And we are to blame.
Lighting returns sold way more then 3d World. And, well....yeah...:/
It was also the lowest selling 3D Mario in its first week. It did not move many extra systems. (think in japan it moved a extra 6,000).
One of the best (if not the best) platformers out right now, and it did worse then a 3rd (i think) FF 13. :/
In the first year of the Wii U, more games came out that i will remember. And play. Then the past gen first year.
And for the life of me...i cant remember the first year of the ps3 or 360.
And other game devs look at it this way, if Nintendo cant move systems with there own games, why bother.
Every single review i read with the good games of the Wii Us had the same comments in them.
"I'd love to play it! But i dont have a Wii U, and im not going to pick one up cause next year it wont matter!" Even if it has around 6 games that only it has that are truly awesome. And more to come. :/
...well maybe if enough of the people who left comments like that did pick it up, it would matter.
Nintendo is stuck in this cool to hate zone. They make great games, and do improve stuff (slowly...they know the internet is there at least..) in there own time. But no matter what they do, they wont get out of that zone. They wont fail to the point they will vanish we could hope...but who knows. They are not looking good right now. But the games still are.
