    I am sure most of you can find more than 5 things wrong with them, but these are the general problems/concerns. The ones that I agree are big problems are no Voice Chat (weak online) and lack of new franchises. Hopefully Nintendo starts or already has planned to do both of those.

    Yeah, I guess we should get new franchises....as long as we get to keep the old ones, too.

    Everything about the Wii's online is weak, there's nothing it does better than PSN or Live. Nintendo needs to do a major overhaul in that department, but I don't know if they actually care since most Japanese players dont even care about online.

    Yes they need to make better standards, but I think Nintendo overall is screwed. Making hardware thats inferior to the rest is just not going to attract developers. Lets say Nintendo did make a standard, then they would be stuck with a handful of games and making little to no money by software sales. So I don't really see how this can be fixed until the next console.

    New franchises I agree 100%, this is all on Nintendo, but truthfully I think Nintendo is scared to take risks. They seem to have a cookie cutter mindframe when it comes to their games. They're usually rahashed ideas that seem to keep people pleased somehow... For instance, Zelda games are always the same. It's just different visuals and a new story. Everything else is almost exactly the same. It's like if MS kept making Halo trilogies with a new story and say it's a different Master Chief in a different era...

    Control Schemes is all up to the game devs, I don't think Nintendo can really fix that because they do fine on their own games.

    Supply and Demand! Somehow I think Nintendo is purposely doing this to keep up anticipation for the console. I don't understand how the cheapest console is having such huge supply issues. Don't give me that crap about Wii selling like Hotcakes because even though it's selling alot, compared to how cheap it is to make and how easy, it should be able to keep up.

    I had an idea like that, too.....except with Zelda.

    Ganondorf and Link have to team up to stop an even greater enemy. Of course in the game, they start out as rivals, but them join up after the real evil guy appears....And, maybe a new princess?

    You cant really blame them for the supply. I heard they are making 1.8 million a month. More than any other system ever. (I may have miss heard, but this is what the rep for nintendo america said on Gametrailers on spike TV tonight).

    man nintendo online needs to step it up alot as we all agree on, speaking to one another is one thing, but the friend code thing is just... hell no..

    personally i'd say to keep the zelda games basically link against ganon, its classic and its been around for years (i was pissed when there was no ganon in majora's mask), but they need some new rpg games as well..

    another thing i wanna mention is how nintendo claims to be for all audiences or w/e, they need to focus on the mature audience a bit more... reminds me how smash bros brawl is slower than melee, did they slow that down because it was too fast for the little kids or something? the wii is still my favorite console but the DS lost me forever.

    Has the writer of the article actually played on a Wii? I think it's a bit rich criticizing something that they have no first hand experience of.


    None of the original list is a description of a fault with the Wii .. .. .. .. it's a list of what people think they want for the Wii (and if they had it there would STILL be supid lists like this made).

    well..
    I dont care about other 4 reasons but the reason 5...

    The reason why the online is crap is because its free..
    If we have to pay to play the online, it would suck for a person who are not allowed to use credit cards. (like me).
    even though it's 5 bucks for month (like rumscap, i dont play, my friend does),
    some parents doesn't really trust givng credit card numbers on internet.

    Also, if u say that, all the money nintendo makes is enough to support the online gameplay?
    Ur wrong! Nintendo is really famous console and also Rated E(everyone) game.
    Which means, even a 5 years old can play it and enjoy it, but wahts wrong about it is, there are a lot of children out there who doesn't wears a wii strap but swings it too hard and hit someone, etc..
    Then, nintendo gets blamed and get sued for a lot of dollars.

    That's when Nintendo uses the money we should of get for online play, but instead they use it to protect themselves. Which is not a bad decision. I think it's great. Nintedo live = more games for mario fan isn't it? XD

    Problem is the kid who doesn't know how to use freaking wiimote properly and nintendo get sued for it...

    I honestly do not understand how people can still use the "it's free, so you can't complain" argument. PSN (both on the PS2 and PS3) is free, and they BLOW Nintendo online away. They have friends lists, voice chat, clans, etc.

    And it's all free.

    Bummer.

    The new franchise thing is sorta pushing things don't you think? Look at other major 3rd party do you see them pushing out new franchise every generation? or stick to their winning formula? Big N does try to push out new franchise each gen, so keep your horses : )

    And correct me if I'm wrong, but PS2 online services are from third party correct? as far as servers, voice chats, etc. mostly those who have experience online on PC before? I don't know for PS3. Yes Big N can step it up a notch with the online, but only in time can we tell. An article every month, or every game that comes out with online support, complaining about FC and no voice chat gets bothersome don't you think?

    You don't even actually know anything do you? Your whole arguement is all wrong.

    PS2 and PS3 have free and better online like someone said

    Even if you had to pay for online like 360, you buy prepaid cards (no credit card required) once a year.

    Nintendo is currently the #1 selling console, they can afford to do better internet. But it's known by surveys done in Japan that around 80% of them do not care about online play because they think its "nerdy"

    and no, you're wrong Nintendo would not get sued. The controllers come with straps and every game that boots up they remind you to put the strap on. So NO, they cannot be sued.

    So no, they are not using that money to protect themselves for people getting hurt by not using straps lol? Where the hell do you think these things up.

    A note about the control scheme, I think that EA did a FANTASTIC job using the Wiimote for MOH H2

    And then Nintento did a piss poor job of using the wiimote in SSBB

    they've already done that in super mario rpg, Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga, super paper mario, and kinda in the SSE in brawl(against tabuu at the end)

    i think it would be better if bowser wasn't in the game at all, why do they always feel the need to include everyone.....

    they should just make a toad game against wart, it wouldn't be a new franchise, but it would be a good turn

    in my opinion, a new franchise every generation is good, gamecube we got pikmin

    wii, we got disaster, i like long series, so i don't want them to spend too much time on new franchises, i just wish some of the games story continues with the next game, kinda like oot and majora's mask
