Anti-Wii week continues: "Wii Is Nearing The End Of The Road"

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Anti-Wii week continues: "Wii Is Nearing The End Of The Road"

I posted this on that man's blog,

"It is best to use historical data to predict things like this. Based on your conclusion I don’t think you did. Take a look at the previous gen: xbox, PS2, gamecube, GBA, also add in PS1 and N64. You’ll notice that none of them showed heavily reversing trends and all died off gradually. For ten years, with the exception of the dreamcast, this sort of thing doesn’t happen in the video game industry. Why would it start now?"

That's the second time I've heard Brawl sales used as an argument against the Wii's success.

The only two problems are
1. That's how major game sales work. According to that Halo 3 sales demonstrate that nobody plays Xbox 360
2. It's not even true. Brawl's sales are kicking ass so far.



I'm a mod, come to me if there's mod'n to do. 

Chrizum is the best thing to happen to the internet, Period.

Serves me right for challenging his sales predictions!

Bet with dsisister44: Red Steel 2 will sell 1 million within it's first 365 days of sales.

Which was due to Sega losing money, which of course doesn't apply here. 



A flashy-first game is awesome when it comes out. A great-first game is awesome forever.

Plus, just for the hell of it: Kelly Brook at the 2008 BAFTAs

Why do people write this stuff, when the Wii is doing so well ?

I liked reading the comments at the end of the article.

LOL



Consoles LTD, end 2009, end 2010 - prediction

Wii -  68 million, 90 million - Wii HD in late 2011 - $249

360 - 38 million, 47 million - 720 in late 2010 - $299

PS3 - 31 million, 43 million - slim PS3 in mid 2009 - $299 

Not to mention once SSBB is launched in Europe it will be the #1 selling exclusive game on current generation home consoles. So now being the best selling game isn't good enough anymore?

Not all Final Fantasy games are sequels, guys. There are improvements on graphics and gameplay, but nearly all of the stories are different.

Yeah, 13 variations on "A ragtag band of rebels battles a powerful Empire, only to discover that a greater evil is working behind the scenes."


Off topic: Your princess is in another castle?

 

On topic: Summaries=/=Storylines, obviously there are going to be some similarities, but a change in the characters, setting, background of the characters, and names of cities or items containing different meanings that are involved in the storyline make a very different story. 

Let's compare two look alikes like Vaan and Zidane. *maybe spoilers*

Both of them are thieves and both of them are poor with no parents.  But Zidane, unlike Vaan is a Genome whom is destined to be very powerful.  Vaan just wants to be like a sky pirate.  

There are crystals that contain importance in FFIX and FFXII, but for different purposes.  The crystals(nethicite) in FFXII serve as powerful magic storyline wise, the Crystal(only one) in FFIX is what gave life to the universe and if destroyed, so is the universe.  



This will only take a moment of your time. *steals your watch*

What is with people this week and trolling in internet articles, its like that week when the guy called the Wii Piece of Shit and all the fanboys went hoorah and made their shots but then when Wii continued to sell out they just shut up...
