Should nintendo reach out to western developers and get them onboard?

I was thinking about this, and really, correct me if I forgot some, the only developer I would REALLY like to make games for wii U is CD projekt RED. They are from Poland which is to the far East from where I am. Anyway.

No thanks. Keep the ugly brown shooters on Xbox.

No, companies should port over games but not because Nintendo is bending over backwards just have their games. Nintendo has already done all that they can at the moment, now it's up to the developers and the publishers.

Also, CD Projekt RED's next game, Cyberpunk 2077, is still early in development.

They do. Western Devs just figure that dissing Nintendo gives them more "street cred" with hardcore gamers.


They are, of course, allying themselves with the side that's going to lose, but they seem to be pretty willing to go down with the ship.

Honestly, Nintendo has done a lot to reach out to third parties in the West already, and they've been met mostly with apathy. I'm not sure what else they could do to attract support beyond expanding the Wii U's install base, which will happen in time anyway.

I guess they could take a cue from Microsoft and start moneyhatting some games, but considering that Microsoft still hasn't turned a profit relying on that strategy, I think Nintendo is better off just staying the course.

That could receive a Wii U announcement later on. After all, the game isn't scheduled to be released until next year, so things can happen.
