The case of RE4 and REUC undermine the widely held belief that third-party Wii games struggle to sell on Nintendo's motion-sensing console.

real shame for Zack & Wiki and Okami, some people don't know good games if they hit them in their face.

It's advertising and brand awareness. Zack & Wiki is great, but only a small percentage of Wii owners will know this or want to take a risk on a game like this, that doesn't describe what it is in the title.

Compare that to Resident Evil, which is more widely known, and you're bound to see a difference.

Capcom should have advertised Zack & Wiki better, that's all.

Forgetting of course that Okami was released on the PS2 two years before the Wii version, and that it sold even LESS on PS2.

Here's an idea ; Try advertising your games if you want people to buy them. At the time Zack & Wiki was released I was a student on a Computer Games Production course. There were other people on the course, some of them huge Nintendo freaks, who had no idea what the game was.
