Legend can you be a bit less inflammatory? Lots of complaints from what you said.
I don't think I've ever seen him do much else besides troll, except when he's trolling covertly via multiple paragraphs of text to disguise his trolling as logical discourse.
As for what he said, Legend said it because every game, in his mind, would do better and BE better on the 360. If SMG was on the 360, it would be a stellar game. If SSBB was on the 360, he'd love it to pieces. If Halo 3 was on the PS3, he'd crap all over it.
NMH didn't sell in Japan? Big surprise, because NO "hardcore" games are selling in Japan right now. SMG, LoZ and even RPGs have been underperforming. The Japanese populace has moved over to handhelds and non-gaming.
After this game launches in the US/EU with Ubisoft's advertising engine behind it, THEN we'll see how it does overall.
Until then, nothing has been set and stone, except the fact that Legend is a raging troll whom I've never ONCE seen pass up an opportunity to chime in in any thread reporting even remotely bad Wii news or start threads about bad Wii news just to get a rise out of the people on the Nintendo board.
"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
