MS exec questions Wii's long-term

Not a fan of PS3 online either.

Chris Satchell, general manager of Microsoft's Game Development Group, has questioned whether the Wii has got what it takes to keep gamers' interests in the long run.

Speaking in an interview with our sister site GamesIndustry.biz, Satchell said, "I think the Wii is of interest, I'm not sure what its long term potential is. It's a super-strong for Nintendo's first-party IP, but beyond that�

"I get that it is getting more developer support and that's good, but I just don't know if it's going to be that compelling."
