Top 3 Reasons to Get a Wii? Im real curious on what makes you want a Wii It can be anyhting as long as it has to do with the Wii -_- I got this idea because of this article that states the top 10 things that will save the nintendo wii The Arsenal That Will Save Nintendo #10: The Wiimote #9: Red Steel #8: WarioWare: Smooth Moves #7: Wii Sports #6: Virtual Console #5: EA's Heavy-Hitting Third Party Support #4: Super Smash Bros. Brawl #3:Metroid Prime 3: Corruption #2: Mario Galaxy #1:The Legend of Zelda: The Twilight Princess Well my top reasons would be (note this is all OPINION...NO FLAMES!) #3: CONTROLLER!- Well after the unvieling of the controller at TGS 05, all the rumors on what the controller would be came to an end. Allaround the world people had many mixed opinions on it including myself. Eveyone thought, "That looks weird. How does it work?" and many other opinions like NINTENDO IS GOING DOWN and stuff like that looks badass. As many soon realinzed what the motion sensing controller could do, many saw the possibilities EVEN THE COMPETITON which led, IMO to SONY's lame rip off of the tech into the DUAL SHOCK 3 controller, which they claim to have been an idea they have had for quite some time(*cough*bullshit*cough*) Establishing a new way to play games, the wii-mote, as fans dubbed it, will fully bring a player into a game. Sensing the controllers movement with the help of a sensor bar, the wiimote is a unique and new way to play some established genres. #2: VIRTUAL CONSOLE AND GC PLAYBACK!- Hmm well, I love playing my gamecube games and liek with the NES and SNES and N64, I was afraid that id have to keep the hardware after the newest console was released. But my fears were put to rest at the 2005 E3 show(right?) where the Revolution(the name at the time) was shown to the press and was unvieled to be able to play all the gamecube games of the past consoles history. What also made the wii more wanted by the press at the showing was the announcement of the ability to be able to download classic NES SNES and N64 games. That alone made the wii one of the most wanted consoles for anyone, including me. The idea that any of the old classics from your childhood to be revived for a low fee made anyone's mouth water. What totally shocked others and made some rumors true was the news at the 06 GDC where Sega(or was it nintendo?) officially announced that thoussands of games from sega's past and games from the turbofrafx. Classic Sonic on a Nintendo console LEGALLY!!! IMPOSSIBLE! but it will be done by the end of thisyear. Also, Satoru Iwata also has said that, liek the XBOX 360's Marketplace, youd be able to download content for games that you currently own and also will be able to download some new games from indie developers. #1: Super Smash Brothers Brawl- Come on, anyone who has had a gamecube has once in their lives played this game, unless youre those few that just bought the GC for RE4, but there are still chances. One of my favorite gamecube games' sequel is shaping up to be a very good looking game(not graphics wise) and having been announced to be one of the first online wii games made the game oh the much more better. Who hasnt thought of playing SSBM online? With, hopefully a whole new cast of characters, including the old ones, Brawl will pit some of nintendo's top franchises against eachother and even some characters from 3rd parties, SNAKE!!!. Some of the so far announced characters look so amazing in the video they had showed off in the past E3. With Pit returning to a video game sicne his Kid Icarus debut and Meta Knight kicking other nintendo character's ass, this game is my most anticipated game currently.
