  • Will the Nintendo Switch be the company's last console?

    So far, the Wii was the one that boosted Nintendo uphill. Everyone knows the Wii U was a failure, I think mainly because of lack of variety of games.

    So far, the Wii was the one that boosted Nintendo uphill. Everyone knows the Wii U was a failure, I think mainly because of lack of variety of games. The Nintendo Switch is doing pretty well so far, but they still need to compete with Microsoft and Sony. Can the Switch be more successful than the original Wii? Or maybe the company should focus more on mobile gaming (?). Mario Run didn't do much because everyone didn't want to pay the $10. They are supposed to be releasing a new Zelda game; hopefully they'll know better this time. Anyways, what does anyone think about this? Will Nintendo make it through the gaming industry?

  • Does Japanese Wii work with American TV?

    Best answer: Despite regional restrictions & power differences (Japan runs at 100v, US runs at 120v... so there may need a step-down converter required to avoid issues), the Japanese Wii will work on US TV's with minimal issues.

    Best answer: Despite regional restrictions & power differences (Japan runs at 100v, US runs at 120v... so there may need a step-down converter required to avoid issues), the Japanese Wii will work on US TV's with minimal issues.

    Both US (North America) & Japan run on the NTSC analog standard, but there's only a small difference in black levels... so you might need to make a small tweak in brightness & contrast to compensate, but that's it. Even the ATSC digital standard (which current HDTV's utilize) are 100% backwards compatible with all analog standards (NTSC, PAL & SECAM).


    Hope this helps!

  • Did Nintendo make a mistake by replacing Wii U with the Switch?

    I'm not really sure what Nintendo was thinking they already had a bunch of portable systems called the 3DS. I've seen the specs for the system it's pretty weak compared to PS4 and Xbox One and even the memory is less and they use tiny SD cards versus blu-ray disks. I hardly see a difference between Wii... show more

I've seen the specs for the system it's pretty weak compared to PS4 and Xbox One and even the memory is less and they use tiny SD cards versus blu-ray disks. I hardly see a difference between Wii and Wii U, but I think if this is Nintendo's answer for a next-gen console then they might lose a lot of customers, and they just discontinued Wii U.

  • Should i buy an xbox, ps4, or wii u?

    Best answer: Pretty much, find the games you want to play then buy the system that can play them. But as a note, Wii U has one game left to come out: Zelda. If you are OK with playing games from the past 4 years, then go ahead. Nintendo does have a new system coming out called the Nintendo Switch, which will also have Zelda,... show more
    Best answer: Pretty much, find the games you want to play then buy the system that can play them. But as a note, Wii U has one game left to come out: Zelda. If you are OK with playing games from the past 4 years, then go ahead.

    Nintendo does have a new system coming out called the Nintendo Switch, which will also have Zelda, updated version and sequels of popular Wii U titles, plus new content coming within the next many years.

    The other two will surely have many years to go, in addition to the 3-year back catalog that exists for each. XBO will get a new generation this fall with "Project Scorpio", but Microsoft promises that all XBO content will be playable on it. PS4 just released an upgraded "Pro", so while we likely won't see a PS5 for at least 3 years to come, puts PS4 at mid-generation.

  • Wii games using computer?

    Best answer: While it's possible to play Wii titles on your PC, you will need a fairly powerful 64-bit PC to pull it off. If you can run GTA V on your PC at reasonable speeds (30 fps or higher on default settings or better), you're probably OK.

    Best answer: While it's possible to play Wii titles on your PC, you will need a fairly powerful 64-bit PC to pull it off. If you can run GTA V on your PC at reasonable speeds (30 fps or higher on default settings or better), you're probably OK.

    Dolphin ( http://www.dolphin-emu.org ) is the most well known Gamecube / Wii emulator online as it has a pretty high compatibility rating (~95% working... although it's playable rating is closer to ~85%). Assuming the game doesn't require any motion controls, you're pretty much set. Although you can your bases with a Bluetooth adapter (to connect an actual Wiimote to your PC), A wireless sensor bar & Glovepie for a more accurate experience.

    Dolphin ideally wants to use ISO's of game discs for performance purposes, since most computers nowadays are not including an optical drive (like a DVD-ROM, which the Wii game discs are based on) as standard equipment. However, you can find tools to make your own game ISO's & even WBFS (Wii Back-up File System) format... which is essentially a "scrubbed ISO" (an ISO that removes all the "garbage data", leaving just the working game code intact) from your computer or a modded Wii.

    I'm not going to get into the legal mumbo-jumbo (with copyrights & fair use policy... most of us know the drill & the pitfalls), but it IS possible to do so & even crank out HD quality graphics (720p & 1080p. 4K is theoretically possible), depending on your PC's specs.
