"The Wii is nothing short of a phenomenon. Rising from the ruins of the Gamecube, the Wii has dominated the console war despite being the least technically robust console on the market. In less than two years, the Wii has a user base 50% bigger than the Gamecube amassed in five years. But astute research shows that the Wii also has the least critically acclaimed games. Unlike the Xbox 360 or the Playstation 3, the Wii is not selling because of a "killer app" like Halo or standing on the shoulders of a console giant like the PlayStation 2. The Wii has become a phenomenon because of Wii Sports and the thirty minutes of fun it provides."
