Speaking to investors in a call last night - following a Q4 sales warning - EA boss John Riccitiello admitted the company is struggling to find a foothold on Wii and that its natural home was the HD consoles and PC.

Riccitiello said that a handful of EA's Wii releases, like Boom Blox and the My Sims series, are performing well, "but there's no question that having the lead platform be a platform with two thirds of the unit sales occurring to the first-party owner is a really unusual thing.

The exec added that EA's "home territory" is still the PlayStation 3, PC and Xbox 360, admitting "We've got work to do on the Wii."
