    Sony: Wii Nothing More Than 'Impulse Buy'

    Sony lashes another insult at Nintendo... but I'm not sure it can even be called an insult.

    i started to post a thread about this too. but every time i do i get accused of "ps3 bashing". so anyway, yeah thats garbage. sony is full of complete idiots. theyre just pissed because their console is failing to the company practically started it all. im proud of nintendo for getting back into this. their console is going to smoke the rest of them in sales. and its half the power, but twice the brilliance.

    i love it.

    I think they're just trying to insinuate that the Wii's success will only be for the short term (temporary) and that over time it'll get edged out by what Sony believe to be more superior gaming consoles.

    I dont believe the Wii to be a gimmick or an impulse buy, but it's early days for the console so who knows in what way consumers will shift.

    yep. and the only way it will get edged out is if the price falls waaaaaay down. and even then i doubt it. the wii has brought people into gaming that havent picked up a controller since the nes, girls, grandmas, you name it. i think most people are tired of using their thumbs and want to start using some real coordination. and it is just so intuitive.

    yea... go on to ebgames or the like and look to see how many stores are within 10-20 miles of your own home carrying 4+ consoles @ $600.

    Bitter words from a captain sailing a sinking ship. Or at least an old one thats seen all the adventure the captain believes to be out there to sail and see.

    That's exactly what they were going at. They think people hear about Wii and buy it expecting to have a lot of fun with just Wii Sports, which is kind of true, but I'm sure Wii owners are starting to see that Wii can do more than just simple games like Wii Sports.

    Sony is like a 7 year old in a fight. They make lame insults and are scared out of their minds.
