Helium: The unique control system of the Nintendo Wii does not make it a 'niche' gaming system. In fact, it does the opposite, shattering the existing 'niche' of video games and cracking the hobby wide open to everybody.
Uh no. It makes the other gaming systems niche. Hello, 70m+ compared to 35m and 40m lol.
Not only that, just look at the software. The games that get the most love on the PS3 and 360 are usually shooters, and FPS was PC-centric pre-Halo. Nintendo, by contrast, has had a lot of success with more "traditional" console games -- 2D stuff, platformers, etc.
And people don't understand that "motion control gaming", is a good thing!
.... I like Call of Duty. CoD is only good on Wii tried it on my PS3 and was a HUGE turnoff. Why use analogs when u can just aim the gun urself unless u got no confidence in aiming (meaning you $UX).
