9 out of 10 Game Creators Who Praised The Wii U Made a Wii U Launch Game

Stephen Totilo:

E3 is a time for a lot of huffery and puffery about video games, much of which turns out to be true—just not all of it.

The bluster is biggest when a new console is being launched. Promises are made or at least implied. Then the system comes out. So. The Wii U. It just came out. Let's rewind to the Nintendo press conference of E3 2011. During that conference, Nintendo showed the Wii U for the first time, explained the system's bizarre controller and even got 10 prominent people who make games to praise the GamePad.

Who were these people and what did they deliver? (Wii U)

WOW, so the developers with development kits that see what the Wii U is all about say good things? Crytek says this and they don't have a launch title.

Or they could be trying to get people to buy the Wii U so that they can also buy their games.
But I just care about Ninty's first party titles so it's mostly irrelevant what the rest of the gaming industry says.

Well why would the developers who are creating ports on all three systems care which copy people buy. They are still getting the Money. So why say good things about one console?

Yeah, it couldn't possibly be that they wanted people to buy the Wii U so their games could make them money.

Nah, that would never happen.

Oh goodie, Kotaku! Thanks for posting the E3 Wii U PR video a year and a half later!

Praise Jesus! The developers fishing for what meager support Nintendo gives third parties and free marketing said nice things about it in a Nintendo video! The Wii U is golden and 'haters' be damned!

If i was making a launch game for a console, i'd say that it was the best thing ever, regardless of what i thought about it.
The more people that buy the console, the higher the chance my game will be bought.
