wii_u_console_whiteNintendo UK’s James Honewell told Official Nintendo Magazine that there will be plenty of fantastic Wii U titles released in 2013. Honewell also said he’s certain that this year’s E3 will be a great show.

“As well as a strong launch line up, we’ve also got a really strong Q1. We’ve got a lot of fantastic titles – Monster Hunter, Ninja Gaiden, Sing Party, fantastic titles for everyone. And beyond – I’m sure E3 will be another great show and there will be lots of fantastic titles to come.”

    • Why? You could play both those games on the XBox 360 or PS3, which presume you already own one if not both of. Buy the Wii U for exclusive games (first-party and third-party) such as Mario, Zelda, Rayman Legends, Smash Bros., Sonic, Animal Crossing, Metroid, and ZombiU.

      • I quit my 360 4-5 years ago, as it have nothing to offer me… lol I am currently a pc gamer. I love to buy wii U mostly for pikmin, zelda, mario, exclusives… But If its not THAT promising, I will buy it in 2-3 years… if its promising and it brings titles into it, I will may consider it sooner, for this year. Its not about just starwars 1313 and watchdogs, I can buy them on my pc… I just want it to convince me.. lol

        Its to late for me to buy a ps3 at the end of its life.. I would only buy 3-4 games for it after all… so, no way, except if they give it to me free… 360 is collecting dust for 4-5 years now.

      • Why not on the Wii U?
        What’s the sense in steering people away from the Wii U for multiplatform games?
        Haters keep bitching about lack of third-party support for Nintendo but when the chance to change that comes around, all they do is say “Why not get it on PS360 instead?!”
        Steering people away from the console will only hurt the 3rd party devs in the end, because it will result in lack of funding, meaning they won’t have any motivation to make truly stand-out experiences on the console.
        If you want Nintendo to die like any other stereotypical hater then I guess that’s fine, but otherwise, stop telling people to steer towards Nintendo ONLY for their exclusives when the Wii U has an opportunity to turn things around for third-party offerings as well.

        Not every gamer who own PS3/360 played all multiplats or buy them all because then the sales would be a lot higher for those games.

      • How the fuck do you think the Wii U have missed the mark? You have absolutely no experience when it comes to video games. U mad because the Wii U have sold more than 2 million units in less than 2 months. The games that were available at launch are just a tip of the iceberg. When next month comes, there will be more… including Aliens: Colonial Marines, Rayman Legends, Project CARS, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Online, Pikmin 3, and The Wonderful 101.

    • What a load of BS. The vita screen hardly even looks better than the wiiu gamepad screen. That OLED screen is 540p QHD. Wiiu Gamepad is 480P. Hardly a difference worth caring about. Especially when the quality of graphics on the wiiu is much much much more advanced than the vita’s. For example you couldn’t run Mass effect 3 on a vita , so by default mass effect 3 running on the wiiu gamepad looks far better than eveything on the vita.

      Also , the Gamepad is only the secondary screen. The wiiu displays 1080p.

      I’ve played black ops declassified on vita. And it looks worse than a ps2 game.
      I’ve played uncharted , gravity rush and wipeout too and they look half as good as ps3.

      Unsurprisingly because it is a home console , the wiiu destroys the vita graphically.

        OLED > LCD…in nearly every aspect. I don’t even think there’s an argument in terms of visual quality and contrast.

        I’d take a 5 inch OLED display any day over a 6 inch, LCD piece of shit that barely looks better than what’s on the DS.

          It’s marginally better than the wiiu gamepad screen , not even a big enough difference to care about.

          The screen is better on the vita. But the graphics ARE NOT. all i’m saying. If anything because of the fidelity of wiiu games and the anti aliasing and all that , games look better on the gamepad than they do on the vita.

          That is an unfair comparison like you say, I’m sure Uncharted 3 being streamed to vita via remote play would look awesome.

          The gamepad is SUPRISINGLY clear and good looking though.

          • You haven’t compared shit side by side, you’re a fucking liar and you know it. Nobody with any good sense of eyesight will think the Vita’s screen is “not that impressive at all” in comparison. That’s a bullshit and you know it.

            NOBODY IS FUCKING TALKING ABOUT GRAPHICS. THE DISCUSSION IS THE SCREEN QUALITY; WHAT ARE YOU NOT FUCKING COMPREHENDING. THE CONSOLE IS PERFORMING THOSE GRAPHICS; NOT THE GAMEPAD. THEREFORE IT IS ABSOLUTELY POINTLESS TO BRING UP GRAPHICS IN A DISCUSSION OF SCREENS.

            I REPEAT; THE VITA’S SCREEN IS ALL AROUND BETTER IN QUALITY THAN THE WII U GAMEPAD, THAT IS A FACT.

                It doesn’t ‘barely’ look good, the OLED display is in a league of it’s own in comparison. In terms of blacks, contrast ratios, and pretty much everything else. Oh, and once again with this graphics nonsense. That isn’t holding shit back when it comes to the QUALITY OF THE DISPLAY. Wii U is a 480p, overly bright, fuzzy display and nothing more. It sucks, and it sucked on the numerous attempts I’ve used it in stores.

                I’m not even going to waste my time constantly beating this into your head, since you can only compare ….graphics, and not screen quality. It’s as if you’re absolutely fucking inept at keeping on topic for some reason.

Rendering in 3D is taxing, but a lot more taxing is a over exaggeration on your part and not true. There’s a guy that is a tech wizard that goes by the username of “3dude” on 3dsforums.com and he has debunked the over taxing 3D argument.
