    It seems another developer is staying away from the Wii U thanks to its slow start. However Avalanche founder Christofer Sundberg also sighted Nintendo themselves as a reason for not investing energy into the struggling console.

    Meh I never liked just cause as a series its just shovelware, Christofer Sundberg is just being a dick anyway. I am happy with Mario and Link thank you very much! :grog:

    Again...bad news for us wiiu-owners. :(


    While nintendo can't exactly do more than they're already doing to get those consoles sold*, they CAN make sure that those communications are improved. Coming from a company that sucks in this department**, I can tell this means a LOT to morale of employees.







    * at least...I'm assuming they're doing everything they can on this.
    **our communication department is usually the last one to know anything...let alone distribute something useful

    I can't wait for the avalanche of "IT'S THEIR FAULT FOR NOT TAKING RISKS"/"NINTEN-DO NO WRONG" comments to flood in.

    Nobody wants to program for the WiiU heck even Nintendo themselves doesn't care, just look at what system most of their decent first party games will be on, it isn't the WiiU that's for sure. The West think it's too anemic in specs and games won't sell on it, the East just doesn't give a flying shit

    It seemed like he avoided the obvious answer.

    "Why are we not developing for the Wii U? Just Cause."

    This is just so frustrating... I really don't know what to do as a Wii U owner, there aren't really all that many great games for it. But that doesn't mean there won't be... Do I cut my losses? Or hold on till something good comes along for the Wii U. To me it seems like just about every other day another developer expresses why they have no interest in deving for the console.

    Of course not. Many launch PS4 games will be on the PS3, too, which kinda defeats the purpose of upgrading to a new console. I'm not going to upgrade to a PS4 for a while if I can still get stuff like Assassin's Creed 4, The Evil Within and Watch Dogs on my PS3 and I doubt I'm the only one. That was the same problem the Wii U faced, I think. A lot of its launch titles were ports of PS3/360 games, which people obviously weren't going to buy a new console for if they already had a PS3 or 360.

    ERROR!
    Fair enough, I don't see a reason why anyone would develop games for it until Nintendo starts to do something about sales. Our worries shouldn't be affected or focused on thirdparty support this early, we should instead look at what Nintendo is up to in terms of software development, potentially new thirdparty relationship agreements, advertising etc. At the moment we know close to nothing. I've mentioned this before but, support comes when there's an audience and as always, Nintendo has to to it.
    We know for a fact that they've once again have put a system on hold, late updates, not wanting to advertise it yet, delaying titles... it all hanging by a thin thread now, E3 and holiday sales will be their best shot at saving the Wii U, and given the massive amounts of money they have it shouldn't be a problem changing things for the better.

    Not getting in touch with Nintendo easily seems to be a false statement, every other developer is saying the opposite.

    Nintendo is worth 18.6 billion dollars, and they've been through this before. 3DS etc.

    Console market and AAA games in general seem to be headed towards a crash to me. Dev costs keep ramping up because people expect much more from them. These higher risks make publishers only greenlight what's been proven to sell. The proven to sell games are faced with much higher competition because that's all that's out. The games don't sell enough to cover the dev costs. Publishers blame whatever originality there was in the game. Rinse & repeat.

    As for the WiiU. It won't sell until people make games for it and people won't make games for it until it sells. Huzzah for the Catch 22. It's going to be underpowered in a few months unless that GPU based rendering system it has can run a lot more efficiently than the last generation's more CPU based model.

    Just Cause 2 ,while kinda repetitive, is a fun game. Especially on PC with all the hacks and shit.
