Some News is Good News

Here's a little lovefest I've put together from recent news.

Tatsunoko Vs. Myths

"On the topic of Tatsunoko Vs Capcom's sales-

'[Tatsunoko Vs Capcom] certainly beat the initial expectations. It didn't set any land speed records, but it was a success. And that's really saying something considering that we're talking about a game that was not only never coming out, but has a title that most people can't even pronounce.'

It's nice to hear a developer own up to the notion that when their games don't set any 'land speed' sales records on the Wii, it's not necessarily the fault of the Wii and/or its audience. Games that start with the word Tatsunoko, ultra-violent, black-and-white beat 'em ups, FPSs with no online play; no matter how great these games may be, publishers should [not] expect them to sell in the millions, not on the Wii, not on any platform."


Sega Confirms Their Success on the Wii

"Overall, Sega remains a big supporter of the Wii, Hayes stressed. 'Our general view of the Wii is that it's a platform that's done Sega particularly proud; we've been very supportive of it with the success we've had with the Mario & Sonic series, success we've had with the Sonic series, and some of the redesigned IP like House of the Dead. So the Wii remains a very important part of our mix. So you will see certainly quite a few more announcements on Wii titles that Sega will be producing and publishing,' he said."


HVS Continues to be Awesome

"There is a definitely an audience out there. We remain a Wii-exclusive title and clearly did well-enough to warrant a sequel. At the end of the day, that’s really all that I can ask for." - Josh Olson, High Voltage
