    I just don't like the Wii...
    It seems very repetitive to me.

    I like nintendo.

    but yeah basically they won this and last generation.

    atleast profit wise.

    Companies don't care how much they sell, they care how much they make.

    I used to love Nintendo games...they were great.

    But then I grew up...now I play gut-wrenching games like Gears of War and Devil May Cry.

    The Wii was a cool concept, but it got old really fast.

    Well, if everyone wants to buy a Wii, more power to nintendo, I still think the PS3 and the 360 are better, and thats my personal opinion.

    Not sure buddy, lets see how long the Wii can last. Gamecube sold a lot when it first came out but it crashed in the end... Im sure the Wii wont do that because of the DS, but seriously Nintendo is tiny compare to Sony or MS.

    Sorry not true, PS2 raped last gen... Sure DS did good, but it really wasn't that much compare to the PS2... And even currently PS2 sells a lot. PS2 only reason why Sony is so strong.




    Seriously Wii isn't that great... You want some motion sensing, MS made one of those way back in the days... I mean just look at Wii's graphic, sure Wii sport is good but what other Wii game is good at all? And Mario Party 1-8 is getting old... Same with constant remakes. At least PS33 and 360 games got a whole lot better AI and looks pretty on your HD TV, and aren't exactly remakes.

    So in conclusion, all console going to do good, but the PS3 is not leading thats one thing for sure... Wii and 360 just hit the PS3 to hard, Wii with the much cheaper price which attracts the casual gamers, and the 360 with the cheaper price + much bigger library game attract the so called hardcore gamers.

    I'm talking per unit profit/overall, not sales. Just look at the stock prices.
    do realize the N makes software titles as well.

    I must say I am not such a big fan of the Wii, but Nintendo is absolutly the best. I love the Gamecube and N64 and also the Gameboys/ Ds

    I'm loyal to Nintendo Through and Through.

    I owned a N64 at the age of 4 (I was born in '93), I had a Gameboy Colour, GBA, GBA SP, DS, DS Lite, Gamecube, and now I own a Wii.

    However, I own a PSP and a PS2. I will get a PS3 halfway through my Wii's lifespan, if I was to follow what I did last generation.

    I'm thinking '08 will be a good year for Wii. Better titles, much better graphics (Twice the Gamecube is still a significant amount of power.).

    And by '09, or perhaps 2010, I will either get an Xbox 720 or a PS3.

    Yeah im sure of that. I have a wii myself and I must say the games u can buy now aren't that great. Sure there are a couple nice games like the GodFather (got it myself). Zelda (got it also) and Excite Truck (got it to) but the rest is kinda ''meh''. Althought I think DBZ is pretty cool though. And recently ''Mario Strikers Charged Footbal'' came out and u can play it on Wi-Fi and I must say, I absolutly love it, I bought it and I play everynight a couple games on Wi-Fi.

    The games wich are coming are some great ones tho; Mario Party 8, Super Mario Galaxy and what to think of Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. Maybe even Mario Kart, those are promising titles!

    IMO nintendo is very good for its cost, but definetly has lower quality compared to xbox and ps3.

    I honestly think Xbox is going to rise above everything.

    lol the sad truth is 30% of people bought the wii for Zelda Twilight Princess

    I dunno.is it just me or does after like after 15hours into the game,,Does the actual gameplay start to become boring?????
    Minus the motion sensing..I see the same gameplay as it was on N64

    is it suppose to be one the best looking games on the wii so far?
    If so....It just wont do for me...
    star wars battlefront 2 with a nvidia256mb 5500 looks better :(

    Only game i've really really wanted for wii is super smash bros brawl(online will be sweet),,, in my opinion super smash bros melee was the best game for gamecube

    gaming with motion sensing is cool and all but, its not all its hyped up to be in my opinion

    Anyways, the wii will always be on top since it is the cheapest
    in 3 years well have some new technology by nintendo then the wii will be forgotten (like the gamecube is now) and a new fad will be started

    dhar13...

    Zelda isn't the best looking game, but wait for Super Mario Galaxy, and you'll see;)
