SF4 to my knowledge has only been announced for the PS3/360. The EGM article that came out this week showing screenshots and describing it seemed very vague as they said it would multi platform and historically Capcom has ported things to any system with a power button.I don't think SF4 has been announced for the Wii, and the Ghostbusters game is being built from the ground on up for it --- same story, just more cartoony characters.
Matt and Bozon at IGN dont think it will come to the Wii, not because it cant (the art style and graphics would move over fine) but because fighters do not sell well so far with the Wii control scheme the way it is (though developers need to just accept that they have to create a gamecube and classic controller scheme like Guilty Gear X has and Smash Bros Brawl will have)
And you are correct, Ghostbusters is being developed from the ground up (The PS2 edition will be ported from the Wii version) by a studio who is intimately familiar with the Wii, the cartoony graphics are a way to both sell to a younger fanbase as well as hide the negatives of it not being an HD system.
interview this week that said they were waiting for the PS3 to decide what they wanted to do because its not a viable platform for them yet
He said and I quote "It seems that Sony isn't sure what it wants to do. Is it making high-end electronics or a game console for gamers? I want them to clearly define their console."
He also called the Wii a toy in the same interview so its basically fanboy bait for all 3 platforms lol
The one thing we know for sure is that Square loves the DS, moving Dragonquest to the DS was a strong signal, and the work they put into FF3 as well as their upcoming FFIV is just harder evidence.
Also keep in mind that most people probably wont report any problems since the 80gb is not in the same supply numbers as the 60gb. The best thing to do in my opinion would be to see if gamefaqs boards for a certain game show any incompatbilities on any given game because I doubt Sony will keep an accurate listing (they have one for the UK/EU I think thats more accurate then their US site).Plus, I think when it says "no major issues found", it means no one has reported any issues. The issues may well exist, but if no one goes out of their way to report them, then I have no reliable way of knowing.
I could be wrong about this, but something seems fishy about that search tool.
I also forgot to mention Sega, while we may think a lot of their games are subpar or trash I think they are getting better. I loved Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games (in fact I asked for it for christmas from my in laws), and Nights looks like a good sequel to a game long thought dead a decade ago.Well, I think there's definitely some good 3rd part on it's way too. Nights and Okami among the forefront
They are also trying to revive their good Dreamcast/Arcade lineup with next years new Samba De Amigo (developed by Gearbox), House of the Dead 2 and 3, Ghost Squad, Bass Fishing, and rumors of a new Jet Set Radio.
Like I said just search prior to Nov 2006 and see the doom and gloom (even in these forums) about the Wii, love it or hate it the system has made amazing strides and forced people to pay attention.
2008 should be really good for all 3 systems, I think developers are finally realizing the power of the PS3 as well (if Uncharted and Ratchet and Clank are any indication), if they can stop making gimped 360 ports (even new games like Orange Box suffer from crappy porting from the 360) and get some more high quality games out in the new year they can get right back in it.
