so far, the first 3 months of 2009 have been the best the console has seen for third-party releases. Not only have games like THOTD: Overkill and MadWorld proven that good graphics can be produced on the hardware, but also that the system is for hardcore gamers as well. Most importantly, the release rate of shovelware has decreased significantly, and at least 3 worthwhile games are released each week. If the Wii continues with such quality software being released, do you think it will turn the console's reputation around and 'core gamers will finally be able to admit that they like or even prefer the Wii over it's competitors? I for one think that this year is the turning point which will put the console's name in history as possibly the greatest console of all time.
