Ok as most know the Wii is going to be the cheaper consle coming out, but what really does it have to offer. Its big game names are pretty much Zelda, Smash bro's, and i guess you can say Metroid (i dont really like the one on gamecube and 3 seems the same).<br><br>
Everything else looks uh kiddy and as for most i dont think that style really goes with the gamers of today. Its to soon to say what will be the Wii so we will have to wait and see, but could this be just as the gamecube let down.<br><br>
Not trying to hate on the Wii so please no flaming.<br><br><br>

Yeah but I suppose if it works for them, then they should do it. Nintendo consoles have always been the underdogs. I think the PS3 will be too overpriced and buggy, so people might look into a Wii for the cheapness of it. IMO the 360 will win this generations console war.

You forgot good old Super Mario Bros, that's more iconic than Smash Bros. It was the original platformer after all, and there is a new one in the works.<br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">

I really thought that people would stop saying this after Resident Evil 4. I haven't looked it up, but I assume RE5 will be on the Wii...and there is no doubt that it will be the best on the Wii because you would be able to aim your gun with the remote. Frickin' awesome.<br><br>
And the Wii's remote is going to blow away the other's in terms of "style". Graphics upgrades are lovely on the other two, I admit. But that's just flash, icing on the cake. The Wii has something we've never seen before, and it is going to spark interest like we have not seen in a long time. Cripes, to throw a ball in Madden you actually do a throwing motion...how awesome is that? They actually made Madden somewhat fresh again. On the X360 and PS3 it's basically the same game that it was on the Playstation 1, just with fancier graphics.<br><br>
I think Nintendo is about to hit one out of the park. Everyone who says the controller is just a gimmick, or whatever, should be reminded that everyone said the same about the DS's touch screen. And the DS is the #1 selling gaming device out there...including consoles.

The wii is suppose to be for everyone; adults, kids and the hardcore gamers. This is what nintendo said and by the looks at there games here <a href="http://www.wii-preorder.com/wii-games.php?images=y" target="_blank">http://www.wii-preorder.com/wii-games.php?images=y</a> there seems to be a big variety of games for everyone.<br />
<br />
Im just wondering on how responsive the motionsensers are.

I think the "stand up and physically interact with the game" concept will be downright amazing. It's one step closer to VR. Everyone is focusing on horsepower, but Nintendo is focusing on bringing you heart and mind INTO the game. They always have. Good company.

Not to mention parents will want to get their kids the Wii, because their kids will have to interact with it, so they will be getting some physical exercise while they are playing the game, but then again, that could get annoying if the kids get to into and stuff. There is the cool feature where you can download and play old games, all the games every played on any nintendo system, if I understood everything correctly. I know at least stuff from NES and SNES.

It also makes some games look more fun to play, like tennis. I think tennis was so boring and kind of dumb (sorry to people who like to play it) but with what nintendo did to it how you use the controler as the rachet, I really want to play tennis now. Same thing with FPS I hated playing a FPS on a consol because of the controller but now I really want to play an FPS on the wii, especially red steel and the sword fighting too.

I just like new consoles if they bring something new to the table. I already have an Xbox 360 which I love. I am going to buy a Wii at launch as well as a PS3. I am gaming fanatic so one of my favorite times is when the new consoles come out. I couldn't give half a damn about how well the consoles do financially as long as they have great games. Unfortunately for the Wii its new control scheme and being somewhat underpowered compared to the 360 and PS3 is scaring away a lot of the third party developers because they have to dumb down the graphics and change gameplay entirely in order to get the game to function. I hope Nintendo really steps up to the plate in their game developement. I actually don't think that at this time Resident Evil 5 is in development for the Wii.

I read in EGM not too long ago an interview with a game developer (I can't remember which company) and he said that developing the games was extremly easy and very similar to the GC, and that they preferred it over the beefcake counterparts.

Yea I agree with you on the price there, but if you look at it the PS3 will still sell, and Sony don't have to sell as many consoles as nintendo for the same profit. Also I dont think X360 will win this gen war at all, far from it.<br><br>
If you look at the last issue of famistu (read on IGN) they say the PS3 is the most wanted <b>(58%)</b>, Wii second <b>(34%)</b> and 360 a long way behind <b>(8%)</b>, the 360 is good for its graphics over the Wii, but then they aren't as good as the PS3's (So thats second out of three (2/3)). Its games are the worst out of the three consoles as you can get most of the good ones on PC (So thats 3/3). Its pricing is good but not as cheap as the Wii (So thats 2/3). <b>It doesnt top a group!</b> The PS3 tops 1 (graphics), and the Wii tops 2 (Games, Price).<br><br><a href="http://uk.ps3.ign.com/articles/738/738629p1.html" target="_blank">Here a link to the article too</a> <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

i don't think sony is making a profit off of ps3 consoles, in fact, i think they're losing a substantial amount of money off of each sold. Then trying to make up the lost profits in game sales.

</div>Yeah, they pretty much screwed themselves over.<br />
<br />
I don't really know whether I should get the xbox 360 because I like alot their games and the graphics look awesome(I got a hdr hook-up for my graphics card to my moniter, it would look deadly on it!),or the Wii because the whole wiimote thing looks pretty cool and they're starting to change from kiddy games to games of different types...I'm going to wait until the actually comes out so I can compare them.

<br />
and the whole wireless interaction thing your actually in the game!<br />
<br />

I shall be getting it mainly because of the remote. I have my pc for all fancy graphics and my pc will outperform the ps3 and 360, its just that I can say I have been working out whilst playing super smash brothers <img src="/images/smilies/wink.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Wink" class="inlineimg" />

Not sure if something similar has been posted (kids, cover your eyes<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"> )<br><a href="http://www.lovethatfun.com/PS3_vs_Wii/702/" target="_blank">http://www.lovethatfun.com/PS3_vs_Wii/702/</a><br><br>
I will definately be getting a Wii. Mostly because I'm a Nintendo fanboy but also because I prefer Nintendo games; I leave all the hardcore gaming to my PC.
