See this is the problem 3rd parties face, developers like Capcom and Konami who only put effort into Sony and MS games while writing off Nintendo fans as crap. This is why gamers like me aren't interested in them anymore because they already wrote ME off.
3rd parties screwed themselves. I really don't care if 'X' or 'Y' game ever hits the Wii U anymore. Why should I care if, given historical precedence, they're just going to invent some absurd excuse in order to talk themselves out of developing for a Nintendo system.
Put it this way: It's a free market, isn't it? 3rd parties need to convince ME to buy their games, not the other way around. Since when do I have to prove that I'm worthwhile for their support? That's bull and you know it. They need to prove to ME that they are worth MY support and they haven't been doing a very good job of that for YEARS now. In business you NEVER attack a potential customer, unless you have no intention of them ever becoming a customer in the first place. Meaning, they have no interest in Nintendo-centric gamers. So I have no interest in them.

Yeah, it started out that way but eventually even the so-called casuals stopped buying their trash. If the casual market was still buying we'd still be seeing plenty of cash-in software. But there isn't. In fact, there are practically no new Wii games coming out at all. I wonder what's going to happen if 3rd parties try to pull the same stunt on the Wii U and it flops from the outset since they've already soured any possible customers. Say good-bye to those huge 3rd party projects that only existed this generation because of Wii profits.
And say good-bye to many more 3rd parties who will end up going bankrupt trying to figure out how to fund those games this next gen since the market they've cultivated will put up with nothing less than bigger and better.
