Hi there its frey,
Now we all know nintendo is playing it smart by keeping the old with some of the new in it with its wiimote, however what if the dreamcast problem happens to the wii?
if you are old enough you will remember the dreamcast and how it was, in fact, a great system and was beating the ps2 in its first year because of the CD player making the system cheap and with better graphics for the time being. However the system died in the long haul because of its weaknesses, which being, not having DVD games. Now think about nintendo, this time they decided to stick with DVD and last gens power(the wii is a bit more powerful than an Xbox right now, for the time being) but held up the downs with the remote. However, we see right now microsoft is upgrading to blue ray on its xbox 360s and with ps3 with blueray(crappy games though). Blue rays hold more Game than an average DVD. Which could mean alot of good games made in the year 2009-10 will be non wii accessable, then the division between the three will grow, As for me graphics aren't what i'm worried about, i'm worried about xbox360 and ps3 making big huge games which are more powerful(dont care about graphics) than wii could be. So i think the wii will have to have more support from us fans to keep it going, do it for your wii! and dont let it turn into another dreamcast.
Now for the discussion, post ways nintendo could make the system keep its style and sheen for the 5-6 year race for console king.
Heres what I think they should do.
Make A Mii online game that rivals home.
Make The virtual channel games have Kaillera esque online to their games, i mean come on, if some amateurs can do it, so can nintendo.
More use for the wiimote: Make games that cater to the wiimotes uniqueness, maybe a game like spore for the wii.
Keyboard for the wii Anyone?
(more to come later)
Note to readers this is in no way insulting the wii, nor is it promoting the other 2, im just saying that I would not like the problem that happened to the dreamcast to happen with nintendo. So please dont flame.
