I Want To Play My Wii U, But The Developers Are Telling Me Not To

Remember the saying "if you build it, they will come"? You can't build a success without climbing the ladder first and video game developers are taking out the pegs on the Wii U. (Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, Batman: Arkham Origins, Injustice: Gods Among Us, Mass Effect 3, Resident Evil Revelations, Wii U)

Good article. Wake up games industry! This shouldn't ever happen!

not a bad read.
It does seem odd though that the current trend for 3rd parties was trying to reach parity between platforms. And here we are with wii-u versions of games lacking some of the same content as on other platforms.

However, we dont know all the details. There have been instances where the core of a game is the same across the board but each platform has some sort of extra bit of exclusivity in the form of specialized content.

I dont know if that applies here but it isnt the first time nor will it be the last. I do feel, the bigger the 3rd party title, the more equal it should be so consumers who have only one platform will not feel left out for buying the copy that pertains to them.

Smaller 3rd party titles, yeah i can see them doing extras on each version that isnt found in another. But, at the very least, make the core of the games the same.

Yeah completely agree with this article. If you aren't gonna put the features on then don't make the game.

-_- oh so true. Tho late to the party Nintendo put out a worthy system. Developers somewhat half-ass some games and wonder why it's not selling. Nintendo is in this all on their own again.
