Sony: As Wii novelty wears off publishers return to PlayStation

Posted on Friday, February 19 2010 @ 14:52:48 CET by


Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA) Senior VP of PR Roby Dyer told IndustryGamers that the PlayStation 3 is benefiting from the Wii publisher backlash. Many game publishers rushed to the Wii once they saw the huge success of this console, but as the novelty wears off, Nintendo's first-party products continue to dominate the Wii games sales charts, and third-party publishers don't get enough sales to justify investments in new mature and core games for the Wii.
"What publishers have said is they're not going to spend the resources on Wii... In my job, we compete against Microsoft and Nintendo, and we're competing for resources. So when I walk into a publisher, I ask, 'Where are you guys pushing your resources?' In the past, it was 'Look how hot the Wii is,' or 'Look how hot the DS is,' and 'We should put resources there.' They did that and realized, 'You know what, third-party product just doesn't sell on that platform.' So now they're taking those resources, coming back to us and saying, 'Sony we're going to be able to provide you with that exclusive content,' or 'We're going to put more engineers on it and figure out to maximize the Blu-ray and get more out of PS3.' That's what we're seeing now," he stated.
