Hello there friend,
I can understand alot of what you are saying about the Wii U and the third party situation.
In regard to Zombi U, yes it will probably sell 1 million lifetime but I can't ignore that the actual developer deemed it a failure. Did it sell well for a low budget new IP? Yes. But i failed to break even because not enough people bought it. I can understand why Ubisoft declined to make a sequel.
Bayonetta II under performed in relation to the insane scores given. Various outlets gave it a 10/10. I think if a game of that caliber were on PS4 or X1, it would have sold alot more. 600,000 units for an amazing game was disappointing to me. I was hoping it would sell alot more because it is unique. Much like Sunset Overdrive, many thought it would sell a fair bit more by now.
I do think 200,000 is very low my friend. FF13-3 selling 200,000 on Xbox 360 is very low also. I dont even think it was worth Square's time and investment(for FF13-3). To answer your question, if Square released several games on any console that failed to make a profit, then yes, they would be smart to consider cutting support on that console(be it PS4, Vita, X1 etc).
You said many of those games are not AAA titles. Which ones then are not AAA titles? If they are not AAA, than what are they? Tekken/COD/Assassin's Creed/Batman/etc are all AAA titles. Yes maybe they had fewer developer's working on the Wii U port, but it doesn't make it a non-AAA title.
The last part I can agree with you. The developers that never released a single game on the Wii U probably should not talk because they are just guessing. I feel Ubisoft and Activison(to a lesser extent) did give the Wii U some support. Much like they did with the Vita(which I love that console). But I can agree that some of ports given to both the Vita and the Wii U were no where near on par as the X1/PS4 or even the PS3/360. I would love to see the Wii U succeed as I do think Nintendo still make awesome games but I can see why some developers are cautious to port their games over... Sadly to me, it seems only Nintendo games sell very well on the Wii U. Hopefully a third party developer/s can change that soon. Maybe with Nintendo's great first/second party games, they won't even need third party support. Sorry if I came off as rude or aggressive before too, you seem like a true gaming fan and I cant fault you for that.
