"The industry" will only really take it seriously if it has true 3rd party support. THAT will only happen if it's very own fans start buying said games.

See, it's such a bad situation because the very people who complain about it are generally the very people who are not supporting it in the way that it needs it the most.

Nintendo would need 70,000 gallons of blood, 13 different sets of breasts, millions of ammunitions, and mandatory 10 minute cut scenes.

That's the standard.

Taking it seriously? Well that ship sailed before the Wii U launched, but required Nintendo adopting X86 like everyone else, along with hardware specs that were similar to the other consoles so Wii U-specific games didn't have to be reimagined and re-coded to operate as efficiently under a different architecture.

A much higher rate of monthly sales and overall sales numbers on the console would at least get the industry moving attention to game development on the Wii U, setting aside whether or not they were happy about doing so.

I still do think, though, there's an opportunity for Nintendo to make inroads with the mostly Japanese third party development teams releasing titles currently on the 3DS - but mostly it simply comes down to third partly developers feeling that they can be assured of a profit returned on the development of a Wii U title.

Basically Nintendo would need to think ass backwards in regards to their console design and structure in order for Prima donna developers to get off their asses and make some games. And even then they would be given the scraps still.

Fixed it up a little for you. Oh, and don't forget all those press A to win thingies.

It would take it not being a Nintendo home console, because most companies hate Nintendo home consoles.

There are various avenues Nintendo could take in order to help ship the Wii U.

The biggest idea is to drop the GamePad, include a Pro Controller and drop the console to $250. With the price drop + releases such as Mario Kart 8 and Smash Bros. U this is potentially there safest route. Most Wii U owners would argue that it takes the innovation away from the console.

Nintendo could also stay as they are releasing games gradually and relying on the sales of the 3DS until a future Home Console is launched.

Another option is to disconnect the mandatory connection of the GamePad to the console. Microsoft did this with the Kinect and turned out to be successful.
