The Wii has stalled? More like they hit a wall

Jerell_rast: I saw this as soon as their 2009 E3 conference was over. Same recycled IP's from their first 3 years. Two Mario games, another Metroid game and ANOTHER Zelda game. It's hard for me, who grew up with the NES, to have to sit and watch this great company's games get watered down to a bunch to Wii musics, Wii fits get thrown at us along with tons of other uninteresting games.

The Wii.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not a fan of the device - it doesn't cater to my tastes (though I have one), but I find the capriciousness of the American media hilarious!

Yesterday it was the PS3. In a couple of months, if Natal doesn't fly off the shelves, it'll be the 360.

Anything for hits.

P.S. This article isn't even written by Gamespot, far as I can tell - just a blogger. Still, expect to see "news" like this if the Wii sales continue to slide.

The wii and 360 are a thing of the past. It's all about PS3 now.

ps3 and 360 rocks

wii has some very very good\few nintendo exclusives but on a full console scale,I believe it sucks

beavis4play3459d ago

since the classic SNES days, nintendo has really been a disappointment for me. back in those great days, nintendo put out so many different and interesting titles........then came the N64 and it's been downhill ever since.

With crap games coming out for it all the time? Heck, event he PS2 had some good games once and a while but the Wii was nothing but a shovelware treasure trove. You can't maintain a high rate of sales for a game machine if the games that come out are all crap. Sorry Ninty, you need to rethink your third party strategy.

Goomba123459d ago

Nintendo just needs to come out with different software. A Starfox and Pikmin sounds way more interesting to me than Galaxy 2 and another Metroid which I got less than 2 and a half years ago.

Nintendo has slipped every since Mario Kart, Fit and Brawl were released.

"is it bashing a systeme? yes

And now you are so sensitive? The same thing was done 3 consecutive years before with PS3 and now it can't do it to another console, before this gen my 2nd choice was N, but now no thanks, I prefer to read an article bashing x360 all the way, because It deserves being the crappy console without variety and the worst console ever made, but N what is doing aside of counting money, make another mario, ok, make another zelda, ok, make another metrid, ok, make another wii sport, F*cK NO!!!, and after release those games, what they going to do, another Super Smash Bros, Brawl 2? and after that what mario's time machine 2/3 and mario Cook?

what did the wii stop selling completely cause from what i hear it still sells hundreds of thousands every month. Oh i think they mean its starting to sell like the xbox or ps3.

crck3459d ago (Edited 3459d ago )

Its selling to small children and women as a interactive exercise tape or instructional video. But hey if your in that demographic then that's great for you. You'll have a steady stream of licensed crapware like Food Network: Cook or be Cooked, Dora The Explorer, The Biggest Loser and Disney Princesses. But for most people visiting this site the Wii is pretty much dead as a system for "traditional" video games.

Maddens Raiders3459d ago

hundreds of thousands every week (like you say) to hospitals, hospices, day cares and therapy clinics every week? Once those fall off, your left with soccer moms, little boys and girls with sticky fingers, uber health nuts, and a few Ninty DIEHARDS.

Do the math -- nevermind.... Iwata already is. How does that song go..?

Oh yeah.....

MegaPowa3460d ago

when they thought this was a good idea for an article

gintoki7773460d ago
