No Wii owners are hardcore. Yeah, that’s right. Well maybe not, but that’s what Akira Yamaoka thinks, anyway. Anyone who owns a Wii just isn’t hardcore enough to enjoy a Silent Hill game. Not awesome, Silent Hill guy. Not radical, either. All the Wii owners hate you now.
Lucky for me I don’t own a Wii, yet, so I’m still hardcore. Here’s the quote:
AY: We’re making Silent Hill 5 for next-gen consoles. Are there any other platforms besides that? [laughter]
WN: There’s the Wii.
AY: Ah, the Wii. Wiiiiiiiiii… Silent Hill Wii. Can we do it? Will players like it?
WN: Yeah! There’s a lot of potential there, using the remote as a flashlight, or a knife…
AY: Yeah, there’s potential.
WN: But no plans.
AY: No plans. The Wii user isn’t a hardcore user.
Ouch, sick burn man. I guess that makes sense, right…don’t release a game on the highest selling system because you’ve arbitrarily decided everyone that owns the system isn’t hardcore. I blame the misconception on the ads where old people are playing the Wii. I mean seriously.
