We finally got the launch day lists for the Xbox One and PS4 and How they compare to the WIi U.

PS4
DC Universe Online
Drive Club
Killzone Shadowfall
Knack
The Playroom
Resogun
Tiny Brians
War Thunder

Xbox One
Crimson Dragon
Dead Rising 3
Fighter Within
Forza Motorsport 5
Killer Instinct
Lococycle
Peggle 2
Powerstar Golf
Ryse: Son of Rome
Zoo Tycoon

I think if Nintendo tried more cross platform games it would help the Wii U, All of the stuff they showed yesterday has me wanting both a Vita and a PS4 to compliment each other.

WAT!

Zoo Tycoon. Nice.

None of this excites me enough to justify the prices. But PS4 looks a WHOLE lot better I think. I'll just wait for that PS4/Vita bundle next year.

@Sjored

Yeah Zoo Tycoon looks awesome. It seems to be a mix of the older games with the more first/third person kinectimals/Viva Pinita giving multiple ways to play for everyone in the family. (Adults like the sim parts while kids like to run around. You can also play four person co-op.

PlayStation 4 is on track to be the largest PlayStation launch in history, numbers are already “way over and above and beyond” the PS2 and PS3’s launch day deposits.

I got a feeling the PS4 will do well,

All this forum is now is the Sony and Microsoft fan arguing with Nintendo fans. Can't we all get along and hope for the best from our favorite systems?

Nintendo will release a Micro-Console as a companion device to the NX and next Handheld Console. (looks like I was wrong if this latest rumor is true)

@PokeTune why are all your post so negitive...i thought all ponys are nice Untitled

Well with Nintendo at the current moment there's not much positive stuff to talk about. Also that post with ''NEVER'' was mostly just harmless fun

But, it's been apparent for two generations now, that Nintendo no longer actively considers Sony and Microsoft it's competition. Otherwise, it's hardware would be comparable. So, it doesn't really matter, as Nintendo does not care what these two companies release. You may care. I may care. Nintendo doesn't care. If they did care, they would have released a machine comparable to the PS4, and Xbone. They have the money. And, everyone in the industry knew that Sony, and Microsoft, were going to AMD for their chips. Nintendo could have done the same. But, they didn't.

They realized a long time ago, that their first party games sell systems. End of story.

@DefHalan I agree the more consoles on the market in "competition" the more favorable they have to get to the consumer. Which is always good on our wallets. But I will say in the spirit of good debate I like taking friendly jabs at my Nintendo friends.

It just gets tiring watching a good conversation turn into the same posts over and over about how well or bad Nintendo is doing and people using their opinions as facts

I agree. I feel this is getting really tiresome.

Nonsense.. they realized a long time ago even if they came up with the most powerful machine ever.. and fixed all the problems everyone has with their systems.. they would never win.. because everybody (Starting with third parties) would just come up with another excuse not to make games for or buy a Nintendo System.. as thus Nintendo no longer cares.. Every body blames Nintendo for everything.. the fact is.. even when they tried to compete.. truly tried.. everyone left them high and dry.. and told them basically save yourselves.. they did.. and everyone complained again about other issues.. so they can never actually win period.. it does not make sense if you look at it that way that they should try to compete with Sony and Microsoft.. unless the price is right.. .. it just does not make sense..

Well we can't ignore that they aren't doing well or how the other consoles factor into the mix.

While I personally think the PS4 is the best deal for your Buck this fall Nintendo has a lot going for it. I'm mostly interested in what's exactly coming in the Wind Waker bundle that's rumored to be on the way.

Cool episoide of RFN with interviews of eshop developers.

But rallydefault the ps4 has 1M+ preorders or 25% of wii u's install base. Don't forget multiplatforms although not exclusives (obviously) still move consoles & drum up enthusiasm

But why do I care, man? I don't give a flying squirrel that the PS4 has 1million+ preorders. Great. Fantastic. I'm supposed to buy one just because lots of other people are? Ugh... this is the problem with the social networking age we live in. Peer pressure has spread even to fictitious environments. The PS4 AND Xbone launch window games don't appeal to me, and the multiplatform games they are both getting will be better on PC. Activision or Infinity Ward or whoever just admitted that the PC version of CoD: Ghosts WILL be graphically superior to that of the next-gen consoles' versions. That didn't take too long, did it?

I bought a Nintendo console because it's the only one that will consistently give me excellent games I can't find anywhere else AND a control method that can't be reproduced consistently and by default anywhere else. Even Kinect is made for PCs, if you didn't know. The Wii U gamepad is not. For Sony's sake I will say that Knack looks interesting and I hope it works out, but aside from that ... meh. Killzone? DriveClub? I hope the PS4 launch window gets as much criticism (or more) as the Wii U did.

It will do a lot better than last holiday season and I think it will truly take off next spring and into next summer.

Will the Wii u take off? Nintendo thinks so because of Mario 3D world and DKC Tropical freeze! But I am not entirely sure. There's always the chance that DKC fails because of DKC Returns 3D (to short released after each other), and that people have a Mario fatigue (New super mario bros u wasn't a gigantic succes, but that may also be because it was released short after New super mario bros 2). We have to wait and see! Personally I am on the edge: Buying it now, or waiting for a price cut or till it takes off. And if it doesn't take off, just waiting for the next device. I have to overthink it a bit further!
