  1. I know Ubisoft always support new hardware but they really seem to love the Wii U which is great for us.

      1. No, they’ll just wait for the next one. Besides, they have new IPs coming out next year, let’s get our hands on those, cause they look pretty good. Or has everyone already forgotten about Watchdogs. Dude uses phone to hack the world. Gamepad screen = phone screen, that’s all I’m saying =D

    1. Sickr, I don’t mean any offence but the comments section has turned into a complete gong show. It seems like every second article there is s huge fight, usually started by “Aeolus”. I really think you should ban him.

      1. Aeolus is a single person, but some people use his name to play-out being stupid, as he normally does himself.
        That said, there are a group of trolls, each with a unique personality.
        Casual Mum
        Aeolus
        Icy Dead People
        Von Scrotum
        Dorks who hate Nintendo, and feel like they are on a holy mission to discourage it’s fan’s, which is immature and fails horribly, but they keep coming, spewing their worthless comments.
        I almost automatically skip over their comments these days.

      1. Ubisoft have the same thinking that i do and that is that we nintendo fans have a big third party hunger and if we see even just 1 company backing them we are going to support that company, after all many third party have left genre on wiiu open for the taking and thats what i see ubisoft doing conquering those genres

      2. That is a good analysis bro!. I think you may be correct there. And if ubisoft start cracking 1M+ sales on wiiu other 3rd party devs will follow!

  2. That’s always good, but I’m getting the ZombiU bundle and I have Rayman on preorder, so I won’t be getting any more of their games any time soon.

    1. Those are their biggest games for the system, so I think they’ll be happy with that. 2 games per person, that’s fine by them. Heck, even 1 would be good enough. I’m lined up for AC3 myself, but the rest of my money has to go across the board. NG3:RE and Darksiders2 are 2 other games I’ve been pumped for for ages. This is gonna be a good gaming season =D

  3. Ubisoft is like a cross between Randy Pitchford and Warren Spector– showing their love and passion on Nintendo games. The French/Canadian company are on the road to become the #1 third party publisher/developer for Wii U titles!!!!

      1. There was a video chat with Warren Spector and someone asked that same question. He said he couldn’t do it because he now works for Disney and they wouldn’t approve it.

      2. Thats balls. He should at least give them permission to do it…let Irrational Games do it again, Bioshock Infinite looks awesome, but i want SHODAN :|

      3. I think thats why disney is buying so many companies so they can branch into the a bit older market maybe he will not do sistem shock 3 whit the disney brand but he could whit the marvel or lucas arts

  4. After 7 YEARS, Nintendo enters the HD era and acknowledges Internet exists and benefits consoles a lot.You guys are Slow.Wait for the XBOX ULTIMATE internet shop and services…will crush Nintendo again.

    XBOX ULTIMATE = AT LEAST 3X WII U’s GRAPHICAL AND PROCESSING POWER WITH LIP READING KINECT 2.0,10GB TOTAL RAM,250GB HDD AND THE BEST NETWORK FOR 299$.GIVE UP “little n” AND GO HAVE FUN WITH YOUR FRIEND SEGA,PUBLISHING GAMES FOR THE MASTERBOX ULTIMATE.

      1. By the way, if you love Xbox so much, why don’t you go play Halo 4? If you respond to me you confirm yourself a Nintendo fan.

    1. Yeh because specs always seem to dictate which console is successfull. Oh wait , No they don’t.

    2. Hahahaha, that one was kinda funny. 3X graphical power, 10GB Ram, 250GB HDD, and for $299. So it’s gonna be in a resolution that TVs can’t output, to prepare for the next generation of TVs before we can even get them, have so much ram it makes your laptop look like a waste of money, who uses a computer now-a-days anyhow, and a last generation harddrive. No, it will definitely be a solid state drive. Quit thinking so little, they are obviously making a 1T SSD. And since Microsoft loves their customers so much, it’s gonna be sold for only $199. A small $500 loss per console is nothing for Microsoft. They’ll do it for their customers. And free Xbox Live for, not just 1, but 2 years. This is totally going to happen and is in no way sarcastic at all. Nope, no sarcasm here. Microsoft is amazing and god-like and everything and I’m not being sarcastic. Did you pick up on all my sarcasm yet, cause I meant it :P Meep Meep *runs off for no reason whatsoever*

    1. Ubisoft has a ton of other shovelware titles too.

      A ton. I hated sifting through all those on the DS and Wii when I used to work at a game store back some years.

      But they also have some of the best franchises out there too. :)

  5. Man Ubisoft go hard in the paint I love it. If I had to give them a theme song I would prob pick kanyeze and Jay’s HAM.

  6. I’m so happy for Nintendo.Wish them luck with their network.

    Sure I work for Sony but I admire Nintendo.They’re our most strong and respected competitor.We’ll try our best to make a console that can compete with this unique machine.

    See?Not everyone here at Sony hates and copies Nintendo.Too bad…Sir Kaz Hirai.You see PS MOVE was his idea to destroy Nintendo.We (gamers)all knew it would fail though…

    1. PS MOVE … my idea?WTF!It was YOU JACK who came up with those sketches about how to reverse low PS3 sales.If there was one person at Sony who was AGAINST PS MOVE,THAT WAS ME.I always said we should invest on indie games and opening up new studios.

      Unfortunately,the investors got excited with PS MOVE and there was nobody to back me up.I knew it would be a failure.

      Stop spreading lies,Jack.Want me to cut down your salary?

  7. Wii U has 3rd party support on lock. I think that most if not all next gen games will be playable on Wii U if they just get a resolution cut.

    They definitely should make Watch Dogs for Wii U, it’s perfect for it.

  8. Sir Kaz,I’m sorry but…truth was not present on your comment.I NEVER had any intention to make a complete ripoff of any nintendo product.

    Invest on indie games and open new studios?Remember you not that day when you borrowed the smartphone of a friend,played a game and said “who the hell would pay 4 bucks for this shitware?I hate indie games.”I myself ALWAYS believed in the potential of indie and free to play games.You also said NO to small game studios.

    Need I also tell our Nintendo news friends who SECRETLY bought a Wii and a copy of Mario Galaxy?

  9. Did You hit your head or something?I ALWAYS wanted to take a different path than nintendo by supporting small game studios like “that game company”.

    That Wii and game were for my son.It was YOU WHO PLAYED MARIO GALAXY FOR 3 HOURS STRAIGHT AND SAID : “OH MY GAWD!THIS CONTROLLER IS TOO GOOD.WE SHOULD WORK ON SOMETHING SIMILAR TO STEAL NINTENDO HUGE INSTALL BASE”.

    After the PS MOVE failure,I became the CEO of Sony.This is how it all happened.

  10. Have I not told I admire Nintendo and their products?I DID play the game for all that time because IT WAS GREAT BECAUSE AND WAS MADE BY NINTENDO.You,on the other hand,always ENVIED THE GREAT MASTERPIECES OF SIR MIYAMOTO,always coming up with plans to surpass him.YOU INVENTED MOVE,NOT ME,YOU ASSHOLE.

  11. I’m tired of you.I’m tired of you,Nintendo fanboys.I’m tired of these stupid wii u sites.

    Jack Tretton,YOUR FIRED.JOIN THE MORONS OF THIS SITE AND GO SUCK IWATA’S DICK.

    MY POWERFUL SYSTEM ORBIS WILL LAUNCH NEXT YEAR AND YOU WILL ALL KNEEL BEFORE ME.JUST WAIT MWA HA HA HA HA…

  12. Sir,the Nintendo gamers have taught something important:GRAPHICS AND SPECS DON’T MAKE A SYSTEM AND ITS GAMES.EXPERIENCE AND GAMEPLAY DO.

    How I waited to say this:”STFU,MOTHERFUKKER”.STUPID PlaystationSuckers and XBots will feel and fear the power of NINTENDO-THE FEARLESS.

    Thanks,Nintendo gamers.I finally realized what gaming is all about.LONG LIVE NINTENDO.

  13. Sir Kaz Hirai…what an annoying troll.

    Wish you were the real jack tretton and became the ceo of sony.

  14. Nintendo should buy Ubisoft and make all there games Wii U exclusive.

    I can see all the ps/xbox fanboys faces.

  15. I love Ubisoft, The only thing I want them to do is give us Watch Dogs if you love Nintendo soooo much
