The fuck? Wii Music didn't cause Wii sales to collapse. It was doing amazingly during that period because Mario Kart and Wii Fit were still going strong. That was kind of my whole point. And then he says the price drop and Wii Sports Resort had no effect which is also completely false. He truly believes it was 100% Mario!
I wanted an answer as to why the Wii has declined so sharply after a record holiday season and the best he could come up with is people just stopped caring about the console because of Galaxy 2's existence. I guess he missed the part where I said I agreed with him on Other M too and managed to fit a mini Sakamoto rant in there. Pretty much everything else he said was entirely irrelevant.
I am disappoint. Maybe I'll have another go at it when I have the time.
What he is saying in his response is that the Wii is a failure and that it failed to "save" the gaming industry, pretty much the opposite of what he's been chanting all along up until this point. I think he is an angry, angry little man who feels ashamed for having been called out for what he is; a young guy who has read a book on marketing written by a person he looks up to who has gone on to write long tirades on his own intellectual superiority, the massive stupidity of everything not Nintendo and the "evil" gaming industry.
He really needs to make up his mind about this gen and avoid to further his ass-hatery by taking a stand either way. Either the market has grown (as it actually has) through Nintendo, MS and Sony and will total a lot more hardware than last gen or he has to admit that every single Wii customer is a purely casual gamer, having contributed nothing to the growth of the industry, subsequently admitting that every 10 million selling Nintendo title this gen is casual hogwash.
The guy has made an ass of himself and he knows it. He cites that the PS3 and 360 are failures because they fail to outsell the winner from last gen, the second and third place consoles failed to sell more than the record breaking, supreme market winner and leader from last gen, what complete and utter idiocy to say such a thing, does no one else see this? Leave him be and let someone else listen to him drone on with his incoherent drivel.
PS: How does the Wii crowd answer this guy, the god of all that is worth to know, when he himself states that Nintendo's efforts aren't good enough and that the Wii's sales are turning into Gamecube sales? Does no one see the contradiction from the beginning of his writing and all his bravado from just a while back? Can anyone take this guy seriously any longer? You have to choose between the love for the Wii (which is defended in every sales thread, disregarding the enormous sales slump as something of no importance, or even denying that it is happening) and your love for Malstrom who has made an epic ass of himself for real.
