The wiiu is doomed ... Why fork out £50 for a game when u can get it £10 cheaper on rival systems ... Especially when it'll probably be an inferior port? ... the wiiu is gonna get disowned (by 3rd party devs) when the proper nextgen systems arrive ... History repeating itself. :(

I think there's allot of people out there that simply don't class the wiiu as a nextgen console ... why waste £2/300 on a system that's no better then what they've already got? ... There all keeping their cash for the 720 / PS4.

@ 77 so im in the minority when it comes 2 skyward sword but in the majority (of gamers who think wii motion controls are a pointless joke?) ... i will say this .... if nintendo dont give me the option 2 play games (which i pay 4) the way i want (classic controller enabled) they can stick the wiiu ... i dont like motion controls & will not have it rammed down my neck by nintendo (or the fanboys who believe its the best thing since sliced bread) /final post on this topic :)

@koto try playing wwe smackdown with a wii controller ... totally ruins the game ... the ps3 / 360 version was miles better ... thats just a quick example ... nuff said ... and the vast majority of multiplatform releases were better with a ps3 / 360 joypad rather then bolt-on gimmicky wii motion controls... wether my opinion is in the minority (when im on a nintendo fanboy website lol) who knows? .... but most people who own multiple consoles will agree with me everytime. :)

@zionich ... its only natural zelda is gonna sell by the truckload because the wii is soooo starved of decent software ... zelda has no competition on this platform ... it was the 1st game i bought this year ... like i said i didnt like the motion controls & wish they'd included a classic controller option .... i played upto the bird race section after the 1st dungeon ... way 2 fiddly 4 me. :(

@link79 i just find motion controls totally repetitive & pointless (plus... it ruins most games rather then improves em) ... thats why i prefer 2 buy 3rd party multi-platform titles on my 360 / PS3 .... if it wasnt for mariokart (with the classic controller) i wouldn't bother with nintendo.

SimonB79 commented on Wii Celebrates Its Fifth Anniversary in Europe:

i love nintendo but the wii is the worst console ive ever had ... the motion controller was a gimmick that didn't add anything 2 my enjoyment of videogames (this is MY OPINION ... fanboys need not apply) ... long live the joypad :)

@james ... no offence but nobody is gonna pay £20 for a nes game unless your stark raving mad ... as for adding 3D ... it still doesnt justify these prices ... nintendo are ripping us euro folk off. :( (no wonder people download these roms off the net 4 nowt)

SimonB79 commented on Iwata Unsure if Nintendo Will Sell Wii U At a ...:

imo .. nintendo should delay the wiiu until the 720 / PS4 launch ... go 4 all out power ... cause we dont want inferior ports ... (this coupled with a new mario game as a launch title will kick m&s right in the balls) ... id rather nintendo go the way of Sega then continue down this casual gamer route tbh

SimonB79 commented on Iwata Unsure if Nintendo Will Sell Wii U At a ...:

imo ... regardless of the path nintendo take the wiiu will not be anywhere near as successful as its predecessor because lightning doesn't strike twice ... ive got a nasty feeling the bigN is gonna get burned bigtime. :(

(allot of my friends will never buy another nintendo console again ... because lets face facts why spend £200+ on a machine that only gets used once every 6 months due 2 lame 3rd party support?)

its a double edged sword ... the cheaper the system the worse the spec ... the quicker it becomes obsolete (in the eyes of the hardcore)... if they make it expensive they loose money they won't get back cause the casual / nongamers dont spend the cash .... christ lol

@techwiz97 3rd party developers go where the money is ... ya average nongaming wii customer doesnt buy software ... this is the problem ... when the 720 / PS4 hit the shelves 3rd party devs will jump ship 2 the more powerful systems .... and history will repeat itself .... (the wiiu will collect dust like its older brother ... only used when mario & zelda make an appearance)
