Speaking to Next-Gen.Biz from X06 today, Peter Moore talked about the 'Xbox Wii-60 movement' and how up to 40% of 360 owners could also be playing Nintendo's Wii.
I think it's good that a console company can praise the benefits of another console.
waste of a post...
by the way i think 360 is a good console and should alone justify being bought.
i dont think wii is worth even its cheap price for mature gamers. i mean after a few hours you would just get tired of that controller thing.
360 could and is an alternative to ps3 but 360-wii vs ps3 is just again 360 vs ps3 but costing more...
just my thought...
I myself am 23 years of age and I found the gamecube most fun out of last gens seeing that I had 50 + games for it. I did have 40 some odd games for xbox but 30 for ps2.
I say this because of the last part of his comments. Will the Wii be okay as a stand alone player. Well seeing with me not even the 360 or the ps3 would be enough. I, like many of my friends need many many different consoles to keep the balance out. I even have the gba, ds, and psp. Like my name stats I'll have the ps3, Wii, and already have the 360. So people need more than one console if they want a full experience.
I think that some of your bubbles should be taken away as all you seem to do it post negative posts against the Wii and the Xbox 360. You also vote lame on the xbox 360 and Wii articles but vote cool on all the PS3 articles. Are you a litte 12 year old boy with nothing better to do than try to get some love and attention on the internet when not many people care. Get off the computer and get some love and attention from your mum and dad unless they really don't love you. Now, stop being a fanboy and shut up.
look who voted Lame:
What else is new eh..The 360 will be my console of choice and the Wii will 3rd, but becasue of the price I might get one at launch. Ofcourse because of Zelda.PS3 will come much later. There is too much good stuff happening around the 360 right now.
Very childish "PS3OWNESXBOX360 ". You should only have "read only" priveliges to this forum.
Unless Microsoft intends to buy Nintendo for all its worth, Moore is insulting the more intelligent lot of us when he pretends to side with Nintendo. Nintendo is a competitor, and since it's introduction into the market will possibily detract the sales of the 360, Microsoft has every reason to squish this company.
Now, if Moore and Microsoft were like me in that I praise competition for the sake of competition, then I want them to do this. Give Nintendo a good chunk of financial backing, without any strings attached. Because in my realm, Capitalism should be regarded as a race to win the audience and to become stronger. If there is no competition, what praise will you achieve when you pass the finish line? How will you assess your strengths and weaknesses?
That's the philosophy Moore should be mentioning. Not this condescending garbage.
Nintendo is not considered competition for the 360 or PS3. If you buy a Wii you are buying it for the Wii-mote effect and the first party titles. The Wii is not just a small step down from the 360 though it's a small step up from the Gamecube. There will be mamy , many games coming out for the 360/PS3 thar can't be done on the Wii. What Nintendo did is make the perfect companion console for older gamers and a GREAT console for the younger crowd. I for one will go the Wii60 route.
I'm not criticising Nintendo, I'm emphasizing it! Regardless of what Moore says, or what you say, Nintendo is a competitor fighting for the interest of the common consumer like you and I. Believe it. They're a corporation, just like Sony and Microsoft. None of them is a savior of any sort. It's business.
What I'm saying is that because the Wii is so attractive in its price, there's reason to believe that its introduction in the market will detract the sales of the 360. We can at least agree on this on die-hard Nintendo fans alone! Thus, Microsoft has little reason to NOT see Nintendo as a Competitor.
When Moore roots for Nintendo, he's not actually supporting it at all (although he does respect it obviously). He's actually vying for the interests of Microsoft, which is fair and fine, not evil.
And believe me, if the Wii becomes VERY successful and it appears that it does detract from sales of the 360 (and the PS3), Moore will be singing a different tune. No more "Wii is not a competitor" non-sense.
Hence, that's why I think it's foolish what Moore is doing. He may actually make things worse for Microsoft! That's not a risk worth taking, and I'm sure some Microsoft investors are saying the same thing.
You know #6 I think that you are an over-weight virgin that can't live without Sony. You sit back and say that Microsoft is nothing and it will die, but the one thing that is dying a slow death is Sony. Right now Sony is hurting themselves because of what they are doing, and if that doesn't change expect them to fail. All the games that Sony said can only be done on the PS3 is in fact a lie because Assassin's Creed is on the 360 and it looks just like the PS3 version. Now I will get a PS3 down the road, but right now Microsoft's games are catching my eye. If you want to call me anyname go ahead but you are just proving to everyone that you are in fact a total loser that cannot leave without sony. Also if you want examples of how Sony is hurting themselves I'll be more then happy to tell them to you.
...I guess I'm in that 40% as I will have a 360 and a Wii. I'm fine with it, it gives my gaming more variance.
i dont like PS3 and i dont like xbox BUT i like HALO......... sorry cant think of something for PS3.......but i will ow them all eventuely.
i think the things he is saying are things i respect allot......( about that nintendo may not even know what kinda of power they have in them hands..its like a compliment)
ill get Wii 8th december.......and will enjoy it just like i will with my 360 and Ps3.
Okay...I love Nintendo and have been playing it from the beginning of the 8 bit. I'm going to buy the Wii, but will I be happy...probably, but not to my fullest...Marginal Utility comes into play here and it is the result that nintendo brings to the gaming industry a different style. I believe that the PS3 and Xbox360 are the same thing or offer the same experiences. Wii offers something different, something that is not done by either of the two...I see no sense in buying a PS3 and Xbox360 becuase most games are ports, and yada yada yada...It's going to be the Wii and variable X considering who brings out the bigger and smarter guns...I believe that Wii no matter what, will not be dead last, but who knows, just my opinion...I would love to see the xbox and Wii thrive becuase I never really enjoyed the PS systems for some reason other than the sports games. So in a positive way...Microsoft is giving the consumer who has a 360 to give the Wii a try...this would further imnplicate is plan of a Wii60 takeover of Sony where microsoft will have the bargaining power to takeover Sony with an increased marketshare of the gaming market...This will not happen because Sony is not some rookie industry and I think they know what their doing or will be doing in the future.
People buy systems for there games, Its that simple.You will either buy a 360, buy wii or ps3, or you get all three, or you can also buy ps3 and wii and wii 360 combo. Its all up to the consumer! not the companys.
What's the matter Moore? I thought your philosophy was to give gamers the choice? So stop telling them to buy a 360 and a wii. If they wanna ps3, then they should be allowed to choose to buy that too.
It's a joke. So isn't the Xbox 360 a good enough console to beat the PS3 itself? Does even Peter Moore think his console needs help to beat the PS3, because its just not as good as the ps3 is?
Peter Mooron, stop scraping with nintendo and fight your own battles. Maybe if you had designed the 360 better, then it could beat the ps3 itself
he forgots that 100% of the xbox players will own a ps3? whats with that ? what a moron.
