I don't see how a "hard-core" gamer would want this as the console of choice. X360 and Ps3 are far better systems for "hard-core" gaming. Crap man get a PS2 and an eye toy if you want to throw your body around your living room. I'm sure wii has it's place but not in my home.

Super Mario and Zelda invented the hardcore gamer.

Jesus, I don't think i know any hardcore gamers that wouldn't want Super Smash Bros Brawl or Twilight Princess.

B4 you give me static about how I should spend my money. $199 may be a good price for a system but that does not mean that everyone should buy one because it's $199. Be honest man if all three systems were the same price I would guess the wii would not be as popular as it is. Either way all told my point was it's not going to get my money. No matter the price. And actually pac-man and space invaders invented the hard core gamer. I spent more quarters on those machines I could of purchased all three systems four times over.

The fact that a high-level MS director believes that the Wii caters to both hardcore AND casual gamers will still probably have no bearing on 360 fans who believe otherwise.
