Looking forward to 2009



This is part two of my two part post, looking at the past year and the one ahead. In the first part below, I noted that North American and European review scores showed a lack of quality titles on Wii, but that Japanese reviews saw the console ahead.

I also argued that a lot of Western gamers keen on traditional games wrongly saw the Wii as carving its own niche, not realising that they themselves had become the niche and Nintendo's 'Touch Generations' titles now formed the mainstream of videogames.

Finally, I predicted that the sheer numbers of Wii consoles sold would convince third parties to both increase their Wii budgets and widen their portfolio to include more traditional games.

The sheer numbers

Starting our outlook with those numbers, the Thanksgiving weekend in the USA saw unprecedented sales of the hardware with 800.000 Wii consoles sold. In the entire month of November, more than two million units were sold.

Software sales were just as solid, as can be seen in the following statistics provided by Gamasutra. Up until October, four out of the five top-selling videogames in 2008 were Wii titles, all of them first party exclusives (not adding the Xbox360 and PS3 versions of 'Grand Theft Auto 4').


Top-selling videogames in 2008 (by unit sales, January through October)

1. 'Super Smash Bros. Brawl' (Wii): 3,5 million (estimated)
2. 'Mario Kart' (Wii): 3,4 million
3. 'Grand Theft Auto 4' (Xbox360): 3,2 million (estimated)
4. 'Wii Play' (Wii): 3,0 million
5. 'Wii Fit' (Wii): 2,8 million


In 2007, only two Wii titles made that list. The highest ranking one was 'Wii Play', making both lists. Also take into account that 'Wii Fit' is a premium title, bundled with hardware, and makes for significantly more revenue than games sold at a normal price.

Everybody's darling

It almost seems that Wii still is everybody's darling, with the possible exception of some Western gamers keen on traditional titles. Back in late 2006, Wii convinced the mainstream press right from the start. At the same time, a majority of developers randomly selected by Gamasutra personally preferred Wii over the PlayStation3. And this trend is continuing. TIME magazine voted ´Wii Fit´ one of their Top Ten Gadgets of 2008 while Forbes is feeling almost "sorry for Microsoft and Sony".


Nintendo's Christmas present to journalists in 2008: a Nintendo tree


Lastly, most industry analysts believe the Wii will continue to lead. NPD's industry analyst Anita Frazier believes that the console "really has incredible momentum heading into 2009" and especially notes the success of third party games like 'Guitar Hero World Tour'.

Many more Wii games will be announced soon, Michael Pachter, analyst with Wedbush Morgan Securities, told Reuters (via Yahoo News).


To me, the big story is what happens on the Wii because it's the dominant platform, and it will be interesting to see how the publishers approach the Wii audience. (...)

There must be dozens of Wii games planned for holiday 2009 that we don't know about yet, and I think that many games will be designed to use the Wii Fit balance board that we haven't conceived of yet.


Big titles in 2009

But, of course, we know of many big titles slated for 2009 already. NeoGAF user BDGAME compiled a comprehensive list, too long to reprint here. Browsing through it, you will find a wealth of RPGs and survival horror games. So will those Western gamers keen on traditional titles I have been citing so much finally make their peace with Wii? Will Wii finally become the next great gamer's console?

I would not be surprised if one of the two games Hideo Kojima has in store was a Wii exclusive. After all, he said back in May 2006 that he would like to develop for the console.


As a game designer, I'm very interested in creating something for the Wii. I'd like to run away from MGS 4 creation and create something for the Wii but unfortunately, I don't have anything that I can announce at the moment. I have lots of ideas for Wii but I have a heavy schedule with MGS 4 and Metal Gear Online (...) If I created something for Wii, I would like to create something entirely different to a normal FPS. I don't mind using the MGS world as a theme but currently I'm not thinking about that. I'd like to give Wii users a new experience - I think the Wii controller can be used in more innovative and fun ways.


Tetsuya Mizuguchi ('Space Channel 5', 'Rez') is developing a Wii game. The announcement of 'Dragon Quest X' as a Wii exclusive is another huge step in that direction, as is, perhaps most of all, 'Monster Hunter 3'.

Originally announced as a PlayStation3 exclusive, the title was switched to Wii "due to high development cost of titles for PS3". British gaming magazine EDGE believes that this title will mark a turning point for the Nintendo console.


Many are hoping that Monster Hunter‭ ‬3‭ ‬will be a turning point for Wii in Japan.‭ ‬Not in terms of sales,‭ ‬but in terms of perceptions among Japanese consumers,‭ ‬who still look on PS2‭ ‬as the last great‭ ‘‬gamer’s console‭’‬.‭ ‬The huge popularity of the title during TGS,‭ ‬and the very favourable feedback Capcom has had from fans and the press,‭ ‬suggests it may just have a chance.


To me, titles like 'House of the Dead: Overkill', 'The Conduit' and 'MadWorld' will mark that turning point, certainly in the Western world (where such a shift is much more needed). Either way, I strongly believe that in 2009, we will see a significant shift in both the public's as well as publishers' perception of the Wii.

Naturally, this year will also see some of the strongest games released on the other two systems with 'Resident Evil 5', 'Alan Wake', 'Killzone II' and 'God of War III'. But I nevertheless believe that 2009 will become the year in which the Nintendo console rightfully takes on the legacy of the previous great gamer's consoles, such as the NES and the PlayStation2.

Awesome read!

I think there will be also at least one exklusive Resident Evil game for the Wii (I hope for a remake of RE 2). Also Valve, Take 2 and EA have made statements, that they will release important games on Wii - or at least can´t ignore the console. ;-)

Not to mention, that maybe the next Mario and/or Zelda will released during 2009. And I have big hopes for Red Steel 2. It seems like Ubisoft gives the title the development-time it needs.

btw. it´s God of War III

Hi Raphael.

Thanks for your comments. Quite right, I did not mention the rumoured first party games slated for 2009. But I won't mind another Zelda, for sure ;)

Oh, and:

it´s God of War III

Oops, sorry! Got confused with Killzone II...

Don't get me wrong, I love the Wii, and this is a great post and very reassuring for us Wii owners.

I don't own any other console, but recently I have been using PS3 at friends' houses and I have to say the graphics on the PS3 are just so much better, they really leave the Wii behind.

In fact, my wife and I are very fussy about the games we buy for the Wii because the quality of the graphics is so poor that it has to be a very persuasive title for us to buy it. We mainly use ours for Wii Fit and retro gaming.

The last game we bought was Force Unleashed and I have to say I was disappointed. I was hoping to be able to control the light sabre more intuitively, but having to learn special moves was a little tedious.

Graphics update is desperately need imho, but I suspect that's not possible with the current hardware?

Perhaps I should just admit I am one of those 'western gamers' that you keep mentioning? :)

@Chris Brind!

The thing with Wii is due to it's low resolution it's best played on fairly small televisions. If you play it on big lcds/plasmas it becomes a pixely mess because there are simply not enough pixels to fill the entire screen.

The other thing is well, aside from Galaxy and to some extent Prime 3 there are simply no games that takes advantage of Wii like they are supposed to. That will finally change this year with graphically intense titles like Monster Hunter 3 and hopefully Conduit (if they get the art direction right.)


Also cvonsider Tenchu 4 and Fatal Frame 4 they both look quite good imo eventhough they don't match next gen gfx

Chris Brind said...

@IALS

Cheers, I'll keep an eye out for them.

And yes, we're playing Wii on a 720p screen. It (Star Wars Unleashed anyway) actually looks better when I play it Picture-in-Picture...

Falafelkid said...

Hi Chris.

Graphics update is desperately need imho, but I suspect that's not possible with the current hardware?

Quite right, it's hard to find real stunners on Wii. But they do exist. I recommend 'ExciteTruck', 'Super Mario Galaxy', 'Metroid Prime 3', 'Zelda: Twilight Princess' as well as the upcoming 'Monster Hunter 3' and 'The Conduit'. Also keep an eye out for the Factor 5 games. I will be able to post more about them in the near future.

As far as playing Wii on a big telly is concerned, I disagree with what has been said above. I bought myself the VDigi VGA cable for Wii which allows you to connect the console via VGA to any computer screen running 480p. It looks absolutely stunning on my big screen. Or rather, it makes you realise how crap some games like 'Quantum of Solace' were developed. ;)

If you are playing on an HD telly, you really should use the component cable. 480p really looks much better. And you should expect Wii titles to improve visually over the course of this year. Third parties have been ridiculously lazy up until now. Just look at the first party games I mentioned above (particularly 'Metroid Prime 3') and you will see what the console is capable of.

"As far as playing Wii on a big telly is concerned, I disagree with what has been said above. I bought myself the VDigi VGA cable for Wii which allows you to connect the console via VGA to any computer screen running 480p. It looks absolutely stunning on my big screen."

Computer screen? uum sorry, but I doubt that the size of your computer screen matches what one would consider somewhat big for a LCD/Plasma namely at least 40'' and bigger!

On smaller screen diagonals than 40 inch with progressive scan(480) turned on the picture remains tolerable.

I think anyone who has expirienced places like for example Skytown in "Metroid Prime 3"(which sports gorgeous art direction/texture design and resolution/wide vistas/high poly counts particularly during the boss fights) and the underwater sharkskull level in "Mario Galaxy" (extremely vibrant colours/a very rounded smoothed look on the objects/ beatuiful and sophisticated lighting featuring specular highlights on many surfaces like the metallic rockets) on a properly sized TV, with solid colour settings and component cables, can testify how stunning Wii games can look and what it's capable of in the hands of the right engineers/programmers and artists.

"..all HDTV's suck at doing standard definition. It is not a matter of opinion, it is a fact. A 720x480 SD 16:9 signal has 345,600 pixels total and a 1080p HDTV with a screen resolution of 1920x1080 has a total of 2,073,600 pixels. That is a difference of 1,728,000 pixels which are being stretched into an ugly muddy mess when your HDTV scales a 480p Wii signal to fit the screen."

....but only on HDTV with 40 inch screens and bigger I should add. Again, on smaller ones with solid settings the picture maintains sufficient quality imo.

Falafelkid said...

Just to get in on this debate, as a television person and a technology editor. Most HD tv sets really do not show a decent PAL or NTSC picture. Upscaling is the only method and the result is usually far more blurry than your old cathode ray tube. In fact, nothing beats the good old cathode ray tube.

Qualitywise 720p/1080p resolutions provide a tremendous difference particulary on big screens where 480p outputs start falling apart.

Ever played MGS4 on a big Sony 52 inch full HD screen? I have and I can tell you it would look hopelessly inferior on a 480p output no matter how powerful the engine is!

You mentioned you play on a 32 inch screen and that pretty much tells the whole story since a relatively small screen like yours is perfectly suited for Wii. There are enough pixels to fill the screen despite the resolution. So, of course it would look good on your set.

But stop fooling yourself HD is definitely an improvement over sd and a breakthrough for TV technology in general.

I have tried playing Wii games on that 52inch Sony screen too btw and I always felt inclined to switch into 4:3 mode because I couldn't take the blurry mess anymore. A 480p output just can't cope with what would be considered a big screen nowadays and that's not a matter of opinion.

Can we take your comment as a verification, that Factor 5 has at least two titles in development for Wii?

That would be very cool, cause this step is the best the campany can take in a situation like this! Also Julian could convert the Rouge Leader-Games with a new control-scheme to the Wii. This would be a clear chance of earning money.

If it fails, he must come back to Kölle. ;-)

ITS COLOUR/CONTRAST/FILTERING/FRAMERATE/ETC


AS EVERY HD MYTH ARTICAL ON THE NET PROVES

STOP STOP STOP WITH THE HD IS MAGICAL BS

480P SPIDERMAN 3 VS 1080P SPIDERMAN ON PS3 game

CLEARLY THE FILM LOOKS WAY BETTER RESOLUTION DOESNT EVEN COME INTO IT


I THINK WII HD/2 WHATEVER WILL USE SUPER RESOLUTION TO HELP FAKE HD AND INCREASE GPU EFFECTIVE PERFORMANCE

GREAT IDEA THE NATIVE RESOLUTION IS MEANINGLESS

ITS THE REAL WORLD PERFORMANCE YOU EXPERIENCE THAT MATTERS

and super resolution will allow huge bandwidth fillrate as native resolution can be held back a wii bit as super res scaling will help it look true 1080p

factor 5 maybe gone but i feel in my wiiwii that they may convert to a Nintendo only studio

just may happen

hasn't hd capped out at 1080p yet the quality still increases id say tech rather than resolution is making tv images sharper i agree not that resolution isn't great and all but to try and say resolution is the more important factor is very miss informed

you can have a great 480p image and a poor 1080p image resolution does not make or break a image

same goes sound you can have hd 7.1 it still may sound crap

but another game/etc maybe pro logic 2 and sound amassing


you cannot judge on format only final products polished to the tech they use

full HD not true HD!

Full HD TVs have a higher resolution than normal HD TVs.

What you don't understand is that you have to see the HD phenomenon in relation to the ever increasing sizes of TVs. The more pixels you have, the bigger your screen can be without the image getting blurry/pixely. There in lies the major strength of HD versus An SD signal. SD just can't keep up resolutionwise with what a 52 inch screen would "require" to maintain a sufficient quality image. Plasma and LCD technology enables people to buy bigger and thiner TVs for less money than before. It's a trend that will continue on. Again, that's what HD is good for frst and foremost to provide a higher quality image on bigger TVs. Of course, the overall image quality is dramaticaly improved too on HD but that's a nobrainer. The biggest advantage of HD over SD is that it provides a much clearer picture on XXL tvs imo.

HighDefinition is not just a marketing phrase. HD provides vastly improved image quality most notably on big screens where the difference compared to a low rez signal is staggering. HD is not just a marketing trick.

No one ever pretended that full HD(a 1080P resloution ) is the epitome of high definition technology and that it can't get any better. But that's besides the point anyway.

The point is that HD provides a vastly improved image over SD particularly on xxl sets where a 480 p output is at a dead end qualitywise.

Why do you keep on ignoring this simple fact?

full HD has 5 times the resolution of SD and this results in sharper images that sport more detail.

Just because Sony comes up with a name for people to associate these hgh rez TVs with doesn't mean it's a fraud. I wonder how you'd make that kind of assumptions? I have played many Ps3 games including GTA 4, MotorStorm and MGS4 on a 52 inch Sony full HD and I can testify that it looks incredibly sharp. And it's most certainly not just the PS3s tech that makes it look high rez and rich like you want to make us believe! Instead it's the combination of the tech and the TV's resolution that makes the difference.


Also note, whenever I played Wii on that 52 inch TV I felt inclined to shrink the picture by switching into 4:3 mode in order to keep it from becoming a blurry mess.

So, once and for all: A HD signal pushes 5 times as many pixels as a SD signal which in turn means that the image is much more defined and detailed.

Whether the names Sony created for it are valid or not is totally besides the point and irrelevant. Matter of fact is that HD is a step forward and not backwards or a hoax like you are making us believe.

Maybe you are just jealous because Wii games look like crap compared to PS3/360 games!?!
