While Devs are always wanting newer/faster hardware, the game companies in general don't like hardware changes because it eats into their profits while they pay people to learn the new stuff and adapt what they have. Besides, as the Wii clearly showed us, it isn't always about the graphics but it is about the gameplay, and it isn't like the Wii-U is pushing the envelope.

Also given that the world is still in somewhat of a recession, I don't think a lot of people are particularly interested in going out and buying a new $400-$600 console.
