    Wii in danger of repeating the Gamecube?

    Ok so we have had the great titles Metroid 3 , Resi evil 4 , Zelda and Mario Galaxy ( Which is the best game I have ever laid my hands on btw )

    Where are Nintendo going to go from here?

    I know Smash bros , mario kart, Animal crossing , Disaster , Project O , are all titles which will get my interest.

    But don't you feel the Wii needs to start getting some decent Third Party support? maybe they should use the money they are making from all these sales and get a Bungee exclusive or a unreal type game

    I'm sick of seeing rushed titles like Red steel , Soul Caliber legends and crappy film cash in's

    Nintendo should really step up to mark and get some decent third party developers behind em!

    I've noticed that there are several companies releasing really low budget games. There was one I saw at Best Buy the other day that was like a 3D Elevator Action or something. Spy Games: Elevator Mission. Along with a bunch of unnecessary sports games that didn't look like they improved on Wii Sports enough to even warrant them even being made.

    Also, we're getting ports of PC adventure games such as Agatha Christie: And Then There Were None. I think there's going to be a bigger problem with the Wii than with the Gamecube. I think it's going to be over saturated with some really bad 3rd party games because from what I've heard it's easier to develop for than the PS3.

    Nintendo also has no quality standards for games. if a dev has a crap title like chicken shoot they just OK it. if you notice the "nintendo seal of quality" has become the "nintendo seal". someone will step up and do some things but for the most part i think itll be crap. time splitters 4, anyone??

    even ubisoft said assassins creed wouldnt be on wii because its not casual enough. thats the biggest insult ive ever gotten as a gamer. there are hXc gamers who have wiis. 3rd parties need to man up and put time into their wii games before i go and...buy 360!

    Ya it's definately repeating the Gamecube. It's out-sold the Gamecube everywhere in just shy of a year.

    Total flop. :rofl

    thats the problem i had, everybody is saying "the wii is gonna have some sweet games coming out" but i dont see any? ive been hearing that since i bought my wii seven or eight months ago. there was a couple good games, resident evil 4 among them wich is just a port, much like alot of the other games.

    derp! look harder! GH3, zak and wiki, mario galaxy?!

    the thing i like to say is, are you really going to play like 10 awesome games before your next anticipated title? Nintendos just being smart. they know gamers wont actually get through 15 triple A titles before our next anticipated release, so they let 3rd party devs make crap so that we dont get games we buy and never play.

    hey im with u also i am so tired of waiting myself...i even went out and got a ps3 when the price dropped, and even been playin my ps2 more...see the problem a lot of third party people are having is that the dont wanna touch the wii cuz of low graphics it displays...now dont come here and flame cuz i said that but its TRUE! Im hoping with Unreal Enigine 3 signing on that they will bring life to this system...cuz honestly these kiddie games arent gonna last forever.

    In my honest opinion, I think Nintendo should have sit downs with EA, Activision, Ubisoft, and whomever else is a prominant 3rd party publisher. In this sit down they should basically say, "Stop making s#!%%y games on our system." Thing is I understand it's easy to develop for and it has a mass appeal but companies are using this info wrong. Instead of quality for the masses we are getting leftover garbage for the masses. The Wii is more powerful than given credit but developers see that their crappy game runs on the system and puts it out without any further advancements. It's not the Wii at all that's crappy, it's the developers.

    ok here is a article i found of 3rd party people saying why they DONT want any part of the wii

    Kikizo: You've been able to squeeze Unreal Engine 2 onto PSP previously; with that in mind is there any potential to get some form of Unreal Engine 3 running on Wii at some point? Because after all, commercially it has to be worth it now right?

    Rein: It wasn't us, it was Ubisoft! [laughs] You know, actually, commercially, it's probably not worth it to be honest. And I don't mean that as anything against the Wii, but the Wii is an improved evolution of the GameCube - I mean it's hardware compatible with the GameCube! So if you're going to make a game for the Wii you're just going to use whatever tools you used on GameCube, and bring them forward and enhance them a little - that's what the Gamebryo guys are doing - and that's a fact; I just don't see a big market there to bring this big hulking memory intensive engine over to a much smaller system. I mean, I'm sure some of our licensees, just as a commercial exercise, will probably do it. I know one of our licensee who's giving it a shot; it's their own port, in the same way Ubisoft brought Unreal Engine 2 to the Wii - I mean Splinter Cell and Red Steel - Unreal Engine 2, and there's a few others... but it's just, we won't don't do it ourselves. Look, there's so many things we can do and are already doing, to improve our engine, on the platforms we're aiming it at, that going back and working on that [for Wii] just doesn't make sense. Unreal Engine 3 is a better engine today than it was a year ago when Gears of War shipped. So Unreal Tournament 3 for example pushes the PlayStation 3 harder than Gears of War did on Xbox 360. So the engine is getting optimised and we're improving it all the time; there's too much low hanging fruit that we already have on the engine side, and new improvements and things we can do to try and make an engine for the Wii - it wouldn't be smart business for us.
