REALLY let's do FACTS: nintendo, 3rd paries and wii u's bleak future

#1grandabxPosted 12/24/2012 12:40:30 PM
1. for three generations, nintendo has been severely lacking in 3rd party support - Fact

2. supporters for nintendo have said that nintendo's innovation would shine through the absence of 3rd party support - Fact

3. nintendo hasn't shown SOFTWARE that is revolutionary in over a decade. they've been milking the same three franchises by throwing familiar names in their titles or just plainly xeroxing - Fact

4. software developers want technology that pushes their imaginations to the limits and nintendo continues to give them only what THEY want tech-wise - Fact

5. ps3 and 360 have 140 million plus combined consoles sold along with 10's of millions of pc gamers shows that the wii u is NOT needed to create profit - Fact

6. 3rd party games sell a lot worse on nintendo consoles - Fact

7. most 3rd parties are avoiding the wii u at this current time because of installed base, risk of bad sales and a lack of a real incentive - Fact

after looking at these facts i can only tell you that it LOOKS like the wii u will be even worse than the wii when it comes to software support.

1. wii has a massive installed based.
2. it was cheaper than it's competition.
3. it did something that you couldn't get anywhere else at that time.
4. it had a killer app(wii sports)

these four things are what the wii u are missing to be successful at THIS time.

software is the key and wii u is locked out of the house.

3rd parties know people who really play games don't choose sides. they buy because they enjoy what is given to them. not pretend just to keep allegiance to a company that just wants profit. if i'm not happy i'm not supporting. plain and simple.

Total nonsense. I love how you combine the Xbox 360 and PS3 sales into one like it is just one platform.

Also I love how this must be the first console launch for a lot of people. There are a ton of games at launch for the U. I own 8 retail games (Scribblenauts, Sonic Racing, Zombi U, Mario, Nintendo Land, Black Ops 2, AC3, and Tekken) plus Little Inferno from the Eshop (Look up my NNID DarthVargi if you don't believe me). Not to mention I have all three major platforms plus the two handhelds (Vita and 3DS), again look up my name if you doubt it. I think this was the best launch since the Dreamcast and maybe even better than that.

Did you expect it to launch with a thousand games or something? Yeah some of the launch games are ports and I've been frustrated with third party developers not releasing updates on the Wii U (not sure if it's a Nintendo thing or them, I do Nintendo took forever to approve Sega's update of Sonic Racing). However the launch overall has been very good and I've played a 100 hours so far on my Wii U. Compare that to my 360 or PS3 and it's about half of the time combined.

I've had a blast with my U, if you think it's overpriced or whatever, that's fine wait for it. However to make up bologna about it is pretty sad. I am concerned a bit for third party support, but we have to remember most of them are under Christmas trees. The only territory I see the Wii U struggling in is Europe, but hopefully they will have an exclusive at some point that appeals to that market.
