When do you think there will be a price drop?

How hard is Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 and Call of Duty: Ghost for Wii U? Which one is easier and more fun? I heard ops2 has more modes.

How is Ninja Gaiden 3: RE online multiplayer?

What do people think of Hyrule Warriors?

1. Spring, once Nintendo fails it's most recent projections

2. Ehhh, neither are hard. Go for Ghosts

3. Don't know

4. Garbage tie in that's going to hurt the franchise. Every single franchise that has done this has been hurt by it.

I wouldn't wait for an official price drop necessarily, since there are so many deals.

I don't think there will be a spring price drop, summer or afterwards is more likely.

whoops, the deals are all gone... yeah i'd just wait for a price drop. Hopefully Bayo will be out by then.

1- price drop? maybe at e3....if not then maybe sept like this year...

2- black ops has more modes like groundwar but its not always easy to get a game because theres only like 1000 people online at a time....on ghosts there is 2000 people online now....but there is no groundwar on wiiU....

some people like treyarch games....others like infinity ward.....for me...treyarch games make me rage more....ghosts is more relaxed imo..

3- never got gaiden...here are some online multiplayer vids on it when it launched though

Get ghosts, extinction is so much better than zombies. Plus more people on the servers.

#@pacific90:

Price Drop: There was one right before PS4 and Xbox One launched. It wont drop officially for a long time. MAYBE Christmas next year but Nintendo is already taking a $100 loss on each one. Might be random sales and discounts stores do randomly though. Don't be a cheap skate. The Wii went 3 years before getting a price drop I believe.

COD: Sorry can't comment on that I don't like or support COD.

Ninja Gaiden 3: Never played it so I cant help you there lol.

Hyrule Warrios: Was shocked at first, but then realized its just Dynasty Warriors with Zelda slapped on to help for the wait of Zelda HD. Dynasty Warriors got boring REALLY fast and basically died off. It will be the same. I have no interest in it. And this is coming from a guy who has Zelda as his number 1 favorite franchise in gaming.

@Master_Of_Fools:

I know people say this all the time, but somehow i really don't buy that nintendo is taking a huge loss with wii u.

@Chozofication: Before they were on the system but it was $50 but you buy a game with the system so that extra $60 makes it a $10 profit. Now that they are losing $100 per console it really is a $40 loss now when a game is bought with it.

Hyrule Warriors seems interesting. No price drop for a while since there was one along wuth bundles. Defin get Ghosts, more people on online.

The thought process is sound, and I see how you're adding up the math, but that logic is founded in the belief that the games themselves don't cost anything to make. Nintendo isn't profiting sixty dollars a game because they also have to cover the costs of producing the game itself.

@realjaysonguy: I was just repeating what Reggie himself said. He said When a game is bought with the Wii U then we make a profit.

I would not grab a wiiU for shooters, yuck.

It's amazing for platformers like Mario and DK though

@pacific90: There's not going to be another price drop for awhile.
