I buy 3rd party games when there's good reason to do so.

I bought Sonic Racing Transformed for the 5-player local splitscreen with the Gamepad.

I bought Black Ops II and Ghosts for the Wiimote + Nunchuk support.

I bought Rayman Legends cos it was the definitive version.

I'm not a charity, 3rd parties have to earn my money.

Absolutely Correct.

Exactly. Just because you put a port of your game on the Wii U doesn't mean people will buy it. You have to make it good.



I bet the Wii U would sell more than 15M LTD by the end of 2015. He bet it would sell less. I lost.

Bring the good third party games to the Wii U (or any Nintendo console), have them be ported over CORRECTLY, release them at the same time as the other consoles, and people will buy them if they don't have the ridiculous issues that we've been seeing as of late.

Yes, Bayonetta 2 is surely flying off shelves. The W101 did too. Devils 3rd I'm sure will be a major success.

The 3rd party games that Nintendo has funded have all done pretty bad. This will tell Nintendo "our fans don't care about 3rd party"

This will confuse Nintendo and cause them to rely on existing IP's still. It's a never ending cycle

Ill give you W101, but Bayonetta 2 isnt doing aweful. Not great, but the people who love it REALLY love it.

To be fair, Bayo 2 is well on its way to outselling the original on 360, and probably on PS3 as well by the time all's said and done.

I'm pretty sure they realised that in the GC era.



Bet with bluedawgs: I say Switch will outsell PS4 in 2018, he says PS4 will outsell Switch. He's now permabanned, but the bet will remain in my sig.

Perhaps what you meant is that you want Nintendo to target a broader audience, though they did that with the Wii and it wasnt that popular. I tink this is more of a case of you beeing in a different segment and wishing Nintendo would target you. Its fair, but it certainly isnt the fault of those that like and buy their classic franchises.

I like some classic Nintendo IP's but also would like to see new IP's. You're right, that's what I want. However, this thread was made from a sales point of view. I believe one issue is the lack of original IP's. Maybe Splatoon will be just the start 

By the way, you are one of the best posters in the sense of your posts are logical and aren't blinded by bias.



time and time again people talk about the power of the system being the reason while GC was stronger than PS2 and equal to Xbox more or less and still it got less 3rd party games than those two.

blaming the fans is getting old as we don't eat up shit made by 3rd parties and people need to get that through their thick skull! Nintendo fans aren't like the other two who eat up just about anything before it is even released.

And where the hell have you heard that we don't want new IP? of course we do but we also want old IPs as well.

I love it when every now and then a guy likes to play expert on what Nintendo should do and has done wrong to end in it's situations starts babling. Give it a rest already the same shit has been spoken hundreds of times and you do it without considering how fans feel or that Nintendo is trying to be profitable.

But isn't there a good deal of hype for Splatoon here and on other forums? It's the #3 most wanted Wii U game in the latest VGChartz poll.

A good deal yes but I've seen many Nintendo fans claim that it looks small and not worthy to be a full retail game. Of course you can't please everyone though.

I personally put Splatoon as my most most anticipated Wii U game
