Quoth PORKStheMEATofKINGS:Also, 32 gigs? $350? The Xbox 360 newest model had 250 gigabytes, and that's last gen! Modern PCs have TERRABYTES of memory! Nintendo needs to get with the program o.e


Comparing PCs to consoles is stupid. (I can't think of a good analogy.) PCs are always going to be better than consoles as far as progression and gaming if you have the latest stuff.

Rolls Royce to a Mercades.

I think it's 32GB of flash memory, aka an SSD, which would increase the price more than a standard HDD.

"Because local multiplayer will always be the best kind of multiplayer.

Local multiplayer is a fun, yet not always optimal option. You're train of thought is what has kept Nintendo behind in areas of growing importance for about half a decade."


Um, sorry to do this but, * your

If you had it your way it would say , "You are train of thought...", and as much as Waffles like trains, I don't think he that kind of train. More like a burning talking train that spews out video games. I ride that train.

Agreed. A 1TB hard drive costs around $40-$50-ish, and the Deluxe WiiU BARELY has more than what the BASIC Xbox 360 had back in 2005: 20GB. <img src="/chatrooms/smilies/alien2.gif" alt="">

It's not a terribly huge issue, but given how relatively cheap storage is, it's quite an unnecessary one.

But you can easily plug in your 1TB drive to it for external memory. I believe that up to 4TBs of external can be added.

I agree. So much so that you actually (not sure if on purpose) paraphrased me! Great blog!

(BTW)

On yesterdays Wii U blog from Waffle King:

Quoth PORKStheMEATofKINGS:
"Not too sure about the launch lineup at the moment. Wii U is looking like it's going the way of the 3DS."

Your blog:
"And speaking of games, the launch lineup is giving me the 3DS vibe, to a lesser extent."

Woo, someone agrees. ;)

I haven't been on Paint in ages, so coincidence ahoy. x)

Nintendo Land doesn't have online multiplayer because it's not a game that would have online multiplayer. The game was made for family to play and interact with each other.

Quoth Waffle King:
Nintendo Land actually has some value to it, as opposed to Wii Sports. As in if it weren't packaged with the system, I'd still go buy it.

The price is pretty reasonable. Especially since they'll be selling the system at a loss. You know. Nintendo can only be so generous.


I doubt it's sold at a loss, given the tech it has is from about 2010-ish, with fairly low storage space (by today's standards).

Nintendo has said that all of your Wii downloads will be playable on the Wii U. They probably won't support Game Pad use at launch, but I'm sure they'd update everything when they get to it.


Which is what I said I hope they'd do.


The launch titles are a lot better than the 3DS had, that's for sure. Mario U, Nintendo Land, Ninja Gaiden, ZombiU. They have at least something for just about anyone. They have shooting games, fighting games, platformers, racing games. More games have been announced for the Wii U before launch than games announced for the Vita, ever.


Mario U is yet another "New" game, the last 3 of which progressed from decent, to cash-in, to dear god THIS is what they sold us?! ZombiU looks fairly generic. I might get Ninja Gaiden. Nintendo Land looks good, but the lack of online play is dissapointing and peculiar.


I understand if you're late to recognize the Wii U's awesome. You're obviously blind or something. It's okay. I understand.


Riiiiggghhtt. It definitely can't be that there are some problems. ;)

Quoth Waffle King:Quoth Skittles:Quoth BanMan:Interesting to see your opinion on it.

There are a few other things included in the super duper ultra awesome cool black bundle, though, including ten percent off downloads (which could be nice if you plan on downloading a lot of games), and stands and chargers for the Wii U itself and the pad.

Also I think a lot of buyers and players would like to import their previously purchased Wii virtual console games.

I do think it would be nice if Nintendo Land were packaged in the white package, but it's apparently a more full game than Wii Sports was. I haven't played it yet though.

But nice blog!

Ah yes, I forgot about the download discount.

Didn't they say Nintendo Land didn't have online multiplayer? That's a bit annoying. :/

Thanks; it was terse. :3It won't have online because that ruins the point of it. Nintendo is encouraging you to go outside and make some friends. Because local multiplayer will always be the best kind of multiplayer.

Well, I'll be buying the Deluxe package, so my Nintendo Land complaint is dampened a bit I guess. :o
