Poor sales often the reason why the Wii U doesnt get 3rd party games even if other games from the dev made a profit on the platform. Its clear that the majority of 3rd parties are giving there backing to Xbox One over PS4 and Wii U in the form of exclusives dlc and unique content. Now can assume some like EA have a better working relationship with Microsoft over Sony and Nintendo but for some is the money Microsoft is willing to pay a bigger draw than sales potential on the other systems?

Sales lead to money so I'll say money since MS proves developers don't need sales to make money.

Why worry about sales when ms can give you mountains of money to be exclusive

PlayStation is where the sales are but Xbox is where the moneys at

Because third-parties get the bigger picture and they know MS's vision and digital model is preferable to what Sony offers and this is why you see major publishers supporting Xbox despite the sales gap.
