No, it won't change. Developers have had plenty of time to observe the Wii and the kind of people who want it, and they're still shunning the Wii. Another good announcement today, with the upcoming Chronicles of Riddick to be on the 360 and PS3. The Wii is just too weak to attract the heavy hitters. It'll get the Nintendo games, a handful of decent multiplatform games, and a tremendous amount of totally crap shovelware.
The so called big flood of huge 3rd party games to Wii still hasn't come even though it's clear that it is selling more than the other two consoles now, anyone wonder why that is?
I mean all the new games announced are small quick cash ins that look terribly made and are really unappealing to the average video gamer.
But this will change...
...you've got to remember, almost ALL of the 3rd parties were caught with their pants down when Nintendo was showing off the Wii at the last E3. Many of them admitted to having dismissed the Wii before E3, and afterwards, having to ramp up and switch gears to start pumping out Wii games.
I agree with this to some degree. Everyday it seems like new software is being announced and there is no Wii version coming. Why no Wii version of GRAW 2, or the upcoming Riddick game? Won't be a Wii version of Command and Conquor and it just goes on from there. As a "core" gamer, it just bothers me. Granted, most of these games I wouldn't buy, but I at least want the option to pick them up without having to plunk down $400+ on a system.
In some way, I hope these companies suffer for that. There is a market for those kinds of games if they were released.
Oh, and Nintendo did not force third parties to not add online or Mii support. That is a decision third parties had to make and they decided not to go with it. Sega has a new game coming out in Japan that refutes the claim that Nintendo barred companies from adding these things. I think the game is some sort of pachinko game, but it does have online and Mii support. If third parties are not adding these things, then it's on them. To me, it just shows a lack of vision on their part. If they can't come up with better games and better ideas, then they will be left behind on the Wii. Unfortunately, not only do they lose, but we lose as well.
