The truth of the matter is that the wii apeals to EVERYONE, not just SO CALLED HARDCORE GAMERS.
lmao @ Hardcore gamers btw.
What exactly is a hardcore gamer? Someone who only plays FPS games? Someone who only plays Violent games? Someone who doesnt play nintendo games?
The term "Hardcore Gamer" is total cack, at the age of 36 I own a wii (YES FOR MYSELF), the wife bought me one for xmas last year (I wanted one for launch but she was a crafty sod and told me she couldent get one, even though she got one 1 week after release).
Do I own a 360 or a PS3? do I f**k! The reason for this is that if I want to play the types of games for those systems then id use the machine that im using to type this message on, MY PC.
Oh yeah, some dumb idiot mentioned the 360 online community, OMG, did you know that at any one time there are probably more people playing Counter Strike (A game that is over 5 years old) than there are playing all 360 games online put together.
If I want online gameplay the PC wins without even breaking a sweat.
Fact: In only 1 year the wii has sold 13 million units, and it doesnt look like stopping.
Fact: When Mario Strikers Charged was released in europe, 400,000 matches were played online in its first weekend (ONLINE gaming is already here for wii).
Fact: In 2 years, the XB360 has sold 13 million units with the first 10 million selling in its first year, which means only 3 million sales for year 2.
Fact: Its not even worth mentioning the PS3, its dead in the water and if sony are not cearful it will end up like the DC.
Fact: Res Evil 4 for the wii has sold more units than for any other platform (Please note, its a violent game).
Fact: The wii is the UK's fastest selling games console EVER.
