    • well at E3 they said that arkham city would be a launch title and im pretty sure they said the same about ghost recon online and darksiders 2 which means that this versions of the games will have additional stuff and extra content after all many developers have said that buying a Wii U game is like buying a blu ray over a normal DVD

    • Well… Goldeneye 007 just got released for XBOX360 and PS3, but no one is saying anything about this… what if a game is released later on an another console THAT’S NOT OUT YET? It’s not so bad after all; they’ll get more time to make sure the game works properly on Wii U, unlike all those games that are halfway finished with plenty of bugs ***cough*** fallout new vegas ***cough***.

      • exactly. I dont own a 360 or ps3, so i’m not interested in a game that isn’t coming to my system. But when WiiU comes around this will be picked up with the system. Brand new game to me!

  1. Are you kidding me Nin?? Not GTA V a release game….. Oh oh i have a very bad feeling for the WiiU now…. with GTA can you with the controller (look around you gyroscoop – shooting – map – weapons choose – car starting same as on the DSi with a tool or connect the cables – team online and see with the camera you face and talk to you friends in the big game.) So, i hope that Nintendo change it……

      • You never know;) And on the WiiU use a multicorre CPU. So, i think that on the HD console to come. As the another 2 well GTA and on Nin not??/ Strange than. Why is Nintendo to a come back for hardcore games bring it out later. Look on N64 and the Gamecube. Just the Wii is a good shooter console but, is now far away > WiiU come to the land shipping. But, i go for the WiiU now (1080p not > 1080i as the PS3 & Xbox360 > look at N64 (360 degrees with the controller). So i hope that next year i can in HD gaming just wait a year > 2012….far far away for the WiiU.

    • Sorry, trouble understanding, but I’m guessing you’re saying it’s a mistake to have Ninja Gaiden instead of GTA? By launch title they mean available at launch, so this will be one of a group of launch titles. If GTA is out in time for the launch then it may be there as well.

  2. Now this is awesome news. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again; my PS3 broke right before the holiday action. Luckily for me, Skyward Sword is right around the corner and the 3DS is getting plenty of love in November and December, so I’ll survive. I don’t feel like getting a new PS3, so this is excellent news for me. That makes Darksiders 2 and Ninja Gaiden 3 two of my first Wii U games on day 1. They announced Batman for the system, but they never said it was going to be a launch title; if it is, then that’ll be my third. I hope for at least 2 high profile games from Nintendo such as F-Zero and Metroid on day one or the following week. That would make it 4 games, and I’ll see what happens to Killer Freaks.

  3. Wait, I just thought of something. If they say this will be a launch title, then does that mean they already know at least the month in which the system will launch?

    • It’s actually the eighth 10 this game has gotten, and 6 more reviewers gave it a 9 or higher.

      Rich’s review is actually my favorite so far. Maybe it’s the fact I followed his Twitter feed when he was playing through it, or maybe it’s the fact I treated the reading of it like an event in itself by blocking the score until the last word was read, or maybe it’s just how well written this review is.

      Unless you’ve purchased Skyrim and are strapped for cash, you have no real excuse to not preorder this instant classic.
