Head honcho of Capcom France, Antoine Seux, has said the company will be doing a lot less stuff for Wii after the disappointing sales of Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles.

The game only sold 16,000 units in the three weeks since it’s launch back in November, in stark contrast to the Wii-developed version of Resident Evil 4, which sold 140,000 during it’s release in summer 2007.

“This is the year of the emergence of so-called ‘new console generation’,” said Seux.

“The Wii is still an important part of sales, but growth is on both [Sony and Microsoft’s] platforms. The Wii console is very much a family commitment… for us, Capcom, the future is the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360.”

Earlier this week, Sega said it was no longer going to develop mature Wii titles after disappointing sales of The Conduit and Madworld.
