Capcom's Christian Svensson has stated that the company "supports all systems appropriately" and that they have nothing against the Wii and DS.
"or PS3, it's just that M$ money it's too sweet!"
Capcom (Z&W apart as I can't count Okami or RE4 seeing as they're just ports)isn't giving Wii owners very much at all. DC is just more on rails sub stadard UC2 fayre, DR:CTYD is really bad and MH3 is gonna be pay to play over a network that hasn't even been good with Nintys own games so far. Making remakes of old RE games is a big insult to Wii owners when the PS360 gets RE5. DS gets support but Wii certainly doesn't from Capcom. Tbh, I'm not really sure how they have the front to say the kind of rubbish they've tried to sell on the Wii is support of any kind of quality when other platforms get the far better stuff.
I'd invite you to take it up personally to Christian Svensson. He's on the Capcom Unity boards and they have a section specifically aimed toward asking the staff questions.
if you want the "real" games from capcom then buy a second system. If you don't want to then stop whining. What capcom gives the wii if fine for me, me personally im looking forward to playing 'Darkside Chronicles.' Owning 1 system this generation is stupid.
Blame Nintendo for completely gimping the Wii, not Capcom. Its just business. Capcom can either develop for the PS3, 360 and PC in one development cycle or they can develop for the PS2 and Wii (or just wii) in the same cycle. If the Wii had enough juice to stay in the same pack as the other two systems you can bet your ass Capcom would have released RE5 on all three. Would RE 5 have shipped 4 million copies in the first week on Wii alone? Highly unlikely.
cr, No matter the hardware, you still expect developers to bring something full of quality to the table. On top of that they already have tons of engines lying around, they could either rebuild them for the Wii or just expand on them. Its not nintendo's fault, even kojima says so(and we all know how many of you see him as god). Its developers losing touch with their standards. " Would RE 5 have shipped 4 million copies in the first week on Wii alone? Highly unlikely. " Perhaps not, but hell it would have played way better. If developers started making good games from the start non of you would have been complaining.
@ crck How did Nintendo gimp the Wii? Are you saying the Wii is as powerful as a PS2?? Complete b##lsh#t, buddy! Here is something. Anyone who clicks disagree is someone who shouldn't even be in the Gamer Zone, or the Wii section for that matter. Cold Facts: http://revoeyes.blogspot.co...
Is Nintendo's phrase for DLC. See "My Life as a King" if you don't believe me. As far as I know, this phrase does not mean a subscription fee for internet play. If so, that is not going to go over well.
Stop BSing and give Wii owners more games like Z&W;Tatsunoko vs. Capcom and less crap ala ports and pointless rail shooters.
While it's sad for Wii-only owners not to have fresh games from Capcom, what do you expect. Mature Wii games like Madworld and House of the Dead Overkill sold poorly (compared to the quality of the games), while the same games would have most likely sold more on the PS3 or the X360 alone. 3rd party developpers are still struggling at making a game that would be both a financial success and a critically acclaimed title. So why would Capcom put cash on making games for the Wii, if the chances of making a profit out of it are lower than on the 360/PS3. And since Capcom has decided to give more support to the PC, they can make 1 game for 3 platforms, while making a game for the Wii, only gives them the opportunity to sell it on one platform. If you want Capcom to give you games on the Wii, buy the good wii games, don'T let Madworld and NMH sit on the store shelves (if you don'T already have them of course..) As for the DS, I will only say that the PSP aint getting much love either.
Wii 3rd party games outold 3rd party games of 360 and PS3 in '98. That's a fact. Moreover, video games typically on the Wii don't have big openings but tend to have "long legs" in terms of sales. For example, the most recent Call of Duty on Wii had very small first week sales but it has now sold over 1 million copies. The same thing can be said about Resident Evil 4 Wii Edition.
Yeah, I remember seeing that headline about Wii 3rd party outselling 3rd party on PS3/360, but how many titles have we seen on the Wii? If you have 100 titles released and a total of 1000 copies sold on one console, but you have 50 titles and 900 copies sold on another platform, it still means that your 50 titles made more money per title. As for CoD, having 1 million copies sold is nice, however, the sales on PS3/360 are siginificantly higher, on about the same install base (PS3+360). While I don't have the numbers for the 3rd party titles sold on Wii, I assume, correct me if I'm wrong, that they outperformed the PS3/360 by having much more titles out rather than having fewer titles selling better. And you also have to take in consideration the titles that sold the most, were they casual titles based on original IPs, casual titles based on established franchise, so-called hardcore titles based on new IPs, hardcoe titles based on established franchises or games based on non-gaming IPs, like Hannah Montana, High School musical or similar stuff aimed at naive kids with unsuspecting parents. Capcom has mostly been aiming at the hardcore market, no point making an hardcore game on the Wii if what sell are casual games and hannah montana games. While I like the Wii, when I go to my EBgames/Wal-Mart/Futureshop, they usually have games like Madworld and NMH in the backstore while the sucky games are on the shelves and selling like crazy.
" Wii games don't sell" So that presentation pretty much showed you wrong and yet people keep saying it.
@ STK026 MadWorld currently sold 70,000 copies. That is not alot now, but do you remember Wii owners getting very hyped. Wii games don't sell 2 million in just a day. SSBB only sold 140,000 on its first day. Did it fail, no. No it has sold 8 million. MadWorld will hit at least 500k by July, I bet you. I haven't even bought it yet. One, because I don't have the money, and 2 because my Wii broke down and I have to send it for factory repairs (something with the disc reader). DUH!!!!!!!!!
The thing about 3rd party games that people seem to look over is that there are now 75 million sellers in the US alone. Yes Wii had about 70 more games than 360. Doesnt change the fact that they are quickly catching up to the 360 in million sellers. A console we ALL know sells a ton of games. Publishers/Developers do not need 4 million in sales on the Wii to make money. Most probably only need 500k to see a decent return. Development costs are a lot lower on the Wii after all. I just do not see why people have to keep trying to to spin this into something bad. IS it really Wii owners faults that they go out looking for quality games and end up buying something less? I think its more the developers fault for not offering the quality to begin with. If SF4,RE5, Madworld, HOTD, had all come out on the Wii this year, I think a lot less copies of Wii fit/Lego Indiana would have been sold, but people are buying what they have access to. Also why compare an onrails shooter and a black and white new IP to established franchises that always get high sales. Wouldnt it be far to compare them to games that are similar on the other consoles? THe only light gun game out was on PS3 and I dont think it hit 500k in sales. I cant think of any games that are in black and white and similar to Madworld to compare it to.
And seeing how much you've supported each thus far, you have nothing for the Wii and DS either
If they truly support the Wii, they will make Viewtiful Joe 3, Resident Evil 5, stop making light-gun games, will release Tatsunoko vs. Capcom, Monster Hunter 3 in the states, and will make Marvel vs. Capcom 3 on the Wii. I would say their support right now is OK.
I'm liking your responses, mrnintendo96. That read on the Wii's strengths was also a good find. here..have a bubble.
@Seferoth75 "Yeah, I remember seeing that headline about Wii 3rd party outselling 3rd party on PS3/360, but how many titles have we seen on the Wii?

Well, if that is the case then that makes the Wii a more viable platform to invest in than the HD twins. It's great for Wii owners. "As for CoD, having 1 million copies sold is nice, however, the sales on PS3/360 are siginificantly higher, on about the same install base (PS3+360)." True, but with the much less lower development cost on the Wii they probably made as much or even more in profit on the Wii than on the HD twins. Moreover, the latest COD game was the only one they actually put a lot of effort in so I wouldn't be surprised a lot of Wii owners would be hesitant to buy it. "And you also have to take in consideration the titles that sold the most, were they casual titles based on original IPs, casual titles based on established franchise, so-called hardcore titles based on new IPs, hardcoe titles based on established franchises or games based on non-gaming IPs, like Hannah Montana, High School musical or similar stuff aimed at naive kids with unsuspecting parents." Maybe they actually enjoy playing games like that instead of games that involve killing and hookers. Sorry, but the gaming world doesn't revolve around your narrow gaming taste. "Capcom has mostly been aiming at the hardcore market, no point making an hardcore game on the Wii if what sell are casual games and hannah montana games." Yeah, because Resident Evil 4 UC and Resident Evil 4 didn't sell over a million copies *sarcasm*. And guaranteed Monster Hunter 3 is going to shake up the Japanese economy.
"Yeah, because Resident Evil 4 UC and Resident Evil 4 didn't sell over a million copies *sarcasm*. And guaranteed Monster Hunter 3 is going to shake up the Japanese economy." So, why should capcom give more to Wii owners than what they are already giving them? MH is one of the biggest selling franchise in Japan, is that not enough support for the Wii for now? Also, if UC sold so well (which I believe), why not make another one (like they'Re doing)? What's wrong with Capcom's current support for the Wii?
STK06 if the Capcom Wii library is so geat how many of those games do you own? Oh Zero, so you really have no right defending them then do you? Maybe we want AAA quality games of the same caliber other platforms get. Maybe because we were told by Capcom if we bought all their ports, the AAA support would come.
This is coming from capcom USA not japan. Japan gave us mega man 9 the USA maybe translated it. The USA branch is not making a single game I want. Capcom Japan made TvsC and monsterhunter. All the USA branch can do is bionic commando remakes and a 3d version which still is not out. I'm disappointed in those guys but hey how are they suppose to live up to the legends in japan? I'm fine with capcom USA making HD games since it will give them a chance to get better. I'm not sure why he is even saying this stuff? I mean where is TvsC at? People still have to import it. Right now i only want to hear from japan. That's where the big things are happening.
developed for Wii or port to Wii = crappy even if pretty good game it become crappy.
If you want to see a really bad Wii developer/publisher, look at Activision. The only games that are good on the Wii from them are the Call of Duty games and Guitar Hero.
