I am not saying HD graphic is bad, it is just that HD have been overrated in games. I mean, for movie, all you do is to watch it, then of course HD is important. For game, you don't just watch it, you actually play it, so there are other factors besides HD graphics.Originally Posted by Big_League_Slugger
Different console has different selling point (aka why should people pay money to buy it?). PS3 is for HD video and high tech, targets hard core gamers. Wii is for wide audiences, kids to elders can play. Xbox is for online, I think? This situation is quite "balanced" before, until the release of Wii, which shock the whole game world. So some gamers got upset by this situation.
When playing a game, especially a console game, besides having fun, you also want to ask yourself a question: what are you looking for in a console game? HD graphic? Online play function? New technology? Multiple usage (pictures, music, game, movie...)? New innovation? etc.
For this question, everyone are going to have different choice. For me, I would choose new innovation that no one think of before - I am tired of keep pressing buttons to play games (don't really have a choice for PC game). So, Wii is the answer for me.
Like I said, because of this new structure in Wii, it is going to take game developers a while for them to understand that games can have a new way of playing.
