"The Xbox 360 is the system of choice for fans of high-action first-person shooter (FPS) games. However, for the 80%-plus of game consumers that DO NOT play FPS games, the Xbox 360 is not the system of choice."

Well, for one, the 360 doesn't mainly have FPS like that link states. Furthermore, more and more FPS titles are coming out for PS3 also.

Also, more than 20% of gamers play FPS.

---> 2009 the "year of PS3"?

I thought that's what you said in 2006, 2007 and 2008?

I saw with my own 2 eyes, the wii become a fad. I was in EB games and i was next to a girl who was holding her new Wii, trying to choose a game. OFcourse she couldn't get Zelda, Metroid or A mario game.. because she said her friends already had THOSE games so she needed something different..cez ya kNow..GoTtA Hv SmFin DiFfErnt Nd bE KeWlZ.

Im sure some people are really keen on their wii's, but i can almost promise that girl aint played it ne more...n im sure thats true with many fact i all my friends who have 1 dont even play it.

haha...OH BTW the game she ended up buying was some dogs game.

(I am not a pedafile)

"The Nintendo Wii, truely ushering a new generation of gaming. The true next-generation experience for any new potential buyer. The real deal games console. But in order to be cool, you have to buy games that your friends don't already have to match your pink purse"

thisisim3760d ago

I think it's ridiculous for anyone to buy a wii and not buy the games I would buy for it. Everyone should think just like me. Stupid dogs games can't possibly be fun for anyone. Therefore by my undisputable calculations:

Wii = Fad.


LastDance3759d ago

Yea see she didnt buy all the other games coz her friends already had THOSE games...whatever game she bought was of no significance.

tojfs79313759d ago

Why wouldn't you want to have a game other friends of yours are playing-- oh wait i know why- cause they dont have any acheivements or trophies on the wii!

Pedobear3760d ago

Because we eventually get sick of something when something better comes out. Wii is no different.
