All 3rd parties should be wanting to put out all their big games on the Wii U by the middle of next year, I think.

What I think is interesting is that after all of EA's rambling the next CoD is going to be on the Wii U.

Nintendo doesn't care if third parties will release games on Wii U or not. I don't care either.
If something interests me that I can't play on Wii U, I will reluctantly buy a PS4. It's not that i belittle the price of the console, but the real cost is buying all the games for the console. If you keep it to a minimum, nobody should care what comes or what not comes to Wii U. It is going to be filled enormously with Nintendo games and exclusive games that no other console will have, so the Wii U is worth it regardless of any third parties.

Its a apparently a native solution so its less of being desperate and more of there's barley any work on the developer side to do anything. (which is a good thing). Its like how android can miracast on a system level so developers don;t have to add anything special to their apps/games.

WAT!

This is the stupidest thread I seen since..... the first Wii U doom thread. Even if the tech specs are not as amazing as the comipition..... it is still Nintendo's next gen console. What a stupid and pointless thread. XD

I'm pretty sure it's a desperate push to sell the Vita even if it's probably a good idea. I still don't see many people getting a Vita purely to use this feature but and I wouldn't call it "native". It isn't there by defauly and because of that I wouldn't expect many games to use it in a novel way.

In comparison the Wii U has it natively so Devs are encouraged to use it in different ways. The easiest thing to do is simply mirror the TV and some do that... but some put maps on there or inventory which is trivially different. Some give the second screen a different game screen entirely. Probably just as easy with the Vita + PS4 except that everyone has the second screen so you're not wasting your time building something nobody cares about.

BY Native were talking the api and not the hardware component, I don;t have a TV with mircacast but my nexus 4 and 7 both nativly support it.

Yeah, that just sounds like a waste of resources. I know I didn't buy my Vita just to play PS4 games.

Third-party titles aren't supporting Nintendo, even though Nintendo is having tough luck. Those companies just want to win and have no care for the consumers entertainment. In fact, I wouldn't doubt if those other companies were working to get money rather to build for consumers' entertainment. It appears that other companies do not find the Wii U as next gen and want to see Nintendo fail. Nintendo builds for consumers' enjoyment and just require patience and support. If third-party companies want to see Nintendo win, they should help instead of enjoying Nintendo's trouble.

Well yeah and its an added feature that couldn't have been anything but a few lines of code to get to work.

Looking forward to FFX myself.

That's...That's not how Business works. At all. Companies don't just help eachother unless it benefits them. They're not charities. Entertainment is not a necessity, there's no need for people going around acting like they're working for the common good of everybody. And None of them want to see Nintendo "Win", nor do they necessarily want to see them "lose", not unless Nintendo's success or failure would severely affect them, and to be quite honest, I don't think it does at this point, unless Nintendo then becomes a Third Party company and kicks butt all over the place.

There's more I could say, but I think those are the main points. Welcome to reality.

Programing is one thing, optimization could be something else entirely. Hopefully I'm wrong, but I could see it being a major limiter to a lot of games.

Since the Wii U is already out, it technically isn't "next gen". It's now current gen (8th gen if Wikipedia is to be believed).
Once the PS4/Xbone come out, they too will join the current generation along with the Wii U.

Can we stop throwing around marketing buzzterms now?

All right, sorry man. I now look at that post and see the stupidity of it. Companies compete, you just reminded me about, so I realize.

What does that have to do with anything? Would be just interesting if Medal of Honor or Battlefield 4 were on the Wii U, but that seems highly unlikely.
