How will Wii U compete with the increasing popularity of PlayStation 4?

Why is Monster Hunter 3 on the list??

Anyway, the year was pretty lackluster overall, but I'm still satisfied with my purchases, especially Super Mario 3D World, which is obviously the best Wii U game out right now.

It has its own unique essence.

I'm probably gonna grab one up for Black Friday, I'm dying to play SM3DW and MK8.

Ehh I wouldn't recommend a gamecube hd port that's being charged for $50.
If you really want to play it, then buy it used. :C

Except it has Miiverse compatibility, a better triforce hunt, gamepad compatibility, off screen play and is, of course, HD.

There's plenty of reason to buy it for people who haven't experienced this masterpiece on Gamecube yet. Stop being so negative in every single nintendo news article there is.

All in all, great list, if I had the money I would pick up some of these titles, probably going to have to choose one to buy.

Soul Calibur II has trophies/achievements, online compatibility, and is in HD. Yet Namco is only charging $20.
KH 1.5 has 2 games and an hour long cutscene "movie" and is being charged only $40.
DMC Collection includes 3 games for $30.

Compared to Nintendo's pricing of Wind Waker, a single game for $50. Yeah you're right there's nothing wrong with the pricing. In fact people should buy the game new and support it so Nintendo can charge more absurd prices!

Well, if you look at it another way, a used copy of the Gamecube version will cost you almost as much. Not saying that justifies the price of the Wii U version, but either way your stuck paying out the nose for the game. Used copies of Wind Waker HD won't be much cheaper than new copies so sending Nintendo a message that way won't be easy, the difference in price is too small for that.

If I wanted to play Windwaker in HD, I could just go buy a used copy and play it on the Dolphin emulator on my PC.

You can blame the new lighting engine for that. I sincerely doubt that it was cheap to implement into the game. Oh, and it being a remake with new features (not just "it's in HD with trophies lel") probably doesn't help with financial matters either.

NFS Most Wanted U isn't on the list. Pretty disappointing. Assassins Creed IV: Black Flag and COD Ghosts are worth picking too, damn it. I'm disappointed, bluexy.

Dilute, as with the other Neoseeker Gift Guide(PS3, Xbox 360, etc), he only lists the exclusives, which makes sense rather than listing multi platform titles.
Notice how those games aren't in the other Gift Guides as well, not just Wii U.

Adding online to SC (as piss poor as it was) also wasn't cheap. Neither is the FFX-X2 hd ports and those have completely revamped OSTs, a new story fitted in, new models, UI overhaul for higher res, and so on and it's only $40 for the 2 games (in japan it's even being sold cheaper separately I believe).

Nintendo knows that it can sell a near 10 year old port at practically full price because their nintendo and their games don't devalue. It has nothing to do with cost and everything to do with people going rabid for zelda and mario.
