SnappyJon commented on Nintendo Confirms a Huge Range of eShop Discou...:

Well, I'm not knocking all of the deals, some of the VC deals are pretty nice, but, for example; Tomodachi Life is £3 cheaper, and Animal Crossing: New Leaf is only £2 more expensive for the actual physical copies of the games via Amazon UK.

That includes free delivery.

The price of these downloadable games is still way too expensive. Even when they are on special offer, they're not even competitive with the physical copies. :(

SnappyJon commented on Wii U Owners Finally Get The Nuketown 2025 Map...:

Weird.

Perhaps COD: BLOPS 2 has had an upturn in on-line players since the increase in Wii U owners due to MK8?

I guess all those new Wii U owners might be picking up (now cheap) older games and giving those games an increase in users that the game companies have noticed?

Has anyone who plays BLOPS 2 multi-player noticed an increase in players?

Meh.

Amazon UK have the Wii version listed at £14.25 (new) and the Gamecube version listed at about £15 (used: like new).

I can see why Capcom don't think it would sell on the Wii U. If you wanted it, you would already have it (and probably for much cheaper than this new HD version will be).

I'll buy it for the Wii U.

As long as:
> It's released roughly at the same time as the other versions.
> It has at least the same game functionality as the PS3/XBox 360 versions.
> All of the DLC is made available for it.

So... I probably wont be buying it then.

I guess adding some app like features wouldn't hurt, they could even advertise the 'app like features', but actually advertising it as an effective replacement for a modern day Tablet, even just for use within the home, would be a bad move.

Tablet computers are undergoing the same level of development life cycle as mobile phones. By the time the Wii U has reached the end of its life cycle, there will have been half a dozen tablet design revolutions.

In fact, by the time you've finished reading all these comments, Samsung will probably have announced the release of a new Galaxy Tab model. ;)

SnappyJon commented on Sony: PS4 Is "Welcoming Back" Wii Owners Who S...:

I will be buying a PS4 at some point (when it has enough games to justify the purchase), but...

"House cites data which suggests that 40 percent of PS4 owners didn't have a PlayStation Plus account previously, which could mean they were upgrading from the Wii".

... or, it could mean they were 'upgrading' from the XBox 360.

... or, it could mean they were 'upgrading' from the PS3 and had never bothered to get a PS Plus account before, but were so desperate for games to play on their PS4 that they were hoping the PS Plus account would give them access to a few more.

In fact, isn't the usual rhetoric about the Wii that, "only casual gamers, like little children, aunts and uncles, and grandparents bought them"?

So, now all of a sudden, the "casual" Wii owner is turning into a PS4 owner?

Hmmm.....

I purchased my Wii U because I wanted to play the latest Nintendo games.

I'm more than happy it came with the Gamepad, but the Gamepad wasn't the reason I purchased the Wii U. It does, however, give the Nintendo console an upfront unique feature that makes it stand apart from the other (admittedly more powerful) 'next gen' consoles.

I've found it to be a useful feature, and I wouldn't want to be without it now.

I'm really looking forward to seeing a more 'simmy' racing game on the Wii U. Even though I'm mostly terrible at racing games, I do enjoy watching the shiny racing cars zoom past me. :)

I hope the game isn't too downsized for the Wii U. Slightly Mad Studios has the opportunity to absolutely own the car racing genre on the Wii U with this title.

Fingers crossed.
