Sega doubts Wii's continued success

WiiTableAlthough Nintendo’s Wii seems to be in full bloom regarding its success as a game console, the Vice President of marketing for Sega, Scott Steinberg, doesn’t think the Wii will last.

Steinberg said, "I am a little concerned about the creative depth of the Wii pool. I’m not sure if they will top out in 2008 or 2007.

He then went on to point out that as the 360 and PS3 advance in their library of games, the Wii may fall uncomfortably behind. "The Wii will start to look really dated in a couple years when developers get more value from the 360 and learn more and more about the PlayStation 3."

However, there is another factor which may cause the Wii to start stumbling — mediocre, under-par games. While new titles are rolling off the presses of game publishers, there is already grumbling from the game community that some Wii games are merely an attempt to cash in on the gimmick of the Wii motion controllers — without any real thought about gameplay.

Spider-Man 3 anyone?
