More about Wii U ahead of E3?

Nintendo hints of continuous stream of info

Nintendo could employ a new tactic for the Wii U, which is to provide a pretty continuous stream of information about the Wii U till it launches. Reggie Fils-Aime has suggested that this could be the strategy that the company will use.

While the company didn’t break any new news about the Wii U at CES, Fils-Aime has been quoted as saying that, “We will be sharing a lot of information through the year on how we will be driving the Wii U into households this year”.

Sounds like we will not have to wait till E3 in June to get more details; but we suspect that the real juicy stuff (such as the launch date, game lineup, and how much it will cost) is likely going to wait till E3. Word from Fils-Aime is that “…the launch line-up for the Wii U will have titles that are going to drive the install base of the platform.” That is news that we are going to have to see to believe.

Many software developers that we have spoken with claim that they are still on the fence about the Wii U. What this means is that while some titles with be headed to Wii U, they have not yet opted for all out developing for the platform. Third party titles have not been as successful on Nintendo platforms as of late, and this is making many developers cautious till they see consumer response and initial sales numbers.

A lot of gamers constantly trash talk Nintendo, but until other consoles, or PC, provides me with new Zeldas, I am going to buy myself a Wii U. So count me in Reggie.

Think the best setup in 2012 is going to be PC and Wii U, all the multiformat games come to PC anyway and are much superior to PS3/Xbox360 versions, and the Wii U for the epic exclusive Nintendo games.

Xbox 360/PS3 are to outdated now, once Wii U launches expect them to get replaced very soon after...

i think nintendo's track record of amazing 1st and 2nd party titles over almost 3 decades, speak for themselves. nintendo deserve much respect, and Shigeru Miyamoto is a video game genius.

so count me in for a Wii U and more Mario and Zelda and Miyamoto's new IP!
