    It's not boring yet though... I've had it since the beginning of February too and I just got RE4 which is AMAZING! Never played it on the GameCube though, but I love the controls... aim guns with the Wiimote is just as good as using a mouse... Actually its better!

    200 dollars per Wii means Nintendo should be loosing money on the Wii currently if you take advertising costs into account. I think they are eating into DS profits to support the Wii!
    of course
    they do have to make up for development costs (not very high at all) and advertisements (again..not that high, they just show asian people going over peoples houses and playing the wii)
    every console has to do that

    What percentage of Wii owners own something besides the Wii-nunchuck that came in the box (or additional Wii-nun combos)?

    If it isn't 100%, then the Wii is limited by its controller. If a developer has to expect people to pay an extra 20$ (for CC or wavebird) to be able to play their game, their sales go down. If a developer can only depend on those who already own the extra controller (smaller installed user base), their potential sales have an extra limit.

    To wit--the wiimote is the Wii's primary selling point. If you're developing a game (Short of some sort of cheap downloadable content) that begs not to use the wiimote, you're deving for the wrong system.

    I dont see ANY other console having the option to use 3 different types of controllers does PS3? umm no, xbox 360 ummm no...

    ummmmmmm ya dude i realize it can
    but how many games have you seen on the wii that DONT use motion controls? none.
    ohh wow 3 different controllers, THATS SOOO COOL!!!! i wish every console had 3 controllers so we would have to buy them all and have to constantly switch between them. the games would have last gen graphics and would play like last gen games, there would be no point in even putting them on the wii. youre clearly not intelligent

    This man is dead on. Rep'd

    Oh and its not true about Australia. The markup is essentially the same. Australia is the most import friendly "Western" country around. If what he said was true I could make serious bank importing US products and selling at half the markup they give.

    I dont know where this came from but its a weak argument. "Yay nintendo forces me to buy 3 different controllers to use all the functions of the console. I like giving all of my money away."
    I see this as a WEAKNESS
    Besides other consoles offer MANY controller options. What about all the dancepads and guns?
