Well, here's a change. Instead of putting the Wii on the level of last-gen consoles, which some developers have done recently
, Will Wright believes that the Wii is the only
console deserving of a "next-gen" title.
creator recently told CVG
, "Somebody asked me what I thought next generation meant and what about the PlayStation 3 was next generation. The only next gen system I've seen is the Wii - the PS3 and Xbox 360 feel like better versions of the last, but pretty much the same game with incremental improvement." To Wright, next-gen consoles must reach a new demographic, which the Wii has done. Furthermore, it's Wright's Xbox 360 that sits unused
, collecting dust, while his Wii gets played constantly.
We don't completely agree with Wright's assessment, since we think that the Xbox 360 and PS3 bring more than graphics to the table. Still, it's nice to hear a well-known developer praising the merits of the Wii rather than dismissing it because of its weaker graphics.
