There's like 2 games you can play online with the Wii... and even then it's online service is geared towards consumers purchasing those classic games, not competing with others. Yet im sure that'll change once Smash Bros. & Mario Kart comes out.

While it's painstakingly obvious that Nintendo has taken the gaming industry by storm, what hasn't been noticed is that there will come a time where Wii owners will need another source of true and fresh innovation.

PLAYSTATION 3® is the source that gamers will be looking towards to receive a true, next generation update into where video games will be taken beyond the thoughts Wii owners never thought were imaginable.

PLAYSTATION 3®, Now you're really playing with power.
