During an interview with Shacknews, Sid Meier talked up tons of topics, however all we
care about is what he had to say about the Wii. Apparently, he has had a turn with the console and from what he played (Excite Truck
and Wii Sports Tennis
, to be exact), he liked.Shacknews: What are your thoughts on the Nintendo Wii? Do you think it will offer exciting new game play possibilities, or do you see it as more of a flash in the pan?
Sid Meier: I just attended a demonstration of the Wii and it's a very fun system. We played Tennis and Excite Truck and had a blast. The controller is definitely a unique approach and is pretty intuitive. It won't work for all games, but it makes lots of sense for games that require individual character movements (like tennis, baseball, sword fighting, driving etc.).
