RUMOR - Activision upset with Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 sales, says ports don't sell, no publisher enthusiasm (UPDATE)

GN Version 4.0
UPDATE - This story turned out to be completely false. We can go back to being grumpy about other Wii U-related items!

This information come from an indie dev that supposedly got the inside scoop at D.I.C.E....

“Activision didn’t expect much from Wii U sales of Black Ops 2, but they sure didn’t expect it to be that abysmal. Activision gave Wii U owners the best version of Blops 2 with Off TV features, and Nintendo fans didn’t support it. It’s easy for Nintendo fans to trash publishers for not giving them ports, but publishers have wisened up. They realize Nintendo fans are all talk. Nintendo fans are vocal with their mouths, but when it’s time to open their wallets, they’ll spend that $60 on New Super Mario Bros instead.”

He went on to talk about publisher interest in general...

“There’s just no enthusiasm for it. The only reason publishers are still going to bring games to Wii U is because they don’t want to damage their relationship with Nintendo.”

Yep, those publishers and devs have us fans all figured out. Call of Duty with no DLC support, Mass Effect 3 while the entire trilogy goes to other systems (not to mention no DLC either). How about we see how Rayman does before we say Nintendo fans don't want ports/multiplatform games?
