I gotta ask, other than the fact that you can download old Nintendo games to this, what else would make the sales of this machine sky-rocket?

Personally, I think that the controller will drive a lot of people away. God knows I don't want one. We're used to a specific kind of game. Hell, when XBOX came out, they had to make that bohemoth of a controller smaller because most of us complained. Other than that, the XBOX really didn't re-invent the wheel as far as controllers went.

It took the trigger and R-L button idea from Nintendo 64. The joystick idea from Playstation, added two extra buttons of their own and wala!!

Nintendo, I think, with this system took an awful risk because they tried to re-invent the wheel.

Gamers are used to a specific kind of controller. 2-HANDS!!! It's the way we were raised for cryin' out loud. I think they did this out of spite for the PS2 basically puttin' the 64 out of business.

Off the record, I'm gettin' another 64, because GoldenEye, Starfox and Perfect Dark are the shit.

Anyway, I was excited about the new Nintendo until I saw that controller. I'm not saying they won't make ANY money, I just think Sony will make a lot more because they thought about the consumer.

Nintendo.com will teach you what you need to know about everything wii. You use two hands for the controller by the way, its not just one hand.

What you fail to realize Shrop is that the Wii is indeed gonna utilize the use of both hands.
http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/e/e9/Wiimote_nunchuk.jpg
One hand on the remote the other on the stick.
And then there's always the option of the classic controller.
http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/f/f2/Wii_05.jpg/800px-Wii_05.jpg
I'm sure a lot of developers are gonna put that to use. And the final design for the controller has a slot to connect the remote to the back. Hence giving the classic controller just as much functionality (if not more) then the PS3's SIXAXIS controller which can't pull off the same ammount of motion that the wii remote does on it's own.

I understand you're not a big Nintendo fan and that's cool. But before you shit on the system, do some research dawg.

And you're right about Sony making more money. But it's not because it thought about the consumer. It's because you can buy 2 Wii's for the price of one PS3.

ha! a PS3 fused with the george forman thing well for the launch in the uk we're hoping;

Tony Hawks project 8
fatal internia
the darkness
resistance: fall of man
assassins creed
bulletproof
battlefield
NFS carbon
untold legends

there's probably some more but I can't remember them at the mo. And I'm not definately sure that will be the lineup but most of those games have been in development for a years so there's no reason why they shouldn't be launch titles

PS3 Ain't Finished, Firmware Updates On Launch Day (http://www.kotaku.com/gaming/ps3/ps3-aint-finished-firmware-updates-on-launch-day-213531.php)

http://www.kotaku.com/assets/resources/2006/11/halfbakedlobster.jpg Those lucky few able to get a PS3 in Japan on launch day will have a pleasant surprise when that get that panini maker out of the box: A firmware update. Yep, Sony's Japanese site released a press release stated that there will be a software update on November 11th to allow "customers to be able to utilize the Playstation Network functions." Hmmm. Firmware updates to fix bugs and add features on the day the product is launched? Two-words: half baked. Brian Ashcraft

WTF is sony doing? They're pretty lucky that they have such a big brand name.

I"ll be trying to get the PS3 next week. My brother has Xbox 360 and most of the games so far have been shitty. Madden 2007 for 360 is a joke. And only fantasy losers who got picked on in highschool will buy the Nintendo Wii.

I guess over 4 million people are fantasy losers (What the hell does that mean?) cause I am one of them. Zelda hear I come.

I dont think middle-school kids can say they grew up on Zelda, plus pay for a wii. You hatin on something you didnt play yet. Thats sad.

Nintendo makes kids games. C'mon Zelda? And kids don't buy the system, their parents do.

In my experience kids want violence, and that would mean xbox360 is the system for kids.

What's funny is that most of the people out there copping a PS3 on launch are gonna be playing their PS2 games on it anyway :)
