Some footage of people playing Wii, looks like fun.
Ok.. what am I missing. I need a Nintendo fanboy or two explain to me, why this looks like fun? Its close to painful watching them try to control each game. I still dont get the hype for this system.
I'm into consoles period. But nintendo was my first one, and the hype is the way nintendo always shape the gaming industry with a new way to play or a new gaming style. So just to actually act out what you doing, is something we always wanted to do. Well as far as me, now like EA sports you in the game....
not being a huge gamer this does look kinda interesting...i mean being drunk and playing some of those things looks like it would be a sweet time hahaha...not to mention getting a drunk lady friend to play the hoola hoop game...good times for all.
Japs playing golf and doing good thats a first this could shape up people, like teaching black people to swim mabby!!! :) hahahahahahaha Hey and you can jack off while playing have these games and win wow I will poon :)
That don't look fun at all.
From the looks of it seems like only the strongest can play the wii all the way through the end of the game and this is ironic beacause Wii is going after the untouched market like old granmas and granpas and young ladies tired from the night before.
IMPORTANTLY why do the gamers need someone telling them how to control that remote and are they included in the package?
kingofps3, i'm pretty sure when you first got your hands a Dual Shock controller or a ps1 controller you had to read the manual or play a tutorial or even play for a bit to understand how the buttons work. So your point is rather irrelevant. Wiimote is brand new. So people need explanation how it works. O.o.
Look even peter moore admitted that nintendo was going to be 2nd at best. because he understands that the gimmic and hype behind this console isn't going to carry through for more than a couple years.
The wii remote isn't long term practical. Sure a party gag, an occasional flick of the wrist, but NOT a SOLID CONSOLE. Which is what people invest a few hundred bucks for. Now if the wii were 100 bucks, I'd say it'd sell because you get good value.
With 360 cores and premiums already being priced over 50 bucks cheaper than retail it's hard to see the wii being as competitive as we were told.
Hasn't Nintendo stressed times over that Nintendo isn't in the next gen race? They know people will buy it and that's all. They're not selling graphics. They're selling the idea.
And you're right. It’s going to die out in a couple years. 360 has been dead for a while now. It's got decent games coming out for it now. So, yeh. People will get a console they want to play. The only problem is that MS and Sony fight for gamers to get their console. Nintendo is watching from the sideline. Nintendo is the refreshment booth at a long race. Eventually people are going to try it.
The gimmick is here. Every console has a gimmick. And people love gimmicks. Nintendo, with its fan base, will do strong enough, as will MS with its fanbase and as will Sony.
And the wii will fail. Maybe in japan the gamers are skinny and active, but in North America? Wii will sell as fast as that work out video with an ugly hairy woman and incredibly fat men.
Look it's a little more serious than the Wii being a gimmic machine or a couple year console.
If nintendo can't sell above and well beyond the gamecube they said they would stop making consoles. That's very crucial, and by the looks of it I'm thinking their gonna break even.
nintendo said that cozz they aint afraid....they know this is gonna sell even if it dead before you can say dekatkrabtdekrullenvandetrap. in that time nintendo made allot of profit to sart with the new nintendo.
remember, if you aint buying it...some other kid/dad/mom/nintendo fan/"real gamer" will
this is gonna sell like wonka's choclate. i mean parents know how "cool" braintraining( and such ) is for the DS...now figure it out when it comes to the Wii
I don't see why they should worry. When Wii goes on sale people will buy just like they bought the DS. There is a chance people aren't going to touch it, but that's slim. I mean I had the games teasing me into getting it, and the interface is pretty much what sold me.
People have bought DS for animal crossing.
They have bought DS for brain age academy (i'm trying to figure out why)
They will pretty much buy the wii for brain age/ nintendogs soggy island/ mario/ zelda/ and metroid.
I was going to buy it cause of mario.
Thousands will buy it cause of Zelda. (darn geeks :p)
Metroid will come out in 07. Wii wont sell out till then :p hahaha.
But yeah. Nindy ain't got nuttin to be afraid of. They’re going to make a profit.
This is fun when having some friends over with some beer. Or when grandpa wants to have some digital fun together with the childeren. The child is able to get his/her parents/grandparents into his/her world.
But for the rest, you see that movementsensors are just for a little fun. Not for the intense gaming experience for example a 360 with it's great rumble enabled controller is doing.
A semi-mix of limited movement and no rumble like Sony is therefore doomed to fail. Like the MS sidewinder movement controller also was viewed as nothing more then a gimmick. Face it.
The Wii is fun, just different from next gen gaming. It'll sell but not as the first console for a real gamer. That's why Wii60 is the perfect combination. And get the best of both worlds.
I know I am getting one besides my 360 but not untill the price has come down a bit, because 250 Euro's for just a supercharged Gamecube and pay for the controllers just is a strange thing to invest in right now. If we got one for the price in Japan (170 Euro) I would invest at this very moment. But on 250 Euro (although the sports game included) I'll wait a year or so
if anything i'll get this system only because of 4 words...
SUPER SMASH BROTHERS BRAWL
yes for sure the wii is gonna sell and i think going with the new control setup is innovative always what nintendo strive to be, myself personally i will be buying the wii system my mate has the xbox 360 sure the graphics are nice sure its the size of a video recorder and sure the ps3 gonna be the same, serious hardcore gamers mostly go for pc's anyhows and spending 300 on a videocard for my pc is gonna be the other option i use rather than buying 360 or ps3. but the wii is another direction
I AGREE but we need to buy another controler to play it!!!!!!!!!!!! LAzy Japs cant get the motion controler to work for it its mad [email protected]
but i really dont care...ive got my old GC controllers kickin around from SSBM so its cool...but i'll prolly buy 4 of the new ones too...
Well if you do an actual search online you'll see there are 3 controllers. one is the remote itself which is seen fairly often in this clip, then the nuchucks which is going to be used in the new Zelda game. then there is the traditional one that looks like a gamecubewith a holder for the remote. So the controller is no issue. the price is the best being only 250 when the others are 400 ith no memory space. The game base already is amazing for this console considering that FPS and RPGs are pretty much used for XBox and PS respectively. It has backwards read capabilities. and finally Nintendo does not have any quality problems. the other 2 companies have had a few quality problems. And personally I like to be active when I olay videogames I've played gams from a treadmill for a few years niw and it feels alot better.
