All About legoislandfan
Ash kicks ass!
Hi I'm legoislandfan and I have a rubbish user name which I chose when I was 11!
With that out of the way, I'm an aspiring animator and musician with a huge interest in video games. My favorite game franchises include Metal Gear, Street Fighter and everything Nintendo related!
I'm also an equally huge fan of film and rock music!
I have a Wii, DSi, 3DS, Gamecube, N64 and a GBA SP. I also play some games on PC and was once the proud owner of a PS2 until it broke. I plan to buy a replacement...sometime...
Recently, there seems to have been just as many people preaching that the Wii U will succeed as there have been people marking it as Nintendo's death in the console market.
Of course, as many people have already pointed out, the sales of the Wii U will pick up when more games are released because, as the 3DS has proved recently, software sells hardware when it comes to the games industry.
However, even with this optimistic outlook, I can't help but feel that the Wii U may not hit the dizzying sales heights that it's predecessor did and continues to do. This is because the console simply lacks the high level of innovation and simplicity that attracted so many people who had never even played a video game before Wii Sports to purchase a Wii and for this reason I can't see the Wii U racking up 90 million plus sales in it's lifespan.
Still, I belive that the system will go on to sell in big numbers and there's no chance that the outcome that sees Nintendo ditching the console market will come true any time soon. Once Nintendo start bringing out the next entries in their biggest franchises, sales will shoot up as many Nintendo fans who have yet to take the plunge due to lack of games will make the purchase. And lets not forget the fact that the Wii U is an awesome system with lots of great features which will come in to their own in the near future when they have more users.
For the Wii U, I see a bright future!
I've just finished working on the first episode of my new YouTube series, 'The Games That Time Forgot' which takes a look at cancelled video games throughout history. The first episode deals with the 'Ultra 64' port of the classic fighter, Killer Instinct. It would mean a lot to me if you were to check it out and leave and comment with your thoughts. Thanks.
Kid Icarus fans rejoice because AR Card promo packs can be ordered through Club Nintendo. 250 stars will get you two packs. However, i heard these packs are not yet on the North American Club Nintendo. But in the mean time you could watch my pack opening video...
