EDIT: this is a rant agianst EA, not the Wii for once.
That's nice and all... but there are at least 14 for the PS3 from EA. But that's not good enough for me.
a PS3 game has about 3x the dev money/time put into it. so if EA was spending as much on the Wii as the PS3, I'd say they would have close to 30Wii games comming, to have the same investment.
Also, the PS3 has 5 EA games comming june/earlier. that are announced. There's probibally more than that.
Another side note, EA is not... my favorite comany, very few games from EA 'blow me away'
A prime example is NFS on the Wii. Hands down. Worst game I ever played, due to the controlls they force.
EA does sell alot of games. A whole lot. EA typically buys a name like... "lord of the rings" and then makes a version for the GBA, PS2, X-Box, GC(sometimes), and then another diffrent version for the PC half the time.
A prime example, search the game Cars. Far from a great game... yet one of the best selling games (cross platform) 2006. The name of the game is more imporant than anything else. That's one thing EA learned. ESPECIALLY with the American audience. Americans buy games on a whim. Becaue the Cars movie was great... the game will be good too? Havent americans ever learned that if it came out as a move... keep away from the game. If it was a game... keep away from the movie? (I'm sorry, the doom3 movie was fun and all that... but it was kinda... B)
I can see a golf game useing the Wii very well... however... I'm not going near it. I hate golf, and I hate sports games just as much as I hate golf. (I dont hate sports, just golf... and sports games)
I wish there was a way to squelch posts from idiots like this who reiterate the same pointless opinion over and over again. Tiger woods is an extremely big deal. Everyone I know owns it and plays it ALOT. Yes we all know Americans can not think, I mean they make the worst products available popular first, like Windows. If you ever played the game cars, you might be surprised at how fun it actually is. Kids love the game especially, and that is who it is targeted at. I mean come on, they are not as shallow as you apparently are, and can have fun without an over the top production.
