Speaking in an earnings call following the release of full-year financials last night, Take-Two CEO Ben Feder said the firm was taking a harder look as which mature games could be brought to Wii.

“We believe we’ll continue to benefit from the growing install base of the Nintendo Wii,” said Feder. “Our relationship with Nintendo has never been stronger,” he added, calling it a “great foundation on which to build.”

“Even some of the M-rated content that we think is much more appropriate for the [Xbox] 360 or the PS3… we have to look at the Wii as a viable platform, because we can’t ignore that install base,” Feder said. “We just can’t.”

Wii’s Carnival Games was picked out as a hot title the company in 2008.
