@Farmboy74
I agree 110% regarding dev's, at least for the current gen PS360 they optimize for the 360 mostly, then when regarding the PS3 and to a much lesser degree, the Wii, dev's are only thinking "PORT IT" and "Profit by strength in no's".
It's a lazy fckn industry right now... But hey PS3 has some great exclusives on the way and has had some pretty neat ones already released, but non of those titles as good as they are carry the same kind of weight as the big N's own IP's. In that regard Wii U has nothing to worry about. It's up to Dev's to think about how they as an entity want to make money. How they make their games and for which system is determined by this fact. And the best news as the PS3 has proven, it doesn't need to be a million studio's all making that one great game on Wii U for it to be a success, but Nintendo should really think hard on what select no' of studio's they believe will make the biggest impact on their system to make it a hit and then pull out all the stops to get them on-board.
For first party titles, no-one would be silly enough to say between Nintendo, Retro Studios and Monolith Soft that Wii U's not going to see it's fair share of impeccable games...

"saying that a high budget game that Nintendo had hoped would sell millions had only sold tens of thousands thus far"

I'm calling BS on this comment. What other high budget game on Wii U right now would Nintendo have thought to sell millions of copies on their new system?
I know Black Ops 2 was a high budget game, maybe AC3 and I say "maybe" AC3 and just possibly Batman but even then I'm far from convinced... Anyway, there's no way in hell Nintendo or anyone else expected those "PORTS" to sell millions on a brand new platform during launch, that's just plain stupid.

For the real sauce, Nintendo has apparently struck a home run, and that I guess we all expected. Check it the link below, so there's no confusion, that, that so called high budget game was not a first party title...
