You (I think) can download COD on other consoles, like the 3, 4, 360, and the One, but not the Wii U. Another game is Spongebob (Never thought you'd think of this again, did ya), as to where you cannot download it. Is there a reason to why Activsion/InfinityWard won't let Wii U owners DL?

Smash Bros. 4 Most Wanted (IMO)
1. Slime
2. Shulk
3. Rayman
4. Wonder Red
5. Mii

Activision just don't give a f**k to Wii U and Wii U owners - thats why, or maybe its because high charges in eshop for Nintendo.

↑ Somebody has been playing too much COD with 13 year olds using voice chat... The games would run smooth and glitch less if they were DIGITAL 4 LYFE versions ;)

Because they want you to get the physical version instead (which is alright with me).

I liked to rev up those fryers, I play games, I can't draw good, but I make stick figures named Sheldon and Mr. Randoms.

Activision also removed Pitfall: The Mayan Adventure from the Wii VC about a week ago.

Rest in Peace ShiftyLook
I help keep these threads updated: New 3DS VC games in Japan, Missing 3DS VC and Wii U VC between regions, and Full of list first party Game Boy, Game Boy Color, and Game Gear games missing from the 3DS VC.

I honestly think that any publisher that isn't putting some version of their game on the eShop, is making a big mistake. Some cases are understandable, but most of the time a digital version will ensure more people will see their game from the system itself. It would be like trying to sell a tablet game on a one time use USB drive if you only sell a disc. That may sound a bit extreme, but disc copies have to keep being made if it's popular, and most discs could/would be easily replaced by a digital version.

Even ZombiU could eventually become profitable since Ubisoft has already paid the initial publishing fee, and they don't even really need to print disc copies of some games at some point. This depends on the situation, obviously, but digital looks like it will ultimately be more viable, so I don't understand why companies(or the consumer) would refuse to embrace the digital format.

Very good point. I have very little awareness of disc-only releases because I never go into game shops and browse shelves. If it's not in the eShop it might as well not exist as far as I'm concerned. Miiverse communities are there for all releases, but I tend to only visit them in-game to read/post about what I'm playing at that moment or check responses to my posts, so that wouldn't be enough to let me know about a non-downloadable title.

I wish Activision put things on eShop but I am just glad they support Wii U. Hopefully High Moon's next project comes to Wii U

The only games I can think of that need a disc are games like Skylanders, Wii Fit U, and Disney Infinity. The disc is packed in so that they know you have the software when you buy the set.

Games that don't have things like the Wii Balance Board and other accessories that you need to have in order to play, should have a digital version. That's all there is to it. Like Wii Party U, they want you to have that little tabletop thing for the GamePad, so it makes sense to force users towards a disc copy to have everything to play the game.

I would probably download it if it was in USA, but I would want that little stand thing :P Maybe they'll sell that little thing on their online store. If the digital version comes out, I'll probably just rig my own little stand thing with Legos.

I play those types of games with my cousin.

I downloaded Wii Party U. Have yet to play the table-top Gamepad-only games so I don't see a need for the stand right now. I'm hoping Nintendo offers the stand as a Club Nintendo reward at least - be nice to have something to spend my points on!
