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.

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.

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.
