This sucks the Wii U is getting strangled to death by lack of games. Grrrrrr. I may have to pass on this system too many games are going to other systems. I have purchased a gamecube, a wii and this system I am going to pass on unless its slashed a whole lot more then what it is now. Sad, Nintendo gets no love from game developers.
I'd say its sadder Nintendo designed such a weak console to try and raise thier profit margin instead of actually allowing developers to advance thier craft forward by giving me modern tools.
Your company doesn't still have you using 16 bit programs on Windows 3.1 486 computers and analog phones do they?
EA may be mouth-breathing demons (in comparison to other video game companies of course) but they have the right to make money. S***ty sales and a lack of partnership is more than enough to stop supporting Nintendo.
What's interesting is how EA easily fluctuates their opinions on something based on sales. If they're hyped up about the PS4/Next-box just imagine what tune they'll be singing when the 360 sales outsell both versions combined (because that's what happens when you release a cross-gen game, especially one reliant on multiplayer). I imagine they'll start getting real pissy about the mobile market as well. Truly a despicable company.
lack of partnership is more than enough to stop supporting Nintendo.
This always baffled me. Why is it always Nintendo that has to provide partnerships? Unless I'm completely out of the loop I never see people praising their partnerships with Microsoft/Sony/Steam, they just get out and make worthwhile games and are successful. The one time we heard of a Nintendo partnership (an unprecedented one at that) it resulted in a late port and a handful of annual sports titles. Take note that this is all that was announced long before poor sales data started rolling in.
When people say Nintendo needs to do something about 3rd party support are they talking about paying for pre-order/DLC exclusives or something? Do they want Nintendo to fund/co-develop an exclusive/port? Bigger revenue cuts for certain publishers? Maybe it's not as shallow as money though, since Real Racing 3 isn't ported to any console (or PCs) yet. They could make bank ripping off those that don't smartphone game.
