As I'm sure all have you have heard right now, the playstation three has been delayed four months in europe. I just can't wait that long, I feel let down by sony but that is neither here nor there.
I am now looking at the other options, those being Wii and 360. I think I am going to get Wii for the simple fact that I'm going to get a DS and I like the whole complete gaming feeling I get. Forgive me this is partial lazyness on my part but I'd like you to give me reasons as to why I should get a Wii over a 360, right about now I am nothing more than curious about the controller.
I also have a few concerns:
when I come in from a hard days work and I want to relax and play games I don't want to have to wave, shake my hand all over the place just to play a game, not disputing that it's not a great idea but it seems as though alott of the games will require some form of movement from me. Can someone tell me if this is the case and if so explain why there I will be able to enjoy playing games without my wrist aching lol
I am also concerned that the control is nothing more than a novelty, can I be sure that developers will consistantly be bringing in new ideas to keep it intresting?
Diversity, this for me has been nintendo's biggest problem since the n64, they are good no great at what the do but there is no real sense of diversity in there games. Name a good racing simulater (i.e. Gran Turismo, Project Gotham), I think nintendo need more third part support this generation, it needs more diversity.
I feel in the last generation, gamecube got left behind, it got to the point where I'm not even sure if gamecube games where on the shelf in average stores. How do I know Wii won't just fritter away like the gamecube did, maybe GC didn't do as bad I thought, in terms of sales can anyone roughly tell me how good/bad it did.
Is the link between DS and Wii going to be better thand GC and GBA (because I didn't feel this was utilized to it's full potential at all)... Considering how well DS is selling I would hope that the potential was fully fulfulled.
Graphics...while nintendo fans all say what would you rather have good game or good graphics, I think this is partially niave, the two go hand in hand, one contributes to the other... Granted gameplay is more important but I just get the feeling that nintendo fans undermine the importance of graphics, to me it's graphics that can truly create an awesome atmosphere e.g. Final Fantasy VII the first cut scene with the train riding round into the city (for those who have played the game know what I am talking about). Exactly how far behind is the Wii to the ps3 and 360, I didn't feel that the GC was that far behind ps2, infact I'm not even sure if it was behind at all...
Reasonable feedback, answers to my questions would be appreciated, also I don't mind how technical you want to get with specs and what not I am pretty well tuned.
