Now they wait for Mario Kart, while 10,000 crap 3rd party games get released for the cash grab.

I don't care what anyone says the Wii is poison to the core gamer. God, how I hope MS and Sony don't ever venture down that mediocre path to appeal to grandmas and pre-teens at least on the major scale Nintendo has.

I'm looking at you Newton and Waggle.

super know when halo 3, came out and the x360 sold nearly half a million consoles, it was the wii that really surprised me, in what was the biggest 'entertainment launch ever' wii still sold more consoles then the I'm no wii fan, but its the wii's hay day now so credit where it's due...

edit: and also in hindsight, it were not the x360's year last year, it was the wii, not only did it sell record amounts its already took over the lead...damn that was impressive..and also this year, I know how everyone's saying it's the year of the ps3, and things have looked good, but in reality it's really been the Wii's year so's as if sony and Microsoft are so far behind they don't even look for first place no might change next year, but if I'm honest, last year, and this year thusfar it's been NINTENDO, all the way...Infact when hasn't it been Nintendo's way?
