    I love my Wii to bits

    Really Really enjoy playing it

    I hope it's just a blip and soon it will rise to the top again

    I don't really care that I DON'T own one.... BUT.... I would actually like to buy one and probably will very soon. My kid is getting older and I want to play some games with him. It will never take the place of my PS3 or 360, not unless some serious overhauls are done to their lineup, but it might be a nice system to play with sometimes.

    edit: I did always say that the wii was enjoying a Honeymoon stage, and as soon as the veil came off, even the most hardcore would see the demon spawn underneath

    have it, love it.

    that article (like all game related things at yahoo) is just stupid. they're acting like it's going to fail because the sales evened out.

    yeah, wii music and animal crossing did badly. wii music is meant for VERY young children. young children that don't really care about wii music, because they're playing guitar hero or rock band or eating bugs in the back yard. animal crossing just lacked content. I love the series, played the DS one for a solid year, but the Wii game is just empty compared to the GC and DS games.

    nintendo can't support the console on their own, just like sony and microsoft can't support their consoles on their own. the third parties have to step up with the Wii, and they are starting to. it's just a damn shame it took this long.

    PC > PS3 > 360 = Wii

    I'd say that seems about right, IMO.

    Never saw the big deal. Can't stand playing the thing, it's not nearly precise enough and the fact that my hands shake ever-so-slightly make it even more annoying for me.

    I have a Wii and I would say it has a smaller library of games I care about then the other consoles, and if I had to choose 1 console, it wouldn't be it. But, I feel like Nintendo has treated all the last 3 consoles they've made this way, making themselves the only real important game developer for their system with some small exceptions. So, I'm not surprised. I do care though, since I will always have a soft spot for Nintendo.

    I care a lot about my Wii!

    What I don't care about however, is all the games flooding the market. It's just so hard to find a good solid title for the thing IMO

    I enjoy mine but it's been a big letdown recently. I mean Animal Crossing and Wii Music? C'mon. The "hardcore" are definitely being ignored in regards to the Wii.

    But Punchout and The Conduit are coming out soon so I'll probably have to retract my previous statement. :drool:

    Hmmm, probably ps3=360>PC>Wii. Got sick of adding to my PC everytime something new came out, and since most games are made for minspec, you never really see the true potential. That and developers stick to safe FPS unreal engine shooters, which grew stale when I beat Doom 3 on my PC.
