Games which are not made by Nintendo on Wii.

Also lets compare the game selection against X360 and PS3.

Also lets see if Wii fits with HDTV.

i think u just killed the whole article and his so called analysis

Well, I personally don't think Wii is worth $250. It's too expensive compared to the games and value that it offers to me.

napplegate3479d ago

that's the same reason that i haven't purchased a wii yet. even a $50 price cut might be enough to entice me into purchasing one though.

I will pick up a Wii when it's cheaper.

CRIMS0N_W0LF3479d ago (Edited 3479d ago )

I'll buy the Wii when its 200 Euro. Also I will get it with Wii-Key Chip. I just buy one to have one when people come around and I do NOT want to spend much money on its games when I will only play them when people come around and it has very low online capabilities.

i tried to Wii for 2 months, no thx.

Edit: napplegate there were only 2 games playable to me, Metroid and Trauma Center, but those two weren't that great also... I'm the exact opposite of casual gamer, so maybe therefor wasn't the Wii the weapon of choice to me. It's only a gimmick with 90% mostly mediocre games for the casual people, that don't even read game reviews and are buying just any games. And i'm not a Nintendo hater, i found the SNES had probably the best games, also played N64 a lot...

what didn't you like about it?

Napplegate:

probably the things he mentioned about it being gimmicky with mediocre games outside of Nintendo ones.

Also, if I were a betting man, I would bet he's disappointed with the Wii's supbar entertainment and graphical capabilities. Will I ever buy a Wii? It would have to be 150 for me to consider it outside of purchasing it for resale.

Just my two cents, I have played the Wii extensively (Wii Sports, WarioWare, some Metroid). I have watched my friend struggle extensively through Metroid and Zelda, and he said both would have been more enjoyable with a traditional controller. I don't know, I just don't like it, it's not me. I'm not bashing it, everything is more or less a taste issue. I love being wowed by graphics such as Mass Effect and Uncharted that coincide with great gameplay...

I digress. But anyhow, that's my guess as to his reasoning.
