Miyamoto: Nintendo will help developers get the most out of Wii U

Shigeru Miyamoto has said that Nintendo will help third-party developers get the most out of Wii U if they are willing to produce experiences that are only available on Wii U. (Nintendo, Shigeru Miyamoto, Wii U)

Well if there is anyone that knows how to get the most out Nintendo systems it's Nintendo themselves. Well I hope it results in games that not only look better but also play better, if so, I'm all for it. I just hope helping other developers doesn't take away from the efforts going into Nintendo's own first party offerings.

"That are only available on wii u" is the key phrase, but it would be a good chance to get some independent games or games other publishers haven't picked up or would fund, cough bayonetta 2. But since alot of developers have said it's easy to develop for it's just a matter of useing the wii u's gpgpu

Very good news as this means them powerful game engines they got Retro studios to build and also put Retro in charge of graphics for all wiiu games that need high end graphics all i can say is Epic were impressed by the engines and make UE4 support available straight away i rate they have engines that make use of next gen dx11 features of tge gpgpu and amazing physics like that zelda tech demo with the modern cpu and edram E3 2013 will show games using the said engines.

Well first nintendo needs to release a game that doesn't look like a wii port, then they can talk.

Short of indie games or a few other titles no other publisher is willing to publish, 3rd parties aren't going to ignore the hd twins to make a wii u exclusive.

3rd party exclusives are essentially dead at this point, because dev costs will be too high and unlike last gen wii u games won't be significantly cheaper to make than ps3/360 games.

probably not but what about 720 and ps4 them games could be lots more expensive but they rumored to have gpgpu set up so the Wii could be used practice for future games. also if it is that easy to develope games on Wii u as some devs say (gearbox, Ubisoft, 5th cell) it could be the console used to make games like how the ps2 was the most underpowered 6th gen but easiest to program for so Nintendo and Microsoft had ps2 ports on there more powerful hardware at the time. buts its the future anything could happen I just want fun games.
