Oh. That Vitality sensor has got me sold.
You know, im usually good at detecting sarcasm, but I can't work out if this article is trying to give genuinely good reasons to buy a wii, or if its sarcasticly showing that there's nothing worth buying one for Seriously, their first reason is a wiiware game where you play as a slab of meat. I'll counter that title with Gran Turismo 5. No, I am not going to buy a wii for that game. Also in that list is the vitality sensor. Thats when I couldn't tell if they were being sarcastic. No, I am not going to buy a wii for a vitality sensor. I have a ps3. Wii is just the WORST games console since the Sega Saturn
DON'T GO ANYWHERE NEAR IT. i haven't turned mine on for almost 5 months! even my my niece got bored of it.
eh, still don't want one
5)Monster Hunter Tri 4)tatsunoko vs Capcom 3)Mario galaxy 2 2)Metroid Other M 1)Zelda Wii DONE If that doesn't even make you consider buying a Wii, then your crazy!
'Zelda Wii', no way a new one is coming out in 2010
"In January 2010, Nintendo Executive Satoru Iwata stated that the game would be coming out some time in 2010"
tunaks1 has the reasons covered. Exclusives galore.
5. Don't care 4. Don't care 3. Don't care 2. Do want 1. Maybe want
Well at least we can agree on Metroid Other M Band1t. Just not everything else. (He doesn't want Mario Galaxy 2? He must be crazy!?)
5 Don't Want 4)Want 3)Want 2)Don't Want 1)Want
I liked the Wii better when it was called the Gamecube and didn't have controls so bad you have to buy an add-on for it.
"I liked the Wii better when it was called the Gamecube and didn't have controls so bad you have to buy an add-on for it." Well I liked discussing video games with my fellow gamers until retards who started playing on the PS1 called them selves HARDCOREZ!!!! and trolled. Go back under the bridge.
I don't know why you're criticizing me. From your list, you obviously like "hardcore" games. Wii is a Gamecube at 5 times the price with a controller that isn't precise. That's why 3rd parties are running away from the system with real games and are instead going to make casual games. Wii's top games are Wii Sports, Wii Play, and Wii Fit. What a great list :|
Do you know how powerful the Wii is compared to the gamecube? I'm guessing you don't. If you did, you wouldn't have posted something so ignorant and misinformed. But I guess it's ok to copy the fanboy posts on this site, than use them as your own. But don't worry, you're not alone. 90% of the Sony & MS fanboys (who somehow find their way to the Wii section) do the same in this section. 7_7
Not many can get all consoles. At some point you have to consider all libraries to make the final decision, and 3rd parties are starting to port everything to HD consoles from Wii. Wii has yet to get any of the amazing IPs that have graced HD consoles and PC. Considering that 360 online costs and that all its exclusives are on PC (which everyone has) and PS3, there is no reason to get a 360 if you are rational. And now that the novelty is wearing off for the Wii, there are hardly good reasons to get a Wii if you don't like their first party efforts. With PS3 you get most games available on the market, tons of high quality exclusive content, free online play that doesn't suck like it does on Wii, and the best HD multimedia center and blu-ray player, nobody can go wrong getting a PS3. If you want motion controls, PS3 is getting them too.
Actually you can go wrong with the PS3. As for the 360 and wii, they had something I as a gamer needed. GAMEPLAY. Playing games on games on the PS3 that I can't play on the 360 & wii, felt like a experience at the movies. Yes PS3 games got good graphics, stories, character development and voice acting. But it's games gameplay is kinda boring IMO (I fell asleep almost every time I played MGS4), and as a gamer gameplay shouldn't be boring. Gameplay, that's all I ( I ) care about in gaming. So not everyone can go right with the ps3.
From the games posted: 5) Don't want 4) Don't want 3) Don't want 2) Maybe want 1) Want Oh well not buying a Wii for 3-4 games in total that interest me. Dolphin works great for that :D Also the Wii is not much different than the gamecube, infact will controls were originally designed as a gamecube add-on. Also @above, PS3 doesn't only have 1 exclusive, get over it.
To what proof (must be confirmed by Nintendo tthemselves) can you give that it was planed to be an 'gamecube add-on'? I only used one game as an example, I can give more if you like. By the way, keep in mind that it's only my opinion.
My reasons are simillar to tunaks1s: 1)Zelda Wii 2)Monster Hunter tri 3)Metroid Other M 4)Red Steel 2 5)Super Mario Galaxy 2 I really could care less about the other three reasons that they mentioned that were not on my list...
Hehe at Meat Man.
I'll get one if the Vitality sensor came with a rumble pack inside of it. Yea, you know where i'm going with this. ... hot times...
What's a Wii? People still buy these things?
its a system that harnesses shovelware haha no its good system has some pretty good games on there
I already have a Wii, so nothing to worry about here. Gonna be some great games in both 2010 and 2011. Edit: How can anyone disagree with that? Metroid, Zelda, Mario, Monster Hunter Tri, and Pikmin are just a few of the "hardcore" games coming.
The Wii's sells have down an 360 and PS3 are both coming out with their on motion, PS3's motion controller is going to be better for the fact that it is a controller an it uses the PS Eye with it, so it can do what Natal an the Wii remote both do at once. Natal is a great idea but lacks somethings, you need alots of room to play it, an the games that Microsoft thinks are a great idea, seem to be dumb idea's do to the fact of "You are the controller". But both sound an seem alot better then what Wii has so far, I in joy the people that disagree with me and not even say why. Guess they are bored an just clicking on things.
i have a wii, the last game i bought for it was Smash Brothers, maybe ill dust it off finally and play some of these exclusives. Or maybe not.
my wii is in my 360 box ( i bought a 360 4 years ago, got RROD), i will only take it out to play ssbb or mario kart wii with a party of at least 3. but i will buy metroid and a new zelda :)
Reasons one through five for me are Other M. It's the first proper third-person 'Troid to appear on a home console since Super Metroid back in 1994. And Sakamoto-san is at the helm. We've already gotten NMH2 and Tat v. Cap. Toss in Metroid, Galaxy 2, S&P2, MH:Tri, RS2, maybe Zelda...yeah, it's gonna be a good year.
Tales of Graces Tales of Symphonia I don't own a Gamecube so those are reasons enough for me
That's great. There are always reasons to get a system. These aren't good enough though.
Screw the Wii I got one free with my phone contract Sold it within a week What a last gen, gimmicky piece of crap! and if anything its hurting gaming The average Wii player? a 7 year old kid or a 42 year old house wife. Nuff said.
5.Lack of 3rd party support 4.Clear inferiority to its competitors. 3.Too expensive for its outdated hardware specs. 2.Lack of games for a mature auidience. 1.Lack of new video game franchises. Reasons not to get a Wii in 2010. You know,imo.
I had a Wii and I sold it. I'll give you one Reason not to get a Wii, motion controls are come to PS3 & 360.
