    Well, if thats what you mean then it is pretty obvious why. Because it is cheaper. They make money on the consoles rather than losing it like Sony and MS do, and the price is a huge reason that they are selling so well. If the Wii was $600 then they would lose the non gamers (most of their sales) and they would have much more competition from the other consoles. A lot of Wii owners would have bought a 360 or PS3 instead if they were the same price, and the Wii would be selling just like the GC did.

Its the games and the way you play them. If I want graphics, I turn on my PS3. But actually I love my wii a lot more its an amazing system, there are no flaws, its a perfect machine down to the name of it. 'Wii'

    I LMAO at that. The Wii is very, very far from flawless. And the name...I want to know what they were smoking when they thought that up......

    Haha i lol'd at "no flaws" aswell..

    Anyways, If you want the most gameplay you can get and graphics play xbox live. Because with xbox live you can play games that are on the wii but online and i think online gives games the best gameplay you can get. I still play Socom online more than i play my wii.

    I think the main reason that Nintendo opted to go with a less-than-current graphical console because they needed to try something new. The Gamecube, which had superior graphics to the PS2, still came in last place. Clearly graphics were not going to sell consoles for them so they had to think of something new. The Wii Remote and the barely better than last generation hardware brought in both hardcore gamers who wanted to try a new method of playing games and the casual/non-gamers who thought it was a good entry price for the fun you can get out of it.

    Yeah, i know, but for all the people in a rush. I mean once mario kart comes out online that will be the best gameplay game out there. Racing others using the wiimotes tilt online.

    Thats not true at all.
    They wouldn't have bought it instead because the Wii is a great system for no-gamers. Notice all the games out for it now that appeal to non-gamers that you always complain about. Wii has more non-gamer games than 360 and Ps3, and people also wanted to try out the Wii's control's. The pick up and play aspect of the Wii is what makes it appealing to non-gamers. If anything they would pick up a Wii and 360 or vice versa, or maybe even all three if they had the money.

    And the Wii was simply named "Wii" because it was easy to pronounce in Japan, much easier than Revolution was anyway.

    Yes. This is why I like the Wii because I can just play a few minigames before sleep and feel satisfied. I dreaded playing zelda sometimes because I knew I shouldnt have been playing it for so long in one sitting and I lost alot of sleep lol. But all games are a waste of time but a sh_tload of fun

    I agree. Time will turn the tables. Hopefully.
