The massive success of the Wii says "yes."

Nate-Dog2521d ago

A lot of the success (and sales) of the Wii was down to people interested in casual gaming and therefore attracted a lot of people that weren't into gaming before, so technically that wouldn't be gamers wanting new experiences but people that hadn't experience in gaming who wanted to step into the media form. Not saying I totally disagree or that you're wrong but I don't think a massive chunk of the Wii sales are down to core gamers looking for something different.

I'd chalk a lot of the Wii's success up to the large amount of Nintendo fans and the fact (more importantly) that it was the cheapest of the three consoles. Price is always the trump card. The majority of Americans don't have a ton of disposable income and a lot of parents chose the Wii for their kids due to its price. Had the PS3 or 360 been the cheap console like the Wii was, I'd say they would have enjoyed the number one sales position. Of course, the novelty of the Wiimote helped it out tremendously too.

As far as gamers wanting new experiences or not, I'd say "yes", absolute "yes". Games like Portal 2, Heavy Rain, Journey, Flower, Limbo, The Last Guardian are always welcomed by me. I get tired of FPS games all the time and need games like those to vary it up a bit.

Need I remind you that, far more so than the Wii, the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 consoles have been defined, more or less, by their first-person shooters? FPS games are about as casual as you can get before you start seeing digital versions of card and board games.

The plural of "gamer" does not require an apostrophe. Step your punctuation up, please.

This question is actually asking: if the "really", that belongs to or is owned by the gamer, wants new experiences!

Does the gamer's controller perform well?

New experience is a tad general. How about a good gripping story in a game with no bugs and decent graphics.

Thats would be nice.

Yeah, we want new experiences like new games or technology. Though as long as it doesn't interfere with what already exist,I'm fine with new experiences.
