“The Wii platform, ten years ago, was so successful and anything you launched on it was selling. Even with some lesser qualitative stuff, you were able to be successful. But that was all changing and you could only sell quality products. We had Mario & Sonic back in those days, and that game was selling so much that a number of other titles could afford to underperform. But when the sales of Mario & Sonic, and the Wii in general, began to slow down, it became very visible that we had to change.”

Well there you go right there. “Lesser qualitative stuff” means shovelware, and the now former COO of SEGA Europe isn’t afraid to come out and say that. He may say it in a more polite way, but we all know what he’s saying.
