    Microsoft Ready For Wii "Graduates"?

    Microsoft hopes that gamers who want to "graduate" from the experiences offered by Wii will look to buy an Xbox 360 as their second current-gen console, according to MS exec Jeff Bell.

    Bell speaks positively of Wii's mass-market achievement, saying that he's "thankful that the Wii has been able to open up a lot of people's minds that gaming is fun for everyone."

    But Bell admits that the hope is 360 will benefit from this extended gaming appeal, by position 360 as the ideal second console. "We're positioning ourselves to be ready if, in fact, gamers find they're ready to graduate from a certain experience potentially with the Wii, either because it's limited on the type of gameplay that's available or the technology in that box."

    He went on to add: "We think that we could live very, very well in the same household as the Wii, and we're trying to make sure that when there is that choice for a second console that it is the Xbox 360."

    It's the Wii60 revolution even MS' Peter Moore admitted would be commonplace in this generation.

    Why do you keep posting these flame articles? Seriously, these are just PR crap articles made to slant favor.

    So why not post some alternative ones instead of bashing people who at least try to engage the community?

    Cool on the article and an A+ for Microsoft at least trying to accept people may choose a Wii over a 360 and remedying the situation. I don't mind 360, and I might even choose it over a PS3 if I get some extra money in the future but right now I think even their console is too expensive.

    Really what needs to be realized is the price of games, $50-60 is just ridiculous in my opinion (as I don't have an "income").
    With much love, 261311.

    That isn't flame. I think its very respectable. Microsoft acknowledged the wii as a popular system and is now trying to cooperate with the wii rather than run it out of business.

    A response to "Wii - DVD Compatible?"
    "I put a PS3 disc in it and the Wii wouldn't read it. WTF is this world coming to? If I buy a video game console, it better take and kind of media I want. Even if I were to dust off some of my vinyl LPs, the bastard better work."

    OMG i'm really beginning to hate microsoft now. It should be the other way around. People need to "graduate" from the 360 and move on to the revolutionary nintendo wii. I say this because I believe that the next consoles will all have motion-sensing capabilities to the wii's extent, because it's just so much better than those old-school analog sticks. But that's just my opinion.

    N-no, because the wii's motion sensor is copyrighted(if im right) why do you think the ps3 is only 6 axis, not 12.


    The wii uses analog sticks.

    No, I don't want another gaming PC (which is essentially what the 360 and PS3 are), I already have one. Why would I play COD 4 in 720p or 1080p on the 360 (not sure what resolution it is) with a gamepad when I could play with my kbd/mouse in 1920x1200 Thats why I got a Wii...to get a unique experience. I realize there are some 360-only games that are good (Mass Effect), but not enough to make me ditch my PC.
