    Wii is not a video game machine, says former DICE CEO

    According to this idiot Fredrik Liliegrin, the wii isn't a video game console.

    Fredrik Liliegrin, former CEO and co-founder of DICE, has said that Nintendo's Wii console isn't a gaming machine. In his opinion, it's a "virus" and Nintendo knows it. Speaking to Gaming Union, Liliegrin said:

    I would describe it as a Virus, that doesn't stick. Everyone comes home, it's a toy, people have got to realize the Wii is a toy, not an entertainment focused product. People come home, someone, they play Wii for a bit, feel it's really cool, blah blah blah, they go out and buy one.

    Ask people how often they play the Wii, that are not the core game consumer that buys one because they have an Xbox 360 and a Wii or a PlayStation 3 and a Wii. The people that only own the Wii, ask that consumer how often they use their machine. They just don't use it, it was cool, but they're not gamers, so they put it away.

    Other than the Wii Fit phenomenon that helped a lot of people get a nice cutie voice telling that they're fat and need to go work out, they need to find other alternatives. Nintendo is smart in that way in that they realize this is not a video game machine, this is not a games game machine.
    As for developing games for the Nintendo console, Liliegrin said that he would only do it if he got paid. He wouldn't risk releasing a new IP for the Wii unless he thought he had "an absolute home run".
