Forums - Nintendo Discussion - PS2 is the wii's biggest enemy, and wii is the PS2 biggest helper...

3rd party games that were built up from the ground for the Wii sold much better than ports of PS2 games so far. I don't think it's smart for 3rd parties to have the PS2 being the lead platform for their Wii games. It didn't lead to good sales in the short term and will most likely lead to even worse sales if they keep doing this.

The 3rd parties who won't change their cash in strategy on the Wii will get left behind while the 3rd parties who make original Wii games will turn in the profits.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

I don't think that they will ensure domination by any means, but at the same time, they are better than the fluff that the PS3 has been making during the first 6 months of it existence. What I am trying to look for instead of big extreme things like "domination" and "supremacy" and all that is a trend. Are things doing better or worse in XX and YY areas? And why?

And, objectively speaking, judging by the amount of press that these titles have been given, whether or not they will judge to be 9 or 10 rated games, they will do better than the early PS3 games. So I see a positive trend for the PS3.



If the Wii's biggest problem is that it's getting port versions of PS2 games, wouldn't the ever expanding Wii userbase eventually lead to those same types of games being focused on the Wii first?

Serves me right for challenging his sales predictions!

Bet with dsisister44: Red Steel 2 will sell 1 million within it's first 365 days of sales.

^ Yeah, OK, like you said that Lair, WH, and HS would ensure dominatiob but they're mediocre.

Soriku stop talking $hit, WH isnt mediocore, its an online game. WHich is getting bad reviews because its only online. Heavenly sword is NOT a mediocore game. Lair might be I dont know yet.

 What I meant was that Right now it seems like the Wii version is the afterthought to the PS2 version. But I have a feeling that won't last long. Manhunt 2 for instance seems to have the most focus on the Wii version. And at the incredibly high rate at which the Wii is selling, it won't be long before it becomes the console that devs base their Wii/PS2 games on.

 

As for the PS3, it may never get over the same problem that it has with 360/PS3 games. the larger Userbase of the 360, and continued competitive sales might keep most dev's thinking 360 first.

What are the games that are being ported to the wii from the PS2?

Doesn't it make sense to make them for the wii and then port down to the Ps2?

Like Manhunt and boogie...



I'm not worried at all. Zack & Wiki and Dewy's Adventure are almost out. They're both 80-90% titles that I'm quite excited about and wouldn't be possible on the PS2.

@lep-j What are those "huge RPGs as we speak"? Persona 3? That's ONE. PS2 WILL die eventually. Next year or 09.

 

 dot.hack vol 1-3

Growlanser

Odin sphere

Wild arms 5

shinning force exe

and more just cant find them. Persona 3 is another one. Most of those games have a 4.5-5/5 with custumer reviews in gamestop.


.Hack - been out

Growlanser VI - Not huge in the least

Odin Sphere - been out and not huge

Wild Arms 5 - Better, but still not "huge"

Shining Force EXA - Came out in the beginning of the year

What are you smoking?

 I can't help but think Dewy's Adventure really isn't going to live up to a lot of peoples expectations.
