    Right, first of all, this is not a Nintendo Bashing thread, I own a Wii U and its great, but with the recent news that Rayman Legends has gone multiplatform and Nintendo have lost exclusivity and activision openly slamming the console, is this a sign that third party developers are abandoning the console this early in its lifespan? We have the launch of two powerhouse consoles over the next 12-18 months which will almost certainly overshadow Nintendo's latest offering- I can definately see shades of the Dreamcast in the Wii U launch but what do you guys think, can Nintendo claw it back?

    moved to correct forum due to poster's blindness as not a "windows games" issue.

    I personally think that, if the WiiU would have been a Sony or Microsoft product, it would be dead in the water. But Nintendo already saved the Wii with their own licenses, so I personally don't see why this shouldn't work with the WiiU too. There wasn't that much third party support for the Wii either.
    On the other hand, if it is true that the WiiU is already hacked, it might be dead in the water.
    I don't like the entire concept (and I think the hardware is way overpriced for what it can do), so I couldn't care less for the WiiU. It would be a shame though, if the last good console by Nintendo would have been the Gamecube.
