Even with the Wii's phenomenal success in America, Nintendo has no plans to ramp up video game development here, says senior vice president George Harrison.
With all that money Nintendo is making should increase development of video games. And they don't have to be the type of games for the hardcore market that involves a lot of killing. They can be wacky, weird games like Beautiful Katamari.
Boooooo Nintendo...boooooo. As much as I love Zelda/Mario/etc series games, Nintendo should make more than 1-2 new IPs per system.
at least the others are doing something new......
the wii will stay the wii, and I wonder if it will fall behind or end up doing something different than mario or wii sports.....
I know it's early and no one can find a Wii as it is now but I wonder what down the road the future will hold for Nintendo? A Wii 2? Or what, I don't think they will ever go back to a N64 or Gamecube system again...
they don't go back, they just take it along with their future plans.
Wii still has the structure of the previous consoles. just like the Ps3 and 360 have the structure of their previous consoles.
( controller ports, Disk system, etc.etc.)
i think they are doing things right..no rush the games are coming and it will only pick up...people fail to realize that the wii has been on the market a year as of this month
Did u notice that the Nintendo game sell even more here that Japan? Why not give it the chance to produce a few IP over here natural to the western side of the world. OH, I know cuz Japan hate American products to begin with it and never buy up anything create it for US or Europe maybe. That's my personal opinion here :oP
Somewhat of a surprise to me considering the amazing job Retro did w/ Metroid Prime 3.
That is a wise decision. Nintendo Wii has no match to the processing power of Xbox 360 or PS3. It will simply get smashed down to its molecular size.
This is specifically about software.
I think Nintendo is the only company that doesn't want to please the users. Only itself. I was a huge fan all the way up to the N64. Then I realized that I was tired of delays, no new IPs, and release schedules that put only like one quality game per year. Now I have the Wii and I don't see much changing.
