PGS_71 commented on Nintendo UK Executive Says Wii U Has Had "Quit...:

For anyone in the UK thinking of getting a Wii U, there are some great deals on the basic model at the moment across various internet retailers, Zavvi, Shopto, Base, Tesco. Basic model plus various games for between £160-£180. A premium model is not essential. And the Wii U is great.

There have been some games using the gamepad well, Deux Ex, Batman Arkham City. But for me off screen play is invaluable and I get far more gaming because of it. I know for a fact I wouldn't use any other console as much.

Nintendo should market the Wii U by highlighting its strengths - backwards compatibility, off screen play, exclusive games, unique gamepad functionality, free online gaming (yes free, really).

Wii U is a great console. Yes I'd love more 3rd party support but I have never regretted buying my Wii U and have enough games already for years to come.

I doesn't matter when this DLC was coded. I don't think anyone could argue that MK8 isn't good value, it has just as much content as the previous games.

The price for this DLC seems reasonable compared to other DLC. Buy it or don't, simple choice. Hopefully online play won't be affected when some players have the extra tracks and some don't. The new tracks must surely work online.

I hope the discounted price applies regardless of when you buy. I don't want to wait until May 15 to buy just to get the discount.

I would guess that it was already coded from the start, just like Freefall was on Ghosts. Why Activision took so long to release is the weird bit.

Just because its an old game and an old map, doesn't make it bad. So if you have the game and like it, why not play it. There's still more playing this online than Ghosts. You could probably pick the game up for £10 now, it is a very good game if you like COD. Better than Ghosts in my opinion, but Ghosts is better than people say it is.

Mahe is entitled to his opinion and we all know what it is. Yes that's right, he HATES the gamepad. He tells us this in every thread. No-one will change his view. I tend to skip past his comments personally.

Perhaps he will sell his Wii U as the gamepad is so terrible.

I'm disappointed I can't play it yet as my pre-order from The Hut hasn't arrived yet. Stupidly they didn't dispatch it until late on 29/05, I certainly won't be pre-ordering from them again. Hope it arrives tomorrow so that I can join in the fun!

As I said in a post on the reminder article, CoD Black Ops and MW3 online are both still working with 1000+ still playing. I'm hoping the different 'Wi-Fi Compatible" logo (they don't have the usual blue logo) mean they run on different servers!

Will have to wait and see, but fingers crossed!



PGS_71 commented on Reminder: Nintendo's Wi-Fi Service on Wii and ...:

I've just tried Mario Kart and got the discontinued message. But for those interested, both Call of Duty Black Ops and Modern Warfare 3 are both still running online.

Now maybe they will be switched off too but I notice that both games do not have the usual blue coloured "Nintendo Wi-Fi connection" logo on the box, they have a different black coloured "Wi-FI Compatible" logo instead. So maybe they run on different servers?

I've mostly moved on to Wii U COD but I do like to go back to Black Ops and MW3 now and again, so fingers crossed!
