Third party is dead in 2014 for Wii U

Absolutely dead... I really hope Nintendo starts dropping good first-party games every month, starting with DKTF, cause if not, the wii u is going to spend another year selling poorly.

Third Party games sell horribly on the wii u so this is no surprise. Every single one of them has plummeted off of the charts around the world, with the exception of Just Dance 3, which was the 75th best selling game 2 weeks ago.

They can release nsmb every month and nintendo fanboys will still call each one of those unique and innovative. Can you just imagine how hype they'll be every month.lol

So are you talking to nintendo, or third party? Yeah third party is dead, thats why ps xb going indie. Sony and ms copy everything nintendo does,.the only difference is nintendo succeeds everytime, making sony and ms wait around for nintendo to come up with another good idea to rip off again and fail at.

Do we even know what's coming next year? I mean, you can't even look to the PS4 to see what games are coming, 90% of the list slated for 2014 are indie games already out on the PC.

I couldn't even tell you anything coming on PC apart from Witcher 3.

How many third party games on Nintendo systems sold like crazy or were worth a damn anyway?
Sure there might be a few stand out titles but third party games always sell better on the other platforms. People who buy Nintendo systems are likely more interested in first party games.
Why the hell do you think people buy playstations? Duh for the third party exclusives!

The third-party problem with Nintendo is really a vicious cycle.

- Third-party developer makes third-party game for Nintendo console.
- Third-party game sells poorly because it has to compete with Nintendo's first-parties and is the weakest of the multiplat versions.
- Third-party developer realizes their games aren't reaching expectations on Nintendo console; they still profit, but not as much as desired. So they scale back development costs by removing various features and DLC for their next game on Nintendo consoles.
- Third-party game is released, and sells even more poorly than the last because gamers don't like playing gimped versions of games that are fully-developed for other consoles.
- Third-party developer scales back even more, starts dropping various titles from their Nintendo release cycle.
- Nintendo realizes they're not getting much help from third-party, and doesn't reach out much to third-parties while making their new console.
- Third-party developers get angry at Nintendo for not considering them in their console development process, and scale back more because they feel the new console's hardware is too tough to develop for.
- Nintendo's new console sells poorly thanks to lack of games.
- Third-parties see the low install base and and drop their plans for Nintendo altogether because working them is just not profitable at this point.

The only way to fix this is for Nintendo's first-party games to be extreme system sellers. Once the Wii U has a great install base, third-parties may come back; they won't let the Wii U's hardware get in the way of making money. Other than that Nintendo will probably just have to subsidize the creation of third-party games like with Bayonetta 2.

Falling short of those two scenarios, yeah, the Wii U's third-party scene will be a barren wasteland.

3rd party games are at best garbage these days.3rd party games were important and good pre ps3 but they started to get crap this gen. we can be happy we have nintendo software every few months.other systems obviously don't even have these......

see ea ( one of the most pathetic companys in videogame history ) new need for speed is skipping wiiu.....i say : thanks to god.what do we honestly want with this crap ? we get mario kart 8 , yeah probably not sooo ''cool'' but in gameplay and fun a 1000000x better.this is just one example of many.

most people don't need this much games anyway because they have school , work or whatever.so a system with few but very good games is a convenience.
