Speaking to VentureBeat, Sega US president Simon Jeffery has said he believes no one’s satisfying the Wii-owning hardcore. We have a hunch he may be right.

“The Wii is a great opportunity for hitting hardcore gamers,” he said. “No one is doing that.

“With “Mad World” from Platinum Games, we are trying to show that millions of Wii games want to move on to mature games. They don’t have to have an Xbox 360 to do that.”

It’s not just the hardcore stuff lacking on Wii, though. There’s “good” games in general.

“There is a lot of crap coming out for the Wii in general,” Jeffery added. “But if it’s not a good game, it doesn’t sell. That flood of crap will die down as publishers become more coherent.”
