Whether this system sells well means nothing.

The less it sells the worse support it gets.
Just look at the WiiU.


That is not the reason the WiiU doesn't get support.


This is why I don't even want to respond to the "poor release number = no support" argument.

I'm very curious to hear what your definition of "nothing" is....


This is a legit question.

The way I am using it I mean that the sales number don't determine if the system is good or bad.

EA was supporting it in the beginning. After the terrible sales EA dropped the support.


It was definitely more than that.

The reason the Wii U doesn`t get support is because Nintendo fans don`t buy third-party games.
The first Xbox had poor sales yet it had amazing support because Xbox fans buy a lot of games.

That's because the EA poorly ported titles. But the real reason EA dropped support is because Nintendo won't allow Origin on their network.

QFT.

Sales simply don't equal support no matter how hard people want to pretend they do.

EA stopped Wii U support for numerous reasons, one of them being that the Wii U hardware is severely underspec for a "next-gen" console.

People buying games=sales, you're contradicting the quote. Overall software sales are what matter but having a larger installed user base makes it easier to reach software sales.

Which is why they have no issue pushing smartphones. People need to stop deluding themselves, publishers will follow what ever system can make them money.

Games make the system. If the system doesn't sell well then the support for new games in the future diminishes. Lack of sales could also lead to lack of long term support from Microsoft. Look how well the Zune faired.
