Dave Perry: 360, PS3 to eventually steal Wii gamers

After being asked about his views on the importance of simplicity of control in a console context, he stated that while the Wii is a good starting point to encourage the all-important focus on better gaming interfaces, it isn't necessarily the best.

More like steal BACK gamers that went to the Wii for some instant-fun, if anything.

Consumers aren't not stupid, they realize that the Wii is, hum... "Special" so they looking forward for a best video games experience...

"Consumers aren't not stupid"

LOL! You're putting that theory to the test Mr. Grammar.

with both the first two posters, the wii seems like a fad, it will be tough to make a lot of great games for it

Wii is more powerful than PS2. Were there great games for PS2?

-Metal Gear Solid 3
-Shadow of the Collossus

I didn't quite understand what you were trying to say.

As for anyone disagreeing with me, although the Wii lets families play together and gets mom, dad, son, daughter, grandpa, grandma, and whoever else into the Wii game at the moment, they're not rushing out to buy the newest title, or peripheral. It's still the same person that bought the Wii that will likely purchase any new software, as well as hardware.
Maybe once they get tired of playing the 40 mini-games in Brain Age, or WiiFit, they'll opt out to a full game, whether that be SMG, SSBB, some next Zelda game, or something on another console/handheld.

If you still don't understand, what I'm saying is that the market really isn't being expanded as much as we're told to believe. People ARE playing games, but they're not buying games; they're playing whatever's around the house. It's still more or less the core group that previously owned consoles that's buying these things, and, evidentally, getting tired of them in a few weeks to months.

I'm no analyst, but just like everyone else, I observe things, and am capable of finding a pattern, as well as voicing my opinion.
Flame at your own discretion.

i'm talking controlls, after a while people wont want to use the wiimote for standard games, and out of all those games mrk01 mentioned, try imagine playing those with a wii controller over a standard ps3 or 360 controller. it just doesnt work

Hmm. Yet another prognosticator I happen to agree with. I'm in the wrong business.
