If you were calling the shots at a developer studio, would you target the Wii U? - Results (160 votes)
Yes. A 3.5 million & barely growing install base is more than enough to make it worthwhile to target Wii U exclusively

Yes, but not exclusively. I'd develop for multiple systems and spend a minimal amount of time to port to Wii U.

No, it wouldn't be worth the time or money to support Wii U.

I would only make games for the PS4 and Wii U since those are the only platforms that I see as charming. Xbone is a Microshill SpyBox and PC has one of the worst core fanbases ever.

No almost all Wii U owners only buy Nintendo.
And why wouldnt they?
All the good multiplats come to Xbox and Playstation you would have to be seriously poor or a masochist to buy them on Wii U. Inferior graphics, no dlc. No thanks.

Charming isn't the same thing as profitable.

I think like a game designer, not the business side of things. If I cared about making a profit, I'd hop on bandwagons and make a P2W moba like all the other bad companies (see: Valve).

No, of course not. Nintendo discourages development.

Were they better at it, the WiiU would be a great platform to develop for--specifically, indy downloadable titles.
