why is there no games for Wii U in UK Supermarkets?

Is there a reason for this

How comes some devs are not fully supporting it eg EA not making some games for it.

There are only two possible opinions, my opinion, and the wrong opinion.

Wii U has had an increase in sales thanks to Asda

Why dont you go to a normal game store instead of a supermarket.

I love how none of this **** gets done for trolling. Typical GameFAQs moderation.

Although this will vary based on the supermarket, most supermarkets will try not to carry games that don't sell in fairly large numbers. On most supermarket shelves, what you'll find is the guaranteed hits - FIFA, Call of Duty, Battlefield, Mario games, and so on, probably alongside a weird random mix of games that they thought might have been popular, a year or two ago, but didn't work out well and they're still trying to sell for a silly price.

Wii U games won't be doing the volumes necessary for them to make any effort to stock them in most supermarkets. The Wii U's userbase is small enough that most of them will be price-savvy gamers, buying online or bargain-hunting, and that means that supermarkets don't get the sales from Wii U games that they'd need to keep on restocking.

Asda's price cuts certainly should not be interpreted as them wanting to increase their support for the Wii U.

At best, some supermarkets in my country sometimes put up a laptop or desktop or tablet for sale. But ah... that's it. No game consoles or games or anything.

Because Wii U games are selling horribly right now.
