Nintendo has one primary goal in mind “bring families together.”
I was watching one video on the Wii U‘s board gaming. Now isn’t this quite interesting? We are going to be able to play chess or backgammon on the kitchen table with a handheld device?
Nintendo is genius! they take a console called the “GameCube,” keep the exact same graphics chip-set and create a system called the “Wii” that allows people to interact with each other, playing games standing up, getting in shape, and now they are going to allow us to play board games (among a lot of other things).
Nintendo cannot stop revolutionizing the industry of how we ,as a family, play together.Their games don’t depreciate in value, because when you’re tired of playing the same old drama you can cool off and play “Mario Kart.” Their games do not depreciate, they become nostalgic.
Nintendo has a master, universal, multi-million dollar plan, and that is bringing us together. This has not only brought an older audience to try playing games, but it has brought on many copy cats too. If anyone thinks that the Kinect is a different idea, they’re wrong. The Xbox wants a piece of the market and so did Playstation with their little wand thingy… What happened to that?
Did you know? I just read that Microsoft believes that the Wii U is going to have the same specs (if not more powerful) as the Xbox 360… This seems hard to believe, but Nintendo never fails to amaze us as Gamers.
The price is currently not announced yet. Other news articles are speculating that it’s going to be between $150 and $200. (I’m thinking around $300)
If this really has the power of the 360 then it will put the PS Vita to shame. Why wouldn’t Nintendo want to make more money? Why would they put a price tag on something they know we’re going to buy?
Keep us posted – If anyone knows how much this futuristic gaming technology is going to be? Do not hesitate to tell us reply and tell us what you think…
I can’t wait till we could all walk into a Virtual Reality room together… Imagine Link vs Mario on the “Virtual Wii…”
