Nintendo is just upset that no 3rd party developers are taking them Seriously with there Wii U!!!

Theyellowflash303207d ago

Since when has Nintendo Needed third parties? Nintendo needs to get there first party games out to sell units.

AnotherProGamer3207d ago

They always needed third party like the reason PS2 sold more than the gamecube was because of the huge PS2 library

Theyellowflash303207d ago

Sorry, I meant to say Nintendo needs first party software now. Just like the 3DS did when everybody said that system was doomed. Nintendo is getting some good third party games in March with Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, Need for Speed Most Wanted, and The Amazing Spider Man.

Roper3163207d ago

they need to get their 1st party to make more the just Mario, Zelda & Mario spinoffs. They need their 1st party to make some games aimed at just a adult gamer along with the all ages games. jmho

You mean "Port Hunter 3", "Port Speed Most Wanted" and "The Amazing Spider Port". C'mon dude, MHTri is a good game but there are so many ports of it, that I doubt it will sell a lot on WiiU. NFS and ASM are didn't even sold well on PS3 and Xbox, what makes you think they will sell on WiiU?

Nintendo was at their best/strongest with all out 3rd party support. The Super Nintendo days were their best, by far... In my opinion, of course.

All consoles need third party games, we buy consoles to play games on them and the more you have the better.

Francis might be mad due to comment posted, but the truth is they are right, wiiu its doing awfully, even Nintendo drop the forecast, shares went down, they reconfigure wiiu business with handheld and 100s has been let go from their positions.

Do anyone need more sign that nintendos wiiu its in trouble? Even Nintendo president admited and said we are not doing as we expected and the reason we low down production.

BEST NNTENDO CAN DO ITS KILL THE CONSOLE ALREADY AND EITHER come up with a console to challenge next gen or kill the wiiu and keep the handheld business. Just stay handheld and stocks goes back up because its your healthiest market, and go third party to the other 2 console.

I dont see any other way to place it, a little too late. Just make a new console with wii and wiiu compatability to satisfy does that bought games for it and just simply make the new console a beast.

Call the new console WII 2 Super WII Beast.

I know this will be an unpopular view, but I personally always wished (well....since I've moved on from being a Nintendo gamer, SNES was the last Ninty console I owned and loved) that Nintendo would actually go 3rd party themselves like Sega. Sega got forced into it pretty much, and imo they don't heve enough great IPs to be a HUGE 3rd party dev. But Nintendo could actually CHOOSE to be 3rd party, and their IPs are good enough where I think they could actually make MORE money putting those IPs on other (better) hardware.

I have no interest in going back to Nintendo, at least not in the foreseeable future. Their new iterations of their classic IPs don't do it for me. But they could get their fill of my money by releasing Nintendo Classics on PlayStation. I know it will never happen, but if I got my wish I'd be able to play the original Marios, Punch-Out!!, A Link to the Past and so on, on a console I actually own....Vita would be IDEAL. Judging by how much I enjoy MegaMan 1-3 on Vita, all those game would be better than ever.

Like I said, I know it will never happen (unless Wii U hurts Nintendo even more than I think it will), but realistically, it's the only way Nintendo would ever make money off this old-school gamer again.

They needed them during the N64 and GC days. The lack of them was the reason they took a different approach with the Wii in the first place.

Mounce3207d ago

Well I'm still hoping that there's a day that the Nintendo fanbase realizes that all Nintendo has been doing with their software lineup, is milking Mario games 5x harder while pumping out the same IP over and over and over and I re-ask this over and over, what was the last IP Nintendo themselves made, my last recollection is Pikmen(Originally on Gamecube...). What new franchises had Sony made or Microsoft made this generation? or the last? fucking TONS.

Nintendo takes 'Risks' only by handing out their IP's to other studios to try to spice up their IP's in ways that they themselves cannot do without fearing that the milking of nostalgias' tits will infact go dry....hence why Metroid Prime happened and thankfully did well. The second attempt didn't seem to be met well though with Metroid: Other M. Mario games are no longer being passed around and Zelda, ever since Mario Hotel and many other disasters, or SAYYY....Link: The Faces of Evil, Zelda: The Wand of Gamelon on CD-i -_-...

"Lets get the facts straight?" rofl.

It would cost Nintendo money to Drop the Wii U and stop producing consoles more than it would save, given what they have invested in research and the actual manufacturing.

Moonman3207d ago

Nintendo has Watch Dogs coming and hopefully GTA V. They sell more first party than anyone! 3DS is already over 30 million sold even before Pokemon X and They have over 10 billion in the bank!

silly fanboys.....

2pacalypsenow3207d ago (Edited 3207d ago )

IF GTA V is current gen it won be on the wii U why waste time and $ in development when everyone will be playing it on Xbox 360/Ps3 and maybe Pc/Ps4 /Next Xbox

DarkBlood3207d ago

in that case why waste time making it for ps4 and next xbox when its just about the same amount of effort to put it on the wiiu?

that is why you fail :P

HammadTheBeast3207d ago

They won't put the effort in yet for a PC version cause they're so busy with PS3/Xbox 360, what makes you think that they've even thought of other consoles?

HarryMasonHerpderp3207d ago (Edited 3207d ago )

This guy just seems like he's mad about the comments by Cliff when he shouldn't be because Cliff has been talking crap for a while now. Just ignore him.
I'm pretty sure Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo will be making hardware for many years to come.

PeaSFor3207d ago

to resume, the guy who did this blog is simply butthurted.

dee-ecks3207d ago
