Nintendo's hard path to third-party support in 2013

Gamasutra- We'd like to see the Nintendo Wii U attract great third-party software support -- but Nintendo's shrinking share among third-party publishers' revenues is difficult to ignore. (Wii U)

There is not wanting to work with it and Devs being to damn lazy to incorporate gameplay into the the gamepad.

It's not just lazy, it's dumb.

---They keep acting like they have to do something EPIC or special with it, when all they have to do is clear-up the HUD or make menus more accessible.

Play-station 3 did not require Six-Axis for every game but it was there if they wanted to use it.

Nintendo needs to start shelling out some $$$ for third party games or buy more studios if they really want to pursue serious gamers.

I really can't believe Nintendo is not ready to make HD games and need 2nd party devs to make their games work on the Wii U.

The Gamecube style of making games is 13 years old now & made lots of money but its unbelievable that they just made progress on HD game development last year.

This 3rd party lack of support sure is not helping.
But Iwata promised in-time this problem will get fixed.

The idea behind the WiiU is expanding gameplay with the gamepad. If you have no desire to make a game utilizing it, your response might as well be why bother.

Hopefully some of Nintendo's 1st/2nd party productions show the strength of the WiiU. They need something to show prospective 3rd party developers that says "look at what you can do with the WiiU", something that shows Ultra grade Crysis 3 isn't everything
