the wii IS crap, they ignored upgrading the graphics of the system in order to try and implement their wii-mote idea, i will say this though: if the wii was such a piece of shit, why did sony and microsoft have to mimic it with move and kinect? simple, because they knew nintendo would release a new HD console that will probably have a movement system like the wii did but in HD that would surpass their systems that they do not want to make new systems for, since people are tired of buying new consoles to have games comparable to a PC counterpart.

then again, the same morons call PC gaming dead, which is only true for casual gamers.

They also did this to keep the cost point of their system down and last I check the Wii never had issues with overheating like both the 360 and PS3 had. Also the Wii is smaller then even the slim line models of both consuls. Also the Wii has sold in excess of 80 million units, so I would rate it a success.

PC gaming is FAR from dead. A true gamer doesn't use some dumb ass controller because a PC gamer will pwn his fucking face.

Opinions?

I have my personal doubts about it being "significantly more power full" than the 360 or PS3, but time will tell.
Way to easy to do, both systems where out of date when the where released. A 1080p would rock their faces and I would not be shocked if the Wii has 3D tech built in!

I'd like to see Nintendo make a proper comeback to the 'big three' consoles, but their developers seem less than inspired to work on fresh IP's that can compete with more action packed titles on the PS3/360. Their hardware is always interested but they need to keep on top of their game to survive.
66% down for the most dated system without an update? 80 million Wiis sold, a brand new 3DS that seems to be popular. I think nintendo is quite fine. They have a niche market and will stay like that.

Wait, what? 6 year old technology not capable of being surpassed? The hell?

thats what i was saying Vas...

though the best lines are ones that say the 360 and the ps3 surpass PC gaming with games like crysis 2 (which is a dumbed down version of the original graphics wise so it could work on the systems.)

People who say Cysis 2 looks better on a 360 pr PS3 play with a shit video card. I play with a GTX 470 Overclocked and it looks amazing on my system and I am not even running the top of the line or multiple GPUs.

No, I never said it was not capable, I just have my doubts about it since Nintendo has not shown anything amazing in a long time.

well the 3ds is quite cool. and nintendo NEVER makes M rated games, their games, and their systems have always been designed for family gaming, just their previous systems toped the charts for innovation for their time. the Wii, technically, fits this aswell, with movement controls that BOTH ps3 and 360 have tried to copy and improve upon to try and smother the wii.

the Wii, was never meant to outdo the ps3 or 360 in terms of power, it was designed to be a fairly cheap console, that rather then relying on powerful graphics, had a different attraction point, which was their wii-mote system. now, they have honed said tech and if they keep down that path with a new console, pouring their money into graphical tech to suppliment it into a 'new' system, then it will be amazing.

Remember: the wii, is as old as the ps3 and 360, it is the smallest, and it has always been the lowest price point out of all 3 consoles. with the things mentioned above about going for innovation over Graphical power, like the other consoles, they kept themselves in the game. but now that microsoft and PS3 are attempting to invade the wii casual gaming niche, nintendo needs to step up their game in order to get back on top.

I dont know how people can not like the 3ds, after playing one, it gets some people woozy while watching SOMEONE ELSE PLAY IT, or if they get motion sickness easily, in which they should not play with the 3D slider up that high anyway. I personally think that it might push 3d gaming out of a 'niche' setting, to be honest, once they fix multiplayer on single screen for glassesless 3d it will be amazing.

Nintendo will be good again just as soon as they stop making forced 'innovation' pushes that do nothing to further the gameplay itself and act solely as a gimmick. (See: The entirety of the DS and Wii catalogue)

I don't really care about the console, whether it be the; PS3, 360, Wii or PC. The games are what I look at. I don't own a Wii because the vast majority of it's games are as much fun as a barbed-wire colonoscopy, not because of it's subpar graphics.

Good graphics are a nice bonus, but they're not completely necessary. I'm quite happy to play a game/console with just average graphics. I don't need to be able to pick out the individual dirt grains on character's faces to enjoy the game.

If Nintendo decides to bring out some decent games I might grab one of these consoles.

When I was a young boy, I dreamed of being a baseball...
