My point. I recall many developers citing the lack of the Wii's processing power as a reason they couldn't, or wouldn't bring their games to the console. And though the Wii-U may not be miles ahead in terms of raw processing power (and recall how difficult the PS3 was to develop for, but it didn't stop anyone) it's certainly somewhat ahead of the current generation.
Most pooh poohed "waggle tech" and lo and behold...
That said, the Game Cube was a powerful beast, but everyone focussed on the LOOK of the hardware itself rather than what was under the hood. I know that all I do is gaze lovingly at my consoles rather than play games associated with any one. You know, how the console looks is FAR more important than the games available for it.
I'm not saying NIntendo couldn't have been more proactive, but I'm of the personal opinion there's more animus going on behind the scenes than we're aware of with some of these developers. Point is, if Nintendo can get the most of their hardware with a little work and effort, so can any other developer demographic notwithstanding.
it's interesting that at this point, we've got developers that seem VERY pro Wii-U and others that aren't. No one really seems to be sitting on the fence as such. It's also interesting that Nintendo has been focusing in family gaming for quite some time and now there's discussion taking place about the abundance of violent content in so many games. Perhaps the pendulum swings the other way now?
Nintendo the company you love to love, or love to hate.
