Is the Wii the most popular video game system right now? Maybe it's just me, but using those remote and controller things looks pretty corny to me. Maybe if I wanted to play a game with my grandmom, that might be alright, but otherwise.. Are a bunch of the games geared to kids such as tons of different Mario and Mario Kart games? My bad if I'm making generalizations, but how is the system and the variety of games much different than a Gamecube, except for better graphics?

i tought the same before i went to my friend's house and tried it. its not like in the commercial where they be bouncing their arms everywhere and shit. u barelly need to move ur hand to control the nunchuk. and its not all kids games theres tons of adult games out there if u consider yourself to mature to play mario kart. maybe its not for u, but i just say go try it and if u really dont like it go get raped and buy a 2000$ TV and a 500$ console

the system is intended for casual gamers. It has probably the best 1st party games out of the 3 right now. The graphics aren't that better than the 360 or ps3. Wii sports is fun to play with friends. the new super smash brother game is going to be one of the games you must have for the wii. (has snake from mgs and sonic in the game)

I don't know why it has so much attention, but I have one. Only reason I bought it was for Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

The Wii got alot of hype because it followed a different route than the PS3 and X360. Instead of just upgrading the graphics the Wii changed the way you control your console. I can't play a FPS on anything other than with the Wii or with a mouse and keyboard.

Anyway, if you think Nintendo is kiddy it's probably not for you. See, I don't really care what a game looks like, as long as it's fun. I've been playing graphic games with alot of violence since I was 8 years old, and I'm just not surprised anymore if I see a 1000 bodies blown their heads off.

It's also more of a console you play with friends, and as said, bitches love the Wii. There are a few singleplayer games which are fun though.

Well said...It was going to be called : The Nintendo Revolution...
And it IS a revolution > The Wii is the shit!!!!!!!!
I can't begin to count how many "Goldeneye-Esc" games the 360 has
Or is going to bring out ????
The Wii is versitlie it can produce sharp life like graphics...granted not as good as
The other 2 contenders but check out the Resident Evil games for it...
And that Day Of Crisis. It is pure fun to play...Thats what it is all about isn't it ?
I played Gears Of War, which I thought was messy but it took me ages & AGES
To clock all of the controls.Compare this to The Legend Zelda:Twilight Princess...
It is sick the amount of things Link can do and the items ect...
All easily controled with the REMOTE!!!!
The Wii the pinical of what a computer is all about!!!!!
Nintendo been doing this LONG before Sony & Mirosoft.
But I'm still looking to get a PS3 just to compare and play LittleBigPlanet!!!!!!!!!!
That game looks silly.

Well I would consider myself more of a casual gamer, as I've gotten older over the years. One of the game themes I tend to like are sports games. Doesn't the Wii even have NBA 2K8 out for it's system? You would think it would, since it's been the most popular basketball video game for several years now. I saw that the Wii has NBA Live 08, and Game Site(videogames.com) gave it a 3.0 out of 10 rating, which is horrible. The same site gave both the PS3 and X Box 360 versions of NBA Live 08, a 7.5 rating.

Actually the systems that are geared to kids are the 360 and the PS3, cause kids feel big by playing GTAs and shit. (don't get me wrong GTAs are classics), I just observed around me that those who own a wii are over 25 in majority, while I see many kids with the 360 that will tell their friends wii is for kids....
Wii got some classics already: metroid, Mario galaxy, RE 4 etc and once the system will really be mastered by developers I think we'll be able to expect the best.

nintendo has always - and will always be basicly for children, they are the only thing keeping mario's heart beating. Wii is a invention created by the uliminati to curb the obesity problems in our youth - who's gunna fight our world war 3 in 2012 ? tell me that ! not fatty fat fats that cant even eat without sweating or gasping *is reminded of eD*

Hahaha, same here. £20 for a chip, fitted it myself and that's it! No more spending needed. I can even rent/borrow games and copy them if I want as I've got a special dvd drive for my pc!

I walked past the huge queue of 300-400 people waiting outside Game for the launch of Mario, and they were all between about 18 and 35.

And I'm 26 and have a Wii. So do several of my mates, aged 27, 28, 31 and 35. It actually seems that often Nintendo games are played but an older crowd than some other consoles, because they have matured beyond the age of thinking it's childish to play x and real men play y.

For some reason, someone decided that to be an adult you have to want to play only realistic looking games and be into pretending to be a gangsta or whatever. Personally (and maybe it's all the shrooms and mesc I've done) I'm quite happy going off into a trippy world of bright colours that doesn't look like what's going on outside my window.

Funny thing is, even if you are into that 'playing at being a big man' type of thing, the Wii has Scarface, Giodfather and Manhunt 2. It also has games like Medal Of Honor, Brothers In Arms, Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles, Resident Evil 4, Pro Evolution Soccer, Madden NFL, Tiger Woods....

Oh yeah, the funny thing about the view that Wii gives you loads of exercise is only as true as you want it to be. You can act like you're doing it for real (playing tennis or whatever) or you can basically lie down and barely have to move at all. Rather than having your back kinda hunched to hold a controller, you can have your two hands roughly at your sides making things far more comfortable.

I have all 3 systems. And I played most of the games. I have the wiikey in my shit too. So, here is the breakdown imo. Someone said that halo 3 and cod 4 is better than anything on the wii right now. Wrong!!!! You are so wrong. If the wii have a great online like 360, it would be number 1 in my book. So, Cod4 in general, is the best game this year. Super mario galaxy is second, halo 3 is not even in the top 5 for me.

I personally feel that the 360 is number 1 followed by the wii then the ps3.

I've played all three, and the Wii is probably the most fun. That being said, I would probably go with a 360 because PS3 has been pretty bad thus far....But my favorite games were the NBA lives and Maddens and college footballs and MVP baseball.....
but now all these games suck dick on 360. Madden is horrible...
They definitely went downhill with the sports games.

the whole halo 3 thing is THE reason 360 and xbox blew up. People buy those things for that game and thats it. Altho i hear cod4 IS fuckin sick...but those are the type of games that you get 360 for.

it does surprise me that the wii i kicking ass like it is. but i wouldnt wanna go spend an arm and a leg for the other two systems either. the wii is under $300, their franchise titles are awesome, and the interactive game play with the remote can make for a fun activity at a social event.

I have to say that I am proud to not call myself a HARDCORE GAMER. Fuckin hell that basically makes you sound like the sadest little cunt on the planet. I'm hardcore into making beats, lyrics, socialising with real people face to face, sex.... I haven't been 'hardcore gamer' since I was the age range you seem to think Nintendo fans are.

Besides, if I wanted a game like Halo or Call Of Duty, I'd just play Crysis on my pc. Pc was always better for first person games anyway.

nintendo has been good at keeping their prices low.

when the cube, PS2 and xbox were first dropping nintendo had a price tag of $200 while ps2 and xbox were going for $300(i think xbox was going for $350). i always thought the dvd add on was a forced expense being that you're paying an extra $100/$150 for it. a gamecube gamer could go out an buy a DVD player if he wanted to for the same price if not cheaper and come out even with people buying ps2 and xbox.

Yeah, but concerning PS3 and the Blu Ray DVD player that comes with it... I saw at Best Buy's site, that the cheapest Blu Ray DVD player they had was like $300. Most of them cost more than that, with some going really high. I don't really care much myself if the PS3 has a Blu Ray DVD player or not. Though for people that are into that kind of stuff, the PS3 then wouldn't sound like that high of a price.

hmm,

whats the difference between the blu ray and a regular old DVD player?

Honestly, I don't know a whole lot about the Blu Ray DVD players. lol Though, they are supposed to have like 6 times better picture resolution than a regular DVD player, and also better sound quality.

What's with all the Blu stuff? Blu tooth? Blu ray? etc.

anybody that buys a PS3 is a fuckin doofus.


it's like 700 dollars for what? really real looking DVDs


DvDs already look too fuckin real

then after you notice there's no good games made for it, and there's only like 8 movies worth watching these days...you'll notice your a slut.


the Wii is cool cause it's fun

i like the final fantasy series and all the other role playing games playstation has always had but not at that price. i already have a DVD player and the hard drive is unnecessary, should've stuck with the memory cards.

didnt the prices drop for all 3 systems?

Bloo
12-11-2007, 05:11 AM
Kinda sorta.

Well Nintendo hasn't bothered to drop the price cause they feel that the system is priced just fine, not to mention it's still selling like hotcakes at the price it's at so why change it.

Sony and Microsoft on the other hand took a different approach, instead of just dropping the price of the existing hardware, they released stripped down versions of each console. Those being the 40Gig PS3 and the Xbox 360 Arcade.

12-12-2007, 12:54 AM
The 40 GB PS3 is $400, not $700. lol I remember getting the PS2 for $300 early on, so that's not a whole lot of difference in price. I've heard about how a lot of X Box 360's have been breaking down? That ring of death thing, or whatever it's called? lol I guess for the time being, it's Nintendo's time to shine. Since the PS1 easily beat Nintendo 64 in sales, and the PS2 killed the Gamecube in sales.
