A Nintendo Theory. What Can Save The Wii U and a Huge Win Over Their Competitors

Well since the launch of the Wii U last month on Nov 18th. Thing's haven't really gone Nintendo's way has it? Some will disagree and most will agree. Yet could there really be an answer to what Nintendo has planned down the road that most of us just don't see coming? Perhaps there might just be more light at the end of this dark tunnel of disappointment after all, Maybe, just maybe. Now before i begin i just wanna make one thing clear. This is not facts, rumors. This is just a straight up Theory i have that could turn the tides for Nintendo and make there new Console a huge hit.

Over the last few years Nintendo has been getting a bit of 3rd party support that even to this day gets question as to why these developers are making there games for Nintendo and not on the other platforms. Games like Monster Hunter 4 that is coming to the 3DS, The last Story, and now with Bayonetta 2. Yet lets focus our attention on Bayonetta 2 just for a min as i believe this is just the start to what Nintendo could very well be doing and that most gamer's just don't see coming. Now many gamer's question as to why Nintendo would even supply the money to get Bayonetta 2 made and be exclusive to there very own console. Nintendo has no reason to support this game at all since the first game after all was never ever considered for there console in the first place. Now could this be just to try and get Platinum games under there belt or is there more to this aspect as to why.

I strongly believe that this is to get a great relationship with Platinum games but its also Nintendo providing proof they do indeed care about the core after all. This is where my theory starts to kick in. We already know that Microsoft and Sony will have a more powerful system on the market come time by the end of 2013/2014 if we are going based off Rumors here. Now what can Nintendo do that will result more people to go out and be proud they own a Wii U next to the gamer's choice of next gen console. Yet before we dive into that, lets go back to this gen we are still in. Show of comments, how many of you only ever use the Wii for first party games and never touch it or barely use it for 3rd party games? I'm sure most of you out there do. Yet what if this problem were to not be an issue for the Wii U. Now you may be asking yourself, how can Nintendo do this if the same problems that dazed the Wii with lack of 3rd party support were to kick in again. Ahh but there is one glaring problem that can easily overshadow this dazed effect for Nintendo. In my opinion if Nintendo doesn't want the same issues happening with the Wii U like it did for the Wii, Nintendo should indeed go out of there way and support 3rd party devs and get those 3rd party Exclusive titles. Give those gamer's out there a reason to buy a Wii U or make those who do be proud and glad they did get a Wii U and give them that upper edge and not make the Wii U not become a closet console 2 years in for most Gamer's.

Now most of you are thinking, Nintendo won't do this. If they really want to make a name for themselves and convince gamer's out there to run out and buy there console and prove that specs isn't the end of be all for consoles. Then this would be the better approach for them in the long run. Imagine if Final Fantasy V.S 13 were to come out under a different name and Nintendo supports Square and get's this game released for the Wii U only or games that tons of people are just waiting for like Timesplitters 4, Kingdom hearts 3, and many other games that were to come out yet we have not seen any news or official cancellation regarding those games. Yet remember canned games can also come back from the dead. Bayonetta 2 already supports this.

So were could this lead Nintendo in the future if this were to happen for them? Will it convince you as a gamer to run out and be more then happy to own a Wii U or will you just not care for it but at the same time give credit to them for doing this? Share your thoughts.

I didn't pick up the Wii U but that don't mean i won't. trophies are now a big part of my gameing but there not the end all of gameing. Somethings are a standard today and achievements or trophies are part of that standard. I don't understand why nintendo failed to had them but they still may one day. I don't think the Wii u is under powered and i think people are going be disappointed when the ps4 and next xbox hit. High power comes at a cost one which i can't see them doing in this economic. As for nintendo i think there going be fine and i see them investing in places we wouldn't expect.

tbh i dont think achievements/trophies are a standard they never will be i use to be a huge achievement whore playing everything and anything to get them but lately ive switched to pc gaming and couldnt care less about achievements.

they was a cheap way to make people buy games that they normally wouldn't and they have caused too many games to have sloppy mechanics just so they could put in a few extra achievements i would be happy if they went completely, we might get better games then.

I think your abit too early with this article to say it needs saving give it more time it just released.

At 1.8 million units and counting, I didn't know if the Wii U needed saving. Give the Wii U at least 6 months to a year and then we will see if it needs saving or not. I heard theses doom prophecies concerning the Ds, 3ds, Wii, and PS3 and they seem to be doing alright.

I do not condone the idea of them going out of their way and paying 3rd party devs to release what should have been multiplat exclusive to their system. That kind of strategy is disgusting and is only used if you have a weak 1st party offering not to mention the losers will be the gamers who own a different console.
Instead what they should be doing is making compelling new IPs that can appeal the more mature gamer which could intern expand the Nintendo fan base from just being die-hard Nintendo fans and casual newcomers.

im guessing your talking about bayoneta 2 which you clearly have you facts wrong. they didnt pay to just have the game as an exclusive, they paid the developers to actually make the game in the first place which is a big difference as there wouldnt have been a bayoneta 2 if they didnt.

DivineHand1251937d ago

I'm not talking about bayoneta 2 since its common knowledge that it wasn't even in development to begin with. what I'm talking about is that I don't want to repeat of what Microsoft has been doing since beginning of this generation by making third party publishers release games and DLC on timed exclusive for their console just to get the edge over the competition instead of investing into 1st party content.
