I see post here & there about Nintendo & Wii U having a hard time. there failing. perhaps Microsoft is paying them so say that. i simply don't think Nintendo is having any dilemma at the moment tho... we have games like lego city, black ops 2, assassin's creed, injustice, monster hunter, resident evil revelations, need for speed, & games like watch dogs, Mario kart 8, smash bros 4 Wii U, Bayonetta 2, deus ex, x, Project cars, Mario & Zelda games & cod ghost u is coming (& don't you say it isn't, tell me how many cod games were released in the past on Nintendo consoles without being announced.) yea i thought so. anyway if i was in Nintendo's main chair this is how i would run things. Wii u: 1. Firmware Update: Optional stuff - this firmware update would remove the Wii U gamepad as this always connected controller give options to use controller pro & other controllers as main controller without turning on gamepad. would reserve lots of battery. DVD/Blueray - this FW update would also include DVD/ Blueray playback. on the Wii DVD play was possible, through homebrew. someone just doesn't want it done... Distance - also this firmware would increase the distance of controllers if possible. Friend Comes Over - also this update allows ability to log into friends console with NNID if there in your friend list atleast. Nintendo should heed what's happening to Microsoft with the restriction thing. Cloud is a better way of doing this imagine if there in your friend list, you can log in temporarily & temporarily use your save data from your console via cloud. or copying game saves to cloud to use of friends console temporarily only if your console is off tho. or you could take an SD card to friends place & temporarily use your saves. SD card as Wii u mode storage also - this isn't because of storage tho. i have plenty of internal storage on my 32GB wii u tho i download lots. but i 1st thought the SD card storage was for wii u mode also, why not tho? i have a 32GB class 10 card in there but its only limited to Wii mode which i don't see even taking up half of that. & i own loads of Wii games, including Wiiwares. especially when my Wii Virtual Console games start moving to Wii U VC, gonna upgrade those & just have all my save data's & Wiiware. with that being said tho why not unify Wii modes 512MB 512MB memory & the Wii u modes 32GB? why separate partitions? 2. Hardware releases: New Wii u Gamepad - release a new wii u gamepad pro with back facing camera for AR, higher resolution cameras, better battery, multi-touch, longer signal distance & gorilla glass. WiiMote on/off Switch - add a on & off switch to Wiimotes. im tired of F%$# bumping into a Wiimote or nephew keeps hitting a controller pro while im on black ops 2. -.- would also save battery my Wiimotes are always usually dead when i take my console to friends placve because buttons press themselves in my bag. Virtual DDR3 - i don't think we seen Wii U full potential yet or even half, devs seem to look past trying to push it for some reason but for those that do. in the past consoles like N64 & DS had expandable ram. what if a USB expandable virtual ram DDR3 type deal was made? expanding the ram to like 8GB total. or atleast 6GB. i mean the Wii U is the only next gen console with 4x UPS ports that is. 3. i see they were looking into cloud based GPGPU. hmm 4. local media app - i know Wii U is a gaming console 1st & other stuff 2nd but what bad would that be? Wii had photo channel, it was limited to JPEG, & had MP3 only then after update MP4. & AVI videos i think. with Wii u would be perfect they could just make 1 channel media channel. a file browser for pics, videos, music, ect. like any other browser on pc or android. also where did the idea to use media in games go? 2 games on Wii used music on SD card during gameplay (excitetruck). after that why did it stop? i would make more. imagine jamming to your own tunes during Smash Bros 4 Wii U & 3DS. 5. Cross Platform Multiplayer - i would make every game cross platform multiplayer. Smash Bros 4 should be. why isnt it? its possible with monster hunter Wii U & 3DS. bring it to Sonic Lost Worlds, Resident Evil Revelations, SmashBros. 6. Open a New Studio - this one may be a stretch but hear me out, i know we have retro studio, & games like Zelda, Metroid. Nintendo gamers get older over time some of us are in 20's now. what is Nintendo released a studio specifically for releasing rated m games? for instance they ant to release a rated M Metroid orZelda, they can use the Ocerina of time style zelda(not that i think its bad) as they do let this mature studio make the new nextgen zelda. this way they can still make the games they make but have something for the older audience & also fill the gap when companies like EA/DICE, & a few others want to leave Nintendo's console out. hmm anything i miss? this was typed at like 5am -.- heading to work will fix typos later.
