WiiU had 3rd-party-support at launch. But it didn't sell much. Visually improved ports sold good on PS4 (Tomb Raider), but not on WiiU (Need for Speed). It seems Nintendo-customers have different needs than customers on other platforms. If 3rd-party doesn't cater to these needs (and I don't see why they should change), they will not sell and therefore they will not support.

There are thrid-party games that sell well on Nintendo-plats, but mostly it needs special effort and special consideration. So I can't see good 3rd-party support in the near future.

Well if you consider 1.2 million sales on a base of 40 million then sales of .3 million units should be decent enough on a 12 million userbase for you wouldnt it?Not saying it's the definite answer but clearly, with a bigger userbase Most Wanted U clearly would have sold a lot more than it did. 

 

Nah, data shows that sales are not linear to userbase. A bigger userbase might have brought in a few more sales, but nothing big.

 

On the other hand shows Hyrule Warriors, Bayonetta 2 or Lego City that 3rd-party games can sell alright, even on an ill-received platform like the WiiU, if there is done enough to make the game appealing to the base.

Not saying it's linear. But I am saying 28 million bigger user base will make a difference. Less or more? Who knows.

And Lego City and Hyrule Warriors both selling 1 million + is a great feat. Numbers on Bayonetta 2 is all over the place so I wont comment on the performance on that game.



Depends on its form, if there's a component/device that supports more mobile like games, then sure. Handheld might get some. Home console form? Not a chance, there is zero incentive for developers to even try at this point, Ubi was badly burned for their efforts at the beginning of the 8th gen and there's simply no one left who is willing to take the risk, there's no cost incentive either, as opposed to the Wii in its heyday.



End of 2016 hardware sales:

Wii U: 15 million. PS4: 54 million. One: 30 million. 3DS: 64.8 million. PSVita: 15.2 million.

Minecraft, shovel knight, fast racing neo have good selling ..
I think editors have to look at Nintendo's machines differently...



Sadly nope. It might get decent support from Japanese publishers though.
