This is basically why I am so confused about the PS4's Sales Figures.

Strange, isn't it? Honestly for all game consoles, it's surprising how much can be sold purely on potential.

Relative to my tastes, all 3 have droughts.

Also, to address the 3DS point, most Nintendo fans will have a 3DS by now. They should have had enough incentive to buy one this past year

Part of it is potential, since PS4 has much better exclusives than Microsoft and Nintendo's have been underwhelming thus far, part of it is that PS4 has slightly better graphics, and part of it was that they capitalized on Microsoft's botched reveal of Xbox One.

I agree that all three consoles are pretty much sucking gamewise, it's just the same crap we saw last gen.

If you look for "games", "rpg" and "wii u" in this site, you only get mass effect 3. This is quite depressing too.

Thank goodness the Wii U is backwards compatible - I've been using Xenoblade Chronicles and The Last Story to scratch my RPG itch.

The media has decided the PS4 is 'the winner'. They may say that 'it's too early to say', but they've bashed fans over the head with the Wii U drought and processor inferiority; Xbone's early policies, pricing, and inability to do 1080p, and that Sony have really nice TV ads with references to games that could be coming soon, even though they haven't been announced or even made in 10 years. I'm not a Microsoft fan, but I've noticed how negative the media has been to the big black VCR box, similarly to the way they've been to the Wii U.

Most consumers are really scared they're going to buy the 'loser' console, so they do what IGN and CVG tell them to do.

im personally pretty happy with the upcoming games, Bayonetta 2 being top of my list as i personally think Beyonetta 1 was the finest game of last generations consoles, also excited with the obvious X, MK8, SSMWiiU, those 4 games alone if played to death could very easy last me 6-8 months if not more, to which by that time id expect at least 2-3 titles announced from nintendo that we yet dont know about, sure there's not much coming out for the wii u, but what there is, is quality titles, and to boot i couldnt afford to buy more anyways.

Compared to the PS4 and Xbox One, I would argue that the Wii U has a rather paper thin Q1/2 2014 release schedule. I suppose Nintendo makes for that to a degree with VC releases, and I do believe the GBA games were purposely slotted for April to make up for the lack of titles this spring.

I still break out my Wii U for first party Nintendo games, and hey, Kyoto still makes the best of em all,......but overall, the Wii U has been, and will probably remain my secondary console for this generation, due to the lack of third party support.

Hype and love for PS? It's always a fact that people want state-of-
the-art high-quality systems that are not eight years old in technology

Get ready for the HYRULE SPIDERMAN! Coming to Wii U and 3DS this summer!

About 1080p, i find it funny because people used to call pc gamers graphic jerks when they talked about fps or resolutions, but now if you look on internet all that matters are graphics.

Also its funny because people say 1080p/60fps is going to be easy on ps4 and so fare there's 0 games like that (i think infamous is 1080p/30 fps isnt it) plus most of ps4 games have framerate problems, and imo fps > resolution.
Has anyone seen a framerate dip in a Nintendo game? i haven't.

If that was the case tgen tgose people should buy a PC. I spent $600 on parts and am not worried about not being able to play any games coming out. Plus the tech I bought is pretty old.

If you're asking specifically about WiiU games, I can't answer that. But Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon had some frame rate issues and Mario Kart Wii has a dramatic drop in framerate when playing local multiplayer.

The most people want the best support and hardware without the hassles that come with playing on the PC. Plus sony earned a lot of good will by how longyhr PS3 was supported and stuff like PS

WAT!

Talking about wii u, but i just remembered WW HD had some huge fps dips, mostly fighthing that huge octopus, plus the game was actual 1080p.

Neither DK, 3dworld, W101, Pikmin3 or Nintendoland(Nintendo games that i own) had a fps dip in my experience.

Now ontopic, yea aside mk8 the drought is pretty hard, but as a studen with half time job, my wallet is ok with that (but im not :( ), but as i said, there's nothing to play on ps4 and one atm either(except for Second Son).

With the Wii U games I have (some of them wrapped), plus eShop games like Scram Kitty, NES Remix 2 and Armillo, I don't feel any drought. I haven't even bought WWHD! And the GBA games will start rolling next week.

Add to that a 3DS with most of 2013's best games unopened, I have a lot to play that way too. That is not even counting my old PS3 and Wii.

I will comment in this thread, never being able to find it again.

WWHD is a gamecube game remade in HD so the fact it was 1080p wasn't that impressive worse was that it was 30fps.
Edit by worse I meant That I would have preferred 720p 60fps.

I agree that its not that tech impresive, but the fact that it looks better than other 1080p games is kinda amazing (imo), but well thats thanks to the art style (and lighthining).

WWHD was 30fps? Didn't the original have a higher frame rate? :O

As far as i know the only 30fps+ zelda game is a link between worlds (even with 3d activated i think)
