expecting the worst. I hope Hyrule Warriors doesn’t end up being as terrible as we saw it, because I fear for how a bad Zelda spinoff would reflect on the rest of the series, especially since we are supposed to be getting something concrete about Zelda U this year. Rinslowe True. But I’m not getting my hopes up on a game based from Dynasty Warriors. It kinda has that history. Should be totally playable though. Rinslowe I think Bayo 2 is a done deal on that point… X… Hmmm, if a 2014 release is even on the cards. That would be the definition of perfect to me. RennanNT In JPN Direct, X had the same “2014” as Bayo 2. So, realistically speaking, its likely to be 14Q4 Japan and 15Q1 World or later 🙁 But hope is the last to die!!! 8ruc3 Day one buy for me! I’ll wait even if I have the 360… palomino blue I’d expect the Wii U version to be superior to PS360 (if they truly are taking the extra time to work with gamepad functionality) but I doubt the same holds true graphically for XBONE/PS4. For owners of PS360 and Wii U it’s probably worth it to wait. 8ruc3 I don’t care about the PS4 and Xbox One. I’m ok with my 360 and my Wii U. I’m not saying they’re not good. I’m just not interested. So it’s not important for me that their version will be better graphically. Spencer Manigat So it’s coming out one year after it was originally supposed to. Typical. Ace J i will pick this up….after i pick Destiny and play the hell out of it after a few months. Charlieblizz I’m curious about it, I want to play it, but it depends what else is out and wanting my money. Funny thing is May 27th wouldn’t have been a great release date, either, being so close to MK8. Ultrasyd This why the delay is not a big issue in my opinion. Everyone complains, but sure they would choose Mario Kart over Watch Dogs matthew garcia Only within the wii u install base which isn’t that big. I seem to notice that the majority of people even kids have problems finding anything mario appealing. I guess it’s just a new day and age Volshebink But… It will be close to SSB. I’m curious to see how they workout those back-to-back releases. bizzy gie This version better not be gimped. It should have every feature the other platforms have. We Wii U owners shouldn’t have to wait LONGER for an inferior version. Daniel Gonzalez Something tells me, Wii U owners will complain despite it being complete. jrob23 if it was complete AND on time then there’d be no reason to complain. what 3rd party game that fit that description have Wii U owners complained about? greengecko007 Wii U owners complained about Assassin’s Creed 3 and 4, both of which were great versions of the games, because they did not receive the DLC, which is an extra purchase and does not make the basic $60 in any way incomplete. It’s also pure hypocrisy since most Nintendo fans are against DLC anyway. Daniel Gonzalez Well said. jrob23 stupid troll jrob23 like I said. complete!! Any missing features whether online, multi player, co op, DLC, etc is not a complete game. You can cherry pick why this feature or that feature is or is not more important or important at all. AC 3 came out months later. So not sure why you even used that as an example. AC4 was about as close as you can come but it WAS missing features/option you could get on other versions AND let’s be honest…it should have looked as good as the others. This early in the cycle the Wii U is plenty able to keep up with the others. Trolls won’t admit that so I am not trying to convince you guys. So I am still waiting for a single 3rd party game that isn’t missing something and came out at the same time. jrob23 still waiting trolls greengecko007 I hate to pull this card, but… Maybe us “trolls” have other things to do than respond instantaneously? jrob23 5 hours is not instantaneous and you seem to respond pretty quick when you think you are right lol greengecko007 I’m so sorry it took me 5 hours to respond. As I literally just said, I have other things to do, so I can’t be expected to respond instantaneously. Daniel Gonzalez I find it funny when people use the troll card and leave bait comments of their own. It certainly is hypocrisy at its finest. Must be quite simple to get under ones skin on this website. Lol. Well said comment. Some of us have other things we have to do during the day. jrob23 your posts are literally all over every single potentially negative article this site has run for the past year. And you don’t and never will own a Wii U. Tell me again how it is that we are supposed to believe you have anything else to do but go on sites of products that don’t interest you. Daniel, you are just a d bag. You suck in so many ways. At least Magnus is funny with his trolling and greengeck has an occasional word of wisdom and gives Nintendo credit. You are just a waste of a human being. Go through your posts, barely any upvotes. It’s because we hate you and your pointless rants. Yet you’ll find upvotes for the others. Because we recognize at least some contribution. Let me guess your comeback “I could care less what people think” Cheers Mate! Daniel Gonzalez Hmmm… well thought out post. Let’s pick this apart one piece at a time. I’ll make this nice and sweet, just for you. Cause I like you alot. ;P “your posts are literally all over every single potentially negative article this site has run for the past year. And you don’t and never will own a Wii U. Tell me again how it is that we are supposed to believe you have anything else to do but go on sites of products that don’t interest you.” That’s the thing. I’m not worried if you believe me or not. Why would I simply care what you think about that? I allow people to believe what they wish, and feel no desire to prove to anyone, on what I do over the internet. Sounds simple, right? “Daniel, you are just a d bag. You suck in so many ways. At least Magnus is funny with his trolling and greengeck has an occasional word of wisdom and gives Nintendo credit.” Looks like I was right that its easy to get under your skin. You’re more than welcomed to call me what you like. I’m not one to fall into the childish name calling my friend. I’ll leave that to you. Magnus is certainly funny, and I like his sense of humor. Perhaps you should try it yourself some time rather to be so grumpy. Funny is subjective, as I’m sure you know. More importantly, I’m here for my own entertainment. If people love or hate my humor, it’s no skin off my back. Maybe just yours. “You are just a waste of a human being.” The anger meter is certainly over 9000 on this one. I guess I was right the first time. Certainly grumpy. “Go through your posts, barely any upvotes. It’s because we hate you and your pointless rants. Yet you’ll find upvotes for the others. Because we recognize at least some contribution.” I get this one often. While I appreciate the upvotes whenever you feel I contribute to whatever you consider a contribution and get upvoted, it certainly doesn’t affect how I comment. Which if you see all of them, I don’t seem to worry about it. I appreciate you worrying for me and are looking out for my well being. Seeing as you’re quite upset, you may wanna take care of yours. “Let me guess your comeback “I could care less what people think” Cheers Mate!” Nah, it’s certainly not needed, nor do I wish to feed into your silly desires. I commend you for trying, but it only gives me a good laugh or two that you went out of your way to show your maturity and intelligence level. Difference between you and me jrob, is that I don’t go on a temper tantrum rant. Perhaps even you can learn something from a “troll.” Always a pleasure to listen to what you have to say. Cheers matey. ;P Rinslowe “I allow people to believe what they wish” Actually this is not something which “you” allow, but something which you simply have to accept. People will inherently believe what they choose based on reasons varied, but not related to what you as an individual have necessarily impacted. Hubris otherwise… Daniel Gonzalez Not exactly what I was trying to imply, but noted. As for the hubris comment, I’ll simply leave this right here and put this discussion to a close. Later mate! 😛 http://02varvara.files.wordpress.com/2011/01/01-pot-calls-kettle-black.jpg Rinslowe Haha, fair enough. But so wrong… 🙂 Rinslowe You remind me of Wormtongue from “The Lord of the Rings”. Lol. In everyone’s ear spouting words of reinforcement but only so long as it suits your overarching agenda. Honestly looks to me like your on a bit of a recruitment crusade. Sad that some of the better neutral individuals on this site are a target for unknowingly supporting your concern trolling… Speaking of hypocrisy you would be one of the easiest people frequenting this site to take offence to the slightest of differences. Daniel Gonzalez “In everyone’s ear spouting words of reinforcement but only so long as it suits your overarching agenda. Honestly looks to me like your on a bit of a recruitment crusade. Sad that some of the better neutral individuals on this site are a target for unknowingly supporting your concern trolling…” Sounds like someones being self fulfilling again. So no need to explain that one to you. “Speaking of hypocrisy you would be one of the easiest people frequenting this site to take offence to the slightest of differences.” If giving my own point of view counts as taking offense to the slightest differences, then that is certainly comical. Sounds to me you’re frequent on my comments and take offense to the slightest differences. Works both ways, but I’m sure you don’t like the idea of having your own medicine thrown at you. Thank you again for the entertaining, yet imprecise response. Always a pleasure. Now if you’ll excuse, I have some partying to do. Cheers. <3 Rinslowe Lol. Daniel. At least you didn’t try to deny it. Giving “your” own view is simply another way of saying. Daniel Gonzalez has a conern troll agenda on Wii U Daily to stir up conflicts with it’s Nintendo fanbase. But I think you linked the wrong imaginary party, lol. Awww…… Daniel Gonzalez True story. greengecko007 DLC is always extra. I can understand that people want this, but it is not part of the original package, and not having it doesn’t make the initial purchase gimped. That’s not even debatable. Would you like another example? Rayman Legends, built from the ground up for the Wii U specifically, and was the definitive version. jrob23 Rayman Legends was delayed on Wii U and exclusivity taken away. Worst example you could give. Only trolls and EA type devs seem to think the Wii U has graphical limitations in comparison. I stand corrected on AC3. But it did come out later and with any big release, people that wanted to play it bought it by then. Strange how a 3rd party game can be the definitive version on the Wii U with all it’s weak hardware and specs huh? So…still waiting for an answer. A 3rd party game ON TIME, with no missing features. greengecko007 Rayman Legends came out on the Wii U the same time as the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions. The entire game was delayed, not just the Wii U version. The game could have come out earlier if it would have been a Wii U exclusive, but Ubisoft also used the extra time to improve the game. “Strange how a 3rd party game can be the definitive version on the Wii U with all it’s weak hardware and specs huh?” Nope, not particularly. It makes perfect sense to me. As I said, the game was made specifically for the Wii U, and features that were on the Wii U version, such as gamepad support, are not available on any of the other versions. “So…still waiting for an answer. A 3rd party game ON TIME, with no missing features.” No, what you’re actually waiting for is for a game that you will very rarely get; a multiplatform game that is superior on the Wii U. Jon AC 4 had reductions compared to the other consoles. We lost the chance for content with AC4 as they denied the DLC for the Wii U owners. Less incentive to get it on the WIi U because in order to play the whole story, you needed it on PC, PS4, or XOne. Even though it was a DLC, it still had content that others were able to get an play where as Wii U owners never got that privilege even though many of us would have gladly paid for it such as myself. jrob23 trolls don’t care about facts. It’s frustrating trying to have normal conversations because once you win an argument they disappear to throw out stupid claims on some other topic. So you will spin your wheels so to speak. I think from now on I will just reply with ‘troll’ after every one of their posts because nothing you say or facts you give will make one iota of difference. greengecko007 Assassin’s Creed 3 was released before the PS4 and Xbox One were even announced, and had Wii U exclusive gamepad features, making it easy to mark it as the definitive version. I can understand that some people wanted DLC for AC4, and it sucks to not have that option, but that doesn’t make the original game gimped in any way. It would be correct to say that the game wasn’t supported, not that it was incomplete. Jon I don’t see anywhere calling AC4 incomplete. I just mention that there is less content as the Wii U owners were never able to get the DLC. I don’t know about you but why would you buy a game on the Wii U if you could not get some of the DLC which is on every other system? Most people would want to experience it all so they would have a lot less incentive to buy it. That is why if someone had both a Wii U and another platform, they’d buy it on the other platform. Please do not put words into my mouth. Also, I don’t remember mentioning AC3 either. greengecko007 I think you misunderstand. jrob23, the person I was originally responding to, asked for examples of games that were complete and on time that Wii U owners complained about, that is why I brought AC3 and AC4 into the discussion (even though AC3 came out on the Wii U about 2 weeks later). Back to your topic of DLC though, I can understand some people not getting the Wii U version because it wasn’t supported with DLC. However, most people not pay do not purchase all or even any of the DLCs for games, and Assassin’s Creed is no different. Looking at the abysmal sales on the Wii U, it doesn’t look like some people opted out of a Wii U version because of DLC, it looks like Wii U owners didn’t buy the game at all. tronic307 I have AC 3 and it just doesn’t look right in my Wii U collection. Should have got it on Steam. greengecko007 Fair enough. It looks great in mine though. jjbredesen Now that i agree on, but if its not on par with PS4 and Xbone version people will complain and that is stupid, its not possible to make it as good, but it can be better than 360 version no problem. and if they can add the gamepad stuff and use it in a creative way the version could even be on par with PS4 in terms of gameplay or even better, but not when it comes to graphics. People will always complain… Daniel Gonzalez If people are going to complain that it’s not on par with the PS4 and Xbox One ports in terms of graphics, then they set themselves up for disappointment. When the Wii U port fails to sell, you know you’ll never hear the end of it. Even if this game was on time, I doubt it would had made a difference. Ultrasyd It would make no difference at all ETeach I really doubt that will be the thing they complain about. Gameplay over graphics has become something of a manta for Wii U owners. I think lack of gamepad support would really be the point of contention with this game. greengecko007 A lot of Nintendo fanboys pull the “gameplay over graphics” only when it’s convenient for them. When the Wii U was first announced, and throughout it’s launch period, we got a lot of comments like, “The Wii U is the best console ever it has better graphics than the PS3 or 360”. Daniel Gonzalez Yep. Then when PS4 and Xbox One come around and obviously are going to outshine in that department, then it’s the “graphics aren’t everything” excuse. tronic307 They aren’t, and I tend to buy every console, plus I own a GeForce GTX 780. Rinslowe SMH… Most people are out there with valid complaints regarding ports especially. And all you can focus on is hearsay about what you believe the “so called” fanboys are going to do, when a fictional event rolls around. Lol to this self fulfilling nonsense. It adds nothing to the topic… “Then when PS4 and Xbox One come around and obviously are going to outshine in that department, then it’s the “graphics aren’t everything” excuse.” Daniel Gonzalez I’m so sorry Rinslowe, but you got me on “Ask me if I care Friday.” Check back later when I’m able to meddle with you long enough to give you your self fulfilling counter argument. Cheers mate! http://blog.just-eat.ie/wp-content/uploads/2013/10/Cheers-Gatsby.jpg Rinslowe Do you fancy yourself a bit of a Leonardo Di Caprio there Daniel? Lol, I was around before you took your profile pic down remember… Daniel Gonzalez Not at all. I had to use Di Caprio to tone down my handsome good looks. Many people got offended and there were riots all across the website. To correct this matter, the photo in question was taken down to prevent any future outbursts and maintain order. There’s not a huge demand for tech gadgets(referring to your avatar) but I do know an attractive webcam that is certainly up your alley that likes hot HD action. To calm your envious tendencies, I left a nice picture to sooth those negative thoughts. Have a good one. Rinslowe “Not at all. I had to use Di Caprio to tone down my handsome good looks.” Like I said, I was around before you took your profile pic down mate. So no, just no… Jon and it was something Wii U owners said knowing the graphic capabilities of the PS4 and next box would have been superior to the Wii U greengecko007 While claiming that those systems wouldn’t be coming anytime soon. But now we see that the Wii U only got a 1 year head start, which it squandered. Rinslowe Nintendo are solely to blame in that department, I reckon. Sure a lot of ports could have been better, but honestly what to expect when based on CPU intensive 360 code… Wii U struggles a little bit if the CPU is not optimised and then we miss out on those DX 10.1 comparable features as well due to this reason. Nintendo did not design a system that was mean’t to destroy last gen systems powerwise. And hence the need to work to it’s specifics in order to see those clear gains. Ports obviously almost never do. Not because of a lack of power, but solely because Nintendo failed to cultivate an environment where third parties could enjoy returns on their investments. So who can blame third party studios for doing only what is necessary to get the game working. greengecko007 In my personal, but in no way professional, opinion, it seems to be partially what you have said, but also some of what others have said before. I don’t doubt for an instance that the Wii U is more capable than some give it credit for, but I also don’t believe that everything that is being done on the PS4 or Xbox One can be done on the Wii U just as well. Rinslowe Haha, no that’s right. But in all fairness and this is only in my opinion there’s not a ton of difference between DX10.1 and 11 that has been utilised in PC so far to date (correct me of course if I’m wrong). Wii U first party titles will show that it has enough goods to provide what is most important this generation (within the realm of reality for all next gen systems) – dynamic lighting/ deferred shading/ lighting etc.. But PS4 and Xbox One will just do it a lot better. Obviously if the ports continue to be based from last gen systems then we won’t see that true for third parties on Wii U. But that is again for obvious reasons. greengecko007 Everyone has their opinions on where Nintendo went wrong with the Wii U, but I don’t think hardware choice is it. “Wii U first party titles will show that it has enough goods to provide what is most important this generation (within the realm of reality for all next gen systems) – dynamic lighting/ deferred shading/ lighting etc..” I agree to this completely. I can’t find it right now, but I remember reading an article on the Wii U is “powerful enough”, and I think that still stands. Nintendo is just getting into HD, and as much as I respect their developers, I don’t think they would make their games have mind blowing “next gen” graphics even if they had the means to do so. Even Nintendo’s first party devs aren’t fully utilizing what the Wii U is capable of (though Mario Kart 8 seems to be ambitious). There’s also the fact that Nintendo’s relationship with third parties is rocky at the best, so there we can’t even be sure it would supported more if the Wii U was just like a PC. I think that if Nintendo concentrates hard on the Wii U and supports it with great games, it will end up being a great console, even if it doesn’t sell well. Rinslowe “There’s also the fact that Nintendo’s relationship with third parties is rocky at the best, so there we can’t even be sure it would supported more if the Wii U was just like a PC.” This is a comment we need to see more of. It’s more in line with reality than many of the quick fire assumptions people like to label Nintendo or third parties with and I totally agree. I think most western dev’s think Nintendo’s policies are just simply antiquated. And find it easier to work with the other two major players due to there more negotiable terms, infrastructures and more easily predictable directions… (On another note regarding Kart – and it only takes one title to show proof of concept or potential. But that is some quality DOF effects going on in there and some really nice deferred shading/ lighting…) greengecko007 I know you don’t like seeing fanboys rants, but I can assure you that once upon a time, this site wasn’t full of them. I remember early on when there would be articles about certain developers considering the Wii U or not considering the Wii U, and people accepted it for what it was. Many people made the analogy that it’s like Nintendo is trying to rebuilt a relationship after a bad break up. Nintendo can’t expect to win everybody back, and neither can Nintendo fans. It’s something that takes time. And even though they aren’t as significant, Nintendo being Indie friendly is at least a step in the right direction. jrob23 given the same amount of time developing for all three..no I don’t think you’d get the same quality game out of the wii u. I think that is my and other’s problems with people like trolls. You can’t admit that with more skill and given more time the Wii U could duplicate the results. Devs take the path of least resistance and they aren’t going to devote more time to a system that won’t sell its games. So they spend about the same amount of time on it as the easier to develop for PS4 and Xbone and surprise..different architecture…less understanding…worse results. This debate will never be settled because it would take a 3rd party dev to try their damndest to maximize all systems in order to see really where each stands. I have hope Project Cars will be that proof. But I am sure if it is, somehow some way that will be spun by trolls in the negative. Rinslowe In all honesty mate. Wii U is not as powerful as the other two consoles. That’s just a fact. It doesn’t mean that it’s underpowered in any way though, or that optimised games won’t look gorgeous. Some already do. And it’ll only get better. But saying that Wii U goes toe to toe with PS4 or Xbox One on a purely technical level is just not true. Project Cars will only prove Wii U can produce very nice looking visuals and hopefully that performance can be made to match. But it is not very likely unless the dev’s are looking for parity by design that the Wii U version will outdo the other two in the visual department. Ultimately though, as I keep saying. That’s not even a point of concern. Or at least it shouldn’t be… If a game like TLoU can inspire awe in it’s visuals on PS3, then we’re really past the point where games look unsightly in comparison to more powerful platforms. The newer versions will just look nicer. It doesn’t actually take anything away from the equation. jrob23 nobody said it was as powerful. I am not sure why you are schooling me on something I agree with. I am saying this early in the three’s cycle that the Wii U can hang and duplicate their results. It might take more time on the Wii U and more skill but they can do it. I think as we move forward the PS4 especially will really begin to show its power and the gap will increase. But that gap won’t be that drastic. Look at PC. The PS4 cannot compete power wise yet that gap isn’t so great that you wouldn’t want to play games on the PS4. I see comparison videos all the time and think how absurd it is that people argue over graphics. Titanfall on 360 I am sure is just as fun as on the Xbone One. Enough so that you don’t need to buy a new system just to play it. The Wii U on the other hand is a major jump up from the wii. I am playing Skyward Sword right now and it looks awful compared to Wii U games. Seems to me that it’s just easier to develop for Xbone and PS4 and devs have backed that up, even one’s who say the Wii U is plenty powerful. I think that is primarily the reason 3rd party devs can’t be bothered. It’s not as if there extra time and effort will result in better sales. Based on specs and speculation the world is convinced the Wii U is less powerful. Trolls found on this site think it’s barely above a PS360. These are the idiots I have a problem with. The louder their troll declarations the dumber they sound. I agree it appears that way. But I also believe that the Wii U is more powerful and more capable than given credit for. I think it will keep up just fine with Xbone not so much the PS4 as time goes on. But again, they make different games. They don’t use the same effects as the others so honestly we’ll never know. And like I said, even when shown proof the Wii U can hang there will be some excuse, like you just used: “But it is not very likely unless the dev’s are looking for parity by design” I literally predicted that and before the game even comes out people are making excuses. C’mon, just let it play out and stop insisting it’s not nearly as powerful or capable. The way some people talk you’d think the PS4 and Xbone weren’t already antiquated in PC terms. Geez, these aren’t that powerful guys. Rinslowe “nobody said it was as powerful. I am not sure why you are schooling me on something I agree with.” Not my intention mate. Must have read your comment wrong… jrob23 no offense, and I respect a lot of what you say, but you can’t say for a certainty that the Wii U can’t keep up with the others. You can assume based on PS4 and Xbone specs and what you know of the Wii U. But, the way the Wii U is designed is too complex for you and I and seemingly a lot of 3rd party devs. I’ve read that there is a lot of power that is untapped. I think it requires a deeper understanding then 3rd parties are willing to devote time to and that even Nintendo is learning. I know it is difficult to wade through the bullshit to get to the truth. You have the obviously biased companies that are working exclusively with Nintendo. You have the obviously turned off 3rd party devs that have axes to grind. Then you have Ubisoft who is making great games but not every game is coming to the Wii U. Trolls will point to that as due to hardware limitations. And maybe it is. I think it’s based on projected sales and cost/benefit analysis. All we can go on as far as being able to compare the three side by side are multi plats. There is inherent issues doing so though. Are these being optimized for one, two, or all three? Are they being gimped to be able to hit the biggest install bases (PS360)? We just can’t know. But throwing all of that out of the window, let’s examine the multi-plats that have hit all three. Personally, I have to assume the Wii U is not getting the same amount of attention as the others. I say this because the sales won’t be there, and the architecture is different. I have read that the PS4 and Xbone do a lot of the work whereas the Wii U must be coaxed into things. A less than motivated developer will not go that extra mile. I really hope you won’t argue with that point. Basically there is much less incentive to devote as much time on the Wii U and it DOES need it. But even throwing that out as many will disagree especially trolls, let’s talk about a few of them and compare. Assassins Creed IV https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lDrRuWKbTdE I can see a distinct difference. The PS4 is sharper and more detailed. Some scenes are more pronounced. BUT, the difference is not egregious. It looks to my eyes that this is a perfect example of the Wii U proving it’s in the same neighborhood. Close enough to appear to me to prove my theory that it could looks just as good if they gave it more love. I actually think Ubi did just the bare minimum on the Wii U version. It’s frame rate wasn’t even on par with PS360. I mean, c’mon. We all know Rayman Legends hangs with all versions and it has even been stated as being the definitive version. The reason being is it was built for the Wii U. So in essence, this is the one 3rd party game that was given that star treatment and lo and behold it’s the arguably the best. Why don’t we hear more about this? Is it low sales which means less attention? Is it that this proves the Wii U is fine power wise and that doesn’t support the notion that it is underpowered in relation to the others? Call of Duty Ghosts https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Naf-A-TE65o Almost the exact same difference in graphics as the AC4 comparison. It looks like not only the bare minimum was put into it but also from a less than talented and different team, which of course, we know it was. Still, despite the obvious lack of effort and skill it is apparent the Wii U has the ability to hang in certain aspects. Don’t you think my theory makes sense? Is it such a stretch to think that the Wii U versions of AC4, COD, Arkham Origins, etc simply are not getting the same treatment. Do you honestly believe they are willing and equipped or motivated to put in that extra effort? If so, why? What is their incentive? They know sales won’t be good. We all know how most of these devs view the kiddy machine. I think Kart and Smash look pretty damn impressive. I think they look the equal of anything either of the others have come out with. It’s more difficult to compare a game like that to Infamous Second Son and maybe you and others just can’t divorce yourselves from thinking ultra realism is at its core more graphically impressive and taxing on a system. It’s hard to convince people any different and Nintendo does not make those types of games so I am not sure we can settle that issue. I see it this way. Rayman Legends proves to me the Wii U is very close to the others in power because the extra love it received. I think Project Cars could be another game that has been given the requisite love just based on what the devs have been saying. I guess I just don’t like it when people say with certainty that the Wii U is not nearly as powerful when there isn’t a quantifiable way of proving one way or the other so it rubs me the wrong way when I hear it. What I do know and you seem to agree, is that the Wii U has, and will have some pretty amazing next gen games. The power will be more than enough to make the 1st party games the best games of all three as far as exclusives go. Rinslowe I certainly think my Wii U is as powerful as it needs to be to provide next gen experiences. And Nintendo’s first party titles are proof of that as more than just personal opinion… I played AC4 on PC and finished it…. Was in Aus and picked up a second hand copy for Wii U for cheap and out of curiosity mostly. There’s nothing shabby about that port at all. It’s as solid as it gets. Just lacking DLC… But big deal… I’ve been there already. jrob23 I think there was a patch that brought it in line with PS4 and Xbone. LOL…I saw that frame rate video too and of course the initial report of it being less than PS360 made news but the patch and fix did not. Typical Rinslowe Exactly… Digital Foundry are fiends for not updating their face-off articles after titles on Wii U especially receive updates. I asked my mate to bring over his copy of AC4 on PS3 and it’s not as polished as Wii U. Effects are missing and the textures are muddy in comparison. Another reason I just cannot take DF seriously as they claimed PS3 was on par with the 360 ver. But that’s unlikely as well… I’m not crazy over which version is better, I just wanted to test a theory… If media outlets are capable of openly spinning the facts, for what ever reason… It’s not something you would expect to be done so blatantly on a site as widespread as Eurogamer. But there it is… jrob23 is it worth owning on the PS3? Wondering if I should jump on the price drop. I have never gotten into them in the past but this seems the most unique of them all so maybe I would enjoy it Rinslowe I think so. It certainly wasn’t sub par on PS3. It’s the exact same game, but just not as sharp and missing a few alpha effects etc… ETeach Yeah, they were excited when they got a system that could compete graphically with the other systems of the time. But at least from my point of view, it wasn’t actually about the graphics, as much as it was the excitement that Wii U could finally get ports of games that the wii was severly underpowered to handle. That being said, fanboys will be fanboys. They come from all the systems, and they’re the worst of the worst. But I stand by my notion that the majority of people who complain (if there actually are complaints) will be about the gameplay enhancements, or lack thereof. Commander Raichu ehh i wont as long as its fun and i get to be a stalker.. im set 00EpicGamer00 Lol, “I get to be a stalker.” Basically Assassin’s Creed in a nutshell. Commander Raichu YES! Rinslowe *Something tells me you’ll complain about Wii U owners… Lol. Thomas Vienna I’ve lost my excitement for it already, but you never know, I might change my mind by then. val berger true, excitement and hype may be gone, not just with the WiiU version, still doesn’t necessarily change the interest in this title. Brandon If I only had a wii u and maro kart 8 and Watch dogs came out on the same day, if I couldnt get both I would get watch dogs. ben Then you sir need to get your head examined. YOu would choose the car wreck,(completely rebuilt, because it was boring) of a game over what could be almost perfect. Brandon Yes, because i would rather have an open world game which is going to be really fun then race in karts throwing turtle shells at people. ben How do you know it is going to be fun? Brandon I’ve seen gamplay. How would you know that mario kart 8 is going to be an almost perfect game? ben Reports of people who have actually played mariokart. All you have seen is game footage of watchdogs, no reports on how it plays. Brandon I rather see the gameplay instead of hearing about it. Ive seen gameplay for both, there both good games I just prefer watch dogs. MerryBlind . BLASPHEMY Ultrasyd Man, you see the kind of replies you get ? Wii U users are strange… they are all complaining about this delay, like “ubi shows no respect to us” but we all know where they would put their money if both games were released at the same time. This is pathetic. Black leg sanji exactly!!!!! i wouldn’t bother porting it over to wiiu at all it wont sell matthew garcia For me I would choose a more realistic racer like gran turismo or forza over mario kart. Mario kart is fun but it’s only somethin I play with my little sister. I’m more into actually enhancing the cars performance and seeing how it applies on the track like on gran turismo and forza Ultrasyd We need a good racing game on Wii U. I hope Project Cars won’t disapoint. After so many years and many versions of Mario Kart, I mostly enjoy playing MK with my wife and my son. matthew garcia I just get tired of every substitute game is mario on wii u. Play station has gran turismo wii u has mario kart other consoles have realistic sports games and wii u has mario sports games, other consoles have tekken and virtual fighter wii u has smash bros. I’m just saying nintendo really needs some real shit Ultrasyd That was part of the plan with 3rd party support. But now i think that you’d better love Mario if you wanna play your Wii U 😀 matthew garcia Lol yeah u have to love mario now in order to like wii u. If u don’t then Damn u won’t have to many games for the console jrob23 weak troll. matt Yeah ok mate wiiu has Tekken ps4 has not,wiiu has the best fifa easy,wiiu has a souped up Masseffect with faster gameplay better resolution/graphics,wiiu has the most mature games right now by far you idiot,oh heres a list check for yourself…. http://www.metacritic.com/browse/games/score/metascore/all/wii-u?sort=desc&view=condensed matthew garcia Ha lol this has to be David trail in disguise. That list looks like a bunch of cartoons and bad last gen ports cock smoker matt Real shit is flawless gameplay end of not what colours you use in your game ??? you must be 10years old,Nintendo’s art style is stylistic not cartooney……Oh and Mariokart8 with all its animation is using more polygons then most realistic racers…. matthew garcia Sorry but mario looks like a cartoon and they make wierd immature noises instead of talking. Also saving the princess story is very childish. You must be 5 years old lol ActivesiN I cant get into realistic racers, gets kinda boring to me would be pretty sweet if they had weapon modes matthew garcia When it comes to stuff like that I would rather play twisted metal ActivesiN twisted metal are so fun!, I wish they would make a new one or at least a HD remake matthew garcia Yeah man I use to play the shit out of twisted metal black on ps2. I’m sure ps4 will get one eventually Gilbert Nicks blur, split second, and full auto… sure i probably enjoyed others… but they are the few games that tried to flirt with a balance of mario kart and Forza Gilbert Nicks Star Wars Pod Racer…. just wish it had weapons lol… but that game wasnt realistic at all.. but you could custom ur pod out to what ever you wanted and really see a difference to a point u couldn’t even drive the damn thing (way too fast). matthew garcia If your talking about the one on n64 then yeah that game was badass Gilbert Nicks Dreamcast and n64 were the same but Dreamcast has cinematics for each track. I also enjoyed the ps2 version. Never played the arcade version. Commander Raichu i personally not really fond of racing sims but da gum do forza and need for speed are fun imo matthew garcia Yeah I understand man. I’m just kind of a gear head towards stuff like that Commander Raichu well whatever you enjoy is what matters(mario kart and need for speed are my favs :3) matthew garcia I enjoy mario kart alot also but mainly with my family which is great for us. But when I’m alone I play gran turismo Commander Raichu NICE! ActivesiN you are in the minority on that one, if they released it the same time as Mario Kart 8 then watchdogs would get crushed in sales matthew garcia I really don’t think mario kart 8 is gonna sale as good as previously. Wii u install base is small and wii u still isn’t selling good even with mario kart next month ActivesiN of course it wont sell as good as it did on the Wii, it sold 30+ million on the Wii, Wii U has an install base of 6 Million what im saying is if watchdogs came out the same day on the Wii u as MK8 then majority of Wii U users will purchase MK8 over watchdogs matthew garcia Yeah I agree matt Who fucking cares if u agree u Sony mug do1 to a Sony forum or something……haha matthew garcia Wow why do u keep stalking my comments. Sorry dude I’m not gay lol 00EpicGamer00 What’s your problem? Quicksilver88 I expect it do a few million even on the WiiU small base and I also expect them to be doing a bundle with it for xmas 2014. matthew garcia I agree with that. Won’t happen right away though it will take some time. Took mario3dworld a while just to hit 2 million Commander Raichu ehh not to sound like a fanboy but it launched on the same day as the ALMIGHTY XBOX ONE came out so it got overlooked most likely Commander Raichu actually it might because you see i follow the COMG thread on vgchartz(a big game store in japan that tracks its pre orders) and mario kart is in beast mode there already at number 4 with the 3 ahead of it releasing early may or late april pre orders for us for mario kart should be most likely around 150000 to 400000 fw(most likely 200000 but thats ok) Europe should have around 50000 to 100000 fw sales for it(most likely 60000) so im gonna think its going to do pretty decent now raising hardware sales i say 120000 to 160000(so around the xbox one titanfall boost levels) it will stay above 100000 for 2 or 3 weeks then go to 90000 for a month or so(my guess that is) now this possibly could or could not happen but i have hope it will it would be great for wii u and possibly let me have more people to face online(i love mk online so much) one last thing lftd sales will hopefully be 3 million to 10 million 4 million 2014, 3 million 2015,and 2 or 3 million in 2016(usually mario karts have long legs) (thank you for reading this boring comment) Commander Raichu and yeah its a it wont sell 30 million unless it gets really really really really really really really really really really really really really really…(continues 100 more times)… lucky Magnus Eriksson Not sure. There might be more people jumping on the Wii U wagon with two tempting games at once. Rygar I’m sorry 00EpicGamer00 I’m with you on that one. If Watch Dogs and Mario Kart 8 were to come out on the same day, I’d get Watch Dogs too. I can’t believe how many people are upset about that. matt Watchdogs is crap Online on Mariokart8 will own…. jrob23 I will not be buying this for any version. The premise doesn’t appeal to me. But it looks great and most likely is a great game for those who like this genre. Whether you wait for the Wii U version or not, Ubisoft seems to have put a lot of effort into making this another major franchise so it should do well..just not on Wii U due to its nature, and the delay Daniel Golightly It’ll do just fine on Wii U. The problem the Wii U is having in its “nature” is that the customers, more so than Nintendo, have forgotten that Nintendo has always been as much a part of the “hardcore” as any other company. jrob23 it’s a console geared towards families and young people. So a mature themed game is not in its nature or what its customers have been known to purchase in great quantities. greengecko007 And here we have someone who claims not to like a certain game, but doesn’t go out of their way to put it down unfairly, giving respect where it is due. A rarity indeed. LukeMM95 I’m looking forward to this. I just hope Ubisoft makes the most of the Wii U’s power. Gabe Hoffman Considering how this game comes out in like June or May for everywhere else. They had better take good advantage of the delay to polish up the Wii U version and they had better not gimp it either NintendoFan We should also get all the DLC included for free Wren Justin Umlauf This is my most anticipated game of the year. I was really disappointed to hear all the delays, but I know the Wii U will be the best version for me. So ill put out the wait and buy this day one. This is going to be a good year. Mario Kart, Q.U.B.E. A great E3, Watchdogs, Smash Bros. Might be getting Titanfall, Really excited for Nero. So many great things. And I still have a big backlog of games to play. Christian Schoff Yes, yes I will. ChariotMan7 To me it’s wroth the wait. I don’t mind. I bet by than. The Zelda Wii U hype will be going strong! Daniel Gonzalez That’s a shame. Getting it for PS4 anyways. TheRealTruthTeller pc plz jjbredesen Yeah PC will be the best version no question. Daniel Gonzalez I plan to get it on PC as well. I was never one to resist Steam sales. shadus Wii U or PC for me. It really depends on how quick it goes on sale on Steam. If its still full price when the Wii U releses I will probably use trade in to get it at game stop. ETeach Wii U for me, mostly because my PC just can’t handle this game. It can barely play LA Noire… jrob23 was there any doubt? you don’t even like Nintendo lol or own a Wii U. You are a notorious Sony troll. Why bother even announcing things like this? Too much!!! 00EpicGamer00 How is he a “Sony troll” for wanting it on the PS4? The PS4 version will be the best version of the consoles, and it’s not delayed for the PS4. The Wii U version will be inferior to the others (except PS3 and Xbox 360. But, really only by a small margin.) And, of course, the Wii U version is delayed. Why wait so many months to play a game you can play on another console on the day it comes out? I’m going to be getting this game on PS3, does that make me a Sony troll? Also, I don’t recall him EVER saying that he hates Nintendo. I recall him saying he does like Nintendo, just not as much as Sony, which I don’t see a problem with that. For an F.Y.I he has had a Wii U before. He may not have one now, but he has had one before. jrob23 don’t be an apologist. 95% of his opinions on Nintendo and their products is negative. You could go through his posts for confirmation but he changed his settings once I started trolling him in return for his idiocy. It’s the fact that he would go on a Wii U site…not own a Wii U..and announce to the world like a moron that he is getting it on the PS4. Duh!! Of course he is. You just don’t get it. He is only here to troll. But I guess you like that kind of contribution so more power to you 00EpicGamer00 Okay? What’s wrong with negative feedback? Especially if it’s true? Are you saying he should lie and pretend Nintendo’s just doing an awesome job with the Wii U? Well, news flash, Nintendo is doing a horrible job with the Wii U. At this point, I don’t think even Mario Kart can save it. Obviously Mario Kart will bring in some sales, but I don’t think anything mind blowing. I think the Wii U will be another GameCube. A great system, with some good games, but horrible sales. Again, he’s owned a Wii U before, so when he talks agout the Wii U, he knows what he’s talking about. I know there are times where he will say things that may not be true, but you shouldn’t let that bother you. If you let words from a stranger hurt your feelings, then you really shouldn’t be on the internet. And, even the times when he does “troll”, certain people on this site make that happen. People on here are so sensitive and protective over Nintendo, that it’s no wonder we have trolls here. Also, what’s wrong with announcing that he’s going to get it on the PS4? If you seriously get this much upset over someone getting a 3rd party game on a console that’s not Nintendo, then I think you need some help. Besides, how do you know, later on, he won’t get the game for Wii U too? He obviously can’t say that right now, but later on, maybe when he gets another one, he might buy it for Wii U too. jrob23 none of his feedback is true. Why is that hard to understand. The Wii U is a great piece of hardware. It has some great games. The name might suck, the pace of game releases might suck, the 3rd party support might suck and the marketing sucks. I doubt anyone will disagree with that. That isn’t his M.O. His M.O. is to trash every single piece of news that is positive. He has NOT owned a Wii U. Please!! I’ve been seeing his b.s. spewed on here for several months since the Wii U launch. He hasn’t owned it. He never will. Why do you think he does or did? Maybe because he wants you to think that so you will come to his defense and legitimize his presence here. I promise you he doesn’t own one. He won’t ever own one either. So spare me with that talk. The dude has been bad mouthing the Wii U from day one. Why do you think all of sudden he would get one and then sell it immediately? That makes zero sense. He is a PS360 faboy who gets his jollies off going on a Wii U website. Makes zero sense. Almost as much sense as you defending him 00EpicGamer00 How do you know he’s never had a Wii U? Do you live with him, or something? He’s stated here before that he bought a Wii U a while back, he then later sold it, not happy with it. Which, I completely understand. I’d sell my Wii U too if it didn’t have Smash Bros. or Zelda. You do realize Daniel isn’t the only person who’s done that. Someone on here bought a PS4 on launch day, sold it a couple days later. Oh, but I bet this doesn’t matter to you, because it’s Sony and not Nintendo. Why is it such a huge issue that I’m defending him? You blindly attacked him for no reason. All he did was state what console he was getting it for. Oh wait, I forgot that if you’re on this site, you have to pretend Wii U is the God of all gaming machines. Actually, getting the PS4 version is actually a better deal if you’re going to get the game on a console. The PS4 version will have the best graphics (I’m not trying to sound like a graphics whore. I’m just making a point). And, like the PS3 version, it will have an extra hour of gameplay. If all of them are going to be $60, it’d be the best decision, at least when it comes to getting your money’s worth, to get the PS4 version. jrob23 I bought a PS4 and sold it a week later. I own a PS3. So your comments are laughable. Nice try. I don’t blindly attack, who I assume is your boyfriend now. He has acted this way for months. Since I have been reading his crap for so long I know how he has felt about the Wii U all along. He has consistently bashed it and only pretended to own it. I feel bad for you for believing he did. Ask yourself….why would someone consistently troll Wii U daily and bash a console if he had one or was going to? And I am not saying you should get the Wii U version over the PS4. I am saying it isn’t a surprise that a person who never will own a Wii U and has bashed it from day one would choose to get it on the PS4. Like I said…duh!! As if we all don’t know he is a Sony fanboy on a Wii U site. It’s not necessary to pretend you are making some grand choice when there is no alternative because you hate the Wii U. Guy, I’m worried for you. You are either his bf or him in disguise. Let him fight his own battles. “Oh wait, I forgot that if you’re on this site, you have to pretend Wii U is the God of all gaming machines.” that’s the point. why come on here if you don’t like the Wii U at all? care to answer me that? If you like Nintendo but just not the Wii U then there are numerous other general Nintendo sites. And, if you don’t like Nintendo, then going on Nintendo sites to troll makes you an utter loser. Don’t defend that loser less you make it known you are one yourself. 00EpicGamer00 Wow, you have hit rock bottom in immaturity. First of all, just because you go on a Wii U centric site, that doesn’t mean you ALWAYS have to speak positively of said device. The Wii U is great and all, I don’t exactly hate it, I’m just frustrated with Nintendo’s decisions so far. Is it not okay to announce your frustrations with a non-living device? I think you, youself, is a bit to attached to a game console. Perhaps you should go outside. Get some fresh air? I bought a PS4 and sold it a week later. I own a PS3. So your comments are laughable.” Okay, just what was the purpose of announcing this? Do you really think I care what you did with what, and what you have? How did your statement make my comments laughable? I just, do not see the logical reasoning behind this. Why be worried about me? There’s no point in that. I’m defending him because, again, you attacked him out of nowhere. There was no reason to immaturly call him a “troll” (and loser, just now) for just announcing what console he was getting a game for. You seriously need to just calm down. God. And who cares if he’s “bashing a console?” If you don’t like what he says, just ignore and move on. If I see a post that I don’t particularly like, I do just that. In fact, you shouldn’t even care at all if anyone is “bashing” a console. You act as if a console is a living thing. What does it matter if someone is making fun of a machine? And just answer to answer your most immature statement in that post of your’s. No, he is not my “boyfriend.” I’m not looking for one right now, anyway. Besides, I think he’s already married anyway, or at least has a girl friend. Why would he want two? jrob23 “Oh, but I bet this doesn’t matter to you, because it’s Sony and not Nintendo.” you were implying I am some Nintendo fanboy when I love Sony too and own a PS3. “First of all, just because you go on a Wii U centric site, that doesn’t mean you ALWAYS have to speak positively of said device.” not asking for positive all the time. But ANY positive would be nice. 95% of his trolling is negative. You are on the wrong side of this argument here. “I’m defending him because, again, you attacked him out of nowhere” As I said, this has been going on for months. It hasn’t come out of nowhere. I’ll call him a loser and you a loser for defending him Again..you don’t know the history and obviously are confused as to whether he is a troll or not. Commenting about something in a vacuum as you are doing is kind of pointless because you don’t have the complete story. I could ignore him. But he is everywhere with his negativity. People like him need to be dealt with and called out. Else people like you don’t see his stupid ways and actually respond to his comments in earnest instead of ignoring him and treating him like the troll he is. Sorry, but if you are defending him or are blind to his trolling it probably means you are a troll yourself. More power to you. This is getting old so have at a response but it will go unnoticed. 00EpicGamer00 Again, if you don’t like a comment, just ignore it and move on. I thought you’re not suppose to respond to trolls? You’re not suppose to give them attention, right? Well it seems you’re breaking those rules. By responding to his comments, you’re making the situation worse. If he’s a troll (which, I see that he is now) you’re suppose to ignore them. Attention is what they want. The more attention they get, the more inclined they are to stay. It’s funny that you spent all this time explaining he’s a troll, when you don’t even know how to handle a troll. Awesome that this comment will go unnoticed. (I know it won’t though. I know you’ll at least look at it. You may not respond, but you will look.) jrob23 I apologize in advance for the length of this response. But I just had to prove he is a troll and never owned a Wii U. Here’s what I dug up: 11/13/14 “Simple. Because some of us are actual fans of Nintendo, but chose not to buy one for many reasons. Mine would be the lack of games that appeal to me. Just because some of us don’t own one, doesn’t mean we have no right to be here.” So we know he doesn’t own one then 1/30/14 In response to someone claiming Nintendo was being cheap with the Wii U “It shows in the Wii U’s specifications” Clearly he feels the Wii U is low class with less than ideal parts and performance. So I am assuming at this point he still has not purchased one because…why would you buy a product you feel is made cheaply? 2/11/14 Claims he purchased a Wii U “Unfortunately. Basically bought it so that I can bash it to my hearts content without the “you don’t own a Wii U and don’t know how great it is” routine on here.” My take. He wants people to THINK he bought one so they can’t use these sayings in response to his trolling 2/11/14 Admits he trolls “Not to worry. I’ll be bashing it no matter how good the games are. I’ve took an oath long ago to never let the evils of Nintendo influence my mind. Why did I buy a Wii U some may ask? To once and for all take down the big N and lure them into the third party realm. One day, Nintendo fans everywhere will thank me for waking them up from their horrid nightmares” 2/18/14 In response to someone saying that the Wii U is the king of platformers “That’s not saying a lot” Lol, a supposed Wii U owner bashing one of its strengths. When someone says hey we’ll take any positive news (this article was about Rayman Legends being the definitive version)…he responds “Yeah, it’s not worth reporting about. Not to me anyways” “I don’t see anything special about this news. PS4 and XB1 owners aren’t interested in these kind of games. Platformers sell better on Nintendo consoles. So it’s obvious that the Wii U will sell more copies. Lol” Really sounds like a proud Wii U owner huh? 2/27/14 “Very good graphics in the Smash Bros U. It caught up to PS3. Well done Nintendo” Going out of his way to be a douche and downplay how great Smash looks by comparing it last gen PS3. Still think he owns a Wii U at this point? 3/3/14 And the proof he is full of shit about owning a Wii U. Here’s a poster stating reasons to own a Wii U in 2014 “Wii U 2014: Smash Bros Bayonetta 2 Yarn Yoshi DK Freeze Monolith’s X Mario Kart 8 Hyrule Warriors 3rd party like Watch Dogs, Project Cars, etc. And titles that are unannounced at this time. Major Wii U titles already available: Pikmin 3 Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze Wonderful 101 Windwaker HD Super Mario 3D World Nintendo Land NSMBU + Luigi DLC Wii Fit U Lego City Ninja Gaiden Razor’s Edge Rayman Legends Monster Hunter Ultimate 3rd party like AC4, Batman Origins, COD, Need for Speed Most Wanted All of this is plenty enough of a reason to own a Wii U. “ Daniel…a supposed Wii U owner’s response… “Little third party. I’ll pass.” Another poster sees this and asks: “It’s already a given that the wii u is not a console to play major 3rd party games. What an ignorant response…All of the other exclusives for wii u, at only $299, make it a very good purchase” Daniel’s response. Mind you, he has claimed to be an owner “Too much Nintendo. I’ll pass” I thought it’d be fun to prove once and for all to at least one person that he is a Wii U bashing troll that never has owned it and never will. That he would lie and claim to be an owner, to go to such lengths to legitimize his reasons for being on a Wii U site. I am sorry you seem rather enthusiastic in his defense. Hopefully now you see the light and can hate him as much as the rest of us actual Nintendo fans. Believe me when tell you that he has thrown shade at the Wii U since its debut. He has taken every chance he can to spin negativity. He has never defended them that I can see. He goes out of his way to defend Sony anytime someone says anything close to negative. 00EpicGamer00 Lol, that was a really long post. But, I think I understand now. You see, some of those posts of his, I never saw, because I’m not exactly on here 24/7 (I have more important things to do than constantly be on a news site). I didn’t know he actually admitted that he is a troll. Umm. But, you’re right. I always thought whenever he said anything negative about it, he was speaking from experience……whoops. (You should of made this post at the beginning of this argument. As, I thought you were just making rediculous claims, before. If I don’t believe something, I need to be given proof. Not just a person telling me it’s true. So, good that you actually did give me proof). But, I still think you shouldn’t have been angry at him for just anouncing what console he was getting it for. That was the whole point of this argument in the first place. It wasn’t about what he did in the past, but what was happening now. I can see now that he is obviously a troll, but, again, announcing what console you’re getting a game on; is nothing to be upset about. If he said “I’m getting the PS4 version, because the Wii U one will suck tremendously” then yes, there’s to be angry. Just because he’s known to be a troll, that doesn’t mean every one of his posts should be hated. jrob23 yeah, you might be right. I think it’s because I know it’s his subtle way of trolling and you see it as an innocent statement lol. No worries 🙂 matthew garcia U should probably stop blaming Daniel for his opinions. U should blame this website. Seems like there are more negative news on wii u then positive. Most neutral gamers will respond with there honest opinions. U should blame nintendo for not doing enough to turn the negative news into positive news. It must be bad when even devoted websites to wii u have mostly bad news jrob23 I have no issue with differing opinions when offered in the correct forum or manner. For instance, if you are on IGN or Gamespot and there is a Nintendo article and you have some trolling to do..or even if you think you have some intelligent thoughts to add, ableit negative, then by all means have at it. But to go out of your way to frequent a site for a product you don’t own or ever will is beyond stupid. People like that need to get their head rammed through a wall. That is about as pointless an endeavor I can think of in the gaming world. You really have to be a special kind of loser to have enough time to go on this site when you don’t like the Wii U. While I don’t like how this and other Nintendo sites go out of their way to click bait with negative articles it still does not make sense how that has anything to do with loser trolls coming on here. This goes for Nintendo fanboys who go on a competitors forum and troll there too. I just beat Uncharted and am on Uncharted 2. I have Arkham City next and maybe The Last of Us after that. So I own a PS3 and can speak and offer my opinions backed by experience. I can do so in a thoughtful non trolling way and often do on several different sites. Both before and after getting a PS3. And I own a Wii and have owned a Wii U (also a 3ds) so I am equipped to come on here and contribute. If you don’t own a Wii U and never will get the f off the site is my point. If that applies to you then so be it. All these people do is rile others up, offer weak insults and put down products the majority of us here like and respect. So I feel very entitled to be pissed off and to want a troll to stfu and get out. Sorry that offends you but unless you are a troll (and you kinda are just not as bad) you shouldn’t chime in when people are upset with them matthew garcia I understand what your saying. Truth is this website feeds negative comments though. This website shows sales once a week. We all know the sales are gonna be bad. This site brings up delays and nothing but indie games. Just makes for argumentative conversation. Fanboys will come to nintendos aid and defend it while trolls will feed off the news and give the fanboy hell. Thing is there is truth to this bad news. I blame both trolls and fanboys. Trolls over do it and fanboy just won’t admit the truth sometimes jrob23 but I’d rather hear a fanboy on a Wii U centric site. Because..it’s supposed to be for fans. Also, there aren’t truth’s to be admitted. Their are opinions based on experience and backed with constructive conversations and then their are opinions based not on experience but on what will get the most ire. We need a little less fanboy and zero trolls. This site is late with news compared to MyNintendoNews which is usually first with news. But talk about negative. That sight is much worse with clickbait. Danielle would do well there, he’d fit right in. At least there are only a handful of trolls on here matthew garcia So in your opinion what kind of comment do u expect to hear when an article on wii u daily is game being developed for ps4 and xbox1 no wii u version mentioned. Or mario kart not until winter with no confirmed date. Then when the article is positive all it talks about is some indie game cuz of lack of anything coming out on wii u. It’s hard to write about anything positive when games are 3 or 4 months apart. People who are neutral gamers like I am will speak there honest opinions on these negative articles and come out sounding like trolls when there not. It’s all based off the negative article written which they are alot of those jrob23 “So in your opinion what kind of comment do u expect to hear when an article on wii u daily is game being developed for ps4 and xbox1 no wii u version mentioned?” what game is that? WatchDogs is coming out for the Wii U and it’s delayed and that sucks but my guess in order to do it justice Ubi probably needed the extra time to focus on its development after the others came out. I think the gamepad throws these devs for a loop. It wont’ sell well and I personally am not interested. What’s the point of piling on? Why troll the few fans of the game this site has? It’s Smash Brothers you are talking about not coming out till Winter. So? They obviously need more time to polish it. It is much bigger endeavor than the 3ds and it’s a flagship so they want to get it right. If you don’t own a Wii U and aren’t ever getting this game what’s the point of coming on here putting the Wii U down for not getting it till Winter? I don’t see Nintendo fans railing on the PS4 for Witcher 3 being delayed. Yet we have utter trash on here chiming in every perceived negative. The only way to be neutral is to own and play the different systems you are espousing. Another way is to give credit where it is due and not knock every single positive thing about the system of the website you are visiting. Do you own a Wii U? If not, are you planning on it someday? If not, you can give your opinion about it on a non Wii U centric site. Go to IGN, Destructoid, GoNintendo, etc. But this is a very specific site for the Wii U. I don’t get the disconnect. Ultrasyd Day one, if the reviews are good Edson Almaguer I would definitely buy it as soon is out for the wiiu, looks fun and it could be a good game to pass the time exploring its world. MerryBlind . I feel like this game is gonna be such a letdown. The concepts are very nice and original, but when it comes time to actually play it, I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s boring. ETeach Exactly my feelings. Even if it’s good, the year-long wait kinda sets expectations that much higher. Not to mention I have really bitter feelings already after the second delay for Wii U. MerryBlind . Mehh I don’t care about delays and how long games take to make anymore since I have a giant backlog of games on Steam and on Wii. Watch Dogs just doesn’t look all that fun to play, and the setting doesn’t appeal to me like AC games do. Also, I’ll buy it on PC anyway if I do end up buying it, unless the Wii U version has some very clever use of the GamePad. All I’m saying is “wait and see!”. ETeach Fair enough. I was pretty excited when it got announced. But it’s hard to keep that same excitement going an extra year, at least for me. I’d prefer developers not give release dates until they’re pretty much solidly cemented. There’s way too much pushing back on release dates these days. mark kaser It better be worth the wait. Skelterz coming fall 2014 Hop-scotch for wii u watch dogs was cancelled?! ETeach Yay… Eduardo I think it’s very unfair to fans who want to play the game on a nintendo, because if Rayman Legends which was previously exclusive to nintendo had to be postponed to be released with the other consoles. Why not postpone until the Wii U version is also ready? YogiGRB ↑↑ this Eduardo I expanded my HD so I could download this game on my Wii U and will have to wait longer than I anticipated. But the worst thing is not knowing what to expect but the other players, fans of Sony and microsoft, everything will already be in possession of the game, being able to do spoilers. Which prejudice with Nintendo fans? Daniel Gonzalez Because Nintendo doesn’t have a third party policy like Microsoft. Which is likely why Rayman Legends was postoned for all platforms including Wii U. Another important factor, is that it’s likely to sell better on those platforms(Watch Dogs) than the Wii U. Is it fair? I don’t feel that it is, and don’t blame people for being upset. Then again, when has life ever been fair? Just another way to look at it. Eduardo “Another important factor, is that it’s likely to sell better on those platforms(Watch Dogs) than the Wii U.” course not! The fans of the Wii U want both games like Super Mario Kart as tbm GTA style games, both fans of nintendo as the other consoles are eager for Watch Dogs Watch Dogs since its presentation at E3. Ubsoft causes the disappointment of the fans can make them disappointed with nintendo, and nintendo always does everything to the games become increasingly better. since when a new console generation need super graphics? this ended a while games made for the Nintendo Wii U are superior therefore shows the difference between consoles. clear that not all games were super innovative, but it is not for lack of Nintendo’s graphical capabilities, but because the producers do not are scrambling to take advantage of the gamepad. if all producers began to see the Wii U as something that is truly innovative and make an effort to promote this innovation together with nintendo, I betI bet that Sony and Microsoft would feel obliged to copying the Gamepad. steveb944 Already pre-ordered after we started hearing rumors that it was canceled I made sure to support it. I’ll just expect it at my doorstep when it comes out, no rush. Please understand Jeremy Baker I Will be picking it up day one for sure greengecko007 If Watchdogs released in the Fall of this year on the Wii U it would be perfect. It’s not close to Smash Bros. at all since that game is coming out Dec 21st at the absolute earliest according to Nintendo. Wii U owners need something between Mario Kart 8 and Super Smash Bros. Bayonetta 2 still looks likely for this year, but with Smash delayed to the last 11 days of the year, X is looking more and more like a 2015 title. Daniel Gonzalez “X is looking more and more like a 2015 title.” I believe so too. Vk- Hmmm, this is going to come 6 months after it multi-plataform launch and at the same time as a great wii U first party title. Talk about bad timing… Swampert Master Well Mario Kart does come out 3 days after the multi-platform release, a common rumor that Ubisoft purposely pushed the date back of Watch Dogs because of a famous first-party Nintendo franchise. Rygar No thanks. I’ll pass. Game looks amazingly boring. Child of Light on the other hand looks awesome. Kyle Berger I might get it just to support ubisoft. RyuNoHadouken no go for me readypembroke I actually posted this in a comments section on here like 2 weeks ago. Fuzzylittlebastard I’m still going to get it, no matter when it comes out! 😉 LordiMcKill I’m still picking this up despite the delay, at least now we have an almost certain release date upon us. Suraj Alexander Wii u is the only console I have so I have to get it on the Wii u but I expect Ubisoft to deliver it by June or I will be very angry. I am sorta happy it has been delay cuz my exams are starting on may 30 so no distractions. thedeciderU announcing/hyping games this far away from release date kills any excitement i have for them. ubisoft and many other companies, including nintendo, is guilty of this. it’s not that the games are bad, many of them are great. it just seems like there’s a disconnect between hyping (very early) and then release. leo Shit better no run 10 fps worse than the xbox 360 version because if it does then ubi can suck it. Quicksilver88 I think Ubi has come a long way on their porting to WiiU as Splinter Cell and AC4 both looked and performed better on WiiU then ps360 versions. Diana of Themyscira But not better than PS4 or Xbox, which is what matters more. Commander Raichu as long as its good then im fine with this i mean mario kart 8 will hold people(and me) over for a while then well most likely get hyrule warriers/bayonetta 2 and possibly x between followed by possibly zelda u(you can dream then this so ill be set 😀 Commander Raichu im so excited i get to stalk people.. in a cool way http://cdn2.dualshockers.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/11/Halo.jpg Rinslowe I for one, think that pic is greeaat. Commander Raichu master chief at his finest 😀 Rinslowe That is truly compelling visual representation… Gamerrr72 The release date comes in between MK8 and SSB, good marketing. Hope this turns out to be great, I’m really excited to get this. Aaron Michael Castle Although the wait is discouraging. . It will be worth the wait I’m sure. . And with it being holiday season I’m sure sales will be descent Rinslowe Fine by me. PC first it is… Suraj Alexander ur lucky enough to know people who has wii u. no one i know has a wii u. in fact they always make fun of the wii u, all of them stupid playstation fanboys but they are friends so im gonna try and get a ps4 as well. Rinslowe PS4 is a worthy purchase… The thing that truly astounds me in all honesty is in how there’s a platform for everyone, in some way. Thank goodness to competition. I prefer to invest in all platforms at the right time, according to the title… Suraj Alexander well, i sorta disagree as the amount of stuff available for my little brother is very little on ps4 compared to the wii u. the wii u seems to cater to a wider range of audiences but it is just spread too thin. Rinslowe I’m not making any comparisons…. From a content perspective, sure it’s reasonable to say Wii U is the better option for the amount of titles currently available. But that wasn’t my point. PS4 is a worthy purchase just for Shadowfall and Infamous. But that’s just my opinion. I don’t worry about which console people think are better. I find both to be useful platforms for exclusive content. PS4 just more-so in what we can expect to come, next 24 months or so than what is available now. Wii U, with exclusive games like Zombie U, W101, Pikmin 3, WWHD, SM3DW, DKC TF and then great ports like NFSMW U, Deus EX DC, AC4 etc… Makes the platform a compelling purchase in my thinking… Suraj Alexander i totally agree.i just wish there was some way of me having all three systems each for their own unique stuff. i just wish these three brand just joined as one and have all the features included to make the choice easier, but that is just wishful thinking. Rinslowe Actually, truth be told I like to have all the main consoles sitting next to each other… Like a collection of great gaming possibilities, lol. And PC to rule them all… 😛 jrob23 to most people it’d be tough to scrape up the cash for all three or even two. Since the PS4 and Xbone get pretty much all the same multi plats but look better on PS4 and it’s cheaper, I don’t really see a reason to get an Xbone. Just not enough exclusives. Honestly PC and Wii U seems like the sweet spot but I don’t game on PC so I was hoping Wii U had some more of the multi plats covered but they aren’t. So most likely it’ll have to be Wii U/PS4 for me. Ort Yea, I’ll just put my WiiU in a box untill then. LEGO city, Darksiders II, Mario 3D world, tLoZ WW HD. >insert undefined long period of time< New zelda, Mario kart, Watchdogs (all without release date) Fierce-Deity Link mario kart is being released in may 0.0 classicgamer20 Mario kart is coming out may 30 darkcreap I will buy this game, sure. I think it could be a great thing. ZeldaFanzzzz Screw it I’m not gonna wait that long, might as well buy it for pc. Carlos Webster Well, at least this makes it so that LEGO:the hobbit isn’t the only major 3rd party 2014 Wii U release. theexxs you’re forgetting about Sonic Boom. Carlos Webster But we don’t know when Sonic Boom will be released. MortyF1 Sega said 2014 Carlos Webster we don’t know what month, so it might be in a month where there’s another major Wii U release. That’s not the case with Watch Dogs and Lego the Hobbit, because there are no other major releases for, respectively, April or Autumn. 00EpicGamer00 We all know what’s going to happen. The Wii U version will, as usual, sell way less than the other versions. Thus, most likely causing Ubisoft to not develop anymore games for Wii U. I have a very high feeling that Watch Dogs will be the last game Ubisoft will make for the Wii U. If Ubisoft still makes games for Wii U, it will probably be small budget kind of games, Like Rayman, for example. Kind of like what most of the 3rd party companies are doing. Releasing smaller budget games, so there’s not to much of a loss. Unless Nintendo can quickly change the Wii U’s situation around, we won’t be seeing many 3rd party games…again. In this situation, it’s good to have more than one console, just saying. Ferd726 There’s no point release this version we are know most of the people will chose the ps3/ps4 version because of the free 1 hour DLC. Even they delayed because of mario kart 8 or they going to add more counted like free DLC because if they going to release this autumn the game shoul cost $60 we free DLC because when this version comes. Watch dogs for all platforms except this recent wii u it will cost like 20 to 40 this game nexxus6 Day 1 purchase on the WiiU. anthony optimo Can’t say I’m all that excited for this game, when I first heard about it was when GTA 5 was out and I saw this as a GTA 5 clone, but with a nerd main character… Petri Good luck with that. But if there is a sale for PC, that will be one less copy for Wii U. By that time they usually have -33% or -50% sale. Petri And about 99% of Wii U gamers have a second platform to play it. Only handful will wait for the Wii U version. My guess, worst selling Ubisoft Wii U title on the history of the console. Which will translate to Ubisoft fat cats as “Wii U gamers do not want these games”. Adecentboy777 HEHE! I knew that! No surprise to me! 🙂 THANK YOU SONY, at least you did everything right with PS4! 🙂 great deku tree hmmm not sure if the wii u version of watch dogs will sell that great. on the one hand it’s being delayed, so many people will probably get the other versions. on the other hand wii u hardware sales will probably increase by quite a bit what with MK8 coming in May 30th and the fact that there’ll probably be some good gamepad integrations. personally I’ll be picking this game up for the wii u (unless I’m told it’s just terrible). I can wait that long, whether it’s fall 2014 or early 2015. I’ve come to really like the advantages that the gamepad offers when playing games. FutureFox Wii U is everything the Ouya aspired to become…a haven for nothing but indie titles and exclusives. What bothers me is being put to the test to either wait until all versions of a game are available to make a comparative decision, or just go for the low hanging fruit. WD and Smash comes out earlier than the Wii U versions. That’s two big name games people have to wait for if they even want to compare other platform versions. By then as others have stated WD will likely have a Steam sale, and possibly Sony and Microsoft will have sales just to stamp out the Wii U version when its finally available. Its Rayman Legends and Mass Effect 3…all…over…again. Its cornered no matter how you look it. Suraj Alexander the uk website is showing 27th of may, I just checked. tom Its will sell 60 k lifetime tops. james I was considering getting the Wii U version for the gamepad features, but due to the delay, I think I’m gonna get the Xbox ONE version and enjoy the nicer graphics. verymetal I don’t understand all the hype surrounding this game. There are already action figures out for it, and the game is not even released. I bet it gets a 7 out of 10 at the most. It seems everyone knows for a fact this game is going to be great. Oh really? Ubisoft is famous for dragging out the story by including side missions that are all the same and very repetitive that they have no meaning whatsoever. After doing the same thing over and over, it gets very boring when you look at it (Yes, this means you Assassins Creed). To each his own, but I will wait for the reviews and not the jump the hype train that is sure to turn into a train wreck. companyoflosers its possible that if the wii u version of watch dogs doesnt do well, that ubisoft COULD pull back their support from wii u. this is of course assuming the ps4 and xb1 both pick up significantly in sales and gain larger user bases. i think ubisoft recognizes that all console based platforms are having it rough right now. im actually a bit surprised and at the same time delighted at how the wii u has been keeping up so far when it could have done alot worse. i DO wish that devs and publishers would recognize this and start putting some faith in the wii u seeing how its not just a sinking ship like so many people thought it would be. it does seem like ubi is putting a large amount of effort into ensuring the wii u version of the game is unique and works well with the gamepad. i kinda wish nintendo had sent a small dev team who was familiar with the wii u’s workings to assist, that could have sped up production quite a bit and would have been a good move to help improve relations. i suppose i may be buying multiple versions of watch dogs. i do not plan on waiting to play the game till the wii u version comes out but at the same time, i think the wii u will have a better gameplay experience than the others so i will get it as well just because the difference in gamplay adds some replayability to the mix. jrob23 I think they will stop supporting it with games that don’t sell well. The Wii U will probably still get Just Dance and Rayman and maybe some indies. But after Watchdogs does poorly I don’t see why they’d still make ‘hardcore’ games for the system. companyoflosers well if they are putting as much effort into watch dogs as they seems to be, i see no reason why it should fail. only if they half-ass the version and dissapoint people will they stop making games like watchdogs. they will do what EA did and blame the wii u’s userbase instead of their own laziness… but that is of course if they DO half-ass it. im surprised at how negative people have been, even nintendo fans about ubisoft’s allegience to supporting nintendo. they have certainly hung in there for a long time despite the slow sales. if anything id say that proves ubisoft’s sincerity in supporting the platform. i dont think its fair to assume that the game will fail. the wii u has hung in there surprisingly well considering how much less powerful and supported it has been. its the reigning console in japan right now over the ps4. all new consoles are in a rough spot right now. the first company to release their console would have inevitably had alot of flak and it just happened to be nintendo. if ps4 had been out first, it would have been said to be doing terribly and the same goes for xb1. people just dont seem to be realizing just how well the wii u has done relatively. its barely had any support from third parties, its been having massive game droughts in between title releases and nintendo refuses to do anything differently to catch up with the times. all this and yet the wii u is staying competitive against two rivals who have everything nintendo doesnt. i think its safe to assume that IF nintendo had those thing i mentioned, they would be ahead by a significant margin right now ever WITH the hardware disadvantage. jrob23 I think many people like me feel betrayed by their decision to take away Rayman Legends exclusivity and delay it. To me, besides Nintendo’s actions, that hurt the Wii U the most. Having such a quality game come out as an exclusive during that dead period for the industry (Feb I believe) would have brought much needed attention to the Wii U. It had a decent launch and if Rayman Legends had come out the articles about the Wii U’s lack of games would certainly have been reduced. It wouldn’t have fixed all their problems but it would have been something. 2013 was a pretty awful year for the Wii U until the fall. Maybe other 3rd parties would have been more supportive if Ubi led the way. Instead, Ubi’s decision did the exact opposite. It furthered the argument that the Wii u wasn’t being supported and fed into perpetual vicious cycle that is no 3rd party until bigger base, no bigger base unless more 3rd party support. Personally, I supported them by buying the Zombi U bundle. I would have purchased Rayman but they let me down. I am considering getting AC4 for the PS3 since I don’t own a Wii u any longer. I haven’t been too keen on the series my brief attempts at playing but I hear it’s the best version so I might do it. It’s on sale for $19.99 on Wii U and the PS360 at BB. Maybe I should wait to play it on PS4 or Wii U when I get them later this year. Dunno. Anyway, there is NO hardware disadvantage. It’s quite capable and has already proven that. Lack of 3rd party is about control, and money, nothing else. The Wii U would not have gotten AC4 and getting Watchdogs, Bayo 2 and Project Cars if the hardware was lacking. Don’t believe the trolls THEMIGHTYDOOVDE Great! That means I’ll have to wait for the Wii U release before I decide which console to get it for! Nintendoom! Great… just another reason to let my Wii U collect dust… Rodger_Ramjet Definately picking up watch_dogs WiiU! If the gamepad is used like zombie u, black list, most wanted etc … It will be THE version to have Magnus Eriksson Ill pick it up definitly. But Im thinking about the PS3 version. Rinslowe Why PS3. Surely PC no? AlienFanatic I am willing to predict that this game will never, ever see the light of day. I have my doubts that the game will live up to the initial hype, anyway, and if so it will motivate Ubisoft to cut their losses and stop production. There simply isn’t enough of an install-base of the Wii-U, nor do I think there’s enough strong interest among those that own it, to justify the cost to Ubi. I’m not afraid of being wrong, but I think I’ll be proven correct. I feel terrible for the Wii-U, but the rate of new releases is abysmal. Even Nintendo can’t possibly produce enough A-level software to make the system competitive. The only A-level game that is 100% certain to arrive this year is Mario Kart 8. Even Super Smash Bros. has a “Winter” date which nearly always means that a game won’t be released until Feb/March of the following year. Look at IGN’s list of upcoming games for 2014 http://www.ign.com/games/upcoming/wii-u 90% of it is shovelware. It’s going to be two years in a row of very few titles. The only thing propping the system up is the hope of new games as well as a fairly vibrant independent community. Who knows what will be shown at E3? Maybe that’ll be the big savior for Nintendo, but I strongly believe that the same pattern Nintendo has displayed for the past ten years–announce and then delay–will continue this Fall. I’m angry because I LOVE Nintendo as a company but they are flailing around without direction. I dearly hope that the rumors about Iwata being sacked in June if things don’t improve are true. Iwata got lucky with the Wii, but he has overseen the biggest decline in 3rd party support in the history of the company. Mwgly In the end, they just didnt want to release it in the same time mk8 comes out. i think, giving it some extra polish just came on second thought for the delay they would have given the wiiu version anyway. InterTreble And there are still people believing Wii U won’t receive Watch_Dogs, just beacuse “they’ve read it”… Yes, haters and trolls talk no sense about Wii U all days. Who cares if Ubisoft itself said they are only stupid people telling stupid stories… Nope.avi Rename it Watch_Doge and watch the money roll in……….. kensredemption If Ubisoft announces that they’ll make Watch Dogs, Assassin’s Creed Unity and Assassin’s Creed Comet available for the Wii U I will love them FOREVER.
