Nintendo has been fighting to get back 3rd party support they lost ever since the N64 days. That was back when us nintendo people were quite the elitists and said things to the effect of "eh, screw Square. we don't need final fantasy anyways." However, by comparison, the PS1 was the developer's friend. Though it had "outdated graphics" compared to the N64, it was cheaper to develop for and made more money due to higher user base and less royalty fees. Its kind of funny seeing how the pendulum is starting the swing the other way, with the Wii being cheaper and more developer friendly and with the PS-TRIPLE having high development costs.
