    Sega: Nintendo Should Support Mature Gamers

    According to wii.qj.net. Nintendo should get off there ass and masome mature video games.

    Eat cake, shell scum!



    Bloody Mario...

    Speaking after the news that Sega is starting to have second thoughts at attempts to target older Wii gamers, following slow sales of other publishers' software and its own mature titles, the company believes that Nintendo should be trying to widen the market with its own 18 certificate games.


    James Rebours, the CEO of Sega for France and Spain, has spoken about the lack of support from Nintendo, stating that the company has left the job of catering to mature gamers with third party publishers. He goes on to say that despite the potential to make good sales in this area, not everyone is keen on taking a risk with investment in such titles. Rebours believes that if Nintendo were to publish a mature game and back it up with a sustained television advertisement campaign, they would be able to increase the size of the market and probably make large sales. However, he thinks that Nintendo is a publisher who has mostly ignored this area, with games consistently aimed at the 3+ to 7+ age bracket.

    BEFORE ADDING ME ANYWHERE, PLEASE CONFIRM THAT WE'VE MET BEFORE/TALKED ALREADY.

    Spoiler Alert!

    So the CEO of Sega France is asking Nintendo to pay it's hard earned money to develop a "Mature" game and spend its money on advertising??

    So Nintendo should do the work for Sega?
    Because Nintendo hasn't developed a "M" game it's effecting Segas sales??

    Also Madworld's director had this to say:

    "I think MadWorld was very well received and was acknowledged for its innovative graphical style and gameplay. We would definitely be interested in making a sequel in the future."
    In 2007 I predicted Wii Fit would sell more than Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

    EVERYONE at wiichat.com disagreed with me.

    As it stands today:

    Super Smash Bros. Brawl: 9.49 Million

    Wii Fit: 35 Million

    no i think it was more of them pointing out how nintendo doesn't even bother with the mature market, not them complaining about sales.

    cause seriously, how does trhe fact nintendo ignoring the mature market affect sega's sales?

    The Article Says:
    "Speaking after the news that Sega is starting to have second thoughts at attempts to target older Wii gamers, following slow sales of other publishers' software and its own mature titles, the company believes that Nintendo should be trying to widen the market with its own 18 certificate games."

    These developers act like Nintendo owes them something. If anything they still owe Nintendo. Nintendo is doing its job with the new Zelda, Metroid, Wii Sports Resort, Wii Fit, Mario Series....

    I can understand what Sega are saying. Third parties don't want to take a risk creating a AAA mature Wii title that they would have to spend money on to advertise.

    Instead they want Nintendo to produce a heavily advertised mature title that will sell and then they can sell inferior copies based on people wanting more. It seems to have worked for some other games, i.e. Wii Sports/Carnival Games, Wii Fit/EA Active, Mario Kart/countless kart copies.

    It would help show people that there are other types of games available for the Wii other than Mario Kart, Wii Fit and NSMB though, so while it may sound lazy by third parties there is an element of sense to it.
    Wii games - SMG, Zelda TP, Mario Kart, SSBB, Wii Sports, Wii Play, Endless Ocean, Blue World, Wii Fit, Super Monkeyball, Rogue Trooper, Shaun White, NMH, NMH2, GH: WT, Aerosmith, Zack&Wiki, Okami, RE4, Force Unleashed, Clone Wars, Scarface, PES, Tenchu, Trauma Centre NB, Madworld, Rune Factory, Wii Sports Resort, Metroid Prime Trilogy, Muramasa, COD Reflex, Obscure, Silent Hill, Rabbids Go Home, NSMB, Bully, Tatsunoko vs Capcom, Red Steel 2, Monster Hunter Tri

    Caliko you are usually a smart guy so im not going to hammer you here ,but want this SEGA rep is saying is something ive been saying to my buddy for a long time.

    Which is the fact that Nintendo needs to get off their family friendly high horse & make a few of their own mature titles to show third party publishers how its done on Wii ,and to show Nintendo fans that dont usually buy the third party games what their missing.

    I think if Nintendo did their own survival horror game, fps, or twitch action game it would make the gamers who thrive on Nintendo only games something to thrist for after they get a taste of what nintendo did.

    I mean how why can't Nintendo get Retro Studios, N-Space ,and Monolith (they own part of that company dont they) to make games of this caliber.

    I mean they made a great start with Disaster ,but yet they dont bother to give it a global release.

    third party is trying (to a point) ,but Nintendo needs to step in ,and show the mass majority of the wii market who aren't hardcore gamers like us that its okay for wii to have these kind of games.

    Also lets get one thing straight. I'm not talking about Nintendo making a game with tons a blood, guts, sex ,and swearing. That DOES NOT make a mature/core game. I'm talking about games that dont have a bunch of fuzzy creatures with big eyes running around. Give us a story in a game thats Nintendo style ,but is grown up. Nintendo wants to attract all kinds of gamers well start investing in new IPs that appeal to this under privileged market on wii.
    My Wifi games (ASK ME FOR MY CODES)

    Rock Band 2,Call of Duty W@W,Mario Kart,Nights,Tetris Party,Dr.Mario,WWE Smackdown VS Raw 09,Battalion Wars 2,Mario Strikers,Smash Bros Brawl,Quantum of Solace,Medal of Honor Heroes,Excitebots,The Conduit,and Call of Duty Modern Warfare
