Mutant Mudds Creator Thinks The Wii U Will Be The Gamecube Of This Hardware Generation


Jools Watsham, the creator of Mutant Mudds Deluxe for Wii U, has said on Twitter that he believes that Nintendo’s struggling Wii U console will be the Gamecube of this hardware generation. The console which had some absolutely tremendous games, but simply failed to entice consumers away from the competition.

“The Wii U will be the GameCube of this hardware generation. The platform that had some truly great games, but somehow lost the console war.”

      1. A console generation lasts for about 5-7 years. By the end of the gen a console costs less than half of what it did originally. I you don’t have that kind of money then I suggest getting a new hobby. ;(

  1. I think he hit the nail squarely on the head. My prediction is this console cycle will mirror the GameCube, PS2, Xbox era of consoles.

      1. Exactly they are treating it like a failed attempted just because it finished last.Nobody is going to treat like a failure the console that comes third on sales this generation(either ps3 or 360).

        1. Exaclty, I WOULD LOVE ANOTHER GAME CUBE!! give me 2 metroid prime games at the calibre of the game cube ones, and give me 2 awesome 3d zelda games, give me another fzero gx in hd, give me another eternal darkness,a metal gear solid twin snakes, a starfox adventures,a starfox traditional game,a mario kart double dash like game,a smash bros melee, ETC seriously the cube has GREAT GAMES!! if we the wii u sells around 30 million, which the cube sold around 25 million, give or take, i think 30 million wii u units is good enough, while not amazing amounts compared to this gone generation, still with 30 or so million, third parties would give us allot more support then we are getting right now! the quality of the cube games was amazing, this is what i want for wii u , and for sure it will come soon, pikmin 3, is already a great start!

          I hate when people say being another game cube like its a bad thing, it is not, in fact it is a good thing, better then having a console which tanks completely!

    1. gc sold 22m
      ps2 sold 157m
      nintendo made more money off gamecube than sony made on playstation 2.
      It sure is a shame people think gc was a failure.

  2. I agree. I do think that Wii U sales will go up but I think we’re gonna see a complete repeat of Gamecube/PS2/Xbox era. Nintendo in last, Microsoft in second, and Sony owning the competition.

  3. Fine by me. Im not buying it so it can “win”, whatever that means. I just want amazing games. Pikmin 3 and Wonderful 101 are a damn good start.

  4. Whatever happens, it’s Nintendo’s fault/achievement. We shouldnt be so personal about sales. At the very least, the WiiU will keep us busy with Indies :P

  5. I disagree. all consoles will be gamecubes people is excited this Gen but not enough to see all consoles above 80 millions + of this Gen.

  6. Nintendo has announced a 2DS. Nintendo tree house of America needs to be reshuffled. Really 2DS!? R&D if the 3DS is making you money, money hat some of it towards grant theft auto V, better still Destiny. You guys wanted me to criticize, well here I go. The WiiU has the potential to win this generation easily and convincingly. Nintendo has to just shell up some money for the necessary third party software plus advertising, and re-release some old games redone in HD at nintendo select prices :).

  7. This asshole believes in console wars? I just want to enjoy my games, I don’t give a crap about the competence’s sales.

  8. The thing is.

    We bought wii when it offerts us a new way of playing games and it exceeded my and so many mores expectations.

    Wii went gadget mad and made you buy a new plastic piece to put your motes in every other game.

    I love the motes. I love how you can play games with that style. Aiming gets a new meaning.

    I’m a computer player mostly but after recently buying BO2 on the wii u I gotta say the way to play it is similarer to the computer rather than the stick on other controls.

    Then again. Now we aren’t playing at the same conditions on the wii u. And I just can’t help to think about it. Sure the mote is better in some situations and the pro controller/game pad is in others. So now we must choose what style to play with.

    I like this idea even if it gets on my head sometimes.

    So now let’s take nsmbu where you can’t use the nun chuck to play with. (I know not many ppl did in nsmbw but I did and I loved it) run and shoot at the same time is awesome for speed runs.

    Epic Mickey was wii exclusive and hit the motes use on the spot! Then they make the sequel and they take away this way of steering your character on the wii u but keeps it on the wii version.

    When wii U was released I didn’t feel the need to buy it one bit. Kinda funny when I drove 17 miles to queue 4hours (to not get one) for the wii.

    Nintendo needs to put their shoes down and either stick with the way of controlling your characters in game as others do or they should make sure the wii mote is an option in all the games that its possible.

    They can’t go randomly picking out games that will have support for the mote+nunchuck.

    I saw the wii U as another gadget when it came out. Not as a new console. And I’m fed up of gadgets. All I want is a good game playable in the way it’s was meant to be.

    1. Lack of big titties? Is that what the Wii U needs? Tits? These troll comments are getting worse and worse by the minute. Who moderates this fuckin website for fucks sake? A faggot Sony fagboy? I bet. Letting people say the Wii U needs big titties to win the console war may be the sexiest but most unnecessary troll comment in recent memory.

  9. I don’t know what’s more hilarious. The fact they’re judging Wii U’s success before the competition even hit the damn market or the fact they said this day before Nintendo made a storm drive of announcements, most notable being that the Wii U will get a price cut.

  10. Thanks for the auspicious writeup. It in truth was once
    a entertainment account it. Look complex to more delivered
    agreeable from you! However, how could we keep up a correspondence?
