THQ Boss Says Wii Hasn't Won Just Yet

Speaking earlier today at the - where else - Morgan Stanley Technology Conference, THQ boss Brian Farrell has said that while the Wii's been going gangbusters so far during this console generation, it doesn't have things sewn up just yet...

lol duh PS3 is going to be out 8.5 more years and has barely begun. Everyone is waiting on the PS3 to win. It's going to in the long run.

Well considering that the Wii sucks when it comes to 3rd party games...and because THQ is a 3rd publishers and there games tends to bomb sales wise on the Wii....he felt the need to say that...

hey it's the Gamecube all over again...

Wii is like a barbie for casual/old/retarded/dead/injur ed/ people to pass their time. NO serious gamer could seriously look at their big screen tv without cringing at the eye sore of graphic. Let me see how many hours on can u play COD4 or your fav game in one sitting? And how long can u stand and swing ur arms around playing the pathetic excuse for games on wii?

So I guess that this seventh generation of video game consoles is your first seeing as how you would have died from playing games from previous generations. The graphics on the N64 apparently would've stolen the life right out of you. For those of us who are fans of GAMES and have played them without discrimination over the past decade have learned to focus less on the shovelware games and notice the potential that Metroid and Galaxy have shown us that the Wii has. No, the Wii's graphics are nothing compared to the 360 or PS3, but they surely won't give you eye sores.

And as for your reference to retarded/dead people, I think it's time you've grown up. It's not funny.

im surprised to hear something like that, they are already realizing that the only games that sell on the wii are party games and wii fit. Core gamers who have the wii buy the first party titles such as metroid, SSBB, and Mario Galaxy.

without slowing down then yeah I'd say this generation is done. Wii, ps3 then 360. But until they do its an open race for first place between Wii and PS3.

Ben 10 Omniverse - God of War for Kids

Ben 10 Omniverse wasn't the first Ben 10 videogame, but it was a landmark title for actually making a decent game of a children's license.


Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two - Wonderful Co-Op Hamstrung by Aging Tech

Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two is one of the greatest co-op platformers ever made, and can still be played on modern consoles & PCs.


F-Zero 99 is Peak Nintendo, But Not the F-Zero We Wanted

F-Zero 99 is a fantastic new way to play the franchise, but it falls far short of a new game built for modern hardware.

I would have loved a F-Zero GX remake, not remaster, or a brand new F-Zero game.😞

The problems with that are it'd probably weigh in at a full price game and it wouldn't include the AX tracks that are weirdly in the GameCube version but can't be accessed.

PRIMORDUS6d ago (Edited 6d ago )

Actually I thihk you can get the AX tracks but it's really hard to do it. https://www.reddit.com/r/Ga...
But I think you might still need to find the arcade of AX, that would be nearly impossible today. There is hope, there is a rom hack for the GC rom that has all the AX tracks in there. 😁 Just search for: F-Zero AX Direct Boot

This. Why Nintendo won’t fan service us with this and give Wave Race the same treatment is beyond me. Switch 2 launch games would sell them out of consoles, but we’ll prolly just get another Mario because they figure that’s enough. Sadly, they are correct.

If you want more F-Zero, make sure to give this one some love then.

Was Tetris 99 a new game built for modern hardware? What about Mario 99?

Does this person not know that Fzero 99 is built on the SNES title? Were they actually expecting a brand new Fzero game? hahahahaha
Also, what's with all of the spammy ass tags?
