    Okay This has something to do with the wii. Lets say i had a sibling and he was such a freak/ wants Xbox360. He's older then me by 1 year 1 month and 10 days:wink:
    And he always talks about stupid Xbox360[Not being a fanboy or anything just saying that He keeps talking about it and it pi$$es me off] He WANTS the Xbox360. And we used to share our money until i split it because he wanted an Xbox360. And because im the youngest i get much more presents [Money :D]
    So im techinacly Richer then my older brother :lol: I can afford a wii bymyself
    Now I want a wii and he wants an Xbox360. What can ido to convince him to WANT the wii again. He always serached the internet and he techincaly knows everything... Nerdy... About the stupid Xbox360/Ps3 And all other systems...
    If we Share our money again we could get like 3 games and 2 contrlllers but without that i canot. So i was wondering what can i do to convince my bro to want the wii again...

    There is nothing you can do. Not if he already knows all about it and still isn't interested. Everyone will have their own preferences. The only way you MIGHT be able to sway him is when you get your Wii and let him play it. Then it may be better then he thought and he might like it.

She will pay for it with her CC but i will pay her back with my money so she can pay for her CC >=D So i think that we will get the wii first and then we i get it he will be sucked in and i won't let him play lol

    Here, ive worked on many "purswasive" essays, or hwoever you spell them, before.

    "Fine, if you dont feel like acuttaly swinging a sword, and would rather click a button, good for you. Stuff like free online and weather, news, and ever a web browser at your fingertips, isn't 360 a Microsoft product? And they don't even have like Internet Explorer? Talk about half-ass...Oh, and seriously spending 300-400 dollars on a system with "great graphics and games" well, the PC tops both of that! In a couple or so months, probably already now, thoes 360 graphics are going to be bettered(beaten). And a lot of the 360 games come out for PC anyways, with free online. So seriously!? Well Wii like already has more games than 360 had in its first what? 6 months? Call of Duty 3..Excite Truck..Red Steel..Super..Smash..Bros..BRAWL, so I ask you again, do you really want to spend gaming the next 5 years with the same old games, the same old conroller, and the same old sytle and schemes?

    Here is what happened when i said something similar to that. " Omg i don't care , " After i said :" Well don't expect mom to buy another next gen " then he said : " Ill make sure she will "
    After i said : "Yea right Good luck. By the way, your lost , next thing you'll see me do is swing a wiimote in my hand playing Legend of zelda " After he said " Well its not like mom is gonna let you get wii " After i said : " Oh yes she will, did i mention that she is agreeing with ME and not YOU,*Walks away*
    =\

    Well a few reasons why I want it:


    1.Cheap system/games
    2. The innovation of the controller
    3. WI-FI Ready
    4. Wii Connect 24
    5. Virtual Console
    6. Backwards compatible with GCN
    7. Internet surfing via Opera
    8. Free online gaming
    9. Somthing completley new, that the other system's don't have
    10. It's sleek and small
    11. Downloads system/game updates while you sleep or whenever
    12. Goes on "Standby Mode" to allow content updates while away
    13. No huge freaking power brick to power it
    14. Much better 3rd party support then last gen
    15. Zelda, Red Steel, and Metroid Prime 3 on launch
    16. The cool controller attatchments that will come along
    17. DS connectivitey (Supposedly, I don't know what for yet, I will look)
    18. Xbox Live costs money.
    19. Wii points, for those of us who don't have debit/credit cards
    20. Controller has a speaker, for interactive sounds
    21. Nintendo promised to expaned it's audience base (More M titles)
    22. Some actually good FPS and more of them
    23. GCN Mem and controller slots
    24. Comes in a few different colors same with controller (Eventually)
    25. SD mem card bay and USB ports
    26. Wii Chat like thing, let's you talk to other Wii owner's
    27. The channels will expand over time, allowing more features
    28. A special controller for classic virtual console downloads
    29. Graphics, are not bad at all. Very good looking, even for the weakest.
    30. Graphics get better over time (Compare PS2 to when it came out to now)
    31. An overall different, and fun system anyone can enjoy.

    That should be enough. If he still wants the 360, oh well. It's useless I guess. :(

    Brothers suck. Just ask your mum to chip in for some extra games, that's what I used to do.

    Just let him get a 360 and you get a Wii. I would rather have both consoles than have a few extra games for one of them.

    have you ever played a 360, or played online, then you would know how aweome it is, gameplay is alot, but its fun to play some hardcore games and not just a wimpy little zelda game

    thats one of my problems of getting the wii not that much "hardcore" games like on the other consoles eg oblivian and halo. BUT zelda is a sick game and there willl be red steel and metroid prime 3 and the racing games will be better coz of that hand moving thing.lol

    I guess the whole point is that no one can make a decision for someone else. It all comes down to what YOU want, and what other people want, and finding common ground if you need to collaborate. Everyone has a different opinion as to what constitutes a "good game", and people will always, ALWAYS, argue their point. Kinda off topic, I am aware, but it has to do with the console wars. Everyone needs to buy what they want to buy, and avoid forcing their opinions down other peoples throats.

    Case in point; If your brother doesn't want a Wii, you probably wont be able to talk him into it. And going behind his back to stop him from getting his Xbox 360 will only make matters worse, ie. fighting for the T.V. Enjoy what you can get when you can get it. If you can't afford the Wii yourself, wait until you can. If your brother can't afford the 360, he can wait until he can afford it aswell.
