ds and gba games on WII u instead of 3ds

hey everyone, been a long time hasn't it? Sorry been busy with work, life, STEAM, 3ds, and my personal ps3 /its horde of games.

But that's not what I wanted to talk about, instead I wanted to get your opinions on whats going on with the WII U game system. Specifically, that gba and ds games will be on its E-shop. While I do understand gba games have been a MUCH requested add on for nintendo's E shop, I don't quite get why they would only be added to the WII U. I have been looking at it alot lately and, just dont see much good about it. So far I have seen only two, maybe 3 games id get on wii U, and two of them are not even out yet. then on the other side of the spectrum you got the epicly successful 3ds series. Sure it took a few years, but now check it out! It has way more going for it these days. I mean it went from a system almost no one wanted to us having 3 of them in our home now!

In the end it just seems wrong that the only BIG draw the NExt gen nintendo system has, is a set of much older hand held games.... which brings me to my other thought...
WHY the WII U? Games like Kirby and the amazing mirror are made to be handheld and multiplayer, so why put it on a system that wont support the multiplayer mode? MANY gba and DS games only started being fun when you had more people around you [like the aforementioned kirby and the Four swords Zelda game].
I understand totally the need to get people to buy the new system, and the addition of gba and ds DLC games is a great choice, but why not put them on the 3ds too? At least the multiplayer ones anyway.


Anyway, while it alll seems really stupid to me [partially because the 3ds smash bros will highlight PORTABLE games and wii U game focusing on Consoles, when the E shops seem to be flipped around. That and portable games should always be portable.] I know alot of you are way smarter than me in some places, and well...
What do you all think about nintendo's latest actions?

[to be fair I am still a bit upset about my ds games loosing multiplayer. I never got to get the extras for a Yugioh game I have, and I was having fun with the pokemon games. So I might be being a bit harsh... my bad.]

Re: ds and gba games on WII u instead of 3ds

I think it was a poor attempt by Nintendo to make people have more incentive towards buying a WiiU.

Re: ds and gba games on WII u instead of 3ds

Nintendo has been operating in WTF?!? mode since the end of 2010.

The Nintendo WFC closure is out of their hands though. The service is hosted on Gamespy, and that company is killing the service for everybody on May 31.

Re: ds and gba games on WII u instead of 3ds

100% agree that the GBA games should be on the 3DS.

I can kinda understand the DS games though as the 3DS can play DS carts.
