    kiddies system??

    on the gamespot forums alot of people were saying that:

    PS3= adult system
    Xbox 360= teen system
    Wii= kiddies system!!!

    it does kinda seem that way but do you agree?
    360PS3 FTW!!

    I'm sorry, but it has never been that way. Nintendo has always had their fair share of teen/mature titles. Just because it didn't have GTA or Manhunt or anything "mature" on doesn't mean it wasn't. I mean, look at the N64 Era. Along came Perfect Dark - Actual blood flowing. Turok series? I'm not sure how a gun that drills into a creatures head and detonates, in any way be considered "Kiddie". Again, on the cube, you've got Resident Evil series, Eternal Darkness etc... The Wii will keep the same trend with titles like Red Steel, Sadness and another one (that I cannot remember the name of at the moment).

    Also, I'd just have to point out that Playstation and Xbox have also had their fair share of kiddie titles: Ratchet and Clank, Crash Bandicoot, Jak and Dexter, Sly Cooper, Spyro etc...

    So in what way do they consider Nintendo "kiddie"? Suposedly because Nintendo themselves don't do "mature" titles. I ask you to look up Microsoft's and Sony's first party title lists. Compare that with their best selling games. Most, if not pretty much all of their best titles are from Third Party Developers. Nintendo? Their best selling titles are up their with the third party titles. Nintendo always has been and always will be a "family System" rather than a "kiddie" system. It's a concept behind the attraction of things like Shrek and the like - A lot of people liked it, not just "kiddies".

    Also, I find it ironic that Playstation is considered an "adult" gaming machine, whereas Xbox is considered a "teen" machine, considering so many games are published on both! Also, the fact that Sony is renowned (earlier in Playstations life) for having GTA. Mature? Hardly. Considering most of the people that play it are teenagers. Even by considering GTA "mature" it would mean that Xbox was an "adult" system as well, for it too has GTA, and also Saints Row.

    I emplore you: The next time somebody says Nintendo is a "kiddie" system, just say the titles of the mature titles published on any Nintendo console one by one. Without missing a beat, and without retaliation to anything else that person has to say. A lot of other factors are debatable. Nintendo doing "kiddie" systems is not.

    No, I dont agree that the Wii is for kids only. I'm 17 and I'm getting the Wii. The wii is for everyone, there will be games for kids, teens, adults, men, women, etc.

    Put it this way, the 4 million units launch of the Wii is sold out. Not even iOn can get one on launch - and he preordered too!

    Just remember kids, a Wii is not just for christmas, It's for life! (especially with Nintendo's hardware - even my NES and SNES work to this day!)

    Chicks dig you if you play Spyro, i'm serious. It's odd.

    On topic: Most kids at my school either think the Wii is for kids or are just waiting and seeing how it does when it comes out. I am one of 3 people openly saying that we're getting a Wii on launch. I don't know why many people think the Wii is a kids system. I remember one person: "I just don't think it's going to be a real console. It might be fun but i think it's only for kids or the the very max a party system". Whatever i tried, he always said that he thought it was a kiddies system and that was it. lol, so stubborn but didnt' have a reason to justify it. I let him be, anyways,have a wait list of people coming over my house to try out the Wii (since our local gamestop is the only one in like miles and is swamped daily with people trying the Wii). After all my friends have tried it, they'll hopefully get one.
