Nintendo's Software Problem, Is the Wii buried under ShovelWare? [Part 1]


There's no denying that Nintendo's Wii Console is hot. So hot that it can't be manufactured fast enough. So hot that it's penetrated the mass market. Now that millions of people & families have bought the system, including plenty of new gamers who might not know how to avoid some of the crap that's being released for the system. How come there is a dearth of quality games for the console? The Wii may be popular, but is it attracting shovelware just looking to cash in on it's time in the limelight?

Rooted In Tradition
While third-party developers have praised the Wii as being easy to develop for, this and the fact that many Wii owners are casual or first-time gamers might have the unwanted residual effect of cheaply made games being rushed to market strictly to take advantage of consumers. As cynical as this may sound, we've seen this before when the Atari 2600 defined home console gaming in the early '80s. That situation led to the industry crash in 1983. when the market bottomed out due to a flood of poor software. Nintendo systems have, of course. always been home to Triple-A First-Party titles that leverage the company's historic characters and gameplay philosophies. However, third-parties have typically had less success on Nintendo's platforms. Even though the Wii is selling better than its home console predecessors, third-party software is not benefitting as much from the platforms popularity. Nintendo has traditionally not had the greatest relationship with its third-party software partners. Whether it was Nintendo's decision to stick with the cartridge format for the N64 while the PlayStation adopted the CD-ROM or the notorious lack of support from the company in other areas (a developer once said that Nintendo would not distribute blank GameCube proprietary discs. Instead, it made companies arrange their own bulk shipping from Japan), it's clear that Nintendo is always in the drivers seat.

From what I heard, the reason Wii has a lot of bad games is because Nintendo doesn't have a group which decides what games should and shouldn't come out on the system. Both Xbox and Playstation have these. There was a big article about the whole thing in EGM a few months back.
