The third party situation is a wierd situation

#1MushroomMuncherPosted 2/18/2014 10:25:20 PM(edited)
*Third Party announces multiplat game for Wii U*
*Fans get excited about game*
*Third Party announces Wii U version has cut content to compensate for low install base (Or some other s*** like a delay)*
*Out of spite, fans/consumers refuse to buy the game*
*Game sells horribly*
*Third party no longer supports Wii U*
*Rinse and repeat*

This has happened with most of the multiplats for Wii U. There are rarer cases like with TTT2 where the consumers were being lazy, but nonetheless, someone needs to make a cycle out of this.

People try to insinuate the chicken/egg scenario, but we have clear indications of 3rd-parties making the move first towards 3rd-party decline on the Wii U, almost like it was planned.

The problems started on the Wii and merely carried over to the Wii U

It's a good finical move for third parties to ignore thw Wii U. It's not thier fault, our the use base. It's Nintendo's.

Except there have been quality games like ZombiU, Splinter Cell: Blacklist, and Need for Speed Most Wanted, which have been mostly ignored on the platform. Small install base could be blamed, but in some cases, the Wii U versions had real effort behind them. The Wii U doesn't always get a crappier version of a game.

Well to be more technical. It started during the SNES, got worse when N64 went cart instead of disc based. Got even worse when the GCN went mini DVD over DVD. And spiraled out of control with Wii and now WiiU.
