Third-party developer cycle for Wii U

Game gets announced for all platforms.
Game is revealed to have no online MP or something else for Wii U or becomes multiplat rather than single plat.
Developer or publisher gives out BS excuse.
Game is released.
Wii U version sells incredibly less than the ports from any console.
Developer or Publisher calls quits on the Wii U because it sells less on the Wii U than it did on X360 and/or PS3, even though it is their fault.

This all may not be true, but it will happen to a publisher or developer that is not Sega.

Hell, Sega is doing a better job than most publishers/developers for the Wii U.

    SEGA's doing better than Nintendo, even. At least Sonic Lost World is actually bring a new, innovative game to the Wii U unlike the batch of rehashes Nintendo announced for the next year.

    3dworld being completely different than 3dland, mk8 being beautiful looking smash bros being a big unknown, bayontta 2, w101, and a slew of other nintendo developer/published wii u titles.

    X, maybe, IDK much about them.

    But Mario Kart 8 is definitely looking like a rehash. The antigravity tracks don't seem to add much to the gameplay, they're just the same stuff in 3 dimensions for the most part. And aside from that, it's basically Wii and 7 combined.

    Mario Kart 8 is an F-Zero game done up like Mario Kart, also you're saying that MK7 didn't do anything to innovate the series? I think it mixed things up quite a bit. You definition of innovation is seriously off dude.

    Look harder then, it's more than Sonic with gravity gimmicks. The multi tiered speed system and parkour system do more for Sonic gameplay than anything from the likes of Super Mario 3D World, Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze, or Mario Kart 8 does for their respective franchises. Also, unlike MK8, Lost World takes full advantage of the gravity mechanics, levels like Windy Hill and Desert Ruins 2 have much more unique level design than anything I've seen in 8.

    To some degree, yes, but what 7 did to innovate the series is not relevant because that game is now a thing of the past, we can only measure 8's innovation by what it does different from all other games. And 8 doesn't seem to really do anything different from its predecessors than the anti gravity, and that's being used for show more than making actual improvements to the track design.

    @Bolt the Cat; You can call Mario Kart a rehash all you like, it doesn't change the fact that people will buy the game because it's fun.

    @VGCrasher; If people enjoy the game, fine. Good for them. But Mario Kart 8 isn't really going to do much to attract gamers to the Wii U besides the people who are already Nintendo fans. Samey Nintendo games aren't going to be enough for Nintendo to be successful this gen, they either need better third party games or more innovative gameplay like they did last gen. Since Wii U is in the same position as the Wii when it comes to third parties, they should go for the latter. This is why it's such a big deal that the games are too samey, they're not doing enough for Nintendo to prove that it's capable of creating new gameplay experiences.

    @Bolt the Cat:

    The Wii U needs sales this holiday, Donkey Kong Country Returns sold more the Metroid Prime trilogy, Super Mario 3D Land sold better than Galaxy 2 and Mario Kart 8 like all MK games are guaranteed system sellers, these may seem like lazy, rehashed moves to you but in reality these were smart choices. Nintendo is aiming to attract the userbase of people who bought the 3DS to the Wii U as the 3DS is selling like hotcakes which from a business standpoint is more a logic decision than trying to attract "hardcore" gamers who would rather buy PS4.

    Also Nintendo stated that 3D world won't be the last 3D Mario on the Wii U, so it's safe to say a Galaxy 3 or something completely new could still happen.
