I don't know why Nintendo always takes the route of weak systems and family entertainment. They can't make it a strong system and appease families? In that picture, their shorts aren't even moving like they do on REAL consoles. The WiiU is worse than most gaming PCs.

What are you talking about, the fact that the Wii U doesn't have the power that most gaming PCs have? The WiiU is supposed to be a Next Gen console, 360 and PS3 are the current gen. Wii U is even below current graphics. And I'm pretty sure there *aren't any gaming PC's more powerful than the next XBox and PS4.

Wii U is a brand new system and must not be judged on launch titles where they did not fully begin to take advantage of and understand the hardware just yet..

Maybe the shorts aren't moving because it is a picture.



Seriously though, let's keep the comments on the game. The console has nothing to do with it. I'm sure there will be people buying it. I'm curious as to how the controls translate on that mammoth controller and how well it will play in the controller's screen.

PC Gaming will always be in front of console gaming in graphics. The discovered technology is the same, but the console has a standard hardware for everyone, while PCs can go way over the top. People develop insanely fast devices for PCs.

You can tell they won't move in gameplay because of how round the shorts appear and they don't sit properly.

Generally, PC's won't be more powerful until a few months after the next gen consoles are released.

Oh boy....

Once the next Xbox and PS4 comes out you think the PC will just stop pushing their limits? Nvidia and ATI will be pushing even more powerful cards and will make the next gen consoles obsolete in a couple of months.

OT: My brother will be getting the WiiU and I think he will be getting 2k with that zombie game. Should be a fun weekend at his place.

Did you even read my last post?
 
# 13 Goffs @ 11/16/12 02:18 PM
Posted the same time but I'm going to say that there will be nothing next gen about the next consoles. Their idea of next gen will be anti aliasing.
 
# 14 bigsmallwood @ 11/16/12 05:13 PM
I think NBA 2K13 will be a gem for Wii U...moving shorts and all...cannot wait to get my hands on it Sunday morning

Now, do you think next gen consoles will have 3.4 maybe even 4 GHz Quad or even more Core processors with 6 to 8 GB of RAM and like have GTA IV Realism Mod Graphics? (ex. iCEnhancer.) No. That's not gonna happen until the Gen after that. PC WILL ALWAYS be 1 generation ahead in Speed, Graphics, etc. since there's at least 1 newly created PC everyday. Oppose to a new console released everyday.

Also, lets not judge Graphics yet until 5 years of life and/or 3 years of competition with MS/Sony. You think CoD 2 on 360 looked like Black Ops II or Madden 06 looked like Madden 13? No, just wait til the console is already a year old then judge.

On Topic: games looks nice but I wonder like Pared on how the game controls.... Would I have to buy a Pro Controller to play without weirdness or what? I also hope there's some roster makers who will also work with 2K on Nintendo. Not getting now since I got 360, but 2K14 and Wii U gets me wondering....

I really hope Nintendo can pull through with realistic simulation sports games on this system. I've always been a Nintendo guy but I switched to more of a Sony guy since around 2007 because Ninteno has been weak in sports simulation games.

dude you are funny...you must be new to gaming if you think next gen is going to jump 5 to 6 gens to get ahead of pc gaming power

Someone at work said smart phone gaming will make PC gaming obsolete in next 5 years..

His argument was that he can bluetooth PS3 controller to his galaxy phone and output video to TV already... while playing mobile games that was released 10 years ago on consoles and PC. Some people think PC development will suddenly stop while other devices are being upgraded. Haha
