Would you expect him to say anything else? How about we get some interviews with the 3rd parties themselves and ask them point blank how they feel about their software sales on the Wii.

Well besides Capcom and Ubisoft they only have themselves to blame

Games like Nights and No More Heroes have bombed, so I can see some sources of discontent. But if the developer of Cruisin USA complains about sales, they need to be slapped.

NiGHTS has only just been released. No, it isn't selling well, but likely because it's pretty much the same old game, and people aren't interested. The original NiGHTS was a breath of fresh air. This one, while a good game, is just a sequel with the Wii-mote.

As for No More Heroes... I don't blame Japan at all for rejecting a hardcore game that's been watered down to the point of no blood. Here in America, it will probably do decent. Had the same game been released in Japan, the same would probably be true.

3rd party developers have to stop shooting themselves in the foot.

I would think that because 3rd-parties don't have to sell as many copies of Wii games in order to turn a profit, their games don't have to sell as much on the Wii in order for them to be content.

They seem pretty content releasing garbage and making a quick buck on the console.

you want to make money?

release on 360/ps3.

well ok not so much ps3, but its getting there.

The PS3 currently has an attach rate of 4, the Wii 3.44. Extrapolate that to consoles sold and Wii games are outselling PS3 games by slightly over 2-to-1. That also includes first party sales, but at least according to VGChartz the Wii still has more million+ 3rd party sellers as well.

Sorry, I still think the Wii is retarted.
