E3 is a time for a lot of huffery and puffery about video games, much of which turns out to be true — just not all of it.
The bluster is biggest when a new console is being launched. Promises are made or at least implied. Then the system comes out. So. The Wii U. It just came out. Let’s rewind to the Nintendo press conference of E3 2011. During that conference, Nintendo showed the Wii U for the first time, explained the system’s bizarre controller and even got 10 prominent people who make games to praise the GamePad.
Who were these people and what did they deliver?
You can watch the video above, as it aired during Nintendo’s conference.
Or you can read the list below. Each person gets a ‘Yes’ next to them if they announced or released a Wii U game. They get a “No” if they did not.

  • Peter Moore, EA. Yes (EA released Madden, FIFA, and Mass Effect for Wii U)
  • Karthik Bala, Vicarious Visions. Yes (VV developed the Wii U version of Skylanders Giants)
  • Danny Bilson, THQ. Yes (A post-Bilson THQ put out Darksiders 2 for launch.)
  • Yves Guillemot, Ubisoft. Yes (Weird asterisk on this one: He promised Assassin’s Creed and Ghost Recon Online. The latter is MIA. But Ubi did deliver ZombiU, Rabbids Land and Just Dance 4 to complement ACIII.)
  • Martin Tremblay, WBIE. Yes (Warner Brothers released Batman Arkham City and the next guy’s game on launch day.)
  • Jeremiah Slaczka, 5th Cell, Yes (This occasional Kotaku columnist’s studio released Scribblenauts Unlimited for Wii U.)
  • Katsuhiro Harada, Namco Bandai. Yes (Namco released Tekken Tag Tournament 2 and Tank Tank Tank for Wii U)
  • Ken Levine, Irrational. No (Odd? A month later he told IGN that his BioShock Infinite studio had “no plans to do any games for that platform.” BioShock Infinite comes out in February for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC, but Nintendo themselves can’t yet explain why it’s not announced (coming?) to Wii U. I reached out to a PR rep for any comment and no update was to be had. Oh well.)
  • Warren Spector, Junction Point. Yes (His team’s Epic Mickey 2 came out for Wii U on launch day.)
  • Frank Gibeau, EA. Yes (See Peter Moore.)
Nine out of 10. So close to perfection!

I guess it is to be expected.

So a Nintendo aired a video during a Nintendo conference with game creators praising Nintendo's new console? Wow.. I am going to look for some MS and Sony videos that they created showing creators who hated their console. Compl3x you have constantly shown your dislike of the Wii U, I think everyone gets it... but you are certainly grasping at straws at this latest "news piece".. yes you didnt write it.. but you re-posted it here. I wish you the best on whichever console you support/play.

Nintendo criticism is lack of 3rd party support for there console's. With the Wii U there heavily promoting all the 3rd party support (and 3rd party games) to show they have it.

Well, you have a Sony character as your avatar and I have seen you post a lot of negative things against other consoles, so I am going to guess that you don't like the Wii U and that you are a Sony fan. Amirite?

So it just so happens the articles you post are never anything positive towards the Wii u? I never called you a fanboy..but just your comments show a dislike of the Wii u.. Just read a comment in a vita thread where you found it amusing that the ps3 and Xbox outsold the Wii u on launch week..
You also posted the article about the Wii u and the network Id being tied to the console.
And just one more since I don't want to put anymore EFFORT into this but you also posted the 5gb update bricking systems
You remind me of someone who used to love posting in the Sony forum... Hmmmm...what do you know that's where you are most active. Sorry for being an imbecile.


Most active != fanboy. Let's see... Oh, you're most active in Microsoft Console... And your avatar is one of those 360 avatars! Fanboy!? You obviously are based on this irrefutable evidence!

I'm actually buying a Wii U, probably mid-next year or after the first hardware revision if I can hold off that long. I've mentioned I intended on buying a WiiU in other topics. Why would I buy something I dislike?

The Network ID is tied to the console. It's fact. Some people check these forums before they purchase things, they might wish to know that.

The 5GB topic was innaccurate. Some douche posted it on twitter which Kotaku picked up. I admit I should have added the "rumour" tag to it. I was in error.

You are aware you're starting to sound like a fanboy vigoriously defending a console against some perceived prejudice, right?


Here is a list of my posts defending Ninty or talking about purchasing a WiiU:

You will find some negative comments from me, but I don't always criticise Nintendo.

Well, you have a Sony character as your avatar and I have seen you post a lot of negative things against other consoles, so I am going to guess that you don't like the Wii U and that you are a Sony fan. Amirite?


What "lot of things" have you seen me post negatively? And even if I do, so what? Why do I have to be completely fair and balanced about my opinions? If I make a claim which is false, tell me, and I will acknowledge and correct it. I have no problem admitting when I'm wrong.



Everyone is still wecome to post stories they want to about Nintendo/WiiU if they think I am too negative.
