Watch Dogs For Wii U Will Be Delayed

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

    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

    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

    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

    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

    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.
