Spongebob Squarepants Creature from the Krusty KrabCEO Brian Farrell in a conference call following the release of THQ’s Q2 results said the Wii is likely “to reach a multi-million installed base quickly“, adding that the company plans to ” launch an increased number of Wii SKUs in fiscal 2008″.

Other executives speaking during the call said there is “a great opportunity” to produce titles exclusively for Wii – saying “it’s just a matter of economics” when it comes to considering the value of doing so.

It’ll be interesting to see what happens with all these big third-party publishers their support if the Wii sells through the shipped 4 million units in 2006. Here’s a list of THQ Wii launch games: Disney Pixar’s Cars, Avatar: The Last Airbender, Barnyard, and SpongeBob SquarePants: Creature from the Krusty Krab. How about some STALKER or Supreme Commander THQ?

THQ was more cautious when the conversation turned to Sony’s new console, with Farrell stating, “We’ve chosen to release our titles on PS3 as its installed base grows in calendar 2007.”

Executives also observed that “the download opportunities don’t really kick in until the second half of 2007” and that “Sony is continuing to refine their online and download models”. Good to see they are looking to release PS3 download games next year.
