    Like a comment on the article we shouldn't worry about who's "winning the war." We as gamers should be glad when a good game comes out, regardless if it's on the "losing" system. Take a look at last Gen, GC had some good game even though it sells weren't comparable to PS2.

    I can understand why developers want to know who'll "win" so they can develop their game on that system and make money. But for me I could careless the result. If a system has a nice line up of games I want I'll get it : )

    Its going to be decided in 2008 really. Each company has big things planned, it will be interesting to see how it plays out. Wii Price drop won't come till 2009 most likely.

    HAHAHA Yeah...This coming from the Boss of THQ...Not that it has much relevance, but they can't developed a good game if their life depended IMO...They killed the Avatar, and Cars well...

    The opinion of THQ hmm..

    Lets see the best selling game they have had is Rugrats:search for Reptar for PS1 and it is just over 3 million. ha ha that says it all right there!

    The only thing they sell well at is the Wrestling and Disney games. And for the most part that fan base will be on the Wii, lol so they better hope it wins for there own pocket books sake.

    I would take more intrest in a well researched 5th grader than that of a THQ management.

    The only thing good I can think of by THQ...might be "de Blob" which looks sweet and should hit Wii this year. Other than that I can't think of one AAA game published by them.

    Do you guys remember when square enix made final fantasy the movie. Man it was the best Cg out at that time and square just knew every one and their mother where going to see it. I though so too yet no one did even the boot leg did not do that good. Stuff like shrek killed it.

    Man i tell you all this tech really is impressing people these days. Most people are not worried about the price yet 250 would be cool but thats not going to happen. these HD guys have painted them selves in to a hardcore gamer corner. Which means they will want cheaper consoles and higher quality games. Can THQ even produce these higher quality games?

    Well their current developers have the creator of battle chasers among their ranks. It's safe to say they could totally rock. Saying the Wii has not won yet is just fact yet it seems like the winner right now. Every thing else is talk and promises. Yet out of the two HD systems I can only see the xbox 360 going toe to toe price wises yet no one will buy one until the RROD is totally fixed. I mean thats one of the problems why people don't have vista it doesn't like low spec machines at all.

    Notice how you don't see square enix , sega, or konami talking like this. THQ is a US mostly 360 kind of player right now.
