Wii Sports is, pack-in or not, the single biggest game in the Wii's library. Heck, for many Wii owners, it's probably the only game in their collection. So the sequel had better be good.
we could easy have a list of the top 100 from that one conference alone. and Wii Music will never match Rockband or Guitar Hero World Tour and infact Wii Music will cost more, The demo had: The Game £30 5 wii motes £25 Each 3 Knunchucks £15 Each Wii Balance Board £70 Not to mention a cameo apperence by M Night Shyamalan = Priceless
The biggest fail was the conference being mainly presented by that stupid woman rather than Reggie.
"Research into toddler market research and adult diapers!" LOL "Sony and Microsoft could’ve just bricked into each others coffees and they still would’ve won by default!!!" OMG ROFL I almost bricked my pants. HAHAHA!!! I guess I am glad I don't own a Wii. It means I am not under 10 or well over 90. hehe
she was talking to the audience like they were children. I was expecting her to pauze the conference so they could all take a nap
I think the most embarrassing part was the end when all the middle aged men and women were dancing and playing Wii music..
pretending like they were actually having a good time playing it.
Miyamoto entering the stage pretending to play an instrument and holding the Wiimote in front of his mouth was pretty embarrassing to me. In fact the entire WiiMusic presentation was pretty embarrassing.
how about the part when no one in the audience left when the woman started showing her family photos
The whole nintendo conference was nothing short of a shambles
Why is Reggie so freakin scary lookin' when he talks???
Two E3s back i actually liked the idea of the Wii but where they are focusing it has become very boring for me. I am well aware of their business strategy but forgetting the other crowd will decrease the respect most gamers have for Nintendo. I bet you next gen they will do everything to win their old fans back
let's go back a generation, shall we? the gamecube-19-21 million sold VS. the wii, already 26 (?) million sold it's a great business strategy to lose fans by winning back old ones isn't it? XD
if thats the best they can come up with, than this last two years was for nothing. imagine all nintendos innovation mixed in with a real nexgen system. now that would be something.
sony knows that quite well
i always thought one of nintnedos problem is the fact they can't get over their first 3 consoles. they keep rehashing the games from that era, mario this, zelda that etc... etc.. they can't come up with anything new, now with the wii their new IP games are lame, wii music, wii sports (come on it is a bunch of mini games i am talking full on worth the price games ala call of duty 4 types). every time they need a new game to come out, hell lets put mario in this or in that rinse lather repeat.
" they keep rehashing the games from that era, mario this, zelda that etc... etc.. they can't come up with anything new," If you had a company you would do the same, Why miss all that money ? Beside there are people who love the franchise and for young ones these games are great to begin with. Also Nintendo Can come up with new stuff, but you think its weird we have not seen new Ip's coming allong? 2 generations long they have been in trouble, so best thing they could do is rely on OLD Ip's.
always gives us something new with every generation of consoles. like naughty dog. playstation one crash ps2 daxter ps3 uncharted insomniac went from rachet to resistance and zipper went from socom to MAG and the best part is that they dont completly abandon their old franchises.
Funny thing is this whole E3 was bad to me, but for some reason you people really are taking the piss on nintendo. But LMAO funny pictures XD
The rise and fall of Nintendo? I doubt it but the Wii's life is short-lived.
then why does it keep selling more year over year?
I used to think playing the wii on the couch was embarrassing but doing it on stage with a sh!t ton people watching? That is a 4th grader in class accidentally crapping his pants embarrassing.
...right about that Auburn, lol. Let some kids practice with it and then put them on the stage. Don't embarass yourself, you're a corporate executive for goodness sakes!
The presenters that were playing Wii music as a band looked pretty dumb.
LMFAO great vid on the fans reaction LOL
or did anyone notice that none of their voices seemed to be in synch? Maybe they were employing a 7 second delay in case they said anything that wasnt towing the company line.
How about when whats his face from Bethesda was starting up Fallout3 and the joystick needed to be connected and everyone laughed and he went "Im good" how embarrasing.
modern "joysticks" are called controllers, but i didn't think that was that bad bad would have been someone playing the wii and accidentally letting go of the wiimote, where it flew into the projector, a conference attendee, or (hopefully) cammie dunaway (is that her name) but next time try combining your comments into one instead of posting three consecutive ones?
the lady from the nintendo conference freaked me out.
Pretty much Nintendo said F You to core gamers. I can't believe I spend one hour of my life watching that.
reggie told gttv that he had something BOTH casual and core gamers would like.... not something casual gamers will scratch their heads about (animal crossing) and something only ten year old kids or anyone with an IQ of less then 40 would buy (GTA... any GTA game)
sounds like it went bad
the wii is soo gay.. Sorry but what a piece of sh$t it is.
lol Gay.. I lost all respect for that dude.. He look like a complete douche bag..
not him. Just a guy who looks like him. Wiimusic no penalty's for mistakes its not really a game. Why bother?
that was one of the funniest articles i ever read on this site. the sad thing for nintendo: they weren't trying for laughs.
lets face it real gamers call wii what it was from the beginning...a fad...I love that they got exposed for the sham that the is..Hard core gamers already thought this system wasnt cool but to trot some soccer mom out there to kiss reggies fanny is a disgrace...wii isnt competing with 360 or ps3 because wii is hopeleesy outclassed by both...and reggie please stop trying to intertwine ds and wii numbers like its the same thing.
great article, I cant stop laughing
Wii must be the biggest fad in history. I feel sorry for all those consumers who got scammed by Nintendo. Wii is a fad that will last you prob atleast a month and never play it again but Reggie on the other hand IS STILL LOVING THE Wii! Please Reggie, please tell us, all your LOYAL Nintendo fans how you can put up with the Wii for a year and still ENJOY IT!
what a shame
