    haha pretty passive agressive towards the wii there. but the guy has it right about households having a wii60, with the 360 living well along with the wii.

    Why do you keep posting these flame articles? Seriously, these are just PR crap articles made to slant favor.

    So why not post some alternative ones instead of bashing people who at least try to engage the community?

    Cool on the article and an A+ for Microsoft at least trying to accept people may choose a Wii over a 360 and remedying the situation. I don't mind 360, and I might even choose it over a PS3 if I get some extra money in the future but right now I think even their console is too expensive.

    Really what needs to be realized is the price of games, $50-60 is just ridiculous in my opinion (as I don't have an "income").

    That isn't flame. I think its very respectable. Microsoft acknowledged the wii as a popular system and is now trying to cooperate with the wii rather than run it out of business.

    OMG i'm really beginning to hate microsoft now. It should be the other way around. People need to "graduate" from the 360 and move on to the revolutionary nintendo wii. I say this because I believe that the next consoles will all have motion-sensing capabilities to the wii's extent, because it's just so much better than those old-school analog sticks. But that's just my opinion.

    N-no, because the wii's motion sensor is copyrighted(if im right) why do you think the ps3 is only 6 axis, not 12.


    The wii uses analog sticks.

    No, I don't want another gaming PC (which is essentially what the 360 and PS3 are), I already have one. Why would I play COD 4 in 720p or 1080p on the 360 (not sure what resolution it is) with a gamepad when I could play with my kbd/mouse in 1920x1200 :ciappa: Thats why I got a Wii...to get a unique experience. I realize there are some 360-only games that are good (Mass Effect), but not enough to make me ditch my PC.

    That doesn't mean that other consoles couldn't have motion sensors


    Well yea it uses one, but it's not used for something that needs more precision like aiming.

    Xbox360 is a ripoff....I already have the wii for gaming, some of my friends have a 360 which is still broke by the way, and I'd rather get a PS3 for bluray movies plus you'll get free online service

    actually it's beleieved that it would be the wii and ps3 because back when playstation was made nintendo was going to sign a contract with sony but backed out of the deal to go with the phillups cd-i, I still beleive they could sign together

    What a sack of whining turds. This article is in no way flaming the Wii, infact its somewhat promoting the Wii60! Which IMO is the best Combo.

    wow, this is exactly whats not needed. whether you like it or not wii isnt a great "single console" to own unless youre a complete fanboy (and fanboyism is for stupid people who like to limit their gaming).

    @pYRo: Are you really saying people need to move to a Wii because they're now just bored of their first loves? I think it should be the other way around, at least when you get a secondary console the other gets decent attention until something new comes out for the previous console (and 08' is the Wii's year baby).

    We've known this one for a while. It makes a hell of a lot of sense.
    360 pretty much gives every1 PC quality titles for 1/10th the price of an equivalently powered PC... Meanwhile Wii gives everyonean experience unlike any other for even less of the price. *gahhh I'm so torn!!* (Buys a PC and a Wii).

    Limit my gaming? So by buying a system that is dominated by the first person shooter I'm not limiting my gaming but by buying a system with a smaller set of very diverse games I am limiting my gaming? I don't think the word "limit" means what you think it means.

    Whether you like it or not, a lot of people buying a Wii aren't traditional video game console owners. They don't buy into this "generation" and "console war" crap and don't have the time or inclination to buy more than one video gaming system. They weren't even looking to buy a video game system. They just saw/played/heard about the Wii and decided to get one for themselves or their kids since it was relatively cheap and fun. If the only video game systems out today were the 360 and the PS3, these people wouldn't have bought anything.

    Kudos to Microsoft for realizing that these people really do exist and their effort to get those people to buy a Microsoft console, too. Now if they could just get some games together that might appeal to this sort of video game player...
