Nintendo stays focused on creating games that appeal to eastern audiences, didn't plan for huge Wii demand

Nintendo’s George Harrison has said that he doesn’t know of any plans to create more games for the western audience. The titles they create tend to appeal more to Eastern audiences, but right now the Wii is selling at amazing rates in the west. The one western style game that was in development, Project H.A.M.M.E.R., has been shelved indefinitely.

Mr. Harrison also reiterated what Reggie had to say about Wii supply over the holidays. Basically Nintendo just wasn’t ready for the huge demand.

“Typically, we’d have begun stockpiling console hardware back in August. But this year, we were selling all the Wii we could get, and we got all the way through the summer with basically no inventory in our warehouse.”
