want my Wii??? It's been sitting there collecting dust. It's a mod-ed Japanese version that plays any region of DVD and pirated games.... You can get these pirated games at your local C-town....

I hope the Wii tanks eventually.

I hope the PS3 and 360 both outsell that little turd of a machine.

Way to send the industry backwards Nintendo!

A gamecube, with a new controller does not deserve to outsell the big heavies in the industry.

Nintendo has done noting negative to the videogame industry. If anything its proven how successful a video game company can be, encouraging growing businesses. Nintendo picks up Retro, Retro makes great games, Retro gets fame. And have you ever stopped to think that there's a REASON the Wii is outselling the 'big heavies'? Don't talk about what something does or does not deserve; in the industry you GET what you deserve. If you have a quality product but don't advertise it well, then it deserves to fail and it will. If you keep up with popular opinion, establish yourself as a household name and broaden the scope of your marketing then you deserve to sell well... and the Wii has.

the only thing the Wii is showing is that cheap sells.

Thats it.

If MS and Sony go the way of Nintendo with their consoles, I would never buy another console again.

Maybe if you play one then you would understand why it is outselling the bricks?

"If MS and Sony go the way of Nintendo with their consoles, I would never buy another console again."

Sony did. This was their first console that was a powerful console. So I guess all you have is MS.

Cheap sells? Explain the gamecube then.

2.3 - I have played it ... the graphics are outdated and I did not like the motion control. The games on the system are not my cup of tea either.

2.4 - Sony did not. They made games that targeted an older audience. The PS1 was nothing like the N64 in terms of content ... The PS1 blew that console away.

2.5 - The GC was the same price as the xbox and PS2 .. by the time they cut the price, it was WAY too late for that half-assed console.

Wii = Garbage

Sorry, when you said "A gamecube, with a new controller does not deserve to outsell the big heavies in the industry" and "the only thing the Wii is showing is that cheap sells," I assumed you meant hardware.

I have no clue what games you're talking about, or why you think the narrow audiance MS and Sony are currently selling to is larger than...well, Nintendo is selling to everyone on earth.

PS1 had games for everyone 2 gens ago. PS2 had games for everyone 1 gen ago. Wii has games for everyone this gen.

It's always the weakest one, too...but there I go talking about hardware, when you mean software, right?

haters try to spin the news.. nintendo has plenty of wii's.. sony got so desperate that they are counting on the wii shortages to sell systems... how sad is that.?

ShadoWulf3446d ago

But the title spins it like one. If they said Wii STOCK is going down, that would have been fine. For a moment I thought the Wii was losing sales... of course that would probably make big news.

cooke153446d ago

Every positive WIi article is somehow magically spun into a negative article. N4G is rediculous.

M_Prime3446d ago

are there any neg nintendo articles?
