Gamer.Blorge aka Tech.Blorge, citing an unnamed "inside source at a major games development company," claims that "developers" regard the Wii as just a "party toy" and a way of making "easy money", and that "(there'll) be a lot of titles developed for the Wii, but nothing that really stands out."
According to Gamer.Blorge's anonymous source, here's how the next-generation console war would pan out:
* Wii – will be a fun multi-player (offline) party mode type games, decent graphics, cool game play, but limited success. Everyone will pretty much own a Wii, much like they own board games
* Xbox 360 – some serious realistic games, but mostly arcade shooters like Halo, and racing games like Forza, lots of online multi-player games
* PS3 – some arcade games, but more physics oriented games, with an emphasis in intense realism in gaming, a lot of mulitplayer games, and a lot of cross platforming with PlayStation Portable and other Sony products.
