3rd party studios are skipping over Wii-U just like they did with the original Wii

ShabbaRanks1921d ago

anyway WiiU owners wont be missing out on this garbage... this isn't a SaintsRow game anymore, but more like SaintsAlienRowInvasion

Hydrolex1921d ago

what is a Wii U ???? I heard it's a potato

aawells071921d ago

@ShabbaRanks Oh man, that was really terrible.

ChickeyCantor1921d ago

As a WiiU owner, I love my pc.

LOL_WUT1921d ago

Is Nintendo even aware of these games? Its like they don't even bother to look or try and get 3rd party support. ;)

NYC_Gamer1921d ago (Edited 1921d ago )

Nintendo isn't trying hard enough to get real 3rd party support...It's not like many Nintendo fans care about third party software though..Many of them will come inside the thread with that"we don't care" mindset anyway.

@ NYC_Gamer

That has been one of Nintendo's biggest set backs... their most avid fans put the "I don't care" statement everywhere. I bought a Wii U day one, and have hoped to see Nintendo take online seriously, and add trophies/achievements, and gain some serious third party support. But if you even offer an honest criticism, which could help to advance Nintendo if enough people got behind it, there is this mass of people who say "how dare you". It's like a fundamentalist religious sect. I have owned every Nintendo console since the NES, and really enjoy Nintendo exclusives, yet I am crucified by people who didn't begin gaming until the 64 or later generations. Nintendo's biggest problem IMO is the lack of "fans" pushing them further in the industry. Now watch the disagrees from those very people pile up.

Jesus I wish I waited like another year to buy the Wii U, the support for this system is abysmal at best, so many games would benefit from the Gamepad but its just not happening. I hate how Nintendo said there system would be so easy to develop for when in fact they basically just tailored it to there own needs and now its being avoided by basically 98% of relevant developers. I have always liked Nintendo products but it absolutely sucks ass buying a new gaming console and having it just sit and collect dust for months on end it's pathetic and Im starting to feel like Nintendo has ripped me off. I'm not trolling I'm being honest Nintendo is failing and they better have at least 5 great exclusives coming this fall/winter or there Wii U system will become completely irrelevant as a gaming console.

Wii U is a console for kids and Ninty fans, its not a console you play mature games like GTA, saints row, red dead ect. Without third party games, Wii U is dead. Mario's and
Zelda's are Not enough to save the system just as it wasn't enough to save gamecube. Its time for Ninty to get out of home console hardware and become a third party publisher.

JP13691921d ago

Mature is not a word I would use to describe the Saints Row series.

solid_warlord1921d ago

@JP1369 its as mature as watching softcore porn...still for MATURE audience as apposed to watching teletubbies.

deafdani1921d ago

"Mario's and Zelda's are Not enough to save the system just as it wasn't enough to save gamecube."

I'll let you know: Nintendo sold the Gamecube at a profit almost since launch, and they sold about 21 million of them.

Microsoft sold the Xbox at a loss for the entirety of that generation, and they sold about 24 million units.

Do you think Microsoft "won" just because they sold more consoles?

AngelicIceDiamond1921d ago (Edited 1921d ago )

Its not the Nintendo fans "we don't care" mindset. It's a combination of Nintendo's late adaptation and Nintendo's poor, poor third party partnerships.

If a Nintendo fans goes to GameSpot and says "Dead Space 3 please."

Retailer: "Sure, for what system?"

"The Wii U."

"Oh I'm sorry, Deadspace 3 is not available for Wii U PS3 and 360 only."

Think about it, that's devastation. A Nintendo fans is looking forward to Dead Space 3 on Wii U but can't buy it because his company has terrible third party partnerships.

Can I buy Madden? Not available.
Can I buy Saints Row IV? Not available.
Can I buy Battlefield 4? Not available.
Can I buy Grand Theft Auto 5? Not available.

And it goes on, what does a Nintendo fan do from there? Do research to see if the game is available on there console? We'll find out in 3 short months at E3 for Nintendo's answer in all of these serious issues.

I want some serious answer's from Nintendo this year. I want them to address everything regarding the constant ongoing problems with the system. This is an outrage.

EDIT: Ok so apparently we do have a some careless Nintendo fans in here. Then why am I in here defending this when you the ones who have the console don't care that a well know franchise won't be hitting your console?

Listen it isn't just ONE game its MANY games that aren't hitting the system you "fans" are not making things better with your careless attitude. There's a reason MS was super aggressive about third party this gen. And next gen seems to be just as brutal now that Sony is showing great third party strength so what it sound like to me MS and Sony will play tug of war with devs while Nintendo will be just after thought.

Be Prepared for Nintendo's potential down fall in the future and end up like Sega, downsized and just a publisher.

xursz1921d ago

I absolutely agree with you except for Nintendo ending up lke Sega. They deserve credit in the handheld market but their consoles on the other hand have gotten progressively worse. Funny thing is when the psvita started off slow I remember Nintendo fans saying its dead and that no one is supprting it, now the Wiiu is in the same boat and people suddenly don't need 3rd parties. *facepalm*

jmc88881921d ago

You can't buy Madden on Wii U? Are you nuts?

Also the maps all state a BF game is coming to Wii U.

Might want to trolololol a little smarter first.

jmc88881921d ago

Says the sophist.

So exactly what makes you think this?

Because you want to? Oh yeah THATS IT.

Or do you think a game that was mostly done and acquired in bankruptcy court should be looking to add new costs?

...and that based on you is indicative of the status of the Wii U.

Man you have the logic that even Spocks discarded jerked off cum wouldn't agree with.

richierich1921d ago

Yeah current gen titles which probably spells bad news

nevin11921d ago

you have to go back to the Snes days to see 3rd party support.

LastXeno1921d ago

Not like I care, but... Why exactly?

MasterCornholio1921d ago (Edited 1921d ago )

"Not like I care"

Thats the attitude that scares 3rd partys away from the Wii U.

If you want 3rd party games you better start caring otherwise developers wont care about the Wii U.

Which is what happened to 3rd party support on the N64, Gamecube, Wii and will probably be the same with then Wii U.

Edit: Anyways i know that many people complained about saints row the third but they did produce a great saints row game called Saints row 2. Which was incredibly fun in my opinion which is why i will be watching this title closely.

Fasttrack761921d ago

Looks like I might trade in my wii u when next gen consoles are here.

Eazy-Eman1921d ago

My question is, why buy it in the first place if you knew it wasn't going to have much software in the first year on the market? Stop being an early adopter and just wait a few years when the console has already dropped in price. That's what I'm doing for next generation.
