He just read about Kojima saying no to Project Ogre on Wii U and decided from there, "Konami only plans limited support!", and then looked at the list of announced Activision games, didn't see Wii U anywhere, and said, "Activision isn't supporting Wii U at all!" Analysts are idiots.

When i get Black Ops 2, i will start with the single player. But i'm not sure that i will be able to stay away from the online before i've finished the single player hehe.

Throw in zombie modes and a few of the other extra's and I think the COD games are reasonably good value. I think the single player modes are good for 2 or 3 play throughs in a throwaway, blockbuster movie sort of way.

Not the biggest COD fan in the world but I'll be pleased if it comes to Wii U, whether I buy it or not.

If it is possible, then it will be like it is on Xbox 360 and older PC game (and maybe some newer PC games as well). You can install the full game, but you need the disc inserted when booting the game.

Yeah i mean like MS, sometime i install them because my dvd player make too much noise and some games load better.

No man (or woman) can resist jumping to online mode when they have a chance to. Haha

Do you plan on getting Black Ops 2 for Wii U for for another console/PC?

Yeah I should have rephrased what I was said. I meant to say that most people don't buy CoD for it's single player campaign.

If they do it like MS and it does allow faster load times then I wouldn't mind too much.

They can just have it dial up and check to see if you have the game registered as a purchase. This seems pretty simple (albeit annoying to some degree potentially for some* users).


* this includes me, but I'm willing to bite the bullet this time, as long as the dialup isn't required if you use the physical disc

For a moment that looked like "touching-related videos".

The whole "bookmark folder" deal made it even more real. (and don't get me started on "haptics")

Then I went back and paid close attention to what you said.

Could you expand a bit more on it? Do you mean like check if you've registered the title with Club Nintendo or something along those lines? I'm not too sure I follow.

My "bookmark folder" is called "google". I pretty much just do a search every time and hope really hard. Heck, I don't even have links to past posts here on GAF (though I did start doing that "#ABCDE: Nintendo goes third party, announces Wii U is now just a multiplatform controller" thread history stuff).

Time for another blast from the past!!!

This week in 2006, a survey about console allegiance came out. I don't read too much into it, but as someone who loves B.S. stats, I always get a kick out of this kind of stuff.





What your next generation system preference says about you
http://www.siliconera.com/2006/05/01...you/#more-1218

And the press release:

Press Release
SONY, MICROSOFT AND NINTENDO ARE BATTLING OVER “THE UNDECIDEDS”

IGN SURVEY SHOWS 14% UNSURE ABOUT NEXT-GEN VIDEOGAME CONSOLE PURCHASE

Console Makers Must Court PlayStation 2-Owner Fans of “Lost” who Listen to Gorillaz on their MP3 Players and Eat at Taco Bell, According to IGN

May 1, 2006 - Brisbane, Calif. - In the race to be the leading next-generation console, any of the three manufacturers can take the prize, according to results of a recent study by IGN Entertainment’s GamerMetrics and IGN Research Solutions. The “IGN Research: Next-Gen Console Allegiance” survey shows that while 36% of the IGN.com audience claims loyalty to the PlayStation 3, the spread is narrow enough for the undecided 14% to make the critical difference. 28% say they have the strongest allegiance to the Xbox 360, while 22% pledge their faithfulness to the Nintendo Wii. IGN’s survey also profiled and analyzed the undecided gamer by lifestyle choices, media consumption habits, favorite brands and game genre preferences to understand what Microsoft, Nintendo and Sony need to consider as they strategize to emerge as the victor.

One noteworthy quality about the undecided gamers is the fact that they prefer role-playing games (RPGs), while the favorite genre of the entire survey sample is Action. This, coupled with the fact that 79% currently own a PlayStation 2 - traditionally considered the top console for players of RPGs - might give Sony the edge over their competitors.

Favorite brands of the undecided gamers include Google, Apple, Coke, Taco Bell, Target and Dell. The group’s affinity for youth-focused brands that offer quality products for reasonable prices might favor Nintendo’s next-gen approach.

Gamers undecided about their next-gen purchases seem to spend more time and money consuming their entertainment at home. More have sizable DVD collections than go out to the movies (67% own at least 20 DVDs, while only 50% went to see a
movie within the 30 days before taking the survey), and many (47%) plan to buy an HDTV. They won’t be using it to watch MTV, however. Only 17% watch “Punk’d,” while an even smaller 10% watch “The Real World.” Undecided gamers will
instead be watching their choice television drama, “Lost,” as will those allied with the Xbox 360, a positive sign for Microsoft. PlayStation 3 enthusiasts by and large prefer “24,” while Nintendo Wii devotees favor “Smallville.”

Other findings about the undecided gamer include:
. 70% own a handheld gaming device (their preferred handheld being the PSP)
. 90% regularly download music from the internet; 60% own MP3 players
. Favorite band is Gorillaz (which is true also for those most excited about
the Nintendo Wii. Xbox 360 fans prefer Nirvana, while those awaiting the
PlayStation 3 most enjoy Eminem.)

IGN’s research suggests that Microsoft must lose its reputation as being first and foremost for the First-Person Shooter crowd to appeal to a broader market. Nintendo must appeal to the consumer who can not afford to spend close to $500 on a new console and Sony must reach out to their loyalists by promoting backwards capability with the PlayStation 2 and offering functionality with the PSP.

no one knows if it's going to come out eventually, but as of right now, it's not coming at launch or for a while, unless Nintendo surprises at E3 with the announcement and capcom lied.

Honestly?

It wouldn't surprise me too much, so it wouldn't get me too aggravated. I still see anemic third-party support, especially from the West.
The long-embittered part of me would just say, "fine. Let's see how that works-out for 'em. {*Ganon laugh*:} Heh heh heh.."

Well Capcom says many things. If they are indeed not working on a version of RE 6 for Wii U, which is highly unlikely IMO, then the company is run by a bunch of idiots. Missing out on launch is one of the dumbest things they can do.

The NDA must be dead by then. When the console is revealed - even without exact date and price - then there is no point in NDA'ing that shit.

But then again it's Nintendo *sigh*, right?

Bloober Team appeared in several categories on mapyourshow, like Action, Adventure, Arcade, Shooter.

The polish studio has some games on WiiWare and DsiWare like Last Flight, Paper Wars, Bloons, Double Bloob, and their most recent title is the Lost-Viking inspired A-men for PS Vita.

Let's hope they're developing a good project for the Wii U eShop :)

I think there's other new additions on other categories as well but don't have time to check if they already have been reported here.

The only recent addition (apart from Bloober Team of course) to Wii U categories is that of ROYAL ELECTRONICS INC under the categories Compilations, Distributor, Hardware, Localization and Retail.

Also, Game Quest was added to Retail.

Not working on isn't the same as saying its never happening. There's a good possibility that it could show up within a year or so after launch with added incentives like having it be sort of a GOTY edition.

But if not much is announced at e3, well Nintendo screwed the pooch in convincing 3rd parties over the past year and a half, which isn't a good thing.

Agree 110%.

This is perhaps one of my top third-party wishes for the upcoming generation: that jRPG developers get a sense of comfort with the Wii U to the point where it becomes their platform of choice. In terms of easing into HD development, limiting increases in development costs, a platform that'll be friendly to Japanese aesthetics/space considerations/features/etc.. I'm hoping that the Wii U can attract its share of these titles.

Even if we get one Xenoblade or Symphonia-level title per year, I'd personally be very, very happy. A title of that nature can keep me busy for months on-end. :)

Pretty much. If they want to skip the Nintendo platform again, I'm not going to financially reward them for that behaviour. They can go and.. {*grumble, grumble!*}

It's not mysterious if it's really there. I think if there was no NDA in place that we would have seen some announcements for the Wii U unless third party don't want their games on the platform.

Yup. We didn't get news regarding any other third party games after E3 that I can remember. Just a bunch of rumors, speculations, and hints.

Given that it is now over half a year later and that this million seller number is from one country only, it is certainly possible. We'd need to see, for example, a list of "half-million sellers" in the US, which would probably be a lot closer to that 200 mark.

I can say this: Jokeropia did not get his number from that site. The numbers they have aren't even close to what he's providing.

edit: I should note that the overall software sales in the US of the Wii is in the same ballpark as the Xbox 360's and is likely decently higher worldwide overall. We did some calculation on this earlier during a slow night, and I'll try to find it.

Given the extra year, claiming "'about' 200" titles should be close enough.

Thanks, JJConrad. I have to wonder why so many people misread that comment. If I only meant Wii, I wouldn't say "Nintendo platforms".

Depends how you mean, I have not played ANY of my PS3 games online, and I have a few that have online modes, Uncharted 2 is the only one, and that's for 5mins to get the 2 online trophies that existed, nothing more.

Capcom said there were no plans or something.

But, as a result of the NDA. I'm not going to judge the third party lineup till post E3.

I agree. Its Nintendo games + whatever comes from 3rd partys. If they ignore Nintendo again then they can go fart in elevators while wearing a reggie costume.

I was talking about CoD and people who play CoD games in general. I don't really play anything else online.

I know Nintendo's is at the start of the second day. Microsoft and Sony are on the first day. Any other big studios showing on the first day?
