    Still isn't enough to convince to purchase a Wii U at launch. Will have to wait a year or so. Give Nintendo some time to release new useless add-ons.

    Definitely playing this game on PS3 though. Going to be amazing.

    I don't see why they'd want to launch a game that's coming out now on a different console like months away. I doubt people will really stick around for it.

    Meh.

    I'm gonna try my best to get a Wii-U as close to launch as I can because I know that there are gonna be some really good games for it a few months after, but I probably won't be touching this.

    Personally I'm really looking forward to this title, however I really feel the timeframe is off for Wii U. Unlike games that offer a solid online experience (dragon quest comes to mind) or like Ninja Gaiden 3 where the timeframe would be a couple of months at most between systems to make it acceptable, this game appears 6 months later or more.

    I think this is either a waste of effort by Rocksteady or a smart move. Because it will either fail to sell because of the saturation on other systems or will sell pretty good because everyone even forgot this game existed.

    I don't know what to think, but in any case I will not get this game. I'll be playing it on my PC.

    We'll see how this turns out.

    You guys are missing the big picture. It is simply great to hear that Nintendo finally fixing their third-party and multiplat support on the WiiU
    This gen you had to buy a Wii to play Zelda and a Xbox 360/PS3 for let's say Call Of Duty. A Wii is nice for some excellent first-party Nintendo games but (let's be honest) you're missing out on great AAA multiplatform titles like Battlefield 3, Batman AC, Skyrim and so on. If Nintendo keeps up the third party suppport they'll finally get a wide range of games on their new console. You'll be playing Skyrim and a Mario game on the same platform, how awesome would that be?
    With real third party support the "hardcore/FPS" players can get their dose of hardcore games too on the WiiU.

    Nintendo only has to get rid of the "kiddy" image and replace it with a "it's cool for everyone and it can be hardcore". It's a task that's nearly impossible to accomplish, but I really hope for Nintendo they'll succeed.

    A port is still a port though.
    I really hope the wii u is treated as next gen and doesn't just get upscaled ports.

    I'm going to buy the Wii U at launch just like the 3DS even if "IT HAS NO GAMEZ", because of nintendo game. I already done this multiple time since my snes and I never regretted this.
    As a nintendo fan, I'm not interested in that type of game like batman, and I don't think people will wait 6 month to play it either, so it's not going to sell well on Wii U and it'll be like the Wii all over again.

    It's already been said, but really, the Wii U would have to add a whole lot more to make this a worthwhile incentive. I can't really see that happening.

    the tone of the voice at first made me think that they are struggling to make it special. its different yes but not something that can pull ppl towards it or the wii u. its gonna be a real challenge.

    Then buy one. It's probably cheaper than the WiiU and you get Arkham Asylum on the same console. Considering Arkham City is for people who enjoyed Arkham Asylum most likely, odds are you'd own a console with Arkham Asylum on it so you can play Arkham City.

    Why anyone would wait around 6 months or so for a game out now on a console that'll probably cost less than the one coming out in 6 months boggles my mind.

    EDIT: Depending on who bites for the WiiU, audience wise, games that are released while the system is out should do relatively fine, if the system sells. Otherwise, porting a game that's like half a year old for it seems like an incredibly retarded move.

    But you'll be missing the entire plot and game of Arkham Asylum, which is pretty good. Only solution could be if they included it as a bonus on Arkham City for the WiiU. Even then, you're still gonna be paying $60 for a game that came out half a year ago, and odds are Arkham City will be cheaper by then on the Xbox 360/PS3.

    But hey, you're Valwin, so talking common logic to you is like shouting at a brick wall.

    Only really applies to impatient people.
    Not everyone gets games at launch anyway.

    So wait until the WiiU roles around, then you can buy a Xbox 360 or PS3 for cheaper than the WiiU (odds are), buy the game for cheaper than the WiiU version, and you can buy Arkham Asylum if you want it (it'll probably be cheaper as well).

    Then it's your fault for buying a Wii and sticking to it without investing in the wonderful world of HD gaming until Nintendo produced a HD console. The only reason to not buy a Xbox 360, PS3, or a good PC is if you don't have one or you can't afford one. If you're just trying to stick to the Wii because you're a "fanboy" and "only wants Nintendo consoles" then you are an utterly shit gamer.

    EDIT: For the record, the Wii was the first "current gen" console I bought. Then I realized that I could buy a Xbox 360 and get all these wonderful games I was missing out on. Now I can safely say the Wii doesn't hold a match to it, after thorough experience in both consoles.
