Wii and Wii U Databases and Collection Support Added

Posted January 22, 2013 08:15 AM by Webmaster

Blu-ray.comAfter years of PS3 support and almost a year of Xbox 360 support, we have now added Wii and Wii U support to the site. This means you can now also keep track of your Wii/Wii U collection, price track Wii/Wii U games etc.

Since the Wii and Wii U databases have just been started, only a few games have been added, so if you want to add a game to your collection you will probably have to add the game to the database first using the Wiki (go to an existing game, click on the link "Add new game").

Wii U uses Blu ray format of 25GB disc for games but it does not playback blu ray video.

There is XBOX360 support on this site? it has to be removed and Wii/WiiU is the worst pile of crap ever released, first the hardware is pathetic, the WiiMote has random motion detection in 98% of games based on when you do the move rather than detecting the move itself, the iPad lloking controller has abysmal range (with a concrete wall it is about 5 meters) and the ads promote it as a portable console, which it is not, the new "gameplay" elements it brings are overly repetitive and sometimes just don't work.
Best thing to sum it up (as said up here already) : it has no link to Blu-ray and never will.

It is somewhat technologically possibly comparable to Blu-ray as it should hold 25 Gb of data, but will not read on a Blu-ray player and will not read a Blu-ray disc.

Great addition. Wii? Everyone who owns that has it collecting dust in a closet or basement. How about 3DS maybe as well. I would just say DS but the support for that just ended. All 3DS now. Way bigger user base for that than Wii U whose life will be short lived. New XBOX and PS4 will make that thing look like Atari.

No, Wii U does not play Blu-ray, it has it's own Optical Disc like the previous Wii.

With regards to this announcement, however, it seems like this site is becoming the premium place for everything, which is awesome

Why so much complaining? If you don't want to use it for Wii or Wii U, then don't. No one cares if you think they aren't cool enough.
And for the record, my family still buys games for the Wii and play it pretty much everyday. And a Wii U will be in my future at some point.

@TheTenth. If you're not interested in a feature offered by this site, don't use that feature. It's that simple. Demanding that XBOX 360 cataloging be removed from the site is beyond silly. And why rant about your dislike of the Wii/Wii U here? Many people enjoy them and can now catalog their collections right alongside their movies on this site. It's convenient and OPTIONAL. Why the negativity?

Can we get Xbox 360, Wii, and Wii U added to the search bar at the top of the site? Right now we have to go through a few pages to get to a search function for them.

So glad I didn't waste my money on the WiiU, maybe it'll get some cool exclusive games at some point but until then I will not pay 350 bucks for HD Mario.

I'm not getting an "Add to Collection" button on the Wii/Wii U game pages. Am I missing something?

When the next Metroid & Zelda games come out will be time to get a wii u for me. Loved the metroid primes but I want a new sprawling 2d metroid game!

lol people saying the Wii U will be short lived. Remember 6 years ago people were saying that just after the Wii launch? And all I can say is, mine certainly never gathered dust. If you buy a games console for the sole purpose of jumping on the bandwagon and playing Wii Sports and Wii Fit, it's bound to sit there in the corner unused after a while. If like me, you buy a games console to play a host of fantastic games which you cannot get on any other console...well, you get the picture.

I think you'll find the next PS and Xbox will take more inspiration from Nintendo's innovation than ever before. Just simply sticking the latest and greatest computer chips into a quite size-able box (as past Sony and Microsoft original launches have proven) isn't enough anymore. There comes a point when an improvement in technology just doesn't produce noticeable improvement in gaming experience. There's only so much resolution and frames per second the human eye can detect. They need to come up with something more now. Why do you think they both jumped on the motion control bandwagon?

You still can't actually add New Super Mario Bros. as an error "No such movie, id: 4" occurs.

The Wii U is failing. It may have the power to play next-gen games now, but it's core of customers hasn't changed.
