Ubisoft Not Counting Wii Out Just Yet.
While some developers may think the Wii has lost its novelty because the craze is over, Ubisoft isn’t among them. In an interview with IndustryGamers, Ubisoft revealed just how positive about Wii they are, and that they think that Wii still has plenty of time left. The following quote is from Ubisoft’s senior vice president of sales and marketing, Tony Key.
“Well until further notice, it’s still the most successful machine in the history of video games, the most successful home console ever. Just as recently as ten months ago, they had the biggest hardware month in the history of our industry, with 3.3 million units sold. Guess what? Christmas is coming again. I think that anybody who makes assumptions about the Wii going away quickly, or is over, is taking a big risk. Certainly, Ubisoft doesn’t believe that.”

EA Excited For 3DS
EA is really looking forward to more mainstream 3D gaming. In an investors call, EA confirmed that all of its new titles will be 3D ready, so that when the market is there, EA will be ready. EA went on to say that “3D will be a little bit more interesting next year, certainly very interesting on the 3DS which has 3D built into it.”
While there are 3D games, they aren’t as popular as some companies would like. However, the release of the 3DS next year is sure to change that.
