    The Nintendo Wii is a home video game console released on November 19, 2006.

It became the best selling home console of its respective generation of hardware.

    How many Third Party games do you actually have?

    I just realized out of the 13 Wii games I own, only 5 are non-Nintendo (ie first party) games, and out of these five, two are PS2-Ports.

    Kind of a shame.

    Whats your First/Third party ratio?

    Wii: 2 first party, 0 third party.

    PS3: 3 first party, 3 third party.

    Depends on which console you are talking about. For the PS3, I have plenty.  For the Wii  and Xbox 360, I have very few third-party games.

    I didn't get them mixed up.

    *reads post again*

    Oh, alright. It sounds like I did. The "i.e. first party" refered to the "Nintendo"-part, not the "non"-part.  :P

    Wii: First Party: 10
    Wii: Third Party: 5

    PS3: First Party: 5
    PS3: Third Party: 6 (still mostly PS3 exclusives: Valkyria, Metal Gear...)

    Most hardcore Wii owners bought it to play first party games, so there's my excuse for owning so many.

    Zero. I was actually discussing this with a friend the other day, and it seems like Capcom might be the only third-party company producing games on the Wii that are actually worth owning. They've released games like No More Heroes, Zack and Wiki, Okami (Wii port), and RE4 (Wii port).

    Capcom didn't release No More Heroes, brah. Ubisoft and Grasshopper.
    Well, I own 11 first party and 8 third party. After Christmas, my third party games will outnumber my first party. Take that, haters. Also, if you include WiiWare, my 3rd party outweighs the first by quite a bit already.

    Excluding RE4, de Blob is better than anything Konami has put on the console.

    Okay, my mistake on No More Heroes. Though, it is made by the guy that made Killer 7 which was by Capcom, I believe.

    6 out of my 13 Wii games are 3rd party... not bad, I guess.  Of the 5 WiiWare games, all of them are 3rd party... Nintendo hasn't really impressed me with their WiiWare lineup, yet.

    5 out of 6 are third party, not counting Wii Sports (which would make it 5 out of 7). I have:
    SSBB (Nintendo)
    Boom Blox
    No More Heroes
    Okami
    Rayman Raving Rabbids
    Zack & Wiki

    That's skewed, however, because I still haven't picked up Metroid Prime 3 or Twilight Princess - I put them off and went for cheaper third-party games in hopes they'd be cheaper when I do get around to them.

    3 of 10 ( Counting Link's Crossbow Training & Wii Sports ) Wii games are Third Party.
    26 of 38 Virtual Console games are Third Party.
    8 of 10 WiiWare games are Third Party.

    I'd buy more third party titles, but my money was spent on three 360 games.

    4 out of my 7ish Wii games are third party. Have like 20ish VC games and only 5 of them I can think of off the top of my head are first party, so the other 15 are third party. Only have 2 Wii Ware titles, one is third party.

    I own no third party games on my Wii, unless you count Virtual Console... which I don't. Of course, I only own three games (I don't count Wii Play or Wii Sports as "games").

    Interesting question. 8 of 12 of our Wii games are 3rd party.

    DDR
    GH3
    Metal Slug Anthology
    Samba de Amigo
    Boom Blox
    No More Heroes
    Geometry Wars Galaxies
    Mercury Meltdown Revolution

    We have previously owned more 1st party games (Zelda, mario Galaxy, Paper Mario) but have sold them back to the evil empire.

    Out of my 15 Wii games,

    First party (6) stuff is made up of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, Mario Kart Wii, Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, Super Mario Galaxy, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, and Wii Play (it came with the Wii remote I bought).

    Third party (9) games are de Blob, Endless Ocean, Madden 07, No More Heroes, Pro Evolution Soccer 2008, Red Steel, Resident Evil 4, Scarface: The World is Yours, & Sonic and the Secret Rings.

    I've also got some WiiWare stuff if you want to include that. Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: My Life as a King, Gyrostarr, LostWinds, & Mega Man 9
