    IMO, the two biggest factors contributing to Wii not getting FPS/multiplatform games is the combination of lower graphics power as compared to the 360/PS3, and target audience.

    I have played plenty of wii FPS's and they felt fine to me (on the issue of discussion) they had their falling points but the button use was fine.

    Then I noticed Call of Duty 4 wasn't being released on the Wii even though the Wii Console has outsold the 360 and PS3 manyfold.
    Sales are not everything, developers also look for gameplay and graphics, if a console is currently the leader in the market doesn't mean every developer will flock to them.

    I hope they come out with a "Wiii". As easy to use an alternate wand with more buttons for non-simple games. There would be no need to get a different wand unless you were playing complesx games like COD4 etc.
    I would think a more packed controller would feel jammed and not as sleek and smooth as the wii's persona. Think how would they fit more buttons on that design without deforming it and making it an odd looking remote/control hybrid. Nintendo are aiming for the casual market and making complex confusing controls will not benefit the cause.

    I know they have a controller, but i really like the wand\nunchuck. Also maybe a 40 gig laptop HardDrive and decent VideoCard.
    So you want the same design but more complex?

    Why would the wii have a laptop harddrive

    It would surely be an external HD, not a laptop one

    The graphics are not as simple as a video card change in consoles.

    The problem with the Wii hasn't been the price, its the 'Last Gerenation" graphics.
    Check your specs, the wii is stronger then last generation, give it time for the best looking games to come out, look at PS2 for example it only showed its real power near the end with games such as God Of War 2.

    i think if they came out with the additions where the wand would be 50 instead of 40 retail and the console came with a standard controller with a little better video and a harddrive. It could sell for 300 easy (40 for HD 40 for better video card). I would buy one today. I think most Wii FPS-Players would.
    Your now wanting a whole different console.

    One of the wii's attraction is the game play from it and the price, making complex controls, hard drives and graphics like the competition would just make it another console not an innovative step forward for video gaming.

    IrTech if I could slap you I think I would. Those "last generation" graphics aren't the problem it's people who don't see the full potential of the wii. It's got motion controls, downloadable content, and with a small sacrifice of graphics (down to old Xbox quality) you don't pay like $700 for a system. God! there will be tons of great games for wii please don't rag on it already!

    i think that nintendo is plenty innovative but sometimes i think it goes a little overboard, like i think tp and excite truck were perfect control schemes but id probly have gotten cod3 for wii if the controls were different(online play wouldve helped)

    one day i'll buy halo 2, load it onto 2 computers, plug in a 360 controller to 1 of them and ask my friends (that are killer in halo), to take me on. i'd mop the floor with them.

    my controller skills on a console arent all that great. that's why i bought a Wii. i havent tried any fps' on it yet, but i think i'd rather play them on the wii than a 360 or ps any day of the week. it would be more computer like with the wiimote.

    or it was more a fail-safe, so even if the wii didnt do that great theyd still have made a profit, or they just wanted to copy the ds's success and make huge $$. but really, in recent history i cant recall a single game that had such amazing graphics that the developer didnt focus on the game itself that much. all AAA titles i see have great graphics and great gameplay, cant see how they can detach from the other when all you have 2 separate teams working on each..

    Do you really feel like Harry Potter when playing with the Wii?

    From discussing the WII on another forum, most of the negatives people say for it is:
    -Not enough buttons for "complicated" games
    -The WIImote is way too slow for FPS games, thus dumbing the game down

    I dont agree with these but thats the main reasons why people dont like the WII, oh and the "lack" of technology.

    People are also saying the only reason why its selling the most is because of the price and when it was released ie before the PS3

    Sickens me lol
