Ubisoft says Zombi U wasn’t profitable, no sequel planned

zombiu-1

Today Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot revealed that the company’s Wii U exclusive title Zombi U was not a profitable game for the company. He stated that the poor performance of Zombi U is the reason why Rayman Legends will be released as a multi-platform title.

It’s sad to see such a great company that is supporting the Wii U as well as it is not able to turn a profit on their release titles, but it does explain why third party companies are quickly dropping support for the Wii U.

“We must find a way to ensure the creativity of those games could have a big enough audience. We hope it will take off. At the moment, we’ve said ‘let’s do through Christmas and see where we are from there.”

With statements like this, this year’s Christmas performance of the Wii U will be one of the most vital in Nintendo’s history.

  • gamesplayswill

    The game was good but after an hour your like “meh”.

    • Christopher Acuna

      I guess….if you spent that hour dieing repeatedly lol. The best thing, IMO, about this game was trying to make it through to the end without dieing. I got far into the game and every zombie skirmish was intense, but I flubbed and accidentally shot one of the scuba zombie oxygen tanks and it killed me lol. Never had I been so bummed after dieing in a video game. Not only was it a LONG trek back to my original character but there were still at least 5 other zombies there waiting for me a long with my own lol.

      • Adrian

        Yes, I remember every death because dying is so significant in that game and you make it such a strict goal NOT to die. I played through twice, My first playthrough I died 8 times (5 of which were at the ….well to not spoil…the place with “happy music”). My second playthrough I died twice. Once I got stuck against a ladder, and the other the freakin gas zombie in the pitch black sewer. ZombiU was the first time in sooo long that I was so scared to let my character die.

      • BLACKendTiamat

        dying in zombiu and diablo 2 on hardcore was sad moments in gaming for me. i felt like a part of me died as well lol.

        lvl 83 druid act 4, difficulty Hell.

        i shutter thinking about to beginning a game of zombiu on survival difficulty.

        died 4 times in normal thus far. my character now is at like 8k score. im trying my hardest to keep him alive lol.

        the elementary school boss scared the shit out of us when i beat it. trying to be as vague as possible here to prevent spoilers. anyone who has played and got that far should know what im talking about.

    • YayGs

      For me it was more like half and hour. It was pretty slow and it seemed to keep that pace throughout the entire game. The best part of the game for me was getting the Silenced pistol and then the crossbow shortly after. The game’s concept was great but it’s execution was.. well, just not good enough. I was forcing myself to play it more but after a few weeks I finally just got rid of it.

  • Guest

    I hope that sequel will attract more consumers,and game will be fun.

    • http://about.me/overlordror Ashley King

      There’s not going to be a sequel.

      • Nintedward

        A shame really , the game and its gameplay formula had the potential to be the best in its class. But the low production value spoiled it a bit.

        The game is a 7.5/10 at best. Lost of things in the game were awesome , some of them buggy and terrible!

    • Nintendo Hater

      Sequel will come, don’t worry PS3/Xbox 360 will save this game…

    • Nintendo Hater

      Once again, Nintendo fails 3rd party developers

    • Nintendo Hater

      I Hate Nintendo with such great passion love to see them fail…

  • Archiq09

    no ZombiU 2?Go make a Red Steel 3!

    • D.M.T

      Ubisoft ignored Wii U at E3. Do you really think they are gonna make Red Steel 3 anytime soon?

      • Nintendo Hater

        Ubisoft has every reason hate Wii U. the itself is Trash

        • iCold

          Ignore(Look at his name)

  • Billy_Perry

    This is very bad, if Nintendo can’t make 3rd party games profitable on their console, then they won’t receive any 3rd party support, and the console will be only Nintendo, for a third time.

    Although, I would suspect that Nintendo hasn’t made a profit on any of their Wii U games either if I’m honest. Their highest selling Wii U game was NSMBU so maybe that was able to break even, but even then, I think they won’t have made a profit, or if they have not very significant one.

    I think this situation can be rectified if they sell more units to the hardcore audience over the coming months and the Christmas season. However, they will only do this with intense marketing, and at the moment, they are failing to do this big time. Come on Nintendo, show us what you can do! :)

    • PS4/WiiU

      NSMBU got 2 million in sales and Nintendo lan d got 2.1 million. So, they are making profits

      • Billy_Perry

        Huh, I though NSMBU sold more than Nintendo Land? Well even if it didn’t, around 2 million units, is not enough to really turn a profit. For a new IP such as Nintendo Land, 2 million is no where near enough, and for a seaquel like NSMBU where they have pretty much perfected the genre and formula, 2 million is around the break even point.
        They are making small profits if any.

        • Fred

          Do you not realize that NSMBU and Nintendo Land will continue to sell for years. Just because they sold 2 million in the first 6 months doesn’t mean they won’t continue to sell. Mario Galaxy is still sitting on store shelves. Both of those games will surpass 10 million when everything is said and done.

        • PS4/WiiU

          I don’t really know how they spend their money so I can’t really tell if you’re right or wrong, but if you want to check the sales, you can just go on vgchartz

    • DemonRoach

      Nintendo is profitable. The issue here is that the game system is becoming Nintendo only…and as we all know, Nintendo only games are geared towards 5-12 year old. People don’t want 2 systems, they want 1 system that can play most games, and Nintendo is not going to be that system this generation.

      • Billy_Perry

        Nintendo does not make games at 5-12 year olds, I’m 18 and love Nintendo games.
        And as a company Nintendo is profitable but only because of smart investments. However, the Wii U as a console, and its games, are not profitable, I suspect Nintendo Wii U games aren’t profitable.

        • Fred

          I’m 28 and I LOVE nintendo’s games

          • Kaihaku

            I’m…even older than that…and I still love Nintendo’s games.

      • Adrian

        I actually agree with you in that Nintendo’s target audience is the preteen demographic. Not to say that teens and post teens won’t enjoy the games too.

      • Fred

        Obviously Nintendo only isn’t Ideal, but to me it’s also not the end of the world. If I look at the games I own from Last Gen (PS3 and Wii) over 90% of them were published by Nintendo so Nintendo only would have made a small difference to me.

  • kenny Johnson

    That’s too bad for fans. I played the demo and didn’t care for it so no loss for me.

  • JB

    Man that sucks, because I thought Zombie U was awesome! It was definitely an unique game deserving of a sequel. Hopefully they will reconsider one the install base is larger.

    • Nintedward

      I liked ZombiU a lot , although it could of been a lot better. You got the sense it was rushed and low budget. E3 2011 it was Killer freaks from out of space , E3 2012 it was ZombiU. A game that took 1 year to make couldn’t of been that high budget really lol….

      The game got some really bad reviews although averaged I think a 77/100 on Metacritic , which is the sort of score which will turn away a few potential buyers. The Game sold about 400K overall pretty much just in US and EU which I think is decent. Compare Insomniacs Fuse which sold about 100K on 2 Huge platforms and that puts things into perspective.

      And also didn’t Ubisoft say they were happy with the sales of their launch titles and they have faith in the system ? Their words are back and fourth at the moment. I wish these devs would have a little bit more faith , I know Wiiu sales have been sluggish and pretty bad as of late , but THERE IS HUGE GAMES coming right in the near future. And Wiiu will become a platform that they can make a bit of money from on the side.

      • Bob Charlie

        Since I have to wait until Aug 4, I want frequent updates on Pikmin 3 starting the 26th! ¦)

        • Nintedward

          Yes you will get bredrin!!! Do I have your NNID , Bob ?

      • Lethal_Doze

        You call taking one of the worst selling games this generation and compare it to ZombieU a perspective?

      • Magnus Eriksson

        Hope sales takes up and that Ubi reconsider a second ZU. The game deserves it…

      • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

        It’s like NONE of them saw what happened with the 3DS. The EXACT same thing is happening.

        • Magnus Eriksson

          Not exact. 3DS took up, WiiU did not.

          • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

            I’ve seen you around. Eat a dick

          • David Porter

            In the absence of a capable retort, you choose to insult the guy.

            Brilliant.

          • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

            capable retorts dont do shit against trolls

          • Magnus Eriksson

            Its not trolling to point out that you got the picture wrong. Nintendo was able to turn sales with 3ds but unable to do so on WiiU. That makes the two situations unlike each others. At this time a comparison of WiiU with VirtualBoy would be more in the right alley.

          • D.M.T

            You can’t say that when Wii U’s biggest games haven’t been released yet. You are judging the Wii U too soon.

          • Magnus Eriksson

            Now listen here friend. Its really not I who judge. My only investment in Wii U was the 250$ console 500 US$ in games and about 500 US$ in downloadable stuff. Thats about 1250 US$ in total. I want my WiiU to do well, but OTHERS than me, who could invest millions of dollars into it is reluctant to do so. That is the third parties. These are the guys who judges it, im just a gamer who is frustrated because I would like the situation of my console of choice would be different.

          • D.M.T

            Which is why i blame 3rd parties, they are guilty as well of Wii U’s struggles. I understand your frustration Magnus, I really do.

          • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

            you’re just a huge pessimist who always does this crap. The 3DS took longer than this to turn around. Do your research

          • David Porter

            He wasn’t trolling with that comment. He made a (debatable) point. YOU’RE the one acting like a dick.

          • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

            You havent seen this guy around the site before

          • Magnus Eriksson

            You should really be ashamed of yourself!

      • SH*TBLOCK

        You are right Nintendward, ZombiU sold 460,000 hard copies and who knows how many digital so far which can increase the number I am going to give out. At just $50.00 (which we know many were bought at full price) the gross price is at $23 million dollars, so lets low-ball it at $20 and high-ball it $25 million dollars gross is what this game has made Ubisoft from just being an WiiU exclusive. Now we know the game wasn’t produced as/with a triple-A title budget but I will give them a cap of $10 million to make this game which I think is way more than it was really made for…BUT that still gives them at least $10 million back in profit, so why would they say this? Because it didn’t make as much as other titles for them, it sure made more money than any other game they have brought to the U yet. Also I am sure that if they made the sequel even more U owners would buy that game. Are they getting greedy or just want to stop making games for the U like other 3rd party Developers have?

        • Chris Hamilton

          The average game costs over 20 million to make. At $60 – $10 licence fee for nintendo – $10 packing and shipping = $40 per game × 500000 = 20 million.
          the break even point for a average video game is about half a million units.
          If ubisoft decided to make use of the ps4/vita ,xbone/smartglass combos they could make a sequel profitable

    • Lethal_Doze

      Making game exclusive to Wii U right now is a bad, bad idea. I wonder what PG think about probable sales of W101 and Bayo2.

      It’s not reasonable to deploy resources to projects that turn very little profit if any at all, when you can make games for PS/Xbox/PC and make much more.
      In fact in many businesses such practice is illegal to “waste” resources on low profit projects.

      • Akatosh

        B2 might be okay, because it’s coming after the holidays, and supposedly there is going to be a sale boom for Nintendo.

    • Zakariyya Al-Quran

      i also think the same but thw game was extremely short

  • kinghenroc187

    ubisoft that game was rushed graphics looks like ps3 thats why you got no profits gamers are not stupid wii u is next gen and you give us a crappy looking game.. the game is cool but its not showing what the wii u can do go fuck your self why dont you give us the division the crew show people the system is capable nobody wants a crappy looking game dont get me wrong the game is good but should of increase graphics on it you didnt show enough to make people want it i got the game because i will support what about the hard headed??

  • FoxMulder900

    This is incredibly frustrating to me. ZombiU was my favorite survival horror in recent history. It definitely was missing some polish (not unlike any launch title) but the ideas and mechanics behind it are great and could really revitalize the genre.

  • Only a few are true gamers

    Well Ubi I quess you won’t be getting anymore of my money ….sorry

    • D.M.T

      i like your username and i agree. Only few are true gamers, others are just fanboys

    • Bob Charlie

      *Whistles*
      Look at that sexy 2600!

      • Only a few are true gamers

        The 2600 was awesome i bought the first one that came out

  • Petri

    Sure it would do a lot better now, if they would release it at least with most of the game breaking glitches fixed.
    I think it did well, 500k on 3 million consoles sold.
    Was a good game, even with the glitches.

    • BLACKendTiamat

      read up on the game breaking glitch in the school.

      inched my way through it to avoid dying from that gas zombie after the boss.

      one thing i made sure of was NOT dying to him. would have hated to had to restart the whole game.

      stress level – over 9000.

      • Petri

        One at the nursery?
        Have heard about it.

        I was lucky, I only had glitch with the first extraction chopper. Zombies dead but event did not proceed.
        Only had to play like 15 minutes to get back.

        I guess I played the game as it was intended to?

        Though I think my survival save is stuck at the gas canister errand,
        wonder if the patch fixed it?

        • BLACKendTiamat

          yeah, the nursery one. havent been able to play it for 8 months now. been away from home. i forgot what part i was at even. cant wait to get back into it :)

  • D.M.T

    I think Ubisoft is lying but let’s assume that it’s true, ZombiU wasn’t profitable. There are 3 reasons why ZombiU didn’t sell:

    1. The reviews for the game were negative or not very positive. Gamers these days won’t buy a game if it got a low score from IGN and other big video game sites.

    2. It’s a Wii U game with Xbox 360 graphics. Wii U can produce much better graphics. Ubisoft didn’t use Wii U’s power to make ZombiU.

    3. The game was rushed and everyone knows that. They needed to spent more time on it.

    I still like Ubisoft and I will buy Watch Dogs and Splinter Cell but I am no longer a huge fan of them. They ignored Wii U at E3 and to me that is worse than delaying Rayman Legends. I can forgive Ubisoft but i will never forget.

    • JeanPaul Badjo

      What? You think they are lying??? Ubisoft is currently the best 3rd party supporter nintendo has! People this is a fanboy. I love my wiiu but we can’t blame third parties for everything. Nintendo is doing a horrible job selling the wiiu. This is a fact. I think by the end of the year the wiiu will be flying off shelves but for now they are doing horrible. If people don’t buy WiiU’s than why will developers put games on it? This is all about MONEY! not love, hope or loyalty!

      • D.M.T

        I’m not a fanboy you idiot. This is not the first time that Ubisoft lies about the Wii U. 3rd party publishers always lies about things because they want to be politically correct. ZombiU is like the 3rd best selling Wii U game so how is it possible that a rushed game didn’t make a profit? Nintendo is to blame but 3rd parties are to blame too.

        • nin-10-doughfan

          people wants horsepower!

        • David Porter

          ” 3rd party publishers always lies about things because they want to be politically correct”

          What?

          Explain that, please, because at first glance, that inane statement makes you look absolutely stupid.

          • D.M.T

            Being politically correct means that you blame things on others instead of blaming yourself because you want to keep your good reputation get it? Ubisoft wants us to believe that they are not guilty of anything, it’s our fault and Nintendo’s fault. You said I look stupid at first glance and yet 10 people agreed with me. I think it’s you who’s too stupid to understand what I’m trying to say.

          • David Porter

            We have established that you don’t actually understand what the term “political correctness” means. You’re invited to Google it.

            Ubisoft has done what they could to support a platform that isn’t performing to ANYONE’S expectations. Should they keep dumping millions and millions of dollars into a system that Nintendo themselves don’t seem to care about (even Nintendo officials have apologized for the lack of software and advertising from THEIR OWN STUDIOS)?

            Within a year, unless something drastic changes, this system will be all-but-dead to every third party developer, and Iwata will step down. If that happens, Nintendo will have no one to blame but themselves.

            Incidentally, I DO own a Wii U. I just haven’t played the damned thing in months. I regret the purchase- that’s the first time I’ve ever felt that way about a Nintendo system, and I’m a 31 year old guy who played the original Metroid back in 86.

            These are dark days.

          • D.M.T

            Instead of inviting me to Google, why don’t you explain in your own words what political correctness means? Explain it and I will find out if you are right.

            I’m not going to deny that Wii u is struggling, it is but Ubisoft didn’t spent millions and millions making ZombiU. Ubisoft admitted not long ago that making games for Wii U is not very expensive so they didn’t lose as much money as you think. Time is money and Ubisoft didn’t spend a lot of money because they didn’t spend a lot of time making ZombiU. ZombiU is a rushed game with crappy graphics because they didn’t use Wii U’s power.

            You can make all the predictions you want buddy, I will remain patient and I will trust Nintendo. Go ahead and say that Wii U is doomed and that Iwata will step down, I will laugh at all the idiots that judged Wii U too soon, I’ll laugh at you too.

            I doubt you own a Wii U but lets assume you do own a Wii U. If you regret buying a Wii U then sell it because no one is forcing you to keep your Wii U. Sell it but you will regret selling your Wii U when realize how successful it has become. I don’t regret buying a Wii U, even if Nintendo discontinues the Wii U tomorrow I will not regret my purchase. Wii U is an underrated console, that’s why it’s struggling.

            These aren’t dark days, Wii U is just an 8 months old baby console that needs to grow and become more successful.

          • David Porter

            Political correctness is typically a pejorative term used to describe someone who tows the line and goes out of their way to “not offend”. Generally, the term is used in cultural discussions. It’s odd to even apply it to video games. I assume you meant to use a different term. Chin up, cowboy- sometimes we all make mistakes.

            Ubisoft may not have spent millions and millions on ZombiU (I would suggest at least a few million was spent, as the cost of high-profile games isn’t getting cheaper), but they certainly would be spending millions and millions on THE MULTITUDE OF GAMES THEY ARE CURRENTLY DEVELOPING and plan to develop in the future.

            Look, I don’t care if you’re right and I’m wrong about what will happen with the Wii U. In fact, I HOPE you’re right. I’d like nothing more than to erase the feeling that I wasted my money on the Basic set (I have a 1TB HD hooked up to mine, and I didn’t care that it was white).

            I wish I hadn’t bought the Wii U and had instead used that money for other games on my PS3.

          • D.M.T

            You cheated, I told you to explain it in your own words. You copy pasted your description of the word from the internet but whatever. And yes it’s possible to apply it to video games since video game publishers are businessmen.

            Of course Ubisoft spend a few millions on ZombiU but ZombiU is like the 3rd best selling Wii U game and they themselves admitted that ZombiU was not expensive. it was a rushed game with graphics on par with Xbox 360.

            Like I said, if you regret buying a Wii U then sell it, get rid of it but you will look stupid if you end up buying a Wii U again. Sell your Wii U and buy PS3 games with that money. Do it.

          • David Porter

            Cheated? What are you talking about? I wrote out a simple definition for you in my own words, as requested by you, because you’re too lazy or inept to look it up yourself.

            With respect to the money spent by Ubisoft- first you bitched and moaned that I was wrong about how much was spent, and now you flip the script and say “OF COURSE they spent a few million”. Come on, it’s like you’re not even trying.

            I do regret buying the Wii U. Worse, I bought Arkham City and some other game (Little Inferno, I think) digitally, so if I wanted to sell the system, I’d have to attempt to include the cost of those games.

            No, I probably won’t sell the system. Instead, it’ll be just like my Wii- a sad, dusty reminder of why I will never, EVER, purchase another Nintendo product on day one.

            I get the very real sense, however, that after this console generation, we may not see another Nintendo living room machine.

          • Potemkin

            Stop blaming third party developers for what Nintendo should be doing. Even when a company is making a port of a game they are investing TIME AND RESOURCES, which translates into money, and a lot of it. The WiiU might be still too young, but it is making all the right moves to become a failure of a console, so it is up to Nintendo to turn the tables and make people see the real value of the console (or maybe we are seeing what it is worth as of now)

          • D.M.T

            And you need to stop defending 3rd party publishers. I never said that Nintendo is not to blame but 3rd party publishers are to blame as well. Yes time and resources = money but Ubisoft THEMSELVES admitted that Wii U is not very expensive to develop for which is why I believe that they didn’t lose a lot of money with ZombiU. I strongly believe that Nintendo will turn the tables and prove everyone wrong again. I will not make the mistake you are making, which is judging the Wii U too soon.

          • Potemkin

            I’m only basing my opinion on the current status of the console, which is what I would call being realistic. I wish Nintendo to succeed, but with their current business model adopted with the Wii, the plan is backfiring at them. Thirds are not to blame but Nintendo is for the current situation of their console, just like Sony is to blame for the PS Vita current status.

          • D.M.T

            3rd parties are to blame believe it or not. You can’t just blame Nintendo for everything but you know what? Believe whatever you want. Nintendo will probably make you eat your words sooner or later. That always happens when people like you talk too much.

          • Potemkin

            Well I hope it turns out like you say and Nintendo shows that it can manage this situation and change the state of the console. Now, let’s say for a moment, if you were a game developer and you make a living out of it, would you make game only to lose money? When people understand the point of view of all parties, things like these wouldn’t be so hard to comprehend :/

          • D.M.T

            I understand that if I were a game developer, I wouldn’t want to lose money but I also understand (and this is what you fail to understand) that I need to make GOOD games for Wii U if I want to make money because gamers will not buy a bad game. 3rd party publishers are guilty of giving Wii U owners bad ports. They give us the inferior version of every game and THAT’S why we don’t buy them and they don’t make money. They are also guilty of breaking their promises to Wii U owners and they are guilty of giving us rushed games like ZombiU. When people like you understand the point of view of Nintendo fans, things like these wouldn’t be so hard to comprehend

          • Potemkin

            Sadly, Nintendo itself started a trend with the Wii where you basically had to dumb down a game to match the Wii capabilities (compared to the others) and make use of the motion controls and seeing how games like “Just Dance” did so well, the conception of “the easier the better” became a standard with the Wii brand. Hell, even Nintendo went this course with some of it’s IPs like Metroid (other M) and Super Smash Bros Brawl (which was directed towards casuals), so once again, it’s Nintendo that paved the path that the Wii U is taking.

          • D.M.T

            Once again you have no idea what you’re talking about. The lack of 3rd party support exists before the Wii. The GameCube was more powerful than the PS2 and guess what? PS2 dominated the GameCube. It has nothing to do with power, it has nothing to do with the Wii Remote and has nothing to do with the type of games. 3rd party publishers have something against Nintendo and its fans but everyone is too blind to see this. They are always making excuses and straight up lying when it comes to developing games for Nintendo consoles. It’s because of people like you that 3rd parties are getting worse each generation because you defend their bullshit.

          • Potemkin

            Being a fanboy clouds the judgement. As I have said before, Nintendo is the one at fault as they blocked each and every path a third could take when developing for their home consoles. True the SNES, N64 and Game Cube were “stronger” than the others, but it wasn’t because of the graphical prowess that the N64 failed, it was because of the dumb decision to take cartridges instead of CDs, or adopting propietary MiniDisc instead of a DVDs (Game Cube) and poor negotiations with thirds. Saying something like “have something against Nintendo” when explanations, numbers and situations show otherwise is just dumb. See the history behind Nintendo, 2nd party and 3rd party developers and you will see something very interesting.

          • D.M.T

            It seems like you call me a fanboy to feel better about yourself. I won’t argue with you about whether I’m a fanboy or not because your opinion is completely irrelevant to me. Truth is you don’t know anything about me. 3rd party developers have been lazy since the N64 days, using cartridges as an excuse to ignore the N64 and using GameCube’s mini discs as an excuse to ignore the GameCube. If I was a game developer looking to make as much money as possible, I would put my games on the N64 no matter what and I would find a solution for the GameCube’s mini disc issue. EA came up with a nice, yet simple solution to the problem. EA sport games on GameCube used 2 discs because 1 wasn’t enough. Other developers could have made 2 disc games on GC if they really wanted to make money. What’s REALLY dumb is how you are only blaming Nintendo for everything. You ignore how greedy, lazy and liars 3rd party publishers are.

          • Potemkin

            You are right, I don’t know anything about you and I really could care less, but I am curious, did I ever call YOU a fanboy? I threw out the line and if it fits it sits, simple as that. You are totally missing the point here, it is not a matter that thirds want or not to make a console “suffer” for the lack of their software, but whether it is profitable for them or not, and believe it or not, Ubisoft is making something that no other company is willing to: Lose money and resources in order to create a base for their business. Capcom, Square, Atlus, Konami and others don’t have enough money to throw it out like that to see if it’s worth the effort. You complain about third being lazy, but take Suda51 and Sega for examples. They made great games for Wii and they sold very poorly, enough to make Sega question if Nintendo really had a market other than for kids and Suda51 made the games multiplatform. Mostly Nintendo games sell well on Nintendo consoles, other than that and it is very rare to see a third make a success on them.

          • D.M.T

            You basically called me a fanboy yes but like i said i dont care what people on the internet thinks of me. I’m not missing the point, it’s you who doesn’t understand that 3rd parties are to blame as well. You need to make GOOD GAMES for Wii U if you want to make a profit. Ubisoft gave us ports and below average exclusives at launch. That’s not how you convince gamers to buy your games. It’s Ubisoft’s fault not Nintendo’s fault. Capcom has supported the Wii U with above average games which is why Capcom is not bitching about sales. You need to work hard to make money, Wii U owners will not support lazy developers. I don’t believe that Sega games sold poorly on Wii and if they did then it’s probably because the games weren’t that great. The reason why mostly Nintendo games sell well on Nintendo systems is because Nintendo games are of better quality than most 3rd party games on Nintendo systems. Nintendo fans buy quality games, we don’t buy whatever game they throw at us.

          • Potemkin

            Monster Hunter didn’t receive that much of an update and neither did Resident Evil Revelations, which ironically are PORTS of a handheld system, but you do not see that Street Fighter, Marvel Vs. Capcom or Resident Evil 6 are on Wii U. Why is that? because none of those are proven to be success with Nintendo. Tatsunoko Vs. Capcom only sold 500,000 units worldwide on a console with an install base of over 90 million consoles while Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 sold over 1 million only on 360 and 1.24 million on PS3 and in both cases their install base was smaller than the Wii’s. Games on a Nintendo platform are barely profitable for thirds hence they go for what is safe for them.

          • D.M.T

            Monster Hunter and RE Revelations aren’t inferior ports, that’s why they sold good enough on the Wii U. Resident Evil 6 skipped the Wii U because it’s different from other Resident Evil games and a lot of people didn’t like RE 6 so i’m glad it skipped the Wii U. I already told you that 3rd parties need to give us GOOD GAMES that we want to play if they want to make money on Nintendo platforms. They lose money because of their laziness and greediness. 3rd parties want better graphics each generation but what about better games each gen? 3rd parties are getting worse and worse each gen. If they can somehow come up with new IPs that would shine just as much as Nintendo games then they would be profitable on Nintendo systems. The solution is for them to make better games, stop giving us ports that are worse than on other systems.

          • Potemkin

            My point is, Capcom went safe with ports, same thing other thirds have been doing and yet you people complain about it. EA brought over Mass Effect 3 and Need for Speed and others brought Ninja Gaiden 3, Tekken, AC and more. Those are all AAA games yet they sold like garbage. The games I mentioned above are better (better adaptation) than the ones in PS3 and 360.

          • D.M.T

            You still don’t get it. The problem is that a lot of 3rd parties treat us Nintendo fans as if we are inferior to Sony and MS fans. EA gave PS3/360 owners the entire Mass Effect Trilogy for $60 and gave us Wii U owners just Mass Effect 3 for the same price. We are not stupid, we demand same treatment that Sony and MS fans get. Why didn’t Wii U owners get the trilogy? Need For Speed Most Wanted U is better but it came 5 months after the other versions. The other games you mentioned didn’t sell like garbage, they just sold below publishers expectations. 3rd parties need to give Nintendo fans the same treatment if they want to make money on the Wii U

          • David Porter

            ” but Ubisoft THEMSELVES admitted that Wii U is not very expensive to develop for which is why I believe that they didn’t lose a lot of money with ZombiU”

            Not being prohibitively expensive DOES NOT MAKE IT FREE. They still have to pay an entire team of artists, programmers, directors, producers, leads, testers, you name it.

            Everyone is quick to blame the developers, but if you had to put your own money where your considerable mouth is, you’d very quickly understand that cheap ain’t free, and it ain’t even really all that cheap if you never see a return on the investment.

            Making games isn’t charity.

          • oontz

            “Making games isn’t charity.”

            THIS… so many fanboys forget this important fact time and time again.

          • Magnus Eriksson

            Its actually understandable that nobody wants to develope for Wii U at this point. Nintendo have some work to do first and step up sales a bit. Get titles out, start the production of a highlevel grapics game like Metroid, Zelda, F-Zero or Starfox. Release teasers. Cut price on console by a 50$. Make VC library bigger and cheaper, involve N64 and GCN. Rethink region lock. That way people will think the console is a good deal and buy it. Listen to fanboys who thinks everyone else did wrong will destroy the console.

            edit: downvote this if you hate Nintendo and wants it to fail, or if you are a fanboy.

          • Potemkin

            That is exactly what I have been telling people, but that is heresy for the fanboys. Ironically, we (no fanboys) want more the best for Nintendo than the fanboys as they keep aproving and praising each mistake and wrong policy Nintendo is applying to it’s console.

          • oontz

            Political correctness (adjectivally, politically correct; both forms commonly abbreviated to PC) is a term that refers to language, ideas, or policies which address discrimination against or alienation of politically, socially or economically disadvantaged groups. The term usually implies that these social considerations are excessive or of a purely “political” nature. These groups most prominently include those defined by gender, race, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation and disability.

          • David Porter

            Ha, which is the “good definition”. Mine was the “bad” definition. Both most certainly are accurate. Either way, the usage by @Nintendawg:disqus was wrong.

          • oontz

            “even if Nintendo discontinues the Wii U tomorrow I will not regret my purchase.”

            Wait… what?!?! So you like throwing money away?? Have I got a deal for you…

          • D.M.T

            Buying a Wii U is not wasting money. Wii U is a great console but it’s underrated because the masses doesn’t understand what’s so great about it. If Nintendo discontinues it tomorrow I won’t regret my purchase

          • David Porter

            What, pray tell, is so great about it?

            I like the franchises that Nintendo created, but nothing about the Wii U is very enjoyable, from the slow OS (even after the update), to the TVii, which, while a neat concept, doesn’t have the support necessary to make it a good replacement for the Comcast app on my iPhone or iPad, and region lock.

            What *exactly* is so great about the system itself?

          • D.M.T

            You remind of someone that i used to argue with. That guy didn’t understand anything no matter what I say. I will not argue with you. You have your opinion and I have mine. I think Wii U is great, deal with it.

          • David Porter

            I’m simply asking you to *justify* your assertions that the console is “underrated”. When you say that, you imply that no one else can see its actual value. I believe you’re the one looking at it through rose-tinted glasses, and I’m simply asking you what makes it special, specifically, to you?

            Help me understand what I’m missing here, because I’ve had the thing since day one, and I’m not “getting it”.

          • D.M.T

            Why do you care about what I think? If you dont understand Wii U’s value now that you “own” one, no one can help you understand the Wii U no matter what. If you wanna know why Wii U is underrated then ask someone else, don’t waste my time.

          • oontz

            I never said buying a wiiu was a waste of money. You implied that you wouldn’t mind if nintendo discontinued the wiiu. Someone that freely invests in something that then becomes discontinued, in my opinion likes throwing money away.

          • Yousif Alromaithi

            For one point I disagree Nintendo is losing money because of Tsunami on 2011. Nintendo is making more profit they just worked on it this year at July 25 go check the website http://zelda-symphony.com/index.php/schedule. This project will let Nintendo make more profit then Wii U. Bad times agreed Nintendo is having bad time so is vita so no one is better than the others. In time Nintendo will show some increase of money in terms of revenue and whatsoever on this year so how will you feel when you find out you were wrong. People Believing the critics and the same critics that said Xenoblade is not a known game. Same thing happened here when the same critic’s that said last story will suck. Well bro Last Story and Xenoblade got high scores because they are original creators of Final fantasy and Chrono Triggers. Simply put it this as why critics tend to say something bad and spread false rumors. Let them do whatever they want because you guys will find out Nintendo was never wrong in the first place.

          • nin-10-doughfan

            exactly!

          • oontz

            Why do you keep bringing up the Tsunami?????

          • Yousif Alromaithi

            Nintendo wanted to launch Wii U with Zelda at e3 2011 but problem is 3DS had suffered a huge loss that year and Nintendo said announcing another console while Sony and Microsoft has not is a bit to early so 2012 is great time to debut for a new console. So it is not Nintendo fault still sony is losing a lot of money now not just Nintendo. Sony department is a lot bigger they have many products and still losing money. The loss for Tsunami is pretty much a heartbreak for all Japanese people. Nintendo and Sony has no choice but to help the people of their country with charity.

          • oontz

            So nintendo has had a copy of Zelda for wiiu ready to launch since E3 2011??? Do you read what you type? It doesn’t make any sense… sorry.

          • THEMIGHTYDOOVDE

            You do realise that ‘a system that Nintendo themselves don’t seem to care about’ and ‘Nintendo officials have apologized’ are a complete contradiction right?

          • David Porter

            No, in fact, to my mind it crystallizes exactly my point- Nintendo execs thought they’d have a winner right out of the gate AND BECAME VERY LAZY about doing the legwork necessary to ensure its success. ONLY AFTER the abysmal performance in these last eight months has Nintendo opened its eyes and realized that they don’t dictate the terms of the industry and consumers- the consumers dictate the terms to the industry, of which Nintendo is ONE small part.

          • Guest

            If Nintendo didn’t care, they wouldn’t apologize! It’s a contradiction no matter how you try to spin it.

            Also, if Nintendo have been lazy with Wii U in it’s first 8 months, then Sony were practically asleep with the PS3 in the same time frame!

            Anyway, I’ll let you get back to your passive aggressive trolling!

            P.S. Im perfectly aware there’s a difference between having an different opinion and trolling….

          • David Porter

            You may believe I’m “trolling” (it’s funny, it seems anyone who disagrees with your tunnel-vision is a “troll”), but I’m certainly not being “passive-aggressive” about it.

            I’m making my points publicly, WITHOUT ANONYMITY, and following up. The same cannot be said of you.

            With respect to the Wii U, I believe the only reason Nintendo are apologizing now is because they’re suffering the consequences of their earlier hubris. They *didn’t* care enough to do the work to make the Wii U succeed, and now they realize that isn’t going to fly.

          • oontz

            Not when the rest of his statement is taken into context. ie: lack of software and advertising from their own studios.

          • oontz

            “We have established that you don’t actually understand what the term “political correctness” means. You’re invited to Google it.”

            That made me LOL for real!!!

      • DragonSilths

        Your the one thats blind. Ubisoft is hiding behind a false smile. Everyone thinks Ubifail is so great. Do just a few minutes of research and you will discover Ubisoft has gone soft. They are barely better then EA. You want to support Ubifail? A company who fired the guy who created Assassins Creed literally had him thrown out of the building, he couldnt even say good bye to his friends and team, or get his personal stuff. He plans to fight Ubisoft for his team, himself and his game. Ubifail fires him now owns fully his game AC and prints off a new version every year like COD. So if you want to support the bullshit that goes on behind the scenes at Ubifail, go for it.

        • David Porter

          It’s Ubisoft. You aren’t making yourself look clever calling them “Ubifail”. That’s just dumb.

          • DragonSilths

            Im not trying to be clever? Its just what I call them. Like how I call Microsoft Greedysoft. I call any company out on its bullshit. Like Crapcom and such.

          • oontz

            So you should call yourself “DragonShits”

          • DragonSilths

            Why? That would be fine if I was a troll I suppose. I’m fine with my name so thanks anyway. However feel free to create a new account and call yourself that. You can be the immature one on the site.

          • oontz

            You said you call things out on their bullshit… so… yeah. You should change your name to DragonShits.

    • The Clockwork Being

      Yeah they totally ignored the Wii U at E3. Look at their RPG game the Division, lets just look at it for a moment. We can see that at first it might seem like a completely new game but if you know better its really a Ghost Recon Online with a actual story. The gameplay is the same it really is, i would know since ive played Ghost Recon for a while. Now seeing this I became rather suspicious about the game and its connection to Ghost Recon. I remembered that the people at Ubisoft said that their version of Ghost Recon on Wii U would be a superior version than that of the PC version. He even added that the Gamepad would be fully used adding tons of cool features to the gameplay of Ghost Recon. Yet the Division AKA Ghost Recon Online RPG isn’t coming to Wii U.

      TBH they blew it with this opportunity. I mean unless they lied about adding awesome features to the Wii U version of Ghost Recon Online, one that uses the Gamepad in awesome ways why isnt this game on Wii U. What I think is that the fact that they said the Wii U version of Ghost Recon Online was going to use the Gamepad in awesome ways was nothing but a lie.

    • Srpg2ishere

      Also don’t forget that this was an exclusive meaning that people had to buy a Wii U to play this. From what I’ve heard the Wii U isn’t selling so well right now. :/ But the great first party titles coming will probably get more people to buy one. And eventually buy Zombi U as well. So we still have hope. :D

    • thedeciderU

      i thought the lighting and particles on the camera were awesome. but yeah, the people looked 360ish. the game was too short, unfortunately, but i still had a fun time getting through the game.

  • kinghenroc187

    ubisoft that game was rushed graphics looks like ps3 thats why you got no profits gamers are not stupid wii u is next gen and you give us a crappy looking game.. the game is cool but its not showing what the wii u can do go fuck your self why dont you give us the division the crew show people the system is capable nobody wants a crappy looking game dont get me wrong the game is good but should of increase graphics on it you didnt show enough to make people want it i got the game because i will support what about the hard headed??

  • Linskarmo

    I don’t like horror, which is why I didn’t get Zombi U. I still think that Ubisoft would have gotten more Legends sales if they’d released it in February. There’s no problem with it being multi-platform, but games were scarce earlier this year.

  • Michael Jurado

    anyone else think that it sucks if the game isn’t based on a popular character or heavy on FPS it fails -_- Personally I loved Zombie U sure it had some glitches, yes it had some game breaking cheats, but what do you expect from a rushed game?

  • Edawg

    Regardless of the excuses as to why this game didn’t sell, it paints a bleak picture for the Wii U’s future, at least for 3rd party games. I love Nintendo, and my Wii U, but it’s looking BAD right now. Hardcore fans will buy the usual big 1st party games, but 3rd party releases will be nonexistent next year.

  • Clel

    I would have gotten the game, seeing how people praised it so much (not IGN, but the comments was just all rage at the reviewer). However, my nerves would most likely crack and I’m not in a great position to start losing sleep.

  • Ducked

    Okay what??? ZombiU was like a top 3 seller on the Wii U when it launched. Do people expect a console to sell 40 million units within a year? Just wait till Christmas when black Friday comes, and all the good Nintendo games release.

    I think a lot of 3rd party developers are waiting until after December to decide if they want to bring games to the Wii U. Square Enix probably won’t announce if they wanna bring Kingdom Hearts III to Wii U until after December.

    Hopefully Nintendo will have successful holiday sales.

    • Joel

      You do know that it is impossible for KH3 to be on Wii U, right?

      • Ducked

        Impossible?

        Just like it be impossible for Kingdom Hearts to ever come to a Xbox console right? If Xbox One can get KH3, then so can the Wii U.

        • Joel

          No, you idiot.

          The Wii U is weaker than Xbox One and Playstation 4, and there is no way in hell it could handle one of those games.

          • iCold

            No you idiot, If you’re talking about the Direct X thing then the ps4 cant get it, Direct X is owned by Microsoft, ps4 and Wii U use something different, its not the fact of power its that the Wii U isnt selling too good and companies are scared

          • Ducked

            Okay, guess I shouldn’t feed this Xbox One fanboy.

            No duh the Wii U is weaker than the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Tell me something I don’t know. It’s not like Kingdom Hearts III is using all this juice. From the trailer we saw, it could probably even run on the PS3. The engine KH3 is running on can be ported to the Wii U.

            If Square sees sales this holiday season, then there more than likely take the time to do it.

            ps,

            Please return to Xbox Oned Daily

          • Joel

            Xbox One fanboy? LOL.

            I’m trying to show you logic and reality in your little dreamland where Nintendo is still the king of hardcore gaming.

            Also, they already said that the main reason KH3 was even announced was to spur interest, adding in that KH3 was in very, very early stages of development, meaning there’s no telling how much the graphics could improve.

            Nintendrone.

          • Ducked

            Nintendo is the king of hardcore gaming? What are you saying, Nintendo is anything but hardcore since the N64…

            Yes it’s in early development, but there using cartoon shade to make it have that Disney look. It’s not like there trying to make it realistic like Battlefield 4, or Watch Dogs.

            Nintendrone? Haha, thats funny because I’m still a PlayStation gamer.

          • Joel

            Remember the SNES? That was when they were. Competing with SEGA. Now it’s mostly Sony v.s. Microsoft, with Nintendo being the niche company.

            If all that’s true, then why are you saying that KH3 should be on a system too weak to handle it?

          • Ducked

            Why? For two good reasons.

            1: It would make them MONEY

            2: They released four Kingdom Hearts games on Nintendo platforms. Kingdom Hearts may has not come to any Nintendo home consoles yet, but it’s just wrong to bring Nintendo fans into Kingdom Hearts and then make them buy a PS4 or Xbox One. Xbox One hasn’t gotton any Kingdom Hearts games yet they get the final game in the Xehanort saga?

            It only makes sense.

          • Joel

            It would cost them much more money to scale down the engine for the Wii U as opposed to porting it to the Xbox One, which has the same amount of power as the PS4. So tough luck to the Nintendrones.

          • NkoSekirei

            ignore the trolls they lie way too much

      • Fred

        It’s not impossible. It would just cost more money because they’d have to redo a lot of the work since it was done on the Direct X 11 Engine.
        So Square would have to believe that it will sell a lot more before they will consider putting it on the Wii U (probably won’t happen, but we can hope)

  • Sydney Ultrasyd

    A friend of mine let me try his game, but I didn’t buy it. Cool atmosphere and nice use of the Gamepad, but the graphics were crap. I was disapointed to see something like that on my brand new Wii U. But hopefully, some games look great and show that Ubi didn’t put much effort polishing the visuals … I don’t want the most powerful machine, but I want a console that is correctly used and delivers something nice to watch.

    • DemonRoach

    This is really a pity. ZombiU is an amazing, but underrated game. Way better than Red Steel was as a Wii launch title.

  • Randall Hellmer

    Ouch.

    Given this, I’d imagine they were expecting at least an even million, given that 460k is “not even close.” They must have taken Nintendo’s initial estimates seriously if they expected to make that much.

    In the end, I can’t really blame them. The game is critically mixed, but it has a following, and it’s the third-best selling game on the system by a significant margin. They did everything that could reasonably have been expected of them, and it still didn’t turn out alright for them. At that point, I’d be tempted to take my marbles and go too.

    • Nintendo Hater

      Agreed, Nintendo should just go 3rd party

      • Randall Hellmer

        I’d settle for them making well-conceived systems and gameplay ideas.

    Damnit, I absolutely loved that game. I’m so sad to hear this. This is actually my only Wii U game to date (none of the other ones look worth buying for more than 10 or $15 dollars). Although, technically I didn’t buy it, it was a gift. I’ve been enjoying Wii games since I never had one :).

    Still, this game has amazing atmosphere, amazing use of the gamepad, and great stressful and suspenseful gameplay. Ubisoft, make a PC version, or something!!! Come on, I really want to see another Zombi game.

  • Nintendo Hater

    Thanks to Nintendo Zombie U can finally RIP

  • Agent721

    The game did not sell well as it sucked. Theyre tons of way better zombie games out there.

    • Nintendo Hater

      SCREW You Loser!

      • Agent721

        Make friends. Get a dog. And make sure to fully pull that ansgt out of your ass.

  • Johny

    DDDD: what ? noooooo…
    let alone the fact i can hardly believe it didn’t turn in a profit… the game was REALLY good, and its a shame people didnt give it a chance just because it got low scores JUST because its different, and because people aren’t used to it -.- it pisses me off
    the game was unique, different and VERY well built. sure it had its flaws and it was alittle rushed, which was stopping it it from being a “masterpiece” but the game was HELL OF A BLAST to play. im a big fan of zombiu…. it’d make me very sad to not see a sequel, or a next iteration of the game which played in a similar fashion :((((

      if nintendo dies, gaming dies why?

      Sony won’t have a any company to copy from they’d close down the gaming dept and move back to just every other electronics.

  • Nintendo Hater

    Nintendo MAKES ME HATE VIDEO GAMES.

    • Fred

      That’s easy to fix.

      Step 1- Don’t buy anything made by Nintendo.

      Step 2- Sell/give away everything you currently that was made by Nintendo

      Step 3- Go buy a PS4, Xbox One or both

      Step 4- Don’t read articles about Nintendo hardware or games ever again

      Step 5- Don’t play Nintendo hardware or games ever again

      Step 6- Enjoy video games again

    • Agent721

      Thats because the wiimote is not a dildo. Yep…time to call the proctologist!!!

  • Fred

    But don’t Zombie U and Rayman Legends sell to completely different groups of people? I would think Zombie U would sell better on Playstation and Xbox and Rayman Legends would sell better on Nintendo.
    I know I’m more of a Nintendo guy (I do own a PS3 but not that many games on it) and I have no interest in Zombie U, but I will buy Rayman Legends FOR SURE!

  • RoyRelapse

    I understand this decision from a business standpoint, although it is very sad because I like playing ZombiU, I hope the WiiU sales will skyrocket this fall/winter and it will get the 3rd party support that was promised by Nintendo and the companies like EA, Ubisoft and Activision.

  • Lusunup

    Didn’t they twit that were making a sequel or was I mistaken?

  • Agent X

    In this day and age i think you need at least two consoles since companies are hating on each other. Nintendo for Nintendo games and monster hunter and xbox/ps for every other game. I have 5games on wii U, the others that is should have gotten I already own on 360, the one i dont own on 360 i bought on WiiU(arkhamcity and AC3) which i still haven’t played bcos of MH3u

    PS: If you have enough money own at least two systems, you d enjoy gaming more that way.

    If your parents buy your console, buy a console that suits your gaming life(eg. if you a diehard COD player dont own a nintendo).

    If you are broke, im such u have friends that own at least on of these consoles. play the game with them that is if they let you in their house

  • Antar Rodríguez

    from the companies that have supported nintendo, ubisoft is the one i respect the most, i really want the wii u sales to go skyhigh but sadly thay havent implemented good desicions (marketing efforts, better public relationships) please nintendo correct your path taken, i hate to see this great company having such a hard time.

  • dxcvs

    Dang I wanted a sequal. Guess I’ll throw away this panacea thing in the ditch then the world is doomed

  • nin-10-doughfan

    it is so different no developer wants to develop games for the system most especially peter moores’ EA!

  • Agent721

    Well keep reading this until Nintendo puts out more games themselves, which will drive system sales…until then, this is going to read like a bad rerun. Without first party support, you cannot excuse expect 3rd party support…its that simple.

  • Christopher Coonan

    But a sequel WOULD be profitable, because of a larger install-base, and the fact that they know now what they had done wrong.

    • David Porter

      I bet my last paycheck on the wrong horse, but now that I KNOW what I did wrong, I can’t miss!

      That kind of thinking leads directly to bankruptcy.

      • Christopher Coonan

        But it’s a ‘horse’ that they created, and they alone know what they can do to fix it.

        It’s less of betting on the horse, and more of raising the horse, yourself.

        • David Porter

          A ‘horse’ made entirely of money. The best thing to do when you find yourself losing a lot of money in an investment is to STOP POURING MORE MONEY INTO IT.

          • oontz

            That’s what so funny about hardcore nintendo fanboys… they don’t think logically. At the end of the day ubi soft is a company that only exists to make money. If one of their projects is not making money they aren’t going to do it. Companies unfortunately only care about profit. Nintendo, Microsoft, Sony, and ALL GAME COMPANIES. They don’t care about you or me or anything other than making a profit.

  • John Andalora

    Aaaand another blow to the hopes and dreams of so many ZombiU players!

  • Larry Howell

    That’s a shame. I enjoyed the game quite a bit, but c’mon…. it wasn’t exactly a AAA blockbuster. It was fairly short, linear, and pretty lacking in options. It had LOTS of potential though, and that’s where the sequel would have shined in.

  • MujuraNoKamen

    Well, you can’t really expect to hit it big at a console launch normally, especially with the amount of doom BS surrounding Wii U. And let’s face it, ZombiU was given average reviews (it deserved better) but few people will buy a game day 1 if got under a 7 from sites like IGN etc. Also, it was hardly a great showcase of Wii U’s power, the game was a bit rushed and the muddy visuals probably put a few people off. Lastly, where was the advertising? I know it’s Nintendo’s job to advertise Wii U and it’s games and they’ve failed on that front but not many people were expecting it to happen whereas Ubisoft are big enough company and they should have advertised the damn game on TV. You bet when AC4 and The Division come out for Xbone & PS4 we’re going to have commercials shoved down our throats. If Ninty hadn’t screwed up the ad campaign then things could have been better but Ubisoft isn’t exactly blameless either.

  • David Porter

    Stick a fork in it- the Wii U is done. I feel like a damned sucker for buying one on launch day. Anyone want a Wii U for cheap?

    • Yousif Alromaithi

      Sure thing bro name the price the for your Wii U because it will find a better owner while it is under my hands.

  • ray anderson

    I got the ZombiU edition of WiiU and have yet to play the ZombiU. I got the addition to get most product for price point, but yeah. To me, I guess maybe just me, it doesn’t seem like that fun of a game.

    • oontz

      You can only club a zombie and with a cricket bat and the see the exact same canned animation so many times before it becomes boring.

  • Sidney Majurie

    Here is why I don’t buy Ubisofts excuse:
    AC3 on Wii U sold 170,000 copies
    ZombiU sold 460, 000 (not counting digital and bundles.
    Roughly 1 in 7 Wii U owners have a copy of ZombiU. A new IP with meh visuals and review scores from good to mediocre. Meanwhile, AC3, a long standing, super hyped AAA franchise game manages to sell to roughly 1 in 10 Wii U owners but Wii U gets the sequel AC4?

    Explain this logic Ubisoft.

    • Potemkin

      I think it’s easier to port a game to start it from zero and for only one console, when AC is released on 4 different platforms (PS3, Xbox, PC & WiiU). Same happens with CoD, not profitable enough as an exclusive but it is as a multiplatform…

      • Sidney Majurie

        Yeah, I get that. It costs 1 million dollars to port a game to Wii U. My point is, what were their expectations for a so so game with meh visuals on a brand new console with a pretty decent launch line up? They were looking to pull a “Red Steel” on Nintendo fans and it didn’t work. Now they are blaming the sales of this game on the Rayman delay??? These are two completely different types of games with way different audience and appeal. I mean, who are the idiots making these decisions at the top. Really.

        EDIT:
        Just found out that ZombiU grossed roughly $27 million. What was the budget for this game??

        • Potemkin

          Now, that is some weird move Ubisoft pulled off, so my guessing is that Yves was sending a message to Nintendo directly. But hey! at least they released a few games without delays when the Wii U launched.

          • Sidney Majurie

            No, don’t get me wrong. I’m happy with Ubisoft for the most part. I support their games on Wii U as I bought ZombiU day one with my system. I even bought AC3 even though I don’t really like the series and I also have all their games pre-ordered for Wii U(Splinter Cell: Blacklist, Rayman Legends, Watch_Dogs, and yes even AC4). Just want some consistency and credibility from devs I support. But yes, they are Nintendo’s best 3rd party supporter right now!

          • Potemkin

            I was never really a fan of Ubisoft as I always saw their games full of glitches, but I have to admit that they try to please as many people as possible and that is always a good thing, so I respect them for it. Now, in regards of development costs for the Wii U, it is unknown to me, but if I’m not mistaken, developing for the PS3 and 360 used to cost 30 to 40 million dollars for a new franchise, which makes me believe that the development costs for Wii U should be around 40-50 millions.

          • Sidney Majurie

            You’re probably right about the dev costs. It’s a shame they didn’t spend an extra $20 million on ZombiU instead of rushing it out in hopes of earning a quick and easy buck. A few tweaks here and there(graphics, some gameplay elements and online co op) and we might be looking at a smash hit new franchise…

    • frank west

      Ubisoft’s complaint is illogical especially for an new console release title vs a 5yrs out the door install base 70+ million. If you want a game to sell on a console you have to release it with the other console versions with exclusive dlc and promote your product. If its an exclusive keep it an exclusive! or else it will fail at what it originally set out to do and that’s sell consoles specifically the WiiU.

  • iCold

    Damn I liked Zombi U

    well that may have been a different story if they added more to the multiplayer like online matches.

            Sonic 2006 started that problem, Sonic Colors tried to help but died trying. It had good graphics for a Wii game, at least. Maybe Lost World can shock them back to consciousness.

          • Akatosh

            There was a good reason why Sonic 06 caused problems. It crossed a line.

      that’s not something to brag about. seriously

  • Captain7484 .

    It seems like devs need to start consulting Nintendo in their gameplay, graphic, and overall game development, to ensure that their fan base will be interested in the product.. The third party and game sales problem is marketing. They are trying to market their product for a target group that either doesn’t exist or is minimal; and when their product doesn’t sale, they blame Nintendo. Their current situations are products of a poor marketing strategy. The Nintendo audience is very different from the other gaming audiences and value different attributes of the system; for example, price. If a company know that the majority of the audience was lured to the system because of Nintendo’s decent price point, what makes the company think that this audience will buy games recklessly? Cut back the releases and ensure what is being released takes full advantage of the console; in the realm of features, graphics, and game concept. This will sell to Nintendo fans. If a company thinks they can just treat this market group like all of the others, they are in for a rude awakening. They really need to invest in a competent Marketing strategy.. Otherwise, don’t blame the hardware, when the product you try to sell bombs; doing such a thing is counter productive anyway!!!!

    • Leo

      I get a feeling that the same trouble will happen to PS4 and XBone. The home console industry is collapsing and those developers think they can sell games like they used to do in early 00s. Unless they adjust to the actual reality i don’t see a bright future for gaming in the long run. The stores are flooded with garbage and people are MUCH more cautions before purchasing anything. A nice game like ZombiU is in the middle of this vortice that all the industry is falling into and seems to cannot get out. I wonder what will happen when they don’t make profit either in the other consoles as well.

  • http://www.mpt-online.eu/ Sylux

    I honestly can’t blame Ubisoft for stating this, or so to speak set a deadline. Because honestly N what the F are you thinking? That the WiiU sells itself? I’m sorry but I’m starting to lose faith in N. This is by far the worst launch ever of a console, speaking about advertising the system, it’s been almost 8 months now since EU launch, and it’s been 7.5 months since I last saw any advertising for the WiiU.

    There’s about 3 games on WiiU I would like and 2 more coming this year, all of them are 3rd party games, next year we’ll get some heavy hitters, but I’m seriously affraid it’ll be to late by then. EA is a different story they’ve been against WiiU for the reason we all know from the beginning, but Ubisoft setting a deadline so to speak… Maybe now N finally wakes up, this is ridiculous N really, fix it. Been a fan of N since the 80′s and this is the first time I seriously lose faith and might I repeat “might” skip WiiU all together.
    I’m both angry and sad now. Gladly the 3DS rocks at the moment.

          I’ll be waiting for reviews on all of those. Especially Tropical Freeze as I’m still butthurt about not getting Metroid. Anything less than a low 90s average and I’ll avoid it like the plague.

    • Luffy

      Just for the fun of it, (and I’ve been asking this question a lot lately and have yet to have an answer)
      but which console first year was better?

      • http://www.mpt-online.eu/ Sylux

        None has been much better then WiiU launch, but N64, PS, PS2 and Xbox all where better then WiiU launch, I really think N wanted to rush the WiiU to get it out there one year to soon. The only 2 console launches which where almost just as bad where PS3 and 360, every other consoles had better launches then WiiU, and for the record I refer only to the advertising parts of the system, the launch had a pretty big launch library in games, but pretty much everything where direct ports, and very few games which have my interest. That is obviously a personal interest. And is in no way related to everyone, but to a certain group including me.

        Truth for me is that I really see no reason as of why I need a WiiU this year. Maybe someone can convince me to get one this year, but to clearify it, WWHD, Pikmin 3, Mario 3D world, Wonderful 101, game&wario, NFSMWU and Blobs2 are not even close to a reason for me to get a WiiU. Most interest at moment for me would be DS2, ME3, Sonic Lost World, Watch_Dogs, ZombiU and Deus Ex will have my interest. Maybe AC3 and ACIV for this year, nothing else.

        Next year we get X, Bayonetta2, Smash Brothers, maybe new Zelda(if it indeed comes 2014) and perhaps MK8, then I’ll get interested.

        Just for the fun of it it’s all 2014 releases, so maybe you have your answer now? If not, then I can’t help it but then atleast you have my reason.
        Sorry for the long rattle btw.

        • Luffy

          I understand what you mean. You already saw first year where game excited you more then with the Wii U.

          So have I. The GameCube, just with Super Monkey Ball was one of my best launch ever.

          But I believe that we have to look at the bigger picture. It’s not just about me, me, me.

          Sure the playstation 2 had a lot of first years games, but how many where actually good? (and by good, i do not mean that I liked, I mean games that where good)

          I don’t know, but by the end of the year, I will own more games on my Wii U then I have ever own for a console on it’s first year. And they all look to be really good games.

          I understand that you do not find them appealing, but what can I say? People have different taste, and whatever Nintendo does, they will always be in the wrong.

          The one game I would have loved them to do more then any other would have been a sequel to Star Tropics. But I understand that it’s not just about me.

          You know what? I’m not even the biggest fan of Nintendo games. I like them, yes. But they rarely are in my favorite of all times games. But I always do enjoy them.

          Maybe that’s why I can rationalize things easier then if I was a die hard fan of Mario, Zelda or any other of there franchise?

          Also, for the advertising part, yes you are right. I think the best advertise console was the Wii. Adds where just everywhere!

          • http://www.mpt-online.eu/ Sylux

            Satisfying aswer from you, and I think I indeed should look to the bigger picture, just not enough coming this year to pursue me getting a WiiU next year will be a worthwhile year even for me.

            The system sells atleast that’s a good thing, allbeit not great sales so far and a large group is fan of mario3d world and will get wwhd for sure. As I have the game on GC I see no reason to get it again, but I also recomment anyone who hasn’t played it to get this title for sure, wasn’t my fav but certainly a great title.

            Glad we understand eachothers points though.

  • Akatosh

    I’m starting to have a hard time being optimistic anymore.

    I hope Wii U starts selling more, but it’s becoming hard for me to see the realism (which is quite realistic, there was a jump in Wii U sales when tiny little MH3U was released) thanks to all these terrible, terrible, saddening articles. I’ve been looking to PS Vita as inspiration, because that device is as in much a pocket as Nintendo, yet it survives.

    I felt like the 3DS turn around happened overnight though, and the sell-out of ACNF the other day and the little kid I saw playing on the Wii U gives me some hope still.

    Mario’s not saving the princess anymore… drive dem sales skyward!

  • frank west

    I call bull$%*T, seriously Microsofts Xbox had one of the worst console releases in history yet their third party support was amazing! lets face it people there is a huge bias towards Nintendo platforms…example#2 the Wii outsold all lastgen consoles and had almost no third party support.

  • Logan Waltz

    third parties quickly dropping support. funny, because they never supported it to begin with. they’ll release a sequel if more systems sell.

  • Jonn McNally

    Not profitable? How many milkshakes did they drink while sitting on their ass at their computer developing it?

  • joey t

    “this year’s Christmas performance of the Wii U will be one of the most vital in Nintendo’s history”

    Great……. because Nintendo only has to go against two next gen consoles releases at that time, not to mention GTA 5 around the corner which will be selling all through xmas as well. I am a huge Nintendo fan but they are really falling back atm. They really needed something that was all like, ‘holy shit there’s no way a 360 or ps3 could produce that’. and they really don’t have much at all, especially anything coming out this year.

  • Robert

    It might not have been profitable but that is likely due to the Wii U install base. If 20% of people who own Wii U bought the game (made up number), they would sell less copies. They should look at the install base now, and in the future, see how it grows, and assume they will sell more copies when the install base is larger. It’s kind of stupid to say “no sequel” now, rather than wait and see how Wii U performs, or if more copies of Zombi U sell in the future as more people buy Wii U, since there are finally more games coming out for it in the next months.

    • $39063977

      for them to say so, they must have surely done some calculations, right? unless you are in that vicinity of people who think they know more than a multi national multi b/million dollar company in the video game industry. they are not playing party games with their profits. they have teams of market analysts, investment consultants, risk managers, and all sorts of advisors working day and night

      • Robert

        All they said is “Zombi U was not profitable”. That is a valid statement. The calculations I’m talking about have nothing to do with that. To calculate if a sequel will be profitable is a very different calculation. To release a game when no one has the system, versus to release the game when a lot more people have the system… the latter will obviously sell more copies as long as the game is good.

        Also Zombi U is still on the shelf… so it may still become profitable provided the price does not drop too greatly, and people buying the system new remain interested.

    Where did I claim they made profit?

    But in the end, Ubisoft can look at the mirror on this one (and on rayman).
    Game was clearly rushed, and cut short.
    And multiplayer was completely useless implement.

    Sure they didn’t make profit, but doubt it made loss either.

    But you couldn’t know, since you haven’t even touched it.

  • Nintedward

    You were just as wrong last year as you were now. With games like Pikmin 3 , Tropical Freeze , Mario 3D world , Wii fit U , Sonic Lost world , Smash bros , Mario Kart , X , Bayonetta 2 , W101 sales will spike considerably in the next 12 months. All those games I mentioned , the Wiiu hasnt even had 1 exclusive as big as them yet (You could argue NSMBU I suppose and that did sell over 2M)

    Wiiu is fine. Is it selling poorly right now YES , yes it is. Why is that ? Because the enticing games are not here yet. When the enticing games arrive , will it start selling well ? YES , yes it will.

    Go ahead and tell me the huge games I listed won’t dramatically spike the sales , I’ll sit here and laugh at your ignorance.

    Those must be the words you here from every woman in inexistence! Hence, your familiarity! Man, what a god damn loser you are…day after day, article after article, and yet STILL NOTHING BETTER TO DO? What a sad motherfucking life.

  • Petri

    That is just to fool the most simple minded of gamers.
    I’m pretty sure, if those games dont sell enough on ps4 and xb1, The games get magically ported to ps360.

  • Fred

    How is Nintendo to blame when 3rd party games don’t sell well on their system?
    I guess I just don’t understand that.

  • The Clockwork Being

    7. Not only that but he has 2 other accounts to upvote himself.

  • Potemkin

    At least I did upvote him. The man speaks the truth.

  • Petri

    I don’t care, so no need to apologize.

    You cant seriously think that those games could not be done on ps360 or wii u, just because squeenix talks with big words like dx11?

  • Jack5221

    Dude its the same thing. Obviously Nintendo developments right now is going to include their current console Wii U. Either way, if you hate Wii U so much, why do you care about its developments?

  • willweinert

    XD haha, he only had one when I replied.

  • WolfgangAmadeusMozart

    8. He made another sock account and called his mom to upvote his comment as a second guest. That makes a total of 5 upvotes.

  • Petri

    I said “I think it did well”, could add, when considering they sold the game for every 6th console owner.
    Cant find any 3rd party exclusive that has done that well on ps3 or 360 when considering the user base.

    They did well, all things considered, not just units sold vs cost of development.
    I’m sorry I didn’t consider retarded 1/3rd in my phrasing.

    The lack of adult games is why I own every system, but Nintendo’s games are great. They just need more of them! I don’t agree the systems are child’s like ( I’m a 36 year old man who owns his pad ), but the lack of adult software can be glaring at times. They’ll turn it around though… the 3DS success is proof enough. This weekend I played Last Of Us & Scribblenauts… people like different style of games… nothing wrong with that.

  • Petri

    Why are you arguing about opinions?
    Too much time on your hands?

    You haven’t said anything to justify for me to change my opinion.

  • Luca Invernizzi

    I want world peace, a bag of candy, and Justin Bieber to stop singing.

    But, as you can easily imaging, I don’t go on Justin Bieber site blaming him for my lack of candy and every war in africa.

    Guess what critics said Wii U will fail 2012 and then Wii U shocked us. Later critics get upset because Nintendo got the better of them. What they did they increased their power and starting to write bad things about nintendo saying ZombIU got bad reviews and New Super Mario WiI U is a rehash of everything. They said many bad thing about Nintendo Land and so on. Nintendo started to sell badly and nobody ever cared.

  • THEMIGHTYDOOVDE

    He probably loved Nintendo as a child, but now that he’s at that awkward teen stage he’s making himself think that shooting shit up makes him ‘manly’ and family games are for girls, ‘gays’ and casuals!

    Don’t worry, he’ll eventually grow out of it……. probably!

    Uh no. The 3 million sales were from months ago. Its higher then that now.

  • David Porter

    I do.

  • Nintedward

    At the end of the consoles life cycle ? So you’re basically a retard then huh… The console is just over 7 months old. The end of the Wiiu’s life cycle is in 2018 troll.

    Nobody wants Sonic or Mario , right ? You know nothing you annoying prick.

  • DragonSilths

    I honestly don’t know the exact number. What do I look like to you a Nintendo Investor? Im a gamer, I really don’t care about sales numbers. Hell if 1000 people only bought the Wii U well then that’s 1000 people with a brain and is 1000 people I can have a good time with.

  • Akatosh

    Think of a game console like a car dealership. And third party titles like cars… if cars aren’t selling who would YOU blame? The car manufacturers make cars… dealerships sell the cars. If I make a car and it doesn’t sell at a specific dealership, am I going to send any other cars to that dealership? It’s ALL about profit. Ubisoft doesn’t give a shit that you bought and loved zombiu. All they care about is return on their investment. A companies job is to make money.

  • Fred

    Your comparison would make perfect sense if there weren’t any games that sold well on Nintendo Systems, but Nintendo’s games sell like crazy so obviously people that buy Nintendo’s Systems BUY GAMES. They just need to check out what kind of a game it takes to sell on a Nintendo. I could have told you that Zombie U wouldn’t sell well on a Nintendo, but I guarantee you that Rayman Legends will sell well on Wii U even after Ubisoft managed to piss off a lot of potential buyers of the game. Zombie U would have sold MUCH BETTER on a Playstation or an Xbox. Ubisoft (or any other 3rd party publisher for that matter) needs to quit selling games to the wrong group. Putting Zombie U on a Nintendo System is like trying to sell a Toyota Prius in a dealership where over 90% of the customers buy Big powerful trucks. The Prius is a great car, but most people looking for a big powerful truck aren’t going to look twice at a Prius even if it’s a quality vehicle.

  • oontz

    That’s EXACTLY my point. So how many new Priuses will be shipped to be sold at that dealership in the future… ZERO.

  • Fred

    That’s right so if Zombie U doesn’t sell well it’s not Nintendo’s fault, it’s Ubisoft’s fault as they shouldn’t have made it. If they wanted to have a Wii U launch game it should have been Rayman Legends not Zombie U. If they want to make Zombie it should have been Zombie 4 (PS4) or Zombie One (Xbox One). Ubisoft is at fault NOT Nintendo!

  • oontz

    No it is nintendo’s fault for only focusing their efforts on THER games for the past 3 genrations. Now when someone buys a nintendo console the NEED to buy another system to be able to enjoy all the 3rd party content. Instead of going to one dealership we all need to go to two!

  • Fred

    Are you telling me that Nintendo should spend money to advertise Ubisoft games?

  • Akatosh

    Lame man.
