So, how does the typical PS3 gamer see the WiiU?

Hard to draw conclusions from this hate filled cesspool of vile posters on here or any other dedicated gaming board.

The "typical gamer" would have much different opinions

lol. So if somebody doesn't like a console, they're hate filled. Get over yourself kid. Hate to break it to you, but the "typical gamer", whatever the hell that means, would have their own opinions too. And that's all they are, opinions. Cesspool of vile posters, that's a good one. Don't take it personal, Nintendo doesn't love you.

It is Nintendo's next home console and it launched with 12 games I wanted, I had to buy one. I have no regrets about buying the console and the off screen play has been surprisingly useful and I actually miss it when I go back to my PS3.

And Miiverse has proven to be the best online community ever, not to mention the constant flood of great artwork.


12 games that aren't on the ps3 lol no.

Anyways to the topic

It's online system is horrible, controller is meh, the best games are available for ps3 and have been out longer and are cheaper, it's got very few worthwhile exclusives even announced and it's doubtful it will get next gen multiplats I don't see a reason to get it at all.

No I don't mind someone not liking a console. Gamefaqs though has a tendency to "hate" any new release whether it be a game, console, external accessory, or whatever it is. Whether it is a different system or a game on the PS3 itself.

As for typical gamer I don't think you can really define it either and I don't know exactly what the TC was meaning when he said that hence the quotations.

I think of it in more general terms as people who don't go to message boards and participate frequently. Message board posters are a sliver of the overall gaming community.

Message boards have a tendency to have a lot of people who go into topics about games that supposedly don't interest them and yet they are among the most active posters in many of those topics. I don't consider that typical at all.

And the kid retort is so cliche on here. Especially considering I'm closing in on 40. I know people think that is a popular slam on here but really it isn't. I find the majority of the time I have been gaming far longer than the the majority percentage of this board has been alive.

Lastly this has nothing to do with Nintendo or the WiiU. I don't take anything on here personally. That would be pathetic. The topic could be about anything and my answer would be the same. This place is mostly filled with hateful posters who find more enjoyment in message board putdowns than actually gaming. It has a predictable history of behavior towards anything new.

So your assumptions about it being some Nintendo defense was way off base.

i have a ps3 and a wiiu and i love it. ZombiU is my favorite by far. I plan to buy multiplatform games on wiiu if they use the off tv gameplay option, which is my favorite thing about it....well besides miiverse. Miiverse type online needs to be in EVERY new system moving forward. i cant begin to describe how it creates a sense of community over my ps3 and my 360.

anyways, im digging it a lot.

I see the wii-u as history repeated with what happened with the wii.

Third parties were on board at the start, but due to weak hardware they backed off, and it seems its happening to the wii-u as well, I also see it as Nintendo late to the party sort of how MS is with the stuff non xbox wise.

I bought a Wii after my Ps3 because of its awesome classic games...Mario, Zelda, Kirby, Smash etc etc


Wii U has massive potential, its funny to see all these kids crying about it when they haven't played it.

The new Mario game is beautiful to look at, and tons of fun to play, thats the only game I have played and I enjoyed it.

I see it as a waste of money. Why pay $400 to play the same games my PS3 currently does? There aren't any future prospects that I'm interested in either. Haven't like LoZ since A Link to the Past. Haven't liked Mario since SMB3. Never liked SSB.

Unless JRPG developers latch on and start making good games exclusively for the system, I have no reason to ever own one.
