Agreed. I appreciate that the Wii U version of Black Ops II has some cool GamePad features, but in general the game performed worse than other versions.
So I'd rather go for the version that plays and performs best.
Now, if Nintendo worked with Activision to create a unique title - maybe a spin-off like Big Red One - that took advantage of the Wii U hardware, I'd be all over it.
Or Nintendo could stop making hardware that's maybe 5-6 years behind their competetion? Third parties aren't going to give any one of three hugely preferntial treatement like making an entirely new game for just one hardware vendor from a huge IP like COD because the company has slapped a screen on a controller.
Sony and MS I'm sure would love to have their own console exclusive COD built specifically for their machines too. That isn't how the business works and if Nintendo was expecting that they really are naive.
I understand that, Soundwave. I understand that huge publishers like EA, Activision, and Ubisoft need to maximize profits by catering to the lowest common denominator. I know that investing in a relatively underpowered platform like Wii U would be a waste of time and resources. I'm not suggesting that Nintendo should get a console exclusive Call of Duty or Far Cry or Dragon Age because the GamePad sports a built-in screen.
This is just me daydreaming, innocently, about a small project along the lines of Crystal Chronicles or Dead Space: Extraction. As someone who owns a PS4, XBO, and Wii U, I would like it if publishers made more games that took advantage of each system's unique properties.
