Bethesda seems reluctant to release Elder Scrolls on the Wii U. The Wii U pad may seem like it’s perfect for an RPG like Elder Scrolls, but Bethesda doesn’t think the Wii U will have the hardware specs to back it up. Don’t worry, I’m sure there will be a Cooking Mama game for the Wii U.
With the Wii U, Nintendo will finally be catching up with the rest of the consoles in terms of being a full entertainment hub. In addition to Nintendo socialy gimmicks, the Wii U will come bundled with Netflix, Amazon, Hulu and YouTube.
Oh, and there’s going to be a bunch of old Nintendo franchise games in HD form.
Often, Microsoft likes to hold a big presser a day or two ahead of the annual E3 convention, but this year, Nintendo got ahead of the flood of E3 floor press with a conference about the Wii U. The controller, now called the ‘Gamepad’, has been finalized, and there will be a new online service called Miiverse.
Xbox 360 and PS3 already have saved games and gamer profiles saved to the cloud, and when Nintendo launches the Wii U, it will finally come with such a feature. Congrats, Nintendo on being with the times.
