Although it acknowledges that some of its brands are "not appropriate" for the Wii, Grand Theft Auto publisher Take-Two is encouraged by the relationship it's built with Nintendo and hopes to continue efforts to address the Wii's significant install base.

As part of the company's fourth quarter financial results call, CEO Ben Feder specifically highlighted upcoming DS title GTA: Chinatown Wars as evidence of a growing relationship with Nintendo, and noted Carnival Games as an example of the kind of success on Wii that Take-Two hopes to continue pursuing.

"We believe we'll continue to benefit from the growing install base of the Nintendo Wii," said Feder. "Our relationship with Nintendo has never been stronger," he added, calling it a "great foundation on which to build."

"Even some of the M-rated content that we think is much more appropriate for the [Xbox] 360 or the PS3... we have to look at the Wii as a viable platform, because we can't ignore that install base," Feder said. "We just can't."

Was there an audience for japanese RPG before Final Fantasy VII?

Was there an audience for mature content before Resident Evil?

"Build the games and they will come!" is not necessarily the case.



Capcom invested a lot into Mature games on Gamecube with the Resident Evil series -- Resident Evil: REmake, Resident Evil 0, Resident Evil 4. Excellent games but it didn't seem to pay off.



According to VGChartz.com* even the amazing Resident Evil 4 didn't exceed 1.69 million worldwide. Disappointing considering the first 2 sold over 5 million each and the 3rd over 3 million on PS1. I don't know how this relates to the install bases, maybe the ratios are similar? Doesn't seem likely though.
