I figured some people would want to speculate over this.

I suspect at least the Ubisoft data is quite accurate.

There are photos of monitors through the links.

Assassin’s Creed

Darksiders II
Dirt 3
Formula 1 All Stars
Game Party
Ghost Recon Online
Just Dance 4
Killer Freaks from Outer Space
Marvel Super Heroes
Metro: Last Light
Monsters Party
New Super Mario Brothers Mii
Ninja Gaiden 3
Pikmin
Rabbids Party Land
Raving Rabbids
Rayman Legends
Shield Pose
Splinter Cell 6
Sports Connection
Tekken
Your Shape 2013
Zombie

The list may be entirely speculative as retailers are not always privy to release information.

Nintendo has promised to detail the Wii U at E3 2012, although launch details will be announced at a later date.

End of thread?

Though banned, Go Nintendo should be appropriately credited as the original source. EDIT: Oh, I see it has been.

And as I said in the Wii U thread, the list is composed of games I wouldn't get for the Wii U, so nuts to that.

Shouldn't that be "New Super Mario Bros. Mii"?

List might be real, but probably a lot of placeholders set by BlockBusters. I'm pretty sure they will have more games to announce at E3. So far nothing too interesting from that list.

There are pictures of blockbusters computers showing the lists "legitimacy", though it may be photoshopped.

I'm well aware of where it's from, which is why I went through the link and looked at photos first, which I feel brings it far enough along to postable rumor.

We even have PSLS banned, but they did have a legit trailer for Trico.

Are you expecting a lot of 3rd party hardcore exclusives? Do those still exist? While this list includes NSMB and Pikmin, I can guarantee you Nintendo will have more than that at launch "window".

Well, let's see here:





I'm going to go with my original theory and say this is in fact Blockbuster's database as the pictures are different, and that as I wrote in the OP, the things related to Ubisoft are probably real while the rest is a bit more of a speculative collection.

I still think the Ubisoft stuff applies as news though.

As I've stated in my previous post, the list is probably made up of placeholders by blockbuster. I'm pretty sure we'll get launch details at E3 aside from pricing.

This being legitimate =/= this being accurate.

A lot of these titles could be pure speculation on Blockbuster's part, as has been mentioned maybe 5 times earlier.

FYI, Ubisoft said that they have six games in development for Wii U, and I think that I saw eight Ubisoft titles on that list. Also, no way is Nintendo crazy enough to release Shield Pose and a standalone retail title.

I understand that, but I personally think it is simply a fake. Even if it is instead speculation as you mentioned, then it is just as useless as a fake anyway.

I have to agree that it's a placeholder list, about as reliable as early retailer release dates.

Aliens: Colonial Marines - if Upad does indeed attach to the new zapper and works as a motion tracker I'll get it day one

Batman: Arkham City - Pick up if all DLC is included and detective mode is on the controller

Ghost Recon Online - maybe

Killer Freaks from Outer Space - maybe

Marvel Super Heroes - depends on what it is

New Super Mario Brothers Mii - day one

Splinter Cell 6 - maybe

Tekken - TTT2 or no sale

Not a great lineup but I could probably live with it if it turned out to be true.

For a long while many Vita digital $5-10 games were listed as full $40 retail games in store databases. So it's not completely out of left field.
