Need i say more
While I enjoy the Wiimote and the general control scheme of the Wii, the only thing that keeps me playing my Wii are the games. As games like Twilight Princess, Super Paper Mario, and Super Smash Brothers are only available on Nintendo's Wii, I'm more or less stuck with the console, as I love all of these franchises.
As much as I regret to admit it, in my opinion, the Wiimote is a bit of a gimmick. In my eyes, Nintendo's only advantage over other consoles is the huge amount of game franchises and their memorable characters (Mario, Link, Samus, Donkey Kong, etc).

Well, the average person (Like me) reads stuff on Wiichat all the time.
People post views saying the wii will last, and people post views on how it will go the way of the gamecube (Fun, but blast it. Not enough good games on it.)
Both sides have become very convincing, and the average person's best bet to see who's right is to flip a coin.
In other words.... Let that 5 years roll around. Then we'll see how things are going.
I myself will have Brawl. And will be beyond content if the online mode is created successfully.
That turtle has a brief case. It must be going to work. I hope it has a good day.
Look at the direction the Wii is heading in it's topping sales worldwide and what do lot's of sales mean?
Third Party Developers begin to take note
I can see a hell of alot of quality games coming Nintendos way and even more interest from the big boys such as Rockstar and Square.
Hell even if Nintendo do flop in two years time which I can't see it myself the amount of money they would of gained from the Wii would set them up perfectly for the Nintendo Wii 2
i like some of the posts here, pretty good
and this has been discussed before though
the question is basically, will the wii prove itself that it is next gen? it seems to be riding off the cheapness of last gen prices to carry itself, much like how the ps2 is still doing great, but the ps2 will die within 2 years or so when people start wanting the ps3, when all the consoles have had price drops, and the the next gen isnt all so expensive as it is at the moment, sure the wii will be cheaper too, but a lot of people are just buying it because its the only one they know they can afford out of the next gen systems at the moment. only time will tell is the answer to this debate though, its the only answer.
Everything in this signature except for this text was made by Wiired, he is my creator and almighty.
thats interesting, care to tell me how you figured that out? Just recently sega was critising the wii and praising the ps3.Originally Posted by mushroomedmario

"I am a little concerned about the creative depth of the Wii pool" said Scott Steinberg, VP of marketing for Sega's US division. "I'm not sure if they will top out in 2008 or 2007. The Wii will start to look really dated in a couple years when developers get more value from the 360 and learn more and more about the PlayStation 3."
Namco has pretty much always been pro sony since the nintendo incident splitting sony and nintendo back in the day. They are using the PS3 Cell cpu now to power their next wave of arcade games.
Capcom is loyal really only to capcom, you fill find their bigger titles more aimed at the non wii platform where as the wii will have some of their other projects.

Their was thread that linked to some Japanese info site saying that Namco-Bandai and Sega were shifting their focus to the Wii. Personally I doubt its credibility with Sega's recent outspoken comments it does not seem logical but their have been rumors specualting that Namco-Bandai would focus more on multiplatform releases for a while now. Its no secret that several companies are starting casual games divisions and maybe that is the ultimate source of the story.Originally Posted by Shiftfallout
I don't even recall Capcom being mentioned in the article but since some of it was non translated and in Kanji I could be wrong but with their large success of Dead Rising and Lost Planet and new commitment of making their titles multiplatform I hardly doubt they would mainly focus on the wii.

Too many to type up anymore.
also with the rising cost of game developement, the age of exclusives is slowly dwindling due to the fact that multiplatforming usually brings in more profit, though often at the expense of the quality of games.
But you are right in that the console market is becoming a breeding ground for the ultra casual gamers, some often refer to this as the dumbing down of games. Which is partially true, and sadly there is a larger portion of dumbed down gamers who like those dumbed down games as compared to the non-casual market, meaning a lot of titles are being lost to the PC market.
For example, microsoft bought out digital anvil when all digital anvil was trying to do was get a publisher, then it quickly forced them to alter a few of their PC titles so it would be xbox exclusives, then sold the rights for other projects to ubisoft for working on the consoles, then after all that dismantled the company. Microsoft is vicious in how they opperate, buy out and destroy. A lot of good PC games will never see the light of day, or if they do they will be altered for the casual gamer on the console platform. This is why we probably wont see another great game like Freelancer again.
Similar things happened at interplay where they all but destroyed Black Isle, famous for their Baldurs Gate series of RPGs. Probably the most amazing RPG to ever be created, aslo they are known for Fallout 1 and 2. Best sci fi rpg ever to be made, Bethesda (of Elderscroll Fame) is making Fallout3, and a fallout mmorpg is also in the works. (talked with the director if interplay, a bit trying to get a movie deal going, thats also in the works). But the point of this is that interplay fired all of the black isle staff and replaced them with console developers who made some creally crappy console only titles using the Baldurs Gate name, even though it was nothing more than a hack n slash. Even SOE's psp rpg was more detailed than that.
Same can be said when comparing the move from Morrowind to Oblivion. The sequel, Oblivion, was so much more simplified, dumbed down than Morrowind, it was sick. This was done for mass console appeal while sacrificing what made Morrowind great.
So there is money to be made in the casual gamer side of consoles, lets just hope it doesnt drown us though or else the games we get will be crap compared to what they could should be.
