Last week, Sony made a comment that the Wii owns the closet. Now Satoru Iwata has responded to that statement.
I still thinks that comment was funny. And honestly I have my PS3 and my 360 hooked up to my t.v. I'd have my Wii hooked up too but my brother uses it. My point is that there are usually enough inputs on a t.v. to hook up all your systems and leave them there.
lulz waggle in the closet, i mean, i wouldn't do it with people around. :)
I see a R.Kelly video down the line on youtube. :)
...and yet, my Ps2 gets a ton of play still, despite my PS3 and 360 ownership.
PS3 owns the store shelf
360 owns the back of a UPS truck.
...Forgive him Father, for he knows not what he does.
You mean to tell me Iwata, that the Wii is a console? BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA *in-hails* HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH *DIES OF EXTREME LAUGHTER*
@fear88 erm.. i do hope you understand what it means by console because it would be funny if you don't. MUAHAHAHAHAHA "i'm on the hills" WAHAHHAHAAHAH dohz
WOW the internet is getting corny and cornier ever time a new Wii games is announced? Nintendo already has the casuals and now the 3rd parties will bring them the hardcore. It's pretty simple go for the hard sell first the new comers that grounded many of you from playing video games to the one that will jump ship as soon as your fav game comes out. All that laughing is going to get real boring pretty soon. LOL At least you aren't all cursing because I know you are running out of things to say.
Personally the Wii interests me very little. I have always bought nearly every console every generation, but the Wii is a disappointment to me. Moreover, I know several people that bought into the Wii hype early on and now virtually never use their Wiis. If I actually owned a Wii it might not be in the closet, but it doubt I would be playing it much.
Haha... someone else musta said that about Nintendo's Wii... it wasn't Sony, right morganfell?
BUT YES, HE MAY BE RIGHT. ONLY THING IS THERE ARE MORE WIIS IN THE CLOSET THAN THERE ARE PS3S SOLD. I have owned a ps1/ps2 but I cant stand the way Sony keeps owning themselves. They are like the loudmouth that keeps talking after having their teeth knocked out.
The wii gathers dust while owning the closet. The 360 owns the Return center. The Ps3 owns my HDTV.
Wii owns the closet? I didn't think there was enough room in there for a Wii and morganfell. At least my PS3 fits snugly into the bin!
Wii owns the closet and the PS3 owns the trash can.
You mean like the garbage you write on N4G boi_sack? Why don't you sell your PS3 (if you have one...), if you think it's so trash.
It's just a piece of plastic. I use it to play games, I don't respect it or make love to it unlike some people. Take a chill pill, insult the X360 or something.
Killzone 2 rocks
I made my ps3 a waist coat
lol, Is that even possible?
Unlike you, I actually think all 3 systems are cool. They play great games. It's a piece of plastic.
But I really hate sack_boi....like...really... He's such a hater...hahaha. Get a life kid. I suggest you dig the ps3 out of the trash and donate it to a nearby science research center. They can use it to provide us with a cure for the swine flu!
bubbles for best response of the day, and for making me laugh! Sensible and pertinent
great insights you have there guys! i didnt know you could put a ps3 to good use! keep it up!
I think the point is that no system belong in the trash (preverbial or not) and its funny because of the silly cancer research thing and everyone going nuts over hte swine flu... You know not everyone on n4g spends their time trying to lobby for one console or another in some stupid competion ANd I'm not saying there isn't a so-called "console war" I'm saying that too jackasses arguing with each other over whether the 360 or ps3 is better when they have both made there choice is stupid
I think I'm going to make haste.
INCOMING FLAK! GET DOWN!
at least his respond is not, "HAHAHHAHAHAHAAHA"
Lol, not quite as snappy, but ownage nonetheless.
you look like mi ma!!
I find your stereoptypical depiction of Irishness deeply offensive.
well im just being myself mi hearty and maybe im just crazy!!
And I am from Dublin ye culchie!!! Still though the way you talk is the reason why Irish people are still seen as twinkly eyed f*ckers with a pig under their arm, stamping around the world going “I’ll paint your house now, but watch out I might steal your ladder, ho ho ho.” Which is only half true.
How can Iwata be responding to that, Sony's the victim here, everyone attacks them!/sarcasm I don't think he's actually responding to them anyway.
Sony are beneath Nintendo, with consoles and handhelds.
In quality, no. Not even close.
Super Mario Galaxy Metroid Prime 3 The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess Super Smash Bros. Brawl No More Heroes MadWorld Resident Evil 4: Wii edition House of the Dead 2 & 3 Return House of the Dead Overkill Manhunt 2 Mario Kart Wii Blast Works: Build, Tray, Destroy
8.2 - In sales, yes. In quality, no. Not even close. This statement is wrong. should be,"in sales, Yes" and "in graphics, no". Nintendo products are of great quality as good as Sony. If we're talking about games then also Nintendo first party games are always top quality also.
Shadow, Its sad that your own stupidity prevents you from games that are actually fun. Sad really, no more like pathetic.
Killzone 2 Metal Gear solid 5 Valkyria Chronicles Resistance 1/2 Ratchet and Clank Future Uncharted: Drake's Fortune Gran Turismo 5 Prologue Heavenly Sword Motorstorm 1/2 Folklore Flower LittleBigPlanet Warhawk And these games are actually good. The last half of your list sucks.

Wow. Anyway...I had my Wii hooked up to my 1080p projector in my home and guess what! It looked like ass. Certainly not meant to be blown up to 92". I tried it on my 32" TV in hopes that it would entice me to play it a bit more. It didn't. I think my wife put it best when she asked "Am I going to have to point this stupid remote thing at the TV the entire time I'm playing?" I sold it just before Christmas and have to admit...I feel pretty guilty about it. Like I'm not fit to be called a gamer anymore. I've supported Nintendo for years but I just did not like the Wii, no matter how hard I tried. Just one old guy's opinion.
what the heck... you own a 92' TV!?!? On topic- I don't think that 87% of people have their largest T.V. in the middle of their living room. I hope that the wii can really improve gaming in someway. Maybe all the new gamers are enough. I am trying to be optimistic, even though I don't like the wii.
It was a bit of a hard sell to get my wife on board when we were doing our basement renos but I'm so very glad we did. It's something to have Helghast running at you while you play and have them be FRIGGIN LIFE SIZED! And on that note, I'm going home to play some games. :)
did your wife by any chance sit in the opposite direction with the back facing the screen or holding the wii remote inversely? or is there any apparent deformities.. OOPS!
i know i might get attacked but Screw Nintendo
the Wii is a great family console, the PS3 is a great alrounder and the 360 is a good hardcore console.
Uhhh, OK Super Mario Galaxy Metroid Prime 3 The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess Super Smash Bros. Brawl No More Heroes MadWorld Resident Evil 4: Wii edition House of the Dead 2 & 3 Return House of the Dead Overkill Manhunt 2 Mario Kart Wii Blast Works: Build, Tray, Destroy
yeah it was terrible, i apologise
I hate lists of every good game a system has, just list the main ones, it makes a better impression. Super Mario Galaxy-Good Metroid Prime 3 The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess Super Smash Bros. Brawl No More Heroes MadWorld Mario Kart Wii i won't say that the wii doesn't have good games, but I think the PS3 has more. *note the I THINK*
" i won't say that the wii doesn't have good games, but I think the PS3 has more." So you are not certain about it...*deskslam* =P There is no need to list games btw, the one you are replying to won't take note anyway.
@cliffbo I think the ps3 is alot more hardcore then the 360, because if you think about it, ps3 has a few casual games, such ass little big planet and Buzz!, while the xbox ranges 100's of kids...i mean "casual" games, plus the ps3's shooting games are alot more intense, and alot harder. Gears of war campaign on insane is a joke.
" think the ps3 is alot more hardcore then the 360," O wow, now we have "hardcore" degrees between the 360 and PS3... Meh the longer i'm here at n4g the more i realise how much BS people keep throwing out. What you just said was pathetic. If you guys really are "gamers" you wouldn't even come up with such idiot nonsense.
Wii owns the closet! I bought the wii for my kid for $750. He doesn't even use it anymore because it's boring. He's 11 & says the wii is for babies. He asked me for a 360 or maybe a ps3.(even he knows the ps3 is a big purchase) You know what I did as the awesome parent that I am? I gave him my entire ps2 collection & bought a new controller for him. My son is very happy after his nintendo dissapointment because the ps2 has more & way better games. Sorry, 360 fans I didn't even think of getting a 360 because well the whole xboxlive, hardware & lack of anything new & exciting that breaks out of all the recycled clones of ps2 games. I want my child to grow up to advance & enjoy challenges. You just can't do that with a 360 because every game is 10 steps backwards in advancement. It's probly why it's fans get jerked on the regular .
" I gave him my entire ps2 collection & bought a new controller for him. My son is very happy after his nintendo dissapointment because the ps2 has more & way better games. " I take you already had a collection for your PS2, so what games for the wii did you get for him?
Hmmm.. all this time I thought you were 14 or something.
He's right here, take notes.
Chances are he is the 11 year old he speaks of.
Check out your birth certificate seferoth.
The wii is a complete joke, the stupid kiddie ds is for kids and lamers. Sony PSP and PS3 are the best.
i take it you like PS branded consoles then. you have to hand it to Nintendo though, they have done incredibly well with the Wii
The game cube was far from the worst, but it was the worst for a major company. I am surprised that they actually responded to sony. Both of the people before me: Sony made the comments about the wii before because they wasn't (or need) publicity before E3 to try to stage a comeback. Lets see what happens, I hope for a heck of a fireworks show.
The Gamecube may have sold bad but it was a brilliant machine, much more powerful than the PS2.
I agree with everything you say.... But pokemon is the sh1t!
