Hopefully these will be cheaper on Amazon

Hopefully these will be cheaper on Amazon


maybe in january, not now though

Usually only 10/11 months in my calendar year by the time any 'official' ones reach my biting point of around a quid
Haven't voted either way btw

This is great deal, I bought Zelda at full price earlier this year, should have waited.

I suppose this calendar dropping to half price is at least something for for all those people who bought a Wii U solely for Breath of the Wild to now find out it's been binned and will only be getting released on the Switch (_;)

Just check the link above which is one of many on the topic and bear in mind we all know Nintendo are already trying to airbrush the Wii U from their portfolio, bit like how liberals & wet reds have started pretending the EU referendum never happened (_;)

Would this be the same Nintendo who around this time three years ago said they 'categorically had no plans' to switch the original Wii servers off only to announce the very next week they were doing it in the new year?

And the game was playable this year at E3 on Wii U. So development wasn't 'quickly' shifted solely to Switch was it

How many systems has The Last Guardian been shifted from till it finally came out on this gen?

I'm not really bothered either way, I got a Wii U and I will 90% certain be buying a Switch too but to be honest with you I think Nintendo are run by a bunch wxnxexs who don't really want to modernise at all.

There are blind fan babies of all platforms but in my humble opinion the Nintendo ones are the biggest clowns of all because they're defending the indefensible.

Nintendo will pull the plug on this title on Wii U because that's exactly the sort of thing they do. We as good as know this new console is not as powerful as the standard PS4 because they got plenty of form for that too. They'll most likely end up alienating third party developers with the Switch like they always do n all, the fan babies will defend them as ever, and then they'll not get it why they've messed up again.

If everyone was like me and bought every console when they come out Nintendo would be fine but most people tend to only buy one. See for every wonderful exclusive Nintendo bring out there are 25, 30 or maybe even 40 great multi plats come out on Xbox and Playstation. If Nintendo don't get a fair chunk of them 25/30/40 titles on their machine 9 out of 10 console gamers will not be buying it.

If Switch fails this will be Nintendo's final venture in to home consoles. Ok the handheld market has been a totally different story and that's why they've tried to combine the two with this concept but if the games don't come people won't buy it, very simple really.

If they don't compete with Sony and Microsoft then they are finished as a home console, the only way I can see them pulling this off is with the handheld angle of the Switch. Though as you touched on yourself they're desperate to keep the price down(they will then charge us 50 quids for 'extended life' battery packs that last longer than the supplied 45 minute ones) so will cut back on power but therein lies the fault of their policy: They are going for a handheld you can plug in to the telly rather than the other way round, so we're back to a weaker machine that the vast majority of console buyers don't want and the handheld market is going more the way of smart phones each passing year.

Nintendo have a history of going back on stuff they say, sometimes nigh on instantly, so I really do have a gut feeling the new Zelda won't be on the Wii U. So the old man kicked the bucket but his clone apprentices have now took over, I really don't believe they are capable of changing because they are too stuck in their ways.

Sorry to totally disagree with your claim people can't afford all three consoles, right now you can get an Xbone S for a two spot, a PS4 slim for a two spot and supposedly the Switch will be two n half. The PS3 was around four n half at launch a decade ago, if all the platforms have decent content to offer more people will buy them all or at least two of the three but Nintendo lost that consumers' second console mantle with the Wii U.

Ok perhaps I'm looking at it from a pessimistic perspective but you're looking at it through Mario tinted bins, this coming system is do or die for Ninty and I'm far from confident it's going to do. If they pull the plug on Zelda Wii U they deserve to die and that's it.

Chill out? Not been this chilled out all year, I'm so terminal from man flu that rigor mortis set in 24 hours ago so you're barking up the wrong tree thinking I'm freaking out with the hump

A calendar deal would have to be pretty cheap, given you get a free calendar of your choice on a £50 spend.
