    Windwaker was released 10 years ago for the Gamecube, it’s like rereleasing a SNES game for the Gamecube and charge full price. I won’t even but this piece of crap system even if it ran me 10$.

    #6 2 years ago
  7. Clupula

    That’s still about $50 too much.

    You know, thinking about it, if Nintendo wanted to actually sell me a Wii U, you know what would do it? The ability to play all 3DS games on my Wii U, so I could play them on a tv.

    They are killing inventory. . Because they don’t sell the basic system anymore. . So now sell all deluxe bundles. . Then redesign it take out the game cube chipset because that’s keeping the price high.. release it at 179.99 then you can get them back in the mix

    The RETAIL version is $50 but I wouldn’t be surprised if the earlier-released downloadable one was cheaper, like with Super Luigi U.

    Also, $50 isn’t full-price. $60 is full-price.

    $50 is a fine price for it at retail. All of the graphics are redone and mechanics have been tweaked as well. It’s far from the same thing as a Virtual Console release as was implied above.

    I’ll get this at download-launch if it’s cheaper than $50, retail-launch if the download’s the same price.

    SOny and other developers do essentially the same thing and the games sell for 40$. It really is an insult on the price. If they added game features that actually change how the game played on the Wii U that would be one thing but that is not the case here.

  14. fearmonkey

    So I can buy a 12GB PS3 for $199.99, a 4GB Xbox 360 for $199.99, A Wii-u without a game for $299.99, a PS4 for $399.99 and a Xbox One for $499.99 this holiday season.

    The big loser in this is MS with it’s $499.99 price tag. The die hard Xbox fans will bite on it, but everyone else is going to look at cheaper offerings. I think the Wii-u would have sold like hotcakes at $249.99 though.

    #14 500$? Are you dumb? the price is 399 for Xbox One, even though I don’t have any temporary plans about buying one, I think it’s a pretty good price, considering how much the PS3 costed at launch, the price was about 550$ with no game, but eveb though it only got 50 or 100$ price cut, then it began to sell, even though the library was quite small unlike the Xbox One that has a tremendous launch lineup, better than what any other console has ever had in the history of video gaming, software is what’s gonna sell the Xbox One, it has software, something the PS4 doesn’t have that much of. It’s with a free game and the camera for 400$, only 50$ more than PS4, and you get a console that is first priority by the developers who launch their DLC exclusively on Xbox and many developers who launch some of their games exclusively.

    you can argue about the price, sure, it’s definitely not cheap for a remake and a pricepoint like, say 39,99€ would probably be more fitting on paper; i don’t know how much effort and money it took to make this game happen though. to me it doesn’t look like a lazy job. BUT even at full price it still is totally worth it, especially if you haven’t played the game yet. it’s just such a beautiful game.
    i have played it twice but preordered this version anyway. it is a freaking HD windwaker game. it will be the definite version of a game i will probably play again every 5 years or so for the rest of my life. it’s just one of those games, at least for me.
    game looks ultrapolished and clean. can’t wait to see it.

    #16 I’m not that good at foreign currencies, but it’s only 70$ difference in Europe, it’s not that much considering the price for one game, which is 70-90$ in countries like Denmark or Germany and considering, that the Xbox One has a camera in the box and 1 free game.

    It doesn’t have timed exclusives, there hasn’t been any announcements that the PS4 is gonna have them too, but as far as we know now, Titanfall, Dead Rising 3, Ryse, Sunset Overdrive, Project Spark, Fable Legends and FIFA Ultime Legends have all been announced to be forever exclusives for Xbox.

    Titanfall – Timed exclusive,

    Sunset Overdrive – not a launch title
    Project Spark – Also on 360 and PC

    #23 Titanfall – Evidence please?
    Dead Rising 3 – Evidence please?
    Ryse – Evidence please?.
    Sunset Overdrive – Will launch much sooner than what 101 or Pikmin 3 did.
    Project Spark – Microsoft/Console exclusive
    Fable Legends- 2014 release = launch window game, unlike Smash bros. or Mario kart, which people even call big games, which they’re definitely not.
    Fifa – Nobody asked YOU to play it, but it’s a blockbuster best seller, that’s definitely gonna put the Xbox as the first class to play sports games.
    Forza – Wrong, there is Ryse, Dead Rising 3 and Killer Instinct. Titanfall is a launch window game that releases very shortly after release, so overall, it’s a tremendous launch lineup.

There are quite a few games that are timed exclusives and that article was just there to prove that you were wrong with the statement that there are no timed exclusives on the Xbox One.

    All of Mass Effect is on all platforms. People 3 years ago would have said that would never be the case. EA is not in the exclusive game if they find that more money can be made they will go that route. For Now MS has paid enough to EA to keep their attention but I wouldn’t hold it to them.

    Everyone here seems to be thinking this is an HD port. HD collections are straight ports of the assets from the original game, uprezzed. That’s all they do. I worked on MGSHD.

    This is a remake, they redid the game. That takes more time and money. And Wind Waker for the GameCube is $50 at the cheapest on Amazon. “I’m going to make claims without doing a simple Google search!”

    @35: Hey, I don’t own a PS3 and I would dearly love to play the InFamous and Uncharted series, as well as The Last Of Us and Beyond: Two Souls.

    In fact, those last two could well end-up being the most well-reviewed exclusives this gen. Tbh, aside from series staples Halo, Fable and Gears of War, X360 hasn’t had a meaningful exclusive since Rise of Nightmares for Kinect.

    There are both MS and Sony fanboys in here, and one isn’t better than the other. Also alot of butthurt over the Titanfall console exclusivity, which is allways funny.

    @38
    Last of Us is in the top 3 for sure, but Beyond? Heavy Rain wasn’t a huge success (metacritic 87), and Beyond looks like a QTE fest for me. Which is funny, since the Sony boys jump all over Ryse for the same reason.

    When it comes to Nintendo though, just release a next gen console allready, before it’s too late. Next E3 maybe.

    @37 – Kingdom Hearts Remix looks gorgeous. But the way I see it, $40 vs $50 is not life changing.

    Wind Waker HD is a great game by a company trying to stay alive in a world full of FPS games, realitic graphics and overall complexity. I support Nintendo’s focus on keeping family and friends together. Plus, they make fun games with personality.

    I’ve waited to buy Wii U in anticipation of a price drop, and they just announced one. So I’ll be enjoying my Wii U soon :)

    #48 EA and Capcom’s rejections contradict your wet dreams. The PS4 isn’t powerful enough to play Titanfall. Just because Mass Effect and some others turned multiplatform doesn’t mean Titanfall, Dead Rising 3 or the others will, if you want ports of content that’s been exclusive for years, then Xbox might not be for you. Personally I won’t buy a game that was available on another console 1 year ago, then I can just buy it at a much cheaper price on the previeous system it was released for and as long as you can’t manage to provide a source, this argument is over.

    That article is hilarious. Obvious bias they are forgetting quite a list for the PS4. Infamous: Second Sons, Media Molecule’s game, all the exclusive indie games.

    “just because Mass Effect and some others turned multiplatform doesn’t mean Titanfall, Dead Rising 3 or the others will..”

    Nor does it mean they won’t. Capcom and EA are multiplatform publishers. and TItanfall is not published by Microsoft so EA can do with it however they want.

    LOL Source says the person who says developers are favouring Xbox One and can’t source it.
    Says the person who says Xbox One is first class in software and can’t source it.
    Says the person who said Xbox One will launch with 20 exclusives and couldn’t properly source it.

    LOL The irony is making me laugh :P Source the above and get back to me.

    LOL wet dreams those actually happened and your the only claiming its a dream.

    There i fed you now you can troll another thread.

    Infamous is listed as number 3 under the PS4 section.

    Seriously though, stop being such fanboys and buy both consoles. They both have great exclusives, and only sticking to one and badmouthing the other simply means you are puny fanboys.

    Finally it’s proven that the PS4 is not powerful enough to run such games, now let’s see if you have any sources at all to back up your wet dreams.

    This is an argument: No ones badmouthing anything, so don’t make that assumption. Nor is anyone fanboys for disagreeing. Just buy both consoles? I’m sorry i don’t sit on a pile on cash waiting for PS4/Xbox One to launch.

    I am not being a fanboy. Zoom here is just stomping the ground and claiming his opinion as truth. He has yet to source anything. I could care less. Xbox One has nothing that interests me so I am going to the PS4. Simple as that. There is no fanboyism there.

    Really thats not sourcing what i asked.

    “LOL Source says the person who says developers (more than one) are favouring Xbox One and can’t source it.”
    “Says the person who says Xbox One is first class in software and can’t source it.”
    “Says the person who said Xbox One will launch with 20 exclusives and couldn’t properly source it.”

    The pattern is similar across many publishers, if you can’t see it keep being blinded.

    “Finally it’s proven that the PS4 is not powerful enough to run such game…” Only one game, not games.

    No its not and you can’t even source that

    Every article turns into a PS4 vs XB1 lol… What do either one of those have to do with this article? Just cheer about the system you like. Why the need to bash the other?

    People are either trying to convince themselves they are making the right choice or they don’t want competition, which will equal overpriced and medicore consoles and games.

    Sega & Nintendo’s rivalry in the 90′s was epic! It lead to arguable the best era in gaming… 16-bit. :D

    #57 You are an idiot. Again, those links you just posted only says that they have no plans to release them on other consoles, not that they difinitely are exclusive games which is the case with Titanfall and Dead Rising 3 interview, just because GTA or Mass Effect turned multiplatform doesn’t mean it’s the same case with Titanfall or Dead Rising. Rockstar isn’t the same comapny as EA or Capcom, you’re referring to other companies and you’re last link isn’t even a source, you are cherry picking it, otherwise you would’ve posted the source it originated from which is Gametrailers, but you still have failed to do that. Neither Titanfall or Dead Rising will release on PS4, that is a fact, deal with it, that’s all that needs to be said.

    ”Microsoft realized that player-hosted servers are actually holding back online gaming and that this is something that they could help solve, and ran full-speed with this idea,” he writes. So they built this powerful system to let us create all sorts of tasks that they will run for us, and it can scale up and down automatically as players come and go.” That is why Titanfall is Xbox exclusive.

    very competitive price.

    you’ll get the system (you WILL sink a few hours into miiverse alone), one of the greatest games ever, a very interesting and beautiful book about the zelda history.
    all this will keep you busy with the sytem for a good while.

    really think it’s perfectly priced like that for now.
