Killer Freaks for Wii U didn’t see controller until day before E3

 

Killer Freaks was one of the first games announced for the Wii U. Guillaume Brunier shared that they:

…worked with the early Wii U dev kits before E3, but even we hadn’t seen the actual device until a day before the show. So, they were working with a controller that would have worked in a similar way, or something like that.

But it still amuses me that it was so last-minute to see the hardware they were building the game for. You can click here to watch footage from the demo they showed during E3.

Nintendo has “completely blown the Wii U”, says Michael Pachter

There is a rumors/ facts that a lot of favourite industry analyst are saying in recent days:

I think they’ve completely blown the Wii U by not telling people what the price is going to be. It’s going to launch at $249 because it has to. I think they’re dead anyway because Xbox with Kinect will be priced below that by the time they launch. Wii was a bubble and that the Wii bubble has burst. Nintendo Wii fans are now playing Farmville. The Wii was a bubble. The Wii bubble has burst. (from the 3dsblog)

There is a rumors that a lot of  casual gamers have moved to the super-casual platforms like Facebook, but to say that Nintendo has “completely blown” the Wii U? We know it’s an analysts job to predict the future, but every prediction these folks seem to make seem to be based on a ridiculously small amount of information.
