The Wii Is History To Electronic Arts

Kotaku: I wouldn't say that the market for 3rd party Wii games is dead, but rather on life support where Just Dance is possibly the only 3rd party title to sell by the truckloads in the last year or so (and that's saying something). If you're not Nintendo you're pretty much SOL, and even more so in the last year or two, unless you're Sonic the Hedgehog, a party game, an exercise game or something else.

The story is too old to be commented.

another reason why nintendo need to up there game. sure they have a host of first party titles every year but cmon wii owners are missing out on some truly epic games that being said i dunno if you could call yourself a gamer if all you have is a wii

Dont really need a Wii when you can play all its game on a PC in 1080p lol.

I would rather buy a PC for all the PC exclusives, all the superior multiplats, all the WII games + emulation of all older consoles. Other then that i might buy a PS3 for Sony exclusives.

Overall owning a midrange PC makes an execellent Wii Replacement.

Someone give this guy a cookie
/facepalm.

pcz2346d ago

oh no, not the anti-pcz response unit

haha

its not my fault you havent got any games to play

ChickeyCantor2346d ago (Edited 2346d ago )

Actually I own a PS3 as well and a solid PC-gaming unit.

I have plenty of games to play, but you know what?
I have a life too, not everything revolves around games.

Don't be so quick to judge. I don't like your attitude cause you try to gain credit because you said something.
Other than that you bash games due the platform its on.
"Have fun missing out" < -- this seems to fit you well.

Trust me I got plenty of games to play. But I got stuff to do.

''I have plenty of games to play, but you know what? I have a life too, not everything revolves around games.''

I didnt say you didnt have a life. i have a life too, if you are insinuating i dont. this is a games forum you know, hence why everybody is talking about games!

''I don't like your attitude cause you try to gain credit because you said something. ''

ha everything i have ever said regarding games is true. wii finished in 2011 (games wise) = true. not my fault, dont shoot the messenger. we'l see anyway. come the end of the year we the industry will be looking back on the worst year ever for the wii. basically, putting the wii to bed. funny how i was saying this all year and now all the 'top people' are saying it... its because its true!

''you bash games due the platform its on. ''

no i dont. if i have bashed a wii game it deserved it. and if i was so into bashing the wii as you say, i wouldnt own one.. and also think its great. im just not going to give it praise at a time when it totally sucks.

"Have fun missing out''

that not me at all,i have bought games i have slated just to give them the benefit of the doubt. i slated mario galaxy 2 but still bought it and yes, it was good, but just as i thought. i slater new super mario bros wii and bought it, and regret that.

i dont think you ever criticise a game, or say anything negative about anything gaming related. probably because you are out for bubbles lol you just jump on other peoples opinions and criticise what they say.

''I got stuff to do.''

havent we all, but again, this is a gaming forum so we are obviously talking about the games we are playing or not playing. if i wasn't playing videogames i obviously wouldnt be here.

" if i have bashed a wii game it deserved it"

Coming from someone who hasn't played certain games yet, and still bashes them. Next to that, you force your opinion as FACT. While in fact you havn't even tried these games you bash before hand.

" dont think you ever criticise a game, or say anything negative about anything gaming related. probably because you are out for bubbles lol you just jump on other peoples opinions and criticise what they say. "

With the amount going on here?
Why add more to the pile of shit?
I simply reply to an opinion, because i share my view.
If you are telling me to shut up, i suggest you do the same. Else you will be bleeding with hypocrisy.

" if you are insinuating"
Actually you are insinuating i only have one console.
That I do not have any games to play.
I do not need to talk about every aspect of games, I have better things to do. I do not need to share every detail on what I do with games.
Thats what im implying here.

"wii finished in 2011 (games wise) = true"
Again you are being arrogant to put your view as fact.
There are people who are waiting for certain wii games, just because you don't agree with it, doesn't make your view absolute.
