    What did you really expect with posting something like this?

    Nintendo never claimed the wii was new tech, but a new way to play games. Who cares if the tech inside of it is "obsolete" or not? What does that mean anyway? Obsolete. Does it not fullfill the porpose for which it was made? All they did was take something "old' and create a new aplication for it. Is this not done all the time, taking something "old" and finding a new way to use it; thus making it feel "new' again?

    The wii is much more than the sum of it's parts, no?

    You can't say stuff like that without the fanboys going nuts. It is old technology and Nintendo is making loads of money off the old technology. But it's more how they used the old technology to have a good system. I don't really like the Wii but you can't knock Nintendo cause they've done a very good job with marketing and keeping the demand high for these machines.

    The Power Glove was a third-party product not made by Nintendo.

    The word 'obsolete' means out of and date and out of use which certainly doesn't sum up the Wii technology.

    Didn't we all know that the Wii's hardware sucks? It doesn't seem to be a secret...

    TV remotes and the Wii both use IR...TVs obviously don't use multiple IR sensors to calculate the remote's position, but they still use the same technology.

    But unfortunately it isn't even that powerful. It is more like one overclocked GameCube.

    Hey! It's Paintba||er on his magical PS3 pony!
    (I seriously have to thank whoever has that Sig!)

    And you know this... how? Have you taken apart a Gamecube & a Wii, put the pieces side by side, and researched every component?

    Last I check, Galaxy and Brawl couldn't be done on a Gamecube.

    Also, last I checked, the Gamecube needed to use two disc to run Resident Evil 4, while the Wii needed one.
    GAME OVER
