Most 3rd party developers are really lazy. Nintendo is the worst option if you're lazy because it require you to work with more limitations, which often produced better results back in the pre 3D era and pushed innovative ways of working "around" the hardware.
>>282474463 Going on a nintendo system is deceiving for publishers.
You look at their big system sales and think "ah, our games will do well on this platform" but in reality, 99% of nintendo owners are under the age of 12 and rely on their parents to buy games for them. And they only buy nintendo games.
So they put their games on there, they lower all the graphic specs because they are technically inferior systems and then it doesn't sell. Now you have a shit looking game with shit sales because nintendo is shit.
Monster Hunter and Youkai Watch being 2 exceptions.

I'm still waiting.
Also the whole "nintendo is a tyranic monopolic company" ended before the 90s started.
And hey, you guys now got whart you wanted, FINALLY we have a third party-controlled industry, with EA and Activision on top ruling everyone and dictating how consoles should be made. Aren't you happy?

Because most people on /v/ (and most people who play vidya)are teenagers/kids and can't buy more than 1 console... why do you think console/system wars exist at all? Besides companies adocritnating people to be brand-loyalists.
>>282476281 I don't even have a steady job. I earned most of the cash I spent on these things from mowing lawns or shoveling driveways, I'm incredibly poorfag tier outside of my assets. I buy things I use for a long time, like vidya, instead of food/liquor/etc.
>>282474463 Because its home consoles have either not held majority market share, lacked powerful hardware compared to other consoles, or are heavily dominated by first/second party titles that scoop up all the sales.
>>282476508 >re heavily dominated by first/second party titles that scoop up all the sales Yes, this is the reality. 3rd party developers like a weak 1st part position, which they certainly have on Playstation/Xbox. Those 1st parties are typically pretty shit/in low supply.
For consoles third party support is virtually dead. But they have had strong 3rd party support for handhelds. Even the 3DS today has some third party exclusives. Plus a good handful have gotten outside of Japan.
>>282474463 Sigh. Lemme get the pasta... > "Let's get one thing straight: this is a nintendo box. It plays Nintendo games" - gamasustra > Nintendo demographic only buys nintendo for its 1st party > 3rd party games have traditionally (and have always) done poorly on Nintendo consoles > Terrible hardware > multiple issues with 3rd party dev and Nintendo support > dat proprietary disc bullshit > region locking > ancient business practices like lp debacle, expensive dev kits, focusing on casual demographic. > focusing on casual demographic (who have then moved on to mobile platforms)
>>282474463 Because they refuse to change with the times and would rather rehash Mario 6 more times per gen, rather than gaining actual third party support without selling out.
Nintendo believes that if they change even the slightest bit to help persuade 3rd parties to join them, they will turn into microtransaction/DLC cancer like Microsoft and Sony.
Not to mention their hardware has always been a gen behind since the Wii, and they continue to brand themselves as a game company for the family and children. I'm not saying that they need to go full grimdark edgy 2cool4u like Sony does, but still, when you advertise yourself as family-oriented, a lot of people are not going to buy your console because they assume it's for kids only. Then your install base is small, and that makes 3rd parties not want to develop for you because they see it as an investment that won't make any profit.
>>282478817 >grandpa this upset over pushing the industry forward and making things easier
CGI is at an all-time high in quality now. In Tron: Legacy, it's hard to tell that young Flynn is CGI, though it is noticeable.
But if he's happy spending all that time and money and re-takes trying to make effects on the screen without fucking it all up and having to restart, then so be it. He'll be the only one salty as fuck when future movies come out that do effects and facial modifications 10x better than his blood bags and makeup.
>>282474463 Because with each iteration of console, they continue to say fuck you every gen to 3rd parties.
N64 >carts that are expensive as fuck to make and don't have any benefits other than load times, can't hold more than 32MB >3 hand controller
Gamecube >retarded C stick for 2nd analog, with notched edges like the N64 instead of a clean circle >miniDVDs >no online play
Wii >released halfway through the next-gen at the time with previous-gen hardware, marketed as "next-gen" >waggle waggle controllers >barely any storage space at all >regular DVDs, not dual layer >classic controller STILL has notched edge analog sticks with heavy resistance, making it almost impossible to aim in games that need it
WiiU >marketed as next-gen halfway into the actual next-gen with previous-gen hardware again >still barely any storage space >kept the waggle waggle, and REMOVED analog triggers on the pro controller, killing any possibility of racing sims >tablet controller that nobody asked for
