    who first used an analog stick? Nintendo. Who first introduced vibration? Nintendo.

    Who first introduced motion-sensing technology? Nintendo (and not even with the Wii, mind you)

    everyone else has always had to play catch-up in that regard, and not always to quite the level they could...Sony quickly debuted their Sixaxis controller soon after the Wii-mote was introduced, but in their haste, there is no rumble feature on Sixaxis.

    so keeping all that in mind, Microsoft and Sony have to have -something- that makes their system better than the others. X360 boasts probably the best processor, graphics, and overall power, Sony while having slightly less power has their online features available for no charge, and Nintendo has the worst graphics but easily the most interactive interface scheme, broadest demographics (pure speculation there), and other features that the others just don't have, or can't have as good as wii.

    long story short, they each have their pros and cons...graphics is just one of many variables to consider when choosing which console is the one you want...it's up to you to weigh them -all- out and pick which ones are important to you...and choose accordingly.

    Cheers!
    much agreed, I use my 360 and ps3 for awe inspiring graphics and my wii when i just want to kick back and play minigames. That is by far my favorite thing about the Wii is it's minigame collections. Sometimes I don't always have time to watch a movie and get deep into characters, I just want to turn it on and have some fun for 15 minutes before work. Not to mention the DS is by far the best handheld.

The multiplayer on halo 3 (while it is just a upscaled version of halo 2's) is addicting and I haven't been able to put it down since.

    Also can you provide a link to show where Bungie called gamers "idiots".
    Fanboy? Not hardly. Actually, I have many more complaints regarding the Wii than I do the X360, and neither come close to the PS3 (I own all 3). Halo 3 was advertised as being the "end all" of FPS's, and it didn't even manage to get close. If a game can't even eke out a mediocre single-player campaign, what good is multiplayer? What would make you think I may be offended by you having an opinion? I'll find that link...

    But it seems their response is more tongue-in-cheek than what was reported by a "supposed" Bungie rep at Beyond3D.
    Chances are good that I'm a LOT older than you.

    That Atari 5200 in 1982 had an analog joystick. So did the Vectrex from the same year.

    And about the topic, whether or not the Wii has an amazing graphics card or not, games created by Nintendo will always be distinguished in a good way. But most games created by third party companies don't always try to be artsy despite the graphics for the Wii; they just want to make a quick buck. The Wii isn't for graphics, it's for creativity and innovation, not just for "fun".
    actually PS2 was the weakest system in terms of hardware.
    PM to add me to Wii and from there we can add different games!

    i think what he meant was that nintendo used a thumb joystick and not a full blown joystick. which if you tink about it, give two different experences of gameplay

    i agree with the 1st post, developers dont need to spend as much time on polygons with wii, more so artwork, background, detail, etc. i have a ps3 so im not gonna act like 1080p dosent look amazing, but from developing stand point would u rather make a shirt and spend time getting the best fabric and such or spend time putting designs on it.

    One negative thing about the Wii, is that developers took the "graphics aren't that important" thing too seriously, and now you can nearly compare several Wii games with N64 games (exagerated, but you get the point). The Wii can have visually appealing graphics, as retro studios have proven, but we are yet to see 3rd party graphics which you can look at and say "wow". Developers haven't noticed, we need good graphics, but they don't need to be 360 or PS3 level graphics.

    You keep saying things that don't have any backing. Where was it advertised by Bungie to be the end of all FPS's? I know people outside of Bungie and Microsoft such as G4 and Spike may have said things like that but I'm pretty sure the commercials just said "believe" mostly. So please stop saying things that you can't prove. I went to that link, press "ctrl+f" and typed in idiot.. you guessed it, it never came up. If you mean it gave an explanation why it was in 640p, then yes, they did provide that, but I see no forward comments about it.

    I'm also bewildered by you saying the single-player was less than mediocre. What? I don't think so. If you mean it wasn't a "revolution in gaming" like you expected then yes, call it what you'd like. But tons of people would argue otherwise. I work at a store that sells video games and when people come in and talk to me about games, they talk about Halo. I've only heard a couple of complaints about the graphics needing to be better, but as far as the single player is concerned, everyone agrees. A good end to a good game. I've heard that comment over and over again. However what halo is really best at is the multiplayer. I don't know how you call down the multiplayer. I don't know how you can really bash a game at all until you release a game that makes 170million in the first day. Break that record and come back and lay down some smack talk. Metroid and Halo are good in their own ways and to simply bash one or the other just shows ignorance.

    So you're saying that the Gamecube could've put out better graphics compared to the PS2?

    true true...correct me if I'm wrong, but while the Atari had a joystick I believe it was a in fact a digital 8-direction joystick, basically a d-pad with a stick...and I'm not familiar with Vectrex so I can't say one way or another...

    to further add to the point, I also did not mention at all that the Intellivision's controller has a circular pad that reads input in any of its 360-degree area...but also consider that after the Intellivision's all-too-short lifespan, sure there were joysticks, but nothing like what was introduced with the N64 controller.

    but no matter who or when any stick was in the industry prior to N64, it's tough to explain in hindsight the absence of such technology other than either it simply did not exist or that it was not financially feasible to make in such a mainstream fashion until Nintendo brought it back again (in the first place, if you will)...add to that the Rumble Pack, and then note Sony's all too quick response, the twin-stick DualShock controller...which even though Sony's was better, Nintendo's was -first-.

    Cheers!
