All other Nintendo consoles had exclusives that were exclusive for that console forever or until the games were retro.On the other hand, Wii U games are getting ported to Switch very soon which means that the Wii U was a waste of money since you could skip the Wii U, get most of its games without waiting a long time and not spend cash on a console that will be in the annals of history for being a piece of s***. If Nintendo didn't promise they would support the Wii U like they supported their other consoles then I wouldn't have bought it.


SMB3 and the NES Mario games were ported over to SNES, numerous SNES games were ported over to GBA, some N64 titles were on DS, Wii games weren't retro and were on eShop for Wii U with some titles like DKCR and XBC being on the 3DS as well. This is something that has been done long before Wii U even when the platforms were successful.

N64 titles on DS were retro, SNES games on GBA were retro, Wii games on Wii U eShop weren't even ports, just ripped ISOs. The only example that applies is the Super Mario games ported to SNES but they only ported Mario, not the myriad of other titles on NES. Never before Nintendo ported so many titles from a console so soon after release.
