Watch Dogs For Wii U Will Be Delayed

Tyler Lee February 11, 2014

Watch Dogs For Wii U Will Be DelayedWatch Dogs is an upcoming intended for multiple platforms, such as the PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and the Nintendo Wii U. The game is scheduled to be released later this year, sometime between the 1st of April to the 30th of June, but unfortunately for Wii U gamers, it looks like you guys will be out of luck as Ubisoft has recently confirmed that they will not be releasing the game for the Wii U the same time it is released for the other platforms. Instead the game will be released at a later date although no specifics were mentioned.

According to Ubisoft, “We made the difficult decision to further delay the release of Watch Dogs on Wii U to focus the team’s resources where they could have the broadest possible benefit for both our customers and Ubisoft.” Oddly enough this statement comes after the company expressed their confidence for the Wii U platform just last year, so one would think that maybe prioritizing the console would be on their agenda. We suppose the good news is that the game isn’t cancelled entirely and merely delayed, but at the same time we can only imagine that Wii U gamers can’t be too pleased by this piece of news, and neither can Nintendo who probably needs as many games as they can get on the platform at the moment.

    Nintendo Denies Filing Complaint Against Flappy Bird

    Tyler Lee February 11, 2014

    Nintendo Denies Filing Complaint Against Flappy BirdAs you might have heard, the immensely popular Flappy Bird game for mobile devices has since been pulled from its respective app stores. Many were wondering why that is, especially when it was reported that its creator was raking in a cool $50,000 a day in terms of mobile ads. Some have speculated that it could be due to legal issues, especially from Nintendo who may or may not have sent legal notices to Dong Nguyen over copyright infringement, presumably due to the similarities in art shared by Mario and Flappy Bird. The previous statement released by Nintendo was a bit vague but in a bid to clear things up, Nintendo spokesperson Yasuhiro Minagawa emailed The Wall Street Journal claiming that Nintendo has not complained about Flappy Bird’s similarities to Nintendo’s original Super Marios Bros.

    According to Minagawa, “While we usually do not comment on the rumors and speculations, we have already denied the speculation last week.” Nguyen had surprised everyone when he announced on Twitter that he would be pulling the game from the app stores, claiming that he “cannot take this anymore”. He also wrote, “I can call ‘Flappy Bird’ is a success of mine. But it also ruins my simple life. So now I hate it.” So there we have it, it looks like Nintendo really had nothing to do about this after all, and could simply be due to the developer not being able to deal with the level of success and attention he has been getting.

    Nintendo Wii U Review

    Raymond Wong February 5, 2014

    Nintendo Wii U Review

    The Wii was an unstoppable juggernaut. The underpowered console has sold over 100.9 million consoles worldwide since it was released in 2006. Nintendo didn’t just beat Sony’s PS3 and Microsoft’s Xbox 360 in lifetime sales; it destroyed them both. But the Wii was a fad. After everyone got sick of waggling around Wii Remotes in Wii Sports, the Wii started to lose steam. At the same time, HD video games and movies became the de facto and smartphones and tablets started to eat away at the casual gamers the Wii catered to.

    After six years, Nintendo needed a new console, one with HD graphics, better online features, and most importantly AAA games from third party publishers.

    At E3 in 2011, Nintendo of America president and chief operating officer Reggie Fils-Aimes took to the stage to reveal the Wii’s successor: the Nintendo Wii U, an HD-ready console with another revolutionary new controller. Fils-Aimes said the Wii was a console that stressed playing together with friends and family. With the Wii U, Nintendo would make “you” special with “asymmetric gameplay”, where you can use an innovative GamePad with a touchscreen while others can use Wii Remotes. The one with the GamePad would be able to look at the smaller screen while everyone else could look at the HDTV to see something different.

    Uninspiring name aside, we (and everyone else) were very excited for the GamePad’s potential and the idea of playing games with Nintendo characters in glorious high definition.

    We missed the boat to review the Wii U when it launched on November 18, 2012, but since Sony and Microsoft both launched new consoles, it seems like a good time to evaluate Nintendo’s latest console, now that the next-gen wars are in full swing. (more…)

    Wii U Will Not Be Able To Replicate Wii’s Success, Admits Nintendo

    Tyler Lee February 4, 2014

    Wii U Will Not Be Able To Replicate Wiis Success, Admits NintendoThe Nintendo Wii U is definitely not the hottest selling console at the moment. In fact Nintendo had recently slashed sales estimates of the Wii U by 70% and if you thought that it was prime for a price cut in order to generate sales, like what Nintendo did with the 3DS handheld console, you might recall that Nintendo’s President Satoru Iwata stated that they would not be doing that. In fact Iwata is pretty adamant about not cutting the price of the Wii U and has recently reiterated the point, stating that Nintendo will be maintaining the device’s current RRP, and that he believes it is never too long for the console to succeed.

    Satoru Iwata: New Nintendo Consoles Will Be Similar

    Edwin Kee February 4, 2014

    Satoru Iwata: New Nintendo Consoles Will Be SimilarNintendo is a company that seems to have lost their mojo recently, as the Nintendo Wii U has not done as well as expected by the company and fans. It would be a sad day indeed should Nintendo actually go the way of Sega and exit the hardware business altogether, considering the amount of good memories that have been ingrained in the minds of at least a couple of generations of readers to date. Since they say that insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, and expecting different results, Satoru Iwata of Nintendo has announced that their next generation of consoles will be similar to one another unlike the past. Take the GameCube and the Nintendo DS – those were worlds apart, and the Wii U with the Nintendo 3DS too are different from one another. The future will see a “similar” handheld and console which will be cross compatible.

    Nintendo Believes Free-To-Play Is Hurting Their Business

    Tyler Lee February 4, 2014

    Nintendo Believes Free To Play Is Hurting Their BusinessThe free-to-play model is no doubt a lucrative model for developers. After all with the game being free, getting gamers to check it out will not be too difficult. While this model might work for developers, it seems that not everyone is too thrilled about it, and Nintendo is one of them. Nintendo is both a software and a hardware company, where their first-party software is exclusive to their platforms, meaning that if you wanted to play a game of Mario or Zelda, you’d need to get your hands on any of Nintendo’s gaming consoles because that’s the only place you would find it.

    Nintendo Not Opposed To Mergers And Acquisitions

    Tyler Lee February 4, 2014

    Nintendo Not Opposed To Mergers And AcquisitionsWith the company not doing as well as expected, what’s the future for Nintendo? Obviously they will not be releasing games onto mobile, as the company’s president, Satoru Iwata, has so emphatically claimed. However what Iwata did reveal was that the company did have plans for a new product that would be health-related. That being said Nintendo’s history is more about gaming so what would they know about health? Well perhaps they might acquire a company or merge with a company whose expertise is there. (more…)

    Nintendo DS Games Headed To Wii U’s Virtual Console

    Edwin Kee January 30, 2014

    nintendo-ds-wii-uNintendo is a company that is going through rough times these days, and we have heard that while the company intends to get out of this rut the old fashioned way – through hard work and some luck on the side, those of you waiting to receive news of a cheaper Wii U console will be disappointed. The thing is, word on the street has it that Nintendo could look into a health related solution to their current woes for the future, but at times, it might be best to patch up a leaking boat by looking into one’s past success and surviving on an extraordinary catalog of games. This is what might happen – Nintendo President Satoru Iwata (after getting a pay cut of course) did share that Nintendo could work on bringing their DS library to the Wii U via the Virtual Console.

    Nintendo Wii U Will Not Receive A Price Cut

    Tyler Lee January 30, 2014

    wiiufirmware-delayOne of the defining features of the Nintendo Wii U would be its GamePad. The GamePad, for those unfamiliar, is essentially a second screen for the Wii U, always gamers to stream games from the Wii U onto it for times when the television might be in use. It is also used as a gaming accessory. However apparently there is some confusion regarding the GamePad, at least according to analyst David Gibson who tweeted during Nintendo’s investor call that one of the Wii U’s weakness, according to Nintendo’s President Satoru Iwata, would be how the GamePad is being thought of as an accessory for the Wii, instead of the Wii U.

    Gibson also mentioned that there will be no price cuts for the Wii U anytime soon, which we guess is bad news for gamers who were hoping that during Nintendo’s troubles that a price cut would be in order in a bid to help drum up some sales. It was recently that Iwata took to stage to announce some of their plans for the Wii U’s future, one of which might involve the creation of apps and not games for mobile devices. He also suggested that failing to target the kids demographic could be one of the reasons why the Wii U is doing badly as well. Iwata also suggested that Nintendo’s future could include a platform that would be health-related, an interesting departure from the company’s current core competency which are games. What do you guys think? Do you agree that recognition of the Wii U is one of the reason it isn’t doing so well?

    Nintendo Will Develop Apps For Mobile, But Not Games

    Tyler Lee January 30, 2014

    nintendo-logoIt seems like after a little back and forth, Nintendo has come forward to announce that they will be releasing apps on smartphones, but not in the way that many had initially imagined. During a business presentation by Nintendo’s President, Satoru Iwata, he revealed that Nintendo would be developing apps for mobile devices that would in a way act as an introduction/advertisement to gamers that would make them want to buy more hardware and software from Nintendo. However Iwata did clearly state that these apps are not games and that they have no plans on introducing any of Nintendo’s games onto mobile.

    According to Iwata, “I have not given any restrictions to the development team, even not ruling out the possibility of making games or using our game characters. However, if you report that we will release Mario on smart devices, it would be a completely misleading statement.” It seems that Nintendo’s stubbornness is still holding strong, but whether or not it will pay off remains to be seen. Earlier Nintendo announced several plans that they had for the future. One of them was how the company planned on releasing a new platform that would be health-related, which was a pretty interesting turn of events.
