Nintendo joins last-generation

With Wii U Nintendo fanboys, those that only bought the Wii, finally get to experience the last generation. What Xbox 360 and PS3 players got to do 2005 and 2006 respectively with HD graphics and proper online capabilities. Now 6-7 years later, it’s time for Nintendo gamers to experience old technology yet another generation.

Nintendo are once again, in my eyes, raping their hardcore fans. Last generation Nintendo missed out on countless AAA-titles because of its weak hardware. Don’t believe me being objective here? Where’s Skyrim, Modern Warfare, Assassin’s Creed, BioShock, GTA 4, The Orange Box, Dark Souls, Street Fighter 4, Resident Evil 5, Portal 2, Red Dead Redemption, Batman, Mass Effect and many more for the Wii? I don’t think I need to go on. I think it’s safe to say from a neutral point of view that the Wii was the shittiest console out of the three in terms of software and hardware perspective. It missed out on almost every massive gaming experience as I listed above. And that’s not even half of them. Nintendo fanboys defended this with the classical “We get Zelda and Mario” blah blah, but that’s just delusional. A few Nintendo exclusives doesn’t make up for all these third-party multiplatforms that Nintendo Wii missed out on. I didn’t mention first-party exclusives such as Halo 3, Gears of War, Forza Motorsport, Uncharted, and so on for the other consoles.

“HD isn’t necessary” and “I don’t care about graphics” and even “Graphic’s are about design not resolution” were common denial phrases for Nintendo fanboys justifying them paying $249 for a Gamecube with motion controller. They said that “motion controller is the future” and that “regular gaming controllers are dead”. I wonder what they will say now when the Wii U has a freakin’ tablet for a controller that’s HUGE and HD graphics, but it will still fall behind to the upcoming Playstation 4 and Xbox 720? How can they justify Nintendo buttraping them once again? Look at the Wii U titles. A vast majority are ports from current generation consoles.

What does this mean? It means that Wii U will once again be left out of massive third-party games in the future. Games that will be designed for 720/PS4 will be unplayable in the Wii U due to weak hardware just as was the case with the Wii. This means that people that buy the Wii U will have an outdated console immediately when the PS4/720 launches next year. Sad? Indeed, but Nintendo doesn’t seem to care. They still aim for that day one profit generating console and the way that’s done is simple: sell old hardware for the price of new hardware.

I sold my Wii and it was the best decision I ever made in my life. I rarely used it and got most of my money back that I wasted on it. It was vastly inferior in every sense of the way. And I have absolutely zero intentions of buying the Wii U as I know exactly how it will end up. I will miss out on major titles such as Call of Duty for 2015. Sure, it will be released on the Wii U, but in an inferior version with worse graphics, AI, and features. Wii U will go up against two much stronger competitors in every sense of the way and I don’t see them winning in anyway possible – from hardcore gamers perspective, of course. That means software quality and gaming quality. Sales are completely irrelevant here. The Wii sold more consoles than PS3 and 360 combined, but the experience the customers got was still the worst out of them all.

Thoughts on the Wii U? Are you buying it or not?

Expensive accessories are Nintendo trademarks. How about an additional controller for $170? That’s almost the price of an Xbox 360 console.

    The sad thing is, people will still buy the Wii despite criticisms. As long as it keeps shifting games such as Mario and Zelda, things are unlikely to change.
