Holding off major first party releases is stupid

#1TrueBlue91Posted 5/9/2013 1:20:00 PM
Third parties are reluctant to make a major release early in a console's lifespan because of obvious reasons, and even when the install base gets larger the game will likely become largely irrelevant as the console's library improves.
But first party is different - it can remain significant/successful for an insanely long time if it's a major release, meaning there's no real risk and it's a win-win. I don't understand why consoles still launch with awful game libraries. This console should have launched with Mario Kart U or something, that would have done wonders for Wii U. Thoughts?

They launched it too early.

My thought is that you're clueless, they aren't holding back software just because. Iwata admitted HD development was a bigger undertaking than they expected. When the games are done and up to Nintendo's high standard of quality they'll be released.

See post above yours. They should have just released it later.

Excellent game, but come on, lacks selling power. Mario Kart stays on the charts for... well, pretty much forever.

Except there is a risk of 1st party games needing to be rushed at launch. I don't think there have been any system that has released with a decent amount of first party titles.

F.T.F.Y., this game was clearly made to be played on PC. It pretty much doesn't count as a Wii U game.
