I guess that's one way to artificially plug the holes in your software schedule, lol. Honestly, though, I don't see this selling much on the Wii U at all; maybe it would have had a chance of at least making returns on the investment if it had launched day and date with the other versions, but as it stands now, it's gonna be a very spectacular bomb.

But Christmas sales

#4 Edited by PinkieWinkie (1375 posts) -

Can't see anyone buying this version unless they only own a Wii U. Would rather have the 360 or PS3 version.

At least they're getting it. Mark your calendar guys, the WiiU got a 3rd party game!

Eh. I'm getting the PC version, but I'd get the Wii U version if the only other options were the 360 and PS3 versions.

Lol is there a Wii U version? What's next gameboy? LOL

#10 Posted by Demonjoe93 (9631 posts) -

Well, at least we know it coming. I can't see this game selling very well at all though. It's coming later and it's going to be on the 360 and PS3. If I want to play this game, I'll just get it for my PS3.

Eh. I'm getting the PC version, but I'd get the Wii U version if the only other options were the 360 and PS3 versions.

Why? The last Ubisoft game (AC4) was worst on WiiU. DIgital Foundry:

“The Wii U version consistently falls 6-10fps behind the 360 and PS3 releases, resulting in a jerky, often uneven update and a profound, unsatisfying reduction in controller response. Combined with the GamePad’s twitchy analogue sticks, the low frame-rate makes frantically running across rooftops and chasing down targets a frustrating affair, the net result being that we’d often have to repeat some missions multiple times – something that wasn’t much of a problem on 360, and with no issues at all when playing at 60fps on the PC version of the game.”

Those sound like very minor gripes in comparison to the convenience of not having to pause the game to set map markers and fast travel. At least I'm assuming that would all be on the gamepad. I've only played the PC version of AC4.

If you think that, grand. Having the entire game run at 2/3 the speed and every bit of gameplay being "jerky", "uneven", "unsatisfying", "frustrating" and needing to be "repeating missions" because of it, sounds like a fucking nightmare to me.

Same here. Will be getting Watchdogs for PC too. If not that, then it would be PS4. If not that, then it would 360. If not that, finally WiiU :P

Not interested in it, but if I was, I wouldn't get it on the WiiU.

The difference being that Watch Dogs never had an audience on Wii U to begin with. The difference being that the Wii U version of Watch Dogs is inferior. The difference being that Watch Dogs on Wii U and other systems is still functionally the same game.

You seem to be tripping over yourself with bad reasoning to somehow make Nintendo and the Wii U look doomed.

Well, AC4 is nothing but repeating missions anyway, even when you advance to new ones. In all seriousness, though, I'm sure the game runs fine. The difference between the Wii U and PC/PS4/Xbone version is huge. I would never buy that version if I had one of those platforms. The difference between the Wii U/Xbox 360/PS3 versions is negligible, though. It's basically the difference between PS3 and Xbox 360 multiplats earlier last gen, where you really could only tell any difference if both the games were running right next to each other.

Terrible release window, but at least it's coming.

You already told me you only played the PC version. So where is this information coming from? Just blind defense of WiiU? Running at 20ish FPS, 2/3 the speed of the 360/PS3 versions and being "jerky", "uneven", "unsatisfying", "frustrating" is NOT NEGLIGIBLE. Sorry, but it's lies/misinformation to pretend they are the same.

Anyway, enough derailing a Watchdogs thread. Good for WiiU!

@locopatho: I watched a comparison video to draw my conclusions.

I am REALLY surprised it didn't get cancelled. Good for Wii U owners who don't own a PS4/X1/PC.

I would have been surprised if they had cancelled it, simply because they have been working on it for a long time now. The game is going to lose Ubisoft money, but since they have already spent most of that money, they will lose less by releasing it than they would by cancelling it. I think it will probably sell 100-200k.

@charizard1605: You dont know if its worse yet. The audience is there. Youre just making things up as you go along, as usual. I never said the WiiU was doomed. Some crazy selective reading you got there

We do know if it's worse. Simple logic and precedence of fighting games on handhelds dictates its worse. The fact that Smash Bros. will have to be played with 3DS controls (one less analog, to begin with) is proof enough. The fact that 3DS's online is laughable compared to the Wii U's is proof enough.

The audience is there- do you think that the Smash Bros. audience, which is the local four player audience, will be happy with the 3DS version, where each player must own not just their own 3DS but also their own copy of the game?

I am making up nothing. I am using some sense and logic, which is something you are clearly not doing. Also, if your assertion that Smash U, which is, let's face it, the system's biggest game (probably the biggest it will get over its lifetime), is 'doomed,' then what is the clear implication? Like most doomsayers, you never explicitly said the Wii U was doomed- you just made it very clear that it was without ever incriminating yourself.

#27 Posted by scottpsfan14 (5588 posts) -

Good stuff. Think I'll go and buy a Wii U just for this game.

#28 Posted by DocSanchez (1652 posts) -

1. Surprised they are getting it.

2. By the time it is out everyone who wants it will have it.

3. This will be the least bought version.

4. This will be the least supported version in terms of DLC. Although given by the time it's out it will likely be a budget title on PS3 et al they may get the DLC thrown in.

5. LOL. At least it's something, anything, for the wii u.

#29 Posted by bbkkristian (14957 posts) -

Whelp, they have effectively sent it off to die because of the delay.

#30 Edited by DocSanchez (1652 posts) -

@bbkkristian: It was dead before arrival anyway, nobody buys third party games on Nintendo main consoles.

i dont own a nogamestation4 or an x1 and its not good for me.

in fact. i dont give a shit.

im buying it to support idiot 3rd parties on wiiu because i know other gamers cry in their pillows when wiiu misses out on another generic ass game.

sent to die.

But Ubisoft knew that.

#40 Posted by Bigboi500 (30106 posts) -

There was a time when I was sure I'd get the PS4 version, but after the postponement and graphical downgrade I might just wait and see how they implement the use of the Wii U tablet controller before I decide which version to get.

#41 Edited by PrincessGomez92 (3621 posts) -

Just don't complain about it selling poorly, Ubisoft.

#42 Edited by bbkkristian (14957 posts) -

@DocSanchez: then what's the point of making the argument, "I'm not buying a Nintendo system because it doesn't get any third party games?"

If I know my Ubisoft, it'll be a world-class port.

#45 Posted by Capitan_Kid (6585 posts) -

@charizard1605: You dont know its worse. Youre just making assumptions out of your ass. Missing a second analog stick means absolutely nothing for a fighting game. You have no idea what the online is like for it since its not out.

You put way too much bank into the popularity of local multiplayer in this day and age. Online is a lot more popular and the 3DS has it. Also I dont recall Sakurai ever stating everyone you play against must own the game .

Youre making up a lot of shit and labelling me as a doom monger for rhinking the WiiU version will be hurt which is pretty stupid. Dont give me that cfap about you using logic and rationale when youre so quick to make generalizations

#46 Posted by superbuuman (2907 posts) -

Good news, since Im buying Wii U version...would be great news if they had confirm a release date. :)

#47 Posted by trugs26 (5595 posts) -

If the game holds up without glitches, and if it looks fun, I'll consider buying it.
