It's not just what you make - it's how you sell it.

As a brand, blizzard has always made quality games, WOW cost allot in R & D but they have made it back by the bucket loads and any other mmporg they make will no doubt be a success, they have branded their products really well.

Either way, I see Joe's point (I think): game developers need to publish games that aim at each individual system's strong points rather than just porting games over and then trying to make it look like they also developed it for another system.....
The Wii/Guitar Hero/Rock Band should show, alone, that people are wanting/expecting innovation and new ideas in the market place and as with those examples they have been significantly rewarded.....

get in to - girls

This is true. (stereo)typically gamers don't come by women much unless they are relatives, co-workers/classmates or pixellated :)

(Translation: I reckon their next independent title will be ass pancake, because they haven't been paying attention.)
