Analyst Explains Poor Wii Sales For Madden NFL 10

Jesse Divnich, games analyst at EEDAR has commented on why Madden NFL 10 sold quite badly on the Wii citing Madden NFL 09 being a bit crap left a bad taste in gamer's mouths. The latest in the franchise saw a 42% decline in sales for the Wii compared to last year:
“I believe many die hard Madden fans, who transitioned from the PS2 to the Wii, made their yearly Madden purchase in 2008 and realized that the Wii could not offer the same experience they have grown accustom to (online play, realistic graphics, in-depth team management)."

“Avid Madden fans have the curse of knowledge … and they know that Madden cannot offer the same experience on the Wii as it did for the PS2."

“Anyone introduced to the FPS category through the keyboard/mouse combination even still today refuses to accept the analog controllers as a legitimate FPS controller."
