Some pretty unspectacular numbers for the Wii version of FIFA 09 this week... not unexpected, as pro sports games on the Wii have failed pretty severely, relative to the HD consoles, time and time again, despite the Wiis install base.
Why? Anyone have any good ideas as to why these titles keep running into the ground? They don't have "legs", contrary to popular belief (look here on VGCharts for some perspective), they just fall down.
It seems as though the Wii should appeal more, being a largely "blue ocean" demographic, in the sports genre, with which the general populace is, presumably, already well acquainted... much like gambling and party games, which have appealed to the Wii audience in record numbers.
