Electronic Arts CEO On Moving to Wii Development

One thing that’s different is we typically figured out who the market leader was going to be before the start of the cycle and bet with our development resources on that platform. We made the wrong call there (by betting on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360), which made this transition harder than it would otherwise be. But now we’re catching up, and I think we’re fine. We’ve got some incredibly innovative Wii titles, incredibly innovative DS titles coming. And so I think that issue’s sort of behind us.

WOW… just WOW a wrong call by betting on the 360 and the PS3? Seriously? I hope they have some pretty big tricks up their sleeves as my Wii has been collecting dust for some time, even before the PS3 purchase, my PS3 however has seen daily use since I bought it. The only game I want to finish on the Wii is Resident Evil 4, I have also have Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles and the aiming is to inconsistent and inaccurate. Then I have Legend of Zelda but for some reason Link’s latest adventure felt flat just a bunch of me too quests like WoW. All I wanted to do was wander around like the days of old and kick some ass not herd a bunch of goats. So I’ll say it again, if you got it EA bring it, if you don’t just stay home.
