Is Wii the best console for third party 'core' titles?

It seems that in the last year and a half, third party Wii developers have been complaining more and more about how the Wii has caused their games to fail, and subsequently lose money. Is this true? Well, developers have definitely lost money, but I don't believe it's the fault of the Wii, and the reason is simple: People are making comparisons that take average-reviewed niche games and compare them with critically acclaimed mainstream games... (Bayonetta, Brothers In Arms Hell's Highway, Call of Duty: World at War, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Dark Void, Killer 7, Muramasa: The Demon Blade, No More Heroes, PS3, Sega's Mad World, The Conduit, TimeShift, Wii, Xbox 360)

They should have just left it at multiplats that are on all three systems. Who knows how much cherrypicking went on?

Notice how all the Wii games listed are games that received tons of hype for being core games (core game on Wii? ZOMG!), whereas all the PS360 games he listed are super-generic compared to the bestselling third party games. The only fair comparison was World at War.

Oh, you can sure say that he was just comparing games that had equal metascores- but the difference is that an 80% game on Wii really stands out from all the shovelware; whereas an 80% game on PS360 is usually overshadowed because of the constant barrage of good games coming out for the HD consoles. So obviously the Wii game is going to stand out as the must buy, whereas the PS360 game is going to seem not-so-special compared to what else is available.

Oh, and he's using VGChartz.
