    Good read. +1 Rep. I agree with everything for the most part, but I just hope the 3rd Party Developers will soon realize that the Wii best emulates the ultimate FPS controls: Mouse and Keyboard. I want to see more "hardcore" games like Gears etc. on the Wii. The one thing I disagree about is the balance board, that seems more like a gimmick than an actual innovation.

    Thanks for the info. Nintendo will definately win this Christmas. SSBB will probably sell more then SMG did in a week.

    Meh, I still think the Wii is a casual gamer system. I hope they can get away from that soon. No more mini games for the love of god.

    Sega was always meant to bow down to Nintendo.

    Nice Article...

    The Wii is still a baby, and can only get better... With firmware updates available on-the-fly, there's no telling what will come in the future...

    I also think that the Wii is more aimed at a casual gamer. I love it, don't get me wrong, and it pleases me immensely that it sells more units that 360 and PS3, but it's still an infant...and though many of you stay in denial...graphically inadequate compared to 360 and PS3. I was astoundingly disappointed with Metroid 3 and and Super Mario Galaxy from a graphical perspective...I was really hoping that some of these cornerstone titles for the box could push the envelope, but really, I've still seen nothing that the Wii can do graphically that they couldn't do on the Cube.

    And the control schemes for FPS...Metroid was light years ahead of the control schemes for Red Steel and some of the earlier shooters, it's still no keyboard and mouse. Metroid in my opinion is the only one that's better than the gamepad control of an FPS.

    Mario Galaxy...what can I say? The game is extremely fun, but it is also by far the easiest platformer in the Mario series. Through half the game, I haven't talked to many people that have broken a sweat. Many of the stars/levels are almost as easy as just walk through and get your star at the end. Though the challenge level starts to move up a little the further you get, it's still a footnote in Mario history as far as the challenge. My son beat it through 60 stars in a couple of days and only had a handful of levels he had to replay more than once or twice.

    I love my Wii...but in the long run, you can argue against it being a casual gamers machine...but it's an uphill argument...besides, who says a "hardcore gamers" machine wins the console wars anyway? I think casual gamers out number the "hardcore" gamers 10 to 1.

    However, "Nintendo is Unstoppable" is a bad attitude to have. Why, you ask? I PROMISE you that's the same attitude Sony had when as they were getting ready to put the PS3 on the market. Look where they are now.

    Sony still can't make a good game console. They die after about seven years.

    I agree wholeheartedly with that statement. The console has great potential for more than just party games. I know House Of The Dead is still in the works and with more great stuff coming out for it soon like Nights, SSBB its just a sign of great things to come.

    I keep telling you guys. If Microsoft and Sony battle it out for second place, they will only grow the gap between them and the Wii. One has to fall in 2008 or you can count the Wii the winner for this console wars. 2008 will be the deciding year. If Sony thinks 2009 will give them a come back, they are crazy. They need to gain ground now. Microsoft knows this and it's amazing they are halfway to 26 million units. In the last console wars it took them 5 years to get there.

    Too bad HOD is going to be a port of the of an old game and aparently it isn't visually pleasing. I want more original IPs and not ports.

    Good Point.
    And the Wii, won't make it easy for them.

    Mario Kart, Wii Fit, Brawl, StarFox, Animal Crossing, Disaster..the list goes on.
    And possibly, new Wii's in the form of colours and etc.
    It'll be tough.

    Mostly Off topic- Is anyone following King's Story. That games looks very solid. It has somewhat of a Pikmin gameplay and a very cool story line.

    2008 is the defining year for this gen.

    i know you probably dont feel this way but people should quit whining and figure out its not Nintendos fault they actually care about their games so every one is bomb, and third parties dont so every other one is a mini game collection or port.

    A couple of things. I like my Wii and enjoy the games i get on but lets get a few things straight.

    The third party is never going to take it seriously. Their big budget projects are still on the PS3 and Xbox 360. Why??? The Wii is a device that allows for anyone to use it with ease, its not really a major gamer device.

    Just take a look at the charts currently ... the Wii only has 5 spots in the top 20 and that number really should only be 4 as Wii play (number 2) shouldn't exactly count.

    Those games are, Metroid, Mario Party, Carnival Games (wtf), and My sims.

    Simply put, they are casual gamers, people that buy Pretty Pony's 4. So why exactly should I put a big budget project on that console?? The Wii has the most consoles sold but only the number 7 spot on game charts.
    (NPD source)

    To put it simply, the Wii is a fad. Everyone wants one just to want one because it is currently the cool thing to have.

    Yes it has great games on it and i hope that it continues to have good games. But the only really good games are STILL the ones from Nintendo and with MORE IMPORTANTLY with NO major third party developments announced.

    The PS3 in japan is already starting to bite at the Wii's momentum in Japan outselling it for two weeks and win FF13 comes out it will be all over.
