With Kinect and Move released, is there still a need for Nintendo's little system that could?
If its still making sales, clearly there are "some" people who still want one.
it is still doing great look last week http://vgchartz.com/
hate to do this cause everyone else does but yea your source might as well be a blog. Does not prove your point.
Two words, Epic Mickey. My most anticipated game this year even though early reviews have been so so(hoping its like GT5, bad reviews for a great game).
Its not finished but its slowing down in a big way
people are still buying the wii
In your dreams.
As long as it has games coming out, it will never be finished.
Ah, disagrees but not a single reply. Typical of the N4G community.
Yeah I just got Donkey Kong Country Returns and GoldenEye which are exclusives. I think the sales have tailed down a bit but its still selling and there still are some nice exclusives coming out next year for the Wii like Legend of Zelda and Last Story.
Yeah, but the nintendo fans have already had their games. 2 major mario titles, 1 zelda game, 1 major metroid release, brawl, mario kart, etc. All that means is that the quality games for the system are drying up. I'm actually surprised that 2 major zelda game releases will make it in this nintendo generation, but I guess that's a bonus for the Wii owners. So to sum it up, yeah, after that zelda game I believe it's over (and it might have been over for a while). Unless the Wii lasts until ANOTHER mario game comes out (which without any new innovation will just be another galaxy clone), I think the people are just waiting for the next Nintendo system.
lol im guessing no one has realized that nintendo had the most exclusives this month and all hits btw
"I'm actually surprised that 2 major zelda game releases will make it in this nintendo generation" bitch please, gamecube had wind waker and twilight princess n64 had ocarina of time and majoras mask i could name others but you get the point most gens had 2 zeldas
far from over for the wii nintendo did very well in first coule of years they are in a nice spot now even though sales are on decline it dosnt matter they are already at 75 million+ they can cruise to finish line and be happy with whateva the outsome
but the wii always had some of the best 1st party development in the industry. is it done?...yeah it's done, dumping massive amounts of pownage sauce on the competitors (from a console sales standpoint). 75+ million wii's sold, there targeted market is saturated.this is to be expected. the wii is still selling and by the way the ps3 and 360 are selling (they're both doing some good numbers)the wii would have to drop out this console race and discontinue shipping wiis, for any of them to catchup. i know that the wii's isn't in direct competition with ps3 or 360 (because they target different audience)but from a pure console sell standpoint, there is no catching up, the gap is to big. only a delusional fanboy (i'm a sony fanboy who has a 360 and can face facts)would say different.
"(i'm a sony fanboy who has a 360 and can face facts)would say different." you aren't a fanboy if you can face facts
indeed. only the delusional wud say the wii is finished.
did it ever get started?
wii is not finished got donkey kong country returns and i can tell you this game is amazing haven't had this much fun in a long time reminds me of the old days if u have not got the game go out and get it and the wii has so many other great games that are good to
I think it'd be in their best interest to already have their Next Gen on the line and ready. I can't see how they'd keep it quiet.. but it would be slick if they were to release next year. Wii 2. "with hardware WAY better than PS3 and Xbox" It'd be slick. Unlikely though.
It's not dead yet but hopefully it will be soon.
Just cause the Wii isn't a powerful enough console to really showcase Nintendo's true potential as developers. Not just the games but the online interface and everything; it's so outdated.
the games speak for itself. other than the online everything else i disagree with.
We have to wait for Pachter's input first. NOTHING IS CONFIRMED UNTIL PACHTER SPEAKS! NOTHING!!! /s
If the Wii is finished then the other consoles are dead and buried. Funny how a console that is finished still sells far more than the others per week and has also made money per unit sold from day 1. Even if the other sold twice as many by the end of the generation Nintendo still will have made them so much more money that they have license to do whatever the hell they want. Whereas I doubt the others will release another console for at least 3 more years because they are still trying to make their money back. Nintendo have earned their success. The Gamecube was the most powerful of the 3 last gen and it sold next to nothing. Gamers made their decision about the direction they wanted the industry to head in. Funny how gamers now insult the Wii for it's shovelware when last gen the PS2 was shovelware central. Just goes to shoe the fickle nature of fanboys I guess, last gen sales meant more than anything, now when the PS3 sells less games/units, they are all about the graphics, which they didn't have last gen. Flip-flop-flip-flop. Speaking of flops hows GT5? rofl.
first off, the gamecube didn't fail because it was the most powerful of the 3 consoles last gen, it fail because the n64 had lost all most all 3rd party and 2nd party support for the console because devs had enough of nintendo's bs and people got tired of waiting 3yrs for a couple of exclusives when the ps1 had so many great games (this is when i made my jump to sony). the n64 sold alot of consoles but software sells where laughable all but nintendo's first party games.then comes the gamecube it started out great with starwars RS, but after that it was all down hill for them on 3party support and the ps2 was getting it all.even nintendos 1party games took a dip in sells this time including mario sunshine.gamers where all but done with the nintendo consoles (not including the gb). so comes the wii because nintendo knew they couldn't market a gamecube 2.5 with motion controls to the core and with 3party support none existent for the console it would have been worse this time around (nintendo made it very clear, they weren't in competition with sony, they were going after a different market altogether) .so they droped there existing fanbase for a totally new one (your moms). and gt5 a flop i bet you 3million units in 2 dayz it ain't.
I'm waiting for it to drop in price again before I buy one. Next year if I can find one < 150 then I'll probably buy it.
I just bought a camera for 150. The Wii is cheap enough.
Kinect and move actually came much later to the party. And besides that Twilight Princess, Mario galaxy 1 and 2, Metroids, DK returns and SB brawl are all great games that only Nintendo can offer. And with skyward sword and pikmin 3 coming up the wii still has a little to give.
the last story (which is what final fantasy shud have been) and The Conduit 2
Finished? Zelda SS,Last Story,Dragon Quest X.... I think not finished.
games wii know to come: Rhythm Heaven wii, De blob 2, fatal frame 5, zelda, last story, xenoblade, conduit 2, grinder, pikmin 3, driver:san francisco, ... and how about games that Nintendo are keeping in secret for wii? I think wii will show us good games in future... :) I like my console and don't need WiiHD.. Wii FTW!!! :) trolls won't understand this..
It really makes me laugh when people talk about the wii being finished because of move and kinect... since those peripherals have been released they have made zero impact on gaming. No games on move or kinect are pushing the boundaries of what was already set by the wii... only cosmetic changes. People need to stop kidding themselves, move and kinect are only on the market to try to steal some of the wiis thunder, they aren't pushing motion gaming further... where are move and kinects classic games? what also makes me fall off my chair with laughter is that people say motion gaming is finished and it is evident by the decline of wii sales... so why did sony and microsoft release motion tech to a dead market then? move and kinect are too late, the motion contol party has been going on for years but ps3 and 360 users were too proud to get involved, instead they kept their ear to the door listening to all the fun we were having and secretly wishing they had the same. They dissed wii users saying it was a fad and it looked silly waving our arms... and what do they do? go crazy with excitement when move and kinect are released. The wii dead? no, the move and kinect propaganda has just begun.
dragon quest X=not finished
I think there is no better time to buy a wii! I got mine last week. Seriously the amount of good games are unbelievable. My most anticipated game is not Zelda, not Last Story, not Dragon Quest X....ITS XENOBLADE which must be translated at some point! Have a look at Xenoblade...I believe it is the best jrpg in the past 10 years....and its a nintendo exclusive...nintendo knows how to please a target group!
well then dont worry if it doesnt come to the us, we can always call up them hackers. if i recall they shud be able to do translation patches for wii games. here is an example: http://www.fatalframe4.net/ only possible thanks to homebrew
you dont even need a wii to play any of nintendo games lol. The nintendo hardware is so out of date and weak that they have emulators on computers that can run gamecube and wii games. add that with the emulators that emulate every console or handheld that nintendo ever made and you got nintendo is finished as far as me paying for anything from them ever. I hope they keep it up with the weak hardware and such. A ok pc can run the entire history of nintendo all in one place and you can hook the pc up to the television for pure authentic gaming.
First part titles. As long as N continue releasing them, it 'll keep on selling.
I sold my wii to get a Ps3 was I wrong I think not but if I were to get another wii it would only be for super smash bros brawl that game was bad ass
Its nowhere close to being finished. The Wii has a huge install base and I doubt the PS3 or 360 will ever hit those kind of numbers. Heck, they barely best it now COMBINED. Its funny. The Wii has dominated for years and now that Wii sales have dropped to ONLY being around what the other two do, its "finished"? The only thing slowing down Nintendo's momentum is Nintendo IMO. Price hasnt dropped much at all since launch (especially compared to Sony),and they never came out with a enhanced HD version. Slashing the price or newer hardware would be bad for Sony/MS. And if anyone is curious, im one of the 12 people left in the world that do not own a Wii ;) My in laws got one a few years ago as a gift, and shes a dust collector. I could always borrow it if I felt the need I guess.
lol fuck no. is its momentum finished in that case fuck yes. now it is selling averagely pretty much like ps3 and 360 since the beginning of this gen. of course the momentum can return to ninty once again, but only if they do a price drop to pwn all other price drops. 149.99 wud do the trick to send wii sales to the 300+k but a 99.99 pricetag... that wud be the sweet spot and wud rape ps360 all over again. ninty still got the games so the wii is certainly not finished it is just a rant of a delusional fanboy.
Closing in on 77 million units sold worldwide, will probably hit 78 mill b4 2011. Will be in the 80+ mill b4 Zelda arrives. After that its down to whatever games Nintendo has up its sleeve. My guess for software that maybe announced for Wii in 2011: WII SPORTS 3 WORLD ONLINE PIKMIN 3 ROGUE SQUADRON 4 MARIO KART WII 2 F ZERO Z SMB WII 2 ETERNAL DARKNESS SANITY'S TOLL featuring the new VITALITY SENSOR WII PAINT with UDRAW BOARD
