    1. It was meant for 3D though and It will still be better on the 3DS anyways.

      An example: RE:Revealations on 3DS is a better version then the “HD” remake on the WiiU.

      If you don’t have a 3DS….well then it’s time to get one and join the rest of the world.

      1. Actually you are kind of wrong with that, NES, SNES, N64, All these console made by Nintendo were made for GAMERS same with the Gamecube, Wii and the Wii U. You’d be a bias moron to think that Nintendo doesn’t deserve praise for making gaming a better place yet with people like EA who keep making the same games over and over again are getting most of it.

        You sir are either a moron or a zombified Micro$oft Nerd or Sony Drone.

      3. Soo i’m assuming you have played 3d world?. the wii u is’nt selling atm because nintendo underestimated the dificulty of developing in HD that’s why the console is’nt selling because of lack of games, it’s not hard to figure out.

      8. True but thats all in the pass. Nothing compared to what truly happening now. If ask me, all of them need fix their problems, forget the past and grow up. Meaning Sony needs to stop coping nintendo, nintendo needs to pull their heads out of there asses and start getting more 3rd party support and quit trying to get casual gamers and go for the full deal for all, and xbox needs to stop grabbing peoples money for cheap ass games and make their user fee disappear. That goes for trolls and haters too dissing one system over the others all because it doesn’t feel good to you. Which reminds me, have you guys even tried beating DKC Return??? I believe you won’t beat it so easily on mirror mode and I’m not talking about the 3DS version either. Point is, if you think Mario Galaxy 1 and 2 are the only nintendo hardcore games, you’re deadly mistaken, DKCR is another one of the few wii games that are for hardcore types. You guys, missing alot of them. I’ll be more than happy to name them too you.

    2. Thats probably one of the stupidest things i have heard. First of all WiiU is full of exclusive content in the end of this year.
      Sonic Lost World
      Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze
      Super Mario 3D World
      Wonderful 101
      The Legend Of Zelda WW HD
      etc.
      There is also multiplats like
      Call Of Duty Ghosts
      Splinter Cell Blacklist
      Rayman Legends
      etc.
      WiiU is supported like every other Nintendo home console since N64 if not better which is enough for me, but if you dont like WiiU i suggest you to stop whining and get another system. Ofcourse it could be that your life is so boring that you dont have anythin else to do than whine over an plastic box.

      1. Not impressed. Donkey Kong Country looks like the Wii version in HD. Super Mario 3D World looks the same as the 3DS game and it’s too easy. The Legend of Zelda: WW HD is just a remake. The third party support is pathetic.

All that is left for me is this wii u, and a collection of my fanboy day’s systems which are worth alot more now…like my N64, GBA original, game cube with GBA player all working condition, my wii, an SNES which is still in my previous home, Texas (where my brother is heading back too), and in the sae place, my NES.

    1. Tysamu, notice how THQ has closed down, Atari, Atlus is in trouble (through no fault of their own I might add) Hudson has been gone for a long time(bought up), EA and Activision are buying up everything they can to stay afloat. Basically what I am saying is these 3rd party companies can’t make money anymore. Their games aren’t selling enough copies on Microsoft and Sony’s consoles. Hence why Square Enix was not proud of the Tomb Raider reboot. But, look at Nintendo, they flourish and they can flourish BY THEMSELVES. Something Microsoft and Sony can’t do. The third parties are afraid they will go out of business. Basically, Nintendo IS putting their foot down. You can join Nintendo and stay afloat as a company and make video games for the Wii U/3DS, or you can suffer financially. Platinum Games is being funded by Nintendo right now, same with SEGA. Monolith Soft was bought by Nintendo. They joined Nintendo to save themselves. If these other 3rd party companies don’t, then they’ll simply go out of business just like the rest of’em. Nintendo has given them an ultimatum…just not directly. The only two companies I can see lasting on their own are EA and Activision, but even they can’t last forever. Something Nintendo can do.

        Oh really? I must have missed that buy out. I didn’t know that Monolith Soft was bought out by nintendo. Still, Altus needs either Sega or Nintendo to buy them if they hope to stay in business…I really don’t think xbox should have them if what they did to rareware’s games. They even ruined Conker’s multiplayer mode. That was a sad day for me because I loved the multiplayer mode of the first Conker’s BFD.

        Sega is owned by American Sammy which they got bought out by shortly after the Dreamcast. Hudson was bought and dismantled by Konami which is a shell of its former self.

        I might buy Castlevania on the 3DS, its an ok game and reminds me of the arcade version they put out in the 80s, but not rushing to anything right now. I have too many games and have my eye on Wonderful 101.
