Annnnnd this is precisely why the casual gamer crowd should not be catered to forever, and why going mobile/IOS games only will eventually spell the end for a development company.

The game industry cannot be supported and run by people who don't give two damns about games in the first place and only see them as something to play on the bus, or for an hour or two a week. Those types of people aren't going to be spending any major amount of money on games, simply because they won't see any need.

problem is those peple outnumber gamers by 100 to 1.
and if a hundred people spend even only 50 bucks a year for games,u gotta spill five grand to get even,now maybe you do,i don't know,but i know i don't,cause i can't.And like me many others i'm sure just cannot afford to spend the amount of money needed to make the niche gamer's market equivalent to the casual mass market,which makes(sadly,some would say)Nintendo(or anyone else)'s decision to keep catering to that audience economically wise.

They launched with virtually no games.

The Wii U is in trouble if they don't get some of their first party titles out soon. They launched with a handful of original titles and some ports of games already out.

and yes I know that most systems don't launch with a huge library I think if they were hands down trying to reclaim home system dominance and take out 360 and PS4 they needed to launch with a few more stellar titles.


Around 10+ games= no games maybe you should go back to school and leran math again

Playstation 3's launch was horrible, utter garbage. Now it's thriving.

Nintendo will be fine.


Didn't PS3 at least do well in Japan?

But that is a detail you really can't overlook. People buy a new system for new experiences. It's not even as if the Wii U versions of those games play any better than the 360 / ps3 versions (and certainly nowhere near the pc versions). You can't really claim multiplats as a strength of the system since outside of that launch window devs seem to be giving the Wii U an awful lot of the cold shoulder. No DmC, no Tomb Raider, no GTA 5, no Revengeneance, no Castlevania LoS 2...

Really the only reason right now I can see to own a Wii U is Nintendo first party titles but the problem there is they aren't out yet. The way things stand I do honestly think the Wii U is likely to die from lack of oxygen before they can arrive.



The criticism was that the Wii U had no games, which is false. No one claimed that multiplats are a strength of the Wii U. But it has them, just as other consoles have had.

And there are a few first party games with more coming. As a company criticized for supporting third parties, Nintendo is in a tough position: If they release several first party games, they're choking out third parties. If they give third parties more opportunity, they're criticized for not offering more first party games.

Now, if you want to complain about a lull in game releases, that's somewhat more understandable, but as the article I linked shows, the Wii U launch games came out more up front rather than spread out, so it's a matter of perception. IMO, I think it's important to have a steady stream to keep the interest up.

"I'm confused how they sold so many Wii U to begin with. An severely underpowered console with a giant controller was bound to have a small market. "LOL! Look the controller has a screen!" Yeah, so, the Dreamcast had that too. Ask Sega how that went."
