Honestly, i don't care either way. Having the Wii as it is, having a "Nintendo Console 5" coeval with 360, it wouldn't matter, because they would still be populated by Nintendo games. Software is why i follow Nintendo, because lord knows their hardware hasn't been all that compelling up until Wii. Motion controls are certainly fun, and a necessary step for the industry, but i could have been perfectly happy without them


Sure we wouldn't have the silky smooth tilt-control of Mario Kart and Secret Rings, wouldn't have the surpassing FPS controls, or the immensely gratifying motion-controlled kills of NMH, but it would still be a Nintendo console in the end

Monster Hunter: pissing me off since 2010.

Considering that I'd rather buy COD: WaW on my Wii rather than my 360, my answer would have to be no.

Speaking of WaW for Wii, how is that game? I'm considering picking it up today.

Bet between Slimbeast and Arius Dion about Wii sales 2009:

If the Wii sells less than 20 million in 2009 (as defined by VGC sales between week ending 3d Jan 2009 to week ending 4th Jan 2010) Slimebeast wins and get to control Arius Dion's sig for 1 month.

If the Wii sells more than 20 million in 2009 (as defined above) Arius Dion wins and gets to control Slimebeast's sig for 1 month.

Would I trade better games and more potential for glorified reskins of 10-year-old games wrapped in Marketing Shinies (tm)? Hell no. Give me the console that drives gaming forward; give me my Wii.

Complexity is not depth. Machismo is not maturity. Obsession is not dedication. Tedium is not challenge. Support gaming: support the Wii.

What do I hate about modern gaming? I hate tedium replacing challenge, complexity replacing depth, and domination replacing entertainment. I hate the outsourcing of mechanics to physics textbooks, art direction to photocopiers, and story to cheap Hollywood screenwriters. I hate the confusion of obsession with dedication, style with substance, new with gimmicky, old with obsolete, new with evolutionary, and old with time-tested.
There is much to hate about modern gaming. That is why I support the Wii.

Well obviously everyone wants to have a super console that has motion control, HD graphics, amazing first and third party support, and a great online community, all at a cheap price. However, no console will ever be that perfect. The Wii and the HD consoles offer different experiences and different games. If Nintendo fans wanted to trade the Wiimote for horsepower they would have bought a 360/PS3 from the get go.

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