"If Wii newbies migrate to those games, we can start talking about Nintendo changing the entire culture of entertainment."
"Could the Wii be a short-lived fad? Not likely, but impossible to rule out. Could its converts - people with almost no previous gaming interest - turn out to be a relatively small pool of consumers? Sure."
"The "mom" factor shows signs of emerging as a Wii theme. Before the console launched, there was considerable speculation about whether the Wii could draw in meaningful numbers of new women players. But consider this tale from the blogs:
"I also brought my Wii console home for Christmas, and my mother, who I have never seen try any game except for 'Tetris' in her life, after seeing what my brothers and I were doing, asked to play some 'Wii Sports' tennis! It was definitely a moment to get out the camera and take a picture!"
"I thought she would enjoy it and then let others play. No! She proceeded to play game after game for over an hour! I have been completely amazed at how the Wii brought that out of her (finally!) and how she can now appreciate my love for gaming."
