Why Microsoft and Sony Should Be Scared of the Wii

At this year's E3, Microsoft and Sony will be taking the stage to discuss the future of their consoles. After that, Nintendo will gloat about its success and take the opportunity to tell the world that its Wii is second to none.

Of course, during all those press conferences, Nintendo will be the only company to even mention its competitors. Microsoft and Sony, on the other hand, will only talk about the other and make it abundantly clear to everyone that Nintendo isn't being considered a real competitor to either firm.

And just in case you don't believe me, Sony CEO Howard Stringer at a conference last week said that he doesn't even think the Wii is on the same level as his company's console.

Because Nintendo is the one holding back true next gen advancement and immersion for the gamer in terms of visuals and what is able to be done and interacted with within the game.

Have fun covering your eyes while Nintendo wins at e3. Your fanboy behavior is clearly biased, so you are pretending that Nintendo isn't selling so many consoles, the manufacturer can barely catch up. This is still happening after Nintendo doubled production in 2007

The Wii is selling with practically zero 3rd party support. If they can get the major 3rd party studios like Activision, Ubisoft, EA, Capcom or Square Enix to develop serious titles on it then the Wii will become this generations PS2 leaving the competition in the dust. Thats a BIG if though.

Well, the Wii isn't on the same level, so what's your point?

WTF do they mean "Why MS should be scare of Wii"?
They're already scared to death. Just look at their confrence. Fallout 3, Fable 2 and even RE5's demo footages were really short and forced so the casual stuff could get all the attention and time. A full song for Lips, lots of stuff for GH and RB and finally, the freaking AVATARs! If that's not a rip-off of Mii, I don't know what it is.
Still, pretty solid confrence with some great games like Fallout 3, Fable 2 and Banjoo 3.

Who ever complains that SONY are copying MS should take a look at what MS are doing. They copied SingStar, BuZZ!, and EyeToy, and also the Nintendo Mii's. 'They showed it all off in their E308 presentation.
