    Approach this with an open mind, 6 Reasons why the Wii will fail

    Ok heres a list of reasons why I believe the Wii will die the death is surely deserves, debate would be appreciated.

    1. It is based on a nancy Gamecube ATi graphics processor while the 360 and PS3 are based on innovative NVIDIA processors.
    2. It's medium; DVD pales in comparison to HD-DVD and Blu Ray and when games start to become to large to fit on DVD's developers will begin to turn away from the Wii.
    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.

    But Nintendo has tapped the casual market. We don't count. Doesn't matter if the casuals don't use it. Once they've bought it it's a sale...

    And for the past 3 generations the weakest console (graphically) has come out on top.

    PS2>Xbox>Gamecube
    PS1>N64
    SNES>Genesis

    P.S. This is terrible for a first post. This tells us that you only joined this site to complain about the Wii.
    GAME OVER

    You're not taking into account the variable of us, human beings.

    None of those 6 points are any reason why the wii will fail. They are minor disappointments, and nothing more. They ultimately amount to nothing.

    1 reason why the PS3 will fail

    Last generation there was 2 black consoles and 1 purple console at launch. The minority got last. This generation there were 2 white and 1 black at launch...

    See, I can make up reasons for things too.


    Thanks Star Striker for the sig.

    You didn't ask us to give you reasons to buy a wii, you gave us an [obviously biased] list of reasons why the wii will [supposedly] fail.

    What do you want us to say?

    Two words for ya (no its not SUCK IT)
    "Casual gamers"

    The market no other console has had since the PSX/one
    For a change theres a console that is for all ages (look at the age range on the site from mums/dads askin what games are good for there 4 year olds to 60+ year olds playin it them selfs (have herd that there are some in retirement homes that pushies it up even higher)

    So in the end its ot the graphics that people are carein about (think Wiisports) its the way its played

    I dont think so the Gamecubes sales where awfull as where the N64s but the N64 won on quality titles allone
    The SNES mega drive/Genesis was a tie in sales we all won that one with the games out

    Yeah, you most difinitely weren't trying to set us up for reasons to buy the wii. You just said why the Wii would fail, then made fun of the best rebuttle that could come out of this situation.
