Locked: So the Wii is missing out on 3 Bionic Commando games.

So we all know the new Bionic Commando game isn't coming out for Wii, and Rearmed isn't coming out for Wii, and now we can't get the original on VC. Do you  know why? Because we didn't get the new one or Rearmed. Nintendo isn't going to advertise a game on the PS3/360, that would be idiotic.


 Capcom, I'm really pissed right now. I want to play these games, but you give us Wii owners the shaft. No RE5 Wii, possibly no Dead Rising 2, no Lost Planet, no Flock, no Age of Booty, No Street Fighter 4, no Devil May Cry, no Dark Void. Instead we get Ports/Spin-offs, a potty mouth game (Spyborgs), We Love Golf (Bad swing mechanics), Neopets (Do I need to say anymore about that one), and Zack and Wiki(I'm in no way bad mouthing this game, it's great).


Are we not getting MotoGP either?


Why do we always get the shaft?

They didn't seem to have any issue with advertising for Metal Gear or Ninja Gaiden, though - and MGS4 along with NG2 are both fairly significant titles that don't have a hope in hell of popping up on the Wii. Or Street Fighter for that matter.


Maybe, just maybe there's another issue at hand? Assumptions are good and all that, but you know what they say about them.


Here's an idea: If the console you own doesn't have the games you want...


Wait for it,


Buy a new console that does have the games you want!

This thread is probably going to be locked in a matter of time. It's all been covered before, but I thought I'd pitch in with my two cents. Not everyone can afford the high-def systems.


And well, if the demand is there for all these games on the Wii, why the hell not? I suspect it's a matter of time, just like with a lot of other games. Things will probably get better for Wii owners as we go into next year, and more people start to do simultaneous development for all three platforms.

A Wii is what? $250? (correct me if I'm wrong, here)


An XBOX360 Arcade is $279.99, according to Amazon. The now endangered 20GB model is $299.99. That's all of what? $30-50 more expensive?


Sorry, not convinced.

I meant in the event that you already bought a Wii and don't have the cash for more systems.

I do know why as I was involved in those discussions however I can't provide details. Suffice to say, we tried to make it happen and it didn't work out.

We are contemplating versions of one or two of the CEI titles you've mentioned on the Wii (not saying which), but we'd like to see how they do on their initial target systems before doubling down on additional SKUs.


Instead we get Ports/Spin-offs, a potty mouth game (Spyborgs), We Love Golf (Bad swing mechanics), Neopets (Do I need to say anymore about that one), and Zack and Wiki(I'm in no way bad mouthing this game, it's great).



Spyborgs I still say will surprise people (stay tuned)... WLG is the highest rated golf game on Wii according to gamerankings.com... Neopets is getting great press (a couple best puzzle game of E3 nominations from various outlets) and Z&W, which you'd already agreed with my stance on. I'd say that's pretty solid. You also forgot RE4, RE:UC, Okami and Harvey Birdman.


Are we not getting MotoGP either?



And yes, MotoGP 08 is coming to Wii as well.


Why do we always get the shaft?



From my perspective, excluding downloadables, we've shipped more games on Wii than 360 or PS3, including two RE titles.  I don't see the Wii getting shafted at all.


That said, if you'd like to vent further, there's at least one or two open threads for that purpose. I'd like to keep them consolidated as the backlash from non-Wii owners (or even Wii owners who have heard the complaints a bit more than they can handle) tends to get rather severe here.


In any event, thanks for your post.
