Sega Backpedals on the Wii Hate

"SEGA has fully supported the Wii since day one and we continue to do so - it's no secret that we are close partners. Nintendo has done a masterful job of selling its vision and expanding the market. That said, it's a shared responsibility and opportunity for the whole industry to take advantage of the possibilities of the Wii. If we don't realize its true potential, we will have missed a great opportunity to expand creatively and that is what I was cautioning against in the Reuters interview. I'm not just putting the responsibility of innovation on Nintendo. It's on SEGA and all the publishers and developers as well to carry that flag."

I had a feeling this would happen and i wasn't surprised when i found and tipped the story!

I roffled my waffles.

Anyway, I still think the Wii is a fad, as SEGA said. Seriously, is there anyone reading this site, or kotaku, or joystiq, IGN, Gamespot, gamesradar, EGM, gamepro, and so on really excited for Wii games, at least more than they are for Xbox 360 or PS3 games? Unless they're kids, sole Wii owners, don't know anything about next-gen consoles, or are part of Nintendo's "expanded market", I doubt it. I know I mentioned too many people, but I bet hardcore gamers combined buy almost as many games as these guys combined. Seriously, Nintendo shouldn't forget that hardcore gamers buy at least 20 games per generation for their consoles.

I'm a "sole Wii owner" because what I have read about the 360 leads me to believe that it has some rather serious hardware/reliability issues & quite frankly the PS3 is just too expensive to peak my curiousity. MS & Sony may eventually address the reasons that keep me from caring that they're even in the console race, but in the meantime I will be enjoying my growing library of Wii games, 37 as of tonight's stop at Best Buy.

dude 20 games per gen???? I had over 75 games for my Sega Saturn, over 50 for my dreamcast, PS1 well over 40, PS2 I have about 70 and I already have 40 games for my 360.

True I only have 5 games for my Wii, and 3 games for my PS3 but..

hardcore gamers buy way more than 20 games a console...

normal people who are not gamers but buy for kids or teens who don't have a boatload of money... NORMAL people... buy more than 20 also i should think across 1 5 year lifespan that is only 4 games per year.

I currently have 10 Wii games. I would have more but I traded in on more Wii games.

Atari 2600 54 games, Mega Drive 45 games, NES 56 games, Super Famicom 57 games, PC Engine 103 games, Jaguar 18 games, 3DO 15 games, PSX 34 games, PS2 24 games, Xbox 8 games, and GC 24 games.

I miss my PC Engine!

I don't have the money to afford that many games but I still class myself as a hardcore gamer.
