    The wii is a kids toy. Its last gen and has nothing going for it besides its price tag. All the 10 year old love it, but thats where the line is drawn.


    That's total crap! we're 30 and we love our wii + our friends who also own wiis are of similar age! in fact i don't know any kids who own wiis!
    Also it's more sociable than any other console and combines well with alcohol!
    Never had a wii party?

    oh dont remind me. There were so many injuries, people accidentaly getting knocked in the face, flying wiimotes and a couple broken items. Almost as bad as the time we got this smart idea to play drunken DDR with blindfolds.

    No one is saying the wii isnt fun, but the general argument here is taking place in a PS3 section. Theres a lot of illogical sony hate and fanboys have nothing better to do than troll here. What a few of us are trying to get at is that the wii isnt the god people are making it out to be, nor is the PS3 the crap fanboys are making it out to be. Its quite funny when you look at the big picture.

    I will not attempt to "argue" against a fanboy who thinks that the only consoles worth having are those with better graphics. He ignored the lesson of the DS.

    Honda civic is cheap and sells a lot of them, Mercedes SL Roadster is not cheap and does not sell a lot of them. Tell me, which is the better car?

    Hahahahahaha.....no.

    Lesson: Unique controls can sell.

    People thought the DS was a gimmick and it wasn't going to sell. Oops, they were wrong! Brain Age and Nintendogs, 2 games that fully utilize the touch screen, are the best selling games on the DS. Besides, the price difference between the DS and the PSP wasn't as large as the Wii and PS3.

    A better analogy is would you rather have a hover car or a normal car?

    Lol, what a comeback. A real one-two punch, isn't it? Is that the best you can come up with?

    I used "hover car" and "normal car" to show the REAL difference between Wii/DS and PS3/PSP. The hover car is not perfect but it does have advantages over normal cars.

    Its not a comeback. Im just stating what appears to be the truth. I would have more luck teaching a monkey to talk. Thats how illogical you are.

    By the way, your analogy is childish and has no real substance or relevance. You argue that the wii must be better because it sells more. You are wrong. You cannot base a systems capabilties by how much it sells, or how cheap it is. Again honda vs mercedes.

    The wii remote is not new technology. Its a tv remote used for games. Thats how miyamoto came up with the idea. I like the controller as well, but a controller is one piece of a whole. You cant base how good a car is by its tires. Or its windows. You have to look at the entire machine.

    Nintendo has more sales because they are known for having 1. the cheapest systems on the market. This is done by not using the latest technology, they are very basic systems with one main fuction. Family gaming. This means their target audience is very large. 2. Sony on the other hand, does not have a large target audience, its sales are low because its targeting a specific type of group. Do you know anything about marketing at all? The DS is a little less than half the price of the PSP. The PSP targets more mature gamers who are willing to spend more on the system. Hands down the PSP is a more powerful system, but is it as accessable as the DS. No. Sales do not equal power and potential.
