    Hey guys, currently doing a paper about Wii as an innovation in relation to consumer behavior. There's been a lot of talk about it outselling and winning hearts of consumers over high-tech and 'better' consoles such as XBOX and Playstation 3. Being an avid gamer both on console and the PC I find this topic pretty interesting, so just to hear what you guys had to say about it. Below is a survey that I'm handing out to most of my gaming friends and I'd love to get your take on things. If you have alot more to say about Wii and its innovativeness, feel free to just comment or give any feedback. Thanks for your time :)

    Nintendo of Australia needs to pull their head in. I'm sick of waiting for Wii games, we suffer monstrous delays, and pay a fair bit more as well. Something needs to be done - I'm getting tired of it.

    If Not, why? __________________________________

    6.If you own your Wii console, did you think you received value for the price it was sold for?
    Yes / No
    If Not, why? ___Yes, in fact it's slightly cheaper than it should be based on quality._

    7.Do you think Wii is an easy console to learn to play?
    [X] Yes, and why __any casual gamer should be able to pick up the motion controls and basic gist of the buttons etc. in about 30 minutes. Advanced techniques like using the pointer accurately in a shooting game may take an hour but still overall very easy.
    [ ] No, and why ______________________________

    8.What is your opinion on the motion-sensitive Wii Controllers (Numchucks)?

    (It's nunchuks). The motion controls are great but I would have to say some games get to into it and have you doing stupid and rather superfluous motions. But when the games get it right, such as Metroid, Resident Evil, and Mario Strikers, they totally enhance the gaming experience.
    __________________________________________
    __________________________________________

    9.Does the controller and sensor live up to your expectations?
    [X] Yes, and why _The pointer and motion controls are very responsive. The only thing I don't like is you need to buy a seperate charger.
    [ ] No, and why ______________________________

    10.Do you think Wii is very playable? (eg. You can play it for a long time? Or does it feel too shallow or is it easy to be bored compared to other console offerings)
    [X] Yes, and why __At the moment there's not a large selection of good games out. But a year from now there will be tons, such as Medal of Honor, Smash Bros, Mario Kart, etc., and 3rd party developers will probably see the money to be made in Wii games and start putting out quality Wii games as well. EA has already started.
    [ ] No, and why ______________________________

    11.What do you think about each of the 3 consoles out on the market today?
    Wii __Ultimate Party Console. Has great potential for more hard-core games as well if they IR pointer and motion controls are well-implemented._
    Playstation 3 _Amazing graphics, but only a handful of good games at the moment. There's more on the way though, such as Metal Gear Solid 4. But, the price is just too high, even the hard-core gamers (not me) are iffy about purchasing it._
    XBOX 360 _Matches the Wii if not slightly out-does it. Great game selection, the best out right now. Though the online cost money, you get what you pay for. It has Gears of War, Halo 3, Mass Effect, and tons of other awesome games. If I played video games more in general, this would be my purchase, but since I don't play a whole lot I went with the $150-cheaper Wii which is still great for my gaming needs._

    12.In your opinion, is there anything that can be done to improve the Wii console? Or is there anything that it is lacking so far?

    Like I said earlier, it lacks a strong game set right now. Once Smash Bros, Mario Galaxy, etc. come out, (in the next year they'll be out), the Wii's popularity will continue to increase, which hopefully motivates 3rd Party Developers to start putting time into making Wii Games. So far most of the 3rd party games for the Wii have been utter crap, or simple ports of their Xbox versions, with unnecessary Wii Motions thrown in as a gimmick. One example is Splinter Cell Double Agent, which is a great game on Xbox, but was terrible on Wii, even though Tom Clancy is one of the best game developers. So, in conclusion, REAL 3rd Party support and stronger online gaming (right now you need friend codes to play online with most games and there's no voice chat which is a real downer) are the only big problems with the Wii.

    6.If you own your Wii console, did you think you received value for the price it was sold for?
    Yes / No
    If Not, why? __________________________________

    7.Do you think Wii is an easy console to learn to play?
    [x] Yes, and why ..Controls arent that hard to pick up. i learned each new game within a half hour. feels natural in most games.
    [ ] No, and why ______________________________

    8.What is your opinion on the motion-sensitive Wii Controllers (Numchucks)?
    awesome idea. Nintendo really made a good console. makes the games so much mroe immersive.
    __________________________________________

    9.Does the controller and sensor live up to your expectations?
    [x] Yes, and why _____everything i expected from it. of course its not perfected yet..
    [ ] No, and why ______________________________

    10.Do you think Wii is very playable? (eg. You can play it for a long time? Or does it feel too shallow or is it easy to be bored compared to other console offerings)
    [ ] Yes, and why ______________________________
    [ ] No, and why as of right now im bored with my console. the game library is still small and i've played/bought all the games i wanted to up untill this point and i have to wait another month for a good game to be released.

    11.What do you think about each of the 3 consoles out on the market today?
    Wii : great, fun, original console. backwards compatibility is awesome and so is teh VC and internet channel and the other promising channels coming out soon. the Wii has a great interface and some pretty fun games.
    Playstation 3 :raw power, decent ammount of games-more to come of course. i'd love to own one but the price is an issue for me. the price reduction made it affordable but its not worth buying just yet for a few reasons, Games, Graphics not to full potential yet, and HOME isnt out yet.
    XBOX 360 :Best game of the 3 consoles, but also the most faulty. the red ring of death needs to be worked out andi beleive its just about taken care of but that doesnt make up for the last 2 years. of course it has the best-and most expensive online available today.

    12.In your opinion, is there anything that can be done to improve the Wii console? Or is there anything that it is lacking so far?
    games, games, games. and i beleive the graphics arent being pushed to the wiis limits due to half-assed ports of last gen games.

    7.Do you think Wii is an easy console to learn to play?
    [X] Yes, and why: It's as easy as any other modern console.
    [ ] No, and why ______________________________

    8.What is your opinion on the motion-sensitive Wii Controllers (Numchucks)?
    It's a fun innovation. I enjoy it a lot and think it's better than classic controllers. I do think that third party developers have problems programming for the controller making gameplay on some games bad. The Nunchuck is necessary for the optimal gaming experience.

    9.Does the controller and sensor live up to your expectations?
    [X] Yes, and why: It makes playing more fun as I expected.
    [ ] No, and why ______________________________

    10.Do you think Wii is very playable? (eg. You can play it for a long time? Or does it feel too shallow or is it easy to be bored compared to other console offerings)

    [ ] No, and why ______________________________

    11.What do you think about each of the 3 consoles out on the market today?
    Wii: Very fun, nice new innovations, great exclusive games.

    Playstation 3: Don't know much about PS3. Graphics look great but the gameplay is still the same as on my older consoles which is why I don't want one.

    XBOX 360: Good graphics. Also lack of innovation. Looks better than the PS3.

    12.In your opinion, is there anything that can be done to improve the Wii console? Or is there anything that it is lacking so far?
    I don't like wireless controllers because they require batteries. I would prefer the possibility of wired wiimotes that don't require batteries. Voice chat in online games would be a great improvement.

    Thanks

    Cheers for spending the time and effort to complete the survey. It's been very helpful and shows how Wii is really trying to expand the scope of the console player-base.

    I'm currently doing a few more rounds of surveying with my friends, and hopefully get around to do some of the gaming stores. I'll post what I've found up here after the data collection for those of u interested to have a different take on the gaming culture.

    Thanks again :)
    (This message should not discourage anyone to take the survey! Because the more the better :lol: )
