AAA Developers don't care if their game is not on the WiiU. Something must have happened during the Nintendo history for not caring to release their games on the WiiU.

Crysis 3
Skyrim
GTA5

And now Dark Souls.

Pretty simple really. When your target demographic already owns a Ps3, 360, or gaming computer, and the newest similarly powered console only has 400K units out there, what point is there in developing for it?

Quite simply put, Publicity. I mean, look at the attention that ZombiU got. So you think it would have been as big a deal if it were a 360 or PS3 exclusive?

Companies either:
-Just don't feel like creating ports after the fact
-Can't say anything due to NDA

Just because a game hasn't been announced or is mentioned by the company to not be coming out, doesn't automatically mean that company isn't taking a system seriously, or that the system is a failure.

Nintendos demographics are different. PC/360/ps3 gamers are usually 18-35 year old males. Nintendo concentrates on what's left over. Te WiiU is also a console designed to compete directly with the ps3/360 which are both being replaced wi much stronger models in a year. Why spend e time and money to train up on old tech when they can finish up their final current gen projects on proven systems and start programming and creating new IP for true next gen systems?

No I don't, but we're talking about AAA games, not ZombiU. If a developer sets out to design a piece of crap, it might be worth putting on a new console starved of games.

Fanboys are a cancer to gaming but Sony fanboys are a particularly aggressive and repulsive form.
