Wii - The Game Console For People Who Don't Actually Like Video Games

The Wii is enjoying brisk sales despite having the fewest number of quality games. The fact that the Wii is enjoying record sales despite having generally bad games has many large game developers thinking one thing - casual games. For those who are not familiar with casual games, they are games marketed to non-gamers that are made very cheaply because developers know that they only need about 5 minutes worth of intriguing gameplay.

$250.00. Nothing much more to say than $250. That's the biggest difference. Software certainly isn't. Online functionality certainly isn't. Fun, well, I guess it is for someone.

It's the way you play the games. People wouldn't buy GC for $250, but people have been buying Wii for a lot more than 250 dollars in online auction sites.

Ok, uhm so this guy wrote the other article too? Wtf I get that the Wii is kinda sucky right now because there are no games, but what is he trying to start? He needs to stfu

I've had a wii for months now and although I don't religiously play right now that's fine. I've been a gamer my whole life but that doesn't mean that I'm not happy if I am not playing for 6 hours a day. Since NES I've never had a system that didn't go through a period of less use. It happens, besides, it's the freakin' summer. Go out and do something else. If you don't like the Wii, then don't play it. I really don't see the point of bashing something just because it's not your cup of tea.
By the way Golden Retriever's Suck!!! There are just no good toys for them. Everyone should buy a Labrador.

They're completely right. Wii owners are waiting for the same experiences they've had on Gamecube, only with worse graphics and tacked on controls.
Oh, and more 3rd party support, only it'll be significantly worse in quality, because sh** sells on Wii, so devs will take advantage of that.

On PS3 and 360, your game needs to be good to sell big and make back what you put in. Wii devs can pop in a few pennies and get back millions for the crap they put on Wii, because the audience of non-gamers buy them. They're not gonna put epic, good or even fun games because sh** sells on Wii. ENJOY being SUCKERED over loyal Ntards!

It's quite obvious GC>Wii. The only good Wii games belong to Gamecube: RE4, ZTP and Super Paper Mario (used to be for GC).

But if it was an ANTI-PS3/360 you would go crazy wouldnt you?

Still not dead...hmm...

Amerz, you mean to convince us that you've played either a GC or a Wii?

Jesus, I wish people would stop criticizing things they've never used and leave the criticism of consoles to people who have actually touched them before.
