    I think everyone, including Nintendo, was surprised by the Wii's success.

    So this means we're gonna get more games from EA, who I has given us Wii owners the best 3rd party games yet.

    The Wii's success seems to have caught pretty much all the third parties off guard (except maybe Ubisoft). Hopefully now we'll see some strong support, and hopefully not just more ports of 2 year old games with tacked-on Wii controls.

    I predict 2008 will have alot of hardcore wii games that will become legends of all time, just my opinion. Alot of developers are catching on!

    i agree with that statement, but my guess is late 08.

    a lot of devs were caught off guard with the wii, not just ea. i hope ea gives us some good stuff, so far its been crap.
