Nintendo have yet again released another trailer of Hyrule Warriors:
PS3HaX member Egg ‘n’ chips is selling some Wii U peripherals and has asked if i could mention them here, as he cannot do so on PS3HaX draconian rules regarding selling products on the forum, this is a one off and i will not be doing it again, i am in no way connected with Egg ‘n’ chips, so i bare no responsibility with any transactions you do with him, any sales that take place, you do so at your own risk, if you do not feel safe buying from him, do not do it.
These products are UK only and consist of:
- Wii U GamePad Silicon Shell, with in built stand.
- Official Nintendo Cradle & Stand.
- Official Nintendo Wii U GamePad Accessory Set.
- Sensor Bar For Wii U.
Here is part of the email he sent me so you can better grasp the situation:
these are thing i won in an auction,(they are all stock from a closed down currys outlet near me) i was only expecting a few boxes,i ended up with nearly 100 boxes so im selling on what i dont need,and i only need 1 of each really.
im selling 1 of each item together for £15, after doing a search on ebay and in tesco,i think 15 quid is a great price.
If you are interested, you can contact Egg ‘n’ chips here.
Or email him here firstname.lastname@example.org
Again, this is a one off, i will not do it again, i am no longer affiliated with PS3HaX.
Well I made a few changes around the blog, which aren’t important to most of you, but are important to me, if you do not care, you do not need to read any further as it will contain a little drama.
Firstly I am no longer a member of PS3HaX, a website I looked after for a long time, I basically kept the website alive, if it hadn’t of been for my dedication, it would have died, probably have gone my now, which means I will have more time to dedicate to WiiUHaX and attempt to bring you great news, which I will be doing on my own, at least until I find someone, trustworthy enough to help me.
The changes are basically News Writer removals and are this:
- bubba – He is an OK guy, but is a liar and extremely dishonest, taking other peoples work and releasing it without their permission, which led to a small amount of drama in the Wii U hacking scene.
- hellsing9 – The dude is a great guy and someone i consider a good friend, someone who i trust with this site, but in order to distance myself from PS3HaX, i must distance myself from him, which is not something i wanted to do, rather it is something i must do.
- Bobbybangin – Well this guy rarely posted, was never very good at posting and anything he has posted is false and bogus, because of course he is a donkey and gets his info from bubba, take the recent info about WiiUKey, it was all wrong and bogus information, which bubba passed on to Bobbybangin, so to try and stop any more false information, i have removed this thorn, who is obviously too dumb to understand when he is being fed shit from bubba. He is also a very dishonest person, one of those wolf in sheep’s clothing type of guys, who lies to your face, i blame the steroids.
Anyhow, that is the public service announcement over, if you would like to occasionally post news and are an honest person, drop me a line using the contact link and thanks for reading.
smealum has confirmed via Twitter that 7.x firmware for the 3Ds is exploitable, here is a screenshot of his tweet:
Ubisoft has been reticent about any new games coming to the Wii U beyond Watch Dogs, mostly because the company feels as if the console hasn’t tapped into a mass market of consumers, yet. Because of this, they don’t feel as if it’s worth investing into Nintendo’s console at the moment.
Nintendo Everything picked up quotes from a recent interview in MCV’s latest issue, where they spoke with Ubisoft’s CEO Yves Guillemot and their European head, Alan Corre.
One of the things that popped up in the topic was in relation to Ubisoft’s support for the Wii U – as some of you know, Electronic Arts is one of the top publishers who hasbasically abandoned Nintendo at this point. Guillemot was a little less averse to Nintendo’s console and cited that they needed to boost up the mass market appeal of the device first…
“If Wii U’s sales continue to multiply, it will quickly come to a mass market. We need the sales to increase so it becomes more mass market, and then we will have the volume we need to justify big marketing campaigns and TV marketing.
“Smash Bros. has always been a big, big property for Nintendo and for gamers. We all know that there are lots of Nintendo fans that are waiting for these big games. When I speak to the fans that come to E3, 90 percent of them are crazy Nintendo fans. They really love Nintendo and the games they do. If they can quickly come and buy a Wii U, it would be good.”
The concept of that seems quite weird, as a lot of gamers questioned how they could mention that the Wii U needs to reach a mass market when the Xbox One is still trailing behind in third-place and Ubisoft continues to show a lot of support for the system?
The reality is that the Wii U still has a 2 million SKU lead on Microsoft’s console, so talk about install base and sales seems completely and entirely moot. That’s not to mention that if a game is good and receives proper marketing, it will sell on the Wii U, as proven with Mario Kart 8′s tremendous performance throughout June in North America andJapan.
One user commented on the Nintendo Everything post, saying…
“You could argue that because of the sales ilustrated above they are justified in their decision to not put out games for Wii U, but when you take into account the games they have released were post-poned, canceled, given less content, or neglected by them. The only people at fault here are themselves.”
Watch Dogs is coming for the Wii U, but it was delayed to the holiday season. It’s not expected to sell as much as the PS4 or Xbox One versions due to the long delay and the fact that it’ll be competing with hard hitting Nintendo titles such as Hyrule Warriors, Bayonetta 2 and Super Smash Bros.
Even still, Alan Corre commented that Nintendo is doing great things in the marketplace, saying…
“I was very happy to see Nintendo doing well with their E3 conference and unveil the new open-world Zelda, Miyamoto is back creating things, and that’s excellent for the industry. Smash Bros. and Mario Maker – these concepts are second to none. We are really happy to see that Nintendo has a lot of good franchises, because we feel that it still has a love affair with families, and we really need the living room to offer possibilities to families to play games.”
Much like EA, there are no new games on the horizon for the Wii U from Ubisoft, for now. The company does have two exclusive games waiting in the wings; as mentioned, they won’t release anything else for the Wii U with a big marketing push until the console’s install base hits mass market appeal.
