Wii U owners paid for this game to be made, and was rewarded with this. Slightly Mad studidos basically said "shut up losers, we can do whatever we want" and it's somehow Ninty's fans fault.
As did PS3, PS4, PC, 360 and Xbox One owners, with the largest bulk of payments being from PC sim enthusiasts (all of the highest tier founding positions, which account for a large portion of the total, are pc simmers).
So let's not pretend that WiiU owners paid for all or even a lions share of the game, shall we.
I want numbers on who denoted more.
