SAN FRANCISCO (AFP) - High Voltage studio's Matt Corso says videogame lovers that think Nintendo's family-friendly Wiiconsoles are for seniors and little siblings are in for a big surprise in June.
That is when the videogame maker's "Conduit" title will hit the US market and, Corso contends, prove Wiis are ideal for action-adventure play typically associated with hardware rivals Xbox 360and PlayStation 3.
"It feels like 'Halo,' but it's not," Corso said while demonstrating "Conduit" in a private room at a Game Developers Conference that ends Friday in San Francisco.
"Halo" is a blockbuster science fiction action videogame made forMicrosoft's Xbox 360 consoles. Players battle alien hordes as a fierce soldier known as Master Chief.
"A lot of it is just getting over the stigma that Wii is for grandparents and our little brother; that is complete nonsense. We were super excited about making a game for Nintendo Wii."
"Conduit" players start as a Mr. Ford character that begins as asecret service agent investigating terrorist activity in Washington.
