I have loved the Wii for a variety of reasons. It was innovative when it drastically changed the controller. Sony even copied the Wiimote to an extent. Part of the reason I bought the console was because of the Mario franchise, and partly because they seemed to be the lead in getting games, and sometimes exclusive games. Why have people slowed down making games for the Wii? Is it getting too old? Is Nintendo too hard to come to an agreement with? I don't believe it is because of the Wii U.
