There's no denying that the Wii has been slipping these past few months. But to say that the system is in a great deal of trouble in the market really is crazy.

It's in trouble... because it's not selling as well. But it's still selling basically more than any other console.

I can imagine what Nintendo are thinking

'UH oh sales have dropped below 400k, we make profit on every console. The DS is still going strong... PANIC TIME!'

very "original"

mikeslemonade3377d ago

The system itself is doing amazing. However the perception of the company of Nintendo is not good. You can no longer rely on Nintendo to make great games anymore. A lot of people who actually buy the games won't buy the next Wii that comes out.

They were doing well, but they sacrifice gamers in order to get casuals, this affect in the long term, let say next gen

-Super Smash Brothers: Brawl
-The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
-Metroid Prime 3
-Metroid Prime Trilogy (Collector's Game)
-Super Mario Galaxy (Currently the Highest Rated Exclucive Game This Generation)
-Fire Emblem: Radiant Daw
-Mario Kart Wii
-Super Paper Mario
-Zelda (Upcoming Wii title (U.W.T.))
-New Super Mario Bros. Wii (U.W.T.)
-Metroid Other M (Team Ninja X Nintendo (U.T.W.)
-Sin and Punishment 2 (U.W.T.)
-Super Mario Galaxy 2 (U.W.T.)

Wow, Look at all of that support from Nintendo to the core gamer. Not to mention if Nintendo truly left the core/hardcore gamer, they would have never licensed titles like The Conduit, MadWorld, Monster Hunter 3, No More Heroes, Muramasa etc.

Now here is a little homework: Compare all of core/hardcore titles you have just seen (which is not even all of them) to the "casual" titles like Wiisports, Fit, Music, etc.

In the end, what do you get? More Support to the "Gamer" than the "casuals".

nintendo has been 90% garbage this generation

ZoidsRaven3376d ago

So I guess you you didn't even bother looking at the Wii games FM listed, huh?

Turning a blind eye towards a list of good wii games? You'll fit in just fine on this site.

hatchimatchi3376d ago

hey genius,

"Super Smash Brothers: Brawl
-The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
-Metroid Prime 3
-Metroid Prime Trilogy (Collector's Game)
-Super Mario Galaxy (Currently the Highest Rated Exclucive Game This Generation)
-Mario Kart Wii
-Super Paper Mario "

i own these games, i didn't buy fire emblem cause i've never played any of the games and i don't like tactic style rpgs and i didn't buy punch out cause it's basically the same game that's on the nes.

the majority of the games on the wii are garbage.

that is a fact

Fierce Musashi3376d ago (Edited 3376d ago )

You mean your opinion. Weather you like them or not, those games have proven to be quality titles. Also, don't buy the garbage. The titles I have just mentioned are quality titles. I know for sure you are not running out of quality titles for the Wii, that is, if you actually own one.

The Titles I have mention are Supported by Nintendo as well. 90% garbage? Teh.

ZoidsRaven3375d ago (Edited 3375d ago )

Hey stupid. :B

Does someone really have to sit you down and tell you that that's your opinion?

If you "played" those games and you still think 90% of the Wii's games are garbage, you're a Wii bashing fanboy who will turn a blind eye towards good wii games.

As such.

everything popular always stays on top....FOREVER!

Pffftt... They need to do surveys to these people buying these wii's and see how often they are actually playing it. Most ppl don't turn theirs on for days or weeks at a time..... I know for a fact mine hasn't been on in a few weeks and I am a pretty hardcore gamer.

hatchimatchi3376d ago

i rarely touch mine and i got mine on launch day. I bought extraction the other day, a huge mistake...

the only time i fire up the wii is when my girlfriend comes over and wants to play tetris.

the wii is garbage
