UK Stores Worried About Uncharted 4, Zelda Wii U And More Getting Delays

UK Stores Worried About Uncharted 4, Zelda Wii U And More Getting Delays News  Uncharted 4: A Thief's End The Legend of Zelda E3 2015

UK retailers are a little worried about games like Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and Zelda Wii U getting delayed until 2016. They are very anxious about E3 2015.

Fall 2015 looked like a stacked time of year as Uncharted 4, Zelda Wii U, Dead Island 2 and The Division were all going to be out then. However, unexpected delays made all of these games’ release dates get pushed back until 2016. This has made UK retailers worried.

As reported by MCV, many UK retailers are saddened by the delays of big games such as Uncharted 4 and Zelda Wii U. With the loss of such popular games, this of course impacts their own revenue.

UK retailers are hoping new games are all announced at E3 2015. They want E3 2015 to “deliver” or else their end of year numbers will look very low. Considering how popular games like Uncharted 4 and Zelda Wii U will be, you can understand their concerns.

Xbox UK is confident with their lineup for Xbox One. Their marketing boss, Harvey Eagle, noted games like Halo 5: Guardians and Rise of the Tomb Raider will give their console a boost. He also listed third party releases like Black Ops 3 and Star Wars Battlefront as must have games for Fall 2015.

    Just like ps4 had no releases worth a damn in 2014…2015 looks to be the exact same. Feel sorry for these psbore fanboys..so many idiots in this world. As an xbox one owner i am gearing up for another huge slew of beautiful exclusives. Not to mention windows 10/directx12, full TV dvr capabilities, and hololense. Great work microsoft !

    • xxhighcxx

      I play Bloodborne everyday and have a blast. I must be an “idiot” for enjoying games.

      Also there is a game called Helldiver’s that is awesome and it makes me sad personally that Xbox people will never be able to play it.

      • Naaaaaaaahy

        Bloodborne 15-18 fps. Greatness huh…Lolololo. Helldiver huh no thanks still playing Ori which has a better metacritic score.

        • xxhighcxx

          If you have fun playing a game then your a gamer if you only worries about graphics and specs then your a cynical asshole. If you can’t enjoy games then don’t talk about things you don’t shit about.

          Also Helldiver’s has brought me a feeling I haven’t felt ever in gaming a sense of comradely and pitching in towards something bigger. It is one of the best games in recent memory. And yes I have played ori, ori is good and all but doesn’t give me the feels that Helldiver’s does on a daily basis.

          Here’s a word of advice don’t be the village asshole.

          • A loser for a loser

            Whats the matter…This is what ps4 trolls do all day in xbox one articles. You probably know them or arw them…revolver ocelot and eric metal and lacerz. Isnt this fun ??? Ps4 sucks pal…its games suck compared to xbox one and that is fact.

        • Guest

          Didn’t your “God” Spencer say resolution/framerate doesn’t make a game good or not?

          Also I don’t see your logic about basing the quality of a game on metacritic scores. So are Flower, Fez and Bastion better than Ori?

          • this is funny

            Awee u mad bro ?…a ps4 troll whining that specs dont make a great game ! This is funny. Sorry 15-18fps makes bloodborne worthless according to your ps4 fanbase.

          • Guest

            Typical lying trolling xbot. Let me know which PS4 fan called a game worthless if it’s 15 fps.

            Keep trying little xbot. :)

          • naaaahy

            Umnm…no xbox one games run that low. But if one did thwm trolls would be lined up to make a comment.

          • Guest

            You seem confused. People aren’t calling a game worthless if it has low resolution/framerate. People are just stating the fact that one console often have multiplatform running at higher resolution/framerate than the other.
            Consoles are being compared, it has nothing to do with game quality. -_-

          • confused wheres the greatness

            You seem confused…if minor spec differences are so important…then a game running at 15-18 fps, which is extremely low for next gen machines, cant be any good. Likewise on the witcher 3 the xbox one frame rate is significantly higher than ps4 while the rez is matched or at 900 which is an un-noticeable difference. So your ps4 version looks the same and runs worse than the xbox one version. You seem confused…this means ps4 sucks right ???

          • Guest

            What are you talking about? NO ONE said Call of Duty Ghosts was a crap game on XB1 just because it has lower resolution.

            The whole argument is if you are going to buy a next gen console mostly for multiplatform than PS4 seem to be have an edge as multiplatform regularly tend to have higher resolution/framerate on PS4. There is no need to be upset about it.

            Your second comment is subjective (as usual) so I’ll ignore that. :)

          • Naberios

            You seem to be the one confused. Talking like Bloodborne runs at 18 fps the entire way through rather than dipping there because the frame rate isn’t locked. And by all accounts, it’s a well received game by those who’ve actually played it. Which is the important thing I think. Then you go on to lie about The Witcher 3 having the same showing on both consoles & running worse on the PS4? True garbage fanboy comments. If you’re going to bash a console, at least try to use some actual facts in the process. Makes you look like less of an ass that way.

          • Revolver Ocelot

            Framerate for TW3 is capped on PS4 and uncapped on Xbone. Meanwhile the Xbone still can’t handle it at 900p. They should have dropped it to 600.

          • Revolver Ocelot

            Ryse ran in the mid teens and Dead Rising 3 dropped to 10fps.

            I’d lost something more recent but nothing’s been released on the Shitbox Done.

    • Guest

      lol more useless subjective arguments.

      Why don’t you talk with facts?
      The xbox one has 3 exclusives. One is a generic racer. One is a collection of old halo ports and finally you have Sunset Overdrive that could very well end up on PC. This year they have another Halo and another Forza.

      The XB1’s AAA exclusives only seems to come in oct-nov. There are long periods without any major exclusive. 10-11 month period. -_-

      You might find this brilliant but me personally I don’t find it great especially when I look at what the WiiU and PS4 has. :)

      • Guest

        lol. Wii U has almost nothing this year either.

        • Guest

          Your comment is so funny When you consider that the wii U has around 20 major exclusives unlike XB1’s 3.

          Oh and almost nothing this year? ha ha ha
          You really seem clueless. Star Fox, Xenoblade, Splatoon, Yoshi’s Wooly world, Kirby, Mario maker just to name a few.
          Yeah, let’s compare it to the 2 AAA exlusives the XB1 gets.. ha ha ha

        • hihowareyou232 .

          What?!?!?! Wii U has Splatoon, Xenoblade X, Mario Maker, Star Fox, Yoshis’ Wolly World, etc. in 2014 Wii U had exclusives like Smash Bros, Mario Kart, Bayonetta 2, Hyrule Warriors, Captain Toad, etc. Nintendo is killing it this gen with exclusives, what’s hurting them is shotty internet, lack of a unified account system, and the name “Wii U”. Game wise though, this generation goes to Nintendo on first party and exclusive games alone. If games truly make a console, then Wii U has them. Zelda Wii U is the game I’m most anticipating though, I wish Nintendo would at least say something about this year :(

        Derps back.

        • Guest

          I don’t know what you mean.

    • therealmattheew

      I don’t know what youre talking about?? Didn’t 2014 have Killzone and Infamous. 2015 The order and Bloodborne..

    • jason witten 82

      So many idiots in this world? Your a douce

    • Revolver Ocelot

      Meanwhile FartzaFailEver has to wait nine months for games to show up on the Shitbox. Sad.

    • TylerTerror1089

      And Xbox One has so many more games.. I’m Nintendo fan and say what you want but the Wii U has way more games than both next gen consoles. Xbox has Sunset Overdrive, Dead Rising 3 and that’s just about it. It’s getting Halo 5 at the end of the year and that’s all. Playstation 4 has Bloodbourne, Infamous Second Son and that’s pretty much it. Wii u has Mario Kart 8, Bayonetta 2, Hyrule Warriors, Super Mario 3D World, Super Smash Bros. and Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze. I know that the Wii U has no third party support so the other consoles kick the shit out of it in that area but looking at exclusives there’s no question Wii U dominates. And we’re getting Xenoblade Chronicles X, Fire Emblem x Shin Megami Tensai, Star Fox, and Mario Maker. Seems my 300 dollar “POS” system gets more for its money then your 500 “Best Console Evaaaaa” system.

  • xxhighcxx

    I still play the last of us factions mode daily so I really don’t care about uncharted for awhile. Also star wars battlefront comes out so I wouldn’t even get U4 till next year anyways. on my Xbox one I play MCC(halo 2) and state of decay everything else has been a disappointment including this new halo 5(played the beta) that is not fun and not halo anymore. And it really is a bummer for Zelda Wii u, I know there just gonna make it for there new “NX” console which is total bullshit.

    • Guest

      I don’t think the new zelda will be made for NX. We still don’t have much details about what NX will be. I’m just hoping it’s not Wii U’s replacement.

      • xxhighcxx

        That’s my sad sad guess is that it will be a Wii u without the tablet controller essentially spitting in Wii u owners faces.

        • Guest

          But they showed gamepad integration when they showed the game at E3. That’s I still think it’s mainly going to be a wii U game.

  • waiting fir greatness ??

    Pretty sad that ps4 has essentially nothing worth mentioning for the rest of 2015. Oh well xbox one time for me with the best games available. Gears, Halo, Fable, Forza and Tomb Raider. Windows 10/dirext x12, hololense thrown in this year. Love me my xbox one.

    • xxhighcxx

      I have tons to play. This is not valid. And it has been proven over and over that direct x12 WILL NOT EFFECT DEVELOPMENT ON A GAME.
      Look it up its plastered all over the internet.

      • bardock5151

        Proven? Is it out already?

    • Guest

      The funny thing is that you MS fanboys always bring out the same useless subjective arguments. Or maybe you are the same MS fanboy using different tag names?

      Anyway, why don’t you talk with facts?

    • Demfax

      Ageeed…its also sad that their only decent game bloodborbe runs at a frame rate of 15-18fps. Add to that witcher 3 just released and runs at a significantly higher frame rate while looking the same with dynamic rez. When will these ps4 fools realize that a game with a smoother frame rate and and unnoticeable rez difference is preferable. Xbox one just has better games and thats why it outsold ps4 in April. Funny thing is directx12 and Esram sdk are still to be implemented.

      • Revolver Ocelot

        FartzaFailEver talking to himself. Pathetic.

        Xbone selling 187,000 units in April. Even more pathetic.

      • stoutforbreakfast

        The difference is the witcher 3 will look shitty because of varying frame rates. Back and forth between 40 and 15 fps doesn’t look good. Ps4 may be locked at 30fps but the overall experience will be more enjoyable. And at 1080p to boot. Power of the cloud derp. Power of dx12 derp. It just isn’t enough. I mean if the stupid little gimmicks worked wouldn’t Sony just do the same thing and outshine the pissbox one again?

    • Revolver Ocelot

      Pretty sad that FartzaFailEver still makes multiple new posts under different names.

  • Min64

    Yeah it is kind of slim. I read that Mad Max might release in 2015. If so thats going to be amazing.

  • hihowareyou232 .

    Zeldas’ delay is the one that stings the most…I should’ve seen it coming though, console Zelda games have been delayed ever since Ocarina of Time on the N64 :(

  • Revolver Ocelot

    UK retailers should get a more varied customer base and not just 8 year olds who need Mummy to buy their games for them, then.

  • Roukee

    Ppl keep saying ps4 has nothing else coming this year… Guess we don’t have many RPG fans cause persona 5 comes out this year
