Yes there's killer franchises but the variety is completely different than the Wii with 6 mario games and 9 Wii-Mote action games in the top 20...
You aren't missing anything, that is the correct conclusion. All I'm doing is pointing out that it's the amount of sales that Nintendo achieves on their consoles that third parties see, third parties then attempt to achieve and then third parties get angry (or stop making games) when they do not reach. Top 20 is kind of arbitrary, even if you were to expand it to a top 50, Nintendo would largely be dominant on the Wii, while I think Sony and Microsoft (just by a glance, math may be off) will have almost all of the big publishers in the top 50, and possibly even some lesser ones.
