IGN just released hardware specs for the wii... see how they stack up!
A lot of those specs were released several days ago, ala http://www.xbox360leagues.c... and I'm pretty sure they've been on Wikipedia for a while too :)
The Wii seems as if it will be the most immersive of all 3 next-gen systems, and the most user-friendly. I'll admit, while I underestimated it a great deal at first, the features, games, and services have changed my mind. I'll most definitely be getting one of these, but one drawback I think is the several controllers/attachments, that would get annoying having to buy several different controllers, for different people and games. All in all though, I'm thoroughly impressed, this looks to be a very fun and unique experience.
I'm on the fence as far as voting cool or lame, so I won't vote either way. The tech specs are weak as heck, but that is not what Nintendo is going for. My wife and I are actually going to a show here in Columbus, OH on the 27th which is supposed to be a tour sponsored by the Wii, so hopefully I'll get a chance to try out the console, if there aren't too many emo kids in my way. Haha!
you can rotate the Wii-mote on the second page
Wii may not be the most powerful system but with enough 3rd party support has the makings to be a truly next generation console
It's not the size of the hook, Its how you wiggle the worm.
Ok so I have to go out and buy a different remote to play super smash bros. wow I mean wow! They jsut get lazyer. I thought they would have worked the motion sensitve in with it. THINK OF IT THIS WAY The Nintendo Wii is just like a high powered gamecube. You use old gamecube games old gamecube controlers and what mabbe 4 good Wii games and a fun remote and no ONLINE wow this KNOW officaly sounds like a crap console to me P.S. can the specs get eny lower?
If I use the same reflection you do about a "powered gamecube", I can say that XBOX360 is just a powered XBOX, no ? Wait, why I would want to buy a console if it is only a boosted one compared to the old one ? Oh, wait wait wait ... did Microsoft or Sony innovated to get me new sensations on SOME (a lot we can say) games ? Hmm ... I don't think. Yeah, the monsters are prettier ... so why ?
Nintendo could have got better specs for sure, but the console would have been having a cost around $400. But that not what they wanted, what they were planning to build, the customers they wanted to snipe. The Wii is for the whole family. The Xbox and Playstation is for esthetic gamers.
well put man...you sumed it up very nicely. im not such a fan of the remote costs but the system looks alot more interesting to me then the PS3 and 360...although im sure all 3 will do well
Thanks, I'm not fluent in english 'cause is not my first language. But yeah, the three will do good things. XBOX seem to have a step further than the others on the online specs while Nintendo is more on the diversity. I don't know much about the PS3 but PS2 told us that Sony have pretty good 3rd party devellopers. But we will have to wait for the BLURAY thingies. Some sources (I don't recall) say that Xbox will offer a HD-DVD addon and will but a software patch to get up to 1080p of resolution supported.
17-19 november will be fun to watch :
1. I will have my Wii, hehe
2. We will see how Sony planning to get a hold of one of the pie pieces.
