Nintendo gains support from EA in regards to their new system, the Wii U. How will this work for Nintendo?
Nintendo always had 3rd party support. It starts out good for the first 3 years and then once they see that Nothing sells even remotely close to Zelda/Mario/Pokemon then that support just fizzles out. Happened with the Gamecube and the N64, the Wii being the biggest example.
Agreed. 3rd party support is there. A reason could be the fact that their console such as the Wii is targeted towards a certain demographic of gamers. This would explain why titles such as Dead Space Extraction didn't do well in the sales department, despite being a good game: it was being just targeted to the wrong people. Let's just hope that they can address the issue of 3rd party support with the Wii U.
as long as they are not shovelware like many 3rd party games on wii
I hope this stirs more interest from all publishers and Dev teams. Successful platforms spawns competitive industry. Competitive industry spawns growth and innovation. Growth and innovation leads to Kick *ss games.
well thats good news, all they need to do now is make they thing have multible controllers and I'm sold(Im probably sold regardless though lol)
i think wii U is kinda a failure... it was announced, we all seen it, and since then U never hear anything about it... deff. goes to show if there releasing this next month the ps3 and 360 will be around for a few more years at least... as for the wii U, its not gonna get to much attention I think. Im sure at first it will, but not everyone will buy it like they did with the Wii.
They're releasing WiiU next month? Wow, i never knew that.
Wii, Wii U, Wii DERP.
If by 3rd party it means new exclusive games that are built around using the Wii U's power then that's fantastic! If they mean ports of the same games on PS3/360 then that's not so great.
I am still not sold on the WiiU. I need to see more but at the moment it seems quite silly to me. XperiaRay
Sounds promising, though I feel like I've seen this before with previous consoles.
