Nintendo Network ID confined to single Wii U console

Oh man. Well lets just hope these rumours of over heating aren't prevalent otherwise people will be losing data all over the show.

This is the first Nintendo system I wont be buying at launch. Since the Nintendo 64. Says quite a lot for Nintendo. Do they really think I am going to spend 300 to play a side scrolling Mario game which looks like it could of been programmed for any console in the last two decades.

This is the best they could come up with for a system launch? How can this be the same company that made Mario 64 a launch title. Maybe I will pick it up in a couple of years for Zelda. But it will probably be a 2d downwards facing bore off so I will probably just buy a PS4 and an Xbox instead.

@Kami I hear what you guys are saying. I guess I just have such great memories of the snes/n64 era that my rationality is blinded. A true next gen banjo Kazooie platform game would just be so great.

Selling Rare was one of Nintendos worst decisions. Oh what could of been.

@BaggyAnt , didn't even think of this and it's glaringly obvious. The constant streaming will result in collosal data being exchanged. I don't see it working well for a long long time. The network isn't capable enough, far too irregular and unreliable. The amount of times I have to reset my router becomes tedious, being unable to play a single player game because of this would really piss me off.

Am I the only one that doesn't want this? What happens if I can't get online for whatever reason?

I just want to buy a disc so I can play it when I want how I want, by all means let me download content to my internal hard drive.

One day we will look back and miss the more simpler times I'm telling you!!

@GavinUK86 Im clinging on to the idea this is a joke. It makes me feel better about a huge cockup on an epic scale we just witnessed. Imagine a true next gen Mario or Zelda game. Just imagine it. Done? Good, thats as close as your getting for probably 2-3 years. Thanks Nintendo.

Seriously Nintendo, go do one. Im not buying a machine for 250+ (Come on, its not going to be that cheap with that controller...) to play a god damned side scrolling Mario game.

Theyeve been working on this machine since 2008. Where's Zelda? The Zelda clip they showed last year was a thousand times more interesting than any of the garbage 23 titles they showed off.

That was one of the worst Hardware launches I have ever seen. 'its all about the games'

Funny that because I must have missed them. No in house AAA Games? No Launch information? No hardware specification? No price?

Did I mention there were no games? Im not buying a machine to play re-released of games I already own or can buy on another machine.

Oh wait! They launched a 2d side scrolling Mario! What a load of bull.

Epic unveils Unreal Engine 4 with stunning in-game screens

I think the next generation consoles are going to be a huge compromise in cost/technology, which is a shame because they will have a long shelf life.

Come back to the PC Epic!!! They talk about wanting to be at the forefront of technology yet don't even bother to make anything for the PC any more. Bah.

In Theory: Nintendo's "Next-Gen" Challenge

joshcharlesforrest

I think it's going to be quite a bit more expensive than some people are expecting. The cost of the backwards looking controller must be quite a lot by itself. And it's not very nice looking. And gimmicky. Take me back to my youth please! Nothing will ever top playing super mario 64 for the first time.
