    Square Enix is right on. Nintendo is winning because they appeal to a broader market. My mom was the one in my family most excited about the wii, and i know plenty of girls who want one. Meanwhile, the PS3 and 360 appeal to... gamers, gamers, and more gamers. Ya, thats a pretty large target market, but i'd say the rest of the world is a bit bigger.

    Well, to be fair, not every gamer. I consider myself fairly hardcore. However, the label in the west of the hardcore gamer seems to revolve around mature games and FPS. I don't limit myself to those, which is part of the reason I've got a Wii - although I'm looking forward to most of the mature games. I'm even looking forward to MK Armageddon on Friday.

    However, the PS3 and 360 doesn't have what interests me atm. May get a 360 next year, but only once there's some games that I'm really interested in coming out.


    Mail me if you want to add me on either the Wii or the 360.

    Thats a nice find. I have always been a DQ fan, so I am pleased that it will be on the DS. I may also consider getting a PS3 or an Xbox 360 in two years though.

    I'm a little like that too, I've become more interested in mature games such as shooters. I never liked the Resident Evil games and never played one but now I have an interest and planning to get RE4 when it's released.

    Yeah, the guys at square love the Wii. They have been playing their office Wii constantly apparently.

    They've stated in interviews that future Final Fantasy games (13 and on) will NOT be PS3 exclusive, but available on the 360, and Wii if they can adapt them. Also, they intend to make a number of Wii and DS exclusive Final Fantasy games, both the crystal chronicles series and tie in games like FFXII: Revenant Wings.

    Haha ya, sorry, i shoulda been a bit more specific. Some serious gamers are Wii fans, but its not necessarily all Nintendo is aiming for, whereas the 360 and PS3 aim for those markets and thats about it. Wii fans are a bit of a grab bag, so naturally some "serious gamers" are gonna make their way over to the Wii.

    Especially FPS fans. I think the Wiimote is just gonna make that series so much more fun. I've never been an FPS fan really (too fake when using a remote), but i cant wait for RE4 (which i've yet to play) and Metroid Prime 3.

    7, 8 or 10. Or all. Although the trailer for Crystal Bearers does look pretty good...

    Certainly good to share in the square of love...

    Fair enough. Though I do feel that developers have just been testing the water mostly. I think they've got a positive response, and hope that the Wii will have a fair share of "hardcore" games. I've been very picky in teh past when it comes to FPS. Goldeneye, classic. Perfect Dark, Amazing. Apart from that, I think only Turok 2 is the only other FPS that I've actually really liked (and that's more to do with the cerebral bore). As for the Resident Evil series, I've been a fan since the second game (the first one didn't have the same quality in my opinion).

    I think you're right about the 360 and PS3, although I feel more people are begining to realise that those consoles aren't neccessary to have a good time. Heck, it seems to be a drawback at times: The three most popular console on the market today have worse graphics than their rivals: DS, Wii and PS2.

    Anyway, back on topic. I think Squareenix are doing a good job, and at least with the wiimote and DS touch screen, chances of getting literally a port will hopefully be very small. *crosses fingers*

    I think you'll be pleasantly surprised. 4 is the one that started raking in new fans. Now that it's coming out for the wii, I think Umbrella Chronicles may be more of a hitter than Resident Evil 5!
