All I want from codemasters is Micro Machines on the VC.
I love you sig and avatar.
As for the discussion, Codemasters has, in my experience, made games which aren't very, how would one say, good.
If they're basing potential Wii sales off of the performance of "Heatseeker", then I think I know why they're outlook is negative.
I think devs are afraid of developing on Nintendo hardware because they have expectations placed upon their software because gamers expect higher levels of quality.
But I agree with what was said earlier: Capcom, Konami, etc. seemed to have excellent sales back in the NES/SNES days where Nintendo was decidedly the market leader. I think this really boils down to lazy devs who don't want to have to put as much effort into their games.
As fanboyish as it sounds, if these devs spent less time complaining and more time polishing their games, they'll probably see better sales on the Wii.
"I mean, c'mon, Viva Pinata, a game with massive marketing, didn't sell worth a damn to the "sophisticated" 360 audience, despite near-universal praise--is that a sign that 360 owners are a bunch of casual ignoramuses that can't get their heads around a 'gardening' sim? Of course not. So let's please stop trying to micro-analyze one game out of hundreds and using it as the poster child for why good, non-1st party, games can't sell on Wii. (Everyone frequenting this site knows this is nonsense, and yet some of you just can't let it go because it's the only scab you have left to pick at after all your other "Wii will phail1!!1" straw men arguments have been put to the torch.)" - exindguy on Boom Blocks
