Pretty much sums up my feelings for the Xbox One:
I really do not see Microsoft being as successful as they were the the 360. The Asian companies are making a comeback
This year's E3 wasn't that interesting for me. There weren't a lot of games I was really excited for; only BF4 got me pumped, and I'll have to buy a PC version if I want to play that...
Give them 2 years, then Xbox One will destroy the competition.
Btw very dissapointing E3. Ps4 nothing but just an upgraded Ps3, might as well not waste the money and invest in a Gaming PC instead. WiiU very dissapointing in games. Smash Bros didn't look impressive at all. Only Mario Kart impressed me and that comes till 2014 .
The Nintendo strategy is make games that sell to increase the install base. Putting that Wii Fit character in Smash Bros is genius. Wii Fit was one of the best selling games on the Wii. Now they took a character that millions of people know and put it in one of their other biggest selling games. Very smart move if you stop and think about it.
3D World Mario. Same thing. Make it a game everyone knows and loves and make it multiplayer. So it's still the Mario Nintendo fans love, but also something new and different. And it's MP so 4 people can paly. Again, smart move.
Donkey Kong. Casual gamers like 2D sidescrollers from Nintendo. Again they're tying to get the console out there. Smart move. Also multiplayer.
May not be the games the more hardcore Nintendo fans want, but it's a great way to sell the console. They did the same thing with the 3DS. Sales were bad. First party titles drove the system, and then the 3rd party support started coming in. That's their plan for the Wii U.
As for Best Buy I could easily go, but the lines are crazy long. I'd be waiting hours to MAYBE get a chance to play one game for 5 minutes (you're not guaranteed a chance to play as Kidlat found out). A game that I will probably just buy anyway. I don't think I'm gonna go now.
Sucks that the best games don't come out to next year, but those games right there are definitely going to be fun and they will sell and that's the point. Gotta sell more consoles to get more 3rd party support.
