im not here to bash the wii though, it makes me look like a prick since im on a wii forum so ill keep my opinions to myself.
and yes i understand business, when i said they shoudlve just thrown in the hard drive i wasnt being 100 percent serious. decisions arent just made like that and when i said that i was under the impression nintendo was making a larger profit off each console at launch. no doubt they make a larger profit now, since the tech is even older. if i had to guess microsoft is breaking even on their consoles now and sony is still losing money trying to play catch up.
its all besides the point. i was just trying to point out that not including a hard drive at launch was another fail for nintendo. they really dicked their hardcore fanbase over and i'll leave it at that.
one last thing though..
if the others had figured out that the wii was to be a hit, they all would have done it
this statement is not true at all. if it were, then sony and microsoft would make the xbox 3 and ps4 like the wii, and we all know thats not going to happen. nice theory though.
