More Developers Tell Us What They Think About the Wii

Advanced Media Network has talked with a few more developers about their thoughts on the Nintendo Wii, and they all have similar thoughts. At first, all three of them were shocked at the name, but now they’ve all grown to accept and even like it. As Joseph Hatcher of AGFRAG says, “You don’t forget it easily. So yes, I like the Nintendo Wii name.” Erick Dyke of n-space had an interesting analogy to make.

“Back before the launch of the Playstation, when we were working with SCEA, we tried to tell the powers that be that the name Playstation was too juvenile and child like for the American market – Boy were we wrong.”

Greg Szemiot gave his experiences on everything Wii so far.

“Just like everything else Wii related, the name caught me off guard, and I think I had the same initial reaction as everyone else. When the controller was shown, a slight sinking feeling. when the specs were shown, a slight sinking feeling. when the name was revealed, a slight sinking feeling. So why am I supporting Wii after all those sinking feelings? Because that only lasts until we understand the reasoning behind it.”
