The New York Times
is today reporting that Nintendo has gained crucial allies in the console war: game developers and publishers.
Despite Sony's best effort to convince the public that first year sales of a console don't really matter, it seems developers and publishers want to make and sell games for consoles that have sold well in that first year. What's more, these developers and publishers are preferring the inexpensive nature of making games for the Wii, as opposed to the PS3, which often costs twice as much. (Of course, if the PS3 was flying off the shelves, that wouldn't be a problem).
While none of this comes as a surprise to those who have been closely following the video game industry this year, the fact it is being reported in the mainstream media, provides another nail in the PS3 coffin, and another boost for the Wii.
The masses want to buy the console with the best games. The New York Times
is telling people that it's looking like the Wii will have the best games. And, while I still believe Nintendo President Satoru Iwata's comment that the Wii could top the PS2 in number of consoles sold
was bold (and even arrogant), articles like this make it more of a possibility.
