yeah, like there was that thread that had like...over 90 confirmed indies (or at least download only games, which for most people is the exact same thing, let's be honest) or something for Wii U?

I never said they werent. Its just that Sony's indie support is being more pushed by the media and developers alike. Its mostly due to Sony getting the more high profile guys like Jon Blow and the transistor guys.

WAT!

Even in the download only category the Wii U is missing on the big multiplat titles, I've not heard about it getting the Wolf Among us or the Walking Dead Season 2

Well the media absolutely hates Nintendo right now relatively speaking. ;)

I love the Wii U a lot more than the N64 & GCN, and i've barely even touched the thing! I'll finally have it unboxed early DEC just in time for christmas tee hee. If it were actually Doomed in favor of the PS4 and BroBox 1020, i'd lose all hope for humanity & pixels.

Sad to say...Its true. You're right. Most of the gaming media has a double standard for Nintendo: "Let's criticize Nintendo for this but we won't criticize Sony/Microsoft!" and how the media doesn't even consider the Wii U a next gen console even though it obviously is.

I own a Wii U and 3DS. I do plan on getting a PS4 someday :D

Well the media is pretty dumb with a few exceptions. Even with developers ever since Sony threw up the big guns we've seen alot more kickstarter games put the PS4/Vita strech goal first, and non kickstarter games coming to PS4. (though it makes sense for developers to do both)

I think once more online multiplayer stuff hits nintendo will start to fare better.

WAT!

@DarkwingLz well is not just the media, other than Nintendo fanboys and Shin'en nobody ever refers to the Wii U as next gen, not even Nintendo itself

And sell a lot. Remember how the media thought the 3DS was doomed? Yeah...

Monolith's X is the biggest reason why the Wii U is a next gen console. Seriously...watch a trailer for that game and prepare to be impressed. Also...ummm... legit hardware specs don't mean that much... Just ask the 3DS and Vita. No offense to the Vita but its a good example that having amazing hardware doesn't mean amazing sales. While I do wish the Wii U had more power, it ultimately doesn't matter. Good games are good games. No matter the specs they were created on.

Agreed. People make it seem like the Wii U looks like crap. Honestly, I think to tell the difference between the three consoles, you will either have to have a trained eye, or look at the games side by side ( and probably still have a trained eye). IF you really care about that stuff, good for you. I don't. It's not like you Ps4/Xbone make the Wii U look like an Atari 2600.....

It's ironic but not for that reason. It's ironic because in highlighting PS4 content in that way @Sony_70 in inadvertently highlighted Wii U content. The way I see it, and I am surely biased, the Wii U is probably the best console for independent console and the second best platform after Steam. The PS4 isn't far behind and the XBOne has gone and pissed everyone off.

Again I do have a pro-Nintendo bias but I looked at that list of titles and thought "cool, Nintendo has that and that... where's Shovel Knight? Scram Kitty? Bit Trip? That next Shin'en title?"

Xbox One is doing pretty decent for indies with the ID@Xbox program. They won't be at Nintendo/Sony's level but they can do great as well. I'd personally put the PS4 in in front of the Wii U mostly due to indie friendly programs like Cross-buy/cross slave.

To be fair to the point I look at the Wii U and go where's Hotline Miami 2, where's Volume, Where's N++, Where's Cosmic Star Heroine. But looking at your post and the one i'm writing all I can say is the only true winner is PC gamers.

Thinking I should really change my name so not to look like a fanboy. hmm......

From what I can tell, PS4 and Wii U seem to be on par with each other. Wii U has a huge advantage with the Unity engine, and I've seen quite a few games list Wii U as a goal on Kickstarter but not PS4.

Ummmm.... Play Shin Megami Tensei IV for the 3DS then play Fire Emblem: Awakening for the 3DS. Imagine those two amazing games swapping gameplay concepts and suddenly the hype shoots up. I'm very excited for Fire Emblem X Shin Megami Tensei for Wii U.

Im thinking of picking up soul Hacker's while its on sale on the eshop. I will admit i'm more of a Persona/Etrian Odyessy dude when it comes to Atlus games, but I'd much Rather see a whole new Fire Emblem game than a cross over thing.

I think as far the core goes Nintendo shouldn't exactly copy what Sony and Microsoft are doing but build their library up on niche types of games and IP.

F-zero
Kid Icarus
Star Tropics
Sin and Punishment
Eternal Darkness
Punch Out
The Excite Series
Golden Sun
The Wars Series

It's its a bit sad Nintendo has a bunch or are close to alot of dev's who work on niche games and RPGS but don't utalize them. On the plus side if the Wii U is to mirror the 3DS early next year is when we should be seeing new IP in the form of Wii U eshop games.

WAT!

I know this might not be a huge indicator of sales, but we do seem to see more people saying that they have picked up a Wii U on the board. I think the worst is definitely over for the system. Whether they break through or not is another question.

As mentioned, they have so many cool games that would work well on the Wii u from the 3ds/older titles. Sad that with their resources we aren't seeing more- not that I need more, but to sell their system.
