    well guys, it looks like we'll have to beg to differ.

    oddly enough, the Wii forum isn't the only forum i frequent. it does however
    seem to have the most "protective" forumites i have come across.

    i made a statement, which was (and still is) my opinion. for that i get
    flippant remarks, not quite flaming, but almost, aimed back at me because
    i question the business decision of the worlds richest company.

    as for affiliation to companies (sovieto, from your "epic" remark) i ought to
    have more than probably either of you. i'm currently an MCP, who is working
    through MCSA an (hopefully) onto MCSE. look up the abreviations to see
    what i'm referring to.

    as for schools being better than 27 years ago (flood502) you're probably
    right...they're bound to be better equipped. all we had were BBC and amstrads "computers".

    oh, by the way...windows 3.x isn't an OS, it's a GUI for DOS.

    as for the MAC? i'm no fan, never touched one tbh, and unless i get into
    graphics or dtp then i doubt i ever will.

    you don't take kindly to patronisation? i don't take kindly to childish flippant
    "whatever" nonsense...i see enough of that every day on tv thank you.

    i didn't treat you like a kid...i have no need to.

    anyway, as i said, we'll have to beg to differ on this one.
    you work for mircrosft?
    and your job requires you to sit at a computer and help people?
    a job indians should be doing??

    lol, no.

    i don't work for M$ and i don't sit at a computer helping people (unless
    you consider answering questions on a forum the same thing). no, what
    i'm doing is studying the MCSE2003 course, well when i can fit it in between
    work/wife/kids.

    anyway, i'm glad this didn't turn into another tiresome slanging match
    between anonymous people sitting behind their respective pc's.

    can we all be friends now?

    If that's what you want.

    I'll consider it ^^

    I only put 'whatever' to show that it's up to you... and you assumed that i'm some 10 year-old who enjoys sitting in a bus shelter with a bottle of cider listening to something that can only be described at a old man hitting a tin can with a wooden spoon drooling out incoherent nonsense.

    ^^ my music tastes are much more refined. (he he he... Alexisonfire, Silverstein, From First To Last, etc ^^). And i'm far too intelligent to go outside, in the rain, just to sit in a bus shelter =/ - dumbass chavs.

    flood,

    no disrespect, but you make far too many assumptions.
    in your initial reply you assumed that i spend 8 hours a day "playing" video games, i had no life, and must have bad eyesight.
    those assumptions couldn't be further from the truth.

    as for me? i never assumed you were a 10 year old cider drinking chav.

    as for musical taste? i too prefer guitar orientated music.
    you'll see how old i am when i say that Metallica have been my favourite band since 1983.

    anyway, i'm tired of bitching. life is way too short.

    Eh i cant see it being effective no offense to Microsoft.

    Xbox360 is too branded as a more hardcore system, that plus its price will keep the casual gamer away from it. One of the only reasons a casual gamer would get the Wii is cause of its price. They dont want a $400+ system if they are only going to 'casually' use it.

    not true, there is a $300 version of the 360, thats only $50 more than the wii, and if the consumer was smart theyd know theyre getting a way better deal

    the price point has nothing to do with it.

    remember the playstation 1?

    how many "casuals" bought that at £280? i did, as did many others.
    in that instance, it was "casual" gamers who thrust gaming into the
    mainstream.

    that's entirely subjective.

    and the core 360 is pretty much worthless (no hdd) to any gamer, casual or not. also doesn't come with a game, controller is wired...

    clearly not comparing apples to apples here.
