It's no secret the Wii U is failing to capture the public's imagination nor has it found it's way into their wallets. The Wii U lacks games but the good news is games are coming but what I'm finding more and more annoying is that the 3rd party games we are getting are lacking features and are costing more.
Need for speed on Wii U. Ok so this is the fullest and best looking version but it costs a ton more on Wii U. If I have the choice of a ps3 copy for less than £15 I'm not going to buy the wii U version.
Deus Ex Directors cut on Wii U. The most expensive on Wii U by far. not to mention the original can be found for less than a Fiver brand new.
Splinter Cell on Wii U. Lacking offline co op.
Batman Arkham origins on Wii U. No Multiplayer mode.
Do they even want to sell their games on Wii U? why bother making less effort? If it's not fully featured and priced similarly then just don't bother.

The reason NFS/ deus ex costs more is because it's newer, look at the cost of Zombie U on amazon- time = depreciation.
And as for no multiplayer, it's maybe from the online restrictions, there isn't really a nintendo wii u online game at all at the moment. It's strongly looking like a first party machine at this rate, and I don't see it changing in the near future.
edit: I just realised COD is online, so maybe it's because there aren't enough people with the console to make it worth the effort. Chicken or the egg as they say...

I can see your point but it just feels like they arent putting the effort in. According to this article Deus ex will cost more on Wii U than ps360. http://mynintendonews.com/2013/07/30...ost-expensive/
Makes no sense seeing as it's essentially the same game.

I can see where your comit from, i would be annoyed about the state of the Wii u if it was the only console I owned but I got my 360. I'm just waiting it out. I like what I've bought on it so far and mates still have a great time when they come over and play some Mario n party games. Will have to wait and see.

Sorry to hear Toby about your choice of getting a Wii U. Is well known that there are still some loyal followers to the brand but it looks like The Wii U lacks the punch to be interesting to consumers and developers alike. Nintendo real messed up with the Wii U. I don´t know how this console is going to do to compete with the PS4 and Xbox One and the new PC gen to come. Furthermore the more years to come; the more ignored will get,the less you will play it. Not even a slightly price cut can ever save them from the poor sells showed since release. But at least you showed some courage to say,well I´m not happy of what´s going on with my console so other should be informed and make a decision of to get or not a Wii U.
It´s time to say companies you want my money?You better work for it and the Wii U is not the case.

Everything about Wii U just seems so half-arsed now. I sort of feel they need to do a complete re-launch with heavy marketing etc, or just move on tbh.
Maybe they could also somehow subsidise development more to encourage developers to donate more time to the Wii U versions?

I wish I hadn't bought mine, such an impulse purchase. Then I had to go out and buy all these Wiimote Plus controllers and nunchucks...
And now I have an agonizing wait for all the (hopefully) amazing first party games.

I'm fairly happy with mine, though I've enjoyed Nintendo titles since the NES and still enjoy some of that Ninty magic.
I'm happier with it than I was with my Wii, that was a terrible purhase - ended up giving it to a friend gratis (after finishing Last Story and Xenoblade).
I do find that I don't buy any games for it though. I always wanted 101 but am now waiting for it to hit a tenner in a few months after not selling well.

My opinion of it has swung back and forth over months. I loved it initially liked most would with any new console. Loved Zombie U, Nintendo Land and Mario were fun solo and great party games, still are, and played Black Ops bit.
With the drought setting in, Rayman Legends growing delay and Monster Hunter being a let down for me I slowly grew more impatient and felt the monthly Nintendo apology wearing thin. I regretted buying the Wii U.
Now? I'm not quite so disappointed, the console is still good for parties, my partner (who didn't grow up as a gamer) finds the games we play co-op much more engaging than my Xbox titles. There are games on the horizon I'm looking forward to. And if I could go back in time to myself in the queue on the Oxford street launch, I may be nuts but I would buy the Wii U all over again..
