Just because its been out longer, doesn't really mean they're more used to it. In order to get used to something, they would have to use it often and outside of Rayman legends, Lego city undercover, and a few others, Wii U versions have not happened 1st has not got first dibs on the development process. Most 3rd party Wii U games are ports of current gen versions, some of which are actually missing features that current gen has.

For them ( sony and micro) to start working on next gen right when Wii U was announced is sounds weird. Wii u was announced in 2011 and released in 2012. Sony and Microsoft, in about 2 years, developed brand new systems and software architecture, just out of fear of the Wii U?(which, when it was announced, still could do some of the things ps3/360could do) If they saw better hardware a threat, the GameCube would've outsold the xbox and ps2. That generation proved to them that Nintendo was not an equal rival.

AAA games alone take at 3 years or more of development, so if what your saying is true, some developers were working on games for systems that weren't even on the drawing board yet or what those specs would be. PS4 was started in 2008 and they sought developers opinion in the creation process. It would only help Nintendo if they did the same for after the Wii U, so 3rd parties could hold people over until 1st party games came out, instead of telling people to "Please Understand". It feels like Nintendo just created the console then went to developers after the fact, but unfortunately it hurt them this time around.

If this Fall's Strategy was when the Wii U was 1st released, no one would be bad mouthing Nintendo or questioning its future. The 3ds struggle should have taught them what not to do, but I get a strong feeling that when the successor to the Wii U comes out, we'll be hearing more "Please Understand" when the drought happens again.

Sony and MIcrosoft have been working on PS4 and Xboxone for 5-6 years, if not more. Nintendo released Wii U early to get a head start on PS4 and Xbox one (which is the same tactic that they did with the wii). 3rd party aren't working on wii u game because they're preoccupied, the Wii U has a totally different system/CPU/ etc. No one, unless bribed ,would go out of their way to learn a system to make a game that can't sell that well because the console hasn't sold that well. THINK.

The weaker specs just give people a reason not to get it. Somehow nintendo thinks a console with similar specs and online capabilities is selling out but it could just be that if everyone else is doing it, it may just be the best course of action, not just joining the bandwagon. A nintendo console that could play mario and bioshock (or insert 3rd party game) would easily dominate the market (going after the nostalgic and current gamer bases).

Wii U needs new games, not a remastered version of a decade old zelda game with better graphics, different controls, and a hard mode. I think the last full new IP they fathered was pikmin (excluding wii sports and the many other story-less collection of minigames) and that was in the early 2000's.. The moment they release a new metroid, or an actually new zelda, or even a new starfox, that is when the Wii U will turn around.
