People who pay $300 dollars (you'll have to buy a second wii remote if you wan't two player action) just to play old nintendo games is in my opinion worse than someone who pays $400 - $600 for next-gen.

That said he has a point. The games that are coming out for the Wii definitely don't appeal to the traditional gamer over 19..... you know the ones that have carried gaming on any platform for the last several years. Now Nintendo is hoping to win the non-traditional gamer hearts and minds. This could be a big boost or a flop if Nintendo can't get them to buy.
As for the Traditional gamer PC, PS3, or Xbox 360 (or any combination of the three). This is still a huge market and Wii poses no threat to this (nor does PS3 or Xbox 360 pose any threat to Wii's market)

At least at my University the talk is about PS3 not Wii ( of course Xbox 360 but the buzz has died down and is treated much like a console that has been out awhile and the PC will never die! )

Now, hopefully the 20GB PS3's price will drop to around $400 everywhere else and not just Japan.

Here's to hoping......

i agree, i have been saying all along that the wii is a kiddie console like the game cube was. and i don't think the wii will have as much replay value after the initial purchase because the wii-mote is a gimmick. after most kiddies buy it and play a few games they won't continue to buy very many new games because the gimmick will wear off.

But after reading the interview with Lair sounds like the PS3 motion system can perform many of the same fuctions that the Wii remote can do "without" the gimmick controller...
