    If you want people to give you an open mind and discuss the points you've brought to us, Don't insult whatever it is you are wanting discussed in your posts. Thats the biggest mistake you could have made.

    Not only do you look like an idiot, EVERYONE knows that you just wanted to slam the wii. Which you did very poorly.

    When you learn how to write objectively and actual problems with the wii, we'll take you seriously.

    Two thing: 1) Who buys a console to play dvd's? Is it really that hard to go out and buy a $10-$15 dvd player? come on. Blu-ray i can understand because those things are expensive out the ass (thus getting a ps3 gets you an awesome console AND a blu-ray player. sweeeet)

    2) The wii is more of a companion console. I consider myself a hardcore gamer, and from that standpoint, the wii is disappointing, but there are diamonds in the ruff when it comes to this topic. SMG, MP3, TP and the Virtual Console. The main reason i got the Wii were to play these games and the freaking Virtual console. Now i can go back and play most of the games i played as a young child, and with the gift of literacy, beat the games. I'm getting a 360 because the wii doesn't totally quench my thirst for hardcore games. I love my wii, but damnit i want to totally dominate my cousin when we play online.

(Also has better graphics yaddayadda). But not enough people want a 360 (people were willing to shell out PS3 prices for Wii's) so it isnt going to happen, not anytime soon atleast.
    By the time the Wii needs to drop in price, everyone will be talking about the next generation console. The reason that the 360 and PS3 are dropping to the price level of the Wii is that they aren't selling. Also, Sony and Microsoft can afford to produce money losing consoles, Nintendo can't. Which is why the Wii has been profitable from the start, unlike the 360/PS3, which have been sold at a loss from the start.

    As for the original poster of the thread. In order for people to have an "open mind" discussion, you can't come in with a closed mind and expect people to change their view to suit your needs. You sir, are an idiot and have proven yourself so.

    3. It's controller uses batteries which are ultimately expensive.
    4. It is unable to play DVD's, HD-DVD's or Blu Ray OR play generic video files. Oh but it can display static photos, hardcore.
    5. Most of the games on the Wii are shallow First Party or Third Party titles which are essentially just re-hashed versions of past games (Twilight Princess, Metroid Prime 3 etc.). Also some Third Party developers have begun to release generic puzzle or simple 3D side scrollers which is an example of how developers don't actually take the console seriously.
    6. In the end if the Wii didn't have the Wii-mote it would simply be a rather ordinary, graphically unimpressive console that focuses mainly on party games with little one player incentives to survive. It's gimmick incarnate and when developers begin to say "Hey! our games look like shit on this thing!!" support will dry up and you will all be left out in the cold.

    Now let's have some rebuttle.
    I shouldn't have left so early last night

    1. Graphics?
    Seriously dude they are not even that bad. Fanboy's call it two Gamecube's taped together, so surely that means it capable of decent visuals.

    2. Last I heard, developers were coming over to the Wii because of the potential the console showed.

    3. Batteries eh? Most packs are what now, like 5 bucks?
    Oh noes, a pack of four batteries can last a while if you buy the right ones (Energizer). Or like suggested buy rechargeable batteries.

    4. No DVD's? I already have a good quality DVD player, I don't need another one, and surely there are others out there in the same boat as me.

    5. Re-hashed versions of past games? Are you kidding me?
    Twilight Princess and Metroid Prime 3 are new games, and were not down before. Games in a series don't just fall under the re-hashed category.

    6. Thing with developers is they haven't yet taken the time to push the Wii to its limit, this goes for third party though for the most part. Look at games like Galaxy and Metroid Prime 3 and tell me they don't look good.

    And this is supposed to tell you to buy a Wii or whatever.
    Don't buy a Wii, instead, go back to the magazine stand where you learned this horrendous info about the Wii, and learn something about the other consoles as well. Maybe this generation ain't good enough for ya

    The Wii obviously won't fail for several reasons.

    1. It has something all the other consoles don't.[Motion Senors]
    2. It definitely has better game play due to the Motion Sensors.
    3. I don't think there are lots of games that aren't out for Wii that are out for PS3 and 360. Most of them that aren't out for Wii are first party? Correct me if I'm wrong.
    4. A PS2, and a DVD player stacked togethor are NOT bigger than a PS3. So why would you want to watch DVD's on a PS3? I think most people have COMPUTERS TO WATCH IT ON.
    5. XBOX360 overclocks really easily I heard. I don't have one personally, but my friend left hers on and after 8 hours it fried.
    6. Wii is just plain awesome. It is a lot more interactive with Mii Channels and CheckMiiOut and etc.
    7. I don't know, but I don't think you can buy PSX games on a PS3 and XBOX games on a 360. BUT GUESS WHAT. You can on a Wii!!

    Wait, I kinda agree there. Metroid does seem suspiciously like a Cube title and itd make sense.. youd think theyd complete a trilogy on one console, but oh no, Cube sales were terrible and Wii needed a killer app, so I'm saying they delayed it and fine tuned some excellent motion controls for it. We also know Twilight Princess was originally only Cube aswell....
    And there are PLENTY killer apps that WIi doesnt have and PS3/360 do... Mass Effect, COD4, Bioshock, skate, RockBand, World in Conflict, Crysis...Viva Pinata etc
    I still prefer my Wii....

    once interest falls on the Wii the next Wii will come out. Nintendo has been using this business model for ever. Remember how the DS did terrible in the United States, well they launched the DS lite that was more appealing--boom it starts to sell in the US.

    I assure you Nintendo already has a Wii 2 sitting up in there office with everything a ps3 has graphics wise just being tested and what not.
