Wii Leading Market as 2nd System a Good Problem to Have

Id Software's John Carmack has laughed off suggestions that Nintendo will care about being a lot of gamers' 'second system' after a PS3 or Xbox 360.

No one can deny the success of the Wii or the impact it has had on the gaming industry. But I honestly can't put it in the same category as the PS3 or the Xbox 360. It's like pitting a Toyota Corolla against an SUV and a truck. It just does not belong in the what we know as the console war.

The Wii is like what Jack Tretton said it is the gateway drug into gaming. It introduces many new gamers and they eventually will buy into the PS2, PSP, PS3, or 360.
