People are getting it spot on, its all about the third party game releases. We all know what the wiis graphics are like. We've all seen screenshots and we have accpeted the graphic or we wouldnt be here. I personally think there is nothing wrong with the wiis graphics as i am used to playing pc fps's with minimun graphic to maximise the frames per second. the two factors that will sway the wii into sucess or failure (in my opinion) are:
- the controller. the controller is without a doubt one of the, if not the main selling point for the wii. from the sounds of reviews the wiis controller is very good, so i have no problem here.
- the games. if the launch releases are anything to go by again i have no problem here aswell. Zelda, SSBB, SM Galaxy three cracking titles which should be a sucess, i have no doubt first parties games will be sucessfull, will back full use of the controller. however like ive said the real make or break for the wii are the third party games. there is only a limit nintendo can do themselves, and yes they usually do focus on non or t rated games. so its in the third partys hands it release decent T, M games aswell as some good sports and non rated games for that matter. Again by the looks of it big developers are backing the wii, farcry, splintercell, need for speed, madden, red steel are just some of the LAUNCH third party titles which will be released, and i think they are all apart from madden at least T rated. i just hope these games turn out good and make use of the nintendos market niche, the controller! again you may moan about graphic but i think the graphic are fine. Red steel and nfs looks awsome IMO. havent seen much of splintercell. madden looks alright for a sports game and the game play looks good even though i dont have a clue what american football is like. farcry looked awsome and poor at the same time. the sky and water looked first rate however i think the character and enviromental textures need alot of work, but with this sorted it will look great.
