Outspoken Gears of War creator Cliff Bleszinski never shies away from the fact that he loves Nintendo products, and the Wii U is no exception. Speaking in an interview with Industry Gamers Bleszinski criticized the small minority of ‘hardcore gamers’ that are already prematurely dismissing the Wii U as another Dreamcast. He firmly believes that once the system is released these so-called-gamers will inevitably lap it up. What do you think?
“From what I’ve seen, it looks pretty cool. It seems like you can stream your game from your television directly to your [tablet] controller, so if you have irritable bowel syndrome, or a small bladder, you can still play it in the toilet. That’s great. But, you know, from what people are saying online, they’re like, ‘Oh, it’s just a DreamCast, whatever.’ But it’s like, ‘Dude, what’s old is new sometimes.’
“The Power Glove [back on NES] led to the Wii, right? The Virtual Boy led to the 3DS, right? A lot of these older technologies that you forget about are [the technological predecessors]. The Kinect is a sophisticated webcam, right? So I’m just dying to see it. It’s Nintendo. I’ll buy it. I know I’ll buy it. They’ll talk sh*t but they’ll buy it,” he added, referring to the skeptical gamers on message boards.
Crap, wasn’t gonna buy GOW3, but after a kick ass speech like that I may have to.
DAMN YOU CLIFFY B!
what a sexy xbox skin! and coolness with all of the wii u support!
thats no skin. that is an exlusive gears of war 3 xbox.
Whoa amazing loved the quote and very true!!
Hell, yeah! (2)
Microsoft: Haters gonna hate, but still gonna buy.
Sony: Nintendo’s for little kiddies.
I wonder which one seems more prefessional here…
clearly its microsoft. sony sucks. they’re posers and their products sucks.
I like all three PlayStations. PSP can god burn in a fire. Sony are just a bunch of immature pricks at times. I only have and XBox 360, but to be honest I find certaing games better on PS3 and others better on 360. But hey, I’m not going to argue with your opinions.
I wooden’t say thats tru but thay are posers but thay did poot up good graghics but Nintendo is finly coming out with a bang and thay will have better graghics
I hate it when people complain about Nintendo, I love Nintendo, grew up with it. What I hate more are the hypocrites that hate Sony much like other gamers hate Nintendo and then complain.
cliffy b is awesome. great quote!
Just cuz he said that. Ill buy GOW if it comes out for the U
Somebody finally gets it right.
Damn it. I hate Epic Games for running their mouths all the time and the first Gears was total crap (in my opinion), but I have to agree with him on this one. Even if I don’t like them, I may buy their games on Wii U is they decide to release games on it just to support them.
Is is it really necessary to censor the word “shit”? Like putting in that one “i” instead of an asterisk is really going to offend people.
Hey Fanboys sit down and shhhhh.
I got one for you ALL VIDEOGAME SYSTEMS ****. They are just used for wasting time. I own the two best gaming console this generation the Ps3 & 360. I use them BOTH all the time when i get a chance. Sorry nintendo I don’t see the Wii as a real gaming console. Anyways fanboyism is not cool any more You gamers think it is but its not. I think fanboys are kids who have no money and there mommy & daddy buy there games & systems and they try to act cool.
Ps3 + 360 = the best gaming experience ever period -FACT-
how can u say wii is not real gaming? It has a variety type of game genres where ps3 and 360 are all fps. News flash fps arent real great gamers. If they were like metroid prime first person adventure then those fps games might be good,but they arent. Plus all fps are all the same your just throwing money away.
I completely disagree when you say gaming is to waste time. To a lot of people, it’s a hobby, something that they deliberately spend time on. And you can’t say that an opinion is fact. There are very few exclusives for PS3 and Xbox360 that are worth my time. The Wii on the other hand, sports tons of great exclusives: Super Mario Galaxy, Donkey Kong Country Returns, Monster Hunter Tri, Super Paper Mario, etc. I completely understand if these games aren’t your style, but that doesn’t mean that the Wii isn’t a gaming console. I’m even willing to admit that the Wii is definitely not Nintendo’s best work. And for the record, I’m fine with fanboys, provided that they have valid arguments instead of just cussing everyone out.
How confused you are, my little child.
First of all, whether you enjoy the Wii or not doesn’t make it any less of a gaming system. The system has games, thus it is a gaming console.
Second, the Xbox is a sad excuse for video games.
Third, the Wii has plenty of good games. I’m not going to list them all, because others already did.
Fourth, the PC is the best gaming system this generation. Period.
Ironic, you claim to hate fanboys and believe games are a waste of time, but you immediately go to claim that the Xbox and PS are the best consoles ever. That would mean that you are taking the side of a fanboy and would play and spend time and money on something you say is a waste of it. I don’t think your post was very well-thought out.
“I own the two best gaming console this generation the Ps3 & 360”, “I don’t see the Wii as a real gaming console”, “Fanboys are retarded”.
Under your own logic, you have called yourself a retard. Congratulations.
@Hypocritical…lol good one!
Sounds just like one of those retarded xbox live fags, as soon as he said mommy and daddy. Dude you mad? Your exclusive gears creator praises our system.
what makes them better is the popularity vote in the west… if you have no internet the ps3 and xbox360 are useless… all of their games are trying to stand up on online muiltiplayer which i dont think a full priced game should… halo and cod ar 100% multiplayer games, the reward for beating the solo campaign is more multiplayer crap. nintendo has the right to full price their games because if you dont have internet you can play all (by all i mean like 90%) of their games to the fullest without playing an online match with a bunch of bitchy little kids trying to ‘quick scope’ on the same few levels over and over again.
Ok Xbox and Ps3 may focus on online multiplayer, but halo doesnt focus solely on online multiplayer, it has a solid single player experience akin to legend of Zelda. so you can shit on COD and other games, but leave the Chief alone. other than that i completely agree with you and i will always have something from nintendo and microsoft.
Aww isn’t that cute obvious troll thinks can bother us. Nice try and good luck next time. ^^
What I love about this comment is that you’re saying all fanboys are retards, but you’re saying “RARRRRR XBOX AND PLAYSTATION ARE THE BEST, NINTENDO SUCKS AND I’M SO NOT A FANBOY IN ANYWAY WHATSOEVER!” Better luck hiding your hypocracy next time.
ok you had me untill you said “Sorry nintendo I don’t see the Wii as a real gaming console” stfu your just like all the other bitch ass fanboys that allways say that; get the hell out!
I think you need to watch something, my child: http://healyhq.com/post/7369415890/niche-games-do-sell
More reason why I like microsoft better than sony.
shut up fanboy.
And why is that? Microsoft has nothing to do with this, this is one of their developers, in fact Epic Games isn’t even exclusive to Microsoft so in reality you’re just looking for another reason to troll
At least microsoft doesnt constantly rip off nintendo with everything so u shut up troll. You guys are the ones here on a page for nintendo fans and here you come trolling so if anything your trolling. You all are nothing but trolls.
Really? I’m the one trolling? I come on this site for Nintendo news but what I get are articles bashing other companies.
Yea other consoles bashing on nintendo. Nintendo even stated before they dont want a war. Sony and microsoft pick on them.
I’m pretty sure nobody here was trolling. Not Sal, not Jio.
hurray for the referee (no offence 6337)
O hell yea! If another director of a competing video game likes it then that says something, no bias like that other worker from Sony who bashed the Wii-U.
I love my XBOX 360 and Wii, and plan on getting a PS3 soon. I love all platforms because I cannot find Little Big Planet and God of War on XBOX and Wii. I can’t find Halo and Gears of War on PS3 and Wii. AND I can’t find the Legend of Zelda or Super Mario Galaxy on XBOX 360 and PS3. Each game console has exclusives to offer. I don’t see why people argue how Call of Duty is better on one or the other.
I totally agree. I own every platform dating back to the atari. I don’t hate, I shut up and enjoy. That’s what real gamers do. Experience it all!
I’m with you pair. Got them all, play them all, love them all, the same with hand helds.
360 and ps3 are 2 of the worst consoles of all time both ps2 and xbox1 are 1000x better. having said that i also feel gow is one of the worst games i have ever played. epic can make UT or UC3 wit no melee crap on Wii U or they can eat it.
I always did like Cliffy B. That is totally awesome that he sticks up for Nintendo. If he ever made a game on Wii U I would definitely get it.
Go cliffy!! Does this mean we’ll see a gears of war port for Wii U? If he’s such a fan, maybe the only reason it wasn’t on Wii was graphic performance issues. Now it’s possible
This I’ve Left all gaming communities and everything online gaming. Theres nothing but retarded fanboys, trolls and what not. I wish we can go back in time and tell Sony and Mircosoft whom ever started online first besides PC and tell them not to invent Live or PSN. Then the gaming world would be better off . then there would be only one gaming company Nintendeo. Then after the N64 there was the Gamecube I would have the Gamecube use bluray discs then Sony won’t be around. and microsoft would be doing PC exclusive games so there will be no xbox or the there would be no PSX …………….. whatever fuck this gaming generation N64 forever offline gaming forever online gaming is OVERRATED & BORING
That’s why I left gaming in 2005 until I bought a Wii in 2008. It looked like the industry was going nowhere and I didn’t want to be a part of it. Very boring, generic times.
I like when I see trolls on this site. Because that shows me they’re angry and looking up the wiiu cause they want it. :)
Reminds me of when you break up with an ex but you still go to their facebook page to see how the’re doing lol. Deep down they truly care. That or they’re insane. lol
This! Reminds me of when you break up with someone, but you still go to their facebook page to see how the’re doing lol. Deep down they truly care. That or they’re insane. lol
oops! double post!
Hell yea, tell it like it is cliffy b. , you speak absolute truth
Hmm they will always be haters. Cliff, maybe you could try bringing the Gears or War franchasise to the Nintendo Wii U, I’m willing to try out your games.
the only time i liked gears was when i was at a party and we had all of us join the same game and just kill everyone else with the chainsaw
Nintendo is waiting too long to release the Wii U (Still 1 year away). Atm Sony and Microsoft are looking at ways to one up Nintendo in the graphics and game play mechanics in order to tell the media that Nintendo is no match for them.
Good read, can’t wait for GOW. The source has a nice site layout too.
I am so buying Gears of War 3 now
Oh one more thing I buying Mr. Cliff Buttleszinski Gears of War 3 Used and saving five-ten dollars. I don’t care what the 360 fanboys think I don’t plan on taking Gears 3 online anyway. BUYING USED FTW FOREVER SCREW THE DEVELOPERS THEY DON’T NEED THE EXTRA MONEY AFTER THE FIRST SALE. SCREW THE ONLINE PASS
awkward post above :s
Looks like Nintendo might dominate the markets this time considering it will have exclusive games previously only for Xbox 360 on their console like Gears of War and maybe exclusive ModNation games will be available for it also. Not to mention Nintendo’s very own exclusive games like Mario, Zelda, and other popular Nintendo titles we are all familiar with supporting resolutions up to 1080p. Deciding over whether to buy an Xbox or PS3? Now you have the best of both worlds with the “best of all time”, Wii U! ;-)
