Although Wii sales have been slipping over the last few months, the console is still doing quite fine overall. People have been quick to say that its prosperity on the market is spiraling downward
There's no denying that the Wii has been slipping these past few months. But to say that the system is in a great deal of trouble in the market really is crazy.
It's in trouble... because it's not selling as well. But it's still selling basically more than any other console. I can imagine what Nintendo are thinking 'UH oh sales have dropped below 400k, we make profit on every console. The DS is still going strong... PANIC TIME!'
Gotta love the Wii fail on LIVE NATIONAL TV:
The system itself is doing amazing. However the perception of the company of Nintendo is not good. You can no longer rely on Nintendo to make great games anymore. A lot of people who actually buy the games won't buy the next Wii that comes out.
Mario Galaxy says "hello".
They were doing well, but they sacrifice gamers in order to get casuals, this affect in the long term, let say next gen
-Super Smash Brothers: Brawl -The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess -Metroid Prime 3 -Metroid Prime Trilogy (Collector's Game) -Super Mario Galaxy (Currently the Highest Rated Exclucive Game This Generation) -Fire Emblem: Radiant Daw -Punch-Out -Mario Kart Wii -Super Paper Mario -Zelda (Upcoming Wii title (U.W.T.)) -New Super Mario Bros. Wii (U.W.T.) -Metroid Other M (Team Ninja X Nintendo (U.T.W.) -Sin and Punishment 2 (U.W.T.) -Super Mario Galaxy 2 (U.W.T.) Wow, Look at all of that support from Nintendo to the core gamer. Not to mention if Nintendo truly left the core/hardcore gamer, they would have never licensed titles like The Conduit, MadWorld, Monster Hunter 3, No More Heroes, Muramasa etc. Now here is a little homework: Compare all of core/hardcore titles you have just seen (which is not even all of them) to the "casual" titles like Wiisports, Fit, Music, etc. In the end, what do you get? More Support to the "Gamer" than the "casuals". [Naturally I Might have a slew of nutless fanboys mark "Disagree" left and right.]
nintendo has been 90% garbage this generation wake me up when the new zelda comes out
So I guess you you didn't even bother looking at the Wii games FM listed, huh? Turning a blind eye towards a list of good wii games? You'll fit in just fine on this site.
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ hey genius, "Super Smash Brothers: Brawl -The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess -Metroid Prime 3 -Metroid Prime Trilogy (Collector's Game) -Super Mario Galaxy (Currently the Highest Rated Exclucive Game This Generation) -Mario Kart Wii -Super Paper Mario " i own these games, i didn't buy fire emblem cause i've never played any of the games and i don't like tactic style rpgs and i didn't buy punch out cause it's basically the same game that's on the nes. the majority of the games on the wii are garbage. that is a fact
You mean your opinion. Weather you like them or not, those games have proven to be quality titles. Also, don't buy the garbage. The titles I have just mentioned are quality titles. I know for sure you are not running out of quality titles for the Wii, that is, if you actually own one. The Titles I have mention are Supported by Nintendo as well. 90% garbage? Teh.
Hey stupid. :B Does someone really have to sit you down and tell you that that's your opinion? If you "played" those games and you still think 90% of the Wii's games are garbage, you're a Wii bashing fanboy who will turn a blind eye towards good wii games. As such.
credits go to you sir.
Well that was embarrassing. Guy tries to cover it up like nothing happened to the TV. lol
"I'm not dumb " says patcher ... "my opinion is what will happen " says patcher... "the moon is not pink" says patcher ... "Do i really need to shut up ? " says patcher ...
everything popular always stays on top....FOREVER!
Pffftt... They need to do surveys to these people buying these wii's and see how often they are actually playing it. Most ppl don't turn theirs on for days or weeks at a time..... I know for a fact mine hasn't been on in a few weeks and I am a pretty hardcore gamer.
i rarely touch mine and i got mine on launch day. I bought extraction the other day, a huge mistake... the only time i fire up the wii is when my girlfriend comes over and wants to play tetris. the wii is garbage
I have had mine since launch and minus the Zelda and Mario titles it has been a complete wash for games.
People who still want to play quality games on it. For example, i'm playing Metroid Prime Trilogy right now.
I'm still playing mine. Lostwinds 2 only just came out and Muramasa, A Boy and His Blob, New Super Mario Bros Wii and Dragon Ball are all coming soon(to the UK). All 2D platformers weirdly.:S Also there's stuff like Need for Speed: Nitro and Tales of Symphonia 2 that I might get as well. Plenty of good games to look forward too for me,
Just give up the console manufacturing and become a developer exclusive to Sony, that right there would be EPIC, Nintendo and Sony together, Zelda and Mario with Uncharted 2 graphics, and gets better: XBOX destroyed!
nintendo > sony
Pachter fails at predicting, and at life.
i play my wii every day way more then my xbox360!which i only play a couple times a week!!and i'am a hardcore gamer who has been playing for 21 years!i almost quite gaming until the wii brought back fun into gaming instead of games try to be movies!
Agreed, if I wanted hilarious bad acting and plot I'd watch evil dead.
"they’re selling 20 million this year and we’re talking about what losers they are. That’s just crazy. They’re killing it…" That Pratcher is damn good at stating the obvious.
No amount of system sales changed how crappy and overpriced the hardware it. Not to mention a pathetic lack of good games. Still riding the gimmick train with popular opinion. Nintendo will start to fade again once everyone realizes their Wii's have been collecting dust for years.
if nintendo became a developer exclusive for sony, the xbox360 would be more F*cked than it already is.
