Yeah I remember that bullshit comment. If anyone saw what Nintendo and companies like FACTOR5 back then did on the gamecube they would know that what we saw produced on the Wii WAS NOT representive of the full force of what Wii itself was truly capable of....and Nintendo themselves said they did not even max out the gamecube....so...when a comment like that comes up from a developer(who seem to be ticked off heh) that Wii is TWO gamecubes duct taped together well....heh.

If Gamecube reached HERE(at a certain level we saw what the great looking great performing cube games were like)...and what what developers did with Wii you all think is what the Wii was capable of....SOMETHING AIN'T RIGHT.

It's obvious. Wii suffered because devs were lazy....most of them did not want to make proper from the ground up Wii (480p) games. So they followed a trend called SHOVELWARE. Take a PS2 game and heck a PSP game AND WAGGLE(meaningless motion controls in most cases) and make it run on Wii capitalizing in raking in money in some cases-if successful at all- for waggle games.(that's it)

No use of the Wii hardware itself. just port like crap make it run.. done. Plus consider costs. The developers were bread and buttered with "HD twins" (360/PS3). Plus they had to make games for them AND MOBILE in many cases....where is all the funding going to come from for that...PLUS to make a separate game FOR Wii using innovative motion controls and making a 480P engine all the time. Because you cant just straight port an HD game and DOWNGRADE it to 480P for Wii......different architectures...different problems.

And yes that is what the Wii was capable of. Every multi platform game on 360/PS3 could of been on Wii in 480p engine. Same game just not as crisp and perhaps other drawbacks DEPENDING on the game.

Done.

The Wii did eventually get some games that demonstrated its capabilities. For example, Xenoblade was a good demonstration of the Wii's power. It had a massive real-time open world, much larger than what we saw in 6th-gen games, or even most 7th-gen games.

True ....but that was a bit too little too late and the gems on Wii showing great graphical prowess(so its not HD..so what) AND using innovative interactive motion controls were few and far between. But they exist. Such game titles showed wii and motion controls was not a gimmick(in the derogative sense). It was a highly innovative system. That as far as the core gaming market was concerned it was highly underused and underestimated and dissed. IMHO. i DUNNO ABOUT YOU OR ANYONE ELSE. I do not like keyboard and mouse for an FPS game. Nor do I fancy a regular gamepad for an FPS game. As far as i am conerned Wii IR ointer and nunchuk is BEST and now THE standard of how to play FPS games on consoles .The SWITCH better have motion and IR pointing OR some kind of IR blaster/USB backward compatibility support for old wii motion plus remotes Or I will be extremely disappointed!!! This cannot be understated. heh.

Games like Xenoblade...as you mentioned...

Metroid Prime 3.

No More Heroes 1 and 2

Red Steel 1 and 2

The Conduit 1 and 2

Zack and WIKI

Epic Mickey

The Call of Duty games....

Medal of Honor Games....

THESE ARE JUST SOME I CAN REMEMBER OFF THE TOP OF MY HEAD I MAY EDIT THIS AND ADD MORE....

I even enjoyed the so called crappy Far Cry Vengeance on Wii.....the motion controls were wonky and off sometimes but when it worked i got excited about what more....motion controls could do in games....i mean i was so happy so thrilled. heh.

and a myriad of Wii Shop channel games showcased the awesomeness of IR and motion controls.

and much much more...

I can' believe its been 10 years of Wii. WOw. Time sure flies.

@iandizion713: ok. What I was saying was companies have always uses graphics capabilities as a major selling point.

Which is quite remarkalbe.

Every console cycle gamers are drawn in about the exact SAME THING every time.

Look at the pretty graphics..our power our power our power..BUY IT.

Gamer: ok. da powah n der pweety gwafics..weeee.

and it repeats. So EMPTY.

I thought you were gamers? You play for the love of the game or the love of the tech? Both you say? Well....tech is tech no matter how you slice it....no matter what. The game is the proof of the pudding...heck it IS the pudding.

You can have the most powerful console in the world....heck in the galaxy. If nobody switches it on and plays it....its just an expensive fucking brick.

Good day.

@svaubel: Actually if Nintendo and NVIDIA have pulled that off.. It would be of little surprise to me. People need to stop thinking OH power means it has to be SUPER HUGE like a fkn tank.....NO. The days of this are almost gone now...where MOBILE will TRUMP a standard home device. That is in EVERY market.. meaning.........a home device that is not mobile(for eg PC) vs a portable device that is(for eg mobile PC/tablets/phones/PSP/3DS/SWITCH.)

This kind of cycle began when you had the likes of Apple introducing their latest ipad back in the day(well it also began with the ATOM CPUs from Intel as well and ARM processors being LOW POWER devices)..and saying it displays 1 million more pixels than Xbox360 and PS3...i MEAN seriously think and the ipad is not large device....its a thin thing. So yeah.

It is not out of reach at this point and in the next 5 - 10 years i am CERTAIN that nobody will be on here or any tech or gaming forum saying a MOBILE platform can't trump a HOME device.(PC OR console) Heck depending on what Nintendo say about the switch on January 12th they either have come close(matching the power) OR may have done it.(trumping the power of home console OR being able to be a HOME/MOBile that has this power. Quite remarkable. EDIT(In any case they will because it will surely be more powerful than a WiiU/PS3/X360 and all before that..so..yeah hehheh)

So please gamers. STOP with this BOXED thinking THINK OUTSIDE the box for once. To me that saying simply means actually using your brain. Because in society we don't actually use our brain we get told how to use them (boxed thinking) which is quite weird if you THINK about it. lol. It is our brain how is it you do not know how to really use it? lol. It's quite funny lol

But yeah. WE shall see.

@FireEmblem_Man: also had a USB3.0 port so said but this idiot who replied to you comment is face palming like it having two USB2.0 ports also is the end of the world. USB2.0 which is being used in the world on so many devices right now. Because waiting a bit longer than the USB3 port will probably end your life (that's a joke)...you cant possibly tolerate it. LOL Fkn people these days man is this world. UGH such idiots.

I was deeply saddenned when I was just popping into Miiverse to check up and lo and behold I saw the announcement on there.

I could not believe what I was reading. Mr Iwata passed away...and on my birthdate at that.

I will miss you Mr Iwata-san....thanks for all the memories....E3s Nintendo directs, Iwata asks....and thanks for making Nintendo what it is today which you were instrumental in...and providing us Nintendo fans with awesome consoles and games to play on them.

Back to the COSMIC SOURCE you go I guess. Say Hi to Yamauchi-san and tell him we await the biggest Megatonne news as Nintendo carries on your great work when you lead the ship....and reveals the new codename NX system that I think will change gaming ....way more than any console Nintendo ever created!(you all wait and see..i feel it heh)

So thanks again and my deepest condolences to your family, friends and all Nintendo colleauges worldwide.

Thank you Iwata-san. God speed back to the COSMIC SOURCE.

Isn't it obvious folks. Think about it. Nintendo has something in development that will be SIMPLER more intuitive and less a barrier(when I see folks with VR headsets they look both silly and awkward(eye strain and neck strain here we come not to mention epilepsy sufferers plus people who will just react badly when using it-vomit city etc). This wonky award headset will not be required in Nintendo's solution.

They cryptically hinted at this when speaking about the Q.uality o.f L.ife thing...then shortly after that the NX development was announced(if i recall correctly). Qol(Qualify of Life) will work with the NX I think.

When they say things remember it is all CRYPTIC and has more meaning to it. Tryign to hold their secrets close to their chest without letting it out of the bag. Giving the "competition" less to COPY. heh So right too. :D

They ARE hatching a solution that is somewhere between VR and augmented gaming OR both...and you do not require these headsets like Microsoft and Sony have.(ANYONE EVEN THINK ABOUT WHAT THEY WILL CHARGE FOR THESE ADD ONS. HA!)

Perhaps if you do have to wear something on the face it will be very minimal like a frame of regular specs(small and light AND some 1:1 motion controlled gloves that slip over the hand OR just the fingers AND TRACKS EVERYTHING into the game.

For me, from what Nintendo has said...leads me to this/these conclusion/s. It is obvious TO ME that they have their own solution to this VR/augmented reality trend/tech..and it will be a simpler solution yet complex and interesting in operation and if you know Nintendo by now you know this is what they usually try to go for AND sell it for a cheaper mass market price than their "RIVALS". heh.

E3 2016 can't come soon enough.

However I expect another cryptic hint to be dropped at TGS -(remember rall those years ago before the launch of the Wii when they showed the Wii remote at TGS for the first time. heh)- in September and maybe more SMALL hints bit bit bit until E3 2016. ;)

PS: Oh the final effect his light headwear(if any headwear at all) PLUS the gloves that would track 1:1 motion(hand and finger) movement is straight up HOLOGRAPHIC. You heard me.

Yeah..their solution will be HOLOGRAPHIC without the need for all this VR headwear. Mhm. You know like how with the 3DS it does not require 3D glasses to view 3D. This is how Nintendo will do it. ;) If any headgear it will be about head tracking and be just like regular specs or something like I said... Other than that no relatively bulky VR headsets and such.

OK I am done now. Peace.

Airhead gamers. They think mature gaming is blood gore and GTA Ho sex. They think this is the DEFINITION of a video game. I laugh at that.

Juveniles. That is all they are. Juveniles. 11 YEAR OLD minds. IMHO.

Time enough SENSIBLE gamers like me speak out on this. Will I seem like a Nintendo fanboy. I am a Nintendo...FAN. Just a FAN. Furthermore I am no boy, I am a man.

A man who loves gadgets and tech. So I play games. Doesn't make me immature. Most the people who THINK because you play a video game it makes you kiddy/immature couldn't even understand HTML code...less understand the complex work and tech it takes to make a videogame go.

So, those people who think that way can feast on that little bit of knowledge.

Now Nintendo is good to be brought up because they still make games that do not need blood violence or GORE to be what a true game is. This is what will be lost if they ever go away from this Industry.

I used to think about this and wonder why....but I know why ...guys like me were in their twenties 10 years ago. We know about the decade of gaming prior.

Most gamers today were only little kids a decade or more ago. They all grew up on COD and GTA..thinking that is the end all be all of gaming.

They all grew up in the 3D era where games look more and more like movies/photorealistic to life.

Many do not even know about the 2d era of gaming.

Nintendo shows that more interesting things can be done and shows a video game at its best simply engages you makes you enjoy it..have fun.

It does not need a drop of blood, an ounce of violence and no sex with hos either to be amazing. It does not need to fit any idea of being "mature" because simply it is either you are mature or you are not. Playing a game that has violence gore and sexual themes DOES NOT MAKE you mature....in fact if you think about it, it makes you immature if you think that makes you somehow hip and cool...and this is exactly how a juvenile would think...because they are getting to do things they think are hip and cool to do...or somehow makes them rebel...lol....and that is the only game they like ..and that is the only kind of game that is worthy of gaming..lol

So you see...this mindset in the industry is not positive it is detrimental....and some say we are heading for ANOTHER crash just like the one Nintendo rescued games consoles from with the launch of NES...way back when.....

Well if the industry keeps pumping out the same ol crap to feed these AIRHEAD type gamers. That is exactly what will happen. The market will be saturated with COD clones and GTA clones. Some gaming landscape you have there. lol

See Splatoon? Now I do love me some COD. Don't get me wrong but do I think COD is the only type of game there is. Do I think I am somehow kiddy because I love platformers like Mario 64 and Mario Galaxy. I loved the Rabbid games by the way....and then some and puzzle games and other platform games from other companies. etc.

You "AIRHEAD gamers" are ruining the industry truth be told. You only want the same thing over and over again and you want to think it makes you MATURE. This is a MATURE game. That does not make you MATURE. ok?

@Isamu_36: Heh. I remember when I used to 100% lame. Sitting at home gaming. No job to speak of. (although I am now in a apprentice 3 month probationary period before being hired-99.9% probability of being hired after the training period in the job) So technically ONCE AGAIN...I am working (and now this will be my 7th official job-prior 6 were VERY SHORT temp roles 6th job about 8 9 months ago was-Zero Hour contract..and I only lost out of it because they did not call me back for work!!! Shrugged me off I GUESS. lame.)

Anyway, watching this E3 I will have a special feeling because not only did I buy my WiiU last October with my own money. I have prospects now of being able to buy my games too....and the whole nostalgic history of sitting here gaming and watching E3 on gamespot and what not and chatting you fellow gamers will be very special for me.

Plus my health scares of past months and I still think something is wrong just dunno what....(being told I am fine in every case except having slightly high cholesterol)....but I know something else is up OR is it all in my head as my doc told me...well yeah it will be very special for me this time.

I love tech I love gaming. I love the whole atmosphere of seeing the advancement in tech for fun entertainment and tools for educational use too.

I just love it all. So....yeah game on.

Nintendo needs to go all out with the Wii U so that the console can at least go out with a bang. Big titles like Metroid and a new Mario would be an awesome way to do just that along with a big price cut. And then next year can be all about the NX which hopefully addresses the issues that held back the Wii U. A tiny tease of the NX would be great for this year's E3.

Couldn't have said it better. But I think the unified one account system they are coming with(and having games on smart devices and PC<--this is a big hint I think...Why did they say PC? Nintendo games on PC?, ,the portable 3DS AND home consoles WiiU AND THE new NX..what kind of a system is that? hm.

Is it just the account system that will be on PC like how you can log into Miiverse on a web browser on PC/Mac....hm.

Well the first LOGICAL assumption is Nintendo is building a software platform many already assume. It installs on PC and runs their games connecting to the Nintendo servers that then connect with the 3DS,WiiU and NX(the NX is actual hardware too right? hmm?) platforms.

Gamers having their ONE Unified Nintendo account can continue stuff from one platform to the other regardless of which they own(perhaps some games will be 100% playable while others will only be able to reduced actions like management of some specific thing that then can be carried over to the other device and home console game). So you access Nintendo from A smart phone, a tablet, a 3DS, WiiU or the new NX and all you do is reflected on your one account across all devices. Whichever ones you have. heh.

So what am I saying in summary? It will be a cross between an app and something like what GAIKAI or ONLIVE.com has. Where on PC,smart phones & tablets you install the NINTENDO NX APP and you have a "Nintendo console". Then on WiiU and 3DS you have something similar where you log in same as we do now with our NNID(Nintendo Network ID) and you are on your account there as well. Which will be the same account you have if you use it on the smart phone, tablet OR PC!!!

This connects to the Nintendo Servers and using the power of the servers games are rendered/STREAMED back to w/e device you are on. Smart Phone,Tablet,PC,3DS,WiiU,NX.

I also think there may be a new interface that does not require you to wear anything(or perhaps if it does it will be REALYL SMALL AND LIGHT AND NON OBTRUSIVE & NOT ARKWARD TO USE)!(they made a cryptic hint about this) If there is anything to wear it will be really light perhaps something similar to Google glass.?

Perhaps the controller will be double glove style(small light gloves or some things that ring around the fingers(for motion and gesture controls) where you slip then on and it tracks 1:1 hands AND finger actions into games and it works in tandem with the glasses OR yet another perhiperal which will eliminate the need for VR glasses or TV/Monitors.<--yes I said that.

Yes you heard me. the QOL(Quality of Life) device thy mentioned will also come in somewhere here. I think about that too sometimes....and I think could QOL-Quality of Life be a hint that this system will produce almost true to life visuals(and not just be about health) heheh. But that could be a stretch too much on my part. Wishful thinking perhaps.

So in summary I think NX will be an app for smart devices that connects to Nintendo Network and of course all devices you access it from smart devices and Nintendo consoles using ONE unified account and system.

Nintendo NX will be tapping into the VR as everyone is doing that now...but it will do it in a way that eliminates the need for awkward hefty headsets and peripherals(may even eliminate the TV/Monitor and have its own specific !"screen"!,<--or w/e they heck it will be.). It will make VR/or a mix of VR and AUGEMNTED reality simple, easy, intuitive and non obstructive for users. It will also make it a good mass market price and not expensive as the other solutions to VR will be.

It will launch in 2016. ;)

I derived at this/these conclusions logically and some intuition... from what we know and what Nintendo themselves have said to us. Plus look at what is going on in the tech field. Everyone is buzzing on VR! Microsoft,Sony etc etc.

Anyway looking forward to E3.
