Also too there is no way and hell the Wii is going to repeat the GC. They are nothing alike. As soon as the current wave of software reaches bargain bin prices you will see another surge. Yet the Casual gaming idea is pushing system almost as good as SONY buy a dvd player plan, if not better since people are buying this solely to game be it casual or not.
Also too as illustrated here in the thread there is a big divide in the current hardcore gamer. that is not good for the current hardcore only systems. Releasing one type of game actually causes the other not to like the system. thats a real power struggle. the more tolerant the over all gamers are the better off the system will do as a whole it seems. There is the I'm a cooler gamer than you causing a lot of static online right now. These are the guys that have to have a HD system or a PC. I have a PC but I'm over my self and most of the gimmicks you guys like. Graphics are great but some stuff is getting boring. Yet that effect may take like 3 years or so!
It almost like there is a realism gamer now and a fantasy gamer in the console world now. Before there where more fantasy gamers. You even got some guys that are trying to put down guys who like fantasy or turn based games. To those guys I hate to break it to you but you are playing a game. It's actually a child's game too. How many squad based FPS will you buy? I have like 7 already and I'm burnt out! I don't want anime art but I do want a lot more creativity! The absolute extreme of these guys are CS players. If you even call you self cloud they will puke on their mouse it seems! These guys have an xbox mostly since FF is going to be a big game on the PS3.
This same divide is what pretty much turned PC gaming into to all FPS or WOW games. The thing that keep me gaming was the open-ness of console gaming. I've played in ranked matches for money and I still do yet I still remember and love all the games I played before I got there. Just remember These are still games you are playing and there is not that much manly about them. You can dislike some thing all you want but gaming is much bigger than one preference. I'm a little tired of the online ranks with in the FPS scene. i go there to get a quick fix and keep my skills up but if any thing i feel as if nintendo has made the better choice by getting these type of gamers off the system. It's not the violence that is a problem, it's the discus of getting owned by some one during a match and that vengeful state of pay back.
If you look at the system sales of by way of a fan boys eyes you get the same feeling! You ask your self how is my team getting beat! WTF is going on!
It's like saying some one got a lucky shot in a online game yet he keeps hitting you but you have the advantage some how yet it does not matter. You think he's got to be cheating! AIMbot! The Wii is like that right now. It can't last as every one you know doesn't like it. Thanks to how nintendo has design this system you will have no reason to not like it as soon as 20 million Wiis are shipped because it will not matter what it did in the past as developers Will make games for it now. Tactics far out way perception! This is what SONY had in it's favor for the PS brand up until now. The only gamer nintendo is going to really miss is the hardcore realism guys. I'm sure most gamers will not miss them either, unless you need some one to shoot at.
So on that that note let me play some Enemy territory!
