According to this nikkei article Sega, Namco-Bandai and Capcom are shifting their focus from PS3/PSP to DS/Wii (capcom's focus was the PS3??) due to low sales


BABELFISH'D

Game software major company such as バンダイナムコゲームス and Sega, relative importance of software development the SONY computer entertainment (for SCE) from is moving to Nintendo Co.. As for バンダイナムコ and Sega for Nintendo Co. which is sold in 2007 the quantity of software planning redoubling at preceding year ratio. As for SCE squeezing to the large-sized work which can anticipate hit, it advances development. As for number of shipments 3 of major companies which add カプコン for Nintendo Co. for SCE it is the prospect that it is reversed. The Nintendo Co. portable type game machine "ニンテンドー DS" and deferred type "Wii (ウィー)" vis-a-vis favorable demand, high functional machine "place t Shaun 3 of SCE (PS3)" it has been restrained. Software each company seeing the spread of the Nintendo Co. game machine, throwing the new work rapidly. On the one hand, high efficiency for PS3 of the merchandise as for the software is a tendency where production expense expands, cannot avoid becoming prudent.

It's news for Bandai/Namco. It seemed like, no matter how poorly their games sold, they weren't giving up on PSP. I'm actually kinda surprised by this.

Sega and Namco Bandai, but still the law of averages kinda favors that there will be some good stuff in there somewhere.

Capcom though ... they really don't make many bad games on any platform, gotta love them for that. They could have phoned it in with Zack & Wiki for instance, but didn't. More Capcom support for Wii would be welcome.

True, but I think everybody is hoping for a game on the level of Lost Planet or Dead Rising (in terms of polish, budget and style) for Wii, rather than a game which may be very good, but doesn't look amazingly different from the kind of things we expect.

Yeah, you can't expect a lot from namco these days and sega aren't what they used to be, but that would be true on any platform.

If they're doing it, everybody else in japan is probably doing it too. It's a sign of a general industry trend and it has to bring benefits in the end.

Whatever, when they start actually DOING some things that would be sound decisions, I'll actually start being happy.

For instance...Mega Man 9...how hard it would be to make this game on the DS, in all the classical fashion fitting such a title? ZXA is gravy, but it still is just a placeholder-continuance for what I really have wanted to see since Rockman's LAST milestone anniversary years ago!

And the fact that Sega hasn't done anything profound, such as release a new (and GOOD) Shinobi for the DS also is rather disturbing...

This was pretty much to be expected. For all their talk of wanting to support everyone evenly, the reality is they would be killing themselves in japan by supporting the two losing platforms so much.

Yeah, unless you're being money hatted by MS or Sony, or you're making a FF game, it's just not viable for Japanese devs to put Japanese games on anything other than Wii.

Well it's not surprising, but there have been a lot of reports of developers that were hesitant to back the wii or thought it was going to eventually hit a wall. There seemed to be a lot of denial in the industry.

I'm surprised that it took this long to start getting these kinds of reports.. I'll admit that I was starting to get a little worried.

Yes because the Wii is that bad. I mean those graphics, they just make your eyes bleed!

We'll see what happens at the end of this gen. I wonder who'll have a bigger game library, and something for all the Wii haters to understand. You can't build a system seller overnight.

This Wii "fad" will continue going on strong for a long time. It'll eventually start declining near the end of the gen but that's the point. By the time the next consoles come out Nintendo can build on that userbase and game library as did PS1--->PS2 and xbox--->360.

Wii is just a milestone for Nintendo trying to become the biggest player again.

Yeah because that really happened on the DS :lol

I really wish they'd make a new 2D Mario, or a new Contra, or some good Castlevania games, or a good Zelda for the DS instead of all these Brain Training games. And would it kill a developer to make an RPG for the DS? Like a Dragon Quest or a Final Fantasy, maybe?

Damn, at least give us a Mario Kart DS or something.

That is not true. I think it could very well be argued that Nintendo are derailing the disaster train of the videogame industry. They are forcefully shaking things up. Things will still progress the same way they did between SNES and PS2 eras, but they will progress towards those ends much slower and will progress towards different methods of gameplay much quicker right now. And then maybe that will change again in 1 or 2 generations.

What software lineup?

PS3 has nothing right now it just came out 6 months ago. It won't even start picking up till October or so and it will catch up quick especially with the price drop that is basically guaranteed.

Wii same situation as the PS3. Only difference are that dev's are pushing out games at a quick rate because they didn't think it would take off. As anyone can see quality titles are starting to come in as dev's are starting to put more time and resources into the games for higher sales.

360 is the only system that is ahead of all of them in terms of software and userbase right now. And it should be since it's been out longest.

But hey everyone has their own choices anyway. Wii will be the most demanding console for consumers for a very long time.
