LucasArts Talks Wii


Posted July 23, 2007 - By Stephen Johnson

In a recent interview with The San Jose Mercury News, LucasArts president Jim Ward had some choice words for the Nintendo Wii that gave a unique view into the relationship between Nintendo and third-party devlopers.

"With all due respect to Nintendo, they're not the greatest at third-party relationships because they're kind of focused on their own games. So we didn't really know a whole lot about this thing, and they weren't out there trumpeting, 'We're going to broaden the industry.' They just kind of let it happen. But that direction and that effort - I'm on a mountaintop cheering that on. And so . . . for us, there was a bit of a wait-and-see in terms of 'Well, what in the hell is this thing even?[ and 'Is it going to take off?' But the minute we understood what it was, we began development."

No word on that lightsaber game, however.
