NINTENDO: ‘We’re the best choice for third parties’

Nintendo has claimed that third-party publishers will find more success on Wii than Xbox 360 or PS3 this calendar year.

Nintendo of America boss Reggie Fils-Aime told E3’s crowd at the platform holder’s conference in Los Angeles this morning that third-party developers were "flowing" to Wii and DS.

He showed off EA’s new Tiger Woods game on Wii – which both take advantage of Wii Motion Plus technology – as well as Square Enix’s Final Fantasy.

More third party games were sold for Wii than any other platform last year," said Fils-Aime, "and DS was second. That trend will only grow this year."
