The other day, Nintendo of America's president Reggie Fils-Aime stated how Nintendo isn't very good at making mature games. The beefburger boss has since elaborated on his comments, stating that part of the reason is that Nintendo simply doesn't enjoy creating them. 

"It's a priority for us bringing a range of entertainment. It's a priority for us to have a range of third party licensees see success on the platform," claims the medium rare executive. "It's a priority for us to make sure that every consumer has content that they're going to enjoy.

"Now, the challenge for us is that we, ourselves, Nintendo, don't create that type of content. We're not experts at it. Our developers don't particularly enjoy making that content. They probably could make stellar content, if they chose to. We choose to do something else. So it really is up to the third party developer to create that great content and bring it to life on the platform."

Did Reggie just pull the "We could totally do that if we wanted, we just don't wanna" card? Either way, you can't fault a developer for sticking to its strength. The Wii, in the past year, has seen some great support from third parties and I hope it continues. If only the Wii consumers would, in turn, support those third parties, everything would be great.
