Matt Waldron of Cinemablend.com writes, "One year after the Wii's release, it can easily be described as an unquestionable success, selling at an astronomical rate that has outpaced both the 360 and the PS3. But now that a year has passed, looking back on the Wii, we might ask if it is really turning out to be all that its customers had hoped for? Despite promises to revolutionize the way people play games, now, one year later, the Wii is looking poised as ever to follow the same tired and typical Nintendo model. Succeeding largely on a series of one-shot first party "mascot games" whose IPs largely remain unchanged since the days of the NES. Ironically enough, perhaps it is the Wii's innovation that is ultimately to blame for its stagnation."
