SEGA already done with Mature Wii titles?
After the poor performance of MadWorld on the Wii, it seems as if SEGA has had enough of trying bring mature titles to the Wii. A comment issued by a studio director denoted that they will probably not be doing any more mature titles for Nintendo's popular console machine.
<blockquote>Constantine Hantzopoulos, a Sega of America studio director, told news site 1Up that the company would not likely make further risks with hardcore Wii games.
“Are we going to do more mature titles for the Wii? Probably not,” he said.
“I have to say that it was a space that was open and we took a gamble on it. It’s like, ‘Wow, there’s no mature games on the Wii. Is there an audience out there?’ We did some research, it said there was an audience out there.”</blockquote>

should have been on the 360 would have sold better.sad it didn't do better one of the best games for the wii not made by Nintendo
Wii sold 56+million units worldwide and real games still fail to sell any reasonable amount, even Resident Evil 4 barely sold 1.5million, pathetic.
I liked and bought Mad World, but I would not say that it was a great game. I would not recommend to anyone without trying it out first.
The House of the Dead: OVERKILL was the best mature title for the Wii last year and it did have modest sales and lots of torrent downloads.
1.6 million is pretty damn good for a remake. How many people didn't already have the GC, PS2 or even PC version? Also RE4 for Wii had to compete with Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles for the holiday sales. Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles sold pretty well as well.

That said the other two console audiences are more open to third party games, the 360 and PS3 have one first party exclusive in the top five each, The audience is somewhat older, less family oriented and more likely to pick up a gorefest game like madworld.
A little clue, If you have to tell the audience your game is hardcore, the best thing since sliced bread and if they don't buy it its their fault for a lack of hardcore games on the Wii.. you know damn well your game is utter crap.
There WAS an audience, but they probably had their fun with the system and have sold it off by now.

The next nintendo console is for fat women, which offers free abortions, will be a backwards console, with backwards compatibility, and only play remakes of nintendo's remakes.
BUT you lose weight everytime you play.
