Couldn't agree more but I can't help but feel this is directed at Sony. Just saying with their homo wiimote knock off coming and singstar pushes and all.

At least we PS3 owners will be getting Little Big Planet and Home.
There is still originality on the Sony side....F*ck all on the M$ side, never was.

I'd say the wii has done more for originality in ages. Still fighting aliens, robots and wars in the other consoles. Not that I don't mind playing them sometimes, but it's nice to have variety in your life.

dude_uk3957d ago

exactly i completely agree with brother nick...
like it or not... the wii has brought out more originality than other consoles have done in ages...

and the industry has been looking at a way to get back at the wii..
