    Give Me Reason

    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.

    Dont waste your money on a 360 or ps3. Wii is cheapest and is the only "real next gen console" in my opinion cause ps3 and 360 are just upgrades on processors and graphics cards from their previous versions.

    Well I must admit the 360 does have better graphics than the Wii would have but as you said gameplay is more important. IMO i'm happy with the graphics as they are now (I didnt like the GC graphics) and I feel that they dont need to get anymore better.
    With the third party you are right again by Nintendo havibng to get more third party developers. But its the original games I look for (by taht I mean original) like a Mario Game(Galaxy), SSBB, and the rest of the Mario collection games.
    And the bit about you wanting to rest into of getting a sore wrist well I dont think that would be much concern as you might get a sore wrist maybe in 2 hours or so but you shouldnt be on the console for more than that.

    So overall as Im getting a Wii i'd say get the Wii!

    Characters wanted for SSBB : King K.Rool, Lucario, Bubsy, Captain Olimar and Waluigi
    Clippers -- Buccaneers -- Ducks -- Devil Rays

    I'd say the best way to go is like me, for top end graphics, FPS, racing games have a PC with reasonably priced high end components, update once a year or every second year.
    If you have a LCD tv you can also build a HTPC with all the goodies and power enough to run games at 1360x768 (got that too )

    Then I just must have all the cool stuff available on the market but I will never be paying full launch prices for something like a Xbox or PS, (got neither)
    Nintendo's consoles are cheap and fantastic entertainment for single play and even more fun to play local multiplayer, Mario Kart, Mortal kombat, Track and Field2 these are games that have really long term value so you can invite some friends over to drink beer and retro it up with your old NES or newer nintendos.

    I bought the PSP for 300 just because I wanted to play good quality 3D games on a handheld but that was a bit of a dissapontment since they look ok but loading times from the disc are a real pain.
    I got the DS a week before launch day in Finland and this machine is something I can pick up, play some mario kart, new super mario or anything else for a hour or so and then put it down and still be interested in playing again day after day, PSP has been lying next to my bed untouched for many months now cause the games just arent that catchy, and starting up the PSP takes as long as booting my computer.

    So I'd say get the DS, the Wii and a decent computer for all the fun in the world, what sony and M$ is trying to do is make the gaming computer obsolite with their fancy graphics but this will never happen, practically both consoles are crippled PC:s that they try to sell with their Halo exclusives and bull like that, if they need to depend on high end PC components why not make the consoles upgradable so you don't need to buy a new one for 500-700$ every second year.

    Nintendo has the real magic that makes console gaming fun, and so did the Dreamcast with the fishing rod and lightguns (too bad they killed it)
    while keeping the price at reasonable levels.

    Get the Wii, you wont regret it.

    Personally I'd recommend getting a Wii mainly for its new innovations such as the Wiimote and Wii Connect 24, which could change the way video games are made forever. Already the line-up is packed full of some very interesting games. There's the added bonus of the Virtual Console, which should be home to some old classics. As for having to wave your hands about a lot, I wouldn't worry too much- most gameplay footage I've seen so far requires little arm movement.

    By the way, if money isn't an issue, I would say get an Xbox 360 as well.

    Your hands will not get tired, yuo will not even notice the fact that your waving the controoler. Your mind will be focused on the games...
    The games I play today get my fingers and hands tired... lol
    I play my brothers ps2 with him, their is only one game I play on it. Pride fighting championships. That game you got constantly tap buttons to get out of submissions! It is fun but tiring... Also on my GameCube I play ultiamate Muscle. One of the funnest games eveR! This game can be tiring on your fingers... I must make it clear I hate sony just about, Ps2 was a mediocre system to me, Gamecube was much better than ps2. Xbox was the worst to me. Gamecube did need more third party titles, but there is and was plenty of fun games for it. It was the best console... Dreamcast was better than ps2 to me but sadly it did not do to well...
    But yeah don't worry about your hands gettign tired, they won't nintendo would never release something that you could not play...
