I am just amazed the Wii U is getting 3-5 digital games a week now on average. Not including VC games. Since Shovel Knight is more of an anomaly it seems I do not understand how they are doing so well. Some of these games on Wii U get one or two comments a week or even a month on Miiverse, yet their developer just pushes more out.
We cannot even use retail as an example, because some of these games cost as little as a dollar. On sale, Just an average balloon was 10 cents on the eshop and I got to run was a penny at one point. Where is the profit? Now these were extreme examples and one of them was for Iwata's charity, but still, that was even more money down the drain.
