    People called it a gimmick right out of the gate.
    Personally I feel its lost that title, selling tons of consoles while having many mediocre games out does that.

    Now its got all the hits coming out, and is still selling tons of consoles.
    Not really a gimmick or a fad, as many people are still in search of them and are demanding them.

    And many still are playing with them.

    4-5 years is what I give it.
    No matter what the circumstances.

    Yea I think it will get the usual life-span of a console.

    On the other hand with the way microsoft handles the online bit and the talk nintendo held a day or 2 ago they say the wii will come to its rights in about 4 to 5 years. So this could mean that nintendo would not be developping and releasing another console in the normal period ( I'm talking about the transition from super nintendo to N64, N64 to gamecube, gamecube to Wii ) maybe nintendo is intending on keeping the wii around longer by adding a LOT of online options and channels. And maybe microsoft is doing the same.

    No other consoles had an internet community/or online functions behind/in them. And what do you see with online communitys: It does not matter how old the communitys are, if there are players and new content/things to be had they keep on "Living". Just look at counterstriker and starcraft. VERY old games but still being played all over the place!
    Tip of the day:
    A big mistake a lot of you make is that wiiware games will be free.

    Wiiware is just the same like the virtual console. Its different in that it offers new games instead of old console games.

    I can think of some easy games ( Like tetris and some other in that direction ) that can be free but the majority will cost money.

    You took the words right out of my mouth. The Wii will continue its popular streak as long as the good games keep on flowing, and there seems to be a lot of them coming our way.

    Yep, a console is only as good as the games availiable.

    Not entirely true.
    Like I said, they sold well on Mediocre games, even outsold 360 with those mediocre games.
    Now we are getting the good stuff, but I have a strong feeling that if there was a said "drought" of games in the middle of 08 it would not be a problem.
    More good games would follow, and we could have mediocre games in between the beginning and the end of 08.

    Kinda like the Wii's launch style, although its launch had weak titles as well, so it had mediocre games for a while.

    I think the Wii is set now, with all the unreleased dates of the games we have seen previews for, the games coming out soon, the ones that will end up being mediocre and the ones we have heard nothing about.
