Activision warming up Wii sports comp

Football, basketball, hockey, lacrosse, soccer, and tennis provide basis for 22 different events in Big League Sports collection.

by

From Wii Sports to Deca Sports, athletic-minded minigame collections have thrived on the Wii, but so far Activision has been noticeably absent from the party. No longer, as the publisher today announced that it will have Big League Sports on store shelves this holiday season.

Big Leaguers are cute AND intense!

Big League Sports will feature 22 different events pulled from six different sports: football, tennis, basketball, hockey, lacrosse, and soccer. Up to four players will be able to customize their own athletes and compete in single game, marathon, or tournament modes. Naturally, the events will attempt to mimic the real-world motions of athletes using the Wii Remote.

Big League Sports is being developed by Koolhaus Games. The studio's portfolio is heavy on mobile games, with previous efforts including the cell phone ports of Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved and the Megatouch coin-operated bar-top games.

the graphics is not charming enough ... but if the review is good, I'll try to rent it first

Unfortunately, or perhaps fortunately depending upon your point of view...bad reviews don't always equal bad sales. This kind of game sells on Wii, so that's what devs are going to make.

why do they keep making these game because they sell deca sports sold 700,000 copies and game party sold over million so if these types of games sell they will keep on making them.

Besides Activision has the rights to the National Lacrosse League, they'd better do a real game based on that license than a collection of cheap minigames featuring a kiddy version of the sport.

I'm all for new Wii sports games as long as they don't suck.

Boo! Hiss! Minigame collections are no longer in demand.
