    Nintendo Responds To Third Party Concern

    'We believe the situation will change,' says Japanese giant

    Nintendo has responded to worries that only first party titles are selling on the Wii, saying that it believes the situation is only temporary.

    According to the company's third-quarter report meeting transcription, translated by Develop, the problem is simply one of the Wii still being a young system - and that, as such, Nintendo's internal teams currently have an significant advantage.

    "When we develop new hardware at Nintendo, we do so as a collaboration between the hardware development teams and the software development teams. Our software sales percentage is currently high because our internal teams teams know the Wii's special characteristics best, and they started development quite a bit before the Wii's release

    However, we believe that eventually that will change," said the firm.

    "If you look at the data for our third quarter you'll see that, out of the 14 Wii titles that shipped over a million units, 11 of those were our titles. However, if you look at the 50 titles that shipped over a million units on DS, only 28 of those are ours.

    "We identified the same thing in the DS' first period, and the situation continues to change little by little. For the Wii too, we believe that as time passes, the proportion of high-selling titles that come from our licensees will increase."

    that's pretty much what we have been saying isn't. 3rd parties are behind the learning curve but sooner or later they will pick it up. And with the release of NMH and Sadness on the way I think it is going to get better, just will take some time.

    Donkey Kong is Nintendo 1st party...lol has been always will be...

    Zack and Wiki is awsome but i think there sales problems is the fact they are messing on nintendos turf... you cant knock out the king at his own style games on his own console... just wont happen

    3rd party for sure will catch up in sales specially when making there own nitch of games that nintendo doesn't really mess with like FPS,Strategy,Sports and the like..

    Sorry your right should have worded it better.
    Donkey Kong is a Nintendo exclusive

    Rare was a 2nd party developer of DK for Nintendo making it specifically for Ninendo... The Donkey Kong name has always been Nintendo's to do with what they please.

    That's what I thought, i just had to add that because DKC is the best Donkey Kong game ever released IMO.
