Nice read Neos.

And come on there is no doubt that the Wii and PS2 are not the same.

The Wii is targeting the whole market from the beginning while it takes for the PS2 several years before it was targeting whole the market with games like Eye toy, singstar etc...

Wii started as a casual console PS2 became one.

 You're completely right, but this isn't what i meant as a status. I mean it's now accepted and known among all people, you're no geek if you have a Wii, the same that was when you have/had a Ps2, the system everyone knows.



Neos - "If I'm posting in this thread it's just for the lulz."
Tag by the one and only Fkusumot!


 

^I see nothing wrong with the thread title or the 1st post itself seeing how he only implied that Wii took the PS2 status, and it's justified by the fact that both of them are (similar in one aspect, hopefully it counts) video game consoles...

How funny ,some fanboys trying to convince themselves the Wii is inheriting the PS2 throne .Be real men ,the Wii wont rock the gaming world .Its games wont go any further than they already have and the support it gets in this technology driven business wont be much more than what it already gets .NIntendo games ,minigames ,shovelware ,some middle to low budget japanese games and quick cash ins .I have been hearing you all the year having orgasms out of enyoyment about Wii sales but I continue to see the same thing in the industry ;the big games go to PS3-360-PC and the cheapo spin-offs or quick cash-ins go to the Wii .

 Well, it doesn't look like "It has only been 1 year. Focus is starting to see shift, just wait," will satisfy you but would you actually agree to what Neos's point was? To quote him:"I mean it's now accepted and known among all people, you're no geek if you have a Wii, the same that was when you have/had a Ps2, the system everyone knows." Or maybe not...?

Translation to the non-real men, ie, children, female teenagers, young adult females, mothers, middle aged and older, not to mention the alternative life styles, plus those that can't afford the higher prices, (ie, about what 85% of the potential gaming population?):

If you want games that Diomedes likes, buy the PS3, X360 or buy them for your PC.  If you want different quirky games that are fun for you (which you seem to want right now), buy the Wii. 

 Oh, and Nintendo doesn't want the status of the PS2.  It wants the status of a PS1 or better.  That is, the game console that made the most money, since the PS1 made over 100B yen more in its main years than the PS2 did.  (from Sony's annual reports  http://www.sonet.co.uk/SonyInfo/IR/financial/ar/Archive.html)

 

 

 



Torturing the numbers.  Hear them scream.

Nice story neos.

In fact, some of my own friends are interested in getting a Wii, but just can't find one.



Currently Playing: Mario Kart 7, Mario Kart 8, Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon, The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask, Super Smash Bros for Wii U

Predictions:

Super Mario Galaxy will pass Super Mario 64 in total sales CORRECT!

My parents are getting a Wii now for themselves, that's proof its the biggest thing ever in gaming, my mom hated gaming when I was young



 

Predictions:Sales of Wii Fit will surpass the combined sales of the Grand Theft Auto franchiseLifetime sales of Wii will surpass the combined sales of the entire Playstation family of consoles by 12/31/2015 Wii hardware sales will surpass the total hardware sales of the PS2 by 12/31/2010 Wii will have 50% marketshare or more by the end of 2008 (I was wrong!!  It was a little over 48% only)Wii will surpass 45 Million in lifetime sales by the end of 2008 (I was wrong!!  Nintendo Financials showed it fell slightly short of 45 million shipped by end of 2008)Wii will surpass 80 Million in lifetime sales by the end of 2009 (I was wrong!! Wii didn't even get to 70 Million)

I really wish people would just upgrade their PCs every 4 to 5 years and let consoles die.. =/ oh well... one could dream.

on-topic: the Wii is successful because the media choose it as their main focus of praise. If it got the negativity that the PS3 and 360 had it would be in last place.
