Nintendo better be out there trying to get support from all third party studios

Godchild10201956d ago (Edited 1956d ago )

Maybe Take Two will Okay Bioshock Vita, if they will also launch it on the WiiU?

MizTv1955d ago

Didn't they say two years ago they were making a bioshock for vita?

DOMination-1955d ago

Yes they did but they haven't started it and i can see them not bothering unless vita picks up

Godchild10201955d ago (Edited 1955d ago )

@MizTv, Here is a link where Ken said, "It's up to Take Two and Sony." While Sony might be on board for an exclusive Bioshock Vita, Take Two might want it to be Multi-platform. Only time will tell.

Third parties don't sell all that well on Nintendo consoles. Said it before and ill say it again. Nintendo will lack third party support just like the wii did because of the different ways the wii u plays games. Unless the third party game is exclusive I just don't see many porting games to play well through the tablet controller.

3rd party games sold great on NES,SNES then did well on GC but the GC it self had a lower install base. Then NIN really lost it on the Wii for hardcore games but 3rd party family games sell great. Nintendogs, cooking mama, dance dance.

Now is Nintendo chance to get back on board with the 3rd party's but they can't be arrogant and wait for it. They need to pound the sidewalks, yell and scream and even offer incentives if need be. I hope NIN knows this is real and the wrong moves could really hurt them this time.

do you honestly think Nintendo cares?

Trekster_Gamer1955d ago

They should care. If they think they can repeat what the Wii did they are sadly mistaken. I hope we don't see the same crap only in HD throw in yet the same mario game, zelda and metroid. If they think this will sell Wii U they are in for a very awakening.

Oh_Yeah1955d ago (Edited 1955d ago )

You have to look at it from the other side also. There's a lack of interest from some of the devs I'm sure.. They're the ones that want to sell games right? Obviously they would be the ones approaching Nintendo if they thought it'd be worth it. At this point, some devs are probably just waiting for the the arrival of next gen. And once again wii u will probably end up like the wii..weak in comparison to the other consoles..So even if the devs want to do 3rd party games they'll have to basically make another version.

Neonridr1955d ago

But we are talking about a game that is releasing on the Xbox and PS3, not next gen. The Wii U can easily handle a port of those games.

Ninty does not care about 3rd party.

Riderz13371955d ago

Nintendo doesn't, but gamers do.

GraveLord1956d ago

I can't believe THQ made Darksiders 2 for Wii U in their financial situation...waste of money. The game didn't even sell at all.

Neonridr1955d ago

the game has been out for 3 weeks in NA and less than that around the world. While sales have been low, it's not like there isn't more potential for sales as hardware units become available and the install base grows.

theindiearmy1955d ago

Forget about the game, the console hasn't even been out that long. If you're selling 20,000 copies on a system that only has 400,000 out (more with EU and JPN launches), you're doing really well.

20,000 of 400,000 is 1/20 of the systems sold. 1/20 of a system that has 70m in sales is 3.5m copies, which is a great success for a game. Just for perspective, Darksiders II has about 1.3m in sales total, let alone on a single console.

Also factor in that this isn't even including the digital sales that Darksiders II has done and I'd say it's been somewhat successful.

traditionaly Nintendo focuses on first party support. at least it did during the 64 and gamecube era. The wii era only had third party for shovelware. Very few AAA third party games were ever published on the WII.

So this does not surprise me at all.

Trekster_Gamer1955d ago

It is NOT the same as it was with the N64 and GameCube era. It is a much much bigger industry and much more diverse and your games need to match this.
