According to recent reports, Nintendo is so focused on getting third party developers on board the Wii U train that they are giving away free development kits, software and tools. We’re unsure how much a Wii U development kit costs, it’s rumored to be in the $5,000 range. Now it appears that Nintendo is reaching out to select developers with free dev kits in order to woo them over to make Wii U games. In order to make games for a console, developers have to obtain (read: purchase) a development kit. These “kits” include a development console to test code and games, and a set of APIs and tools for developers to use as well. Development kits rarely include more complex tools such as game engines etc. Check out below how an early version of the Wii U dev kit looked like. Nintendo shipped the final version of the Wii U dev kits to developers in May 2012.

John Be careful boy, the trolls are here. Barney Stinson The key to love,is apples. dylanbob121 barneys words of wisdom. Dominic Coradazzi Smarts… why didn’t Nintendo do this before? HardToTheCore93 Because they are rumored to cost $5,000! Nintedward Nintendo can afford to give away 100+ dev kits . 1 small game release will cancel out the loss. Like the next Wiiu virtual console trial release would do it. sithWiiU Yeah, keep thinking that. Every Wii U is sold at a loss, and Nintendo is so desperate because no one is buying Wii U, that they are giving out 5000d dollar gifts to try and sway 3rd parties to like them….pretty sad. Th3PANO lol sony did the exact same thing with the vita so pls stfu Jeremy Thompson Their selling at a loss what they consider a loss at least is just not gaining so much profit even though its not loseing money or even if it breaks even for production cost Silent you own a wii U so why are you talking? kean Every console is sold at a loss genius, its the liscensing, and games that make the money Superstick98 For the love of god. Do we really to go over this again? -_- The Wii U launched FIVE MONTHS AGO. It’s not like It’s gonna sell freakin trillions of units in that amount of time! There are SEVERAL reasons to name why too. Either A: There aren’t enough Wii U commercials on TV. B: People are waiting for the BIG games to come out. Super smash bros, zelda, etc. C:People don’t have 250$+ to just go out and BLOW money away on video games. And how’s PS4 or 720 gonna be better? Those are probably gonna cost three TIMES as much as Wii U!! And If retarted fanboys can’t afford even a good working PC thenhow in the HELL are they gonna afford a PS4 or 720? kean Not to mention derango’s gonna be an always online console. So you can’t even play it without being connected to the internet Zorbo85 Coz NINTENDO are a joke and are losing the plot that is why!!!350 bucks for the wii u?what a rip off!! Dominic Coradazzi Damn, how old are you? 12? Daniel Golightly guy just hasn’t used one and forgets how much the PS3 and Xbox cost @release Jeffery02 Wow! Hopefully this means more games from more developers later. Hopefully this is Nintendo being generous though and not desperate. I love how the prototype dev kit is just a black box though. XD Simple is not always bad. Mason742 They are all boxes lol have you ever seen the gamecube, wii, and n64 dev kit boxes? They all look like the above picture, only those other ones have ports for the proprietary controllers plug ins. Instead now they are all wireless controllers. Jeffery02 I know. I’m not surprised. I just found some amusement in a small fact. Just call me easily amused. 😛 sithWiiU It’s them being desperate. SoulSilverZero http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=McAeQiLmEYU NkoSekirei we all know ur desperate on getting high on magic mushrooms u douche Enigma Oh they are definitely getting desperate. Jon Turner Generous, desperate, it doesn’t matter. Either way this is a GREAT move. nonbeliever323 If they were definitely desperate then they will give every developer a dev kit. Jeffery02 Very good point. Also if these dev kits are only $5000, then this should be no problem for large companies. This makes me think that this may be for some indie companies. Maybe there’s some work out there that Nintendo has their eyes on and this is their way of giving them (whomever they are) a chance. Again though, this is pure speculation and I have no factual source aside from this article. Dan Jacobson they are not giving everyone a dev kit, they are giving a ‘select few’ developers a dev kit. Andrew Baines that’s right the ones that wii work hard to make good looking and playful games Jeffery02 That’s his point. He is saying that if Nintendo was so desperate, then they would give everyone a free dev kit. Since they are not, then that must mean that they are not desperate. Jeffery02 Is that opinion or fact? Source please. Silent Dont pay attention to all the hate that is coming. They just like the Wii U and are jealous of Nintendo. You should read my comment below. Jeffery02 I can’t find your comment below. Lol! Way too many comments all of a sudden. And if I cared about the hate, I wouldn’t be a Nintendo fan. Haters are everywhere. I know Nintendo has not made the best decisions every time, but they at least try. Nintendo always takes the concept of “just make a more powerful console next time” and then says that that’s not good enough. Nintendo gambles on innovation rather than just defaulting to more power. That is why I will always be behind Nintendo until either they die or I do. They will always give me something new, even if it’s not better than the last thing they did. You can’t outdo yourself every time after all. Daniel Golightly lol. What’s Ironic is I can believe they are jealous of Nintendo since Sony only exists because Nintendo didn’t want to use discs on the N64 and Nintendo has always outsold Microsoft’s Xbox. Also because both others build computers that only do half of what a computer does (even the new PS4 that claims bleeding edge chips and cards……. not so fast, no they aren’t and while they may be better than they average computer… it should be noted that most of the computers out there are still xp computers barely supporting the Windows 7 they have now adopted….. old tech). I should edit this to clarify “Sony only exists AS A GAME COMPANY because Nintendo didn’t want to use discs on the N64….” Jeffery02 Actually it goes farther back. The playstation was originally a SNES add-on that Sony backed out of because they felt that Nintendo was asking for too many of the rights so they separated from them and decided to take the add-on and make it into a full console. Sony existed as a gaming company because Sony had too much pride to partner with Nintendo for the SNES. The playstation was a success because the N64 didn’t utilize discs. Sony really lucked out back then. briwas101 How did they “luck out”? Sony knew that discs were a better medium than cartridges, and Nintendo was stuck in the past. Sony knew they were right, and they went out and proved it. Sony was forward-thinking while nintendo was not. So how is that luck? Being smarter than your competitors is not luck. Jeffery02 You’re right. Sony did know that discs were the future. You’re also wrong though in saying that discs are the “better” medium. They are cheaper, that’s IT. They are slower, hold less information, and are more easily damaged. So for a company, sure discs are better, but for a gamer, no they are not. The reason why they “lucked out” though is because Nintendo got them into the gaming industry and Nintendo failed at the chance to crush the PSOne by going away from discs. If the N64 was a disc based system from the get-go, then I really doubt that the PSOne would have done nearly as well especially when you take into consideration that the N64 had more powerful hardware. kean There’s not a single N64 game I can think of that Broke when dropped and even Had loading times. And discs aren’t always “cutting edge” cause the PS Vita is eating ass compared to the 3 ds briwas101 Wow, you nintenboys sure do have to dig deep in your imagination to come with ways to defend yourself. ZERO sony fans spend even a second thinking about the failed nintendo collaboration. How exactly would ANY of that lead to jealousy??????? If anything it would be Nintendo fans jealous of Sony fans because the Nintendo fans couldve had everything that us Sony fans have been enjoying, but instead they have to settle for the crap that Nintendo pumps out of their septic tank. Nintendo wouldve held sony back by insisting that EVERYTHING be 10 years behind their competitors. Sony realized very quickly that they could surpass Nintendo and never look back. Mission accomplished kean Actually, if you weren’t so fucking picky, there’s a console JUST LIKE PS3, ITS CALLED XBOX 360. Sony isn’t unique, wii is the only console out there and is fun as hell. What’s PS3 got? Oh 70 rehashed COD’s, Uncharted, LBP, God of war.. they’re awesome games, but Nintendo had games out BEFORE those thatre just like them. So yeah, if you want to say nintendo could’ve been just another big 3 console doing the same exact thing as the other 2.. it’d be pretty damn boring, cause I think I enjoy wii sports a lot more than MLB the Show on a tiny ass controller. briwas101 LOL 0% of “haters” like the wii u. I grew up on Nintendo and now i cant help but laugh at how much of a joke they have become. There are ZERO games for the wii u that look better than ps3 games from the last 2-3 years. There is no use for the gamepad to most gamers. Taking my eyes off of my 55 inch high def 3d plasma TV to look down at the gamepad’s screen is WORSE than quickly hitting select or start button. Most gamers DO NOT want to be looking from one screen to another, especially when our TV is already way better than anything nintendo could ever dream of producing. I will buy a wii u for the new zelda game once the wii u drops to $100 and then i will give it to my nephew who still wets the bed Silent Typical of an ape. Meanwhile the 3ds has two screens and people dont care because…. Veries Seals I like the sound of that… Your right, you will buy a Wii U and we know that because you are here checking out Wii U info. Even though we know why you are here, the sad part about it is you don’t understand why your here. Now lets be honest. I have a PS3 and an X-Box 360 and neither are as advanced as the Wii U. But if you’d like to keep taking the wrong pill and keep living in the Matrix that is fine. If you don’t enjoy people who like Nintendo gear why come here? Oh and by the way, I am not young, nor am I a baby. I have kids that are gamers and I have play with them and have been a gamer for over 25 years, this year makes 26. You should try not to speak for everyone. Zizu Barola And hopefully more developer’s respect us and Nintendo briwas101 Good luck with that. Real gamers know that nintendo fans are little kids who still believe in Santa and wet the bed. Would you respect a 15 year old that rides a bike with training wheels??? So why would we (or developers) respect kids who are fascinated by game machines that are 7 years behind their competitors??? kean I don’t know, why do 7 year olds have to get on their daddys computer and bag on a group of people who just want to play some of the most popular franchises in gaming history? Ben Kapferer I hope people aren’t taking this post seriously. William Cole Why did the Game Boy whip the Game Gear and Atari Handy’s ass? The games not the technology. The Game Boy Color was released in 1998 I believe and it was just as powerful as the Game Gear then. Games sell hardware. It’s hard to sell superpowerful hardware without super great software. briwas101 “Hopefully this is Nintendo being generous though and not desperate”. Did nintendo give out free kits when things were going well? No. Is nintendo giving out free kits now that things are going very very poorly? Yes. So with these two pieces of information you somehow were unable to connect the dots???? OF COURSE THIS IS BEING DONE OUT OF DESPERATION. Jeffery02 Did you notice the “hope” part? I know that the Wii U is doing worse than Nintendo had hoped, but Nintendo also isn’t dependent on the Wii U succeeding. Nintendo could very easily give up on the Wii U all together and they would still be able to squeeze out another console down the line (not probable and it would be a huge blow to Nintendo, but my only point is that they could do it and survive). So are they being generous or are they trying desperately to save the Wii U? Nintendo can survive a big loss, so it’s mostly for the system, not the company even though the Wii U’s success would be the company’s success as well. They REALLY want the Wii U to do well, but they don’t need it to. Also, who got these free kits? Most likely small developers that couldn’t afford a $5000 gamble. It’s not like Nintendo makes much from these $5000 dev kits anyway. The high price is mostly to ensure that whoever buys them are serious about trying to make a decent game for the system. Most of the money made from these dev kits are in fact from the games that these studios produce, so if they can give the right people a free one, it could launch the Wii U’s possible success. Btw, if you’ve ever taken math in high school, then you’d know that 2 points a pattern does not make. So if you want to convince me, you’d have to give more (much more) than this. I am not saying that there isn’t more, I’m just saying that your argument lacks any real substance for me to even consider the possibility that you could be correct. zerooooo This is a good idea but unless the games that are made sell well they lose money. Hopefully it goes well Edmonde Mccrea That a good start, but I think nintendo is gonna have to to more publishing for third party games to get them to the WiiU. Joseph Parsons Nintendo you fucking rock love you guys ther going to make the wii u a big hit Justin Rashad Thomas If I was a developer all they would have to send me is free pie ! Joseph Parsons some times you have to go big or go home and looks like Nintendogoing big puting out all ther guns look out ps4 and shit box Captain~Raid Now all we have to do is wait and see if we can finally get the descent games that everybody wants! even if it’s for hardcore gamers, solo gamers, fearless gamers etc. 😀 Side-note~ The trolls will be showing up soon, so be on the look out. John I can already imagine Zorbo coming on here being like “LMFAO!!!11! DIS GAEM SI SOOO PATHETCI THAT IT NEDES OTHER UNPROFESSIOANAL PEOPLE TO GAEMS FOR IT! FAILS!” :p dylanbob121 and that…guy…I have nothing….LMAO!!!!LOK!!!11NINTEDO IS SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO)))OOOOO DESPIRTAE.BYE PS444444444## TI WIL TE AWISom! SeroReviews “UNPROFESSIO ANAL”, LOLOL Only a few are true gamers Awesome and screw the haters …They continue to cry and complain like babies. But in the end Wii u will become the best yet and so what if it has been slow..Better slow and get get games right than speed them up and produce crap (like one no name company that always seems to copy the others) fireheartis1 LOL so true man I’m getting sick of all the Nintendo hate. I for one think each company has their own advantages and disadvantages. Nintendo can appeal to families, Sony consoles appeal to Teenagers and adults who like games like God of War, and Microsoft consoles appeal to people who lover their first person shooters. It’s just sad how they all hate on Nintendo fans, and then go around claiming it’s Nintendo’s fans who are doing the hating. Screw that noise man it’s the PlayStation and Xbox fanboys who hate on us, and I for one am getting sick and tired of hearing the crap from each and everyone of them. Only a few are true gamers Most haters are the ones who are afraid of change and now it’s scares them again briwas101 “Afraid of change” said the fan of the game company that was too stubborn and primitive to move past cartidges until the damage was already done? Nintendo was afraid to enter the world of High Def until Sony and MS were close to releasing their SECOND High Def system. Nintendo is afraid of change, which is why it STILL makes mario sidescrollers when people are asking for 3d mario. Please, if you want to look at people afraid to change, look at Nintendo. Sony and MS fans generally embrace change and that is why we have gotten much better games and experiences than Nintendo fans. Only a few are true gamers If they were afraid than why did the wii sell 100 million units..They just took a different path and so there is no fear from them but im a type of person to buy most of the consoles and just get get what games i want but sony is the other 2 need to worry because right now gaming in a whole is not doing so great kean Change, nintendo stubborn? HAVE YOU EVEN SEEN THE WII? WERE YOU ASLEEP FOR 7 YEARS!? its innovation at the definition, sure it left out some key components, but nintendo is the last company on earth afraid of change. PS and Xbox stuck to conventional gaming, conventional controllers, and really played it conservative until they seen how massively popular the motion gaming was so the both copied nintendo and made kinect and move. Super smash bros, first game of its kind, PLAYSTATION COPIED, handheld gaming PLAYSTATION MADE PSP only AFTER nintendo made DS. Still nintendo dominates all 3 of those fields. I’m pretty sure your point is invalid as shit on a sidewalk now Nate Davies Sony: import rpgs starring loli anime girls. (hentai has been around for 30+ years, thanks) Make your own Mario Big Planet. Tomb Raider rip-off with a better storyline. Mario Kart rip-off. Smash Bros. rip-off. Wii mote rip-off. Wasting millions on 3D game integration. Wasting millions on digital storybook. Rehashing and remaking GOW (even going so far releasing 3 collections, 2 of which are HD remakes). Naughty Dog has bailed Sony out so many times since Sony purchased their exclusivity (they used to make games for MS and Nintendo). Sony’s indie successes are wonderful (Journey, for one) but I’d be surprised if Quantic Dream doesn’t just make their next game one big QTE. Heavy Rain was ridiculously overhyped. Microsoft: a one track FPS that can not move past the obligatory macho hero. Bro shooters, online dependancy, over-reliance on PC connectivity and Windows integration to move forward. Kinect was a subpar idea best marketed towards professionals for non-specific tasks and uncoordinated toddlers. Nintendo: only company in history to successfully develop and sell motion controls. Longest lasting video game company. Most successful video game company. Enduring franchises with timeless and diverse character line-up. Created and perfected countless genres. Seamlessly integrated a second, optionally integrated second screen (it is as intrusive or unassuming as developers want it to be). Redifined 2D gaming, reinvented and perfected 3D gaming, reinvented platform gaming numerous times. Dominant source of local multiplayer gaming. Truly social gaming universe in Miiverse. Use their resources smartly, not just throwing cash at numbers and run test performance. Cost, energy and future concious. Considerate of all current platforms (Pandora’s Tower is coming out later this month as a Wii exclusive in North America). Mindful of nostalgia though constantly progressing (best platformer in New Super Mario Bros Wii U, pushing new 3D experiences in Zelda and Mario, creating new IP like Animal Crossing, Luigi’s Mansion, Fantasy Life, Golden Sun, Pikmin over the last 15 years, in addition to the previously mentioned classics). You say people want 3D Mario, but Galaxy didn’t sell. 2D sold a boatload, even the newest on Wii U. You say that Wii U versions are the worst and worst selling. By Wii U owners and the amount of games sold, the numbers are usually better. 1 out of 12 versus 1 out of 27 seems like a no brainer. I’m 29 tomorrow. I’ve dealt with the empty handed, overdone, fun sapping horse shit that PS3 and 360 produced. Of the 23 consoles / handhelds I’ve owned and enjoyed, Wii U is at the top, by a massive margin. Nintendo gives their fans stuff for buying their games. It isn’t much, but it is something. Without all the bells and whistles, I’d still take Wii U over the alternative. It gives me something I haven’t truly felt in gaming in almost 20 years: fun. Pure, unadulterated fun. kean They won’t be laughing when wiiu wins the next gen with their amazing 1st parties Jeremy Thompson would be cool but I doubt they will but possible if nintendo keeps pulling stuff out of its hat and the others screw up then lets hope for that 🙂 Dan Jacobson i reckon wiiu does have a chance at winning the generation. Nintendo has many brilliaint games for it on the horizon, and we still haven’t seen what’s coming at e3 yet. meanwhile, ps4 is looking a good option but only for those who have vast amounts of cash and it will be lacking exclusives as good as the wiiu’s, and the wiiu, whilst being less powerful, will be able to run most multiplatform games nearly as well as ps4. meanwhile, durango will most likely focus on media and kinect, and therefore completely fail. wiiu has a high chance of winning! John Pope Keep smoking crack and thinking that the wii u is dead and thats a fact david jarman …And you keeping smoking poles NkoSekirei go back to ur bridge troll u maggot Chiwawa or den. trolls live in caves, under bridges, and dens. and anything else you could imagine a troll livivg in. kean A console dead in the first year of release? Huh, where have I heard that before, oh yeah! 2006 when microsoft was giving out bum Xbox360’s! Look where that went? Any one older than 10 years old would remember that. Maybe your just too young to be on the internet buddy briwas101 HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA Nintendo has already cemented itself in 3rd place for the coming gen. In worldwide sales it will be: 1. ps4 2. nextbox 3. Wii u with nintendo being a distant 3rd (kind of like libertarians but not cool) Only a few are true gamers I see something different 1.Wii U best deal 2. ps4…Diablo 3 3 xbox720.dead last xbox last because of having to be online all the time(like taking a shit and not having toilet paper) Jeremy Thompson gave you a thumbs up but theres people who complain and talk that ish from every fan group but since i been mainly on this one I can mainly see nintendo fans attacking any opinion against nintendo even positive criticism that I did david jarman There is fine line between opinions and trolling. Coming onto a fan site telling people their console sucks just to get a rise is uncalled for. Not saying you did, but most people that have been negative did it out of lack of respect and most are just bashing. There’s a difference between stating a concern like, ” Nintendo needs to do more marketing and promoting” and trolling like “Nintendo is dead and is going to fail!” The last comment provided nothing to the thread other then to start a fight. John Pope STFU! david jarman Speaking of rehashes. sithWiiU Sony > Nintendo. At least Sony doesn’t rehash games. Every gen, they have a new franchise. Not like Mario 34 and Zelda 23. Only a few are true gamers Bla Bla Bla The only thing that is rehashed is your comments and who cares if they keep making them it always out sells anything gaystation or sexbox can produce and COD is rehased how many times? Come back when you get some sense Twilord Nintendo fanboy here, please don’t associate the Playstation with gay people. US gays are awesome! Sony are not,.. Also “Sexbox” sounds like your complimenting Microsoft. Jeremy Thompson well they all should get compliments they all have their area they make good games for, just because someone doesnt like them makes them bad. Only a few are true gamers Well myself im a nintendo fanboy and sorry don’t care for gays but each to there own and as for sony’s next station i will buy all of them at some point and sexbox is just a inside joke…see im laughing! Chiwawa sexbox…… sounds legit. kean Ok, every game sony releases on their console anymore is the same shit, COD, Battlefield, and if you want to go exclusives, uncharted 3 sucked. LBP 2 was just like LBP. The FPS’s suck but that doesn’t mean Sony’s exclysives are bad cause their rehashed. LBP 2 was awesome, God of war was awesome. The only fifference is Nintendo comes out with one game per franchise per console, Sony makes 50 games per franchise for one console then forgets them. Is that good? Wasnt with crash bandicoot, they trashed that guy and I loved that game. Sony and nintendo are awesome, cause even tho they rehash, they’re still awesome games Only a few are true gamers Sith is weak and let him eat static..He would not know gaming if it hit him in the fcking face kean I’m getting the vibe this guy ONLY plays FPS’s and thinks he’s a gamer Only a few are true gamers He’s no true gamer. in his mind he’s thinks he’s a gamer. A true gamer go way past one console and sticking to one console in his mind makes him one and that is what is laughable kean He obviously has no appreciation for classics, if it weren’t for nintendo, the gaming industry wouldn’t exist. But just cause they where big 30 years ago doesn’t mean they’re old, they’re STILL the most innovative gaming company among the big 3. I feel sorry for this guy, he probably didn’t have an awesome, nintendo, childhood. I grew up playing everything, nintendo and sony and learned to love them both. Only 10 year olds pointlessly argue 1 console is better. Jeremy Thompson playing my little pony don’t make you a true gamer either 😉 . I haven’t lately here read a comment from a real gamer, why? It maybe because they wouldn’t bother joining in on these kind of conversations and you can find that these kind of arguments are on every forum that has to do with games. Only a few are true gamers Dude you know nothing about true gaming and from what i see from your comments my little pony is all you play so please take your little faggot comments to someone who cares..A real gamer is someone who buys games no one else will and not stick to one console and you sure are stuck in that group so sorry your not a real gamer now go back to playing farmville and i will be playing classic games that you may not have heard of greengecko007 “LBP 2 was just like LBP.” I stopped right there. You clearly have no idea what you are talking about. kean Tell me what was so different about it other than bots and world building machanics? Rob Lucci Sony never make rehash games….never. kean Worst part is Sony released all those games with in 6 years, nintendo made there games in like a 30 year span briwas101 What you forget is that Sony often moves on to other franchise too. Sony won’t make Killzone25 like Nintendo will make Mario25. Sony moves on to new franchises so we can look forward to new characters and new worlds. Meanwhile, Mario is still Mario and Nintendo can’t come up with any new IPs. kean That’s the thing though, Mario is timeless, lovable, childhoodlike, nostalgia, Nintendo MASCOT. Nintendo doesn’t move on like sony and that’s what makes them better. Everybody loves nintendos mascots and they wouldbt be an amazing company without them. Sony though has a lot of games that come and go, they pass and sony will never stand the test of time without a mascot. Sony doesn’t have a mario. They’re just… a company that liscences games. Nothing more and nothing less. The only people that don’t like new mario games either didn’t have a childhood or are new to gaming. Btw, nintendo made scribblenaughts and pikmin fairly recently, so they’re still adding new franchises to the juggernaught nintendo list. That’s why super smash bros works and playstion allstars doesn’t. The characters all have that nintendo feel, they belong together, it gives you goose bumps when the opening credits come on and all your childhood heros are in one game ready to kick ass. Where playstation allstars has a lot of 3rd parties, a bunch of different companies making their own styled character, theres no unity feel, no nistalgia, and no crash bandicoot or spyro which is an ass move, and a bunch of other forgetable characters. Like fucking fat princess, that’s the stupidest character ever in a fighting game. Put her in over crash? My point is, id rather sony STICK with there IP’s than ditch them, cause crash was awesome. Nintendo doesn’t make that mistake. Superstick98 Yep. And they all suck. Name one Sony franchise that has lasted over 15 years that is actually good??? Jeffery02 I get your point, but this kind of an unfair question. Ratchet and Clank, Twisted Metal, and Arc the Lad are all good franchises. The PlayStation is only about 17 years old as well while Nintendo has had a hand in the VG industry for over 30 years. I agree that Nintendo is better (for me at least) but lets not hate the consoles. Hate the haters and remember that a true gamer will play ANY decent game that they can get access to regardless of what system it’s on. Jeremy Thompson omg O_O someone with sense, watch it they might all bash you >< Jeffery02 As a Nintendo fan, I’m sadly used to the hate. I really try my best to keep an objective view though. If I don’t regret what I say regardless of the back lash bashing, then the haters (in my mind at least) lost the conflict. Paul Wright final fantasy lol Sylux Actually Final Fantasy is a bad example, it started of at Nintendo consoles, and in the meanwhile it has seen the light on Nintendo consoles and handhelds, Playstation systems, PsP, Xbox and PC. So not the best example. Personally I love Final Fantasy too, got almost all, only exceptions are FFXIII/FFXIII-2 LeTroll I smell a troll TwinTails It’s the same argument with you guys isn’t it? Sony wishes they could even grasp the legacy of Nintendo’s franchises. John Yes, that’s why PSAS Sold horribly, because nobody gave a shit about them and have no idea who a majority of them are. Even the new fan boys had no idea who the fuck most of them were. And yes, Zelda and Mario are rehasges, that explains why each entry has near critical acclaim and have broken sales records 🙂 david jarman Yeah, that’s why ps4 is launching with killzone. Dan Jacobson nintendo make a new franchise each gen, retard! Sylux By only looking at the picture below I can’t help it, but I really have to disagree with you and you are being blind. The N games yes, same character, but completely different settings, the Sony games (the ones used at the picture that is) They are all the exact same picture using the same car, same character, same gun, same setting, only better graphics. Haters gonna hate me for this but in this case I seriously can’t be arsed at all, as the fact of “Rehashes” is proven to the point better then a 1000 words can describe. Super Buu Keep using a dead argument. Nintendo keeps making new series by the year. Few of them manage to become popular and others stay in Japan which is why people assume Nintendo never makes anything new when they actually do. Sony’s franchises grown stale and repetitive quickly as opposed to the big Nintendo series who have the gift to be open to new ideas. If anything, a series that grows boring in 6 years opposed to a series that keeps growing strong for 30 or 25 years should be considered a weakness. dylanbob121 ahhhh i knew a troll would be here at some point Zorbo85 LMFAO we are not complaining you tool we are simply stating FACTS that you slurpers seem to always avoid!!! The wii u has been a total joke,lame launch,no pikmin3,stupidly 350 bucks pricetag,ubisoft turning their backs due to hillarious sales,EA saying there are no games in the pipeline for the wii u and again it is left to the same mario and mario kart to try and save the day!!! 25 years of the SAME games is milking it abit to much……nintendo are supposed to be kings of innovation if so where are the NEW franchises?Not the same rehashes but in just 3D and HD!! Only a few are true gamers Hahahaha Dude your like some kind of cancer and needs to be destroyed but till than i will enjoy seeing your comments thumbed down like the foolish one you are and please stop acting as if your a real gamer because your not and yes i do play playstation3 and xbox360 and own every other console ever made since the atari and how many console do you own zorbie 1 maybe 2 Now as i said most trolls stay to one console or company like sony and really man grow a pair…Facts…That’s a joke in itself We all know the truth your mad because Wii U is awesome and sony is dull and boring…. NkoSekirei same the trolls need to go get a fking life ps4ultimania ok nintendos steping out for makers big time here i hope it works but those people are gunna need the engines Ugslick They can use their own engines, most developers have their own engines already that they build their own games upon, that are tweaked to their preferences graphics wise, and in terms of smoothness and speed (FPS), every Nintendo approved develop gets access to Unity, as well as a bunch of other Nintendo stuff like their Web Framework, Miiverse etc WellWisher Devkits reportedly come with Unity Engine. Not sure if that applies to the free ones but it would make sense. Sylux Thumbs up for that comment, from a Sony fan (assuming you are one obviosuly from the name) You are one fo the very rare PS fans who make a comment wich really deserves respect, well said. Ugslick There is a LOT of buzz in the indie community right now, hopefully Nintendo capitalizes on that, keeps that buzz growing and actively reached out to indies to help them start making games on Wii U. I really want to see turn-based strategy games, and RTS’s and potentially other types of games weve only seen on PCs so far like Diablo III, World of Warcraft, Starcraft, Civilization + other smaller games like these… (Check this out for what I mean: http://nintendoenthusiast.com/14893/battle-worlds-kronos-guns-of-icarus-wii-u/) Dominic Coradazzi Hmm.. RTS games and strategy games… how about Pikmin and Fire Emblem? Or were talking about from indie developers? kean Dude, could you imagine CIV 6 on the wii u gamepad? Holy crap LopsidedPasta This is fantastic. Nintendo, CUT YOUR LICENSING FEES BY 1/3rd FOR A YEAR!!! It would revitalize third party developers big time! Squid Yes! Wayne Beck Nintendo has already announced that the Dev Kit ships with Unity and the Nintendo HTML5 Dev Software, fyi. Great Plan for Nintendo though. It’s prolly heavily focused on Indies too. Nintendo is going to own the Indie Market this Gen. Ibi Salmon Well, this is certainly interesting news. I wonder which developers are getting these games, though. Linskarmo Good for potential developers, and good for us hopefully. Chiwawa devs: hmmm, this device is powerful! miyamoto: no shit sherlock. Revolution5268 Reggie:Bitch please your body is not ready. Daniel Golightly although, fire reggie for not getting more going to fight all the bad press (and by bad I mean, press you are drunk go home, illegitimate press) Revolution5268 well most of this events takes place in west so it make a bit of sense to use Reggie. Chiwawa wouldnt it be something like this?: (at a party) random chick: hey reggie. wanna show a girl a good time? (try’s to pull him to a vacant room) Reggie: (pushes away)…….bitch please; your body is not ready. DENIED!! ronaldco91 I want one, but how am I going to contact Nintendo to order one? Silent Select developers. Ducked Wow, this is actually a great idea! Twilord This could be insanely awesome. Yay! TheLast Wait a minute, can a developer receive a free dev kit from Nintendo, and still not consider making games for them? Because that would be pretty damn shallow. :/ John Andalora Consider it from the developer’s perspective: IS it really worth it the man-hours and expenses to add on some features for a gamepad console that isn’t looking too good, when developers could just make what they have been into a very safe demographic that they’ve already been developing for and know how to develop for? david jarman And by doing so the gaming industry will die cause eventually people will get board with playing in the same manner. John Andalora You say that as though every single video game is the exact same in every way, and only through making a convoluted controller can we learn to truly have fun. I have fun from the game, not the controller I play it with. If people can make fun games that don’t require unnecessary additions, they will. david jarman Bullcrap. Controlling the game is a huge aspect in having fun with a game. A controller that can allow you to have more interaction with the environment adds a lot to the game. Maybe for you pushing a button and moving around is fun(and it is), but a lot of people want to do more in the game. That’s what a controller does. It allows you to have more control over your character making you more part of the character. Wii u controller may not be perfect, but its in the right direction. System power alone do not move the progress of video gaming. Everyone that plays Xbox or playstation look at your controller and tell me that gaming would be the same if the controller had never evolved and we still had a joystick with 1 button. I say nintendo is in the right direction cause I want to do more and be more a part of the game. I can see and feel that possibility with wii u game pad and if developers were so afraid to take a risk then gaming as whole would be in the next gen. TheLast I see what you mean, but them refusing to build a base is more dangerous than not releasing games on it in the long run. The longer they wait, the more difficult it’s going to be to build an install base for their type of game on the console. That’s why you’re supposed to strive to be one of the first developers on a new console while it’s fresh for this purpose. Most developers seem to have just gotten comfortable with the way things are right now, in the past they used this strategy, and it worked in the long run (SNES, PS1, and original Xbox). :/ John Andalora The difference between SNES, PS1, and xBox is the differences in how they have to process the game. That’s not the problem. The problem is that developers are all given this abnormal shaped controller with a screen and asked to add capabilities to it (since it’s Nintendo’s whole gimmick with the WII U.) this would include making something for playing only on the screen or having some kind of focus on it. For many people, it’s too confusing. They don’t know how to deal with that, and unlike the buttons, it isn’t something they can push away through not using them or assigning the same option to two buttons. The controller is far too forced into the game development, and people can’t just ignore it. Nintendo either needs to show people how to develop good games for it so they can know how to use it, or start packing pro controllers inside every Wii U so they can program for it in an easier fashion. Ibi Salmon Or they can just add off-screen play and release the game. It’s not like the game pad doesn’t have buttons that aren’t on other consoles. I’d explain more, but I believe this article can do it better than I ever could: http://gengame.net/2013/01/dear-wii-u-developers-you-dont-need-to-use-the-gamepad-touch-screen/ TheLast It’s a controller with a screen on it. There’s nothing complicated about it, it’s just easier not to try when there is less incentive or reward in doing so. It has all of the traditional functions of a normal controller. “Building an audience is about gaining fans who will buy your games, dismissing an entire demographic certainly isn’t going to help with that.” Marius Valasinas Hope that helps. More games please Tim van Broekhoven This is a really smart move, Nintendo 😀 MechLord HAHA Nintendo is desperate to get support for their overpriced wii addon John Troll number 3 is here, we just need two more and then BINGO! jcnba28 Haha do you suffer from some sort of mental disorder? CuriousManiac Its definitely a good move, and I commend them for trying to attract indie developers to their console. How this will change the gaming landscape is purely speculation, but more games on the Wii U is what is needed right now before they can roll out the big games. Its like they are trying to grease the wheels a bit. I like it. Johny i hope they’re mostly giving them to indie devs. Zorbo85 LMFAO!!!!poor DESPERATE nintendo having to resort to giving away free dev kits to try and entice 3rd partys to try and make games for it!!! After only 4 months on the market this is what nintendo has to do?BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA Is OBVIOUS what will happen…3rd party will get the free dev kits and will probably still end up not making games for nintendo’s shite over priced turkey!!! HA jcnba28 Is it your time of the month or something? LMFAO! Jon seems more like a marketing strategy to me, like why not if it will help improve sales then why not? dylanbob121 I swear you must be 8…just wondering Zorbo85 LOL PATHETIC nintendo slurpers creating accounts copying my name than writing lame shite just as i have been destroying nintendo and their over price piece of shite the wii u!!! Free dev kits after only 4 months?LMFAO!!!! John LMFAO, I surpirsed you didn’t laugh your fucking ass to death. Because you’ve laughing a lot. Try harder, man. Learn some more insults not recycled from Encyclopedia Dramatica. Zorbo85 Wii u is non existent in America, Europe and Japan……where it sold 85 percent of its orginal wii yet slurpers think this is ok? And to you slurpers saying the same thing happened to the 3ds,yes it failed till the price drop and big games………….but in that time it had zero competition!! Difference this time is that in the holidays it will go up against the next gen consoles and if sony and microsoft price well the wii u will blown out of the water!!! LOL Frostbite9 Fucking five year old twat. Jon hmm, last week the Wii U was 3rd in sales in Japan, 3DS being first, Vita being second and then the Wii U being 3rd. Europe, sales have double and even tripled in places with the release of Lego City, MH and NFS. Haven’t hear much news of NA yet Jimmy D. Fugate Wii U still has a good seven months of no competition. Between now we have E3 and a whole truckload of games to be released, first and third party. MechLord http://fc09.deviantart.net/fs71/f/2012/281/d/1/wii_u_prints_money____by_olio96-d5h6e73.gif IT PRINTS MONEY Zorbo85 LMFAO!!!!!!!!! Guest Two can play that game Nintedward Sony is amazing. Ps vita is the future of Sony (sarcasm) Zorbo85 IWATA………………..I know lets price the wii u at a ridiculous 350 bucks for 6 year tech graphics our slurpers will still go out and buy it just for the new gimmick controller!!! LMFAO!!! Zorbo85 Hey Nintendo slurpers here is guy from Nintendolife site having his say to why the wii u is failing…. snax007 said:The GamePad is a failed gimmick, the poor sales is proof that the consumers are simply not buying as it’s the same way as Wii’s motion controls. Nintendo’s only chance now is to attract core gamers with quality Nintendo IP titles, and not try to hype the GamePad or touch-screen features. preach it!!! LOL David Tims Wii U has sold more in its initial months than ps3 or xbox 360 when they were released. By your logic since all xbox 360 had to offer was better graphics, then better graphics don’t entice a consumer as much. You make no point at all actually since initial sales never define a console. The technology is really nice, there is 1/60th of a second latency between the gamepad and the tv. It’s fantastic and the best game on the console (Nintendoland) is the one that utilities the gamepad most. All wii u needs is more games which is shown by sales bursts with Monster Hunter and Lego City. Zorbo85 LOL the ps3 and xbox were released 6 and 7 years ago u slurper!!!stop living in the past!!! audi lover Haha exactly the financial world is a different place now you must be about five not to realise that John I love the fact he has no life and even admitted he has a sock account on here and that he would have sex with himself. That my friend, is what you call a life. Frostbite9 Fgt. Zorbo85 Here is one more from a LOYAL nintendo slurper over at nintendolife.com…… TreesenHauser said:@KenB Exactly. I’ve owned my Wii U since Christmas, and it’s… been somewhat disappointing to say the least. First, Pikmin 3 gets delayed. Then, Rayman Legends lost its Nintendo-exclusivity and got delayed. And now, there are maybe one or two games available I wouldn’t mind owning if it weren’t for other titles like Bioshock Infinite. What MIyamoto needs to realize is that about half the people I know don’t even know the Wii U exists. And of all the people that are aware of it, ALL of them know what the GamePad’s all about. Knowledge won’t make more games appear. Knowing to stop tapping and start swiping doesn’t make it more powerful or anything. I love Nintendo, but they need to stop all this sophisticated talk about the Wii U and actually DO SOMETHING ABOUT ITS ISSUES. If it weren’t for the fact I’m a patient and loyal fan of the Big N, I may have ditched my console by now. We already know enough about the console, now bring on the games! People that are aware of the Wii U and what the GamePad is capable of, aren’t holding off because of its price or console itself, but because there are virtually no games out right now that would hold their interest. EPIC!!! John YES! WE GOT A TROLL! WE GOT A TROLL! John OH WAIT, NO YOU DIDNT! Zorbo85 LOL miyamoto says people need to be patient with the wii u and its gamepad?LMFAO!!! Everybody can see apart from ninty slurpers that the wii u was released a year to early!!! And to all your slurpers saying the same thing will happen to the ps4 etc get real!!! The ps4 and next xbox will be arriving on SCHEDULE!!!when they launch they will not have a pathetic launch window that lasts 4 months!!! John And now, your arguements have went down the shitter. John Again, this man masters in the way of no life. 🙂 Zorbo85 Aww just as your wiiu and nintendo are ruined!!! LOL John Again, no life 🙂 Zorbo85 No life when I been railing your mom for 3 years? LOL John Oh really, how hard did you bang her? John Come on man, tell me! Zero Shut up, shut up! You’re right the WiiU sucks, just leave us alone now! … … … You wish we would say that, don’t you. The WiiU was released early on purpose. A) It will have a head start B) By around E3 it will have its bugs fixed C) Nintendo wanted to learn consumers opinions and feedbacks, in order to improve their console. D) By the time the other 2 are released, they will have the biggest amount of sales, (probably) the cheapest console, the most polished console, and the biggest library of games. How it bad to be released early, again? Zorbo85 The wii u was released a year to early and is evident to why pikmin 3 was delayed as nintendo stupidly did not realise how long games take to make them HD!!! If nintendo had waited till this years E3 to release the wii u and show demos of mario,mario kart,zelda and have pikmin 3,rayman and a new wii sports game at launch,the browser and miverse would have also been ready……………….yet nintendo’s lame idea to get ahead start on the next gen has been a epic fail!!! John Of course it has, with it selling more than a million copies it’s first month and starting to increase in sales a bit with it’s FP Games coming soon. It’s gonna be a failure for sure when Zelda comes out. Zorbo85 LOL wow the first month……………..since then its sales have been a joke compared to the wii!!! John You just compared a Nintendo console to a Nintendo console…… Zorbo85 A ninteno slurper over at nintendolife just came up with a new epic name for the wii u…………………DUSTCOLLECTORU!!! lmfao!!!! John English, Mother fucker, do you speak it? Zorbo85 Yeah to your mom EVERYNIGHT why? John I just wanted to know if you past simple Kindergarden level education. Which is hard to believe seeing how your knowledge of words are limited to troll words that ED doesn’t give a shit about. dylanbob121 If I had a dime for every time you said slurper… Zorbo85 John the wii u has been an epic fail yet you ninty slurpers do not want to admit it and keep making comparisons to consoles that launched 6 and 7 years ago!! Miyamoto said that consumers need to be pateint with the wii u……………..ermm no miyamoto the wii u needs the PROMISED games!!!! moto saying that goes to show that even himself is clueless as to what to do to help the dustcolectorU!! John Tell me, how hard have you fucked my mother, and when you did fuck her, were you proud? Zorbo85 Ask your mom John YAY! YOU JUST FUCKED A 500 POUND FAT WOMAN! CONGRAUTLATIONS! 🙂 Jon the promised games are still coming, Pikmin is the only anticipated one that was delayed by Nintendo and Raymond was because of Ubisoft. Other than that, the other are still coming. Zorbo85 John your wii u is a joke and when the next gen arrives it will not last another year!!! LOL John Yes, the next gen, you mean the X-Box 720 that will have require an always online connection to the internet and a PS4 with titles nobody gives a shit about! 🙂 MechLord Better than Super rehash bros LOL!!!! Nintedward Try Super smash bros. A game that is better than anything Sony have ever put out. They even tried to copy it with Gaystation allstars and couldn’t even sell a million copies lol. Floptacular Sony John oh yes, Rehash, that’s why it’s the most critically acclaimed franchises of all time that has a die hard fan base. total rehash Zorbo85 What cracks me up is that your slurpers cannot wait for mario and mario kart to be in HD……………that is the problem mario does not need to be in HD the only game that deserves HD is zelda!!! John I thought you said it was a rehash? MAKE UP YOUR MIND MAN! Zorbo85 you call yourself a true ninty fan yet you do not know that miyamoto said the next zelda game will be COMPLETLEY different and nothing like we have ever seen before!!!? That aint a rehash rettard!!! LOL John Yes it is, but you said on multiple blog posting that it was a rehash. Nice try man, troll harder bro. Frostbite9 What the fuck is a Slurper, fgt? Zero By the etymology, I would assume it means “sucker” in it’s most literal sense. (As in sucking penises) John Oh Zorbo, I might smell a life for you if you stop because I can go all night! Zorbo85 go all night?……just like your mom!!!! John You’re so proud you fucked a fat woman, aren’t you? Frostbite9 Zorbo, you are only five years old, get out of here, you fgt. John He’s just so happy that he had sex with a fat woman. He loves it by the way he’s posting it! 🙂 Zorbo85 Mario HD mario kart HD……..fail Zelda HD what it deserves…………..wow ninty slurpers so that is one good game you got to look forward to!!! And dont dare mention super smash as that is IDENTICAL to gamecube but with just HD!! lol John Yes, Mario Galaxy would never look great in HD. Would it? Zorbo85 No it was fine the way it was you rettard!!! It cracks me up that you slurpers think HD will make mario games miles better…………..graphics aint shite it is how you play the game that matters!!! The wii was not HD but mario was popular by the way you played with the wii mote slurpers!!! LOL John Oh, I know that, but it’s really how far I can troll a troll. Jon it’s more the fact that we will get a nice game that will also be in HD, yes it will be similar to other Mario games but they were usually pretty good and the fact that it is HD and will probably be a great game just makes it all the better. The game age is changing, yes graphics are not what makes a game but with all the kids growing up these day, they have the idea that shit graphics mean shit games and won’t even attempt it so with that, they make an amazing game that will appear to the people who loved Mario for the last 30 years as well give the newer kids the look they may be looking for and find a great game in itself as well. There isn’t anything wrong with wanting HD graphics either. It is a great game and with HD graphics, it’ll just add all the more to it. Frostbite9 Wow! Are you retarded! Frostbite9 I will fucking kill you if you use the term ”slurper” one more time.. Zorbo85 Mario bros wii sold 35 million on the original wii Mario bros u with HD sold……………850k!!! LMFAO!!! John because good sales equal failure. Also, nice job, thumbing up your own posts. MechLord Nintendrones are trying to defend their shitty console awhh John Yes, because even virgins play games. MechLord LOL slurper likes Iwata dick Frostbite9 Zorbo, you’re a fucking faggot, do you EVEN know what a dick IS? Zorbo85 Your Dad does!!! LOL John You fucked his dad? Dude you are gay. Go home, faggot 🙂 Zorbo85 LOL u need to go back and read my comment u slurper!!! John oh yes, said by the guy who said he prodely fucked a fat woman Frostbite9 My dad died from lung Cancer two years ago. John Slurper – An umimaginative term used by lifeless trolls to try and troll Nintendo fans, little do they know, This term is retarded and that it will most likely equal to them dying alone in 30 years. 🙂 Frostbite9 Hey, John, if you have a Wii U, what is your NNID? John Sorry, I can’t give that out, someone might troll me. Frostbite9 Damn, okay. Frostbite9 Nice grammar, lolno, dumbass. beerkin How is the console shitty dude? It’s mode powerful than the 360 ps3, offers features not available until now and has Nintendo ips. Explain to me how it’s a shitty console. Nathan This should have been done a year before release! John Troll gave up? 🙂 I’m a troll to, so I know how to troll, trolls. 🙂 dylanbob121 …wut? MechLord You Nintendrones like slurping Iwata’s dick right in your to mouth John And so do you, sucking Bill Gate’s and SOny’s cock. BTW, Enjoy multiple angry fans for X-Box and Low sales for PS4. MechLord LOL at least we don’t have an ipad as a controller John “At Least” COme on, try harder, bro. MechLord Enjoy your shitty rehashes slurper LOL John Oh yes, you mean, are critically acclaimed rehashes that has millions of fans on there sides. Try harder, come on man, this is easy! MechLord Wii U has no games LMAO!!!!! John PS3 HAS NO GAMES OR FANS, JUST A BUNCH CHARACTER NOBODY CARES ABOUT. jcnba28 Another troll with no life. Why aren’t you playing your playstation? Oh that’s right because it sucks. LMAO MechLord Slurpers like getting screwed over LMAO!!!!!! Zorbo85 They just cannot handle that nintendo have screwed up with the over priced gimmick wii u!!! LOL John And X-Box EMployee Orth trolled there customers, I’d love to see the sales for that piece of shit after that 🙂 Zorbo85 Wii u 350 bucks………………zero games in 4 months…………………ok nintendo at last years E3 you bragged about the fantastic 3rd party support…………………oh really was that why ubisoft owned you? LMFAO John Yes and I can’t wait for no games for X-Box 720 because who the fucks want Always online DRM? Zorbo85 LMFAO that is a RUMOUR u pathetic fag!!!the next xbox aint even been shown or had any leaks yet you are just going off what moron writers are saying!!! John Yes, a rumor, that’s why Microsoft emplyoee Orth spent the entire day trolling and defending it against X-Box users on twitter about it telling them to “Dealwithit” Zero Are you aware that psychological evidence suggests that your constant attempts to make us feel our console is bad actually reflects your own dissatisfaction with your console of preference, or maybe even with your life? Zorbo85 LOL 350 bucks yet you cannot even use 2 wii u controllers for any games?LMFAO!!! Only 1 wii u controller can be used at anytime with the other slurper having to use the 6 year old wii mote? FAIL!!! Zero Actually 2 game pads are supported Plus 4 wiimotes plus + nunchuck Plus 4 Pro controlers Plus 1 Balance Board How many players is that? Zorbo85 LMFAO where are the games then that support this? Oh wait LOL Zero I didn’t say there were. You’re acting defensive. John And 400 for old franchises nobody cares about on PS4. Zorbo85 Nobody cares about?LMFAO the wii has been out for 4 months yet the ps4 has more gamer interest and the controller has only been shown!!! LOL John “The Wii”? That last I checked, that’s been out for 7 years. Zero Explain something to me, how is gaining enemies a goal or a positive activity. I wouldn’t go around insulting people in life. I don’t think it is… convenient. Memento Mori. sithWiiU I want your hairy ass to sit on my face. John You what’s sad, this is just most likely him sockpuppeting as somelse. Meaning he wants to have sex with himself. And if it is someone else, than you just made yourself look like a fucking idiot right now, that does not earn you respect nither do people argee with you. david jarman Why are you so dumb? Maybe if you weren’t so busy trolling you might have learned that they will being doing duel game pad in the near future. Research before opening your penis riddled mouth. http://www.vg247.com/2012/09/15/wii-u-games-using-dual-gamepads-will-launch-sometime-next-year-says-nintendo/ Zorbo85 350 bucks for 6 year old tech………..hmmmmmmm RIPOFF!!! LMFAO John Dude, you’re running out of arguements. Try harder, bro. Zorbo85 LMFAO the sales of the wii u prove all my points yet you slurpers still think the wii u is fine!!! HA Zero LMFAO You’re defending two unreleased consoles. John What sales? you said it costs 360 dollars. You’re fucking retarded man, try harder 🙂 beerkin You have got to be one of the most sad and pathetic wastes of life on this earth. What purpose do you serve? You are a loner, a loser, and obviously have no talent or friends and family. You should just off yrself. No one would mind if you did. Zorbo85 Nintendo put so much focus on the wii u gamepad…………….well where are the games for it nintendo? LMFAO John Coming out in a month or so….. seriously, try harder :/ Zorbo85 LMFAO what so decent games took 6 months? Zero Good Games take time, mind you. John No, critically acclaimed masterpieces took 6 months. david jarman No, you took six months that’s why you’re under cooked. Zero Jesus man, do you work as a secretary or somethin’. You type sooooo much.  What, you think he could actually get a job? When he spends all his time here? beerkin Where are your parents. What kind of fucked up upbringing did you have. You re truly a worthless human being that brings nothing positive to anything you do. You are the ultimate example of what can go wrong in society. I mean what kind a awful waste of space has 50 comments on a site dedicated to Nintendo and all of them are you antagonizing and being a cocksucking asshole. Look in ht mirror bro and ask yourself why am I,doing this. Sad truly sad. david jarman Yeah, they put a lot of quality into the game pad. That’s why it’s so responsive. It has less latency then most top of the line tv’s. Meaning the communication from the console streamed to the game pad is quicker then a console communicating to the tv. There are plenty of games to play. Games I’m playing; Trine 2 Need for speed Mass effect 3 Blops 2 Spiderman Nano assault neo(great game) All these games are fun and that is the most important aspect to any game. How many great games can you fully play and finish in one month? Here’s the thing about gamers like you. You complain when there’s not that many games. You complain when there’s too many released back to back. You complain when they are rushed. You complain when they take too long. The point is your an immature, impatient, spoiled little prick. Not to mention useless and lifeless. Zorbo85 Zelda aint coming till 2014!!!! LMFAO Zero Zelda Wind Waker HD released this year Zorbo85 REHASH!!! LOL Zero So what. It’s still a Zelda game. I just pointed that out, again, you’re acting defensive. BTW I’d rather play a Zelda game that takes time rather than a rushed one. Jon Wind Waker was rated one of the top games of the decade and people absolutely loved it and wanted a remake of it just like OOT. John Of course, a critically acclaimed games is being rereleased on Wii U. Whats that? You here a lifeless troll who thumbs up his own comments? Well, fuck me sideways, there he is 🙂  You’ve posted so many consecutive comments with absolutely no progression, that there is no way in hell that you can’t call this spam. Stop spamming the comment section. MechLord My 6 year old PC is stronger than Gimmick U LMAO!!!!!! John “gimmick” or for fuck sakes, try harder man. YOu’re running out of ideas. Zorbo85 Wii launched with a free copy of wii sports and zelda in 2006 Wii U launches with a rehash of mario bros on wii but with HD graphics? LMFAO John Hey tip. it’s ca;;ed Wii U. Zorbo85 GIMMICKU and DUSTCOLLECTORU!!! lmfao Zero Zorbo85 and MechLord bash a console furiously. If it really was as bad as you say, you wouldn’t have to mention it. Zorbo85 LOL sales prove our points and the fact that after 3 months nintendo dropped their quarter sales from 5 million to 800k!! John Dude, sales again? TRY HARDER :/ Zero Again, if sales prove your points, why is it necessary to type more than 10 posts in five minutes. Really, you’re quite amusing. John Yes, I love the way you thumb up ypur own comments knowing that your life is a wreck, your mom fucking hates you and your dad left you as a child 🙂 david jarman The only gimmick that’s collecting dust is your lifeless penis. Zorbo85 All nintendo had to was call it WII2 and all the confusion of gamers just thinking it was an add on for the wii would have been resolved!!! WII U worst name ever!!! John Dude, seriously, all thi9s because of a namee? Loser. Zero The name. Seriously. This doesn’t deserve a reply. Zorbo85 WII U,zero games and zero marketing…………way to go nintendo great way to launch a new console!!! LMFAO John to go thumbing up your comments like a fucking retard to try to fool people into thinking they agree with you. MechLord I thumbed him up Zero You seem to have the same opinion on everything. You must be soulmates. Zorbo85 mechlord likes my comments you rettard!!! John Oh, your sock, RIIIGHT. Zero How can you place a number on marketing. Quantity of Games>0. Kindergarten math. By the way, I do not believe it’s anatomically possible to “laugh your ass off” MechLord Even the Dreamcast is better than ipad U LMAO!!!!!! John Yes, Dreamcast, Sega’s last console. SO how many socks have you made, Zorbo? Or is this another sex slave? MechLord Your Iwata’s sex slave Slurper LMAO!!!!!! John your Zorbo’s, oh wait, Zorbo has enough slaves, your just that hooker nobody cares about. david jarman Yup! It’s sorebum85. You know you’re lonely when you have to laugh at your own comments. Zero Ugh ipad… Disgusting Zorbo85 Zero of course marketing nis big for a console you MORON!!!the wii had several adverts telling you everything about and how the wii controller works………..the wii u has zero adverts with nintendo just saying you need to use it to get it!!! LMFAO Zero I’ve seen adds on TV and Internet and I live in freakin’ LATIN AMERICA were there is ZERO adds for all three consoles. BTW I would appreciate your use of correct grammar, that way I wouldn’t have to decipher your messages. Edit: You might need to look up a map to find Latin America. david jarman You might want to explain to him what a map is. dylanbob121 ever heard of replying?oh yeah,trolls have no brains Zorbo85 Miyamoto yesterday……………….you need to be patient and get to know how to use the gamepad………………..right that took all of 5 minutes now where are the games moto? LOL John being made much sooner than Sony’s franchises nobody care about. Zorbo85 John the ps4 and next xbox ALREADY have more gamer interest than the gimmick turd that is wii u and they aint even been shown yet!!! LMFAO John still online DRM for X-box MechLord Still ipad controller for Wii U LMAO!!!!!! Zero … *chuckles* John OH YES, BECAUSE AN IPAD CONTROLLER IS MUCH WORSE THAN THE CONTROVERSAL DRM PACTICES THAT WON’T EVEN LET YOU PLAY A FUCKING GAME UNLESS YOUR ONLINE! Daniel Golightly not to mention that completely locks the game to your console. No more gamefly for you. Zero Aaaaaaand that’s the fourth time you post that… david jarman Apparently wii u has too much of your attention. You’re on here more then me. Zorbo85 Xbox and ps3 170 million combined…………..wii 98 million……………hmmmmm wonder which consoles have more interest!!! LOL Zero LOL. Okay, I might be wrong but I thought Wii had more sales than Xbox + Ps3. Even if this isn’t true, you are aware that your are putting the sales of TWO DIFFERENT CONSOLES, right. Wii sold about twice the amount of the PS3 or Xbox. Besides, most people that owned Xbox/Ps3 owned a Wii. John Because adding the sales of two companies that have nothing in common against just one is fair. Try HARDER! Jon Xbox 360 – 76 million, PS3 77 million, that does not equal 170 million, that equals 153 million and to compare the popularity of consoles, you cannot just look at 2 consoles, if you could then I could say, “hey, Wii sold 98 million and ps3 sold 77 million so they sold 175 million consoles so therefore the Xbox 360 has less interest” and vise-versa with Wii and Xbox. See my point? you need to compare on a 1:1:1 ratio otherwise it is skewed against any of them no matter how you look at it. Zero False info. Source please. PS3 = about 77 million Xbox = about 25 million Tell me Zorbo, how much is 77 + 25. I know it’s a little complicated, and that you’re a little slow, so you are allowed to use a calculator. david jarman If you have to combine two consoles sales to beat one(nintendo) then you have already failed. Zorbo85 John your wii u is a complete joke and you are just gutted as you spent 350 bucks ona gimiick turd!!! Go and cry Zero Elapsam semel ocassionem non ipse potest Lupitter reprehendere. John i’LL CRY AFTER YOU REALIZE YOU SPENT 5 HOURS OF YOUR life trying to troll a troll and that you admited to have a sock and that you fucked a guy, a fat woman and sucked SOny’s and Microsoft’s cock. Have fun in your horrible life while I live on and actually have one. Zorbo85 LOL ipad only been around since 2010 and it has sold 250 million already………….wii arrived 2006 and only 98 million!!! OWNED!! Zero …? *chuckles* Jon Compared to the 76 million Xbox360 and 77 million PS3’s. The difference between consoles and the ipad, there is a much larger interest in the ipad as it is not gaming, it is basically a computer (actually a tablet computer) so it would be used by a lot more people that the 3 consoles combined. Zorbo85 Last E3 yeah yeah pikmin 3 and rayman defo launch titles……………pikmin been delayed for 6 months…..rayman delayed for 7 months and lost its exclusivity!!! OWNED again!!! John Going to sleep, but don’t worry. I’ll be back 🙂 JUst follow my lead and troll these trolls into realizing they don’t havce a life 🙂 Zorbo85 going to sleep with your wii u controller!!! LMFAO Zero This genuinely made me laugh. John Yep, while I dream of good games and Zelda while you stay up wasting your life 🙂 Superstick98 XD MechLord You dream of no games because Wii U has no games LMAO!!!!!! John No games except Zelda, Metroid, mARIO AND ssb. oH WIAT, THOSE ARE CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED, MY BAD. MechLord Wii U only has Super rehash bros LMAO!!!!!! John And Zelda, Mario, Metroid, Pokemon and Star Fox….. yeah, John as well as AC3, Mass Effect 3 and Batman: Arkham City,oh yeah, we’re totally fucked, huh? dylanbob121 watch out! new troll on the lose! Superstick98 Zelda is a good game. Zorbo85 You dream of good games while stroking your wii u controller? LMFAO John just like how you stroke your vagina. zerooooo Are you a ps4 fan or a xbox fan? Just answer it Superstick98 Haha. Sure thing man. Zorbo85 Hey john have a good sleep while you craddle and stroke your wii u controller wishing about all the games u want!!! LMFAO Zero Even if he loved the WiiU to those levels, I don’t think sleeping with it would be the best idea. I mean, he would probably break it. However, there is no way for me to know at the time what he does or does not. Superstick98 You fail at life. John love the fact I keeping bringing up that I have a life and you don’t and you have not said anything to counteract that 🙂 Zorbo85 John…..the only nintendo slurper to sleep with his wii u controller!!! LMFAO!!! Zero Zorbo the only person in the world who gives a f*** John What, if I sleep with my Wii U remote, than I can go on an LSD NIghtmare with Nintendo characters. (I was kidding both parts) Zorbo85 Hey john a life?Some how I dont think sleeping with your controller assumes that you have a life…………….Try sleeping with a girl sometime u may like it!!! LMFAO Zero You seem to be certain that he sleeps with the WiiU gamepad. How do you know this? Do you stalk him? 0.0 Superstick98 XD Zorbo85 Kinda OBVIOUS!!! Zero Kinda obvious that YOU STALK HIM? LOL. Learn to use grammar. John Oh yes, you mean my girlfriend who is out of town. I’ll fuck her when she get’s back. Zero How come every conversation on this webpage ends up about sex or peoples’ mother’s. Really, it’s quite amusing. Zorbo85 Hey john when your gf gets back?LMFAO…………….The only gf’s you have are your left and right hands!!!! LMFAO!!! John You mean your right and left hands. Zero LOL John Sorry wrong one. Zero Aren’t you supposed to be sleeping? Zorbo85 LOL now you resort to using my disses at you to try and diss me? LMFAO Zero -_-” Superstick98 Can we please get back to the topic? This is getting ridiculous. Zero Agreed sithWiiU I don’t need my whole hand to get you off, only 2 fingers will do. Zorbo85 Face the music john?yeah you sleep with your wii u controller thinking it is a girl dreaming and slurping about playing mario in HD………….Nice life!!! LMFAO Superstick98 Are you seriously going to keep talking about what John dreams about all day? -_- MechLord I find it hilarious Zero Would you stop your creep-o stalking comments. Let John sleep however he sleeps. Edit: BTW why are you interested in his girlfriend or lack thereof. Are you thinking of… sithWiiU I have alot of wetdreams about all the fun we had with the PS Move controller. Zorbo85 Ok now back to the wii u the wii u could have been great but for nintendo to go away from what made the wii so popular is crazy!!! The wii was so popular as it got people and familys up out of their seats and move around like crazy…silly but really fun,now with the wii u controller that caters more for people to sit down. Dumb move!!! Zero So you basically think zero innovation or change is what gets you sales right? F logic.  YOU ALL COPIED ME! zerooooo If you think about it the motion controls are still there… MechLord I just want a gamecube like console no ipad U LMAO!!!!!! Zero …? *chuckles* Guest Then go buy a Gamecube. Why would want an iPad? Those things are crap. I doubt you have enough money for it, but you should consider getting a Wii U, too. Zorbo85 zero the wii was so popular due to motion controls and as it was a total new way of playing games!!! With the wii u controller they have go on the opposite direction with that now more catered for kids to sit down with and not invlove the family anymore!! As the saying goes if it aint broke dont fix it,,,,selling 98 million is not broke!!! Zero Ah, I get what you’re saying. Dunno ’bout the standing or sitting part, but people on miiverse often comment being playing with their girlfriends/boyfriends/parents/brothers, etc. so I don’t think they deviated too much from that. Sorry for my misunderstanding. MechLord What the hell is that website Zero nothing, it automatically hyperlinked. Sorry. Zorbo85 come on with wii sports bundled in everyone in the family could get up and play tennis,golf bowling etc. With the wii u controller you can not swing that about like you could with the wii controller. They should have stuck to the wii controller but made it more amazing and have better motion controls!! Zero I like Nintendoland better than Wii Sports, but I do see your point. I guess they could’ve gone down that road. zerooooo So hows that Vita? Zero Zerooooo? WTH zerooooo I think i have been here longer than you so dont “Zerooooo? WTH” me david jarman Are you fucking kidding me? You can use both the gamepad and motion controller at the same time. You can have up to five players if the game allows it. I play with my family and friends. I can also choose to play single player alone while letting my wife and friends use the tv. Nintendo gave us options. Zero Hate the disqus system MechLord Better than any other commenting system Zero Well, I can’t see the latest comments because of the glitchy Disqus, but I assume Zorbo and the others are having a sexually explicit discussion. Please reply anything so I can get back on track. MechLord Just refresh the page Zero Doesn’t work, I just start with the comment of this Luigi guy and no matter how much I scroll down I can’t seem to reach the newest comments. MechLord click on the newest comments bar Guest Ya Benjamin Alexander Swindells I want a WiiU devkit… 🙁 BeanerSlayer lol the little N is practically begging developers. RIP wii u sithWiiU I think I’ve seen you in a gay club in the Bronx once. Silent What people dont understand is this: The better games we have, the more hate we’ll have! The only reason why people hate on a console is because they have to convince themselves that they are not missing out on anything. With any system, I am sure there is a few games we’d all like to play, but if you’re like me and only have the budget for one console you have to prioritise and it can be hard to see some games (MGS 4, Ni No Kuni, Journey) release on a console you don’t have. So I am sure the haters are just people who would love to try Zelda or a 3D Mario but can’t justify buying a system for only a few games. So how do they deal with missing out on one of the greatest series in gaming? They convince themselves it’s no good, and then more and more people join along also wishing to ignore the fact that even if they don’t like most nintendo games, there is certainly some things that they oughta play. This can be said about any haters, not just those who hate on Nintendo. So trolling is only lying to yourself. And whats more ironic is that some trolls in this comment section actually own a Wii U. Zorbo85 You just said it yourself A FEW GAMES!!!!! People buy consoles not just to have a FEW good games gamers want heaps and heaps of exclusives!! Why would anyone buy a wii u just to see what mario or zelda will look like in HD? Thats all slurpers have got to look forward to!!! The wii is doomed handle it!!! Silent See people, this is an example of a person who is jealous of nintendo. You want to buy a wii U but you cant buy one or a 3ds because you cant afford one. And of course the Wii is doomed, thats why they released the Wii U. Zorbo85 LMFAO poor nintendo and its slurpers…..Nintendo has resorted to BEGGING developers to make games for the shite wii u by giving away free dev kits!!! PATHETIC!!! sithWiiU I wish you can slurp me more often. John I bet you do, apparently wanting to have sex with some complete stranger/yourself totally mean you have a life. John I bet you do laugh your fucking asshole, I’m pretty you have nothing left to laugh because you reuse the same arguements like a fucking idiot. TRY HARDER! dylanbob121 you know your the only one going “LMFAO TIS NINTENOD TI SOOOOOOOooOO dDESPIRTE!!!!11!!!SONY IS SOOOOoooo EPIKKKK Waluigitime To be honest, there are only a few third party developers I am excited for. Capcom. Square, and Konami. John Slurper – An Unimaginative Term used by lifelesss trolls to decribe Nintendo players. However, this term is fucking retarded and usually results in the troll dying alone in 30 years. John BTW, Zorbo, it’s extremely obvious that your Mechtech and SithWiiU because of all three’s constant use of the worlds “LMFAO” “LMAO” and “LOL”, Similar characteristics, followed by Poor Grammar and a constant use of old arguements. Archiq09 it’s will see Suda51 will can make games on WiiU? I dont know too if with it High Voltage will make Conduit 3 on WiiU? I know they want make The Grinder 2 on WiiU (similar to L4D but with vampire, werewolf, zombie…) Revolution5268 can i have one too…i mean they are giving it for free. Ibi Salmon Sorry. Select developers only. Teem Four Tress Too Ummm, im totally not sure if this will work. If nintendos strategy doesnt work, then its a waste of money. Ben Kapferer I would love to get a free development kit, but my first game hasn’t even been released yet!
