quote: I wish more people wake up and see the Wii is nothing more than a slightly better Game Cube with a new type of controller.
quote: Everybody is going after every body these days to make a buck, and it's just a sad world when people just think the only way to make money is not to create, just sue.
quote: I don't have a problem with what console people play...but 325hhee is right that the Wii is little more than a redressed Gamecube. What's the problem? It's considered a "next gen" system when in reality it's not. People say "don't compare it to XB360 or PS3", but why not? The Wii IS Nintendo's current generation of consoles...why not compare it?
quote: The core of any game should be how fun it is to play...but innovation in terms of complexity - both graphically, sonically and interactively - are all important factors. The Wii may be fun in some cases, but it lacks the ability to compete with its counterparts in any category other than control interface.
quote: Nintendo has shown us that recycling the garbage can yield good results - but what does the future hold for a company that is 5 years behind the competition in terms of technology? Maybe the Wii console sales are doing well - but isn't it a lot more fun to play the XB360 on XB Live with your friends? To those who say "Wii is more fun to play in person with friends..." Cute, but when you get together with friends in person - do you really have nothing better to do than sit around and play video games? :P
quote: Please point me to the encyclopedia entry that defines what is "next gen" and what is not. When did "next gen" require a huge update in GPU and CPU power? Why can't "next gen" refer to brand new vastly different and (arguably) innovative forms of controlling games? Or are we just suppose to take your (and other fanboys) word that the Wii is not a "next gen" console?
quote: My argument is the graphics and processing power is important but they are tied for a close second while gameplay and by extension ways to control games is first and foremost.
quote: Nintendo recycling garbage? Umm...look at the rehashed games on other systems before you make that comment. 95% of the games industry as a whole is recycled. Nintendo actually has a very nice track record in introducing new game play types. Certainly better than Microsoft or Sony.
