Sega: Wii hype will die down soon


"I am a little concerned about the creative depth of the Wii pool," Steinberg said in an interview. "I'm not sure if they will top out in 2008 or 2007." Steinberg, who is the vice president of marketing for the U.S. unit of Sega Sammy Holdings Inc., brings us a real concern. Could Nintendo's Wii console run out of steam by the end of this year?

"The Wii will start to look really dated in a couple years when developers get more value from the 360 and learn more and more about the PlayStation 3," Steinberg adds. But, isn't this the same for the Wii? Sure, we're getting tons of minigame compilations right now, but once developers become more used to developing with the Wiimote in mind, won't we see more original product coming for Nintendo's console?

Graphics aren't everything, y'know ...
