How Well Do You Think Nintendo's Wii Did Overall?

Wii clearly Dominated the 7th Gen 95 65.52%
 
Even though it may have w... 40 27.59%
 
Wii really shouldn't be ... 10 6.90%
 
Total:145

It obviously won 7th gen, but I can't help but feel that it may have screwed Nintendo over in the long run, particularly with third party multiplatforms.

It did spectacularly well.
It's one of the highest selling consoles of all time, it made Nintendo a metric fuckton of money, and it changed the face of gaming.



Like the console itself; outstanding, but still far under its potential



The Wii stopped what had been 3 consecutive generations of decline in terms of home console sales for Nintendo. The fact that it had virtually no quality 3rd party support shows just how powerful an innovative concept and quality marketing can be. Some things could have been done better, especially towards the latter end of the system's life, but I think Nintendo played it as best as they could have for the most part. Time will tell what the lasting impact of the Wii will be but when you look at things that are now standard like Kinect, which was clearly a response to the motion control the Wii introduced, there's no doubt it left a clear mark on the industry. When you factor in the amount of money it made, I would definitely say it was a win for Nintendo.



Never argue with an idiot.  They will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.

Wii was successful businesswise. The Wii made by far the most money of the 3 home gaming systems in the 7th generation, and even if the PS3 would go on to oustell the Wii in the long run (since Sony systems tend to have long legs), Wii would still be the most successful one out of the bunch, economically.


Sony and Microsoft might have made less overall, but they destroyed Nintendo in overall third party sales.

and? First party titles make the company more money.


Thats great. Nintendo expressed regret with not having the core titles and making profit off of them like their competitors. That was probably their only regret with the Wii.

had nintendo (unsuccessfully) tried to appease to 3rd parties with wii, it wouldn't have been the success it was.

 Don't let bias cloud your judgement. Nintendo sold solidly over sixty million in sales with third parties on their side.

bias? what are you talking about?

 the wii simply  wouldn' have been what it was had the system been another GC. and like i told you before, nintendo games dominated nes and snes, just like all their other systems.

Nintendo lacked third party on the GC and everyone thought the system was just for children. Look up any review of what people thought about the Gamecube, it was killed by the perception around it rather than what it truly had. Nintendo dominated the gaming world when they had third parties strongly with them and weak competition. 



Very well, but with flaws.
