Since Reggie has told IGN that the titles shown at this years E3 are all "launch window" titles, let's compare what a launch with these titles would be compared to that of the Wii, 360 and PS3.
First the multiplatform titles (the non-exclusives without Including PC or arcades).
The Wii clearly has the most, but that was due to many companies releasing titles on both the Gamecube and Wii. The WiiU seems consistent with the 360 and PS3's launch, but should they be closer to the Wii with companies moving over current gen titles to the WiiU like the Wii did with Gamecube games?
Now the exclusives (ignoring if it was released on PC or in arcades, only comparing consoles).
The WiiU seems to have the most exclusives (that is as long as these are all released close to launch, which Nintendo won't say - not more than "Launch Window" tells us). And the second highest number of games overall (with 23 total, only beaten by the Wii's 25).
This seems like a good launch window to me - however to sell me on it I need to see some titles coming out next year to be certain the games will last; still I think people should look at this and put it into perspectives - Nintendo may have been bad at explaining it and selling the console at E3 but there isn't a lack of games themselves.
What do you people think? - seeing this has affected your thoughts on the WiiU (it definitely affected mine in putting them properly out there for me to compare, although it still hasn't won me over - and we cannot be concrete that these games will be out at/vero close to launch).
I don't want people to think I am simply saying that Quantity is better than Quality and that Nintendo is in the same position as the other companies were with their consoles at the start of this generation - Quality is clearly the thing that will give lasting appeal and Nintendo is clearly in a different position now. But we only have so much information to go on - I don't think this information is clearly shown in any other way without digging for it and we cannot know the quality of these titles or ports until release so it is all speculation. Remember this is all subject to change and still from early information on a product which Nintendo has not yet outlined full details on.
*There is a version of Lego City Undercover for the 3DS so it could be argued it isn't an exclusive (alike to Scribblenauts Unlimited) but the developers are saying it is a different story and levels to be expected on the portable version - so I think since this has a complete single player experience only on the WiiU then I will continue to have it set as an exclusive - however keep in mind it may turn out to be the same as the 3DS version, we simply do not know. And alike to a lot here - we have to just rely on word-of-mouth from them as to what is true or not*
