Its their own fault they created this market that doesn’t trust them by putting out bad games, ports, and spinoffs.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again
I wanted a new Resident Evil in the same style as Resident Evil 4, I wanted a new Soul Calibur, Castlevania ECT. Instead we got spinoffs because they treat Wii owners like they are retarded so they reap what they sow.
They didn’t make a market on Wii so its not there for their titles. Resident Evil 4 which was a port mind you did well so there was little excuse. Even Red Steel wasn’t a good game but it sold which shows that there was a market for third party titles and the third parties fumbled.
Most efforts were a joke and so are the sales. They went for quick cash in’s and paid for it. Look at something like Crystal Bearers Vs XIII and you can’t tell me you expect Crystal Bearers to do nearly as good its a Final Fantasy Spin off series and people can tell especially when you are throwing out more marketing for XIII. This is like Saying Mario is Missing should have been amazing because it had Mario which is way more iconic than anything a third party could have.
The best place to get third party titles is the 360 only exclusives on Wii are worth anything. This is what third parties have molded into our minds and its exactly what they got. Again having a spin off even if it is exclusive is just as bad in fact sometimes worse because I’d actually give a shit for Final Fantasy XIII, Super Street Fighter VI, ect on wii. Its funny that they blame the DS also when its clear that titles do sell on DS what the excuse there?
Ubisoft has 2 franchises I give a shit for on Wii and they are No More Heroes which is going to show up on Wii 2 or possibly not get another sequel and Red Steel which we’ll see about Red Steel 2.
