According to the anonymous developer, the Wii U’s apparent sluggish CPU is one of the reasons of the lack of games. If the console isn’t powerful enough, how are developers expected to bring high profile games onto it, right? The developer also cites Nintendo’s lack of experience regarding online services as one of the reasons as well, along with the programming tools provided by the company which just weren’t up to scratch. In fact it seems that the folks at Nintendo weren’t experienced about either the Xbox Live or PSN where developers were told to stop referencing it simply because they could not make the connections. To sum it up, “They were trying to play catch-up with the rival systems, but without the years of experience to back it up.”
Of course different developers might have different reasons for choosing not to publish games on the Wii U, and we have also seen how some developers, such as Ubisoft, announce their support of the console. Also it should be noted that this is from a third party developer’s perspective, as Nintendo has in the past has had no problems putting out fun and exciting first-party games themselves, but what do you guys think? Do you agree with what this anonymous developer is saying about the Wii U?
