When M$ announced that they had generated 1.2 billion dollars from XBL before E3 2010...the world stood still in shareholders land and Sony-Niny were forced to act.

A publicly traded company by law, must make a profit.

They need Timesplitters 4 and GTA 5 exclusive!! there , nintendo. I solved your problem. Now spend the money you made on the Wii and do it.

They may well release on the WiiU but exclusive? I don't think Nintendo could pay the money that the publishers would ultimately lose by not releasing on PS3, 360 and PC.

You're right, that was crazy of me to say. maybe strong exclusive content on both titles. There's already gonna be some cool features im sure with the controller though..

LOL the answer to this is obvious as hell. Near PC quality graphics and features for Battlefield 3 and Modern Warfare 3. Throw in a superior console version of Mass Effect 3 and Skyrim to have MS and Sony sweating bullets.

Oh, one more thing. Free multiplayer.

If the console is hard to develop for or if it can't do 1080p native in all games with horse power to spare then they're screwed. Core gamers will just wait it out for MS and Sony's nextgen offerings.

"Therefore, we are thinking of creating an environment where software from other companies will become hits"

What kind of environment is that? One where you make good games?

No one is buying a Wii U for 3rd party games...seriously whos waiting until after April to play BF3, AC:R, Arkham City,MW3 and others? Only Nintendos faithful. And when nextbox and ps4 leaks all over the net its over.
