Anyone see the Rayman Legends Wii U commercial? Whoa is that what the graphics are like in Rayman Origins?

After seeing the NFC I think this might be the thing that will attract third parties into giving support. Look at it, we all like little gimmicky game related crap whether we admit it or not. Some of us are not inclined to buy this stuff individually but what Ubisoft said before makes sense in that they said they could see a future where you buy a little toy in a game shop with a code to download the game. It keys in with what we hear today about Wii U games being availible as digital downloads at launch too and you can buy them from stores.

Companies will love the opportunity to sell us more pointless crap and people younger than us will pester their parents to buy them it too, which might drives sales of the Wii U sku. I can see NFC as being a bizarrely positive move for them.

Michaia from Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn is now a download character in Fire Emblem 3DS. Only now she has massive boobs and a see through outfit as well as massive come-to-bed eyes. lol

Project X Zone

This is how Nintendo explain their recent loss and turnaround plan:

During the last fiscal year, we were confronted with the steep appreciation of the yen, significant price drop of the Nintendo 3DS in order to make the course correction and place it back on the originally expected sales track, and the failure to launch much-anticipated titles in a timely fashion in the first half of the term. Under these circumstances, we posted an operating loss for the full year, which was the worst result since we went into business in the video game industry. We feel greatly accountable for the result as executive officers.




Today, I would like to tell you about our prospects on how Nintendo will be able to enjoy a turnaround for this fiscal year.




Here are the sales forecasts of our major hardware and software on which our financial forecasts are based for this fiscal year.



The sales numbers of the hardware and software sales for the Wii include those for the Wii U to be launched in this year-end sales season. Also, please note that the numbers of sales of the software for the Nintendo 3DS and the Wii U include those to be downloaded through the digital distribution we plan to implement in this fiscal year, but exclude the Virtual Console software or download-only software.




As for the software sales as our revenue base, we expect an increase in the sales of the Nintendo 3DS from the last fiscal year. From this fiscal term, we will be in the harvest time for the software sales of the Nintendo 3DS. However, we have a more conservative sales forecast than that of the Nintendo DS for the third year, considering the fact that the momentum of the Nintendo 3DS overseas has not reached our anticipated level, unlike the domestic market.




On the other hand, we think that the software sales of the Nintendo DS and the Wii will rather significantly decrease due to the small number of games scheduled in this fiscal year. We don’t anticipate that the software sales of the Wii U can compensate for the decrease in those of the Wii because the Wii U will be launched as late as in the holiday season and then the total unit sales of the Wii U will be limited in this fiscal year. This is one of the reasons our business performance inevitably fluctuates when we change platforms.

Europe hardware sales for 2012 so far.

Backup trailer link

WTF? Wii U controller now has IR control?

"Polygon sources familiar with the Wii U say that the tablet has a cable coming out of the bottom of it because it is a dev kit, which currently is only available wired. The wireless version of the dev kits, we're told, won't be released to developers until June."

I was thinking this but someone else wrote it and I'm lazy:

GAFsaid on Wii U NFC rayman legends:

I said it when they unveiled that the Wii U pad would use NFC: It'd be a genius move if they sold eShop titles in stores as figurines that you could collect. As a collector, I'd rather have those than game cases with DVDs, and that's the only thing (besides crazy prices, and I bet that won't happen) that would make me fully embrace Digital Distribution outside Steam.



Why sell codes to the stores when you can give them figurines? They have no choice with the 3DS, but with Wii U they should do it.



Holy crap, man. I just told my wife about this and this was something she would be totally into. Hell, if I released a game on the Wii U, that is exactly what I'd do. Just buy the little figurine, take it home, and scan it in. No codes to enter. Whoever exploits that will be doing themselves a huge favor. I'd buy the digital version just for the figure to put on the mantle.

You could probably wait till X-mas and you'd still be able to get a copy? Maybe.

Ideaman on GAF confirmed Rayman Legends Wii U before the trailer leaked so it seems he is fairly reliable as a French journo with access to Ubisoft. He just said about Wii U:

"This is NOT the final & definitive controller. The one used in this trailer isn't the "updated" model."

Polygon said the trailer actors were using devkit controllers and it was only meant as an internal video trailer.

It could get ridiculous depending on how many NFC objects are used. Maybe Nintendo will put a limit on it so publishers don't rip people off?

I can see some publishers loving the NFC on Wii U, it will give them an excuse to flog cheap crap. Anything that can boost 3rd party support is a good thing though right?

No, not at all. Imagine Call Of Duty, instead of getting the game on DVD with case and instructions you go to Gamestop and get a pair of COD Branded Night Vision goggles with an NFC chip in it. Go home and place it near the Wii U controller and the system auto connects to the internet and auto downloads your copy of the game.

Instead of many small NFC items, one larger, more valuable model.

Now imagine it for other games.

Yeah they did the same thing with the Red Steel 2 trailer. They had the same 'made for internal' purposes excuse too. It's a decent tactic though, to get attention for a game.

Shame-us went completely postal. I don't know wtf happened to that guy. lol He was once one of my best friends on Gamespot, always totally cool and kind of a voice of reason. Then he turned into a bitter angry politician and kind of started to remind me of Grammaton-Cleric. Strange.
