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.
