Consoleme.ca writes: I consider myself to be a hardcore gamer. I'm currently playing the PS3, Xbox 360 and PSP with a touch of PC gaming to keep things spicy. It's well documented that the Nintendo Wii no longer caters to the traditional hardcore gamers that have made it so successful in the past and the most recent Nintendo press conference at E3 did nothing to win the hearts and minds of the Nintendo faithful. We all know that the Wii is being snatched up by casual gamers who like to have a gaming system around that is easy to learn and increasingly trendy. Sure Wii Sports can be fun - if you are drinking with your friends or trying to show Mom and Dad that games aren't intimidating and overly violent. However, I still can't bring myself to buy one. The graphics leave much to be desired, the games offered are almost laughable in their immaturity and the only carrot that Nintendo has dangled for the hardcore is an casual remark that Mario and Zelda games are in development. Well no kidding.
