Outside of the original IP they don't have the muscle to keep up with what game developers want. This is already known. I don't see Nintendo as a wise investment choice even with the head start they were given... Maybe I'm wrong, but I won't risk my dollars on it.
Who's to blame? Crysis 3 was weeks away from launch and Nintendo denied release and cancelled the game from hitting The WiiU. No one wants to release a game for Nintendo or if they do Nintendo blocks it because its not aimed for their audience correctly. Nintendo is making the same mistake as Sega did with the Dreamcast. Dreamcast compared to the PS2 was a fantastic system but due to software support it ended up folding and going a different direction. Maybe the delay with PSO2 in the US Nintendo and Sega might bring a US release of Phantasy Star Online 2 to WiiU only.
"console being "different", not from a lack of titles."
Games make the console. You could have the best console ever made but if it only played games no one wants to play, then it just won't sell. On the opposite end, if a console doesn't have the best hardware it can sell like no tomorrow if it has lots of awesome games you can't get on other systems.
Nintendo is getting it all wrong again as they have so many times in the past. I think they need to hire me as a public opinion expert. But at least someone has the correct line of thinking with the idea that better games will boost sales.
Honestly, I want them to give up on making consoles and go the way of Sega and just make games.
Oh, and for the record, a major reason that Sega gave up the Dreamcast was how quickly it was hacked and how easily games could be copied. Game makers don't want to put a game on a system that makes it easy to copy.
No more games = system goes down in flames
