Nintendo has been a major player in gaming ever since it saved the industry in the 80s. They will continue to be a major player in the future. However, Nintendo AND third parties would REALLY clean up if third parties weren't such scaredy cats when it came to their "real" games on Nintendo platforms. It's the same old tired cycle... A half-assed attempt, poor sales, pointing the finger at Nintendo... rinse, repeat. It's ridiculous. Third parties just refuse to learn.

Fifa's got the manager feature that is unlike the other consoles (one can be the manager while the other controls the players). of course we all know about true "split screen" experience with COD Black Ops 2. and just recently, Gearbox did say that the gamepad is truly a hardcore's controller and that Aliens Colonial Marines is best experienced on the Wii U. my belief is that, for now we'll have to settle for ports (with minimal gamepad use), but in a few months or so, we will see how developers can come up with creative use of the Wii U system (not just the gamepad). regarding ports, although most of them will look either the same or slightly better, or will lack some features (i.e. Fifa 13, Madden), I believe Wii U will still have features that provide added experience to the gameplay. take for instance, Assassin’s Creed III, although it will be the same as the other versions previews suggests the Wii U experience will be better most especially for the sea battles.

After all the gamecube and n64 underperformed and the Wii wasn't given every major 3rd party title despite its eventual success.... but why do we have to pretend it's a bad thing that this WiiU console got ports. Not just any ports though but ports of titles that have never before graced Nintendo consoles ever from Batman Arkham series to Ninja Gaiden to Tekken (which has been a major franchise for several generations and all missed prior Nintendo platforms). I just don't see why Nintendo press are the only people who have to be realistic when virtually everyone else is singing the praises of consoles that underperformed this generation and who haven't even announced their next plan? Why is it that I have to suffer you people questioning the most assinine things? This is a console that launches with some of the biggest titles ever like Fifa, Madden, CoD, Assassins Creed 3, and many other titles that you might not consider "core". It has at least 16 titles at launch that have the potential to be million sellers from Skylanders to Just Dance to ZombiU and CoD. It's not a time to be negative just because it'd be too arrogant to admit that this is an amazing launch with lots of exclusives and many titles that have never graced a Nintendo platform. Let's celebrate every once in a while. I'm not saying ignore past mistakes but keep them in context and realize this isn't the past but this is a console that is meant to fix those issues.

I think the reveal of Sony and Microsoft's next consoles will definitely give us a better indication of what the next few years are going to be like; if they're much more powerful than Wii U will it simply be leap frogged yet again? Will these new consoles have unique features like the Wii U's Game Pad in an attempt to differentiate themselves, perhaps ending the multiplatform title as we currently see it.

I looked at a list of the first 50 software titles and was only interested in 3 titles for myself. Not good from my standpoint.
