If they do get into gaming again, though, Wii U will most likely be their first thought.

It only a matter of time before there's tons of software for the thing. It's been building gradually throughout the year while Sony and Microsoft are still trying to figure out how to make an effective launch.

BTW, played Knack today on a demo PS4 ar GameStop. W101 is better, IMO, although they are similar games to begin with.

Knack isn't really similar to W101 at all expect on the surface level Knack has more in common with Crash Banicoot or Skylanders than anything.

The problem with that thinking is the majority of the people who left the Wii upgraded to either the PS3 or Xbox 360 putting those familys in the MS/SOny line of thinking.

Microsoft and Sony already have better launch line ups than what the Wii U had last year and decent line ups. Looking at everything announced for Next Year PS4 already has the strongest line up of games launching for it, and will be matching or surpassing the Wii U software in less time than it took nintendo to ramp up.

WAT!

Remember the PS3? That should teach us not to judge a line up before release. Keep in mind disappointments can ensue even for the PS4.

I'm not trying to argue as much as trying to point out that one of the most anticipated titles on PS4 is already beat by the W101, in my opinion.

I wouldn't take Sony's. or anyone else's' lineup for granted. Sony could just as easily delay a game like Nintendo has and Sony fans won't care as much as they do if Nintendo delays a game.

while its seriously silly to base your reactions to a game based on a demo, but the two games aren't even that compreable other than both share action platform segents. Its like saying Final Fantasy XV beats out the witcher 3,

Drive Club had already been delayed till next year so Evolution can hit 1080p/60fps. The difference between Nintendo delaying a game versus Sony delaying one is that Sony's overall line up isn't as dependent on first party as Nintendo's is. I mean it will suck come February if Infamous is delayed but i'll probably end up buying Metal Gear Solid Ground Zeroes. Plus there isn't much to delay to be honest since Sony hasn't given out any hard release dates beyond early launch window,

Overall the Playstation 4 has the best mix of the three systems between first party, indies, and third party support.

WAT!

I don't care about online multiplayer.

I don't care about having the "most powerful" console.

I don't need a M rating on my games to enjoy them.

Majority of the 3rd parties I care about (SEGA, Natsume, Majesco, Capcom, etc.) make games for Nintendo handhelds and most likely won't be going anywhere on that front.

I got over Swapnote within a minute of reading the announcement. Bring on Miiverse.

The Wii U's situation sucks but it doesn't stop me from wanting one.

The 3DS is amazing and perfect.

So I have to say no, my "patience" with them is not wearing thin or otherwise.

people complaining about Wii U is at least 10X worse and dumber than Nintendo could ever be. It's like I want to agree that the console has many stupid issues early on but then some idiot is acting like some idiot so I can't bring myself to do so.

The software value is you're opinion, though. I'm comparing the Knack demo with the W101 demo.

Not to mention Wii U has just as many indies and I think their 1st party software is better. Online features on other systems doesn't mean anything to me if I don't like the games using the said features.

The interesting part for me, is that I see Sony's 1st party titles being similar to games I can get on Wii U, anyway. Assassin's Creed 4 or Call of Duty will basically feed my need for anything for a game similar to Sony's.

I'm comparing AC to inFamous and Call of Duty to Killzone. I can get a 3rd party game that's similar enough to play the game for what it is and not really care about what's going on in the story for each game.

Sony usually do have the best mix, though regarding the PS4, not yet. I'll get one a year or two down the line once there's more variety. Again for me it'll be Sony and Nintendo for the fourth generation running.

Well Pokemon X/Y is, including combined sales from multi-platform titles, about the fourth best selling game globally between Jan 2012 and the 26th of October 2013. Behind CoD:BO2, GTA 5 and Halo 4 (just). Then there are the other best sellers on the 3DS which have also topped the sales charts recently. The Wii U isn't doing great but Nintendo overall is doing just fine.

Also while people were creating these numerous doom threads I wasn't on these forums. I was playing Pokemon Y, Animal Crossing New Leaf and Wind Waker HD. I'm sure sooner rather than later I'll be off again to play Super Mario 3D World when that comes out as well as Zelda: A Link Between Worlds. I know this weekend I'll probably be enjoying Wii Sports Club.

Doomed? I really don't care. Losing Patience? Nah. Right now, if anything, I am almost wanting them to slow down on the content. What do I need patience for? I've got entertainment running out my ears.

I think PS4 has more indie titles announced but I was talking just in general the PS4 has the most games announced for it. It's not an opinion, but a fact and while I do think there is merit in choosing similar third party franchises for Wii U, at the end of the day PS4 has those as well, plus a ton of franchises that won't be on the Wii U or the better version of games. (If you care about that kind of stuff.)

Like I said I was talking in terms of the amount of games from all three major sources the PS4 is the best bet content wise. I'm wondering if a few Nintendo console only devs will eventunally bring their games to the PS4 as well.

WAT!

What is this -courteous and rational- debate between rival camps?

The kind of scenario where I might learn something... Hm. What an unfamiliar experience. :D

Miyamoto on his desire to focus more on the (hard)core Nintendo fan.

[The casual] attitude is, ‘okay, I am the customer. You are supposed to entertain me.’ [...] and to me it’s kind of a pathetic thing.

"Supposed to" do what? No one said the update would implement it aside from baseless rumors

Ya, I know Sony has alot of upcoming games. I get it. My point was that Sony could have 100 more games than Wii U, that doesn't mean I like them. I'm fine with having a Wii U only, because none of those games on PS4 will probably hold my attention anyway.

Octodad, Knack, Killzone, and inFamous, while still graphically doing well or highly regarded as "must-have" games, aren't something I would actually play over anything Nintendo has to offer. That's why I'm saying quantity is not what I'm basing my opinion off, and I never said it was.

Assassin's Creed 4 or Call of Duty would fill that "void" if I really cared to play any of Sony's games. I'm honestly ot even interested in W101(I respect PG's work on it, never the less) either, but I can still form an opinion that I would rather be playing W101 as opposed to Knack.

I know i'm just saying right now its an advantage sony has. But at the end of the day different strokes for different folks and personally I see at least one game on all three next gen systems that would get me to buy them. (X, Quantum Break, and The Order to be exact). Its a great time to be a gamer no matter what console or PC you choose for Gen 8.

The only real think that has my patience wore thin happen to be the Virtual Console's slow rollout and most importantly the advertising. I feel that Nintendo had a console with two unique pulls but they failed to really get a hook. Sony put out four new commercial spots today that get straight to the point and sell the concept of off screen play much better than Nintendo has in their major commericals so far.

Apologies if I came across as insulting. I'd like to clarify that I am specifically referring to the people who believe Nintendo is this delusional old man that can't make a decision for himself. I understand Nintendo has flaws, but when people assume they can't do anything right, it just annoys the crap out of me.

@Sony_70 Actually, I agree about the Virtual Console. The Wii Us VC is very underwhelming. It should at least have a few N64 games on there! At this point, I'm starting to lose hope we'll ever see GCN games on there...

Well I blame the way Nintendo wrote the wrappers for the original Virtual console roms to be honest. Even if they could do a giant VC dump and do a netflix style service Nintendo has no incentive too. They want to strech the VC out this time around and keep the quality of the ports really high. Plus VC allows them to pad out Nintendo downloads on light gaming months.
