- Resident Evil 5 producer Jun Takeuchi
has noted that the Nintendo Wii isn't the best choice for any game which is powerful and pretty.
He added that the team is happy that they chose the Xbox 360 and PS3 for the game rather than go with the Wii.
To quote: A few months ago, Resident Evil 5 producer Jun Takeuchi claimed that the Wii would be unable to handle the title screen of Resident Evil 5.
Now most recently, Takeuchi has once again discussed Resident Evil 5 and has explained why the game isn't being released for the Wii. He says that the development team was looking to create "the most powerful, most pretty game" and "the Wii isn't the best choice."
"When we set out to make 'Resident Evil 5,' the guys knew that if you want to make the most powerful, most pretty game, the Wii isn't the best choice. From a business perspective it may have been, but after making this game we are happy with the choice we made."
