The Wii U's launch line up was filled with a bunch of last gen ports and that played a big part in murdering interest in the platform. It would be a mistake to repeat that. Interest in games like this is incredibly fleeting. People will never again care about this game as much as they do right now. Whatever chance this game had in getting the attention of Nintendo fans will have vanished by the time the NX is out.

@Peach64 43k doesn't tell us why the Wii U isn't getting Bloodstained. It's an indie game, which a) don't sell systems and therefore rely on installed base and b) eShop users have been decently receptive to. There's 10 million Wii U owners, many of which would gladly support the game if they could. I'll even go as far as to say that it would sell better on Wii U than it will on Xbox One.

It's all an issue with the engine used to develop the game. If UE4 supported Wii U, then of course Wii U would be getting the game too. And at the rate that Bloodstained is smashing through stretch goals, it's only a matter of time before a port is in the works anyway.

Don't let your uncontainable excitement for taking a dump all over Nintendo's financial straits cloud your judgement.

Gosh, it's weird looking at how young Halford and the boys look there. 2/5 of those guys aren't even in the band anymore. Saw them live a couple years ago and they're quite... well-traveled. Still put on a hell of show though!

I think it'll smash that current top stretch goal of $850,000 within a couple of days, so there's still a chance yet. I think the "treasures in the basement" comment is a tease of a stretch goal, just like in the teaser site the line "ironic, that only with your help can I destroy you..." was teasing at crowdfunding.

@DJStarstryker Upon closer inspection, almost all of them are English artists under 25 years old. I guess that explains it.

Alter Bridge appears to be a US 'post-grunge' rock band that's been around for over 10 years though, so a little surprised I've never heard of them. Maybe because almost every American rock band since Nirvana has been Nirvana Junior and they kinda run together after awhile.

Gary Clark Jr. sounds like he might be my jam though, will have to check out some of his songs.

@faint They lost a lot of money with that price cut. It was supposed to be recuperated in software sales. It wasn't. It was the wrong decision to make. Of course hindsight is 20/20, but now that the Wii U is in a similar position, I hope Nintendo has learned from that failure.

Surprised at solid charting for Mario Party 10. That's a better opening than Mario Party 9. Happy to see Bloodborne chart so well too.

@firstnesfan Would do nothing for sales. It didn't work for the Gamecube either, and that was one of the most aggressive price cuts in industry history. Nintendo's goal at this point is to maximize profit per unit, which means keeping the price at $300 and selling as many games as they can. Mario Kart has something crazy like 50% attach rate, so I'd say they're at least meeting that goal.
