that's because the "Predecessor." Was a figurehead in order to give Xbone a scapegoat, all the blame would go onto him and not to the entire company so Microsoft can say. "It's okay everyone, the bad man is gone, we're the good guys!"

In other words, he was hired in order to take the bullet.

Sorry brother but lets be honest after Wii U gets out MH3, Mario kart, Smash Brothers, Metroid, and Zelda you guys are gonna be in a HUGE drought.
User avatar #135 to #92 - mutzaki ONLINE (04/08/2014) [-]
Eh, we'll always have the games no one but Wii U owners find out about. We'll have a bit of "mainstream 3rd party releases", like Watchdogs, and we'll have the many Nintendo exclusive series you didn't even mention.
Let's face it, Xbone and PS4 aren't swimming in good games either, and they have started off pretty much as slowly as the Wii U. We're all in the same boat of lack of games, currently.
#166 to #135 - iworkforlaughs (04/12/2014) [-]
You've guys have been out for 2years and have maybe 8 GREAT games, we've been out for 6months and have the same number. No hate to those who have a wii, but nintendo really did a disservice to you guys with their lack of GAMES.
User avatar #167 to #166 - mutzaki ONLINE (04/12/2014) [-]
No, the Wii U came out almost exactly a year before the competition, so it's only been out for a year and about 4 months. But what exactly are the great games that are out on Xbone and PS4?
#168 to #167 - iworkforlaughs (04/13/2014) [-]
wow I just checked and you're right it came out 11/18/12, I can admit when I'm wrong sir. Dead rising, Titanfall, Infamous second son, Metal Gear, Elder scrolls online, Destiny, Watch Dogs, just to name most. Honestly man the wii doesn't stand a chance this go round, the gimmick has worn off, and Nintendo can't go toe to toe with Xbox and sonys libraries. You got mario, zelda, a half ass pokemon game, metroid, and average games that some love but most just like.
User avatar #169 to #168 - mutzaki ONLINE (04/13/2014) [-]
Sorry for the wall of text.

Okay, that's Dead Rising 3 and Titanfall that are currently exclusively out for Xbone, and Infamous: Second Son that's exclusive for PS4. Metal Gear is out for both.
Future game releases out of those are Elder Scrolls Online and Destiny, so then I'll throw in MK8 and Super Smash Bros. to cancel them out.
Watch Dogs is coming to the Wii U as well, so that one doesn't count. If you have the time and feel like it, you can expand the list for all the noteworthy games.

Wii U more than matches that list, as you only mentioned 3 games for Xbone and 2 for PS4.
So, again, unless you can produce 50 % of the Wii U's current top library, you kind of have to admit that we're all in the same boat, games-wise. And please don't just post any old games, and only mention the top seller games. Otherwise, I could just counter with Game & Wario or whatever, and we'd just be listing random ones.

And, you know, you saying that Nintendo's library is bad and outdated is probably what makes you an owner of Xbone or PS4, rather than a Wii U. Meanwhile, I think that the "pop gaming" culture that's shared between Sony, Microsoft and largely PC, is just way too homogenous. Yes, Nintendo has a lot of very old continued series, but at least our series are hugely different from one another. Meanwhile, the games you get are always the same format, with some kind of mix between zombies, stealth, parkour, shooting, mass raiding, crafting, a form of "Eagle Vision" from AC, etc.
This is why I have the opinion that the games out on Nintendo platforms are better and much more diverse.

So, yes, the Wii U has had poor sales and a poor influx of top selling games, AND we've had atrocious backing of 3rd party devs, but your opinions on Nintendo's games are irrelevant, and fact is that the other two consoles are lacking just as much of top selling games as the Wii U was in its first 4 months.
#170 to #169 - iworkforlaughs (04/14/2014) [-]
Dude what games did the wii u come out with of note other than pikmin in the first 4months??? Good come backs though. As for the future release, wii u had a year head start, by the time we're 8months into this generation we'll have more than the wii u has NOW. Also watchdogs hasn't been CONFIRMED for the wii u yet, they're keeping options open, but it may or may not happen.
User avatar #171 to #170 - mutzaki ONLINE (04/14/2014) [-]
No, Watchdogs is confirmed, and it was only delayed for the Wii U, thanks to Ubisoft needing Nintendo staff to help out in some other areas. At least that's what I heard.

Other than Pikmin, we got ZombiU, Nintendoland, New Super Mario Bros. 2, and Monster Hunter 3. If you care, we also got several 3rd party games like Mass Effect 3, Tekken Tag Tournament 2, Darksiders 2, Batman: Arkham City Armoured Edition, Cod 2, Assassin's Creed 3, 007 Legends, Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge.
#172 to #171 - iworkforlaughs (04/14/2014) [-]
so you got five games and some others that we already had for a year or more.
www.polygon.com/2014/4/13/5610848/watch-dogs-wii-u-release-date-fall-2014-ubisoft
www.digitaltrends.com/gaming/watch-dogs-coming-wii-u-fall/#!D1sR3
As for watchdogs, their waiting to see if there's going to be a big enough install base in the wii u to even want waste cash putting it out. It's not even being done by the montreal studio.
User avatar #173 to #172 - mutzaki ONLINE (04/14/2014) [-]
Five is more than three and two. It's actually the combined number.
And, not quite--we got Mass Effect about 9 months later, we got Tekken a couple of months after, Darksiders on par with the Japan release for 360/PS3, CoD on par with the normal release, AC 3 on par with the PC release, 007 Legends only a couple of months after, aaand Razor's Edge several months before the competition.
The one you are right about is Batman, but then again, I've heard it was really well intergrated with the Wii U gamepad, and was definitely superior.

And, well, your source just more or less confirmed a Wii U release. As did the one I looked up just now that was published yesterday. You think it matters which studio handles it? Ubisoft's Romanian studio is handling it, and they've done some stuff before that hasn't gotten any complaints, so I couldn't care less.

'trying something new'

If I run a cellphone company and I release a phone that doesn't focus on being connected to your friends, family and business and I instead pour all my research and development funds into new ways to integrate a vibrator into it, that's not sensible.

I don't want to watch ******* TV on Xbox, I don't want to have advertisements that are based on kinect data targeted at me, I don't want ads AT ALL on a PAID SERVICE. I don't give a **** about your non-functional voice controls, why the hell would I stand there like a ******* idiot yelling at a machine when I can use a controller to do the same thing, just as fast without any errors? I want VIDEO GAMES.

You can't have both be your main focus. Either you spend your time and money on developing new games, partnering with studios and signing deals you you **** around like an idiot and find a new way to integrate social media onto your console. I don't want to be drip fed the same algorithm based horse **** because I know what I want and it isn't a new way to have Nike laser beam an ad into my brain.

It'll be tough, but I hope they can turn the Xbox back into a gaming console.
User avatar #106 to #63 - drzix (04/08/2014) [-]
I don't understand what you mean? It functions perfectly well whilst playing games. Just because they chose to focus on the other media aspects of the console when they were showing it off (which was a ********* move on their part) doesn't mean it's not a good gaming console
User avatar #107 to #106 - mrhazzy (04/08/2014) [-]
Never said it wasn't a good gaming console, I just think that they shouldn't have bothered with the other unrelated social aspect of it, there was nothing wrong with it in the first place, not a lot of people cared about it, they just wanted games, and the way they portrayed the xbox as a social media platform rather than a games console has seriously ruined the image of the xbox.
User avatar #109 to #107 - sketchE (04/08/2014) [-]
i think sony was saying theirs was a social media platform more than microsoft. they toted the xbox one as the all in ONE entertainment system. i mean the PS4 has a share button on the controler
User avatar #111 to #109 - mrhazzy (04/08/2014) [-]
well yeah fair enough, but from all the videos I've seen, and the articles I've read, they didn't really focus on the video games side of things, It was all about the kinect, and how you could use it with Skype to call and video chat with your friends whilst watching a movie that you rented from netflix that you shared on Facebook all from the comfort of your games console. I wouldn't want to do that on a games console, a thing that's designed to play games.
User avatar #121 to #111 - sketchE (04/08/2014) [-]
i think its one of those things where they were focused on marketing the things that would get more people to the console. i dont think they realised it would turn away so many people because they didnt talk about what they knew the thing would be able to do. i mean im really not sure what they could say other than mention games. "it plays games in high definition with a controller and kinect support." ok whats really new to that? thats basicly been every gaming consoles biggest improvement is technology
User avatar #124 to #121 - mrhazzy (04/08/2014) [-]
They could've talked about the new tech inside the console, and how that would improve your gameplay, what the console was capable of, how it compared to the 360, and the new features of the 360 like built in wireless etc etc.

I'll admit it wasn't bad, but what they did talk about certainly didn't work in their favour.
User avatar #158 to #124 - sketchE (04/09/2014) [-]
its one of those things that they had a good product and failed on the PR side. im not sure why hes not there anymore but it sounds like a guy who was on his way out and could care less at that point

Im just looking forward to the stuff he comes out with now, I have a Windows Phone, and that's getting a massive overhaul in the next few months, so I'm hoping Xbox has a massive overhaul down the line, kinda like when they got rid of the "blades"
User avatar #129 to #127 - mrhazzy (04/08/2014) [-]
Way back when, on the 360, instead of the Home hub it has now, It had "blades" before, that swiped across the screen to change from "Games" "Friends" etc etc

Personally I still believe we are indebted to Bill Gates and his monopolising ways. Without a standard OS, can you imagine how ****** gaming would have been? Standardisation is good. Like gabens silly OS which will have worse performing Source games.
#93 to #27 - anon (04/08/2014) [-]
You guys can thumb him down all you want, but he is right. The standardization of windows being "the" OS has made gaming easier on not just the gamers but the developers as well. And just an FYI half of the "steam boxes" will run windows anyway. Because while valve may be incredibly full of themselves even they understand their half asses lenix reboot will not work.

As a PC gamer I hope more Xbox exclusive games will be brought to PC such as Titanfall was, or Halo 1 and 2. I just wish more effort was put into porting it, Titanfall runs great for a game or 2 then awful for a game or two, it just isn't stable like it was designed to work with one system only.
User avatar #8 to #5 - EmoHairflip (04/08/2014) [-]

User avatar #20 to #19 - thenewgizmobox (04/08/2014) [-]
for people without high end PCs to play games?
a console doesn't need good exclusives to be a good console, it just needs to effectively play video games.
User avatar #33 to #20 - PenguinsOfMars ONLINE (04/08/2014) [-]
I built my "high end" PC for $475 and it runs BF4 better than XB1 and runs Titanfall about the same as XB1 (not to mention in 1440p while XB1 is 720p, could be even better if I had a better monitor) $475 im pretty sure is cheaper then the consoles that came out right now
User avatar #34 to #33 - thenewgizmobox (04/08/2014) [-]
alright, i should probably go more in-depth in this
for someone who's inexperienced, learning the ins and outs of building your own PC isn't an easy thing to do. it takes a lot of time to learn about the pieces you want, what works best, ect... time some people aren't willing to spend when you can just as easily grab an xbox from the nearest best buy along with a few games and play where the only technical experience you need is putting the round wire in the round hole on your tv.
i'm not saying PC gaming doesn't have its place, i'm just saying consoles have their own niche aswell.
#39 to #34 - anon (04/08/2014) [-]
I started with a simple pre-built PC, maybe like $300 at most, cheap thing not made for gaming. It couldn't run L4D2 on anything but low. I knew nothing about building computers. Swapped out a few parts and now it runs games like Dead Island at max. Very simple replacements and used a very simple site to make sure that the parts worked with my current parts.
User avatar #40 to #39 - thenewgizmobox (04/08/2014) [-]
yes, but as i said was it faster than popping right into the nearest gamestop or other electronic store and picking up a console?
no? well there you go, that's why people buy consoles, ease of access.
User avatar #22 to #20 - BmanX (04/08/2014) [-]
No, it's not as simple as it being able to play games. Exclusives are a huge reason why people choose one game box over another. Their only plus can't be "we're cheaper" if they want to sell consoles. They need exclusives to drive gamers towards their console.
User avatar #23 to #22 - thenewgizmobox (04/08/2014) [-]
yes, because without specs the consoles would have to focus menial things like upgrading their hardware and performance, what a travesty.

No, but seriously, I don't know if Xbox can recover from this one. They are always calling it an entertainment system instead of a Gaming system, when obviously no one is going to buy mainly from any reason but to play games. They should advertise those features, sure, but not make them the focus of marketing.

They won't be able to win the console war this go around. I still have my 360, but I don't see me going to an xbone. Sony has the more powerful system, better price point, and PS Plus is just slaughtering Games with Gold(Hitman???!!! Are you slowtarded???) People buy consoles to play games period point blank.

im sorry but no. most of the PS3s sales when it launched were for the blue ray player because it didnt hav enough games. i sold so many to old people with no intention of playing games just because they wanted a blueray player and the games was a side note for their grandkids. i know countless people who own consoles and havent touched a game in months but the console is constantly running. as much as gamers hate to admit it nintendo succeeded in bringing non gamers to consoles. but its not for games

This. I have both PS Plus and Xbox gold, and Plus has FAR better games...Bioshock Infinite, DmC, Dragon's dogma...plus it's easier to navigate to check the free games, and they're available MUCH longer. Xbox is a pain to navigate to the free game and it's only up for a few days.

Haven't got a next gen console yet, but it will be PS4. So done with microsoft.

You dont quite understand what you're saying so I'll help you out.

The Xbox IS in fact an ENTERTAINMENT system. Not a "Gaming" system.
Atari = entertainment system
NES = (its even in the name)

Sega genesis = entertainment system... PC = Personal Computer - Laptop = Laptop - and so on and so forth.

I really don't want to hate the guy, cause I can't imagine it was his fault the Xbone was announced as the ********* game console of all time. Other people chipped in too guys, I'm sure this one guy did not design the worst "feature" set to have ever struck a game console ever.
