I think its bit OTT so yeah.

http://wiiudaily.com/2014/07/devils-third-system-seller/

According to legendary designer Tomonobu Itagaki, whose legacy is the Dead or Alive series, Devil’s Third is a system seller because fans will purchase a Wii U just to play it. In a recent interview Itagaki admitted he wasn’t concerned over fans asking for additional platforms and admitted that if they want to play the game, they’ll purchase a Wii U in order to do so.

I’m not concerned. Looking through my Facebook already I’ve seen a lot of comments that say, ‘I’m going to buy a Wii U just for this.’ I feel that ultimately gamers are the ones who make the future. I remember back when I took Dead Or Alive to the Xbox instead of the PlayStation – there was a certain Newsweek reporter who said, ‘Sony got steak and Xbox got hamburger.’ But what ended up happening is fans of my game came to the platform and it succeeded in the end. I wonder if looking back that reporter would still say the same thing now and if he’d be embarrassed about having written that article.

Are you excited about picking up Devil’s Third? The game has been in development since at least 2010 and when THQ went under as a publisher, the game was thought to be canned as it never went to auction like the restfof THQ’s IP holdings. With Nintendo stepping in to serve as publisher, Itagaki was finally able to finish his game as planned.

More like 'Devil's Turd'

Seriously...I gotta a lotta love for the Wii U but this game looks like a train wreck.

He's probably wrong, but you have to love his confidence. I know I'm excited about this game. It is probably my most anticipated title on the Wii U, actually.

I'l devided when it comes to Devil's Third

On one hand I love the TPS mix with melee combat and the ability to climb everywhere, the horizontal level design... I mean how awesome is seeing a sniper shoot at you, climb up there and slash him in the face (please let me do that in battlefield :( )

On the other hand the game needs sooooooooooooo much polish, it's not even funny. I hope Nintendo can help with that.

The game looks so bad though. Last gen visuals, jerky mechanics and animations, stupid humor, etc.

Hah, it is more like; if you want to sell the game put it out on more platforms...

There's ugly looking games and there's Devils Third. Brainless violence never sells and this game has nothing but it.

#9 Posted by Slashkice (12988 posts) -

It looks like crap, and I'm not just talking visually. The game needs a lot of work before it can even entertain the notion of being a system-seller.

Are you joking?

#11 Posted by drummerdave9099 (613 posts) -

Wasn't a fan of the over the top in violence in No More Heroes, can't imagine I'm gonna like it in this game either

#12 Posted by freedomfreak (38306 posts) -

It needs to have a lot of polish before I consider buying it.

It just looks bad.

#13 Posted by trugs26 (5141 posts) -

I *highly* doubt it.

#14 Posted by juboner (344 posts) -

You guys are under estimating this game. Mark my words.

#15 Edited by DJ-Lafleur (34088 posts) -

Noooooooooooope.

I'm interested in the game, but I don't see it selling many systems.

Shitty example. Brainless violence do sell but those games mostly have something addicting or revolutionary. Take CoD for example, brogamers are addicted to it. Or Gears had nothing else but violence in it but at the same time it revolutionized the cover mechanic and had a great multiplayer. What does Devils Turd have? It has fuck all. The only reason this pos is even noticed is because its coming on wiiu, a system that is allergic to anything that isn't rated E. This reminds me of Mad World on Wii. Shitty game that is only noticed because it came on a system aimed at kids.

Okay, so you meant that brainless violence by itself doesn't sell. That makes more sense.

#19 Edited by PurpleMan5000 (6637 posts) -

The game just looks fun. It won't sell because it is an over-the-top violent new IP on the Wii U, but I am going to play it and probably enjoy it immensely.

#20 Posted by dobzilian (2475 posts) -

@silversix_: I agreed with everything but Madworld being crap, it was a fun game.

That's funny.

THe game just looks awful as of now.

#24 Posted by 22Toothpicks (11260 posts) -

I think the game looks potentially awesome in terms of gameplay (though it clearly needs to be smoother).

Graphically it looks like something my cat coughed up a few nights ago.

#25 Posted by Heil68 (42747 posts) -

Not something I'm interested in.

I watched an E3 interview with Itagaki and he mentioned that the game is still very much a work in progress, especially in terms of AI. The AI looked completely brain-dead in the gameplay videos.

But I agree: the prospect of going from first person shooting-> 3rd person slicing necks with a katana-> taking cover-> climbing up a wall to flank your enemy etc. etc. is intriguing. If done right this game could be really dynamic and fun.

It's kind of sad that to see this guy still has this warped sense of self importance.

If his game really was going to have the power of a system seller he wouldn't have had to resort to publishing with Nintendo. The game is probably going to sell 500k tops

Same here.

I own a Wii-U but this game definitely wouldn't sell me on it. Maybe a rental at best.

#29 Posted by santoron (7472 posts) -

Commercial train wreck incoming...

This will get talked about for the same reason as Lair did. Its exclusive.

#32 Posted by freedomfreak (38306 posts) -

Resi 6 bad ?

I enjoyed RE6, but I went in with low expectations.

This game just looks like something that would be awesome if they polished it up properly.

#33 Edited by Randolph (10407 posts) -

Itagaki is a cool guy, but he is very, very wrong here.

It's not warped at all. He's the best and he knows it.

#35 Posted by Animal-Mother (26235 posts) -

Has this game been in development for like 5+ years?

#36 Edited by getyeryayasout (6922 posts) -

I'll be surprised if many gamers buy a WiiU specifically for D3rd, but if it reviews well and offers compelling gameplay it might be enough for people like me who are still sitting on the fence regarding the system. I also think it's significant that Ninty stepped in to save this game and have even helped work on the game themselves. I think it's being underestimated because it's a bit rough looking. Certainly it won't hurt the WiiU to have another exclusive in it's library.

I'm intrigued by any game TomonGodbu ItaGodki is behind, but am primarily a single player gamer, so D3rd isn't on my 'must have' radar. Ultimately I just want him to create a spiritual successor to his Ninja Gaiden games. That's the game I'd buy a system for.

It surpassed by expectations if im honest with how bad it was. I need to watch Video again as I was bit high and was like "wut?".

Notifications don't work, son!

But yeah, I totally get that. I enjoyed Ride to Hell, mostly because I was drunk. If I was high on weed, cocaine, and life, I would've probably really enjoyed it when they showed off Devil's Third.

@freedomfreak: Great that is 2 things which dont work correctly. Me and Gamespot.

Yes being under the jnfluence of somethjng can make something entertaining.... I saw "meet the spartans" once :-/

Oh jeez. I watched it, too. Wish I was on drugs when I watched that.

@freedomfreak: I feel for you Dudette, I feel for you. I wish there was some kind of machine which could extract such horrendous memories. Hmmm... I could of mentioned "electra", "catwomen", "the punisher", "mammamia"....

I think it's called alcohol.

I semi-enjoyed The Punisher. Mostly due to Travolta's funny lines. He kills his own wife by throwing her onto the tracks. His son asks where she is, and he just goes:

"She took the train."

That's too good. So funny, it's bad.

@freedomfreak: will Youtube that in a moment as it sounds almost on par with Arnie's great one liners

"GET TO DA CHOOPA", "MACK", "I'll be back"...

It's hard to beat any of the one-liners from the action movies back in the day. They just went for cheese.

Poor Itagaki and his permanently-fused indoor shades is preventing him from reading online sarcasm.

I've also seen people type "Transformers should win Best Picture" or "Kanye West should win the Nobel Peace Prize" in the same jokey manner. No one is going to buy a Wii U just for that game. Get real, Itagaki-san

@freedomfreak: yes, When cheesy and explosions and very poor plot where awesome, When action Heroes made the cast of Gears of War look anorexic.

Seriously.

I love vids like that. A nice compilation of one-liners. Makes me just wanna watch some classic Arnold movies. I always watch Jingle All the Way around Christmas.
