The Wii only has a couple of good years left in it, according to SEGA's vice president of marketing in the U.S., Scott Steinberg.
When discussing the Wii's future with Reuters, Steinberg said,"I am a little concerned about the creative depth of the Wii pool. I'm not sure if they will top out in 2008 or 2007."
Basically, then, Steinberg reckons that instead of the historical console life-span of five years, the Wii only has one or two years in it before people lose interest.
He went on to say, "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."
His comments might sound a little odd to anyone who's been keeping an eye on SEGA's list of upcoming releases. The company's practically been throwing its spiky blue mascot at Nintendo platforms, with the Wii being the only home console to get a half-decent Sonic game
in the last year and Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games
coming to both the Wii and DS.
