I need three things from consoles: 1. The exact same gaming experience the game designers intended. 2. Pick up and play. 3. Extremely playable, tested and tuned experience. (If i'm going to invest $10000 worth of time, it doesn't matter if the game is $1 or $100 as long as it deliveres. )

I'ts cool that the do a proper adaptation to the wii u rather than a straight port. I'm looking forward to it and holding out for the wii u version. Awesome gameplay is worth a lot more than slightly better graphics.

@sdcazares1980 Consumers without options are more likely not to buy at all. Most PS4 and XBox gamers buyers allready know they like gaming, without nintendo portions of the market will just drain away over time especially if the Sony boss knows that people who play Candy Crush on iOS doesn't feel naturally compelled to buy a PS4 and get Killzone.

I think getting into health is a really smart and a good long-term strategy. Looking forward to playing mario kart while the nintendo elysium-device improves my health.

I do hope that nintendo continue to produce gaming platforms, since they're the most innovative company out there.

The Wii U will play out the same as the Wii for me. 1. Buy the console early. 2. Wait for games and get cool ones as soon as they get out. 3. Saturate collection with too much to play (I'm almost there with the wii u) 4. Suddenly years has passed and a new console is out. 5. Goto 1

Aggregated use in my family beats the original Wii, but that's due to the second screen and Netflix / Youtube.

Totally getting this. I don't use wii fit a lot, but I've been using it enough hours making it worthwhile anyway.

tovare commented on Review: Gradius (Wii U eShop / NES):

One benefit of this release is that the gamepad feels closer to an Arcade stick when user on a table giving an ok rate of fire. I never got around to buying one of the proper fighting sticks for the wii.

tovare commented on Review: Disney Infinity (Wii U):

I think it offers excellent value for money, alhough i would recommend either the villains or sidekick sets to play local split screen co-op through the adventures.

tovare commented on Talking Point: The Wii U May Be Playing Catch-...:

The ps4 and xbox one will be released and the games will be pretty much the same as the last two generations. The most interresting proposition is the xbox one, with the camera as default and a high emphasis on social and entertainment. It might become more popular than a wii u + wii u fit with balance board ... and that's one million girlfriends jumping around the living rooms around the globe.

I think the 3ds gift was awesome and totally exceptional. No expectations of a repeat. It would be cool if nintendo surprised us again, but not necessarily for a reason or restricted to some special group. i d on't regret getting the wii u early because me and my family has enjoyed it for hundreds of hours.

tovare commented on Say Hello To The Nintendo 2DS - A 3DS without 3D:

The younger segment doesn't have large enough pockets to fit a 3ds anyway, so why not. Nintendo goes a bit nuts occationally, but thats the price of creative awesomness :) Cool item which will find it's audience.

tovare commented on Talking Point: The Wii U's Limited Hard Drive ...:

The article recognizes that it isn't an issue now and users can get a hardrive if it becomes an issue in the future. Not mentioned in the article is that cost of storage and tech like ssd are reduced and become even more reliable over time. My synthesis would be that increasing storage at a later date and when needed is the best and most cost effective strategy.

tovare commented on Disney Infinity Has Reportedly Cost "Well Over...:

@rjejr The price of the starter pack is proably pretty close break even on distribution and manufacturing for Disney. The distribution chain takes a huge portion, then the added overhead for producing hardware and figures and more on global shipment. And I doubt the extraordinary store-exposure both online and in shops is free (altough I don't know the market segment well enough to gauge financial impact).

tovare commented on EA Outlines Its Reasons for Lack of Wii U Support:

I think it's great that they're not considering shoveling XBox 360 onto the WII U, the hardware is unique with the gamepad and they should be making games when it's appropriate to allocate enough game developers to make awesome games tuned to the platform.

XBox One and PS4 appear to be identical platforms in terms of controls, and even hardware capabilities. PC games has shown that the range of scaling can be pretty wide, but when the controls are different the game needs to be designed for the platform (Just like Civilization V cannot be exactly the same on PC and XBox).

"Vidyo is the company involved with Nintendo for Wii U Chat. While that experience exists in and of itself right now, it seems like there might be multiple expansions in the future. The followingg info comes from a Vidyo PDF.

Focus on social networking around gaming
Now: video chat in Miiverse
Next: video-powered game experiences

Chat today, conferencing soon
Now: point-to-point
Next: multi-party conferencing

Extending to mobile devices soon
Now: between Wii U consoles
Next: between Wii U and mobile devices

In-game video along with Wii U video chat connecting to other devices? Both sounds like great ways to expand the service. I'm more about games, but I'll take services as well! Thanks to all that sent this in."

Nintendo and Google is allready working toghether with street view, so why not integrate Wii U and google hangouts and video chat :-)
