    That game is sick (in two ways). I'm really looking forward to this... though PS2 and Wii seem strange choices.

    Manhunt 2 - Why Wii?

    So as many of you know Manhunt 2 was recently announced to be released on the Wii this summer, along with versions for the PS2 and the PSP. Rather than pose this question on threads that are mainly filled with people talking about how "awesome Manhunt 1 was" I wanted to start a discussion specifically about Rockstars decision to market this game on the Wii.

    Manhunt had to be the most gruesome and disturbingly violent game I have ever seen, and is obviously geared towards adult gamers (the trailer on IGN even has an age restriction). What makes Rockstar think it will succeed on a system that is mainly marketed towards the non-hardcore crowd and those who have never played video games before?

    Of course, this could signal the start of a line of games to attract the hardcore gamers to the Wii, but I have a feeling that its gonna look pretty ridiculous on the shelf at EB sandwiched between Cooking Mama and Mario Party 8.

    Thoughts?

    I personally think that the wii should have a broad range of games. The possibilities of the wii controls shouldnt be limited to games that are safe for everyone to play. I say the more games the better.

    this could mean a chance for some sort of GTA game to be released. its a nice dream, hopefully it comes true though.

    how is it gonna look ridiclous. It didn't look to ridiclous on ps2 with the original switched between klonoa 2 ,and sly cooper now did it. I'm glad nintendo is broadening their game selection. i prefer to play games on a nintendo console when i can ( i guess its because i grew up with nintendo).

    Also, its not going to look so ridiclous when Wii has plenty of mature games ,or more mature like games coming to it (or already released) for example

    Splinter Cell Double Agent
    Red Steel
    Far Cry Vengance
    Disaster Day of Crisis
    Resident Evil UC
    Metroid Prime 3
    Call of Duty 3
    Godfather Black Hand Edition
    Driver: PL
    Scarface
    Medal of Honor Vanguard
    Blazing Angels
    Brothers in Arms

    Therefore it wouldn't look so out of place. This just shows the great wall between nintendo ,and mature game publishers are finally starting to come down.

    The Wii needs a diverse range of games. Admittedly I never liked Manhunt much (I didn't like the gameplay and controls), but I would hate to see the sequel excluded from the Wii just for its violent content.

    Remember: if you don't like violent games, just don't buy them!

    well there have been sold more than 4 million Wiis, and not all are owned by kids

    games are easier to produce for the wii and cheaper

    so y not make games for the wii?

    its just a logical assumption: he who sells, will get support

    So the wii is not for the hardcore gamer? and for those who have never played video games before?

    that is somewhat the goal of the wii, to reach to people who have never played before, but please, please, dont say im NOT a hardcore gamer. Thanks.
    Also, what makes you think people who may have never played a game before wouldnt want to play a game like manhunt? Do you really have to be hardcore to play/enjoy a certain game?
