Wii: Here To Stay?

Despite a lack of horsepower the Wii is taking charge this generation! But how long will it last?

The Nintendo Wii has come under a lot of fire in the past few days from different analyst and news organizations predicting that the console doesn't have any staying power and some going as far to say that the Wii will begin to fade by the end of this year. The first reason some believe the Wii will fail is the system is the weakest of all the consoles and that as time goes on this difference will become even more obvious.

The second reason is that eventually the novelty of the Wii remote will wear off, or not be used properly by third parties at all and end up hurting the system. Finally some believe that if indeed the Wii is successful it could destroy the industry since third party software can not compete with Nintendo's first party titles. As the Wii quickly approaches the install base of the Xbox 360 (only 2 million more to go) the Wii is showing no signs of slowing down.

Are there really no wii fans on this site?

Sorry, I was too busy playing Mortal Kombat.

I just can't get into it. No matter how people cry about how "fun" it is...it really isn't that "fun" to me.

That being said, I'm waiting for more games for it. For now, nothing that appeals to me as a gamer in need of substance.

Says the guy with playstation buttons as an avatar.

You're upset over my opinion? Shame. Live with it.

It's only coming under fire because it's selling so well.

I don't think its here to stay. The game has really short play time. If you play for too long you get elbow pains and then all that controller movement gets old after a while

ITR3788d ago

Elbow pain?

You need to keep playing and work out your soreness.

You get blisters from playing too much as well..but does that stop folks from playing the PS2? Nope.

If you like to game you'll just keep on playing.

anthonsh3788d ago

you should either

A) Calm down
B) Get that checked out.

but the wii doesn't get much play i even rented Mario Party 8 from gamefly and got it on Saturday and i played for a few hours and haven't touched it since. I honestly don't think its gonna be a big thing for to much longer. I know several people that own one and have seen many articles where people that actually own it are bored with it. Once that gets out it will slow down. I'm actually on the fence on trading my wii and 360 in for the 360 Elite............

This is the "boring" time of year. Go get some sun, there are like 25 great games due out in the fall.

ITR3788d ago

It's very boring this time of the yr.

Time to hit the beach.

drtysouf213788d ago

Thats true. Fall needs to hurry up though! Summer is to hot and Transformers is really the only summer movie i really want to see.
