Sega done with mature Wii games
Sega America studio director Constantine Hantzopoulos expresses disappointment in the reception of mature games on Nintendo's console, outlining the slim possibility of any future mature titles from Sega.
In the latest 4 Guys 1UP podcast, Hantzopoulus cites middling sales of Sega's mature trifecta - Madworld, House of the Dead: Overkill, and The Conduit - as indicative of a larger trend on Wii. Despite a concerted effort to promote each title, none have proven to be a hit.
"But that begs the question, are we going to do more mature titles for the Wii?" he poses. "And it's like, probably not."
Hantzopoulus references the surprisingly poor performance of EA's Dead Space Extraction as a prime example of what Sega wants to avoid. In other words, more Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games, less blood and buxom witches on Wii.
