But this is not the same situation at all..wiiu has been in the market for a while now..they pretty much say they have no games planned for it now OR in the foreseeable future
They confirm they will on the ps4/720
The issue here is not the size of the audience but the audience itself. They don't think there's an audience for the game on it. The system has an audience problem
I mean it's not the big boys are there for the wiiu either if you want to go word by word..makes no sense
Why is this so complicated?
DS looks at WiiU and sees a console that has been underperforming since January and for the "foreseable" future they don't think it'll change.
However, they firmly believe the PS4/neXtBox will perform at a level that they will support it eventually.
That's it. Its just userbase size and their personal views on its growth. They are not large enough to risk a game on a small userbase which is why they won't put games on launch PS4/neXtBox either.
"foreseable future" does not equal "never ever". By 2014, DS will have changed their minds as sales will give them that positive long-term outlook.
