“The publishers are pretty excited to support the Xbox One and the PS4 – they really didn’t say anything about the Wii U. And we know EA has no games in development for Wii U. If Activision pulls support; if you see Ubisoft , you see Take-Two pull support, the Wii U is a Nintendo-only gaming device which is what they were back with the Nintendo Entertainment System in 1985. They’re not going to sell a lot of consoles if they don’t have games like FIFA and Battlefield and Call of Duty and Grand Theft Auto. Due to that, Pachter asks a simple rhetorical question: “Why would anybody buy a Wii U?”

After the new year, the third parties will have launched the new consoles off right. The Wii U will also pick up Xmas sales. Those two things will make it worth supporting in the year to come.
If I support the game company, then I won't be supporting the blank DVD business.

Honestly he is right, there still isn't a reason to buy the Wii U. If you want nintendo games, get a 3DS. It's getting more support and better games...

Didn't he say something about not being bias a few weeks ago?
