An employee at Gamestop the other day told me about that the Wii was intended to be Nintendo's last jab at stationary console gaming.


Your first problem is listening to some twit from Gamestop.


How true that is. Last time I was there the guy asked me if I wanted to pre-order StarCraft 2, which was only just announced a few weeks ago and might not be released for a couple years. But just to explore the stupidity, I figured I'd ask him if the min reqs were known yet. He said no, but that Vista would be required. And the hilarious thing is that the only thing that is known about SC2 is that it will run on Vista or XP! (see the SC2 FAQ)

Bottom line, never, ever, ever listen to a Gamestop employee. And with regards to the subject of this thread, the vast majority of Gamestop employees I've talked to have been anti-nintendo, so you can especially ignore something like this.


Hey, ass, don't put a single mask on all Gamestop employees. I work at Gamestop, and in my area, we really don't care who wins as long as we can get reservations and sell subscriptions to you.

Saying stuff like "never listen to a Gamestop employee" is so flaming ignorant that you deserve to be banned in my eyes. How dare you lump all of us together.


 Why not... most of you are 'wanks' anyway... it's a generalisation but I visit many EB stores all the time and the type of people they employ are wankers, that's just how it is.  You might be the minority.


How about we say that 90% of GS emplyoyees are idiots. That work?

it must be MASSIVELY different as to who they employ over here in australia as compared to america then...... eb employees are constantly dribbling sh*% over the counter at me, it cracks me up that they also think that they are the bees knees! ffs they work in retail.....



hmm, I guess gamestop employees vary by location because the gamestop i go to are full of people who make fun of their customers in front of other customers, no doubt. It is reasonable to assume that the people who apply for gamestop or EB are gamers and as gamers, they lean towards one brand favorably, might explain this guy with his nintendo's last console.



It always makes me laugh hystericaly when someone begins a sentence with, "The guy at gamestop told me that............" Those people don't know jack. The guys at Gamestop told me and my wife on several different occasions that there would be plenty of Wiis for everyone this Christmas and didn't know what everyones concern was. I was also told that the Spiderman 3 game would be different from other movie tie in games and would actually be good. He did offer me a free poster however.



Konnichiwa, never missing an excuse to rag on Nintendo games, lol.

Well if he meant this would be Nintendo's last console if it didn't go over well like the Gamecube, then yeah, that may of been. Still doubt it since Nintendo have such conservative buisness models, they'd still make money off it. Either way it sounds like he was making crap up though.

 Obviously you guys are going to have your opinions, I understand that. I just don't appreciate the bashing. I work hard at what I do, and I think anybody who's read the one article, and few posts I've made know that I'm no dummy when it comes to this stuff.

I guess I know what it's like to be Sony now

Sorry cdude1034, I hope I don't generalize here.  The EB and GS stores next to me, don't seem to employ informed people.  I have had to correct them more than once when hearing them speak to their customers.  Kinda confuses me.  The employees seem like gamers, so I don't know why they never seem to know what they are talking about, at the stores next to me.  ::shrug::  Though I don't see any bias towards one console or another in general.  I do see certain employees have their preferences they try to push, but not overall in one direction or the other.

Nintendo still has too much power, respect, and money to end now. Until they started to lose profits for a constant amount of years, they are here to stay. GO NINTENDO!!!

Nah. I was reffering that I would love a Mario FPS.
A good Mario FPS with a good co op singleplayer.

Out of curiousity, uh, what do you mean by single player co-op?  Am I missing something?  Are you playing with yourself then?  Or do you mean plain story mode co-op
