This is pathetic, MS really thinks they're running the show. They just come up and say ''our system is better'' then ''haha the Wii can't play DVDs'' Who cares what companies think! Its what WE gamers think!

I think we all know that. It's not Sony, M$ or Nintendo.

gta_cb4889d ago

you say this is "pathetic" well just remember that your calling Sony pathetic aswell then. as if i remember correctly Sony and MS have said pretty bad things about the Nintendo Wii, yet it seems to be doing better in sales then both consoles!

Its no surprize that Microsoft is being so anal However Nintendo has nothing to worry about and most likly just laughed it off because everyone knows by now that the 360 has become the most defective gaming system in history.

The Fact is even the 360 cant play DVDs with its famous 3-red lights, but at least the Wii user can still play games and enjoy there Wii system while the 360 user is calling MS for a coffin and paying $150 twice per year for repairs on a system that cant be

Black Wii w/DVD player.

This guy must be scared of the Wii to keep bashing it.

It takes a genius to figure that one out.

eclipsegryph4889d ago

Seeing as how I am not a genius, can you explain to me how you figured that out? In fact, I am such not a genius that I can't even figure out the many varied interpretations of the term "hardcore", so maybe you could help me out with that one as well.

23478ueyur_9382234888d ago (Edited 4888d ago )

You know, hardcore. Intense. Crushing. Malefic. Extreme.

On another note, the Wii won't have any truly graphically next gen games, and as I said --> it takes an absolute genius to figure that out. Thank God for this guy.

Now, if you were actually being serious, I am appalled at how you could possibly have not drawn that together yourself. Perhaps he did need to spell out the obvious for you.

Hard-core games.. hmm Rambo for commodore 64 was Hard-core game back then. I'm pretty sure Wii can handle that. Ok, seriously.. to me it looks like this guy is trying to prove himself that Wii CAN'T beat xbox360 but he knows it can. Wii can beat both PS3 and 360 in sales, but can it beat the games? That is totally different thing. Wii might be innovative now, but is the controller enough to make people enjoy Wii gaming for long?

ITR4889d ago

I'd say probably for awhile.

I just got back from talking with my old STL and he told me Target Corp. (internal email) that the Wii will keep selling strong all the way into Fall season. He also told me last week they got 31 Wii's and they sold out in two days. Attach rate was 3.5 games for district. (Probably Zelda, Paper Mario, and WiiPlay)

gta_cb4889d ago

i doubt it, not for that much longer surely!

oh and BTW people i know that MS are going to be releasing there next gen console sometime in 2011-2012 and Sony about 2017 but what about Nintendo! i havnt heard ANY news on this topic... maybe someone could share some light
