So some of you are basically saying that you should make crappy games for wii/ds since they bring easy money? :)
No, relying only on "retarded" games will damage the bottom line of that company in the long term.
But a title like "Coocking Mama" was a pure genius ( I mean lucky ) stroke because was the right product for the right audiende in the right time.
Also I want to note you that Majesco has 2 very interesting title for Wii :
Blast Work ( inspired by an indie game ) and Major MINOR'S MAJESTIC MARCH from critically acclaimed Nanonsha.
In the end the message is that VG Industry can't only rely on big budget project for 15-25 year old male.
I really doubt that good sales for crappy games will hurt any company. Those people who will buy "cooking mamas" and other crap-titles will be buying the same shit again and again. Or were you talking about a small percentage of wii users who read gaming forums and so on? :P
Huh, blast works? Looks like crap, but then again: crap sells on wii/ds.
