Wii to top 50 million sold in a few weeks
This month the Wii will pass the 50 million mark for consoles sold worldwide. This is a milestone and a record, the previous record was Playstation 2 which sold 50 million systems 8 months later than the Wii will.
Yet developers are still treating the Wii like a 3rd tier system. Granted some are coming around in a big way like Sega, but others are trying to look like they are supporting the system in full force but aren't fooling anyone (Capcom, EA). So my suggestion to Third Parties is to support the Wii in full, or risk loosing more money or going out of business (Factor 5, Free Radical) by staying with Sony and Microsoft they are just wasting a lot of their resources.
