They DID announced "their third party big games at E3 when all eyes were on them". You know....Assassin's Creed? Batman? Aliens? Ninja Gaiden 3? Lego City? Scribblenauts? Zombi U? Tekken Tag Tournament 2? Mass Effect 3? Darksiders II? Rayman Legends?
Most of those were "Triple A" third party titles, almost all of which announced at launch (which is unprecedented). What else did you WANT them to announce from third parties? It was already an easily assumed fact that anything like Madden, FIFA, WWE, Call of Duty, etc., were also going to be coming to Wii U. And there's a good chance that certain games, like yes even Watch Dogs, may very well wind up on the system. So I'm not really sure what you mean by "they didn't show off third big third party games".
Unless, of course, what you meant to say, was that they didn't show off big FIRST party games. You know, Nintendo published titles. That's what most people have been bitching incessantly about ever since E3. And there's many reasons for that, honestly. For one thing, they obviously wanted the focus to be on Pikmin 3, Mario, and Nintendo Land. Also, I think if they had shown off more "Triple A" first party titles than they did, they probably felt like it would have taken away from/overshadowed the third party stuff they were showing off. And a big part of what they obviously wanted to accomplish with that E3 presentation, was to prove that they DID finally have really strong third party support, and that they were giving a lot of attention and spotlight to third parties, working with them more closely and trying to better make gamers aware of their games on a Nintendo console, etc. You know...something ELSE gamers have been bitching about for years.
I'm just saying. I absolutely wanted to see Star Fox unveiled. BUT, I also realize that they put their focus on third party stuff for a reason. A GOOD reason. And instead of most people (the same people who always criticized them for NOT focusing more on promoting third party content) actually bothering to recognize and PRAISE the fact that Nintendo finally did that? Nope. Instead people bitched about the EXACT thing they've always bitched against in the past: That Nintendo didn't steal the spotlight with their own games. You see how silly the gaming community can be?
Point is, of COURSE there's going to be a lot more first AND third party games for Wii U than just what we've heard about. Or, are some gamers actually that dumb, that they assume what's been shown is ALL we're ever going to get?
Well it's true. It IS a rather great launch lineup, if you ask me. I'd say that while no, I don't personally want every single launch game that has been announced, the fact that I DO want 4-5 of the games announced is a pretty big deal. That was not the case on Gamecube. That was not the case on Wii.
