while that's true, i don't know what's so different that will have people flocking to these platforms in general. assassin's creed some more? call of duty and battlefield again? i guess mario mario and more mario works for nintendo, but it only works to a point. i'm not seeing the exciting new games for these platforms that are generating buzz. i guess there's petey. that's basically it though.
Oh I could see the holidays potentially disappointing. I'm just optimistic because I choose to be, not out of some diehard belief it will happen.
I think COD and AC will allow for a larger sense of breadth that what is actually there. You have a new Far Cry, a new Dragon Age, Shadows of Mordor etc. and then they can also buy the new COD and new AC afterwards. Perhaps it won't be enough though
i had smash bros. there for a moment, but i decided to go with my heart.
I suppose it does look to be one of Nintendo's most innovative games in a while I think? Or has there been Toad games in that vein before?
i think this will be the wii u's best year. 2015 has a bunch of niche games and unproven titles, ending with zelda in november. maybe they drop the price or bundle smash bros. at a certain point, but i don't see what can bring it to 100k/month when other platforms seen as having more worth are struggling to sell over 150k and 200k a month respectively.
Wii U does seem to be following Gamecube's sales trends relatively closely and from here that would suggest the second full year after launch is the highest selling year in its life which would correspond to 2014 for the Wii U. Pity that Bayonetta 2 is going to launch on such a small install base albeit I suppose it'll do much better than TW101 [not port-begging as Nintendo did good via Platinum]
