    Yay, more propaganda that the Wii will fail. They just don't give up will they? At this rate, 5 or more years from now, they will say there prediction finally came true.

    Third-party abandonment? Not a huge loss seeing as Nintendo is very supportive of it's own games (and frankly, where most of its hits come from). Really I think the media and their stupid predictions is the reasons Ninty's CEO's are holding back - after so much I think this should just motivate them to prove the world wrong.

    Wait, if 3rd parties are supposed to jump ship...then why is Factor 5 back to making Nintendo games? Or does this guy actually have proof to back up his claim? Why doesn't he fault the PS3, which has worse software sales with most of its exclusives selling poorly?

    Someones caps-lock is broken *rolls eyes*

    @The question as to why the author isn't pointing our Sony's flaws, well... answer is simple. It's a Wii article and I believe the author was more of a Microsoft/ Sony fan in the first place.

    I could not agree more. Nintendo's greatest accomplishments are home-brewed!

    The media just look for anything they can use to get a charge out of the public.

    Maybe because if they don't already own it, they can't stop playing it...?

    I stop playing my Wii. Im waiting for Mario Kart and maybe SSBB, after I get tired of those ill stop playing again because hardly anyone outside of Nintendo is doing good.

    Hmm, No More Heroes, Disaster Day Of Crisis, Red Steel 2?
    Some good games right there, I personally am looking forward to those.

    Will those games EVER come out (aside from NMH, which looks really...blah)?

    Everyone keeps telling us to WAIT for the big titles and the great games.

    When exactly are these games going to finally arrive? We've got a few great first party titles, but that's about it. Is that enough to sustain a console?

    its not an opinion its a fact, the wii isnt selling as much software as it should. hardware is one thing but software is what keeps the system alive.

    I know that there are four games I am looking foreward to coming out and/or buying when I have to money:

    1)Brawl
    2)Mario Kart
    3)Guitar Hero 3(i know it's out, I just need the money to buy it)
    4)MLB 2K8

    Those are the four games I plan on getting this year. I may add more if an extraordinary title comes out.

    Well itsn't that Nintendo's plan? To get all the hardware out right now, and then to invest more in software. They have already said they will be putting more into their online services this year which must mean there are more online games on the horizon (SSBB and MK in the near future and other Mario Sports titles in the more distant future).
