Nintendo brags about sales and Wii's fast growing library

Nintendo's Wii was the best-selling game system in July according to NPD Group figures, helping the company achieve its highest weekly sales figures since December. Nintendo is rightfully proud of the DS, too, with its library of more than 300 titles, including the top-selling title Pokemon Diamond. The company is also touting the Wii's library, saying that it's averaged nine new games each month since launch, which is a faster rate than any of its competitors.

Getting Big Headed are we?

But the truth of the matter is that 99.9% of their titles, SUCK ASS!!!

I own a Wii, but their library isn't anything to brag about.

That is pretty much why I had to post this story. All the non-gamers or as Nintendo calls them "Casual Gamers" are the only ones buying this hype. I have a Wii and Wii Sports kicked ass and Zelda was an Amazing experience. However after that it has been let down after let down. All my money is still poured into my 360 and not my Wii.

In a nutshell though, Putting out a lot of crappy games with gimmicky controls is not Nintendo's fault but most of the 3rd party dev's trying to cash in on the Wii's soaring success. Good games are coming, But how long do I have to wait??

"The company is also touting the Wii’s library, saying that it’s averaged nine new games each month since launch, which is a faster rate than any of its competitors."

But what is the quality of those games? quality > quantity

After reading your post I was reminded that something along the lines of "quality over quantity" was Nintendo's big slogan for the N64, if I am not mistaken.

i bought my first HDTV in 1999, yes people HDTV is THAT OLD. if you dont have one yet, you are WAY behind as i had my PS1 hocked up to the HDTV (not in HD of course).
anyway, after nearly a decade i can say, it's no longer impressive... i dont even see the "shock" when changing from a standard to HD program..

I think nintendo knew this and banked on it, 99% of modern HDTV will upconvert the video to 1080p (or 720p if you have an old one). wii games at 480p upconverted to 1080p look great...

Most parents i know who do not understand games ask me about the PS3, Wii, and 360 for their kids. they are turned off by the PS3 and 360 because "i dont see the point if i dont own a HDTV". its not that they cannot afford the system, they just dont have an HDTV for the "kids".

idk.... but i own all 3 systems and like them all (360 least) but i have ALWAYS been a nintendo fan and its nice to see them on top (for now, we'll see what happens)

Soul Caliber on 720 p was soo wicked.

Unfortunatly that was the only real game that looked that sharp for a console that is.
