Activision Not Happy With Call Of Duty Black Ops 2 Wii U Sales?

black_ops_2_logo

An Activision employee reportedly told Calvin Hall at this years DICE summit that the company is throughly disappointed with sales for Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 on Wii U. The employee says that Activision gave Wii U owners the definitive version of Black Ops 2 with Off TV features, and Nintendo fans quite simply didn’t support it. He went on to say that developers just aren’t enthusiastic about Nintendo’s latest home console and 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. However, he did say that Activision will continue to support the platform.

“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.”

“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.”

Update: It turns out that this story by ‘Calvin Hall’ was fabricated.

Black Ops 2 Patch Is Live, But There’s Quite A Few Problems

call_of_duty_black_ops_2_cover_art

A number of you contacted me to let me know that the patch for Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 is now live on the Wii U. However, Treyarch has confirmed this morning that there are a number of problems with the patch that have not yet been resolved. The developer says that it’s working alongside Nintendo on a resolution to the problem and hopes to know more at some point tomorrow. Some of the menu listings from Xbox 360′s Revolution DLC are also showing up in the game. Treyarch says that this is a mistake on their part, and it isn’t confirmation that the DLC is coming to Wii U.

“We are noticing some issues with the version of the patch that was posted that you guys are also reporting here on the forums.  We are working with Nintendo on a resolution to this problem and hope to know more at some point tomorrow.  I will keep you posted as I receive more information.”

“We are aware that some of the menu listings from the 360’s Revolution DLC drop are showing up in the game.  This is not a confirmation of DLC for the Wii U, just a versioning problem that we are working to address.”

“I do not want to publish the list of known fixes until I have confirmation that they are all live.  I hope to be able to do this tomorrow, but as I mentioned, this is something we are working on with Nintendo, so the timeline isn’t entirely in our hands.”

Thanks to those that sent this in.
