    I always thought that wasn't EA's lack of support that killed off the Dreamcast, directly. Rather it the gamers who thought it this and so stayed away, missing out on a number of great games that would have won over more support for the system.
    The thing that killed the Dreamcast was the playstation. Everyone had the first one and they hung on for the second. The PS brand was so strong back then it was impossible to compete.

    I dont think perception of it having games was a problem. People knew there were a load of decent games for it, it just wasnt made by sony.

    Its a totally different cause of failure to the wii u.

    Of course, I'm certainly not going to argue that disappointment isn't the most logical and popular stance. I don't think there have been all that many cancellations though, have there? I can only think of Aliens and Crysis 3.

    The bigger concern (for me at least) isn't stuff getting cancelled, it's stuff not getting developed in the first place! Almost every new game multi-format game announcement doesn't have the Wii U getting a version. EA were barely supporting it in the first place and are all but withdrawing entirely. Nintendo themselves have only really got a handful of games they've revealed.

    The onus is really on Nintendo to make games that sell consoles. Will they get better at this as time goes on? Who knows. I can completely understand being cautious though, as they really haven't proven they're really invested in the Wii U yet. This time next year even I may not be happy ;)
    I bought one expecting barely any games and some mediocre hardware with the occasional gem. Even with those low expectations I am astounded at what a waste it has been. One mediocre game. Done poor ports and two Nintendo exclusives that are the worst thing they have done since Mario sunshine. And they don't even have anything in the pipeline and are not even trying to get third parties on board.
    Joke Post?

    New Super Mario 3D Game
    New Mario Kart
    Xenoblade Sequel
    New Yoshi Game
    WW remake
    New Smash Bros
    Pikmin 3
    Bayonetta 2
    Deus Ex
    The Wonderful 101

    Plus other stuff to be announced in the next month.
    WHAT A LIST!!!
    Lmao not to your tastes then? That's fair enough. For me its a great list. Just need to find out what's launching on the PS4 and nextbox now. :)

    Do you have any actual point, I pointed out that you repeatedly post in this thread despite declaring that you have no interest in hardware or software and your response is to insult my wit and appearance.

    Yes, it's me, let's see a picture of you, handsome.

    He has an interest in gaming and nintendo. Sadly, for you, this isnt 'The Nintendo Mutal Dick Sucking Thread', so he his allowed to post critical things about them.

    You make it so easy ecosse, it's hard to resist.

    I play games, of course I'm interested in them. If you didn't behave like the equivalent of a yappy little overexcited dog that everybody on the street is irritated by, you'd perhaps consider that people are pulling your leg.

    Or alternately, I'm off to pray at my Nintendo hate shrine made from desecrated Mario games and stick a Banjo Kazooie cartridge up a Mario plushies' bottom.

    Don't look at new article on front page Nintendo lovers.

    Defeat is not getting knocked down, but refusing to get back up.

    Yep, EA have pretty much abandoned ship, not sure what else is behind it but Nintendo was always asking for trouble with an underpowered machine again.
    Of course if these titles end up on PS360 we'll know it has nothing to do with any technical reason.

    A more accurate title could be "Nintendo failing to support third parties on the wii u, driving away potential developers."

    It is a bad sign when even Nintendo are reluctant to develop games for the Wii U.

    Can't wait for the Super Nintendo II ambassador programme that enables all early Wii U adopters to grab the new console at half price. :)

    It's a list that proves Nintendo's commitment to innovation within the gaming medium. Sequel, sequel, sequel, sequel, REMAKE!!!, sequel, sequel, sequel, REMAKE!!!, something.

    I'm being generous with 'sequel' for most of them as they're more or less add on packs for existing games.

    Everyone loves a sequel, and/or remake. (Everyone meaning me!! ;) )
    Nintendo obviously more guilty then others but Sony and MS are learning how to milk it.

    God of war
    Gears of war
    Gran turismo
    Forza
    Halo
    Little big planet.
    Ratchet & Clank

    Plus the HD collections of older games like Ratchet & Clank, God of war, Metal gear solid, Jak & Daxter.

    Don't know quite where I'm going with this. I guess I'm trying to say all popular games will keep spawning sequels.
    We will see more Uncharted, GT, killzone, Little Big Planet, God of war on the PS4.

    Luckily I like all of those that I've mentioned besides KZ. Win win for me as I love the exclusives on every system. :)

    I do hope Nintendo can put out enough games to make the console a success, not really holding my breath though. It's swiftly becoming a "2nd console only" which is absolutely terrible.

    Still, if anyone can take the hit of a failed console and afford to still come back it's the big N.
