Associatedcontent: With PS3's Move and Xbox 360's Kinect, the Wii Faces Stiff Competition in the Video Game Wars.
The move will do fine
it will be just fine
One thing I like about the MOVE controller setup is that it removes that annoying cord that connects the Wiimote. That should give it an edge on it's own. Plus, they showed some good games for it, so MOVE will do fine. It will be interesting to see how things turn out later this year!
With the wave of games recently announced, I'm pretty excited about it. Move and Kinect are add-ons. So even if they fail, the 360 and PS3 can still survive as they are now, without any motion controls. While the Wii's motion controls are part of the actual system. If it fails, the whole thing fails. But we know that's not true, and the Wii has been an immense success!
I might get Move. Depends on if I can try it in stores. The Wii is supported by a wide array of audiences. There's no way it can possibly fail.
No the wii is not going anywhere it still has it's core fans who love it's games, but I can definitely see some of the casuals getting the move, also I think alot of hardcore users woill love the move because of it's accuracy and realism, just look at socom4 and sorcery for examples, the move is the real solution for every kind of gamer.
The Wii will be just fine. Neither Move nor Kinect will hurt it much. No one thought the Wii would even survive it's first YEAR in the market and look, it's been four years now and they are #1 in nearly all territories if not them all already. Nintendo had the idea right by doing this from day 1 and standard way of playing bundled in. They catered to the casual audience first then finally moving on to the hardcore market. The competition is going in reverse though and now trying to cater to the casual market. Not only that but these are add-ons; what add-ons have you really ever known to be successful? Not sure how either companies will do. Casuals aren't hardcore gamers - they will chose one and chances are they already have: Nintendo Wii Even if by some odd chance MOVE/Kinect sold impressive units, Nintendo is so far ahead with the Wii that it doesn't even matter what the competition does to them. I bet Reggie and them are all just laughing in their high chairs counting money. The real battle will be MOVE vs Wii since both are fairly similar in concept. Although the EyeToy was here, no one really cared so it's like Kinect is brand new to everyone so at least that has a chance to be in a league of it's own.
The Wii is too well established by, you know, everyone to not survive. And Kinect and The Move isn't here to replace the Wii, they're here to take a few people from that market. It just so happens that Sony and Microsoft were/are trying to do it at the same time. I didn't read the article I just see a few ignorant and a few confused people (yes Im talking about xboxalldayeveryday, he is the latter ignorant and confused.)
"The Wii is also the less serious system. True gamers enjoy detail filled, in-depth games like Alan Dark" Indeed, that Alan Dark game sure is filled with detail.
Alan Dark's a fantastic example! /s
sorry guys, Mario Redemption 2 > Alan Dark
Yes, the price is good. A family of 4 will not buy Move and 4 controllers/subs and the console for almost $700. 1/3 the price of an Xbox 360 and Kinect.
Out of all the consoles there should not be a article on can the wii survive. It sells very good every month.
If need be, the dudes at Nintendo will just crap out another Mario game real quick. Wii sports looks like it was made in 2 months, I am sure they have 5 sequels waiting on someone's desk.
my mother, she make comment about these motion controllers. she say they look like marital aids found in nightstand of loose woman.
If a Playstation Move controller can fit in one of these "loose women", they made need to see a gynecologist as soon as possible
If you have mario, you cannot fail.
Ths wii is here, all around the world, offers a decent game library, nice exclusives games and has no major technical problems, so, yes, it will certainly survive a long way.
The Wii's still doing fine, I doubt it'll stop outselling the 360/PS3 anytime soon. Regardless, I prefer my core games over most Wii games, although I still want to play Sin and Punishment, Metroid other M and Zelda Skyward sword.
the last story xenoblade metroid zelda NEW DONKEY KONG im acually gonna go buy a wii nows a great time for nintendo and 3ds will be the best portable(cfw psp rocks though)
Can a product that's become a household name, is less than half the price, and already has a huge library of games survive??? Yeah, I'd say so...
The whole premise of the article is based on the fact that Sony and Microsoft are playing catch up to a technology that has been in place for years. I wonder if the people who originally implemented motion control will be able to survive... I'm sure Nintendo, who just announced a crapload of first-party exclusives (which suck btw according to this article) will not go belly up because their competitors suddenly feel the urge to be copycats. There are wireless nunchuks available out there, so that point is irrelevant. What makes a detailed, in-depth game? The 500 FPS from Xbox that are the same shit level after level with different scenery and dressing? Side note, Half Life 2 is an awesome game and not just another Halo clone, thank God. How can you be less serious when your profits are through the ceiling? The graphics argument is valid but tired. If I play a game and it's boring, I don't care how good the graphics are. Lastly, you destroy all credibility when you write an article questioning Nintendo and your only sources are from Microsoft and Sony websites. Real objective you moron.
