im guessing sales are down because of the economy

i mean if it was because of gimicky motion controls then the wii just wouldn't have even sold at all

The economy is hurting everyone, we all know that. But my question is, are people getting over that initial "newness" of the Wii's motion controls? It was awesome at first yea, but how long will it last before gamers move on? I'm afraid it's already happening.

Ah man, gotta love the title, dripping with fanboyism.

Oh well. Funny thing is the Wii is still outselling both competitors, usually combined, but Wii is the sytsem in trouble.
