    Isn't the Wii's installed base more than 2 times that of the PS3??? If the PS3 hits 20 million sales(if it ever does) there is no way the Wii will be at the same place. The Wii would probably be at 30 million sold at the LEAST.
    A more realistic number would be 40 million wii's sold.
    I honestly think the Wii's momentum is only going to get stronger this year. The most anticipated game for the Wii ever comes out in March. Smash Bros. Brawl. And I predict Wii Fit to be a worldwide phenomenon.

    Yes it is, but I'm making a different point with this issue. I'm adressing all the haters out there who keep comparing it to and wishing it was like the others.

    If the PS3 keeps losing exclusives to the Xbox 360 like it has in the past then there's no way it'll ever catch up with Nintendo. Nintendo's got its biggest game ever on the horizon for Wii. What does Sony have that's coming out this year that can compete with the hype of Super Smash Bros. Brawl?

    To me it seems like he likes his Wii more over the PS3. Right now I would slap him. But thats only cuz right now im so addicted to CoD4 that i would have bought a console just to play that 1 game over and over.

    As long as the Wii is not in 3rd they will continue to hate thats just how people are. No worries though some people crumble at the sheer weight of things just like all those PS2 owners that where die hard nintendo or even sega fans.

    All you can do is address them and talk to them some or worth talking to actually believe it or not. People will be negative before they are positive based on where they are in their life. Yet lots of hardcore games own the Wii and one form of a hardcore set up from PC-PS3.

    Most of the complainers are from people that think that Wii owners are bad or casual gamers. It's mostly fear and their reasoning behind why they hate or dislike the Wii. Now if the PS3 WAS the Wii I winder what would happen then, since the PS2 was the Wii of the last gen.....

    I don't remember too many people complaining about not playing ninja gaiden on the PS2.
    Also too every one keeps hoping the PS3's graphics are going to get even better or either some magical game will come out of no where, yet people believe this can not be the case for the Wii. Well we will see once factor 5 is done... If you remember they pushed the GC to a point no other developer has reached yet and they go on the PS3 and knock out some crazy graphics also yet you have to notice how even these guys where not able to blow every one else away graphically. If you are a PC gamer then you can see where the PS3 begins and the PC graphics start. Just look up the specs for a direct x capable card and a direct x 10 card. Once again you will see that the xbox is actually closer to being a direct x 10 capable machine. What is sad is this isn't even coming from an xbox fanboy!

    I will say that some good looking games will come out but players are notorious for getting over eye candy. It did not save platforming, 2d space shooters nor any other game.... only game play did....

    Hey but you know what all of this buying into to the HD systems is a good thing because these guys are paying for our future! So when you see an HD system owner give them a hug and a high five and point to them- and yell "your the man!".

    I mean really if it was not for High spec PC owners like my self we would not even see "afforable" HD console graphics. Thanks to this the next nintendo console will just get better! I mean really by that time gets here you will have the Wii chips in the next DS!

    Hey I'm hearing nothing but good about that game. I also heard the aiming is crazy accurate. Does CoD4 have better aiming accuracy than Metroid Prime 3??

    Ok Gotcha! I thought YOU were complaining. What those people need to do is buy a PS3 and shut up. Either you like the Wii as it is or don't buy it..Simple. The irony of it all is that if the Wii had PS3 capable graphics/HD then it would be a $700 machine and would scare away casual and even hardcore gamers. Thus have Less sales and Less games. The wii would then struggle in sales with few games and developers and those same complaining haters would not like the Wii for that same reason. Either way, you can't satisfy people in denial...

    YES! That the thing. Nintendo can't win either way...

    The wii was made for an exppress purpose and because it's NOT like the others, it not valid. How I HATE that attitude! I used to be more tolorant, but as time goes on, the more it irritates me.

    I just get so TIRED of the doom and gloom predictions of the wii's failure. It's like it is surounded by a pack or starving wolves that can't wait to rip it to shreds.

    Denial; yes, that is it. Even in the face of all the evidece to the contrary, people are STILL predicting its eventual failure.

    lol that guy is gay he contridics himself.

    he says the wii (smg) has good graphics and if you look at ps3 games u wonder what the price is all about.

    THEN says the wii lack of processing power.

    I am sure as amny other people justify the ps3 being crap because no one is pushing it, it's the same for the wii, no one is pushing it!!!
