I will most likely not be buying the next XBox or Playstation anyway, but I will not buy any multiplats from now on, even if the Wii U isnt the console that gets skipped. I am doing this because I find it ridiculous to have a game be multiplat, but not available on all consoles. In some cases its understandable (You couldnt really put Skyrim on the Wii) but in most cases there is no reason a game that is on 2 consoles isnt on all 3. Either go multiplat or stay exclusive. Thats not to say I think the Wii U will miss all the multiplats because it is in its first few months, but once it gets a decent install base there will be no excuse for developers to ignore it.

There arent really that many I care about. Most multiplats dont really interest me very much. There will be some such as Skyrim that I had a great time with, but for the most part I wont really miss them. Dont give me this huge list of games and say I am factually wrong; because I'm not saying there aren't good ones, just that few interest me.

You're going to miss out on some good games.

Out of curiosity, will you also boycott games on the Vita, PS4, 720, and Wii U (but not the 3DS), or on the PS4, 720, and Wii U (but not the PC)?

It really only makes sense from a monetary aspect. Why put Tomb Raider on the Wii U if there are only 2 million owners and the game will struggle to break 500k sales? The developer/publisher just won't admit to that though so they make up some crap about "not being able to figure anything for the controller". >_<

These days, all the kids are playing M rated games while the adults are lining up for Pokemon. Which game is a kid's game now?

We're talking about next-gen here my little virus. No one cares about 360 and Ps3 games anymore.

I will not count handhelds or PC. If a game is on Wii U, PS4 and XBox its fair game. If its on XBox/PS4, PS4/WIIU or 720/WIIU I will not, but were there ANY multiplats this gen on wii and PS3/360 but not both?

I will accept multiplats skipping it until around Christmas, but not after, especcially when the developers conveniently forget this to support the XBox/PS4 but still apply it to Nintendo. By Christmas the install base will be enough to justify porting.
