Chrono_Cross commented on Activision Reveals Call Of Duty: Ghosts, Doesn...:

@HawkeyeWii

@Gameday brings up a good point. There's no reason to hate on this series. You complain about everyone "fighting" every time it's brought up, yet you turn around and consistently talk negatively (at every opportunity given). If you hate Call of Duty, stop talking about it.


I'd be surprised if Activision didn't release Ghosts on Wii U. Then again, I can see why.

Developers are afraid to walk away from the norm due to the gaming audience. It's not a developer's fault it wants to develop yet another zombie game because it sells well.

Video games will never grow up because grown up entertainment isn't something any gamer wants to engage in (there are a few exceptions). It's a lost cause and very disappointing at that.

Since when did Ubisoft profit from Assassin's Creed III? Do you have a link to sales of how many copies were sold? I'm doubting your claims.

It's not Ubisoft's fault it's contributing to a momentarily lost cause. I'm not declaring that third parties will never release games on Wii U, all I'm saying is that no smart publisher with big budget games are going to release them on Nintendo's Wii U in the next year.

Yeah, I'm sure that's why, but nothing lasts forever and if Nintendo truly had that mindset (it doesn't), you could expect it closing its foreign doors in the next few years, lol.

@Zellybeanie

The people who want BF4 are the people who already own a PC or last generation console. Taking these comments as an example, most of these users didn't even want the game to begin with which, as predictable as it is, isn't shocking and further proves that DiCE and EA made the best decision possible.

Ubisoft doesn't have mystical powers to see into the future so it had no other option but to gamble its few games at launch. Otherwise, no other third party is contributing to the Wii U and won't until it sells well.

(Prepare for low budget risks on Wii U, lol.)

I'm not too sure if Wii U outsold the Xbox 360 but even so, look at the slump Sony's PlayStation3 was in and now it's a success. Launches don't determine the outcome of consoles nor do past launches. Now, where Sony was sitting in 2007, it had a lot of third party support on the way and a wealth of first party titles on the way as well including an over abundance of new IPs.

There's no denying that. The question is, is that can Nintendo do the same? I'm not too optimistic about it due to its history of lacking in that aspect.

Nintendo will have to resort to handhelds-only if third parties are not supporting its consoles. Nintendo will only last so long after its audiences figure its same old franchises are starting to burn out rather quickly and with its new IPs selling below the horizon at every corner, it's only a matter of time.

@SethNintendo

Either way, it's not selling well as of now and won't for some time. The launch of Wii U was only the launch and has no key benefits for Nintendo anymore. Actually, Nintendo had to decrease the goal of the sales target not too long ago to help its share holders.

That's not good. Plus, there's no reason to buy one until the Holiday season unlike its current last generation competition and with a lack on interest from third parties, nothing will change substantially for the next generation console. Looks like it'll be yes another Nintendo console where only Nintendo's games will be worth a look.

@Exile20

The Wii U didn't sell at the beginning whatsoever. As of now, there's no demand for it. Plus, there's barely any third party support aside from Ubisoft. Which isn't enough to justify a purchase.

What happened in the past happened in the past. The past has no impact to the future success of any console on the market. I'm not sure why any of you are debating this, but it's a tad redundant.
