Nintendo sells its own software, 3rd parties need not apply. The only reasons to buy Nintendo at this point is more Mario & Zelda - and Im happy to try new things.

Perhaps if Nintendo gets back into the hardware business, i'd be interested, but Gamecube 1.5 with a new controller? No thanks.

Considering Wii software has outsold PS3 software 2 to 1 I'd be careful what you say.


I love people who disagree with facts. The Wii currently has an attach rate of 3.86 (NPD data). The PS3 has an attach rate of 4.01. The Wii has outsold the PS3 by roughly 19.5m to 8.9m.

That means that Wii games have sold about 75 million copies compared to 36 million for the PS3 (over twice as many).

Well seeing how 360's software has outsold both the PS3&WII combined.....not worried. I have to agree with #1 Gamecube all over again with the software. The only reason to have the Wii is for Nintendo's games only.

hating will not help whatever other garbage system you bought cause you can see sweat on character faces.... you havent bought the wii and its still number one so your opinion is not really needed my friend... codemasters need to concentrate on making good games... they must be blind to not see the numbers showing how the wii is crushing the competition.. innovation is where its at

you might want to read and state actual facts instead of rumbling on about nonsense.. guitar hero for wii is a million seller, resident evil sells well, carnival games, mario and sonic at the olympic games and many more.. learn to make sense and state facts next time. hater

The wii has been the biggest Disappointment in gaming history.

To who? Certainly not Nintendo. Not the millions of people who are playing and enjoying the Wii. The Wii is even selling more third party games than the PS3 so developers should be relatively happy.

The only ones that seem unhappy are the fanboys.

Who are you to decide that "real gamers" are ALL disspointed in the Wii? Maybe it's a disappointment to you but you can't speak for everybody.

Nintendo fanboys last gen knew that N was coming to an end. They might have not admitted it but they knew it. Surely when the Wii comes from 3rd to 1st place in the console race that they are NOT disappointed. And I'm sure some of them were "real gamers" too.
