Reggie discusses online opportunities for Wii, wants to know why Resident Evil 5 isn't on Wii

In our view, there is untapped opportunity in packaged (Wii) software to have an online element. We’re seeing more and more of that: downloadable content with ‘Rock Band,’ with ‘Guitar Hero…’ What Nintendo is doing is messaging to the consumer how easy it is to get online and all of the benefits. That messaging began last fall with some pre-installed content that messages: ‘Here’s everything you get as a benefit of going online…. You can go online and play ‘Mario Kart,‘ there’s channels…” We’re committed to driving our installed base. And, certainly, for any consumers who already enjoying downloadable content, the SD card and high-capacity SD card capabilities that we announced today takes it to a whole other level.” - Reggie Fils-Aime

Reggie also has a question for Capcom, which Capcom will answer tomorrow…

“Why wasn’t ‘Resident Evil‘ and other key Capcom releases that are in the marketplace now… why wasn’t there a Wii execution?”
