Ubisoft loves Wii

Thursday 3 August 2006
Ubisoft's North American President Laurent Detoc, has made it clear just how much his company loves Wii, stating that he expects Nintendo's new console to have a large audience and market. "The first time I picked up that sucker I couldn't stop playing it," he said.

Detoc's company intends to capitalise on this success as it has seven games currently in development for Wii including the shooter Red Steel and Rayman Raving Rabbids.

This is great news for prospective Wii owners as Ubisoft has managed to maintain a consistent level of quality over the last few years with games such as Prince of Persia, Beyond Good & Evil and Splinter Cell, which all received both critical and commercial success.
