    If Nintendo can port their exclusives to PC I'll never need to buy consoles again

    I can't see how it matters, i don't think people were buying the Wii U for the two exclusives mentioned in this thread.

    But its not just these two games. Wii U has been losing lots of exclusives within just a few months. It makes the console have less value when the user could simply just get a PC in the first place that has a much larger library of games to play. Nintendo games are the only reason I still own Nintendo systems, without that I'd be pure PC gaming.

    At this point though does it really matter? The Wii U is end of life and production is going to end. If the Wii U was going to sell much better it already would have.

    All the Nintendo exclusives alone still make the Wii U a worthwhile console in my opinion, plus it's great for local 4 player gaming, something you don't really get on other current generation consoles or the PC.

    I'm gonna be crying in the corner for the 4th time this month. I'll let you know how I feel after I recover from this great loss.

    Runbow isn't a garbage game! It's an awesome competitive multiplayer game. It reminds me of the fun times I had with the original mario party.

    This is completely natural. When a 3rd party exclusive game becomes rather successful, it starts flying off to other platforms. Remember when Resident Evil 4 got released on PS2? Every other Resident Evil game that came out on the Gamecube before RE4 just didn't make the cut... And at some point the monetary benefits of going multi-platform outweigh the benefits of the exclusivity contract... This is the reason why Sony had to make sure that both PS3 and PS4 just had to have better hardware than their peers... They learned their lesson the hard way after GTA San Andreas got released on Xbox, which was followed by vice city (At the time they were among the best selling video games of all time, while still PS2 exclusives). Most of the time one could count on a game being completely exclusive for 1 console either because it was made by a first party developer, or because it was't exactly a "smash hit"... The problem with exclusivity contracts is that they have a time limit... That being said, I still think it's worth it, because I for one really appreciate playing games as soon as they're released... So sometimes what we'd be getting at the end out of a "3rd party exclusive" is a decent head start, which is something that I completely appreciate...

    So? Exclusives are shit. Maybe this is just me, but if a game can be put on multiple console why don't they make it for multiple platforms?

    Devs have to eat lol. Just putting this out on Nintendo's platforms is financial suicide.
    3rd parties have it really rough on both Nintendo platforms right now.
    Just be thankful 3rd party games besides Shovel Knight and Lego release on the 3ds/U at all.

    At this point making an exclusive for the Wii U (be it commercially or homebrew) is a waste of time.

    I'm totally with you on this, the problem is it can not actually be proven. As much as most of the time multi-platform games are generally better most of the time, still some of the best games EVER were exclusives. One just can not put their finger on it... At the end of the day, all what it takes is for a hefty group of people to become so crazy about one particular game, no matter how much the rest of the world thinks it's complete garbage, that they'd be willing to throw 300$ just to get their hands on that one game. I for one would love to see all video games going multi-platform, and every one gets happy, but the world just doesn't work out that way... unfortunately :(

    I blame Nintendo. I remember the Gamecube being superior to PS2 in terms of hardware (800 MHz vs 300 Mhz processor). The gamecube had all resident evil games on it... Starting with wii onwards, Nintendo's systems couldn't handle such high end titles anymore, or at least we could assume that porting games such as RE5 and 6 to wii/wii u would have been too costly for the developers....
