Big Wii U announcements [Rumor]
Nintendo has been keeping any official announcements of whatever the Wii U is capable of doing close to themselves, making information sparse. Fortunately, Ubisoft was able to spill the beans on three things that Nintendo fans have been consistantly asking for a while: the price, release date, and specs. Along with the devs currently working on games for the system.
Firstly, the price is being finalized between $350 and $450 which is WAY off the predicted price of between $200 and $300. Secondly, the release date is going to be on November 23rd, which is also off the predicted release date of November 11th. Finally, the specs will be running at DirectX 11, and the system will be able to use Unreal Engine 4, despite devs constantly saying it won't.
Additionally, the Wii U will support 2 touch controllers, the console has 2 GBs of RAM, and 560MB for the controller. Also, Assassins Creed 3 will run at 60 fps at 1080p, compared to the 720p on PS3 and Xbox 360. The Wii U will also come with pre-installed software, which was already rumored for months. The Devs currently working to make games for the system are Crytek, EA, and Valve. The Wii U will support achievments, and have a customizable UI, similar to the PS3 and Xbox 360s UI. And Finally, the Wii U will support the vitality sensor, because it still exists.
So, what do you guys think about the new Wii U announcements?
I don't think Nintendo will make the price that high. They're more likely to decrease the price and not make nearly as much profit. It also seems like they're probably going to put a bit more ram into the thing.
Grain of salt people, or correction, truck full of salt.
Hype train, coming through! Just imagine. Nintendo exclusives, all third part games and possibly even Steam. What's the point in having any of the other consoles?
Checked your source and there was an annotation that mentions the date and specs were made up by some kid on a forum ( other information is still being considered a rumor from a "reliable source" )
I admit I am always harsh with my words, I loved SSX, and I loved Kingdoms of Amalur, I will say there are tons of titles Ive enjoyed and Gearbox those guys work serious magic with there games, even with mass effect I felt my 30 hour adventure plus multiplayer was easily worth $60 regardless of ending or extra dlc I never bought.
I just admit Ive gone for the wow factor for a while now and at this point where we cant really go much further graphically is when I believe the Japanese companies may once again take over the game market like they did back in the nes, snes days.
I only say this because they have been pushed aside this gen due to the fact the games are so expensive to produce, and I believe the WiiU may end up being what many gamers end up choosing as there console due to the fact it will have the most games due to cost of game production, will cost the least amount of money, Bring nintendo into the HD and Online world finally, and it seems it will be the only console you can share your games with your friends on as it seems both xbox and playstation seem to be forcing 1 account per game purchase rules on there next consoles to eliminate the used game market.
I wonder what console Gamestop will do the most advertising for next gen? I wonder what games Nintendo will push hardest for that console?
There may be many developers that do this.But they aren't most of the developers i assure you.If you generalize this much it is nothing short of racism on your part.So stop it and open your eyes.Nothing is white and black remember that.
I am just saying, there are many developers that choose to work where they work because they want the most money not to make the best games. I would hate to blame the publisher exclusively for many of the examples I would give as they relate to the developer too, and in some cases I feel western devs get more cocky and franchises fall apart because of endless broken promises.
"publishers, devs, one in the same". Couldn't facepalm hard enough.Look we can go on giving examples to each other all day.because as i said assholes aren'T exclusive to the west.But you should first make the distinction between publishers and developers then i could believe you know what you are talking about.Till then bye
Yeah publishers, devs, one in the same.
Diablo 3 got all casual making the gear your entire character and therfore allowing you to buy characters on the auction house.... fail Cod Elite, Ubisoft drm.
if Japan is soo bad why is it the only company you can truely hate on is Capcom(who I hate more then any company in the planet). I am not really a fan of square I am just excited to see what hitman turns out like after deus ex, and just cause 2 satisfied way more then I expected.
I admit its not in any way a big issue but the fact that Valve is the go to people and realistically the games they've released over the span that rockstar has released GTA4 2 episodes, red dead, undead nightmare episode, LA Noire, Max Payne, and gta 5 (is coming soon). Valve has released The Orange Box(which is mainly half life 2 a game so old it even had an xbox port) a non functioning port of team fortress 2, and 2 hour experiment portal. Then they made left 4 dead an awesome 4 hour game to get us pumped for half life 3. then left 4 dead 2 (which in my opinion is far worse then first game and utterly pointless to pc users with endless modded campains). and long overdue for at least counterstrike we instead get portal 2 and at this time counterstrike has not released on the consoles, nor has half life 2 episode 3 even been announced at all. I want my god damn ending you bastards how do they think they can get away with just not releasing the good game and living off there shorter less epic games. PS: give me the portal gun in a half life styled game and I might be happy but I see all there titles beyond orange box as a complete waste of time.
You know Nintendo...
Nintendo always intrigues me, I can't help it. No matter how many times they let me down they can still manage to pull my interest which is something neither Sony or Microsoft has ever been able to do.
Shit, I better get a job
It'll be a shame if MS or Sony announce a new console this year. I am not gonna want to buy a Wii U for $400 if 2 better consoles are announced before it's even released. Remember what Sony's console did to the Sega console that came out the year before it? When I was a kid I always considered Dreamcast to be the best console of the PS1 era rather than a next gen console....Wii U just reminds me of that.
Read it all....then read vitality sensor. Now I know it has to be fake..
Heres the beauty. Yet another rumor from the same source says that amazon lists Wii U games a mere 50$ ^^
[Rant] How much of a machine do you really need? I mean i like this progress in technology a lot but i think Nintendo sony and microsoft really need to start slowing down the leaps and bounds into new territory to re assess the territory that they have already discovered so that they can make a machine just as powerful as it but much more affordable.I really dont want to have water cooling units on my nintendo consoles and i also dont want to see every hair on marios face and every wrinkle on his ass.Sooner or later these games are gonna start costing over 80 dollars for a disc which i would rather be able to buy online for maybe like 20 or 40 and downloaded right to my console.We have DLC but we dont have full titles ready to be downloaded? [/End rant]
Everything about these rumors make me happy except for that price tag. $350-$450?!?!?!?!?!?!? I hope that's not the case.
This makes me wet. Extremely wet.
I'm not sure if this helps as well, but there is also rumors of the PS4 and next box specs not being able to run the UE4 engine as they are "not powerful enough"
Unfortunately, I don't have sources, I only saw about it last night along with how Epic thinks the Wii U will sell well and their UE4 will run on it.
No worries, bro. No judging. Next time, though, you might want to consult a few more sources, even if it is just a "rumor."
