    I totally agree. Nintendo is doing something completely new, which we all know so no need to go into it. Once it has reaffirmed it's status as a major player in the short term I wouldn't be surprised if a Wii 2.0 came out or something. The power of a PS3, the best control system from the Wii (which it will hopefully be at that time). Also with the PS3 and Xbox360 being out for so long, the price of the components would have dropped, a clear winner will be decided in the HD-DVD/Blu-Ray war and Nintendo can pick the best of everything and package it in a pretty Apple style package.

    At least that's what I would do if I were Nintendo....

    I agree 100% with you. If the Wii takes off like I think it will and pulls Nintendo out of the grave and back to it's old self. I see another system launch before another sony or microsoft system comes out again, and that nintendo system(let's pray it happens) will be the one to put the big N back on top

    and i like this quote

    "PS3 is too expensive, and the games/experience seems more of the same with improved graphics.... yawn."

    In a nutshell. Yes i do wish the wii had the ps3 graphic, but if the wii started focusing more on graphic the game play will most probaly drop......which would mean the wii wouldnt interest me!

    Good point, and with the High cost of games especially for sony it's going to limit the sale of games for awhile compared to the Wii games which are priced alot more reasonably

    That's assuming sony ever gets 121 million units out to be sold. And that blu-ray doesn't bomb.

    I didn't have the Gamecube - I had a PS2. I'm getting the Wii. I think a lot of people are making this switch after the 600$ price tag.
