This statement has a bit of overlap with the article we’ve just posted below, but there are more details that are worth discussing.
“We’ve got a bunch of sports titles that will take advantage of the Wii. Some of our best content really isn’t appropriate for the Wii. That said, “Carnival Games” has been a massive success for the company. We’re looking, in a disciplined way, of extending that brand to other areas. All of our sports titles are looking at the Wii as a potential platform. And, frankly, even the M-rated content that we think is much more appropriate for the PS3 or 360, we have to look at the Wii as a viable platform across all our labels. You just have to because you can’t ignore the installed base. You just can’t. We’re going to do a lot of learning with “GTA: Chinatown Wars” on the DS in terms of bringing that kind of content to a Nintendo platform. Our partnership with Nintendo is as strong as it’s ever been. We’re really excited about it. We talk to them all the time. They provide great feedback for us. We’re highly focused on it.” - Take Two CEO Ben Feder
Could we ever see a GTA game on the Wii? One would think that with a DS version coming out, anything is possible. Of course, Mr. Feder wasn’t talking about the next GTA, platform or otherwise.
“[As for] GTA in 2010 — it’s just way too early to talk about [with it still] at full price at retail. We’re not saying no, it’s just way to early to be talking 2010, especially ‘GTA’ in 2010.”
