"Third parties don't release for Nintendo consoles because they can't compete.."

... with Nintendo first party titles.

Do we still believe this, really? There are no barely any first party titles released on the Wii U to compete with! Is we still really using this excuse as to why the Wii U isn't getting any games? Can we put this tired argument to rest now and never mention it again, please?

The games are the problem this time around, it's the install base TC.

Did anyone actually think that? I thought it was more of a mix of underpowered hardware with lack of sales of games.

Ehh I more think it's a matter of 3rd party gimping their games (Wii excluded)

Even on another system, they're still competing. And doing quite well for themselves over there. If games went multiplatform and also included the Wii U, they'd not see any less success. It would just reaffirm something we all know: no one would buy them on the Wii U.

What? Who believes that?

Third party devs don't release much for Nintendo because

1) Nintendo has historically treated them poorly

2) Nintendo systems tend to be very difficult to develop for

3) Nintendo doesn't have robust online support, so people won't buy third party games for Nintendo systems if they don't have a huge online community of people to play with.

4) Nintendo's systems have been underpowered to the point where newer games like Batman can't even run well on them. And consumers don't want watered down versions of their third party game when they can get the complete version on PS or XB.

People have been posting it on this board for ages like its some badge of honor as to why the Wii U isn't getting third party support.
