In a recent interview with German news magazine, Spiegel, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot and European head Alain Corre admitted that the developer’s releases for the Nintendo Wii this past year have been less than stellar and promised better quality in future games. Though Ubisoft’s first offerings on the system — Rayman Raving Rabids and Red Steel — sold rather well and were actually pretty good, the rest of the games they put out on the system were mostly poor ports of older games and sold as such. Guillemot and Corre explained that they wanted to be the first to capitalized on ther Wii and sacrificed quality to that end. This can definitely be seen in some of the crud the company has released since the first Wii launch titles, such as Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones, Far Cry:Vengeance, and Monster 4×4. However, they both promised the company will make a much better effort in the next round of games.

I can’t recall the last time this happened; a developer is actually apologizing for making bad games. Of course, this is just a good business move, considering the majority of Ubisoft’s consumer base owns a Wii. Still though, nice to actually hear them say they plan to try harder.
