3rd parties are mostly competiting with nintendo when they put their games on nintendo platforms and end up selling much less than the twins(ps4/xboxone)...people who buy nintendo consoles are mostly for nintendo products and innovative gameplay(as was the case with the wii). 3rd parties found a home with sony and microsoft. thats where all the gamers that like violence, sex and shooters play(mature).
nintendo needs to completetly change its image and philosophy if they want the 3rd party support that sony and microsoft have. i do not see ninetndo changing. they are still turning in profits.
nintendo games are great imo and we are only seeing the tip of the iceberg....gamers will have much conetnt on the wiiU....the non-gamer is what nintendo also needs in order to sell huge amt of consoles... WiifitU and wiiU Party should attract some of the people who like to exercise and play party games at weekends with friends or parties.
after all 3 consoles have launched...the months into the next year will tell what consumers feel has the better games.
