But it would have sold more than did it by being released later...

Nintendo. The generation-behind hardware trick wasn't going to work a second time, because the Wii had an extremely unique interface that played on people's curiosity, so unique in fact that it even brought in a lot of people that didn't normally give a care in the world about video games.
Meshing a low-grade tablet (single touch is honestly going to confuse some people with how many multitouch devices exist and are in everyday use by people) and a basic game controller together is not nearly as appealing and putting it behind decade-old primary-console tech is not nearly as exciting. Most of the software was available for a long time on other platforms and the gamepad does very little to reinvigorate those titles.
Still, I like my WiiU, and think there's potential there beyond just Nintendo first-party games (the only real reason I got mine, plus Monster Hunter 3U and Bayonetta 2 exclusivity), but I don't exactly think it's the consumer's fault that they're not too excited.

Sales dont dictate if the game was good when it was already released prior on mutliple systems. Like i said the wii u had the best console version

Yes came out 2 weeks late on a system with no install base. Thats why it only sold 20k copies.
Nintendo & The Fans equally.
Ninja gaiden 3 razor edge wiiu sold really really poorly.. and they have to re-release it on xbox and ps3..
Nintendrone sure hates 3rd party dev
Persona 4 Golden is the best JRPG in the history of mankind!
Ninja gaiden 3
Had already been released months earlier too...

Not to mention it was a ****ty game, that definitely didn't help its chances.
XBL GT: roboitoam

Saying the Wii U didn't have an install base is far more reasonable than blaming Activision.
Edit: According to the info here, Blops 2 came out November 13, 2012.
And for Wii U at launch, which was November 18, 2012.
So like I said, it was less than a week.
If Platinum was HAND drawn, she'd be on paper, fool. This is a video game. They just made her on screen, no "drawing" involved -Delano7 on BlazBlue

Yup plus it looked DRAMATICALLY BETTER on Wii U, according to Reggie.
they have the PC version of Darksiders 2 running on WiiU in 1080 native at 60 fps and full graphics options on. Neither 360 or PS3 can come close
