The recent blog, Peace in the Era of Call of Duty  really made me think about war games that dig deeper than simply a kill streak reward. The first game that came to mind was Spec-Ops: The Line and although I haven’t played it, I began to wonder if it did the war genre as...

Nintendo Abandoning Wii For 3DS?

Posted on Friday, January 7 @ 12:49:13 Eastern by


According to Gamestop's release lists for Nintendo Wii, the lineup is as thin as Paper Mario. Only 21 titles have been slated this year, and out of those, only 5 are not multiplatform titles that are received much better as their Xbox 360 and PS3 counterparts: Centipede, The Conduit 2, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, Mario Sports Mix, and Wicked Monster Blast!.

The clear, shining beacons of hope are of course Skyward Sword (June 2nd) and Mario Sports Mix (February 2nd). And well, that's about it.

Considering the incredible hype and excitement for their 3DS, which arrives this March, it's almost obvious that Nintendo would spend their time and money in the upbringing of their fledgling device and their even greater dominance over the handheld market. With an onslaught of 3DS titles on their way and at least ten of them already announced as launch titles, it would seem that Nintendo just doesn't care so much about playing with their Wii anymore. (So much is going on with the 3DS that you can't even pre-order any 3DS titles at GameStop yet. Get on that, Nintendo!)

The hope, though, is that Nintendo will announce a lineup of new holiday titles at GDC or E3 this year, as they have done in the past. But right now, it seems that Nintendo is much more concerned about their baby-to-be than the child they already have.
