Hand Me Downs: The Porting Crisis of Wii U

With so many multi-platform games flooding Wii U’s launch window, Lewis asks whether we’re doomed to another generation of dodgy ports. (Assassin's Creed III, FIFA 13, Tekken Tag Tournament 2, Wii U)

People want the Wii U to garner the same suppot as...
Microsoft and Sony receive, yet they complain about ports?

I really don't understand this flawed logic of thinking.

Agree more. It's silly and additionally, every console starts out with ports. It's a quick way to establish a market on the new console and for devs to familiarize themselves with the hardware.

Well said to both of the above

Exactly, I mean what do they want it to be like the Wii? With a tiny amount of decent games on it? Want to wait for Zelda and Mario again? Ports are nothing but a plus.

Every console and handheld has and will get a lot of ports.
The only exception was the first game console.

I know wii had no support people complained now the wiiU gets it and they still complain, every console after the first will get mostly ports, i would like to see a 3rd or 4th generation console release along with 20 brand new games, this will never happen

Worst part is its a Nintendo site and I bet if we looked into their history's they've prob complained about lack of supporting..vote the site down for extreme ignorance

the wii u has exclusives that are launching.. Only the core titles are ports w very few exceptions.. If these ports dont sell well, they will cease to exist so i suggest everyone goes & buys em..

Everybody needs to get over it. If you want exclusives, there is a few in the LAUNCH WINDOW!!! That's why they call it that.

You can't expect to have a lot of games that aren't ports at the launch of a system. Some developers haven't had a lot of time with the console and porting is a quick way to get a game out whilst introducing themselves to it before making something from the ground up, not to mention they won't want to risk losing money making a full game for the Wii U until it has an established fanbase.

Vitas doing the same and there is nothing wrong with it.
