Thread Details

The online support is terrible on the wii u and 3ds. It is not acceptable you can't even make a party and join games with your friends. Or even chat with them. Do you think Nintendo will add party support online features to bring the system up to date or leave it with a completely broken online experience?

Well, maybe after a decade of screwing it up and seeing working examples from other companies, they'll finally wise up?

Unlikely. Nintendo just needs a new system to re-release another Ocarina of Time and a few more Smash Brothers games.

It will also have wiggle sticks with screens attached to them.

We don't need 4 simultaneous cat threads. I say things like that more to get a reaction out of you since I haven't seen you in a while. How have you been?

I am actually interested in seeing the new Zelda at some point. Or at least a WiiU remake of Skyward Sword with controller support.

Obligatory cat

The terrible online support for the wii u is a very real problem. I love how there are people that actually defend the lack of voice chat. The wii u does not even have a freaking way to make a private party chat. Are they really going to carry this bullshit over to the NX. IF they do I expect the NX will do just as poorly as the wii u.

There is nothing to crap on with PC. It has voice chat and can run everything at 1080p 60 FPS.

I hadn't even heard about the NX until seeing this thread. Interesting.

I don't think Nintendo has officially announced it since they are still hoping to get some sales out of the U. From what I have read dev units have gone out so we should see a release in a year or 2.

Nintendo is clueless. Their head guys have stated they have never played PSN or Xbox Live. Nintendo has made enough money off NES, N64, Gamecube, and Wii to make stupid decisions and lose money for decades and still be around. They have a different culture in Japan. If their CEOs screw up they're not fired like here. And since Nintendo is a family company they will continue to do stupid things for years to come. Screw them. Not getting any more of their junk.

I wasn't actually responding to you in particular but all is good. I just think every game forum should have official troll threads to prevent every other thread from being cluttered with crap. If the troll threads turn into cat threads, who cares?

IGN did a five minute rewind theater on thirteen seconds of new Zelda footage. It was journalism at its finest.

Obligatory "Nintendo sucks balls." I just wanna be kewwwwl.

They announced it existed last year at the investors meeting where they announced their mobile deal with DeNA. It was basically a "don't freak out -- we're still going to make consoles, we're not konami" announcement.

They said they'll actually say what it is in 2016. Right now, the prominent rumor is that it's a hybrid portable/console, like PS4+Vita but better. An unnamed source in a WSJ article said it has "industry leading chips." Everything else is total crap.

Also unlike the US, when their CEOs screw up, they admit it and take pay cuts. (At least, Iwata did RIP.) As opposed to the US style of bankrupt the company, give self an eight figure "bonus," then flee to the Caymans.

Nintendo has a different business model than Sony and Microsoft, and all 3 companies know way more about business than anyone here does. /thread

Nintendo, the only company in 2020 that still will not have voice chat.

Block buster knew more about business than us. Look what happened when they didn't adjust with the times.
