"swear everybody I know who owns a wii they barely ever turn it on. "

Well if everybody u know "barely turns it on" then that must be true ...i mean its gotta be, As if anyone would play it>>>? right. NOt eevrybody plays it for 5min and never plays it again, or only buys it for wii sports or wii fit. Just like ppl that bought the ps2, not all of them bought it for singstar, buzz! and other crap like it (altho alot did ;-) ...but not everybody i know ;-)

"RE has always been good and after the greatness of RE4 its popularity only grew. Like 'em or not the controls are not bad at all, the game is a blast to play= FUN."

You're right, re5 is a great game, i have it. Even tho i think the contols are a step back from the wii remote, i think its an awesome game and im getting used to the controls the more i play it. (it was weird at first, but it grows on u pretty quick, ppl just gotta give it a chance)

Yeah what I said was just in reference to my personal experience, I wasn't trying to imply that its true for all wii owners, however I do believe this is happening much more with the wii compared to 360 and ps3. Its clear to me based on the things I read, also my personal experience from family and friends who own the wii and the many conversations I've had with local game retailers that a huge demographic of the wii's install base are not your traditional type gamer, many like the idea of the wii with the controls but imo they are just not really into gaming aside for a bit of casual play here and there and of course some fun with the wii with a few friends. Nothing wrong with that at all and maybe somehow my experience is isolated but I don't think so. Either way I'm not trying to insult the wii at all, just pointing out what I've noticed.

no surprise there,i spoke to the lads at the local game station store,the wi is the biggest traded in console ever,but people still go in and buy new.the advertising for the wi is 20 to 30 times the budget of ps3 and 360 its relentless here in the uk.its impossible to watch any channel for more than one hour without an advert and this is prime time must be costing a fortune they have got top football managers and family to pop stars sponsoring the thing.360 just lost 2 sections of there wall space to the wi at my local game store this is happening nation wide.if it keeps on growing were be all waggling a wilmote,thats a bad thought

Oops, my mistake. It is COD4. Interesting to see it went so high up in the charts after so long.
