RE: Wii Tie-in Ratio at 8:1 in December
What I was thinking about Wii and 3.5 users per household is along this line :
- You (and me), as hardcore, we bought RE4, SMG, RE:UC and other (hardcore) game.
- My wife, or kids, as casual, they bought other game, like Carnival Games, Cooking Mama, Big Brain Academy and other (casual) game. Of course, my kids doesn't have fixed income, so their game purchase will come from their savings / allowance, not from my budget (except during christmas).
If it is only me that is playing Wii, my purchase of game will not be as much as compared to when me + family play Wii. This is one of the possible explanatin of the high tie-in ratio for Wii in Dec 07.
Of course, there are still Wii Hardcore gamer, but the percentage is significantly less than X360 Hardcore gamer.
PS : I am not sure whether SMG should be categorized as casual games or hardcore game, so I put it as hardcore.
