Microsoft might have to worry about the Xbox One competing with the Wii U soon

#1PhaseBlackPosted 5/3/2014 9:36:26 AM
The Xbox One has been locked in a brutal struggle with the PS4 but Mario Kart 8 is getting tons of buzz, which is rather surprising given the state of the Wii U.

So far the Wii U has been no competition at all, but how do you think it will affect the Xbox One if it has to go against both the PS4 and a reinvigorated Wii U? I just think MS could end up getting blindsided since the Wii U is much cheaper and it's getting both Mario Kart and Smash Bros. this year.

There is your answer why Mario Kart 8 is getting the hype, the WiiU has a lack of games right now and that is why the console isn't selling very well in it's second year.

Demons Souls is getting hype because of a lack of AAA games on PS4. Titanfall got it's hype for the same reason. Now it is the WiiU's turn. I'm not understanding how you can spin this as a negative for Microsoft, why not see it as a positive that gamer's are getting more games?

That reminds me, that new Mario Kart game has a **** roster, Double Dash probably was the most creative and fun, along with a great roster.

Historically Mario Kart has always done extremely well.

The roster on Mario Kart doesn't bother me because the characters are usually grouped into 3 classes so it just comes down to preference, now the roster on Smash Bros can make or break that game for me.

But what if you are not a Nintendo franchise fan and want to play more of a varied selection of games in a good time frame?

Nintendo titles are slow coming and a lot of devs are not even bothering to put games on the console... I doubt Microsoft is even a little bit scared of Nintendo.

Face it, Nintendo is stuck in the past and are slow to learn, they have an under powered console with a very archaic online system.

If you are enjoying the console that is great, that what a console is for, there is no need to be here talking about the WiiU on the Xbox One board, go there and talk about the game.

He must be talking about Project Beast, the PS4 exclusive from the Demon's Souls and Dark Souls developers
