Mark Rein will sculpt no paintings, paint no statues

July 9, 2008

Because Mark Rein’s a sculptor, and he’ll be damned if he crosses mediums. For the sake of art.

No we don’t have any plans to make something for the Wii. That’s like asking a sculptor when he’s going to start painting. That’s just not our medium. That’s not our area of expertise — our area of expertise is the more high-end consoles and things that push technology higher. That’s what we do — there’s a lot more water in that well for us, when that runs dry then maybe we’d have to think of doing something else but I don’t think that well is going to run dry anytime soon.

Money and installed base are no suitors to Mark Rein, artiste. But grab some duct-tape plus another GameCube and he’ll sell out tomorrow morning.

    My comment from the linked post is still relevant to this day.

    “I think the Wii is just a 2 to 3 year console. I believe a new upgraded Wii will come out with HD tech for a similar price. You are buying a cheaper console but overall will end up paying the same amount as a 360 or PS3 for the same amount of $$$.

    Just a thought.

    I like playing VC games more than Wii games. Sad.”

    That has to wear on you at some point. It’s like dating the same girl long after you knew it was not going to work out.

    You seem to like comparing video games to babies and girlfriends fris. It’s time to jump off the obsession train and take a stroll down reality avenue buddy.

    Naw… I’m big on metaphors and analogies… always have been. Peoples commitment to their consoles has always intrigued me and I associate that with real life situations and relationships. It’s just the way my mind works.

    Right now you are sounding like a bitter girlfriend who is tired of my ways. STOP TRYING TO CHANGE ME!!!
