I wonder if it´ll only get worse once we start seeing 3rd party multiplatform games for PS4/NextXbox.

There is always a silver lining on the horizon: Things can't get much worse from here on out.


Well, yeah :)

Though, releasing GTA V on the Wii U would go a long way in restoring a bit of a hope...or maybe not.

Its sad to hear this from Konami...Its even more sad to here how much people joyfully bash Nintendo once again ...
I don't know about you but its time like this that I wish people just play games and be entertained rather than bash other games...

As for me, I will support Nintendo... They are trying hardly to bring back third party companies and this is remarkable...Not every company would spend money only to get more third party games on their system...
Thanks Nintendo! You have here a proud Nintendo fan!



Nintendo fans need to wake up and realise their console sucks

People are all like "Oh Konami is shafting Nintendo bloo bloo"

That isn't what's happening, here.

This game is not being developed internally by Konami. It is being developed by Mercurysteam. It began development in 2010 or 2011, before the Wii U specs were really out there for small developers like this one. Mercurysteam was given a certain budget and told to make the game within the confines of that budget. They (Mercurysteam) made a list of things they wanted in it. One of those was a PC version. They cut out some things so that it would fit the budget. Putting it on more platforms would require removing features in order to fit the budget.

Video game development is not that cut and dry, and neither is the publisher/developer relationship.

Wait... so you mean that Konami doesn't just hit a magical Wii U button and the game gets instantly ported regardless of when it started development?  Because that's the impression I got from everyone else's posts.



That's a shame

dunno if anyone made a thread here for it but Crytek confirmed that Crysis won't be coming to wiiu as well

They don't want to spend money on creating gameplay on the Wii U gamepad, the Wii U install base is too small right now and also 3rd party ports on Wii U have sold very badly.

A huge, fairly mean-spirited thread dominated discourse yesterday.



Monster Hunter: pissing me off since 2010.

This discussion could drive a man to drink



The answer to your question is for you too look at the user base of the 3DS compared to the user base of the Wii U. Same reason why some games wont come out for the PS vita but for other consoles.

Another problem with Nintendo (not sure if its true) is that they been banking on their franchise games such as zelda, mario, and pokemon  to carry them that they pretty much alienated a lot of the  3rd party developers. Now that the Wii U came out that can play the same games as the PS3 and 360. Nintendo wants these developers. But they have either lost the relationship or never established a relationship with these developers.

What ?

That is exactly was Microsoft and Sony has done last gen and Nintendo not doing it (besides Platinum Games) is pretty much the reason why some of these games are not coming to the system.

MS threw money at everything to come to its system. GTA IV, Tales of Vesperia, Final Fantasy XIII, Assassin's Creed (?), Minecraft etc. and still does with time exclusive DLCs Skyrim, Call of Duty, Resident Evil and more

Sony does it as well. DLC for Assassin's Creed, Battlefield 3 etc. and surely gave publishers also money or contracted third party developers to get/make games like Demon's Souls, Metal Gearr Solid 4, Portal 2, Bioshock and so on.
