Something new coming to this gen that I personally viewed as a surprise is that few formally exclusive Wii games are testing the waters by coming over to the PS3 and other consoles.
As we know, there have been many articles on the Wii and core and/or mature games not selling well on it. Whether this be the case and the reason behind it isn’t what I really want to discuss, but the fact that developers are looking to target additional audiences with their once Wii exclusive due to the lack of sales.
The first of its kind or at least the first to break headlines was Suda51 with his “No More Heroes”, a game that was though to have a decent sized audience and decent sales on the Wii. It was announced that “No More Heroes” will be getting new modes, as well as a resolution boost on the PS3 and other HD systems. I believe this is going to be a near full priced game.
Next is Dead Space Extraction. An inside rumor has stated that this game will come to the PS3 and other HD consoles in the form of a downloadable game priced around $15 dollars.
My personal opinion on this, is that these 2 companies are testing the waters to see if it’s worthwhile. I fully expect “No More Heroes” to sell decently. Possibly even break a million…
So if these games sell well, its only obvious that other companies will follow…
Do you want more Wii games either on full Blu-ray versions or PSN downloadable games? What Wii exclusives would you like to see come over to PSN?
